have grand standed but I think the underlying main factor is that he started the said George Texas Republican Party If you analyze the it looks to me that when the governor went Into lhal Job as SMU he smelled something fishy and said the program is going lo be phased Strake Dements has refused to say much more about the SMU I am not going to talk SMU to he said Ive done all the talking about SMU
