Wendy Davis and the Texas Democrats are attempting to attack Texas Attorney General and GOP governor nominee Greg Abbott. But thanks to this Photoshop, whatever attack they wanted to launch is likely to blow up in their faces.

Or, it would if the Texas media bothers to report on it accurately.

The photoshopped image appears on this Progress Texas website.

The problem: Abbott has been confined to a wheelchair since an accident in 1984. Progress Texas depicts him standing up in the image above.

This isn’t the first time Davis’ allies have misfired over Abbott’s injury. Last October, Battleground Texas sent out a mass email that began saying “Greg Abbott walks into a house in El Paso.”

In January 2014, Battleground Texas activists were caught on tape mocking Abbott for his injury.

Update: Incredible. Not only is Progress Texas defending its photoshop:

They’re tripling down on it.

The Juicebox Mafia has yet to be housebroken by any adults in the Texas Democratic cabal.

I find it ironic that the party of FDR should be trying to turn a paraplegic Republican into an able-bodied man. Or maybe it's consistent in its own way. After all, didn't they bend over backwards for many years to portray FDR as able-bodied, although it took some trickery to make it appear that he could walk unassisted? I read that when FDR campaigned by train, he would sometimes stand on the platform behind the caboose and take a few steps but that he had braces hidden beneath his pant legs and had a railing to hold on to in front of him. Otherwise, he could not have taken those steps without falling down. Apparently, the media knew of his condition but played along with the effort to make him seem more physically robust than he was. I'm sure most of them supported him politically or things might have been very different.

Haven't they also been pushing bizarre lies about his injuries? I believe is plays into that.

Ironic that they're going after an issue (Equal Pay) that has been debunked as throughly as "Trickle down economics".

Must be tough campaigning on neurotic obsessions rather than hard issues.
