David's credibility as a speaker and TV issue commentator flows from his experience and success in the public and private sector.
Never at a loss for an opinion (thanks to his relentless study of the issues), David has strong views on the issues of the day.
I think his legacy, really I've said many times, is the Texas miracle. What we have today with our economy, there's no question in my mind that that would not exist without his leadership.
I think if you want to look at what Governor Dewhurst has done the last ten years, he's helped model this state to run like a business. He brought his business expertise to state government.
Because of his compassion, because of his ability to understand conflicting perspectives, and because of his impeccable manners, and finally, his very persuasive charm, that he will be remembered as a really good lieutenant governor who always tried to do the right things. I believe his charm is part of his legacy, and those impeccable manners.
He also was a man of honor because he did what he said he was going to do. I knew that if he said that he would follow through with something, I would trust him to do that. And he did, 100% of the time. He was one of the greatest advocates for veterans in the state of Texas that we have ever known, and we're going to miss his leadership in the state government.
That was Lt. Governor Dewhurst's genius. He was not only getting members of the Senate to work together, but also the members of the pro-life groups and the different segments. As a result, we have probably one of the strongest [pro-life] laws in the country [in Texas].
He was a real statesman. And provided leadership in higher education that this state had not seen before.
