There is one and only one Texan of my acquaintance who could convince me that Dewhurst is remotely vaguely acceptable and that is the sainted 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jerry Edwin Smith who has recently been setting the pace in Texas for pushing Eric Cantor's minions around and upholding Texas's determination to defund Planned Barrenhood. Jerry Edwin is too busy to take time from bashing Obozo's tools to make statements as to what is obvious to just about every legitimate conservative: Dewhurst is just another GOP-E (which, btw, has nothing necessarily to do with his personal bank account and everything to do with the fact that he is just another dull as dishwater, boring, wannabe placeholder with no particular crusade in mind who just thinks that the title US Senator would look good in front of his name and is willing to "compromise with anyone and anything to get that title. I knew Jerry when he attended Yale and Yale Law and he and I were both Reagan state chairs in 1976 when Ronaldus Maximus in 1976 when he challenged Feckless Ford.
I don't know who you were quoting at #58 but I know this: No compromise with Obamunism or Romneyism is in order. If government comes to a screeching halt as a result, that would be a good thing.
Outside of Texas, convince fieldmarshaldj and you convince me. He and I seldom disagree. Cruz is the political equivalent of most of the fieldmarshal's homepage photo gallery. Dewhurst, Cornyn, Hutchison, and their money-grubbing circle of elitists are the political version of the Helen Thomas photo.
Between Barbara Bush, George Herbert Walker Bush (the elder) formerly known as Congressman "Rubbers", Laura Bush, Kay Bailey Hutchison, and John (loves such "GOP" candidates as Lisa Murkowski and Mike Castle and every other issue whore running for the Senate as a GOP phony and snoozemeister) Cornyn, the Texas GOP-E does not enjoy much of a positive reputation with conservatives nationally.
Did that yesterday going back to about December of last year and, other than that on this thread by an obviously paid shill, found virtually no open support of Dewhust by anyone.
I also read a number of ngat’s post on other threads as well. That to proved an interesting exercise.
A scent about as subtle as a garbage dump in Tennessee in July.
I saw a few Cruz yard signs in Williamson County yesterday, so maybe he is doing some work in the Republican parts of the Austin Metro Area. I sure hope so.
I am disgusted with Dewhurst's distortions about the appellate brief Cruz was ask to work on by his employer.
I also remember that Dewhurst was one of those defending the proposed payroll tax that basically taxed an employee's income while it was in the hands of the employer. I will concede that Dewhurst is not as bad as Straus on social issues, but he has been flakey on conservative issues at times.
