Skip to comments.Cruz: Tea party ‘overwhelmingly’ behind Romney
Posted on 08/05/2012 4:48:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Ted Cruz, who rode a tea party wave to win the Texas Republican Senate nomination last week, said Sunday the movement will overwhelmingly support Mitt Romney in the November presidential election.
Mr. Cruz said tea party activists will rally in defense of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee because theyre energized to defeat President Obama.
I have spoken with literally thousands and thousands of tea party activists, and I have yet to met a single tea party leader that is not going to vote for Mitt Romney and work hard for him, Mr. Cruz said on Fox News Sunday.
Our country is in crisis, and weve got to stop this Obama agenda if were going to preserve opportunity for our kids and grandkids.(continued)

“Ain’t gonna happen, so scram!”
Please expound on what you mean by “scram”.
ABO ‘common “DENSE”’: “Liberalism destroyed America. Let’s elect another one President”
I've said this before, and I'll say it again. Freepers are .025% of web traffic. Obama won by 6% in 2008. Pro or con, freepers won't decide the outcome of 2012. This is a pretty good forum for airing and batting around conservative arguments that the mainstream conservative magazines won't touch with a barge pole. However, I wouldn't get too het up about it one way or the other. We don't decide elections, except in coalition with the vast majority of people who don't follow politics at all.
Well if we are liberal supporters than you are a Marxist supporter using your logic.
THE BIG LIE:
Mitt Romney is pro-abortion. No, he is not.
It's hard to find a Romney supporter who doesn't hate Romney, or one who agrees with much of any part of his public record.
And you call us "irrational"?
LOL...that's an eleven on an irony scale of ten.
I’m voting for a conservative. You are voting for a liberal. Which of the two are ‘closer to marxism and which voter is closer to supporting it?
Try to use basic reasoning. You really look stupid with that statement.
I see the Freetard Mitten Derangement crew is in glorious [gin] bloom tonight...
Oh I don’t know. Looks to me like part of Romney plan is to create jobs starting with energy and the Keystone Pipeline.
So basically you are saying there is no difference between Mitt and Obama as they are both liberals. I can’t believe you really believe that. You are being intellectually dishonest.
Ronald Reagan wasn’t conservative enough either at the time.
How’d that work for us?
Since your path is the only true way to be a conservative - at least in your mind - who are you going to vote for on the presidential ticket?
Let’s hear it.
And you are a BIG LIAR. His personal donations to Planned Barrenhood and his laws signed show he is in support. What he says now matters not a whit.
Oh, and you anti-Romney types “are what you are”: Obama supporters. If you can label us, we can label you. Obama thanks you for your support.
I go by what he says now. So Screw You!
Mitt Romney’s default position on abortion is a judicial supremacist one. In other words, abortion on demand. He thinks courts make our laws, and that everyone must bow to them, even when they violate the Constitution and the people’s rights in the worst possible ways.
He compounds his gross error by denying the first principle of the republic, that all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with the unalienable right to life. He says the right to life should be left to a vote. In other words, he is, by definition, a pro-choice democrat.
And last but not least, he thinks states should be able to decide to alienate the supreme right if they want to.
I repeat: He always has been, and remains, a pro-choice democrat.
No one depicts Romney as Savior—
Hes told us many times that he “saved” the Olympics and to please let him “save” the United States...
But theres at least one big catch...
The way Willard was the “savior” of the 2002 Winter Olympics was to spend 50% again of our tax money as much as the guys originally running the show were spending...
When Willard was through he had spent 1.5 BILLION in 3 years..
Much of it on “stimulus” type frills for his cronies and not on the Olympics...
To “save” the US the same way Willard would have to increase our national debt by TRILLIONS more than Obama has it now...
Right now the national debt is $16 TRILLION..
If its the same in January and IF Willard was to win the White house by the time he left in 2017 he will have added another $8 TRILLION to our debt...at the least..
I owe the government $140,000 right now for my share..
Willard would make it $220,000 or more...
My “savior” he isnt...
Nor is he the3 “savior” of my country...
Though he likes to think he is...
Palin. You can join me in voting for a conservative or join liberals in voting for a liberal. Your choice.
Live with it.
Go vote for Obama and be done with it.
And nothing says "Republican Revolution" and "impeachment" like a Clintonian plurality.
I'll be praying for a plurality, and voting for one, too.
When he tells you that Christians must accept homosexuals remember your current position.
My, my...such anger. I know supporting libs is stressful and makes you lose control of rational discourse, but no thanks. Besides, you didn’t buy me dinner first.
So you have no principles, eh?
“Try to use basic reasoning. You really look stupid with that statement.”
Precisely. There was no reasoning behind your statement and I came back at you with one just as absurd. I take it you are voting for Goode in Virginia. If not who? So how many states is Goode running in? What chance does he have of turning this country around in the next for years. The answer is none.
At least there is a chance with Mitt. If Obama gets in for another for years that could very well put this country over the edge that will take a very long time to recover if ever. We are coming up on $16 billion is debt but I guess things like that don’t bother you. I guess people out of work does not bother you. I guess people losing their life savings does not bother you.
“I always wondered what those Paulbots would do when they had to admit he didnt have a chance.”
The several that I know are doing an illiterate blackmail strategy.
They are telling Romney people they can’t win without his 5 percent support, and they won’t vote for Romney, and they DEMAND that Romney voters vote for Paul........or else.
They may be the dumbest politicos to ever have walked the face of the earth.
My undying respect 2ndDivisionVet.
Well Norm, I’m not a Christian. I am though, a Zionist Jew, and I am very rational. I’m rational enough to realize that 4 more years of the Kenyan Marxist will be a disaster from which this nation will not recover for generation. And since Romney WILL be the nominee, I don’t think there’s much choice in this matter, votewise.
Put her on the ticket and I would not only vote for her, but work for her campaign in any way I could.
Until she appears on the national ticket and has a real shot at unseating Obama and his politburo I will be forced to vote for whoever has a chance to do that. Writing her in won’t help us get rid of the enemy.
Too many years in the Infantry - you shoot the closest threat first and then move to the next one. Obama is the embodiment of everything I served and fought AGAINST while in uniform.
Romney was my LAST choice.
I think Obama pisses people off to such an extent, that the Tea Party would be lining up behind Michael Moore if he ran against him...
People have to hold their noses because Romney STINKS. When something stinks so bad you have to hold your nose, it's nature's way of telling you that that "something" is either toxic or rotten. Ignoring your wise, faithful nose is a mistake.
I'm voting for a plurality -- the last time a liberal Democrat was elected to the presidency on a plurality, he got impeached. The time before that a liberal Democrat was elected to the presidency on a plurality, he got hammered by the Republican Revolution and was forced to move right. Seeing as how we're going to end up with a liberal Democrat president whether it's Obama or Romney, the best bet is to vote for a plurality. And the only way to do that is to vote third party.
People, HEED YOUR NOSE. As Snoopy said, "The eye can be deceived, but the nose knows."
Yeah, that's the kind of absurd non sequitur I want in a President...
Nice. So you’re part of the FR “thought crimes unit”?
So, exactly how are you different than the Left again?
My principles are to defend this nation against all enemies - both foreign and domestic.
Obama is clearly an enemy of America. Romney is many things - no he’s not a conservative - but he is no enemy of America.
Your principles are different than those?
You have no clue. My God. You are voting for a liberal and calling it conservative, then trashing conservatives for sticking and voting for what they believe in.
There is nothing absurd in what I said. It’s 100% true and factual. Does VOTING FOE A LIBERAL not set off warning buzzers in your head?
Im not the one pushing the liberal...
RomneyBots get angry...
Why did you leave out - TO HATE EVIL as God does?
until Romney convinces me that a person like me can fit in his world I am holding fire.
What part of Mormonism do you WANT to fit in? What part of a cult leader do you think is honest? His master is satan, satan is the father of LIES/LIARS. You want 'convincing' from evil?
Speaking of fire - if the fire was turned up 7x hotter would you be convinced to bow? Read Daniel to see what TRUE Christians went through and NEVER would bow. And Who was in the furnace with them?
And as Christians did they feel they had to love the king that was so good to them - after all, they were taught to love one another. NOPE! Never entered their mind to bow - as they were God focused so they NEVER bowed.
This election is separating the wheat from the chaff, IMO It is showing OURSELVES what is really is stronger inside - good or evil. God already knows. Do we believe HIM like the 3 men in the furnace? He always shows up when there is total belief - which means 'no doubt'. So let anything crumble - it doesn't matter as God ALWAYS protects His own and anyone bowing to evil is not His own!
Make them buy you dinner at Chick-fil-A
Go for it - he feeds on nothing but evil!
Wrong! We had NO choice from the GOP-E.
Now that the GOP-E has made its bed, it can lie in it.
Of course you are right, BUT considering what America could be up against, we need every conservative voting NO to nobama. Take no chances.
Finny, here’s the reality. An ABOer is no different than abused wife.
“This time will be different. He’s a good man. He just gets ...upset with me sometimes.”
And the GOP will NEVER do anything but abuse conservative voters.
We HAVE, and it is because of his RECORD, not because of "hate," that we reject him.
The irrational folks are the ones who are ignoring every instinct in their bones that is telling them Romney stinks, and voting for a stone-cold liberal original author of ObamaCare anyway out of sheer fear of a skinny America-hating fraud.
What is this we crap? Is that turd in your pocket your best friend?
Unfortunately, you are.
You just don’t seem to realize it.
This is some of the reasons I will not be voting for Mr. Obama. Nor will I do anything that eases his reelection.
When some political party has as it's nominee a pro life and marriage candidate, (redundant IMO), we will be joyful. In the book of Hebrews,toward the end of the letter, is an exhortation to the faithful. You are right, we should not fear that if Mr. Romney would lead, he also will be called to account. Let us pray he fulfills his tasks with joy should he become elected.
The more upright we can make the legislature as well, the better. I say thank you to Mr. Cruz. This needs to be said when a leader does good. Maybe more often than the doubt and vitriol.
I'm not voting for a liberal because you are scared of a Obama.
