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)

Is the TP now GOpe?
We are running out of folks and organizations to toss under the bus.
The Susan B Anthony organization.
Sarah Palin ,Michelle Bachmann,Rick Santorum, Herman Cain,Dick Cheney,George W, Rush .
We need to raise the bus to be able to fit more under there.
When one has the TRUTH they hate evil - so what you say is BS - and the opposite of TRUTH - there is no reason to hear it.
All the talk convincing others that EVIL is GOOD is laughable. Suckers are hell bent to learn the hard way so enjoy your roller coaster ride that you will never forget!
It’s just a fact of life - what you sow you reap, MORE than you sow, LATER than you sow.
Every single third party vote, no matter who casts it and no matter which candidate it is cast for, will reduce the popular mandate of the winner and count toward a plurality. There's good solid sense in voting for a plurality if it ends up being Obama vs Romney.
Amen, Brother (or Sister) FReeper. ABO is fueled exclusively by hysteria, and hysteria is a sure path to bad choices.
Romney woos his enemies/conservatives and their audience and NOT his friends. Learn something unless you want to be a lap dog all your life!
Reagan wasn’t conservative enough for who? Only RINOs seem to think we have forgotten who gave Reagan all the trouble.
The only ones trashing Reagan are the RINOs like socialist Romney and his liberal dad and some liberaltarians, who hate anyone that holds the socially conservative beliefs Reagan held. It is these same RINOs and liberaltarians who love Romney so much. They don’t care that he’s pro gay, and instituted both socialist medicine with $50.00 abortions and gay marriage in Massachusetts. They don’t even seem to care that he lies about everything and has no problem confiscating your tax dollars, known as fees, and spreading the wealth — especially to the green community and welfare recipients. Winning is all that matters to them and as Romney believes, you don’t need principles to do that.
It’s your socialist Romney who doesn’t want to go back to Reagan/Bush. Do you feel the same way?
Let us pray he fulfills his tasks with joy should he become elected.
Oh I shouldnt worry about thet...
IF he was to buy the White House hed be so joyful hed be laughing his butt off at the Conservatives who put him there as he kicked sand in their faces...
Why should I be “zotted?”. Because I hold views contrary to yours?
Once again, please tell me how you’re different from the intolerant Left?
What on earth is rational about backing 100% the real author of ObamaCare, a guy who embraces the global warming scam, a guy who thinks it's right for the government to force adoption agencies to cooperate with homosexual couples who want to adopt kids, a guy who advanced on-demand tax-funded abortion, and a guy with a very solid record of appointing activist judges? Backing an agent of all those things 100% is rational for conservatives? Because of hysterical fear of a fraud like Obama? WRONG, p-shootist. It is desperate, THAT is what it is.
ABO is an affliction and I pray to God that conservatives get over it before November.
The election ballot should be choice of Giant Douchebag or a Turd Sandwich. That being said, Romney will get my vote for the sake of the country. If elections actually take place in Nov, we have to get Obama out, the country wont’ survive another 4 yrs of him.
I agree . He will win. And the ABO crowd will run like scalded dogs every time he goes full lib. Failure being an orphan.
As a Zionist I’d think a rational person would be sick of libs screwing over Jews. We know by his record that you can’t trust him so why should his stance on Israel be any different than his flips on the rest?
Rationally answer that. He has screwed everyone on BOTH SIDES for crying ot loud.
False. He never said anything such thing...you append that on his behalf- it's not so; but fits your assessment of him
Gorush: If you think Romney will save us you
I was addressing this claim from gorush(who was speaking to another poster's assessment of Romney, not of MR's personal estimation....saviors save us by definition(no religious undertones need be assumed,btw), which no one has claimed, including MR; he is,tho, a politician who his making a case that he's the best guy for the job betwixt the two principals. It's what pols do.
No, remember how conservatives kept saying during the Reagan years “let Reagan be Reagan” because he moved to the left on some issues, and his Supreme Court picks were underwhelming.
You believe anything you read positive on romney. Imagine that - you were a LIBERAL all along!
See the things you learn about yourself when you back is against the wall? What’s inside comes out!
Well, good luck with the game of musical chairs or whack a mole. Turning a blind eye and supporting the enemy within never won a battle or war I’m aware of.
By fun, I mean it’s going to be interesting watching all the Romney bashers twist themselves in knots over a tea party favorite being so supportive of somebody they hate with a passion. Does this mean they would never support Cruz now? Because if he supports Romney clearly he can have no real conservative principles, right?
We are in a desperate battle to save our nation, and the enemy is in our wire. Some of you would rather shoot at the trees than at the onrushing enemy. Fascinating.
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...
WEAKNESS hates STRENGTH - and EVIL hates LIGHT.
Expose/put the LIGHT on the POS Romney and his oath to his Mormon hierarchy which supersedes an oath to America - and watch the deceived numbskulls squeal!
Bring up his anti American accomplishments and the deceived run to throw a cover over it! It really is funny to watch!
If youre talking about Obama being the enemy ruishing from the front you better check your flank and rear...
Willard is fast creeping up and shooting you in the back...
I remember a number of instances in historical wartime of many soldiers following incompetent leaders to their deaths. Others did not and lived. Later they were held up as examples of intelligent thinking and their leaders got the grief they deserved posthumously. Now lest you think I am going to slam the military, I have a daughter and son in law in the USAF. I love the military.
That said, Soldiers follow orders. This isn’t a true military battle and Mitt/GOP isn’t your CO or XO.
So think for yourself. Or follow incompetent leaders into the obvious ambush. Your choice.
Kind of like the people who don't want to accept the fact that a third-party vote favors neither major party candidate?
Kind of like that? Like the ones who insist that a third party vote favors the incumbent, not wanting to hear about how it certainly failed to favor incumbent HW Bush?
Kind of like the people who believe so completely that "we couldn't survive another four years of Obama" that they don't want to hear anything different? Like the fact that a plurality win for Obama could well make him vulnerable enough that he could be impeached, the way Clinton was?
Kind of like that?
Conservatives are stubborn and stupid when it comes to winning. There will be three conservatives to split the vote, and of course, the Leftist wins. No doubt some of these geniuses still think they were smart to vote for Ross Perot, thus giving Bill Clinton the presidency for eight years. We are still reaping the rewards of that debacle as Hillary muddles her way through as Sec. of State.
“Kind of like the people who don’t want to hear about Romney’s record?”
They are aware of his record. Upthread we had one tell us Mitt was anti abortion.
Well that’s not his REAL record. But fear makes people believe all sorts of stupidity. I believe Stockholm Syndrome is on full display with the ABO crowd.
So his record is a good one and you EVIL STUPID PEOPLE just don’t understand.
This isnt a true military battle and Mitt/GOP isnt your CO or XO.
Willard would get AAM killed..
He hates the US military and hes incompetant to boot...
And besides, yes, he will depict his record in the best light possible- they all do. He turned around the O-games and by the accts from nearly all observers did very well. He sells that...so? Accentuate the positive; tout your accomplishments. Salesmanship!
Anyway not trying to sway your thinking-don't care-not relevant; moreover, typing on this infernal phone and watching Olympics and need to refocus thusly, so will bid you adieu.
You're advocating making the most powerful Republican and the most powerful American a guy who fully buys into the global warming hoax such that he advocated in 2008 that the world needs a carbon plan and that it should be a a "worldside solution, not an American one." Those chains of oppression laid down by a guy you VOTED FOR would weigh equally on us all, surrendering American soveriegnty over energy and food production and consumption, to a global body in the name of "saving the planet." If you don't really understand that Romney is an agent of all that and more, then you are of no use to your country.
No, no, no... Mitt LOVES the military. And the ABOs can’t wait until he continues the homosexualization of it so there will be more LOVE to go around for everyone!
Now THAT is love and respect for our military.
Mitt did state he has no intention of returning to DADT after all...
Willard was a TWO Time draft dosdger...
Then he insulted and spat on the US troops in 2008...
But you know all that ...
This is a two-man race, and whichever choice you make will help one of the two. Voting for a third party candidate or not voting at all is just a half-vote for Obama.
Absolutely false, mathematically a fallacy. The electoral college notwithstanding, there is only ONE WAY to vote for Obama, and that is to mark his name on the ballot. There is only ONE WAY to vote for Romney, and that is to mark his name on the ballot. There is only ONE WAY to vote for government tyranny, and that is to mark the name of a statist on the ballot -- Obama and Romney are both statists.
A third party vote favors neither Obama nor Romney, but it does NECESSARILY reduce the popular vote count of whichever guy wins, thus it contributes to a plurality. The last time a liberal was elected president on a plurality, he was impeached. The time before that a liberal was elected president on a plurality, he was forced to move right by the Republican Revolution.
The idea that not voting for Romney is "indirectly voting for Ocrappy" is a total emotional fallacy. And the idea of voting "against" Obama is as imaginary as voting for pretty pink unicorns. You can only vote FOR something. There is no voting "against." Even on proposition, you either vote FOR passing it, or you vote FOR nixing it.
There is no "voting against." I'll be voting FOR a plurality.
And do what? Let Obama have another four years? Do you really think that's what's best for this country?
I think the "affliction" is "Romney is not a conservative because of this or that so we will be better off with a communist".
I know that Mitt is the GOPe candidate. You never said who you were voting for. I gave you some of the reason why I am voting for Mitt. Here we have Mitt who ran Bain Capitol and created many jobs and on the other side we have Obama who’s claim to fame outside of politics(maybe) is that he was a community organizer. No comparison even though you say they are both liberals. I am not trashing anyone, I am just trying to have a discussion why you and others are voting for whoever it is. All I have been getting is Mitt is evil, Mitt is a liberal etc. and I am a Communist and I am stupid from you guys. So all I can come up with is that you don’t care if the country is $20 Trillion or more in debt during the next four years as one issue of many.
Voting for a third party candidate or not voting at all is just a half-vote for Obama.
I dont know how you got .5 out of nothng but that would be half a vote for Willard then also...
How did I wind up voting for both those immoral progressive liberals ???
Are you sure you know what youre doing ???
“You believe anything you read positive on romney. Imagine that - you were a LIBERAL all along!”
You forgot that I am a Communist and that I am stupid and that I should not have any children. That is all you guys have is name calling. When it comes to discussing the issues I have been raising there is nothing but silence from your side of the aisle. Is that not what liberals do when a Conservative is trying to have a discussion? Start into name calling right away?
It would be nice if FIRST Romney would at least ack our conservative presence on the political battle field before we come to the rescue of the POS candidate.
He is ashamed of us and the feeling is mutual.
I am not so eager to spread my ass for that political prick like the ABO'ers seem to be. Whores all.
Yet, by your actions, you will allow the chief advocate of those policies to continue for another 4 years. Think of the possibilities when one doesn’t have to worry about reelection.
Once again, where’s your alternative?
Who needs Democrats when we are intent on destroying ourselves.
/enjoy the rest of this thread. I’m heading over to NASA.gov to follow Curiosity.
Calling a dog’s tail a 5th leg does not make it one. You do whatever you have to in order to sleep at night. I’ll vote conservative and not have that problem. I’ll sleep knowing I didn’t help elect another supporter of the policies that endangered America to begin with.
But if you think electing a liberal, be PROUD of your position. March in a parade and show your pride. Let the world know that only a liberal can fix the country another liberal hosed so thoroughly.
I’ll look to the example of the founders for guidance. They didn’t abandon their beliefs. And their position was far mor dire than ours.
Newsflash. Voting for a liberal while calling yourself a conservative “IS” stupid.
OK, so I go into the voting booth and don't vote for Romeny, so Obama gets .5 votes.
The guy behind me, obviously a Liberal who hasn't bathed for a couple of weeks is next. He doesn't vote for ROmney either, so that ANOTHER .5 for Obama. Now Obama has a total of 1.0 votes.
THEN, he actually votes for Obama!
Now Obama has a total of 2.0 votes?
Now I'm beginning to understand how Obama got 54% of the votes in 08.
He's campaigning for Murdock. How's that?
Abos ‘feel’ that it’s true...so it must be!
Hmmm... who else ‘feels’ rather than deals in facts...
LOL!! What issues - what is there to discuss? Seems more like you use the word 'discuss' when you really mean 'convince'.
Romney accomplishments are anti-American, he's a cult leader etc etc.
What more is there to discuss with the romney crowd with their head in the sand and thinking good would come out of evil. Exposing anything about him - the dumb down crowd have 'no ears' but 'all mouth' with wanting company in their misery!
So it all boils down to - you bow to evil or you don't.
Bring any discussion you feel you need to the GOP where it belongs.
I agree with Mr. Cruz.
LOL!! Clueless! HE is after 'his supporters/audience'!
He helps NO ONE but himself - the sooner you learn that the sooner you can come out of your cocoon!
No, they won't, and it's impossible to reason with them. I won't read past the first few comments on these "I hate Romney" threads anymore. He wasn't my first choice, but now he's my only choice because the alternative is four more years of destruction by the Obozo. It's time for the Romney-hating crybabies to grow up and face facts.
