Skip to comments.Texas Tea Party IRATE Over Dewhurst Attempt To Fake Grassroots Support
Posted on 07/26/2012 9:13:49 PM PDT by rightjb
Today Dan Patrick, founder of the Tea Party Caucus in the Senate, endorsed Lt. Governor David Dewhurst for the US Senate race. It’s not a surprise that Dan Patrick has been secretly supporting Dewhurst. Reports from Austin and Houston claim that Dan Patrick has been strong arming other Texas congressmen for weeks.
The petulant and unbalanced Dan Patrick interview of Ted Cruz, and the Dewhurst campaign’s dishonest, NBC-like editing in still another attack ad, have left voters furious. Voters across Texas have been calling the Dewhurst campaign to express their displeasure and one Tea Party activist in Houston told PolitiJim that although they voted for him for Lt. Governor, they were contacting the campaign to tell them the gross distortion by his campaign has permanently cut off all support for him in this race and the future. One voter (video embedded) who actually went and listened to the entire show after hearing the ad, was incensed that both Dan Patrick and Dewhurst were falsely slandering Ted Cruz.

I’m so ticked off at Dan Patrick over the way he treated Ted Cruz that when I heard a commercial with him making an endorsement in a different race... I might vote against that guy too based on his poor judgment in supporting Dewhurst..
Dewhurst was Lt Gov of Texas since 2002 and NOW he wants to triple the border patrol? He had 10 years to do it with Bush and then Perry. I guess he thinks we are all stupid.
I guess he thinks we are all stupid.
Why yeah! At least he hopes so, but I think he’s gonna needa name change to “Dunlost”.
Cruz has the establishment pubs drawers in a wad. How DARE anyone run against Dewhurst! I bet he was sure all he had to do was say he wanted to be a Senator and that would be that. The times are changin’.
Dan Patrick can really get on my nerves sometime.....well, ALOT of the time. :)
Dan Patrick is a liar and a wimp.
Patrick failed. I like Cruz more AFTER the interview than before it.
I predict Cruz wins in a landslide, which will be good for Texas, and even better for the Senate. A KBH loss and a Rick Cruz gain is a net gain for America. :)

Good because we, out here in America (PA here} have to depend on you to make the right decision because when Cruz gets to Washington he represents me as well as you.
I find that commercial bizarre. They claim it to be an example of a Cruz “meltdown,” but it doesn’t show that at all.
All I hear is Patrick not allowing Cruz to get a word in edgewise, then telling Cruz not to yell at him ... when Cruz never raised his voice. Cruz’s voice did sound frustrated, but he never yelled.
