Cruz vs. Dewhurst
Texas election | 7/2912

Posted on 07/29/2012 7:57:33 AM PDT by DallasBiff

Initially I was a Cruz supporter, but as the campaign rolled on and I found out that Cruz is a trial lawyer, I was skeptical, but I still supported Cruz, because he said the right things.

Still, though, saying the right things cannot hide your initial background, a trial lawyer=community activist.

As in all elections, the choice is the lesser of two evils, and a businessman is a lesser evil than a trial lawyer.

An esoteric note, Cruz has a very whiny voice.

I know, that will be considered unfair.

Dewhurst has a history. I do NOT want Dewhurst. I don't want him in DC, and I don't want him in Austin. I'll be voting for Cruz.

I think I’ll judge the man by his enemies, and nearly every pansified, limp-wristed, “go along to get along” RINO and establshment RePukelican has come out of the woodwork to support Dewhurst.

For Cruz, being a trial lawyer = Texas’ Solicitor General, not a community activist.

DewCrist is a liberal big government RINO.

Thank-you Mrs Dewhurst. Was your son a good boy growing up? Did you teach him to take other people money away for government like wage taxes? On immigration did you teach him to give our country to other illegal people? Palin pushed Cruz over the top. Your man loses by 6% because liberal won’t vote.

The post is obviously just more deceptive twaddle contrived by the Dewhurst campaign. It is utter rubbish and only slightly more subtle than Dewhurst’s incessant TV and radio ads.
Cruz had real conservative credentials, Dewhurst doesn’t.

Dewhurst will lose.

Well the biggest GOP "pansified" conservative radio talk show host, Mark Davis, thinks Rachael Maddow is "intelligent" and he is supporting, Cruz.

News / Activism? An opinion....

In any case this is two days away from being decided. The turnout for in person / mail ballot voting was about 100,000 less in the largest 15 counties than during the primary. GOTV will determine the winner, good or bad.

I don’t know anything about this race, but to dismiss trial lawyers out of hand is ridiculous. Many lawyers are sleazy, and many lawyers are out there doing God’s work every day.

Look at some of the cases Ted Cruz has argued before the supreme court, I think Cruz would be a good “trial lawyer” to have on our side. And the people endorsing each of these guys makes it pretty clear who the good guy is in this election.

Two votes from this house already went for Cruz and he is definitely the better to vote for.

Typical progressive tactic. dewrag is a progressive... Cruz seems not to be. Vote for the fresh face... you at least have a chance for a Conservative to blossom... with dewrag... you get a progressive for certain.

A question, which is better, a smarmy lawyer, or a smarmy businessman.

My answer the smarmy businessman, at least he/she creates wealth, while the lawyer sucks the life out of wealth.

After Dewhurst loses, with his nasty campaign, and the threats he's made to other Republicans, will be very much weakened, and vulnerable in the next Lt. Gov. election.

I intend to work HARD to get him out of Austin.

Dewhurst is a stutterer.

Your point is...?

I voted for Cruz because I'll choose a conservative over a moderate "establishment" every time!

Dewhurst has certainly opened up a lot of eyes to what he really is. Next statewide elections, we need to remove him from Austin.

I was in the Houston area for business this past Wed-Fri. Had to do 6 hours of driving from Houston to South Texas Project and back.

In the car, I heard LOTS of Cruz-Dewhurst ads (while driving on a state road with a posted speed limit of 75 mph!). Each one was trying to explain how conservative they were. Heaven.

I got back to Connecticut and the first ad I saw was a guy running for the House explaining how he was proud to be a liberal (even said “That’s right, I’m a liberal!”).

Who ever loses, could you send them up to Connecticut?

Rachel Maddow is "intelligent" and has the educational records to show for it.

That doesn't mean I like, watch or agree with her! It's just a fact...she is intelligent!

And I voted for Cruz.

IMO, Dewhurst would be just another what we gripe about that we need to get rid of in Congress. Why put another in office?

Dewhurst would be another John McCain...and one of him is toooo much! Dewhurst would be constantly "reaching across the aisle!"

I’ve seen enough of Dewhurst over the past dozen years that he won’t be getting any votes here. How he sleeps at night over his lying ads is enough to send even the most unaware voter running to Cruz. All the votes in this house have gone to Cruz.

Another two votes for Cruz here in this house. Dewhurst holds the most powerful political position in Texas but has never advanced any cause other than his own career. He’s channeling Bob Bullock.

The lawyer, like my son who is an attorney as well, is a believer in the Constitution, is a core conservative, a supporter of the TEA PARTY and will WIN on Tuesday because of HIS CONVICTIONS, not what he does for a living.

You are obviously a noob to FR and a supporter of Dewie’s. You gave it away when you said you aren’t affiliated with the campaign by contributing or volunteering. If you were a real undecided voter, working to help him win wouldn’t even be on your radar screen.

But mostly you are a huge uninformed BORE. Now get atta here and let the rest of us figure out what we can do to help Cruz bring it home on Tuesday.
