Nah. Can't be. The Perrybots on FR told us Perry was such an awesome tea-party candidate, conservative leader, and "anti-establishment" guy.

WE are the ones who must tidal wave the Republican Party.

The Establishment has not, is not and will not do anything that doesn’t pull the Party to the LEFT, thus, we have a socialist at the top of a Republican ticket.

I hope the convention explodes with rebellion and resistance. We get worked over election after election with the same old canard, that if we don’t stick to their Dole, McCain, Romney script disaster will strike.

When will we resist? Next time will be progressively worse just as our nominee history has already proven.

Reminds me of FDR strategy to stay out of the war. By the time we decided to get in lest we fall, it then cost millions of lives. More than if we had drawn a line in the sand in the early moment.

We’re doing the same thing now, cooperating with the GOPE under duress. Still we are complying, still cooperating, taking our very own selves down.

Been telling you folks that you don't really want to get caught running an honest to goodness RINO for President ~ and there he is.

Guy still hasn't got his foot out of the Democrat traditions ~ and that's part of the problem with having run for and won public office as a Democrat.

He needs more time in the test tubes before another decanting ~ and Dewherst? He's not doing as well as the Mittbots told us he would.

By the time we were “allowed” to vote in Texas, 7 of the 9 Candidates had dropped out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STUPID Primary Election system!

But I digress.

The facts today are different from the facts in January. ONLY an OPEN Convention can realistically evaluate all the facts in a cohesive manner.

Allow me to state my case in this manner:

The IDEA is to beat Obama convincingly. Forget about your favorite politician, and focus on the IDEA of beating Obama.

The REPUBLICAN Primary Candidates have proven that NONE of THEM can fight their way out of a wet paper bag!

The REPUBLICAN Primary was merely a test run to the GENERAL NATIONAL ELECTION.

REALITY CHECK: NONE OF THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY CANDIDATES CAN BEAT OBAMA IN NOVEMBER.

Given that reality, let us learn from the lessons of History, insist that the Convention delegates vote to ABSTAIN (=None of the above), OPEN the Tampa Convention to discussion and chose the Candidate that CAN beat Obama.

Why is this so hard?

We owe NO loyalty to ANY of our Primary Candidates.

We owe NO loyalty to the Primary Election results.

We owe no loyalty to the RINO Wing of the Republican Party.

We owe loyalty ONLY to what is best for the United States of America, and that , IMHO, is to CONVINCINGLY DEFEAT OBAMA in November.

In 2008 we accepted the RINO Primary BS on McCain, shame on them.

In 2012 if we accept the RINO Primary BS on Romney, shame on us.

BTW, for all of you that consider Romney to be THE guy, just answer this question:

” What will Romney have to do to keep from being DUMPED at the Tampa Convention?”

I don’t believe this. There may have been a few desultory boos from the Cruz crowd, but I seriously doubt that Rick Perry was booed to any extent.

Perry was and is very popular in Texas and nobody has been able to explain to me why the lawyer Cruz is any great messiah and better than Dewhurst.

I think Cruz is a fad candidate like Herman Cain and he has zero chance of winning.

A January poll found that a majority of Texans did not want Perry to seek a fourth term in 2014.

I wasn't the only one who didn't want him to seek a third term. The only reason he's still here is that conservatives came out to vote against Kay Bailey Hutchinson rather than for Perry.

Oddly enough conservatives did so because KB ain't a conservative.

Dewhurst is a slick cross the aisle to advance the liberal agenda politician. He just looks like a slimy politician that has been around too long. I’m for Cruz.

The reaction was loud enough that it partially drowned out Perry’s cries of “Texas works! Texas works!” as he continued his speech.
snip

http://blog.chron.com/texaspolitics/2012/06/perry-mention-of-dewhurst-draws-boos/

“We all know in our hearts that Texas is the laboratory of conservative reform. We need more strong conservatives in Texas and we need more conservative Texans in Washington DC, including my friend, David Dewhurst,” Perry said.

The room was immediately washed with strong “boos” – and/or “Cruz” – in response, as the crowd heavy with tea party and conservative convention-goers expressed its preference.

Perry recovered and soon had the crowd again applauding references to God and Texas actions like taking away funding for Planned Parenthood. Convention-goers also were big fans of Obama slams.

Later, after he finished signing copies his budget compact along with convention-goers who lined up for the privilege, Perry said when asked about the eruption, “Boo? I thought they were saying ‘Dew.’”

What Cruz has been is determinedly ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT. Dewhurst is Establishment. If Cruz is nominated, Texas has a Senate race well worth working in. If Dewhurst, Texans will have to wait and try to purge Cornyn and then Dewhurst, because just as with POTUS there will be no 2012 election for Senate from Texas. We have enough spineless GOP-E greedheads and airheads in the Senate already: NO MORE!

When they speak and vote on the Law of the Sea Treaty, take names of speakers and their positions and keep the roll call vote.

Well, okay. That’s what you say he’s not.

But what is he?

I can’t find any Cruz supporters who will give me a good reason to vote for him and I will be voting in the runoff.

I love this thread...short as it may be.

Firstly, BillyBob, who is sane enough to see La Raza Rick Perry for what he is, makes a comment about Perry and is then accused of being a Mittens supporter because of it.

Then, the queen Perry supporter kook chimes in to do what? Voice her support for Mittens.

It is a fact that many if not most of the PerryBots who were banned from FR have found a new home in the anti-FR website where they can all share in their support for Mittens.

Is it any wonder why they supported a RINO like Perry?

Dewhurst won the Jimmy Carter Co Generator Lotto.

Wants everyone to think he earned it with his blood sweat and tears.

I have a quarter that thinks he is in the Ethanol market too.

Just guessing on that one.
