Congratulations to Ted Cruz! This is a victory both for Ted and for the grassroots Tea Party movement. This primary race has always been about the kind of leadership we need in D.C. Our goal is not just about changing the majority in the Senate. It is about the kind of leadership we want. Ted Cruz represents the kind of strong conservative leadership we want in D.C. Go-along to get-along career politicians who hew the path of least resistance are no longer acceptable at a time when our country is drowning in debt and our children's futures are at stake. The message of this race couldn't be clearer for the political establishment: the Tea Party is alive and well and we will not settle for business as usual. Now, it's on to November!
Wonder if the PDS will get better or worse for a lot of people ;)
They work for us. We are not their slaves!
Got me convinced, now convince the government.
Still work to do Tea Party Patriots! Next is for Steelman in Missouri in their Primary which Sarah has already endorsed. Then to Georgia for the new seat addition (District 9. Martha Zoller, radio talk show host and Tea Partier is going to a runoff against a guy named Collins who is an establishment guy from the Deal administration.
Hopefully, Sarah will see this race and get behind another true conservative and would make Zoller the first Republican woman from Georgia in the House.
Any others out there? Lets organize an action list and get behind these people as well.
Looks like Mack in Florida but I don’t consider him to be of a conservative stripe but he can beat Nelson and if so, with the current list of shoe-ins the Senate goes back to the Republicans.
How sad that Dick Cheney, who has truly been a hero of mine since I was just a girl! He must have suffered from some O2 deprivation... trashed Sarah.
Ass, thank God for Liz!
Sadly, some cannot shake their PDS, as it runs so deep.
I respect a lot of what DC has done for America. But his insistence on sticking to ‘the party’ instead of the country is a huge letdown for me. Once upon a time, when ‘the party’ stood for the things we believe in, that was a good thing. But those times are behind us. Today, ‘the party’ stands for the same things the Dems did 20 years ago. They were the wrong things then and suicidal now.
While Palin is not perfect, she is 90%+ correct on her political views IMO. And I wish she was the GOP nominee. But the old guard ‘party before principle’ BS has prevented that. So far. But id she keeps building up all these wins, by 2016 she may need none of the old guard at all.
This is how the New York Times covered this massive upset as far as Palin goes.
This is their only mention of Palin.
“With indications that an upset was likely, Tea Party celebrities including Sarah Palin, Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Glenn Beck and Rick Santorum came to speak on Mr. Cruzs behalf over the last several days.”
Let them keep right on believing that. Only hurts their future viability as a company and a political force ;)
I actually want them to keep this crap up. It’s working so splendidly....for us.
Figure it out, Sarah is doing everything she can to keep a new party from popping up.
She’s rebuilding the GOP.
PDS is a terminal disease.
I have yet to see one PDSer on FR or anywhere articulate the logic in trashing and undermining a person whose politics are lockstep with conservative values. Especially one with her level of power/influence.
But they sure do seem to love repeating the lib/msm BS. I wonder why.
I agree, Palin is fighting to take the GOP party and to Reaganize it.
starting with no name ID and outspent 3-1!
makes me think there really is a Republican/Rhino party....
as to how sad is Dick...enough to try to get a few liberals at his funeral....Gawd that's really sad!...and I shouldn't say this...but on someone else heart.....Pathetic!
The problem is that even if She or anyone else gets a bunch of actual Conservs in there, the very fabric of the party is riddled with libs, yes men and moderates at the aide/worker level.
Now I admit that today is a bit late to start a party for Nov., but in all honesty, emotional attachment of lifelong GOP voting aside, what happens hypothetically we get enough TEA in the GOP to ‘claim it’?
It’s most likely that the people at the structure level will not be on board with the new program and will do everything possible to get the old guard back into power. That’s just reality.
So a new party post 2012 is IMO a lot better for both us and America. It will be fighting against a destroyed Dem party and a greatly weakened GOP. Thus, no better time to step up and grab the ring. And it will have 1-1/2 and 3-1/2 years respectively to make or break it. But to succeed either way, as a new party or a refabbed GOP, the rot at low/mid levels has to be tosses out with the rot at the top levels. All connections and ‘favors’ to and from the past must be eliminated.
Yup. Why reinvent the wheel? For years Rush has said how stupid it would be to go to a third-party and watch 1992 happen all over again. The Republican Party has to be rebuilt from within. An sitting on one's ass and wishing on a star ain't going to make it happen.
If Indications of victory were so likely,
where were all the DC GOPe’s in the Senate.
You know, the ones who supported Lugar and Crist?
Palin may never be President. But it is clear that her mission to send conservatives to DC is working quite well.
The political class fears her, and with good reason.
Her REAL conservative Army steamrolls the GOPe’s astroturffers.
Someone needs to remind “Dick” Cheney, that he, Rove and Bush
finished with one of the lowest approval ratings in American
History. And as a result, gave us Obama.
Hey Dick. What did all that “experience” you, Rove and Bush
Another party would guarantee the Democrats would never lose another election.
The Whigs once believes something like that.
Perhaps it’s true in this case. Perhaps not. But with the GOP POing everyone but the true believers, they are not crying out for salvation. And as Cruz’s GOP assistance Free blowout shows, they are NOT needed to win elections for conservatives.
Channel 11 in Houston said people at Dewhurst’ headquarters were “blaming Sarah Palin” for the loss. Elitists still don’t get it.
actually that’s good!!!!...The liberal media did not warn their plantation residents....They missed the vote!!!....I hope they continue to ignore us....Shhhuuush..and as in the “old” military....Address 1 target at a time!
I'm not from Texas...but Hallelujah
Sounds familiar to what they said about Palin’s endorsements for Mourdock and Fischer
Go find a thread u can contribute to...LEAVE THIS ONE ALONE!...It's a celebration of sorts....would u have rather had Dewhurst???????????????????
WOW!....Sarah just took Cheney out of the park...He forgot...all he can do is “pitch” now...Sarah is at the plate!!.....
even his daughter understands that!
Channel 11 in Houston..”
I don’t know about you but I got so tired of seeing back-to-back anti-Cruz ads. If NCIS would move to another channel, I would never have to watch any of the alphabet stations any more.
The spin is in. I’m sure Dewhurst knows why he lost the race but it is easier to blame someone else for their misfortune rather than admit those reasons publicly. Obama blames Bush for his troubles, Dewhurst blames Palin. Same song, same party with just a different letter after their last name. Politicians seem to think that being honest is a major character flaw.
Yeah. Some guys are a little slow figuring out what's happening, and what's at stake.
I think tonight's Palin-supported victory by Ted Cruz just gave them a headache. All that internal conflict, ya know.
With all due respect, Master Druid, there art mysteries of the universe that remain beyond we mere mortals' ability to grasp. Why, even the Great Cat knowest not the answer to some imponderables, such as this.
First Order Adherent
Abbey of Trollhenge
Cult of Palin
Hmm, perhaps she should be asked why she, a conservative's conservative, is supporting Romney for the presidency this time around?
I, for one, would be interested in what she would have to say regards that.
As a matter of fact, i wonder who cruz is supporting for the presidency? After all, he too, is a conservative, whose views are well received.
Oh you know it will
And that would doom any third party effort. Take a look at the history of the demise of the Whig party and the rise of the GOP during the 1800s. A third party needs more than just a single candidate (the Libertarians should be able to attest to this)
Any other choice (voting third party or abstaining) is in Obama's favor.
Anyone who doesn't understand this is too stupid to feed themselves unassisted.
See post #28, then you will know who is “confused”...
Read posts #28 and #44...plain and simple.
Cheney is a “but monkey.” “I like Sarah Palin, but...”
Well we can only hope that they stick to their conservative beliefs. As in not rallying for a liberal as president.
Because that would be a stupid thing to do after everything they campaigned for. Wouldn’t it? I mean what point is there in Rah Rahing all these solid conservative themes, values, issues and philosophy that we know work, only to elect a man against them all?
It would seem like they didn’t believe what they were saying. You know...just like the Dem/Lib politicians. And voters. And I can only hope they are smarter than that.
