Matt Patrick’s Intense Interview With TX Sen. John Cornyn!
ktrh.com ^ | 10/9/13 | Matt Patrick

Posted on 10/09/2013 8:42:32 AM PDT by cotton1706

Starts at 7:09, ends 27:58

Cornyn claims that FreedomWorks does a disservice by encouraging "republican violence" i.e. by supporting and funding conservative challengers to moderate republicans.

Yet Cornyn endorsed Arlen Specter and Charlie Crist and funded Lisa Murkowski over the republican nominee.

He says "we need to win elections" Yet he supported or endorsed every moderate over every conservative when he was head of the NRSC.

Sounds like a man who realizes the conservatives are swinging about to aim his direction. He would be correct about that.

Someone please remind me again how Murkowski voted on cloture on BambiCare?

Cornyn is just protecting the RINO Herd by false advertising and Leaking stories about attacking Cruz in a Party Meeting is not “Attacking Convervatives”?

I am going to make a donation to Freedom Works and send a Copy to the NRSC.

Cornyn probably started out as a good guy but somewhere along the way was seduced by the Inside the Beltway establishment.

With a reelection coming up he will follow the playbook and send out an undiluted conservative message. However, if reelected, all bets are off.

Murkowski voted FOR cloture but voted against everything subsequently (Reid’s amendment and the bill).

“Cornyn probably started out as a good guy but somewhere along the way was seduced by the Inside the Beltway establishment.”

That happened when he was pulled into the leadership, of either the NRSC or of the Senate.

McConnell, like McCain, is a corrupting parasite!

"we need to win elections"

Not with Republicans that support liberal bigger government agendas.

Voting for Cloiture was a vote for ObamaCare...Murkowski supports ObamaCare....as her vote allowed the Dems to remove ObamaCare defunding

Praying Louie Gohmert runs for the Senate against Cornhole.

When it was he and Kaye Bailey, Cornyn looked so much more conservative, by comparison. This hid the true John Cornyn who had really been a “moderate” Republican and more importantly he was “in” the Texas GOPe.

Caught him on Cspan a few days after Cruz’s 21 hour speech, asking Cruz some floor question to say how strong a conservative Senator he really was and how he supported Cruz. Hogwash.

Wendy Davis made a tactical error by running for Governor. She had a better chance of defeating Cornyn, as Tea Partiers will be sitting on their hands (unless he has a primary opponent).

He says "we need to win elections"

admitting that it's all about the power of the party in DC, those in power control the PEOPLE'S money. FIRE THIS JACKASS.

Praying Louie Gohmert runs for the Senate against Cornhole.

************

Doesn’t seem that Gohmert is interested but things can change his views but it
has to happen shortly as the deadline for the primary filing is Dec. 9, 2013.

But Gohmert insisted he was not planning to run for Senate — nor, he added for
good measure, for president, though he said supporters had urged him to consider both.

“Before I dive in” to a race, Gohmert said, “I need to feel it in my heart. I don’t
feel it in my heart right now.”

He added, “It’s not on my radar.”

Many years ago my husband and I stopped sending money to political organizations. You never know where the money will end up, even if a conservative heads it up for window dressing. Money needs to go to individual candidates that you know believes as you do.

When we would get calls from the various committees we would just say, heck no, not for that bunch of liberals!

That sends a very clear message.

Don’t forget that Larry Elder went hat in hand to Cornyn, volunteering to run for Senate in 2010. Cornyn kicked him to the curb in order to back Fiorina.

With the election OVER a year away, the sitting Senator has already started running "I am a conservative" (if only during election cycles) radio and TV ads! Cornyn KNOWS that he is toast in Texas!

When he went against Cruz, Texas saw that he was nothing more than another Kay Bailout Hutchinson! She didn't run for re-election because she KNEW she was going to LOSE; hell she couldn't even unseat Perry as Governor!

If we can get a decent CONSERVATIVE challenger like Louie Gohmert or Ted Poe, then Cornyn is DONE! And it couldn't happen to a better RINO currently representing Texas!

The radio ads have already started, trying to paint him as a conservative. We need a primary opponent to get behind. There is energy in Texas right now to get rid of RINOs.

I agree with your assessment about Wendy Davis.

Her running for Governor is actually GOOD for Republicans! She has no chance to win the Governorship in Texas, BUT, she is going to pull money away from sources that would otherwise go to other states and other candidates. I love it!

What good is it to win elections if it still leads to liberal political ends being advanced by the Congress? Cornyn is a disgrace.

I heard this interview on Matt’s show. Cornyn was flustered by Matt’s questions and that’s why he abruptly hung up on Matt at the end. I think Matt is right about one thing - Cornyn is not in touch with the people of Texas and what we are looking for in a Senator. He clearly does not like Cruz, but he would never say that. He has been running lots of ads on the conservative talk radio stations stating how conservative he is and what a great Senator he has been. He is scared and he should be. I will support whoever runs against him.
