Posted on 02/10/2014 5:59:20 PM PST by cotton1706
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman is taking on an establishment candidate in his states upcoming Senate primary race. He recently sat down for an exclusive interview with the Western Center for Journalism to explain the motivation behind trying to oust Sen. John Cornyn.
He explained there is ample evidence detailing his opponents insincerity toward his conservative base.
Cornyn has publicly stated that he wants to be less controversial with Obama, Stockman said. The senior senator from Texas has also set his sights on the states other senator, Tea Party-backed Ted Cruz.
According to Stockman, Cornyn patronized Cruz, saying that he hopes he learned lessons from the government shutdown and kind of ridiculed him.
Stockmans most emphatic criticism, however, concerns Cornyns assertion that he wants to work more closely with President Obama and be less controversial in the next three years.
Such a platform of placation, he suggested, is a betrayal of those who voted for his opponent.
I dont view that as serving the people of Texas, Stockman said, describing the duplicitous message as genuinely dishonest.
Cornyn was elected due to his supposed conservative credentials, Stockman said, indicating that his real intention is to go back and do the exact opposite.
In that regard, he added, his opponent is no different than the leftists with whom he ostensibly disagrees.
In television, Stockman explained, I think we call that the bait-and-switch.
He said Cornyns behavior is what were getting from the president and some senators up there.
As of this writing, Cornyns office has not responded to requests for comment.

Sadly though all the little TX Republican primary voters seem to know is Cornball and George P.!
Or are you just one of those depressive type people that can't help but spread it?
I've seen a lot of anger at Cornyn, and willingness to go to the polls and vote for either Stockman or Stovall.
Damn I thought the title read Cornyn smells like bait and fish.
There's a lot of doom and gloom disease going around these days. It's contagious, and those afflicted ought to be quarantined, as far as I'm concerned.
Recently, the San Antonio Express-News Editorial Board did an excellent job of stating why Senator Cornyn, and the rest of the GOP Establishment should NOT be supported at the ballot box, or financially, in TEXAS, or any other GOP-E Candidate anywhere else in America, when they wrote this quote:
- - - We see, in Cornyns eventual public disavowal of using government shutdown as a tool to defund the Affordable Care Act, glimmers that the senator could be among those urging a return to more governance and less stymied government.
Mostly, we see no such glimmers among his opponents.
Cornyn is the clear choice for the GOPs U.S. Senate nomination for Texas. - - - -
The newspaper has thus clearly defined why the GOP Establishment Philosophy is so vehemently opposed by the former members of THE SILENT MAJORITY, and their direct descendants, THE TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY PARTY.
The reason that the old GOP Establishment go along to get along Method, or as the paper put it: a return to more governance and less stymied government is stymied is because a few Republicans such as Senators Cruz and Lee stood up and became our last line of defense against the forces of evil that want full, single payer, universal, Federal control of all of our remaining Liberties.
Since the newspaper has freely chosen the side that wants to crush our Liberties, by choosing to support the usual Cave-In Republican Candidate, we here at Free Republic should freely choose to oppose them.
Let us examine, for a moment, a partial list of what the Austin-San Antonio Liberal Democrat Metroplex finds abhorrent about - - - using government shutdown as a tool to defund the Affordable Care Act - - - .
Failure by Senator Cornyn and the rest of the GOP Establishment to defund Obamacare (ACA) has achieved the following:
* Creation of a Federal Monopoly that is above US Anti-Trust Laws;
* Put Politics above Country by appointing unelected, political people to make Obamacare decisions for us;
* Allowed incompetent Obamacare Leaders to do unpunished;
* Allow incompetent Contractors to go unpunished;
* Intimidated the, gullible, weak, cowardly, milquetoast Republican leadership, especially Speaker Boehner, and including Cornyn, from starting ANY subpoena-based investigations;
* Increased the National Poverty Debt;
* Increased the National Poverty Defeit;
* Decreased the National Workforce % to its lowest level in 35 years;
* Increased the Obama Labor Depression;
* Increased the taxpayer-funded Obama Anti-Labor Subsidies in the form of free Obamacare;
* Increased the cost of Medical Insurance on all Americans;
* Forced Businesses to reduce the number of full time employees;
* Forced Businesses to reduce expanding their business operations;
* Forced Businesses to greatly reduce borrowing money from Private Banks;
* Deprived millions of American of their freedom of choice to keep their previous health insurance policies;
* And provided national and international hackers, criminals, the IRS and the Department of Gestapo Justice, ( DOGJ ), with all of the individual specific personal financial and medical information necessary to blackmail, extort, harm and/or control all Americans from now on.
Returning a GOP Establishment politician to office to always Cave In to the Democrats, is the same as voting in a Democrat politician in the first place.
A Republican in name only is just a Democrat spelled RINO.
A vote in the 2014 Primary and November Election to approve of ANY GOP Establishment US Senator or House of Representatives who opposed the defunding of Obamas Affordable Care Act, is a vote to approve of the idea that we, the voters, are powerless against the combined might of Obama, the Democrats, and the Republicans whom we have voted to enslave us, our children, our Grandchildren, and all of their descendants in the Hell Hole of Communist Obamanation.
IF the 2014 Primary and Congressional election cycle is not the best time to vote out the candidates who are proven GOP Establishment Politicians, THEN when would that time be?

Thank you! If the Express-News is fer it, I am normally agin’ it — and this is one of those sitiations!
Plannin’ on votin’ fer Stockman.

I have. I am committed to Stockman at this point. Come the runoff, I will reconsider.
I have been.
Appears to be very conservative and is outspoken about his Christian faith.
Retired Lt Col
Softer on immigration than I like but otherwise seems good
Not afraid to be confrontational
Has some baggage? I would love some feedback here
Web site needs help
Sounds good but would like to see a specific statement for each major issue on his site
Looks good but slightly soft on illegal immigration
Being female and Hispanic are big plusses as far as electability goes.
They both have been on in the past, especially her Ladyship, but not to the extent recently. I think this is purposeful and has a political agenda behind it.
the list was too painful to read, I’ll have to go back later
I did finally read the list and any ordinary RICO investigation could indict congress and the current resident of the WH.
We will Stockman Mr Cornyn right outta there. I vote in this primary.
I’ve asked Theodore about his Tagline. To me, it sounds like a “backhand” endorsement for Cornyn and George P.
You asked for input; here’s mine. Stockman has been my Congressman both times he has served in Congress and I am NOT voting for him. If he makes the run-off, I will vote for him, but, the dude has a whole helluva lot of baggage. Not sure he could win the run-off against Cornyn.
I haven't made up my mind yet, but I'm certainly not voting for Cornyn...the Terracotta Senator.
