Cornyn votes against raising the debt ceiling
Katy Rancher ^ | 2/12/14 | Katy Rancher

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after voting against raising the debt ceiling.

“After five years of out-of-control White House spending, including a jobless, trillion-dollar stimulus, now is hardly the time to give the President carte blanche to continue his spending spree. I voted against raising the debt ceiling because we need sensible reforms to cut down on spending and restrain Washington going forward.”

What bugs me is his arrogance.

Meaning, the sum bitch actually thinks this Texan is so stupid that he would not understand the meaning of “that other vote” when viewed up along side this one.

Arrogance!

The corruption and deceit in Congress, and our betrayal by the Republicans, hardly warrants my attention these days, but isn’t this one of the weasels who voted FOR the law by voting for cloture - which would assure its passage later, and then - to impress his low-info constituents that he’s really on their side - voted AGAINST the law in the actual done-deal vote.

Have I got that right?

The book, Extortion, will tell you all you ever need to know to realize that DC is a cesspool that needs draining, and I’m frankly way beyond caring the means by which it is drained.

Don't take it personally. He was reaching out to all the Texans who have been putting him into one office or another since 1990.

After, of course. Just like he did for Amnesty and Obamacare funding.

He doesn’t have to fool all of you. He only needs to fool slightly more than half. Senator Cornyn may be a covert, big government spender, but he’s not apparently an idiot. What do you expect him to do? Do you think he’d actually admit he likes spending money we don’t have? No. He probably wants to be reelected.

What are Texans like you going to do to about it? That’s the question that really matters.

Set a clock Cornyn.

If it weren’t for the junior senator of TEXAS, Ted Cruz, the senior senator’s re-election path would be the usual, business-as-usual. You know, campaign in the weeds of the Right, serve and govern 24/7 on the socialist Left.

Conservatives are useful tools to Cornyn victories, but now Cruz has shamed him, mocked him, exposed him albeit not directly, but listen to him on RINOS. Cornyn has to be squealing like a scalded piglit in private.

Set a clock Cornyn. Yes, the old bait then switch has been perfected.

It’s true, Texans don’t understand what cloture means.

“I voted for it before I voted against it.”

Where have I heard that before?

The word has gone out far and wide among TEA Party conservatives in Texas that John Cornyn is a phony, backstabbing politician who has been completely co-opted by the big-government Washington DC culture.

Early voting in the Texas Primary begins next Tuesday (February 18). I pray my fellow Texas Republican voters will be reciting their ABCs in the voting booth.

Anybody But Cornyn.

Have you heard or seen any polling data? Any speculation as to what the campaigns are
seeing in their data. I’m sure some are collecting some polling data. Thanks

Thanks, it seems to me that at least some polling agency would have done a public poll
but none exist that I can find. I’m sure at a minimun that Cornyn has. Maybe that is why
he’s blanketing the media with ads. Who knows but we’ll know in about 17 days as
Mar. 4 is fast approaching.
