Congrats To Texas Dems For Turning Rosemary Lehmberg’s Drunk-Driving Conviction Into National News
dailycaller.com ^ | 8/19/14 | Jim Treacher

Posted on 08/20/2014 7:46:09 AM PDT by cotton1706

Indicting Rick Perry seemed like a good idea at the time. After all, he’s a Republican who might run for president in 2016!

But now he’s fighting back… with Rosemary Lehmberg’s help.

Have fun, lefties. Keep defending this hostile, hypocritical, corrupt Democratic Party hack, and we’ll keep reminding everybody what this is all about.

I watch Cops on tv and she acted exactly like every other drunk they arrest - denies, accuses,demands special attention, spits, cries, begs.... it would have been amusing if it wasn’t so pathetic

I don’t know how Perry will turn this arrest into a golden opportunity to make political points for 2016.

But I hope he succeeds.

Standing up against a bunch of people who have very obviously politicized law enforcement would speak well of Rick Perry. Right now NOBODY is willing to stand up against the politicization of law enforcement and the courts - which is largely why we’re in the mess we’re in.

As long as the people who have the ability to call grand juries are sheer political hacks who answer to their political and sugar-daddy puppet-masters, the people be darned and there’s nothing we can do about ANY of the lawlessness we see from the politicians’ friends.

There are many that think he will. I'm not one of those.

Spitting is considered assault and a felony, i believe. Why wasnt she charged with that if she was spitting? Answer: she did get special treatment.

For progressive Democrats, having a belligerent drunk in charge of “ethics” makes perfect sense.

And this will show what a bunch of fools the Travis County Democrats are. Didn't we learn from the Rathergate debacle almost exactly ten years ago?

This is delicious. I can see the court hearings and the arguments and the judge trying to make this fit into a crime. This like they are indicting him for j-walking. That is all this amounts to. The judge must have a real headache on this one.

You are right. she also threatened officers but they brushed it off. she wanted the sheriff to get her out and dismiss it all - again, expecting to be treated differently than those she prosecutes

I hope everyone post her pictures and videos every time it comes up, and says fine, let’s compare mug shots - with Perry looking presidential :)

Cruz is my 1st choice, but Perry is way better than Jeb and Christie...

The next President will have to spend much his first term doing exactly this.
Throwing out infiltrators and organizers.
He might as well get some practice cleaning up Austin.

Rick is already making political hay on this one. People were lined up in front of the police station yesterday cheering him on. Then he gave a fully publicized speech, took a rock star mug shot and will now be getting free national air time on every major talk show for the forseable future.

Rock on Rick!

Perry’s lawyers need to ask for the venue to be 15 miles NW in Williamson County. Cedar Park or Georgetown.

They should. Lets see if they do and if they don’t than it is clear that they are political.

Maybe like NOW and Bill Clinton.

Rick Perry needs to expose the crap that the Dems all across the country try to pull:

One rule for us-—

Another set of rules for Dems & blacks.

This woman is beyond stupid—she could have gone quietly.

Now- I want her out of that position, never to be able to work on the public payroll again & I want her law license revoked for life.

She is another like Tim Geithner who cannot fill our his personal 1040 form, but gets appointed Sec of the US Treasury!!!

What is next?

The O J Simpson chain of battered women’s shelters?????

Its a bit of a hail marry that seems almost stereo typically Texan in its boldness to challenge and and conservative in its demand that officer holders uphold the values they ask of the rest of us.

I don’t know if Perry can pull it off either, but its an opportunity and I agree with Perry not passing it up, hes not likely to get a better one down the line.

“Travis County is toxic.”

That is actually the best part of this whole campaign, the way it makes fun of the Austin liberal Voters who regularly elect trash like this while going along with indictments. lol

Austin is the trash of Texas where people go to leach off what little political power they can.
