af, you’re wrong about Lamar Smith - and some of that money he’s got is mine (community property).
While I’ve fussed at him for backing Romney (Jim Demint and Marco Rubio back Romney now and Governor Perry evidently wasn’t ready to run the race) and his internet bills, he is a strong, working conservative.
He knows why he’s a conservative and can articulate the issues well. He’s held the media’s feet to the fire by opposing their bias.
His staff have repeatedly gone out of their way to address my concerns. I believe they heard me on HR 1981.
He met with a group of us in New Braunfels last week. Not “the elite,” just regular folks who bought our own lunch in a buffet restaurant. Just wait ‘till he brings Holder back to the House Justice Committee as planned in a week or so.

He supported Romney in 2008, and he supported him once again in May of 2011, before we knew what the field would be. Smith could have waited a few months, seen how things would shape up, and make his decision, but there was no hesitation on his part to support Romney, and he has said in interviews that he is, and I quote, "comfortable" with supporting Romney.
Furthermore, his "internet bills" as you call them, are about as evil and non-Conservative as you can get, and belong in China, not in the United States of America. The man was paid off by Hollywood - it's right there in his donation listings.
When people spoke out against Lamar Smith on SOPA, his response was that he would just have to wait and push it through at a later date. That is NOT what a Conservative would do.
We've went around on this a few times, and nothing you can say can erase Lamar Smith's early support of Romney and nothing you can say can erase Lamar Smith's attitude that he and Hollywood know what's best for the internet.
