Rick Perry went after Tea Party support when he was running for President and forgetting which three departments of the government he would shut down. But now that he does not need the Tea Party anymore, he is showing his true colors, supporting one of the biggest RINO’s in the nation.
While the Tea Party and major Tea Party groups have rallied around Ted Cruz, Perry is going all in for weird, spooky and rich Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst. Did I mention Dewhurst is the biggest RINO that side of the Mississippi?
From the Houston Chronicle:
Gov. Rick Perry is once again slamming “out-of-state interest groups” backing former solicitor general Ted Cruz in his runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst –this time tweaking Sarah Palin, U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and Rick Santorum by suggesting their states could learn a lot from Texas, but Texas doesn’t need their advice on choosing its next U.S. senator.
Perry, standing staunchly behind Dewhurst, brushed off the question about whether his own tea party credibility may be damaged by his opposition to Cruz, who has been endorsed by national conservative and tea party groups and figures (including Palin, DeMint and Santorum) in the runoff for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.
“There’s a whole lot of people who don’t intimately and expertly know how Texas operates that have come in and endorsed in this race, and with all due respect – I respect each one of those individuals, but they don’t know anything about how Texas works,” said Perry after a hurricane preparedness tour at the Austin airport. “And if they did, they would be endorsing David Dewhurst.”
Without naming Palin, DeMint or Santorum, Perry called them to mind by naming their states: “I appreciate everybody paying attention to Texas – as well they should, they could learn some things on how to run South Carolina and Pennsylvania and Alaska.
“Come to Texas and learn how to do it right, but don’t come down here and tell us who needs to be our next United States senator, thank you very much. We’ll decide that without your outside, Washington, D.C.-oriented help,” Perry said.
Cruz spokesman James Bernsen said his candidate has overwhelming support among Texas grassroots conservatives, “most of whom Dewhurst has not even bothered to meet with.” And, he said, Cruz has “exponentially more Texas donors than David Dewhurst, including more donors from the Houston area than Dewhurst has in the entire state of Texas.”
Rick Perry should spend his time working on his failing memory and not trying to saddle us with another RINO Senator. The future of the Republican Party is conservatives like Ted Cruz.
David Dewhurst’s record in the Texas state legislature was that of a liberal. He worked with Democrats time after time to stop conservatives. Ted Cruz has repeatedly demonstrated his conservative beliefs.
This is the year of the Tea Party Senators. Ted Cruz is the Tea Party candidate. David Dewhurst is just another liberal Republican who has more in common with Harry Reid than real Americans.
When Rick Perry can remember which three departments he was going to shut down, then perhaps we might listen to him. In the meantime, he is simply shilling for another RINO.
THEY ARE NOT RINOS, THEY ARE COMMUNIST, TRADERS TO THE CONSTITUTION.
I did think Perry was a better man. But I guess not! I trust Sarah, DeMint and even Rick S . He has sold his soul to the Establishment.!
Nah. Don't bother listening to Perry. He's as big a RINO as Romney. In fact, he might end up in a Romney administration, if Romney manages to win in November.
i hope so I love Perry and I hope Romney WINS---which he will
another fool, wake up ! Perry:Trans Texas Corridor, Bilderberg group, Killed the Texas tsa anti Groping law , killed the bill to require birth certification for Pres & VP in Texas. Geesh ! and you LOVE this guy ???
Never mind Perry's current support for Dewhurst.
Perry also introduced a much White-Washed Islamic history curriculum into the public education system of Texas.
All the atrocities during their religious conquest, of the wanton killing, of the second class, Dhimmitute, of the conquered removed.
From what I remember, it was on the recommendation of one Billy Jeff Clinton, that White Trash from Hope.
I am sure that Hillary's confidant Abedeen was somewhere directing this whole Islamization.
I for one was not unhappy to see Perry go
you do not know what you are talking about. You were too busy listening to the real traitor rhinos. Perry has won awards for defending Jeruslem etc.
Diane thanks....Gov. Perry has done Tx. a great service. I am a North Carolenian..transported to Tx. in 1978,and am glad to call Perry "My Governor". A true Christian and Constitutionalist. As President he would have brought us out of the MESS obumma has and is creating. I don't know what a RINO is.....but don't think he is one....GOD BLESS AMERICA AGAIN.
McCain in what sense? foreign policy?
Donald, my brother has lived in Texas for many years now (I've lost count), and he is a strong conservative, a Christian, and a member of TPN. The things he has told me about Rick Perry have left me unwilling to vote for Perry for third assistant dog-catcher in a two-dog town.
I love what Perry said, and he is right they need to come and learn some things from texas---cause they haven't done so well
Alaska is doing better then any of the lower 48 states including Texas. Perry is a traitor by backing a rino!!!!!!
