Is Texas Sen. John Cornyn
ripe for a primary challenge?

Houston Chronicle, by David Jennings

Original Article

Posted By:draggingtree, 1/2/2013 2:16:57 PM

After his vote to increase the deficit in the so-called “fiscal cliff” negotiations, I think so. Definitely so. Think about it. He voted to increase federal income taxes on “rich folks”, giving more revenue to a bloated government without demanding cuts in spending. He voted to increase capital gains taxes without demanding cuts in spending. He voted to increase dividend taxes without demanding cuts in spending. He voted to extend unemployment payments to the tune of $30 billion in more debt without demanding cuts
Headline split by staff.

If more Rebublicans received primary challenges and a few lost, then the other Rebublicans might suddenly grow spines. It is the Tea Parties´ elected Reps in the house that threaten Boehner, not Democrats. We have to heal ourselves from within and it starts by holding our ´conservative´ representatives accountable.

We need another Senator to represent us like Ted Cruz. If someone like Ted challenges Cornyn he´ll get my vote. Senator Cornyn just wants to get along with everyone. He never made any real effort to cut spending (meaning spending less than the previous year not just a slight reduction in the rate of increase which is the DC definition of massive cuts).

It was a "Free Vote" for him to vote the other way as it would have passed anyway. This was a McConnell tactic to use to force the House by making it seem overwhelmingly bi-partisan in the Senate.

I wonder if soon-to-be-former Sen-tor Jim DeMint might know of a few challengers for ´Big John´ Cornyn....

In the first place the Houston Comical is a leftist Hearst rag so the editorial idea here I think is to replace Cornyn with someone left of Cornyn. Cornyn is more conservative than portrayed here, but I sometimes think he is morphing into Kay Bailey Hutchison. Senators like to think they are in a more deliberative branch but that hasn´t been true since the early part of the 20th century. They are super congressmen that you can´t get rid of as often.

John Cornyn has one of the most conservative records in congress. What´s the problem? I admire and respect the guy, as do apparently enough fellow Texans to elect him and reelect him. Ted Cruz may be a really good senator, but it seems to me a few of you ought to wait and see how he does before adjusting his halo.

If you are a Republican from Texas, you are very very conservative compared to most other Senators. However, Cornyn´s vote to swallow this cr*p sandwich from Obama will hard to get over. Yeah, let´s primary him.

No conservative would have voted for that piece of garbage bill. Here´s what Ted Poe said about it:

I voted "no" because this so-called “deal” is toxic for American families and small businesses. Make no mistake about it: this bill is not intended to pay down the deficit. It is just another massive Washington spending bill in disguise. And the American people will once again be left to pick up the tab.

Forget it. Senator John Cornyn isn´t going anywhere. He serves Texas well and Texans appreciate it. As for this bill, we have to choose our battles. I´m not going to vote for Don Quixote in this kind of situation. When we have the White House or the Senate we can be pickier.

Cornyn used to be a dependable chap-- now he is taking of Washington Kay´s role.

I will vote for him over a Demonrat, but he pretty well lost my strong support because he won´t stand up for smaller government reach into our lives and pockets.

I strongly support Ted Cruz, and John Cornyn pretty well thought Dewhurt was going to get the nod because the "old bulls" wanted the money candidate who blew off the social conservatives.

That´s not going to happen in Texas!

We will see how the year plays out. If any GOP vote for anything the democrats vote for, that person deserves a primary challenge.

Cairo, Egypt-In the weirdest statement yet announced by a person belonging to any country in the world, a Muslim Brotherhood leader called Mohammed El-Beltagy, asked the United States, the European Union and NATO to send their armies to Egypt to fight against the Egyptian army and destroy it, under the pretext that the army wants to destroy the Muslim Brotherhood and scatter them.

London, England - A new wealth tax is being proposed by the leftist wing (The Liberal Democrats) of our coalition government that will come with unprecedented powers to enter our homes and root through our personal possessions to value rings, necklaces, paintings and furniture, anything that might raise more taxes. If we refuse to be inspected or get our own valuations wrong, we would be facing fines, maybe even a jail sentence. This brainchild was conceived by the Lib Dems for their next election manifesto and is part of a series of measures planned to tax the better off.

Obama: Marxist Revolutionary

As most real conservatives know, Obama, by his own admissions, appointments, associates, and actions, is a hard-core, 21st century, Marxist revolutionary. This means that while he has no real plan for what his utopian, pie-in-the-sky collectivist state would look like, or how it would survive as an economic entity, he is dedicated to destroying our existing free, constitutional, capitalist republic to start the process. It also means that like all Marxists, archaic and modern, his primary enemy is what Marx called the bourgeoisie – the Middle Class. As those who went to school while actual history

The crowd was roaring. The lone man, ramrod straight, in his impeccable brown uniform would step forward toward the lectern, then pause and let his eyes wander over the thousands of up turned faces—all staring at him, waiting for him to speak. And they waited—and they waited. (Snip) A full sixty seconds would expire before that man would take the one remaining step to the lectern, and begin speaking.

MEXICO CITY — Mexico said Wednesday that it had records of more than 27,000 cases of “disappeared people” that it would make public soon in an effort to clarify the circumstances under which they vanished. Lia Limon, the country’s deputy interior secretary for human rights, acknowledged the cases hours after Human Rights Watch issued a scathing report that called Mexico the Western Hemisphere’s hot spot for “enforced disappearances,”

A week from now, a dramatic new federal policy is set to go into effect that threatens U.S. national security, thousands of jobs and more. In a bit of irony, President Obama stood Tuesday with first responders who could lose their jobs if the policy goes into effect. Most Americans are just hearing about this Washington creation for the first time: the sequester. What they might not realize from Mr. Obama´s statements is that it is a product of the president´s own failed leadership.

Leaving aside for the moment the likelihood that parties and party politics in America will become moot within the next few years (owing to the emergence of a single party or the country’s dissolution into civil war), conservatives and libertarians are finding themselves at an unpleasant crossroads. While some observers gave up on the leadership of the Republican Party long ago, it is now becoming apparent to rank-and-file Republicans that the GOP leadership and its prominent operatives are wholly complicit in the fundamental transformation of America.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
