Rick Perry Or Ted Cruz For 2016?
Townhall, by Matt Mackowiak

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/1/2014 7:23:05 AM

Two Texans may be vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry. Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate. He fires up crowds unlike any other politician today, and the power of motivating voters and volunteers should not be underestimated. But will he run in 2016? The signs point to yes. One of his staffers left his office to start a committee to draft him into running. He has visited the early states and spent many weekends during his first 18 months in office raising

It would have to be Rick Perry since Ted Cruz is not a natural born citizen. Right now, for me, it´s Rick Perry or Scott Walker.

The GOP will work to destroy Cruz. They would rather lose to a democrat than for a true conservative (non-GOP) to win.

FTA, "Last time he hastily jumped in, unprepared, immediately after serious back surgery. Now, he is building up, and the most powerful advantage he will have is low expectations. The media loves a comeback."

The media hates a conservative and will continually mock Perry for his stumbles last time around. With both Perry and Palin, the media has crafted an image they can sell to the uninformed and there is little the candidate can do against the never ending stream bad press pushing that false image.

My choice would be Cruz.

The uninformed would not vote for a republican, so Palin and Perry will not lose any votes for the republicans if they are our nominees.

Senator Cruz´s best position in our Nation is the US Supreme Court´s Chief Justice. God created him for that position!

I supported Perry last time around, but I think this time I would support Cruz. I believe we need NEW BLOOD. Someone who can get out and fire up a crowd so much that they will actually go and vote! I realize that Perry has more experience than Cruz, but Cruz has the balls to go toe to toe with the Democrats. He will make the hard decisions. He will repeal a lot of what Obama has put in place. I like him a lot. If not him, Walker. Or Both of them! We need energy and they could be dynamite!

It may irrational, unfair, crazy or whatever, but I don´t think the national electorate would go with a white guy from Texas. And I have a queasy feeling that Cruz would scare off as many people as he´d fire up.

We need someone with a conservative backbone and the ability to persuade. I´ll support whoever is nominated, but I´d love to see Scott Walker or maybe Mike Pence.

There is no way that TWO Texans would make a ballot together as running mates.

Cruz stands on principle and lives and breathes the Constitution. Perry has been rather malleable of late as he seeks to cozy up to the moderates.

The press and the RINOs see Cruz as a thorn in their side because he calls them back to repent of their liberal progressive ways.

He is a fiery and passionate person but is not swayed from the less government, less taxes position. We cannot suffer another loss to the libs when the "conservatives" run another "establishment" lib like McPain and Mittens.

I would rather die on my feet than on my knees giving away our heritage like a mess of pottage, so I Cruz with Ted.

Two good men. I like both of them, but think neither will make it, due to the arguments given above.

I´ll go "way out there" and raise Rudy Giuliani for reconsideration. Yes, he blew it in 2008 by listening to advisers: putting all his marbles into the Florida primary and trusting Charlie Crist. And no, his conservative credentials are not without blemish.

But Rudy is a man with solid accomplishments (turning around blue NYC was a much greater feat than saving the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics), who has broad appeal, is an undeniable patriot, and who continues to impress. He is actually a unifying figure - unlike most of the others. He might be worth another look.

Country above party.

Just sayin´

No one mentions Dr. Carson. He could be a great president, but perhaps after the present experience, would have a hard time winning. The black vote and Media would be 90% against him. Also nobody mentions Rand Paul, perhaps for good reason. Any of the people discussed would probably be a Godsend, particularly in comparison to the present. And to Mrs. Clinton.

I´d like for it to be Ted Cruz, because he´s less likely to make a gaffe publicly that places him in a position of scorn. Ted is considerably more eloquent than Rick Perry, can think on his feet, won´t back down against personal attacks and articulate the conservative message so that even the LoFos can understand it. Which is why the Republican power structure will unite with the Democrats to make certain that all the dirty tricks come into play during the primaries.

Cruz is a great conservative American but at this early stage in his career he simply does not have the depth of experience to be president. We don´t need another prez without executive experience. Rick Perry or Scott Walker would be better candidates and a better president.

If Mitt Romney had said in 2012 that a second Obama term would bring not just continued economic uncertainty, but also the re-emergence of international terrorist forces, Russia´s invasion of the Ukraine, an illegal immigration crisis, a knife-wielding madman in the White House, a beheading in Oklahoma, and the Ebola virus in Texas, even the president´s most paranoid critics would have told him to calm down. But here we are, with a president overcome by crises—a situation summed up succinctly this morning by Matthew Continetti in the Free Beacon.

On the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, the Washington Post noted an amusing coincidence: “Almost a quarter century ago, Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson served as Republican counsel on the Senate Watergate committee. Now he chairs the Senate panel investigating the current White House fund-raising scandal.” The timing was interesting because, as the Post explained, the “controversy came to light last year because of the reforms of Watergate, including requirements that campaigns and political parties regularly submit lists of their contributors to the Federal Election Commission.” The Post went on to list seven major reforms that stemmed either

World War II veteran Andrew Haines decided years ago that he wanted a Norse-inspired funeral upon his death, and the U.S. Coast Guard obliged. Mr. Haines, who emigrated from Norway in 1927, scaled down blueprints for a 100-foot ship to a few feet in the years before he died. It was then up to the Coast Guard to decide whether it would ignite the boat and send-off Mr. Haines‘ cremated remains in accordance with his wishes. “Oh, I was thrilled,” Mr. Haines’ son Andy told Navy Times on Thursday. “I was thrilled when the Coast Guard called and told me

Following in the footsteps of Robert Gates, his Obama administration predecessor at the Pentagon, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has criticized the president’s handling of a key battleground in the war against Islamic terrorism. Gates’ criticism centered around Afghanistan. Panetta’s focuses on Iraq. In Panetta’s forthcoming memoir “Worthy Fights,” which Time Magazine has excerpted, Panetta argues that Iraqi leaders privately wanted U.S. forces to stay behind after the formal 2011 withdrawal; that the U.S. had “leverage” to strike a deal; and that the Defense and State departments attempted to do so. However, says Panetta, “the President’s team at the White

Are significant chunks of the mainstream media in despair over Barack Obama? This past week, Obama used 60 Minutes to attempt to shift blame for the failure to anticipate the rise of ISIS, endured a cover-up of White House security disasters by the Secret Service, and saw a government-agency report that he had skipped nearly 60 percent of his intelligence briefings. The reaction from some longtime Obama defenders was swift and harsh. “President Obama this week committed professional suicide,” wrote former CNN host Piers Morgan, now an editor-at-large for Britain’s Daily Mail. He called Obama’s throwing of the intelligence community under the

Obama´s Cowardly Behavior

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is understandably miffed with President Obama´s criticisms of settlements (through WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest) considering he had met with him only hours without bringing up the subject. So why did Obama behave in this manner? I suspect he did this because Netanyahu publicly admonished Obama not enter into nuclear deal with Iran that leaves the Mullahs on the "threshold" of being able to develop nuclear weapons. This is, after all, a matter of Israel´s very survival. But Obama doesn´t take criticism well and wanted to get back at him. So once Bibi was safely

It is no secret that the Obama administration has demonstrated questionable commitment to the rule of law. It has undermined the separation of powers by disregarding congressional enactments while pushing executive power far beyond its constitutional boundaries. It has further undermined limited government by disregarding federalism and pushing Washington-knows-best legislation that far exceeds anything the Founding Fathers could have conceived. In recent years, a politicized Justice Department has refused to defend bipartisan legislation in court and resisted congressional oversight. Its practice of entering into extremely generous “settlements” with environmental and other liberal groups raises questions about whether the administration is welcoming

How to introduce students to conservative thought? It’s hard. The colleges and universities aren’t interested. The media and popular culture are hostile. What if young Americans nonetheless become aware of the existence of such a thing as conservative thought? How to convey its varieties and complexities? Even tougher. You can write articles and put things online, but there’s an awful lot competing for young people’s attention these days. But there’s good news nonetheless. Help has arrived. Its name? President Barack Obama. The decomposition of the Obama presidency has created what Obama might call a teachable moment. This is, needless to say,

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

WASHINGTON — About a month from the 2014 midterm elections House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was already predicting a sweep for her party in the 2016 election. Referring to Republicans, Pelosi said, "Their days are numbered. I know that in two years there will be a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President." Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win. While she was clearly looking ahead the top House Democrat was careful not to concede the election this November. Pressed about the prediction she made

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
