With national ambitions, Ted Cruz
and Rick Perry ramp up rivalry

Dallas Morning News [TX], by Christy Hoppe

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/9/2014 11:33:07 AM

FORT WORTH — The burgeoning rivalry between Texas’ Republican titans took center stage Friday as both assailed Washington but also managed a few subtle swipes at each other. Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. Rick Perry are in the pool testing the presidential waters and hoping to make a splash among the 500 conservative activists at the national RedState convention. But also on display were the sharpening themes of the nascent campaigns and the sharpening thrusts of their own differences. Perry sold himself as an experienced chief executive who has made hard decisions and limited government overreach. He has suggested voters are wary of

Texas is a great state, but there are 49 (or 56 if you´re the Emperor) others.

I like both these men, but there are also other men and women on my list.

I would LOVE to see Perry as President and Cruz as VP. After 8 years, Cruz would have the experience he lacks right now. The two of them would absolutely shake up Washington. Both of them are fearless! Both of them would take on the Old Guard! Both of them would put our country first! We need all of the above...this time around!

For what it´s worth Snopes says the same state opinion is false. Not that they should be trusted any more than Wikipedia.

Perry/Cruz would be a winning team for many. But there are others. Some known, and, perhaps, some that will be rising to the top to be known. Unlike years before, we´ve a number of Conservative future candidates.

It´s the rats who are floundering this next trip out.A faux Native American, a dunce of a vice president, and a former first lady Hold your sides when laughing, or you will feel pain.

NO Presidential candidate would pick Ted Cruz for his VPres running mate nor do I think Cruz would ever accept. The VP is expected to back up the Pres in everything he says or does and to take a back seat to the President. There is no guarantee Cruz would always agree with a Republican President and it is not in his makeup to take a back seat to anyone. And no President would pick a VP who might have a brighter spotlight on him than the President.

Gov. Perry and Sen. Cruz:

The absolute last thing we need is for the two of you to, as was reported in the DMN this morning, "...trade jibes...." Both of you need to outline clearly how you are going to get our country back, deal emphatically with Islamic Jihad, and shutting down our borders and shipping all these illegals back where they belong, and crushing the cartels, not how much better you are than the governor or the senator. We could care less about "personal competition" and you will be turned off running your collective pie holes.

Now, get busy and produce solutions. And Perry, work on freeking Speech 101 tied to all of the above.

The Lt. Governor and the Legislature combined are the power brokers in Texas and Perry is more the ceremonial figurehead. Besides Perry has sold out Texas roads to foreign entities for tolls and is not above "I will scratch you back if you will scratch mine". I voted for Perry (RINO Lite) only to keep a full fledged RINO (Kay B-H) taking the Gov´s chair.

I still like Scott Walker, but I´m concerned about his reelection in WI. Walker/Martinez would be a strong choice, IMO.

Trey Gowdy needs to be AG. Ted Cruz needs to be Senate Majority Leader and that´s up to him. McCain needs to be retired as do Graham, Ayotte, and Rubio.

SOS should be Mitt Romney. All his predictions have come true so far in regard to foreign policy. No reason he couldn´t be SoS.

Well, to be frank, unless the new President is of a very courageous sort like a Ted Cruz, there will be no bold Cabinet/Supreme Court appointments LIKE a Senator Sessions, a Trey Gowdy for AG. An establishment-minded President will not go there no way! The situation
now requires uncommon courage to act not just personal morals and ethics. This means we can´t just go with executive experience and think that´s enough. I too like Governor Walker! Cruz/Perry would be gresat but the nation will never go for 2 Texans. Also, I love Perry but Cruz´ intellect and oratory skills far surpass his so I do not think Perry would ever consider it.

I have a visceral hunch that a white guy from Texas (or any other southern state, for that matter) cannot win a national election as a Republican.

I also believe that the key race to watch, perhaps more important than any Senate contest, is Scott Walker´s re-election bid in Wisconsin. If he loses, after all he´s done and been through to introduce common sense reform, then we can kiss goodbye any chance that the American people will respond to a conservative appeal in 2016.

Rick Perry’s immigration record: A hard
line at the border, a softer touch in Austin
Washington Post, by Karen Tumulty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/15/2014 2:37:34 PM     Post Reply
Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s ongoing deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops along the Rio Grande may be helpful in his second try for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. The move also continues a distinctively Texan balancing act on immigration that Perry has been maintaining for well over a decade. The question is whether Perry represents the future of his party on immigration — or whether his nuanced positions on the issue will again become a liability in national politics. “It takes a very skilled politician to come across as tough on border security while, at the same time, not

With approval ratings for Congress falling somewhere below used-car salesmen and three-card monty dealers, it’s not often one will see an incumbent underperforming their individual approval rating. Yet that’s just what Jeanne Shaheen is doing in her Senate re-election bid in New Hampshire. According to a new CNN poll of likely voters, Scott Brown has pulled into a 48-all tie with Shaheen, even though she has a majority favorable rating from the same pool of voters. The difference seems to be “presidential drag”: Scott Brown, the former senator from Massachusetts who moved to New Hampshire to run in a more

It was the time of unraveling. Long afterward, in the ruins, people asked: How could it happen? It was a time of beheadings. With a left-handed sawing motion, against a desert backdrop, in bright sunlight, a Muslim with a British accent cut off the heads of two American journalists and a British aid worker. The jihadi seemed comfortable in his work, unhurried. His victims were broken. Terror is theater. Burning skyscrapers, severed heads: The terrorist takes movie images of unbearable lightness and gives them weight enough to embed themselves in the psyche. It was a time of aggression.

Under what authority is President Obama going to war against ISIS, the omnivorous octopus that has ruthlessly gobbled up territory in the Middle East? His advisers cite the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against al Qaeda. That´s somewhat confusing, because al Qaeda has become an ISIS antagonist. Indeed, there is quite a bit about the fight against ISIS that remains opaque. What is it "we" are doing, exactly? Does it compare to what we´ve already done in Iraq and in Afghanistan? If the threat is not imminent, why would we want to do anything? Here´s my attempt to sort

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

WASHINGTON — Islamic State militants, who once relied on wealthy Persian Gulf donors for money, have become a self-sustaining financial juggernaut, making more than $3 million a day from oil smuggling, human trafficking, theft and extortion, according to U.S. intelligence officials and private experts. The extremist group’s resources exceed that “of any other terrorist group in history,” said a U.S. intelligence official. The Islamic State, or ISIS, has taken over large sections of Syria and Iraq, and controls as many as 11 oil fields in both countries, analysts say. It is selling oil and other goods through generations-old smuggling networks under the noses

If the Republicans win the Senate in November, the first thing they’ll say is: Finally, we can pass all of our bills and force President Barack Obama to deal with them. The second thing they’ll say is: Oh, wait a second. This is the Senate. That tension — between their desire to bring Obama to his knees and their ability to actually do it — is the political reality that will determine the Republicans’ legislative strategy if they win the Senate majority. They’d love to set up clear contrasts between the parties and pave the way for 2016. But everything they do

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked?

But he has identified the wrong monster. It is the climate scare itself that is the real threat to civilization.

In interviews and public statements, administration and military officials described a battle plan that would not accelerate in earnest until disparate groups of Iraqi forces, Kurds and Syrian rebels stepped up to provide the fighting forces on the ground.
