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!

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.

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.

As Texas debates the implementation of some of the strictest abortion laws in the country, for at least three female lawmakers and candidates in that state, the debate has become intensely personal. The most high-profile of the three, of course, is gubernatorial hopeful and state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), who revealed recently in her memoir that she had medical procedures to end two pregnancies. “Our baby had a severe brain abnormality,” Davis said in a television interview. “We knew that the most loving thing that we could do for our daughter was to say goodbye.” Davis, now trailing badly in her campaign, made

In his speech to the United Nations last week, President Obama pledged to the world that the United States would use its might to stop the horrific depredations of the terrorist movement variously known as the Islamic State, ISIS, or, as he calls it, ISIL. “This group has terrorized all who they come across in Iraq and Syria,” the president proclaimed. “Mothers, sisters, daughters have been subjected to rape as a weapon of war.

The woman was grabbed from behind as she was walking from a grocery store to a friend’s home in Fairfax, Virginia, on the night of September 24, 2005. The attacker dragged the 26-year-old into a darkened park and beat her and raped her. He then began to choke her, and as she lost consciousness it must have seemed that his might be the last face she would ever see. But the attacker was apparently

What can you tell about a restaurant from its menu? A lot more than what´s cooking. That´s what linguist Dan Jurafsky reveals in his new book, The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu. Jurafsky, a professor of linguistics at Stanford, looked at hundreds of examples of food language—from menus to marketing materials to restaurant reviews. Along the way, he uncovered some fascinating patterns. For example: In naming foods, he explains, marketers often appeal to the associations that we already have with certain sounds.

In attempting to downplay the political damage from a slew of second-term controversies, President Obama has counted on the American people having a very short memory span and a healthy suspension of disbelief. The time-tested strategy for Obama: Claim he´s in the dark about his own administration´s activities, blame the mess on subordinates, and hope that with the passage of time, all will be forgotten. Harry Truman, the president isn´t. He´s more likely to pass the buck.

Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder Monday announced a new federal program to target high-crime cities, including Chicago, Ill., where shootings and other violent crime have skyrocketed. Holder, who said last week he will resign once a replacement is confirmed, also announced that the Justice Department has awarded $124 million in hiring grants to 215 police departments across the country for the Community Oriented Policing Program, also known as COPS. Holder said the money would pay for nearly 950 new officers, who will mostly take on the job of community policing aimed at reducing street crime. The grant gives police departments the money to

Top government officials and military brass repeatedly warned of the consequences of sticking to a timetable on full Iraq War troop withdrawal, but President Obama proceeded with the plan in 2011. U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker cautioned against such a move in the years beforehand. “I am certain that abandoning or drastically curtailing our efforts will bring failure,” he said in 2007. “An Iraq that falls into chaos or civil war will mean massive human suffering, well beyond what has already occurred within Iraq’s borders.” He told PBS later that he and Gen.

The inequality police are worried that we are living in a new Gilded Age. We should be so lucky: Between 1880 and 1890, the number of employed Americans increased by more than 13 percent, and wages increased by almost 50 percent. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the Barack Obama years will not match that record; the number of employed Americans is lower today than it was when he took office, and household income is down. Grover Cleveland is looking like a genius in comparison. The inequality-based critique of the American economy is a fundamentally

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
