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?
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
