Well, sometimes, people disappoint you. Or, in this case, disappoint me. I wasn’t certain that the Downtown Houston Pachyderm Club was meeting today because there was no information on the website or Facebook, but I took a chance and drove downtown anyway. Fortunately, they were meeting. Hey, I’m a member in good standing (I guess, even though I never get emails from them, even after paying the dues), so, you know, why not make the 45 minute drive?
Well, to be honest, maybe I shouldn’t have made that drive. You know, I’ve supported that club for some time. I’ve also supported the Kubosh brothers and still will – they’ve done a bang up job with this club and other issues in Houston. Until today, but I guess everyone deserves a mulligan.
At any rate, I made the drive, paid for parking, paid for the very good meal, and what do I get?
People attacking a young military veteran simply because he supports Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst to be the next US Senator from Texas. Not just any veteran, but Marine Capt. Dan Moran (Ret.). Capt. Moran was severely injured in Iraq and has had to suffer insults from the Ted Cruz campaign for months. I had to shake my head today as once again, he was attacked simply because he supports Lt. Gov. Dewhurst.
I guess that the good news is that no one called him deformed, as other high profile Cruz supporters have done. Today, they wanted to know why Lt. Gov. Dewhurst didn’t overturn the “Rose Bush” bill and why he didn’t singlehandedly secure the border.
I’m not sure I can address these issues without using expletives. Randy and Michael are smart guys and I don’t have a clue as to why they don’t understand that the “Rose Bush” bill is a CONSERVATIVE tradition!!!!! Drives me freaking nuts when people don’t understand that! What the heck do we need to do to drive that point home?
And then former candidate for Pct 4 Constable Robert Lozano couldn’t accept the FACT that Texas has spend hundreds of millions of dollars trying to stop a FEDERAL issue! Drives me freaking nuts! Capt. Moran answered Mr. Lozanos’s question but that wasn’t good enough. Mr. Lozano had to berate him because ” the Lt. Gov. didn’t do enough”, whatever that means.
STOP ALREADY! What the heck is wrong with Republican voters? Why is heckling a decorated soldier acceptable?
I don’t get it. Very disheartening. I guess that because Lt. Gov. Dewhurst has a real record and Ted Cruz doesn’t, people think it is okay to hate on him.
