It’s been clear since Dan Crenshaw made the runoff in CD2 that the momentum was on his side. Obviously, Kevin Roberts and his sidekicks recognize this, so they bring out the big word – liberal. But…well, take a look for yourself. First the friendly Dr. Hotze and Mr. Woodfill let us know that Crenshaw is a big ol’ librul:
Those two righteous men are as bold as lions, don’t you know?
Now, let’s review those “liberal” positions of Dan Crenshaw: (or you can go to dansbiggovernmentplan.com)
We live in interesting times. Republicans USED to be in favor of controlling the costs of entitlement programs. Apparently that isn’t in vogue these days, instead we need to expand entitlements so that politicians can be elected.
So let’s take a look at what Crenshaw’s plans are.
Medicare – allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices like the VA does.
Sounds good to me. But for Kevin Roberts, Dr. Hotze and Mr. Woodfill, it is liberal to try and be fiscally conservative. Why, Medicare recipients have the RIGHT to demand name brand drugs regardless of the cost!
Transition Social Security to a pay-as-you-go and investment plan with private accounts.
Does that sound liberal to you? It is a fact that the Social Security system is getting top heavy with retirees vs active workers. Dan Crenshaw says, you know what? That’s a problem. Here is how we fix it. Liberal?
Dan Crenshaw wants to avoid unexpected cuts to Social Security benefits in the future.
Back to the Republicans used to believe line, Republicans used to believe in being honest and addressing problems head on, which Dan Crenshaw does. But the righteous lions think that we should continue to lie to retirees instead of addressing the problems. Liberal?
You want to know where Kevin Roberts stands on Medicare and Social Security? Well, you’re going to have to ask him because his campaign website doesn’t have a single reference to Social Security or Medicare. How about that? Old school Republicans might think a guy running for Congress should mention those very important issues.
You know what Kevin Roberts’ campaign website does have? Here are a few snippets:
- Get rid of the “Deep State” in Washington by ending unneeded agencies and removing thousands of bureaucrats. (oooh, skeery!)
- Strengthen our border security with walls, thousands of more border agents, and equipment to detect and apprehend those crossing illegally. (can we say buzzwords?)
- Relentlessly demand action, funding, and support from federal and state agencies. (snort, like our other Republicans?)
- Demand sanctions on Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and any businesses that help them foster terrorism and hostile actions against free people. (wow, that has worked so well for us!)
- Stop liberal attempts to infringe on law-abiding gun ownership. (back to them buzzwords again)
- End federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. (buzz, buzz, buzz)
Is this guy serious? I thought that he was but clearly he has taken a page from every establishment Republican playbook. Good grief.
Meanwhile, Dan Crenshaw is taking policy seriously and giving voters a clear look at what lies ahead.
Liberal? I don’t think so.
4/12/18…DanMan agrees with David Jennings. Been a while.

Counterfeit conservative Kevin Roberts is showing his true colors. His one session as a mediocre moderate state rep had Rice University’s Mark Jones rating him well left of the average republican state rep for the session. See for yourself. https://www.tribtalk.org/2017/11/20/the-2017-texas-house-senate-from-left-to-right-post-special-session-edition/
Did Kevin attend a liberal Mass. university and then get a degree from another liberal John F. Kennedy school at Harvard? Did Kevin get his money from the “Deep State” of the Washington DC swamp?
Did Kevin come out of nowhere….no voting history, no Tea Party Experience, No Republican Club experience?
Is it desperation to expose the liberal policies of the unknown? Is Crenshaw another John Kerry? John McCain? John Cornyn?
Got to look at the facts
Orbit Astro says
Voted for Kevin on March 6. But this nonsense is clearly coming from the Roberts campaign. I’m done with him.
I’m not associated with the roberts campaign. I just hate to see people falling all over a “Ghost” candidate with no business experience, no voting history and throwing down “cards” to win the sympathy of voters, who can’t see through the smoke and mirrors. Real questions are not cheap shots. Not having a voting record really raises questions……..never participating in Republican and conservative club/organization activities raises questions……
Sharon Jennings says
Kevin Robert’s has a proven record of conservative leadership. He has lived in Congressional District 2 for 30 years. He did not move to this district in the past two years to run for Congress. Dan Crenshaw has been on the public dole his entire adult life. I deeply appreciate his military service. I just as deeply believe that does not qualify him to be a legislator.
You think that service in our military is the same as being on the public dole?
I hope Dan Crenshaw crushes Roberts and his sycophants.
Fat Albert says
“Dan Crenshaw has been on the public dole his entire adult life.” Hmmm. . . So substandard pay, for a difficult job, done under uncomfortable and often extremely hazardous conditions is now the equivalent of welfare.
If that’s the attitude and intellect of Kevin Roberts supporters then perhaps he deserves to be defeated. Tell me, does does he agree with your assessment of Dan Crenshaw’s service?
By the way, enlighten us, what outstanding acts of public service demonstrate Mr. Roberts qualification for public office?
If military service qualifies as “being on the dole” yet doesn’t qualify someone for political office, I’d like to hear what does. The dole part is so outright offensive that Kevin best publicly denounce it or lose a lot of support. As far as military service is concerned, there was a time when it was almost impossible to get elected to any position of substance unless you served honorably in the military.
Fat Albert says
Just out of curiosity, Sharon, does Mr. Roberts share your moronically stupid idea that honorable military service equates to being “on the dole”?
Orbit Astro says
I don’t know anything about Crenshaw. I just know ugly political attacks when I see them. And risking his life overseas immunizes him from criticism that he was not here to attend political functions.
Voters aren’t “falling” for something because they disagree with you on candidates. They see something they like in Crenshaw. Maybe Roberts should offer them something more besides ugly political attacks.
My support goes to the candidate with character. Roberts and his supporters have shown theirs, and lost my vote.
Jim Lennon says
After months of careful observation, conversation, interviews, speeches, forums, receptions and mindful of the excitement Dan generates among almost all of the grassroots conservatives, conservative republicans, mainstream republicans, Republican leadership in Harris County and Texas, and Millennial voters is the fact that Dan Crenshaw is generating Ted Cruz level momentum and voter commitment, which is natural since Dan is Ted Cruz level bright, Ted Cruz level conservative policy wonk, and Ted Cruz level committed conservative.
Janet Thomas says
Roberts touts his “political experience”, 5 months in the State House is hardly “political experience” and he was a do-nothing State Rep during those 5 months in office. Looking at bills he sponsored consisted of some child related legislation and a whole lot of bills naming some day in favor of some citizen in Texas. The citizens in CD2 deserve better. Dan Crenshaw is the true conservative running for office, Roberts will be a do-nothing in D.C. and we have enough of those occupying seats in D.C.
What is Crenshaw’s history, experience in anything other than the Navy? Wake up and face the facts of reality.
BoomStick Ken says
Let me get this straight. He made it through the most elite special forces training in the world, then graduated from the top university in the world, and you’re trying to say he has no “experience?” lol
Oh but Roberts did a couple months in the legislature and worked at a law firm. Yeah, that’ll really drive voters to the poll.
Please please please let’s make this campaign about “experience.” Vote Crenshaw!
No more rinos in congress says
Mmmm working for a plaintiff law firm and sucking money from big corporations to line your pockets sounds more like being on the dole than fighting the enemy in Afghanistan.
I’m a small business owner who supports our Troops. I recognize that Navy Seals are the elite of our military. They have backbone and will lay down their life to protect the freedom we hold dear. That’s what Republicabs need in Congress. We need a man to stand tall… to not waiver for easy cash, to fight the establishment and vote conservative all the time… including on tort reform! Vote Dan Crenshaw and vote for a strong America!
Interesting that a Navy SEAL who graduates from Harvard after losing an eye in combat is called out for being on the “public dole” but a guy who worked for a drug company and then his father-in-law’s plaintiff’s law firm (guessing that’s a nice six-figure salary year over year) is considered a public servant?
Interesting the state of political dialogue today.
Jack Rosson says
Let’s get the facts straight. Roberts is the office manager for his brother-in-law’s plaintiff law firm where they siphon money mainly off of drug companies like Merck and J&J. I see where he is donating or loaning hundreds of thousands to his own campaign. How much do you wanna bet that this is simply big bonuses coming from brother-in-law who would like to have his own flunky in the US Congress. Tough choice – an office manager who sponges off of family or a war hero with a degree from Harvard.
Fat Albert says
Apparently Sharon has decided to opt out of the conversation. . . . Bye Sharon!
