    No regrets in this race. Either man would have been fine. The most important thing is to not foul up and let the demokrats sneak into office. That is absolutely critical.

    "I didn't argue the case..."
    All the tons of negative ads didn't work.
    Good for Cruz. Good for Texas.

    RINOs take note: Shot across the bow.

    This was huge!

    Cruz beat Dewhurst in this runoff by quite a large margin.

    The polling places I drove past yesterday in Houston were packed....lines around the block. Neighbor said he waited an hour in line and everyone he talked to was voting for Cruz.

    RINO Dewhurst thought this was his and he spent tons of money to beat Cruz and even had the blessing of Rick Perry and tons of the TX GOP country clubber insiders. In the end..he had his head handed to him on a platter!

    Like Dick Luger....this sends a very loud message that the establishment country clubber GOP'ers and moderates days are numbered.

    Now...if we could just have this effect on the national RNC we'd be in great shape. You'd never see anybody like McCain or Romney get anywhere near the nomination.

    Yeah, if only...

    Except you can't, because you have to vote for Romney.

    Yes, Cruz and Mourdock will be a force in reforming the Senate. Good job Texas.

    It's looking more and more like Mr. "most electable" is blowing this. It's too bad the RNC is afraid to get behind a real conservative. Our bet bet looks like stalemate.

    & appear to have had a lot of company.

    Yup, mission accomplished, tea party. The Republican Party is finally free of RINOs. No need to keep going after them.

    Seriously, stop looking for any more, there's nothing to see here...

    Honestly, no RINOs left, especially not any running for any office of significance...

    Please stop going after RINOs now. You've proved your point, tea party. But now you need to stop. The stakes are too high. Now is the time to toe the establishment party line and throw your support behind the biggest RINO of them all. :whistling:

    There are still plenty of RINOs and establishment GOp members here in Texas that really have to go.

    Namely Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn and ...yes...even Rick Perry.

    Especially Rick Perry ....
    Who talks a good game for the election, but goes back to doing nothing after he's in ... :upeyes:

    It's too bad we had to vote for him to keep out an out and out communist, but that was the choice ...

    Next time will be different ....

    Yeah...as one that lived under Bill White as our mayor...you did NOT want that POS taking Perry's place.

    But yeah..next time....different story. The country clubber insider establishment GOP is becoming extinct in this state.
