I have been meaning to post a story on this and was reminded by a friend, neighbor and a regular reader. Thank you TomR. I skipped the first 3 paragraphs and *cut to the chase*, Pete Sessions and his support for Jeb Bush.
Texas presidential endorsements beginning
What about the other presidential candidates?
Well, U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas, seemed to be pretty much backing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, in one report although he was noncommittal when asked by the Star-Telegram. According to Politico, Sessions got a call from Bush two months ago and “told the former Florida governor he’d be backing him.”
There are some strong ties: Former President George W. Bush lives in Session’s district and former President George. H.W. Bush named his father, William Sessions, to be FBI director.
“I would guesstimate that there are 20 members right now that are in support of Jeb,” Sessions told Politico. SOURCE
I wasn’t surprised when I read this a while back, the article above is from May of this year, I even expected Pete Sessions to support Bush, it’s what *political buddies* do.
It’s called cronyism.
I’m not saying Jeb Bush is evil or anything like that but he is certainly not MY cup of tea. I perused this site, Jeb Bush on the Issues, it is a pretty comprehensive site, I just don’t know much about its accuracy, and I saw *some* issues that I could support Bush on, but I also saw quite a few that weren’t even close to being Conservative, leaving me feeling that Jeb Bush really IS the RINO he is accused of being.
A RINO is a Republican In Name Only, a despicable critter, one that will use the GOP to attain their goals while being closer to the platform of the DNC, the Democratic Party, than they are to the *advertised* platform of the GOP/RNC, and not even remotely close to the beliefs of Conservatives.
In fact, some so-called Republicans HATE Conservatives, some of them hate the TEA Party and everything it represents too, and honestly, I can’t disagree with their dislike of the TEA Party and its disorganization.
Yet when asked by the Star-Telegram, Sessions said in a statement, “Our party is blessed with an outstanding field of candidates who believe in the conservative ideals I have worked to promote.”
Pete Sessions really needs to remember what he told some of his former supporters about Conservatives and how he reportedly calls people like Ted Cruz all kinds of names in private. At least John McCain had the guts to call names in a public format.
Right after the last Congressional election Pete Sessions showed ALL of us here in the district what he thought about us and our opinions and wants.
Sessions backed John Boehner remaining as Speaker of The House even after he was told repeatedly by the people of TX-32 that we, a majority of the district, wanted Boehner gone. Sessions loves his seat on the powerful House Rules Committee and he (Sessions) knew that anyone not backing Boehner would be booted from any committee they were a part of.
Sessions is Chairman of the House Rules Committee and that apparently meant more to Sessions than the folks that put him in office did.
Well, when you’re serving your own interests and ignoring those of the folks that elected you it tends to make some of us doubt the sincerity our Congress Critter, and I have gathered from the people I talk to that Sessions has lost a great deal of support in the District and that his endorsement, or should I say *support* of Jeb Bush has cost him even more supporters of his own.
And if ALL of this doesn’t wake you up; it is time for the dynasties of the Bush and Clinton families to be broken. We DO have a couple of great guys running for President, but Jeb Bush isn’t one of them, no matter what a *crony* RINO of the GOP establishment says.
The People are tired of the BS, we’re tired of getting screwed over so out elected officials can enjoy a life most of us can’t even imagine. We are watching, and waiting, and that day of reckoning is fast approaching.
