I know the difference between an ENDORSEMENT and PRAISE. This post is intended to be an endorsement for Pete Sessions and John Carona! I have to wonder though; does Katrina Pierson and her staff know that difference and only make corrections to their LIES and other falsehoods once they have been taken to task over them? Read on folks, this is a good one!
Cruz Makes Distinction Between Endorsement and Praise
What’s the difference between endorsing a candidate and merely supporting one?
The question is the source of some confusion in the Texas Republican primaries, where the state party’s biggest star, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, is maintaining a distinction between endorsing a candidate and just supporting or speaking favorably of one as he tries to sway voter behavior.
Cruz has officially endorsed five Republican primary candidates in Texas. He has also publicly praised several others, most of whom have carefully touted his praise to supporters while avoiding the word “endorsed.”
“I’m honored and humbled to share with you that Ted Cruz has announced his support of my campaign,” Don Huffines, a Republican in an expensive primary fight with state Sen. John Carona of Dallas, wrote in an email to supporters Monday. SOURCE
I have never had a lot of use for Ted Cruz, I voted for David Dewhurst in the primary for U.S. Senator a while back. I only voted for Ted Cruz AFTER the primary when he was running against a Democrat for the seat from Texas in the U.S. Senate.
This morning as my wife was on her way home from work she heard a *Ted Cruz endorses Katrina Pierson* advertisement on WBAP 820 AM, a local Talk Radio station here in the DFW area, stating unequivocally that Ted Cruz had ENDORSED Pierson.
I know that Sarah Palin has openly endorsed Katrina Pierson but that woman (Palin) is too damned dumb to breathe if it required any logical thought process at all.
Are we playing a game of semantics here? Ted Cruz stated in the above article that there is a distinction between Endorsement and Praise. I can find NO source to hold up a claim that Pierson was endorsed by Cruz.
According to my sources, “Cruz made a statement where he has said exactly who he is endorsing. Katrina Pierson is not one of those endorsed. He won’t return our calls. However he has not stopped her from using his name or voice.”
Cruz has publicly praised — though has stopped short of endorsing — several other Republican candidates in Texas, including state Sen. Ken Paxton of McKinney, a candidate for attorney general; Katrina Pierson, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas; and state Rep. Van Taylor of Plano, a candidate for state Senate.
So, now I have to ask; was Katrina Pierson’s staff LYING with what they had on her web site?
Does Katrina Pierson think the people of Texas are stupid? You see, on her web site, Katrina Pierson for U.S. Congress, as recently as this morning, Feb. 27th, there was a BIG flashing banner with a picture of Ted Cruz and the text stated that Katrina Pierson was endorsed by Cruz.
That is now GONE, replaced by a Sarah Palin endorsement.
Ladies and Gentlemen; I submit to you that there is a strain of dishonesty running through the Pierson campaign, and I further submit that I am of the opinion that Katrina Pierson, and her entire staff, don’t have the collective intelligence needed to properly represent the people of Texas 32.
I am not going to beat around the bush here; I wholeheartedly endorse Rep. Pete Sessions and Texas State Senator John Carona and I don’t give a damn what Ted Cruz, the TEA Party or anyone connected TO the TEA Party have to say or what they think about it. I have had a lot of conversation with Pete Sessions and I am very confident that he is the best person of this part of Texas.
Sen. John Carona is a gentleman I have not had the pleasure of meeting in person just yet, we are friends on Facebook and we have talked on the telephone, and as with Pete, I am very confident that John Carona is the best person of this part of Texas.
It takes a lot more than a few passionate words to be a Congressional Representative, well, a good one any way. TEA Party slogans and Libertarian rhetoric are ALL that Pierson has in her favor.
Here is a comment that a local reader made on this post: Some TRUTH about Pete Sessions:

Ms. Pierson visited our school’s Young Americans for Freedom Club today — Congressman Sessions visited us on Monday, and we are required to give equal time in interest of not showing any bias — and the difference between the two is like night and day. Ms. Pierson went on and on about things she doesn’t like about Mr. Sessions, how he doesn’t live in Dallas, is siding with Nancy Pelosi, etc. We’re holding an extra meeting just to clear up any confusion our members might have; he certainly lives here and led the campaign to fire Pelosi! Very disappointing that someone who thinks herself worthy of such an important office would stoop to such a low level.
It’s pretty sad when you have to hold another meeting to clear the air of the STINK left behind by a person such as Katrina Pierson.
Let me say this in ALL sincerity; IF you live in Texas 32 and IF you want a TEA Party Representative in Congress, IF you want to place a Ron Paul CLONE in that seat and IF you’re so blind to the facts that you somehow believe Pierson to be a good candidate, go ahead, vote for her.
If she should happen to win I promise you this; before her 1st term is over YOU will be hanging your head much like many of the Obama voters are currently doing, asking yourself, “How in the hell did we get fooled so badly?”
I can tell you exactly how; Pierson has run her campaign like it would be run if SHE were a Democrat, and given the current POTUS, if ANY thinking American needs a reminder, elections DO have consequences.
The difference between Katrina Pierson and her madcap campaign and that which was run by Barack Hussein Obama is about as close as it can be. Lies have been told, unfounded criticisms have been repeated ad nauseam, the RACE CARD was played by Ms. Pierson and her staff and all we have heard is how fearless Ms. Pierson is. Being fearless is a great thing, if you don’t have the intelligence to know how to USE that fearlessness, and when to back away, you present a clear and present danger to yourself and others.
Ask yourself this question, and answer honestly; WHY do you suppose that many of the Founders of the TEA Party have walked away and the TEA Party is now the last bastion of Libertarian BS and Ron Paul rhetoric?
