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. Continue reading
