Not so nice behavior from the Texas Tea Party Express

Glen Addison is running for senate in Texas. He is a Ron Paul supporter and is very much like Dr. Paul in his beliefs. Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst are also running and one of them will probably win. They are both major crooks.

I saw this post on my facebook from Glen Addison's campaign manager:
This is Glenn Addison's camapign manager. The Tea Party Express who have officially endorsed Ted Cruz invited Glenn Addison to Speak Friday May 4th we have the email to prove it. Glenn Addison was called this morning and over the phone was uninvited. This is outrageous behavior and reflects very poorly on the type of organization The Tea Party Express has become.

I wish Ron Paul's name was not associated with any type of tea-party or being founding father of it. I think it will keep Dems and Inds. away in a general election. They have turned into a big laughing stock thanks to Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.

I'm still on the fence about them

Establishment is a dirty word around here, so that's why I can't support the group until they are rid of that word. Also Romney spoke at one last year. ( http://www.boston.com/politicalintelligence/2011/08/romney-a... )

From WAPO:

Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul will hold a rally together in Austin on May 6 with Tea Party Express, an establishment-backed conservative group. While Paul has yet to win a presidential contest, his supporters are making inroads at numerous state conventions.


Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Rand Paul endorsed Ted Cruz some time back.

I've heard nothing about Ron making an endorsement in this race although I think he did mention him recently in a favorable light.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

tea party express are a bunch

tea party express are a bunch of fakes and opportunist. I also wish Dr Paul wouldn't associate with them. However since he is I can only assume that it's a calculated move.

If the Tea Party Express did not support Dr. Paul then they

simply would not come to his functions. Right? There are extremists in every group. The cream WILL rise to the top.

~Your perception becomes your reality~

using just congress as one example

cream might rise to the top in coffee...not in politics

that said, I'm not involved in any way with Tea Party Express and I'm not in Texas.

From headlines only, I've gathered Cruz has endorsed Paul...from this I gather perhaps it was last minute, and preceded by a possibly better candidate.

I'll leave it to those in the know, those in Tezas, like the person making this post to sort it all out.

It's their turf, their battle and they understand it better than I.

I supported Paul before there was a Tea Party.

Ignore the leadership. They

Ignore the leadership. They are corrupt, but the sheep who follow them are not. In other words: Use their functions to educate them!


.. all that you need to know...

Ron Paul will convert

Many in the tea party express. That is good enough for me.


Sorry Crunch ... since I know some of the insiders ... aint gonna happen

They USED him ... now watch them discard him after they no longer need him !!! ROFL

Politics is a DIRTY game !! :(

Come take it

TeaPartyExpress = Americans for Prosperity = Koch

industries. FYI

Isn't the Tea Party Express

Sponsoring the tea party rally Ron and Rand wil be at in Austin??

Yes there is a Tea Party sponsoring them

not sure about Texas Tea Party Express

what tea party ?

What Tea Party is sponsoring them (who)

The tea party 4 establishment aka tea party express is an ESTABLISHMENT supported group that are being used by the repub party to get THEIR folks in !!!

WHY have they not endorsed Ron Paul ???

Why did RED TED endorse perry but now has not endorsed Ron Paul ??

Sorry ... I smell fish here !!! pass me those tator tots n cole slaw will ya ??

Come take it

Yeah, it is those guys.

Made me wonder what is going on. Commented about it on another thread but, didn't get any replies. I find it odd that crew would sponsor anything for Ron Paul. Call my cynical but, I don't trust them.

Edit: http://www.dailypaul.com/229876/ron-rand-paul-to-hold-major-...

Yeah, it is those guys

you got that RIGHT Nonna

Now I'm not a brain surgeon but I KNOW why they invited Ron Paul !!!

RED TED can not draw a crowd ... BUT Ron Paul sure DOES !!!! lol

What upsets me most is that Ron Paul LET THEM USE HIM LIKE THAT !! He was sent MANY requests to research cruz before stepping out & endorsing him !!! :( There are just too many things that cruz is not alligned with him on !!! I am very disappointed in RP :(

Come take it

I would seriously doubt it,

since the Tea Party Express are a bunch of neocons run by Dick Armey and Freedomworks, which is one of the most well-known fake tea party astroturf groups.

I can't help but chuckle

every time I hear about a guy with a name like that running a group of neocons. You couldn't have planned a better joke.

Glenn Addison is NOT going to win.

Cruz would be a sight better than Dewhurst. Downvoted.

Didn't you read my post?

Don't start typing if you have not read and comprehended what I wrote. Cruz or Dewhurst will win. Now go back and read my post. Did I say Addison will win? Jeez, people. Is it so hard to read a complete post? I am still voting for Addison, even if he is not going to win.

I will also vote for Addison...

and the TPE should be ashamed of themselves for NOT allowing a constitutional conservative like Addison to speak.

This kind of thing makes me seriously wonder who is running things with that group....

Addison did not...

... endorse Ron Paul... Dewhurst is a RINO and makes Perry look like a legitimate snake oil salesman... Dewhurst is spreading lies about Cruz... which means he must be OK.

Anyway, I'd like to see more debate. Basically, if Debra Medina tells me who to vote for I'll gladly obey. Debra is Ron Paul on steroids. What a gal.

Plano TX

WHAT ?????

sleuth51 >>> ROFL where have U been ??

Addsion DID endorse Ron Paul PUBLICLY on the Mike Church show >>> DUH??

Also Dewhurst is not spreading LIES >>> pull your head out & DO your own research !!

Oh that's right ... U dont think for your own self or make your own decisions >>> U rely on others ... like Debra Medina ... Who I LIKE & support ... was in Austin last week WITH Glenn Addison supporting her at the property tax hearing ... BTW where were U ??

I have the utmost respect for Debra ... but she is NOT my GOD nor do I idolize her !!! Those that are groupies MUST get a reality check & learn to THINK on their own rather than being own life support via someones butt !!!!! & trust me Debra Medina does NOT want that either !! So get a reality check dude or dude-ette ROFL

Do ya idolize RP too or do ya support his stand on the issues ??

Come take it

I did read the entire post.

The point of my comment was to simply point out that Cruz would be a sight better than Dewhurst and since Addison has zero chance of winning, a vote for him might give Dewhurst the nom.

Tea Party movement hijacked

The Tea Party Express is the best example of this.
