Ted Cruz Gives Texas Conservatives Chance to Change Washington
by David Bossie
June 2, 2012

On the heels of the conservative movement’s success in Indiana with a critically important primary victory for Richard Mourdock over RINO U.S. Senator Dick Lugar, our focus must now shift to Texas and the U.S. Senate run-off between Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst. This race is billed as another seminal election for the conservative movement – and it should be. On July 31st, Texans will have a clear choice between a dynamic conservative change agent and a status-quo moderate.

Ted Cruz is a citizen politician who wants to come to Washington to take on the establishment. David Dewhurst is an old fashioned politician who wants to come to Washington to beef up the establishment. Washington needs to be cleaned up from the top down. Conservatives have rejected the "go along to get along crowd" because more often than not they have compromised our core conservative beliefs. Ted Cruz wants to take on the Republican Party leadership when they get weak-kneed, David Dewhurst would just simply bow to the pressure.

There’s a divide emerging in American politics. Some people recognize that our country is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy while others simply look the other way. The Washington establishment presided over America’s shameful charge towards bankruptcy. With over $15 trillion in debt about to choke us to death, Ted Cruz is committed to righting the ship of state that has been adrift for years. He is a bold leader who will be on the Washington establishment.

Wisconsin Officials Predicting Heavy Turnout in Tuesday Election
Wisconsin votes June 4, 2012
CBS is reporting that the number of absentee ballots that have already been cast foreshadows particularly heavy turnout in Tuesday's recall election.
Local election clerks who track absentee voting through a statewide computer system had issued at least 182,000 absentee ballots by midday Friday, foreshadowing what is expected to be heavy turnout next week. Almost 231,000 absentee ballots were cast during the 2010 gubernatorial race, which saw Walker beat Barrett by about 125,000 votes. However, only a third of Wisconsin clerks use the tracking system, which means the actual number of ballots issued so far in the recall is likely much, much higher.
Clerk's office employees said they extended hours on Friday, the last day for absentee voting, because of the high volume of voters seeking to cast their ballot ahead of the June 5 recall election. Employees told CBS Affiliate WISC upward of 1,250 people voted in Madison on Friday - the most of any day so far, officials said.
Former President Clinton spoke in Milwaukee on Friday to endorse Democratic challenger Tom Barrett, saying that both parties need to work together for Wisconsin to see an economic recovery. Referencing events last year when Democrats fled the state to block a vote on collective bargaining privileges, Clinton told the crowd that, "constant conflict is a dead bank loser, and you need to get rid of it".

In the meantime, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch says that President Obama's lack of presence in Wisconsin 'speaks volumes' and doesn't bode well for Democrats.

West: Jobs Data Will Make Obama Fight Like a Cat in the Corner

Friday’s dismal jobs report will back President Barack Obama into a corner and make him a “desperate person” with the election now five months away, says Florida Rep. Allen West.

“When you’re a desperate person — much the same as a cat being cornered – you’re going to come out and really fight even stronger,” predicted West in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV shortly after the Labor Department reported that U.S. employers had created only 69,000 jobs in May.

That figure is the lowest in a year and led to the unemployment rate ticking up, fueling fears that the economy is heading in the wrong direction under the president’s stewardship.

“I think that the president’s policies are failing the American people,” explained West. “We have now hit 40 consecutive months of unemployment in the United States of America at or above 8 percent.”
