Bob Deuell “No More Mr. Nice Guy”

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matthew 7:15

I have been active in the Tea Party movement for 3 years, and was involved in the Bob Hall for Texas Senate District 2 campaign.  I and many others worked hard to help Bob meet the considerable challenge of an unknown Tea Partier wresting the Republican nomination from a well known & well funded incumbent.  The focus of our efforts was to debunk the myth that Senator Robert Deuell was a conservative.  Bob told us from day-one that the campaign against Deuell was to be clean. There would be no name calling or character assassination.  We were to stick to the issues alone.  This made our job much harder, but we rose to the challenge, presented the facts, and proved our case to anyone who would listen.

Throughout my experience on the Hall campaign, I spoke with many people.  Both supporters and detractors of Deuell said the same thing, and I heard it often, “Dr./Senator Deuell is a nice guy.”  Many Hall supporters said that they really liked and respected him, but disagreed with his voting record.  I met and spoke to him once.  He seemed nice enough to me.  I have heard that he tells people his is a Christian.

However, something has happened that should put to bed the notion that Bob Deuell is a nice guy.  Before I reveal what it is, I need to lay some groundwork.  Senate candidates must have lived in the state for a minimum of 5 years. Candidate applications include residency questions.  Bob Hall inadvertently gave an incorrect answer on the number of years he had lived in Texas.  He has lived here for 10 years.  The oversight indicated that he had been here for less than 3.  He submitted the application to GOP Headquarters in Austin, unaware of his mistake. It is the responsibility of that office to review each application, and make sure that everything is in order.  He was told in December that it was satisfactory.  He checked with them again in early March, and again he was told that everything was good. It was not.

There are two scenarios here, both of which expose Bob Deuell for the unscrupulous politician that he is:

First Scenario

The “oversight” of Hall’s state residency error was intentional, and communicated to the Deuell campaign.  Upon learning of the error, Deuell sat on it until the March 9th deadline.  Late that afternoon, he contacted the GOP office, and filed a challenge based on insufficient state residency.  On the same day at 5 p.m., Republican headquarters in Austin called Hall’s home and left a message on his answering machine, telling him his application had been challenged by Deuell, and he had 1 hour to correct it.  Bob was told several days later that faxes and emails are not accepted, meaning that he would have had to have submitted a correct application IN Austin in 1 hour, (by the 6 p.m. deadline).  This was humanly impossibly, naturally.

 Second Scenario

The GOP oversight of Hall’s state residency error was an honest mistake.  The Deuell campaign obtained a copy of the application and went over it carefully.  They found the error and kept it quiet until the last minute.  Sometime in the late afternoon of the last day, he challenged the application.  Not because Hall hasn’t lived in Texas long enough, but because he didn’t meet the 6:00 deadline, he has been declared ineligible, and his campaign is over.

I will leave to my readers to decide if the GOP office truly missed the error (twice), or if they were somehow complicit in this dirty trick.  Short of an independent investigation, we will never know.

Throughout the campaign, we have seen no Deuell signs anywhere.  Out of 12 candidate forums, he only showed up for 4.  At those forums, people were taken aback at his indifference, aloofness, and emotionally flat demeanor.  Instead of addressing his liberal voting record, he talked about playing drums-now there’s a hot button issue!  If you have heard Bob Hall speak, you know that he does so with great conviction.  The contrast in presentation was dramatic, which left us scratching our heads.  “Doesn’t Deuell want to win?”  “Doesn’t he realize how repeatedly not showing up for forums makes him look?”  Being new to the process, it never dawned on us that the fix was in.  Deuell knew all along that he was running unopposed. Talk about disenfranchising voters!

Where does this leave us?  Now we have two myths to debunk.  One, that Deuell is a conservative, and two, that he’s a nice guy.  Bob Deuell is a big tax-and-spender, a radical environmentalist, a suck-up to political correctness, a shady politician, and an embarrassment to the voters of District 2.  This fiasco illustrates how deeply Deuell is immersed in Austin’s culture of corruption.

Regrettably, we are stuck with him for another term, but his treachery will not be forgiven or forgotten.  Power must be taken away from corrupt politicians and returned to the people.  Rather than being discouraged, our resolve has hardened.   Deuell is at the top of the RINO Removal List and in the next election, an army will rise to vote him out of office.  After all-you reap what you sow, and hell hath no fury like District 2 voters scorned.

The record shows Rinos in Texas- Top 3 most liberal Senators include a Republican

Date posted: February 28, 2012

Texas Senator Bob Deuell of District 2 has the distinguished honor of being one of the top 3 most liberal Senators in the state. The challenge is he is says he is a Republican and there are Conservative Republicans who have endorsed him. The “Good Ole Boy” Party in Texas


From Ray Myers; Kaufman County Tea Party. 

What is a RINO?  A Democrat that runs as a Republican– better yet– who runs as a Conservative. We have been trying to educate our voters on just who we can trust. Check out this excerpt from the Texas Tribune. This study from the Rice University Political Science Department verifies what Tea Party Conservatives have been saying to our constitutes all along. “Bob Deuell is no Conservative!”  See the article for yourself.
 “Mark P. Jones, chair of Rice University’s political science department, has developed rankings of Texas state senators based on their votes during the regular and special sessions this year. According to his analysis, the most conservative senator was Brian Birdwell, R-Granbury, while the most liberal was Rodney Ellis, D-Houston. Bob Deuell, R-Greenville, and Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio..” 
A step further– State Rep Lance Gooden is no Conservative—his greatest contributorin the past session was Steve Mostyn, Democrat Trial Lawyer — and a huge Obama supporter who promotes Socialist ideology daily.
It is time to wake up! Help us spread the word — Let’s elect honest people we can trust. Tell ten neighbors and friends!!!!
“We will not return the principles of government that our founding fathers decreed unless we change the present leadership.”- Ray Myers
It is time to Elect the RIGHT Bob

The “Good Ole Boy” Party in Texas

How the “Party of the Incumbents” Tries to Keep Challengers Out of Government 

by Mary Lou Bruner 

Recently Dan Flynn got an A+ Report Card from a group of impressive Conservative Organizations in Texas.  But many Texans are wondering how someone who got an A+ Report Card for his conservative stand on the issues could back someone who got “F’s” and failing grades from most conservative organizations… Why would someone who consistently votes conservative support a man such as Bob Deuell who consistently votes with the liberal Democrats?   

We cannot understand why Dan Flynn has endorsed Bob Deuell, a RINO with the following liberal record.

*Bob Deuell proposed raising taxes and fees to balance the budget.  He did this recently during the        82nd legislative session.

*Bob Deuell continues to advocate for a significant increase in the tax on gasoline.

*Bob Deuell has consistently voted for bills which expanded government intrusion in the private sector.

*In March of this year Bob Deuell proposed using the entire Rainy Day Fund to help balance the budget.

*Bob Deuell introduced legislation to use taxpayer money to buy needles for drug users.

*Bob Deuell prefers appointed judges instead of elected judges. Electing judges prevents cronyism and makes judges more accountable to the people rather than to a party or a politician.

*Bob Deuell sponsored a bill in the 81st legislative session which would allow the VOTERS       LIVING INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS to levy a special tax on CITIZENS LIVING OUTSIDETHE CITY LIMITS.  This amounts to taxation without representation.

*Bob Deuell was instrumental in blocking the appointment of a Christian Conservative as Chairman of the State Board of Education during the 82nd legislative session.

Why is Dan Flynn, a conservative, supporting a RINO like Bob Deuell who might as well be a Democrat considering his voting record?   Perhaps there is a logical answer.

Perhaps Dan Flynn is supporting Bob Deuell because they are both members of the “Party of the Incumbents”, a group of “elitists” and “good ole boys from both political parties” who help each other get re-elected year after year, after year regardless of the effectiveness of the incumbent or his or her voting record.   It seems like a conservative would want to support other conservatives instead of a liberal RINO legislator who consistently votes for higher taxes, bigger government, and more restrictions and regulations. 

We must get the attention of Incumbents who believe “Politics as Usual” is acceptable.  Some of them must be fired because they have failing grades.  Bob Deuell is one wh
o should be fired.

Watch this video and be ready for the battles ahead.
