The People ~ VS~ The Tea Party Pundit: Inside Texas Politics (Updated)
I had a very cool opportunity to debate on Inside Texas Politics with Katrina Pierson a staunch Newt Gingrich supporter who is a well known Tea Party activist turned media pundit and Jonathan Neerman a GOP Romney supporter. I would like to share with you the video below so I can clarify and bring a few things to your attention.
Point #1 ~ Katrina says that “no other candidates can address the issues that we have in the country today.”
I beg to differ, Rick Santorum is the candidate who is showing up at events all across this country and sharing his vision and solutions. What is truly exciting is that people are responding and telling their friends and neighbors about it and the pundits and mainstream media which is what Katrina sounds like with Newt’s campaign talking points are being proved wrong. A prime example is Santorum’s appearance in Louisana tonight. This live stream is being shared all across the country via the relationships that have been created by the grassroots. As I have said, unlike in the past when we would visit and debate politics on our front porch now our front porch has become a laptop and geography does not matter.
Point #2 ~ Katrina says… “You have to be on the ballot to qualify for the Delegates. Newt Gingrich has a delegate problem because a majority of people are not voting for him when he is on the ballot. The only way Gingrich or Ron Paul have a chance is by a brokered convention and it is called brokered for a reason. In Texas we are preparing for either situation, and we will be prepared to deliver Texas to Rick Santorum. #TexasPicksRick
Update: Twitted out today from
@ricksantorum: “Illinois Voters: I’m on the ballot in every congressional district & appreciate your vote on Tuesday.”
Point #3 ~ Again Katrina uses the talking point that Newt is the only one with a Vision and a solution. Really~ I think the Duggar Family would beg to differ on that.
Point #4 ~ And this is a big one. THE CATHOLIC VOTE for Romney; Jonathan Neerman states that it is stunning to see the exit polls from some of these races with the Catholic Vote going to Romney. Actually that is not accurate. When you look at the numbers: when you combine Santorum and Gingrich the Catholic Vote does not go to Romney it goes to them. Just more proof that Newt is slitting the vote. I so wanted to make that clear and they did not come back to me. It is important that people understand that Romney has a real issue with the Catholic Vote.
Truth Matters and Romney seems to be lacking the ability to be an honest broker when it comes to similarities with the Romneycare mandate and the Obama HHS mandate.
If Mitt Romney is not telling the truth to the the American people is he really any different from Obama and the lies he has told the American people. The question is are you willing to take that chance.
