GOP TX Senate Frontrunner Raises Cash From Obama Friends

26th February 2012

Read it.

Chalk another one up to “bipartisanship.” David Dewhurst, the lieutenant governor of Texas, spent time in November hanging out with his left-wing friends in Washington D.C. to raise a little scratch for his run for the Senate. One of those friends was Tony Podesta, a major fundraiser for the Democratic Party, who held a fundraiser at his townhouse for Dewhurst.

People like David Dewhurst are the main factor in making Republicans the second-banana party.

He was doing what he always does: reaching across the aisle. He’s not a Washington insider yet, and he’s already a Washington insider. No wonder the Texas press has so often labeled him “bipartisan.”

‘Reaching across the aisle’ means ‘holding out your hand for a payoff’. ‘Bipartisan’ means ‘willing to sell out your side for a big enough payoff’.

    I did some work for the company Dewhurst ran before he sold it and went (back) into politics. (He worked in DC in his youth.) The guy was very, very connected with Washington politics.

    As much as we’d all like a charismatic, intelligent leader to step forward and get the country straitened out, the harsh reality is that 99.9999% of effective politics takes place behind closed doors with guys like Dewhurst.

    Even as I was typing that last sentence I realized that “charismatic, intelligent…” is probably how many of the left viewed Obama when he showed up. I guess it’s no surprise that he has become the very proof of my point.
