Steve Stockman: Sen. Cornyn just "sounds conservative"

In an interview with WorldNetDaily published on February 13th, 2014, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) once again attempts to prop up his Senatorial campaign with a continuation of the Tea Party's war against reality.

Stockman has already denied (unsuccessfully) that he had a prior felony drug possession, as well as accused his opponent, incumbent Senator John Cornyn, one of the most conservative members of the Senate, of actually being a liberal.

In the WND interview, Stockman renews his charge that Cornyn is a liberal, insisting that he can't be trusted because he "only sounds like a conservative."

"Even though his ads say he is a conservative, (Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate) Wendy Davis sounds like a conservative," said Stockman. "Obama sounded like a conservative when he was running, if you actually listened to the rhetoric. But we have to look at his voting record and his positions. And it is abundantly clear that they are different than the mainstream conservative values."

Stockman also accuses Cornyn of supporting the Affordable Care Act, even though Cornyn had voted against it several times.

Fortunately, polls showed Cornyn leading Stockman by a margin of roughly 44% (though Stockman apparently feels that is something to brag about).
