Why Won’t Konni Burton Debate Mark Skinner?

Konni Burton:  Project “Reflected Glory”

KONNI CAN’T MAKE THE ONLY DEBATE?
As mentioned in the prior post, the ONLY debate for the Senate District 10 race happens Monday, and Konni Burton is begging off due to a “prior engagement”.

Politically it’s probably best for HER to avoid the debate. Once  off the topic of abortion, she’s pretty lost. I’ve heard her speak at forums, and even with nobody firing back she isn’t that strong.

That said, she’s running largely on Ted Cruz reflected glory… and I never saw Ted Cruz  run from a fight.

Skinner: Campaigning on his own merit.

Before we make someone a Senator…
VOTERS deserve to know they have the requisite abilities. She’s already missing the typical personal accomplishment we’d expect of someone running for Senate… no extensive business experience, no prior legislative office… so it IS in voters best interest for her to attend this debate Monday, even if it might not be in hers.

Peyton Manning: Wishes he’d skipped game and we just assumed he’d have won if he was there.

If instead she goes the path of political expedience, does this not tell us something? What engagement is more important than the ONLY debate?

Debating is something actual senators have GOT to do… 
If she can’t hack a debate against Skinner and others in her own party, how would she do against the opposing party in the Texas Senate?

OH WAIT! This just in!
I’ve been quietly assured that if she had time to be there, Konni would win.

And somewhere, Peyton Manning is saying… “Dang! Why didn’t I think of that?”

WHY Is Konni Burton Afraid to Debate?

The recent Tarrant County Conservative Candidate Fair was a well attended event, BUT. The plurality for the Senate District 10 race went to Konni Burton.

Konni is running on the “I know Ted Cruz personally because I campaigned for him” platform. She’s never actually held political office, never legislated. Has no business experience to speak of, experience meeting payrolls, etc. None of the personal accomplishment that normally accompanies a political resume.

That notwithstanding, simply having pictures of you standing by Ted Cruz may in some cases be sufficient when you’re talking only to die-hard tea party types.

Likely not with the rest of the public, so for the general election whoever we nominate better have some personal cred,  not just reflected glory from someone else.

Hopefully her fans will discover some actual qualification she has not yet told us about. Between you and me, I know people that helped get Bush elected, and they aren’t pretending that is a qualification to be HANDED a senate seat without other qualifying credentials.

You won’t hear about her depth of qualifying attributes  if you watch the ad video she just put out. In that she stresses only that she is “the only true conservative in the race”… then cuts to a picture of her standing beside Cruz.

[Wait. ONLY Conservative? She learned nothing from Wendy Davis puffed bio escapade.]

Meanwhile KONNI BURTON begged off attending THE ONLY DEBATE set for SD10… on February 10.

Konni Burton won't attend debateThat’s right… the one who wants us to think Cruz’s reflected glory qualifies her for a senate seat as her FIRST public elective office isn’t showing up for a debate. Wow.

Somebody needs to re-think that campaign, or grow a pair and make it to the debate. We can’t afford a senator that isn’t capable of expressing themself and prevailing.

KONNI BURTON… why won’t you attend the ONLY debate?

Funny. I never saw Ted Cruz run from a fight.
