Ted Cruz

According to a blog called Rare, (It’s red at the center, and that’s actually pretty clever. I hear Weiner started a blog called “pink in the middle”..) Ted Cruz has been surprised by the defeatism in the Republican Party.

Ted Cruz is surprised because he believes one fundamental untruth: Republicans want to beat Democrats. The real truth is only two letters off: Republicans want to be Democrats.

Think about Chris Christie’s “chew the fat” tour with Obama around Sandytown. Now think about his chastising of Rand Paul, and his calling the “libertarian streak” in the party “dangerous”.

Think about John McCain, this week, walking into a meeting of Democrats…to applause.

Think about this phrase, uttered by our candidate, in a debate he supposedly won:

“I like government regulation”.

Ted Cruz should know there is defeatism in the GOP. They have wasted all their energy trying to defeat conservatives.

Just like they tried to do to him.

    As much as I think Senator is a God-sent to us, perhaps he is a bit too naïve’ for his own good. He as many Americans believe is that we have a 2 party system, that is looking more like the USSA.

    • Pastor Dwayne

      Or Rome!!!

      • MsMoomMist

        It does seem to be burning while our (supposed) leader plays and spends our money and country into oblivion.

  • longhornblondie

    I’m astounded that you have called Cruz and IDIOT. I’m really disappointed in you. I like Cruz am shocked by the level to which many in the RNC/GOP have stooped.

    • jeanbean14

      I think someone else called Cruz an idiot. This piece was a commentary on that article.

      • Joseph Kurt

        I was being sarcastic when I wrote it, I was using a “tongue-in-cheek” title…

        • longhornblondie

          thank you for the verification. I thought that it seemed very out of character.

    • Ed_Stark

      Literacy is very important if you are going to be on my team. Please work diligently to read critically.

      • longhornblondie

        Perhaps, I do not desire to be on “your team”. . . since I have no idea what team that is. . . Rudeness is not a virtue.

    • VonZorch Imperial Researcher

      You need to have your sarcasm detector re-calibrated.

      • longhornblondie

        I realize that now, but as you can tell, I wasn’t the only one that was confused by the sarcasm.

  • Steve Randolph

    Good job Kevin. Cruz is naive at best. There are NO politicians on the hill that are not corrupt. Our govt is the epitome of corruption. It is just a matter of time before the fall.

  • tibby

    I don’t think he’s naive, I think he’s disgusted.

  • jeanbean14

    I like that Ted Cruz has not let the old guard GOP (Democrats in Republicans’ clothing) shut him up. I hope he stays strong. I personally am not shocked by the idiocy of the Republicans, but Cruz has not disappointed me yet, and I’m hopeful that he can continue to stand on solid principles.

  • Tom Wagoner

    I’ve been saying for several years the GOP would rather elect a democrat than a Republican they cannot control. Keeping the ” Washington Good Old Boys Club” alive and well is way more important than the peoples will.

    • Tom Dwyer

      Tom W. You hit a very sore spot indeed & though I won’t vote for a Democrat, I have to agree 100% your statement about “good old boys”. That like a baby’s diaper needs changing & for all the same reasons.

  • Irish78623

    OMG people do you NOT understand Satire or SARCASM?

  • mjsorl

    Take the party to a new place: GET RID OF THE ESTABLISHMENT Repubs, and put in what we need, strong core values, FAMILY, Country, Honesty!

  • Raymond Gallant

    The GOP is the root of the problem and mccain and graham are a symptom
    !

    • GomeznSA

      If you had placed ‘elites’ right after GOP your statement would have been a ’10′ – as it is it’s probably a ’9.2′.

      • mogul264

        Amen! It’s the old white men at the top, the ‘leadership’, supposedly, but who do anything BUT! All these guys are faint-hearted Nellies, afraid to ‘antagonize’ the Democrats! If they do, the Dems will call them names and blame them for all the country’s ills! Of course, if they DON’T, the Dems will call them names and blame them for all the country’s ills!

        So, WHAT THE HELL, let’s go, pedal to the metal, full steam ahead! Kill ALL funding for: Obamacare, the IRS, the Dept of Education, in fact ALL the programs Zerobama has done since his “election”, if you can call it that! Let the government fail, let the chips fall where they may! At least, we won’t be borrowing MORE MONEY from China to further finance Zerobama’s give-away programs!

        AND, let the Democrats OWN this mess! It is due almost entirely to Zerobama’s spending since taking office, anyway! Our national debt is a total disgrace!

  • Joseph Kurt

    Guys, guys, Ted Cruz is not an idiot. Hopefully, he is the future of the party. It was a bit of satire, a bit tongue-in-cheek, if you will. And the man is not naive.

    • longhornblondie
  • ztitans1

    I am just going to pop open a cold one and watch the country fall apart.

    • Joseph Kurt

      Nah, join the fun in predicting it! See if you can guess which part falls first! And we’ll drink, no doubt…

  • AbnDoc

    I would agree with one caveat. Old school Republicans want to BE Democrats. The newly elected Republicans want to BEAT Democrats. Old School Republicans are just Democrat Lite. They aren’t dedicated enough to liberal ideas to fully embrace them but they are too scared to embrace real Conservative policies. That is why they will never win.

    They are too liberal to get Conservative votes and the liberals figure why vote for a RINO when they can get a real Socialist Democrat elected?

    • Joseph Kurt

      I like everything you just said.

      • j dare

        Ditto!

  • j dare

    I am reading a few posts referring to Cruz as naive. He will only be naive if people like myself who believe the things he is saying, sit back and do nothing. I am going to write posts in support of his ideas and send emails to my representatives and call out those who are working against these ideas. I know you all will do the same. (I hope)

    • Melissa Katsmom Votano

      I like him and I am happy to assist you in your endeavors.

  • Tom Dwyer

    The conduct of McCain & Christie these past few weeks has led me to withhold my contribution & membership to the RNC. There is no helping a team that cannot get on the same page in the playbook. I am open to Republicans spanning opinions from “middle of the road” to “hard Conservative. However, I cannot see any Republican jumping across the aisle to enact downright destructive legislation.

    • MsMoomMist

      I did this also. I told and wrote on my last pledge that until the RNC do something about Senator McCain and call those who fight for freedom names, I would no longer donate to it. I repeat my message every time they call me.

    • kevin11falcon

      I love it when the inbreds, infight. Guess what clown. You’re 2 cents won’t stop big GOP money from eviscerating Conservatives.
