I Think I Have A Man-Crush

The Texas GOP tried to sell us their candidate, a carefully picked, ticket-punching RINO and the citizens spoke….HELL NO !!! As a result we elected a rock-star and he won in a landslide. Former Texas Solicitor General and the Son of a Cuban legal immigrant, Senator Ted Cruz.

Since his election he’s set the Senate and DC on fire with a set of gigantic, neutronium balls and fearlessly outspoken, conservative ideas. The GOP establishment hates him, the left despises him, but right thinking Americans recognize the man is a super-star. Unlike Benedict Rubio (Fuck him mercilessly), Ted is a true conservative, Tea-Party loving, honest politician. All we need to know about him is to take a look at the list of those that hate him. Ted was absolutely on fire at the recent Tea-Party rally to “Abolish the IRS” and I had to stand up and cheer listening to the speech he gave there.

This guy is going places and the GOP establishment needs to be afraid, very very afraid, there’s a new sheriff in town that is going to actually serve his constituency instead of his political sinecure. The people are going to take their party back and with politicians like Ted, we’ll do it.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill and send Washington a “strong signal” of the grassroots opposition to the bill.

    “This is urgent,” Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border.”

    “The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country,” Cruz explained.

    Cruz urged supporters to share the petition with friends and to “act now–without delay–to help us defeat amnesty and stand for legal immigration!”

    I will repeat what I said on my FB page:

    Dear Texas – thank you for giving us Ted Cruz. Could you please clone him, so we can have more? Love and kisses, me.

    He’s the perfect politician.

    Although, I’m uncomfortable with the whole “Let’s go into Syria and destroy the chemical weapons” thing. I’m not sure why the hell he even went there.

    Im sure he’s a great guy and all, but at this moment I wont be placing any “faith” in any politician, period. I think the system is utterly and irreversibly corrupted and the only way to fix it is to wipe the hard drive and re-install the constitution.

    Troy said it first, let’s see if he can keep on the straight and narrow for a few years without getting corrupted, co-opted and rinofied by the rest of the slime in DC and then stay on that path when he runs for President!!!. President Cruz – yes that has a very nice ring to it. .. By the way, Ted would not just happen to be short for Theodore would it??? Just asking :em03:

    Best of luck. It didn’t work for TARP (and if a call ratio of 300:1 against, didn’t work, nothing will); it didn’t work for ObamaCare; and it won’t work this time, either. The Elites want amnesty, and they will get it by hook or by crook.

    On the Senate floor on Friday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) mocked and blistered Karl Rove and his “fat cat” and “country club” pals at American Crossroads for being out of touch with working class Americas on immigration.

    Sessions, one of the staunchest opponents of the Senate’s immigration bill, said Rove “raised a bunch of money for Crossroads to run ads in the last election that was supposed to elect Mr. Romney. Didn’t do so well, Karl. Sorry about that. Wish you’d been more effective.” American Crossroads wasted more $100 million last year and supported no winning candidates.

    He suggested Rove and his “Crossroads guys” may have been more effective if they talked to regular people and discovered their opposition to amnesty.

    “But the crew, the Crossroads guys that go to the country clubs and drink with each other and plot and think they know something about politics–and haven’t been out talking to real people in decades–they thought they knew better,” Sessions said. “And they’ve been telling us all how we’re supposed to do this and what good politics is.”

    He said Rove recently said in an op-ed that, “it’s important that Republicans avoid calling a ‘pathway to citizenship’ amnesty.”

    “Well, thank you, Mr. Rove. I appreciate that advice,” Sessions, who said he has known Rove since college, sarcastically said. “I think he’s one of the most talented people I know, but I’m not taking his advice about this subject matter.”

    He then added, “But the fat cats who fund American Crossroads I’m sure see it differently.”

    Sessions has repeatedly emphasized that the Senate’s immigration bill would devastate America’s working class.

    Obama’s Legacy: The Audacity of Audacity

    For the past five years or so I’ve been musing on Obama as man, as politician, as president. But now I want to look again and say a few words about Obama as precedent.

    . . .

    But it strikes me that one of Obama’s most pernicious influences—and there are so many to choose from—has been that he has let future politicians know what is possible in America. And, unlike his supporters, I don’t mean that in a good way.

    There used to be certain assumptions on the part of politicians who would be president.

    –As president, you needed to keep a lofty tone and leave the more vicious and divisive attacks to your Vice President; it wouldn’t be “presidential” otherwise.

    –You had to make sure you tended to a faltering economy or you’d be blamed.

    –You had to support our allies and be tough with those countries who were working against us.

    –You had to propose legislation on issues the American people cared about and supported, not just your pet projects, and that had some bipartisan support, especially if the changes were sweeping.

    –You had to answer to the press or they would turn on you.

    –And you had to respect Congress and the Constitution enough to go through Congress in order to do what you thought should be done if it was a power Congress usually had, not go around it through executive order

    Some of this could be violated, of course, and has been, particularly the last one, because power is one of the things for which presidents strive. But if you went against too many of these rules the American people (and perhaps Congress, perhaps even your own party in some cases) was very likely to turn against you and not re-elect you. Or if it were a second term you’d lose your “mandate” and political capital and become a lame duck immediately. At least, that was the fear. So the idea that there would be consequences for such things helped hold previous presidents in check to a large extent, although of course there were some who violated this tenet or that and survived.

    But generally there was a certain respect for the unwritten law of natural consequences: the belief was that the American people had its limits. You could con all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, and all that. But enough of the people would be onto your game to stop you.

    Obama has proven all of that is bunk for the right person at the right time. What’s more, his entire career has proven that he is that person.

    He has managed somehow to be one of the trickiest and dirtiest of politicians (from the start of his rise in local Chicago politics, as I’ve described many times before), one of the most double-crossing and double-dealing and just plain doubling, presenting himself as one thing and acting like another while simultaneously presenting one of the smoothest and most above-it-all facades ever exhibited by a politician.

    He has talked his way out of every jam, or stonewalled his way out, with nearly complete impunity and lack of consequences. He had accomplished very little in his path leading to the presidency—except, of course, having won election to his previous positions—and still had no trouble convincing people he should receive the highest office in the land at a fairly young age. And most importantly, in his first term he egregiously violated every one of the rules I listed above and was re-elected. His popularity had fallen but not enough to matter in any way in terms of consequences.

    How he has managed to accomplish this is something I (and many many others) have described in literally hundreds of post. So that’s not the point of this one. The point of this one is to say that he has shown future presidents that these previous assumptions are false, and that the rules that held presidents in check can be violated with impunity if you know what you’re doing and do it with enough audacity.

    If that stands, it may be one of his worst legacies: the knowledge that you can fool enough of the people enough of the time and get away with it.

    HempRopeAndStreetlight growls and barks:

    Reason and logic tossed before barking moonbats is wasted effort. Besides, these are people as a class we will eventually have to kill if we are to rebuild a free republic, so why play nice with them now?

    Once the bullets and bombs start flying, it will pay to have them as dehumanized as possible.

    Sounds cruel and harsh? Well, yeah, but war is. It’s not about being nice and respectful, it’s about destroying your opponent totally – and make no mistake – this is their goal towards us – and the hostilities have already broken out – the flakes like Voldemort up there are trying to destroy us and our way of life. Since they hold the reins of power, they can use the instruments of the system to kill and destroy us. They can still afford to wrap the iron-fist in a velvet glove, and do serious damage.

    Deliberate damage. Their goals and purpose is to demolish our families, our way of life, and our opposition to them.

    They want us ground under foot, and only argue from disingenuous positions. Hurling anything but invectives and lead in their general direction is to cast pearls before sub-human swine.

    But their intent is still our destruction, despite their lies to the contrary – they are working with their every breath to silence and destroy us all.

    Sorry, I’m a realist. Don’t feel like bonding with or showing respect towards people I will probably have to shoot at some point – and people who will be shooting back at us – either directly, or through the proxies they elected to do their dirty work for them.

    Enemies.
