Media dogpile on Ted Cruz
Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/16/2013 9:28:05 AM

Freshman Sen. Ted Cruz R-Texas is breaking china in the Senate – and the media is responding. Here are the latest media stories and columns reacting to Cruz’s Tea Party firebrand behavior – and fretting about his lack of comity in the Senate. New York Times: The G.O.P.’s Nasty Newcomer “When a Vesuvius like John McCain tells you that you belch too much smoke and spew too much fire, you know you’ve got a problem.” Washington Post: Ted Cruz, making quite an entrance “Ted Cruz is not going to win Senator Congeniality. Not that he cares.

Comments:
Those in the media and the Democrats are so predictable. They will always attack those who threaten them. Cruz wasn´t spared from his own party either, McPain defended Hagel against Cruz, which made no sense since he himself attacked Hagel. Nothing makes sense in Washington.

I am hoping more will stand up for what is right by gaining some backbone from Cruz. Contrary to all the negative articles written about him this past week, he is asking the questions which are needed to be asked and not just grandstanding for the cameras like McCain and Graham. To h.e.l.l. with the status quo! Keep up the good work, Senator Ted Cruz! We, the people, are fortunate to have one of your character and morals representing Texas and the rest of the nation. God Speed!

I agree with #13, and I hope Senator Cruz is opening the door to a more diversified Senate, instead of the good-old-boys club it has been.

OP hit the nail on the head. How can McPain criticize Cruz on his questioning methods of Hagel when he himself, along with his best friend, Ms Lindsey, kind of made hamburger out of Hagel? Cruz was gentle compared to those two.

Washington is now like Alice in America´s Wonderland where "up is down and down is up," "black is white", "small is big and big is small", etc.

The MSM better not get too full of itself blasting Cruz, he is far more skilled than they are at arguing: Cruz is the former Texas solicitor general and has argued before the Supreme Court nine times, more than any practicing lawyer in Texas or any current member of Congress.

BTW and unrelated, we just learned that Justice Scalia has taught Justice Kagan to hunt, and apparently she enjoys hunting and wants to bag an antelope.

So many Senators have given up their zeal for representing the people and defending the Constitution. Because they didn´t have the strength of character to stand up to the biased media and the majority, they have adapted the go-along-to-get-along strategy. I just can´t wait until the Senate actually begins working on budgets and regulatory matters. Cruz is way out of the class of the hacks who are drafting laws and regulations.

Isn´t this getting old? Come on.
What does it take to think of a clever game plan to use against the media. Where are all the generals? The stinking media is out to destroy any Republican who gets national attention. Maybe it´s time to play rough and mess with their heads and not be afraid to do so.

Okay here´s an idea. What if they create a swarm defense machine with at least six Ted Cruz like politicians attacking the media from various directions all at the same time. It may take a awhile but after throwing a few counter punches that hurt, a time or two, you´ll see them shrink and run away. Shake them up, confuse them. They are the enemy within. The GOP needs to learn how to be better prepared going forward. Turning the other cheek is not going to win votes or respect.

Right now Cruz is their the target du jour. However, I have no doubt he will let the media bully him without a good fight. Go Ted.

I´ve met Ted´s dad and it is apparent where Ted´s "fire" comes from. His dad is a wonderful force for good. Coming from Cuba, he is a real advocate for freedom.

I just hope that Ted, his dad, and other Hispanic men in Texas can gain a platform and influence other residents of Texas who may soon gain the right to vote. I´m trying to influence every young Hispanic person I know. The ones I know are hard working and have never taken welfare. They are natural Republicans, but may need help understanding that.

I find it interesting that, if the Republican establishment had its way, Cruz would never had won the primary.

In the NYT hit piece, it mentions Cruz was born in Canada. I don´t believe much in the NYT, so can anyone else verify?

Anyway, we need to clone Cruz. Maybe he´ll set an example and other senators will follow. That is exactly why the media are dogpiling - because they´re afraid this might be contagious.

I do live in Texas and I´m working hard to get rid of the RINO who supported Charlie Crist from FL and Murkowski from AK along with other progressive RINOs.

Cornyn is not a conservative and never has been. He voted to confirm Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Sotamayor and Kagen.

I could give you lots more examples of how the turncoat is helping liberals destroy our nation.

Baloney. Cornyn is an excellent conservative senator and obviously, Texas agrees. Being head of the RSCC is a hugely difficult job and someone is always left unhappy. Right now as the #2 Republican in the Senate, even lefty site Politico calls him a "conservative hard-liner" and he´s fighting Hagel. I don´t know whom you prefer, but we should be careful in our pursuit of the perfect, because everyone´s perfect isn´t the same.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
