Ted Cruz offers new
formula for Republican Party

Dallas Morning News, by Todd J. Gillman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/1/2012 11:06:20 AM

WASHINGTON — As Republicans regroup from their drubbing on Election Day, Texas’ Sen.-elect Ted Cruz is offering a prescription to rebuild: The party must be less timid toward Democrats, less hostile toward Hispanics, and more focused on upward mobility than on protecting big business. “It’s easy to be demoralized, to look at these elections and throw up your hands in despair,” he told conservative activists at a fundraising dinner Thursday, but history teaches that “things can change very, very quickly.” Republican hand-wringing and finger-pointing have been in full swing over the president’s victory and Democratic gains in the Senate.

I forget, didn´t someone endorse him in the primary against the GOP´s chosen one?

Read the article

Came away with "uh-huh" "yeah" "right"

See, we´ve already got a fierce warrior and ass-kicker who represents everything the Republican Party is supposed to be.

Who? Tell me who .. !!

Allen West

But he´s the wrong kind of black man so we needn´t bother with his ilk.

West is a true warrior. I sense a personality cult growing surrounding Cruz. Lots of drum-beating going on. He may be the latest bright, shiny bauble, Hispanic, "Saviour of the Party", and all that. But jeez, all the bobbysoxer swooning? Please. I´ll take West anyday.

I believe we conservatives need to keep West engaged, if he himself doesn´t do that.

It´s really pretty simple. Here´s the story:

"Juan Ramirez´ dream was to start his own concrete services. For years, he worked as a laborer and saved his money. When the time came that he had enough money to purchase his own truck, equipment, and had sufficient business lined up to hire two helpers, he discovered that he couldn´t make it after all. The permits, legal requirements, employee benefit mandates and built-in delays cost too much, and Juan missed his opportunity. Today, Juan is a laborer who no longer dreams."

My advice to Senator-elect Cruz is to keep your distance from northeastern senators.

"Drubbing"?

"Hispanics." "Big Business."

I still see way too much "let´s set policy in reaction to what the Left is doing."

FTA: "With private accounts, though, they might have $100,000 socked away by retirement, enough for them or their kids to start a small business, pay for college or buy a house."

And he still doesn´t get it. Republicans as a mass don´t get it. The American people DO get it. The common sense of the American people is developed over a lifetme of hard work during which they learn how difficult it is so save a dollar and how easy it is to see it disappear, on kids´ tuition, medical bills, bail for the brother-in-law. So when a Republican with a new "plan" tells them to go ahead, take that safety net of social security you paid into your entire life and risk it all in a single year on ..... WHAT? A new small business that typically fails during the first year? Then what? You can´t collect social security because you just blew it all on one spin of the wheel. So what do you do? Try to get your old job back, with nothing to show for 50 years of work? Starve?

No, when we hear the spiel about "private accounts" for social security, all the alarm bells go off and we all hear "scam." There´s money in this for somebody. Who is it? The Republican establishment´s banker friends? Probably. Wall Street? Almost assuredly.

I´m sorry, but I´m a conservative Republican and it is no great mystery why Americans vote for Obamas when Republicans keep coming up with this stuff. Almost as bad as school vouchers, where people who pay no property taxes and don´t work get to send their kids to our GOOD schools that we pay dearly for.

Sorry Ted but Republicans are not hostile to Hispanics and they are focused on upward mobility. How can anyone go upward if there are no jobs, big business is not a bad thing. You have been taken in by all the nastiness of the democrats if you think this is what is wrong with the Republican party.

Since we just emerged from a grueling, multi-year, billion-dollar Republican presidential primary and general-election exercise that blew up in our faces, you´d think prospective Republican presidential candidates for 2016 would have learned enough to at least get off to a better start than their 2012 predecessors.

Yes, it´s good to start early. Particularly for Conservatives like Ted Cruz, so that they can raise enough money and support to discourage Karl Rove and other moderates from entering the fray down the road, but they should have learned what to say and what not to say before they opened their candidacies, and mouths, in public.

So far in the early 2016 sweepstakes, Marco Rubio has begun to march into battle in Iowa only to fall into a ditch because he couldn´t help opining about what might have happened in the year 5773, the creation of the world, rather than in what´s happening now in America.

And now Ted Cruz couldn´t help himself from exhuming from its grave the politically toxic proposal of personal social-security savings accounts.

It´s going to be a long four years for the Republicans.

I´ve been searching the internet for the speech. Can´t find it. Daily Caller and Politico probably have the most complete quotations in full context. I´m not interested in thinking about future candidates, I am interested in every individual having the opportunity to succeed. With Cruz it is not talk, he has fought for these principles before the Supreme Court and won. Whenever a politician stops thinking individual and starts thinking groups of individuals, he goes astray. The Dems have gone far so far astray they are going in the wrong direction.

I don´t see that what he´s offering is a new formula at all. He seems to think Republicans should beat the dead horse of privatizing Social Security (hard sell in uncertain times) and talk really nice and upbeat about Mexico´s continuing northward flight into America.

Sometimes I´m not sure we all read the same article. I didn´t get that he was advocating for a group but telling us how to communicate the advantage and applicability (if that is a word) of conservatism to a broader range of voter. It would apply to Hispanics, women, young people and seniors. And you have to do it in words they understand before you can change the vocabulary on them. We need our own buzz words that say what we are rather than just saying we aren´t what liberals call us.

Ted Crus iz not eligible for the Presidency or Vice-Presidency, as he is not a Natural Born Citizen. His father is not a Native American.

The Constitution is clear, the Founders fully understood NBC, and none of that is trumped by: a. later judicial error [read: agenda activism]; or b. misunderstanding of the Constitution by present-day commentators.

#18: Somehow, the Rs utterly fail to explain [and maybe fail to understand?] that any tax assessed to a business simply becomes part of the price paid by individuals for the product or service. The "higher taxes on business" sacrament of the Dems falls 100% on consumers, yet so many people are evidently happy to ignore that.

Cruz just got here and already he is in charge.
We should talk up legal immigration. Didn´t Romney do so repeatedly?We should not talk so much about social security personal accounts or anything else concerning finance. We sound like accounts or con men, according to Cruz. We are talking over the heads of average voters. How can we convince anybody if we don´t talk about these things? Is it our fault if the media won´t report on what our people say? Is it our fault if voters are too stupid to understand or too lazy to try?
Let´s hear Cruz´s plan to cure that.

I got hundreds of requests from him for a contribution. For some reason, I was wary. I´m beginning to be glad I sent my money elsewhere even though he won and West and Romney lost.

It seems quite obvious that most who commented either did not read the article, have an aversion to Hispanics in general or have a one-note agenda that they keep banging away at every time a Cuban name is mentioned in the context of GOP policy-making. No wonder we keep losing. (In the interest of full disclosure, I think the recent election was actually stolen, but that might have been avoided with a stronger message and a lot less of the GOP elitist attitude.)

New technical problems with HealthCare.gov posed a roadblock Monday to people trying to beat the sign-up deadline. On Monday afternoon, a technical glitch was preventing people from filing new applications. A tech team, though, was brought in to resolve the issue. Earlier Monday, a series of error messages came up as the large volume of users stressed the system. According to HHS, more than 100,000 people were using the system at once as of noon. The increased traffic is good news for the administration, but the recurring website problems are not. The deadline to sign up for the president´s signature

The Obama administration wants to spend $400,000 on a camel sculpture for a new embassy building in Pakistan, according to a report Monday. BuzzFeed broke the news that the State Department has plans to commission the camel sculpture from John Baldessari, an American artist. The art is called, “Camel Contemplating Needle.” According to a government document posted by BuzzFeed, the sculpture is a “large 500lb fiberglass aluminum, stainless steel, acrylic and painted contemporary art piece.” “Public art which will be presented in the new embassy should reflect the values of a predominately Islamist country,” the document states.

When money managers set up in the U.A.E., they’re usually either investing in the region or trying to tap the Middle East’s large pools of capital for funds that look elsewhere. Ahmad Zuaiter, however, is doing something a little different: using Dubai as a geographically central base from which to invest in frontier markets globally. Mr. Zuaiter, who managed money for George Soros until 2011, has been working for more than a year on a new firm called Jadara Capital, based in the Dubai International Financial Centre. He’s now raising money for Jadara’s maiden fund, which will invest in stocks

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet."

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?
