Don’t be a jerk, Sen. Cruz.
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/30/2013 6:58:17 PM

It is a shopworn technique of hard-line conservatives to declare themselves men and women of principle in contrast to those other Republicans — the ones, you know, who pass legislation and try to represent their constituents. It is both self-serving (presuming principles are of no matter to opponents) and lazy in that it is always easy to say no, ridicule compromise and remain pristine rather than trying to improve legislation or introduce an alternative. I’m sorry to say Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is too often falling into the reflexive habit of voting no

Comments:
Wow. So our "conservative" at WaPO is jumping on the bandwagon with Joe Scarborough in attacking the honorable Sen. Cruz. How shameful.

Cruz is doing such a good job that he is being targeted for elimination by the
WaPo´s bosses... they probably told Rubin to write this or else walk the plank jobwise.

You can tell who is really good...
The Media Ho´s hate real conservatives.
And the Media Ho´s love losers like McCain and Rubio, who destroy the GOP from within.

Rubin kept her paycheck by selling out to her WaPo Media Ho bosses.
No integrity at her DC Urinal...
Just backstabbing for the great and rising Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz.

Cruz threatens their corrupt world.
Attaboy!!

Senator Cruz is not one of my Senators so I did not know much about him before his election. What I have learned is that his campaign promised he would be a jerk if elected. He (unlike most) is keeping his promise. I for one would like to hear more about the behind the scenes deal making done by those we consider on our side. The RINO´s are in a box where he is concerned, they can not exclude him and he will call them out. BTW if Texas gets tired of his representation we will welcome him in Georgia.

When you c**k the trigger you should aim the gun down range. In this case Jennifer you aimed at your head and hit the mark. We are sick of RINOs saying one thing and doing something opposite. Sorta like Rubio being a conservative then being point man for Schumer´s immigration bill. Go Sen Cruz, out here in America we want some shaking in the house. As for MS. Rubin the HUFFPO may have a opening.

No #9, she does NOT have a point - and in fact invited, and guaranteed, that many conservatives would not even read her tripe with her intentionally provacative header. She is a lib, who has to pretend to be somewhat conservative to keep her gig. She´s a discgrace, and a creature of Washington. Perhaps you are too.

I am always suspicious of any bill that has to be passed ASAP as is and many were kept out of the loop in the crafting of the bill. I am also suspicious of any bill that is nearly 900 pages long. I also don´t believe in the seniority system, everyone is elected the same way, going along with a bad bill just to be popular among colleagues isn´t a definition of good governance. The gang of 8 has had some nasty things to say about those who oppose this bill as well, do they get a pass?

His questioning of Dianne Feinstein was spot on, not condescending, the woman is constantly condescending to others and was attempting to avoid the question he asked in the first place. That Jenny would try and defend her and criticize Cruz for it is ridiculous for anyone who holds themselves out as a conservative.

Rubin writes: "Obstruction is easy; governance is hard. And if the answer is that only hackneyed gestures (e.g. push for repealing Obamacare with a Dem Senate majority, but offer no alternative) that interest him, then the people of Texas are being shortchanged."

My .02: In 2012 the GOP/Romney platform was that the President´s policies were destroying America. The President is re-elected and now somehow his policies are less harmful? ObamaCare is a disaster and I have no faith in the GOP fighting for its repeal. Senator Cruz is right to shame Republicans who have abandoned the platform upon which they ran.

I have to ask, Ms. Rubin, why those other Republicans — the ones, you know, who pass legislation and try to represent their constituents - are complaining that their constituents - the ones, you know, that they are trying to represent - are yelling at them to stand on principle. It sounds like maybe their constituents don´t feel they are being represented the way they should be.

As for your concerns over Senator Cruz, for starters, hopefully he will not have to worry about some of these ´colleagues´ after the next couple of elections. Second, as a conservative I´m sure he understands that humility and grace are often ´shackle words´ used to try to constrain and muzzle those who sometimes have to raise a little ruckus in support of their principles. He does not lack these qualities, he just refuses to be bound by them. Third, for the author of an article like this to grouse that Senator Cruz is ´whiny´ is the paradigm of surrealism.

Perhaps it is his colleagues who need to apologize to their constituents for betraying their confidence.

Finally I have to wonder if you considered it a ´hackneyed gesture´ when the House, in the face of a Democrat majority, refused to vote for Obamacare, even though they knew they could not prevent it from passing. See, most of us, Ms. Rubin, appreciated that gesture.

No. This is just plain throw-the-stink-bomb by Jen.

Senator Cruz gets yelled at by some of his colleagues, who are obviously prime examples of "grace and humility", and Jennifer tells Senator Cruz not to be a jerk.

Then, when he says, "I don’t even bother to argue with them. I just sort of let them yell. . .", she lectures him about lacking grace, humility and manners(using his excellent questioning of Sen. Feinstein as an example of bad manners!)and pretends to think he is whining about being yelled at.

She has no valid arguments at all. What a shame that Senator Cruz, Paul, and Lee are getting yelled at by "those other Republicans" because they don´t like being told by their own constituents to stand on principle because of the example of these three senators! That is very telling. Sounds like their constituents would like to see a bit of "purity" in them. You can work with people with whom you disagree without giving up your principles.

Senator Cruz is no jerk. Jennifer is the jerk, and a sneaky little jerk at that, for trying to drive a wedge in the support of Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in the minds of her readers. There will be times when some of us may disagree with both Paul and Cruz. Sounds like Jennifer is hoping we throw one or the other of them overboard, or Paul will turn on Cruz, thereby strengthening her favorite examples of "grace and humility".

How ironic that some of the best examples of how to be a jerk are the ones who see themselves as most qualified to lecture others on not being jerks.

Some folks equate "passing legislation" with "getting things done" for - not to - our country. For those who think Cruz is being an obstructionist for the sake of obstruction, please name your top ten public laws from the current Congress or the previous Congress that advances conservative principles.

In Cruz´s home state, the legislature meets only once every two years, unless summoned by the governor for a special session. There is no rush to pass legislation for its own sake and certainly no rush to pass legislation that restricts hard won freedoms or deals away sovereignty like a soiled hanky. Sometimes the preferable alternative to bad legislation is nothing. That appears to be the case with the very progressive immigration - or pick the number to the nearest ten million instant democrats - bill.

Hey Jen, a ´jerk´ would be someone who passionately held your Berkley mindset for far too long. Sit down, take a breath and understand that just because you have a token column in a ´news´paper, doesn´t mean you have the history or capacity to school someone like Cruz. Kinda snarky, but by all means pontificate on everything.

I love Cruz....he´s moved into my top spot for ´16, but Rubin is correct that it may prove to be unproductive to loudly call out his fellow senators.

A better tact would be; self-deprecate himself as an aggressive newbee in the Senate, but one that hopes he can bring his colleagues along. Smile.

If the ´conservatives´ in this country are more concerned about being polite and knowing your place (that´s basically what she´s telling Cruz) than the future of the United State, then Texas needs out. Not hyperbole, not mindless exaggeration - if we are going down, at least let it be with a fight. And it appears that most of the rest of this country has given up already. And NO, you ditz, you do NOT have to propose competing legislation to say ´what you are doing is WRONG!´ Dingbat.

Rubin is the new Kathleen Parker. The WaPo turns all into the same type of ´token repub´..ones that criticize conservatives. It takes forever for some people to realize that no moderate/liberal will ever compromise with a conservative..it always must be the other way around. Our nation does not need any more legislation. It needs to scrap half the legislation it already has. We have in place means to handle most of our problems. All new laws are made to give special rights to Dem voters. Period. Rubio is a disappointment. He knows Florida tho..and it is growing more liberal. I just wish SC would end the reign of McCains stooge, Graham. Please.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

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.

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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

RAW VIDEO: Sen. Jeff Sessions sits for interview with WSFA 12 News Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and arguably the leading intellectual force against amnesty in Congress, is coming out hard against a proposal backed by Majority Leader Eric Cantor to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers who enlist in the military. “We are now in a period of very large troop reductions. The last thing this nation should be doing is to provide those few slots to persons who illegally entered the United States or who overstayed their visas while denying young Americans the

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. 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

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

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)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

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

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
