Cruz-McCain Feud About
More than the Budget

PJ Media, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/26/2013 5:06:22 AM

Amidst the Republican cheer about scandals afflicting the Obama administration and Democrats, there is a far more interesting sideshow going on in Washington — one that threatens to tear the GOP apart right at the time they need to be unified in order to keep the House and take control of the Senate next year. It’s the ongoing, destructive feud between two Senators representing different factions of the Republican Senate. John McCain representing the GOP establishment and Ted Cruz, darling of the Tea Party nationwide, have been going at it all week on the Senate floor.

You gotta love Cruz standing up to the "old bull" McCain,who thinks he owns the senate. Under McCain´s rules,Cruz shouldn´t be allowed to speak his mind for another 10 years or so.

McCain thinks people like Cruz and Paul give senate republicans a bad name,when it´s really the establishment,deal cutter ones that are the problem.

McCain would gladly hand Obama everything he wants in the immigration bill.Cruz has this wild idea that the rule of law means something.

Unlike Rubio, Cruz refuses to roll over to the elite. Rubio fell into the trap of the old guys, ´play along with us and you go far and we´ll help you with your immigration agenda´. He knew what he was doing, or else he´s not as smart as we thought.

Cruz is an individual. You become a Tea Party favorite for your actions, not your GOP status. I´m Tea, not Republican. The Tea Party is not the Republican Party.

Interesting that Republican elites just can´t stand a young man dedicated to the rule of law with the ability to articulate his position clearly and concisely. Mr Cruz is the establishment´s biggest nightmare and I love it. We have reached across the aisle and compromised ourselves into an Obamaworld. It is time for men like Cruz who care for this country more than they do for their ownpolitical ambition to step forward and LEAD. The country is starved for a pro-American, small government, common sense warrior who will not back down. Defeat the fossils in the entrenched establishment and you have a real chance of saving this country and with it the undying support of a grateful nation.

Terrible essay. McCain is a moderate liberal, a RINO. If his side "wins" the Republican party should just disband. They´d be Democrat lite and thus worthless. And quoting the WaPo about anything is pathetic. It´s a far left, failing paper that has its Obama presidential knee-pads on at all times.

Places that employ Rick Moran and assign him plum topics to abuse are doing their share to keep democrats in power. Sort of the poor man´s Karl Rove, Moran describes Tea Party supporters as anti-science Luddites with dirty fingernails. If he came to my neighborhood on the East side of Manhattan, he´d notice many nail salons and few dirty fingernails. Those who provide Mr. Moran a megaphone surely know the only hope for this country is to stop and reverse what´s going on now. John McCain´s best efforts gave this once great country 8 years of radical left anarchy and $19 billion in regulations in 2012 against taxpayers suffering terribly in a part time economy in endless depression with worse ahead. Just because John McCain didn´t retire as he should have doesn´t mean he gets to do what he wants. Long live Ted Cruz. He´s this country´s only hope. I couldn´t care less about so-called GOP who destroyed this country, are demonstrably fine with ObamaCare, and just want us to shut up. We gave the House everything they needed in Nov. 2010 and they told us to shut up and sit down. Maybe the two party system can come back to life in the Senate. Mr. Moran hasn´t dreamed of doing a tiny fraction of what Ted Cruz has already accomplished at age 42 v overwhelming odds. Moran isn´t fit to critique Senator Cruz or his lowest staff member.

McCain has been through enough earthquakes, he should realize he is on shaky ground. Graham may not realize it but the ground in SC is vibrating, ready to take him down.
Ted Kruz is the "Real Deal" and the "Old Bulls" should recognize there is strong competition and it is time to go to pasture or at least sit in the corner.

We elected Senator Cruz to do what he is doing in DC. We could have elected the establishment´s candidate. That candidate had more ads, more endorsements, better name recognition, and more money than Senator Cruz. Senator Cruz won.

The republican establishment has forgotten why they are in DC. The republican establishment has intentionally lost the last two presidential elections and now we have someone that HATES the USA in our White House. It is past time to kick those establishment fools out of our Congress.

Moran... Moron... I´m not seeing too much difference.

Cruz does not bow down to McCain like others. McCain was a POW. So were many others who have not used that fact to gain fame. He has not done anything for Republicans. He acts like a Democrat who pretends to be a Republican: a RINO. Go, Cruz, Go!

Cruz may not curtsy to the old bulls, but its time to realize that the "old bulls" have lost their way and are corrupt, big government, tax raisers, only a fraction of a step away from socialists themselves.

Cruz and company are attempting to bring the Republican party out of the drunken big government bar they have been getting sloshed in and put them back on the straight and narrow.

What they are trying to do is bring back some conviction to principle instead of thinking they can manage big government better. Bigger government is not the solution.

More spending is not the solution. Even with more money than last year, government hacks like the Prez act like a very small "sequestration" is about to cause the entire government to fold, when they have more money because of base-line budgeting.

I´m with Cruz!

I have two points to make:

1) It is almost always a mistake for one Republican congressman to call one or more Republicans " Wacko Birds".
2) There are only two major parties: Republican and Democrat. Only a major party has a chance of winning Congressional or presidential elections.

If you don´t vote for the major party whose candidate most nearly represents your views, the other party will win. Only someone who is either evil or idiotic would suggest otherwise. Eschew ankle biting. Vote Republican. Don´t make me have to tell you this again.

Well said, #19. It was impossible for McCain in 2008, Romney in 2012 and will be so for our nominee in 2016 to "unify the party", when so many on our side are clinging to the doorframes to avoid having to enter that room.
Voting for our nominee, even if that person isn´t your favorite, should be a given when the opposition is nominating a candidate who intends to destroy the nation.

For form´s sake, a senior GOP senator really should not call other senators of the same party a wacko bird. This from a man who did not have enough savvy to preview the optics to be televised during his own 2008 GOP presidential nomination acceptance speech. When he was talking about Walter Reed Medical Center, the nation was looking at a photo of a school by that name. The nominee lost his concentration, the media collapsed in giggles, gave a wink to the Donks and the rest is history.

I don´t vote for the party I vote for whoever represents my view or I don´t vote.

Don´t give me the lessor of two evils crap it went out the door with Dole, Bush, McCain etc.

I did vote Romney and held my nose as an exception because I knew what was lurking on the other side.

But not no more. Not again. Its over and moochers are in control. Cruz and Paul are good men I will vote them. Never will I vote Rubio.

Perhaps our knowing establishmentarians, rather than trying to coopt the salon and massage the language of party unity should consider that their vocation has left the republican party in shambles, and that they should pursue other more productive endeavors than chastising those who disagree with them.
This is your mess, perhaps you can sit in the back and keep silent while somebody else drives.

A video in which an Egyptian woman accuses President Barack Obama of interfering in Egyptian politics has gone so viral in the Middle East, it has inspired knockoffs, photoshopped spoofs and even T-shirts. Normally, I post partial transcripts with videos, but not this time; didn’t want to steal this angry woman’s thunder.

It seems a long time ago, that dreadful December night in 1988 when fire and aeroplane debris rained down on the Scottish village of Lockerbie. A generation of Britons has been born unaware of the sense of foreboding we all felt that night, when news broke that a civilian passenger flight had been blown up in mid-air, killing 270 people, by a terrorist bomb concealed in a radio cassette player. It is easy to see why a younger generation finds it hard to understand that we need to be wary of Iran and its nuclear ambitions. But, back in 1988, few

President Barack Obama would veto a GOP-drafted bill that would allow legislators to take agency officials to court if they don’t enforce laws, according to a White House statement. The GOP is pushing the bill through the House because Obama has repeatedly declined to enforce laws he doesn’t like, say GOP legislators. “President Obama has refused to enforce those parts of our nation’s immigration laws that are not to his political liking, has waived portions of our welfare laws, has stretched our environmental laws to accommodate his policy objectives, and has waived testing accountability provisions required under the ‘No Child Left Behind’

Field Museum research assistant Josh Engel has spent a couple days this week along the lakefront performing the grim task of collecting dead waterfowl. They haven’t been difficult to find. Engel and his Field Museum colleagues collected 30 of the birds that had died close to shore, most of them red-breasted merganser and white-winged scoter ducks. Some were floating and others were sealed in ice; all of them were emaciated. “It’s sort of hard to go out and see — you can practically see them dying,” said Engel, who is also an ornithologist.

Big Tents and Ideological Purity

The United States, like almost all English-speaking countries, has a two-party political system. That means we have big-tent parties, with a variety of competing political strains under each of the two tents. In other countries, such as Italy and Israel, they have small-tent parties, far more ideologically unified and, indeed, often based on a single political idea. (Snip)The recent CPAC conference certainly displayed a variety of political opinions under the Republican tent, from Rick Perry’s clarion call to unleash the genius of American enterprise, to Chris Christie’s moderate approach, to Rick Santorum’s down-the-line social conservatism, to Rand Paul’s libertarian concern

On economic policy, President Obama has consistently and thoroughly followed just the opposite of everything Reagan did. And that is why he has consistently and thoroughly gotten the opposite of Reagan’s results. Reagan slashed tax rates, with the top income tax rate reduced from 70% when he entered office to 28% when he left. (Federal tax revenues doubled during the 1980s.) Early in his first year, Reagan led Congress to cut federal spending by nearly 5%. Early in his first year, Obama led Congress to enact nearly $1 trillion in utterly wasted “stimulus” spending. Reagan deregulated, Obama overregulated. Reagan backed

House Republicans have a worthy suggestion to protect Ukraine and increase the West’s leverage there: Deregulate American energy production and encourage oil and gas exports. The Department of Energy has been reluctant and slow to approve permits for shipping natural gas overseas, for instance, which the market demands from the U.S. for the first time. Crude-oil exports remain illegal. Energy production on federally owned lands has been dropping. A plan to address all of these issues and more can’t be expected to shift the balance of power in Eurasia — but its economic benefits should have compelled us to start

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager.

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.

One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
