How Ted Cruz Had Me
But Then Lost Me

American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/26/2013 6:11:27 AM

Last February, after John McCain rescued President Obama’s nomination of Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense I wrote: As it stands, Republicans lack the zeal necessary to carry out the function of a loyal opposition. If Republicans had a caucus full of Ted Cruzs that might not be the case. So it is with this sentiment in mind that I looked forward to Senator Cruz’s filibuster (or, depending on your point of view, really long speech) on defunding Obamacare. Unlike Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster six months ago on the phony issue of the U.S. government dropping drones on its citizens, Obamacare is

Dumb article. Some people can disregard anything anyone has to say if they even mention Hitler. Sometimes the analogies are spot on. Appeasement by the RINO´s is very Chamberlain-like.

FTA: "So Ted Cruz had me. But then he lost me once he invoked the Nazis."

Some people want to make "Nazi" another "N-word." Cruz´s reference to Nazi Germany was entirely appropriate.

Get over it.

Here is Goldstein´s bio from the Spectator, cutesied up to make it more palatable?

Aaron Goldstein began his political life as a socialist. But following the attacks of September 11, 2001, he gradually embraced the wisdom of conservatism. He uses his poetic license (which has been suspended on numerous occasions) to write about politics, music, clam chowder and anything else he darn well pleases. Born in Canada, Aaron has lived in Boston for over a decade.

And we are supposed to care whether Ted Cruz "has" him or not?

What I am curious about regarding the filibuster, also known as long speech, is why did he continue the recitation of Green Eggs & Ham after the change? - after the green eggs & ham have been accepted and rejoiced in? Without the latter half, it would have been a superb statement on Obamacare. With it, the symbolism turns into a prophecy of acceptance and success. Did he not get that? If so, what does that say about his state of awareness and, frankly, his intellect?

When I heard the performance, that did occur to me but I put it aside because of the initial brilliance. In retrospect, I can´t put it aside. And it´s not the first time I´ve noticed a curious flaw in his thinking - that was regarding foreign affairs. So, as they say on Shark Tank - "I´m out."

It´s very sad there are so few people old enough to actually remember the history of World War II and the Cold War so that Ted Cruz can get away with being all flash and no intellect. I thought Cruz was going to be one of our bright stars. I´m so disappointed.

Good Grief. Using the allusion that the Rinos in Washington are similar to Chamberlain in their desire to "get along" with people who have and do regularly and openly call their Republican opponents Nazis, isn´t close to the same thing. Our nation faces cultural and social genocide no less dangerous, using mild hyperbole as an excuse to nitpick and attack one of the few Republicans who have consistently stood up and opposed this radical attempt to rewrite the basic code of our Nation´s existence is just as rediculous if not more so.

I wonder if Goldstein complained about Joe Biden when he told Perky Katie that FDR would have gotten on television in the early 1930´s to rally the public about the economy. Katie sucked it up and never blinked..smirked..chuckled. Of course she is one of the enlightened who thinks there are a thousand countries in the world and they speak Austrian in Austria and pronounce corpsman "corpse-man".

Well at least we know the Chamberlain reference isn´t how Ted Cruz lost his contingent of l-dot detractors...IIRC it was around the time he got the backing of Sarah Palin.

Those of us who were saddened at the sniping at Sarah by posters who claimed to be conservative & hoped for a conservative fighter who might lack some of the things they said they didn´t like about Sarah see that Ted Cruz, without a voice/accent that grate on nerves, without a public university education, without an unwed mother for a daughter, no reality show exposure, no resignation of a governmental office, still manages to draw their ire. We are left to wonder what it is the 2 of them have in common that is so objectionable. I certainly hope it´s not prejudice against Evangelical Christians, but I have to wonder.

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous. You meet a lot of

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
