Giving Cruz His Due

Liberals are passionate in their scorn for him — which tells you how worried they are.
By John Fund

A spat has broken out over whether the media demonstrated liberal bias in their coverage of Senator Ted Cruz’s marathon anti-Obamacare speech. Conservatives are contrasting the heckling and slurs leveled against Cruz with the overwhelmingly positive reaction won by his fellow Texan Wendy Davis for her ultimately unsuccessful filibuster of a bill in the Texas state senate restricting abortions performed after 20 weeks.

Liberals who reject the bias charge make two main points. First, they say, the most negative commentary against Cruz came from opinion writers, not news reporters. Second, they add, Davis’s 13-hour physically grueling feat constituted a genuine filibuster while Cruz’s semi-orchestrated effort wasn’t a bona fide attempt to derail Obamacare....

Ted Cruz's talkathon was based on facts, while teaching history. The common sense approach he took was easily understood by even the most illiterate people.

On the otherhand, Wendy's approach was to the illiterate people, and should have been titled, "Fifty Ways to Kill Your Babies", a spinoff from Paul Simon's song.

It doesn't matter.

Davis lost and Cruz is going to lose.  Results matter in life, in business, in politics.  Either do, or don't.  "Trying" without a path to success is a waste of time.

I think Cruz's ultimate goal is a bit more long term than you can even begin to understand.

Of course.  I'm too stupid to see what you and Cruz see clearly. 

You are the mirror image of an Obama groupie.

Why do you feel the need to personally attack Lipstick? You take away from a good debate by doing that.

Ask LOH.  She started it.

Calling someone stupid is not debating.

Big We Told You So moment. The senate just voted 54-44 to remove the language to defund the ACA. If Cloture didn't pass, the threshold to remove ACA would have been 60 votes and not pass.

Cruz was right and we told you so. (not directed at anyone in particular)

Of course not, AbaraXas. Why would anyone think otherwise?
