"Well ya know, It is remarkable in the 13 months I've been in the Senate, it has become apparent to me the single thing that Republican politicians hate, and fear the most, and that is when they are forced to tell the truth." Senator Cruz
Rules for Radicals
Rule 4 “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
Good Lord Senator Cruz! Are you saying politicians spin the truth? Get out.
Politicians are dishonest to the LIVs and the rats? What is this world coming to?
According to Senator Cruz there is only one solitary thing Republican politicians hate the most. Only one, count them (1) thing they fear the most. All the other stuff they don't hate and fear the most. The number one thing that REPUBLICAN politicians hate and fear is some freshmen Senator making them go on record when it doesn't accomplish anything positive for the party or the American people.
Are conservatives so dense they don't know who the GOPe is? Did we need one more vote to finally cement once and for all who we are? OK here it is again...McConnell, Cornyn, Barrasso, Collins, Corker, Flake, Hatch, Johanns, Kirk, McCain, Murkowski, and Thune. But that was all we could come up with to shutdown Cruz immediately. They shutdown Cruz's glory so now the only people who know about it are the hardcore political junkies.
Picture a football team trying to win the big game. Our GOP team has too many men on the field but the refs haven't spotted the error. Not only would Tight End Cruz would be the player telling the ref, he'd be the one who is tackling Quarterback McConnell. How long before the fans leave the stands?
When one Senator decides he is running the show it pisses off a lot of powerful GOPe. Cruz is damaging the party. Conservatives better watch his back, along with the professional fundraising arms of an ever more exclusive and discredited extreme right wing. I've read many predictions that the failure of Obamacare could spell the end of liberalism and the idea that government can take care of us is dead. I think it's more likely that this is the moment when many people recognize the futility in demanding quick fixes, perfect candidates, and stop calling themselves Tea Partiers.
You can not lead the American people where they don't want to go
If Cruz had gotten his way in Oct nobody would be suffering under Obamacare and they would have no idea how dumb an idea it was. They would only know Republicans took away their free healthcare and they would replace Republicans with rats who would restore their free healthcare only worse and harder to reverse.
Cruz has declared war on the GOPe which just gets bigger for every Rubio or Cornyn conservatives cast away. Bring it.
