Posted on 09/27/2013 11:41:15 AM PDT by KennyEdited on 09/29/2013 5:43:09 PM PDT by Sidebar Moderator. [history]
Ted Cruz has sparked a Republican civil war. He has done the bidding of the GOP fringe, in a self-aggrandizing crusade. And while he has enhanced his own position in the conservative fantasyland he seeks to rule, the practical effect of his quixotic campaign to defund Obamacare has been to elevate the president and jeopardize the 2014 elections for his own party.

Stuff it Stephen. Expect your RINO buddies to be looking for new employment over the next 3 election cycles.
Was never that fond of Steven Hayes anyway but now....he can go f&*k himself.
We don’t want Deathcare and we voted in a Republican House to stop it. What’s so hard to understand?
Did you read past the 1st Paragraph?
Did anyone read past the first paragraph? He said that he supported Cruz, Lee, and the others. The first paragraph is the conventional wisdom of Washington, not the author’s opinion.
My blood was beyond boiling when I read the 1st sentence and then . . . I read on.
My blood is still way over 212° after today’s vote and it taken every bit of restraint to be civil when talking with my elected officials (Isakson & Chambliss) office and expressing my thoughts on their traitorous votes in favor of Zero Care.
Did you hear him pan Sen Cruz on the Fox Panel?
You didn’t read far enough. He is lauding Cruz. He was just giving the GOPe view first.
Read a little further. He is on Cruz’s side.
Don’t believe he was quite so supportive leading up to the vote.
No, it is not the "fringe."
It is what is left of the actual republican party.
The rest of the GOP is nothing more than the butt kissing collaborator brigade that is hiding behind a phony "R."
Let the PRIMARIES begin.
Cruz rocks, and we need thousands more just like him.
He actually makes a good point (I think this is what he’s saying, or at least leading people into) ... there’s a heightened awarenes of Obamacare. RINOs aside, people now associate the effort to stop it with Republicans. Even if in being told that those Republicans are extremists.
The Dems acknowlege that it has flaws. Major ones. Ones that will be highlighted more and more as it’s rolled out. Ones that won’t be fixed because there won’t be the votes to do so. So when people start getting screwed by it, they’ll know that it was the work of the Dems that the GOP valiantly opposed.
Could be a game changer not only for repealing Obsmacare but also awakening the public to the slow but accelerating slide into socialism being executed by the Democrats.
These people tell themselves what they want to be true.
LOL. Good question. You beat me to it. Apparently Freepers love to post a lot more than they like to read.
I'm glad Hayes is on our side on this one. He's basically a good guy. One of the few.
He says that now, but based on reports here (I currently don’t get Fox) he wasn’t quite so supportive in the run up to the vote.
