Posted on 10/03/2013 7:06:09 PM PDT by Nachum
Ted Cruz was on with Glenn Beck this morning and made the following excellent point:
If they [Democrats] are right that what were doing is hopeless, is doomed to fail, which mind you theyve been telling us for months then why are they screaming so loudly? Why are they getting so personal? Why are they so filled with hate and fear? And its because the American people are mobilized, are passionate and energized and even worse, understand that Obamacare is hurting millions of Americans, and that has the Left terrified out of their minds.

I have noticed Obama yelling at the top of his lungs at a lot of speeches he has been giving lately
the flak is heaviest when you are over the target.
By the way, the *admission* from the Dems that they are losing will be when they drop their current “We Won’t Negotiate” slogan.
Watch for it.
I think Ted has it exactly right. If you’ve ever had an argument or discussion (although the PC term is “conversation”) with a progressive, if you use honest facts and logic on them they will become loud and angry after a while. A favorite of mine is “A just how is that working out now?”, since all progressives are talkers and wordsmiths but lack the biggest element for success .... working.

I love the way Cruz is just keeping his cool while his attackers are going insane.
Even Matt Fuller of Rollcall said on CSPAN that the minibill strategy was winning for us.
Today Harry Reid made his drones vote against funds for D.C. - and the cops who protected him and his drones.
And against funds for any little girls getting cancer treatment at the NIH.
He has it down pat.
Ted is the right stuff.
So did Hitler and Mussolini
I think Obamacare is a good give-up.
I am glad that won.
Now that is over though, fight tooth and nail, GOP.
Ted Cruz stay out front, and fight this now.
Oldie but goodie: Remember when the Democrats and their media tried to convince themselves that the Tea Party is dead?
Mark Twain “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”
Roberts, as well as a massive nuimber of Americans, probably thought that Obamacare was a lousy law and that the best decision was to let the American chips fall where they may ... as is happening now.
The woman that was protesting at the White House today and leter shot to death by DC police, might have been simply protesting Obamacare.
May she rest u peace.
“I love the way Cruz is just keeping his cool while his attackers are going insane.”
That infuriates them even more. It’s like laughing at a little kid doing a melt down.
I'm hoping this is wrong. If the Pubs surrender now forget winning the Senate in 2014 and maybe they lose the House. I know I will no longer contribute to any Pub candidate.
Maybe I'm not reading this the right way. Why do you think the govt should be in charge of your healthcare?
They’ve had few more of those collective quick-brain washing attempts.
One goes back to 2004 where they tried the Michael Moore “What terrorism?” BS. That one lasted about two weeks. Really..I had a few lib in-laws try to repeat that garbage. They didn’t have a problem with a little terrorism every now and then (because Israel tolerates theirs, according to them) but they sure did have a problem with someone owning a gun.
Then another—they tried to convince themselves that Tea Party people didn’t know what Communism really is. That was a hoot, and didn’t last long, it was fun watching them try to get intricate with the differences between Fascism,Communism and Socialism.
I had a liberal ask me what Communism is (on youtube I think) and I caught him using the straight definition from Dictionary.com. Even though what I said was the same exact thing but in my own words. I made sure to let him know he was busted, didn’t get anymore replies after that.
Of course, I’m not sure how much the MSM had to do with the above examples but I sure did see the ground swell on the internet and among those I know.
The SCOTUS also ruled that slavery was legal. It didn't make it right.The Republican Party killed slavery in this country and if they are smart enough to stick together they will kill obamacare. If nothing else it is a hill worth dying on.
You’re reading correctly.
However that wasn’t my main point.
That mess has now been passed, the GOP needs to double-down for real.
This is it.
You could find (even if reluctant) plenty of people who wanted the GOP to stand for something, but the GOP didn’t.
So Obamacare won out.
That’s ok with me. But now the GOP needs to negotiate hard.
Now take no prisoners.
I believe some of that mobil passion hit the WH gates this afternoon
and they haven’t even started garnishing wages for their bs yet
yea.... that’ll be greaaaat. that’s when they’ll really get to see ‘mobile passion’
I know a person who came to the US from a communist country. He will tell you just how horrible it was. But he votes lock step with socialist democrats. And will argue with you that it’s the republicans who are communists. He’s living proof the liberals are brain damaged.
Actually Obamacare originated in the Senate and they cannot legally write any bill that requires funding, only the House can.
I was stuck in traffic today listening to Medved wailing about what a mistake the “shutdown” is. He’s off here, way off base. Medved cited Congressional approval ratings, but those ratings are garbage since voters like their individual legislators, just not Congress. Obama’s ratings are about Obama, not the institution of POTUS.
Keep in mind that the House was designed to be the most sensitive to the people, the Senate and President, the least. The GOP controls the House because people feared Obamacare and Democrat overreach.
The proof of this is Obama’s wasted effort on gun control. He just doesn’t get it and Harry Reid went along. Obama proved himself the wimp on sequestration and is repeating the error here with the “shutdown”. He can’t learn.
Despite losing the sequestration fight because of intentionally targeting the most harmful cuts, he’s using the same mean spirited tactics today. You can’t be a statesman and a Scrooge. He looks petty and weak, worse the people who advise him look gauzy, light-weight and vindictive. They’ve lost the moral high ground.
If I were an Obama advisor I’d encourage him to be conciliatory, strong and magnanimous. “Folks, we’re fighting to keep these critical services open, despite the rancorous and vengeful TEA Party radicals. We’ll keep the checks flowing and I have asked all government employees to continue to work. Not one of them deserve the title ‘nonessential’. They keep our water and food safe, protect our borders, ports and transportation services, and many more things mostly invisible, but critical to the American public. I salute the job they do and personally guarantee each of them will be paid in full for a job well done.”
Perhaps someone has been suggesting that, but it isn’t in Obama to be conciliatory. He’s a classic faker, somebody Richard J. Daley (Daley the 1st) would have recognized and despised. Obama isn’t really tough and statesmanlike and it shows in his shadow boxing manner. He’s pretending to be something he knows nothing about.
The GOP is never going to have the MSM carry water for our cause, but via twitter, emails and postings the word will get out. The GOP has compromised and has fulfilled its mission in the House to be sensitive to the people’s needs.
All Boehner need do late Sunday night is pass a bill that funds the government in a CR and extends to every individual the very same exemption Pres. Obama and the Democrats approved for themselves and Big Business. The “shutdown” will be nearly a week old. Boehner can check mate them again and again.
It’s a win. Obama and the Democrats main constituency is government. It’s why they’re squealing so loudly.
I think you are kind of right. But I don’t really think that Obama cared whether he won on any of the issues he has screwed us all with- at least not right away.
The communists want to wear us all down. They want us to give up. The actually want anarchy- which in their preverted minds would give them absolute control.
Don’t over think this. They will never stop on any of these issues. They will beat them all like a drum forever.
Thought they were acting the way they are acting simply because they are scumbags. But yes, they could have some type of conspiracy going on. The old miss-direct. /sarc
He is right on —
The pig that gets struck is the one that squeals.
I also like what they are doing passing small funding bills for various depts.
This fight is not just about obamacare, although that is the principal cause. It has morphed into a fight about tyranny vs republican govt. obama keeps saying just do what I tell ya. If the House gives in they might as well just go home because they can only do what obama tells them. Now is the time to stand strong.
Roberts found Obamacare to be a TAX which the admin never EVER presented in the whole process. We were blind sided and lied to..
When a commie homo yells in the wilderness does it make noise ? or can anyone hear him ?
The Constitution sets limits on what the government can do. Just because the Congress and president sign a bill doesn’t make it Constitutional. For example, they just wacked DOMA, which was passed by a Congress and signed by a President. A bi-partisan one, too. They also wacked parts of Obamacare to give states opt outs. That was passed by Congress and signed by the president.
You keep saying the GOP never gave any alternatives to Obamacare, and that simply isn’t true. Go back and read the transcripts of Paul Ryan and others at the health care summit sideshow that Obama put on. They offered a variety of things to add to the bill, and all were rebuffed.
The SCOTUS ruled that slaves were property and must be returned to their owners. They were wrong and the Republicans came to power and ended slavery.
The SCOTUS ruled obamacare was legal and the Tea Party, that was born when the law was passed, gained in membership. If the Pubs don't fight to the death to end obamacare (the current crisis is just one fight in that battle) then the Tea Party will have to split from the Pubs and do it.
“If I were to criticize one thing about Palin endorsements, it is that she too often goes with the female even when there are better candidates in the race. More often than not she gets it right, but she does place a very high value on supporting female candidates.”
That is an amazing observation.
I had gone to your inbox just to figure out what I was to say to you.
And found that, about 4 down.
Now I am completely distracted from my original mission.
I support Palin. I supported Palin. I think she is perhaps my #1 pick right now, even with Ted Cruz grabbing all the headlines at the moment.
But that statement you made there, is a huge, and a true statement.
The administration even argued court that it was NOT a tax.
My understanding is that the three branches of government are all necessary in fully vetting a law. They all three play a part in the check and balance process. It is the JOB of SCOTUS to determine if a law, duly passed though it might be, is Constitutional when brought before them as a suit. Justice Roberts and the other cohorts on his side failed to do their job as defined by the Constitution. I saw his interpretation as a cowardly way to appease the executive branch rather than “balance” it.
The left relies on GOP surrendering without a fight. The last thing they want to be stuck defending is the very unpopular Obamacare. We’ve seen their hysterics. They aren’t winning this debate. The GOP has problems because of its squish caucus. If the GOP were united in the defense of liberty and the defense of jobs and the economy the Democrats wouldn’t have any place to hide. Instead we still have the GOP Democrat lifeguard teams in action failing to realize that the time for argument over tactics is over. The shutdown has occurred there is one choice now and that is to win and that takes unity.
The last we in the grass roots want to be stuck doing is fighting with those who should be with us but Rove, King and others are proving themselves to be just hard line progressive Republicans. They don’t see Obamacare as a threat but an opportunity for power and that is why we see what we see. Honestly we should’ve seen this coming under the Bush admin.
Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution states ... "The Congress shall have Power ...To ... provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States," and ... "To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested in this Constitution in the Government of the United States or in any Department or Officer thereof."
Cruz is the smartest man in D.C. There is a wide chasm before you get to the next smartest.
?re you saying the general welfare clause allows this (the ACA)? There was some ruling from the justices of the supremes that basically ruled that idea out IIRC.
There is absolutely nothing in that quote from Article I that you just cited that gives the federal government the power to regulate individuals’ healthcare, nor to force them to pay for health insurance. Go back and read the 10th Amendment, then read Article I again, and tell me where the fed gets all of this magical power. Limitation of the federal government by granting only specifically enumerated powers was THE WHOLE POINT of the US Constitution.
Damned straight. McCain and Lindsey would have NEVER gone for these strategies. Cruz is a fighter, not a yellow belly.
I swear, he will have to watch his back from all sides... the GOPe and the Dems.
I wonder what will happen when is family starts getting threatened.
I hope he doesn’t bow out like most of our hopefuls over the last decade or so.
I want to see him POTUS!
