One guy captured the attention of a nation and beyond, because he had the guts to stand up for his convictions while the rest of the GOP is surrendering like the French Army in WWII.<quoted text>
Amen. He'll do well in the primary and get wiped out in the general election when people with brains vote.
One lone Tea Party guy did that.
One guy gave hope to the millions of Republicans across America, and he gave a spark of leadership that we havent seen since the days of Ronald Reagan.
The only reason why anybody voted for GWB was because the Clinton/Gore years were so terrible, and we frankly got tired of Billy getting caught in a new sex scandal every other week. The world was laughing at us over it.
But GWB was never really the guy the Republicans wanted. He was just the only one we could get organized around.
The McCains and the Romneys and the Corkers and the McConnells only motivate us to stay home on election day. That is what I did back in 2008, when Obama was running against McCain.
I just stayed home and didnt vote.
Looking back, even after Obamacare and all, I still think I did the right thing. McCain might be the only guy I know that would have been worse for America than Obama.
(And Im a Republican)
The GOP of today is rudderless. It has no leaders. Its an army with no generals.
Only surrender monkeys.
That is why is is being attacked by both parties, but mostly the GOP. He is a threat to thier little BS status Quo.
He went Rogue on them, like Reagan did.
Ted Cruz can lead America to a new era of true greatness that Im sure none of the young liberals posting here can remember. That is because we havent truly been, or felt great, since Reagan left office.
Every President since Reagan could have been replaced with a cardboard cut out and placed in the chair behind the desk in the Oval Office, and we would have been far better off.
We even had good TV shows back in the 1980s.
(Magnum PI, Simon and Simon, A-Team, Remington Steele, Airwolf, and so on)
Now, people cant hardly afford TV cable, because nearly half the workforce is out of work.
Many millions more soon will be, due to Obamacare.
So, yeah. The GOP and thier corporate owned Fox News, and the old establishment elite in the GOP, dont want to see some idealistic guy come fom nowhere and take over.
And then go rogue on them, like Reagan did.
That is the last thing the GOP wants. Thats why they are attacking Ted Cruz so viciously and unfairly.
And thats why the masses of American conservatives will probably follow him.
The liberals will be getting pretty fed up with Obamacare by 2016 too.
Many of the worst parts of the law are being put off a year by the democrats, to get past the 2014 midterm elections. The dems know that people would be too upset to vote for them, if the Obamacare was fully implemented before the 2014 elections.
But by 2016, Obamacare will have made full landfall, and it will be as unwanted, as a turd floating in the punch bowl.
Expect many democrats to defect from the DNC then.
The Republicans are already defecting from the GOP.
It has all the making of a perfect political storm. All it needs is an eye to form around.
Ted Cruz could be that eye.
If this post is too long for you to read, its probably over your head anyway. Dont worry about it. Just go chant some Obama slogans and stick your head back in the sand.
Us Tea Party guys will take care of the politicking for you. It will be alright.
