What do you expect from the left? They're still blaming Reagan for Oblahblah's depression.

By 'crazy' and 'ruin' you mean speaking their mind and not fearing the opposition. In other words, you prefer submissive and lock-step marching behind Fearless Leader. New ideas not needed here, move along.

Oh happy days, the government is no longer shutdown. We aren't in default. We are still paying out bills. With money that doesn't exist and never will.

Eventually the supposed faith in that absurd promise of bills being paid will give way to reality, that there isn't enough left in the Ponzi scheme to keep it running. Then what? Pick out your cave to live in and learn to like the taste of cockroaches and earthworms.

So what you're saying is when an imbecile like Dragoon has nothing he deflects and wants to resort to hashing over the true meaning of filibuster? LOL Hindsight is always 20/20 LOL! Aren't you the fella that was giving us updates on Mr Cruz's antics that day? "He's 10 hours into his filibuster and counting" LOL.

Lets cut to the chase, lets call it what it was, it was stupid.

There's nothing stupid about it. But that's what people resort to, labeling things as stupid or a waste of time, when anyone dares to step outside the ranks of the lemmings. That's why there is so little of that kind of backbone shown by Congress.

Congress will happily piss around on some legislation for months and get nowhere and there's never a whimper about it. Let 2 or 3 guys break from the Yes Men coalition and all sorts of ridicule is heaped on them.

It's just another kind of bigotry.

<quoted text>Drag is as delusional as Cruz but, can't shut down a government. He's probably closed a few bars though....
so, what I 'said' in post #193

[after reporting the message of Cruz speech to the faithful Values Voter Summit morning 10/11/13]

Meanwhile, back on planet earth, the public hates the shutdown, Americans are 20 points more likely to blame Republicans for the shutdown than Obama, the Republican Party is scoring its worst poll numbers on record, Cruz's colleagues in the House and Senate hate him, and they're preparing to cave to the president by reopening the government and funding Obamacare.

Cruz is betting that his supporters are too stupid to notice that his strategy is failing and was doomed to fail. He's probably right.

Lots of people thought that when Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election after months of conservatives proclaiming that the polls were "skewed" and he was on course to win, the party's base might start to evaluate whether it misunderstood the world around it.
Remarkably, conservative delusion about facts on the ground is more intense than ever. The appetite for stories like the one Cruz is telling is unending, impervious to facts and sustainable no matter how far the Republican Party's poll numbers fall.
When constituencies become aggrieved minorities, seeing themselves as under attack by the establishment, they are vulnerable to hucksters like Cruz, because they disregard outside warnings and evidence that they are being had.

[and]

What's unprecedented about Cruz and similar Tea Party Republicans who make up about a third of the House Republican conference is that the aggrieved localized minority has gone national. Republicans once thought Fox News and the conservative media bubble were strategic advantages that allowed them to coordinate messages and organize voters; instead, they have allowed Republican voters to remain unaware that their favorite politicians are lying to them and alienating the median voter.

Losing one election wasn't nearly enough to wake Republican voters up to this problem. Ted Cruz isn't alone on his strange planet; much of the Republican Party is right there with him. And that's likely to be true for a long time.

When your whole lucrative career hinges on staying in office it's so much safer to get one of the lemmings. Low profile assures reelection, not being innovative or questioning the status quo. If the voters know nothing about you except yours is the same name they saw on the ballot the last 12 elections then it's a lock they won't think before voting for you again. That's the reality of how it works in that alternate universe called 'The District'.

The GOP is in shambles. They got NOTHING out of this. On top of nothing, millions more people know they are the ones that shut down the government and endangered more American's jobs, as well. They'll feel this in '14 and, of course, they can forget about the presidency in '16 and '20....
