Anybody else just get a sudden feeling like Ted Cruz needs a swift kick to the nuts?
 
2013-09-24 04:24:34 PM
Some of his GOP elders need to take him out back and teach him some manners.

OTOH he is now absolutely ruining any chance he ever might have had in 2016

What I love about that is that he got his facts wrong...  Neville Chamberlain wasn't appeasing the Nazis in the 1940s... I mean, maybe he appeased them a little during the couple of months of 1940 where he was still Prime Minister, but most of his heavy-duty appeasement was done in the 1930s.

I just think it's amazing the guy found the time to do that, sleep with 10,000+ women and play basketball. I mean, talk about getting shiat done!

meh. Chamberlain is to appeasement like Hoover is to The Great Depression in the US. Sure the people who came before him were far more responsible for what happened but he was the guy when the shiat finally hit the fan.

I also think it's a bit of a case of 'hindsight is 20/20'. Pan-Germanism != Lebensraum, and all the lands ceded to Germany was land that was mostly German. Hitler wasn't into full "Fark the Slavs" mode yet at that point.

yes. providing health insurance to 30,000,000 uninsured is JUST LIKE the holocaust.

Wait, was that in the "Deathly Hallows" epilogue? I thought he was just the Herbology professor.

Oh Ted, Ted Ted Ted...give it up. It's game over man. Your 2016 hopes are dashed. You're gonna lose a crushing defeat in the senate and House (which is impressive considering your a senator)

Stop digging, dude. You're making your party look bad (and they don't need help in that department)

Cruz must have missed this trouncing.  Gotta stay current, spud.

"And in America there were voices that listened to that," he continued.

Prescott Bush, for instance.

What?! Stop pretending he's a fictional character. He's one of the greatest voices to ever grace R&B.

Serious question: Did the Third Reich offer national healthcare?

I know they had quite a national public health campaign about not smoking and keeping physically fit, and they certainly made many, uh, "strides" in the fields of medical innovations and knowledge with their world renown experiments.
 
2013-09-24 05:57:02 PM
Cruz: quoting Chamberlain: 'Accept the Nazis. Yes, they'll dominate the continent of Europe but that's not our problem. Let's appease them. Why? Because it can't be done. We can't possibly stand against them.'

I'm pretty sure that's not an exact quote. It's more of a paraphrase or, if you will, a bizarre distortion of reality.

If you use Hitler or the Nazis as an example you should automatically be disqualified from whatever the fark it is you are doing

It's an apt analogy.  When it comes to fighting against socialized medicine (Obamacare), the people need a Churchill, not a Chamberlain.

Want an apt analogy?

Obamacare is to socialized medicine as Ted Cruz is to Winston Churchill.

You know who basically invented socialized healthcare? OTTO VON BISMARCK! Study it out, people!

It's perfect. Makes equal sense when viewed through either rational or teabagger lenses.

Good point.  Bismarck created national health insurance to appease the socialists.  Then the National Socialists Nazis took complete control over the socialist medicine system.  That's why Cruz is right when he says that people need to fight socialized medicine, not appease it.  Appeasing it just leads to more of it.

"There were voices in America who listened to the appeasers in the 1940's..."

Per Cruz...

Yes, those voices were the Republican Party and their non-interventionist policies. Very apt analogy.

So there must be some pretty nasty socialists... let's see who was the first president of the USA to suggest Socialized healthcare, he must have been a really horrible president.... that scoundrel Thomas Jefferson!

Well technically he wasn't appeasing in 1940 since England declared war on Germany in September 1939 to honor thier treaty with Poland.

Looking at today's Fark headlines, I'm beginning to think that "Ted Cruz" is Spanglish for "Sarah Palin."
