First Mitt, now Ted.

Watch yourself, Candy.  Teabaggers will put a hit out on you.

Recordings are a socialist tool of the liberal lame stream media.  Real Marekins don't listen to recordings unless they come from a cable news network endorsed by Jesus.

What's funny is that even though you were being sarcastic, some right wingers I know have dismissed recordings of their Messiah Figure of the Month lying on pretty much the same basis.

Catie Kouric:  Tell me Senator, which topics do you derp?

Cruz:  All of them.

"Let me be clear, I didn't say Republicans will win this," he said. "Listen, I think career politicians in both parties have been part of the problem. What I said is the American people are going to win."

Woah. He's admitting he could probably lose? Well, that means he's lost already.

Cruz is so far in denial he needs a snorkel

I still have trouble believing he actually thought he was going to get any Democratic help on this one.

The more he talks, the more he sounds like Petyr Baelish from Game of Thrones: He'd burn the country to the ground if it meant he could rule the ashes. The problem is that although he isn't anywhere near as cunning as Baelish is, that doesn't seem to be a prerequisite for successfully f*cking over everyone in a mad pursuit of power.

I think we need to listen to the unbiased, unskewed recordings to get both sides of the story

I'm... I'm... I don't know what I am. I feel foolish for actually believing the Republicans would get their shiat together.

It's not that he "forgot" anything, it's that he knows IT DOESN'T MATTER.

The people who vote still vote Republican will continue to vote Republican and this lie does not matter. Period.

While some of us have moved forward into the information age and verifiable facts a significant percentage of the electorate recoils in horror at the notion.

Yeah Ted Cruz's implosion is nice and all, but I hate to burst everyone's bubble, he's going to be around until at least 2018. Assuming of course the country still exists.
 
2013-10-07 10:47:25 AM  
Don't matter. Ted Cruz could yell at a group of Tea Partiers that they're just useful tools for the 1% and they'll be screwed even more because of the GOP, and he'll get thunderous applause.
 
2013-10-07 10:47:56 AM  
I mean, Green Eggs and Ham. He read freakin Green Eggs and Ham, and then made some off handed remark about how it was appropriate to the ACA debate. And he's against it!

Stupid farking idiot

We need Dr. Frist to review the videotape so he can make a proper diagnosis.

I tend to agree.  I my experience normal people invest at least some of themselves in what they say.  They may contradict themselves by accident or out of shame, guilt, embarrassment etc.

With Cruz I get them impression that he really doesn't care what he's said in the past.
 
2013-10-07 10:55:47 AM  
Cruz is just really, really trying for the hipster vote.
 
2013-10-07 10:56:29 AM  
It's odd. At some point, we'll have politicians that are aware mostly everything is captured these days. Off hand comments are instantly tweeted to millions, shared on millions more Facebook pages, and then "reported" by CNN as breaking news. Not to mention actual speeches and interviews and such. Gone are the days Filibuster Frank could roll into Iowa, say one thing, and then roll down to Oklahoma and say something completely different, no one ever knowing the difference. The old ones certainly haven't died off yet, but you'd think even they would get it at some point.

Now, if we actually had a media that held them accountable for the shiat they say, we'd be in business. A self-aware constituency would help even more. But then again, self-awareness would void any chance of a current-ethos Republican getting elected.

PCL-R model of psychopathy:

Factor 1: Interpersonal/Affective
    Glibness/superficial charm
    Grandiose sense of self-worth
    Pathological lying
    Cunning/manipulative
    Lack of remorse or guilt
    Shallow affect (genuine emotion is short-lived and egocentric)
    Callousness; lack of empathy
    Failure to accept responsibility for his or her own actions

Factor 2: Lifestyle/Antisocial
    Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
    Parasitic lifestyle
    Poor behavioral control
    Lack of realistic long-term goals
    Impulsiveness
    Irresponsibility
    Juvenile delinquency
    Early behavior problems
    Revocation of conditional release
    Criminal versatility

Traits not correlated with either factor
    Promiscuous sexual behavior
    Many short-term (marital) relationships
    Acquired behavioral sociopathy/sociological conditioning


I don't really know enough about his history to judge Factor 2, but Cruz hits almost every single indicator in Factor 1.

Just sayin'...

I agree, and that's unfortunate. Their base will continue to vode them into the House in the gerrymandered districts, but they will not lose or gain ground in the Senate, either. So this will last until 2016. And the ACA and who is to blame will be wedge issues. Again.

I believe he said it, and I saw that he was quoted, but I can't actually find the video everyone is referring to of him saying "Republicans will win this."  Can someone please link it?

Selective memory is selective. Repubs remember Reagan cut taxes in 1981. They conveniently forget he then raised taxes several times to pay for his massive defense spending spree and continue to fellate his rotting corpse.

Ted and the rest of his cronies know this. They count on it.

Nothing to see here, move along
