His goal is default. So yes, it's going rather splendidly right now

Yes, when I want to cut spending, I just stop paying my bills until I default.

I like how he commissioned a partisan pollster to run this poll for him and yet even the partisan pollster found that more people blame Republicans.
 
2013-10-10 09:29:32 AM  
Just to be fair and balanced, how have all the Democrat instigated shutdowns turned out? What's that? Oh

Ted Cruz is a dangerous sociopath.

Truly a great american. Can you do our national budget?

No doubt Marie Antoinette conducted a similar poll showing things weren't as bad for the French Monarchy as the tumbril rolled up to the door.

Someone give that commenter a cookie. Or a slice of cake.

Isn't the rest of the party shunning him now?

He has successfully argued cases in front of the Supreme Court.
This fact strikes me in two distinct ways:
1)  How can someone do the above and still appear so astronomically ignorant and utterly without sense
2)  *looks at Supreme Court* Oh....Oh my.  Good luck everyone.

I also like how they claim we have enough money to cover our debts. It's like they assume you can take your mortgage and only pay the interest on it and not expect the bank to come ask for the rest of your payment.

As well as your cable company, your electrical company, your insurance provider, your water utility and your local property tax assessor.

FTA: Cruz paid for a poll conducted by Chris Perkins, of Republican polling firm Wilson Perkins Allen.

(. . .)

Cruz's poll found that 46 percent blame the 2013 shutdown on Republicans, while 51 percent blamed the 1995 shutdown on Republicans, according to the Examiner.


Cruz is eating his own dogfood.

Good luck with that GOP.  Too bad the Tea Party hates everything in there.

The man is very intelligent. The problem is that the only person he cares about is Ted Cruz and he does that by throwing red meat to the people in TX who voted him into office.

Boy are you guys going to be surprised when Lonegan wins in New Jersey.
 
2013-10-10 09:51:01 AM  
If better means your party have never had lower ratings, sure.

So... the thought of someone like Ted Cruz giving you a blowjob is appealing?

Practice makes perfect.
 
2013-10-10 09:58:39 AM  
If you think it is going better now than in 1995, then get in front of a mic, admit that this is what your party wanted all along, and that you will own up (and be proud) to everything bad (and whatever good) the shutdown of the Gov causes. OWN UP TO IT.

But if the shiat on the fan is bigger than you thought it would be, then you can't blame the President and the Democratic members of congress. After all, they want the Gov open... they want the House to vote on a clean CR. Got it? Now go ahead and OWN UP TO IT.

UncomfortableSilence: The only thing these guys are willing to raise is the derp ceiling.


What he said is technically true.  Unfortunately it went so bad for them in '95 that it takes very little to go better.

To be fair, most banks would take that arrangement in a heartbeat

When you lead an insurrection during wartime (remember Afghanistan?) you've got to expect bad reviews.

Stupid is as stupid does, and he is doing things that are really really stupid.

So he used a pollster to do math as a Republican to make himself feel better, eh? The kind of math where the numbers show you unequivocally losing, but you argue they don't anyway in a sad demonstration of reality denial. Seems to be the ONLY kind of math the GOP knows how to do anymore.
 
2013-10-10 10:02:02 AM  
Admitting that only about a quarter if Americans still have a decent feeling about your party and claiming that you're winning because not as many people are blaming your side as the last time you did this, in a survey you paid a biased firm to do is ridiculous. Though I expected nothing less from the middle if the echo chamber.

And how many people take mortgages worth their annual income?  Compared to most citizens, the U.S. government is under-leveraged.  But you know what's stupid?  Comparing household budgets to governments.

Yes, because he knows the sort of people who make up his base.

This guy graduated from Princeton cum laude and Harvard Law magna cum laude before going into a very successful legal career that included two wins before the supreme court. You don't do any of those things if you have shiat for brains.
