Well that was an unexpected critique from this source.

It never ceases to amaze me just how insecure and thin skinned bullies like Cruz really are.

And literally 9.5 out of ten comments are calling  the senior editor of the DC a "RINO", an "Obama agent," an "agent of the establishment," secretly a liberal, and such things.

Oh I know. The tea party rank and file HATE to have someone stand up to them. Pointing out the lies and contradictions they laughingly call their ideology drives them into fits of rage. It would be funny if they werent driving the entire country off a fiscal cliff this week.

Certainly a sane and proportional response a criticism.  "BBLLLARRGHHHHHHH!"

Should give them a clue as to why no one takes them seriously.  Ignorant bullies.
 
2013-10-14 09:47:23 AM  
I think the GOP might be starting to realize that Ted Cruz doesn't give a shiat about anything but Ted Cruz' political career, and will gladly steer them over a cliff if it helps his own goals.

People that demand ideological purity are always setting themselves up for disappointment if not failure, especially when laying all their chips on a politician.  I hate it when I see guys like Ted Cruz, a lawyer with nearly-impeccable credentials including high posts at DOJ acting all folksy.

Looks like my FB page after I said Cruz was a sub human POS last week. I've noticed that anyone who supports him is incapable of having a rational discussion about anything political. Pure weapons grade anger is all they know.

The Daily Caller is the Internet-wing of the corporate-backed RNC*. The DC's sponsors have probably had enough of Cruz's antics. They also recognize that there is no "win" here for the Republicans and that it's a fight they shouldn't have started.

/*see: pages of pro-tobacco articles and Bloomberg's soda ban haranguing.

And what's amazing is that they will make claims about how everyone else is emotional, only *they* use logic and reason, and everyone who voted for Obama *worships* him (this said while posting written praise and admiration for various GOP politicians).

If I were to post anything like that in my newsfeed, the thread would look like a nuclear wasteland of derp.

b2theory: Anyone else getting tired if having your livelihood and retirement savings threatened once a year by these asshats while they smile at you?


Yup. Along with, up 'till now, pre-negotiating capitulation by the President and the Senate. Reid saying the CR needs to be at pre-sequester levels is the first thing he's done in ages that I've liked. Now, we just have to prevent Obama from enacting "entitlement reform" and cutting Social Security.

It's crazy that a website that spent the last 5 years posting "Is Omabbama a Muslim?" stories would foster such a crazy readership.

We went over the fiscal cliff, remember? We managed to survive that, and now these farkers are trying to drive us into fiscal river of lava flowing down the middle of the fiscal valley of shiat we're in.

They're also viciously oppressed.  They're so hunted by Obama that they have to speak in code like French Resistance fighters.

Regarding the comments from the article, either we are about to witness the destruction of the tea party/republican marriage.  Or.  Half of America is about to spontaneously combust.
 
2013-10-14 11:20:53 AM  
I'm really surprised the corporate arm of the GOP has let this fiasco go on as long as it has.
 
2013-10-14 11:21:47 AM  

FTA:  "I am perpetually frustrated by what seems to be the 'Surrender Caucus' in the Congress, the group that just wants to give in,"   on Sean Hannity's radio show July 25, "the group that just want us to give in and who say, well, President Obama will never give in on his top priority. Well, why is it that he gets to hold his principles, and it's assumed that we have to roll over, when the American people are with us?"


Except you do, because they aren't.

 
2013-10-14 11:22:12 AM  
Cruz embodies the tea party so well.  He rallies up this big movement on the right to "take a stand" on "principles," no matter what the consequences.  Then, when everyone realizes that "taking a stand" is not only stupid, but has major real-world consequences, Cruz takes a back seat, attempts to act like he had nothing to do with it, and lets the adults in the room actually try to find a way out of the crisis that Cruz created.

And watch - shortly after the adults in the room figure out how to stop the bleeding, Cruz will either be grandstanding the bold GOP victory that he spearheaded, or criticizing the republicans who voted on the solution for betraying their republican principles.

He's the worst example of a complete scumbag politician who only cares about grandstanding to his extremely stupid and gullible constituents.

Simple solution there: don't elect people who think of government as the enemy to government.  That's like hiring an arsonist as a firefighter.

Naw, that's not code. It's just one more aspect of the internally contradictory nature of the Teafaulters: The seething, irrational anger they feel has grossly outstripped their ability to  express that anger.

Calling duly elected officials traitors and plotting seditions acts against them? Plotting the collapse of the government in a myopically misguided attempt to save it? That's all hunky-dory. Practically natural.

But using  swears? Oh, nonononononono. That's what base,  lesser people do. They're not  those people.

First Paragraph:  "Ted Cruz's "aw shucks" act is wearing thin."

Twentieth Paragraph:   "Sadly, so far Cruz's "aw shucks" strategy seems to be working, at least in terms building his own brand. He appears to have so far paid little price among the conservative grassroots . . ."
