Earguy: You think Obama fostered partisanship? Both sides digging in and refusing to cooperate? Wait til we get pres Ted Cruz.
CPennypacker: God can you imagine this goober in the oval office?
oldernell: The verifications required to prove he's a citizen may preclude his run.
wxboy: The only bad thing about Ted Cruz getting the (R) nomination in 2016 would be the nonzero chance of him winning the election.
you have pee hands: Why do you get to be known as a "values voter" when your values are objectively shiatty?
Lost Thought 00: Democrats could literally name the President of their choice if that happened./wish they could find a non clinton woman to fill the job
j_hat: Warren/Franken 2016!
Elegy: The funniest thing is, these leftist degenerates are as obsessed with Ted Cruz as they are with Ohhhh-Bahhhhmmm-aahhhhh, and will be for many years to come.Because leftists fail to think in terms of timeless absolutes, they actually have no intellectual grounding at all--all they really have are circumstances and personalities. Thus the left's obsession with celebrities, a cultish worship of some likely personality, and events of the moment--they have little else.Ted Cruz is wisely facilitating a growing movement back toward smaller government, and our founding principles. That movement will expand rather rapidly as political parties continue to decline in power and liberalism's shortcomings become increasingly apparent to all (even those who don't live in a hellhole like liberal Detroit). The decentralizing influence of the internet is a major factor--the Republican Party will be the first to diversify, sharing its former power with a variety of groups, but the Dems will follow. This iteration of the resurgent Conservative movement is just getting started, and will not reach its peak for 40 years or more...
bborchar: oldernell: The verifications required to prove he's a citizen may preclude his run.This. I don't see how he is eligible at all.
Erix: For a while I thought you might be a genuine conservative poster, which I actually would love to see. Oh well.
sprawl15: CPennypacker: God can you imagine this goober in the oval office?He wouldn't know what to do without a corner to sit in.
Leader O'Cola: How did he even get elected? His soft effeminate looks, and his voice and lisp, ambiguous perceived sexual orientation---- completely antithetical to the "image" of a rugged burly bootstrappy whatever Texas GOP voters would hypothetically pick.....
Kibbler: I heard a long piece on NPR yesterday. One of the points it made is that at least part of the current impasse can be laid at Obama's door. Back in the Reagan era, Reagan and O'Neil went at each other hammer and tongs, but Reagan had a certain political sense that Obama lacks. He was very careful to be sociable to O'Neil and the Democratic leadership. They would get together and have a drink and socialize. He showered them with social perks, which they ate up with a spoon and asked for more. There has been a lot of grumbling among Republicans that Obama never did this, and many on the blue side who acknowledge that Obama is a policy wonk and has never liked schmoozing, with his side or the other side.This aspect of politics irritates me, first because I'm no schmoozer either (I would hate it), and second because, dammit, this is a government, not a social club. But the simple reality is that politics is partly a social club, whether we like it or not. Things might not be so bad if Obama had been able to schmooze more at the start of his administration.I think Cruz would be even worse. His own party hates him at this point. I can't imagine him being able to schmooze even them, much less the Democrats. He doesn't seem like a policy wonk to me so much as a self-aggrandizing climber. So I think the gridlock would be even worse than it is today, hard as that seems to believe.
palelizard: sprawl15: CPennypacker: God can you imagine this goober in the oval office?He wouldn't know what to do without a chorner to sit in.You forgot the h.
born_yesterday: Erix: For a while I thought you might be a genuine conservative poster, which I actually would love to see. Oh well.Yeah; all we get anymore are horribly written, obvious parodies that some people take seriously. Well, that or the "pithy" one-liners along the lines of "Obama bad!".
Cyclometh: He can't even run; he's Canadian.
Erix: I'd love to be able to debate this stuff with reasonable conservatives
