Ol' Bob's not buying whatever it is you're selling, Sen. Punchface.

But Rafael's true believers don't care what Schieffer thinks.

Man, I would've liked for Schieffer to have some of Cruz's quotes from the shutdown ready. That would've been killer.

The worst thing about it is Cruz completely believes his own BS.

Let's not forget, this is the intellectual powerhouse that is supposed to be the future of conservative politics.  How a debt that cannot be incurred without Congressional approval, including the Republican controlled House, is the sole province of the President is a question he should be asked every time he starts with this line of BS.

Are you sure? Look into his eyes as he says that stuff. He believes it. It's why he voted for budget bills piecemeal.

"Well, Bob, with all due respect, I don't agree with the premise of your question," Cruz replied. "Throughout the government shutdown, I opposed a government shutdown. I said we shouldn't shut the government down. I think it was a mistake that President Obama and the Democrats shut the government down this fall."

If Senator Ted Cruz swallowed a nail he's probably shiat out a corkscrew an hour later.

Everybody with half a brain who had even one eye open during that whole debacle knows that it was Cruz and his teatarded cohorts demanding that they stand together and threaten to shut down the government unless they could (after umpteen failed prior attempts) defund, derail, or at least weaken the ACA aka Obamacare.

It was a massive game of chicken they played. Played and lost.

This shiat may go down a right treat at TP derpfest love-ins but not on a national level.

Good on Scheiffer for laughing in Ted's eminently punchable face.

Bob Scheiffer, last of the Old Guard. He wasn't even the middle of the pack of the group. I shudder to think who will be left to question our politicians when he croaks.

One of the greatest threats to our country is not the idiot Teabaggers, far-left loonies (who seem to be seriously outnumbered in the past few decades), and Corporatists... It's the lack of accountability of these people by serious journalists who do not fear for their career and ask the hard questions.

Bob's fantastic in comparison to our modern bloggerettes, but he's no Murrow. He's no Brinkley. Hell, Sam Donaldson was an asshole, but he at least tried to make them answer the goddamn question.

We have no serious newsmen left in this country. We're all worse off for that.

Hey, read about Bob. His brother was appointed Ambassador under W. That's why I said he wasn't even middle-of-the-road. Aside from a few, I like Scott Pelley, we have no real newsmen. Bob is one of the best we have and that should frighten us.

Charlie Rose is good, but who is going to listen to a 15 hour interview? We're bones man.

The beauty of fark is, and has been, it allows me to see stories around the world I would not otherwise see and TRY to figure them out. I'm not a smart man. I just do the best I can. Peter Jennings used to explain it to me in 30 minutes minus commercials.

If anything, we as farkers are witnessing, and have been witnessing the decline of journalism since even before this site was founded.

At least ol' Bob has moments of "WTF? Are you serious?"

I can't even watch the Sunday shows anymore. They are complete bullsh*t. I mean, they always were, but it's just gotten so much worse I'd rather watch Judge Judy.

Mao St. Taxbongo destroyed America. The government is obviously no longer part of America, because of taxes or minorities, I assume.

I had a chance to meet and sit and talk with Bob Schieffer a bunch of years ago in New Hampshire a day or two prior to the New Hampshire primaries.  My wife and I and another couple go up there every four years to enjoy the insanity. We were done for the day and he came back to the hotel he was staying at and we were sitting in the bar.  He saw we noticed him and came over to our table and talked with us for a good half hour.  Nicest person you'd ever want to meet. The man has witnessed so much history and he shared some great stories.  We've met a ton of politicians and news people up there over the years and we've got some awesome stories, but he stands above them all.

Don't underestimate the political utility of being able to spout bullshiat with a sincere-looking poker face.

Give Bob his due; he actually repeated some of his questions in this one, because Cruz was slinging such abjectly delusional evasive BS.

This poll was taken right as the shutdown was ended:

While Cruz has received much criticism from Democrats and moderate Republicans, tea party activists have rallied to support Cruz. In a recent Pew poll, Cruz's favorability rating among tea partiers soared to 74 percent, up from 47 percent in July. By contrast, his favorability among more moderate members of the Republican Party is 25 percent

Cruz knows Tea Partiers love the lie. They WANT America to implode, and he's their guy. I just don't get why he isn't honest. He base LOVES that he tried to destroy government.

Yeah, I don't know why he keeps up this "I didn't shut down the government, Fartbongo did it" bullshiat.  His supporters love him for shutting down the government, and everyone else doesn't believe him.  It's a weird lie to stick to.

Yup.  The image that comes to mind is that one hick Congresswoman from TN saying on Fox News something to the effect of, "Maybe during the shutdown people will learn that they can live with a lot less GUVERMYENT."  I don't know how to duplicate in text her obnoxious slackjawed pronunciation of "government."

But anyway, yeah, wasn't the shutdown supposed to be a good thing in GOP eyes?

Dude, that is COMPLETELY unfair.

Rats can make loving, intelligent, and impressively affectionate pets. Hell, you can even train them to scramble off you and back into their cage when they need to go to the bathroom.

Seriously, comparing them to Ted Cruz? That's just low, man.

Because he's running for President. You can't win on the "I shut down the government" ticket, but you can on the rewrite history and blame those dastardly democrats *twirls mustache* ticket

I would argue that the corporatists are the ones responsible for the lack of accountability. When TV news is just another profit center there's no reason to bother with hard-hitting journalism when you can just run another story about the Kardashians.
