"the trainwreck that is Obamacare, in my view"

True, the whole Obamacare thing hasn't worked out as well for Cruz as he had hoped it would. In fact, it ended up making him look like an idiot.
 
2014-04-11 03:35:37 PM  
Give em hell Ted.
 
2014-04-11 03:36:25 PM  
After hearing that guy speak, would ANYONE want him to be the voice of our nation?

I don't mean figuratively.
I mean his actual voice sounds like he should be operating a muppet on sesame street.

That alone should bar him from running for the presidency.
Never mind the whole being born in Canada thing.

This.  The fight against Obamacare has become the GOP train wreck in the same way as Benghazi has become a scandal of GOP desperation and lies.

It's because that man is a muppet.  If you had your donor's hands that far up your ass treating you like a puppet you'd sound just like him.

He's literally got nothing else. If he gave it up what would he cling to? What could possibly keep him in the spotlight and show him as leading a national movement with the 2016 primaries so far away?

The horse carcass is already down to bones and those are breaking down. Still, the beating continues.

FTA: "I think Burwell presents an ideal opportunity to examine the failures that are Obamacare. And four years ago, reasonable minds could have differed over whether this thing might work," Cruz said. "Today, seeing the disaster, seeing the trainwreck that is Obamacare, in my view, it is the essence of pragmatism to acknowledge this thing isn't working. We need to start over, repeal every word of it. Start over."

So 4 years ago when you were pushing the idea that there would be death panels and all sorts of horrors, "reasonable minds could have differed", but today, when the best you have is "The website didn't work", or "Only 6 million not 7 millions signed up.. I think..". It is now a disaster?
