    Ted Cruz knows exactly what he is doing

    No one else may know what the hell he was thinking but apparently Ted Cruz knows precisely what he is doing. He could be changing the face of American politics the same way the 9/11 hijackers did. Interesting piece.

    You mean the guy that held up the FCC appointee so political donation transparency would be done away with?

    Also, the comparison to the 9/11 hijackers is incredibly apt.

    Odds are the guy is a pedophile.

    It's not that most pedophiles end up being Republicans. From all the lists, it's more likely that most Republicans are pedophiles themselves. To answer the question of why, this is because Republicans are sheer hypocrites, capable of the most "depraved" sex acts known to man. Their outright moralism is merely a disguise for their shameful hypocrisy. Just look at Newt Gingrich for example. He lambasted Bill Clinton over the Lewinsky sex scandal, where Clinton was accused of having an affair with a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky. But Gingrich is just as guilty of having affairs himself.

    If Cruz is not a pedophile I'd be surprised.

    He may know exactly what he's doing, but he has no idea what the consequences of those actions are. Getting your name in the paper, and your face on TV is what Cruz wanted, and he certainly got that.

    The unintended consequence for him is that people got a good, long look at who and what Cruz is. And they've decided, for the most part, that they want no part of Cruz and his ilk. Oh sure, he's got a real vocal following, but they don't have the numbers to gain a majority of either house, and they sure don't have the numbers to win the White House. They can make a lot of noise, and they can even stir up a bit of trouble, until people realize that they're just a bunch of bullies, and that you stop bullies by standing up to them rather than caving in to their demands.

    So Cruz got what he wanted, for now. A lot of publicity. Come next election though, he may wish that he had remained out of the spotlight rather than pushing people out of the way to get into it.

    Disagreed. I object to this on the strongest possible terms.
    This statement is entirely inappropriate. Onto ignore you go.

    The working relationship that he does not have with his Senate colleagues and the GOP leadership is not good for my state. He has not been working for us. He's been pursuing his own personal agenda. How Washingtonian for a guy who constantly rails against Washington. I hope he runs for POTUS in 2016. I really do.

    Great...just what the country needs...another ill informed, crazy, born again ideologue from Texas.
    It must be something in the water out there.

    It appears to be a trend with our "new" members. Some other "new" dipshit posted the same thing yesterday. ("Bitty"?)

    Highly suspicious. I suspect righties playing games. The option would be to believe that two lefties came up with that ignorant drivel independently two days in a row. Looks like an obvious attempt to smear the left to me.

    I'll join you with that ignore button. Hardly matters where that crap is coming from when it's so easy to shut out.

    I think "stillborn" would be a good term for it. Did they get Bitty, too?
