Just Cruz(in)...

Doesn't he remind you of Senator Joseph McCarthy of the "Red Scare" era of American politics. Almost a spittin image in fact.

Who knew his many talents. Senator Cruz is a comedian as well as a Tea Party Republican Senator.

Oh, another thing. Unless my sources are mistaken he's a Canadian Cuban as well.

Have a great weekend. It's going to be beautiful and 80 degrees in Massachusetts.

No for the Cruz man...
TPM - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joked that media outlets should refer to the man who jumped the White House fence, made it across the lawn, and got inside as an "undocumented White House visitor.

"We should insist that ABC, NBC, CBS, they refer to the visitor according to the term that is politically correct: an undocumented White House visitor," Cruz, a hardliner on immigration reform, said during his speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday.

Since the intrusion the White House has said it planned to boost security including increasing surveillance and using more police officer patrols.

  1. I'm thinking that being a spitting image of old Tail-gunner Joe would be a political liability.

  2. One would think BB Idaho.

    But then again we're talking 21st century tea bags here.

  3. The folks who constantly claim liberals "worship" Obama as their "messiah" (no liberal ever said Obama is a messiah, nor do we "worship" him) completely overlook this evidence of "messiah making" that is real and that Ted Cruz's father evangelizes:

    "Rafael Cruz' dominionist sermon given August 26, 2012, at the New Beginnings Church of pastor Larry Huch, in Irving, Texas has already received considerable scrutiny due to an excellent Huffington Post commentary by Methodist Associate Pastor Morgan Guyton, who noted the explicitly dominionist nature of pastor Cruz' sermon, which concerned the divine mandate for believers, with anointing of "kings" in their respective spheres, to take control over all sectors of society.

    Cruz spoke of "Kings who are anointed to go to war, win the war, and bring the spoils of war to the priests."

    Discussion of the now-notorious speech by Rafael Cruz has missed the fact that Ted Cruz was subsequently blessed and anointed by prominent dominionist pastors, in effect as a "king" in the political/governmental sphere, at a special blessing ceremony at the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, at a July 19th-20th 2013 rally designed to draw pastors into politics."

    Obama is no "king" or "messiah." He's a human being with flaws who makes mistakes. But do we know of any president who wasn't flawed and who made mistakes? There is no pastor who designated Mr. Obama as a "king" who will bring spoils to the priests. What the hell does that mean?

    Anyway, my point is that we'll hear not a peep out of Cruz's supporters over this very strange and very unAmerican idea from Ted Cruz's father. I wonder if Ted Cruz believes he's a "king."

  4. All pretty bad, Shaw. But I only hold the parts about Ted to be relevant at all.

    Just like I won't go all Dinesh on Obama and hold his father against him whatsoever.

  5. If I understand Dmarks’ remarks: “The sins of the father shall not be borne upon the sons.” In this context, I agree. How many successful people have risen from hardscrabble beginnings to leadership positions in arts, athletics, entertainment, music, science, and medicine!

    Then again, think of America’s prominent political families – the Bush family, the Clinton family, and the Kennedy family – and how name recognition and family resources are leveraged on behalf of every new aspirant. Family lineage says a lot about a candidate even before you know anything about the candidate.

    On the basis of words and deeds alone, Mr. Cruz has been a leading voice of nullification in our legislative process, a voice of “my-way-or-the-highway” that has poisoned the well of bipartisanship and made compromise and consensus impossible. A belligerent McCarthy-style politician, Cruz is not my cup of Tea Party.

    1. I do hold Ted Cruz' own personal participation in this "dominionism"... and Shaw has mentioned some... to be fair game.

      "Family lineage says a lot about a candidate even before you know anything about the candidate."

      Or some. Or nothing at all. Can you imagine that Ted Kennedy had the views of his father in regards to the "Jew Media" as he called it? I sure can't.

    2. Also, (O)CT(O)PUS, you said "...On the basis of words and deeds alone..."

      I commend you here for this sound basis of criticism of Ted Cruz.

      In fact, one need look no further than this one instance of Cruz, given an opportunity to make points in a crucial health care debate. This is what he chose to say:

      I am Sam

      I am Sam
      Sam I am

      That Sam-I-am
      That Sam-I-am!
      I do not like
      that Sam-I-am

      Do you like
      green eggs and ham

      I do not like them,
      Sam-I-am....
