Ted Cruz Offers Fellow GOP Senators Some Advice: You Could Try To Not Be Such "Squishes"
— Ace

Ted Cruz has revealed that he's been yelled at by his fellow GOP senators. He hasn't named names (he ought to-- accusations should come with names attached).

Here's the shouted complaint, according to Cruz:

The Wall Street Journal attacked the group for letting President Obama blame Republicans for blocking gun control instead of moderate Democrats. Cruz said senators made a similar argument: “They said, ‘Listen, before you did this, the politics of it were great. The [Democrats] were the bad guys, the Republicans were the good guys. Now we all look like a bunch of squishes.’”

That sounds almost unbelievable -- almost too perfect for a red-meat crowd-- except we know that GOP senators do think that way. Mitch McConnell, for example, is a big fan of the strategy of losing -- he's forever talking up taking tactical losses, losing on this law or that, losing this freedom or that one, and then counting himself lucky because now we win the political issue at the strategic level.

There are two problems with this sort of thinking:

1. It's no comfort that we might gain some political traction if we're losing on the issues we care about.

2. We never actually do win on the political level, either. There is never any Silver Lining in losing. Perhaps it's possible for some deft politicians to rescue a strategic victory out of a tactical defeat, but the crop of guys we have have proven repeatedly they're not up to it.

Returning to the complaint about Cruz making the squishes look bad, and made life for them politically difficult: He offered them some advice.

’Well, there is an alternative. You could just not be a bunch of squishes.’”

What an evil, to put a senator in the position of having to choose between his supposed constituents, the voters, and his actual constituents, the media and the Sunday morning shows that no one watches anymore.

5 What an evil, to put a senator in the position of having to choose between his supposed constituents, the voters, and his actual constituents, the media and the Sunday morning shows that no one watches anymore. It's even crueler than that, it's forcing people to actually take a position and then defend it. What a dastardly thing to demand! I agree on the naming names issue. Publish and be damned.

Here's a Republican strategy I could live with:

 

1. Face facts.

 

2. Tell the truth about those facts.

 

3. Do the right thing.

 

4. Repeat.

 

Cruz seems to be one of the few who gets that this is pretty effective.

THIS. I was going to comment to this effect but, lo and behold, it was already Ace's central point. We MUST force out any public official who doesn't understand this fundamental political truth.

Any budding 14 year old conservative understands that this is the climate. If you cannot wrap your head around this, you are too stupid to hold public office. Period.

Standing for your core beliefs and you will win in the end.  Or you will die with the knowledge that you did what you could.

 

Does anyone remember when Reagan rallied against federalizing welfare benefits.  He went against EVERY Republican governor and his own PRESIDENT Nixon.

 

And he was fucking right.  That takes courage.  When every media outlet and even your own party are knifing you in the back, THAT IS COURAGE.  With Reagan, it never ended.  1) Air traffic controllers; 2) Star Wars; 3) negotiations with Soviets; etc., etc., etc.

 

Reagan stood strong and laughed it off and essentially said fuck you idiots.  And he will be remembered as one of the greatest Presidents this nation ever had.

 

Zero, not so much.  Fuck you media class and fuck you WSJ and fuck all of you clowns that doesn't understand shit.

59 We never actually do win on the political level, either. Not “we”, but Republicans got a nice temporary victory by “letting” Obamacare pass (I’m not sure what they could have done about it, but I vaguely recall something around Christmas of that period). Maybe that’s their model now.

This exact argument can be used in the recent debate between DrewM and the Loaf of Ungrateful Bread regarding trying to "fix" a part of Obamacare.  While I agree that LoUB has some good intellectual points, they end being only theoretically good points because we never get to harvest any political benefits from what Drew called 3 dimensional chess. Not ever.

95 McCain must really hate any Repub who gets more face time with "his friends" in the MFM than he does.  Am I the only person that thinks he's gotten really out of touch with his small number of emotional control mechanisms lately?  He used to be somewhat gracious on a limited number of occasions but he's gone full Schumer lately while not even pretending to care what the party position is.

Insty's got the right idea.  There needs to be a way to hold cops accountable for improper actions.  If the city gets sued, then the city will pay out.  But nothing will happen to the cops (including whichever higher-up on the force approved this).

They left the first doctor's office to get a second opinion (and after the doc's nurse gave their baby the wrong medicine.  The police showed up at the second doc's office, who told them the parents had done nothing wrong, and so they left.



They came to the parents' house the next day and took the baby, because the first doc reported them to DHS.  They were given supervised visitation of their own baby at the hospital.

I supported and campaigned for Cruz before most anyone here knew who he was.  I was introduced to him through Jay Nordlinger's articles about him and his representation of Texas as Solicitor. 

 

That said,  Dewhurst pissed me off with his campaign commercials but I would have to admit I believe he would have also made a good Senator.  Not as outspoken and active as Cruz, which is why I voted for him,  but he would have been staunchly conservative in his positions. 

 

Its not fair to frame the Texas Senate race as between a RINO and a Tea Party conservative.  Remember , Rick Perry was a huge supporter of Dewhurst when he could have been neutral.

176 And afternoon Morons! I was a good girl yesterday and had a salad for lunch, thus was punished with a serious case of food poisoning. Am having trouble even keeping ginger tea down, but doing my best to stay hydrated. Am at work because of crushing deadlines but wish I was in bed; having a work ethic sucks. Any suggested remedies much appreciated. Posted by: LizLem at April 30, 2013 01:48 PM (8wqqE) A non-dairy pro-biotic, such as Kombucha Tea. Sold at Whole Foods or other natural grocery stores.

177 Unfortunately Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban immigrantand maynot eligible to be President. His mother is from Delaware. Posted by: polynikes at April 30, 2013 02:58 PM (m2CN7) Man, the trolls are out. Every single comment thread on the internet regarding Ted Cruz has his eligibility for president brought up. Every. single. one. He's eligible, btw. His mother was an American citizen at the time of his birth. That's what matters- not where you were born. McCain was born in Panama.

178 Man, the trolls are out. Every single comment thread on the internet regarding Ted Cruz has his eligibility for president brought up. Every. single. one. I know, right? Why, it's almost as if the Government had a vast army of paid internet trollers who receive the same orders every day, hit the same sites and work in shifts. But I'm just a crazy right-wingnut so what do I know.

The only people who matter when it comes to Cruz are us Texans, and we like Ted Cruz just fine.

 

Go Ted.
