Buffoon, yes. But he has to be one of Obama's favorite republicans. Not only did he set up the House republicans for a humiliating defeat when he urged them to try a government shut down, he gave Obama a nice Christimas present this year
I can't say i know much about McCarthy (wish Fox would do more history shows). I do feel he is too maligned. But then, that's what always happens to the R by the L
What do you mean Rand Paul all the way?
Are Cruz and R Paul pretty much equal to you?
what the heck does this mean?
Ted Cruz goes against the grain in Congress.
Few others seem willing to do this. It's business as usual with most of the so called Rs in Congress
Ted Cruz gets accused of all kinds of nefarious motives
But what is REALLY REALLY cool about Cruz is that he doesn't CARE
Or maybe he cares, but he cares more about doing what is RIGHT. Gee... what a thought!
You are aware that McCarthy was right aren't you? (Had we only listened, we as a nation wouldn't be in the trouble that we are today).
You and other drug addicts need help shag, and sometimes locking morally confused people up is the only way.
If by "help" you mean helping them make more connections into the drug world, then sure, locking them up with real criminals helps a lot.
Otherwise, it's a stupid idea.
McCarthy was not concerned with rolling back socialist legislation. That is a myth. He wanted to create a panic to restrict press and 1st amendment freedoms.
Connie is trying to flirt with you and be your bff.
Just go with it
So if Cruz were to run would the same birthers go after him? He was born in Canada to a U.S. mother and a Cuban father. They lived in Canada for a few years before moving to the States. He recently has renounced his Canadian citizenship in an attempt to head off that question.
His birth history is similar to that of both Obama and McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal Zone, except that at least Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961, two years after Hawaii became the 50th state, which should have eliminated all the stupid speculation. In other words, Cruz's birthplace is more questionable than Obama's. That being said, most legal experts believe that "natural-born" simply means that their citizenship stems from their birth circumstances (including having at least one U.S. citizen for a parent) so that they do not have to be naturalized to receive their citizenship. By that standard Cruz would be covered.
Just food for thought, especially with this crowd.
Ted Cruz was raised with a father who was bigoted and strict. I am not surprised at Cruz's tribalism, racism, nativism and fear of others.
If I had grown up with a father like that I would feel the same way.
The Koch brothers grew up with an authoritarian and abusive father. One of the brothers still carries the scar on his back when he was cut by a saber his father used to "discipline" him.
Understand where someone is coming from and you can connect with them on a human level.
