For EXTRA CREDIT,
what movie hero best describes TED CRUZ?
Ted Cruz probably knew how he would be treated beforehand, as most guests do. To do otherwise risks the guest never going on again.
It was a good opportunity for Cruz to show his stuff and there’s no doubt that he impressed a lot of people.
I also tend to believe that conservatives want their politicians to be as tough as nails and capable of withstanding the forces of Hell.
Nothing “happened” to Leno. He’s always been a liberal democrat. His wife is a psycho feminazi witch who had her tubes tied, too bad, he always seemed to me to be the kind of guy who would want kids. But they would’ve been raised commie so I guess it was all for the best.
Now if you’re saying Leno was harsher towards Cruz than other Republicans who have been on his show, I can’t say, but the reason, if that’s true, isn’t hard to figure out.
I thought the entire episode was a disaster...Leno was like a machine gun, working from a list, obviously compiled by a bunch of his leftist looney-tune cohorts..he barely had time to came up for air. Cruz was calm in the face of leno’s attacks, but hardly had the ability to shine under such uncalled for circumstances. It made me uncomfortabe just viewing this. You can put a fork in leno as far as I’m concerned.
There was a post the other night on FR - arguing with a liberal is like playing chess with a pigeon - it was the perfect analogy.
What makes anyone believe that Jay Leno is other than a Democrat toady?
I watched it rather than going asleep. I was impressed by the applause Cruz got as he walked on and made his point. Leno’s come backs didn’t bring out any wild response from the audience. The louder applause was on Cruz’s comments. Leno’s answers sounded like talking points from the WH.
Ted Cruz did very well.
Now if youre saying Leno was harsher towards Cruz than other Republicans who have been on his show...I'm saying that I was in the studio audience when Jay interviewed Sarah Palin (once) and Ann Coulter (twice),
Jay may be a LEFTY, but he's also an ENTERTAINER......and he knows that a big chunk of his audience in Middle America is conservative.
After some obligatory jabs at Sarah and Ann, Jay was warm and friendly with BOTH of them,So, I'm just trying to figure out what happened THIS TIME.
NOT the partisan hack who kept interrupting Senator Cruz with attempted "gotcha" questions.
My preliminary analysis is that the Left FEARS Ted CruzIt appeared to me that this time around, SOMEONE (probably ValJar, the Night Stalker)
more than they feared Sarah Palin after she lost, and
more than they fear Ann Coulter, who isn't running for anything.
At least that's the "spin" that I am considering for my "after action" thread. ;)
When was it announced that Sen. Cruz would be on Leno's Tonight Show?
OCTOBER 30, 2013
When did the news of Cruz' father's statement "send 0bama back to Kenya" come out?
OCTOBER 31, 2013
Leading up to 2016 and Hillary, the media will HYPE 'progressive Christie' while CONDEMNING conservative Cruz. This is 'McCain vs. Obama' all over again. The media selects the Republican candidate, the Republicans don't.
After watching the videos, I was disgusted with Leno’s attitude .. but then when I read the Wikipedia report, I found out that Cruz wrote most of the legal paperwork for “Bush v. Gore”.
NO WONDER THE LEFT HATES CRUZ SO MUCH. It was Cruz’s work that helped Bush to win.
Somebody definitely let Leno know to be tough with Cruz .. but Cruz didn’t give in to Leno’s stupid questions. And, I’m surprised .. because lately (ever since he announced he was leaving the program) Leno has been dishing out a lot of stuff on the admin. But, considering the network the program was on, maybe a network person laid down the law; but I’m surprised Leno would feel pressured now.
I stopped finding him entertaining years ago and always knew he was a huge lefty.
He only seems tamer when put side by side with Letterman, who is nuts.
The sweat inside one of Ted Cruz’s shoes is smarter than Leno and Barry together.
The fix was in when he made Senator Cruz his “second” guest.
I don’t recall whether Cruz was also listed second from the first announcement.
...arguing with a liberal is like playing chess with a pigeonTHAT is the kind of "word picture" that I am looking for!
Thanks, DefeatCorruption!Ideally, though, I want a metaphor that allows Jay Leno to save face.
Lefty or not, Jay Leno is not NEARLY as bad as David Letterman,If he is allowed to justify his attacks on Senator Cruz as being comparable to
and Jay still tells some of the best "Obama" jokes!
You are damn right in your analysis.
Palin despite what some believe, never appeared to seriously considering running for President, and in any case had ALREADY been severely damaged by the media. Half the country thinks she’s Tina Fey’s impersonation of her.
Cruz is the “face” of Congressional Conservatives right now, a POTUS contender, and a non-Anglo Saxon Republican. It’s their #1 priority to ridicule, marginalize, and destroy him.
Cruz is very impressive on the fly.
Leno runs with the Lib/Rat crowd and he’s being himself. He says stuff that he thinks the Smart People who Run Things like to hear.
Like most of them, that means he gets wee-wee’d up by conservatives, especially “uppity” ones who occasionally fail to drag their knuckles and have most of their teeth.
Did you REALLY expect something different?
