Skip to comments.Outing the Progressive Republicans Attacking Cruz
Posted on 09/23/2013 7:21:03 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
Palin is right… time to cowboy up and out the Progressives on the Right who are targeting Ted Cruz. Weasels all.
After Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace revealed that GOP leaders had contacted him with opposition research on Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) ahead of Cruz appearance on the show, at least a couple of conservatives opined Sunday that Wallace should reveal which Republicans dropped dime.
One of my personal heroes, Mark Levin, also backed Palin with a resounding ‘you go girl!’
Palin evidently has the missing set that our Republican leaders misplaced. She came out on Fox News and called the RINOs out. Using descriptive and accurate terms such as “gutless” and “rudderless,” the Alaskan political maven slapped the Progressives on the right side of the aisle with an Alaskan trout concerning the fight over Obamacare. Mama Grizzly vigorously stated that Conservatives should get behind Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in defunding this regulatory Sharia-enhanced monstrosity. Screw political popularity — do what Americans overwhelmingly demand and starve the beast you spineless asshats.
In true Palin fashion, she made it clear her disgust with GOP elephants that would actually turn on a senator who is fulfilling his campaign promises.
Here come the Tea Party giants led from Alaska and Texas, closely followed by Conservatives across the nation. Hear the call of Palin:
We ask as an American people collectively that they not wave a white flag and just capitulate and give in to the liberals and to those who want this socialized program of health care coverage in our nation, Palin says.
If the Republicans surrender, they will go down as goats and traitors to the American people. It will become apparent it was far more tempting to align with the enemy, line their pockets and lick the boots of a dictator who would submit a free nation to something very akin to the Jizya tax for Dhimmis.
I gotta tell ya, if Cruz has earned the intense dislike of McCain, I may just adopt him.
From The Blaze comes news that warms my heart and lifts my soul:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been ruffling feathers since his arrival in Washington this year. Including some on his own side of the aisle. In fact, according to a new profile in GQ magazine, the Texas senator has earned the intense dislike of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
He f***ing hates Cruz, an adviser to Sen. McCain told GQs Jason Zengerle. Hes just offended by his style.
But it appears that the contentious relationship cuts both ways. Cruz has his own words for the senior Arizona senator.
I dont know a conservative who didnt feel embarrassed voting in 2006 or 2008, Cruz said. I think the Republican Party lost its way. We didnt stand for the principles were supposed to believe in.
Recall that McCain mocked Sens. Cruz and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) after the Kentucky senators 13-hour filibuster over the White Houses drone policy, referring to the two senators and those who agree with them as wackobirds.
More recently, McCain has criticized Cruz for his efforts to defund Obamacare, suggesting that attempts to do away with President Barack Obamas health care law are not rational.
I can tell you that in the U.S. Senate, will not repeal or defund Obamacare. We will not, McCain told CNN. And to think we can is not rational.
Wow, it would seem the esteemed Senator from Arizona has had his Progressive feathers ruffled somewhat, eh? Good. Just retire already, would ya?
Pelosi is saying the cupboard is bare and there’s nothing left to cut in the budget… well, you can start with Obamacare. It’s a good place to start. Then move on to the pork and graft that Pelosi seems to take for granted. And it is way past time to out every Republican who is attacking Cruz. We want names and we will remember, as will history.
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware this is a high-volume ping list!
The only thing that surprises me is how many are attacking Cruz. More than I expected. Sad.
Love the Mama Grizzly when she gets mad. She is fearless and she calls out the gutless weasels.
They are way too close as are many pundits to politics. They are underestimating the appeal these people have to the tax paying public. Underestimating and hoping for status quo. Way too comfortable
Cruz et al are used to being outside of a comfort zone because they work and they are going to stay in it.
They are tornado-ing DC.
My prediction, using my tornado metaphor, folks will end up like the witch sister or Dorothy depending on whether they fight it with their evil ways, ride along and figure out the game plan
McCain is furious that Cruz gets a minute of airtime. HE is the voice of the Party don’t you know!
During the Vietnam War, Hanoi Jane gleefully jumped on the Vietcong's anti-aircraft gun.
Today, McCain reaches across the aisle and gleefully jumps on the DemocRATs' political anti-aircraft gun firing on Cruz...
Time to start calling him Hanoi John?
Let me guess.
John Mother ****in’ McShame.
Chris Wallace needs to come clean. He is nothing but a soft ball chunker for the GOPe and tries to snare the conservatives that visit his show.
He stepped off in it and now. His butt has been called out on the carpet by real people with real values. Let’s see how he responds.
Damn sure time to start calling him the EX-Senator from Arizona.
Trashing Cruz? Look no further than Karl Rove, leader of the “zombie from the crypt” GOP RINO movement. Rove and his buggers have lost 2 presidential elections for the GOP but they are still listened to by GOP wing nut RINOs?
Its the height of idiot kakistoracy.
The future of the GOP, if it has any at all, is with Cruz, Paul, West and Palin.
Hey Onyx, you may want to ping the Sarah Palin Ping List.
Love it! Sarah and TGO join forces to call Lib Chris Wallace out for his cavalier statement about Cruz. Go get 'em!
Oh how I hate this man, I could count the waysbit why? I wish this mistake would have never left Saigon. In many ways I think he never dud leave.
Well I’m offended by that “reach across the aisle”
BS . .attaboy Juan, you just did a bang up job beating a vulnerable, incompetent, racist far leftist Obama. Even the huge break you got from Joe The Plumber exchange, you still couldn’t go after that POS could you? You’re a LOSER . .GTHO of politics. War Hero or not, you’re killing your country now.
McShamey needs to just go away. He should NEVER have been the nominee. Frankly I don’t get why Arizona keeps electing him.
His behavior over the years confirms all the unkind things ever said about him
I think we all know who they are. They call themselves the Republican Leadership, when in reality they are the Republican fellators of Obama.
MAybe thats why McShame’s jaw is swollen.
That’s what I said from the start of this Senate kerfluffel: If there are no names there is no FREEKIN story. Name names of shut the bleep up.
LOL -- she's got 'em hanging up in her smoke shed out back, along with 600 pounds of prime venison.
Does that mean you like the way the game is played now, and you just want conservatives to shut up?
That's how that sounds.
He wasn't a "war hero" (see Carlos Hathcock and Roy Benevidez), he was a prison-camp survivor. There's a difference.
I thought he was waaay too friendly with the North Vietnamese pukes after the war was over, btw. He and Skerry.
