Posted on 10/03/2013 12:00:24 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) told Glenn Beck during a radio interview Thursday that conservatives are winning the battle in Washington over Obamacare and the government shutdown.
Were winning the debate, the senator remarked. Thats why they are scared and they are attacking us. The more shrill it gets, the more scared they are.
.....Why are they screaming so loudly? Why are they so personal? Why are they so filled with hate and fear? Its because the American people are mobilized, are passionate and energized, he said. And even worse, [they] understand that Obamacare is hurting millions of Americans, and that has the left terrified out of their minds......

Is it tilted towards the left?
What I recall at the time is that Dole, without consulting with Gingrich, went to the press after a few days of MSM horror stories about the shut down. Dole told them that “enough was enough” and he was going to pass a spending bill along the lines of what Clinton was demanding and end this terrible shutdown. it was splashed on all the headlines and lead all the news casts. Gingrich was cut off at the knees. His support in the house collapsed and he had to go along with what Dole was doing. This was also what led to Clinton being reelected, instead of losing in a landslide, which he was on track to do before that. Dole screwed us all big time. Now the myth of that event is that Republicans took it in the shorts.
Good point. Hope somebody sticks a sock in Peter King’s mouth.
Former prosecutor versus former community organizer....not a fair fight.
Then a gun incident happens.
Probably someone that doesn’t like the new health care law...
It is up to each one of us to be on the net and the blogs and the social networks, supporting Cruz and our conservatives! We have computers right in front of us,,there is no reason NOT to!
I've noticed that this happens in nearly every debate that I have with a Leftist. It shows that they know deep inside that they are wrong and are uncomfortable with their own lies.
Gloria on All in the Family did it in much the same way as modern day Leftist do:
“DAAA—DDEEEEEEEEEEE eeee EEEE!!!”
Oh don’t worry. The rats would never use the IRS, NSA, FBI, BATF and soon, our healthcare records to intimidate their enemies.
This kind of sh!t always seems to happen. Anything to distract. Just a random act of violence. AGAIN!
Thank you for that bit of history regarding Dole.
McCain is our new Dole. They are like the damn Sith lords; you’re never rid of them.
oooooo Johnny Cornyn now being bad a** reading a passage.
Hey John How about reminding Reid on the floor what a pile of sleaze he is. Hey one can disparage the other.
What a useless republipussy
We will do it!
As I get older, my stories of things I remember are now becoming history.
I was lucky to be among the participants. Cruz was speaking and magnificent as usual but I could not stay on the phone
Ted Cruz is dangerous to Obama and the main stream media because he can cut through their rhetorical bias. On three different occasions, with three different MSM Obamabot interviewers, Ted Cruz smiled and said:
“I REJECT THE PREMISE OF YOUR QUESTION.” Outstanding!
He destroys their line of biased inquiry and presents the issues in his own way, using the assumptions of the Constitution, free markets, freedom, liberty, and Western Civilization.
That’s how you stop the Marxists: on page one by rejecting their assumptions. Cruz is a sophisticated intellectual who can communicate complex issues simply and powerfully. He is very threatening to the totalitarian crowd.
Cruz is exactly right.
And to think that about 6 weeks ago, Mark Levin and Ted Cruz broached the idea as “our last chance to stop Obamacare.”
I remember Krauthammer and the rest of the pundits saying it couldn’t be done.
I’d rather risk going down fighting with Cruz than side with the bunch of spineless pansy suckup RINO’s we have had to live with these last few years. Keep talking Ted!
God Bless Ted Cruz!
