‘We’re Winning’: Ted Cruz on the Latest in Washington Amid the ‘Government Shutdown’
The Blaze ^ | October 3, 2013 | Erica Ritz

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.”

“We’re winning the debate,” the senator remarked. “That’s 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? It’s 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.”.....

When does Obama’s teleprompter get shut off due to lack of money?

Just got a form from my accounts for my business. Seems any business with sales volume over 500K (that’s all?) is required to give to each employee. Form tilted Form B.
No penalties for the current year but non compliance in the future will be $ 100.000 per day. Must explain health care benefits.

Senate Democrats block reopening of NIH, national parks (Reid disparages Cruz on Senate floor) "...........The debate on the Senate floor turned poisonous for a few minutes when Mr. Reid verbally savaged Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican who wasn’t on the chamber floor but who Mr. Reid said was pulling the strings on the GOP strategy and encouraging the GOP-dominated House’s hardline stance.

“Senator Cruz is now joint Speaker. He lectures the House,” Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, said.

Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, firing a warning shot back at Mr. Reid by reading a passage from Senate rules that forbids disparaging the motives of fellow senators."

It's true, the shut down along with the filibuster has brought attention to the disaster that Obamacare is and will become.

The bad optics at the WWII memorial and the parks have not gone the way the democrat/media complex have wanted them to go.

As long as something doesn't come up, like the woman who tried to ram things being a TEA Party leader, this is at least a draw for conservatives, and its trending towards a win. I love the deranged way the democrats are going, watching them melt down is the first political fun we've had in a long time.

We were winning in 1995, too, until Dole stabbed Gingrich in the back and decided to cave. If it appears that we are gaining momentum and the people are with us, just wait for a few RINOs who are not on our side to try to do what Dole did.

He is right! My good FRiends here need to look real close at Boehners actions...all have been right on target. Boehner and Cruz have had a long relationship...this will work out if we stick together. There are about 70 or so solid conservatives in the house and many more leaners.

Boehner has been a disappointment on several fronts but he has the message now.

Sometimes we preach to the choir here...which is fine but I suggest we go after other targets.

No but I’m getting updates from “Don’t Fund It.com” (I had signed the petition). The clock is now counting the days the government has been closed (had been counting the days until it closed). Americans can still sign the petition. It was 1.5M during his 21 hour time on the floor. It is now well over 2M.

Boehner I believe has decided NOT to run for speaker again!! I believe
he is truly trying to save the country and no longer gives a rats behind
about his career! I have been VERY surprised at his standing firm!!! I
believe he is as fed up with Obummer as WE are! The guy is a snake
and it has taken Boehner some time to learn there is no trusting this slime
ball’s word, nothing more than a backstabber and crook!!!

Time to take all but $495K of your buisness underground. Do not comply.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) told Glenn Beck...Beck made an excellent point this morning on his show - now is the time for all those pushing for support of Cruz et al and what's happening to get on Facebook and Twitter and flood their representative's and the news organization's addresses with endorsements of what the 'pubs are doing and criticisms of Reid, Obama and the rest - hopefully there are already Tea Party communications systems at work on this - out-propaganda the MSM propaganda machines with conservative social media.....

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.

Just to correct Senator Cruz. While he absolutely correct in the use of WE, the only winners here will be him, Senator Lee and the other TeaParty members. NOT the Republican Party.
I am very sure that in following a long and cherished tradition of that party, the GOPe will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
In a way, it kinda makes me happy.

*The more shrill it gets, the more scared they are.*

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!!!”
