Ted Cruz: If Dems are right and we’re doomed to fail, why are they screaming so loudly and getting
The Right Scoop ^ | 10/3/13 | The Blaze

Posted on 10/03/2013 7:06:09 PM PDT by Nachum

Ted Cruz was on with Glenn Beck this morning and made the following excellent point:

“If they [Democrats] are right — that what we’re doing is hopeless, is doomed to fail, which mind you they’ve been telling us for months — then why are they screaming so loudly? Why are they getting so personal? Why are they so filled with hate and fear? And it’s because the American people are mobilized, are passionate and energized and even worse, understand that Obamacare is hurting millions of Americans, and that has the Left terrified out of their minds.”

Honestly we should’ve seen this coming under the Bush admin.

GHWB's advocacy of The Third Way should've been one of our clues.

Not too far, Mike Lee is right there. If you listened to him during the filibuster, he went after the SCOTUS with a vengence. Well deserved I might add.

Not sure if it’s smarts that are lacking, as much as it’s the will and grit to be bold and confident.

So did Hitler and Mussolini

But, fortunately, unlike Hitler and Mussolini, Zero needs a teleprompter.

Here for example, from March 1929, watch Benito address "the American nation" "from Alaska to Florida":

Would that our President's Austrian be as good as Mussolini's English!

Well...I’ve always believed it is they that allowed the country to become Communist in the first place.

This is one the big reasons I’m not a fan of immigrants from Mexico. They work hard, yes. But they will come over here and end up voting for the same exact stuff that ended up causing them to flee Mexico in the first place.

Good catch.

Also, before taking power Hitler was a community organizer and Mussolini was a journalist.

I thought O-care wasn’t constitutionally passed but was instead ‘deemed to have passed’ by madame Pelosi. Maybe that’s good enough for some around here?

Actually it was passed as a budget resolution measure. That was the only way the DemocRATS could get the vote count.

I firmly believe that when his term is over, Barack Obama will live the rest of his life as the most hated and despised person in America. Everywhere he goes he will be booed and hissed at for what he has done. He will never sleep soundly again.

Democrats are Communists. Trevor Loudon knows the score. Keep pounding them.

Yes, you are wrong. You should do an Internet search for the USSC decision and read it yourself.

Roberts had to claim that the penalties for not having Obamacare are taxes. The law itself says they are penalties, not taxes. IOW, Roberts had to unilaterally change their wording of the law to decide what he decided.

Also, there is at least one lawsuit working its way through the pipeline that challenges the way in which Reid took an unrelated bill that the House had sent to the Senate, deleted everything in that bill and substituted all of the Obamacare text in its place.

The Congress shall have Power ...To ... provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States

That would cover the military and agencies such as EPA, FDA, USDA, and CDC that work to ensure security and safe food and water. It is hard to argue that the government taking over an entire business sector falls into the category of "general welfare."

Far too often, people misinterpret the general welfare clause as meaning that the government should provide permanent dole, or that the government should be everyone's sugar daddy.

The longer the Repubs stall, the worse Obamacare looks as people find out more about it.

As Mel Gibson said in "The Patriot": "Hold the line! Hold the Line!"

Great idea re CR. The first thing out of Boehner’s mouth should BE a) to remind everyone of the employer mandate waiver by fiat b) that the implementation of ACA has been incompetent c)that it will cost more and you will get less.

Boehner may be a good behind-the-scenes guy, but I wish he would delegate the media coverage to a more dynamic House member.
Has Cruz been making the rounds like last week? I don’t watch TV- he hasn’t been back on Rush although it sounds like he was on Beck.

Sorry, but it states CONGRESS shall, NOT Department XYZ. There is nothing from We the People that allows Congress to abdicate their powers nor responsibilities that We have bestowed upon them.

Regardless, one clause (general welfare) would NOT (can not) supersede the whole of the Constitution as laid out.

I am a life-long conservative republican who -ahem - was a Nixonette, way back when....
If this stand off is betrayed by the pubs, I will sending my money to the Tea Party organization (even though they don’t take on social issues which I think are important) and put the Gadsen flag sticker on my car proudly. Already we send no money to the RNC, only specific campaigns...
It’ll be a sad day in this house.....

Far from the Tea Party losing on this, it seems that the Democrats, MSM, Obama are the one's back up in a corner ready to say " Uncle " .

Ted Cruz isn't going to broadcast this, but I will: there is a strategy designed specifically for the 24/7 news cycle, i.e. the MSM cannot stick with a storyline for more than 3 days.

In short, the media mantra has been, the "Ted Cruz Government Shutdown." The sheer weight of the evidence is collapsing all around Obama and the Democrats: park closures, unwillingness to negotiate, etc.

While Cruz gets it, the GOPe doesn't...they're running around trashing Ted and the people that put them in the majority in the House...the Tea Party.

A few more days, and the narrative will change, so long as we keep the pressure on the GOPe to stand firm. The media is becoming exhausted in their attempt to prop up the Obama Administration. The Average American knows bull$hit when they see it, and they're seeing it 24/7.

The Average American doesn't care a whit about a "clean CR", particularly when the House sends to the Senate bills to fund the VA and keep the parks open.

It is hard to argue that the government taking over an entire business sector falls into the category of "general welfare."

In the 1819 case M'Culloch v. Maryland, Chief Justice Marshall said in his opinion ... "Let the end be legitimate, let it be within the scope of the Constitution, and all means which are appropriate, which are plainly adapted to that end, which are not prohibited, but consistent with the letter and spirit of the Constitution, are constitutional."

Please note: I am not for Obamacare, but it was passed by Congress and signed into law by Obama. So we are - temporarlly - stuck with a lousy law.

Since I only give money to Tea Party candidates now my only caveat will be that they run independently. No more Pub party. Why have a Pub party if they do whatever the Rats tell them.

To avoid a split vote that favors the demonrats, I keep my Party affiliation in my state to vote in the primaries...
Though for 2012, the only choices we had were Romney and Paul...guess which state I’m in....*sigh*

Yes but, the branches were given a set of unique powers. The senate has control of treaty and appointments. The house controls the purse strings. Revenue. Taxing authority.

If Øbamacare is a tax, then the house controls it. Or should at least in theory. These days the Constitution doesn’t seem to mean much to some people. Ahem! Obama!

Now he can call the agency specific CRs bipartisan. They need to hold out until at least Monday/Tuesday. Money is tight in the Democrat community.
