I saw this interview....
...and wanted to see just what he would say...
....and then wondered how I ever considered him a viable candidate
Yes there definitely is something NIXON’esque about TED.
Insulting person with the ironically pleasant name of Valentine.
Damned link doesn’t work. Maybe someone else can fix it.
Yes. I’ve never heard of this person. Just appeared like a Medusa-head on my screen!
Call him Raparel
He didn't. But he didn't say they misled him, either, and he didn't "blame" them. This was a blameless screw up that happen from time to time here in the real world.
I'm sorry if I was rude, but I've been worn pretty thin by the continual lies and distortions of the Trump crowd. If any Trump supporters use the forum to lie, distort and vilify and they get banned, then they got justice.
Just one problem after another with “Surging Ted.”
Just from the referenced post: "Highly intelligent people don't rely on others."
They do it all the time. Cruz does it, Trump does it, I do it and I am pretty durn sure you do it. We ALL do it. All the time.
Another: "Isn't this equivalent to voting on the bill before reading it?"
No, it's not. Cruz knew well what was in each bill and how he intended voting. His staff told him the next vote up was on cloture on another matter - NOT the crop insurance bill. They were mistaken. No biggie. Cruz learned of the mistake from Senator Roberts and fixed it in three minutes flat. How is this anything at all like voting on a bill that one hasn't even read? Hint: It's not.
Now, maybe these statements of yours were just little political fibs, and maybe I over-reacted, but I tell you I have been worn thin by the continual lies, distortions and vitriol from the Trump followers on Free Republic. I have never seen such a relentlessly intolerant and partisan group. They are so enamored of Trump that they apparently feel they have to lie for him even about the littlest things.
I don't mean to be rude, but I'd appreciate it if the Trump people could develop their advocacy in a way that didn't rely so much on dishonesty. he (Cruz) told Chris Wallace that underlings misled him Really? Highly intelligent people don't rely on others. They form their own opinions. Isn't this equivalent to voting on the bill before reading it? And who are these underlings (itself an insulting description)? Constitutional Conservatives were really letting Cruz have it about his position while he was hawking giving Obama more power with trade agreements.
But Donald's going to have smart people. Really, really smart people to make his policy decisions. Nobody smarter than these people. These people will be very smart, I tell you... very, very smart people...
When I say “highly intelligent people don’t rely on others to make their decisions”, I didn’t mean they don’t consult with others, the most qualified, to get their input. But at the end, they make the decision and take ownership of it. They don’t go back and blame others when it doesn’t work out.
When I complain about essential dishonesty, you question me: where?
I tell you, show you. What do you do? You come back to me with yet another essentially dishonest reply.
You never said "highly intelligent people don't rely on others to make their decisions," did you? You said "Highly intelligent people don't rely on others." Period. Nothing whatsoever in there about making decisions. There never was any issue about "decisions" in the first place either. The issue was about making a mistake, not a decision. Nobody made a decision to make a mistake. That's absurd.
Then you went on to say in your first comments "They form their own opinions." I didn't challenge this statement because it is true. Irrelevant to the discussion, but true nonetheless.
Your post has another instance of dishonesty, but this time it isn't yours. You quote another poster, a "miss marmelstein" who had said "On TPP, he told Chris Wallace that underlings misled him." I already have taken her to ask for the use of the word "misled". I should have also scolded her for the use of the insulting term "underlings" Ted Cruz never used that word. He referred to "my team" and "my staff" who were assisting him with that morning's votes. Miss Marmelstein was dishonestly trying to make people think that Ted Cruz referred to his staff in this kind of insulting way. He did not.
Nor did he "blame", or criticize them. Cruz merely explained in a clear and factual way what had happened. No blame asserted or fault assigned. A simple mistake was made and corrected. This sort of trivial thing happens millions of times a day, all over the world and folks don't get their knickers in a twist over it.
