Ted Cruz, The Future of the GOP

With the pre­mière of my Syn­di­cated Talk show moved up a week I didn’t even con­sider going to the National Review event in DC last week, (unlike Stacy McCain and the 4 Tier Crew) .

I see why they went though because you hear stuff like this from Ted Cruz:

The first thing I would urge to every Repub­li­can in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives is stop read­ing the New York Times,” he said. “Can­cel your subscription.”

Lis­ten, the media is going to tell you — I’ll sum it up, the next two years of head­lines from the New York Times: ‘The Democ­rats Are Right,’ ‘Aban­don Con­ser­v­a­tive Prin­ci­ples’ and ‘Aban­don Hope All Ye Who Enter,’” Cruz said. “Their answer — and it will be their pre­scrip­tion on every sin­gle fight — here is what con­ser­v­a­tives and Repub­li­cans need to do: aban­don your prin­ci­ples and become Democrats.”

This actu­ally could be extended to almost every branch of the MSM as they take their lead from the NYT.

For exam­ple If you were wait­ing to hear about Robert Menen­dez and under­age hook­ers (or even Menen­dez and his being vic­tim­ized by a donor in NJ who gave him $97k ille­gally) you wouldn’t have heard it on Morn­ing Joe. If you had an inter­est in Saxby Cham­b­liss deci­sion to not run in 2014 that wasn’t a story.

Sarah Palin depar­ture from Fox, now THAT’s news.

Of course it’s for rea­sons like this that places like Stacy McCain’s site exists, so after groups like CNN tell us the Hagel nom­i­na­tion is all locked up that we can hear about delays

But back to Cruz the left will tell you who they fear and two newer pieces on oppo­site sides of the polit­i­cal fence illus­trate this. First at the National Review:

In the past week alone, Cruz has tan­gled with vet­eran Demo­c­ra­tic spin-​master Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Meet the Press, sent a tongue-​in-​cheek let­ter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, intro­duced leg­is­la­tion to fully repeal Oba­macare, and recorded “no” votes on major items, includ­ing Hur­ri­cane Sandy relief, rais­ing the debt ceil­ing, fil­i­buster reform, and the con­fir­ma­tion of John Kerry for sec­re­tary of state. He also made head­lines with his aggres­sive inter­ro­ga­tion of prospec­tive defense sec­re­tary Chuck Hagel.

Addi­tion­ally, Cruz’s quick rise to promi­nence appears to have offended the sen­si­bil­i­ties of the polit­i­cal press. Dur­ing Hagel’s con­fir­ma­tion hear­ing before the Sen­ate Armed Ser­vices Com­mit­tee last week, I over­heard mul­ti­ple groans from other jour­nal­ists cov­er­ing the event when­ever Cruz began a pointed line of ques­tion­ing. On Twit­ter, they noted their exas­per­a­tion in more col­or­ful ways.

And Mother Jones:

Last Octo­ber, at the Fam­ily Research Council’s Val­ues Voter Sum­mit in Wash­ing­ton, Cruz brought down the house with a story about his father’s appear­ance at a Texas tea party rally. At that event, Rafael Cruz, a pro­gram­mer turned pas­tor, had launched into a lengthy dis­course on an inspi­ra­tional young leader who’d come to power on a mes­sage of hope and change. “He never once men­tioned the words ‘Barack Obama’; he sim­ply described what Fidel Cas­tro did,” Ted Cruz said. Ted’s style bore all the trap­pings of a pol­ished debater, every­thing scripted down to the hand ges­ture. He clasped and unclasped his hands and, for empha­sis, brought them crash­ing down like a con­cert pianist. “Now what does it say about you that you hear what Cas­tro did and you think imme­di­ately that it must be Barack Obama?”

Ted Cruz has argued before the Supreme Court, he has a his­tory that informs him of the dan­gers of social­ism and dem­a­gogues. He has directly defeated the estab­lish­ment types in the GOP that hope to restrain him and as a His­panic out of Texas rep­re­sents a threat almost as great to Democ­rats as Miguel Estrada was but unlike Estrada who could have a path to the Supreme Court blocked in the sen­ate, Ted Cruz was ELECTED to the sen­ate from a safe red state.

As a said, the left will tell you who they fear, you know Cruz is feared when the MSM finds itself will­ing to lion­ize Rubio as a con­trast. Expect the daily attacks on Cruz from Joe Scar­brough et-​al to con­tinue over the next 3 – 5 years to cre­ate a narrative.

How Cruz deals with these attacks will tell you how ready he is.

With the premiere of my Syndicated Talk show moved up a week I didn’t even consider going to the National Review event in DC last week, (unlike Stacy McCain and the 4 Tier Crew) .

I see why they went though because you hear stuff like this from Ted Cruz:

“The first thing I would urge to every Republican in the House of Representatives is stop reading the New York Times,” he said. “Cancel your subscription.”

“Listen, the media is going to tell you—I’ll sum it up, the next two years of headlines from the New York Times: ‘The Democrats Are Right,’ ‘Abandon Conservative Principles’ and ‘Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter,’” Cruz said. “Their answer—and it will be their prescription on every single fight—here is what conservatives and Republicans need to do: abandon your principles and become Democrats.”

This actually could be extended to almost every branch of the MSM as they take their lead from the NYT.

For example If you were waiting to hear about Robert Menendez and underage hookers (or even Menendez and his being victimized by a donor in NJ who gave him $97k illegally) you wouldn’t have heard it on Morning Joe. If you had an interest in Saxby Chambliss decision to not run in 2014 that wasn’t a story.

Sarah Palin departure from Fox, now THAT’s news.

Of course it’s for reasons like this that places like Stacy McCain’s site exists, so after groups like CNN tell us the Hagel nomination is all locked up that we can hear about delays

But back to Cruz the left will tell you who they fear and two newer pieces on opposite sides of the political fence illustrate this. First at the National Review:

In the past week alone, Cruz has tangled with veteran Democratic spin-master Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Meet the Press, sent a tongue-in-cheek letter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, introduced legislation to fully repeal Obamacare, and recorded “no” votes on major items, including Hurricane Sandy relief, raising the debt ceiling, filibuster reform, and the confirmation of John Kerry for secretary of state. He also made headlines with his aggressive interrogation of prospective defense secretary Chuck Hagel.

Additionally, Cruz’s quick rise to prominence appears to have offended the sensibilities of the political press. During Hagel’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, I overheard multiple groans from other journalists covering the event whenever Cruz began a pointed line of questioning. On Twitter, they noted their exasperation in more colorful ways.

And Mother Jones:

Last October, at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, Cruz brought down the house with a story about his father’s appearance at a Texas tea party rally. At that event, Rafael Cruz, a programmer turned pastor, had launched into a lengthy discourse on an inspirational young leader who’d come to power on a message of hope and change. “He never once mentioned the words ‘Barack Obama'; he simply described what Fidel Castro did,” Ted Cruz said. Ted’s style bore all the trappings of a polished debater, everything scripted down to the hand gesture. He clasped and unclasped his hands and, for emphasis, brought them crashing down like a concert pianist. “Now what does it say about you that you hear what Castro did and you think immediately that it must be Barack Obama?”

Ted Cruz has argued before the Supreme Court, he has a history that informs him of the dangers of socialism and demagogues. He has directly defeated the establishment types in the GOP that hope to restrain him and as a Hispanic out of Texas represents a threat almost as great to Democrats as Miguel Estrada was but unlike Estrada who could have a path to the Supreme Court blocked in the senate, Ted Cruz was ELECTED to the senate from a safe red state.

As a said, the left will tell you who they fear, you know Cruz is feared when the MSM finds itself willing to lionize Rubio as a contrast. Expect the daily attacks on Cruz from Joe Scarbrough et-al to continue over the next 3-5 years to create a narrative.

How Cruz deals with these attacks will tell you how ready he is.
