54 Yeah the chattering class really abhor Cruz. The anecdote about Rubio was especially eye roll worthy. Maybe we can get a twofer lecture from Coulter again about what a genius dudes like McConnell are.

I didn't vote for the first time ever last year because the Republican candidates in my state were a joke and given the current GOP landscape I won't be voting for a president when the time comes. Romney, McCain, GW, Dole, and Bush the elder. Took a long time for me to reach the fuck you point towards the GOP but hey, fuck you GOP. Nominate another lily white squish.

115 I see Angeline Jolie had more surgery. Good for her. She has put the
welfare of her young children before everything else and knows as their
mother only she can raise them best.

--

She was getting slammed in the last thread over this decision. She watched her mom die from cancer. Her genetic testing told her she had a high probability of the same fate, so she took proactive measures. She may be cuckoo in other aspects to some people, but I would've made the same decision if my circumstances were hers. It would be terrifying to live with wondering when that cancer time bomb was going to go off.

Exactly. It reminded me of a Russian Orthodoz baptism I attended where they repeated everything three times, including the questions they ask the godparents. "Do you renounce the devil and accept Jesus Christ?" "Yes"
"Do you renounce the devil and accept Jesus Christ?" "Yes"
"Do you renounce the devil and accept Jesus Christ?" "Yes"
And so on.

I mean, they couldn't have planned it better at the DNC than to do it three times to really drive home their rejection.

126 Hopefully, if Cruz or Walker get squeezed out of the nomination so the establishment is able to establish Jeb as the nominee, Cruz and Walker will have the courage to combine and run as a Cruz/Walker ticket on a different party. They would get far more votes than anybody will expect, and if it results in a dem win-as we are constantly cautioned, well, at that point what difference does it make? Would president Jeb really be so preferable?

Cruz should probably just be in the 'warm and fuzzy' mode for the moment, to show he's not a monster while the Left screams that he is. Then, when the majority of voters who've never heard of him (or only accepted Jon Stewart's word) see they can listen to him, then he can start talking about things they need to hear.

So, he carefully copied every word in his distinctive left hand penmanship. I still have a copy of it. Then he pretended that he had written it himself.

225 I think most people agitating for a governor have a specific governor in mind (or maybe 2) and just don't want to say, "I want so-and-so, because he's my candidate."

I do *like* gubernatorial experience. That's a plus in the columns of Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Susana Martinez, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, and Jeb Bush.

But it's just one plus, and the negatives can easily outweigh it. See also: Chris Christie and Jeb Bush.

At the moment, I would vote Perry (based on record) over Cruz or Walker. Cruz and Walker are very, very close in my opinion, so I'm not sure which one comes in second. I would say "it's a tie" but at some point I may have to pick one over the other, and I'm not sure which one I'd pick yet.

But those three are my front-runners, and well ahead of the rest of the pack.

Yeah, it's still way early, but being first out of the starting gate gives him an opportunity to prepare the battlespace for '016.

229 Richard Fernandez/Belmont Club explains why the Left and the GOPe reacted so strongly to Cruz's announcement speech yesterday:

"His 'Imagine' speech seemed calculated to ridicule every Leftist
shibboleth with predictable effect. The Left lost no time
characterizing him as aChristian bigot, a patriarchal supremacist, an
uneducated, crazy, anti-poor, anti-abortion 'uppity loudmouth' besides
being that supreme abomination, a White Latino. If there's some sacred cow in the Leftist canon Ted Cruz has left undefiled, he will soon enough defile it. That's the plan.....

The intellectual establishment has predictably taken the bait. Bearded
so openly, they have sneered and they snorted and cast aspersions down
like ordure from their high towers upon the rabble beneath. That's
exactly the expected response and they've only confirmed Cruz's message....Ted
Cruz wanted the aristocracy to show its upturned face and that, it has
done."

Now the difference since Obama, is that government, as a whole, takes it for granted that it can lie to the people about whatever it wants to, whenever it wants, with impunity and I believe that, that is the separating tyranny and whatever it is that we had before.

She's way better than she used to be at interrupting.

But, if you watch Tantaros when she's mad, or frustrated, she does the same. I saw that come out on an O'Reilly segment recently, where O'Reilly was discussing a topic with Tantaros and some other person. She was dogged, and kept interrupting. Of course, I agreed every time she did!

316 I confess that I like Cooke for the most part. He is a good voice for the movement. But he comes of as the educated person who is so much better than you - and he tries to assert that point by bashing Palin and Cruz and comparing them to Joel Osteen.

By the way, what did Joel Osteen ever do to Cooke. He's not my kind of pastor - but he is an effective speaker who has built up a following and preaches good things. I'm a simple Catholic, but even I will stop and listen to Osteen on occasion. Why the Osteens of the world bother the likes of Cooke - I cannot tell.

I think Cooke is better than this. Just come out and say you don't like Cruz, his style, his "extremism" or what. But saying he needs to speak to people and not at people is a pointless and meaningless comment.

348 "Western Civ was nice.." This Chick writes that Ibn Kaldun should be studied more in Philosophy Class, and that no ideas are better than others. Ibn Kaldun had the idea that Islam was better than Christianity and Judaism because a Muslim could kill for his religion with the blessing of Islam while Christians and Jews could not. Ideas like Ibn Kaldun's would have created a culture which would not have tolerated anyone insulting the dominant religion. She should try that in Saudi Arabia.

"Cooke should stick to doodling 'Jeb 2016' on his trapper keeper."

I love this false equivalency, any criticism of Ted Cruz is tantamount to an endorsement of Jeb Bush.

FWIW, I agree with pretty much everything Cooke said. Even when I see eye-to-eye with Ted Cruz (which is more often than not), I personally find his style to be very grating and off-putting. A lot of people seem to like Cruz's style, so the only thing we can do is to see how it plays with the Republican electorate over the next year.
