re: Ted Cruz = Joe McCarthy


By the way, the Joe McCarthy talking point is sticking. It's all over the leftist blogs this morning.

More Alinsky tactics at work.

I'm not worried about hamfisted and reckless demagogues like Cruz. His actions will hurt him in the long run. Rubio is much better than Cruz IMO.

This, and I'm also going to assume he is pro-Israel, since trackfan and CT are together in this thread.

I can't speak for CT, but I much prefer senators who are pro-America than pro-Israel. I suppose you were offended by this Hagel quote: "I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States senator."

Those aren't sufficient grounds to block a nominee. And why would spending cuts be so appalling to a Tea Party conservative?

How about the fact that the man said he doesn't known enough about the operation and programs of the DoD and that he will learn on the job.

Hagel is unqualified for the position and if you think the only reason Republicans are blocking him is because he was nominated by Obama then why have all of his other cabinet appointees, including a fricking tax cheat for the head of Treasury, confirmed?

Didn't hear it or read about it. Not offended by it. My comment was solely directed at the "sides" specifically in this thread.

There is one main issue on which you and CT agree, and even when the thread is not directly about it, when you two are in agreement, I am sure the basis is Israel. Nothing personal, just pointing out the predictability and the pointlessness of bashing Cruz for anything other than the reason why you really dislike him.

Though I generally agree with CT's foreign policy, we have very little in common when it comes to domestic policty, but I'm sure that I have areas agreement with virtually everyone on this board. What's the big deal?

What do you think of Cruz' penchant for asking do-you-still-beat-your-wife type questions and deliberately editing a video of a Hagel interview in a dishonest way in order to mislead people about Hagel's views?







ABOUT DAMN TIME there is a fighter using the progressives' own tactics on them. You have to fight dirty bastards with dirty techniques. It's fair for the left/progressives to slander/parse/propagandize, so let's GO CRUZ !!!

At least I give you credit for recognizing Cruz' hackery for what it is, as opposed to GRTiger who is evidently as big a fan of this type of McCarthyism as you are but won't admit it.

Whether you disagree with Cruz or not, the idea of a professional TV commentator drawing comparisons to McCarthy, Hitler or Satan is intellectually lazy.



Agreed, but its also lazy to question a Vietnam veterans patriotism by accusing him of taking money from extremist.

So, it's impossible for a Vietnam vet to take money from extremists? Really?

Are all Vietnam veterans patriots? What about the ones that supposedly raped and murdered innocent civilians? What about the ones that lied about others committing those atrocities?

Well, did he? What is wrong with asking questions. He wouldn't have looked so utterly pathetic if he had prepared for some tough questions.

re: Ted Cruz = Joe McCarthy


It's laughable that Cruz would accuse Chuck Hagel and John Kerry, who between them have five purple hearts, a bronze star and a silver star, of being "less than ardent fans of the U.S. military". Here's a good take on Cruz from The Hill:

quote:

The support for Hagel was offered by former Sens. John Warner (R-Va.) and Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), both onetime Armed Services Committee chairmen. The cheap shot slander of war hero Hagel was offered by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whose service in the Senate is measured in days, not decades, and who was properly reprimanded directly by Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and indirectly by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who vouched for the intense patriotism of Hagel.

The Senate Armed Services Committee has a long and proud tradition of bipartisan statesmanship that was violated by the Tea Party freshman senator who tried to smear a war hero who not only served his country with courage but also has battled for veterans and military families in Texas and nationally for a generation. . . . .


In Texas, veteran voters know that Hagel is enthusiastically supported by the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and groups speaking for veterans of Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Presumably while Hagel was battling as a decorated war hero and fighting for all living veterans, Cruz was being cheered at Tea Party seminars and eating popcorn at war movies.

Cruz's performance at Armed Services was disgraceful and appalling. He violated the proud tradition of a great bipartisan committee and did no service to the countless veterans and war heroes of Texas and the nation who know that Hagel is a great friend and member of the band of brothers and sisters who serve Texas and America with valor.

Ted Cruz is an image writ large of the truly stupid and hysterical heart of the tea party.

Of course it's possible. One man's extremist is another man's moderate, but Cruz implied that Hagel took money from enemies of the U.S. and that's something altogether different.

Why is this necessarily a bad thing? Clear example of what's wrong with American politics.

I think it's about time we have some elected officials with the balls to challenge or "violate" the "proud traditions".

I'm not posting my credentials on a public forum. However, notice I didn't say that Cruz himself is stupid. What I did say is that Cruz is the image of the hysterical idiots who elected him.
