Is Ted Cruz the new George W. Bush?

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with a satirical special report from one ‘Hans Jorgensen’ allegedly of the Washington Post, who just so happened to sound a lot like Stu. ‘Hans’ joined the program to discuss some important information regarding the implementation of Obamacare. As it turns out, he was really just interested in blaming Republicans, the TEA Party, and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for all of the country’s woes. What else is new?

Watch the parody news report below:

“This is how it will be,” Pat said.

“Of course it will be,” Glenn agreed. “[Cruz] will be the next George W. Bush. He will be the guy now that they blame for absolutely everything. And [the Democrats] are not alone. The Democrats are not the only ones doing this. The Republicans are doing this as well.”

The media, Democrats, and establishment Republicans have sought to paint Sen. Cruz as a villain who represents a small minority. Sen. Cruz, meanwhile, has made it clear that he has one mission in Washington, and that is to represent the people of Texas who elected him to this office.

While Capitol Police are investigating online threats made by an individual against the senator, Sen. Cruz returned home to Texas this weekend, where he received a rousing 8-minute standing ovation during an appearance at a San Antonio event.

“That’s pretty remarkable,” Glenn said.

From arsonists to anarchists, extremists to teabaggers, Tea Party members and supporters were called every name in the book throughout the government shutdown and debt ceiling debate. During an appearance on MSNBC Saturday morning, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) branded Tea Party members of Congress as “domestic enemies.”

“He has this so upside down. First of all, these people have never been in politics before? That’s what our Founders wanted. That’s what they wanted. They wanted real people,” Glenn said. “There’s mistake number one. Mistake number two, ‘We take an oath to defend our country from all enemies, foreign and domestic.’ No, sir, we don’t take that oath. We take the oath to defend our Constitution, not our country. Our Constitution. I mean these guys just can’t get it right at all. Ever. Ever. They don’t even know what they are talking about because they are career politicians.”

“I mean John Edwards was right, there are two Americas. I mean there weren’t. But this Administration has given us two Americas… There are two Americas, one that’s full of people that hate this country that see it as a nightmare and the scrooge of the world. And they don’t like the history of America. It comes from the progressive root,” Glenn continued. “That’s why the President has made it such a high priority for everybody around the world to see the TEA Party as far right… He’s trying to make sure every one understands that anybody who stands up for our Constitution is far right. So they will assume that we are Nazis as well… But what they don’t know is the truth always sets you free. The truth always wins.”

    G.W.B. ran up the debt, built a homeland spy-state, waged wars which have turned out to be total failures, wasted money on homeland socialism, e.g. Department of Education, greatly expanded the Medicaid scam and ruined the reputation of the GOP. Of course, the GOP has always been a fraud, but the Bushes led tbe party into new lows. So, I hope Ted doesn’t turn out to be like G.W.B..

    As far as blaming Ted for the looming collapse of SSI, Obamacare, the dollar, America’s credit rating or any other socialist security welfare program or even labeling Ted an enemy of the Police State, as far as anything goes, I would not doubt for a minute that the ignorant masses of fithy dirty fat-assed TV-loving Americans shall place blame on anybody who points out the truth and stands up for what is right.

    By the way, please don’t tell me how fucking great and/or exceptional Americans are. America has a 38% rate of obesity. America has become a nation of gluttony, porn, prescription drug dependency, sitcom/sports/pop music addicts, and worst of all—drum roll please— a nation of government dependent fuck-ups.

    I don’t want to hear about how bad Washington is before I hear about how amoral, fat, poorly attired and uneducated the voters are. I don give a fuck how good of a health care system America has, because it will go up in flames if the population has a 38% rate of obesity, a one in five drug addiction and a general disregard for healthy living habits.

    Question: if what Sen. Cruz said during his filibuster was of no importance whatsoever then why are they, both parties, spending so much time cutting him down?!
    Answer: fear – because he’s right & they don’t want people to question their authority because they know what’s good for US…. yeah, right.

    Depends on which European city you’re talking about. I spend half the year working all over Europe and I’ll admit that parts of Paris and London can be hideous.

    Yes, it’s foul language; however, I use the entire spectrum of the English language, at times, to penetrate the dense sculls of the dimwitted American.

    If you want the truth absent the profanity, may I suggest Ann Barnhardt. She adroitly explains America’s socioeconomic plight. FYI, Ann is a purist and vehemently anti-government (somewhat like Henry David Thoreau) and I don’t agree with her religious opinions; however, I respect her superior intellect and moral fortitude. She is currently a tax protester and probably will end up losing everything and then land in federal prison. As a woman, she has more guts than most American effeminate-men and more integrity than the knuckle draggers who are the freak-like goon-cop-types ………

    Indeed.
    The right will blame the liberal politicians for our woes, and the left will blame the right wingers…
    But 90 percent of this nations woes stems from the people themselves. We as a nation ARE ignorant, fat, and lazy…and we’re cowardly to blame the politicians for all our problems.

    We whine about a ten percent unemployment rate—though our grandparents saw an unemployment rate more than twice that back in the Great Depression. They dealt with an unemployment rate of 25 percent!

    We say our race relations have never been worse. In fact, American cities were literally burning back during the 1960′s—that was when race relations were REALLY bad.

    We have wars in Iraq and Afghanistan…and we bungle through them. Our grandparents had to fight the Nazi’s and the Japanese—and couldn’t afford to bungle them.

    We complain about taxes—though our taxes in the 1940′s and 1950′s were much higher, ranging from 20 percent up to 92 percent for the super rich.

    Our nations problems have NOT gotten worse–we’re actually living in rather easy times—it’s just that we as a people have gotten weaker and more shrill.

    Pottymouth has it wrong regarding American Exceptionalism.

    News flash! It’s not about the People being exceptional, It’s the foundation of the Republic that makes America exceptional.

    No other nation in the recorded history of planet Earth was established on the principle of individual liberty. It’s about liberty. Period.

    Mock if you will, scoff if you will. Such contempt for the republican principle of individual God-given unalienable Rights is no evidence of moral or intellectual superiority. Au contraire, it reveals an inability or unwillingness to discern the true source of sustainable domestic tranquility. The equality spoken of in Mankind’s great Charter, ‘The Declaration of Independence’ is not an equality of circumstances, nor equity of outcomes, but an equality that supercedes and interposes itself between tyrants and kings, and those toiling under their usurpations: That equality published by the Framers of the Declaration declared that no human authority can separate an individual from their right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, nor of their right to establish government to secure these Rights, nor of their rights to overturn or abolish governments injurious to these ends. Get the order of operation:

    -> God made men with unalienable individual Rights
    -> Men, exercising those Rights, made governments with power to secure [not arbitrate] the same Rights [by which governments exist], simultaneously establishing and limiting that power through an overarching Law, that we call ‘The Constitution’, which is the codification of the principles of individual Liberty set forth in the Declaration of Independence.
    -> Therefore, any government that cannot be restrained to the purpose of the security of Men’s individual Rights is outside of the bounds of its Constitutional authority, and is therefore a tyranny.
    -> the truth is that any and all tyranny is slavery, whether in subjection to an individual, or to a majority. Tyranny is, by definition, absolute power irrespectivel of individual Rights.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident:

    -> That all men are created equal,

    -> That
    they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,

    -> That among
    these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    -> That to secure these
    rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from
    the consent of the governed,

    -> That whenever any Form of Government becomes
    destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish
    it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles
    and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to
    effect their Safety and Happiness…”

    Barack Obama disparaged the Constitution declaring it to be a “flawed document” of “negative rights for government”, that says “what it cannot do, but not what it can do”.

    Governments do not have Rights, as they are not endowed by the Creator with unalienable Rights. Governments have “powers” granted by the People, neither any or all of which have any legitimate God-given authority to infringe upon any individuals’ own God-given Liberty, as long as those individuals have refrained from infringing another’s God-given Liberty.

    That’s the source of American Exceptionalism. It’s not about the merits of the people, all of whom [including yourself, my friend] are subject to flaws and failings of character, it’s about the Divine gift of Liberty, which no other nation under the Sun claims as its foundation and heritage. It is exactly this Exceptionalism that makes narcissistic tyrants and self-declared elites [who take liking for nothing but that which is hammered upon their own anvils, and framed for the gratification of their own avarice and grandiose ambitions] hate this nation.

    Bla, Bla, Bla….. Tell me, if you will, what was the admonition of Jesus to those who had a theocratic book but did not live up to its precepts? “Sons of vipers” He called them, which sounds a lot like sons of bitches, does it not? So, then, what is a thinking person supposed to think of those who purport to be exceptional, yet they crumple up the Constitution, throw it on the ground, urinate all over it, defecate on top of it and then choose to worship those imperators who built the welfare-warfare-bankster state and called it American exceptionalism. Americans are no better, perhaps less better, than those ignorant masses who worshiped the “exceptional” Nazi hegemons.

    Sons of bitches is what they are, and their leadership should be rightly hanged by the neck until dead…….

    Steve Cohen is a clear enemy OF THE PEOPLE! Men like him will work to initiate a situation where Marshall Law will be implemented. His words ” Protect the country from these people who are domestic enemies!” This is aimed directly at the Tea Party Patriots! Make no mistake…more like him will surface as they begin to see the POWER OF THE PEOPLE RISING UP! This is why we need to remain calm yet push forward. Locked and loaded, yes, safety’s on! More affirmation that the whole team in D.C. is dark! We need a major overhaul. God is on our side and we will not loose! When God gets actively engaged amazing things will happen. I am reminded of the story in the Bible of a man named Haman who was out to kill some persons of Jewish decent. He actually had the gallows built with which to hang them on! God got involved in part in answer to prayers but also to save his people. The story ends with Haman and his sons all being hug on the gallows they built! We are still a nation that is full of people who are in relationship with God! God will not fail us!
    D.C. will self destruct! Please keep praying for our nation and for a hedge of protection over all of Gods people worldwide but especially those in America fighting this war against evil!

    I don’t have health insurance. I pay for my health care out of pocket and have been doing so for many years. What’s discouraging, is watching the costs of my basic preventative care creep up, especially during the last 10 years. This was caused by a vicious cycle of greed and stupidity. Start with the ability for those who have excessive medical bills to absolve them through bankruptcy. That basically stiffs the hospitals, and although I know it’s difficult to pay those bills, should people be completely absolved of those bills? Isn’t there a better way? Then those hospitals gouge insurance companies, Medicaid, and Medicare to make up the difference. Insurance in itself allowed the cost of healthcare to creep up, when it’s unclear what the cost of your health care really is, what’s preventing it from skyrocketing? So if government was to intervene, why would it not be more reasonable to just offer simple catastrophic care for an actual affordable rate. And incentivize hospitals to set up affordable payment plans while preventing people from absolving their debt through bankruptcy. I think there is a lot of other ways to make health care great with out a complete government take over. 2000+ pages of burdensome, incomprehensible legislation, not even worth reading before it was past, and run by a government who could care less about the people it serves. I think even a socialist has to agree to this point, Obama Care is just a poorly planned, poorly executed piece of
    S#!T.

  • Lioness

    That’s a pretty good rant, and I can’t help allow myself to agree with it. Especially when I’m really p’d off. In my business I see it all the time and it can be very discouraging. Lack of personal responsibility breeds socialism after all. But this greedy government of the people by the people (yea right) have a complete foothold on the dependent, It’s generation upon generation of built in dependency that is well beyond any reform. Remove it all and.. Well, Who knows what will happen. It would be interesting.

    You are so right, that is why they are not in obamacare. They all were given a free pass to just MOVE ON. We are the ones stuck with obamacare.

  • Lioness

    Good point. Charity, like you said has always been part of the solution, but not after Obama Care. A little know fact. If you’re a non profit medical institution you will not be able to claim non profit status in Obama Care. Why, because every one is technically paying for health care. It’s all the details in Obama Care that’s mind blowing. And know one still knows what’s in it. I wonder if this will effect St. Judes?

    I’m afraid that Cruz will be Romneyized the way people now believe the worst of Romney. The Democratic talking points smeared Romney so bad, that that was what everyone started to think he was, and is now set in concrete when he is mentioned, even Glenn saying it. (I say “concrete” because it is all mixed up and permanently set.) I’m afraid that Romney was too nice a guy to blow his own horn very loudly. And it seems that ‘nice” just doesn’t cut it in politics anymore.

    Now, it appears that Cruz can stand up and speak the truth firmly and loudly enough to be really heard. The attacks on him are obviously out of fear of what he is saying.

    I just hope there will be enough others who will stand with him in the skirmishes down the road. Maybe even to the forming of a replacement third party, or a thorough purging of the Republican party.

    As for a potential third party, instead of Tea Party, may I suggest the Boston Insurrection Group, or the BIG Party? That’s what the original tea party was, was insurrectionists from Boston.

    Remember Benghazi. Who said, “Stand down.”?

    You either completely ignore or avoid what I wrote about “American Exceptionalism”, as touching the philosophies and principles upon which the American Republic was
    founded, and return to framing the discussion in terms of the
    moral/intellectual flaws of “Americans” [shall we assume that
    you are not American, or do you only speak of other, less perfect Americans?]:

    You wrote: “…So, then, what is a thinking person supposed to think of those who purport to be exceptional, yet they crumple up the Constitution, throw it on the ground, urinate all over it, defecate on top of it and then choose to worship those imperators who built the welfare-warfare-bankster state and called it American exceptionalism.”

    You stand with president Obama here: “I believe in
    American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism,”

    You and mr. Obama apply the phrase subjectively to the body politic, rather than to the objective principles upon which the American Republic was established.

    “A thinking person” would know, without having to be reminded, that people are people are people. Everyone who
    is a human being is naturally self-justifying, self-serving,
    self-righteous, and generally blind to their own moral shortcomings.
    We have no shortage of narcissistic self-esteem, and readily judge others before ourselves. Remember Jesus’ comparison of the splinter vs. the beam? The index finger points to others’ sins, but the other three point back. “With what measure ye mete, ye shall be measured.”

    Hence the Constitution.
    The Framers were ‘thinking people’, aware that the natural tendency of Mankind was self-service and oppression. They were not removed from the history of the [supposedly more enlightened] Europeans’ religious and political cataclysms as we are today. They observed unfettered power in the hands of Men. They so designed the American Republic as to afford Men their best chance of maintaining individual Liberty.
    We’ve now sacrificed that heritage of Liberty for power over others and their property.
    And before anyone thinks to blame religion for ‘all the suffering’, I’ll not let the Atheists escape without a couple of bruises, as well.
    Let’s list a few governments based upon atheistic philosophies:

    -> Atheist – Revolutioonary France – Were Robespierre, Voltaire and Jean-Paul Marat followers of anything or anyone of higher principle than the bloodiest Pope? Hint: compare the history of Robespierre’s ‘Terror’ with the ‘Holy Office of the Inquisition’

    -> Atheist – The Bolshevism/Leninism/Stalinism – produced a more humane Russia than existed under the Tsars? They traded the royal family for the Communist Party, which was an oligarchy unto itself.

    -> Atheist – Germany’s National Socialism – Do I even need to comment?

    -> Atheist – Chairman Mao’s Progressive ‘Cultural Revolution’ extended more freedom to the Chinese people? Dissent is still crushed under the tank-treads of communism.

    -> Atheist – The Khmer Rouge in Cambodia – put into power by Progressive intellectuals – turned and brutally murdered its own architects and any and all dissenters.

    -> Atheist – North Korea – easily the most brutal and repressive society known today.

    Both religious and secular tyrannies grow from the same root: the rejection of the principle of individual Liberty. Be it by Dictatorship, Democracy [majority rule] or ‘Divine right’, all nations and political systems in the world are founded upon slavery: Priviledges are granted or withheld by Men.

    With one notable exception.

    The United States’ Constitution, codifying the ‘self-evident’ truths declared in our great Charter – the Declaration of Independence – is the only framework in the world conceived and written for the express purpose of securing the equal Right of God-given Liberty to every individual.

    American Exceptionalism is therefore an objective fact, independent of the moral character of the people living within the political and/or geographic boundaries of the American Republic.

    There are no better or worse people living in America than in Liberia, or Bosnia, or China, or Russia, Greece, England, Equador or anywhere else, so you can cease with the
    ‘Americans aren’t exceptional’ diatribe.
    You’re right. We’re not exceptional human beings, we’re not better by nature than anyone living anywhere else;

    Nevertheless America is exceptional, and considered from the standpoint of America’s Constitutional foundation,
    a thinking person is constrained to agree.

    Excellent post!

    When I hear people clamoring for a return to the Constitution while using and justifying bad manners, it causes red flags to pop up.

    “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” ~John Adams

    “It is in the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigour. . . . degeneracy in these is a canker
    which soon eats into the heart of its laws and constitution.”
    ~Thomas Jefferson

    “To suppose that any form of government will secure
    liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.” ~James Madison

    One could could fill many pages with similar quotes by all the Founders.

    Whether they realize it or not, they are actually contradicting themselves if a return to the Constitution’s founding principles is indeed their goal. More times than not, these people do not want liberty, they are wanting freedom from liberty, i.e. lawlessness.

    ~ BTG

    “[L]iberty . . . is not a licentiousness of doing what is pleasing to every one against the command of God; but an exemption from all human laws, to which they have not given their assent.” ~Algernon Sydney, Discourses Concerning Government

    I know but it proves he’s a hypocrite. He constantly harasses people and I will dog him and show what a fool he is by using his own words. :-)

    It appears that you’re one of the “simple-folk” Richies. Why won’t you answer some simple questions?
    I just want you to post specific information as it relates to the company you’re touting to others on the internet.
    C’mon, post the information and be specific. Richie, please post the last 4 years earnings and debt figures for Solar City, also post any BBB complaints filed against the company and the recent activities by the Feds on their investigation of improper sales and government filings for funding and reimbursements.
    Now understand this next part because it’s very important, BE SPECIFIC! Don’t be a hypocrite and ignore this request, Richie.
    You’re touting the stock on the internet and you also make unsubstantiated claims both here and in your Clown act on YouTube I’m told. Just the facts simpleton, just the facts.
    Let’s have it “Uncle Richie” don’t be a loudmouth hypocrite.

  • http://thefriendcenter.com/ Average Joe.

    Folks, don’t fall for this loudmouths scams. Research everything he says and does. He won’t answer the basic questions I’ve asked him over and over.

    Research is the key and he has no idea on how to do it.

    Richie, answer the questions and “be specific.”

    Here’s what you’re lying about when you guarantee 20% savings over 20 years. From Solar City’s media center. Are you ready everyone? This is what I’ve told “Uncle Richie” in a past post to the moron.

    “This release contains forward-looking statements including, but not limited to, statements regarding expected savings, expected electricity production, expected electricity offsets and assumptions relating to the foregoing. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved, if at all. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward looking statements. You should read the section entitled “Risk Factors” in SolarCity’s registration statement on Form S-1, which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and identifies certain of these and additional risks and uncertainties. We do not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.”

    One piece of proof presented to you without any sugar coatings.

    Joe you can be a hater and a denier all you want. You can go to my website and deny the live turbine is not producing electricity. You can deny the solar city customers are not saving money. You’re a disgruntaled old man who has a chip on his shoulder. BATTA-BING!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6TncZA0Nfs

    I just want you to be honest. So far you’re not. I will never visit your website. You’re a deceitful hater and stalker of innocent people on this site.

    Answer the questions so everyone can see what the truth is Richie. It’s funny how you “simple-folk” dodge the specifics.

    Don’t implode, be a man and post the information little fella.

    Hi “sweetheart”. According to the Obama Care website, the cheapest policy I can get, It’s a catastrophic plan (look the word up if you need to) for $105.28. Now I must cut and paste that plan “Humana Connect Basic 6350/6350 Plan” to the Humana website to actually see what that plan entails. A $6350.00 Annual deductible is required before the insurance actually covers anything. The only coverage I will actually receive before the deducible is a periodic health exam an OB-GYN exam. Those two exams yearly, cost roughly $300. If I purchase this “care” I would pay $1263.36 a year as apposed to the $300.00 dollars I pay now for my preventative care. HMMMMMMM…….. I actually need other care that I currently pay out of pocket and would still have to pay out of pocket for, such as a bone density test which would never be covered for a 36 year old. But I need to have it. This catastrophic coverage would only be necessary if I had a chronic condition such as cancer. But what the heck, an extra hundred dollar bill is a big deal in this crappy economic climate. I’ll just wait until I get cancer to buy the insurance. Because that’s just about how stupid Obama Care is. But we all know it’s just a path to single payer anyway.
