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.”
