She’s right, Ted is right, keep blasting away at Obamacare.
Then there are those sounding like surrender monkeys, as in Sen.Rand Paul, who said in Michigan yesterday that ‘we probably can’t get rid of Obamacare‘. UPDATE: (Rand walks it back) That’s sounding a lot like some of the patriots fighting the British during the War of Rebellion (a.k.a. The Revolutionary War) who became disillusioned due to the many setbacks of the war.
Thankfully Gen.Washington (who most certainly had his doubts) persevered to carry on the fight, not once voicing his justified concerns openly to the enemy. That is something conservatives should learn to embrace, never give up, keep your fears to yourself and fight the good fight, letting resolve determine events, not the flapping lips of despair.
Hang in there, Ted and Mike. You have millions of supporters among ordinary hardworking Americans. We support you because you don’t shy away from the fray. May your colleagues in the Senate gain the wisdom to support your excellent efforts so that you can see that the view is better from inside the bus than under it.
Oh, and a little reminder to Republican senators up for re-election in 2014: Moose season ends soon, allowing more time on one’s hands. So, we’ll be watching your votes very carefully this week.
NOTE: Noticeably, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio aren’t as engaged in the fight as Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. It should be the Magnificent Four, not just the Dynamic Duo.
Following the will of the people is apparently a novel idea in D.C. these days. Just ask Senator Ted Cruz and his liberty-loving posse on Capitol Hill who have led the charge to defund Obama’s train wreck.
Those of us who hang in there supporting a major political party with our energy, time, and contributions would like to believe that that party would praise principled conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for following through on campaign promises. We’d like to believe that the GOP establishment would applaud the way these bold leaders have rallied the grassroots to their cause. But, no, such praise would require a commensurate level of guts and leadership, and the permanent political class in D.C. is nothing if not gutless and rudderless.
We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game. The Capitol Hill cowards are rushing to anonymously denounce Senator Cruz to any reporter with a pad and pen.
Welcome to our world, Ted. The same people have been denouncing conservatives like me for years (right after they ask for help fundraising for themselves or endorsing the latest candidate they’ve suckered into paying their exorbitant consulting fees). We can compare shiv marks next time we meet, my friend.
