Ted is useful as a monkey

Ted is useful as a monkey wrench in the gears of government. As a presidential candidate he is useless.

Presidential candidates make great monkey wrenches

Just look at Ron Paul.

He set a new standard for monkey-wrenchism. The debates looked like Ron Paul and the 7 Dwarves.

Monkey wrenches at least make the debates interesting. And they help move the Overton Window.

As a candidate, he'll be quite useful.

As a president - that would be a little scary.

Great......[yawn]

Another Neocon plant (also known as the "Tea Party") performing his role mandated by the international banksters.

I dont remember seeing posts about Obama or Sebelius

A whole week before an interview...

I remember seeing them about Ron Paul

When he was going to be on.

RandWatcher's picture

This is the continuation of the R3volution

Both Ron and Rand Paul endorsed Cruz.

Both got burned...

:)

Got burned how?

I bet they both rather like the actions Cruz has taken.

I think they are both pissed at him for the obamacare filibuster

I know I am. It was self destructive by design. It hurt the cause of liberty by highlighting the divisiveness. Cruz is not about changing ideas or attitudes, he is about intensifying them. Cruz want to keep the false dichotomy alive.

Didn't he stand on principle?

Ron Paul was extremely divisive - especially on the issue of the Fed.

Eventually everyone came around and saw the issue from his angle.

What is the difference between what Ron Paul did (and what Rand is doing) with the Fed, and what Cruz did on Obamacare?

Obamacare is a partisan issue

Nothin' principle about it. He's straight toting the party line. Let him criticize the fed or the drug war or dare I say it, the hawkish neo-conservative foreign policy. Then I will stop giving him shit.

Two words - Goldman Sachs

Partisan?

Being against using the force of the Federal Government to force people to support the finance industry by buying health insurance is a partisan issue?

Give me a break!

You're not seeing clearly. I dare say you're blinded by your hatred of Cruz.

Answer me this: Is Obamacare justified by the Constitution? Yes or no?

It is playing out in a partisan manner, only because it is Obama's baby and he's a democrat. If GWB put the law in place, the Dems would be screaming bloody murder.

No, there is a very clear principle at issue here. Cruz was one of the few who chose to fight, instead of simply ceding it as a lost cause.

This is silly

Nobody thinks Obamacare is good. But there is nothing principled about Cruz. He is a partisan hack. I have demonstrated this time and time again and i am tired of it. Check out my post history. Or better yet, show me one instance of Cruz fighting the establishment Republicans on something substantial. And dont bother citing issues that Rand has the lead on. Cruz knows he won't get tea party support if he doesnt back rand. Name an issue that Cruz picked to fight that doesnt fit the profile of "Right Wing Extremism"

Any Republican could have stood up against Obamacare. Boehner, King, Alexander, etc...

All this does is perpetuate the left right paradigm that the pauls have been trying to tear down.
