    “Is McCarthy someone you admire?” reporter Todd J. Gillman wondered.

    “I’m not going to engage in the back and forth and the attacks,” Cruz replied, declining to distance himself from McCarthy.

    A perfect spokesman for the new and moribund GOP.
    Has Obama distanced himself from Bill Ayers yet?

    It might be a good idea to read his complete statement instead of extracting convenient sound bites.

    SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): "The senior Senator from Arizona urged this body to trust the Republicans. Let me be clear: I don’t trust the Republicans, and I don’t trust the Democrats. And I think a whole lot of Americans likewise don’t trust the Republicans and the Democrats because it is leadership in both parties that has gotten us into this mess. … What we are doing to our kids and grandkids, I think is immoral. Now, I commend the Democrats in this body for their candor. The Democrats and President Obama have been very explicit that it is their intention to raise the debt ceiling and to do so with no conditions whatsoever, just to keep borrowing and borrowing and borrowing money without any structural reforms to fix the problems. That is an intellectually consistent position. I think it is a dangerous position, but it is at least candid and that is the reason why everyday for sixty days the Democrats have opposed taking the debt ceiling off the table in this discussion. But unfortunately, one of the reasons we got into this mess is because a lot of Republicans were complicit in the spending spree, and that’s why so many Americans are disgusted with both sides of this House."

    I'm sure Ted Cruz would be perfectly willing to compromise with himself.

    Ted Cruz does not have a future outside of being a fringe politician. Like Paul Ryan.

    Long ago, try to keep up with the modern world.

    from the 2008 campaign cycle

    ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, April 16: An early organizing meeting for your state senate campaign was held at his house, and your campaign has said you are friendly. Can you explain that relationship for the voters, and explain to Democrats why it won’t be a problem?

    Obama: George, but this is an example of what I’m talking about.

    This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who’s a professor of English in Chicago, who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.

    And the notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.
    also from 2008, Obama speaking about Ayers past
    This is a guy who engaged in some despicable acts 40 years ago when I was eight years old. By the time I met him, 10 or 15 years ago, he was a college professor of education at the University of Illinois
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    So do you suppose that Bernadette and Michelle are no longer friends either?

    I like how he subtly reduces the responsibility of Republicans who vote for the "blank check," implying that its democrats who want the blank check but republicans a just reluctantly going along.

    Of course Ted Cruz doesn't trust Republicans. He doesn't trust anybody unless they believe that Jesus rode a Dinosaur. Of all the GOOD people Republicans in my state could have sent to the Senate, we had to choose a knuckledragging, mouth breather of the highest order. If you look up the phrase "profoundly retarded" in Webster's dictionary, the entry says "See Ted Cruz".

    And that is why we have out of control government. We have a president that steps on the Constitution, not because he thinks he is right, but because he knows that it will take years to catch up with him. And even then, he might still get away with it.

    Agency after agency passing thousands of regulations to take more and more control of your life.

    You should pray for a guy like Ted Cruz to be president. But, most liberals just can see what's right in front of their collective faces.
