Ted Cruz: Mitt Romney ‘French-
kissed’ Barack Obama

Politico, by Kevin Robillard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/18/2012 9:00:21 AM

Sen.-elect Ted Cruz believes Mitt Romney got a little too close to Barack Obama in the third presidential debate. “I’m pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama,” Cruz said in a speech at the Federalist Society’s annual conference Friday.Cruz said that conservatives failed to make their case to the American people, leaving Romney no choice but to move toward the president. “We didn’t win the argument, we didn’t even make the argument” throughout much of 2012, Cruz said. But in the first debate, he argued, that changed. “It was the one time we actually contested ideas,

Cruz is great.
Right in there with Trey Gowdy.

Mitt is a choir boy.

We needed a bull dog.

It was for exactly this kind of reason that Cruz was not my candidate in the primary. He sometimes hurts the party by dividing it when it´s not necessary -- just for the sake of it sometimes, it seems. He has strengths, but he doesn´t have to be mean.

I´m disappointed Romney lost, but I´m also disappointed to hear Senstor-elect Cruz speaking this way. When will Republicans stand together and address the issue of vote harvesting and dirty tricks? It´s easy to throw mud on the losing candidate two weeks after an election, but cheap. Thought Cruz was better than that.

I voted for Cruz but this is not the first thing I´ve seen from him that I don´t like.

I don´t see any reason to slime a good and honorable man who made a valiant effort to wrest this nation from the grasp of a Marxist regime.

I´m sick of the Romney bashing from a number of other sources, as well.

Word #3 and #4. I think Romney did make a mistake not going after Obama on Benghazi and Obamacare and opted instead to just ´look´ presidential, and Ryan didn´t come across strong enough against the repulsive, hideous Biden either. There were mistakes, miscalculations. But there´s no need to go into hyperbole and call it a French kiss, it was nothing like that. Mitt deserves better.

The French kisser is Obama, any time a dictator blows into town.

Crude Cruz just disqualified himself in my estimation. He seemed like a lounge show warmup at the convention. He talks like one, too.

Read the Must Read: "The Victim of a Crime".

Cruz and those who believe the loss of the election was Romney´s fault are delusional. We know how it was lost. The robber - Obama.

No one we´d have run would have fared any differently than Romney did.

Many of us here were not big fans of Mitt Romney from Day One, but when it became clear he ´´won´´ the nomination, we got fully behind him. I went, enthusiastically, to every rally in Las Vegas he appeared at. And an couple of Obama´s, as a protestor outside the event.

Along the way, however, Mitt lost (if he ever really had) the conservative core that Cruz and other conservatives live and breathe. Still, yes, he put up as good a fight as he could have. As HE could have.

Cruz is right, whether you want to admit it, or like it, or not.

Until we present candidates, like Cruz, who demonstrate a clear difference between Republicans and Democrats, we will keep losing. The Republican Party has become Democrat-Lite. And it´s obvious today that when it comes to a choice between Democrat and Democrat-Lite, most American voters (setting aside the fraud factor) went with the real thing.

Perhaps the French-kissing comment has you disturbed, but the Republican Establishment lost many races around the country with their Demo Lite strategery. Mitt tried. And lost.

Cruz actually IS, and won.

Ted Cruz is a trial lawyer and this is what trial lawyers do. It´s why I voted for Dewhurst in the primary. But, Cruz, up until now, has done a good job supporting Romney as our nominee and mending the Texas fences with those of us who distrusted him.

This is a step backward, Mr. Cruz. You haven´t built enough creds yet to be cutting down Mitt Romney.

I think Romney is absolutely outstanding as a person, but not as a candidate. Winning elections in the US means explaining difficult things to dimwits. It´s akin to teaching civics to preschool children. If you can´t manage this, then it´s hard to get elected.

I find this remark distasteful as well. If the RNC could only figure out that in this sentiment is the disdain so many of us have for the party that sets up such flawed candidates, even a wonderful individual like Governor Romney, who refused to engage the party of doom.

It was either the comment by Cruz of "french Kissing" or "kissing obama´s backside" which Romney did. Wimpy candidates who think it was "their turn to be The Candidate" never win. Romney has a mean streak--that was used in the primaries against his peers-BUT, was able to keep his hands clean and say it was the PACS and he had no control.
Strange, when complaints of other PACs were made, the candidate who was supported by those PACs immediately said for those ads to be pulled or that they did not agree with those ads.
Romney´s surrogates, although not too publicly but in a sneaking way, spent over 4 years going after the person he knew could keep him from being "the" candidate for pres.
It´s a crying shame Romney didn´t have the GUTS or BACKBONE to confront the muslim fraud in the WH.
Ted Cruz is spot on! Darn happy I voted for him. Anyone professing Dewhurst as their choice approves of crony capitalism, the elite ruling class/establishment in DC, who get along to see who can best fleece the citizenship; no backbone for their beliefs.

I thought Romney had drawbacks in early 2012, but he emerged as the best candidate and I said nothing more about my apprehensions. Good Man and thanks to him for going where few dared.

What Cruz said reflects the real drawbacks including the likelihood of too many "me too, Mr. President" moments in the final weeks. Mitt underperformed McCain in Republican votes if he picked up more than 790,000 independent votes that everybody says he did. Thinking about that.

But more than anything, it was the media. There were better moves available using all of media and message strength and exposing the demagoguery were parts of that equation. We will have to do these things next time and the good news is that it will be a little easier next time too. But we still have to do them - effectively.

???? Every person who wanted to run for president, and who had the guts to actually get into the race and campaign, did so. If there were any who chose not to step up, that person has forfeited allegiance or belief in being the one who could have stopped Mitt Romney.

´´This is a step backward, Mr. Cruz. You haven´t built enough creds yet to be cutting down Mitt Romney.´´

As someone who voted for Ted Cruz in Texas, this comment about Romney is quite perplexing at this point. It is true that one needs to first be sworn in and establish some political savvy first in submitting and supporting key GOP legislation, instead of going backwards and attacking our ´´flawed´´ candidate.

Romney was on the bottom of my list as far as candidates go in the primary. I forgot until someone pointed it out here that he got to the top by slinging mud at all the other GOP conservative front-runners and knocking all of them out of contention. That he DIDN´T rub salt in 0bama´s political gaping wounds during his blitz to election day is beyond me.

Romney, like a general who tied his fate to his past victories & spotless uniform with many campaign medals, didn´t inspire US in the present to come out in enough numbers to win the one final battle for him to claim victory.

Cruz, we need forward thinkers, not another ´´mouth from the South.´´ Keep focused on our conservative values by being a role model for other Tea Party candidates.

Rush has always said that given a choice of dem or dem-lite, democrats will always go with the real democrat. Why vote for the fake? Until the RNC takes this advice to heart and runs a conservative in the Reagan mold, they will always lose the race.

I voted for Romney, but would have preferred a more conservative candidate.

Did Romney make mistakes yes, did bigoted social conservatives not vote for Romney because he´s a Mormon, yes, and may they burn in hell, is Cruz right Romney should have stayed tough during the last debate yes, is Cruz a slob and a pig yes.

I´d like to see some documentation of the fact that Romney´s surrogates spent four years preventing anyone from getting into the presidential race, plus some details on how they accomplished this goal. Otherwise it just appears to be a hollow rationalization.

As for Cruz, he should know better than to join the circular firing squad. This accomplishes nothing.

I caught part of Cruz´s speech on C-SPAN, and speaking as a former Romneybot, I thought he was right on. He was not attacking Romney, but just stating the obvious. At one point, Cruz talked about the "mendacity" of the "War on Women" theme, mocking and refuting it very effectively, I thought. Why couldn´t Romney have done the same thing?

But we knew going in that for all his personal gifts, Romney is not especially good at conveying strength and talking about ideas.

#26 - before you blame social conservatives and say they should rot in hell perhaps it would be better to see if your hysterical analysis had actual facts to support it.

79 percent of white evangelicals voted for Romney on Tuesday. That´s the same percentage that Bush received in 2004, and more than Sen. John McCain received in 2008. The evangelical vote was 27 percent of the overall electorate -- the highest it´s ever been for an election.

In retrospect, it seems neither Romney´s supporters nor his critics saw him entire and clear. Mitt Romney is, by all accounts, an extraordinary man with deeply conservative instincts governing how he has led his life. Successful in business, sincere in his faith and, above all else, secure in his love of family. He is a living archetype of what conservative values look like in practice. His critics (myself included) were slow to recognize the good in Mitt the man, and his supporters were too quick to assume that Romney´s personal values would translate into the political virtues that win elections. As a politician, Romney was opportunistic in his embrace of conservative positions and dishonest in his attacks on conservative rivals. He was inconsistent and ineffective in advancing conservative ideas against Obamaism and completely failed to engage and defeat the liberal media complex that was his true opponent. The Romney Campaign was a mess without a message--bad polling assumptions, no campaign slogan, reactive on the air, and inept on the ground. With an economy this bad, it was Romney´s election to lose, and he did.

Weighing all this up, I come to this: Ted Cruz was right in what he said, and wrong to have said the way he did.

If someone wanted a nice career politician who would ´´play nice´´ and say politically correct things, you probably voted for Senator Cruz´s opponent in the primary.

The Republicans are never going to win another key election by ´´playing nice´´. Period!!! We need candidates that can get in the Demon-RAT gutter and out-nasty the Demon-RATS.

The rules have changed. The people have proven they don´t want ´´nice´´ any more. They ignore nice. They sit home knowing that nice can´t win.

I, for one, hope Senator Cruz is just getting started, and will be a HUGE thorn in both the Demon-RAT´s, and the establishment RINO´s, sides for many years to come!!! That is exactly why I voted for him every step along the way!!!

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit.

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too.

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees. The field of finance

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
