Don’t be a jerk, Sen. Cruz.
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/30/2013 6:58:17 PM

It is a shopworn technique of hard-line conservatives to declare themselves men and women of principle in contrast to those other Republicans — the ones, you know, who pass legislation and try to represent their constituents. It is both self-serving (presuming principles are of no matter to opponents) and lazy in that it is always easy to say no, ridicule compromise and remain pristine rather than trying to improve legislation or introduce an alternative. I’m sorry to say Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is too often falling into the reflexive habit of voting no

Comments:
Wow. So our "conservative" at WaPO is jumping on the bandwagon with Joe Scarborough in attacking the honorable Sen. Cruz. How shameful.

Cruz is doing such a good job that he is being targeted for elimination by the
WaPo´s bosses... they probably told Rubin to write this or else walk the plank jobwise.

You can tell who is really good...
The Media Ho´s hate real conservatives.
And the Media Ho´s love losers like McCain and Rubio, who destroy the GOP from within.

Rubin kept her paycheck by selling out to her WaPo Media Ho bosses.
No integrity at her DC Urinal...
Just backstabbing for the great and rising Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz.

Cruz threatens their corrupt world.
Attaboy!!

Senator Cruz is not one of my Senators so I did not know much about him before his election. What I have learned is that his campaign promised he would be a jerk if elected. He (unlike most) is keeping his promise. I for one would like to hear more about the behind the scenes deal making done by those we consider on our side. The RINO´s are in a box where he is concerned, they can not exclude him and he will call them out. BTW if Texas gets tired of his representation we will welcome him in Georgia.

When you c**k the trigger you should aim the gun down range. In this case Jennifer you aimed at your head and hit the mark. We are sick of RINOs saying one thing and doing something opposite. Sorta like Rubio being a conservative then being point man for Schumer´s immigration bill. Go Sen Cruz, out here in America we want some shaking in the house. As for MS. Rubin the HUFFPO may have a opening.

No #9, she does NOT have a point - and in fact invited, and guaranteed, that many conservatives would not even read her tripe with her intentionally provacative header. She is a lib, who has to pretend to be somewhat conservative to keep her gig. She´s a discgrace, and a creature of Washington. Perhaps you are too.

I am always suspicious of any bill that has to be passed ASAP as is and many were kept out of the loop in the crafting of the bill. I am also suspicious of any bill that is nearly 900 pages long. I also don´t believe in the seniority system, everyone is elected the same way, going along with a bad bill just to be popular among colleagues isn´t a definition of good governance. The gang of 8 has had some nasty things to say about those who oppose this bill as well, do they get a pass?

His questioning of Dianne Feinstein was spot on, not condescending, the woman is constantly condescending to others and was attempting to avoid the question he asked in the first place. That Jenny would try and defend her and criticize Cruz for it is ridiculous for anyone who holds themselves out as a conservative.

Rubin writes: "Obstruction is easy; governance is hard. And if the answer is that only hackneyed gestures (e.g. push for repealing Obamacare with a Dem Senate majority, but offer no alternative) that interest him, then the people of Texas are being shortchanged."

My .02: In 2012 the GOP/Romney platform was that the President´s policies were destroying America. The President is re-elected and now somehow his policies are less harmful? ObamaCare is a disaster and I have no faith in the GOP fighting for its repeal. Senator Cruz is right to shame Republicans who have abandoned the platform upon which they ran.

I have to ask, Ms. Rubin, why those other Republicans — the ones, you know, who pass legislation and try to represent their constituents - are complaining that their constituents - the ones, you know, that they are trying to represent - are yelling at them to stand on principle. It sounds like maybe their constituents don´t feel they are being represented the way they should be.

As for your concerns over Senator Cruz, for starters, hopefully he will not have to worry about some of these ´colleagues´ after the next couple of elections. Second, as a conservative I´m sure he understands that humility and grace are often ´shackle words´ used to try to constrain and muzzle those who sometimes have to raise a little ruckus in support of their principles. He does not lack these qualities, he just refuses to be bound by them. Third, for the author of an article like this to grouse that Senator Cruz is ´whiny´ is the paradigm of surrealism.

Perhaps it is his colleagues who need to apologize to their constituents for betraying their confidence.

Finally I have to wonder if you considered it a ´hackneyed gesture´ when the House, in the face of a Democrat majority, refused to vote for Obamacare, even though they knew they could not prevent it from passing. See, most of us, Ms. Rubin, appreciated that gesture.

No. This is just plain throw-the-stink-bomb by Jen.

Senator Cruz gets yelled at by some of his colleagues, who are obviously prime examples of "grace and humility", and Jennifer tells Senator Cruz not to be a jerk.

Then, when he says, "I don’t even bother to argue with them. I just sort of let them yell. . .", she lectures him about lacking grace, humility and manners(using his excellent questioning of Sen. Feinstein as an example of bad manners!)and pretends to think he is whining about being yelled at.

She has no valid arguments at all. What a shame that Senator Cruz, Paul, and Lee are getting yelled at by "those other Republicans" because they don´t like being told by their own constituents to stand on principle because of the example of these three senators! That is very telling. Sounds like their constituents would like to see a bit of "purity" in them. You can work with people with whom you disagree without giving up your principles.

Senator Cruz is no jerk. Jennifer is the jerk, and a sneaky little jerk at that, for trying to drive a wedge in the support of Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in the minds of her readers. There will be times when some of us may disagree with both Paul and Cruz. Sounds like Jennifer is hoping we throw one or the other of them overboard, or Paul will turn on Cruz, thereby strengthening her favorite examples of "grace and humility".

How ironic that some of the best examples of how to be a jerk are the ones who see themselves as most qualified to lecture others on not being jerks.

Some folks equate "passing legislation" with "getting things done" for - not to - our country. For those who think Cruz is being an obstructionist for the sake of obstruction, please name your top ten public laws from the current Congress or the previous Congress that advances conservative principles.

In Cruz´s home state, the legislature meets only once every two years, unless summoned by the governor for a special session. There is no rush to pass legislation for its own sake and certainly no rush to pass legislation that restricts hard won freedoms or deals away sovereignty like a soiled hanky. Sometimes the preferable alternative to bad legislation is nothing. That appears to be the case with the very progressive immigration - or pick the number to the nearest ten million instant democrats - bill.

Hey Jen, a ´jerk´ would be someone who passionately held your Berkley mindset for far too long. Sit down, take a breath and understand that just because you have a token column in a ´news´paper, doesn´t mean you have the history or capacity to school someone like Cruz.

I love Cruz....he´s moved into my top spot for ´16, but Rubin is correct that it may prove to be unproductive to loudly call out his fellow senators.

A better tact would be; self-deprecate himself as an aggressive newbee in the Senate, but one that hopes he can bring his colleagues along. Smile.

If the ´conservatives´ in this country are more concerned about being polite and knowing your place (that´s basically what she´s telling Cruz) than the future of the United State, then Texas needs out. Not hyperbole, not mindless exaggeration - if we are going down, at least let it be with a fight. And it appears that most of the rest of this country has given up already. And NO, you ditz, you do NOT have to propose competing legislation to say ´what you are doing is WRONG!´ Dingbat.

Rubin is the new Kathleen Parker. The WaPo turns all into the same type of ´token repub´..ones that criticize conservatives. It takes forever for some people to realize that no moderate/liberal will ever compromise with a conservative..it always must be the other way around. Our nation does not need any more legislation. It needs to scrap half the legislation it already has. We have in place means to handle most of our problems. All new laws are made to give special rights to Dem voters. Period. Rubio is a disappointment. He knows Florida tho..and it is growing more liberal. I just wish SC would end the reign of McCains stooge, Graham. Please.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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

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
