Debt-limit vote shows Cornyn’s courage,
Cruz’s pursuit of the limelight

Waco Tribune [TX], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/19/2014 11:14:50 AM

With allies like Ted Cruz, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn doesn’t need enemies. Thanks to Sen. Cruz’s latest procedural stunt, Cornyn, a reliably conservative Republican from Texas with a record of responsible governance, now finds himself under siege from bomb-throwing elements of the extreme right over last week’s Senate vote to extend the government’s borrowing authority. Republican leaders in the Senate sought an up-or-down vote that would put all Democrats firmly on record as supporting the debt-limit extension. But Cruz upset all that, demanding the debt-limit bill first clear a nit-picky procedural hurdle requiring 60 votes. With only 55 votes, Democrats were

Just about every media outlet is part of the Communist´s Ministry of Truth. Just about every media outlet is endorsing Cornyn and denigrating Cruz. Go figure.

Not hard to figure the lying media. Surrendering is couragous if you are a Republician and telling the truth to powerful elite is bomb-throwing.

Right wing and Nazi don´t belong in the same sentence. Nazi´s were socialists. Only Stalin thought of them as right wing because they were to the right of him.

The GOP hasn´t the courage to face the media lies about default. Truth be told, I suspect most of them believe that not being able to borrow 25% of the budget would be default. Most of us could cut the budget that much without hitting the senior voting block.

Governance and politics are not synonymous. The goals of governance and politics are not the same. Governance has a defined playbook - the Constitution. Politics has a script you "play" by. Governance is representative, politics is about playing the other side or as was stated on this forum a day or so ago, its about hanging something around the opponents neck so that you can hopefully (re)gain power and be in the paralyzing position of avoiding the other? side having something to hang around your neck. And so it continues.
Is Sen. Cruz a glory hound or is he Don Quixote tilting at windmills, incredibly naive in believing in the playbook (Constitution)? What is the difference between a procedural stunt and a political stunt? Is one better/worse than the other? We have devolved to the lowest common denominator in our capital. All are forced into the mold to be able to stay in the game. I don´t know what Sen. Cruz´s end game is. But to say that he alone has ulterior (selfish) motives is absurd. They should all be questioned daily about what they are doing and why.

The wacko Waco Tribune did not want Cornyn and other Republicans to have to cast their vote with the Democrats. Cornyn is not a consistent conservative, and apparently, the Waco Trib supports the way Cornyn votes.

The only thing that can be said for Cornyn is that he is not as bad as a Democrat.

I actually like Cornyn, he beat every news outlet in Texas to beat Ron Kirk. But this argument is drivel. Only voting "no" when you know it won´t count, and not when it will, may or may not be politically astute or economically responsible, but it is certainly not "courageous".

With internet sources, newspapers such as this cannot come out with their lies and get most to believe them any longer.

Congress----Representatives and Senators need to realize they cannot continue to Lie to the voting public and think they can continue with the games being played.

2014 hopefully brings more honest and courageous to DC such as Senators Cruz and Lee.

Maybe Ted doesn´t have the right "end game" to try and stop Obama and the Democrats.

But what is the Republican establishment´s "end game?" The closest I´ve been able to come is "We´ll let them win this one, but we´ll fight them tomorrow on the next one," but tomorrow never comes.

Oh yeah, and the other one is "We can do stuff when we win the Senate in November." I´ve seen the GOP establishment snatch defeat from the jaws of victory over and over again to put any trust in that one.

Oh yeah, and guys, if the Democrats can be nice to each other with the Star Wars bar scene that passes for the Senate Democrat caucus, you guys can all get along nice at your lunches and not tell those high-school-mean-girls-stories about how nobody wants to eat lunch with Ted Cruz.

#16 – Spot on.

#7 – The continuation of the canard that raising the debt ceiling is necessary to avoid a default of the government by the GOP old guard is yet another example of the feckless Republican Party really being part of the Cartel Party. The GOP old guard always accepts the arguments of the socialist Dims and never come from the premise of limited government and Constitutional restraints. They love gigantic government as much as their “opposition”, they just want to run the leviathan so they control the money flow to their cronies.

The premise is that Cornyn´s strategy was courageous because it put all the Democrats on record. But Cruz was self serving because it showed that the establishment of our party was no different from the Democrats. I don´t buy it, they could have voted no and forced the Dems to make an amendment. Like an upper limit or some minimal spending cut.

Texans like to talk all the time about how big Texas is, and how if you´re driving from the bottom of Texas to Canada, then you´re spending half of your time just getting through the state itself. So is that true? It´s pretty close. Texas really is gigantic. Redditor Armeleon put together a map that gives you a good idea of the massive size of Texas.

Speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference on Wednesday, Eric Holder took exception to criticism of his tenure as attorney general. He even hinted that the “unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity” was motivated by racism. “It had nothing to do with me, forget about that,”? Holder said. “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” Holder’s notion that past attorneys general have escaped widespread criticism, or that criticism directed toward him is solely race-based, overlooks incidents of those before him, including

Here’s a radical notion: It is simultaneously possible to believe that women are entitled to equal pay and to not support the Paycheck Fairness Act. Not that you’d know it from the rhetoric President Obama and fellow Democrat are happily flinging at Republicans who dare to oppose the measure. “I don’t know why you would resist the idea that women should be paid the same as men and then deny that that’s not always happening out there,” Obama said Tuesday. “If Republicans in Congress… want to show that they do care about women being paid the same as men, then show

Obamacare´s Medicaid Trap

The technology behind a huge part of Obamacare´s efforts to expand insurance coverage—the part aimed at low-income Americans—remains far from fixed, and the glitches are keeping some of the nation´s most vulnerable patients from getting insured. The administration launched a "tech surge" to improve the HealthCare.gov experience for those shopping for private insurance, but the website´s process for enrolling in Medicaid remained mired in glitches. And for President Obama´s efforts to expand health coverage that´s a major problem. To reach would-be Medicaid recipients, the Affordable Care Act relies on potential enrollees being able to effectively navigate the law´s website to enroll. And

John Kerry, our secretary of state, is very angry with Israel. “Poof,” he said on Tuesday — describing how Israel destroyed his “peace process” the other week. Just like that. The first thing to say is that if a peace process can go “poof,” it can’t have been much of a peace process. Any serious discussion in which two parties are motivated to reach a negotiated arrangement wouldn’t be susceptible to going up in smoke all at once. That would indicate it never had any form or substance to begin with. And how on earth was it Israel who made

The award is the “Jefferson Muzzle,” which the administration won for spying on the news media and limiting journalists’ access to Obama. The “coveted” awards announced Wednesday by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression are presented to people and institutions that engage in the most egregious affronts to the First Amendment.

Congress´s investigation into IRS political targeting accelerated Wednesday, with a referral for the criminal prosecution of a former Treasury official and new evidence to back it up. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp recommends the Justice Department proceed on three probable criminal actions taken by former director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. The letter, which was endorsed in a party-line Ways and Means vote Wednesday morning, discloses new evidence suggesting that Ms. Lerner used her position to single out conservative groups for scrutiny not applied to left-leaning groups.

Some people can’t take “no” for an answer. Often that’s an admirable quality. But when you are a witness at the center of a congressional investigation, and the “no” reflects the House Oversight Committee’s decision not to accept your refusal to testify, then it’s not quite so simple. And that is where Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the IRS scandal, now finds herself. Lerner’s case is by now well known. From 2006 to 2013, she was the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, vested with power to decide which nonprofit organizations receive tax-exempt status, which

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!
