I <3 Ted Cruz


From what I have seen and read, last night’s big winner was Candy Crowley because she is no longer the worst debate moderator ever.

Meanwhile, this is from John Cole over at Buffoon Juice:

The Face of Extremism

This is not getting enough coverage, IMHO. On the day of the budget deal to handle a number of national priorities and to raise the debt limit, Ben Carson had this to say:

In a new interview with The Hill, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said he would not sign any budget deal that raised the debt ceiling if he is elected president.

Carson, who has surpassed Donald Trump in polls of Iowa voters, expressed frustration that Congress waits until the debt limit approaches to negotiate budget deals.

“If I’m elected, in January of 2017, we will begin to address the budget immediately,” Carson said. “We’re not going to wait until October or November to do it, when we’re backed against the wall. And I will make it very, very clear that there will not be any budget signed that increases our debt ceiling. It will have to be done.”

Carson said Congressional Republicans wait too long to negotiate deals to suppress federal spending.

“They do the same thing every year,” Carson said. “They wait until their backs are up against the wall and the gun is to their head, and you either raise the debt ceiling or we default and the world falls apart.”

“Why do we do that?” he continued. “I think the time to address that is at the beginning of the fiscal period, not at the end, because then you have other options. Now, they wait until it’s too late to do anything else, and we keep raising the debt and compromising the future of the next generation. It is craziness.”

Since regardless what happens between now and then and who is elected President, come Spring 2017, the debt limit will need to be raised again. We’ve already discussed that Ben Cartson doesn’t seem to understand what the debt limit actually is, and how this is different from the Republicans holding the US and global economy hostage. What Ben Carson is telling you, and our bobbleheads apparently don’t believe or think is just boilerplate election babble, is quite simple. It’s this:

“Elect me, and I kill the hostage.”

It’s really that simple. And with this lunatic, it’s not just talk. He’s really simpleminded enough that he believes this shit.

Notice that John Cole doesn’t explain WHY he thinks Carson is wrong, he just calls him a simpleminded lunatic. The term for that is “projection”.

Refusing to raise the debt limit does not mean the United States will default on its debts. It just means that the federal government can’t borrow any more money. They will still have more than enough revenues to continue servicing the debt.

Refusing to raise the debt limit would force the federal government to start living within its means. That means spending cuts and/or tax increases. Only in Progworld is that some kind of crazy radical idea.

      as one tweeter commented:
      “no media bias”
      I’m certain he meant to add a question mark, because the democrats still don’t understand sarcasm.

  2. Venus says:

    Carson isn’t my first choice (1) I’ve been pretty clear that this election is mainly entertainment door me because I don’t give a fuck and (2) that said, Cruz, Carly, Trump, and Carson (in that order) are the only ones I’ll even vote for as a “Fuck you” to the political elite.

    Nonetheless, the left making out like an actual BRAIN SURGEON is a moron shows the depth of their own stupidity. I can’t even with these idiots any more.

    • elliesmom says:

      While I might agree with someone who says being a brain surgeon and being the president require different skill sets, it’s asinine to say a brain surgeon, and a celebrated one at that, is a moron. Likewise, idiots don’t get elected governor. They may not always succeed at the level we expect, but they aren’t stupid. Jimmy Carter lacked the skill set to be a successful president, but he is a smart man. Likewise, Obama may be corrupt and owned by people who don’t have our country’s best interests at heart, but I don’t believe he’s stupid. Not the genius he’s made out to be, but not stupid.

        Trust me, it takes more than good looks or the color of one’s skin to run a department at Hopkins…

        • swanspirit says:

          ^THIS^ Yes even departments at Hopkins have budgets, and after you do the politics to work out the budget allowance for your department; then you have to actually do the budget, because what you do not want, is to need some vital piece of equipment or crucial supplies, and have central supply tell you it is TOS. (Temporarily out of stock )

      • Myiq2xu says:

        When the Progs talk about ANYBODY on the Right (followers and leaders) they always assert that the person is one or more of the following:

        1. Stupid
        2. Evil
        3. Insane
        4. Corrupt

        Progs will never concede that Cons can be intelligent, informed, sane and/or good-hearted.

      • Venus says:

        I totally agree — disagree with Carson’s positions all day long; buy saying he’s “not smart” is idiotic. Dunning Kruger effect, maybe?

        • lyn says:

          The same goes for those people who say Ted Cruz is stupid. The hate burns bright in them.

          • Propertius says:

            I don’t see how anyone could accuse Cruz of being stupid. I disagree with the guy pretty vehemently, but I think he’s one of the smartest guys in government. I think you’d have to blind and deaf to miss that.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Awww, ever since Alan Dershowitz (D-Harvard) called Cruz the smartest student he’s ever had, yet didn’t even remember Obama(a computer glitch kept him out of his class or something?) the Obot butthurt still burns. I’m not sure I know anybody on the right who thinks he’s stupid or hates him, unless they’re too entrenched on the Outsider train.

    • 1539days says:

      Lindsey Graham referred to Carson as a guy “who tried to kill someone when he was 14.” I hope he enjoys the kiddie tables debates, because that’s where he’s staying until he drops out.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Wow, low blow and it didn’t even make the fauxrage news cycle today. If anything, Carson has ghetto creds, uglies and all, and will be the President who tells BLM to sit down, shut up, read a book and clean up your act. Our police officers will also feel safe to keep their neighborhoods safe again. (I can find something to love about all the candidates, but haven’t given the kiddie table much thought since Carly graduated).

  3. votermom says:

    The CNBC debate was like the 3rd book in the Hunger Games.
    The MSM are throwing attack monkeys and poison gas at the candidates expecting them to turn on each other to survive; instead the candidates start going all Katniss on them.

  4. DandyTIger says:

    The bias and contempt and rudeness of the moderators actually united the GOP debaters. They ended up spending more time supporting each other and attacking Hillary than they might have. Best debate so far. Also, Bush is toast. He basically ended his campaign when he attacked Rubio and got squashed. So fun.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    Great timing for the first Dem debate to get the Bad Lip Reading treatment. So funny:

  6. DeniseVB says:

    BOOM !

    last night’s big winner was Candy Crowley because she is no longer the worst debate moderator ever

    The jackholes asking the questions were field dressed several times last night. You are correct klown, Candy lost her crown.

  9. helenk3 says:

    why do people forget what NBC stands for

  10. DeniseVB says:

    So I’m watching the House Leader vote on Cspan (muted) as Pelosi’s votes pile up. Could the Ryan protest votes make her the next … gasp… Leader ? Definitely a partisan line voting trend and sadly, the Dems have no one else to put up ? This is hard to watch.

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Whew, Ryan elected. The Dems are pathetic, Pelosi ? Also, not understanding why some conservatives have the sads ?

    John Lewis and Colin Powell each received one vote, snort.

    What did I miss? Are the Dems walking out?

    • leslie says:

      Pelosi is still speaking… I can’t listen to her quote any of our Founding Fathers’ doctrines. Such a hypocrite.

    I’ve always liked the guy, now don’t disappoint me 😀

    We have a winner.

    Online polls: Trump won third GOP debate

    Donald Trump emerged the victor of Wednesday night’s third GOP presidential debate, according to flash polls of three websites’ users.


  16. helenk3 says:

    can you imagine how much Cruz as president and Ryan as speaker can accomplish? they are both smart young men. They are not into the “old way” of doing things. They are willing to listen and learn and make informed decisions and get people to work together.
    For the first time in a long time, I am beginning to have some hope the DC might become part of the US again and put America first

  17. DandyTIger says:

    Bush in a nutshell: I’m a terrible performer and candidate, and you don’t tend to like me as a person, but trust me, I can govern, because I’m a Bush.

  18. Mt.Laurel says:

    Had hoped to get you some good pics of how beautiful autumn is in the Laurel Highlands but life did not see fit to give me the opportunity. My mother has been living with me for about five years and until a few months ago was doing well for her age (93). Dementia/Sundowners has really taken its toll. She is now in the hospital in intensive care after hip simple cracked while we were visiting. They did do surgery – to not -as the surgeon put it – would be sheer torture but she is very high risk. I am hoping I can just get her to the next phase and out of the hospital into a more calm environment. Please keep her in your thoughts.

  19. Mt.Laurel says:

    On topic
    I have been keeping up with the posts here as therapy. I have to deal with lots of Obots in my family. I have taken my own advise and just say that living so close to the cesspool of DC, I have my fill of political craziness and prefer to avoid those topics especially under such stressful circumstances. Oddly enough, the area actually voted for McCain (well Palin) and then Mitt. It is very mixed so I am sure their Obot positions must have to meet with resistance at work and elsewhere. I have been adding “Daddy always said anyone who follows a party blindly is giving up their voice”. That keeps them hushed for the most part. I will say their reaction to Trump is fascinating.

    Happy National Cat Day, Klown. I see Uber out if SF will deliver you another, if you wish.

  21. DeniseVB says:

    Wow, our Votermom certainly carries great powers on Twitter, I can feel her powers now ….. 😀

  22. DeniseVB says:

    This poor child … vetted, probed, coached and planted … for this twittable moment. I wouldn’t have had her ask this question, maybe something more age appropriate like “What was your favorite country to visit as Secretary of State?” and Hillary’s prepared response would have been “All of Them because I like everybody except those mean Republicans who don’t like women and homosexuals.” /snort.

      Ugh. USA Today. All those *Fact Checks* sounded like they were written by the DNC. I know for a fact that Trump was forced to set up a donation page because the grassroots supporters wouldn’t stop sending him money. They had to start tracking it per FEC rules….or else! LOL. I really hate the media, especially that Hillary’s getting such a Yuuuuuge! pass. 🙂

    • 49erDweet says:

      If only fact check had been alive during the 2008 campaign……..

    Buffoon Juice:

    If you lived through the 2000 election and watched any of the post-debate hot takes on TV last night, you might have experience déjà vu while observing the blooming of a massive media man-crush on Rubio. It echoes the late 20th century Beltway realization that they liked the cut of that folksy, plain-spoken cowpoke GWB’s jib. Is Rubio a callow fool and a liar? Of course he is, but that doesn’t matter a whit.

    George W. Bush wasn’t a Texas cowpoke in real-life either but rather the no-account wastrel scion of Northeastern bluebloods. The Bushies may have aspired to create their own reality, but the Beltway does it for real. Think they can’t turn a brainless, mendacious haircut who mouths plutocrat-friendly platitudes for profit into a scrappy, dreamy underdog who is heroically building a bridge to the 21st & 1/16th century? It’s what they do.

    This is really ironic coming from an Obama follower.

    This is getting mean.

    Jeb Bush’s Campaign Blueprint

    A 112-page internal document provided to U.S. News includes more dirt on Marco Rubio, Iowa vote goals and a January advertising plan.


  31. mothy67 says:

    DOUBLE QUADRUPLE fuck. I just watched The Walking Dead. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  32. helenk3 says:

    they were having a discussion at No Quarter about Jeb and Rubio.
    this was my comment

    did not plan to vote for either one. Do not want another Bush and for some reason and I can not tell you why Rubio was not my cup of tea.

    My original choice was a Walker -Cruz ticket. Since Walker quit, I want a Cruz-Carley or Cruz- Walker or something that would blow the minds of the dems a Cruz-Romney ticket. Wouldn’t that be fun to watch

  33. DeniseVB says:

    Ok, after a full 24 hour cycle (and some merlot the last 2 hours) of news coverage/ANALysis of the GOPCNBCDNC debate last night, here’s my favs so far….yeah, probably in this order….

    Trump/Cruz/Fiorina/Carson/Rubio/Christie/Huckabee. If there were more, they should drop out NOW. On the Dem side, I’m still feeling the Bern 😉 In my worst nightmare, he’s still more honest than Hillary.

  34. Myiq2xu says:

    Another Koolaid victim:

    UncleNine • 7 minutes ago
    Apparently, Carson is ahead in Iowa? If he should win the Iowa Republican caucuses, Iowa will become irrelevant as a primary state for the foreseeable future. Ben Carson will not win New Hampshire, or any other primary election. Nobody can take this dolt seriously for very much longer. In any case, and no matter -who- wins the GOP nomination next year, just like in 2008, the self-destructive, amateur, silly, masturbatory Republican primary process will ensure the loss of the White House, yet again, for the Republicans. What the Democrats must focus on is winning back a big number of state governments to end gerrymandering forever, and to overturn Citizens United.

    Do your talking points come from Hillary or straight from DNC headquarters?
