Why Romney and Bush want Cruz to mumble like they do



Mitt Romney is in love with Ted Cruz. So is Jeb Bush. They both must be, or else why would they care enough to offer advice to Ted Cruz in his campaign to become President?

Appearing on the Chad Hasty Show on radio station KFYO in Lubbock, Texas, Cruz condemned both Romney and Bush “[for] talking about ‘now take it easy guys you don’t really need to oppose this Iranian nuclear deal quite so forcefully.’”
According to Cruz, both are members of the Washington foreign policy establishment and are unwilling to oppose the deal with sufficient vigor.
Earlier this week, Cruz told a roundtable that “if this [Iran nuclear] deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism,” referring to the sanctions relief provided in the deal in exchange for curbs on the Iranian nuclear program.

Hasty asked Cruz about a tweet written by Romney in response to the Texas senator’s comments, saying Cruz “is way over the line on the Obama terrorism charge,” and that his rhetoric “[h]urts the cause.”


Cruz said Romney hurt his chances in the 2012 presidential election by making the same mistake as Bush: toning down his attacks on Obama. Cruz pointed to a moment during a presidential debate when Obama insisted that he had called the 2012 Benghazi attack terrorism immediately, even though many conservatives believe he was slow to identify the attack as an act of terror.

When Obama fired back at Romney in the debate, in Cruz’s retelling, the former Massachusetts governor responded, “I’ll just kind of rearrange the pencil on the podium here,” rather than engaging vigorously with the president.


So what is this really about? Obviously neither Romney nor Bush care about Ted Cruz. They are worried that he is damaging the Republican brand.

The kettle is calling the pot black! How ironic is that?

Romney and Bush have the same view of the American political electorate; there are conservatives, who are presumed to be loyal voters and don't need to be catered to; there are liberals, who support the Democrats, and then there is the vast, moderate middle, and this is the group Republicans must appeal to. In Romney and Bush's view, this mushy middle is turned off by direct attacks on Democrats. They believe such attacks don't look "grownup" and that the tone turns off people.

That's the strategy Romney employed in 2012, and he used it to great success to win nearly 2/3 of the electoral votes that Barack Obama did. He wants to share the secret of that success with Ted Cruz. Instead of being embarrassed, and hiding in a corner somewhere for losing what should have been an easy victory over an imperial president presiding over a disastrous economy, Romney is the senior sag

The left's racket to indoctrine young children into the joys of gay sex and transvestitism is to wrap it in terms like "tolerance" and "anti-bullying". Who could be against anti-bullying? But of course we all know that was is called "anti-bullying" is usually a course of indoctrination on sewing phony testicles in women's underwear or eating feces.

The real reason why Obama is pushing a bad deal with Iran


As more and more details of the deal with Iran come out, it only gets worse and worse. There will be no snap inspections. There are secret side deals with the United Nations that we don't know about. The Iranians will continue to enrich uranium. And develop ICBM's. And fund terrorist groups who will kill Americans.

The very real consequences of the effort to remove John Boehner


North Carolina Republican Representative Mark Meadows has filed a motion to remove John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Technically it's called a motion to "vacate the chair", though it feels like the chair has been vacant for some time already, given the absence of any meaningful opposition to Obama's agenda. Meadows is unhappy with Boehner's unwillingness to fight for Republican or Conservative values (which used to be the same thing).
