Ted Cruz: "I’m pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama"

Heh. Too funny to pass up, and sadly apt given the Mittster’s “the president exudes an air of likability and friendliness, which is endearing” nonsense.

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, presented two viewpoints  and directions for the country,” he said. “And then inevitably, there are these  mandarins of politics, who give the voice: ‘Don’t show any contrasts. Don’t rock  the boat.’ So by the third debate, I’m pretty certain Mitt Romney actually  French-kissed Barack Obama.

“I have no doubt that there is a focus group somewhere of undecided Ohio  voters who have been living in a cave for the last 30 years, who decided they  liked that,” Cruz continued. “‘Don’t show any disagreement whatsoever with the  president. Don’t rock the boat. Just be a nice guy.’”


Cruz said centrist strategies were doomed to fail Republicans, who should  instead focus on a simple motto: “Our ideas work. Theirs don’t.”

I can’t disagree with any of that. Senator-elect Cruz, like Governor Palin, tells it like it is and isn’t one to make nice with those on the Left who are hell-bent on turning American into an also-ran. Democrat-lite loses every time it’s tried, and those in the GOP Establishment who continue to argue for that approach must be ignored if the Republican Party is to survive. Conservatism didn’t lose on November 6th, it wasn’t even advocated. Ted Cruz has a "Palinesque" knack for using humor to get his point across. The more I learn about him, the more I like the guy. The Governor hit a home run with her "game-changing" endorsement of Cruz in his race against the GOPe’s preferred candidate, David Dewhurst.

    Daaaang, how I envy you guys in Texas. What I would give for a Senator like Cruz, but instead we here in Illinois have Mark Kirk.
    While I’m impressed and happy with his triumph over such a devastating stroke, and glad he’s able to "return to work" come January…..I am not impressed, happy or glad with what his first order of business will be…..

    "Banning sewage dumping in the Great Lakes. That’s my priority for this Congress," Kirk said.

    Priorities….I tell ya.

     Hey, does that mean The Mittster, along with New jersey Fat Slob of a buffet buster , Chris Christie were in Bed with President Barack Obama? Somebody help me pull these knives out of my back, Please.

    "Conservatism didn’t lose on November 6th, it wasn’t even advocated."      Amen.

    • Kalena

      The funniest part of the election was the main stream press calling Romney a right wing extremist.  LOL

  • Right_Wingnut

    When will Yankee4Palin show up to insult Doug like she did to me last night after I posted this.

    • socon

      Did she scream at you that you weren’t loyal to Sarah Palin because Sarah wouldn’t say something like this about the Mittster?

      Truth hurts.  RINO Romney was a weak willie candidate.


      • Right_Wingnut

        A bunch of blah, blah about how she feels sorry for me about how I get off on posting something like this, and I should be talking about the Communist in the WH. Typical Yankee BS.

        Complete, of course, with chopped up sentences, bad grammar, and several misspelled words.

        • socon

          Can’t hide behind Sarah anymore.  I always knew it was BS.

          That was a pretty tough comment by Cruz.  I wonder if a little part of it was payback for Mitt’s nastiness toward Sarah.    I loved it.

    • GetWhatYouPayFor

      Just Like the Yankees, all the money in the world couldn’t help Romney. They were both big time losers this season, "severely"!

  • palintologist

    Conservatives are finally coming ’round to the realization that Gov. Bob McDonnell, R – Va., is a RINO.  Heck, we at C4P could’ve told them that from the get-go.  For those who may not have been on this board at the time, when McDonnell was campaigning, he was gung-ho for Sarah’s offer to come out for him.  Then, he suddenly changed his tune.  Seems Ed Gillespie (of the Tokyo Rove School of "Conservatism") came to town and convinced Bob that this was one star he didn’t want to hitch his wagon to. 

    If I don’t miss my guess, ole Bob, who has recently admitted Obama has a "mandate" (!) so VA is going to start implementing ZeroCare exchanges as well as other RINO gaffes, is all washed up in politics. 

  • conservativemama

    I really like Cruz too.  The more I hear of him, the more I like.

    • socon

       Tough Talkin’ Texan!   I’m a fan.

  • mike3e4r7

    Wow.  I’m trying desperately to get that image out of my mind.  Thanks Ted! 

    I agree he makes some valid criticizms of the Romney campaign, but I don’t accept the narrative that it’s what cost him the election.  What cost him the election was fraud, pure and simple.  We can’t allow the passing of time to forget what our own eyes saw in this campaign – a HUGE enthusiasm gap in favor of Romney.  The stories of fraud and irregularities that have been revealed and continue to go unreported by the leftist media, convince me of that more and more each day.

    There may be little we can do about it right now, but we shouldn’t allow the ‘consensus’ of the talking heads to cause us to forget it.

    • socon

      There was a lot of fraud.  Four weeks of early voting?  Ridiculous.

      But in the end the rich, white plutocrat Romney wasn’t the tough street fighter we needed this election if we wanted to beat the Thugocrats.  Mitt never had a chance, especially after he stupidly cut Sarah, the Tea Party and others out of the convention.

      The Democrats outsmarted the RNC.  We’d better smarten up fast and improve our election strategies or we’re toast.

      I don’t know anyone smarter, tougher  and with more integrity than the gifted Sarah Palin.  If she had been given a fair chance, I believe she could have beaten the little thug from Chicago.

  • MaMcGriz

    Yikes what a hugely cringeworthy thought.

    I have to get that image out of my mind. 

    • socon

      How about I inject Krispey Kreme Christie into your nightmare?


      • conservativemama

        Ohhhhhhhhhhh……………..not nice.  But funny. Menage a gross.

        • socon

          lol!  Good one. 

          Quite horrific actually.

    Ann Coulter, so called Conservative, and others in the GOP establishment wanted Chris Christie for POTUS. Then she wanted Mitt when Christie turned it down. Both are Moderates. Both were said to be unbeatable especially against Obama’s record. Well, we all know what Christie did to sink our ship a few days before the election. And we all know that Romney ran an inept campaign praising Obama for being such a nice guy. So here is what I’m going to say. Ann Coulter, shut up already. It’s obvious you know a lot less than you pretend to know. That goes for the rest of you GOP elite who know nothing. It’s time for real Conservatism to make a comeback. Time for Conservatives, like Ronald Reagan, to draw a line in the sand and stand up for the principles of our founding fathers. Time to do what we did just two short years ago in 2010. Time to take back our country from the Socialists and from the GOP establishment.

  • generictrainee

    Cruz is spot on, he’s not one of the squish panderers. Palin could give him a shout out.  

    • everythingispolitics

      Cruz is Princeton undergrad and Harvard Law. Don’t get me wrong. I hope he does well, but if you thonk he’s not thinking about money, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I can sell you.
