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.
