I don't know guys.

If your point is that Cruz looks like, and his voice sounds like, a guy straight out of central casting for "evil conservative" - I'd agree with you. So does Rand Paul, btw.

But I'm not seeing any evidence that Cruz is any more a sociopath than many politicians, including Barack Obama.

If I could just take any candidate and make them president, I would choose Cruz. He is the smartest and most principled conservative on the stage.

what metric are you working with here? he definitely thinks he is smarter than you, me and everybody, but is there any data that supports this? i think he might be a dunning-kruger domer.

Correct. But smart people don't clerk for the Supreme Court, either. Really smart people do.

The libtards will disagree with Cruz's ideology, just as I would disagree with that of the liberal SC Justices and their clerks, but I would not disagree that they are really, really smart people. Cruz was also a debate champion at Princeton. He then became the Solicitor General for the State of Texas (the guy who argues before the Supreme Court) before becoming a Senator at the age of 42.

So yes, he is the smartest person in the GOP field. That's doesn't make him likable or electable - his lack of warmth, physical appearance, and tone of voice when speechifying are major weaknesses - but it sure doesn't mean he's dumb or a sociopath. Good grief.

Right.  But there are plenty of other lawyers running for president -- they didn't clerk for the Supreme Court, and it's not because they turned down the opportunity. 

Criticize Cruz all you want for his views or pandering or sinister intentions or for being out of touch or whatever, but the dude has an incredibly high aptitude.

So turns out making a campaign ad with you family of non-politicians can lead to some pretty awkward footage, especially when a news outlet makes a greatest hits montage of the most awkward moments. Actually, that seems pretty normal.

The most interesting thing I learned about this is that campaigns make this raw footage available so pacs can legally use it. Unfortunately, I'm sure the Clinton team would rather just break the law than allow any rough cut footage to leak. Gotta hide the wires.

I want to see Rubio's next.

He said we should bomb like we did during the Gulf War he also says that he didn't intend to say we should carpet bomb the entire area and kill civilians but we should bomb targets. Does that stupid sonofabitch know there were nearly 4,000 civilian deaths in six months in Iraq during the Gulf War? And if he wants to just hit strategic targets how in the hell is that different than what we're doing now? How does anyone take this freak show seriously?

Cruz acknowledged the use of the term "carpet bomb" was a mistake, because it was. That term has a specific meaning - indiscriminate destruction. He was trying to make the point that we should be dramatically increasing our air strikes, and I happen to agree with him on that. Yes, this means that more civilians will die - that especially tends to happen when the enemy deliberately hides among the civilian population. That doesn't mean it isn't necessary to weaken ISIS.

Yes, fighting the terrorists is what the terrorists want! :runaway: Again, some civilian deaths are inevitable. War, and particularly these types of wars where the enemy deliberately hids among civilians, requires a balancing between inflicting maximum damage on the enemy and keeping civilian casualties as low as possible. In my opinion, Obama has erred much too far towards avoiding civilian casualties, to the point that his air campaign has been relatively ineffective.

You can't have it both ways. Some republicans, and I realize that this is mostly rhetoric and that frustrates me, act as if there are massive complexes of ISIS facilities in suburbs of these places. So if you want to do what the republican candidates say we should be doing you are going to have an overwhelming number of civilian casualties. Even in Iraq, when Saddam did have stand alone military complexes that we targeted, we still killed 4000 people in six months. It's accepted that the ISIS infrastructure is not nearly as organized and much more spread throughout the general populace. So then you're left with this pumpkin headed bitch saying on multiple occasions that he would carpet bomb this region and find out if sand glows in the dark, then when pressed on it backtracks, when that's exactly what his policy proposes. If Cruz is as smart as pubs say he is he has to know that dropping thousands of bombs on Raqqa would result in tens of thousands of civilian casualties and would likely result in an entire region with Russian support galvanizing against us and we certainly would not have the support of anyone else other than Israel. So does Cruz not know this or is he pandering to the majority of his voting base that are too stupid and/or filled with blind hate for brown people to take 10 minutes to read?

It's accepted that the ISIS infrastructure is not nearly as organized and much more spread throughout the general populace. So then you're left with this pumpkin headed bitch saying on multiple occasions that he would carpet bomb this region and find out if sand glows in the dark, then when pressed on it backtracks, when that's exactly what his policy proposes. If Cruz is as smart as pubs say he is he has to know that dropping thousands of bombs on Raqqa would result in tens of thousands of civilian casualties and would likely result in an entire region with Russian support galvanizing against us and we certainly would not have the support of anyone else other than Israel. So does Cruz not know this or is he pandering to the majority of his voting base that are too stupid and/or filled with blind hate for brown people to take 10 minutes to read?

Ok. Take a breath. Balance. It's about balance. I don't think Obama's balance is working very well.

It doesn't appear so but my frustration stems from the fact that no one is willing to say what the right thing is and it's that this is a new threat and we don't quite know how to go about dealing with this without alienating some partners in the middle east and potentially creating more enemies. The prudent thing to do is to for now keep hitting targets that we know exists and just give the intelligence time to work before we can do more, but the sad state of American politics does not suffer prudence and patience. Jeb has essentially acknowledged this, so has Lindsey Graham but who cares. I'm fairly sure Marco, Grimace, Carly, Kasich, and Rand all know it too but are too big of cowards to admit it. BTW if this was a republican administration in an election year I'm certain that the republicans and a few democrats would still do the same thing.

if you want more bombs, you need more targets.  if you want more targets, you need people on the ground identifying those targets.  you can't see everything from a satellite.  if someone is talking about increasing the bombing without sending ground forces, they're either engaging in political theatre or lying.

How do you fight a religious idea without killing all those that relate to it or are a small step away from relating to it?  Do we want to do that?  I don't think we do.  The best thing we could do is get to the areas that ISIS hasn't gotten to yet, and make the ppl in those places not want ISIS in control.  How we do that?  No idea.  I know mostly nothing about the daily culture, living conditions, etc of those in the middle east.  I don't think we win against ISIS.  The ppl of the Middle East have to do it.  We can help by improving their conditions to live in and thus remove discontent, or we can help in other ways, but bombing a city full of ppl isn't going to work.  The surrounding states that haven't been taken over should have the lead role in this as they have the highest risk as of right now.  We should be supporting those states.

Bombing is such a lazy response and a crutch of stupid pandering fuckface politicians.

Why Trump - and I think to maybe an even greater extent, Cruz - can probably beat Hillary: they'll bring a ton of angry folks to the polls who either don't usually vote or have voted Democrat in the past. If Hillary loses even a couple rust belt states like PA, OH, and MI, she's toast. Cruz might be better situated than Trump to both bring these folks into the fold and hold onto the "establishment" vote.

I'm not talking about the primaries. I agree that Trump's support may not materialize at the primaries, which is what the article suggests.

As for the general, I think Hillary will perform worse than the other Democrats in the rust belt states, and I believe a hard-liner on immigration enforcement will perform better than recent Republicans in this states. Combine this factors and a Trump or Cruz could very well win OH, PA, and perhaps Michigan, which could very well decide the election.

I'm simply making an observation that Clinton is losing or in a dead heat with several GOP candidates despite having far greater name recognition.

A great many people, maybe most, don't even pay attention to politics until a few weeks before the presidential elections. But everybody knows who Hillary Clinton is, and most already have an opinion of her. Thus, she has very little upside, or room for improvement. And her negatives are atrocious. By contrast, candidates such as Cruz and Rubio have far lower name recognition at this point and far more upside. Running even at this point in the race against candidates very few people know anything about should be very concerning to Democrats.

You think Joe in Toledo gives two shits about the Rio Grande? The ones that do are already republican voters anyway. Your people need to find new voters in those states and using illegal aliens as a scare tactic isn't going to do it if the democrats can convince voters that republican policy is pushing American jobs the other way over the border.

You're getting awfully touchy about this. We'll just have to disagree. I think jobs and the economy are far more important to most voters than social issues. And I think there is real (and justified) fear among "blue collar" voters about immigration killing jobs and driving down wages.

I also think working class voters don't particularly want a woman president - especially Hillary. Despite her being the overwhelming favorite for the nomination, many key unions have withheld their endorsements. Now of course she'll ultimately get them, but the fact that they're so reticent is telling.

Combine these two factors, and it is quite likely that Hillary will do worse in rust belt states than Barack Obama did. If you just want to cover your ears and shout curse words, go for it.

I don't recall saying what Reagan et. al did was good, but thanks for the reaching back into the dusty chapters of the Capt. Obvious playbook Whack-A-Doodle.
Isn't the Gipper the standard bearer for Republicans or did you miss the last *all* debates?

I guess from that prism of history, the Gipper did a little meddling but wasn't big on regime change, nor really into bombing countries into submission in order to break them up.

It's great when you have your own tactics turned against you. 


*HEY LOOK OVER THERE AND IGNORE ALL THIS crap!*

Pro tip: 99% of people here you think are on the "left" probably don't like Hilrod and would only vote *for* her by voting against the 'Pub candidate.  That doesn't mean we support her, but are scared to death of what you want in exchange.

Try making sense . . . for once.

Ted Cruz is positively tame compared to what Hillary has already done, and yet is now once again trying to fool the usual Dem Lemmings and others into believing she never did any of the stuff.   Only in Dem Lemming world could Hillary Clinton stand up at a Dem debate and extol her Libyan policy (just one example) and not get absolutely excoriated in every single corner of the political sphere in which she inhabits.

I believe the last government shutdown occurred under Obama, and the credit downgrade happened under Obama . . . an awful president that sadly "hired" Hillary to integrate even worse foreign policy.

 :lol:  :facepalm: In crazy Edna-land, this is a "tap out:"

Yeah those are arguably "lawless" acts which are debateable.  You could mildly claim he wasn't acting in a constitutional manner since he isn't upholding his oath the way you want him to, but you still failed to list anything that smacked against the constitution itself. If you really want to educate yourself read up on Jackson and get back to me when Obama tells the SCOTUS to stuff it and then proceeds to destroy a civilization.

:lol: I'm going to nominate this one for the Libtard HOF. Here's the thing, silly, the President's duty to faithfully execute the laws isn't in his oath - it's in the Constitution. Article II Section 3: "He shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed." He takes an oath, written verbatim in the Constitution, to faithfully execute his office. It is the Constitution that establishes the separation of powers between the Legislature, Executive, and Judiciary. When Obama does not take care that the laws are faithfully executed or creates his own laws unilaterally - as he has in the examples presented above - he is being unconstitutional.

And :lol: at reaching all the back to Andrew Jackson! :lol:
Another post of misdirection and obfuscation. I'll take it as your tap out.

Dax is absolutely right.  Obama and MG and Kerry are totally to blame for causing a cauldron of chaos to develop in the Mideast that let ISIS develop.  When this pissadent didn't bomb the ISIS oil wells because he thought the environment was more important than protecting America, he proved he is a weak excuse for a commander.

Interesting question. I do it because it is his given his name and his father is on record saying he's upset that his son rejected his given name. Do I wish he wasn't running away from his Latino heritage, hell yes, and his father feels the same way.

i was not implying that you were, just wondering why. i don't pay enough attention to him to know that he is running away from his heritage. it's ironic because if he was a (D) instead of (R) there would be herp derps calling him Rafael everywhere, but for a different reason.

Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: CNS on February 01, 2016, 11:52:12 AM
Sure.  however, the epi I mentioned was specific to the religious far right.  It was about a popular evangelical radio host and his frustration with other evangelicals in this state(NC, iirc) and their love for trump.  The story started off saying that he holds enough sway that politicians usually court him for his endorsement prior to running.  Cruz did that and he was full on for Cruz.  Then, over time, he was inundated with pro trump participation in his call in show and he couldn't/can't argue what he perceives as sense into his listeners.  The guy is a Doctoral pastor and has thoughts about giving up his show because of this.  He is pretty upset how twisted the populace is with trump and religion. 
Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: MakeItRain on February 01, 2016, 12:08:48 PM
Hmmm, interesting I wonder if this is a regional phenomenon amongst the religious far right or a national one. For instance it seems like the Sammy fans in Kansas would be much more aligned with Cruz. Don't people know Trump is pro choice?

The radio pastor said that he thinks it is simply everyone's emotions taking control and their brains justifying the rest.  I agree.  He said that the amt of anger that he is hearing is new and substantial.  Trump is drawing that out and blinding everyone from their rational logical thoughts with their own emotional response.  It is pretty amazing, imo.

Yeah, listening to that made me sad and pissed simultaneously.  I wholly disagree that something like infidelity has anything to do with political office.  The tabloid-like transition is the worst.  I hated the reasoning given by the journalist interviewed for why the press made such a switch.  How he said they all felt like they should have dug deeper and should have known and warned someone.  How he made it sound like they were asleep at the wheel.  I mean, the comparison of this to Watergate and Nixon's paranoia is outrageous.  That is such bullshit.  Dig deeper, as a journalist, and if anything important is there, report it.  That doesn't include if he is a good husband, dad, son, etc.  That is just a bullshit cop out to cover up the fact that they are doing it to sell more content.   Honestly, this is the first Radiolab I have listened to that made me a little angry with Radiolab for presenting it all like this and not calling bullshit on that dumbass.

Agreed, and I think part of what made me uncomfortable about was Cruz's insistence in continuing the obviously staged moment.  I remember being a pain because my Dad traveled a lot when I was growing up.  Most parents would understand, but this moment just continued in a really weird way.

Yeah.  If we had better boundaries about this we could have a great president like Colin Powell (family privacy I mean). It would be great if people kept this in the background if they are doing a good job.  Oddly though I don't like Clinton for his lying simply because he was under oath.  It's weird that the process got that far to begin with though.

One of the best ads I have seen was actually for a Canadian election (I think the guy they were against is current PM anyway). It was a bunch of people sitting in a board room like they were a hiring committee and were talking about the guy and decided he just didn't have enough experience to be offered the job. Jeb could do something similar with Rubio, but Cruz couldn't (cause pot/kettle)

In a lot of movies that take place in the future there's two classes of people, citizens and everyone else.  To become a Citizen you typically have to contribute something to society (e.g., enlist in the military to fight against aliens, devote your life to civil service, pay taxes, etc.). If you don't want to do whatever is required to be a citizen, no biggie, you just don't get to vote.

I used to think it was just an interesting, common, predictable sci fi thingy.  Now I look at how stupid and useless many of the people are who vote, and how they rough ridin' register bums to vote and then absentee vote them, and it doesn't seem so far fetched.

If you contribute nothing to society, why should you get to vote?  Why is it a birthright instead of something earned? I think if it had value it would have importance, and we wouldn't be in the predicament we're in today.

We do not technically have a democracy, we have a representative republic. This representative republic is increasingly undermined by powers delegated to bureaucracies. We don't vote on hardly anything.

I don't thinks it's in anyway unreasonable to only allow "stakeholders" the right to vote. Out society selected a representative republic as its form of government. It is free to change that form at any time. An increasingly larger segment of the voting population (which is already restricted by age, felon etc) does not participate in society, never has and never will. They simply reap the benefits of living in the country. Why should they, by birthright, be entitled to a say in who represents the people who fund or run the government?  What is so abhorent about having to earn that right? If we want people to value and hold accountable the government that rules our society, there should be some effort or sacrifice put forward to earn the most basic right of participating in that process (ie, a stakeholder).

What the metric is, I don't know. $1 in taxes paid, some civil service, teach school, highway cleanup, I don't know. I just think the idea that you're alive so you get a vote is extremely antiquated given the current state of our government and society.

I read a good article that discussed that this runs pretty deep in the hispanic community. There was a time when a lot of immigrants moved here and purposefully did not teach their children their cultural heritage in order for them to fit in. It seemed like the best idea at that time in our country. Now, there is a kind of snobbishness by those who kept their heritage. They tend to look down on those who can't speak their "native language" because it is a sign they have abandoned their heritage.

Whether or not that was Rubio's goal doesn't change that it brought that fight to the forefront. It most likely won't change a lot of voters minds, but it does show that you can't just group Rubio and Cruz together as the hispanic candidates. It shows that even in a small way, Rubio is more in touch with his heritage than Cruz is.

The idea you should have to earn the right to vote is a scary thought IMO. The biggest problem is that once you determine a certain standard should apply, there is very little stopping that standard from being ratcheted up to exclude more and more people. In fact, it's really not hard to imagine at all.

Say we've got 100 million folks who meet your proposed "right to vote" standards. What stops the top 70 million from saying, "my vote should count more than those people that are just barely hovering in the bottom few percent, let's raise the standards and cut out the bottom 30 million"? You could keep shaving off the bottom 10-40% in the same way until you are basically just left with an oligarchy.

You say our government is free to change its form at any time, but it could not do so democratically if you can remove people's right to vote by no fault of their own.

And FTR - I do think the no felons voting thing is BS.

right (i don't think it's in a small way, btw).  but at the same time most republican primary voters are not hispanics of caribbean descent.  i don't think mexicans, for example, look at or care how cuban rubio/cruz are in the same way that a cuban or even a puerto rican may.

and of course the vast majority of republican primary voters are not hispanic.  many, perhaps a majority, of non-hispanic (assuredly, some hispanic voters may as well) voters may prefer than cruz is more melting pot and less salad bowl.

Furthermore for one hundred years only white men could vote. Then society expanded the right to vote to men of color, then to women. The problem you're complaining of has existed and never come to fruition.

Because the policies of the country should be for the benefit of everyone, not just those who are determined to have "contributed."

Again, conjecture.  Im not talking about different rules for the voting and non-voting classes.

I'll just take a step back here. Can you even call it a democracy or republic when there is no right to vote? What you are proposing is probably the most fundamental change you can make in a government, which is changing voting from a right to a privilege.

Once you make that change, you allow for the possibility that a small few people have 100% of the voice in government. Maybe it wouldn't actually happen, but just creating the possibility is abhorrent enough.

Even when only white adult males could vote, it was still considered a right. Never have we had a system where ability to vote was based on variable (and almost certainly arbitrary) factors.

When the constitution was drafted there were no provisions as to who could and couldn't vote do it was left up to the states. Many states required you to be a white land owner to vote but there were exceptions. I believe in New Jersey women and feed slaves could earn the right to vote. The first federal provision on who could vote didn't come until after the civil war, the 15th amendment. Which was intended to give blacks the right to vote but obviously there was more work to be done there.

I'm saying it is per se problematic because it allows for a fundamentally non-democratic system. Sure, if the population got to decide who has a voice in government it could end up better, worse, or neutral compared to how things are today, but that is a different type of government than what we have. It is also one I think is far more capable of being abused, but you don't have to believe that to see my point.

I recall hearing something similar, but I guess I always figured it was more of a defacto thing (like to prove identity) rather than an actual "show me your deed to a piece of property before you can cast your vote."

i'm pretty sure it was more of a way to keep poor people from voting.  mir obviously knows a lot about this period, perhaps he can clarify.

I'm not completely sure if that initially was the motivation or not. I think that is a slightly cynical view that the initial motive was to disenfranchise, but that very well may be the case. The poll tax era after the fifteenth amendment was clearly meant to disenfranchise after the pool of voters expanded.

I'll just take a step back here. Can you even call it a democracy or republic when there is no right to vote? What you are proposing is probably the most fundamental change you can make in a government, which is changing voting from a right to a privilege.

Once you make that change, you allow for the possibility that a small few people have 100% of the voice in government. Maybe it wouldn't actually happen, but just creating the possibility is abhorrent enough.

Even when only white adult males could vote, it was still considered a right. Never have we had a system where ability to vote was based on variable (and almost certainly arbitrary) factors.

This is more conjecture. Why would such a system necessarily involve a very few people? What is abhorrent about excluding non-particinats from participating? Why is voting a right?

It is also one I think is far more capable of being abused, but you don't have to believe that to see my point.

I've asked you several times why you think voting should be a birthright, and likewise what is abhorrent about earning the right to vote, and every time you've responded with some slippery slope unfounded conjecture that if you had to earn the right to vote we'd end up with an oligarchy. Yet, as it stands today, everyone can vote and according to bern we're spiraling towards oligarchy.

In a lot of movies that take place in the future there's two classes of people, citizens and everyone else.  To become a Citizen you typically have to contribute something to society (e.g., enlist in the military to fight against aliens, devote your life to civil service, pay taxes, etc.). If you don't want to do whatever is required to be a citizen, no biggie, you just don't get to vote.

I used to think it was just an interesting, common, predictable sci fi thingy.  Now I look at how stupid and useless many of the people are who vote, and how they rough ridin' register bums to vote and then absentee vote them, and it doesn't seem so far fetched.

If you contribute nothing to society, why should you get to vote?  Why is it a birthright instead of something earned? I think if it had value it would have importance, and we wouldn't be in the predicament we're in today.

ted cruz claimed to have the backs of first responders in his closing statement last night...but opposed and voted against the zadroga act.

The mis-information many of you operate under is staggering...

The causes of Zadroga's death are under dispute. Gerard Breton, a pathologist of the Ocean County, New Jersey medical examiner's office, conducted an autopsy in April 2006, and he reported, "It is felt with a reasonable degree of medical certainty that the cause of death in this case was directly related to the 9/11 incident." This attribution made Zadroga, 34 years old at the time of his death, the first 9/11 responder whose death was directly linked with toxic Ground Zero substances. Breton's autopsy found what he described as "unidentified foreign materials" in Zadroga's lungs, which were identified by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, D.C. as talc, cellulose, calcium phosphate, and methacrylate plastic; However, the examination did not compare the particles found in his lungs with actual dust from the World Trade Center site.

The New York City Medical Examiners Office asserted in October 2007 that Zadroga's death was not related to his time at Ground Zero, with Chief Medical Examiner Charles Hirsch and another medical examiner signing a statement that "It is our unequivocal opinion, with certainty beyond doubt, that the foreign material in your son’s lungs did not get there as the result of inhaling dust at the World Trade Center or elsewhere". Hirsch concluded that Zadroga died from self-injection of ground drugs, with Hirsch finding severe scarring in his lungs that he determined was caused by cellulose and talc granulomas and stating (through a spokesperson) that "The lung disease he had was a consequence of injecting prescription drugs".

In response to the City Medical Examiner's autopsy results, Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg stated "We wanted to have a hero, and there are plenty of heroes, it’s just in this case, science says this was not a hero" at remarks made after receiving an award from the Harvard School of Public Health, but backed away from his earlier characterization at a news conferences stating that "This was a great N.Y.P.D. officer who dedicated himself — put his life in harm’s way hundreds of times during his career — and you can use your own definition."

Hirsch's assessment runs counter to the first report, and a third assessment that was performed later by Michael Baden. even if that's correct, though, your rationale is "let's deny healthcare to all 9/11 first responders because the guy they named the bill after may have died from something else?" that's the hill you want to die on?

ha! it's essentially workers comp. when you work for a private company, the company pays that. when you work for the gov't, of course that money comes from us.

what this highlights is that Cruz doesn't care about first responders as much as he says he does. same way that republicans are eager to send young men and women off to war but don't want to pay for veteran's benefits.

I don't like Cruz, but I respectfully disagree. He begins each answer with the somewhat related talking point he wants to get out and then follows up with an answer to the question. It's a pretty effective way to make your point and get a little extra time.

It's obvious what he's doing, but it's still better than some of the candidates who end up avoiding the questions altogether. I also can't knock candidates who go over time because the moderators don't enforce crap anyway. Being polite like Carson gets you killed in this context.

they should ding people at the time limit, give them five more seconds, and then cut their mics and move on.  in fact they should just cut the mics of everyone until the moderator determines that they can speak.

it's not mandatory spending, it's allocated funds, so why the eff are you caught up on the 75-year limit? if the money isn't all spent, the remainder will get rolled back into some other program. but i'll play a little logic game with you. let's say that a first responder was pregnant at the time. if the child has medical issues as a grown up on account of their mother's exposure, shouldn't that also be covered?

Actually, being a decent human being occurs when one stands-up for taxpayers and limits how much money is extorted from them for the seemingly unending causes that liberals try to foist upon them.

Virtue occurs when YOU decide to give of your own resources to aid another human in need, NOT in using government power to force other people to give their money for those causes.

Yeah, either MIR isn't actually watching these debates or he's not listening well enough. Cruz is actually one of the very best candidates when it comes to actually answering the question asked. He'll often start the answer on a different tangent but he almost always brings it home to answer the question that was asked. He is ridiculously good in the debate format.

Quote from: n silver
The very earliest returns in Louisiana, which were substantially composed of votes cast before election day, showed Trump at 48 percent, Cruz at 23 percent, and Rubio at 20 percent. Now? It’s Trump 43, Cruz 34 and Rubio 14, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State. The differences suggest a major gap between early votes and election-day returns, with Cruz surging in the past couple of days at the expense of both Trump and Rubio.

Exactly. Cruz wins Kansas and Maine. Trump will hang on to win Louisiana and Kentucky, but he is fading fast and would have lost both states to "Crubio." While Crubio used to be a hypothetical, it is quickly becoming a reality as Rubio voters jump to Cruz earlier and in much greater numbers than expected. Very good night for Cruz. Very bad night for Trump.

MIR, you're a Sanders supporter. Don't lecture me on "math." You're also wrong, but the number of delegates earned yesterday is beside the point. Trump still holds a significant lead in delegates and will increase that lead if he ekes out winner-take-all FL, but yesterday indicates that Trump is stalling whereas the anti-Trump is coalescing behind Cruz. Trump is still the favorite, but this race just got a lot more interesting.

What? It looks like another very solid night for him. He's made the case this week that he's the only guy who can go toe to toe with Trump - and it looks like he can beat Trump or at least carry more delegates into the convention if Rubio and Kasich fold.

Meanwhile, except for the Deep South, Trump remains mired in the mid-30s.

the only way both rubio and kasich drop out is if they both lose their home states.  if they both lose their home states, trump is going to have a very sizable delegate lead.

i'm not sure if cruz's game is to hope kasich wins and then cut a deal with him or if he thinks he can still catch trump in a three-way race with kasich and trump.  either way, he's not in great shape.

Trump will win FL, but Kasich is going to carry OH. Rubio will drop out after FL (and even if he doesn't, he's basically a nullity at that point). Kasich will cut a deal with Cruz to drop out after winning OH in exchange for VP. That's all Kasich is playing for at this point anyway. It's a win-win for Cruz and Kasich. Clears the field and makes for a formidable general election ticket. Cruz's firey conservatism to rally the base coupled with Kasich's ah shucks pragmatic rust belt governor schtick.

That leaves Trump in a two man race against Cruz, mired in the mid-30s, and well behind pace to reach enough delegates to secure the nomination. Which means Cruz heads to the convention with the most delegates (and in this scenario he still has an outside chance of securing enough delegates outright).

So yes, the way I see this playing out, Cruz and Rubio are right where they need to be tonight.
Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: sys on March 08, 2016, 11:57:11 PM
i'll believe in that scenario when i see it.  what i've seen so far is a complete inability of republicans to coalesce against trump and a complete inability of anyone to predict where voters will fall to when their preferred candidate drops out (hello there resurgent rubio bestride a throng of former bushites).

the simplest, and thus most likely, outcome of gifting trump florida's 100ish delegates is that trump rides them to 1237.

I really don't understand why Republicans refuse to get behind Trump. It seems they hate him more than Hillary. If I were a republican I'd go throw Ted Cruz in a swamp somewhere because Hillary will kick the ever loving crap out of him. There isn't a single independent or Reagan Democrat that is going to vote for Cruz, not a damn one. If by some freak accident Trump loses, would take his death at this point, the establishment will turn on Cruz too. He is benefiting now because he doesn't yell at women reporters and his supporters aren't beating people up. In a general when it is all about policy he will get housed.

Weird that he has such a shitty mower, if you have the money a mower is not something you'd go cheap on.

Weird that he mows in jeans.

Why wouldn't you mow in jeans?

mowing isn't exactly working out either. :lol:

back when I had to mow I always wore jeans because I don't like my legs getting dust and grass clippings on them. I prefer jeans for most activities that involve dust/dirt/grease.

I usually like to have a specific pair of shitty jeans that I use for times when I want pants to get dirty in (painting, mowing, etc.).  I'm sure I've mowed in shorts before, but I don't really like to.  I get a little freaked out about accidentally burning my shins on one of the hot parts of the mower.

I think it's only working for Trump because he was already a celebrity before he started running for office. When career politicians try it they go down like Little Marco.
Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: CNS on May 02, 2016, 03:37:00 PM
hopefully.  However, I think that Marco just isn't good at it.  None of the current politicians are.  That is why he is steamrolling.  No one prepped for the Yo Momma jokes.  They didn't realize it was in bounds. 

Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: sys on May 02, 2016, 03:46:25 PM
i think you are underestimating how good trump is at this.  it's not something that would work for many other people (but other people could probably do other things that wouldn't work for trump but that are currently dismissed as not standard operating politicianing).


what a sad end to #nevertrumpism, btw.  back in the day, when trump rallies included daily beatings and likeable young politicians like rubio seemed poised to pick up the pieces, it felt so promising.  and now we're here hoping the voters in the stupidest state of the union will vote for the least likeable politician in the world in order to stave off death for at least one more week.

Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: CNS on May 02, 2016, 03:53:03 PM
I certainly think Trump is good at it, but I also think that no other candidate this year has any experience in his game.  There are plenty of ppl who can argue in insults and stupidity just like Trump.  This election opens doors for them.  No longer do you have to be a robotic boring politician.  Now you can middle school yard bully your way though. 

Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: DQ12 on May 02, 2016, 04:00:41 PM
I think the pendulum will swing the other way if it gets too prevalent.  I think the only reason it's working for trump is because a. he's one of the best extemporaneous speakers I can recall, and b. nobody has really run a campaign like he has before.

basically, it's novel, and he's good at it.
Title: Re: ted cruz is a sociopath
Post by: sys on May 02, 2016, 04:03:43 PM
being novel is important.  i don't think he's winning because he's insulting, more likely in spite of it.

I would hope that the GOP would regroup and figure out who they are and what they want prior to the next ramp up for election.  Also, I would bet that priority #1 for the party(probably both parties now) is changing their process on what to do when a trump or bernie comes in and makes too much noise.

He's really setting the stage for his next election run in 4 years.

If hill wins in a landslide, it won't matter.  The party will have to change between now and then and I doubt they change to be further to the super sociopath crazy zealotry side of the spectrum, thus moving away from your guy Ted.  I mean, they are mostly there now and they have Trump.

It only appears that way now. After Clinton wins big and the democrats gain control of congress, Ted is going to look a whole lot better.

I just listened to most of Ted's speech.  I liked it and agree with the macro of most of what he was saying about freedom and liberty.  Its just too bad that his ilk want to pervert and distort that by trying to make it a freedom issue to discriminate and what not.  If the Pubs could stick to the freedom and liberty and stop rough ridin' it up with Jesus and other such nonsense, they would kill, imo.

Just now watching Beto/Cruz 2. Cruz is such a shitty human being. When asked about whether he has a responsibility to foster civility in politics he blamed the far left mobs. When asked whether inflammatory rhetoric was a problem, he said absolutely which is why the far left is a big problem and would destroy democracy if they impeached Trump.

Everything? Maybe not. But I'd put it at 97% or higher. And I think when people say "everything" or "everyone" we all know it's hyperbolic. Just how you say "all liberals" are a certain way, ya know?

I mean, homeboy didn't speak up with Trump called his wife a dog so I'd say that definitely points in the direction of "agreeing with everything".

Cruz in an interview with a KTRK, a Texas television station, accused Democrats of trying to tear him down for political reasons.

"No one should be surprised to see Democrats playing politics and to see them try to attack strong conservative leaders. That's something Democrats have done for a long time. I do think it's really cynical for them to be trying to take advantage of what was a tragic event," he said.

That's deep down in the rabbit hole

I think postponement would be prudent. oscar is going to have a hard time breaking the streak if he plays a TCU team that's been holed up for a week.

I actually think this is the kind of "cancun for me, not for thee" move that could actually cost him in the election.  As southerners, Texans are dumb as hell but he just dipped when it got cold, people are dying and then he lied his ever loving ass off to crap on Texans even more.

He just assumes they are the dumbest humans on the earth

yes, in texas you can.

unless this sticks in a pretty unlikely way, so that it becomes one of the like three things that people know about cruz like katrina/bush or bridgegate/christie, this is going to have no impact in 2024 elections.  people don't remember things for four weeks, much less four years.

They won't.

Most of rural Texas was unaffected by the power outages.

Yes, and it's important for you outsiders to remember that internal Texas politics is driven primarily not by the denizens of the major cities, but by the long tail of podunk towns. See, e.g., the State's posture towards cannabis in any form.

Why don’t you believe that he hopped on a plane, suitcases in tow, just to make sure they got down to Cancun ok, and then turned around to fly back the next morning.   Seems plausible.  It’s not like airplanes are uncomfortable.

This is the part that my brain will never comprehend. I can sort of see voting party lines all the time because you are too stupid to try and look in to anything. I can see voting party lines because you are stupid and continue to believe the evil liberals are going to take your guns. However, even stupid people shouldn't like to be made fun of or disrespected right to their faces. These dudes flat out call them morons at the rallies and tell them that they could shoot one of them and they will all still forge ahead without even considering any of that? It is just bizarre. Hell Cruz is the best example as Trump called his wife ugly and he still swings from his balls at every occasion.
