Well since that idea is ridiculous outside of far right wing crazy talk, I think it is a safe assumption to make.

You are assuming Ayatollah Obama doesn't issue a fatwa banning future elections...


That's the most ridiculous thing I've read all week.

That's just stupid. Ted Cruz is an alternative to Bush, Clinton, and Walker by a little. Rand Paul is probably a better choice of all of them. The goal is to defeat the Neocons.

Now it's pretty obvious that the Democrats are align with the Neocons since their media has been pretty good to them, after they use to bash them for political points. Now, They rather have a Neocon in charge to keep the 2 party monopoly going. They don't like outsiders and prefer to take turns running the country.

Yeah, well I would have once told you it was ridiculous that the federal government would one day force you to do business with private companies too.

Do I think he'd try it? No, but I'm lot less skeptical of the suggestion than I once would have been.

Obama wasn't solely responsible for that bill. Many other Democrats were on board with it as well. I think Obama would have a tough time getting Congressional support for suspending further elections even if he DID still have a super majority in Congress

No, it's the same strategy they had with McCain and then with Romney. They know no one wants a moderate Rep because moderate Rep is really just a Democrat lite. There is no contrast and they run around pandering to everyone without actually presenting anything substantial. They spend all their time trying to be liked.

So, the media makes nice with them and tries to convince people that the moderate is the only "electable" one. Then they get crucified as soon as the real election comes because the Progressive is the only one who actually stands for anything they really believe in. People do respond to that.

They'll do it again with Jeb if they can.

The GOP has no strategy as the party is split. The same reason the GOP has literaly done nothing in Congress is they are not longer one party. They are the traditional GOP and the far right tea party. Because the Tea Party can get their small but active follwers out to vote in local elections they have more power in the GOP than they should. However the Tea Party is not liked by the Center which means most of America is not going to vote for them. This puts the GOP into the problem of trying to get a candidate past the tea party who has a chance.

On top of that the GOP does not really have something to focus on. They do not want anybody comparing how things are now then how they were at the end of the last GOP President. They are going to pretend Bush Jr. never existed.

I would have thought that too, but he's basically suspended immigration policy and redefined what illegal status means no one has said anything about it.

So I am a lot less skeptical of the suggestion than I once was.

Yes, he has. Read the judge's opinion. Only congress has the legal power to define some of things Obama's executive phone and pen has redefined. The executive branch itself has said so on multiple occasions before they wrote their new EOs.

That was one judge in Texas. The Supreme Court overturns EO's not one judge in Texas.

Ted Cruz will make walker and bush seem sane in comparison...that's the goal


Hes a constitionalist, explain to me how he will make them seen "sane"

Whats so insane about Cruz?

Id really like some honest answers on this without all the distortion from the libs.....

This guy is disliked by both the progressives and the GOP (almost one in the same now days)

That to me says a lot about the man....maybe we need to be looking into him more....

Hes finished first in his class at both Harvard and Princeton.......

He was the number one debate guy in the US and top 3 in the world , so the notion that the guy isnt intelligent and cant convey his ideas properly is out the window.....

Downplay Cruz at your own parel but mark my words his campaign has legs and hes going to be a force to be reckoned with.....

The fact is the Dems and progressives want a Bush candidate.....they want Democrat lite......they know the establishment GOP will continue to do what theyve done for the past 8 years and will play ball with them....

People like Cruz, Walker and Rand, are variables in that mix that they really really dont want to have to contend with...so the Dems and GOP are going to go after them fast and hard...

Personally? I think it's a move by the GOP to throw a right wing extremest out front first, so that the rest of their candidates look moderate in comparison.

The problem for the GOP/Republicans is going to be capturing the moderates and people that aren't either Democrat or Republican. If they have Cruz running around getting media and taking flack for his extreme views, it'll make their other candidates look much more appealing.

IMO its a bit to early to be doing this, the same with Hillary's email scandal. The GOP is to trigger-happy, and most of these stunts will be forgotten about by the people they're hoping to influence come election day.

Cruz is in no way a contender. There are not enough people in this country who will swing to support his extreme stances.


He is a distraction nothing more.

Interesting to note that a candidate who wishes to adhere to the Constitution is considered as "fringe" by practically everyone.

Sad reflection on the country.


Adhere to the Constitution? He's against legalizing marijuana. Something the Constitution makes no mention of being able to make illegal. That alone loses my vote.


States are taking care of the regardless of the federal position.

The Constitution also makes no mention of internet porn, so I don't really see your point.

When was porn made illegal?

I don't like his views on how he thinks science works and it troubles me to think that he is in charge of policy that is directly influenced by scientific consensus.
