'Top' DC Republicans Sent Oppo Research to 'Hammer' Cruz
www.breitbart.com...



On Sunday, Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, said that Republicans in Washington were savaging Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) behind Cruz's back before Cruz's appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare.

In an appearance on Washington D.C.'s Fox 5 to preview his Sunday show, Wallace said, "I will tell you I have never in my time in Washington seen a party so upset with one of its own members."

He said he had been flooded with opposition research on Cruz--from Republicans. Later on Fox News Sunday, Wallace said these "top Republicans" gave him "unsolicited research and questions" to "hammer" Cruz.

"Since we announced that Ted Cruz was going to be on the show, I've been getting background research and questions going after Cruz not from Democrats but from other Republicans," Wallace said on Fox 5. "They really feel he has put them in this corner that they can't get out of gracefully and they're not very happy with him."

In an exclusive op-ed for Breitbart News on Saturday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has also been savaged by establishment Republicans


"top Republicans" gave him "unsolicited research and questions" to "hammer" Cruz.

I don't understand, but I am not surprised,

Someone want to enlighten me?

On Sunday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called on Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to release the names of the "top Republicans" that sent him opposition research on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to "hammer" Cruz before his appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare.

"Keep it TRULY fair & balanced," Palin tweeted. "Release the GOP names encouraging you to trash @SenTedCruz. No more anonymous sources."


God I would love to know.

We here at ATS have often said many times that the Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin.

I think Cruz (along with others both D and R) are rocking the establishment a bit. In my opinion, not enough though.

We all can see that unless you have a D or R after your name when running for office, chances are you will not receive much funding from others and thus will not get elected.

From what I have seen in the news, both sides of the aisle are having problems within the ranks. They're both just testing the waters prepping for the 2016 election in my opinion.

No doubt about that.

It is infuriating.

Amanda Carpenter @amandacarpenter

Lots of furor bc Ted Cruz exposed the plan to let GOP vote for cloture and then allow Dems add Obamacare funding back in with 51 votes.
9:52 AM - 22 Sep 2013

I found this, but I want names and I bet they leak them eventually.

Cruz announces plan B for defunding Obamacare: ‘Shut down the military’

www.rawstory.com...



Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Sunday warned Senate Republicans that refusing to filibuster a bill that defunds President Barack Obama’s health care reform law “is a vote for Obamacare,” and he also advised House Republicans to “shut down the military” if they had to.

She is a tough little stinker no matter what you think of her, she is bold and fearless.

These people are dangerous IMHO

Nothing like members of your own party stabbing you in the back.
The backstabbing going on between the tea party and the old school Republicans would make great reality show.

EXCLUSIVE: Palin -- Bombs Away on Obamacare; Cruz Is over the Target
www.breitbart.com...



Those of us who hang in there supporting a major political party with our energy, time, and contributions would like to believe that that party would praise principled conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for following through on campaign promises. We’d like to believe that the GOP establishment would applaud the way these bold leaders have rallied the grassroots to their cause. But, no, such praise would require a commensurate level of guts and leadership, and the permanent political class in D.C. is nothing if not gutless and rudderless.

We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game. The Capitol Hill cowards are rushing to anonymously denounce Senator Cruz to any reporter with a pad and pen.

Welcome to our world, Ted. The same people have been denouncing conservatives like me for years (right after they ask for help fundraising for themselves or endorsing the latest candidate they’ve suckered into paying their exorbitant consulting fees). We can compare shiv marks next time we meet, my friend.


gutless and rudderless.
yup

There is a lot of backstabbing going on in the DNC as well now that Obama is pretty much a lame duck. I've seen Pelosi and Reid complaining about their own members for not unilaterally backing every Democratic bill put forth.

It's always a Soap Opera in DC, but I think we've entered the "Who shot JR?" phase of things. It's only going to get funnier...and worse.

Sure there is a lot of backstabbing in the DNC. But there isn't two parties claiming to be Democrat like there is with the Republicans.

How's that saying go? A little revolution is good....

I'm a liberally conservative kinda guy. Both parties lost me a long time ago. I joined then left the Tea Party when it was corrupted, the same with OWS. I still consider myself a Tea Partyer, but no longer affiliated with the mainstream bought out one.

The thing I see the DNC as having is that it is affiliated with Progressives, Liberals and Socialist and many look at them as one and the same. So it is a quieter revolution within the ranks by MSM standards. But it is still happening.

MY hope is vote all the bums out and term limits..

I think the major problem is career politicians or at least it is right up there on the list, and some of them seem to be totally out of touch with reality.

I would say that would be number one on the list.

But until we manage to get rid of the lobbyists, the song will remain the same. It's expensive to run for office, even in a small town.

Get rid of corporate lobbyists & donations, PACs, put a limit on ALL personal donations and make those running pay the majority out of their own pocket and you will see more honest people coming forth. After all, if their is no money to be made in running for office, it's not worth the hassle.

Has no one hazarded a guess who these "top" republicans were? I'll have a go for a couple of them:

John McCain
Lindsey Graham

Just guessing of course.

In that case you will only get representatives from the ultra-wealthy backgrounds who can afford to buy the election personally. This is a poor way to filter candidates, and the representatives would have narrow backgrounds and interests often opposed to the general population.

A Constitutional Amendment to overturn the "corporations have free anonymous political speech rights" like natural humans might help.

The truth is that the occupy movement, the tea party and many of us at ATS are essentially interested in the same thing, the deprecation and eventual elimination of official power and officials. Having removed that legislative power, monopolistic corporations cannot continue to prevent their competitors from advancing their products and services.

It is time to recognize that we are ALL Americans and it is time to show it at the grassroots level. Ultimately, having proceeded down the admittedly arduous path that I am describing, we will arrive at the chambers of corrupt power with pink slips in hand and our salvation at our fingertips.

I believe that saving our country will require all of us to work independently. I do not believe that we need to unite in any official capacity, we are already as united as we need to be. Some of us are simply missing the impetus to act individually toward our shared goal.
