“Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”Men in Black 1997
“Now lets consider how fleeting conventional wisdom is: A few years ago the John Edwards case was just the National Enquirer digging phony dirt, a few months ago anyone who thought the IRS was targeting the Tea Party was crazy and at the beginning of the month the idea of delaying Obamacare was a terrorist act.
Two years after ‘Wisconsin’ suddenly the same people, who unlike the Tea Party, were not anxious to stand with Scott Walker because they were convinced he was over the line, courting disaster for the GOP, are now invoking to the US public in general and the viewers in particular, of that same Scott Walker, to judge Ted Cruz and the Tea Party as extremists.
Ted Cruz made a fight that the establishment shied away from. He took on a position for principle not popular with the media and public. He made that fight with lots of risks and little upside and pushed the media to the point where that media made absolutely sure that the entire country knew which party wanted to stop Obamacare and which party with one voice was dedicated to protecting Obamacare from repeal and or delay at all costs….
…right up until they weren’t.
If Ted Cruz had not made this fight, when the Obamacare launch came and the problems arose, the media would have talked about how natural such problems were and when Democrats asked to delay implementation it would be sold by the media as not a big deal, the most reasonable thing in the world…instead [they are] trying to explain why it’s necessary to delay a law passed by congress, signed by the president and upheld by the supreme court that they were united in defending as inviolate just two weeks ago, while comedians across the country laugh at it.
[non-RINO] Ted Cruz did this for you, even while you were trying to destroy him.
My exit question for Karl Rove & Company: How many millions of dollars from Big money donors would you have paid to put Democrats up for election in 2014 in such a spot?”
Funny, what a difference a year, a month, a week a day or a Congressional Hearing makes……Dumbplumber
