5 Reasons Ted Cruz Deserves Our Respect (Tom Rogan)

5 Reasons Ted Cruz Deserves Our Respect – Tom Rogan

.

To start, something we can all agree on – Ted Cruz tends to evoke passionate emotions.

The left hates him because, well, he’s a human textbook in the art of annoying liberals. The right is more divided. Some conservatives dislike Cruz because they view him as an agitator for agitation’s sake.

Some conservatives dislike him because, well, they aren’t him. But for many conservatives, Cruz is the ultimate politician; a conservative gunslinger – no excuses, no prisoners, no retreat – quite literally, the Lone Star State Ranger.

Yet, regardless of how we as individuals feel about Cruz’s politics, for five reasons, he deserves our respect.

1) He’s intelligent

As his liberal Harvard Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz, put it, “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant.”

While the Senator often takes flak for his statements in Congress, at speeches off the Hill, he tends to strike a slightly different figure. Passionate yes, but able to articulate the intricacies of his positions to a mix of audiences. If nothing else, we should celebrate the fact that a man who rose from humble beginnings is now at the intellectual forefront of shaping his party’s future.

2) He puts causes above political gain

Soaring speeches, relentless campaigning, marathon filibusters… No one can accuse Cruz of being a political crony. Let’s face it; he doesn’t seem desperate to win powerful friends. In fact, he’s reveled in torching bridges as much as building them.

Cruz’s relentless passion speaks to something. We might disagree with some (or all) of his opinions, –but we should respect Cruz’s commitment. By the authority of Texas voters, Cruz has been sent to Washington for a reason. He’s fulfilling it. Though he’s controversial at home as well as in DC, so far, the defining judges of Cruz’s ‘service’, Texan voters, remain more favorable in their opinion of him than they are negative. Of course, this may change, but until it does, Cruz can point to a continuing base of popular legitimacy. We should respect that.

3) He’s amusing

No one can accuse the Senator of being boring. His speeches are loaded with humor. And impressively for a politician, Cruz’s jokes include references to both modern social trends and cultural Americana. This isn’t silly, it’s crucially important. Regrettably, many Americans are far more interested in the Kardashians than they are in their own government. That’s not healthy for our democracy.

Yet, Cruz is helping to change this dynamic – he’s making politics more accessible and more engaging. When he sends syrup to Jon Stewart, he’s connecting with young Americans. When he compares ObamaCare to Dr. Seuss, he’s introducing levity to a DC dominated debate. Certainly, he’s differentiating himself from the callous, mindless oratory of Republicans like Todd Akin or Richard Mourdock.

4) He’s a political turbine

When it comes to Ted Cruz, you never know what you’re going to get. That makes his politics interesting. In turn, Cruz drags people out of disinterest and into the discussion. These days, Cruz is probably better at stirring up the liberal base than the president. For the well-being of our country, this catalytic quality is priceless. The main problem with contemporary American politics isn’t Cruz style intransigence. Instead, it’s the fact that many Americans ignore politics in general. They care enough to complain, but not enough to demand change. Cruz changes that equation. He’s a grenade against apathy.

5) He’s done nothing wrong

Listening to some commentators, you’d think that Cruz is an American Guy Fawkes. He isn’t. Rather, the senator is doing what most ambitious politician do – he’s applying the system to his own advantage.

It’s true, few of his actions could be regarded as bi-partisan in nature. But political service is about more than deference to common authority (as President Obama recently found out with his Syria authorization request in Congress). In the end, Cruz will be considered just as much for what he has prevented, as for what he has established. His is undoubtedly a risky proposition – 2016 Republican primary voters may come to regard Cruz harshly if the GOP loses key seats in the 2014 midterm elections. But Cruz’s record shouldn’t be written for a few more years.

Ultimately, the people of Texas will decide whether or not he deserves a second term. The American people will decide whether he gets the keys to another house.

In our system of government, Ted Cruz owes deference to two things alone – his oath and his office. Yes, many of us would prefer a more consensus oriented politician. Nevertheless, he’s an elected representative of America’s second most populous state. We don’t have to like him, we don’t have to vote for him, but paying heed to his pivotal role in our national political life, Ted Cruz deserves our respect.

5 Reasons Barack Obama Is A Creep (John Hawkins)

5 Reasons Barack Obama Is A Creep – John Hawkins

Is Barack Obama the Vladimir Lenin of American Presidents? No, Lenin was competent in an evil sort of way. Obama is more like Leonid Brezhnev: an ultra left-wing, belligerent doofus who isn’t laughed at by the general population primarily because the mainstream media liberals say nice things about him out of fear that they’ll end up in a gulag if they’re too harsh. Of course, we don’t have gulags, but reporters who criticize Obama would be snubbed by their peers at cocktail parties in Manhattan and Old Town, which seems almost as bad to liberals. This is how a narcissist who scores at “Nixon after Watergate” on the presidential likability scale can be perceived by much of the public as a long suffering, bipartisan nice guy. The real picture is less Van Gogh and is more Andy Warhol, if Andy Warhol were a five year old coloring with cow dung crayons.

1) Obama NEVER stops campaigning: Barack Obama almost seems disinterested in actually governing the country. Apparently the only thing he does passably well is campaign; so he has just decided to do that. His agenda, from Obamacare, to free birth control, to amnesty for illegals has nothing to do with the country’s immediate problems and everything to do with politics. This is a big part of the reason that Washington has become even more nonfunctional than usual under Obama – because he ALWAYS acts as if there’s an election next week and winning it by trying to make the GOP look bad is his first priority.

2) What he says is completely unrelated to what he does: Barack Obama is like an alcoholic who pledges to quit drinking and then gets hammered every night. Afterwards, his doting family full of enablers (played by the part of the mainstream media) pats him on the back and talks about what a great example he is for other people because he pledged to quit drinking. This is how Barack Obama can demand a sequester and then turn around and run against it or yammer on incessantly about transparency while he stonewalls on Fast and Furious. We’re talking about a man who’s worth nearly 10 million dollars, who has campaign events with celebrities and millionaires on a regular basis, and who just seems to squeeze in a little bit of work in between lavish vacations and golf outings with Tiger Woods; yet he spent most of last year campaigning against rich people. This is almost like listening to Bill Maher complain about loud mouth know-nothings who regularly say incredibly stupid things just for shock value.

3) He works overtime to pit Americans against each other: Barack Obama’s entire campaign strategy – and don’t forget, he’s always campaigning – is based on convincing different groups of Americans to hate each other. He tries to convince black and Hispanic Americans that Republicans hate them for their skin color, gays that Republicans hate them for their sexuality, women that the GOP is pro-rape, poor people that the rich are taking all their money, people who’ve had children killed that gun owners are in favor of their children dying – it just goes on and on. There have been campaigns of genocide across the world that have featured less vitriolic rhetoric against the people who were murdered than Barack Obama and Company have engaged in since he became President. Then they turn around and wonder why Republicans in Congress have trouble working with them. Go figure.

4) His hypocrisy on bipartisanship never ends: Politics is a brass-knuckled street fight in a phone booth and if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog or alternately, if you’re Robert Menendez, you hire an underage Dominican prostitute. What’s so frustrating about Barack Obama is that he’s as much of a diehard partisan as Rachel Maddow or Chris Matthews, but he never stops yapping about the importance of bipartisanship. This is a man who has done everything short of screaming, “Screw you, Republicans,” over and over at the State of the Union and yet he keeps claiming other people put “party before country.” It would be nice if he ever put his country before his party. Once. Ever. In his entire presidency. But, we’re still waiting.

5) He’s such a liar: Calling a politician a liar is a little bit like calling the Occupy Movement lazy and violent. It just sort of goes with the territory. But, even in a profession known for lying, Obama is the “lyingest” liar ever to spew lies out of his lie hole because he is allowed to get away with it. Obama’s coverage by the press is like that movie, The Invention Of Lying, where the main character is the first person on the planet to ever figure out how to lie and everyone simply takes whatever he says at face value. In this case, the part of “everyone” is played by the mainstream media which starts with the uncritical assumption that Obama is always right, good, and truthful, while the people who disagree with him are mean, partisan liars. Obama could sacrifice a child to Satan at a press conference tomorrow, get ripped for it by Republicans, and the headlines would read, “Republicans Accuse The President Of Child Murder. Have They No Shame?” Afterwards, Obama would blame the child sacrifice on Bush and we’d have weeks of “Republicans and Satan team up to wage war on children” stories in the media.

5 Reasons Why The Daley Gator Should Be Your Conservative Blog Of Choice In 2013


1.) The Daley Gator is run by two genuinely conservative (aka God-fearing, gun-owning, anti-abortion, leftist-hating, oil-loving, RINO-bashing, Tea Party-supporting, Obama-mocking, Constitution-respecting, America-defending, law-abiding, border-securing, fiscally responsible) men… of mostly Irish heritage.

2.) The Daley Gator is way cool! Doug and I post the most interesting news and opinion articles, videos, and hot chick pictorials that you’re likely to find anywhere on the net, and the only times we find ourselves lacking in these respects is when we’re either too drunk, hungover, crestfallen or pissed off to bother… and that’s not very often.

3.) We’re classy sons o’ bitches! Hell, we OOZE class. In fact, The Daley Gator is so chock full o’ class that once you’ve left this site, the class that’s rubbed off on you’re clothes will linger long after you’ve washed them… and in rare cases, our classiness has been known to clean a viewer’s apparel all by itself. True story.

4.) The Daley Gator exists for the sole purpose of helping conservative Americans (see definition above) take back their country from the vile, pernicious, immoral, military-hating, putrid, tax-and-spend, treasonous, violent, corrupt, gun-grabbing, parasitic, baby-killing, self-loathing, hypocritical, racist, moronic, evil leftists among us. If that’s not a noble endeavor, then I don’t know what the word noble means.

5.) Doug and I are too damned old to give half a shit about offending people anymore… and to tell you the truth, I don’t think either one of us ever worried much about being offensive to society at large when we were young. For the most part, society can bend over and kiss my royal, Irish ass! I, like my good friend Doug, am all about individuality, and if you’ve got a problem with that concept, I suggest you turn your sorry self around and get the fuck outa here!

In conclusion, The Daley Gator is a really good news-and-information blog, and it was one before I – Edward L. Daley – came on board more than two years ago. It’s a good blog because the folks behind it are good Americans who know the difference between right and wrong, between good and evil, and who possess more than their fair share of intelligence, education, morality and wisdom.

Join us in this new year as we strive to reclaim our common birthright for ourselves and our progeny.

And may God bless us, everyone.
