Obamacare is a disaster, but the leftists who supported it don’t seem to care about that. They’re singling out and pack attacking one of the Republicans who tried to save America from Obamacare. Take a look at this section of headlines from Memeorandum today.

cruz-memeorandum

 

David Corn leads the Emmanuel Goldstein-ing of Ted Cruz, but the hate is clearly coming straight from the Democratic Party leadership, as the second section shows. It’s not accidental. It’s a party strategy to single Cruz out and pour hate on him, make him radioactive and unelectable. Democrats successfully did the same thing to Sarah Palin, and will do the same to any genuine leader who emerges among the GOP. Why would Reid really care if a Cruz nomination hurts the GOP? As a partisan Democrat, isn’t that what he wants? He doesn’t care. It’s a strategy to destroy Cruz. If Reid really thought Ted Cruz would be bad for the GOP, he would shut up and hope that Cruz wins the nomination in 2016. Bob Beckel on The Five would do the same thing, but instead, he hates on Cruz for a least a few minutes of every show, every day.

Corn probably doesn’t care that attacking Cruz’s father legitimizes attacks on Barack Obama’s illegal-alien aunt and drunk-driving uncle. Maybe he just didn’t think that far ahead. I’ve seen him in action in person. The only impressive part of him is his unjustifiably vast ego.

Local Texas media show up in the Goldstein-ing campaign too: Trail Blazers Blog is the Dallas Morning News’ politics blog. It’s supposed to be unbiased, but it’s blazing a trail straight to the hard but conventional left. Ted Cruz is Joe McCarthy and Roy Cohn all rolled up in one, dontcha know.

This is how attacks will tend to flow across the media landscape for Ted Cruz. It won’t matter to the media — and I know, from having spoken with several Texas media recently — that he has been vindicated for fighting Obamacare and for not trusting the Obama administration on other issues such as immigration. It won’t matter. At all. Word will go out from the DNC or OfA that Cruz must be attacked, and so he will be attacked. And many media will attack him without needing orders. It’s just what they do. There won’t be a memo, just a sense passed along the grapevine or the current iteration of JournoList.

That the Democrats are attacking Cruz for the same racist reason that they blocked Miguel Estrada from the courts — because he is Hispanic, and therefore a threat to capture a demographic Democrats covet — will not even be addressed in the media.

More: They’re so predictable.

Reid's right. A Cruz nomination would destroy the gop as he knows it and loves it. It will no longer be a party of jelly-spined losers he can roll over at will.
You ask why Reid would declare Cruz the ruination of the gop? Easy. It's his thinly veiled warning shot across the bow of the republican establishment yacht. "Hey guys, don't let Cruz win your nomination, or you're off the inside-the-beltway A-list!" McConnell and McCain will pee their pants - if they haven't already.

Hmm, the Dems hate him? Where do I sign up to vote for him? If they are going to all this much trouble he must be even better than I thought!

It's obvious Cruz has the Dems scared to death, and justifiably so.

And Reid is correct that a Cruz nomination would destroy the GOP....the Establishment Republicans, anyway. Cruz is exactly the kind of guy they DON'T want in Washington, and that is the best reason in the World to nominate, and elect, him.

The Republican Party has RINO-Virus. The Tea Party pledges to eradicate this fatal, debilitating illness next election. "When we the Tea Party Movement send the RINO's home we will send more cowardly Liberal Democrats Packing. We Promise!"

All you fans of Cruz, PLEASE drop him an email of appreciation on the tough days. It can be lonely when you are trying to slay the dragon, with YOUR OWN PARTY attacking your effort. www.cruz.senate.gov/contact.cfm

Thanks!

A friend of mine said he 'sounded so rational' but then I remembered he's from Texas (she pointed out some obscure law indicating he must be crazy to be from Texas, 'cause they're all crazy).

It's already a fact on the left that he's evil.

Democrat hatred - just one more reason to like Cruz.

MSNBC has obviously received their marching orders - destroy Ted Cruz at all cost.
Chris Matthews compared Cruz to Freddy Kruger on Tuesday.
Al Sharpton and Melissa Harris Perry took turns demonizing Cruz last week on Politics Nation.
But as other have pointed out, Cruz's worst enemy is the old guard Republicans who want to sit on their asses and keep their jobs.

How can you tell when McCain and McConnell are peeing their pants? First they squat.

Democrats always tell us who they're scared of, and Cruz is the more frightening than Palin -- he knows how to talk past the biased media and too the people. And what he says, it what he believes.
