Wolf Blitzer to Ted Cruz: You can’t be overly idealistic, you have to compromise because Obama won

I love that Ted Cruz just puts himself on the record as opposing this fiscal cliff deal, even saying that he would have voted against it. He doesn’t hedge or dodge. He explains that what we need is economic growth and this tax-raising bill does the opposite in killing jobs, hurting small business and hurting Americans.

But Wolf Blitzer pushes Cruz over and over on this, suggesting that he should compromise and be concessionary because Obama got reelected as did Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate. In fact he told Cruz that he can’t be overly idealistic and that he needs to embrace this reality. Argh! I was yelling at my TV at this point.

Watch below:

Another bonus clip from this interview where Cruz discusses immigration:

      The reply to Blitzer should have been a resounding BULL$h!+!!!

  • poljunkie

    YES Wolf. we should all bow down to 0.

    Uh, no thanks.

    I didnt hear the same words when Pres Bush was re-elected. I saw Democrats protesting with “Bush as Hitler” signs.

    • sjmom

      Without seeing your post I wrote almost the same thing. Great minds think alike. 🙂

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Hey, Wolf. Name ONE THING the Democraps compromised on over the last 10 years. I mean, truly compromised on. I mean on something that they didn’t agree with the Republicants on. Hurry. One thing. C’mon let’s go. Hurry. Oh wait, what? There isn’t even one thing? Hmmmmm. Interesting.

  • LadyMacKeltar

    I like what I heard, Senator Cruz. Keep it up and don’t let Washington change you. Godspeed!

      • PVG

        You got that right!

  • aposematic

    I love the Cruz talk; but can or will he walk the talk. I certainly hope so but too soon to get all jazzed up. We have made horrendous misjudgements in the past by jumping too quick.

    • marketcomp

      I am confident that he will aposematic. Look, Ted Cruz was a Solicitor General for Texas and he led the fight in the Supreme Court arguing the 2nd Amendment and the team led by him won that case 5-4. So right now with Diane Feinstein prowling and trying to take away everyone gun there really isn’t a better defender of the 2nd Amendment.

      • Orangeone

        I wonder if Ted is hiding a little Trey Gowdy behind that cute smile 🙂

        • marketcomp

          I think you maybe on to something there, Orangeone!

    • I understand. But I can tell you that I am hopeful as a native Texan. He got a lot of grass-root, tea party support and in the primary ran against the RINO GOP Lt. Governor David “Dewdrop” who had a lot of incumbent support and monies. Cruz is a REALLY good debater. He can keep his cool and totally wiped the floor with Dewhurst (the democrat opponent was not a real obstacle). He seems totally genuine. As you said, we’ll have to see, but I’m feeling good about Cruz.

  • PhillyCon

    Funny, I don’t remember any of these MSM types telling Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi they have to compromise with Bush b/c he won.

              Take a look at Tim Huelskamp Rep. from Kansas. HE voted against Bray-ner for Speaker. I just wish there were 432 more elected congress-people like Michele, Tim, and Ted. Unfortunately we’re stuck with scum like Oblahma, Reid, Pelosi, Geitner, and that horrible skank Feinstein.

              • Conniption Fitz

                Geithner is out as of January. Look for an even more radical left Treasury Secretary.

          • Yeah and she also cast the deciding vote for Cryin John for Speaker. What a disappointment she was.

            • Orangeone

              Her’s was not the deciding vote.

    • mike morrison

      This is what CNN and MSNBC do every new conservative that’s sworn in…do an interview immediately and get them to be as far to the right as they can on tape, then use it against them in the future.

  • sjmom

    Ted Cruz is very well spoken and in a very nice way told Wolf to take a hike. Did Wolf tell the Democrats they had to work with Bush??????????????

    • marketcomp

      NO he did not tell the Dems to work with Bush. Wolf is barking up the wrong tree this time. If Wolf thinks that Sen. Cruz is overly idealistic what in the hell does he think Obama’s Marxist ideology is? Hopefully optimistic?! What a fool Wolf Blizter is!

  • 911Infidel

    Wolf Pup Scmitzer. True to his name…what a drone. Keep drinking that Kool-Aid Wolfy. One of these days you’re going to choke on it.

  • Nukeman60

    There was a tight deadline here.‘ – Gabbard

    Yeah. They made it a tight deadline. They had 7 months to work out a deal and if they just made the Bush tax cuts permanent (a simple solution that changed nothing), then for this instance, peoples’ taxes wouldn’t go up. Of course, no one is talking about the fact that everybody’s taxes are still going up, but hey, what the heck. It doesn’t fit the agenda.

    At any rate it wasn’t Ted Cruz potentially voting against a lousy deal that would screw the middle class. It was a President who has an agenda, as usual.

    • Orangeone

      One thing that was not mentioned in the fiscal cliff bill that was good is a permanent fix to Alternative Minimum Tax. That can has been kicked down the road for a very, very long time

    • YotehunterKS

      Actually they had 3 years and 7 months to figure this out. There is still a way out….Natural Gas. But oh no, can’t use something that’s not “green” to create jobs, growth, national security, prosperity. The US also has a lot of oil, but can’t touch it, instead we gave Hollywood 350million dollars as part of the fiscal cliff deal. Not to mention the theatrics of O-dumbass flying back from his latest of vacations and then flying back to Hawaii at the cost of over 7 million tax dollars. I’m curious how much money him and the first scazz have cost us over the last 4 years.

  • The greatest danger to the American economy, national security, and the future hopes of our children…is the current incompetent, irresponsible, and outright damaging actions of our own federal government.

    from the Declaration of Independence, United States of America…

    …When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –“THAT WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT, AND TO INSTITUTION A NEW GOVERNMENT, LAYING ITS FOUNDATION ON SUCH PRINCIPLES AND ORGANIZATION POWER IN SUCH FORM, AS TO THEM SHALL SEEM MOST LIKELY TO EFFECT THEIR SAFETY AND HAPPINESS.” Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…

  • bjohnson55

    I would just be repeating the main theme of most of the people on this chats comments are, Senator Cruz should fire back at Wolfie “Did you say the same thing to Pelosi or Reid when Bush won?” One answer to that question HELL NO YOU DIDN’T. Transparent one sided slanted so call journalist Wolfie Blitskrieg. SOB

    • Orangeone

      Cruz did very, very well. He was polite, respectful, didn’t talk over the talking heads.

      • Yes, their talking over him to confuse him or the issue is very apparent.

      • bjohnson55

        Polite and respectful are good qualities for a civil discourse but there comes a time when the gloves have to come off. The public tunes out after about the 10th word and it is time to use those 10 words to the most effect by hitting these fools right between the eyes immediately before the masses fall back into their free Obama money induced slumber.

  • Get up from your puny knees Wolf —

  • BikerHoop

    Good thing for Blitzkrieg that the interview didn’t go on for much longer or Cruz would have made him look like the steaming pant-full that he is.

    • Orangeone

      Yes he did in the great state of TX! I loved him the first time I saw him speak. Me hopes there is a little Trey Gowdy style in that prosecutor named Cruz 🙂

  • Sober_Thinking

    Wolf… was he named “wolf” because he wants to devour America with the rest of the pack that he runs with? Moron, imbecile, idiot… there aren’t words enough for this contemptable piece of you-know-what.

    So this is how the media is going to play it? Piers Morgan, Wolf Blitzer (what a stupid name) and the rest of these puppets are going to beat up on conservatives on their pathetic little shows? That’s the plan? The bully pulpit?

    For God’s and America’s sake… to all you congressmen and congresswomen… people of power and position… please, PLEASE! Steal their power! Cause a blackout – boycott their damn raggedy shows. DON’T GO ON THEM!!! Not because I don’t think you can handle their insane mewling… but because you deprive them of their power. Let them rail against empty air. Think about it… Obama never goes on FNC or any unfavorable, slobbering news entity unless he’s sure he’ll get a free pass. And it sure works well for him don’t it? Follow suit. BOYCOTT CNN and MSNBC in particular… but also skip the other rag networks of the lamestream media. Trust me… just IGNORE them!

    And if the lemming zombies who are their audience wants to hear your side of the story in a professional, unbiased, truthful and unpackaged manner… then woo them over to the light side where they have a chance to hear honesty, honor and common sense for a change. Once they have the cream of truth, they’ll NEVER go back to expired skim milk again. And then, they might have a chance to crawl out of the slime and wash themselves off and think again with a clear mind. They may actually see how badly they have been abused and they may fully become disconnected from the Matrix.

    Just please, stop going on those phoney, lying swill hole shows. Screw them!

    • Orangeone

      I posted this in reply to someone else too but bears repeating. Ted Cruz can be a very valuable role model to young hispanic voters. They need to see that being hispanic doesn’t equate to the democrat plantation. If he gets that message across on the lib talk shows, all the better.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I agree with you to a point. He does seem to be a role model – especially to the Hispanic community.

        I have often been conflicted about having our conservative or Tea Party stars out there on the enemy’s networks. On one hand, they get seen by an audience that may never see them or hear them “in person” and they may reach someone they might not otherwise reach. On the other hand, they often get unnecessarily beaten up and ridiculed. It’s good practice for elections maybe, but not very persuasive as they’re fending for their lives.

        Then I started thinking about Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, Rush, Michelle Malkin and even to a certain extent Glenn Beck. All these brilliant minds – paragons of sanity and conservatism… and you’ll never see them on those pathetic time-wasting shows. Never.

        Furthermore, fraud aside, it didn’t work well enough this last voting cycle… not enough of those on the plantation or the ignorant lemmings were swayed by these appearances of other conservatives or Republican candidates. And why make CNN or MSNBC more credible by having someone of virtue go on there and get roughed up?

        I’m proposing a two-fold strategy because we HAVE to change tactics – what we’ve been doing isn’t working… at least not fast enough or in the numbers it needs to. So, 1) Boycott those rag stations… they don’t deserve our best people. Help to drain them dry and close their doors. Bring their pathetic ratings down even farther. Don’t feed the beast. And 2) Cluster our solid people on more conservative networks. Become the water where the donkeys will have to go to get a drink of fresh water. Not the opposite: You can bring water to a donkey but you can’t make him drink. Make them leave their “safe”, slanted, crappy networks to seek out another point of view – to find the truth so they’ll realize they weren’t getting it where they were before. If you fish in a certain pond and always come up empty, move on to a different, better pond.

        And if they don’t come… fine. Let them fall by the wayside while we push on and save those who we can save… those who want to live. It’s cold… but we can no longer be gracious or generous to our enemy. Put up a demilitarized zone for now and don’t cross over to their dark side. That will help to starve them out. And help us to win.

        Lord willing.

    • 1endtimes2020

      You really are on to something big. Imagine if all the caring people disconnected their cables and stopped buying video games and going to movies. Even stopped buying newspapers. It wouldn’t take more than two months for the whole gang of them to ‘compromise’ and comply to our demands, to represent conservatives also. We pay for the channel, and CNN disrespects us. And they think they’re ‘tolerant’.
      Let’s set a date. Usually we need to give 30 days notice to disconnect the TV cable charges. How about April 1st—April Fool’s day. How about it. Let’s spread the word.
      Let’s hear from all of you and back up sober-_thinking. Sober_thinking, do you agree with the idea?

      • Conniption Fitz

        No cable since 2002. Hated the constant stream of leftist propaganda and disgusting sexual content.

        • Sober_Thinking

          You rock.

      • Sober_Thinking

        See how it works? I like how you took an idea and expanded it further. 🙂

        What you propose will be difficult for some people to do – especially if they have bundles with phone/Internet/cable in order to get a discount. But the spirit of what you propose is spot on.

        If we could specifically target the “bad” sources, then I’d be all over this. For instance, it’s easy enough to drop your liberal newspaper (The Atlanta Constitution in my case). Seeing only certain movies or not supporting the industry at all is a little harder but still viable for many. Personally, I’m avoiding movies from certain directors (screw Michael Moore) or with certain actors who are insane (Sean Penn, Matt Damon, Jamie Foxx, etc.) but I will support movies like 2016, Courageous, etc.

        I agree that civil disobediance should play a role in this. Glenn Beck has talked a lot about this – though he was against boycotting businesses. However, known businesses that support the enemy (Progressive Insurance, Heinz, Google, GM, GE, etc.) will never get my business again. So, I don’t really see eye-to-eye with Glenn on that.

        Regardless, I think the practice of “not playing their game” has merit. I’m just not sure how we should go about that. Furthermore… it would take a huge amount of people to make a dent or a statement. For instance… someone once proposed that we all not buy gas on a certain day and that would cause the gas prices to come down. However, I don’t think enough people did that on the designated day to make a difference.

        But like Conniption Fitz… cutting your cable service and other services would be one way to go.

        We’ll have to think this through. Good idea. Now, how to implement it?

        • 1endtimes2020

          We may not have time to decide how to implement. In his book “A Nation Forsaken”, Michael Maloof. a former Defense Department expert, writes how an EMP attack (Electro Magnetic Pulse) can knock out all computers, TV, anything that requires electrical power. You can see his explanation that just was aired on George Noory’s radio program ‘Coasttocoast’. see http://www.coasttocoastam.com/ and scroll down to the left side and find the article about the EMP threat. (January 3rd, 2013)
          We think because we use technology, and can take risks such as going to the moon, or sending a craft to Mars, that we are so intelligent. Yet, we know how these things can make us find security in ourselves, rather than in God, our Creator. We fail to recognize how all that we discover comes from God. We fail to see how technology becomes part of the struggle we have between good and evil. Look how much evil is on TV, movies, etc..as we marginalize sin, pretending sin no longer exists.What comes from God, can be taken away by God.
          God sent Jesus to take on all our sins, so those who would believe it could have eternal life, and by striving to obey His commandments, and failing so often, and being sorry for it after, could not only have eternal life, but also have the gift of becoming sons and daughters of the Father, sharing in His universe. Yet, knowing there can be no sin in Heaven, and it took ‘a God'(Jesus) to be worthy to take away our sins, because we are not worthy enough to do that, we continue to try to justify lifestyles that are offensive to God. (50 million abortions, sodomy, mocking marriage, pornography, even using children, adult videos, etc) and then we say “God Bless America”. Yeah, sure.
          China is working, or already has a delivery system to knock out our electricity. Perhaps we do also, since EMP is not a complicated technology, and we can even buy kits to do this in small areas.( a terrorists’ dream)
          The Book of Revelation says there will be a day when the sun stops giving its light, the moon will darken and the ‘stars of heaven will fall on the earth, which means it will rain meteors from space.
          So, if we received a discount to bundle our tv, cable and phone, we should ‘think about it’, how to implement a message to those providers? Even just for two or three months? You’d be surprised how much more time you’d have for yourself, as you taste more freedom. Imagine the impact of reaction from provider as they wonder why so many are cancelling their TV. Their idea of bundling so that people would have to select channels they want, while paying for channels they don’t want, has been working. Therefore, the question ‘how to implement’, or, in other words, ‘how can we have our cake and eat it too, and be pleasing to God’?
          We know we can’t count on politicians from any party, and how a One World government and New World order is in the works for us. Meaning, Communism.
          God gave us freedom to choose. If communism takes over, we may not even have that, anymore.

          • Sober_Thinking

            I agree with pretty much everything you wrote… especially about salvation and the EMP danger we face.

            Thanks for you thoughtful response. I appreciate it.

    • YotehunterKS

      Fortunately it was on CNN so only maybe 24 people in the country saw it. Their ratings are horrible because of the talking heads spewing their filth to mindless cool-aid drinkers that always vote Dem. not matter who’s running…they elected and re-elected one of their own…a mindless talking head/teleprompter reading phony.

    Boehner offered Obama the same amount of revenue without raising the upper tax rates, and would have preserved the current tax rates for all Americans. Obama turned him down because Obama doesn’t care about revenue – he wants to punish the “rich” (successful) Americans.

    Obama is the one saying “my way or the highway”. He has already announced that HE WILL NOT NEGOTIATE over the debt ceiling. What do you call that? Bipartisanship? Not hardly… Obama doesn’t know the meaning of that word!

      • Orangeone

  • We shouldn’t compromise if it makes the situation worse. I hope Cruz goes to DC and raises hell the entire time he is there. Too many get to DC and immediately get corrupted. I hope he doesn’t. And Blitzer and CNN are oblahmah backers any way. They don’t care how much he hurts the country, they are squarely in his corner. All the evil little minions stick together.

  • Wolf Blitzer and the liberals throughout America have a grievous misconception of the place that Obama occupies. Mr. Blitzer told Senator Cruz that he has to compromise because Obama was re-elected. The misconception is that one group of people (those who voted to keep Obama in office) is more important that another group of people (those who voted to replace Obama with another candidate of their choice.) To Blitzer, the minority is inconsequential. Obama was not issued a “mandate” per se, but should have smelled the coffee by the narrow margin of his victory and the number of GOP nominees for the houses of Congress who were elected. These folks were elected by a majority in their districts and feel they are every bit as important as those who re-elected Obama. Our system of “checks and balances” were not emplaced for show. It exists to prevent – or reverse – what has in fact been happening here of late. Obama has used his executive pen and scathing words to issue executive orders and executive dressing-down of our congressmen and women. To be sure, he is not their parent, nor is he their boss! His position is merely as the coordinator for the government through which the administration of the government is to operate per the rules, regulations and law set down by Congress. It would be very easy for a house of Congress to strip away any authority the president may believe he possesses and place him in the corner to think about his misconduct. Mr. Blitzer is in grave error if he thinks that Congress should not compromise simply because Obama was re-elected. In fact, the congressional make-up remains as it is because the same people re-elected that make-up. That is the bottom line.

  • Orangeone
  • The problem, Wolf (can I call you Wolf?), is that this ain’t 1976 any more. We aren’t talking about an increase in the budget for the Navy, versus more animal-free testing for cosmetics. We’re here in 2013, and much of the world, including our President, wants us to be taken down a notch. In short: to be damaged; to have OUR CITIZENS pay the price for some supposed wrong. A wrong, by the way, that has been incurred many times by many other countries since long before the US was born. But let’s not let mere histoire get in the way of a good narrative.

    (Never mind that the US Constitution has played the biggest role in ending evil in the world.)

    Let’s look at reality, Wolf. See, when the pilot has died, and the airplane is in a total tailspin, you don’t compromise with the “let ‘er crash!” faction. There’s no “workable halfway” between “crash and burn” and “survive.”

    So, we’re going to survive, Wolf. We’ll do what it takes. You might not like it. In fact, I’m guessing you’ll hate it. You: you get nothing.

    We learned that from Barack the destroyer, Wolf. Choose your side carefully.

    • colliemum

      Yep – and wasn’t it Sarah Palin who went to Texas and worked for his campaign to secure the GOP nomination?

    • Ronald Reagan would be considered a “RINO” in today’s Republican Party, and would by no means side with the ideals/policies of the majority of Tea Partiers.

      • You’re an leftwing liberal troll idiot drone as usual..

        Governor Ronald Reagan (R-CA)
        Conservative Political Action Conference, Washington, DC
        February 6, 1977
        “I have always been puzzled by the inability of some political and media types to understand exactly what is meant by adherence to political principle. All too often in the press and the television evening news it is treated as a call for “ideological purity.” Whatever ideology may mean, and it seems to mean a variety of things, depending upon who is using it—it always conjures up in my mind a picture of a rigid, irrational clinging to abstract theory in the face of reality. We have to recognize that in this country “ideology” is a scare word. And for good reason. Marxist-Leninism is, to give but one example, an ideology. All the facts of the real world have to be fitted to the Procrustean bed of Marx and Lenin. If the facts don’t happen to fit the ideology, the facts are chopped off and discarded.
        I consider this to be the complete opposite to principled conservatism. If there is any political viewpoint in this world which is free from slavish adherence to abstraction, it is American conservatism.” -unquote

        “A Time for Choosing” by Ronald Reagan

  • Blitzer: “I’m asking you about if you’ll work with Obama on immigration not only because you’re a Republican Senator from Texas but also because of your Hispanic origins.”
    Wolf Blitzer squadron is a bigot.

  • kong1967

    Liberals make we want to scream and to slap them upside their noggins. They consistently say we should work with Obama and basically give him what he wants because he won the election.

    Listen, dipwads. After the vote for the last debt ceiling increase, Obama got his money and all we got was a promise to cut spending…to be determined by the super panel. What did the Dems do in that panel? They did a turnabout and refused to cut anything, demanding to raise taxes instead…leading to a deadlock going nowhere. Now, to avoid the fiscal cliff that resulted from the lying-ass Democrats who deadlocked the super panel, Republicans gave Obama his tax increases and increased spending, and Obama didn’t cut a single freaking thing. Oh, the cuts…ONCE AGAIN….is just a promise for down the road.

    Democrats are a bunch of lying snakes. Obama is the one refusing to work with Republicans…it’s his way or the highway. Additionally, Dems not only didn’t work with Bush when he was President, they worked to sabatage him constantly. So don’t tell me that we have to work with Obama because he won the election. We maintained control of Congress…which means Republicans are in charge of the money…..not Obama. They just need to get a backbone and tell Obama he’s not getting another dime until he agrees to massive spending cuts that take effect IMMEDIATELY…not at some imaginary time in the future.

    • I’m a Democrat. I agree that we need to cut spending, and I think that Obama will address this issue. If he doesn’t we as a nation will have problems in the future (he knows this).

      Couldn’t you phrase your opinion in a different way so that there could be a debate in this country rather than both sides firing insults?

      • kong1967

        Of course, especially when approached in a decent manner. My rant isn’t against you, but rather others that keep saying that we should just cave and let Obama have what he wants because he won. I’m so tired of hearing that because he does not have dictatorial powers.

        I hope you are right and that Obama will address spending cuts. I just don’t see it. All I’ve seen the Dems want to do is spend, spend, spend. I don’t want to see “we’ll cut spending over the next decade” because it doesn ‘t happen.

        That in itself is going to be a major battle. Republicans and Dems alike will probably go after social security instead of big government. People call that an entitlement and I disagree. People pay for it their entire lives, so they damn well deserve to collect their own money back when they retire. I want them to go after pensions and bloated government salaries. But that’s an argument for another day.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Well said, Senator Cruz! Excellent, rational and cogent arguments.

    I hope the real conservatives in both houses join together to fight against tyranny – foreign and domestic.

  • Blitzer gives me a swift pain. Did the Democrats roll over and die in 2004 when Bush was re-elected? Not on your life. Not only did they become more liberal, they refused to work with Bush on just about everything. And guess what happened? They won the House back in 2006 and then the White House in 2008 with a very liberal candidate. Wolf is full of it. Now, more than ever, do conservatives need to stand for something so that Americans can have a clear choice in 2014 for something different. THAT is how you win. Not with compromise, but with standing for something.

  • NCHokie02

    I didn’t watch the video. I would probably get too frustrated. However I would have like Cruz to tell Wolf. “No I don’t need to bend to Obama’s will because the House was re-elected Republican (unfortunately not conservative though) and the House controls the money. Not the executive branch.”

    He then should have given Wolf a school lesson in how the three branches of government work since they obviously have no idea. “Obama won! He can do what he needs to.” Ummm….no he’s not a dictator. I know he doesn’t really care about the Constitution but that is the law of the land and what he needs to follow.

  • colliemum

    Well done Texas for electing Ted Cruz!

    Isn’t it deeply disturbing that meejah people like Mr Blitzer and his female sidekick – and that Rep from Hawaii – think that everybody has to ‘follow the leader’, i.e. the POS in the WH, or Harry Reid, because ‘they won’? They have no grasp of what ‘opposition’ means, they have imbued the totalitarian politics to such an extent that it doesn’t even occur to them that opposition is necessary.
    That is truly frightening.

    Btw – why did that Hawaiian rep have to wear all these leaves round her neck?
    As fashion statement it was a total fail. She’d have done better to have hung some tinsel garlands round her neck – after all, the twelve days of Christmas are not quite over yet!

  • Rocco11

    The question remains, is there a point to Republicans going on these Leftist propaganda networks?

  • Why is Wolf lecturing a US senator? Becuase he is a republican. Does he ever lecture Dem’s? Why of course not!

    • Blitzer’s question to any DemocRat starts with intros like this: “since you have practically created a paradise now, where everybody is sooo happy and grateful to you…..”
      Mentally poor, orientation-lost, brain dead, bag of caca on 2 legs.

    • Here is a video of Wolf Blitzer lecturing a Democrat: http://www.jammiewf.com/2012/wolf-blitzer-destroys-hapless-wasserman-schultz/

      Don’t be stupid.

      • Hadn’t seen that one ballfan, touche’. I still think journalists would be better served if they asked penetrating questions, rather than lectured guests. Penetrating questions and civility both seem to be rather rare these days.

  • The grinning Buteo buteo’s with it’s furious appetite is still feeding on the eagle, always looking for compromise as it feeds like cancer, that kills it’s host.

  • Kordane

    Why the hell should ANYONE compromise with tyranny?

    To compromise even a tiny bit with tyranny is to surrender your RIGHT to liberty!!!

    • Where’s the tyranny? We just extended the largest tax cuts in the nation’s history…

      • Kordane

        Those bills are still going to have to be paid, and what you’re forgetting is that the government has just permitted itself to spend even more money with absolutely no spending cuts / fiscal restraint at all. Temporary tax cuts are nothing but a postponement on paying for future obligations.

        As for my comment, I made it in reference to Wolf Blitzer saying that people shouldn’t be “overly idealistic” and that they “have to compromise”. It was more of a general comment about the notion that one ‘must’ compromise with the Left.

        Don’t fool yourself into thinking that just because the Democrats give some tax cuts to their favored ‘voting bloc’ that they actually care about liberty; unlike Republicans do when they advocate tax cuts for the purpose of advancing the cause of liberty. The only thing Democrats care about is advancing the cause of tyranny; everything they do is geared towards this end; they’ll fool a lot of useful idiots in this process.

  • EchoMike


    You lost, so we expect you to sit down, shut up, and do what you’re told.

    Somehow I don’t think that when the roles are evntually reversed, and the Rep control 2, or three, branches of govt that he’ll be as enthusiastic in telling Dems to do the same thing.

    As far as immigration goes, the party as a whole needs to stand firm and say that not one “Immigration Bill” gets one Rep vote until the border is secure!
    Bill 1: Secure the border
    Bill 2: Reform the current immigration system so that legal immigrantion takes months, not years. Also, make sure we enforce penalties on those people who have expired immigration status, and make the process to renew status more efficient.
    Bill 3: This won’t be popular, but there needs to be some kind of penatly for those who are here illegally, and then once that requirement has been fulfilled, they can be granted a legal status, but NOT citizenship.

  • Blitzer, you’ve meant to say: “you cannot be overly OPTIMISTIC, he won”…..
    We know you are not at ease with words; we watched your silence on “Jeopardy”.
    Some people mature with age, but you are just getting old.
    And more stupid every day.

  • Conservator1

    Wolf Blitzer is a nice man, but cling’s to a hard left progressive ideology. Of course Wolf is a simpleton who ignores that Americans voted to maintain Republican control of the House.

    Wolf cares not about their mandate and like all leftists in the media, insists that Obama and Democrats in the Senate have a mandate which means ALL REPUBLICANS in Congress must acquiesce to the wants and demands of Obama and the Democratic progressive machine.

    Unfortunately for Wolf, he was interviewing a new Senator who is extremely intelligent and very articulate in voicing conservative principles. Ted Cruz has a great future in the Senate and will eventually be on a Republican ticket as a VP nominee. This man is talented and very impressive and thus, it would not surprise me if he’s the first Hispanic to be nominated to run for President as a Republican – and he will win.

    Yet I’m sure when this occurs, Wolf will insist that Democrats must NOT
    compromise and be concessionary” to conservative Republicans. The left MSM will never concern themselves about being “overly idealistic” or the need for them to “embrace this reality.”

  • Someone tell Blitzer to shut up and perhaps he should tell that to Obama.

  • NJK

    Either what passes for people entering journalism school today is incredibly stupid or they’re as destructive as Zero. I’m not sure which it is.

    I’m so sick of them using the “Middle class,” blah, blah, blah. They use the so called “Middle class,” like they use the black race, except, I as a “Middle class,” person, am not falling for it. I don’t need these incompetent, and some of them criminal boobs, doing for me. They are condescending and insult anyone with enough intelligence to see through it.

    Do me a favor, all of you idiot incompetent boobs, don’t pander to the “Middle class,” anymore. Use the blacks if they feel special because of it, but I’m not stupid. I know what you’re doing. Bankrupting my country for me and my children is insulting and contemptable.

    Ted Cruz has argued cases in front of the Supreme Court. He’s smarter than all of those sitting with them combined. Wolf Blitzer is describing Zero when he talks about someone saying my way or the highway. They project everything they do onto you.

    By the way, my spouse knows the contractor who built Blitzer’s home. He is a millionaire or billionaire. I suggest, he move into a more modest home, and give half his income to pay off the plundering that Mitch McConnell, Zero, Boehner, and everyone that voted to rob the poor people who are running small businesses back. And maybe Hollywood, who are also the real millionaires and billionaires didn’t need a tax break.

    They’re using American citizens to plunder and pad the pockets of their friends. They’re thieves in suits and ties. Don’t let the package fool you.

  • NJK

    We’re living with Zero and The Peoples Temple. One day in history, it will be said, can you imagine people falling for this guy? Can you believe they followed this no one, this drug using nobody, over the cliff. Just like Jim Jones. Rev. my foot. He was a card carrying communist since the age of 21. He was an athiest. He had ties to Jerry Brown, Harvey Milk, and Jimmy Carter. Hundreds of mostly black people, followed him to their deaths. That’s who Zero preys on. And just like the drones who follow Zero, you can’t convince them otherwise. He’s their God. Wolf, you aren’t as smart as you’d like to think.


    • One day in history people will remember how brainwashed the radical Republicans in our country were.

    Wolf Blitzer and the rest of the Liberal Media just don’t get it !!! What will it take for them to pull their heads out of the sand ?? It’s so frustrating even trying to reason with Liberals. I used to think that the talk of a Civil War coming to the US was just that …idle TALK. Too many people have had enough of this Administration and Obama is strutting around as though he won by a landslide !!! Our Country cannot withstand another 4 years of this and I fear for the alternatives.

  • hadmorethanenuf

    Blitzer and the rest of the Liberal Media just don’t get it !!! What will it take for them to pull their heads from the sand ?? I used to think that talk of a coming Civil War in this Country was just that…idle TALK – but now, I’m not too sure. Obama struts around as though he won the election by a landslide. If you take out those who voted for him that are illiterate, the results would be different. I really fear for this Country of ours and another four years of this will ruin this Country. Why must we compromise on the issues that will surely cause our demise ??

    • If you look at the numbers, the majority of college graduates (read: the most literate) in this country voted for President Obama.

      I’m not defending Blitzer because I think he’s smug and annoying, but for you to say that Obama loses without “stupid” voters is, well, stupid.

  • misterlogic0013

    Ted Cruz I have your back .. will continue to support you / Sarah Palin / Tea Party ..thanks

  • whamprod

    Wolf Blitzer can go screw himself. He would say no such thing to any incoming democrat if a republican were in office. What an idiot.

  • hadmorethanenuf

    Ball Fan – you’re missing the point – Even if Obama got 2/3 of College Graduates, the result would be different. I really think that in order to qualify to vote, you need to have the intelligence to understand the issues. Have you seen the interviews with some people who voted for Obama ??? So who’s being naive and stupid here??
