Lose with Cruz

From an article a few days ago at Politico:

“People think we lose with Cruz, but we don’t lose everything,” said the operative, who opposes Trump and asked to speak anonymously. “He’s still a real Republican. We don’t lose the House and Senate with Cruz. We don’t lose our soul as a party and we can recover in four years and I’m not sure people think we can recover from Donald Trump.”

Said one high-level operative inside the Koch network: “He’s the devil you know.”

Indeed, many establishment Republicans would rather lose with Cruz and play a long 2020 game than risk having their party and conservative principles hijacked by Trump—a candidate they do not trust even as they recognize his political dexterity and the possibility that he could be just cagey enough to win on Election Day.

It’s too bad that my #TrumpOrDemocrat hashtag didn’t catch on. If the GOPe could be convinced that large numbers of Republican Trump supporters would vote DOWN THE LINE for Democrats if the nomination is stolen from Trump, and consequently Republicans would lose the Senate and possibly even the House, that would scare the GOPe into supporting Trump. It’s the only way to fight #LoseWithCruz.

  1. “We don’t lose our soul as a party.”

    Bwaahh hah hah!!!

    As America’s greatest troubadour said, “When you ain’t got nothin’ you got nothin’ to lose.”

    The “soul” of the Republican party! Yes, it’s that dirty, crumpled up black and sticky thing on the floor of the men’s room janitorial closet in the Capitol building, where the Republicans kicked it forty years ago.

    • Serving and representing the interest and will of the people who vote for them is not a Republican principle.


      March 30, 2016 at 5:43 pm

      • Since when did the white working class vote Republican? Other than two Presidents (Nixon and Reagan) the white working class votes reliably Democratic. There are other elections than for the president.

        I think everyone here is going overboard. The Republican Party represents its constituents (the moneyed aristocracy and their servants) very well. That’s what guys like Otis bemoan. Just because you hate them doesn’t change matters.

  2. Oy, OT but today it’s clear that Trump is very confused…he’s about like a redneck prole suddenly elevated to candidate status, popping off about this and that. Says he’s pro choice, because that sounds Good, then says he’s pro life, because that sounds good…thinks education and healthcare are federal responsibilities. He’s just fucking up all over the place.

    • Right, his blooper on abortion is a good example of that. He should have just said, “it’s been decided on the federal level with Roe v. Wade, now let the states handle it their way.” When it comes to subjects where he doesn’t give a shit, he’s vague and contradictory, and he knows that he doesn’t appeal to the trucons, so he waffles. It’s painful.

      Contrast that with Sanders. When asked by Anderson Cooper whether or not he prays for guidance, he said, “No.” I don’t agree with his economics, but jeez, I love a guy who can say something like that to a smarmy bullshit artist like Anderson Cooper.

  3. The central lie of the Trump movement is that his supporters are not merely rallying behind an already-popular celebrity candidate, but are rather part of a broad, grassroots movement to overthrow the Republican Party.

    No one has been overthrowing incumbent GOP senators, Congressmen, governors, or state reps. The Trump movement, in that sense, is nothing like the Tea Party circa 2010.

    The Trump movement doesn’t understand the constitution and subscribes to magical thinking that the president can just abracadabra simple solutions to complex problems. Since Trump is polling badly behind Hillary, it does not strike me as irrational for the GOP elders to favor at least nominating a candidate who will not do undue damage to down-ballot candidates who will be required to maintain strong checks and balances on President Hillary Clinton.

    Cruz will probably lose, but will ensure a strong Republican opposition survives. Trump could easily kill winnable races with his completely incompetent, ignorant rhetoric, such as his business today about wanting to “punish” women who get abortions.


    March 30, 2016 at 5:24 pm

    • > doesn’t understand the constitution

      We understand it much better than you do. We understand that the Constitution is an inanimate piece of paper in a museum. It cannot compel people to action or inaction. Only the military can do that, and the military serves the president.

      It is only because of long-standing custom that the legislature still has a smidgen of influence. They certainly don’t have the power to stop a president from doing something that he really puts his mind to. The president is now the primary source of legislation through his use of executive orders. Legislative authority will continue to shift from congress to the presidency.

      It isn’t a pretty reality, but it is the reality that we live in.


      March 30, 2016 at 6:02 pm

    • “The Trump movement doesn’t understand the constitution”

      TruCons don’t yet understand that the Constitution is a dead letter, virtually meaningless. And it will be ENTIRELY meaningless if Obama or Hillary pick the next member of the Supremes.

      “subscribes to magical thinking that the president can just abracadabra simple solutions to complex problems.”

      Obama is having no problem whatsoever getting things done in precisely this way. But then, he has no real opposition, only a fake “opposition” party.

      For starters, Trump on Day One could order vigorous enforcement of ALL existing immigration laws. That would be a nice start considering they haven’t really been enforced in decades. He can put National Guard on the border Day One. He could even give them “shoot to kill” orders if he wanted. Presidents can do a whole hell of a lot without any Congressional oversight or other quaint “Constitutional” things that, in practice, no longer exist.

      “the GOP elders… to maintain strong checks and balances on President Hillary Clinton.”

      Ha ha ha!! As if that’s what they cared about! Hey, 1980 called. It wants its political naivete back.

      “but will ensure a strong Republican opposition survives.”

      Survives? Survives? That suggests it’s alive. It’s not. It doesn’t exist. At all. Oh sure, sure, stupid TruCons will spittle their dickeys over paying for birth control or whatever, but they don’t say boo about any real problems.

      “Trump could easily kill winnable races with his completely incompetent, ignorant rhetoric, such as his business today about wanting to “punish” women who get abortions.”

      Thanks for repeating the smear, brother.

      CONSTITOOSHUN, YUHR!!! Enjoy the Mark Levin show tonight.

      This seems to be the self image of many Trump haters and Obama haters – White guys who want to defend “their constitution” against attacks by Obama and “cultural marxists” and by ignorant Trumpkins who don’t understand constitutional limitations on the presidency.

        Of course they are. According to Christianity Christ’s dad is the supreme God of the Hebrews. How can they worship the Israelite God (in three figureheads) and not be obligated to be pro-Israel.

        They’re as obligated to at least be favorable to Israel as Muslims are to Mecca; probably more so because Mohammed never claimed to be the living breathing son of Allah.

        They also believe we are living in the “End of Days”,

        Wrong. Only some Evangelical sects think these are the end times.

    • Gompers,

      Who are you trying to fool, or are you just deluding yourself? The GOPe is a huge supporter of mass immigration and offshore outsourcing…in other words, they are fully in support of the Democrats importing ringers and exporting jobs to use against the very base of the Republican Party.

      How do you imagine the party being “stronger” at some point when the Party itself supports the massive demographic replacement of the white Republican base?


      March 30, 2016 at 7:11 pm

      • Okay kiddos, the constitution is the rule of law. It’s what compels the cops and judiciary to respect your fundamental rights and freedoms and places limitations on government powers. This happens literally hundreds of thousands of times every single day across this great land of ours. Ask anyone who… works.

        Obama, for whatever his other sins, is not ruling us as a tyrant and a Congressional House and Senate have curbed his ambitions, and thus the practical consequences of his administration, significantly. Some of his initiatives have also been defeated in the courts. Because we have a Democratic president and a Republican Congress, neither side gets to do everything they want. This is called checks and balances.

        If you guys want to role-play that you’re living in Weimar Germany where all law is in tatters and the country is on the brink of smoking ruin, and the only thing that can save a country you don’t even seem to like all that much is electing a washed-up reality TV star as president, that’s your right.

        But guess what. Even Daddy Trump isn’t going to set up concentration camps for Mexicans. In fact, he’ll probably bring in more, as he has often said he would. Whoops. Maybe you should find a new deal breaker issue to revolve your entire political worldview around.


        March 30, 2016 at 9:32 pm

      • @Gompers,

        A president has tremendous power, both symbolic and real. He can issue executive orders. He *is* the executive branch of government – one man, equal to the Congress, and to SCOTUS. That’s the formal part. The symbolic part is that he is the symbolic daddy of the country, the wise and impartial patriarch who settles the arguments of the squabbling parties when there is no end in sight. I think that the symbolic aspects of the presidency are actually greater than the formal, but that’s me.

        A President Trump would not be able to inspire, or to settle arguments. On the contrary, he would inspire his opponents to ever greater acts of irrational fury, which I suspect is part of his appeal to the alt-right, which is baying for blood. They want a freak-out.

        This is a shame, as I happen to agree with most of Trump’s ideas, except the stupid one about abortion. It is a shame that the only candidate running for president who cares about the actual country he is running to lead is an unqualified buffoon.


        March 31, 2016 at 9:18 am

    • Repeat after me: “Muslims suck. Overseas Muslims have no rights under the U.S. Constitution and have no entitlement to come here. Islam insists on fusion of church and state, and is therefore directly antithetical to basic American values including those championed by Democrats/liberals these last 50 years. Enforcement of a ban against Muslim immigration is an Executive function, and Trump would not need the agreement of Congress or the courts to effect his announced plan. Let’s make a deal. You (aholes) get all the abortion and welfare you want, and we get a country that’s Isis-free. Attention Asian and Latino voters! You know that’s a good deal.

      Jesus. I mean, Jesus. Can you name the museum?

      Seriously, that inanimate piece of paper is why you aren’t in a cold, dark place, scratching your name on the wall, in your own blood. (Yes, I used to read memoirs by survivors of the Gulag.)

  5. I think you’re right Lion. I’ve just closed all my Trump positions for a nice profit in a private betting market I participate in. Bought a few Cruz positions for the nomination. Cruz will win Wisconsin because those slow-witted farm people don’t like that Trump pointed out how ugly Heidi Cruz is. Time is running out for Trump to make a deal with Rubio to release the dirt on Cruz’ sex scandal. It’s far from over for Trump but it’s not looking good.


    March 30, 2016 at 5:32 pm

  6. In polls, Cruz does better than Trump in matchups against Hillary. It’s not clear to me that Trump has a better chance in the general election. He could attract some blue collar whites but also turn off college-educated Republicans who cannot stand him — I am one of them.


    March 30, 2016 at 5:35 pm

    • Only because the MSM has laid off of Cruz while Trump’s own party has been attacking him.

      Once the MSM lets loose on Cruz, his poll numbers will drop. They may even bring up that he was born in Canada, and suddenly find proof about his affairs.

      • Yes the media is holding fire on Cruz for now. Remember how they loved John McCain until he decided to run for President? Then the New York Times made up an affair story with a lobbyist that they eventually retracted–after the damage was done.

      • Trump’s failure to go over 50% is mostly the GOPe’s fault. It feels like they prefer being the opposition party.

        Very changeable numbers if he can turn his efforts entirely against Hillary – but that effort can only begin when he’s clinched the nomination.

        Whatever Trump has on Cruz’s extramarital relations ought to all be immediately used. If Cruz is either knocked out of the race or craters in the polls because of that scandal, Trump need only fashion a deal with Kasich for the governor’s exit; at that point Trump runs unopposed (effectively) in the remaining primary states.

      • Hillary is actually a pretty good debater. It’s her strength as far as campaigns go. And Cruz wouldn’t have 17 debates to chip away at her. There are usually just 3 POTUS debates.

    If we’re going to keep moving left let the DNC push hard so we can collapse and rebuild quicker.


    March 30, 2016 at 6:05 pm

  9. I will support Trump to the end, but the guy is a buffoon without any clear thought out positions. He has great instincts, but he obviously has thought absolutely nothing through so he just blabbers whatever thought pops into his head.

    Even if Trump wins the nomination, he can’t win the general because the party will never rally behind him. There are various reasons for this but the number one reason is that he is a total jackass.

    It is better that Trump gets the nomination stolen from him at the convention and handed to the odious Cruz, who Hillary will absolutely eviscerate. Trump will go around the country bashing Cruz and tell his supporters to either vote Hillary or stay home. The Republicans will get wiped out down ballot and lose the Senate for sure, along with some seats in the house.

    Trump can’t win, so the goal should be maximum carnage and disruption instead, which really is probably better for us.

      The guy just can’t stop. Megan Kelly, Rosie O’Donnell, Heidi Cruz. Enough.

      He can’t stop the petty woman attacking even when he has been told he’s part of a War on Women.

      He can’t help himself.


      March 31, 2016 at 1:04 am

      • Trump has a tic where he repeats back the phrasing of a question and adds “We need to think about it” or “We need to look into it” and so on. That must work great in real estate deals to establish rapport with the money man across the table, but it’s poison in American politics where the guy on the other side of the table is really the American Voter who isn’t even in the room.

        By now every smart reporter in Washington is aware of Trump’s tic, and they’re mercilessly seeking to exploit it. It was Chris Matthews who put “punishing women” in a sentence, but Trump who stupidly succumbed to his framing. This is his version of Marco Rubio’s grasping at canned lines when his mind goes blank.

    • “I will support Trump to the end, but the guy is a buffoon without any clear thought out positions. He has great instincts, but he obviously has thought absolutely nothing through so he just blabbers whatever thought pops into his head.”

      You what the great thing about being a Trump supporter is? You don’t have to make excuses for him or apologize all the time like Hillary supporters do. You can just come out and say he’s a buffon, but there really isn’t any other option.

    • A tweet is not a suggestion! The role of the federal government is to run the local schools and the healthcare system!



      March 30, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    • On the contrary, Trump was brilliant. No politician since Reagan has probably been as honest as Trump was to the people last night (and had a real chance at winning — sorry Ron Paul).

      He said we have to completely re-think NATO. We’re being infiltrated by Muslim invaders who wish to do major damage. Trump trusts some Muslims but not others. We have to surveil certain mosques. We have to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country. He doesn’t want or need Cruz’s endorsements. He understands why the other candidates hate him (for not being establishment and for beating them so badly in the primaries). He’s not going to fire his campaign manager because all the world’s women and white knights say he must.

      One unmentionable truth bomb after another. All in the face of a biased, smarmy, sniggling little Anderson Cooper. It wasn’t perfect but it was awesome.

Trump recognized the question for the idiocy that it was and pivoted to issues he considers important. Security, security, security. Which is exactly right. He’s also right that there is important work to be done at the federal level by the next President to set things right in education and health care. Laws have to be passed by Congress and signed by the President to set things right again on education and health care in this country.

        Trump is exactly right.

    • Listened to him and Cruz while driving. Trump is pretty weak. Neither one can answer a question straight and this is bad. Cruz is smart and talks well, but I don’t trust him. Trump is the only choice or we lose the country.

      Its painful that Trump can’t answer a single question straight and to the point. The three most important functions of the government are security, health care and education according to Trump. He doesn’t seem to know what he is saying. How hard is it to prepare for these interviews? First time Ive listened to him for so long and he gave me a headache. Still he is the only one. This is a bad situation. Putin is an oligarch that needs to be shot, but is the best that Russia has. Netanyahu never made a promise that he hadn’t broken, but is the best Israel has. Trump is talking through his hat, but is the best America has. I’m not even talking about Europe or Tajikistan. Bad, bad situation.

    Yeah right.

    After eight years of Hillary she’ll hand off the scepter to her heir apparent VP, Julian Castro. After another eight years of “spreading the wealth around” to the useless, the American economy will be even further enfeebled and stagnant and the clientele that has grown surly, addicted, dependent and helpless will be a permanent decisive majority and will not be able to imagine any other life. Anybody with the potential to create or produce will channel his energies to value transference if he’s not totally discouraged and excluded from participation in society… Beacause straightwhitemale privilege…

    Other cultures will bury our progeny.., those we do manage to have in spite of a culture that has convinced its young women that motherhood is the absolute worst and last fate that could befall them…

    So dear friends, get used to the vibrant. By 2060 the non Hispanic white population will be 43%. Celebrate the diversity! Except those uncool pasty white bread bits…

    We’ll never have another straightwhitemale as president again.

  14. I wonder what the Founding Fathers would say if they knew that the US Constitution provided no free speech protections for their descendants, no freedom of religion for Christians, and no right to bear arms for self-defense, but did allow homosexuality, preferences to hostile invaders and infanticide? Would they believe me?
    When the government starts ignoring the law and just begins pushing their political opinions on citizens, this is past the point of no return. There is no law or government anymore. Its a Whorehouse for sale to the highest bidders, and no loyalty to our nation.
    These globalists have lost their minds. There is no world. No one wants one world government. The different peoples, cultures and religions cannot possibly be under the same laws, unless those laws do little or nothing at all. The UN has shown what a farce this is in practice. The countries argue and debate endlessly, and agree about nothing, and then the Security Council of World Powers just does whatever it wants.
    Its colonialism without the technology and development. These nuts want to destroy civilization and bring us backwards by a thousand years, making agribusinesses shut down and making people return to primitive and inefficient outdated farming methods. Every Communist country has tried it, and it led to mass starvation.
    Cruz and his wife are just globalists disguised as Christians, but that mask has fallen off with the serial adultery that Cruz has been outed on.
    They are in denial, but he’s done. His Evangelical supporters are walking away and that’s the end of his chances. Kasich is the last one standing against Trump. Lets see if they can get this loser any delegates parroting the same lines as Hillary?

    • Sanders is better on trade but worse on immigration (though I might trust Sanders more to cut down on visa abuse he would be more likely to support amnesty).

  16. You’re doing it wrong:


    March 30, 2016 at 10:17 pm

  17. On the criticism that the Trump guys don’t understand the constitution, from up thread, the Trump guys mainly support Trump because they think he will enforce the immigration laws, which is purely a constitutional function of the federal executive. No new legislation is needed.

    No one is supporting Trump due to his tax policies, which would be something Congress does.


    March 31, 2016 at 12:07 am

  18. The only question for Republicans is: Which candidate can win states that Mitt Romney lost?

    …Trump is saying he’ll bring in lots of new people, as he has throughout the primaries.

    In the Florida GOP primary, for example, Trump got nearly half a million more votes than Romney did in 2012 — and about half a million new people voted.

    Trump may be wrong, but it’s insane to say that it’s impossible for him to bring out new voters.

    What’s impossible is for any Republican candidate, other than Trump, to win a single state Romney lost.

    Ted Cruz’s corny speaking style is creepy to anyone who doesn’t already agree with everything he says. He’s the less likable, more hard-edged version of Romney.

    Every other Republican is, one way or another, a less attractive version of Romney.

    Maybe 50 years of Third World immigration means it’s too late, and even Trump can’t win. But it’s an absolute certainty that any other Republican will lose.


    March 31, 2016 at 2:26 am

    • But as the blog post explains, the GOPe KNOWS that Cruz will lose. They WANT to lose with Cruz rather than help Trump win. Trump is RACIST.

    • Trump may well “bring out some new voters” but this is a truism. Every candidate, even losers, generally do. Romney did better than McCain, for instance. The question is the gain/loss ratio.

      I really don’t get how Cruz is unelectable in a way Trump is not.

      Trump has said all sorts of vicious things about women, said there should be “punishments” for having an abortion, called Mexicans rapists, called for a Muslim ban, said more countries should have nuclear weapons, called for ground troops in the Middle East, opposes gay marriage, and supports a giant, unaffordable tax hike for the rich.

      I don’t know how Cruz could possibly make himself into more of an unattractive right wing stereotype than Trump already has.

  19. Listened to both Trump and Cruz till the end. Cruz makes a better impression, looks presidential, no reason for women not to be attracted to him, but I don’t go by that. I found people asking the questions very impressive! This is what America should look like. Great people. Wow! Very impressive! But maybe they are carefully screened?

    Neither Trump nor Cruz had the answer to the dairy farmers’ question. What this country needs is work visas for blue collar foreign workers when American workers cannot be found. Let’s say I want to open an Indian restaurant, I should be able to bring in authentic Indian cooks on a work visa. Same for farmers. These cooks come to work specifically by me, if I don’t need them or go belly up, they go back home. This makes sense to me. What about them being separated from their families for extended periods of time? That’s their choice. Nobody is forcing them into anything.

    The farmer whose family had been farming since 1800s totally blew me away. Wow! You just don’t see people like this around Brooklyn. I should visit Wisconsin. Lion, wanna go? We gonna help out on a dairy farm for a few days and see how real people live and what their needs are. I don’t get it why he needs so many workers? In Israel these farms are computerized and automated. He shouldn’t need many and those can be Americans. So maybe my idea is not good for farmers. So Lion, if we go, I can teach you Hebrew – it’s very easy and I’d taught it in the past and you can blog about the farm life in Wisconsin or are you scared of cows? Man, I haven’t had real cow milk since I’d left Russia! Lion, we can drink real milk there and blog about it, or are you worried about the germs or something? OK, what you can do is you can paint the cows while I milk them, that is up your alley or you only do nature?

    • In Israel, you can’t drink the milk from the cow and eat meat at the same time, which means you can’t enjoy delicious foods like cheeseburgers.

      • Who’s talking about Israel? Lion, you are obsessed with milk and meat. Life is about serving G-d and gaining knowledge and wisdom,not eating and drinking. I’m canceling the trip.

      Lol, there’s nothing stopping them from forming a new family on these shores. Happens all the time. Kids are US citizens.

      • Here is the article Cruz was referring to. I think my idea of work visas isn’t really necessary, except for unusual cases like Indian cooks.

        Look, if yhey fall in love and stay here, I think it’s OK. Love conquers all, dont you think so? Most won’t do it, though.

      • I am sure white people could learn how to cook Indian food.

        You ain’t gonna find a white guy that can make a dosai. These are ethnic skills. Can a Mexican make a blinz right? And a blinz is nothing compared to dosai or sushi. I’m only eating dosai from an Indian, no substitutes. My kids make good indian food, but nobody would even attempt a dosai.

  20. I’d like to see Trump pull back the curtain on the reality that Libyan rebels were ethnically cleansing black africans. In fact, emails indicate she was aware they were executing ‘foreign mercenaries’ (ie. black africans in Libya) yet she and Obama still backed them. If Trump is going to go down, he might as well expose some of the things that cast a different light on the legacy of Clinton & Obama in office.
