The shutdown is barely over and Cruz is planning to instigate another. There’s something about providing health care to the currently uninsured that crawls up the idiots back and tells him that he can become POTUS. He might win that election in Texas and some of the other red states. But he’s generated enough hatred directed toward his self to make winning a national election highly unlikely.
The number of people claiming to believe Cruz is working for the nation is agonizingly high. I’m reminded of the VietNam war protests and the counter protests organized by political fund raisers. Pete Seeger’s song comes to mind. If overlaid to today, it describes Cruz and the other teavangelists very well.
“Maybe you're still walking, you're still talking
You'd like to keep your health.
But every time I read the papers
That old feeling comes on;
We're waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.”
