While watching the This Week interview with Ted Cruz, I kept having a thought that if Mr. S would prick the man with a pin, he would fly all over the room. What a bag of wind --spewing criticisms, evading questions, looking hopeful. I'm hopeful, too, that the Republican Party will have better sense than to ever do this man to our country. And he's even a Tea Partier. I thought this Primary period was laying those dudes to rest.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I heard he delivered for the Tea Party in Texas. But isn't that the state that keeps threatening to secede from the Union? Maybe we should just let them.
The one thing that came through with clarity was if he were in charge, we would be at war, war, war. Didn't he learn anything from the results of the previous Republican hawks? War brings debt. Debt brings a dysfunctional economy. A dysfunctional economy brings a financial crisis. The crisis brings a long-term recovery dependent on less spending -- yes less spending even on war.
But, like all Monday morning quarterbacks, he is a self-proclaimed expert on what woulda, shoulda, coulda been done by somebody who wasn't in the heat of the game.
Please let the Republican Party be too smart to do him to our country.
