Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his Republican colleagues won the shutdown drama in October by letting the American people know about ObamaCare. The full results will depend upon Republicans continuing to implement conservatives’ obvious plan of letting the American people know how ObamaCare is controlling their lives!
Approval has dropped 5% for Obama since the October government shutdown, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal opinion survey. My guess is that Obama’s approval rating has dropped even further since who the heck can trust NBC News? Obama’s disapproval rating is now a toxic 51 percent, as even Obama-worshiping NBC News admits. In general, it is said that over 50 percent of voters disapproving is considered fatal for an incumbent office holder. Although, Obama is not facing re-election and cheated is way to the office (over 100% turnout). However, in a way, Obama is facing re-election — facing the 2014 congressional elections. If the Republicans hold on to the House (most likely) and take over the Senate, then Obama will have trouble screwing the American people with his leftist agenda!
Forty-seven percent now think that ObamaCare is a bad idea, up four percent in this same poll from early October. The race for governor in Virginia has tightened up to within two percent, although Ken Cuccinelli’s campaign probably will not withstand the outrageous, lies told about him by the Democrat. And Obama, of course, is going to Virginia today to tell more lies!
Skeptics ask: What was achieved by Ted Cruz with his 21-hour filibuster against ObamaCare on the floor of the U.S. Senate? Well, now the American people know that Obama is a LIAR and that ObamaCare was NOT what Obama sold to the people! What did Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives accomplish by trying to delay or defund ObamaCare?
Several things. To begin with the people realizing that Obama that Obama really is not a nice guy and letting average voters see Obama’s snarl. The shutdown revealed that Obama is a vindictive, petty tyrant in conflict with his political image, carefully created for superficial “hope and change” voters.
Above all else, Ted Cruz made it clear to the American people that the ObamaCare disaster is the Democrats’ baby. Sen. Cruz, Sen. Mike Lee, and other Republicans succeeded in sharply separating the Republican Party from the ObamaCare looming disasters, that are now upon us. So now Democrats own this mess lock, stock, and barrel with many seeking to delay since they have re-elections in 2014!
In addition, Cruz anticipated that the American people would realize eventually: “Holy Cow! Those Republicans were right!” In fact, Cruz seized on a perfect opportunity and the impacts of ObamaCare are still in the process of unfolding.
The ObamaCare website fiasco was part of Ted Cruz’s strategy all along. In fact, it did not take any kind of genius to know that these embarrassing developments were coming — only the courage to act on insight. Millions of Americans being canceled from their insurance and sticker shock from shockingly high rate increases were all built in to the Democrats’ Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Sen. Cruz, Sen. Lee, and the conservatives understand Ronald Reagan’s techniques: winning the policy debate in the public square will eventually drives elections. Appealing to the public on issues eventually changes the votes in Congress. Ask the Democrats or the Republicans like McCain?
Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are following Reagan’s approach, knowing that persuading the public eventually changes votes in Congress. As most know, Reagan appealed directly to the voters and his with persistence he dominated our nation’s politics!
Many of Cruz’s critics argue that the shutdown interfered with the public relations failure of the October 1 roll out of ObamaCare. The critics claim that conservatives bumped embarrassing news for Obama off the front pages of the news. Well, that is nonsense.
Spending a few weeks on the debt ceiling and budget was never going to be news about the much longer disasters of ObamaCare and the roll out! Ted Cruz and the Conservative Republicans could easily see that. In fact, the Republican battle actually intensified the ObamaCare mess in news coverage by focusing attention on the topic with the government shutdown being forgotten!
As I said, the ObamaCare roll out fiasco is being experienced by the voters. Generally, the voters learn about an issue only through the news – who always seem to support Obama and his thugs! However, in this case, the liberal journalists cannot spin voters’ real-world experiences and screw them by telling more lies. JUST A NOTE: I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THE PEOPLE STILL SUPPORT THE MEDIA THAT IS WILLING TO LIE TO THEM!
Ted Cruz and his conservative friends sharply distanced the Republican Party from ObamaCare. To reshape the country, liberals always have to sucker gullible moderate and liberal Republicans like John McCain and Mitch McConnell into sharing the blame. One of the greatest weapons liberals have to “fundamentally transform America” is to deny the voters a choice. Thus, the roll out debacle will not help Republicans in the 2014 elections unless the voters clearly understand that Republicans fought against ObamaCare and are NOT the same as Democrats!
