The Divine Mr. Cruz
, siding with Rand Paul against Chris Christie,
is interesting. Marco Rubio
, now the weasel of the group, will surely join them. It's almost a former-tweener generational thing - everyone's born between 1960 and 1970 - and Rand has what little real charisma The Three Little Brothers
possess. Scott Walker
doesn't look stupid (so far) so I wouldn't think he'd want to be associated with Ron's snot-nosed kid:
“If he cared about protecting this country, maybe he wouldn’t be in this, “Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all the money you have in Washington, or don’t have,’ and he’d be a little more fiscally responsive and know that the way we defend our country, the way we have enough money for national defense, is by being frugal and not by saying, ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme’ all the time.”
I can tell you, after decades of playing the dozens, that didn't look good from the cheap seats. And Christie easily deflected it, with Hot Air
(I think wrongly) calling Christie "an 'angry RINO' charging at rivals on the right" when Christie's only crime, as far as I can tell - and always as a Republican
- was merely to care for the people of his state in a disaster.
There's a remote chance Scott Walker would see the wisdom in that approach to leadership:
“I find it interesting that Sen. Paul is accusing us of having a ‘gimme, gimme, gimme’ attitude towards federal spending when in fact New Jersey is a donor state and we get 61 cents back on every dollar we send to Washington,” Christie said. “And interestingly, Kentucky gets $1.51...”
The Right, now, doesn't realize how culturally right they've swung under Obama - just as the Left didn't realize it under Bush. Their courting of the hispanic vote has been ugly, cynical, grasping,
and futile, verging on unAmerican.
They've forgotten how to win votes.
They've forgotten why they're there at all.
Doesn't anybody just want to run on being an American anymore?
I mean, I don't know about you but, considering what's coming,
if a Christie/Walker/Center/Right ticket is shaping up, I'm welcoming it,...
