No. I don't think Chinese people can accept an old guy with three marriages.

Ted Cruz should not be on any committee involving NASA and/or science:

Of course after questioning why NASA does Earth science this was revealed:

Common Core is a state led effort. I'm not sure the federal government has much skin in that game for it to be repealed

So what is his purpose for running? He has to understand that he doesn't have a chance, does he just want to collect money? Start gathering a mailing list for future campaigns? Hope to transition into a speaking tour or Fox News job? What?

I've already seen R's describe him as:

1) The candidate that both parties can vote for
2) Not conservative enough
3) A breath of fresh air that gives disgruntled R's a candidate they can vote for


HE IS NONE OF THESE THINGS. WHY OH WHY.

is this about controlling the narrative in conservative media (i.e. controlling what issues are issues for conservatives)? i just can't think of any other strategic reason.

I hope people realize the students of Liberty were forced to attend the speech or else face a fine. There were quite a few who posted about how they didn't want to be there on social media.

Quote :
"Liberty University released the following statement from President Jerry Falwell:

“Convocation is not a worship service. Convocation is Liberty’s educational forum for students to hear from speakers with a wide diversity of viewpoints from all walks of life — entertainment, business, politics, ministry, and more — many of whom are globally respected as experts in their areas. It is no secret that Convocation is held three times a week and attendance is required, just like class is required for students. No one is expected to agree with every speaker on every point. In fact, Convocation speakers do not all line up with traditional Evangelical Christian viewpoints or even Liberty University’s doctrinal statement. A fundamental part of the college experience is being exposed to a variety of viewpoints so students can better understand why they hold their own beliefs and be better prepared to defend them. Liberty intentionally gives every student this opportunity to become well-rounded on important matters of faith and culture.

The fact that some students attended the service wearing T-shirts supporting another potential candidate shows that our students are not indoctrinated; they are free — and encouraged — to form their own opinions about what they hear in Convocation and to express it.

I should, however, point out that standing ovations are not required. Students are free to cheer or boo as they see fit. I also think it is irresponsible to take anonymous social media posts and assume that they are students, or are representative of the entire student body.

It fills me with great pride, then, to see that our students consistently provide such a warm atmosphere for every speaker who comes to campus, regardless if they agree with them or not.

Right after Convocation today, a pre-med student, who is a Democrat, came up to me and shared his appreciation for Convocation and how we bring in such a diverse panel of speakers. He said that he appreciated the opportunity to hear from Sen. Cruz so close to his announcement to run for president. He appreciated that Liberty was chosen as a platform for such a prominent moment. The student told me that he enjoyed the speech and even found some common ground with Senator Cruz on many issues.”"

So I felt like Romney was a pretty decent candidate. He lost because conservative Christians didn't get out and vote.

The next middle-of-the-road Republican candidate is going to lose for the same reason. The conservative Christians are going to be pissed that Cruz or Huckabee didn't get the nomination, and they are going to stay home.

Of course it doesn't look like we even have a decent middle-of-the-road candidate this time around.

Cruz will be the rallying point for talking heads. Hannity, Beck and Rush honestly believe that people will get out and vote for a candidate that is truly "conservative." They've filled Cruz's head with this shit, and Cruz really believes he's got a shot.

what about the inverse of that?

i'd imagine that by presenting a candidate sufficiently conservative or to the right, that it will motivate scare liberals to get out and vote against the conservative candidate.

"You know, music is interesting. I grew up listening to classic rock and I’ll tell you sort of an odd story. My music tastes changed on 9/11. And it’s a very strange—I actually, intellectually, find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded. And country music collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me and I have to say, it—just as a gut level, I had an emotional reaction that says, “These are my people.” And so ever since 2001 I listen to country music, but I’m an odd country music fan because I didn’t listen to it prior to 2001"
