jeb bush to the wattles: propose an alternative and show a little self-restraint...,


RCP | JONATHAN KARL, ABC NEWS: But I just spoke to Ted Cruz and he was the guy who said, hey, let's not agree to a funding resolution unless ObamaCare is defunded. That was the strategy that really kicked it off and he told me that he will now do anything he can to stop ObamaCare and he does not rule out pushing to the brink once again.

What would your message be to Ted Cruz?

JEB BUSH: Well, frankly, I think the best way to repeal ObamaCare is to have an alternative. We never hear the alternative. We could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles, and two, show how ObamaCare, flawed to its core, doesn't work.

So have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be a politically better approach to see the massive dysfunction. But we don't even hear about that because we've stepped on that message. And I think Republicans need to just take a step back and allow -- show a little self-restraint and let this happen a little more organically.

I believe the GOP is setting Cruz's stupid ass to take the fall for their problems. His arrogance isn't allowing him to see that so he's running face first to an ass whupping. I've heard about how smart this boy is but smart is situational. Being good in the classroom isn't enough. You have to understand the environment you're in.

lol, I'm so glad somebody else gave voice to this sentiment. Cruz looks lowdown and poorer than a snake to me too. It took an assassin's bullet to wake Wallace up, but I don't see anything shaking Cruz out of the notorious stumpenfuhrer role into which he's cast himself.

Cruz has clenchpoop written all over him. Don't be surprised if he requires surgical intervention to get that near-coprolithic bolus removed from his colon.

The GOP had a total absolute winning hand in the shutdown - they were holding a Royal Flush and simply folded. They should have said, "There will be no budget deal unless it includes total repeal of Obamacare" and then simply stood fast totally and completely. At some level, everyone with at least two functioning brain cells has to realize that having the government running is more important than having Obamacare active, enormous pressure would have been applied on the Dems to cave. GOP could have simply sat back and told the complainers to FO....
