Ball Fan - you're missing the point - Even if Obama got 2/3 of College Graduates, the result would be different. I really think that in order to qualify to vote, you need to have the intelligence to understand the issues. Have you seen the interviews with some people who voted for Obama ??? So who's being naive and stupid here??
Wolf Blitzer can go screw himself. He would say no such thing to any incoming democrat if a republican were in office. What an idiot.
These M@#$@@%@%^@^ plead compromise for what? More taxes, Spending, Regulations, and removing our rights legal word by legal word. How about we don't compromise any because compromise isn't doing us any good.
Blitzer and the rest of the Liberal Media just don't get it !!! What will it take for them to pull their heads from the sand ?? I used to think that talk of a coming Civil War in this Country was just that...idle TALK - but now, I'm not too sure. Obama struts around as though he won the election by a landslide. If you take out those who voted for him that are illiterate, the results would be different. I really fear for this Country of ours and another four years of this will ruin this Country. Why must we compromise on the issues that will surely cause our demise ??
Wolf Blitzer and the rest of the Liberal Media just don't get it !!! What will it take for them to pull their heads out of the sand ?? It's so frustrating even trying to reason with Liberals. I used to think that the talk of a Civil War coming to the US was just that ...idle TALK. Too many people have had enough of this Administration and Obama is strutting around as though he won by a landslide !!! Our Country cannot withstand another 4 years of this and I fear for the alternatives.
Thanks for your input, Wolfie! You communist piece of crap.
We the People will decide what idealism is, not you.
SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP.
We're living with Zero and The Peoples Temple. One day in history, it will be said, can you imagine people falling for this guy? Can you believe they followed this no one, this drug using nobody, over the cliff. Just like Jim Jones. Rev. my foot. He was a card carrying communist since the age of 21. He was an athiest. He had ties to Jerry Brown, Harvey Milk, and Jimmy Carter. Hundreds of mostly black people, followed him to their deaths. That's who Zero preys on. And just like the drones who follow Zero, you can't convince them otherwise. He's their God. Wolf, you aren't as smart as you'd like to think.
Either what passes for people entering journalism school today is incredibly stupid or they're as destructive as Zero. I'm not sure which it is.
I'm so sick of them using the "Middle class," blah, blah, blah. They use the so called "Middle class," like they use the black race, except, I as a "Middle class," person, am not falling for it. I don't need these incompetent, and some of them criminal boobs, doing for me. They are condescending and insult anyone with enough intelligence to see through it.
Do me a favor, all of you idiot incompetent boobs, don't pander to the "Middle class," anymore. Use the blacks if they feel special because of it, but I'm not stupid. I know what you're doing. Bankrupting my country for me and my children is insulting and contemptable.
Ted Cruz has argued cases in front of the Supreme Court. He's smarter than all of those sitting with them combined. Wolf Blitzer is describing Zero when he talks about someone saying my way or the highway. They project everything they do onto you.
By the way, my spouse knows the contractor who built Blitzer's home. He is a millionaire or billionaire. I suggest, he move into a more modest home, and give half his income to pay off the plundering that Mitch McConnell, Zero, Boehner, and everyone that voted to rob the poor people who are running small businesses back. And maybe Hollywood, who are also the real millionaires and billionaires didn't need a tax break.
They're using American citizens to plunder and pad the pockets of their friends. They're thieves in suits and ties. Don't let the package fool you.
Wolf Blitzer is a nice man, but cling's to a hard left progressive ideology. Of course Wolf is a simpleton who ignores that Americans voted to maintain Republican control of the House.
Wolf cares not about their mandate and like all leftists in the media, insists that Obama and Democrats in the Senate have a mandate which means ALL REPUBLICANS in Congress must acquiesce to the wants and demands of Obama and the Democratic progressive machine.
Unfortunately for Wolf, he was interviewing a new Senator who is extremely intelligent and very articulate in voicing conservative principles. Ted Cruz has a great future in the Senate and will eventually be on a Republican ticket as a VP nominee. This man is talented and very impressive and thus, it would not surprise me if he's the first Hispanic to be nominated to run for President as a Republican - and he will win.
Yet I'm sure when this occurs, Wolf will insist that Democrats must NOT
"compromise and be concessionary" to conservative Republicans. The left MSM will never concern themselves about being "overly idealistic" or the need for them to "embrace this reality."
Blitzer, you've meant to say: "you cannot be overly OPTIMISTIC, he won".....
We know you are not at ease with words; we watched your silence on "Jeopardy".
Some people mature with age, but you are just getting old.
And more stupid every day.
As far as immigration goes, the party as a whole needs to stand firm and say that not one "Immigration Bill" gets one Rep vote until the border is secure!
Bill 1: Secure the border
Bill 2: Reform the current immigration system so that legal immigrantion takes months, not years. Also, make sure we enforce penalties on those people who have expired immigration status, and make the process to renew status more efficient.
Bill 3: This won't be popular, but there needs to be some kind of penatly for those who are here illegally, and then once that requirement has been fulfilled, they can be granted a legal status, but NOT citizenship.
You don't compromise with freedom!
Socialism, Communism, Fascism
11 Steps to Fascism

You lost, so we expect you to sit down, shut up, and do what you're told.
Somehow I don't think that when the roles are evntually reversed, and the Rep control 2, or three, branches of govt that he'll be as enthusiastic in telling Dems to do the same thing.
Why the hell should ANYONE compromise with tyranny?
To compromise even a tiny bit with tyranny is to surrender your RIGHT to liberty!!!
Those bills are still going to have to be paid, and what you're forgetting is that the government has just permitted itself to spend even more money with absolutely no spending cuts / fiscal restraint at all. Temporary tax cuts are nothing but a postponement on paying for future obligations.
As for my comment, I made it in reference to Wolf Blitzer saying that people shouldn't be "overly idealistic" and that they "have to compromise". It was more of a general comment about the notion that one 'must' compromise with the Left.
Don't fool yourself into thinking that just because the Democrats give some tax cuts to their favored 'voting bloc' that they actually care about liberty; unlike Republicans do when they advocate tax cuts for the purpose of advancing the cause of liberty. The only thing Democrats care about is advancing the cause of tyranny; everything they do is geared towards this end; they'll fool a lot of useful idiots in this process.
The grinning Buteo buteo's with it's furious appetite is still feeding on the eagle, always looking for compromise as it feeds like cancer, that kills it's host.
Why is Wolf lecturing a US senator? Becuase he is a republican. Does he ever lecture Dem's? Why of course not!
Here is a video of Wolf Blitzer lecturing a Democrat: http://www.jammiewf.com/2012/wolf-blitzer-destroys-hapless-wasserman-schultz/
Don't be stupid.
Blitzer's question to any DemocRat starts with intros like this: "since you have practically created a paradise now, where everybody is sooo happy and grateful to you....."
Mentally poor, orientation-lost, brain dead, bag of caca on 2 legs.
The commies at CNN start foaming at the mouth when someone doesn't conform to their Utopian plans. Gullible,stupid and blinded by hate/envy is no way to go thru life
Well done Texas for electing Ted Cruz!
Isn't it deeply disturbing that meejah people like Mr Blitzer and his female sidekick - and that Rep from Hawaii - think that everybody has to 'follow the leader', i.e. the POS in the WH, or Harry Reid, because 'they won'? They have no grasp of what 'opposition' means, they have imbued the totalitarian politics to such an extent that it doesn't even occur to them that opposition is necessary.
That is truly frightening.
Btw - why did that Hawaiian rep have to wear all these leaves round her neck?
As fashion statement it was a total fail. She'd have done better to have hung some tinsel garlands round her neck - after all, the twelve days of Christmas are not quite over yet!
I didn't watch the video. I would probably get too frustrated. However I would have like Cruz to tell Wolf. "No I don't need to bend to Obama's will because the House was re-elected Republican (unfortunately not conservative though) and the House controls the money. Not the executive branch."
He then should have given Wolf a school lesson in how the three branches of government work since they obviously have no idea. "Obama won! He can do what he needs to." Ummm....no he's not a dictator. I know he doesn't really care about the Constitution but that is the law of the land and what he needs to follow.
Blitzer gives me a swift pain. Did the Democrats roll over and die in 2004 when Bush was re-elected? Not on your life. Not only did they become more liberal, they refused to work with Bush on just about everything. And guess what happened? They won the House back in 2006 and then the White House in 2008 with a very liberal candidate. Wolf is full of it. Now, more than ever, do conservatives need to stand for something so that Americans can have a clear choice in 2014 for something different. THAT is how you win. Not with compromise, but with standing for something.
Well said, Senator Cruz! Excellent, rational and cogent arguments.
I hope the real conservatives in both houses join together to fight against tyranny - foreign and domestic.
Liberals make we want to scream and to slap them upside their noggins. They consistently say we should work with Obama and basically give him what he wants because he won the election.
Listen, dipwads. After the vote for the last debt ceiling increase, Obama got his money and all we got was a promise to cut spending...to be determined by the super panel. What did the Dems do in that panel? They did a turnabout and refused to cut anything, demanding to raise taxes instead...leading to a deadlock going nowhere. Now, to avoid the fiscal cliff that resulted from the lying-ass Democrats who deadlocked the super panel, Republicans gave Obama his tax increases and increased spending, and Obama didn't cut a single freaking thing. Oh, the cuts...ONCE AGAIN....is just a promise for down the road.
Democrats are a bunch of lying snakes. Obama is the one refusing to work with Republicans...it's his way or the highway. Additionally, Dems not only didn't work with Bush when he was President, they worked to sabatage him constantly. So don't tell me that we have to work with Obama because he won the election. We maintained control of Congress...which means Republicans are in charge of the money.....not Obama. They just need to get a backbone and tell Obama he's not getting another dime until he agrees to massive spending cuts that take effect IMMEDIATELY...not at some imaginary time in the future.
I'm a Democrat. I agree that we need to cut spending, and I think that Obama will address this issue. If he doesn't we as a nation will have problems in the future (he knows this).
Couldn't you phrase your opinion in a different way so that there could be a debate in this country rather than both sides firing insults?
Of course, especially when approached in a decent manner. My rant isn't against you, but rather others that keep saying that we should just cave and let Obama have what he wants because he won. I'm so tired of hearing that because he does not have dictatorial powers.
I hope you are right and that Obama will address spending cuts. I just don't see it. All I've seen the Dems want to do is spend, spend, spend. I don't want to see "we'll cut spending over the next decade" because it doesn 't happen.
That in itself is going to be a major battle. Republicans and Dems alike will probably go after social security instead of big government. People call that an entitlement and I disagree. People pay for it their entire lives, so they damn well deserve to collect their own money back when they retire. I want them to go after pensions and bloated government salaries. But that's an argument for another day.
Blitzer: "I'm asking you about if you'll work with Obama on immigration not only because you're a Republican Senator from Texas but also because of your Hispanic origins."
Wolf Blitzer squadron is a bigot.
Ronald Reagan would be considered a "RINO" in today's Republican Party, and would by no means side with the ideals/policies of the majority of Tea Partiers.

You're an leftwing liberal troll idiot drone as usual..
Governor Ronald Reagan (R-CA)
Conservative Political Action Conference, Washington, DC
February 6, 1977
"I have always been puzzled by the inability of some political and media types to understand exactly what is meant by adherence to political principle. All too often in the press and the television evening news it is treated as a call for “ideological purity.” Whatever ideology may mean, and it seems to mean a variety of things, depending upon who is using it—it always conjures up in my mind a picture of a rigid, irrational clinging to abstract theory in the face of reality. We have to recognize that in this country “ideology” is a scare word. And for good reason. Marxist-Leninism is, to give but one example, an ideology. All the facts of the real world have to be fitted to the Procrustean bed of Marx and Lenin. If the facts don’t happen to fit the ideology, the facts are chopped off and discarded.
I consider this to be the complete opposite to principled conservatism. If there is any political viewpoint in this world which is free from slavish adherence to abstraction, it is American conservatism." -unquote
"A Time for Choosing" by Ronald Reagan
Yep - and wasn't it Sarah Palin who went to Texas and worked for his campaign to secure the GOP nomination?
The problem, Wolf (can I call you Wolf?), is that this ain't 1976 any more. We aren't talking about an increase in the budget for the Navy, versus more animal-free testing for cosmetics. We're here in 2013, and much of the world, including our President, wants us to be taken down a notch. In short: to be damaged; to have OUR CITIZENS pay the price for some supposed wrong. A wrong, by the way, that has been incurred many times by many other countries since long before the US was born. But let's not let mere histoire get in the way of a good narrative.
(Never mind that the US Constitution has played the biggest role in ending evil in the world.)
Let's look at reality, Wolf. See, when the pilot has died, and the airplane is in a total tailspin, you don't compromise with the "let 'er crash!" faction. There's no "workable halfway" between "crash and burn" and "survive."
So, we're going to survive, Wolf. We'll do what it takes. You might not like it. In fact, I'm guessing you'll hate it. You: you get nothing.
We learned that from Barack the destroyer, Wolf. Choose your side carefully.
No O/T tonight but here is Greta's interview with the new US Senator and gentleman from South Carolina Tim Scott! http://gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/video/sen-tim-scott-on-the-record/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+foxnewsinsider%2Fgretawire+%28Gretawire%29
Wolf Blitzer and the liberals throughout America have a grievous misconception of the place that Obama occupies. Mr. Blitzer told Senator Cruz that he has to compromise because Obama was re-elected. The misconception is that one group of people (those who voted to keep Obama in office) is more important that another group of people (those who voted to replace Obama with another candidate of their choice.) To Blitzer, the minority is inconsequential. Obama was not issued a “mandate” per se, but should have smelled the coffee by the narrow margin of his victory and the number of GOP nominees for the houses of Congress who were elected. These folks were elected by a majority in their districts and feel they are every bit as important as those who re-elected Obama. Our system of “checks and balances” were not emplaced for show. It exists to prevent – or reverse – what has in fact been happening here of late. Obama has used his executive pen and scathing words to issue executive orders and executive dressing-down of our congressmen and women. To be sure, he is not their parent, nor is he their boss! His position is merely as the coordinator for the government through which the administration of the government is to operate per the rules, regulations and law set down by Congress. It would be very easy for a house of Congress to strip away any authority the president may believe he possesses and place him in the corner to think about his misconduct. Mr. Blitzer is in grave error if he thinks that Congress should not compromise simply because Obama was re-elected. In fact, the congressional make-up remains as it is because the same people re-elected that make-up. That is the bottom line.
We shouldn't compromise if it makes the situation worse. I hope Cruz goes to DC and raises hell the entire time he is there. Too many get to DC and immediately get corrupted. I hope he doesn't. And Blitzer and CNN are oblahmah backers any way. They don't care how much he hurts the country, they are squarely in his corner. All the evil little minions stick together.
