    NASTY WATER carriers

    NASTY WATER carriers

    Ted Cruz is making all the right enemies, and they are out for him often and early.

    For Marco Rubio the meme is WATER, for Cruz it’s NASTY.

    The title of this NY Times article originally was Ted Cruz Runs Counter To The Senate’s Courtly Ways, but the title was changed to Texas Senator Goes on Attack and Raises Bipartisan Hackles at some point after publication (the original url continues).

    Another NY Times Op-Ed is more blunt, The G.O.P.’s Nasty Newcomer.

    It’s all part of the killing the baby in the cradle strategy at which The NY Times and other NASTY WATER carriers for the Democratic Party are so good.

    I’ll repeat what I said about the Republicans who piled on Sarah Palin along with the nutroots and MSM:

    Zero tolerance is my position on cheap shots at Sarah Palin from the right.

    I don’t expect people to like her or support her, but piling on is unforgivable to me because it just feeds the mainstream media, entertainment industry, and left-blogosphere beasts who will turn with a fury on whichever candidate Republicans nominate.

    That’s how I’ll treat any Republican who piles on Rubio or Cruz or any of our other rising stars.

    Ted Cruz is my senator and he’s A+ as far as I’m concerned.

    The only people attacking him are progressive liberal democrats and of course Republican RINOs like McCain and Lindsey Graham.

    Boo hoo hoo… Keep it up Ted, I like most Texans are in your corner!

    […] Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has up a terrific post on “NASTY WATER carriers.” …Ted Cruz, my new favorite […]

    […] William Jacobson on Le*gal In*sur*rec*tion noted that The New York Times doesn’t like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). No, they’d much rather have a go-along-to-get-along Republican, rather than one who actually supports the things on which he campaigned for office in the first place. […]
