"FOUR LEGS GOOD, TWO LEGS BETTER"

Remember when we thought that Ted Cruz guy, for all his crazy talk, had a fresh, modern approach to conservatism? Remember when we believed he represented a serious break with GOP orthodoxy?

Hey,whatever happened to that guy?
Sen. Ted Cruz called for the resignation of Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday afternoon, criticizing Kerry for reportedly telling world leaders that he fears Israel could become an "apartheid state."

The secretary said in a closed door meeting last week that Israel might transform into an "apartheid state" without a two-state solution to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine, according to the Daily Beast. The Texas GOP senator said he read Kerry's comments with "great sadness" ...
Was it really only a year or so ago that we were saying things like this?
But after they relentlessly attacked liberals for their alleged lack of patriotism, neocons must now deal with a conservative movement increasingly led by isolationist liberal haters Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) -- leaders who don't particularly care about Israel, only about the destruction of liberalism.
Ahhh, memories....

I always thought that when the time came to pound the pro-Israel war drums, Paul and Cruz would jump to the front of the drum-circle - if only to grandstand.

You can't be a pacifist, and be a major Republican anymore.
