Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today compared critics of his tactics on Obamacare and the spending bill – those who you can’t defund Obamacare by linking the issue to spending bills and the debt limit – to people who said the British couldn’t be defeated in the Revolutionary War, that the union couldn’t be saved during the Civil War, and that the Germans couldn’t be defeated during World War II.
In the 1940s, these critics would have been saying, “You cannot defeat the Germans.”
Really? Just because someone doubts the feasibility of Ted Cruz’s methods they would have allowed the Germans to seize and slaughter half of Europe? This is neither logical nor appropriate.
This kind of rhetoric is not only reprehensible, it gives ammunition to President Obama and other Tea Party critics who seek to portray conservatives as dangerous extremists. Cruz should reel it back in and apologize.
