I was flipping through news channels Sunday morning and happened upon MSNBC. Okay, I didn’t just happen upon it for I usually avoid it like the plague, but Fox was discussing some pop-culture nonsense.

There was a discussion panel with four liberals and one former George HW Bush progressive consultant. He was both progressive and black, so it was okay.

They were discussing Ted Cruz and naturally there was no love in the room. They allowed the “Republican” consultant plenty of time to trash Ted. He (the Republican) said he was more of a Chris Christie Republican. That’s really all you need to know about him.

He described Ted Cruz as being a closed tent conservative. How Cruz harkened back to a different era in America and apparently that is never a good thing – to look back, unless of course you’re looking back to FDR or LBJ. The consultant wants the party to be constantly looking “forward”. That’s what good progressives do, don’t you know.

One of the libs chimed in saying that Cruz is satisfied to “just say no” to every initiative. That he is only interested in shrinking government. Oh the horror!

Let’s think about this. Why is it so misguided for Ted Cruz to “just say no” to government expansion? Why is it wrong for us, the citizens, to “just say no” – we won’t allow you (the government) to do that?

After all, that’s what the government has been telling its citizens year after year for more than a century. Picking winners and losers, restricting our behavior, just saying no!
