Cruz: "Show Me"

Gee.  This applies to a Wisconsin politician or five, even though they're not (currently) running for higher office.

Sayeth Ted the Great:

..."For far too long politicians have said one thing and done another. Everyone of us should ask any candidate that shows up in front of you, 'You say you believe these principles, show me. When have you stood up and fought for them, when have you bled for them, and what have you accomplished?'" he said to cheers.

Cruz, who has battled Obama on healthcare, immigration and gun rights, made the challenge as a way to show off his battle scars, an approach that won approval from the NRA group.

"You know," he said, "I had a former boss who used to say, 'If I'm ever accused of being a Christian, I'd like there to be enough evidence to convict me.'  [Outstanding applause line, BTW]

"The same is true of being a conservative. In a Republican primary every candidate is going to stand up and say, 'I oppose Obamacare.' The question we ought to ask is, 'Great, when have you stood up and fought to stop Obamacare!' And every candidate is going to say they don't support amnesty. Alright, great, 'When have you stood up and fought the president's illegal and unconstitutional executive action?'"...

At last report, RoJo was still chasing a squirrel that Obozo showed him.  Something about the 30-, 50-, and 2,994-year effects of unsustainable government spending and debt.

Good, RoJo.  Good boy.
