Ted Cruz Goes On Talk Show: Spouts Bullshit

Yeah, I know. Quel surpris,eh?

The bullshit is found to be false in today's CSM, which likely is not read by anyone who would consider voting for him. I was going to put the link to this story up anyway, but since Senator Green Eggs and Smarm volunteered to accompany it, what the hey.

Bostonians still digging out from a record snow season may scoff at the news, but global temperatures for December through February were the warmest on record – which is saying something, since that goes back 135 years.

In fact, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s report this week, global temperatures for the period could have been even higher but for cooler-than-average numbers across eastern North America (the United States and Canada).

And of course, Cruz does mention the cold in New Hampshire, where he recently visited and successfully fear-mongered a 3 year old. And while we're on the subject of Texas pols with double digit IQ's, this too, from the paper of record here at Hometown:

Texas may soon allow people to carry concealed weapons on college campuses, thanks to a new bill that was given preliminary approval by the state Senate on Wednesday.

The “campus carry” bill was approved by a 20 to 11 vote along party lines. The Senate is expected to hold a final vote on Thursday, after which the bill will go to the GOP-controlled state House of Representatives. 

While gun-rights advocates and Republican senators support the bill, many student groups and school officials do not.

What do those students and school officials know? Fuckin' libs! Here's one now. 

One of the most vocal opponents of the bill is retired Adm. William McRaven, the architect of the raid to kill Osama bin Laden, and the University of Texas’ chancellor.

"There is great concern that the presence of handguns, even if limited to licensed individuals age 21 or older, will lead to an increase in both accidental shootings and self-inflicted wounds," he wrote in a letter to lawmakers.

And today in Democrats not acting like Republicans comes this bit of news. Try as you read the article to imagine John McCain or Willard Romney taking similar action.

President Obama signed an executive order Thursday to rein in heat-trapping emissions from a major polluter: the federal government.

Hamstrung by a GOP-controlled Congress, Mr. Obama’s order is the latest in a series of executive actions to address climate change. Environment and climate policy have emerged as centerpieces in Obama’s second term – from his plan to cut US power plant emissions 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, to last fall’s bilateral climate accord with China.

Truly, as Faux Green candidate Matt Funiciello will tell you, Democrats and Republicans are the same.

Good Sweet Jesus, please go watch this video (hat tip Chas Pierce. The fun starts at 17;55. I hadn't heard about Obama nuking Charleston and Santorum fails to address that.
