Ted Cruz thinks that defeat is victory; or at least, he thinks that being ahead during a contest means more than who actually wins or loses at the end of a contest: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/10/16/cruz-it-was-a-remarkable-victory-until-senate-republicans-caved-on-the-shutdown/ From the article:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday blasted members of his own party after he said that they wasted a “remarkable victory” by making a deal with Democrats to re-open the government and avert a default on U.S. debt by raising the nation’s credit limit
Of course, Teapublicans did not win a victory at the end of the recent shutdown/default debacle. At the end, they were forced to “surrender”, in the words of Speaker Bo
ehner. Most of us see a surrender as a, well, defeat. But not Teddy Boi Cruz. In his world:
- Cleveland won a remarkable victory last week, because they led at the half. (Of course, Detroit won the game later)
- Rome won a remarkable victory over Rebbe Yeshua bar Joseph when they crucified him. (Of course, the Christians are still around, and the Roman empire is long gone).
- England won a remarkable victory over the rebellious American colonies…you get the idea.
Clearly, Teddy Boi hasn’t a clue about the English language. Buy the fool a dictionary, someone, PLEASE.
