Cruz and Couric; you’ll love this one!

We thought Katie Couric was ridiculous in her Fiorina interview on Global Climate Change?  I hate to be (too) unkind, but wait till you hear  “What about the POPE?”   You’ll laugh out loud, I assure you!  Oh, gad, let’s discuss this…..

He really tries to enlighten her to the side which is aware that we need to keep the planet clean but not strip our economy for science that’s been tweaked by the politicization of NASA and others…yes, NASA, Cruz holds nothing back.

Couric is hilarious…you’ll enjoy it!   I almost feel sorry for her because she seems so desperate to nail Cruz and he just doesn’t ‘go there.’  You’ll enjoy his points;  they’re things you can use with your friends on this subject, too.

So, take a look and tell me what you think!

    It seems Couric is becoming less intelligent as the years progress. Yahoo news. She has come a long way.

  2. bocopro says:

    Couric wants SO badly to be relevant, and she’s SO in the tank for the leftistas that she’s like a little kid who still believes in the Easter Bunny. She put on her Vasco de Gotcha costume and tried to pin down a politician. Luck widdat! And she picked one whose mind works at warp while hers is stuck on impulse power.

    Gotta give her credit for determination, but Cruz long ago mastered the fine art of duck and dodge and circumlocute and smother with syllables. He comes across as amusingly condescending to an airhead and she looks like a Fokker-Wulf trying to bring down a modern cruise missile.

    I would much prefer he simply answer the question more directly, as in “I wouldn’t go to the Pope for advice on science any more than I would go to Putin for advice on religion.” But, of course that’s why we have Trump — to say things that way — isn’t it?

  3. silverfiddle says:

    I echo bocopro’s comments. Cruz is incredibly intelligent and well-spoken and I think he did a great job, but he did need to simply answer her question. But I don’t want to take anything away from him. He handles himself very well, and it is apparent he is not simply regurgitating canned talking points.

  4. Kid says:

    Agree all.
    I think Cruz did get across that based on the scientific method, the theory is invalid as it has been stated and forecast. If you just say global warming is BS, then you lose an entire voting block of morons young and old. Katie should change her name to Katie Climate-Change because that’s all she talked about with the ones she’s interviewed so far.

  5. John M. Berger says:

    Couric, among other things, is the quintessential rich liberal who appears totally oblivious to reality while clinging to what amounts to nothing more than political dogma. Where else, in the World, could such an air-head draw a, reported, $10,000,000 salary while eschewing the basis of the economy that enables it after contributing nothing of substance to achieve it? I could go on and on…………………………………………..

  6. lisa says:

    I think he did answer the question in a round about way. The problem is if he had answered her directly what the next day’s headline would be even though yahoo and Couric are irrelevant,his reply would have made the MSM.
    I can’t stand the way the lefties interview republicans,clearly not interested in what they say,but in typical fashion trying to marginalize them .
    I was watching Martha Raddatz interview a few of the republican candidates on Stephanopolous yesterday and she was just so obviously on the attack.

  7. geeez2014 says:

    bunkerville, I think she probably hates doing Yahoo, you’re right…what a demotion, except for her huge salary. She’s such a lib, and always has been, but so is Yahoo, and I think they expect the barracuda approach only for Republicans by her….

    bocopro….Cruz stalled for a while because what she was trying SO HARD to get was “I don’t believe there’s any problem with global climate change” and anybody knows the Left translates that to mean Republicans don’t give a fig about clean air, clean water, what happens to the earth, etc., right? That’s just a fact. he finally DID get to it though, in extremely well chosen words, as you suggest!

    SF…no talking points, that’s for sure; he simply didn’t want to give Couric ammunition …

    Kid, exactly right “If you just say global warming is BS, then you lose an entire voting block of morons young and old.” As I said in the above comment, he had to avoid being direct…plus, I think he also wanted to get in as many “Whys” (that he didn’t buy into the global climate thing) before he finally did say his opinion on it.

    lisa, I couldn’t agree with you more. What’s very interesting is some of the leftwing television lately….On CNN, Chris Cuomo’s had a fabulous Black GOP woman on, I didn’t get her name…they were talking about Trump’s “kick all the illegal outs” strategy, which she seemed FOR, and Cuomo wasn’t saying a thing about being totally opposed to it! And he kept harping on E VERIFY…for employers…to which she agreed….he was 100% behind E Verify and that surprised me. I’ve seen a few liberals warming up to some pretty good stuff and I’m hoping the polls are waking them up……..maybe even giving them “permission” to say how they REALLY feel under that highly paid facade of having to represent the Leftwing nuttiness…….I can dream!

  8. geeez2014 says:

    Lisa..Martha Raddatz is bright but SO ideological it’s uncomfortable to watch her…sad, isn’t it.

  9. geeez2014 says:

    Don’t you all think it’s funny that President Harding is getting such news lately about having had a love child? WHO CARES? He’s been dead for YEARS! Of course, he’s a Republican, but for the news to harp on this? Like nothing else is more important?

  10. Mal says:

    Well, the best advice I can give Cruz is before matching wits with someone, be sure your opponent is well armed. She wasn’t and the outcome was predictable! Good job, Ted!

  11. John M. Berger says:

    @Mal,
    “before matching wits with someone, be sure your opponent is well armed”
    Yes, but in this case there was no MATCH to begin with.

  12. Lisa says:

    Good grief Z like what possible relevance does Harding’s Love Child have on today’s politics.I can bet many men did back then. Beside like you said,who cares? My God they are pulling out all the stops aren’t they?

  13. geeez2014 says:

    Mal and JMB: love that expression…..and you’re both right….”good job, Ted!”

    Lisa..imagine? he’s said to have been the worst president ever….who really cares?
    Wait till you see my post tomorrow on a presidential candidate…along these lines 🙂
    i’m not a person who rejoices in gossip on this level, but if the shoe fits……….and people are not hearing the truth at a pertinent time in history, than I’ll tell ’em!! HA!

  14. geeez2014 says:

    OFF TOPIC:
    Hillary’s joking about SNAPCHAT…how clever she is for mastering that and how wonderful that messages disappear “all by themselves”….big laughter after having said that….eyebrows up and eyes enlarging (the hillary’s lying test)…

    Didn’t you all think that was beneath contempt? As if her snapchat is as important as State Department messages?

  15. Baysider says:

    Go Ted! Brilliant stroke in one sentence to divide the Democrats from their union base. And brilliant answer on the pope. And the reference on global cooling. Some of the hyperventilators today don’t even remember that scare.

    It’s so hard to talk to people when their head is in a sack, but he does well. Would be interesting to hear whole interview. I don’t know what the ground rules were, but at some point he’s just got to ask, “Ms. Couric, do you have any important questions to ask or are you going to sit there and let me make a fool of you all day?”

  16. bocopro says:

    Hillary operates on a different wavelength from that used by normal folks. She is the embodiment of the double standard, the eternal struggle between contrasting sets of behavior rules, the poster child for Do-As-I-Say/Not-As-I-do.

    She genuinely believes that Petraeus was guilty of recklessness in his handling of classified material because he was a military man and she’s innocent because she’s a . . . a . . . uh, well, whatever she is; I’m not sure we have le mot jus for her — I’ve always been fond of calling her a penis-envying gringewort.

    She is arrogant, impudent, insolent, fraudulent, malevolent, repugnant, self-indulgent, and in view of the reality of her thoroughly rotten core, very likely flatulent. I’d be very careful of handling open flame near her while she’s speaking because I’m not entirely confident of exactly what species she is a member of, and the same gases could possibly escape from either end of her alimentary canal.

  17. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider;…so true and well put! “Ms. Couric, do you have any important questions to ask or are you going to sit there and let me make a fool of you all day?”
    and I’d have loved to have heard the rest of that interview, too…almost seemed like it was getting better! Imagine her “What about the POPE!?” as if the Pope is the be-all and end-all of weather knowledge?? And, by the way, I don’t know that I’ve heard her ever consult Catholicism for any answers before, have you? 🙂

    bocopro; yes, but how do you REALLY FEEL ABOUT HILLARY ? HAA~
    Great comment….yes to it all!

  18. Sparky says:

    Did you hear me yelling at the video for Katie Couric to shut up!? She kept trying to put words in Cruz’s mouth. The Far Left won’t listen to reason. Even when the facts are right in front of their noses. They do not want to believe that all this weather is normal. It’s all about power and control from the Far Left. And “Climate Change” is a pagan religion. It’s ancient, in fact, and has been practiced by the unbelieving for centuries.
    There’s a lot of good candidates running for Republican this time. I’ve decided that I’m voting for Ted Cruz. Rand Paul is my first choice but I don’t think he’s electable. There’s too many media outlets that vilify him at every opportunity.

  19. John M. Berger says:

    bocopro,
    A+, my friend!

  20. geeez2014 says:

    “what about THE POPE!?’ “What about THE POPE?” Picture Katie Couric ever saying that to anybody but a Republican…
    she SO BADLY wanted Cruz to TURN ON THE POPE, this apparently good Baptist boy!
    Honestly…I SERIOUSLY couldn’t believe my ears….

  21. Mal says:

    Hey Bocopro! Why don’t you tell us what you REALLY think of Hillary? 🙂

  22. John M. Berger says:

    Hey Mal,
    Yeah, I’d like him to take off the gloves!

  23. bocopro says:

    Long having believed that she is an unindicted felon who should’ve been jailed years ago, I’ve produced reams of stuff on Hillary. The problem is that most of it is much too lengthy for a comment in a blog thread.

    And since I don’t do phasebok or any of that stuff, I have no place to post lengthy stuff. Denny (grouchyoldcripple.com) often publishes my rants, and I used to drop trailmarkers frequently at Sondra’s place, but I quit going there a coupla years ago.

    I’ll see if I can put one of my bombs in a comment box here.

  24. bocopro says:

    Wrote this one back during her earlier PotUS run. Still works:

    The Shrillary Summary : A Bitch In Snippets

    The North American Public Bovine – An ex-president’s bitter half
    Highlights of a passage from complete obscurity to total impurity in a single lifetime

    She was born one mornin when the sun didn’t shine.
    Picked up her shovel and went off to the mine.
    Loaded sixteen tons of super-grade fraud
    And the doctors all said, “Oh, help us, Lawd!”

    I say sixteen tons, and whaddya get,
    A whiney-ass lawyer with an ethics debt.
    St. Peter don’t ya call her ‘cause she cain’t go,
    She lost her soul in a moral escrow.

    The Early Years – Planned Parenthood Poster Child

    After her delivery, the cord clamped and cut, she was handed to a nurse, who gasped for breath and cried immediately. The attending physician, upon seeing the baby, viciously slapped the mother.

    As a maturing infant she had skin which felt moist, like a worm’s, but was dry, like a serpent’s. A rectal exam revealed a slightly larger than normal forehead and a superego already in metastasis. Visual inspection of the genitalia was inconclusive, exhibiting characteristics of abundant testosterone with diluted estrogen.

    As a child, she was in a state of normal good health until her balloon ran out of hot air and crashed. While recuperating, she routinely had gluttony for breakfast and anorexia for lunch. She had occasional bouts with constipation during adolescence, which disappeared after several years had passed and she married her husband, who had frequent abnormal lover function.

    Before her marriage, she lived at home with her mother, father, brother, and a pet toad, who is enrolled in therapy three times a week. Her record shows that she claims to suffer from occasional, constant, infrequent headaches. Being from Illinois, she had only one child.

    Her pre-nuptial physical showed both breasts were equally left and reactive to lights, microphones, and pictures of long-dead presidents. At that time, examination of her genitalia was completely negative except for the right foot. She was scheduled for a bowel resection at one time, but took a job as a lawyer instead. Later, while in the emergency room, she was examined, X-rated, and surgically freed of her annoying character flaws of ethics and integrity.

    Womanly Jock Itch Years

    Bleeding began in her rectal area shortly after her husband was nominated for the presidency and continued all the way to New York. As a patient, she was typically alert and unresponsive. When she fainted, her eyes rolled around the room and tiny little bells tinkled as insects emerged from her ears. The rectal condition was later diagnosed as a routine case of politician mouth and hummingbird ass.

    An avid proponent of women’s rights, she has written numerous unread articles and is preparing a music video with the title piece “I Am Woman, Watch Me Sue.” Recently she has been overheard chanting something indistinguishable that her daughter believes is “I have finally become the man I should have married.”

    The militant wing of NOW awarded her a black belt in whining and has submitted a proposal to have her likeness carved on Mt. Trashmore. She is looking forward to winning the Presidency so that she can have a shuffleboard court installed where she can put her tiara to good use. Amongst the figures she is considering for her cabinet are Barbra Streisand as National Security Advisor, Whoopi Goldberg as Secretary of State, Rosie O’Donnell as Secretary of Defense, and Susan Sarandon as Attorney General.

    One of the country’s “top 100” lawyers, she intends to court the felon community as supporters by restoring their right to vote. Her belief is that such a campaign will ensure that she could never alienate the African-American community no matter how far she sticks her foot in her mouth in the act of trying to impress them.

    In preparation for the presidential candidate debate cycle, she is re-reading notes and messages she wrote to herself after a number of people told her to go fax herself.

    Early Onset Alzheimer’s – Delusions of Adequacy

    Her new campaign slogan, upon which she has worked countless hours with Senator John Kerry, is ready for release. Her press secretary announced today that it reflects her true inner self and should once and for all satisfy the voters on where she stands in the liberal/conservative spectrum: “I am not who you think I am. I am not who I think I am. I am who I think you think I am.”

    And for questions about her involvement in various rumors and scandals, such as Whitewater and Travelgate, during her husband’s terms in office, she has a firm and definitive response: “I have forgotten all about my amnesia and am not here to talk about the past. Whatever I may have done wrong during my husband’s tenure in office was not my fault, since we had never been President before and I was under great stress. And everything I have done wrong since is a result of having faulty information provided by the Bush administration.”

    As for the unflattering photographs often circulated by her political enemies that make her look older than she really is or bored with what is going on, she has a snappy response: “Hey, I’m not exactly a 30-something any more. And besides, I suffered from PMS for at least twice that long.”

    At a recent fund raiser sponsored by the Barbra Streisand Society for the Preservation of Offensive Language, Hillary reaffirmed her belief that “something needs to be done about that Israelish-Palestonian thingy.” She also had harsh words for Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, saying, “Don didn’t have any kind of plan for the things none of us could foresee back when it looked like a good idea to get rid of Sodom Holstein. In fact, his plan wasn’t any better than the one that John Kerry didn’t have.”

    Spotted lurking at a Harry Reid “I’ll-amend-my-tax-returns-and-my-ethics-disclosure-statements-and-that’ll-be-the-end-of-it” press conference a few days ago, Hillary was asked what she thought were the odds of Democrats taking control of both houses of Congress. Her response, “Well, did you know that Lou Gehrig died from Lou Gehrig’s disease? What are the odds of that happening?”

    Another reporter asked her what movie she would like to see on the flight to Chicago to meet with party officials. “Gee,” she said. “I hope it’s Showgirls, Part II, because, you know, the first one left so many important questions unanswered.

    And finally, when pressed on some of the nicknames people refer to her by, she defined the term witch as “An ugly, repulsive old woman, probably in league with the Devil for nefarious purposes. Or is that a beautiful, attractive young woman often in league with the Devil for nefarious purposes? Or is that ‘bitch’? I forget. My amnesia, you know.”

  25. Bob says:

    Great video, Z. First of all, you don’t get into a debate with Cruz because he is smarter than anybody else. Secondly, he loves to get into the mud and fight it out. He certainly could handle Hillary.

  26. Kid says:

    bocopro. Good stuff. To your question of what species it is.. It is a Hildebeast, made up of 50% satan’s butthole, 50% joe stalin and 50% pol pot, and 50% raw sewage. If you’ve seen the mid-section lately, you know it is 200% of something.

  27. Mal says:

    (sorry I asked!) 🙂

  28. geeez2014 says:

    Mal, you REALLY cracked me up with that one!

    Kid, I knew you’d love bocopro’s diatribe! Good one, isn’t it… She does have a midsection, poor woman!

    BOB…great performance on Cruz’s part; no doubt about that! He could certainly handle Couric, anyway. And yes, he’d annihilate Hillary.

    Bocopro….WOZIR….good piece there….a tad bit colorful for GeeeeZ but I agree with it all…I am NO FAN of Hillary’s….

    Check out her eyes, folks; Remember we used to say “How can you tell Obama’s lying?” “His lips are moving.”
    Check out Hillary’s EYES when she’s talking/lying…they get buggy and her brows go up and it’s a dead giveaway……….she’s true EVIL. When she made that comment about Snapchat, I knew she was further beneath contempt than even I thought she was……..Boy, is she trying HARD to dismiss this REAL MESS she’s put herself in.
    The good thing is that I’m sensing even Democrats are ticked off at her.

  29. Kid says:

    Z, I purely believe the beast is pathological. I don’t believe she could tell the truth if it was to her advantage, I really don’t.

  30. Bob says:

    Kid: In the South we say that, “She would tell a lie when the truth would sound better”.

  31. Kid says:

    Bob, Good One. I’m a fan of fewer words and I just emailed that one to myself to commit to memory

  32. Baysider says:

    “I don’t know that I’ve heard her [Couric] ever consult Catholicism for any answers before, have you?” Not so’s I recall. Especially not when abortion was on the table.

    And bocopro, “le mot jus for her” is ABOVE THE LAW.

  33. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider….imagine Couric consulting ANYTHING Christian on ANY question? 🙂 Yes, especially not abortion…. what hypocrisy.
    Le mot juste….ABOVE THE LAW on EVERYTHING….and SO below the law “du monde reel”

  34. Baysider says:

    Re: Hillary and server. Ramirez is a MUST SEE today – http://news.investors.com/ibdeditorials.aspx
    Don’t miss the logo on her shorts.

  35. John M. Berger says:

    bocopro rules today; as far as the “PIG” goes and all else. BRAVO ZULU Sir!

  36. geeez2014 says:

    Thanks, Baysider….excellent cartoon.

  37. jerrydablade says:

    I’m back, Z! Loved this Cruz interview. He nails it every time. Of course, anyone looks brilliant next to Katie Couric. It is very nerve wracking watching her with her head down reading her talking points. She isn’t even a good hack. I don’t even like her but still hate to see someone embarrass themselves this way. BTW, just got back from Alaska and the Hubbard Glacier was on our agenda. Apparently, this glacier refuses to obey the socialist climate nazis, and like my waistline during the cruise, continues to grow and expand. I just wish this stop would have been before our stop at Juneau’s Mendenhall Glacier. This glacier is receding, and the good little park employees at this venue were all too happy to blame human activity in there little 10 minute ‘educational’ movie and live museum speeches. The glacier was awesome, but I had to walk out of there little indoctrination. So based on my personal glacier study of two, one is receding and one is growing. We’re good.

  38. Baysider says:

    Right, Jerry! The ice at the south pole they talk about receding had an active volcano or some sort of heated water erupt. Oops.

  39. geeez2014 says:

    Jerry, that made me HOWL with laughter…yes “we’re good”…You are TOPS!

    BAYSIDER, you need to read Jerry’s blog from time to time if you haven’t…always SO clever and VERY funny!!
