Ted Cruz Signed Up For Obamacare … And Got MSM Love In SC?

WHAT THE WHAT?

|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Senator Ted Cruz signed up for health insurance through president Barack Obama‘s socialized medicine monstrosity this week. In fact the first announced 2016 presidential candidate – who made his biggest splash on the national stage filibustering the law – was welcomed to the program by none other than the Obama administration itself.

“What (Cruz) will find is the same thing that millions of Americans across the country have found, which is that there are good, quality, affordable health care plans that are available because of the Affordable Care Act,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) also pounced, encouraging “others to follow presidential candidate Ted Cruz to www.healthcare.gov and get covered.”

So … is Cruz being a hypocrite?  That’s certainly up for debate …

Or at least it should be …

It wasn’t, though, if you picked up a copy of this afternoon’s editions of The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier – which featured a “news report” from political scribe Schuyler Kropf that might as well have been written by Cruz’s campaign.

“S.C. Tea Partiers don’t have a problem with Cruz on Obamacare,” Kropf’s headline blared, before launching into a nauseatingly one-sided take on Cruz’s decision.

Liberal bias?

Not in this MSM story …

Kropf quoted Tea Partiers and political scientists who offered all sorts of reasons why Cruz’s move was “admirable,” “helpful,” and “smart.”

Say huh? 

Jeez …

Look, we like Cruz.  He’s one of the only candidates running as a “Republican” this cycle who’s actually worth a damn.  Not only that, we’ve written extensively in support of his anti-Obamacare efforts.  We’ve also touted his viability as a legitimate “First in the South” contender.

But this story in the Post and Courier?  It’s a joke …

Cruz’s decision – whatever its motivation – will hurt him.  And if you don’t believe us, wait for one of his rival campaigns (or more likely one of the million-and-one political action committees popping up all over the country) to cut a thirty-second advertisement showing you why.
