"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
 
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams
 
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

That a Texan would win a Texas GOP straw poll is no surprise. The question is whether a Texan can win similar GOP polls in other states.

Between Benghazi, Bergdahl and a whole host of scandals, Hillary Clinton is about as useful as an old, tattered, hole-ridden shoe and just about as attractive to Americans.

Scandals???? Scandals???? Scandals don't damage Liberals, DemocRATS and Progressives. Look how many scandals Barack Obama has been embroiled in and he got two terms. The 47% of our population that is Liberal don't give a freakin' thing about scandals; as long as they get their "bennies" from the govmint.

They don’t matter. They vote liberal. Let them redefine it how they wish. As long as we elect someone intent on doing something to deal with it.

Sure.

But Governor Perry, and Rand Paul finished so far back that I think it means a little bit more than that.

Now if their fan clubs would get the message we’d all be better for it. If they fight for those losers again it just makes it a bigger problem to get our act on one page.

Perry's never been all that popular among Texas Republicans, and Ron Paul has not only never run for statewide office, he's viewed as being a little fringey, which probably hurt his son's numbers.

Rand Paul’s wheels are coming off his image, as he continues to move left.

Ted Cruz mopped the floor with PujabJindal’s arse in the straw poll after the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. That was May, 31st.

Your answer is a resounding yes!

Cruz is shaky on illegal immigration. He’s not Rubio, but he’s not speaking out about it like he does with other issues.

Well he can’t be that bad since the vote was all about illegals and he aced it.

Nah, but if he stays the course I’m happy with TC being the next TC.

Ted’s a superstar that comes rarely. He will be better than Reagan if that is possible.

Actually Ted Cruz doesn’t speak out much except about what others in the Senate are cooking up.

But he has said plenty about legal and illegal immigration in the legislation he has offered and which was voted down. And all of that legislation has been discussed fully right here.

The bottom line for Ted on immigration is we need the cream of the cream of talent working here in the USA to maintain our competitive edge and for those illegally here, he is for a system that registers them with no hope of any amnesty, in effect rounding them up and deporting them or have them self deport. He is also for strong border protection including militarization of the border.

Everything he says about border security and immigration is crystal clear, conservative and smart as it gets.

He[s already won the Values Voter straw poll as well as the republican Leadership poll. This is number three.

He, like Ronald Reagan, is only ‘unelectable’ iIF you allow the GOPe to convince of the same.

Pick early folks. We will need to go to battle full tilt soon enough

plus this is the third straw poll Ted has won. The belly aching about ‘unelectability’ sounds a lot like what was said about Reagan

bleeech... and just who do you think will do a better job?

In January his exact words were “Cruz said he recognizes that the current immigration system is broken. He said, however, Republicans should wait until next year, contending it would make more sense “so that we are negotiating a responsible solution with a Republican Senate majority rather than with Chuck Schumer.”

“Anyone pushing an amnesty bill right now should go ahead and put a ‘Harry Reid for Majority Leader’ bumper sticker on their car, because that will be the likely effect if Republicans refuse to listen to the American people and foolishly change the subject from Obamacare to amnesty,” he said.”

That is hardly shaky. Our immigration system is broken. We shouldn’t do anything until we have a majority in the Senate. That hardly constitutes being ‘shaky’.

If you act that way it will come to pass. If on the other hand you act as if not only can he but he will be then you will end up with hime as President. Ronald Reagan fit your description of Cruz ... just ask all the GOPe of that day

precisely....The panty waists around here bemoaning Cruz (for various reasons...including his birth status) are the same folks who said Reagan was a two bit actor and a cowboy and could NEVER win the Presidency....then they said he would blow us all up

Ron Paul supporting Dewhurst probably won’t help Rand.

Rand’s amnesty peddling probably hurt him in Texas and many other states. Huckabee could win Iowa, Cruz wins Texas and Jeb wins Florida. Now he has to win to other states where amnesty is not popular anyway. Amnesty didn’t work for Gingrich.

Another thing that happened is the Todd Staples-Jerry Patterson Texas Amnesty solution is gone.
