The lies that were told about Benghazi, and the fact that, after a full year, an honest accounting has yet to be made, has caused all conservatives and a (very) few honest liberals to oppugn the Regime’s handling of the matter.

Senator Cruz has been masterful. If we had 99 more like him, we'd have a great country again.

The problem with inferring overall opinion from your Twitter feed is that you probably follow like-minded people. I don't follow any liberals. If I want to hear their drivel, I can tune the tv to any one of several channels, or I can read their crap in the NY Times.

This is a battle for the soul of the Republican party.

Cruz went out of his way to raise Bernie Sanders as a man of Principle.

This bunch, is IMHO going apeshit on their own party.

Get one of these guys at 1600, and the rest in influential positions.

Disappointed to not see Cornyn.

oppugn [uh-pyoon]

oppugn [uh-pyoon]? Past particle and present decibel of opine and I opine [uh-pine] you’re making fun of the second wife who was pugn ugly but had a good job at the saw mill til she fell into the big blade and bent it beyond swedging.

Now there’s a word for all you mill hands....swedging...and hammering a 48 inch blade.

See our discussion on yesterdays thread. And on this.

This is the battle for the heart and soul of this party.

They went thru a round of hosannahs earlier.
Ceuz read from Rand, after Paul stepped in,
Inhoffe (i think) quoted The Elder Cruz.

Cruz, recounted Inhofes extraordinary diligence for his Prayer Breakfast Intro.

xshub’s place of business recently met about their insurance coverage. the organization [on xshub’s say so] is going to continue to fund their current cadillac plan. but he told the assemblage that if it continues to go up next year, that may not be the case. he nearly bit his tongue OFF to avoid adding, that those jack@$$e$ who voted for obama would then feel the consequences of their actions. he said he knew that the insurance rep was aware of his restraint in not adding that. my niece’s fiance is a pharmacist for Walgreens, she was over for dinner last week the day AFTER walgreens announced it was dumping their employees into the exchange. she was not happy about that, but then again they did not vote for him either.

He should have found a soft soap way to say it.

At my former employer, who was a conservative backing organization, that had several buzz phrases.

In these difficult times....

In the current political climate...

In the current climate of the costs of health care....

Whenever I heard on of those phrases, that’s exactly what they were saying.

They were routinely preceded by requests to make your feelings heard on legislation affecting the Financial Services industry.

Imo, over the head of most.

Folks, please excuse me for speaking plainly for a moment.

How long has it been, since we have had a group of politicians speak without the bull$h!t ,

May e they should get a media brand like the Gang of Eight.
