Republican Sen. Ted Cruz received an eight-minute standing ovation upon his return to Texas this past weekend, despite an extended, hostile campaign from Democrats and the mainstream media to portray him as a dangerous extremist.

“After two months in Washington, it’s great to be back in America,” Cruz said Saturday to approximately 750 people at an appearance in a San Antonio hotel ballroom, enjoying an eight-minute standing ovation for his dogged efforts to defund or delay Obamacare in the recent continuing-resolution budget fight.

Cruz also criticized members of his own Senate caucus for ”failing to stand with House Republicans against the train wreck that is Obamacare.”

Loved Cruz’s response about how he isn’t in the Senate to please the Party bosses. Of course, that’s the biggest thing that ticks them off so much — how dare he!?!

Of course the Pope wasn’t too pleased when Martin Luther nailed his Ninety Five Theses to the door, either...

You’ll see how KY people have some kind of bizarre loyalty to McC. No one can really explain it, other than lack of knowledge of voters.

And the main stream media propagandist have declared the Tea Party has been dealt a fatal blow.
They declared that people like Ted Cruz have lost and the Tea Party is going to lose big time next year.

Sorry Liberals, Democrats, Main Stream Media...... this is just half time and the Tea Party is gearing up for the 2nd half.

The media doesn’t understand that the tea party is not an actual political party but really a state of mind.

In fact the term tea party was simply a good way to identify and sum up the common thinking that MILLIONS of people share.
