I am more hopeful today than I have been in a long time.

Let’s all do what we can in our own way to support him. I just hope he doesn’t cave. I don’t think he will. If you’ve listened to his father speak, you know that he instilled toughness into his son.

I think too, that Cruz believes he can persuade people thru his rhetoric. Hey, two weeks ago we never would have thought Boehner would have supported this. I think he knows now what he has to do.

The ball is now in the Senate. It’s in Harry Reid’s lap. If Reid tries to strip out the bill then Ted can get up there an filibuster. I hope to hell he has one of those Texas Catheters on, and he talks as long as Strom Thurmond did for 24 hrs and 18 min.

You reminded me of another important point. In addition to writing a note of encouragement to Cruz, I should also write a note to Reid to point out that I do not appreciate his work to make government larger and more intrusive.
