I trust Cruz like I’ve never trusted any other politician in my life, INCLUDING Reagan. And he’s MY senator, thank God!

I am getting fed up with all the talking heads disparaging Sen Cruz. He seems to be one of the very few who are listening to the majority of the citizens of this country.

The best part is that he appears to be squeaky clean. If there was even a peck of dirt on him, you can bet the Rovians would have used it by now.

Time will tell but it appears that Senator Cruz does in fact follow through on his initial intentions.

You might say he has a very high NO BS rating.

Like damn near 100%.

It is no surprise that the communist agenda democrats and the go-pees are unraveling.

They’re predictable. It’s the jackwagons within the GOP that deserve the intensified scorn.

Did that weasel Ried call the provision to prevent a default “The Pay China First” provision?

That has to be exploited.

I love how even Reid refers to it as “Obamacare”

People will spit the Kenyans name over this, just as they spit Hitlers.

Something I’ve predicted for years

I'm not sure about Rove. But I am sure that the Obama media will manufacture a scandal regarding Cruz if they have to. I have no doubt they are working on a several right now.

It’s early but Cruz/Palin ‘16 is rolling off the tongue pretty easily right now. The only question for me is if he should even try for the GOPe nomination or start the Conservative Party. I’m definitely leaning to the latter but they need to start NOW. It will be too late after Christie or Rubio steal the nomination.

It’s up on hotair.com Allahpundit confirming Cornyn & McConnell will vote against filibuster.

Cruz, on Hannity, just reported that the Friday vote is very important, to try for debate and requiring the 60 votes to do it, as I understood it.

This will be another phase to test the metal of the conservatives fighting with him.

Back to the phones. :)

Great speech—However Cruz has more faith in his fellow Republicans than I do.

I have no doubt that even if Reid allows the 60 vote rule he will find those Republican votes from the low life mother lovers sitting in the Republican Leadership.

I do not trust the RINO’s any farther than I can throw the Wookie.

He grabbed my attention during the Rand Paul filibuster when he spoke about opposing his party’s president (Bush) because it was the right thing to do. He sued on behalf of the state of Texas and won.

That doesn't mean anything. They will simply make something up, true or not. They are nothing but slimey scumbags who could care less about the truth.

Worth watching! Cruz is quite impressive. He speaks to the point in straight talk to decipher the typical Washington double-talk. He has his facts together and throws Reid’s hypocritical words right back to him. In a mere few minutes he distilled this to a clear explanation of his unanimous consent requests. He is calm, collected and deliberate. How refreshing compared to the muddled minds attacking him.

Thank you Texas. If I could trade you a Durbin and Kirk (and I’ll even throw in a Duckworth) I would do it in a heartbeat.

After that trial by mud fire in the Primary Runoff, if there was anything not squeaky clean about Cruz we would be having a Senator DoWorst.

If the Senate is going to amend it we need a Senator to insert an amendment that all federal employees, including Congress and everybody in the regime, be subject to exactly the same requirements as every other American, and all waivers be declared unlawful, as would be appropriate under the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.

Usually after the damage has been done.

Agreed.

I like when he says this.....

People come up to him and say Ted are you really going to say and do what you said, or are you going to be like all the others that promised same, but then went on and did the Washington thing.

I completely butchered Ted`s words, but he says he reminds himself every day of that.

Ted says it so well

I totally agree.

And .. if anybody has a congress person who is bad mouthing Cruz .. how about a phone call to their office and tell them you don’t appreciate it.

Maybe if enough of us complain, just maybe it will begin to show them they’re backing the wrong horse (the elite repubs).

I’m especially upset with Rove .. I may just send him a msg too.

Exactly...the eleventh hour is fast approaching...remember when they passed this beast they caved when it all boiled down to paying the highest bidder....this feels like a re-run...

I have great concern that the Rino’s will once again fold....or even one or the other who is not. They can’t seem to hold the line when it’s right in their hand and the power to do so!

Cornyn IS an embarrassment.

He's nothing but a pantywaisted, vichy Republican in the likes of McConnell, McStain, Corker, Grahamnesty, Flake, etc.

They play tough guys during campaign season (Big, bad Lying John) but they run across the aisle to their dim friends/BIG $$ once the election is over. COWARDS!
