Mr. Cruz goes to Washington!
The republicans did a rolling filibuster in 1993 but the rules may have been changed since (and possibly as a result).
Tell it like is brother!!
I certainly hope he prepared well
#MakeDCListen is trending on twitter now.
We are witnessing the start of Ted's 2016 campaign.
Ted stands on the side of Liberty. He will flush out all the evil statists in both parties.
I loathe RINOs more than I do the RATS. If the evil GOPe were honest, they would switch to the party of their true beliefs -- the RAT party.
That includes Rove, the vile POS that is as destructive as anyone on the left.
Ted Cruz has started his filibuster at 2:40 PM. He’s on the floor now, live on cspan.
If this prevents the cloture vote, then this would just about be the best Christmas present I could have.
Now check this out. Drumroll please...
Mark Levin believes that the purpose of Obama's most recent speaking tour is to soften the ground for him unilaterally lifting the debt ceiling.
Treasonous? Impeachable? You betcha. But who will stop him, besides Cruz and Lee?
Just watched CNN-Obama in the break room.
The CNN newsblondes are smearing Cruz as a “political opportunist trying to make a name for himself, because nobody likes him”.
That’s almost a verbatim quote.
Cruz exposing all the RINOs who want to come home and say they voted against ObamaCare while the vote for cloture and allow Democrats to pass the bill with simple majority.
Better yet - read ObamaCare into the record!
Go, Ted, GO!!
It’s live on cspan 2.
the truly hardcore get catheterized and have a pee tube and bag taped to their leg.
I think Strom Thurmon holds the time record, something like 30 hours, set back in 1955, or something —his filibuster was truly amazing, though a couple of our guys also have put in good performances.
Need good shoes, and I think some kind of stealthy leg-brace inside the pants would be good —not sure if it’s allowed, though.
Give em hell, Mr. Cruz.
usually when the GOPe is a majority the Democrat says “I filibuster” and the GOPe gives up. They never have to actual do any filibustering when the GOPe is running the place.
No more games. No more trying to fool the American people. We need to #MakeDCListen
Ted Cruz 2:57 pm 9/24/13
Go Ted Go...
PING to my #49. The Leftists are already sharpening their stiletto heels.
