100-0? After all that, Cruz voted to move the measure forward?
Am I missing something?
This was NOT the cloture vote Cruz wants to stop!
That will come Friday or Saturday.
(Seems to be a lot of confusion on this...)
Procedural vote, only good for Senators to propagandize in their home states. And Lisa Mascara of the LA Times/Pravda Left Coast proceeds to spew lies disproven again and again.
“lonely filibuster-like campaign”
yesterday an article said a “Powerful group of Senators” were doing it.
SO now its a one-man campaign again.
I have an uncomfortable feeling this whole thing was about maximum TV time for Cruz and a possible Presidential run. From what I'm seeing here, it's working.
LA Times? really??? Even Dr. Drew bashed them and refuses to read their propaganda.
The media is not being honest on this. But then again, if they were honest, they would not be the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, would they?
Not possible. After filibustering well into the night, Ted Cruz, at a MINIMUM, would not have voted to move the debate forward. I call super-BS on this article!!

PEOPLE RELAX. VOTING AGAINST THIS VOTE TO OPEN DEBATE IS A VOTE AGAINST THE CR (posturing).
I’m still trying to grasp how somebody could conceivably call this a GOP plot when the Vote was 100-0?
I can’t wait until the LA Slimes does the right thing and puts their few remaining full time employees on the exchange.
“GOP’s fizzling strategy” — no bias here. /sarcasm
This was not a GOP strategy. There's was just the same ol' same ol'. The hell with the GOP.
These are Tea Partiers!
Cruz 2016! Just wait and see.
...If we're still around.
The party of surrender.
