I hate to say it but I have become so cynical about politicians that I believe Cruz knew the Senate would vote as it did. I think filibuster may have been political theater on his part. Sorry!
I'm sure he knew what his chances were, if that's what you mean. Look who runs the senate! Dingy Harry Reid, Dick "Turban" Durban, Weasel McConnell, Juan McStain, Lindseed Grahamnesty, etc...
Well insofar as “all the world’s a stage” and the proceedings of Congress should be out in the public domain for consumption of the citizenry, I suppose you could call what Cruz did “theater.”
Then again, people do enjoy all different sorts of theater —Musical, Kabuki, Classical— the problem is now that we have a literal Greek tragedy taking place, and we’re hard pressed to find public servants who merit the title and stand up for how the country was founded. I hope Cruz is one of these individuals, not just another “player”
Sorry you feel like that. O’ Reilly and Krauthammer said the same thing BEFORE Cruz spoke.
I heard him speak. I went to sleep aroud 9 or so then got up again around 12 mindnight and stayed up the rest of the time. I’ve never been so energized about the political scenery than that morning.
Jimmy Carter woke us all up. I think people in this country need to experience the pure depth of what we’ve become, then we’ll throw the bums out.
I look to Cruz to be the real deal. We lost this battle, but there’s more to do, and the real fight is in the House.
