Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) lost his battle against the new health-care law but he already has a new target in sight: the Federal Communications Commission. The tea party member late Wednesday blocked the confirmation of Tom Wheeler as chairman of the FCC, saying he wanted greater assurance from President Obamas nominee that the agency wouldnt require more funding disclosures for political TV ads. Cruz has said that such free speech should be protected. When asked about the issue in a June confirmation hearing, Wheeler demurred, saying he would study the issue.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That darn trouble maker!!
Lol, putting the fun in dysfunctional!
So he’s doing exactly what the GOP should be doing.
It’s time to stop “getting along” with fascists.
No compromise at all on anything. Fight every single issue to the bitter end, regardless of the odds.
We need to turn the government bureaucrat’s ability to accomplish anything into frozen sludge.
That's what I elected him to do. Go Cruz!
I like that. It makes me, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY.
He hasn’t even slowed.
KEEP ON TRUCKIN’, TED!
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Exactly. Go Ted! You da man! If Obozo and his clowns are going to turn the economy and national debt into a circus, we might as well have some fun doing it.
And the predictable, knee jerk reaction from the left will be “Cruz is a terrorist/wife abuser/hostage taker/racist/homophobe.”
CRUZ for PRESIDENT
“.....Cruz is making the GOP the ‘fun’ Party... :) “
Yep... he sure is. I am so glad that we have him.
I wish they’d clone him X 50 just to see him drive the and 0 crazy.
Doing it for the Country, not for the power trip like my Senator McShamnesty.
But those Small things add up fast.
This is exactly what we should be doing!

Amen. Who wouldn’t rather participate in a good fight, rather than have your nose rubbed in it every day?
Yay! Go Sen. Cruz. Thank you for representing We the People. We are looking for support to send to you in Congress. God Bless You.
If Ted Cruz does not give a crap of what Obama, the Democrats, the MSM think and only cares what the people who voted him in and the rest of us think, then ? I am good with that..... as it should be.
RUN CRUZ RUN ! FIGHT CRUZ FIGHT ! RIGHT ON RIGHT ON RIGHT ON BROTHA !
He knows how to stay in the papers.
It’s more than stop being nice and “ Getting along “ with fascist, it’s more like putting them in their place and put the genie back in the bottle.
Hey anyone can dream, how about Tom Delay as the new house speaker ? and Ted Cruz as the Senate majority leader....
Yeah, that does remind me of a few people.
A very few.
Good. The FCC has become pathetic, and this dope will make it even woese.
Davey Crockett was a feather-headed loon.
He was the first Obamaite to serve in congress, and was thrown out of office for trying to make gifts of the taxpayers’ money.
‘Bout time a GOP BLOCKED something!!!!
What kind of chaos would a successful conservative party with Cruz in it create in Congress with the plans of the Marxists?
Someday I hope the rotten GOP goes the way of the Dinosaur and we get a better party to fight the Dems.
That’s a legal dream, right?
I Cruz with Ted.
OOOO Bedtime is nearing for me. Thank you for giving me that image. That is one I would strongly support. Now I can lay my head on the pillow and dream away and praying that I would wake up to that. Sigh......May God grant you your wish and ours too =)
I live in the People’s Republik of Illinoisistan. I have not a Senator to turn to here in the Parasite’s Paradise (Demorat Dicky Durbin and Rino Mark Kirk), so I sent a campaign donation to Cruz to continue his fight on my behalf.
Who said that Tom Delay can’t be relected back to Congress ? or for some Godly miracle the GOP wins the Senate and Ted Cruz becomes the majority leader in the Senate ? we can only dream.
Love this man!
