Cruz wasn’t defeated. He offered a better route and his Senate colleagues were fine with the status quo in Washington. The people lost, and Cruz gained a national following. Depending on his desired path in the future, the only negative for Cruz in this is moving squarely into the liberal media buzzsaw.
If a highly principled, very articulate, very smart and fearless Hispanic man can’t weather the media nuclear attack, we may learn through this that no one can.
You're right. Cruz rallied Americans by showing everyone there are elected officials who will stand and represent conservatism.
He also exposed those who won't.
All and all, I'd say a very good day at the office.
Agree. Saving the Obamacare disaster and continuing the god-awful deficit wasn't a victory but that's what the Democrats and the GOP-E like to call it.
The problem with the government shut down was the cuts weren't nearly deep enough. Spending has to be cut by 1/4 to avoid more money printing, more borrowing or more economy-wrecking taxes.
The inside-the-beltway crowd is so out of touch it's astounding.
Can we say Allen West?
