democrats are sensing how much trouble they are in and Cruz is WINNING
Im liking Mr Cruz more and more as the weeks fly by!
Ted, you’re the man! Watch and learn rinos!
The IMF is a non-glamorous version of SPECTRE. Bunch of folk that we’d be better off taking out.
Yeah, I heard him on Levin’s show.
Politicians don’t give gifts like that. There would have to be plenty of kickbacks along with jobs and contracts for family and friends.
Bad headline: Okay. Tell us what Reid backed down.
Congrats Senator Cruz!
“Bad headline: Okay. Tell us what Reid backed down”
Reid and Obama wanted to use aid to Ukraine as a vehicle to add their desired IMF reforms (giving more power to international organizations, on the US dime). Cruz said he would object to the unanimous consent was organizing a filibuster.
Reid called for cloture, and to undermine Cruz’s efforts, McConnell helped Reid by whipping votes and cloture was achieved by a wide margin. They were attempting to put pressure on the House. But the House wasn’t having it and Reid was forced to remove the IMF language from the bill.
Had Cruz not staged a fight, it would have fully passed the senate with the help of McConnell and his goons, and all pressure would have been brought to bear on the House.
Cruz was the victor and the schemes of Reid, Obama and McConnell (the three seem to be continually allied) were thwarted.
Will McConnell join Hussein/McCain against the wall during the upcoming trials and firing squads?
This just shows what an impotent loser we have in the Minority Leadership seat...and all his lieutenants. Done with them all.
McConnell reminds me of the straw man in the Wizard of Oz. And his actions are like something out of another century.

I have to assume there are skid marks on the undies of mr. rove, too.
THAT is a great photo!
I am saving it.

Isn’t it?! Not sure if it’s *real*, but it looks like it is. I just love the body language.
