Cruz has been a senator for only 28 days and is showing more leadership than those there for decades. And there’s Mike Lee right next to him. We need more like these two!

It's great to have an offensive plan and the staff capable of helping to pull it off.

I still think that the conservatives should be working on a fast cycle OODA offensive plan to run against the 'rats and media.

Cruz is great and Hagel is an idiot. That is to say, Hagel is a liberal.

YES!!

Senator Cruz should be INVITED to join FreeRepublic as he provides "links" with his statements.

I think I will ask him to autograph my voter registration card I used to vote for him both in the primaries and in the runoff election.

Then I will frame it and hang it on the wall.

I REALLY like Cruz! In his few days in the Senate, he has done more to further our cause than the rest of them in years!

By what definition could Hagel be considered a Republican? What single Republican position does Hagel support?

Aparently you missed the memo.

A segment of Free Republic has determined that Republicans, no matter how liberal they are, MUST be elected/put in to office.

Because.

And further, Principle does not matter. Winning matters. So as long as we get Chuck in there, any hell he wreaks is OK. Because he’s ‘one of ours’.

Texas, via Sarah Palin and much to the chagrin of Rick Perry and his Hand picked sock puppet Dewhurst.

What happened to Hagel, he used to be a solid conservative?

Btw, one of his US Senate female aides was very pretty (not to imply anything, just an observation).

Let’s not forget Sarah Palin got this guy elected. Cruz was at 30% when Palin came to Texas. Dewhurst was an establishment RINO. I hope she takes a bigger role in finding worthy candidates.

He was never a solid conservative. He was always a moderate who could be easily convinced to vote with the democrats or at most vote against the conservatives.

I call major league BS!

Yes, Palin's endorsement helped, but a lot of us Texans, including many Freepers, worked our butts off through the primary, runoff and general election to get Ted Cruz into office as OUR Senator.

You are obviously NOT a Texan, because if you were you would not have made such an asinine statement!

That was a strange race. Cruz is outstanding and I am so glad he won. I don’t know if Perry picked Dewhurst, I doubt it, but he did endorse him along with Huckaby, they usual suspects and Texas Right to Life. The last one was the only one that surprised me. Especially glad Dewhurst lost in that early in the campaign or slightly before, he was cavorting in D.C. with some Democrat strategist. He has acted more conservative in this legislative session but I believe had he been elected he would be lapdog to any power that be in order to gain his own position and positive media. In other words, he may have been KBH II.

I obviously AM a Texan, born an raised, and Dewhurst was winning until Palin endorsed him. Cruz was in the wilderness until she came to town. I was here, I watched it every day, I eat, sleep, and drink, politics, so I can tell you he wouldn't have made it without her. Cruz was my guy from the get go. Cruz was stuck at 30% and the establishment money was for Dewhurst.

I guess I could take credit cause I'm a Republican Tea Party supporter that has been a Freeper for decades, but my one vote and the 2 other votes of my family is all I can offer. I think Palin can offer much more than a few Freepers.

I think you think you are a little more important than you really are.

These people are disgusting liars and beyond disgrace. They do not deserve to be Americans and especially don't deserve to hold government positions.

Cruz speaks. We’re going to need people who are good at what dems are good at- communicating their points. Dems communicate emotional reactionism (their points).

GPOe s can’t communicate their points because their points are shallow, not in keeping with the Constitution, power hungry, wimpy, defensive and self- loathing, and a lot of ulterior motives (the dems do that but they’re good at it because they have no shame).

Cruz keeps it simple. He has one task - communicate the point - forget about any other goal or motive, and it has to do with defending the constitution - his main task as senator (like all elected officials and military mimbers).

From Wikip. on Cruz:

While at Princeton, he competed for the American Whig-Cliosophic Society’s Debate Panel as one of North America’s top-ranked parliamentary debaters, winning the top speaker award at both the 1992 U.S. National Debating Championship and the 1992 North American Debating Championship.[13] In 1992, he was named Speaker of the Year and Team of the Year (with his debate partner, David Panton) by the American Parliamentary Debate Association.[13] In 1991 he and his partner came in second to Austan Goolsbee and partner David Gray. Cruz was also a semi-finalist at the 1995 World Universities Debating Championship.

Obama will run Hagel like a puppet-master.

If things go good, Obama will take the credit.

If things go south, the Republican Hegel, the GOP and George W. Bush will take the gaff.

Obviously, you think you are more important than you really are too!

You just keep kissing Mrs. Palin's butt every chance you get. I will keep working to get more conservatives elected at the local and state level and maybe between us we can get the job done.

And if you are a Texan, then proudly display the flag.

I call BS myself. I was on the Texas TP conference call when Palin pulled herself into it. Without her help, all of our efforts couldn’t have pulled it off against the Dewhurst machine. I certainly give Free Republic and everybody else the credit due, but without all pulling together we couldn’t have single-handedly pulled it off. What’s the big deal of trying to pull down one of our staunchest supporters through that whole march to a win. What good does it do to try to diminish Palin’s role in it.
