ME,TOO! Ted Cruz did all he could do at this point. He and Mike Lee and Louis Ghomert, to name a few Conservatives, stand up and speak out and fight for US! No one else has the courage, fortitude, focus, balls, love of the Constitution, Liberty and Freedom to do the same. And these men handle themselves so very well under fire, are eloquent speakers who speak the truth for all to understand. I am so proud to be represented by these true Patriots. I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again...George Washington lost many a battle...until he won the war. To those naysayers where Ted Cruz is concerned, don't be a fair weather friend, FRiend. Support these men and don't give up. We can't give up. We're dealing with deadly socialism/communism/marxism/muslim infiltration. Ask any emigrant to the USA from Poland, Lithuania, Cuba, Russia just how deadly evil can be.

"I hope it is another 15 years at least before we have to go through this exercise again," McCain said.

Does he really believe that he'll be around then?

I’m a newbie but it’s pretty easy to spot his crap for the leftist agitprop it is.

“there are a lot of democrats/socialists moles on here” They seem to start coming out before primaries. Is there a watch list of the concern trolls somewhere?

Oh yeah, the big top private club primaries...

Gak

I'm guessing some can't differentiate between the truth and being lied to, played with and BS'd by the wealthy entrenched elite in D.C.....Over and over and over and over and over.

The party is corrupt and diseased...Their entire platform is based on nothing but bull sh*t.

Compromise over conservatism...Party over patriotism...Party over principle..Over and over...

The Pentagon now celebrates deviates and homosexuals while your borders and country are literally being taken over by foreigners entering the country illegally...All this while most in D.C. aid and abet them while passing laws to protect them, forcing you to pay them...How about borrowing trillions from the Communist?

Our history and electoral process has been undermined and compromised...Subverted by so-called representatives...To those still capable of critical thought, this is a sick disgusting joke.

Not long ago the the insiders and party cheerleaders had another set of big party celebrities...Like Bush and the likes of Rove..Remember? We're talking epic con-jobs here. Not enough? The dynasty insiders keep suggesting you run his brother for king...Then his nephew...

Over and over and over.

Waite till the masses relize that they are going to pay more than less. We are seeing the end of this great society by the leftists and communists that run the senate and the white house.

“The timing of the vote will make no difference to the outcome,” Cruz (R-Texas) said. “I have no intention of delaying the vote.”

That didn’t stop you from filibustering Obamacare for 21 hours!

RE :”Is there a watch list of the concern trolls somewhere?”

Funny you should mention lists.
I am sure I am on lots of them here,

In fact if I am not on someones list for dissing their golden calf I feel almost irrelevant here.

Lets see what the GOP got from Obama out of this:
1) It got us two weeks MORE of paid vacation in the nice Fall weather, OPPPS, that's government employees not us, we just get to pay for it
2) It got us a special Obama-care subsity, OPPPS, only congress got that not us. Some house GOP members made sure of that last night.

OK, this one cant fail

3) They got us income verification for Obama care subsidies, OPPPS that was already in Obama-care original bill

Do I make the list now ??

I am Sooo concerned so can I be on your list ?..

First off, I'm glad to see that after yet another Republican compromise which is more of a cave-in to the Democrats than a real compromise, rather than lots of “woe-is-me, the sky is falling” comments, many of us recognize that the best that could be done under the circumstances was to take the necessary steps to fight again another day.

It looks to me like Cruz did the right thing, or at least the closest approximation to the right thing that was realistic under current conditions.

That's good. As more and more people get forced to pay the Obamacare taxes, we may still win this thing.

Boiling frogs in pots only works if the water is heated slowly. I still think the rapid rise to a full boil which Obamacare taxes represent is likely to generate a major explosion as people realize they are being forced to pay a huge tax increase for an insurance product many don't want, and many others will find seriously problematic.

Laz, I understand your point about RightwardHo. Certainly it's true that we have lots of fake conservatives on Free Republic.

However, this data from his page should be checkable. “Retired State Prosecutor of 25 years (Fairfax County, VA). Law School, UVA. Married 46 years. Eight kids, 15 grand-kids. Born in Providence, RI. Retired to Pasadena, CA.”

Not everybody with wrong views is fake. Some are just plain wrong.

Old news. GOP house passed that bill Saturday the 5th. I ranted endlessly about it then. Not one house member voted against it.

Got lectured by a cheerleading team here that that House bill was a brilliant move to beat Obama at this.

I pointed out that it was a clear signal they (GOP) thinks they were losing. And obviously they did, but it was a bad sign at the time.

The purpose was to try to keep those Gss from all being Dem.

that was already on my posted list of the comment you replied to #1 ref #258

Hard to blame RINOs/GOPe alone for that, they all went for it.

Why? All he dd was make noise that accomplished nothing. If I just want someone who can yell I’ll vote for the Yorkie next door. Ted Cruz is a yapper, nothing more.

Some of what you say may be true, but who do we have in the Senate who is any better? Cruz can't single-handedly defeat Obamacare or block this budget deal, so what can he do other than yap? It isn't as though he has the votes behind him to do much more than that. A fillibuster would just prolong the inevitable.
