I like that he called him not only the 'smartest'.

.....but one of 'the most principled law students to EVER have gone through Harvard.'

THIS is who we are getting to know.....a principled man....(rare in DC)

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.

Wow, you actually are using outright Dem-talking-points.

I won't bother to explain what Cruz accomplished, not to a troll like you.

How right you are. Without Cruz we could have surrendered 2 weeks ago like we have on everything else. The only thing Cruz did was shine the light on the liberal roaches that infest the republican party and they are just mad.

In a way Cruz has hastened the coming civil war in the republican party which is a good thing as the way it is currently being ran it will never win another national election. Whey vote for liberal lite when you can have the real thing by voting (D).

There is not opposition party to the democrats currently. The GOP has essentially adopted the “me too only a little cheaper” approach, where is the choice here? There is none.

100% agree.

Now we have Freepers going Peter King on the most conservative guy in the whole damn senate. Nice circular firing squad guys.

All he could have done would be delay it. This fight was dead the moment the RINOS refused to back Cruz’ plan.
A disgrace that people would try to throw this guy under the bus. If this is the thanks he gets, its no wonder nobody ever puts their neck on the line.

I will tell you the single biggest surprise in arriving to the Senate is the defeatist attitude here. I mean, we don't even talk about how to win a fight. There's no discussion. We talk about, "Hey, let's get a show vote so we can go tell our constituents we're doing something." But I promise you, Rush, if you had to sit through one Senate lunch, you'd be in therapy for a month ... but they've been here a long time, and they're beaten down, and they don't believe we can win. They don't believe it can happen, and the answer they say on every issue is, "No, we can't do it. We can't do it."

'Tis better to have tried in vain, Sincerely striving for a goal, Than to have lived upon the plain An idle and a timid soul.

'Tis better to have fought and spent
Your courage, missing all applause,
Than to have lived in smug content
And never ventured for a cause.

For those who try and fail may be
The founders of a better day;
Though never theirs the victory,
From them shall others learn the way.
... Edgar Guest

Viva Senator Ted Cruz!

Cruz is exactly where Churchill was in 1934, in the wilderness even within his own party.

But Churchill prevailed in the end, because he had the truth on his side...Just as Cruz will ultimately prevail. So long as he sticks to his guns. This is a long war, folks.

It wasn't wasted. We get to do this again in January and February. Cruz is doing exactly what I elected him to do: disrupt business as usual in DC.

He'll be there for at least 5 more years, and there isn't anything you can do about it.

He’s a lot more useful than you are. Of course, the fact that you’re a liberal, pretty much makes you useless to anybody, including yourself.

My question is, when is FR going to finally give you the boot, you so richly deserve. I hope I’m around to see it.

I'm bitterly disappointed by this surrender.

The Senate, including Ted Cruz, has acquiesced in an internal coup.

There's no way to sugar coat it.

0bama is now a tyrant and a dictator. The only way to challenge him directly is to force him to violate his constitutional oath to guarantee the full faith and credit of the US and default.

He can then be impeached.

We need a congress with the guts to go the mat with this thug and make sure that he understands the implications.

Counting Cruz out is playing checkers. He’s playing chess.

and that’s what’s necessary with the media, BO, the senate and the majority of republicans against the logical Constitutional adherents.

Patience with the good Senator Cruz.

Anyway, if he IS running for Prez, it’s not for the perks.

“Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) echoed that message.

“I hope it is another 15 years at least before we have to go through this exercise again,” McCain said. “We're in a hole, we have to dig out and come up with a positive
agenda.”””


The only good thing is that in 15 years we are pretty much guaranteed that this traitorous POS will be dead.

Exactly right. Principled conservatives need to recognize this, and to recognize that the establishment Republicans are the heart of the problem. There will always be a leftist party -- human nature, unfortunately, causes many people to fall for the deception. What is inexcusable is to allow leftists within a purported opposition party.

Ignore the phony R/D ratio. It is irrelevant. The only relevant question is: how can the Republicans be morphed into an effective opposition force? The obvious answer is to oppose, both in primaries and the general election, any liberal with an R next to their name. Do that, and the war becomes winnable. Don't do that, and the war is lost.

IBTZ.

This type of ad hominem attack betrays your underlying leftism. Ted Cruz is a true American Patriot. Your scurrilous characterization reveals that you're firmly in the enemy camp and don't belong with the Conservatives steadfastly fighting for God and country here on Free Republic. It's my hope that the powers that be will banish you and those of like mind from this site.

All he said was that if the vote happens today or tomorrow it wont make a difference so he will not delay it.

Boner is going to allow a vote on something the DEMOCRATS want. (ignoring the ‘Hastert rule’)- in a republican-controlled house he will let the democrat minority overrule the majority

This is ALL BONER’s fault and nothing to do with Cruz

Ted will be fully vindicated by the time obamacare finishes rolling out. Open enrollment at most companies has barely begun. Wait until people start finding out their employers are kicking them onto the exchange or they switch to a new plan that doesn’t have their doctor on it. Wait until they see their new premiums and deductibles. Wait until the Medicare Advantage patients start losing their supplemental coverage. Oh, and those 20-somethings? Do you really think they’re going to sign up? Heck, that $300-$400 per month is a student loan or car payment. Besides, they can stay on mom and dad’s plan for a while. If dems think their rat constituents are not going to be affected by this, they are truly delusional.
