.....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)
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.
When will Admin Moderator get that?
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.
EXATLY! What did the GOP get? MORE regulation? MORE IRS involvement? What GOP fool thought that one up?
What can Cruz do in the Senate?? He’s not the House majority leader.

Viva Senator Ted Cruz!
I think he called him, “one of the smartest.”
I’m listening to Rush right now to hear it again.
“We wouldn’t be having this conversation if not for Cruz.”
Exactly. Cruz wasted our time. But hey, at least he got a lot of face time on TV and won a straw poll. /s
And yet ANOTHER person sees RightwardHo as the troll he is. Waiting for the moderators to catch up
Amen Laz, just went back and read every post he has put in forum, HE IS A TROLL
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.
I defy these people to name a single other senator who has spoken on our behalf more.
I took your post and substituted “RIghtwardHo” where it said “Cruz”.
Now it makes sense.
A communist mole?
Please, tell us all you’ve done for conservatism.
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.
And it will be even longer if we’re shooting our own generals in the back.How do these trolls not get picked up?
Amen Laz, just went back and read every post he has put in forum, HE IS A TROLL”
I found a picture of RightwardHo :
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.
He’s probably more of a John Hoeven fan.
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.
“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
When people finally see the Cluster-you-know-what that ObamaCare is, they will remember the Cruz was the only one with the guts to fight it.
Folks, please thank them.....you know the negative ninnies are out full force....
Let them hear from positive people who love them!!!!!
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.
Dear Juan McLame... what compromise? What did the Dems surrender on the table?
Cruz will be off stage for a while now. It’ll be all Obamacare all the time. Reid will be screaming for Cruz & Lee to get back in.
They’ll be busy working for us. No time for silliness.
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
yes that’s a good thing , also for others in power
“Even cruz believes the media when the media say there is a crisis.”
Are you high??? Cruz is a brilliant constitutional lawyer and you believe he was mislead by the media??
That there is funny!
Hey Cruz bashers, pay attention, the fun is just beginning!
I’m calling after I finish my coffee. Two great men worth a hell of a lot more than the FR concern troll squad
Wow, you change with the wind. Just < 12 hours ago:
Amazing how *some* get so offended by reality.
“Not very close. The extensions are for January and February. The dems didn’t get much. We get to do this again then.”
Quit making so much sense and start acting irrationally. You’ll feel better :-).
We have been betrayed one more time. Why elect Republicans?
I’m not a cruz basher . i praised him for his filibuster.
he should have filibustered again now to pass the stupid debt limit increase deadline at 12 which would expose the media lies as nothing would have happened much less the global
i just posted on comment you moron and you call me a basher. i praised him a lot on here , twitter ,email.
I’m hoping these two libtards who are trolling FR get booted soon.
It's not one and done. This is an ongoing thing. We still have momentum in the conservative base.
Just impeach Obama now and make sure he is gone.
would you mellow out on Cruz people?
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
Worse, they're only able to get away with it because over 150 million of us have the capacity of a 5 year old. No offense to 5 year olds. We are a nation of sheep.
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.
I'm doing my part (see a few posts prior) to -- hopefully -- ensure that Free Republic remains a site for Conservative activism. As Jim has pointed out time and time again, this is NOT a liberal debating society.
