Well I suspected it by the way he has handled it but I am going to say it.
Ted ruz is useless. He is a paper tiger and not a very good one at that. his non-filibuster was just show to get him nominated in 2016. Wanna prove you are a leader? Filibuster. He backs down. he skulks around. He is in this for one man ... Ted Cruz.
Ted Cruz can take a hike. I started out leaning his way but have done a 180.
What a useless twit. Boy am I angry. Like in football ... next man up because Cruz is not a man.
Go away Teddy. You are not wanted
And the most Cruz could have done with this is delay it 30 hours, according to the rules.
There is nothing Ted Cruz can do to stop it in the Senate. Maybe postpone it for a few days but that is it. Go Ted.
DU thanks you for your useless opinion.
Newbie please. Go back to Huff Post and piss off with your agitating.
Cruz has been a good man, but there is a time to pick your fights. He filibustered, he did all that he could reasonably do.
I think you are wrong about Ted Cruz and about whether he should be filibustering right now.
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.
What can Cruz do in the Senate?? He’s not the House majority leader.
I took your post and substituted “RIghtwardHo” where it said “Cruz”.
Now it makes sense.
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.
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.
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
Since Jun 5, 2011
Huh? He’s the only one leading. He’s just one man, and this was just the opening act. He’s one of the most talented lawyers in the nation, and this was his opening statement. Where do you turn now since you’ve dismissed Cruz? Who’s doing more?
I week ago I might have argued with you about that. Now I'm sure that you're right.
Go, Ted, Go! Sorry you don’t like him, but Cruz is the real deal. A pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, strong defense, constitutionalist Reaganite conservative and a fighter. A winner for constitutional rights. One of the best we have. Check his record as Texas Solicitor General.
Be careful. When I criticized St. Ted, I was called a troll.
