Lots of us Cruz supporting Tea Partiers will not be the least bit surprised when Cruz quickly becomes a bright rising star in the Senate.

You can forget that.

Cruz will hold his ground. With his Cuban ancestry he knows was a Commie is and how to deal with them.

The GOPe will hate Cruz, but he will not be turned.

Yep and his depth of support in TX is amazing.

Remember, Romney won Texas 60/40 in November and our neighbors to the North in OK voted for Romney 70/30. This will never be Obozo country.

FUBO!

Texas Fossil,

Could some of y'all move here to Colorado and help us balance out the Denver/Boulder/Ft. Collins people? Please?

I bet he will hold his ground, thank goodness it's not Senator Dewhurst - for sure that would be another RINO working in the best interest of DC, not Texas!

Just for the information of non-Texans, this guy replaces the well known RINO Kay Bailey Hutchison. He also displaced her chosen favorite in the primaries.

“Given how Republicans are, I bet Cruz is totally in favor of Obamacare within a week.”

I can’t say I blame you for the comment. But just maybe, just maybe, Cruz will tell the leadership to ‘pluck’ off if you know what I mean.

So he doesn’t get any plum committee assignments, but votes straight conservative for 6 years. Not bad and believe it or not, that IS something to run on for re-election. I just wish more Republicans could figure that out.

Yes. It does feel like . . HOPE . . . real HOPE. Cruz should receive encouragement to bolster him against the deluge of “Palin style” attacks from the left that he’s sure to get.

Cruz and Rubio will lead the Latino Revolution AGAINST the DEMOCRAT PARTY as they point out the immorality that they engage in.... By nature Latinos are Conservatives whom have been taken advantage of by Liberals.... Just wait.

Cruz was born in Canada.

This makes him a Canadian-Hispanic-American.

Shouldn’t that be Canadian-Cuban-American?

His father was from Cuba and married a Delaware lady.

I love the mountains of Colorado, but want no part of cities anywhere.

Texans are often no really welcomed by many Colorado citizens. Think it is a product of so many Texas oil men hunting in CO.

Would love to help you counter the idiots in Boulder. There are many Colorado natives who despise the useful idiots in the cities as much as I do.

I traveled the West & Midwest for 30 years and love the independent businessmen, farmers and ranchers in the rural areas. Great people and there are almost NO OBOTS among them.
