does that Snake Reid know something we don’t? Wonder why he was pressing something that on the surface seems benign?

No McCain is in cahoots with Reid in trying to shut cruz down. If Cruz had yielded then it would have been over because McCain would not have yielded back, but instead run out the clock on him.

The final blow, I don’t say straw because this is such a blow, is when I heard Chris Wallace on the Sunday Shows. Wallace claimed that he had been overwhelmed with opposition research on Ted Cruz by his fellow Republicans.

Now, I know politics is dirty and that this is probably more common on both sides than we know. But for me it was the final blow. That fellow Republicans would savage a man who was attempting to stand up for the people who elected him, stand on principal, stand on conservatism like our last and greatest President did, knocked me to the ground.

I can no longer be a Republican.

Not that I heard. He repeated that he intended to speak as long as he could stand. He keeps referring to how much time he has left. WILL he stop? High drama.

Oh my gosh, don’t worry, I’m with Cruz and Lee. Please understand the fight is not gone in me. It’s only just beginning. I’m angry and it has been a long slow burn to get me where I’m at. I’m just not going to be fighting with a Republican banner attached to my name.

I’m with the good guys and I’ll fight.

RE Hoffa:

He’s looking out for “his people”. If those are his own words, then he’s probably enjoying the free publicity.

I’m glad that Cruz did not allow McCain to speak.

Ted Cruz is magnificent, showing the obvious gifts that God has endowed him with to debate, to frame an argument, to speak the truth.

Those of you in TX are fortunate to have him.

Cruz is doing a masterful job of speechifying, no doubt of it.

My concern is, will it actually have an impact?
