HOw did he refuse McCain? Was McCain wishing to ask a question or did McCain ask him to yield?

Why would Harry be lobbying for InSain if they didn’t have an agreement. What a traitor.

They don’t care about millions of Americans losing their jobs. That is part of the plan.

Pray America is Waking Up

EXACTLY!

I see McCain and Reid huddled in an office, phones ringing, staffers in and out, wheeling and dealing, deciding how to deal with this madman whacko bird...

The Dims have shown their true colors with their snarky comments to Sen Cruz and their repeated displays of arrogance.

Ted Cruz has put them ALL in their place without using one degrading or derogatory term.

America has been well represented...finally...by this fine and honorable statesman.

God bless Ted Cruz!

Reid asked Cruz if he would give McCain his 15 minutes....he also threw out that he would allow until 1 pm. Cruz wouldn’t bite. Poor McCain wouldn’t even come in himself and speak - he had to send Harry in to ask permission. Wuss.

I think McCain and Reid hatched a plot that they would let Cruz have until 1 pm but the price would be McCain speaking — and McCain would go on a one hour rant to try to undo what Cruz has accomplished. Cruz recognized he was trying to be bamboozled and did not fall for it.

Yes, I did see Mike Lee early this morning. He was masterful.

We are seeing the future leaders of America yesterday and today, and I include Sarah Palin in that as well.

Once again she has gone into media hell to raise the profile of Cruz, Lee, and others who are daring to fight “the law of the land”.

I know where you’re coming from. The final blow (or watershed moment) for me was seeing the GOP backstabbing of Palin. That did it for me. Tossed three decades of solid and devoted support for the Republican Party into the wastebasket.

I’ve had nothing but alienation and intense distrust towards the Party ever since. The attacks on Cruz are just a continuation of what led me to all this.

Good move by Cruz to not except another hour if he has to give 15 minutes to John McLame!

Yep Harry and Barry's inside man McShame of course he has no shame. John McCain Lindsey Graham, Corker, Alexander and others should be forced out of the party. It is also so typical of John McEgo to think his few words are more important that the obvious dedication to this nation that Cruz, Lee and others have shown the past 24 hours. McCain makes me sick. Why doesn't the puke make it official and join the Democratic Party? Hell why don't about a dozen of them?
