Who the h*** is Boozeman? Never heard of him....but we all know who Sen. Cruz is. He’s the man with the courage of his conservative principles.

Hardball tactics. Was Judge Roberts’ calling it a tax a hardball tactic? How about “pass it to see what’s in it”?

Interesting choice of words.

LOL! Took the words out of my mouth.
I guess I should know the names of our U.S. Senators, but I never heard of Boozman... Albeit, it sounds like an appropriate name for a U.S. Senator... particularly if 'Robin' Leach' is already taken.

Unfortunately I know the names of my Senators: Boxer (make, that 'Her Worship, Senator Boxer), and Feinstein. Names I wish I did not know.

Boozman, an Arkansas Republican elected in 2010, stood up and yelled at Cruz, expressing frustration that his staff was deluged with belligerent phone calls mostly from out-of-state activists attacking the senator over the issue of defunding Obamacare, according to several sources familiar with the exchange. - Arkansas Business Online

Too all watching the circus! I now see inside beltway (aka: RINO) Republicans as Bugs Moran and inside beltway Democrats as Al Capone… Moran and Capone competed to run the BIG MONEY rackets in 1920s Chicago. They hated each other and often were at war (bodies of their “soldiers” often turned up on the streets... the 1929 Valentine massacre the most memorable).

While despising and trying destroy each other in “normal” times, they were both GANGSTERS and would reluctantly unite against the threat of a third party. If an Eliot Ness (Tea Party or a Ted Cruz?)… arrive on the scene and threaten both of their “business”… they unite and attempt to demonize and destroy the “troublemaker” (with a willing media, sadly even Fox, on board!). After the third party is despatched, they return to hating each other. However with the ‘net and alternative media it’s not as easy as it once was… but that don’t mean the lies and attempts to panic us ordinary folks will stop.

So Boozman doesn’t like allegedly belligerent calls to his staff. He has just invited a few thousand more to call (202) 224-4843 to give him a piece of their mind.

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Winston Churchill.

Sen. Cruz may not have the votes he needs to defund Obamacare.

But that’s NOT the point.

The point is he is in there every day fighting the fight that needs to be fought.

The Democrats view politics as war by other means. It’s time the Republicans understood that basic concept.

Shutting down Obamacare is the desire of The American people.

Shutting down Military pay is the goal of Obama, Reid and Pelosi.

Obama, Reid and Pelosi are using this battle over shutting down Obamacare to spin it into blame on the Surrender Republicans for shutting down “The Government,” starting with the US Military, as usual.

The litmus test for future membership in THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY is lack of fear of being blamed for trying to shutdown Obamacare.

Contact your US Senator today, ESPECIALLY if your Senator is a Democrat.

From today forward, every RINO senator in every who runs for office should be primaried by Tea Party candidates. If the TP candidate loses, we don’t vote.

It doesn’t matter any more if a Democrat wins or a Republican wins. The fact that Republicans do not want Conservatives in the party except for their vote is now obvious.

It is time for a third party.

These are the times that separate the men from the cowards, and we are seeing too many candy a$$ed Republican Senators who think they serve the Senate instead of their constituents and the American people. People who work for a living, people who haven’t seen a raise in years, can’t afford to pay more for less, like Obamacare, especially if it forces them to work fewer hours. A majority of Americans don’t want Obamacare because they can see how much damage it is going to do to America and to their families. Republican Senators who place the faux dignity of the Senate above these Americans need to tarred and feathered, and run out of Washington.
