Cruz was would make an excellent Solicitor General
Here’s my thought: what the devil is a Solicitor General?
Yeah if you could stop with the vanities, that would be great.
Cruz is a Bush operative.
He would have destroyed our sovereignty just as quickly as Jeb
Getting Cruz out of the Senate would solve some of the Turtle’s problems.
The government’s lawyer. Cruz is the longest-serving solicitor general in Texas history.
The United States Solicitor General is the third-highest-ranking official (co-equal in ranking with the United States Associate Attorney General) in the U.S. Department of Justice. The United States Solicitor General is the person appointed to represent the federal government of the United States before the Supreme Court of the United States.
The Solicitor General determines the legal position that the United States will take in the Supreme Court. In addition to supervising and conducting cases in which the government is a party, the office of the Solicitor General also files amicus curiae briefs in cases in which the federal government has a significant interest in the legal issue. The office of the Solicitor General argues on behalf of the government in virtually every case in which the United States is a party, and also argues in most of the cases in which the government has filed an amicus brief.
In the federal courts of appeal, the Office of the Solicitor General reviews cases decided against the United States and determines whether the government will seek review in the Supreme Court. The Office of the Solicitor General also reviews cases decided against the United States in the federal district courts and approves every case in which the government files an appeal.
Both of them are more valuable in the Senate,
You can count on one hand the number of Senators on the side of the citizens and the rule of law.
All of the Senators who voted for the Gang of Eight should be removed from office.
Murkowsky, Hoeven, McCain and Rubio were just rewarded with another term for betraying the citizens with the Gang of Eight.
Flake, Corker Hatch and Heller are up in 2018, plans for their defeat should begin now.
Graham and Alexander don’t come up until 2020.
Kirk and Ayotte ere dispatched by the voters already.
I do not believe Crux would step down to be solicitor general. Nor should he. He is needed in the Senate and so is Sessions. You can find other people just as good so leave Sessions and Cruz where they are.
This would be the ideal combo. It would give Cruz some time to improve his behavior under Sessions guidance.
Wow how many of you have heard of Ian Gershengorn?
SOLD! Cruz for Attorney General!
Trump AG will likely drop charge vs Sheriff Arpaio
any trump ag would
Why would he take a post that is lower than a Senator? Supreme Court. That would definitely po the libs.
His arrival on the Court would also make life miserable for the libs already there and hasten their desire to retire.
Cruz would make a great ambassador to East Timor.
As much as they would be good choices, I wonder if both would serve better in the Senate.
A price is needed to remove the Cruz from the Senate. Once his replacement is a Republic he should be a SC or AG.
I pray both men remain in the Senate.
