Latest call to Cornyn’s office in DC “We’re sorry, all circuits are busy now...”
I have called telephone numbers of 24 Senators in the last two hours - all lines are ringing busy and all mailboxes are full. Shame on them! Cornyn needs to have his butt kicked right up between his shoulders for not supporting Cruz and those of us in Texas.
He is reaming McConnell. Politely and with no names, of course!
WE HAVE OUR LEADER!
Reid has refused to pass a budget since 2008, which has bottled up the regular order. Without a budget, the two chambers cannot meet in reconciliation committees to hammer out the differences.
Instead, Reid prefers to ignore the budget requirement and require this game of continuing resolutions, keeping Democrats from going on-record with supporting funding of this or that.
It's amazing that DC insiders like Krauthammer have gotten so cozy with this irregular order that they now ridicule those who want a return to regular order instead of blaming Democrats for their original unconstitutional acts.
A Sarah Palin tweet.

Looking forward to speaking with Neil Cavuto on Fox at 4pm ET about the #DefundObamacare efforts.
God bless and keep you.
I got through to my two, Wicker and Cochran, and their clerks were NOT happy.
I’m calling them for the second time right now.
Shame on both for taking the weasel way out with Cornyn and McConnell.
They’re against Ted Cruz, period.
Cruz has their number = establishment RINOS.
You might try their local offices.
Lee tag teaming and giving him a break.
Agree. Cornyn = Coward. I think Sen Cruz is kicking his butt, right now ;)
Kraut needs to reassess his long term health choices under Obiecare.
God bless and keep Sen Lee, too.
The French Republicans are nowhere to be found.
Just like the Dems walked out on the Benghazi families, “our” side doesn’t want to listen to the truth of OdingoCare.
Had same thought.
Love Levin’s “French Republicans” -— From his FB page:
Cruz Kicks Off Filibuster
Let’s see if Rubio (or Vitter) offer up a break/support to these great patriots!!
Excellent comparison. I will hold the same lack of respect for these cowardious republicans as I do for those democrats.
“I dont know much about this twit. could you post his link please for me?”
Who exactly are you calling a “Twit?”
Lindsey Graham ... cocktail party animal.
Though he once described himself as a loner, Sen. Lindsey Graham is one social senator. He can be seen everywhere from The Week forums in support of his pal Margaret Carlson to the Friends of Scotland Caucus cocktail reception. Hes the perfect guest: personable, knowledgeable, powerful and handy with a one-liner. The real plus? He can get along with Democrats.
I so wanted to be snarky with cornyn.
