Cruz Control? Part II

But Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster, and only proved Cruz to be right, and prophetic.

Seems you are ill informed. Ted Cruz didn't draw first blood. RINO McCain, and his lackey, Lindsay Graham did. Cruz fired back. And perhaps you can explain to me what the difference is between a progressive with a [D] behind their name and a progressive with an [R] behind their name?

Thank you. Can Bevin defeat McConnell? I don't know. Can Steve Stockman send John Cornyn to the retirement line? I don't know. But we will never know if we don't try, and "Don't even try" seems to be the message Dr. Sowell is sending. We sent RINOs packing in 2010 and replace them with people like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz. Why stop there? Can we repeat the victories of 2010? We will never know if we don't try.

As long as the media is allowed to frame the debate for the Democrats, conservatism will continue to lose. But when no one reads, no one watches, no one listens to the leftist media, and their financials show they have little to no effect, they will stop. Dr. Sowell is smart enough to know that the media will do what it takes to stay in business, and if that means bashing Democrats because they no longer have any clout, they will. Let the NYSlimes, the LASlimes and the Washington Post go out of business due to lack of readership and advertisers because America no longer trusts them and see how quickly the rest of the press turn on the Democrats.

"Senator Cruz's filibuster last year got the Republicans blamed for shutting down the government -- and his threatened filibuster this year forced several Republican Senators to jeopardize their own reelection prospects by voting to impose cloture, to prevent Cruz from repeating his self-serving grandstand play of last year." Dr. Sowell, make no mistake; the only reason Cruz, and the GOP, got blamed for the shut down was due to the Democrats, and the American press. Schools remained open, one could still go to the grocery store, the gas station, their jobs. No one noticed. The Dems got their [false] message out and the media parrots repeated it. What you don't seem to like is that Ted Cruz shows up the spineless Republicans, like Boehner, for what they are. Awwww, too bad. And you don't like his style/tactics. Again, too darn bad. The Dems didn't have the votes for cloture on the debt ceiling, Cruz knew that, and he showed the spineless Republicans for who they are. News flash!! That is what we Texans sent him to D.C. to do. Someone has to stop the Democrat train that is rolling over spineless Republicans and why you object to that defies logic. Have you lost touch with the every man that you have been so famous for? When did you decide that it is better to go along-to get along than it is to fight for what is right and what are the values of the every man? Boehner and bunch are taking us down a slippery slope with their failure to stop the hydra that is coming if they continue their policy of appeasement. It has to end. You speak as if the incumbents don't win, the Democrat opponent will. Why is that? What makes you think that a challenger in the primary who defeats the incumbent can't take the election? And if the Dem wins, exactly what is the difference between Democrat and Democrat lite except for few degrees of liberalism?

Wendy Davis Lies, Media Snores

The Texas Leg is in session only a couple of months every two years. That is the only time Representatives are required to be in Austin instead of their own districts. Yesterday, it came out that Davis has spent $2,000-$3,000/month for a tony high rise apartment in Austin since she was elected in 2008. And she used campaign funds to pay for the apartment. The average cost of a one bedroom apartment in Austin, even in a really nice neighborhood, is under $1,000/month. Texas Dems will forgive her for being a gold digger, for abandoning her small (8 & 2) children to traipse off to Harvard, for dumping a husband that stood by her as she furthered her education but the question is; will they forgive her for being such a prima donna that she required a tony, expensive apartment with concierge service making her look like what the Dems claim the evil Republicans are?
The Rovians are going to continue to push some northeastern liberal squish on the rest of the nation, and continue to lose elections. Not only are these people convinced of their superiority, they are just butt stupid.
