Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) contends the Obama administration has been "lawless" in a host of recent actions.
In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, the outspoken conservative said the president's decisions to delay portions of the healthcare reform law and install contested nominees amount to a flagrant disregard for the law and longstanding tradition.
"The pattern we've seen under President Obama, disregarding the law, is really one of the most troubling aspects of this presidency," he said. "When he disagrees with the lawâ€¦he simply refuses to comply with it."
Cruz's remarks came as the Supreme Court prepares to hear a case Monday challenging a trio of contentious recess appointments the president made to the National Labor Relations Board. Lower courts have deemed them unconstitutional, and Senate Republicans have asked the high court to overturn them....
Ah, Mike of N.Y., I see that I might have ignored you! A famous right-wing politician of the 19th century had an excellent description of Cruz, Rand, and Rubio
[Politician] A sophistical rhetorician, inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity, and gifted with an egotistical imagination that can at all times command an interminable and inconsistent series of arguments to malign an opponent and to glorify himself. Send quote to a friend Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) British politician and author.
Apparently I had better correct that, or people will start wondering what's the color of the shirt I'm wearing. :-7. I'm slightly right of center as far as economic issues are concerned. Always happy to lighten your day, Mike!

So, we are to believe that from January 20th, 2001 to January 20th, 2009 you never spake or typed an ill word about President Bush or his policies to anybody???? Or is this a conviction you just recently picked up?
As far as President Obama is concerned, I Biblically recognize him as the leader, or as Mike of N.Y., would say King, so no I don't bash sitting Presidents. I have bashed Jimmy Carter, the anti-Semite, Wild Billy Clinton, the adulterer, and for other actions. Cruz, is not my leader, so I consider him fair game. But, hey I saw this in a right-wing publication, and since my posting of the URL for the Washington Post, wasn't good (I take it isn't exactly a hot bed of liberalism either, here is another site to look at: Congress Is Now Mostly A Millionairesâ€™ Club. I would probably get a 100% approval rating from the tea-party for this post. By the way, I'm an Independent with slightly right views on economic issues a very far right view on social ones, I could almost be considered a Sam's Club Republican, q.v., Samâ€™s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party.
Jim, is there a reason you consistently bash Republicans, and never say a word against Obama, who is hostile to true Christianity? It would seem an independent would speak out against both. Personally, I think both parties are a bunch of power hungry scam artists, who care more about votes than upholding the constitution and representing the American people.

By the way there was an interesting article, which got some publicity, >Now most of the members of Congress are millionaires. I don't think this particular article mentioned it, but I think the majority of these fat cats are Democrats. Just to show you I can be even handed.
Because you admit to ONE inescapable fact you call that even handed??
Besides, it is no sin to be a millionaire. So, even that is not a criticism. Go back through 25 pages of Jim Lincoln comments, find the political ones, count the times he criticizes republicans and the times he says a negative about the democrats, and then tell me you are even handed.
