Cruz to get hero's welcome in Iowa and New Hampshire
Conservatives in Iowa and New Hampshire are preparing a heroâ€™s welcome for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) after he showed up Senate Republican leaders during a crucial vote on the debt limit.
Cruz infuriated his Senate Republican colleagues this week when he filibustered a clean bill to raise the debt limit. His objection forced Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and 11 other Republicans to vote with Democrats to advance the legislation.
But in Iowa and New Hampshire, two important presidential primary states, conservative activists are cheering Cruzâ€™s stand and buzzing about a possible presidential run in 2016....

I'm okay with taxes and for individuals to go into some debt if they can pay it back, but the U.S. is to the point of not being able to pay off it's debts and to much of that debt is from wasteful spending.

But you guys are the ones that said that Obama can't be President because he was born in Kenya (there's a lot of dispute about that), so Cruz can't be President because he was born in Canada. (There's no dispute about that!) So, he can't be a candidate for you guys, right?
One can only hope the three biggest Republican demagogues in the Senate never get the party nod for being a Presidential candidate.
William we should try to vote for the best candidate, I'm not sure if there's even going to be a least worse candidate for the next Prez election. I actually don't point this out enough, though, The Inadequacy of Moralism. It is God, not Man determining Man's fate.
penned, I was in no way suggesting that the Republicans are without fault. I was merely expressing my observation based on his previous posts that have never to my knowledge admitted to the horrendous record of the current administration, but instead deflects attention away from it by bringing up others who are no longer in office. I do not hold to a partisan position based on party loyalties. I believe that is destructive to the Republic and is one of the big problems with the electorate as well as elected officials. That is why we see so little change in Washington's policy decisions regardless of which major party is in office. I believe in holding all government employees accountable to their oath of office which is fidelity to the Constitution, not to a particular party or individual.
whoever the republicans push, rest assured, they will be a huge gov, globalist, war mongering, anti indivl rghts, pro NDAA, collectivist. and this will be to oppose the huge gov, globalist, war mongering, anti indivl rghts, pro NDAA collectivist Democratic candidate. And neighbor to neighbor they will cancel each other's votes out on electronic machines that cannot be verified for accuracy. And someone in America will still think something happened that day.
John for JESUS, Don't expect Jim to ever deal honestly with the travesty that is the Impostor from Kenya's presidency. All he cares to do is mock Republicans and blame them for everything. He apparantly reads off the same telepromptor as his idol in the White House.
correction: its not conservative, the more accurate word would be reactionary. I know some people were fans of the Three Stooges, their form a slapstick humor I never appreciated. I have to say The Three Stooges of the Republican Party, Cruz, Paul, and Rubio, I find really no more amusing. I really hope the Republicans pick a sensible candidate for president. Well to see how a tablet get an address, I give you this--Cruz Senate Stunt Goes Unpunished as Old Tools Donâ€™t Work.
