    The sequester was not a solution, it was a poison pill meant to prod the do nothing Congress to make an agreement on the budget cuts. It had something each side should have hated but even the huge defense cuts could not move the House to do anything but sit by and watch it happen.

    Give it a rest, and try to come up with something original, for a change.
    No sugar booger I won't give it a rest. The man is beholding to his constituents to do everything he said he could do within his power to overturn Obamacare. If the rest of us had a senator that took his role as Cruz does, we wouldn't be in this feckless mess we are today.

    The man has delivered what he said he would do. You don't like it? Tough. A lot of us see the character in Cruz we would only hope for in our own representation even when it isn't political correct.

    Just because someone is a character doesn't mean they have character.

    What do you mean "if that's true"?

    It absolutely is true that Politifact LIED. The Reuters article and many others prove it.

    More reading and less Obama worship. You might actually learn something.

    You want a party that rails and protests and does pointless acts that change nothing , like Cruz's totally fake, attention whoring "filibuster"?

    Hope you enjoy looking at things from the back, because you are destined to be a rump party for a long, long time with that thinking.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    PolitiFact Lie of the Year is true

    Just one example of many. Even Huffpo reported a different Politifact "Lie of the Year" that turned out to be true.

    Even Paul Krugman says Politfact are buffoons

    http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/201...seid=auto&_r=0

    Their left wing bias and buffonery is well documented. Only people who want to be lied to still rely on Politi"fact" for actual facts
    Sorry, not to rehash the 2012 campaign, but to straighten you out.... Romney did state that Jeep was moving "ALL production to China" AND imply in ads that Jeeps being built in China were at a cost of American jobs in Toledo. It was a lie.

    Romney Radio Ad on Jeeps and China in Toledo, OH - YouTube
    Romney Lies About Jeep - YouTube or whole speech, with critical words at 10:36 Mitt Romney Speech in Defiance, Ohio - 10/25/12 - YouTube

    Yes, the actual TV you showed was correct; its just the issues above the preceded it that set the stage for appearing that it was perpetuating an actual lie.

    Look at the end of the Clip. Even Bill O'Reilly is trashing Cruz. LOL.
    without even watching thew video,the picture shows karl rove,right there that shows me the republican establishment doesnt like cruz,nor do rinos and neocons like rove.i can already see the republican establishment is lashing out against tea party conservatives,even though they used them to win by landslides.


    but the biggest thing i get from this,is that republican establishment never wanted to repeal obamacare,they wanted to look like they tried to block its implementation,but instead wanted it to go into effect to be the guys that said see told you so.or better yet they dont want to stop what they call a trainwreck,because a trainwreck hurts the democrats and helps them greatly,while stopping it doesnt do well for the republican establishment until after the damage is done.

    Not politically correct? I don't see it that way. I see it as extremist whining. One of the reasons I left the Republican Party, about 10 years ago, was that extremism was taking it over. But at least mainstream Republicans are getting ready to finally take the party back, which to me is a good thing. What you are now watching is the death throes of the Tea Party movement, which was originally a decent group of the grass roots, which was hijacked by self serving and pompous assholes like Cruz. The American people have had enough of their whining and their antics, and main stream Republicans are about to make them nothing more than a footnote in history.

    NOTE: I wasn't completely truthful when I said that extremism was the reason I left the party. It was really for health reasons. I am allergic to nuts.

    He got elected because there are more good people in the state that believe in standing up for their beliefs than there are useless socialist types, like Liberals.

    Mainstream Republicans are ready to take things back? BRahahhahahahah. Why would anyone vote for a mainstream Republican when their message isn't much different from a Democrat? Oh wait there is one difference, the Democrats promise more benefits! So why the Hell vote for a Republican when the Democrat promises more? That's what you get when you stand for nothing but power. The Tea Party on the other hand do stand for something very important.....The first principles of the Constitution. And one of those first principles is LESS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. So as long as your so called "mainstream Republicans" continue with the crap they keep pushing, they will lose the next election too because they stand for nothing!
    Milk toast never does. But hell they are great fun and good for a few laughs at a cocktail party in D.C.
