    Re: Ted Cruz launches faux filibuster as Senate readies spending bill vote

    Congressional Approval has declined all but one year since 2001 and is sitting at 15%.
    68% of Americans feel the country is on the wrong track.

    People are getting tired of career Senators who have lost touch with the people.
    I'm tired of defeatist Republicans that don't even have the willpower to put up a fight anymore, they need to go.

    Sure their has to be some compromise to get anywhere in a two party system but all I'm seeing is Republicans getting steamrolled (on just about every issue) without even putting up a fight, or having the audacity to criticize when some new blood actually comes in and tries to fight for us.

    Obamacare is overwhelmingly unpopular so it is not unsurprising that the house wants to defund it.

Part of growing up in the Midwest is you learn to trust but verify. Now all I have to do is verify that incredible Obama performance so that I can show the 57% of the public that is giving him bad approval numbers just how wrong they are. Be the first liberal Obama supporter to point me in the right direction to get that data? Thanks

    Considering that you believe that GWB has an outstanding President and led us to economic Utopia....forgive me if I don't try to educate you. You, my friend, are simply beyond hope. You constantly get taken to task here and yet you don't see it....you just continue with the same old talking points over and over. So sorry my friend....it isn't worth the effort to try to teach you.

    Kudos Paratrooper, well stated. Today I was reading a story that told one thing the left may be willing to do is postpone the individual mandate for one year and do away with some medical device tax. Some of the Republican senators think this is progress. But who benefits putting off the individual mandate until AFTER the 2014 mid term elections? Certainly not Republicans. DUH.

    add another republican senator to the list of people who don't think Cruz knows what he is doing.

    Have to destroy the guy, don't you? Anyone that goes against our incompetent President has to be destroyed. How about pointing me to the sites that show the results that justify your loyalty to Obama?

    It shows how out of touch and how wacko the Republican party has gotten.....if the GOP is going to survive, it better purge itself of these buffoons...this is why so many of the more reasonable Republicans are beginning to speak out.

    Heh, that's funny, but you'd have been better off using the popular vote total rather than the electoral vote total to make that point.

    Great, Obama won, so why is he still campaigning? How about pointing me to the sites that show his accomplishments and why you still support him? Didn't ask you why you voted for him, his campaign website is full of fiction, I asked you to point me to his accomplishments that warrant your support
