    You couldn't be more wrong. I would MUCH prefer the GOP to run people like Cruz or Palin. Why would I want the GOP to run a candidate who might actually win? Romney was by far the stronger challenge to Obama...I would have much preferred someone like Santorum or Gingrich who Obama would have squashed like a bug.

    we can't have two blindly partisan political parties, or else nothing would get done.

    Gotta love how the libs are carrying on about Cruz.

    Cruz stands with the majority of the American people on an issue, and the libs pretend that he's nuts. LOL. Like I said before, Obamacare is an issue that keeps on giving to the GOP. The more the libs attack Cruz and his stance against Obamacare, the more votes that head for the GOP. Just like the 2010 mid-terms.

    How electable do you believe when the true pain of increased medical costs and decreased medical service hit mainstream America. People vote with their wallets. The extended recession, Obamacare, a true unemployment rate which is double digets make a difficult set of circumstances for democrats to overcome. I wouldn't celebrate your election yet.

    what i find ironic is that there exists a possibility that if there is a government shutdown, and obamacare encounters problems, people might blame the problem's or glitch in obamacare on the government shutdown rather then on obamacare, and Republicans might end up getting blamed for sabotaging obamacare by shutting down the government.

    Hilary is going to have no problem in the next election. The GOP doesn't have a candidate that can stop her. Republican scare tactics about Obamacare are going to be proven to be just that...more Americans are going to have coverage and American families understand who has their back and who has only the back of the top 1%. Americans also understand where we have come from and where we were when Obama took office. All of this spells big problems for the GOP....especially when the American people see through the grandstanding and game playing...they understand that America doesn't need a party that wastes their time reading "My pet goat" or "Green eggs and ham".

    You are so funny. disneydude fits you perfectly. A real cartoon from the State of California that puts warning labels on their medical marijuana that it may cause cancer. Now that's pretty funny too!

    Today in the New York Post the only one who seems to be doing any bug crushing is Senator Cruz.

    In the last hour, even as he said he grew “weary” as his time arguing against ObamaCare was coming to a close, he found himself in a debate with the able and smart Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin on the Congress’s generous health-care plan.

    Durbin complained that Cruz wanted to deny health care to the uninsured; did he not, Durbin asked, enjoy the benefits of the generous congressional health-care package himself?

    Cruz said he wouldn’t answer Durbin until Durbin first replied to three questions Cruz had posed. Durbin, with an “a-ha” gesture, responded by saying it was clear Cruz was simply refusing to answer his embarrassing question.

    He’d walked into Cruz’s trap. For then Cruz said, no, Senator, I’m eligible for the congressional plan — but I’m not enrolled in it.

    Durbin thought he had Cruz cornered by bringing up his reliance on the absurdly generous health package for Congress. But since Cruz doesn’t rely on it, Durbin humiliated himself in what was supposed to be his gotcha moment.

    Despite his marathon of speaking and standing and arguing, after nearly a day on his feet, Cruz — there is no other term for it — squashed Durbin like a bug.All in all, the Cruz performance was great political theater, and Cruz was astoundingly impressive both in demeanor and in the cogency and saliency of his arguments against ObamaCare. If there’d been any question before Tuesday about what a formidable presence he’s going to be in Washington and in the Republican party going forward, it has been laid to rest.
    Who else does Ted Cruz

    Cheers!
