    Re: Now the Guns are Getting too Big to Primary

    there could be nothing better than to see Bush3 and Cruz do battle. It would show clearly that the Republican party has had enough of the crazies. There couldn't be any backing down by either of them.

    Sadly, Cruz knows now he's taken on more than he can chew and will keep his peepee in his pants for a while. Otherwise he would have answered to Bush's challenge by now.

    Cruz has a lot to answer for when the nomination process gets going and there's going to be a whole bunch of candidates that are going to be willing to lay the GOP cards on the table and take him on. It's going to be great entertainment!

    Bush won't run.

    But, you know, much as it amuses me to see your Canadian, ultra-left nonsense, what really amuses me is when I think about how Obama is responsible for Cruz winning his Senate seat.

    LOL!!

    RINO??? What gives anyone the right to determine who can and cannot be a Republican or define what a TRUE Republican is?
    They act like democrtats, they're RINO's.

    I do not agree with, or support, the scorched earth tactics that SOME Tea Partiers are using... Like Cruz.
    I don't think it's a "scorched Earth" tactic to use the tools that the Constitution gives you. The democrats never hesitate, that's how they shoved the law through in the first place. It's not really reasonable to ask the republicans to hold back when the democrats haven't.

    We can agree on the goal, but we need to coordinate a strategy, instead of having the Tea Party extreme taking their own path which is leading to self destruction of the Republican Party.
    I am glad they decided to do something, so far, the coordinated strategy is to do nothing.

    What they will end up with, if they keep this up, is a core group of people in this country that will NEVER be able to win a nationwide election (President), or enough state wide elections to control the Senate, and there are not enough House districts that have enough like minded people to control the House of Representatives.
    The people that can't win elections are the Romney, McCain, and Jeb Bush types, not conservatives like Cruz.

    So what they are doing, is hastening their own irrelevance in US politics.
    The house, unlike the Senate, is always up for election, 100% of it. It was an easy win for republicans.

    YOU HAVE TO BE IN POWER (win elections) TO WIELD POWER (rule and control the government) AND EFFECT A CHANGE (realize and implement your agenda and policies). Currently, that doesn't seem to be the goal of Ted Cruz, not by any realistic evaluation of the facts.
    So, they wielded the power that they have with the House.

    Serious questions here. As Americans does the fact your general election seems to always be ongoing ever get old? Only lived in the US for a couple of years but the whole time it always seemed like every politician was running for president/ endorsing someone.

    The Liberal MSM has been trying to push Jeb Bush for years and NOBODY will take him seriously. The last thing we need is another RINO Globalist Bush. Don't even mention the fact that at a time when there is widespread global recognition that the single worst culture destroyer is open borders immigration and Jeb Bush is married to a Mexican woman.
    How dare he violated the racial purity of the white man.

    You're right... it's not as if Republicans win Senate seats in Texas or anything... tell me... the person who's seat Ted Cruz took over. Was he/she a Republican? How long did he/she hold the seat for?

    Of course it does - did Ted Cruz win a seat that has been held by Republicans for a long time? Effectively making his seat a "safe seat"? I already know the answer. However, your refusal to answer is all I need to know how true this claim is: Obama is responsible for Cruz winning his Senate seat.

    As I said, it's not as if Ted Cruz won a safe Republican seat that hasn't been Democrat for a long time. Right? He probably won some Northern seat that has been held by a Republican since the early 1990s. Oh...wait....

    Don't let facts stop you though. Carry on with the ridiculous claims.
