    What Do You Think Of Cruz?

    The Jr. Senator from Texas is making quite a name for himself. Even the GOP is attacking him.

    What do you think?

    Mind telling us how he's making quite a name for himself, and why the GOP is attacking him?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    According to the article I am left with the impression Cruz is the rabble rouser. But the article is in the NY Times and the Times is a very pro Democratic newspaper. If Cruz is making inneuendos without nothing to back them up, it does smack of McCarthyism. Then he needs to be put in his place rather quickly. I won't vote on this until I see and hear more.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You have to hack off the first part of the URL to the NY times part of it. He is an ubber conservative-tea party guy who has been going after Hagel pretty hard making accusations like he has been paid off by foreign governments.

    Too many http's. I just deleted the first http and then went straight to the site.

    The NYT bias is all over the article. I had been hearing all sorts about this bloke -- thought I'd go to the public for some additional feedback...

    (I fixed the link having forgot about the extra http)

    Yep. That is somehow entriely different than Reid asserting, via an un-named source, that Romney paid no FIT for ten years. The NYT is not exactly a neutral source for republicant concerns. He may not play well with others or give "proper respect" to the politically connected, but that is EXACTLY what he campaigned on. I voted for him, applaud his direct manner and respect his representation - so far.
