Despite annoying a lot of the Democrats and moderate Republicans in the Senate.

    We need someone willing to stand up for the people - not someone who is willing to cater and compromise on what is right. We need to really know where the President stands on the issues - and to know that they will protect and defend our freedom.
    He did it for self promotion, a 21 hour wankfest that was a complete waste of time and money.

    People who say they base their votes off of how electable they think the candidates are - have no real opinions for themselves. They are followers, not leaders. They have no confidence that they can actually send out a message to influence people to make the right decision - so they go with the "easy" choice. So that they can feel proud that they voted for the winner. Because someone else told them that it was a good idea.

    I think that is a bad idea. I think if we elected the candidates that we knew were best - then we would both nominate and elect better candidates.

    I think Obamacare (which should be called Obamadontcare) is an even bigger waste of time and money. Ted Cruz did the right thing. He has shown us that he is willing to go above and beyond how far others have went - just to do what is right for America.

    I am tired of "purists" in the Republican party handing elections to Democrats and giving us people like Kagan on the USSC instead of People like Miguel Estrada and Peter keisler

    I won't dispute that. Although, more Constitutionally sound Republicans will appoint better judges than standard Republicans, even if Republican-appointed judges are much better on a whole than Democrats.

    The problem with the Bush-candidate strategy is that he created a lot of the problems we are suffering with today. The only reason liberals dislike him is because he is Texan and a Republican. Otherwise they would like his policies for the most part.

    that is not true

    the president looks to the senators and congressmen of a given state to fill

    1) the district court judges in that state

    2) the Circuit appellate judges whose seats are in that state

    for USSC judges, its generally the ranking senators in his party on the judiciary committee and in the case of the GOP, the Federalist society leadership.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to crash your "party". But don't be concerned, I voted for the guy that most of you voted for. I would prefer for our candidate to face Cruz more than any other candidate. Forgive me, but I consider him to be the weakest candidate at the national level and would love to see Clinton clean up on him. I've always said...I love the RINO hating conservatives.

    That's one thing that really makes me sad. Why would ANYONE be so deceived in to wanting to support a woman who wants to take away your freedom and privacy - and then condemn the guy who wants to protect it? What is wrong with America?

    Hillary Clinton has been known for ethics violation every single time she has ever been given any position of power - ever. Even when she was fired from the Watergate hearings. All the way to Ben "What difference does it make?" Ghazi?

    In 1980, Jimmy Carter led Ronald Reagan by wide margins. But once the campaign actually started - and the candidates got to debate - people began to see the truth.

    Don't let media force how you think. Ted Cruz would be the most formidable Republican candidate in 2016.

    I knew that..

    Are you saying that both Dems and GOPs have purist assholes??

    Portman is sane and normal..If Ohio must elect a Republican to the Senate, please keep Portman there .
