    You accuse partisanship after denying that Cruz is a liar, one of the very few things trump has gotten correct. Cruz doesn't let facts affect his speech.

    You accuse partisanship when you can't back up your accusations of 'pork' in Sandy relief. Bring it on.

    You accuse partisanship when I link to Republicans accusing hypocrisy from Cruz, Cornyn and 23 of 24 GOP Texas congressmen who voted no for Sandy relief.

    It's pretty clear where the partisanship is coming from: you ...

    Reality doesn't really work for you does it? You have a warped "this is what it should be" and you force facts for your own mind

    Reality is something foreign to Cruz and and his defenders.

    Cruz doesn't get to have the first and last lie, first bringing Sandy into the Texas catastrophe. Neither do GOP partisans ...

    Especially when it's based on a lie. Cruz and co weren't against helping, it was the nature of the bill presented. And that was WELL AFTER the storm relief, not during the storm. So this whole thread stinks of IT.
    So as long as they wait for the storm to be over, it's all OK to you?

    Texas loves to play the "we don't need you" card, but you can bet Cruz will be on the Senate floor begging for the Feds to help.

    Right, I'm sure every dime going to Texas will be pork-free. Your politicians are different and we all know that a Republican has never done anything that wasn't above board and completely clean.
