I am no fan of cruz, anyone who has read most of my comments

regarding him will know I am not found of him in the slightest.

But any time someone can be a pain in the ass to these senators, I say more power to them. It's the least someone can do to these idiots who are bankrupting the country and sending our loved ones to fight illegal wars.

If they have to be inconvenienced. So what, they can kiss our asses. They've inconvenienced us beyond measure.

Free Publicity

...for his presidential campaign. He IS a politician after all.

Cruz

Cruz gets to stop Harry Reid and the Senate from funding obama's Mandatory Ins law.
It's called stopping cloture. Look it up
Cruz Rocks

Keepin' it real.

he was

Cruz was saving us from listening to Sen Tom Harkin
omg he is on Cspan now, to bad we couldn't punch tvs and they (all of them) would go poof

I don't know but it is

I don't know but it is pissing off all the establishment neocons!

I think he is trying to woo Sarah Palin

????

Personally

I think a lot is gained. For one one thing, it brings the attention of the American people onto the issue and invigorates and encourages them to call their Senators. I know, I called both of mine. It gives time for the people to make their voices heard and for the Senators to get that feedback; this does has an effect. Stalling a vote can have huge consequences in that way. It also gives those who are supporting cruz, such as Rand Paul, time to organize other tactics to deal with the situation. I was listening to Beck, briefly, this morning and apparently he had Rand on and he did't like something Rand said about strategizing. I guess it never crossed his mind that this was a coordinated tactic between Cruz, Rand, Lee, etc to work all angles. Anyway, stalling for time is very important.

Yeah, he and Harry Reid made a deal

Said he could talk till noon and then the vote at 1:00.

Reverse Question

What exactly are you trying to accomplish by criticizing Ted Cruz's effort to bring Obamacare down?

I'm just trying to make sense of this mess

If you don't mind. Furthermore I think its valid to critizise a stunt that seems to be utterly pointless.

If its only so that Cruz can get national attention and build his brand its hardly something worthy of any praise.

Clueless

It is obvious you did not listen to any of it.

His time would be better

His time would be better spent drafting bills of impeachment for several of his colleagues and the President.

I'd rather see these traitors

Try to wiggle out of a set of handcuffs.

Impeachment orginates

in the House.

Yes, I am aware of where it

Yes, I am aware of where it begins. It ends with the Senate.

As a Senator

Cruz can't draft bills of impeachment. The Senate is the body tasked with placing whomever on trial.

Yes, thank you for the

Yes, thank you for the correction. You're smart. Of course my point was completely lost in your lesson, but hey, you're right and that's what matters.

What an ego...

You attempt to teach a "lesson" based on a false premise?

again....My opinion was that

again....My opinion was that the Senator could spend his time better. I got some technical details wrong, but my point was just that. You decided I needed correcting. Great. Fine. Now please go F*ck yourself.
