Former Howard Dean campaign manager, Joe Trippi was on Fox this morning and said while Cruz will lose the fight he is winning the over-all battle with this fight because voters are tired of sending people to DC to work for them only to see them work for the lobbyists.. he expressed grudging respect for Cruz and said this helps him much more than it hurts him.

Ted Cruz doesn't have as many followers as he thinks.

Ted has enough followers to scare the heck out of republicans and democrats, and after today, he will have a lot more.

The cult of personality surrounding The Won is okay, though.

I don't care what they have behind their name - a D or R if they are selling America down the tubes for their own personal gains I will not support them.  Christie wants to support CAIR, etc... fine but do not ever expect me to support someone who supports people like that in this day and age after 911.  If McCain wants to get rich off the DC lobby establishment and give the middle finger to Arizona who sent him there to represent us -- fine, but I will never ever mark the box for him again... ever... I have a brain, I am not a lemming... Democrats are all mind-numbed lemmings.

Axelrod calling Republicans 'lemmings', is like Putin calling America 'communists'.

Everything is upside down and backwards. You just have to wonder about these D.C. guys. I just don't understand how they don't just burst into flame.

How do these people live? with themselves? How do they look in a mirror?

The problem with Axelrod's assertion is that many of the members of the GOP aren't following Cruz like lemmings. His most vocal critics (outside the Jackass of the Senate, Mr. Reid himself) are Republicans. Heck, it wasn't even a given that the House would even send the defunding bill.

Axelrod isn't telling the truth... of course, in politics, that is an asset.

I have asked myself these questions, but greed and power rule Washington but for a few exceptions. 
I posted on another board for a long time, but the owner would get upset if you criticized Boehner, McConnell, or any of the republicans that stay in the news.
McCain, Graham, etc., but what have any of the above mentioned done for average Americans during this term in office?  They are not loyal to the party, less alone the people that sent them to serve. 
They have lost their way and anyone paying attention knows it.  I hope they all get thrown out of office and replaced with some new conservative blood.

Wasn't Axelrod saying just a month ago, or so, that republicans followed El Rushbo like lemmings?  Very creative guy, isn't he? :silly:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Wow.  Good to see you're finally up.  I've missed your Ted bashing.  You provide such predictable and welcome comic relief.

Thanks!!   :thumbsup:

Last night, Cruz got millions of tweets, more than anyone ever. And, this was around 12 am. The tweets kept coming in his favor, even after he was finished. He has millions of followers, a heckuva lot more than McCain or Graham.

Yes he does have millions of followers and I am one of them. God Bless Ted Cruz and the other few senators and representatives who actually fight for the people. We are so so tired of the old timer politicians who are only out for themselves.
