All the shots at Cruz from inside and outside Congress only strengthen his relationship with the grassroots.

If Cruz is real, he'll go down in flames.

If he's not real, he'll come out smelling like a rose.

That's just how it works...

Republican base voters have, for quite a while, distrusted their leaders. Now, thanks to Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, they know why and they know who, on the inside, they should be listening too.

Except that in poll after poll, Republican voters DO NOT FAVOR shutting down the government.  And that's exactly what Cruz and Lee are driving toward.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

They said this morning the insurance industry has six lobbyists PER SENATOR to guarantee the HC bill is not shut down or defunded... you see Obama cut a deal with them and guaranteed they would get all those young people as new customers for their more expensive health plans... which is why Obama is spending a billion of our tax dollars to convince the young they really, really, really want to sign up for this expensive option.

You get Crony Capitalism with either party.

Only the cronies are different...

Yes, but we get it because we have too many people who vote in the same old people over and over and over again....  as a result they form a tight clique and when you get someone elected who actually would like to do the right thing we stand back and do nothing as the old timers try to destroy the "upstart."......
