I have a feeling some heads are going to explode.
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

He is because he's looking ahead at 2016.  Palin isn't.  Not particularly a fan of Cruz, but he's right.  Take all the shots at Obama you want, but don't turn him into a victim.  It didn't work with Clinton and it won't work with Obama.  Keep the light focused on the Administration screw-ups.  Besides, think of who would replace Obama should he have to leave office...
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

The professional politicians get this right, and some of the amateurs don't.

Sorry people, but Ted won't be entertaining today. That is Sarah's only job.

Absolutely.  Firstly, focus on the future, not the past; Obuttocks will be in the past soon enough, the rest of the democrat party, especially H. Clinton, will not.  Anyone for President "big effing deal" Biden?

Looks like Sen Cruz, the GOPe, and Pat Buchanan(?) agree.  Even though the GOPe has loudly denounce the imperial president and his numerous unconstitutional actions, now IS NOT the time to recognize the Congress's Constitutional power and duty to impeach.

Oh, what a sad day for liberty.  Senator Cruz does not have the guts to put his political aspirations aside and speak out against the LAWLESS tyrant Obama.  Some conservatives might call that compromising his principles, freedom of speech...even his sworn duty to "support and defend the Constitution."

Meh - I call it remembering what happened when it were tried on Clinton. That sort of went no where, lead to Hillary being Senator then SoS and the presumptive Dem presidential candidate.

You want Michelle to have the same (lack of) career arc?

Of course not.  My post was absolutely dripping with sarcasm.  I think asking the House to sacrifice itself in the name of conservatism is a pretty crappy thing for a Senator to do when he knows full well the Senate won't commit to it.  This time I agree with Senator Cruz's inconsistent principles.

Discretion is the better part of valor.  Or something like that.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

My thoughts on this:

I agree with what Ted Cruz said.  We all agree that Obama is lawless and that is impreachable and that it is the House that would do that.  We all know that the Senate is never going to go along with it. 

I used to think impeachment was a "big" thing, Nixon resigned rather than go through it.  But after Clinton was impeached and then still went on "presidenting", I think of it as a meaningless gesture - style over substance.  There are plenty of reasons to impeach Obama, but it would be a distraction and what would it accomplish if he just stays in office and he and no one else has to pay REAL penalties for breaking the law?  Impeachment is too good for Obama!

Sarah Palin is correct when she says Obama is a candidate for impeachment - and her base likes to hear her be tough and direct like that.  She can say it and it won't "hurt" her.  Ted Cruz realized that when he stuck his neck out and was tough and direct, that his party didn't have his back, in fact, they were aiming at it.  Add to that, he saw that the media was doing a Palinization of him - turning him into a joke - further enabled by the GOPe (which was terrified by Cruz).  I'm sure he does have larger political aspirations, and like Rand Paul, has astutely recalculated his political approach to get to the place he wants to be.  I don't think that is a bad thing if you are still keeping your eyes on target and not compromising your principles to do it.  But again, I agree with what Cruz said, so I don't think he has compromised his integrity - he is being smart.
