Ted Cruz Building Presidential Campaign

The Texas senator is putting together his team reports the Washington Examiner. “The Republican senator from Texas tentatively plans to fill senior campaign positions with the triumvirate he signed last summer to expand his political operation. At the top is Jeff Roe, whose organizational title is undefined but who would be the campaign’s chief strategic and […]

The Republicans have gone to great lengths to avoid the circus that was the 2012 primary season.  But (fortunately for liberal bloggers) it doesn’t seem to be working.  The field looks very crowded. Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Rick Perry and Santorum have been included in the vast majority of polls, have said they […]

Thank You Ted Cruz

The Democratic controlled Senate is going out in style with a record number of confirmations for President Obama.  And they had some unlikely (if unintended) help: Thanks to some help from Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada — and arguably Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who delayed the Senate over a procedural fight — 132 executive nominations were approved […]

Chris Wallace asked Ted Cruz, who is threatening to hold up all Obama nominations, if he’d be willing to hold up confirming Loretta Lynch as attorney general to keep in Eric Holder, who he doesn’t like. Cruz began by decrying Obama’s “wholesale refusal to enforce our immigration laws,” alleging the president had “essentially gotten into […]

Following up on a previous coloring book teaching your kids to love the Texas Senator, our superhero now saves America. According to a statement from the book’s publisher, “[t]he supplement and book are fact based, fair and objective, about a man who millions of American citizens consider a real life true to heart super hero […]

Texas Senator Ted Cruz likely believes this will stir up the base to support him for a 2016 presidential run. But that seems unlikely. But even his fellow conservatives aren’t all jumping on board – a sign that the Republican repeal or bust movement is struggling while Obamacare continues to enroll millions of people with […]

Senator Ted Cruz apparently doesn’t mind multi-tiered Internet service, where big companies get a faster digital highway. Net neutrality ‘puts the government in charge of determining Internet pricing, terms of service, and what types of products and services can be delivered, leading to fewer choices, fewer opportunities, and higher prices for consumers,’ Texas Republican Sen. […]

A group of Republicans want confrontation, not compromise and reconciliation. Tea Party Republicans want a fight. Despite Republicans’ ascension to Senate control and an expanded House majority, many conservatives from the party’s activist wing fear that congressional leaders are already being too timid with President Obama. They do not want to hear that government shutdowns […]

Senator Ted Cruz says Republicans may cooperate with Democrats and pass an Internet sales tax. Cruz said party leadership could take up the bill in the lame-duck session, when recently-defeated Democrats would be able to support the bill. “There are some voices in Washington who want a lame duck precisely so they can engage in corporate […]

Senator Ted Cruz couldn’t wait one more day.  He gave a gift to Democrats by talking about what he would do if his GOP takes over the Senate in tomorrow’s elections. Cruz promises more confrontation in the Senate, more gridlock in Washington and more partisanship in Congress. In recent comments that were bannered on the […]
