For as long as they represent moderate America, I suppose.

Your Tea Party isn't all sunshine and roses, bobin. Nor is it just about the Constitution and old fashioned values. The Tea Party is a disruptive fringe, hard core, right wing absolutist position which I will never adopt or adapt to.
Congress today isn't the same first continental congress representing 13 colonies. It's now a legislative body and a place where the issues of 300 million people need to addressed and your Tea Party; being one of the most exclusionary groups out there, simply isn't flexible enough to weather that.

And Cruz is a self promoting narcissist, equal only to Obama. They both put self above country and now the Tea Party has sunk to new lows and stolen a play/ploy from the liberal handbook which I find deplorable. When liberals chose Obama as their candidate you may recall, most anyone opposed to his policies and credentials was automatically labeled a racist. Some will argue, that was a key factor in winning the election. You and yours are pulling the same vile stunt by calling McCain and other moderate legislators and their supporters ---> traitors, democrats in disguise, backstabbers and anyone who disagrees with your views,(says you and Mark Levin) isn't a real republican. It's cheap politiking, bobin, practiced by those who cannot win elections through honest and conventional means and cannot debate the issues on the issues alone. You HAVE to play dirty to be heard. The Obama crowd did it and now the Tea Party is employing the same vulgar tactic against some of our most experienced and seasoned legislators who have devoted their lives to serving Americans as REPUBLICANS. And if you want me to get patriotic about it, I can do that too because once you have committed yourselves to that kind of dirty play, you insult the very meaning of the word America and every American who helped breathe life into this country.
And THAT'S where I can slam my fist on the table and justifiably make you jump right out of your seat because your tactic is un-American to it's core and you know it.

kudos and if I might borrow a line from the opp, ditto.

Except (of course, right?)

"...most anyone opposed to his policies and credentials was automatically labeled a racist" is a self-serving copout for those that don't want to deal with the fact that the President was elected twice with an overwhelming plurality by modern standards. Was the accusation out there? Oh yeah. Was there racism out there? Oh yeah. However, both elements were inconsequential in the larger picture of 60-70M whatever votes, statistically useful only to those with narrow agendas.

On the political spectrum, the President would be a moderate Democrat, with the all-important caveat that the center shifts with the times, and is now sharply to the right of even 20 years ago. 40 years ago, some of this President's policies would have made him comfortable in a room of "Rockefeller Republicans". A fair examination of his business policies and fiscal appointments should be enough to back that up. There's nothing at all "radical" about his tax policy, except through the Norquist filter in vogue today. If anyone has call to deem him "radical", based NOT on the shrill doom prophet rhetoric, but on actual positions, it is the hard-liberal base. A centrist finds no love at home or abroad - just ask the non-Presidential McCain (or Romney, for that matter).

Are you looking at what the Democrats and their loyal supporters the old guard, big government Republicans are doing to this country? I'm sorry that it upsets you so much, but it's past time for a little revolution in the Republican Party, and big changes in the direction of this government.

My belief is that Ted Cruz is about as high as he can get in American politics, and he's willing to put it all on the line to fight for the voters and the principals that got him elected. I do not believe Cruz can ever run for the presidency, even though he has renounced his Canadian citizenship, as he was born in Canada, not the USA. Cruz's birth situation is not the same as John McCain's was, and I don't believe he could be classified as a 'natural born citizen', unless Canada has become our 51st state. I know the media will ensure that Ted Cruz will be properly vetted, unlike our current pResident, who has yet to produce a valid birth certificate to show where he was born.

Unfortunately, the McCain types were saying the same things as Ted Cruz to get elected, but have completely sold out their principles now that they were.(Texas Senator John Cornyn is now back to sounding just like Ted Cruz in his re-election commercials, even though just a couple of weeks ago his vote allowed for the funding of obamacare.) Ted Cruz actually does what he said he would do, McCain and Cornyn only gave us lip service.

I don't know any other way to describe them more accurately. McCain and Peter King are getting face time on all the liberal networks... only because they attack those that liberals fear, and those that have the support of a huge grassroots movement. The Tea Party is why the House is Republican, and the media is using the McCain types to try to destroy it.(BTW, it's not working.)

Hmmmm, why did every Republican that ran run on the very same issues that Ted Cruz is championing? The difference being, Ted Cruz actually walked the talk.

I believe I called this one a long time ago and the evidence is right here on this thread, the "tea party" has only added to our problems and wasn't the solution it fashioned itself to be.

"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss...."

People got fooled again. When will it end?

PS- The current situation you have issue with is (the pendulum swing)the result of 8 years of the neo-cons and they're policies.

The voters choose between candidates that have been advanced by special interest groups, monied interests chooses the candidates that "we the people" squabble over.

It is sad that so many are willing to drag this nation through purgatory just because they don't believe what they were taught in grade school Social Studies BUT .....listen closely, it's very easy. The democratic legislative process involves persuading others of the rightness of your position. Any other means is unconstitutional and unAmerican.

If the plurality decide what we are "doing to this country" - OUR country - is "the way it oughta be", then that's the way it is. The system provides ample opportunity to marshall an argument strong enough to change or modify it.

You CANNOT just threaten to burn the house down cos we won't let you have the car.
