Over the years, many businessman have said the poor economy is due in part to You Didn't Build It Obama's policies.
.
Following your thinking, if Cruz should be sent to prison, then how much worse does Obama deserve?

Hey, you NY Times-reading train wreck, I see you've set aside some special time again to humiliate yourself in public.

In TexASS, stupidity, ignorance, and hypocrisy will always be the most popular. Cooz Cruzer Luzer is a Canadian. He's never renounced his Canadian citizenship. And Scoobie Rubio is a flip flopping anchor baby. Meanwhile, Fundie nut Perry is praying for rain.

No prison could hold Ted Cruz. He would just morph back to his original form. Snakes can slither past security.

There were commies in the government and there were serious flaws in ObamaCare. Both men were right.

Would you like some time to reformulate another argument? I can go make some coffee while I wait.

If you think Joe McCarthy was right, you need more than coffee.

Cruz's fate is in the hands of Obamacare.

IF Obamacare delivers on the promise of 'AFFORDABILITY', Cruz will disappear into the shadows of history.

If Obamacare turns out NOT to be so affordable, Cruz is going to turn out to be an American HERO!!

Texans might love him with his rile, his rants, his snake oil and his grandstanding but according to the article Cruzzies favorability rating is down slightly among non-Tea Party Republicans since the shutdown.

Have the folks who called him a wacko bird, a fraud and more changed their minds?

With what is happening with ObamaCare now, those wobbly Republicans should be calling Cruz "Senator Correct".:)

The American people is expecting Ted Cruz to stand up to the evil regime of Obama and his foreign anti-American agenda to organize street demonstrations all over the country and boycott the failed and deceitful Obamacare making sure that Americans will not join the deceitful Obama plan to destroy the health of the American people by fighting the private insurance companies.

Guess Texans haven't been manipulated by Obama's minions at CNN and NBC.
Guess they still care about their childrens futures nore than fueling Obama's Orwellian nightmare.
