Go Cruz Go! Save America from evil and corrupt liberal regime that hates the American people. Thank you Ted Cruz for doing the job for the same old spineless cowards and bunch of loser GOP leadership of the ugly and speechless Mitch McConnell who connect to the American people about anything and drove America to its lowest point in history. Ted Cruz is right to tell the American people what is the disaster that Obama is imposing on America and the collapse of the health system with lies and deceit will promising free Obama care to thirty million poor, foreign illegal invader sick people of the world and to Blacks and Hispanics that Obama promised them Obama care for free together with free food stamps and free Obama phone. The Senate did not had even one discussion about the damage of the Obama care while Mitch McConnell and the GOP establishment losers of McCain, graham and the architect Carl Rove will surrender to Obama's demand to never negotiate. What kind of GOP losers led by McConnell think that the House do not have any right to negotiate with Obama the new budget and budget limit because Obama threatening with using the media to go after the GOP sickening politician losers. McConnell and McCain care only about being financed and becoming corrupt millionaires by going along with Obama disastrous health scams that would kill millions of Americans with chaotic no doctors and no hospital system.

This is not a filibuster in the true sense; he's using his personal time when the Senate is not in session. Why are you so pissed off that he is speaking freely in a nation founded on freedom of speech? It hurts no one--not you, not me, not one person in this nation for him to say what he has to say for as long as he can lawfully say it. His speaking will not hold up a vote, won't delay the passage of SOME continuing resolution, so why do you care?

Bottom line is, why don't you take your focus off of who is talking and focus on what is being said, i.e., that Øbama-scare is a bad law, an albatross, and will hurt people and our economy in a far greater way than it could possibly help the one's it is supposed to help, and that it will still leave 20-million plus Americans uninsured anyway.

At one point, this guy was reading from a "Cat In The Hat" childrens book.

".. Do you like green eggs and ham?
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
I do not like green eggs and ham .."

Whomever this guy runs against in the next election, they should take video footage of this guy standing at the podium and put it in a campaign commercial.

Most all that has come out of his mouth in 21 hours is misrepresentations, exaggerations and lies.

He's pretty much characterizing the last 5 years of republican appeal from the floor of congress in hopes of yet again delaying and obstructing the democratic republic's method of fair play in their political body.

Cruz is acting like a Canadian, which he is who was elected to Congress and seeks approval for his limitations of being born outside America to cuban immigrant parents, holding prospects ultimately desiring to have the constitutional mandate of being born in America ignored and bent to become President.

Anyone that tries to get Cruz on a ballot for President is exercising their Anti Americanism and showing their disdain for the Constitution and the protections it offers citizens of America.

He read the book for his daughters at their bedtime while they watched him on television, since he was not at home to do so. Try to fault him for taking a moment for his daughters. Nevermind... I'm sure you will.

He lasted about 21 hours. Liar.

What a clown.

He read "Green Eggs and Ham"?

He probably borrowed that one from the
George W. Bush Presidential Library.
Glenn Beck is reading "My Pet Goat."

He should have dimmed the lights and read from "Fifty Shades of Grey" for the entertainment of those congressmen and women who stuck around with him late into the night.

You're the same kind of dufus that would have praised Øbama for being such a good father if he were still in the Senate, filibustering (not technically) the other side if he were in the minority and would have read Dr. Suess for his children at their bedtime. Freaking hypocrites!
