What a waste.

Of course, that's in the teabagger DNA.

He's an embarrassment who wanted to call attention to himself.

He did.

What mattered, he said, was that he had "provided a voice" for millions of Americans against the "ruling class" in Washington.

Corporations?

That's who he was speaking for.

He's also playing to "a well-heeled group" of Tea Party financiers who helped get him elected senator of Texas, Buchanan said.

Exactly.

"He is standing shoulder to shoulder with the American people, and other senators will know that they should be as well," said Martin, the Tea Party Patriots president.

Corporations is more like it.

Martin's group helped organize a "defund Obamacare" rally outside the U.S. Capitol on September 10 that greeted Cruz, who was in attendance, with chants of "run, run, run."

Please, please, please nominate him.

Dumshit teabaggers.

Ted Cruz is a pompous jerk who is hated by his fellow republicans… he is just another tea-bagging fool who is using the tea-bagger’s hatred of and deep-seeded racist feelings towards anything Obama to gain political standing among the small insignificant numbers in the tea-Party.
But the best part was when everyone pointed out that he didn’t get the whole point of the children’s book “Green Eggs and Ham”. Ironically, once OBMACARE is implemented the people will love it because it saves millions bringing down cost and covering millions more with preventative treatment and free medication.

Dumshit teabaggers.
And you know what’s coming next… how we are all afraid of Ted Cruz because he can beat Hillary. The same desperate stupidity they were saying for over a year before 2012 about Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Michelle Bachmann, Herman (the token buffoon) Cain and Mitt Romney, LOL!

We sure did have to fear all of them didn’t we, LOL!

The race thing again. Obama isn't anything but an extension of Bush policies. But, don't let your racism get in the way.

Free medication, that's funny. Nothing is free.

Yes everyone, this is the best we can do.

Either Cruz of Hitlery. Out of a nation of 350M+ these 2 are the best we will get to chose from.

I doubt Cruz will run for president. There might be another birther problem even though he renounced his Canadian citizenship.

No one with any amount of intelligence would want to run for president with all of the character assassinations that go on during the campaign.

The republicants are good at that fear thing - seems Hillary is giving them some fear food for thought.

Mr. Geisel must have been rolling around in his grave while watching Ted (Jessie Helms) Cruz read Green Eggs! It was pathetic.

I suppose it was the republicans that pushed grandma in a wheelchair over a cliff.

He read Dr. Seuss to his daughters who were watching him on C-SPAN. Your left wing sites left out the part when he told them to brush their teeth and say their prayers, daddy will be home soon.

His fatherly advice is great and should be conducted at home. I don't think rational and reasoned folks need to see it on C-SPAN.

Perhaps the Disney channel might be more appropriate?

Well, why not?

Cruz has nothing to luz. Hehe

He's from one of those totally gerrymandered
districts made up of home-schooled Texas
halfwits who will reelect him regardless
of how clownish he looks to the rest of the
nation. He's good till 2018 anyway.

HA! So funny that this new senator has your feathers ruffled!

Interesting!

The people love him, it's the "good ole boys" congressmen that don't like him....because he didn't go there to "JOIN" their club!!! He went to do what he said he would do!

GET OVER IT...or not....it's funny!!!
