Aw, is someone sad?

Rep. Chris Van Hollen slammed House Republicans on Thursday, saying members now have to check with “Speaker Cruz” to get any legislation passed.

“It was Senator Cruz calling the shots, and that’s why people around here are calling him ‘Speaker Cruz’ today,” the Maryland Democrat said to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. “It means when Speaker Boehner says he’s going to get something done from now on, he’d better be checking with Senator Cruz to see if he’s gonna get the votes because clearly the new leadership team isn’t up to the task.”

It is perfectly understandable that Democrats would be upset at the thought of someone other than them pushing John Boehner around. He has, after all, been theirs to do with what they will for the longest time.

No one is living rent free in more Democrats’ heads these days than Ted Cruz. He could take the next six months off and they would be blaming everything on his “failure to come to work and show leadership” or something. He is a convenient fall guy because none of the useful idiot Republican senators from the old guard will openly defend Cruz after he failed to spend his first year in office kissing their backsides.

What Cruz is most guilty of is responding to his constituency rather than the popularity police on Capitol Hill. We have created a permanent ruling class thanks to a lazy electorate who returns idiots to office for decades. These idiots stay in office by mugging for the cameras but not really doing much. Anybody new who shows up and acts like a representative in this — you know –representative republic is just asking for trouble.

Of course the dems are gonna hate him. He's got an (R) after his name. So what? The real problem is how much McConnell, Boehner and the rest of Obama's prison b*tch republicans hate him and continually stab him in the back. Let's just be thankful Cruz is there, and strong enough to stand alone when he needs to.

He is my Senator and he has carte blanche to do whatever he can do in DC to tear up the pea patch...I told him so when I spoke with him here in Houston in May when he came in to vote at the polling place where I was working

"Speaker Cruz" would be a definite improvement over "weepy" Boehner. And if he ticks the Democrats off, all the better.

Liberals see division in any diversity, let two Republicans hold two divergent well thought out views and they see division as they are incapable of having a well thought out divergent view. It's the least dishonest projection they fall victim to as they simply can't understand real men.

Rand Paul has signaled that he thinks dancing with the other side is smart politics. Paul Ryan did so long ago. Marco Rubio has a foot in every camp. Mike Huckabee? don't make me laugh. Michelle Bachman's heart is in the right place, but she couldn't take the heat. Rick Perry, rightly or wrongly, showed too many flaws in 2012 (but at least he's still trying). Crispy? enough said. Jindal? still working on his game in the minor leagues. Many, many others (Coryn, et al) are creatures of DC when it requires taking a stand instead of the eternal posturing. Meanwhile, the huns are battering down the walls while Boehner weeps.

So other than Ted Cruz and Scott Walker, who is there who has indicated some level of interest and/or fitness to be the leader of the overthrow of marxism?

It's been two years since 2012. Nobody else has opted in and many have opted out.

Cruz. It's obvious.

Actually I don't think the Dems care. Cruz is damaging the Republican brand every day. Compare him to Bernie Sanders who has actually accomplished something for our veterans. What's Cruz done that helps Americans? Nothing.

Jeff does have the feel of plant, especially making that utterly vapid & predictable knee jerk statement about Cruz.

Bernie Sanders of Vermont ? A pure ideologue ?

You gotta be kidding.

Ted Cruz doesn't damage "the republican brand" or any other brand. He's about the only guy out there who appears to fully understand and respect the constitutional limits of federal government power.
