It's possible that people who throw about terms like Teajadists, Teabagger fascists, Christian Taliban like glitter in a strip club might underestimate the appeal of a conservative message.

It is equally possible that conservative message has little appeal. Time will tell.

A little more for the left in both parties to worry about

Cruz will be eliminated in the primary.

Are y'all Teabillies ready to vote for another Bush?!

Not that it'll do you any good...

Great job on electing McCain and Romney.

So what do you think the Supreme Court will look like after 13 more years of Democratic administrations? Think Scalia and Kennedy have that many years left in them?

Unfortunately, as long as the GOP holds the Senate, they'll treat Supreme Court Nominees like the other Obama judicial nominees. They would rather leave them vacant unless they can confirm another Scalia.

I cannot wait to see Ted Cruz, debate someone.... Anyone.
How about you?



It will be so easy to see, those afraid of Cruz actually getting far enough down the road, to debate their gal.
After hearing how Fox News plans to conduct their debates by only allowing some to participate, and knowing that Cruz has a good reputation as a debater, you have to hope they don't freeze him off the stage by setting the cutoff right above wherever he places.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see some crocodile tears from hillary before this is over, just like in 08.
He wouldn't do that. He doesn't belittle the media while he is talking to them, so I doubt he would in a debate with anyone. He also isn't spending time talking about Hillary, which Rand Paul and others are doing. He is going around speaking on the major issues, which is the most important thing.

And when asked about other candidates, he simply says, "I will let the voters decide."

He will hit back on the issues with vigor, as we saw him do against Dewhurst. He handles himself very well. Doesn't have a chip on his shoulder and laughs off the criticism. He knows what the people want, so these people in the media don't affect him.
