Ted Cruz is a future United States President if he wants to be and if his walk matches his talk, restoration to a Constitutional America is in our future!
This man is extraordinary. He is another Allen West. Is it five supreme court victories he has had. Different battlefield but same brand of winner!
When are conservatives going to learn how to evicerate the liberal BS that "gridlocK" is bad and it takes "compromise" to "solve problems?"
Suppose the libs want to build some useless bridge, and the conservatives say the bridge is useless and none of the federal govt's business. Then what is the "compromise" that breaks the "gridlock," and "solves" the so-called "problem?" Build half a bridge?
I think the liberals like Wallace have been repeating this same silly slogans to themselves for so long, they have no idea how stupid their slogans are.
This is one dang Yankee who is very proud of Texas.
Based on rhetoric to date, I want 99 more Senators, 435 Reps, and 9 Justices that sound just like this guy.
Wouldn't that be a dream come true? Even better is it's not just rhetoric with Ted Cruz - he's lived his beliefs all his life, to the benefit not just of Texans but all Americans. Even Wikipedia gets it right in their bio of him. Extremely impressive http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz
Interesting that Ted Cruz thinks that Tea Partiers will rage for Romneycare
I don't think he will make it through August - that shock PEW sample was DEM +19, way to large to be solely due to Bias
I think it indictaes that Conservatives are fleeing GOP affilation to Independent or 'no affiliation' because they are totally unsatisfied with Romney as such a weak Nominee .... notice he did not stand up for Free Speech over the chic-Fil-A issue - but who DID lead on the issue and had pics taken which spread like wildfire? ---- > both PALIN and WEST
Romney is not trusted .... we'll see what future Poll samples show about what Conservativs are doing wrt affiliation
Hi Exodus - Good to see you again. Miss you over at C4P, its just not the same anymore.
A vote for Sarah & the Lord!
Conservatives and Tea Partiers know that Obama is the worst outcome possible. That leaves only one choice -- vote for Romney. Anything else, such as not voting or voting for doodlebop, is the same thing as voting for Obama.
there is a better choice if Tampa Delegates open the Convention, and nominate a TRUE CONSERVATIVE WINNING Ticket ----- > Palin West #BigFREEDOM
Dump the LOSER
yes, Romney's lack of transparency and hiding things is indeed an issue
The Left bring up his Tax Returns because they know that Conservatives and potential GOP voters care about that issue
Delegates know that after Tampa these things will be asked Romney on Campaign Trail over and over again - he will be defending his HIDING of RECORDS continually
it doesn't matter about the DEM hiding things because the Media protect the DEMs
the GOP Nominee must be fully vetted and able to run against the Media as well as the DEM Ticket PLUS the DEM fraud
that person is not Romney
only a FULLY VETTED True Conservative Ticket can prevail
We need the Delegates to OPEN Tampa and nominate a WINNING Ticket
Palin/West 2012 to RESCUE America
(Show us your FULL Bundlers' List Romney!)
Obama isn't running for Romney's job so Romney's tax records are irrelevant. Romney is running for Obama's job so only Obama's record as president is at issue. This campaign is is about Obama, not Romney. Obama has the transparency problem with his invoking executive privilege over Fast and Furious. Romney is running a very smart campaign by sticking to Obama's failures in office. The allied conservative and Tea Party groups should handle all the other issues.
Nope, there are several in the GOP asking for Romney to show his Tax Returns eg Bill Kristol. Also Peter Schweizer has endorsed this request along with requesting his Bundlers List. Gov Palin also asked for these during the Primary to try and avoid this VETTING PROBLEM.
Romney has a real problem with Transparency - Voters don't like it - he is mired in the mid-40s (or lower!), and this is against a MARXIST .... shows you how WEAK Romney is as a Candidate. He must not be the Nominee ...
You exposed yourself when you said Tax Returns.... That's a non issue and you know it! So why did you bring it up? Are you a democrat mole? It doesn't matter if you respond or not because what ever you say means squat!
Hello scrubjay, I agree with everything I've read in your responses to exodus2011. Seems to me exodus2011 would be willing to split the tea party/conservitive/republican vote at the last minute in hopes of anyone but Romney. Not saying ex isn't sincere but I can't agree with changing candidates so close to the election. Especially for Palin with mr West as a running mate. We should stay focused on defeating obama.
We most Not confusing or defuse the enthusiasm of our Army of voters( tea party Americans, Republicans and Conservatives, who are working hard and eager to vote against obama.
We have a sure win now with Romney.
tea party patriot
not sure of exodus2011 intent? respectfully supicious.
please note (C4P bashing) on this site has been band by RightScoop.
Romney is unvetted & too weak to bring enough Conservatives on board anyway. He won't show full Bundlers' list or Tax Returns, indicating he has a problem with transparency - we have had enough of that with BHO
he doesn't champion issues of great importance to Conservatives like Free Speech .... this is causing him to struggle in the Polls
we can't afford to run a LOSER against DEM Ticket-America's future is at stake
McCain-Palin had it won until McCain suspended his campaign to show his faulty brand of "leadership" to create the failed TARP legislation. That was a real facepalm for all conservatives. I don't see Romney making a similar mistake.
Romney would not ask Gov Palin since he has been behind the undermining of her for the last 4 years
A Conservative VP will not be enuff - it wasn't enuff 4 years ago ...Conservative voters need something to vote FOR, Romney doesn't provide it
Delegates still have 3 weeks to evaluate the risk of running the weak and distrusted Romney - who still has not been vetted
I think they will open Tampa and select a much stronger True Conservative Ticket = Palin/West
He'll get the numbers needed to win if he picks a conservative for vice-president. I like Paul Ryan and Bobby Jindal. I doubt that Sarah Palin would accept since she is having 10 times the effect as a king-maker and Allen West is committed to winning his new house seat.
Regardless of Romney's flaws, there is no time left to field a new Republican presidential candidate. Romney's flaws pale compared to Obama's so who to vote for is a no-brainer.
there is a way to get a MUCH better Nominee than the weak Romney who has no conservative principles , and that is at an Open Convention
he is unscrupulous and amoral, unworthy to lead Conservatives who value integrity - and on top of that he has no experience with shrinking govt which MUST be done 2013 if America is to survive in recognisable form
True Conservative Ticket is vital = Palin/West
they will not go to the Polls in the numbers needed for Romney to win
he also cannot be trusted to REPEAL Obamacare, which he inspired, and he STILL thinks his MA debacle was a good idea (they now have inferior services and the HIGHEST premiums in the country)
You won't find a better candidate now. Romney is "Chicago way"-proof, unlike Gingrich. I thought Ann Coulter was nuts to support Romney. Now I see that she was right. Santorum wouldn't be able to get a whole campaign going in the two months left after the convention. Palin is busy bolstering all of our down-ticket races. There is no one else. So that leaves us with nothing, unless you are suggesting that voters unhappy with Romney should vote for another candidate. This would be a sure loser. Teddy Roosevelt got us Wilson. Perot got us Clinton. Obama is just going to say "I won" like he did last time. He isn't going to say "Oh, 3 people voted for Schmendrick. That stops me in my tracks."
yep - there is plenty of reasons to dump Romney - he has no conservative core
he took no stand on Free Speech issue-Chic Fil A = FAIL
he thinks he will 'delay spending cuts' = FAIL
as a result (plus atrocious treatment of Palin by him and establishment) he is 10 behind BHO due to Conservatives abandoning the GOP for Indy (DEM +19 sample)
Delegates want to win (can't say the same for the GOP Establishment)
Peter Schweizer wants to see Romney's full Bundlers List, and so do many Conservatives
he is too weak to prevail = he must be discarded for a WINNING Ticket
Palin was my first choice, too, but Romney has been campaigning very aggressively and Romneycare has not been a factor. Obama is attacking Romney on his capitalist credentials. I have viewed Romney's ads and they are all excellent. Check out his Israel ad. He is hitting back fast and hard, unlike McCain who ran a totally wuss campaign. There is no reason to dump Romney. He has not said or done anything unconservative or anti-Tea Party.
read rule #38 - no Delegates are bound on 1st vote
remember the Delegate from UT back in 08 who was allowed not to vote for McCain, but voted for Romney? = application of rule #38
Delegates won't nominate a DEAD MAN and consign America to a dreadful future - they will nominate a True Conservative Ticket - the only kind that can bring ALL Conservatives in America raging to the Polls, to defeat the DEM Ticket, the DEM fraud and the Media
the Nominee will have THREE Opponents ...WEAK Romneycare can't beat even ONE of those opponents
He's very articulate. Very impressive. This is the first lengthy interview I've ever seen him do. I've voted for him twice because of Sarah. Anxious about voting for him in the general.
Beliefs drive actions generating results. Our beliefs about faith, family, hard work are the foundations for Capitalism, free market, free trade. The challenge for any conservative is to stay conservative and not give in to fellow politicians as well as demanding constituents. Great comment on compromise and going backwards along with too much spending at the Federal Level. IMHO
Rubio and Cruz have alot incommon. It would be a tough choice if they ran against each other in a primary. I do believe that Marco Rubio is a little more experienced than Cruz. It would be a very very tough choice. The good thing is no matter the turn out you would win.
Both men have compelling family stories that epitomize the American dream. To your point, honestly, I believe Cruz has more experience, and has dealt with several high-profile cases of national importance before SCOTUS. I find his resume more impressive than Rubio's in supporting 2nd Amendment rights and successfully fighting the 'International Court of Justice' in its bid to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the US. That ICJ win is very important considering the attempts by socialists to have so-called international law interfere with American jurisprudence.
Both have relevant experience, and any preference for one doesn't diminish the achievements of the other. I will say, though, that Rubio's obligations to the Bush machine worry me.
Wow - what a great interview. Hope this man goes to the top of the ladder beofre too long. Can you imagine him on a West/Cruz or Cruz/West ticket? Undefeatable. Congratulations to him and everyone who voted for him.
I agree although I would add - congratulations to Sarah Palin who propelled Ted Cruz to the winning post. If not for her, I doubt that this wonderful conservative would have won.
Yes, again Sarah came to our rescue and propelled a true conservative. Without her endorsement he may have lost.
Thank you Gov. Palin, and Thank You Ted Cruz!!
Mr Levin is a awesome patriot, who tells it like it is and he is a great tea party activist.
Mr Levin would be a great staff advisor to the next president. His understanding of the founding documents, his experience and expertise in government is unsurpassed by anyone in Washington D.C. .

"Can you imagine him on a West/Cruz or Cruz/West ticket?"
Either of those would be awesome. As long as we can all agree to Scoop being Press Secretary.....
Best money I've spent next to financial support I sent to help Walker.
I expect Cruz and other 2012 Freshmen to kick butt in the Senate and House.
Now that Cruz has won his big race and achieved some national prominence, I hope he starts endorsing and fundraising for some other candidates espousing the same principles. Payback is fair and sounds like he has his Nov. race already in the bag.
We need more conservatives in Congress !!
P.S. Excellent interview !!
Our US Senator Mark Pryor better sit up and pay attention. The Tea Party in Arkansas defeated Blance Lincoln in 2010 and she was backed by non other than Bubba Clinton. Pryor is up in 2014 and we will not forget how he votes.
One of my goals is to get Durbin out of office here in Illinois......I know, I know I'm dreaming big, but we actually do have several great constitutional conservatives here in Illinois that I think could take him on.
Would be great to hear Turban Durbin was gone! I recall in 2005 he compared our troops in Iraq to Nazis.
Kerry who "served in Vietnam" compared our troops to terrorist.
Durbin and Kerry are cut from the same rag, the democrat party.

in due time
My personal pick is Adam Andrzejewski.
He is a local businessman who ran for Governor in 2010.....lost badly, but that's when he came to the attention of not only the conservatives here in Illinois, but was interviewed by Rush during the campaign.
He recently founded a non profit government watchdog group and PAC here in Illinois called "For The Good Of Illinois"...and it's terrific!
He's 43 and definately and "up and comer" to keep an eye on. ♥
