super, do you have a way to address the nation's public debts and financial inequality without first dismantling the global economic system? ditto for the political system considering how thoroughly it has been corrupted by the super rich?

Cruz has done more for the Democratic Party than any Democrat has done in years...and he has done more damage to the Republican Party than any Democrat has in years.

He ought to be a Democratic Party hero!

I wish I were as sanguine as you, Farmerman. Twenty-two Republicans voted against raising the debt ceiling! They literally wanted the US to default and cause a global financial crisis. These people are irrational and appear to be motived by malice and revenge. The Tea Party fiasco has caused our economy 24 Billion dollars.

Ted Cruz being a senator has six years to create crisis after crisis and I predict the hard to get rid of tea party will be around as long as Obama is president. One thing looks absolutely good for Dems is that we just might take back the House as a result of the shutdown of the government and the fact we almost defaulted on the debt ceiling.

@Moment-in-Time,
You're much more optimistic than I am!~ With 22 republicans ready to shut down our government that would have destroyed many economies across this planet, they just don't care - and their ignorant politics is more important than the millions of people they can affect around this globe.
They're still snearing at the idea that they reduced our economy by $23 billion ($18 by some estimates) means nothing to them! They're so confused, they have become the destroyer of this country "to win" over ObamaCare in their primary goal to destroy our black president.

That old saying, "power corrupts absolutely" is in very active mode in the US.

Don't forget, this was just a temporary fix, and the battles continue for the next three years.

Hopeless.

Yes, I can hear many conservative friends saying to me right around this point: "Jim, we agree with you that ObamaCare is going to wreck the country, but elections have consequences." I have three responses.

The first is that ObamaCare was not the central fight in 2012, much to the disappointment of conservatives. Republicans hoped that negative economic news would sweep them to victory, and exit polls confirmed that the economy, not health care, was the top issue. The best thing is to declare last year's election a mistrial on ObamaCare.

Second, the lives of most Americans are not dominated by the electoral cycle. They shouldn't have to wait three more years for Congress to give them relief from this law, especially when the president has so frequently given waivers to his friends. Full legislative repeal may not be possible while President Obama remains in office, but delaying implementation by withholding funds from a law that is proven to be unfair, unworkable and unaffordable is a reasonable and necessary fight.

There's a third reason not to stop fighting. Forget the consultants, the pundits and the pollsters; good policy is good politics. If the Republicans had not fought on ObamaCare, the compromise would have been over the budget sequester. Instead, they have retained the sequester and for the past three months ObamaCare and its failings have been front and center in the national debate. Its disastrous launch was spotlighted by our defund struggle, not overshadowed, as some contend. With a revived and engaged electorate, ObamaCare will now be the issue for the next few years.

These are the reasons we fought so hard to get Washington to listen to the American people and take action to stop ObamaCare, and it is why so many are thankful for the courageous leadership of people like Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and conservatives in the House of Representatives. The law is economically unstable, financially irresponsible and harmful to hardworking Americans.

it was kind of funny watching The Professor in front of the camera's saying "I won, suck it!" to the right. This was but one of a string of skirmishes, no one is even close to winning. No one is even close to trying to end the conflict either.

This is true a member of the House has only two years before having to run again. Many of them may be swept out that's true but the famously rich Koch brothers and other super pacs will ensure the same kind of representative will replace them. There is one or two ways, perhaps, to get rid of these pests; if the American voter will show up in vast numbers as they do in presidential elections, I predict that is the one undeniable way Americans will be able to take back their country! Or if the Tea Party backs some oddball who doesn't know his rear end from his mouth like Christine O'Donnell from Delaware who knocked out a perfectly good Republican senator only to lose in the main election, and Sharron Angle from Nevada who ran a strong race and failed against Majority Speaker of the senate, Harry Reid, and then the Democratic challenger wins.

Other than that I'm not very optimistic as it looks like our government is screwed by fanatics from out-of-space!

I had to take issue with this--those jokers start running again immediately after they're sworn in for the current term. Representatives are like a comedian who can't shut up--they're always "on."

D's and the Professor are peacocking around, and " journalists" are writing odes to them, but the problem has not been solved even a little bit. D's actually winning would require them pushing for a solution to the disagreement in such a way that after they could take credit for it. What they actually do is stomp their feet while shaking their heads no as they wave their finger with their mouth clamped shut. what it is is more evidence that the D's need to be replaced along with the R's.

I do agree with you that Ted Cruz has been a blessing in disguise for the Democratic Party! His maddening performance along with his Lemming-like supporters in the GOP during the government shut-down was simply abominable, leaving a sick taste in the mouth of numerous Americans, some who were literally afraid we would default and they might not get their end-of-the-month check! I think this dread of the Republican Party, who has cut food stamps for the very needy among us, will remain in the thoughts and feelings of myriad Americans for some time to come, at least long enough to run that tea party garbage out of government. Cruz has promised he would do anything to disrupt government until Obama gets rid of "ObamaCare." What a sick psychopath!!!!!

Local news is doing stories about people who support Cruz and are not criticizing him that I can see. The Chronical sort of criticized him yesterday, but, in today's follow-up, they emphasized that they still support him.

Allan Dershowitz taught Cruz at Harvard Law an he said that Cruz was the brightest student he ever had. However, Dershowitz then added something like,
"I don't know what the hell happened to him after that".

Dershowitz added that the GOP , as its presently constituted, seems not to be FOR ANYTHING. They are only AGAINST ANYTHING associated with Obam.
