  • Alexander Bolton, The Hill

    Cruz joined other '16 contenders in bashing O's flip in Cuba policy. “Fidel & Raul Castro have just received both int'l legitimacy & a badly-needed econ. lifeline from Obama. But they remain in control of a totalitarian police state modeled on the Soviet Union."

  • Erick Erickson, Red State

    After a week of libs bellyaching about the US “torturing” terrorists, we have bowed to the terrorists of N. Korea and bailed out the Cuban regime that jails gays, Christians, & dissidents and engages in physical torture. The leftist outrage is more about hating the U.S. than hating human rights abuses.

  • Niels Lesniewski, Roll Call

    Sen. Michael B. Enzi will be the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee in the next Congress. The Wyoming Repub. will get the job over current ranking member Jeff Sessions, who announced he’d be deferring the position. 

  • Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review

    Conservatives must draw a bright red line now. The top issue going forward through the rest of this month and into Jan. is not Keystone or the medical device tax, as McConnell has suggested; it is stopping Obama’s amnesty. 

  • Leon H. Wolf, Red State

    Fact: The Cruz-Lee point of order bought Reid 10 hours worth of floor time on Sat. There's no way Reid would've let over 24 important nominees just die for the sake of going home Tues. instead of Weds. or Thurs. Stop blaming Cruz.

  • Alden Abbott, Daily Signal

    Per the judge, the exec. action in effect is legislation & therefore violates the constitutional separation of powers. But the court didn't order the admin. to stop implementing the action. The court rejected the argument that O’s action applies only to civil deportation proceedings. 

  • Tony Lee, Breitbart

    The Senate confirmed Sarah Saldana, who has said she would implement Obama's exec. amnesty & believes that illegal immigrants who qualify for it have a "right" to citizenship, to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

  • Dan Bongino, Conservative Review

    The majority of GOP in Congress aren't committed to either fighting for liberty or economic conservatism. Some GOP power players would prefer to see a Dem in a House or Senate seat rather than a renegade Repub. But this is our party. We must fight back.

  • Chuck Ross, Daily Caller

    Susan J. Douglas hates Republicans and wants you to know about it. When Susan J. Douglas isn't working as a professor & chair of Communications Studies at the Univ.

  • Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

    A Jeb Bush candidacy is totally divorced from the reality of primary politics, only showing how out of touch Beltway media types are with GOP primary voters.

  • Rush Limbaugh, RushLimbaugh.com

    "[Bush is] being looked at as a savior by the big money donor class & consultant class, the estab. of the party, to head off the Tea Party. Somebody like Jeb -- could be a sacrificial run just to make sure that a conservative doesn't get the nomination in '16." 

  • Jim DeMint, Daily Signal

    Instead of focusing on O’s unlawful amnesty, some in the GOP went so far as to accuse Cruz and Lee of helping Reid confirm Obama's radical nominees. What Cruz & Lee did was stand up for those who are tired of the status quo.

  • Courtney Coren, NewsMax

    Ted Cruz's attempt to force a vote on defunding O's exec. amnesty was the right move, says former OH state Treasurer & Sect. of State Ken Blackwell. "Cruz was right on target with his advancement of a strategy that would've stopped Obama's unconstitutional power grab in its track."

  • Matthew Vadum, American Thinker

    What really infuriates namby-pamby GOP senators is that Cruz forced them to take a public stand on the O's unilateral amnesty. They know that the GOP base is mad as hell over the amnesty, and they don't feel the need to answer to mere hoi polloi. 

  • PJ Tatler, PJ Media

    Although the estab. talking points blame Ted Cruz & Mike Lee for Reid’s “opportunity” to get these nominations approved, it was always Reid’s plan to get as many through the system before control of the Sen. is turned over to the R's.
