What's in a name?

Ted Cruz has grabbed "control" of the media narrative with his filibuster of Obamacare vote in the Senate over night.  The Main Stream Media and a whole host of establishment Republicans do not like the fresh face and motor mouth of conservative values.  Well, of course, we can add every liberal and democrat to that group.  But combined, the opposition to Cruz is by any means, a minority.

His name alone provides catchy bi-lines for journalists.  We have seen "Cruz Control"; Cruz'n to Victory and my favorite "Cruz Missile" - Armed, Activated and streaking straight at the Problem.

It's no wonder that establishment GOP'er's hate him.  He has called them "a bunch of squishes" on gun control.  Such language, tsk tsk.  The hateful rhetoric coming at him from all those in the minority are bordering on deranged, personal and disgusting yet he resists from lowering himself to their standard.

The "American Prospect" aptly states -- That, in a nutshell, is Ted Cruz’s political career: through some combination of luck, bravado, and talent, the man always seems to wind up getting what he wants.

This was in response to James Carville who boldly stated -- He was one of main points of discussion on Sunday talk shows, and James Carville raved that he was “the most talented and fearless Republican politician” in the last 30 years.

The truth of the matter is the reason Cruz is "getting what he wants" and bringing so much ire to establishment Republicans and democrats is because he is in line with average Americans who do not want Obamacare, gun control and just about anything Obama.  He is the last line of defense in our honor.  We love him for it.
