And Guts is Enough

What the hell is going on? I know there are different factions within the Republican party, and I know Mitch McConnell, John McCain and Lindsey Graham (and most of the other "establishment Republicans") ain't grooving on Ted Cruz. They ridicule him as an upstart who is trying to jump his place in line. He's just a loudmouth who doesn't understand the etiquette and traditions of the Senate, and besides, just firing up the base does no good. Obamacare will not be defunded!

But I'm guessing the old guard is starting to remember a back-bencher who went over the heads of the leadership in a similar way, way back when, and actually took the joint over. You may remember him, Newt Gingrich. So the old dogs are feeling the heat and going on the offensive, with the help of MSM and Harry Reid no doubt.

This is a dangerous game for the Republicans (and I for one will not forget). I believe that Obamacare will become law and I also believe it will fail (to the political detriment of the Democrats). But I see no downside to vigorous and vocal opposition. When the the true effects of this law become painfully apparent I want there to be no doubt in the minds of the American people that Republicans/conservatives did everything they could to oppose it. Otherwise, and you can take this to the bank, the Democrats and the media will find a way to lay this disaster at OUR door.

So all these pussy-footing country club Republicans had best beware, Ted Cruz has guts, and sometimes that's enough.
