There is no equivalence between the Republican crazies and anything on the Dems' side.


True, only Democrats can make Republicans look sane. Barbara Lee, Pelosi, Jim Moran, Reid et al.

Frankly Cruz's biggest sin appears to be keeping his campaign promise to do "Whatever he can to stop Obamacare". Every Republican in the House and everyone elected in the Senate in 2010 or 2012 made the same promise, to stop O-care. Cruz (and a few others) are doing something unique in Washington...keeping their campaign promise. I'm still looking for the Republican who ran on a campaign saying anything nice about O-care.

Let's remember, Obama voted against a debt ceiling increase when he was in the Senate. Stating that to keep borrowing was unpatriotic...amazing, now he says to not increase it would be unpatriotic.
