Like Trump said they are all words and no action. Cruz can apologize all he wants but we all know the same thing will happen if he ever gets another chance. When you have a problem you fix it. But as usual Cruz, like all politicians, just talks.
So based on your comment you believe in looking at actions rather than words.
Trump donated maximum contributions to Rahm Emanuel, Hillary for Senate, donated at least $100k to the Bill and Hillary foundation, and tried to use eminent domain against elderly women to further his casino construction projects.
When Cruz was elected to Senate he promised voters that he would do everything he could to defund Obamacare, stop illegal immigration, and bring transparency to the political process in the Senate. He filibustered for 21 hours the CR that funded ACA, he co-authored the amendment that exposed the Gang of Eight bill for what it was, and stood on the floor and called out the Republican Leader of the Senate for lying about whether or not an amendment funding the ex-im bank was in a bill.
Based on those actions, I’ll take Cruz over Trump any day.
All that a person can do after the fact is apologize! How many politicians have you seen do this! Over and over again! Cruz has done his part. I am so proud of him. I think if you knew Ted Cruz you might think differently, but not knowing someone makes it easier to think ill of them. How many times have you been upset about something, then get the full facts, and then feel so very sad that you were so rude, negative, or whatever.... We need to look for the good in these men that separate them from the rest! Keep looking at Ted's record, and watch his character. I see no one who comes close! Well, I was looking at Carson, but to not accept and apology you asked for shows something in itself!

Bless ‘em all! About time they took care of their own.
Absolutely agree, but it sounded like SA and UAE will only do so if the "international coalition" is US led. How about an Arab League led coalition of Middle East Nations with US logistical support to move their military and supplies? It is time for the "home team" to get in the fight beyond a token air sortie or other rather meaningless contribution. They fight and US backstops them with key and limited use capability to ensure that they do fight. Train, equip and watch them drop trou and run away is not a strategy and failed far too many times. It is time for a change and to stop holding their hand while asking politely for them to do something.

Sounded like a nice place until they said it’s only 30 miles from France!

I’m pretty sure that you can still own a gun on Guernsey. And that you can take it to the shoreline.
 February 5, 2016 at 5:15pm
I apologize. I shouldn’t throw long rang hand grenades when I don’t know the local conditions and politics. That’s what I grip about when our Back East and Southern oracles toss their “fixes” at California.
 February 5, 2016 at 5:07pm
A wall was part of the amnesty deal Reagan signed. We got amnesty but Congress never funded the wall construction.
Cruz now wants a wall (thank you Donald) and legalization of all “undocumented persons” but no voting rights creating a second class citizen status. Just how long until the ACLU and “public outcry” amends that and grant’s full voting privileges “full citizenship” to our unfortunate brethren. Amnesty anyone?
Sar1, can you clarify what you mean legalization without voting rights? Do you mean extending resident alien status current illegals? If that is the case, that is not second class citizenship. President Clinton explicity banned non-citizens from voting in federal elections. States, counties and cities can choose to extend or withhold voting rights to non-citizens. And various areas around the country, resident aliens are allowed to vote in school board elections if their children are in school.
We never learn do we? A lib proposes something completely unacceptable. Good hearted Republicans who feel badly for sad faced libs authorize 20% and claim victory.
In a few years what was unacceptable becomes the norm and wah-lah you got your LGBT in the military, free abortion for minors. Mooslims in space. Free space and time. Pop Tart guns outlawed!
And we can't blame the libs, really. Not any more than the dog for eating its own vomit. It's the good hearted Republicans who know better who allow the madness. Gosh!

All these values go out the window when they “vote their pocketbooks” and who will “give” the most.
 February 5, 2016 at 4:39pm
You are right. My definition of Immigration control doesn’t end at walling off the southern border but also tracking all non citizens entering the country in any direction. That includes curtailing H1B worker visas not expanding them by 500% as one of our “Constitutional” “Conservative” candidates intends to do.
 February 5, 2016 at 4:23pm
Just build a wall around Austin and control any migration out of the city!
And Houston, and Dallas, and Ft. Worth, and San Antonio, and El Paso, and and and...
I apologize. I shouldn't throw long rang hand grenades when I don't know the local conditions and politics. That's what I grip about when our Back East and Southern oracles toss their "fixes" at California.
SAR1ARM1… I’m somewhat miffed by your statement above. Being back east down south I have not advanced a comprehensive nation building strategery for Calforny…but I might some day. Will I find you scoffing and critical when I offer that our national guard units go there to restore order and decency? Ban their sex toys and arugula? Stuff like that?
 February 5, 2016 at 4:20pm
Well, dua! That and over population of the Public Employees Unions in the state that Reagan pizzed off by putting some controlls on their pension funds and investments. Four generations of my wife’s family were on the publics works dole at the state or local level. Looks like the current generation (my kids age) have broken the trend. Even hearing some fairly conservative discussion among them and my 71 year old sister-in-law shocked the hell out of me the other day asking what I thought of Trump saying she could no longer agree with the Democrats. Think her Daughter has been wearing her down!
Me? I’m a transplanted Buckeye. Actually converted my wife while we were living back in Ohio during the ’70′s. But again she grew up in the Central Valley where her hard core Democrat dad was an anomaly.
 February 5, 2016 at 3:55pm
The Central Valley except for the greater Sacramento area still is. Look at all the folks mentioned Boxer, Feinstein Pelosi, Brown all from the Liberal Coast. Go 50 miles from the Pacific Ocean high tide mark and you find a total different mind set. Splitting the state into Northern and Southern California is often talked about but a better idea would be to split it north to south creating a coastal Red West California and a very blue East California. Transplant Sacramento back to Berkley problem solved.

Lying to infidels is allowed. Not insinuating anything. Just stating a fact.
[-1] February 4, 2016 at 9:06am
Let’s see now something sounds familiar about all this. An underling unbenounced to the boss pulls some shenanigans to insure the boss is elected and the boss attempts to cover it all up. Yeah, back in 1970 Richard Nixon….Watergate…
Nah...lying...stealing votes...intimidating mailers....thats the current WH squatter...
 February 3, 2016 at 7:36am
Don’t forget the Kennedy tax cuts or the line, “Ask not what your Country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your Country.” Don’t see many of those ideas coming from the Democrat Party today and mostly lip service from the Republicans since Reagan.
[-1] February 3, 2016 at 7:13am
That be the one. The one that was too ambitious to take a job offered in the Bush White House because he thought he deserved a much higher one. By his own admission by the way.
Two things that bother me about both Cruz and Rubio is their relative youth and lifetime of public employment. Neither of them have ever done anything in private sector (you know where we common folk live and work) yet we are to believe they know how to turn our sick economy around and reduce the size of the Federal Government. “They are Conservative” “they believe in the Constitution” I hear. Neither of them have known anything but government their whole short adult lives. John Kennedy was young too but he was a part of that Great Generation and was tested in War.
 February 3, 2016 at 6:49am
Immagine how many times he has had to listen to that screech over the years. We can change channels he had to go upstairs to her for at least 8 years in the WH.
And yes this is the best they have, Over 60 % of the Governors are Republicans and they are a minority in both the House and Senate. Aren’t many Donald Trumps or Ben Carsons in their party either. Remember the names that keep coming up to replace Hillary with are Joe Bidden who already gave it a pass and Elizabeth Warren another Socialist.
 February 3, 2016 at 6:27am
Well cheer up Gabby so am I! Sometimes I think I am smarter than they are too then I remember all the money they have. That’s alright I didn’t lose my legal license for committing perjury and the FBI isn’t investigating me.
 February 3, 2016 at 6:19am
They are what the Democrat Party have progressed too in 2016. They certainly are not grounded in the individual responsibility, morality and love of country that characterized the party of Truman and Kennedy. I guess we are saying the same thing “tomato tomado”.
Hillary on the other hand is a, “turn of the 20th century Progressive and proud of it”, in her own words.
 February 3, 2016 at 5:53am
Know the feeling. Time for that transfer is sooner than I would like I suspect.
 February 3, 2016 at 5:50am
Love a beautiful woman with a gun. Who knows how to use it of course!
