  •  Where was Cruz 8 years ago? (0+ / 0-)

    When Republicans were upset that Democrats filibustered the 7 partisan hacks and ideological extremists that Bush nominated to the Federal bench, did Cruz say that a 50 vote threshold was a "procedural gimmick?" When I went to school, it was referred to as "majority rule." There are times when a minority may object to a tyranny of the majority, but in this case, it's the minority that's being tyrannical.

    The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman
