    Obama. Obama?…”Present.”

  • marketcomp

    Great! I, for one, am looking forward to his speech! Could this mean something? Cruz’n for 2016!

  • marketcomp

    ArchAng3l Obama tonight……Watching something else.

  • Stehekin912

    Can’t wait!  Will be here with bells on!!

  • MarieCowsert1

    Yep……I do believe he’s planning a run….
    I’ll be at work but I feel sure that Scoop will post…..:)

  • comingapart

    Run… Ted…. Run…

  • palintologist

    Heh.  Finally, a speech I’d watch.

  • kong1967

    Uh, if this isn’t campaigning for President I don’t know what is.  He is putting himself out there to be analyzed, and I don’t believe we see Senators doing this on a daily basis.  They argue positions on certain issues up for vote, but they don’t give policy speeches.  I think he’s going to run.

  • Stehekin912

    Agreed.  Definitely not watching the Jackal

  • Alborn

    I am torn here. I want Allen West on the ticket. We need a true American loving military man on the ticket in 2016 who can articulate his love of country with facts. Cruz and West would make a wonderful pair.

  • TimothyJacques

    palintologist could you imagine the synergy Cruz will attract?  He scored points for me when he gave major props to Sarah at  CPAC.

  • lawngreen

    He’d better do it now. There may not be any point tomorrow.

  • 12grace

    Go get em Ted  Cruz! I love this guy!

  • subie201

    Finally a statesman Americans can respect! For the past five years we have been listening to nothing but lying morons from the Communist in Chief, to the MSM, to the Rinos! It’s more than anyone can stand!

  • Las1

    Obama. Obama? … Campaign event in Las Vegas.

  • InaudibleNoise

    Love, Love, LOVE TED CRUZ!!!!!!!

  • lawngreen Didn’t quite understand your statement, clarify please?

  • palintologist Yeah I had to turn the earlier speech from this eve off. Good grief.

  • Jurisprudence

    Sounds like Cruz definitely going to run!

  • waffle_anna

    And the best thing: No shitty telepromter!

  • NJK

    Did anyone have the stomach to watch the Muslim Brotherhood member’s speech tonight?  I sat down on the computer, and the minute it popped up, there he was, staring us in the face, the face of Al Queda, Barack Hussein Obama.  I had to turn away.  He gets creepier and creepier every day.

  • taurnil

    NJK Not I.

  • The Sentinel

    Very interesting. While I fully support a ‘true’ conservative’s perspective on all of this, I consider this more grooming for Ted Cruz for a presidential run in 2016… which is fine with me.
    I’m glad he’s doing this.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    NPC1 lawngreen I interpreted it as the hour is late.

  • lawngreen

    NPC1 lawngreen Sorry for the delay. I went offline after posting that remark.
    What I meant was, Cruz’s speech is / was planned to respond to a set of circumstances that may be radically different by today. obama’s speech last night was one thing I was wondering about, but mostly just the fact that this is a highly volatile situation.
    For instance, I learned this morning that part of the deal Syria made with Russia was that Russia is shipping them more conventional weapons in exchange for Syria’s surrender of chemical weapons. I wasn’t aware of that last night. Presumably Cruz’s speech would not have included that factor either. He’ll have to modify his speech or look irrelevant.
    Going the other way, obama could have decided that he’d lost this one and instead of asking for a “pause”, told Congress he was no longer asking for any military action at all. Again, speech irrelevant.
    Cruz is making major waves, probably thinking of a 20156 POTUS run, and looking irrelevant or slow is not a good thing. It’s a long way to 2016, but one slip-and-fall can hurt a candidate’s campaign, even if it’s old. We saw that in the 2008 republican debates.

  • NJK He gets muted every time, and it’s time to get another cup of coffee, just like commercial time.  And don’t  get me started on that industry, ‘don’t have the time right now, but I’ll get around that one too, soon.

  • Dr. Strangelove NPC1 lawngreen Thanks Dr. Got it now. 🙂

  • lawngreen NPC1 Thanks for your clarification Lawngreen. I totally understand where you were coming from now. Yeah, understandable he’s in a predicament of sorts now, it’s tough fighting kabukee theater.
    Glad you brought us up to date on the latest updates, seems that our ‘friend’ Puttin is running circles around our infamous State Department. You suppose there will be a medal in it for the “Bufoon’?
    As far as ted Cruz goes he doesn’t need a  pre- programmed  teleprompters. He’s able to stand on his own two feet. he comes from solid stock, he’s not self made. As long as he knows that we support him he’ll stay on fire.

  • JungleCogs

    He has my full support.

  • lawngreen

    NPC1 lawngreen Yes, Cruz is good at thinking on his feet. He seems to have pertinent facts fixed in his memory, too. Very impressive.
