Don't know if Cruz is an alcoholic or a homosexual but he is an idiot demagogue.

Ted Cruz is no idiot. At age 42, he has just about the most accomplished professional resume of anyone in the senate.

I didn't bother with the link, but I'm sure Ted appreciates the compliment. After all Joe McCarthy was correct.

I'd like to pull for Cruz, but blocking Hagel is a bad move.

Cruz is absolutely the worst demagogue I've ever seen in the Senate which is amazing when you consider the fact that he's been in office for barely a month. I can't believe Ron Paul actually endorsed this guy, since he seems to represent everything that Paul despises.

Whether you disagree with Cruz or not, the idea of a professional TV commentator drawing comparisons to McCarthy, Hitler or Satan is intellectually lazy.

How so? Hagel is nothing more than thinly veiled "Republican" cover for Obama's goal of a massive reduction of U.S. military capability.

What do you think of Cruz' penchant for asking do-you-still-beat-your-wife type questions and deliberately editing a video of a Hagel interview in a dishonest way in order to mislead people about Hagel's views?

Are you a fiscal conservative? If your answer is yes, how do you propose that we balance the budget without cutting military spending?

Can't make a judgment because I didn't see any of it. I hate watching hearings.
The only things I know about Cruz is that National Review likes him and he was a champion debater in college.

Very McCarthy like.

But McCarthy was pro American against agents of influence in our government in his self-aggrandizing way, Cruz is an agent of AIPAC a lackey of a foreign power. McCarthy was a degenerate but a superior American.

The American Conservative's Daniel Larison says that Rand Paul has been permanently damaged by the Hagel filibuster.

This, and I'm also going to assume he is pro-Israel, since trackfan and CT are together in this thread.

Those aren't sufficient grounds to block a nominee. And why would spending cuts be so appalling to a Tea Party conservative?
