Says Kathleen Sebelius Should Resign

Senator Ted Cruz returned to Texas this weekend to a reception fit for a rock star after the long and bruising effort to defund Obamacare.

While the media and many of his fellow Republicans continue to wring their hands in the aftermath of the government shutdown, Cruz remained committed to the effort to halt Obamacare and called for the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

In an extensive interview with CNN following an enthusiastic reception by 800 Republican supporters, Cruz said the effort to defund Obamacare could have succeeded if Senate Republicans had remain united and backed their colleagues in the House.

    Re that Texas Republican Women reception for Senator Cruz:  Eat your heart out, John McCain.  
    You will never get a reception like that in Arizona — unless perhaps you change your registration to Democrat.

    1. dleeper47 Can anyone think of another politician who is as smooth, easy-going, smart, and ready-to-go with answers as Cruz?

    “Rockstar”? is an understatement. There were no woman fainting, no mcdonald employee hyperventilating,  no tingling up the legs from the press…He is just did what he promissed to his constituents.
