Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Cruz to nowhere edition

Good morning, everyone!

As a Texan, I’m proud to be from the state that brought the world Molly Ivins and Wendy Davis. Unfortunately, we also brought the world Gohmert Pyle and Ted Cruz (leaving Canada out of it for the moment).

So – the first in a series of Carnival Cruzes –Cruz Amuses!

The Senate easily overcame Wednesday’s first hurdle to a fizzling GOP strategy to strip funding for President Obama’s healthcare law in exchange for keeping the government running.

Top Republicans are now for a new — more modest — way to chip away at the Affordable Care Act.

100-0? After all that, Cruz voted to move the measure forward?

Am I missing something?

This was NOT the cloture vote Cruz wants to stop!

These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.

That will come Friday or Saturday.

(Seems to be a lot of confusion on this…)

Cruz voted for this? So, what was the point?
Carmen Ghia: “Keep searching around – you’ll find it.”

I have an uncomfortable feeling this whole thing was about maximum TV time for Cruz and a possible Presidential run. From what I’m seeing here, it’s working.
