"I rise today in an effort to speak for 26 million Texans and for 300 million Americans..." Opening statement from Senator Ted Cruz as he begins his filibuster/speech (whatever) on the Senate floor.
I'm amazed that so many political pundits are unable to grasp the significance of what Senator Cruz is doing. Most are so stuck in the D.C. bubble that they can only mock and scorn him as a fool on a fool's errand because, after all, he is going to lose this battle. Unaccustomed to witnessing valor and raw courage, they can only attribute Cruz's actions to what they have seen in the past. As a result, their contempt for the American people is reinforced while Cruz's respect for us leaves us in awe.
Watch him speak for us in this brief opening salvo and let him know how much you appreciate him.
The Watercooler is always an open thread.
