    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz received an eight-minute standing ovation upon his return to Texas this past weekend, despite an extended, hostile campaign from Democrats and the mainstream media to portray him as a dangerous extremist.

    “After two months in Washington, it’s great to be back in America,” Cruz said Saturday to approximately 750 people at an appearance in a San Antonio hotel ballroom, enjoying an eight-minute standing ovation for his dogged efforts to defund or delay Obamacare in the recent continuing-resolution budget fight.

    Cruz also criticized members of his own Senate caucus for ”failing to stand with House Republicans against the train wreck that is Obamacare.”

    I'm reading that donations are pouring in for him as well.

    I've got to admit, he has gone up in my estimation considerably. He's the only real Senate leader who was willing to get behind Boehner and push to cripple the ACA which absolutely has to be done for the good of this nation.

    Still, I like Ben Carson better. I hope he makes his decision public soon. I'm not naive enough to think he's "still considering it" but wants to be sure he has a base upon which to build. He's more plain spoken, more honest, more decisive than anyone in Washington.

    And we have to stick with him, no matter what the wolves will dig up from his past (or present).
