Too much Cruz news? Bear with me, it’s July of 2013 and I’m talking about an election that happens in November of 2016 so the news picking is slim.

Over the weekend at the fourth-annual Western Conservative Summit, Ted Cruz took 45% of the vote giving him an easy first place of the 504 straw poll votes cast. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker took second place with 13% while Rand Paul and Allen West shared the third place spot garnering 9% of the vote.

Report from the Huffington Post:

The star speaker of the conservative conference, Cruz garnered 45 percent of the 504 votes cast and handily capturing the lead in the straw poll over Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — who delivered the keynote address at the summit and gathered 13 percent of the vote. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) and former Florida Rep. Allen West (R) both tied for third with only 9 percent of the vote.

Paul didn’t attend the summit while West was a featured speaker on Sunday.

So, with this level of support, would Cruz consider making a run for the 2016 GOP nomination for president?

“At this point, 100 percent of my focus is on the U.S. Senate,” Cruz said over the weekend, The Washington Times reports. “And the reason is simple: The Senate’s the battlefield. The Senate is where these fights are being fought,” Cruz added. “So I’m devoting my time, number one, to trying to stand up for free-market principles and the Constitution.”

Cruz, who spoke Saturday at the summit, drew standing applause for his plan to rewrite the nation’s tax code, abolish the IRS and defund Obamacare, The Colorado Independent reported.

Clearly Cruz is striking the right chords with conservatives in the Republican Party base. Time will tell whether he can roll this support into running a serious campaign in 2016. For the record, Herman Cain won the same straw poll in 2011 and fizzled out in 2012.

  1. Cruz’ claim to fame is being the Cuban fighting the other Cuban about the fate of the Mexicans. But it goes beyond that. Cruz also fights Rubio for the sake of fighting. He recently attacked Rubio, who wanted to put some kind of limit on the American Empire.

    Do we really want Bush’s buddy’s finger on the red button?

    Christian Post says we should rule the world and obey Israel:

    But beyond the pettiness and warmongering, there’s the basic idea that the GOP has been birther-crazy for five years, and even Wikipedia knows this guy was born in Alberta, Canada, of a Cuban father who once supported Fidel and only recently became an American citizen.

    Do we really want the whole Birther thing for another 3-1/2 to 8 years?

  2. Are there NO Real Americans left in Congress and Senate?!

    Or are they all cowards?!

    Are both these bodies polluted with anti-Constitutional and American-hating scumbags, that NOT a Single ONE of them will START IMPEACHMENT proceedings against the creature that has usurped for the first time the US Presidency — Barry Sotero, or Hussein Obama….whatever its real name is???!!!

    We all know the charges — but, no-one in Congress or Senate has the guts to be a Real American, and challenge this Usurper of The White House according to Verified Records!

    Contact your Congressmen and Senators, and TELL them this is the reason Barrack Hussein Obama MUST be IMPEACHED! And if you fail to support its impeachment, don’t expect to be reelected!

    The BO lied on all its promises — and once elected did the EXACT OPPOSITE of what it said. THAT’S PERJURY! Also, the BO NEVER supplied its original Birth Certificate — but had a fake published!..

    WHO IS THIS Barry Sotero or Hussein Obama, remains a question to THIS DAY!

  3. IMPEACH Barack Hussein Obama — it stumbles-and-bumbles AND STUTTERS (which is usual for this political creature to try and come up with an answer it is not prepared for) while trying to decide what it is: A DICTATOR or NOT….LOL!

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VIDEO THAT MAKES THE CASE FOR IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT !!!

    Time to IMPEACH — make this SUPERB 15 minute video viral.

    Also, nice exposure of Hitlery Clinton!

    If any of you here are true Americans, give this post a thumbs up.

    Thank you!

    p.s. Don’t worry about the NSA (Nazis Spying on Americans) profiling you, they’ve been spying on you illegally for years, and the only way to stop them now is to have Obama IMPEACHED!
