Here is Cruz speaking with Rush Limbaugh today on what he was trying to accomplish (and on what many of his colleagues have given up on trying to accomplish). A sample (Cruz is talking about some of his fellow Republicans):
I don't know that you could -- as bad as you might think it is, and listen, these are good men and women. I respect them. I like them. Many of these are my friends, but they've been here a long time, and they're beaten down, and they don't believe we can win. They don't believe it can happen, and the answer they say on every issue is, "No, we can't do it. We can't do it."Update: Chris "Tingle-Pins" Matthews views Ted Cruz as an enemy of the state. So you know Cruz is doing something right.
