    We could get a liberal in place of the guy. Check out his voting record, which is very strong on gun rights:

    John Cornyn on the Issues

    The point is not so much to condemn but to inform. When he does things that AREN'T right (like cutting any deal with Harry Reid), then the word needs to go around and we need to do everything we can to let his office know. These guys are supposed to work for US, to REPRESENT our beliefs. When they don't, they need to be reminded.

    This particular Congress is easily the worst in my lifetime, possibly ever. It's so easy for these senators to fall into the trap of cutting a deal that ends up hurting Texans. Cornyn is certainly not the worst senator, but he still bears watching.

    Another Ted would be great.

    A Davis, not so great.

    Cruz showed how it was done. Smaller campaign less money, actual conservative (so far). Big win not even close...

    Why put up with these jokers who when the chips are down fold and make arguments to undermine what's best for the country while protecting what they believe their party's best interest...

    Davis is a State Senator. Cruz is a U.S. Senator. Massive difference. She could never win a statewide election in Texas the way the electorate is today.

    Recent uncharacteristic & seemingly contradictory actions by those like Chief Justice John Roberts and Senator Cornyn make some suspect that they may be being blackmailed.

    I have had that thought. I think its more of a sell out for higher positions or more power though.

    It would have cost Cornyn NOTHING to back up Cruz in the vote for cloture. Instead, he voted for it, let Reid put Obamacare right back into the bill and then voted against it. Meanwhile, he spams the hell out of anyone that has an email address or telephone that he voted against Obamacare. Same shell game bullshit that Dewhurst pulled with the TSA Groping Bill. I hope he has as much success in the upcoming Republican Primary as Dewhurst did.

    This is what I don't get, you don't support completely defunding it, but you don't say a dang thing about delaying it?
