Ted Cruz says Rand Paul 'Like a Modern Mr. Smith Goes to Washington'




The Weekly Standard

"My only regret," Cruz continued, "is that there are not 99 of your colleagues here today standing with you in defense of the most fundamental principle in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution."

Paul's filibuster has been going on for almost 4 hours, and only recently have other senators joined the floor to ask Paul questions.


Senator Ted Cruz praised fellow Senator Rand Paul on the Senate floor today for his effort to filibuster the selection of John Brennan to head the CIA and the Obama administration refusing to rule out drone strikes on American soil.

Paul has said he will speak for as long as he can, for as long as it takes, and "until the president says, 'no' he will not kill you at a café."
