Cruz doesn't rule out filibuster on immigration bill

NEW YORK – Will Sen. Ted Cruz filibuster the immigration bill? He won’t rule out the possibility.

Cruz danced carefully around the question of whether he’ll use a senator’s biggest gun to block the legislation when asked –twice – about his intentions Wednesday night.

“What I have been doing in the course of the Judiciary Committee hearings, and what I expect to do on the floor of the Senate, is to introduce amendment to improve the bill so it actually fixes the problem,” Cruz said when I asked the first time.

The committee voted resoundingly, 13-5, to reject a Cruz amendment that would have stripped path to citizenship from the bill.

1. Of course he will. This asshole desperately wants to

imitate Rand Paul's theatrical 'filibuster' which garnered such admiration from the RW crazies. Tail-Gunner Ted is about nothing so much as making himself the new King of Fools with the teabaggers and this gives him the perfect opportunity to seize Bachmann's crown.
