Ted Cruz Returns Home to Eight-Minute Standing Ovation

Ted Cruz went home to Texas and received the accolades he deserved for taking a stand against Barack the Terrible and his merry band of free-spending socialists who want to drive our country into bankruptcy and abject poverty:
SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement, returned home to a rousing welcome in Texas on Saturday after his attempt to derail Obamacare with a shutdown of the federal government led to sharp criticism of his tactics as reckless and futile.
"After two months in Washington, it's great to be back in America," Cruz joked in speaking to a crowd of about 750 people in a packed downtown San Antonio hotel ballroom.
Cruz was greeted with an eight-minute standing ovation in an appearance organized by the Texas Federation of Republican Women. People in attendance, many of them wearing red to show their support for keeping Texas a conservative-leaning state, lined up to greet him.
The speech and another talk earlier in the day at a panel in Austin marked Cruz's first public appearance in his home state of Texas since his part in the showdown in Washington over the rollout of Obamacare that resulted in a 16-day shutdown of the federal government that ended on Thursday.
We have Ted Cruze, Mike Lee and Rand Paul to thank for leading the charge and getting the nation to focus for two weeks on the fact that we are on an unsustainable collision course with the economic collapse of this country if we don't get our fiscal house in order. They deserve all the applause we can give them and more.
