The folks over at Babalu are gushing over their new found friend Cuban-American Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. After all he did vote against Senate rule changes to modestly curb filibusters, aid for Superstorm Sandy victims and the Violence Against Women Act. He also was one of only three "no" votes against Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John Kerry's nomination to be secretary of State. And he publicly skewered President Obama’s nominee for Defense secretary, former Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel. Lets hope he is not around if another Sandy ever visits South Florida or the coast of Texas.
