Cruz's strategy is to do what he thinks is good for Ted Cruz, just the same way that Texas Senator Davis did what was good for Davis. They both filibustered and got WAY more famous. Lots of people who had never heard of either of them now know who they are.
She got so famous that she's running for governor. There's talk of him running for president. I think they are both long shots, but they both did what they did at least partly for their own benefit.
To those who say that Ted Cruz doesn't have a strategy, I say you are wrong. His strategy is to do what he thinks is good for Ted Cruz. He's taking care of himself which is what most politicians do.
..."Incompetency in both houses of Congress."... That's the most accurate thing anyone has posted all week.

I know there are some good people in our Congress, but the "bad apples" are causing public opinion to turn against not only Congress but our government as a whole.
Ted Cruz is one of the bad apples whose brand of politics is like a cancer afflicting our entire Congress. However, as we know, there are other Tea Partiers that were elected before Cruz showed up and took charge.
You are right though...Cruz is for Cruz. That's typically the way with bullies. They only think of themselves and Cruz especially lacks the empathy and compassion that is necessary to be an all around Senator. He doesn't give a damn about anyone except himself. Maybe his disciples in the House will come to recognize that soon.
If Cruz and his Tea Party followers worked for a corporation, they would have reached their level of incompetency and been weeded out long time ago.
