    If your goal was attracting more attention.  Mission accomplished.  More people today know the name, Ted Cruz than a month ago.

      no doubt of that. It will be negatively. He will try to spin it and twist it and rewrite it, But in the end the facts remain and they are very ugly ones that will not go away.

      •  Right. But right now (0+ / 0-)

        it is mixed since there is a faction that see him as a hero for this.  His (and teapartiers like him) are very short term focused.  Long term - he is already up and over that hill and heading down.  He may not realize it for another 3 years.
