Now that Cruz has been fighting to obstruct efforts to have a conference committee to finalize a budget, he has (a) proven Reid's point that it is Republican obstruction that creates dysfunction on the budget and countless other matters, (b) put more terror into the heart of Cornyn, who dreads the thought of a Texas GOP primary in his 2014 Senate reelection bid and must move even further to the right — which could draw a major Democratic Senate candidate into the race with a better chance of winning — and (c) forced Sen.

Ron Paul (R), who competes with the Social Darwinist atheists of Ayn Rand, to define the Grand Old Party as weird and extremist obstructionists, the big winners are Reid, Senate Democrats, Clinton and several very prominent Texas Democrats whose odds look better of defeating Gov. Rick Perry and John Cornyn, who competes with Cruz while he also competes with Texas Democrats, in 2014.
