    "Strongly recommends" vs. "prohibits".

    Surely even you know the difference in these two statements?

    Besides the obvious points I mentioned before, remember all those airlines and agencies that have to deal with the FAA on a regular basis to fly into our country. No chance they felt any pressure to follow suit or be harassed by federal agencies like others that have opposed Obama, right? Obama's abuses of federal agencies prior to this should totally be discounted and he should be given every benefit of the doubt when dealing with those who don't follow his every command (see BeBe), right? Well it will all be cleared up when the FAA proves nothing came from the WH on this and it was purely their experts that made this call. Should be easy enough right? Let me know when that happens. Your feigned ignorance of just how this admin operates is staggering...

    you guys want Obama to take action, he did. If he hadn't, you'd be claiming he was leading from behind.

    I would have to agree with Cruz. This Administration would love to keep the Israelis from completely wiping out Hamas. The media won't even report that Hamas is using kids as human shields. There have been reports that some members are running down the streets with babies while shooting at soldiers. It would be nice to see them push Hamas into sea and completely destroy them. This is the only for way for long lasting peace in that region and a better place for Palestinians. The U.S. Needs to stay out of this and let Israel do her thing.

    Hamas has a history of staging casualties. They will take 30 to 40 kids and go into a building, hang up some IVs and start running around with crying babies while being filmed. A lot of times most of the kids you see in their chaotic video shots are not even scratched. They will also make kids look injured. They are the lowest scum on the earth,

    After reading the replies, Cruz must just be articulating what the base believes...

    Seems like a(n) (over)reaction to what happen in Ukraine more than anything. After seeing comments like this I really do hope Cruz wins the GOP nomination, if only for comedy's sake.

    On Morning Joe yesterday,Bill Kristol asked rhetorically if Kerry had called the FAA. Joe Klein, liberal Time Magazine editor said "That's a fair question." Other panelist (Mika,Barnicle.Heilman and Sam Stein, all certified Obama worshippers ), citing Daniel Henninger's column "Obama to world: Drop Dead" in the WSJ Thursday, while saying that the column was"a little over the top"agreed that Obama is basically only concerned with politics and doesn't care about the US's role in the world.You think the libbies are waking up?

    Cruz is a nut. Not sure some of our members caught that. He exemplifies why the Rep race for the WH was such a mess in 2012.

    Cruz strikes me as a very articulate and informative man. Maybe you should really listen to him instead of listening to what the liberal media cherry picks from him.

    I have listened to him. I have also listened to Pelosi and Reid. Throw em in a bag and shake it. It's a tossup which one will fall our first. They all are examples of what is wrong with our politicians. If the parties ever decide to start marginalizing the nuts something may actually get accomplished.
