Partisan foes now friends?

By Alberto Pupo

Senator Bob Menendez, a Democratic Senator and on the cusp of being charged with corruption by the Department of Justice. Typically news about the downfall of a political nemesis would be something that the Republicans would be ecstatic and cheering endlessly, while pointing fingers and looking for the freshest of Scarlet letters to pin upon his lapel. Yet something strange is happening in this case, instead of the usual round of bob and marcoattacks, the Republican colleagues are actually setting aside partisanship and coming to the defense of the Senator? Is this some sot of miraculous goodwill? Have they set aside all differences? Or is is it that they simply can take this event and have it seem like the Obama Administration is bearing a grudge?

Ted Cruz running for President in 2016? The very notion of it sounds like an April Fools Joke gone horribly awry. The buzz has been going through the digital world, Political pundits (mainly of the Right-Wing variety) Have been pushing this notion of the Freshman Senator from Texas (and Certified Tea-Party Maniac) to actually throwing down the proverbial gauntlet and entering the battle for the Presidency. This does not sound out of the ordinary after all why would this be buzz worthy just another Tea Maniac trying to get into the White House.
