Ted Cruz received the Tough Tusk award from the Greater Houston Pachyderm Club. There is no doubt this true conservative is tough as nails. His speech to the capacity crowd asked five questions of President Obama. Obama is scheduled to give a spin filled and excuse filled state of the union address in D.C. Senator Cruz electrified the audience by holding Obama accountable, and demanding answers on issues such as Benghazi, Obamacare, IRS scandals, a decreasing economy, and other pressing issues. I was able to chat with the fearless Senator, and I can say that he inspires all of us to stand strong for our principles. His story and his example encourages all of us to keep fighting.
