PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BLASTS “REPUBLICANS” IN CONGRESS

|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas offered his sharpest criticism yet of the “Republican” party – a.k.a. the party whose presidential nomination he is currently seeking.

During an impassioned one-hour speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Cruz ripped into the GOP leadership in Washington, D.C. – especially outgoing U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner – for being beholden to the same special interests as Democrats.

“We keep winning elections but the people we put in office don’t do what they said they’re going to do,” Cruz said, adding that the GOP leadership is “quite competent and willing to fight. The question is what they’re fighting for.”

Sound familiar?  It should … we’ve been screaming all this since before Cruz was elected.

Cruz also noted that U.S. president Barack Obama has a “blank check” when it comes to dealing with the GOP-controlled Congress – not to mention a nuclear option he can invoke in the event he doesn’t get what he wants.

“President Obama simply has to utter the word ‘shutdown’ and Republican leadership runs for the hills,” he said.

While the GOP “reflexively surrenders,” Democrats are “relentless” according to Cruz – “willing to crawl over broken glass with a knife between their teeth to fight for their principles.”

One area where the GOP leadership has shown no hesitation is attacking those lawmakers who have the audacity to stand for the things the GOP claims to support.

“It’s Republican leadership that leads the onslaught attacking conservatives,” Cruz said.

That’s because big “Republican” donors aren’t on board with the GOP platform.

“The people writing the checks agree with the Democrats,” he said, claiming they view rank-and-file GOP voters as nothing but “hicks and rubes.”

What prompted Cruz’s rebuke of his own party?  U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell – who became “majority” leader when the GOP gained control of the Senate last November – refused to grant a recorded vote on Cruz’s effort to defund government-subsidized abortion provider Planned Parenthood.

Cruz referred to McConnell’s refusal as “unprecedented procedural trick” designed to keep GOP Senators from having to be held accountable.

We agree.

Cruz isn’t saying anything new, but what he’s saying needs to be said.

i think feckless rubes would be more accurate, but that would be two words the rank and file would have to look up and that is really asking them to think too much.

Cruz rising would be FITSNews WORST nightmare. Cruz is diametrically opposed to Moderate-Quishy-Liberal-Tarians. He is DIRECT about Conservatism, and he slaps the shit out of Liberals, with no fear. And TRUE Conservatives – the people who make the country work – LOVE him…

If Cruz is empowered, it would expose FITSNews when he began bashing him – using the Democrats’ arguments- as FITS does w/ all Republicans…

Cruz would make FITSNews look like the lying fraud it is.

Cruz is obviously unqualified to be a US Senator, let alone President. He is bitching about McConnell not allowing a recorded vote on Cruz’s effort to defund Planned Parenthood, which would be a waste of time, since Sen. Cochran’s Amendment 2669 to do the same thing failed a recorded cloture vote 47-52 on 24 September. Eight of Cruz’s Republican colleagues voted against cloture, so even Mitch knows which way the wind blows.

So, yesterday the Senate approved a spending bill to avert a Wednesday shutdown 77-19 without fighting over Planned Parenthood. Scott and Graham were on the losing side for the vote postponing the shutdown fight until December.

Since 1973, 50 millions abortions have been done. Over 4,000 unborn babies are killed everyday in the U.S., and that equals about 1 unborn baby killed every 20 seconds. PP does 900 abortions everyday. Abortions done for rape, incest, and threat to the mother’s life account for 1% of the 1.5 millions abortions done each year in the United States. Abortion should never be legalized so that children could be killed out of personal choice. Killing a child inside or outside the womb is murder no matter the reason.

And you worked for these people as an advocate of infanticide? It defines WHO you are-not even human.Hitler-like.

This is hilarious, and totally at odds with reality as a description of what happened to Cruz last night. In the Senate, courtesy provided to a Senator, even to make a fool of themselves, is historically granted in *every* circumstance. Unless, you’ve been exposed as a complete, and utter buffoon, and whose requested activity serves no purpose to advance the cause of the Majority Party, or the country. In this case, so Cruz can raise money for his failed Presidential campaign.

Cruz was rebuked, spanked, dismissed and laughed out of the Senate last night. And here today, we read on Fits, that he’s telling it like it is. If Cruz had any, even an ounce of credibility, they would have allowed him to continue to speak, and allowed a vote.

Cruz is a manipulator of the low-information voter, and that’s about it.
———————————————————————————————
“Ted Cruz can’t even get a protest vote in the Senate anymore.

On Monday night, Cruz’s colleagues ignored his attempt to disrupt
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s efforts to fund the government
without attacking Planned Parenthood. In an unusual rebuke, even fellow
Republicans denied him a “sufficient second” that would have allowed him
a roll call vote.

Then, his Republican colleagues loudly bellowed “no” when Cruz
sought a voice vote, a second repudiation that showed how little support
Cruz has: Just one other GOP senator — Utah’s Mike Lee — joined with
Cruz as he was overruled by McConnell and his deputies.

In reality, it’s not Senate procedure that stymied Cruz on Monday
night. Republicans have grown tired of Cruz pushing proposals that he
knows McConnell and other Republicans will never back, like defunding
Planned Parenthood in a spending bill, then criticizing McConnell for
not taking up the plan even as he uses the fight to bolster his
presidential campaign as Washington’s consummate outsider.

Cruz’s internal criticism of his leadership is what animates his
presidential campaign, but his colleagues appear to be no longer
listening. Cruz was allowed only to speak for an hour on Monday night
under Senate rules, and no one was itching to grant him an exception.”

Setting – March 2017, Ted Cruz goes to a large lobby on K-Street to ask for money for his 2018 re-election campaign. The receptionist leads him to a conference room. A few well dressed, attorney-like lobbiests walk in, carrying their Starbucks. They ask Cruz if he’d like a water, Cruz says no. Cruz is looking at his leather folder, going over his talking points to try and get a couple hundred grand for his re-election. “Gentlemen, are we ready to start?” he asks. “Just a second, we’ve got a new associate joining us today,” they say. “Great,” says Cruz. The door starts to open, Cruz stands, ready to shake the hand of a new lobbiest that can help him. He looks up, and in walks – – – – – – John Boehner. Oooops. No money for you.

At the 2012 Democratic convention Bill Clinton said it wasn’t that the Republican have problems with math, it’s that they have problems with arithmetic.

And, sure enough, here’s affirmative action Cuban Ivy Leaguer Ted Cruz showing that he still doesn’t understand that people like him are a minority in the Republican caucus in the Senate, a minority in the Republican caucus in the House and a real minority among all Americans across the country…he can’t do his arithmetic.

And, majority rules…as much as the Republicans have subverted it since 2009, at some points the majority rules.
