LAWMAKER WHO HELPED OUST JOHN BOEHNER BACKS TEXAN’S CANDIDACY
Putting a premium on creative destruction (of the political kind), this website has endorsed the presidential bid of Donald Trump. But we also like what we’ve heard from U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.
Others feel the same way …
Take U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina – who announced his endorsement of Cruz’s candidacy this week.
“We are approaching a historic election that has the potential to fundamentally change our nation as we know it,” Meadows said in a statement. “Ted Cruz is the principled, conservative leader we need in the White House. On issue after issue, Cruz has told the truth and done what he said he was going to do. It may not make him a lot of friends in Washington, but it is exactly what the American people expect of their leaders. Folks across this great nation are sick and tired of the Washington-way, and demand real change. Ted Cruz is the best-positioned leader to restore power to the people and uphold the Constitution at this historic moment in time.”
Cruz referred to Meadows as “a champion for limited government” who has “the battle scars to prove it.”
That’s true. Meadows has been all but disowned by the “Republican” establishment in Washington, D.C. after initiating a successful effort to oust former U.S. Speaker John Boehner of Ohio.
We praised him for those efforts … although obviously the GOP missed a major opportunity in the aftermath of Boehner’s ouster to make transformative change in Washington, D.C.
And America paid the price for their failure …
North Carolina has seventy-seven GOP delegates. It is one of five states to host its GOP primary on March 16.
If Cruz is the nominee NC might be a blue state yet again……
You mean North Canada?
Too bad Cruz doesn’t want to import health care from his country because then he would have my vote.
Yet another meaningless endorsement. Meadows is in a heavily gerrymandered district in the mountains and all of his constituents are likely Cruz supporters anyway. No one in the Piedmont of North Carolina even knows who he is. Charlatans are voting blue these days and Raleigh is always a toss up.
Cruz might appear to be a principled politician, but when it comes to making that sweet, sweet money, he’s just another “republican”.
Why do you keep calling these stooges “outsiders”? Trump and, especially, Cruz are anything but outsiders. Don’t confuse being described as an unbearable asshole by all that come into contact with him with Cruz being a Washington outsider.
The establishment hates Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. That’s all we need to know about two men who have impeccable voting records.
Because they are annoying people who aren’t pleasant to be around. Cruz has no ideas and is only an obstructionist, with nearly zero legislative success…or even attempts at legislation.
Cruz and Constitutional Conservatism 2016!!
Who is Ted Cruz (besides a Cuban/Canadian son of a Castro supporter, who came to America as an illegal immigrant)?
nytimes….motherjones. it appears some need a crutch to comment.
