I’ve been listening to all the so called Conservatives on how Ted Cruz was irresponsible and reckless to stand up with Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio to oppose the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Some have sited Senator Cruz’s reckless tone in calling the Establishment Republicans as the, “Surrender Caucus“.
Peter Robinson in his recent Ricochet podcast titled, “Not Sorry About It”, stated that this will cause him problems with his colleagues in the Senate for his remarks. The problem with this argument is Ted Cruz has had problems with his so-called colleagues in the Senate since he was running for his seat 12 months ago. McLame and his little brother Lindsay Graham have been leaking negative information to the press about Cruz ever since he got there. I believe McConnell’s camp has been caught doing the same thing. You don’t have to go very far on a Sunday morning to find a familiar Republican face on the morning shows, bashing Cruz for how he has handled himself in the Senate. This started long before the government shutdown.
So now that the 17% of the Federal Government, that was closed, is back open and Obamacare is the law of the land, was Ted Cruz right? I’d say yes. You have the Democrats now aligning themselves with the issue of delaying the Mandate for a year. What are the Republicans, who opposed Cruz and the boys, going to do? They can’t turn around and agree with this strategy now can they? After all that was the fight over the Continuing Resolution to begin with.
I believe the talk in the bubble is that Obama would never agree to delaying his signature health care law. They also said that Cruz and the boys had the wrong strategy. They said that these freshman senators don’t understand the process. That this is reckless behavior and will cost us elections in the future.
I’ve got news for the Establishment and all their mouth pieces. By not fighting the fight when it was time to fight, is what is going to cost them elections. Just because certain individuals speak slow and have a large vocabulary doesn’t mean they know what they’re talking about. As Mark Levin said, ” Doing the right thing was the best politics.”
