They Wouldn’t Act This Way If Ted Cruz Weren’t Putting Points on the BoardSubmitted by JO4RP on Tue, 05/07/2013 - 07:13
The rules have been stacked against conservatives and Ted Cruz isn’t playing by those rules. He’s fighting for freedom. We should thank him. His efforts are not alone either. He is tag teaming with Rand Paul and Mike Lee. The three of them are putting the rest of the Senate GOP in the awkward position of finally having a triumvirate by which to be measured.
It was easy when it was just Jim DeMint. They could all largely ignore one man. But that one man worked real hard to get three new young men into the Senate who are playing by new rules. And they are winning in the court of public opinion, they are winning behind the scenes, and their efforts are forcing the rest of the conference to fight with them or be exposed as the schmucks they are.
If Ted Cruz were not putting points on the board, the Wall Street Journal, John McCain, Bill Richardson, Harry Reid, and the rest would not be crying foul. Ted Cruz is winning and they don’t like it that he won’t play the game they designed to marginalize guys like Cruz.
