Mike Lee Opens Up About 'Demeaning', 'Unfair', 'All Out Attack' On Him And Ted Cruz By GOP

by Noah Rothman | October 4th, 2013

In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) opened up about a closed-door meeting he recently had with the Republican Senate colleagues in which both he and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) were “attacked.” Lee said that the terms used by his fellow Republicans to attack the two Senators were “demeaning.” He asked why, given that the details of the meeting were leaked to the press, that his GOP colleagues did not reveal their identities.

“There was allegedly a Republican Senate Conference meeting earlier this week where your colleague, Ted Cruz, took a lot of slings and arrows,” Hewitt said.

“Normally, I don’t comment at all on closed-door meetings between Republican Senators,” Lee said. “It’s a pretty strict rule we have.”

I'm a Ron Paul guy. But I

I'm a Ron Paul guy.
But I have been watching enough CSPAN, and I do so to pay attention to the players, and then go back and study the media spin, so I can pick ignorant people apart...
and I have to say that I have noticed not only the Rand Pauls, but the Mike Lee's, the Ted Cruz, the Jordan, the Chaffetz, even Congressman Issa. There are a few more, but this isn't the Republican Party that disgraced the people under Bush, no. Well, before I make that last statement, maybe I should go look at their voting records.

Be Your Own Media!!!

It all comes down to the voting records

That is where the rubber meets the road.

Some people think it is okay to push even that. "Oh, this vote was going to pass anyway..."

don'tfundit.com Add your name to Senator Lee's letter that he

will be sending to Senator Reid. He said he has over 2 million people and I think we here at DP can help increase the number in no time. I just added my name to the list. ( : During the interview above is when Lee mentioned this website.



for Congress members who do the right thing, which is represent the people!

Senators Like Mike Lee

Are few and far between. A man of principle through and through.

Hear, hear!

Lee shines head and shoulders above all others in DC right now. His performance and the words out of his mouth during the all-nighter a couple weeks ago and since have been top shelf. Others don't seem as pure and simply focused on the one core issue - ObamaCare. It's Lee's style of focus that will make its stoppage a success.

Heard, Heard!


It's the totality of what he says, and the constitutional context he lays out that make him shine. Nearest thing to Ron Paul I've seen in Congress, so far.
