Can our country honestly abide one more slick-talking lawyer politician who is the ultimate DC insider? The polished, measured monotone words coming out of the mouth of Ted Cruz make me shudder. His supporters love his rhetoric. He’s so classy, they say. He’s so civilized, they say.
All I see is a globalist that talks the talk of conservatives, but doesn’t walk the walk.
As far as the Senator from Texas’ political record not matching his supposedly tough stances on immigration and economy, I’ll re-post a comment from an American Thinker article today. Hat tip to Caroline 1771:
I’ve looked behind the curtain and found what you obviously are ignoring. No, someone who wants your life would:
2012 Heidi Cruz joined Council on Foreign Relations to change it.
2013 Cruz joined National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee to change it.
2012 Cruz: I am the only candidate to stand up to….
2015 Cruz: I am the only candidate who has stood up to…..
Always avoiding the natural follow-up, “but what have you accomplished”?
