Ted Cruz’s Campaign

24 September 2013 |permalink | email article

On Fox News last Sunday Chris Wallace’s demeanor and the bafflement of an entire nation was about what Cruz hoped to accomplish with his flawed campaign to defund Obamacare. There’s Cruz’s sickly look after Wallace recites derisive statements about him from fellow Republicans and he’s reminded that even in his party and even on Fox, the distaste for him is robust. The best part in the belly laugh when Cruz is asked to respond to these digs. “There are lots of folks in Washington that can choose to throw rocks,” he says, “and I’m not going to throw rocks. Because he’s nobler than that. Please. Cruz has been casting stones since he first moved into his Senate office nine months ago. His quarry is bottomless. In terms of Chuck Hagel’s confirmation as secretary of defense, Cruz wondered aloud whether Hagel had taken honorariums from countries hostile to the United States. He went on to lecture Dianne Feinstein, a Senate elder whom he condescendingly lectured about the Constitution . The Texas senator clumsily pursues his dearest cause: himself.
Now, as it turns out, right-wing extremist Sen. Rand Paul has joined Cruz’s team.
