Ted Cruz has been declared enemy #1 by the left. Cruz recently had some harsh words for the establishment GOP, namely he said he doesn’t trust Republicans. That’s quite a statement for a sitting politician to make and shows Cruz is not afraid.
The senior senator from Arizona urged this body to trust the Republicans. Let me be clear: I don’t trust the Republicans, and I don’t trust the Democrats, and I think a whole lot of Americans likewise don’t trust the Republicans and the Democrats because it is leadership in both parties that has gotten us in this mess.
You know, my wife and I have two little girls at home. They’re 5 and 2. When Caroline was born, our national debt was $10 trillion. Today it’s nearly $17 trillion. In her short five years of life, the national debt has grown by over 60%. Madam president, what we are doing to our kids and grandkids I think is immoral. Now, I commend the Democrats in this body for their candor. The Democrats and President Obama have been very explicit it is their intention to raise the debt ceiling and to do so with no conditions whatsoever, just to keep borrowing and borrowing and borrowing money without any structural reforms to fix the problems. That is an intellectually consistent position, I think it is a dangerous position but it is at least candid and that’s the reason why every day for 60 days the Democrats have opposed taking the debt ceiling off the table in this discussion. But unfortunately one of the reasons we got into this mess is because a lot of Republicans were complicit in this spending spree and that’s why so many Americans are disgusted with both sides of this house.
“Wow, is that great stuff,” Pat said, “And true, every word of it. And who else will stand up and say that, and who else will stand up and take on their own party leadership is this who else will do an ‘in your face’ to John McCain? They all cower in fear of him for whatever reason. But Cruz stands up and puts him in his place: ‘You told us to trust Republicans? Well, I don’t. That’s fantastic.”
