Senator Cruz Out Trumps Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a stunning, public attack on his own party leader, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying, and said he was no better than his Democratic predecessor and couldn't be trusted.

Cruz, a Texan who is running for president but ranks low in early polling, delivered the broadside in a speech on the Senate floor Friday, an extraordinary departure from the norms of Senate behavior that demand courtesy and respect.


  1. It is rumored that McConnell has kicked Cruz off of the committees he was serving on. Actually, Cruz's committee attendance record is the worst in the senate, so it probably won't make any difference.

    1. McConnell strikes me as the guy who is going to become everything that Reid was and will strive very hard to build his own little fiefdom of power. McConnell, IMO, has little to gain sucking up to a guy who basically says he hates everything about government. I still think McConnell is kind of an asshole, as are most of them, but I think he wants to do more than just sit around doing nothing while waiting for an inevitable mid term wave to put the Democrats back in power. The more doors the McConnell closes behind Cruz as he flits about the country fluffing Trump, the more Cruz will be isolated when he predictably shuts down his campaign to return to washington and do what eve it is he did before running for president
