re: House GOP pissed at Ted Cruz, call him "leader of a secret cabal of leftists"

Another senior GOP leadership aide took a shot at Cruz declining to say whether he would filibuster the bill, telling CNN,


Guys, guys. I have another source that says the Democrats are in talks with NAMBLA and are going to introduce a law to make pedophilia legal.

The source wants to remain unnamed, because someone might figure out his alter, if named.

re: House GOP pissed at Ted Cruz, call him "leader of a secret cabal of leftists"

Of course, Cruz’s acknowledgement of the near-impossibility of passing a defunding bill through the Democratic-controlled Senate is an accurate reading of political reality. But House Republicans didn’t care; they were apoplectic with Cruz not only for laying the responsibility for defunding on them, but for making them seem weak. “If Cruz doesn’t help us in the Senate to pass a defunding bill, we’ll end up having to pass a normal CR,” complains a veteran House Republican. “It’ll be pathetic, but I expect him to slam us for it.”

House insiders say a handful of House Republicans cursed Cruz in the cloakroom on Wednesday, and a leadership source says angry e-mails were exchanged among GOP staffers who consider Cruz to be a charlatan. “Cruz keeps raising conservatives’ hopes, and then, when we give him what he wants, he doesn’t have a plan to follow through,” an aide fumes. “He’s an amateur.” Another aide says, “Nancy Pelosi is more well-liked around here.”

The retreat by Cruz has led to public questioning from House Republicans about his motives and political acumen, not to mention joking speculation that he may be part of a vast and devious liberal conspiracy to undermine conservatives.

"Cruz is the leader of a secret cabal of leftists that are seeking control of the conservative movement," quipped one senior House Republican leadership source. "Their aim is to force the party to take on suicidal missions to destroy the movement from within."




They all need thrown out but a handful. They exempted themselves from ObamaCare.

re: House GOP pissed at Ted Cruz, call him "leader of a secret cabal of leftists"
quote:

"Harry Reid will no doubt try to strip the defund language from the continuing resolution, and right now he likely has the votes to do so," Cruz said in a statement. "At that point, House Republicans must stand firm, hold their ground, and continue to listen to the American people."


I don't understand how House Republicans are mad about this. Cruz isn't saying "give up, it won't work". He is simply stating fact that the odds are against them, based on Reid's tendency to kill the bills the House passes. He then says in the face of opposition, they need to remain firm and stand by their principles as long as the American people support it.

All this is, is a bunch of bull shite by some establishment Repubs that are scared of Cruz and want to discredit him.

Peter King says Cruz should shut the frick up.

quote:

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) railed against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and House Republicans on Thursday for pushing a continuing budget resolution aimed at defunding Obamacare, saying a government shutdown is not an option.

King argued on CNN that if the Republican budget resolution passes the House and fails in the Democrat-controlled Senate, it may actually help ease the partisan divide.

“I would just say if anything good comes from all of this, when Ted Cruz and Rand Paul or Mike Lee fail in the Senate next week, maybe finally we Republicans will have ended their influence,” King said.

“We as House Republicans should stop letting Ted Cruz set our agenda for us,” King continued. “He should stay in the Senate, keep quiet. If he can deliver on this, fine. If he can’t, he should keep quiet from now on and we shouldn’t listen to him.”

I don't know how a guy who can't even get along with folks in his own party can even get the nomination, much less be elected President.

it has to be pretty awesome to be Ted Cruz right now

he's a Senator who has been around for about 2 years and has become a major force....and the GOP can't stand it

all this shite does is establish the utter anxiety and fear of the GOP. he's got to be loving it

I agree in principle and good conscience of defunding ObamaCare but I'm also smart enough to realize that the house bill has no chance of passing the senate much less the president actually signing it.

Democrats know ObamaCare is a pile of shite but they're not there yet in admitting that it needs to be repealed because that would require them to admit they were wrong and that's a cardinal sin in the game of politics. It would also make Obama the lamest duck ever and democrats still like the power they got in the White House.

Obamacare is going to be such a disaster that the republicans should do as many symbolic things as possible to show they tried to stop it.

It won't help nationwide as we now have been over come by the free loaders but the reps are going down fighting.

Good for them.
