I wonder what it is like to be the most hated politician in the entire country, not that Republican president candidate Ted Cruz would care. His college roommate said that he would vote for anybody but the junior Texas senator. The guy claimed he would open the white pages and pick a name over Cruz. Even all the Republican senators hate him. Wow.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) hates him so much that he said at a fundraiser he would support Bernie Sanders, if Cruz wins the Republican presidential election. I believe him. AP reported:
‘Cruz has become such a pariah that one of his colleagues, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, told supporters at a campaign fundraiser for his own re-election that he would vote for liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders for president before Cruz, according to one person who attended the event. Burr did not appear to be joking, said the person, who demanded anonymity to discuss the private gathering.’
Cruz called former House Speaker John Boehner a “jackass,” and when Boehner was asked about Cruz’s candidacy, Boehner, “replied with an obscene gesture.”
Cruz did not endear himself to his senate body, when he broke every tradition of acceptable behavior during a discussion and yelled across the room to Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell(R-KY):
‘That’s a flat-out lie!’
Yeah, that just isn’t done. Sen. John McCain(R-AZ), who won’t say a bad word about his former vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin(R-AK), really dislikes Cruz and has this to say about him:
‘A wacko bird [whose beliefs are not] reflective of the views of the majority of Republicans’
Then, there was the time that Cruz broke protocol and moseyed over to the House of Representatives, breaking with congressional tradition and infuriating the Republican leadership. You see, he decided to incite a backbench revolt to shut down the government over Obamacare funding. It was a totally unorthodox, inappropriate maneuver, but Cruz didn’t care.
I’ve thought about this a lot. When everybody hates this guy, how did he ever find someone to marry? Oh, wait. His wife Heidi Cruz works for Goldman Sachs. Well, that explains it, or does it?
A police officer responding to a 911 call, found Heidi Cruz sitting next to an expressway with her head in her hands. She was so depressed, that he wrote:
‘I believed that she was a danger to herself.’
This happened right after she quit her high-powered White House job to move to Austin, Texas to be with her state solicitor general husband. I’m just saying.
Republicans have anti-Cruz feelings so extreme, that many would rather lose with Trump than take their chances on having Cruz at the top of the ticket.
I really don’t believe Cruz is the anti-Christ, but I do wonder about that sulfur-smelling cologne of his.
