The Texas Wacko in the Senate

ted-cruz-gq-magazine-october-2013-politics-01All ego… no hat…

The Republican Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz is making quite a name for himself and everyone, including members of his own party want him to simply STFU and go away.

Pompous, quirky and currently hell bent on taking down Obamacare, Ted Cruz is a one man Senate wrecking ball, plowing his way through whatever he champions knocking over anything and anyone that gets in his way.

Be careful, because if you get in his way, he might just stomp you with his infamous cowboy boots.

Little more than a month after Cruz was sworn in, Senator Barbara Boxer, a Democrat from California, likened him to Joe McCarthy for his conduct during Chuck Hagel’s confirmation for secretary of defense. Without presenting a shred of evidence, Cruz insinuated that Hagel, a fellow Republican, was on the take from America’s enemies. Because Hagel had declined to reveal the source of a $200,000 payment, Cruz suggested, how do we know it didn’t come from the North Korean government? Or Saudi Arabia’s? Even South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham, also a Republican, called Cruz’s line of inquiry “out of bounds.”

It’s simple really, the man is a complete “wacko” and he’s making quite a spectacle of himself.
