Cruz Supporters Leaving ‘Vulgar’ Messages For Peter King

Congressman Peter King said that Ted Cuz is “a carnival barker” who shouldn’t be president. Cruz’s fine and erudite supporters have not met that with the queen’s English. King said young aides, interns and other staffers who answer the phones in his offices are being cursed at by Cruz supporters. “The puerile language used is […]

Senate Floor 2016 Brawl

A Senate fight on the budget broke out, which can easily be a preview of the 2016 presidential race. Four GOP senators are trying to gain the upper hand on the commander-in-chief test — Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham — and their competition was on vivid display as the Senate took […]

Conservatives hope to coalesce behind someone who is not Jeb Bush, as they are now aggressively candidate shopping. The leaders of evangelical and other socially conservative groups say they do not believe that Mr. Bush, the former governor of Florida — whom they already view as the preferred candidate of the Republican Party’s establishment — […]

Senator and future Republican presidential debate fireworks display Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been a hot topic this week since announcing his bid for president, and nowhere has he been hotter than the White House briefing room. Press Secretary Josh Earnest has been careful about commenting on Cruz’s various political positions, but Cruz’s promise to “repeal […]

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is a master at what Al Franken used to call “weasel words” — talking points that are carefully constructed to sound legitimate but really aren’t at all. Come to think of it, Stephen Colbert famously referred to this sort of thing as “truthiness.” Cruz is especially on his game when the […]

There can’t be good time in the Cruz household, unless there is an understanding that it’s fine for the budding candidate to attack Goldman Sachs, his wife’s employer. In an interview with Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect, Cruz was asked by host Mark Halperin whether, on balance, Goldman Sachs was a positive or a negative […]

Good that he’s announced early, so we can see what kind of cuckoo-bird he really is. Speaking to the Texas Tribune on Tuesday, Cruz said that contemporary “global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers.” “You know it used to be it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named […]

On one hand, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) signing up for an Obamacare health insurance policy is fantastic news. As we discussed yesterday, Cruz had a number of options at his disposal after losing his health insurance coverage due to his wife taking a leave of absence from Goldman Sachs. And no, he isn’t required to […]

Arguably the biggest detractor of Obamacare in the Senate, the person who most would like to get rid of it, will soon be a consumer. “We’ll be getting new health insurance and we’ll presumably do it through my job with the Senate, and so we’ll be on the federal exchange with millions of others on […]
