Speaker Cruz Strikes Again

Speaker Cruz dropped by the House this week just to let Boehner know who was really in charge. Boehner was all set to pass a limited border bill that would have provided a couple of months’ worth of funding, but Speaker Cruz wanted the bill to allow the government to send children from Central America back more quickly. Cruz rallied his acolytes in the House and denied Boehner enough Republican votes to pass his bill. Boehner called off the vote and Representatives started heading home for their long recess, but then Boehner called them back in case they tried to have the vote on Friday.

Besides the hilarity of Speaker Cruz once again letting Boehner know that he’s Cruz’s bitch, Boehner clearly showed in a Republican leadership statement why his lawsuit against Obama is nothing more than a political stunt:

“There are numerous steps the President can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries,” the statement said.

Good times. Maybe if Boehner gets on his knees and grovels on camera before Cruz, Cruz will let him have his balls back.

    I guess we can just sit back and watch this tragic comedy play out. This is beyond pathetic. It’s become absurd. Someone needs to perform an intervention because the RWNJ are going t hurt themselves. And we all know, that bu defunding hospitals, they will bleed to death without an ER.

    The GOP: Cruz-ified yet again!

    “Cruzification” is what happens when the House Republican leadership is prepared to make a relatively realistic opening offer to counter a Senate Democratic proposal, but then Sen. Ted Cruz (you guessed it!) perambulates over to the House side and demands that conservatives there rise up in defiance. Conference support for the opening offer collapses, the leadership is forced to introduce a more right-wing version, and stalemate endures. Most of the country ends up hating Ted Cruz, but his standing among far-right conservatives only increases.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of folks.

    I’d like to see someone amend the Cruz-favored bill to say that no country’s immigrants, legal or illegal, get any special consideration. Let’s see how much support he gets when special rights for Cubans is at risk.

      How does someone like him get elected? And why does Texas produce so many eye-spinning lunatics?? It will be entertaining if Cruz decides to run for Prez. The birther hypocrisy will be on full display and his father makes Rev Wright look like the Pope. That damn liberal!
