So guess who probably won't be getting a lot of Christmas cards this year from his Republican buddies?Rep. Peter T. King of New York, who has for nearly the entirety of the government shutdown been calling for a vote on a clean CR, had a different takeaway from the events of the past 15 days: The blame lies in the hands of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
“I think it’s important for Republican leaders around the country to speak out against him and neutralize him, otherwise he’ll start to say the same nonsense again in December or January,” King said of Cruz. “He’s the guy that caused this, he’s the guy that caused us defeat, he’s the guy who was a fraud because he never had a strategy to begin with. If we were to let him do it again, it’s our fault.”
The best news? Cruz's owners have seen that the guy is incapable of seeing their agenda through and will probably also turn their backs on him....I certainly don't see him recovering enough to even flirt with a future run at the White House...in fact, his constituents are likely going to reward him at the polls with retirement after this epic fail.
