Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative, sat down with The Blaze founder Glenn Beck on Monday and talked about Cruz’s historic Senate floor calling out of Obama’s Mitch, Surrender Caucus Leader McConnell, for lying to “every” Republican senator about the reauthorization of the cronyist Export-Import Bank.
“Mitch McConnell — the majority leader — had looked me in the eyes — he’d looked every other Republican senator in the eyes and he had promised explicitly that he had not made a deal to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank,” Cruz recalled to Beck. “He looked me in the eyes — he said, ‘There is no deal. I promise you I’ve made no deal whatsoever.” He said that publicly,” Cruz remembered from the June conversation.
Cruz later learned McConnell had in fact struck a deal to please his masters at the U.S. Chamber of Crony Capitalism and that he was stunned when the RINO relics of old, Orrin Hatch, Lamar Alexander and John McCain were outraged, not be McConnell lying, but livid that Cruz would expose McConnell as a liar on the Senate floor. Instead of slapping McConnell with an ethics violation or worse, they attacked Cruz instead.
“The amazing thing is, the old bulls in Washington reacted as I had lit myself on fire and it’s — you know — sort of like the emperor has no clothes. Nobody reacts with any surprise — any astonishment that the majority leader lied to every Republican senator and the American people. That’s not news. What is shocking, SHOCKING [to the GOP establishment] is that anyone would say out loud that he, in fact, lied. Here’s what he said. Here’s his conduct which is directly contrary.
It’s like getting mad at the person who is saying, ‘The emperor has no clothes,’ rather than telling the emperor to ‘put some clothes on.'”
Ted Cruz continues to be a thorn in the side of the establishments in both political parties. He continues to gain appeal from those voters who think corruption, cronyism, and the failure of Republicans to stand up to Obama on any issue, is a deep and growing problem.
