Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a principled and articulate constitutional conservative, has been a thorn in the side of the establishment — the political ruling class — in both parties.
Some have even given the GOP presidential candidate credit for the downfall of RINO Speaker of the House John “Bendover” Boehner and the exit of establishment stooge Kevin McCarthy (RINO-CA) from the speakership race, as FOX News anchor Bret Baier recently did.
So when Ted Cruz speaks, people may not like it, but they do listen, as he has been hammering GOP leadership for months for “preemptively surrendering” to Obama on every issue, including the continual raising of the debt ceiling, the Obama Iran Deal, funding Obama’s illegal amnesty, funding Obamacare, funding Planned Butcherhood, etc., etc.
On Monday, Ted Cruz revealed who he believes should be the next Speaker of the House, and has you might imagine, it’s someone who is as equally fiery and as constitutionally grounded as he is.
At a campaign event in Iowa on Monday, Cruz said that the next speaker should be constitutional scholar, best-selling author, and top radio talk show host, Mark Levin, known as “The Great One,” to his followers.
“I think the next speaker should be Mark Levin,” Cruz said, who was joined by leading Iowa Republicans Sen. Chuck Grassley and Congressman Steve King, reports the Quad-City Times.
Levin, author of books like The Liberty Amendments and his new best-seller, Plunder and Deceit, has also been a harsh critic of feckless GOP leadership in the House and Senate, using his popular three-hour daily talk show to hammer the likes of RINO leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.
In August of this year, while speaking at the Reagan Library in California, Levin declared war on the RINO GOP Establishment, shouting “Defeat those bastards!”
While Mark Levin could technically be the next Speaker of the House, as the speaker is a rare position that doesn’t require being a political officeholder, or be an elected official, it looks like Levin, who served in the Reagan Administration, is declining the offer.
Thank you, Ted, but I’ll have to pass http://t.co/FoD61MFAMl

Conservatives across the country were exhuberant over the announced departure of Boehner from the speakership, but will not settle for another establishment RINO as his replacement.
