Ted Cruz Blasted by The GOP; In All-Out War Against His Own Conservative Colleagues

It's tough being the new kid in town. Especially if you have an ego the size of Ted Cruz's, and the complete recklessness and immense disregard for all fellow Americans in trying to force your own country to shut down it's government.

The rumors of Ted Cruz's fallout with the rest of his party began last week when Fox News Sunday's host Chris Wallace informed the public that as soon as Senator Ted Cruz was booked as a guest for their program, Wallace began receiving "unsolicited" research against Cruz. The research was being peddled to him, not by Democrats, but by fellow Republicans.

But now with a hugely toxic government shutdown in their hands and only themselves to blame for it, Republicans are no longer holding back on their animosity against the junior Senator.

POLITICO is reporting Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed out at the tea party freshman for helping create a government shutdown crisis without any idea of how to end it.

2. I Thought He Was A Nutcase Before The 2012 Election

I thought Calgary Cruz was a nutcase before the 2012 election. Of course, I'm a Democrat.

I wonder how many primary and general-election Texas Republican voters were paying even the cursory attention I was to Ted Cruz's positions before they trooped into the polls to vote for him.
