Ted Cruz: Senator's Cancun trip criticized by Texas GOP congressman: 'When a crisis hits my state...

Source: CNN

I'm not going to go on some vacation'

Texas GOP Rep. Michael McCaul on Sunday delivered a pointed rebuke of Sen. Ted Cruz following his much-criticized trip to Cancun, Mexico, as a winter disaster rocked Texas last week.

"Look, when a crisis hits my state, I'm there. I'm not going to go on some vacation," McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs committee, told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" Sunday.

"I know Mr. Cruz called it a mistake and he's owned up to that, but I think that was a big mistake and as for me, I was on the ground trying to help my people out and my constituents, and that's what we should be doing in a time of crisis," he added.

McCaul's comments join a raft of disapproval aimed at Cruz since he was spotted on a plane headed to Cancun while millions in his home state were left without power or water. After returning to Houston on Thursday afternoon, Cruz told reporters outside his home it was "obviously a mistake" and that "in hindsight I wouldn't have done it."

1. Texas

State house should censure him. State houses seem to be fond of doing that of late.

2. But what did McCaul do? Why do they never get specific?

His tweets contain not especially helpful general information.

4. He is. So he sat in his mansion high on the hill, the house with the "unrepairable" water leak that

Wastes so many gallons of water each day while the rest of us melt snow for our household water.

Though we probably live half of a very large state away because of gerrymandering.

7. They forever have burned a hole in my memory!! Much like my memory of poor Ted (Cancun) Cruz forced

by his young daughters to abandon the people of Texas in their hour of need to fly to Cancun to escape the harsh conditions in Texas.

18. My Trumpvangelical boss's wife said it didn't matter that Cruz

went to Cancun, because they're "always working". I'm sure she said the same about Trump's constant golfing. The thing is, it is elitist and it looks back. I hate Ted Cruz, but I thought he was smarter than that.
