Okay kids, it’s wingnut on wingnut crime time again. And this time, we have infamous Christian con man Pat Robertson taking on the relatively new political con man Ted Cruz. Like a whole lot of other conservatives, Robertson blasted Cruz for his grandstanding in the Senate over the weekend, which actually hurt their cause:
“I tell ya’, this Ted Cruz, a lot of people in Texas just think he’s wonderful and I don’t want to rain on their parade but what he did was this, he held the Senate open by his delaying tactics and in the process Harry Reid says, ‘Oh, we’ve got some time, let’s rush through some appointees.’ So they started approving one after the other, left-wing appointments that Barack Obama had made that a more deliberative process would’ve held up, that was what Mr. Cruz gave us,” Robertson said.
“This bomb-throwing stuff and ‘I’ll be a lone wolf and I’m the man in the Senate who is going to be like Jimmy Stewart and I’m just going to Washington to represent the people,’ it’s nonsense.”
But it’s what happens when you value ideological purity over absolutely everything else.
