Senator Ted Cruz was a kind of guest of honor during his visit of top Jewish donors and Israel supporters in NYC and during a lunch he actually said that he's not very conservative, I kid you not. I'd have to say that's the joke of the year.
Mr. Boteach said, “You are arguably the strongest US Senator when it comes to Israel. But if you run, can you win? You’re seen as a champion of the tea party. And the media tends to caricature.”
Mr. Cruz replied, “Historically, the media has had two caricatures of Republicans. We are either stupid or evil.”
“Sometimes both!” volunteered one of the lunchers
“I don’t think I’m all that conservative. And it’s interesting. Reagan never once beat his chest and said ‘I’m the most conservative guy who ever lived.’ Reagan said, ‘I’m defending common sense principles—small businesses, small towns.'”
You almost have to admire his pathological ability to lie about his political beliefs. See, conservative principles are not conservative at all, just common sense principles.
Only truly delusional Tea Party supporters would lap that comment up as truth-just like PJMedia did.
