Even Crazy Pat Robertson Has Had Enough Of Ted Cruz

Proving that he's just as much a Republican shill as Cruz is an ideologue, Pat Robertson railed on Cruz' recent Senate "error."

The kindest thing one could say about Pat Robertson is that he's a person who espouses extreme views, so one might think he'd be applauding the firebrand approach Ted Cruz takes to just about everything.

But he's not, and that's mostly because Cruz handed Democrats a big gift on Saturday, wrapped in a firebrand's bow. That has Robertson in high dudgeon.

“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.”

Oh, yes. Representing 'the people' is not the point in right-wing politics, for sure. Right-wing politics is all about opposing the Commies and the Kenyan usurper, not representing anyone. Which proves Robertson is just another Republican shill wrapped in a pulpit. Why anyone takes him seriously anymore, I do not know.
