Ted Cruz Blasts Senate GOP For 'Bombing Our Own Troops'

Ted Cruz Blasts Senate GOP For 'Bombing Our Own Troops'

Yesterday, in a press conference during the deal announced by Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz took several swipes at his fellow Republican Senators, placing the blame on them for not backing the craziness of the shutdown. Later, on the Mark Levin radio show, he upped his rhetoric. Near the end he compared it to an "air force bombing our own troops".

Where this went off track is when it came to the Senate and Senate Republicans didn’t stand united alongside House Republicans. Senate Republicans, instead, divided in half and began going on television, going on radio, going everywhere and blasting the House Republicans saying ‘we cannot win’, ‘this will fail’, ‘theres no way to win’ and when you’ve got half the Senate Republican caucus firing their cannons at the House Republicans, it sabotages the effort.

When Cruz originally blamed some Senate Republicans for the failure I figured that had to be a mistake, something said in the heat of the moment, but it turns out it's a deliberate part of his strategy to win over the ultra conservative base of the republican party.
