I mean the irony is rich - of all places to go when infrastructure in the so-called most independent greatest American state to the Trumphumpers - he flees to Mexico, a nation scorned by the Trumphumping crew that is full of mostly bad people - when shit breaks down in the USA :D :D :D

You can't make this shit up.

Honestly, what are you expecting a state senator to do during this? Much more of a locality thing IMO.
not encourage sedition AND then flee your state in the matter of two months. If Cruz is useless in a state of emergency, why should the people of Texas reelect him?

Fox is moving towards full blown Cruz defense mode and if you check their article conversations are filled with idiots posting what could Cruz have done. Maybe use your vast network to organize senior wellness checks, setup dial for $ donations for emergency shelters or any number of things a promenant civil servant should do in a time of crisis. What a bunch of brainwashed fools.

How about STAY with your constitutes until water/power have been restored, any US senator carries considerable clout
to help get important things in place, procedures started. This bag of shit gave zero fucks about the people that voted him into his position.

Because he has a R beside his name. I mean in reality did people actually like Ted Cruz the person more than Beto or whoever he ran against? Probably not, but at least he's not a heathen democrat :p

If a single democratic politician from any state left during a time of crisis, you'd be all up in their shit like there was no tomorrow, and I'd be like fuck them too.

The idiot mayor of Austin left during Thanksgiving or whatever, after telling people not to travel, and we called him an idiot for that. Ditto with Newsome having a private dinner party at the French Laundry, even though it was a private room.

In the meantime Beto has helped organize tons of calls to distressed citizens and getting them aid and AOC has just raised over a million dollars in aid to go directly to Texans.

You are nothing but a hack, as usual.

Fox will cover for old fat Teddy. Did you see the gut on this gut, and that fat Trump ass during his airport escapee? I have just one word for Texas... WHY? WHY TEXAS, WHY? :rolleyes:

This story makes me feel weird... it’s one of the rare occasions I find myself agreeing with Ben Shapiro and that makes me feel dirty (Wich aside—I seem to be reverting to more of a center-right stance now that Trump is gone!)

Is abandoning your state (literally freezing to death) to vacation in sunny Cancun a shitty thing to do? Yes. Was it even shittier to blame his daughters for the trip? Yes. But the national media piling on and demanding his resignation is a bit much. Demanding resignation for this actually cheapens demands that he resign over his role in the insurrection—THAT’S a cause for resignation, not this!

I fully support Texans of all stripes raking Cruz over the coals for this (assuming they can still light the coals lol.) They should demand his resignation (can’t recall a Senator unfortunately.) But I think the national media punditry is blowing this up. Furthermore, what *should* Cruz be doing right now? Just suffering like everyone else?
Cruz should be screaming bloody murder to ensure that Texas gets whatever assistance it needs and to fix the flaws in their electricity provision, plus whatever else he could conceivably do to help Texas or at least to let Texans know that he's there with them. Instead, he fucked off on holiday. He should lose his job one way or the other.

Complete horseshit of course.

If they weren't old enough to fly by themselves, they aren't old enough to leave in Mexico.

He planned so stay, got called out, blamed his kids and is slinking back like it was the plan the whole time.

Rafael Cruz is a liar.
so....he wants us to believe that he was going to leave his daughters alone in Cancun for a week to get knocked up or something?

I don't know...maybe their job? Kinda like this, maybe?:

I thought it was her Green New Deal that caused all these problems?!?!

what say you?

...also, you do know that Ted Cruz is not a state senator, right? He sits in the US Congress, bro. Do you ever pay attention to the bright lights that sometimes flash around you?

Even his opponent from 2018, Beto O'Rourke, is doing more the cruz is and he ain't even in office.

Something, but his wife was also going, but Big Daddy was just "escorting" them there. With Heidi's looks, maybe he assumed she was safe.

It doesn't make much sense as it's a stupid lie
