Cruz and McConnell Aren’t Speaking

Senator Ted Cruz is supposedly the GOP's only semi-realistic alternative to Donald Trump at this point in time but even Trump has recently spoken to their own Senate majority leader.

In a testament to just how much Ted Cruz's colleagues dislike him, the New York Times shares this nugget of information.

Senator John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican senator and Mr. Cruz’s fellow Texan, privately lobbied Mr. Cruz to attend a Senate Republican luncheon in the Capitol and soothe feelings, according to a Republican strategist briefed on the request. But after a CNN report in which some Republican senators suggested that Mr. Cruz apologize to the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, whom Mr. Cruz called a liar on the Senate floor, Mr. Cruz’s campaign became irritated and backed off a peacemaking lunch.

Mr. Cruz and Mr. McConnell have still not spoken, according to an aide to Mr. McConnell.

Cruz called Mitch McConnell a liar last Summer.

In other words, their presidential runner-up and their own Senate majority leader have not spoken since 9 months ago in July.

They're doomed.

    You couldn’t make this shit up. According to an article I just read, Trump supporters have begun to spew anti Semitic posts in social media. I have always been strongly anti gun, but, living in southwest Florida, if Trump is elected I may have to buy one and learn how to use it.

    If this were a movie the satisfying ending to this scrum would be for both of them to fall off the cliff to their mutual doom.

    What a massive dose of irony. When Ted Cruz called McConnell a liar it was the only truthful thing Cruz has said in years.

    Gaze in awe at Ted Cruz’s approach to diplomacy.

    Now imagine him in possession of the nuclear launch codes.

    Sleep tight.

    Current day republicans won’t compromise on anything….even amongst themselves.
    Plain and simple, they are unfit to govern.
