Jon Karl: Ted Cruz ‘so hated’ among GOP senators ‘he’s going to need a food taster’ [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | February 16, 2014 | Jamie Weinstein, senior editor

Posted on 02/16/2014 10:17:46 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

ABC chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl says many of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s fellow Republican senators despise him — like, really, totally hate him.

“The Republicans in the Senate had this all set. This was going to be able to pass with only Democratic votes. He stands up, says ‘I’m going to filibuster’, suddenly they need 60 votes,” Karl explained on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, speaking of last week’s vote to increase the debt ceiling. “I’ll tell you, Ted Cruz is so hated among his Republicans now — more so than even during the shutdown — that at the Tuesday lunch they have, every Tuesday, he’s going to need a food taster.”

It must suck to be one trying to do their job in a crowd of people who all are members of the DILLIGAF club. Needless to say, the resentment factor must be off the charts for making the rest of them look like the pikers they are.

Well, Jon Karl shows his own hatred here more than aught else.

BTW, references to “food taster(s)” imply that the USA is an absolute monarchy with the Congress serving as mere courtiers. This is how the press really views the Obama Administration, then?

Didn’t I read somewhere that Benghazi Barry Soebarkah has his OWN food taster?

(and that he made sure the military guard was disarmed during his last “annointment”?)

Remember, these are the same people who stabbed Bush in the back all the time he was in office.

Sooooo .. it would stand to reason why they doubly hate Cruz .. because it was Cruz who was Solicitor General of TX and went before the Supremes to argue Bush v. Gore - AND WON.

And .. their envy of his ability to get press attention, as well as so many adoring fans .. it’s mind-boggling how juvenile; jealous; envious; hate-mongers they have become.

Like Rush said the other day .. he can see 2014 being even bigger than 2010.

And .. don’t forget .. the repubs are way ahead in donations .. so why are the elites so mad .. Cruz has padded their coffers .. and they’re still mad. Go figure!

ROTFLOL !!! McCain sent me an email asking me to sign a petition to repeal ObamaCare ..?? I was so shocked, because all McCain did was badmouth Cruz over the “repeal” stuff or the “defund” stuff.

So .. being the smart-alecky person that I am, I wrote a note on top of their email which read:

“SORRY, I ALREADY SIGNED UP WITH WHACK-0-BIRD.” Which, if you remember, was the name McCain called Cruz.

Always vote for the person that the mainstreams on both sides hate....

Especially if the mainstreams are both corrupt.

“I’ll tell you, Ted Cruz is so hated among his Republicans now — more so than even during the shutdown — that at the Tuesday lunch they have, every Tuesday, he’s going to need a food taster.”

That’s the way to instill faith in the government. /s

Who wouldn't LOVE to be Obama's "food taster"?

Hmmm...(smack, chew)...YES, this Wagyu beef is a little past medium rare...and this lobster thermidor COULD use a bit more seasoning...(chomp)...(sipping Cristal champagne)...my recommendation?

Send up a well done round steak and a bowl of Rice Krispies.

But make sure the mini bottle of ketchup doesn't have the seal broken.

The President should be safe, I think.

If we had Cruz in control we could get great mileage of Obama’s failures and yet the GOPe goes after the guy who is Ronald Reagans ideological son.

You got the Chamber of Whores, spending 50 million to go after the Tea Party Patriots, who without the GOPe took over the house from Ms. Pelosi.

Get out of Cruz’s way, and let the Tea Party show you how to take over the Senate.

Cruz to the future.

Jon Karl would like nothing better than to stir up a battle between Tea Party Republicans and the Republican Lite. Divide an conquer. We can have differences among family members, but that is something Lefty journalist should keep their nose out of.

IFF the main stream propagandists were real journalists your story would be a big one. It’s a complete and utter joke to think McCain wants to repeal OCare. presumably he wanted money from you, eh?

They lack something Cruz is very good at conveying: sincerity.

They envy that, because their actions have outed them as being in bed with the political enemies of this country, its Constitution, and its people.

As long as Cruz is in a position to do his thing, he will be showing up that bunch of no-loads, and they, especially the GOPe, will resent it.

He's a threat to their phoney-baloney jobs!

GOPe is scared to death of Cruz. Perhaps they should consider that if they were doing nothing wrong, they would have nothing to fear. Truth can be a cruel mistress when it decides it has been spurned by those who claim to be faithful to it....

The GOP-e isn't ashamed of their long-running perfidy, they are angry at being exposed. For years, they pretended to be what Cruz and Lee actually are, but now that the curtain has been pulled away, the McConnells, Hatches and Peter Kings of the GOP have gone all Alinsky on on the good guys. Ironic, ain't it?

Throughout history, when a nation or a people face their darkest times, a true leader will emerger (for instance, Churchill in Britain in WWII; Washington in America during The Revolution). Reagan was such a man. I believe Cruz may be, as well.
