ABC chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl says many of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruzs 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 Im going to filibuster, suddenly they need 60 votes, Karl explained on ABCs This Week Sunday, speaking of last weeks vote to increase the debt ceiling. Ill 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, hes 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.
Makes me like Cruz even more
Good. The more the RINO’s hate him the more conservatives love him...
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?
We don’t give a shiite if you traitorous ass clown RINOS hate him cause’ we here voters don’t.
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”?)
If the traitors did not hate him, I would probably not like him as much
Excellent point, I had much the same reaction to reading this. I’ve run out of words, it’s just too much really.
But little bammy Hussein has one because everybody juzz luvzzz prezzy B!
More violent rhetoric from the Left.
nobody is surprised of course, history shows the left are the violent ones
Yup. The enemy of liberals and RINOS will always be my friend.
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!
Mr Smith Goes To Washington On Steroids And Slaps The Living Crap Out Of The Business As Usual Status Quo Country Clubbers.
They haven’t changed much since Stalin
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.
Goes to show you how far out of touch the GOP is with their voter base.
Heck, the Bushes are charter members of the GOPe!
McLoser was turned in Hanoi. Total unAmerican POS.
He is one of the few politicians I am happy I voted for.
Ill 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, hes going to need a food taster.
That’s the way to instill faith in the government. /s
He has the right enemies.
Primary the bastards!
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.
(Glugs down the rest of the champagne)
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.
A little angry there Mr. Karl? I doubt this lefty newsman would ever so anything venomous about a liberal Democrat in congress.
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 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!
Praying that Cruz doesn’t get Breitbarted or Arkancided...
Praying that Cruz doesn’t get Breitbarted or Arkancided...
The idiots are unable to restrain themselves...feeling momentum slipping...and they overplay the supporting game: too hard, to fast. People wake up, and herd-poisoning ceases to metastasize.
Secret talk n’ point memos from CPUS must be flying through DNC channels: “STFU!!!!!”
I can do that.
(I have a strong constitution)
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?
Cruz probably wears the hatred of Senators like McCain, Graham, McConnell, Cornyn, and Alexander like a badge of honor.
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.
Surprise .. Surprise ..!!!
McCain has learned well from the dems .. just lie because the people are too stupid to notice.
Poor GOPe - they have no clue what’s about to hit them.
well the people can’t stand the RINOs and like Ted Cruz so maybe the RINOs ought to take notice
