Ted Cruz Praises ‘Brash’ Christie But Calls for Principled Leadership

(WASHINGTON) -- Sen. Ted Cruz pushed back Wednesday at N.J. Gov. Chris Christie’s suggestion that America is “angry with the dysfunction in Washington,” an implicit criticism of the Tea Party-driven government shutdown.

Cruz offered tepid praise for Christie, who cruised to a second term Tuesday night, but suggested that conservatives are craving a leader who will not back down or compromise.

“I think it is terrific that he is brash, that he is outspoken, and that he won his race,” Cruz told ABC News at the Capitol. “But I think we need more leaders in Washington with the courage to stand for principle. And in particular, Obamacare is not working.”

Asked whether Christie is a true conservative, Cruz walked away. Aides said he didn’t have time for more questions.

Regardless of what you think of Christie or Cruz, this is yet another example of the media interpreting the news for us.

We need to read the comments and make up our own minds.

Cruz will have plenty of time to demonstrate the answer to that question by using actual examples.

Hey Sem,

Could you please tell me what you mean? I’m not being critical...I’d just like to know what you’re referring to.

Thanks!

I love this guy!

Perfect answer to a stupid question.

Chris Christie is Mitt Romney 2.0.

If he get's nominated, once again, the GOP will have snatched victory from the jaws of Defeat and if you think the losses in 2008 and 2012 were bad, you ain't seen nothing yet with Christie as the nominee.
