The Moral Of The Story For Republicans Is Don’t Come For Liz Cheney
No one likes Ted Cruz. If he didn’t have the (R) beside his name on the ballot in deep-red Texas, he’d probably be selling shoes and talking his high school exploits like Al Bundy.
Cruz has shown much skill at anything related to governing. In fact, he has no interest in it. Sen. Cruz is motivated by an outward craven ambition to be president. His desire for the presidency and need for fame seem to be the only reasons that he is hanging around in the Senate.
Ted Cruz is woefully inadequate to take on Liz Cheney. Democrats disagree with Cheney on virtually every issue outside of saving democracy. Rep. Cheney is a card-carrying, firmly conservative Republican.
Any Republican who comes for Liz Cheney is making a big mistake. She isn’t afraid of a fight, and she has more backbone in her little finger than Ted Cruz has in his entire body.
