HOUSTON Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas and the face of the angry right, has been criticized, lambasted and lampooned for putting the nation through a 16-day government shutdown and the prospect of a financial default.
Bloomberg Businessweek put him on its cover as a mad hatter who defines how crazy is the new normal. Representative Peter T. King, a Republican from New York, has said Republican leaders need to go after Mr. Cruz and accused him of bringing the country to the edge of ruin.
In Texas, it is a different story.
That's right. They are his constituents and they voted him in and can vote him out.<quoted text>
As they say, only in Texas, the home of GWB and God-anointed Perry. What did you expect?
Now, can you explain how his filibuster of Sep. 24-15 shut down the government a week later as you claim?
