Chamber of Commerce CEO taunts Ted Cruz as a useless, ineffective hack

“Well I don’t know Sen. Cruz,”[U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO] Donohue told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.

“I think of him as a tennis player. You know, if you’re going to rush the net all the time you better have a lot of motion to the left and the right. And he hasn’t proven that to me yet,” Donahue added.

When a reporter noted that many believe the business community want Cruz to “sit down and shut up,” Donohue quipped,“Well that might be one thing we could work on.”

Yes, Ted Cruz is totally ineffective, unlike the Chamber of Commerce, which successfully lobbied the Republican Party to prevent Cruz from forcing the nation into default simply because he was pissed off about Obamacare. Oh wait, sorry, let me correct that. The Chamber doesn't get credit for stopping Cruz. That would go to House Democrats, every single one of whom voted to prevent default, while two-thirds of the Chamber's House GOP "buddies" voted the wrong way.

Actually, come to think of it, the Chamber of Commerce wasn't able to convince Cruz and crew to abandon their plans to shut down the government over Obamacare. Cruz's plan may have been dumb, but at least he was able to execute it. So maybe the Chamber of Commerce is even less effective than Cruz, if you think about it.

Cruz is finished. So is the tea party. Members are abandoning ship like it was the Titanic.
