#NCSEN: Tillis slams Cruz

thomhandsWell, all of you folks who held your nose in the 2014 US Senate race — look at what you got: 

[…] Afterward, in a fiery floor speech Friday, Cruz accused McConnell of telling a “flat-out lie” by shifting his plans to move the bank measure.

Republicans were taken aback, noting that the Senate has rules barring members from impugning the integrity of another senator — much less a party leader.

“I think it was a violation of the rules,” said Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.). “It’s not how you treat a colleague regardless of how you feel.”

Tillis and several other GOP senators said Cruz’s rhetoric backfired.

“Generally speaking,” Tillis said, senators declined to give him a roll-call vote because they disapproved of his name-calling and the risky precedent his tactics would set if he were successful in forcing a vote. .[…]

And THIS is coming from the same guy who took such great pleasure in dressing down and trying to humiliate Robert Brawley on the floor of the North Carolina House ???

Go back and read the transcript of Cruz’s remarks.  Watch the video. The guy spoke the truth.

Oh, and this bunch also couldn’t even pass a measure to defund ObamaCare.  Weren’t we all told happy days would be here again — only if we could get a GOP Senate? 

Folks, Big Government  country club, Rockefeller Republicanism OWNS DC.  We put these people in power in 2010 and 2014 to dramatically change the place.  And now, they’re playing the same games the other guys did and are laughing at us just like the other guys did.  Pathetic.
