Republican Aide Torches Ted Cruz, Says Wendy Davis Has More Balls Than He Does

Ted Cruz

The Republican Party civil war rages on and it took yet another interesting and hilarious turn on Wednesday. In an effort to achieve their wet dream of destroying the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a Obamacare), House Republicans decided to move a measure forward that would defund the increasingly popular program while leaving all other government funding intact. In other words, Republicans are prepared to shut the government down and hold the debt ceiling hostage if President Obama doesn’t bow down to their demands to tear apart one of the landmark achievements of his presidency. The GOP had been spurred to do this by Tea Party Senators Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz. But in what could either be called an act of sanity or a double-cross of the Republican Party, Lee and Cruz enraged House Republicans by declining to filibuster a move by Senate Democrats to restore Obamacare funding back to the measure.

The move angered House Republicans so much that their aides declared war on Cruz, Lee, and Rubio. Ted Cruz received, perhaps, the worst criticism of the day when an aide suggested that Cruz is a coward who should borrow a pair of balls from Texas Democratic state senator Wendy Davis, the brave senator who stood up to Governor Rick Perry and Texas Republicans to filibuster one of the most extreme anti-abortion bills in the nation. Because of her heroism on behalf of women, Perry was forced to call another special session of the legislature to slam the bill through once and for all, but Davis has since become a well known name in the Democratic Party and is being encouraged to run for Governor of Texas.

According to Raw Story, House Republican leadership aides told CNN and NBC News the following:

“They said nothing is impossible if you fight hard enough, and the minute the House announces the vote, they give up the fight? It’s crazy. They should walk the walk.”

“It is disappointing to see that Wendy Davis has more balls than Ted Cruz.”

“Cruz, Lee and Rubio are like the kids in high school who would yell fight, fight, fight, but have never thrown a punch in their entire life.”

Ouch! That has to sting. Frankly, it’s great to see Republicans laying off the filibuster for once. Surely, Americans are getting sick and tired of the GOP using that maneuver to sabotage each and every bill Democrats try to pass, especially when many of those bills are measures that even Republicans have supported in the past. Whether it’s jobs, infrastructure, health care, or the debt ceiling, it’s outrageous when the GOP kills these things out of sheer hatred for the President and anything that they consider “liberal.”

But it is even greater to see Republicans turning on each other like wild dogs fighting over a piece of meat, and once again, it’s because one of their own wasn’t extreme enough. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Mike Lee actually refused to put the country through a filibuster that could crash the economy and the country as a whole. They refused to hold America hostage, at least for the time being. Instead, Cruz is leaving that dirty deed (and act of treason if you ask me) to House Republicans to do. And House Republican aides actually think Ted Cruz doesn’t have cojones? Seriously? It takes more courage to stand against your own party than it does to fall in line with your party on every issue like a lemming strolling off a cliff into the sea. That being said, it sounds to me that Cruz has more balls than the rest of the Republican Party combined.

At least this one time.
