Cruz on CBS morning news

SO RUDE.

He won’t let the interviewer get a word in edgewise. The lack of civility by Republicans is what led us to where we are today.

Republicans are disgusting.

He repeatedly blames the network saying all they are reporting is Republicans’ hypocrisy while overlooking Democrats’ equal hypocrisy on the Supreme Court issue.

Such bullshit. Accusations without basis, blame and bothsideism... how do you fight this?

1. Yes

It is a republican tactic that they've used for years now. Just drown out everyone else and repeat your lies over and over again. Dissenting points of view are not welcome.

2. Just for laughs, what's he think the "Democrats' equal hypocrisy" is?

3. Where is the Democrats' "equal hypocrisy"

Gorsuch was confirmed even though he is a right wing ideologue with ideas that are utterly repellent to most of us.

Yeah, we complained about him as a pick and most of us don't like him being there, but his confirmation went fairly smoothly.

Kavenaugh was an entirely different kettle of fish for reasons we all know...sexual assault claims (multiple), odd financial information, and his arrogance at anyone from the Democratic side asking him any questions.

When President Obama offered Garland, it was the offering of a moderate to keep the balance of the court rather than someone farther to the Left.

Where is the hypocrisy? Where?

I really, really hope that our party is willing and able to increase the size of the court and/or put term limits on terms. Yes, it would shorten the time of someone like RBG, but it would also shorten the time of people like whatever nutjob will be that orange thing's choice and it would allow for thoughtful choices rather than "who is the youngest person I can put on?".

Still not seeing the hypocrisy at all.

ETA: Ted Cruz can fuck right off.

7. He's saying that in 2016 we opposed the "Rule" and ...

... complained about McConnell refusing to call a vote on Garland. Now we favor the rule.

But he’s ignoring the fact that we didn’t have the power to make the rule. They did have the power and they exercised it. So their hypocrisy was and is substantive.

5. The interviewer can't challenge you if you keep talking. All Republicans and

their surrogates do this. It's very obvious they practice doing this, probably with a goal to talk for something like 2-3 minutes straight. It's a tactic for lying.

10. The POS is pissed off that Chump teased him last week with that "short list"

of SC candidates that included him, and now he knows it's going to be a woman.

11. Some of these guys just never learn

Did Cruz really think he would be on Trumpie's list? The stupid leaks out every time he opens his mouth.
