'Top' DC Republicans Sent Oppo Research to 'Hammer' Cruz

 

On Sunday, Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, said that Republicans in Washington were savaging Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) behind Cruz's back before Cruz's appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare. 

In an appearance on Washington D.C.'s Fox 5 to preview his Sunday show, Wallace said, "I will tell you I have never in my time in Washington seen a party so upset with one of its own members."

He said he had been flooded with opposition research on Cruz--from Republicans. Later on Fox News Sunday, Wallace said these "top Republicans" gave him "unsolicited research and questions" to "hammer" Cruz.  

"Since we announced that Ted Cruz was going to be on the show, I've been getting background research and questions going after Cruz not from Democrats but from other Republicans," Wallace said on Fox 5. "They really feel he has put them in this corner that they can't get out of gracefully and they're not very happy with him." (Tough titty. BT)

In an exclusive op-ed for Breitbart News on Saturday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has also been savaged by establishment Republicans, urged Cruz to stay strong in the face of inevitable attacks from fellow Republicans and suggested they compare "shiv marks" the next time they meet:

  1. Quite obviously, establishment Republicans don't want to upset the status quo. They aren't there to represent us any more than the Democrats are. It scares the crap out of them when some young upstart like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul comes along with actual knowledge of the Constitution and a mandate from their constituents, as well as a willingness to govern accordingly.

    Their "Old Boys Club" is falling apart.

    I have to admit that I'm enjoying watching the whole thing fall apart.

    We all have a part to play in this little drama... Better practice your lines and learn them well :)

  2. I will no longer call them RINOs. From now on I will call them Vichy Republicans.

  3. I figured out some time back that the Republican establishment in DC does not want to lead. They like the role of "loyal opposition" that allows them to go back to us, the idiots that elected them, and
    say "boys we almost got them this time, all we need is some more money". Meanwhile they wine and dine with the democrats and laugh at us behind our backs.

    1. They need to go. McCain hinted he won't run again, fortunately. An utter failure.

  4. I see calls for Fox to release the names of those republican pukes. Doesn’t take much to figure out who they are just list the names of the republican leaders in the House and Senate and you have the list.

  5. Vichy Republicans indeed. If they are outed, they might as well resign now, as they are the worst sort of traitors.

  6. Texans still think they're a " whole other country." They should revert to that noble status. The USA needs Texas. It doesn't need the USA. How could Ted Cruz and Rand and Ron Paul (both are really Texans) be in the same party with McCain?
