I hate to break it to the Republicans in the House, but if they honestly believe that somehow Sen. Ted Cruz is messing up the Republican brand right now, they're deluding themselves. That said, if anyone was wondering just how badly you have to behave to get any of them to start complaining, it appears that we just found out.
During a discussion on Morning Joe about Mitch McConnell and the fact that he's getting hammered from both sides right now with a primary challenger and a Democratic challenger, the conversation turned to some of these new senators giving the likes of McConnell and others headaches, and host Joe Scarborough threw this tidbit out there.
SCARBOROUGH: I’m hearing from conservative House members... conservative House members, that have 95, 96, 97 percent ACU conservative ratings, that are saying, of Ted Cruz, this guy is making our life a living hell, by pushing things that will never work, only strengthen Obama, and they keep our people on the phone all the time.
And what they’re angry about is, that he’s doing it all to build his mailing list, so he can raise money and become a national candidate. And basically to hell, not only with the Republican Party, the hell with the conservative moment. And for anybody in talk radio, on the blogosphere that wants to say “Oh Joe, he's just an MSNBC liberal.” Yeah, with a 95 percent ACU rating, call conservative congressmen in the House and speak to them off the record. They’re just as pissed off at what’s going on as some moderate Republican senator in the Senate. Democrats love this. Conservatives hate it.
I'd love to know who these so-called "moderates" are.
