Senator Ted Cruz Takes a WHACK at Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush (R-FL) is not the most popular name among the conservative grassroots… no, a title like that would go to a guy like Ted Cruz (R-TX). So it is with more than a wry smile on my face that I get to write about the shot Senator Cruz took at Jeb Bush over the weekend while he was speaking at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention.

Cruz was talking about how the establishment elements in the GOP would like our party to nominate a moderate and not a conservative… which is when he let go with one of the GREATEST pun/takedowns in poltical history.

He said…

Now there are a lot of voices in Washington who will intone with gravelly voices: “The only way to win is to run to the bushy middle.”

They’ll tell you it is all about electability. And you know what electability is, it is nominating the person most like the Democrats. You know the funny thing about that? Every one of these Washington greybeards who goes on television and talks about the way to win is to run to the Bushy middle. Have you noticed that these consultants keep losing? Over and over and over again. Who is their right minds would listen to someone who keeps getting whooped giving us advice about how not to get whooped.

 

Ah, boy. I do love watching Ted Cruz rile up a conservative crowd. It is more than a little bit entertaining… and it’s all the better when he’s aiming his wit and charm at the GOP establishment.

Here are Senator Cruz’s full remarks from the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention.
