Arizona -- In reading the various articles about Ted Cruz
, it's a wonder that this guy has any friends. In your linked NYT article
I found these adjectives and phrases that describe him aptly. They kind of read like the disclaimers at the end of a prescription drug ad.
piece of work.
known for naysaying
, nit-picking and his itch to upbraid lawmakers who are vastly senior to him, who have sacrificed more than he has and who deserve a measure of respect, or at least an iota of courtesy
Courtesy isn’t Cruz’s métier. Grandstanding
made nefarious and hectoring insinuations
about Hagel’s possible corruption by foreign influences
social conservatism, the whiff of meanness
and the showy eruptions.
an affinity for opposing
, a yen for obstructing
a prime illustration of what plagues the Republican Party and holds it back.
With his votes and his vitriol
, Cruz...brings himself plenty of attention.
He’ll bring Republicans nothing but grief.
Yes, I agree...all those words and phrases describe Ted Cruz in the short time I have got to see him perform.
