"Mr. President, I rise today in praise of Majority Leader Harry Reid…"
Yesterday, Senator Harry Reid attempted to suspend regular order and send the Senate’s budget to conference by unanimous consent. Senator Ted Cruz objected, seeking a promise from Reid that he would not use the conference as an opportunity to pass tax increases or a debt ceiling increase through reconciliation (which would only require a simple majority). His hand caught in the cookie jar, Senator Reid did the only thing he could do: accuse Ted Cruz of being “a schoolyard bully.”
Today, Senator Cruz rose to speak to the Senate. His address is bone-dry humor and simply hilarious.
Here’s the video:
Man, I love Ted Cruz! There’s a good reason why Democratic strategist James Carville said, “I think he is the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years.”
