What Can Senator Ted Cruz Do Now With Senate Deal Nearing Completion?

October 15, 2013


There is no doubt that the bipartisan deal that is materializing in the Senate is one that Senator Ted Cruz and his House conspirators are unlikely to support or vote for when it reaches the floor.

So what does Cruz do?

Nothing can be ruled out given his antics and need for self-aggrandizement that has been witnessed for the past three weeks.

Cruz could take to the senate floor and attempt a filibuster of the deal.  But in taking such a move it would likely push any Senate vote on final passage past the Thursday deadline to raise the debt ceiling.   That means Cruz and his nutty allies would bear the brunt of the political consequences that will come from a default.  It would be an international bashing of the type never seen before for the conservatives.  But if Cruz crumbles and does nothing it might make him look like a smaller dick than he is among teabaggers.

Oh, the tangled webs we weave when we practice to deceive…….
