Media thinks Ted Cruz should fix your furnace

Ted Cruz took his family to Cancun for a midwinter vacation. The media wants people to believe this is a sin. 

Fox got this great big huge scoop, and went with it. This proves again that post-Roger Ailes the network is trans-conservative with the same liberal DNA the rest have.

The headline said, "Ted Cruz flew to Cancun with his family amid power crisis in Texas: source."

The subheadline said, "Millions in Texas without power, at least 20 dead."

The story said, "A Republican source told Fox News that the allegations Cruz was traveling to the Mexican city are true. "

Allegations of what? Taking a vacation is now a crime? Is it obstruction of Congress because he is not in Washington?

Why he should not go to Cancun was never explained. Fox just assumed he should not go because the power was out in parts of his state. The media believes in an omnipotent Senate that can just pass a joint resolution that restores power to Texas.

Fox is nuts, as is the rest of the media.

The media argument is that Cruz is responsible for the power going out in parts of Texas and 20 deaths, all 20 may or may not be related to power problems.

Now if he were the governor or a mayor, taking a vacation in the middle of a crisis like this should be a don't-bother-coming-back end to his career. 

But he is a senator, one vote among a hundred in a chamber thousands of miles from the downed powerlines. Sorry, Texas, but Ted Cruz cannot fix your furnace. 

The Dallas Morning News was downright psycho in its reporting.

It said, "As 3 million Texans shivered in the dark, Sen. Ted Cruz jetted off to Cancun with his family, outed instantly by fellow vacationers and berated by critics for abandoning constituents during an epic statewide power crisis.

"Social media photos from Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport and aboard the flight to the sun-drenched beach resort sprouted Wednesday evening. By Thursday, when temperatures along the Mexico’s Caribbean coast were on track to hit 83 degrees, the pile-on was at full boil.

"Detractors dusted off vintage Cruz comments denying the existence of climate change and decrying Democrats coastal elites who care not a whit for the plight of ordinary Americans."

The story should have carried the tagline: I'm Beto O'Rourke and I approve this message.

Where would the media be if not for Twitter? What a marvelous invention. You no longer have to talk to people or verify anything. All a reporter has to day is diddle the day away on Twitter. 

But if it is wrong for Cruz to take his family to Cancun, why would it be OK for these tattle-tales to vacation while people in Texas shiver? This is warmth inequity because studies show that people in poverty suffer from the cold more than everyone else does because their furnaces are older and they live in areas where the powerlines are older.

No one should be warm until everyone is.

This is the Silly Century.

How Cruz deals with this will determine whether he is ready for prime time. He tweeted a statement:

Pedestrian but effective. He showed empathy. His supporters are freezing, but they realize it is not his fault. His critics will continue to screech and throw their feces at the cage bars.

  4. Being a father is much more important than being a Senator, crisis or no. As for the media, screw 'em if they can't take a joke.

  6. By leaving the state with his family he reduced the energy demand.

  7. Ted Cruz isn't going to be turning a wrench and fixing downed power lines or powering up a shutdown coal power plant. The work he does can be done virtually from any place in the world. I'm more concerned when my Texas Senators stay in DC too long (looking at you, Cornyn).

  8. When hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, everything was George Bush's fault. EVERYTHING. Sleepy Joe owns this now.

  9. But we’ll can’t criticize Bidet* for taking today off. Thankfully, heels-up Harris took his calls and saved us.

    What a pathetic admin in DC. It’s so embarrassing. I’m also hearing that Bidet* doesn’t get to the office till 10 and then takes a nap.

  10. Sleepy Joe doesn’t know where the “hell” he is when he wakes up in the morning. He says so himself.

    But Sleepy has the Democrat Party Corporate-owned media to protect him 24/7/365.

    I understand that Austin, Texas is, if not the most, one of the most liberal cities in Texas, and many of the residents of Austin, Texas’ Capitol where it’s State government is based are impacted by the power outages.

    Perhaps this experience will lead them and their elected representatives to rethink the State’s significant reliance on windmills which don’t work when they’re needed the most.

    But I’m not counting on it because Democrat-Liberals-Profs-Socialists (what ever they call themselves today) ALWAYS double-down on reality-defying STUPID.

    Oh, and let’s not forget, when ALL new cars have to be electric, and ALL new electrical generators have to be solar or wind powered, under the Demented Biden Administration’s Green Suicide Deal - the entire USA will soon face this situation, if not much worse.

      This is the same sock puppet who hated Trump last year.

      Jeffery needs to get his cartoon characters straight. Admittedly, tough for him to do.

  11. Too bad cruz didn't just ignore them all and stay there a few days. Common sense voters in texas still outnumber the airheads, although maybe not by much anymore. Governor Desantis from Florida could give cruz a lesson or two on how to handle media harpies.

  15. You don't just jet off to Cancun.

    Foreign country. Hotel. Stuff like that there. And what can Cruz do to bring the power back on from DC?

    This is more nonsense

  16. Wellll, you knowwwwwww, DEM and DUMB sound a LOT alike, and as I keep saying, the STUPID is STRONG in these Dems.

  17. Cruz raised questions about Election Fraud–which he was later forced to recant. That is enough to be targeted by the Fascist/Corporate State.

    This is more of the same Fascist Two-Step that Big Brother Government has worked out with the Big Brother Tech oligarchs. The corporations do the Civil Rights violations prohibited to the Government, while the Government gives the corporations legal cover, non-enforcement and non-prosecutions.

    I remember when the Democrat mayor fled to Texas during Katrina. He caught some criticism, but the airlines didn't arrange for a lynch mob at the airport.

    The Airlines didn't tell us when private citizen Kerry was flying to Paris to meet with Iranian nuke-builders. Or when the Bidens fly overseas to get their orders and paychecks.

    This Corporate/State Incest is the very definition of Fascism.

  18. I'm going to swim against the tide with this post. Remember Miss Nancy and her $20 gourmet ice creams she showed off in her $5000 professional fridge as a way of showing how she was coping with the lock down? Remember how she was ridiculed because she was out of touch with the average American? Same optics at work here. Cruz is a prominent politician and should we sensitive to public perceptions.

    Why was Ashli Babbitt killed?

  20. Ted Cruz should be in Washington DC right now getting to the bottom of this weather event.
    He should be demanding to know why Al Gore was in Texas, what group he spoke to and what glowbull warning BS he spouted to bring GOD'S wrath down.

  21. People ought to stop thinking of politicians as gods who can fix everything with enough federal cash (read, taxes hoovered out of our wallets) and more as servants of the people who can't actually fix a damn thing and are in DC to do what we tell them to do.
