The Most Hated

I’ve been robbed!!!

By Ted Cruz, no less.

Yes, without so much as a passing “Howdy-do,” the Texas senator stole my cherished public mantel, simply waltzed in and snatched what was once my own special place in our nation’s capital.

You’ve heard it on the news, I’m sure. In a speech at Stanford University, former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner lit into Sen. Ted Cruz, referring to him as “Lucifer in the flesh.” And a “miserable S.O.B.” to boot.

Boehner vowed never to vote for Cruz, adding: “Over my dead body will he be president.”

Back in January, former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole, a 34-year Washington fixture, attacked Cruz, arguing his nomination would lead to “cataclysmic losses,” and that, in Washington, “Nobody likes him.”

Can’t. Ignore. Ugly. Truth. Must. Face. Facts. Unmistakably: Sen. Ted Cruz is today . . . the MOST HATED MAN IN WASHINGTON.

Once upon a time, back in the day, I was hated. A LOT. The most, arguably.

In 1995, I was running U.S. Term Limits, battling Republican congressional leaders (an oxymoron), who were playing games to block term limits. At a news conference, then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich, never a friend of term limits, went on a tirade. One of his more colorful slings was calling us “cannibals.”

Which turned out to be a great name for our softball team.

After the Speaker’s temper tantrum, the late, great Bob Novak told me I was “the most hated man in Washington.”

Now? Well . . . campaigning in Indiana, Sen. Cruz responded to Boehner’s attacks succinctly: “What made John Boehner mad is that I led a movement to hold Washington accountable.”

Yeah, sounds familiar.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Two good reasons to support Cruz”
    1) the most hated man in Washington.
    2) virulently hated by RINO rubbish.

  2. Brian wright says:

    Good points, Paul. But Cruz is an a**hole among the anti-RINOs, too. Warmed over neocon poison. 

  3. Rollin L. says:

    Mr wright apparently is a small man with a small w to start his last name. Sorry, I am just using the same example of low class as you use to describe Senator Ted Cruz. You earned it. But since the other likely position is that you are a Trumpite, then you just go ahead and support the man with the 40+ year record of supporting progressive liberal politicians, policy positions and moral values, or lack of same. Cruz has been a conservative his whole life, Trump has pretended to be one for about a year. Go ahead and support the pretender, who can’t get to 40% of the vote while “loser” Mitt Romney had well over 50% at this time. Sure, Trump is a real winner with 60% of us still voting against him. Yeah, that’s a real mandate, 40%, yeah, very impressive. Hillary has far more votes, and will get far more in November if it is Trump she faces. Every time Republicans run a phony, they lose. Trump will prove no different.
