1“Blame Cruz” Is The New “Blame Bush” For Whiny Democrats

Stephen Kruiser:

 

Aw, is someone sad?

 

Rep. Chris Van Hollen slammed House Republicans on Thursday, saying members now have to check with “Speaker Cruz” to get any legislation passed.

 

“It was Senator Cruz calling the shots, and that’s why people around here are calling him ‘Speaker Cruz’ today,” the Maryland Democrat said to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. “It means when Speaker Boehner says he’s going to get something done from now on, he’d better be checking with Senator Cruz to see if he’s gonna get the votes because clearly the new leadership team isn’t up to the task.” Scissors-32x32.png

Dan Pfeiffer: Ted Cruz 'has the power' in the House

 

BY BRIAN HUGHES | AUGUST 3, 2014 | 11:41 AM

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer fueled speculation Sunday that Republicans would bring impeachment charges against President Obama, saying the GOP-controlled House listens mainly to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, not Speaker John Boehner.

 

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Pfeiffer suggested that Boehner had little influence over what happens in the lower chamber.

 

“Five days before the government shutdown, the speaker said there’s no way we shut the government down over health care, and lo and behold, we did,” Pfeiffer said. “And in the House of Representatives, John Boehner might have the gavel, but Ted Cruz has the power.”
