My mind drifts back to Ronald Reagan. Those days when he made bold promises and never delivered on many of them. In fact, Ronald Reagan’s Administration was hijacked by far Right-Wingers.
It appears Senator Ted Cruz is trying to take a page from history. Yesterday, President Trump took clear and decisive action against the Assad Regime in Syria. Ted Cruz is now attempting to derail President Trump’s leadership.
In a Tweet, he explained the mess made by Obama. He said our prayers with those impacted. Then he took a stab at PresidenT Trump when he cynically said:
“Any military action in Syria must be justified…”

On its face, this statement looks harmless. The problem is, Senator Cruz is trying to involve himself in the decision making process. The Senator has no authority in matters that are “vital” to “national security interests”.
Senator Cruz is attempting to take authority away from the Executive branch. These same tactics were used against Reagan by far Right-Wing Senators during his administration. It is clear to me that Ted Cruz is still bitter over his defeat.
Now he hopes to use the Syrian Conflict cause people to doubt President Trump. I think Senator Cruz needs to worry about endingBad Trade Deal, repealing and replacing Obamacare, and approving the People’s Agenda set forth by President Trump.
Ted Cruz appeared on Fox News saying that Congress has the authority to “declare war.” He repeated what he said in his statement. It is clear that Ted Cruz is trying to hijack this even to advance his own agenda… What do the Koch Brothers stand to gain from Ted Cruz’s re-election?
Ted Cruz needs to do HIS JOB and leave the Executive business to President Trump! Maybe Ted Cruz should clarify his ambiguous statement! After all, he is planning to run again in 2018, where he will certainly meet resistance from a real Republican., 😉
