We posted video yesterday of Harry Reid calling Ted Cruz a “schoolyard bully” on the Senate Floor Monday. Reid continued his attack Tuesday, referring to Cruz as the “very junior” senator from Texas. Ouch, Harry.
If you know anything about Ted Cruz, you know there was no way he was going to take Reid’s abuse lying down. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Cruz “praised” Reid late yesterday:
“I rise today in praise of Majority Leader Harry Reid. Yesterday, our esteemed Majority Leader said the following – quote – ‘My friend from Texas is like the schoolyard bully. He pushes everyone around and is losing. And instead of playing the game according to the rules, he not only takes the ball home with him, but he changes the rules.’
Today, Leader Reid continued his demonstration of civility, referring to me as the – quote – ‘very junior Senator from Texas.’ As I noted yesterday, the Senate is not a schoolyard. Setting aside the irony of calling someone a bully and then shouting them down when they attempt to respond. Today I wish simply to commend my friend from Nevada for his candor.”
Watch the entire video, folks. The only thing that could’ve made it any better would’ve been a split screen showing Reid’s response, as Ted Cruz once again exposed him for exactly who – and what – he is. We could sure use a few more Ted Cruzes in D.C.
