I guess he thinks we are stupid!
Texas Senator and hate monger Canadian born Tea Party Teddy Cruz said that he opposed the government shut down. He blamed the President and the Democrats for not negotiating with the Republicans. Of course to the Cuban/Canadian negotiations means the Democrats doing what the GOP wants.
I don't know who Cruz is fooling but a lot of us were watching very closely and we know who was responsible for the government shut down.
Perhaps he really is as delusional as he appears nightly on the news.
