When someone takes on the responsibility of representing their constituents they also take on a level of expectations with it. That includes not abandoning your post or cut and run as if often used when things turn bad.

Also, whether we like it or not the families are along for the ride as well.

 

Sorry FFM but I can't cut Cruz any slack at all on this. He gave his own constituents the middle finger and effectively abandoned them. There is no excuse for what he has done.

He won't resign as Republicans rarely do that nor will he lose his next election but he deserves a metaphorical black eye delivered right between the eyes from those who gave him their vote.

 

I'm not excusing what he did, but I do understand it, purely on the basis of being a father.

 

As Dr Manhattan from Watchmen put it... "Without condemning or condoning, I understand."

 

What he's doing NOW though, after slithering back into the US, is nothing short of sickening.

Now Texans are seeing power builds in the 5-6 figure ranges... 

They've only been without power for a few days... 

 

How's that free market working for ya? 

 

I guarantee they'll be praising all the socialist programs that they'll need to get help from in the coming days/weeks.

Profiting from misery... Sickening.. Truly sickening.  I'd say those companies should be ashamed, but they won't be. They don't care about anyone except themselves.
