Time To Put UpI appreciate the reasoning for optimism in Washington Watcher’s essay Ted Cruz: Wobbling, But Still Worthwhile for Immigration Patriots. But there is a simpler way of gauging Ted Cruz.
As I noted in late August - Ted Cruz Comes Through: Calls For Reversal Of Obamacrat Administrative Amnesty – Cruz was practically unique amongst GOP candidates in acknowledging that Obama’s despotic immigration actions demanded challenging. I wrote:
Romney with stupid cowardice is hiding from the issue as is the Congressional GOP – implementation started this month without any protest from these heroes.Cruz took a very brave stand.
And Cruz is quite correct too: quite apart from the merits or otherwise of the policy it is brazenly unlawful and should be rejected on those grounds alone…
So where is he on this question now?
