Democrats call for Cruz’s resignation over Mexico trip

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has come under fire for traveling to the Mexican travel destination Cancun amid his state’s ongoing weather crisis, and leftists are gleefully using the “scandal” to call for his resignation

Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said Cruz’s decision to fly to Mexico during a time when millions of Texans are stranded without power “disturbing and disappointing,” declaring that he should resign or be expelled from office for “jetting off to Mexico while Texans remain dying in the cold.”

Hinojosa wrote:

The Texas Democratic Party calls on Ted Cruz to resign or be expelled from office. Barring that, we will put all of the resources we have into defeating him and every Texas Republican who abandoned us in this disaster, including Governor [Greg] Abbott and Lieutenant Governor [Dan] Patrick, in 2022 and 2024. We are in a battle for the soul of our state. We must restore ethics, competence, and a government that works for the people.

Of course, the Democratic leader couldn’t resist the urge to reveal his real motive behind pouncing on Cruz’s lapse in judgment, attacking Cruz for challenging the election certification vote on January 6.

Leftists have been on the warpath against Cruz since early January for daring to stand up against the mob and object to the electoral vote certification, and the poor optics of Cruz’s trip to Cancun provide the perfect opportunity to revive calls to get him out of office for good.

Cruz, for his part, flew back to Houston just 24 hours after leaving for Mexico, admitting that it was a mistake to leave while his constituents suffered.

The mainstream media and Democrats continue to fixate on the gaffe, however, and Cruz is not likely to live this one down for quite some time.

Lee, this is far too serious for you to be acting silly. You should know that Democrats are never called out for any wrong doing. As penance, you must vote for Obama in the next three presidential elections. And, you will be required to show a picture ID.

May it be that the Democrats do not realize the the Mexican coal power grid helped us.
Could it be that Ted was on a personal thanks mission.

Robert Chalmers post covers this far better than I. It is so frustrating to have to deal with Democrats for the next 4 years. It won’t only be Biden but also Harris along with the far left like the squad and Saunders. The danger of what destruction they will create is terrifying

Norma Lancaster, when they make the 11 million illegals that are here now plus many more legal by the next election, WE STAND NO CHANCE OF EVER BEING IN CONTROL AGAIN. This amnesty is nothing but a power grab for a one party dictatorship. If we allow this to happen, the USA as we have known it is over!!!

Ted Cruz. Don’t let the commie dems bully you into resigning. Three quarters of dems should resign. Total Crooks. All they do is lie and there followers are so dam gullible to believe any thing they do or say. We should do to them what t he ey do to us. Come on Republican congress. Get some balls and fight back. With action not incite. Cnn should be in jail. For paying antifa and BLM. Thugs to licit riot. Jan 6. Dressed up like trump supporters

The Demoncrats are the scum at the bottom of the barrel. They are so corrupt and power hungry that they put a traitor and embezzler in the WH and are trying their best to totally destroy the US. Cruz has more intelligence and integrity than any dozen lib congresspeople–combined.

The Libs in office could not organize and conduct a sidewalk lemonade stand.

Patriot, the Dems would excel at running a lemonade stand. First, they’d sell the lemonade under the table for cash only, then declare bankruptcy, and finally ask the government for a bailout of a billion dollars for losing a critical piece of the economy. Run a lemonade stand, run the country, it’s easy and profitable if you know what you’re doing.

IT just so happens Cruz is not the Governor or the president. He had ,and was taking care of business, even on a brief trip! Where has Biden been. According to the regular news let see, oh yes ,he was having his forever love affair with Jill? (Watch out Jill may be doing a little kissing or caressing on the side) also putting another log on the fire HIMSELF wow!, relaxing at Camp David ! Winning a game of Mario with his (grand daughter) ! Another wow! oh yes ,and taking a snow day somewhere along the line! I will bet he had electric, gas water an food. A lot more then the Texans had!!! What do you want to bet ???

If you read the whole article he was not there in Texas for less than 24 hours. Some people need a break and Ted Cruz is one of them. He came back admitted his error and stood up for the rest of Texas. Make sure that you don’t cut off your noses to spite your face. Everyone makes mistakes. If admitted immediately then it can be fixed and forgiven…….but lies?? Never…No one should cover that. He has stood by his state for a long time and the choices he has made for the foremost have been correct and prosperoused your state. He is human and even Rush would have given him a break.

Ted Crus has done a good job. Unlike people like Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney and a few others he’s stood up like a man and fought back. So just what’s wrong with him and his family taking a vacation? He probably spent HIS money and not OURS. On the other hand look back at Obama and his lavish vacations at OUR expense. And as for vacationing during the storm in Texas, so what? What could he, as one person have done to prevent it? I feel Dictator, Joe Biden should be the one taken to task simply because he literally cut of the fuel supplies needed to generate heat, power and now, no doubt water.

Democrats did not call on Pelosi to resign, when she was loading the bus _her family, some politicians, to hop on a plane to Afghanistan during the Government Shut Down….. she should have stayed home and help resolve the shut down. so, now, they want Cruz to resign? Beyond words!

You too Robert? A whole lot of my posts go down the memory hole. There’s been an awful lot of that lately. I think the Dem Constitution’s First Amendment says ” you have free speech while seated in the smallest room in the house, but when you’re done wiping, you can say anything we let you say, unless we don’t let you say anything”. Does that sound right to you?

Of course the Democrats want Cruz out of office. I just hope the Republicans don’t start their yammering about Cruz too. He used poor judgement but don’t throw a good man out because of bad judgement. He’s a great man.

So what?!! If I could afford it I’d go to Cancun to and get away from this cold weather and no water. What’s the big deal, what is he supposed to do? Is his staying in Texas going to help anybody? What do they want him to do- go out and deliver water personally? Crawl up an electric pole and fix everybody’s electric all by himself? They need to get real.

Pelosi and her gang of thugs are to blame for everything wrong with our government right now. Biden is a puppet for Harris. Pelosi, Schumer, Harris, AOC and others need to be kicked out and sent home; and never allowed back in office ever.

It appears the Washington Swamp Creatures are gathering to attack Ted Cruz for being a Patriot and representing the wishes of voters in the State of Texas as he was elected to do. Given the chance, this Democrat would cast his vote for Ted Cruz. Not because he is a Republican but because he upholds the Constitution and bases his decision making on preserving the foundations of America’s freedom and the rights and well-being of it’s American Citizens. Senator Cruz don’t ignore Citizen’s concerns and questions like Biden & Pelosi do, but continue to stand firm for America against enemies both foreign and domestic who are engaged in activities that will weaken/destroy America.

Hey, Ted: tell all of those stupid dems that you are not going to resign. You took a short trip and did not use resources here in Texas that were used elsewhere; where they were needed most. I think that is a really smart thing to do. To those journalists who complained: you are all idiots who have nothing more to do than go after hardworking GOP who are actually doing something good for the US. Not like some liberals I know.

For a group of people so filled with hatred that they direct their every moment at destroying a person out of office. They are in no position to make judgments on anyone. All of the Democrat Party and Never Trumpers are trying to cover up everything Trump did for the average to poor and well being of all of America that it has exposed their inability to lead in a way that benefited everyone instead of the Elite Rich and Powerful. These folks in my opinion are truly Evil and so filled with hatred they could care less about America’s well being. Those leading America today are worse than Hitler.

DEMOCRATS control the Presidency, Senate and House of Representatives. Their actions causes a person to question what is going on in America. I am left pondering the following questions and searching for answers: What excuse does the Democrat leadership have in not acting promptly to the dire needs of American Citizens living in Texas? Is the Democrat Leadership playing politics with the lives of American Citizens? Why is the Democrat Leadership compounding the crisis in Texas by releasing illegal aliens into the state? Is the Democrat Leadership trying to bring the State of Texas into submission because they voted Republican? I have observed reporters ask the the Democrat Leadership penetrating questions and then be ignored as Biden does or being told by Democrat Leadership like Pelosi that they are not going to answer or respond to that. Does the Democrat Leadership have so little regard for American Citizen’s questions, concerns and needs that they are willing to ignore citizens? As a Democrat I don’t support or condone this type of treatment of any legal American Citizen regardless of their party affiliation.

If you were in his situation would you let your daughters and wife fly to Mexico-another country-by themselves? I wouldn’t-I’d do exactly what he did-got on the plane-made sure they made it safe and sound and then returned back home. Just being a good dad/husband. I guess that’s wrong now too? If you can afford to get some relief from your present situation and take friends with you what’s the big deal? No school and freezing cold. People need to mind their own business.

Senator Ted Cruz was apologetic for his decision to take his family out from a power outage situation. He stated he was wrong, ok… dumb move and confessed for it… understood, it sure is a hell of lot MORE THAN Biden OR his son Hunter have done to apologize for THEIR stupid moves in politics!!! Sorry… but what works for the “GANDER..WORKS FOR THE GOOSE!!!” Sorry… but judge ONE… JUDGE THEM ALL !!!! The current administration and it’s current POWER hungry fools holding offices are ONLY interested in lining their own pockets and could careless about the American public AND OPPOSING SENATORS for a simple wrong doing. This by no means holds a light to the gross negligence of the Biden family group… PERIOD!!!!
