During a ‘Conversation about the Constitution’ segment at today’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Senator Ted Cruz took a moment to destroy former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) for setting the stage for the Democrats’ worst nightmare: allowing President Trump to get all of his cabinet picks confirmed.
Reid was behind the dramatic move to eliminate filibusters for most nominations by presidents when Democrats held control of the Senate and it was ‘president’ Obama who was making nominations. That move has come back to bite Reid and the weakened Democrat Party in the butt… Big League!
“Since January 20th I’ve raised the glass and toasted Harry Reid,” Cruz joked. “Because Harry Reid employed the so-called ‘nuclear option,’ broke the Senate rules to change the Senate rules, lowered the threshold for confirmation from 60 votes to 51 votes and it is a direct result of Harry Reid that we now have the most conservative cabinet in decades!”
The most conservative cabinet in decades. Sweet music to our ears.
Cruz then ran down a list of names that Harry Reid’s short-sighted move helped get approved recently –
Betsy Devos …
and Cruz said he “look(s) forward to thanking Harry Reid for Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch!”
