Business community wants Ted Cruz to sit down and shut up


Poor Ted Cruz! He’s not getting much respect these days — except, of course, from the wingnut base of the Republican Party.

Even the people who wear suits to work are turning against him, as we see HERE:

U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue suggested Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) should reconsider his role as congressional troublemaker.

At a breakfast meeting with reporters in Washington, sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Donohue responded to an initial question about Cruz and his growing influence within the Republican Party by saying the Chamber would look for ways to work with him. A reporter followed up by noting that the conventional wisdom is that the business community wants the Texas senator “to sit down and shut up.”

“Well, that might be one thing we can work on,” Donohue quipped.

“I sort of think of him as a tennis player,” he had said earlier. “If you’re going to rush the net all the time, you better have a lot of motion to the left and the right, and he hasn’t proved that to me yet.”

    If the media would not pay attention to Cruz and concentrate on responsible members of congress perhaps he would go back to the asylum and work on his autobiography. Just because he stands in front of a monument with miss moosemouth from Alaska doesn’t mean cameras and reports need to be there.

    • How else are the media conglomerates going to fill 24/7/365 airwaves, if they don’t give time to fillers like Cruz and Moosemouth? I think the advent of the 24/7 news channels is what’s caused the sensationalism of non sensational people and the cheapening of the news in general.

      PS – Why isn’t anybody commenting on the 60 Minutes story about the politicians we elect changing rules so they can live a life of grandeur off the donations they receive. Do I detect a jaded electorate? And why aren’t people bitch’n about Eric Holder dragging the criminal investigations into the banks out till the statute of limitations is up. There’s plenty of evidence to go after specific people, but he’s not doing it. Because he and Obama and all the other Dems want those ill gotten gains in the form of donations. Are we all so jaded that all we can do is find fault in other posters perspectives?
