5 Reasons Ted Cruz Lost His Mojo

By Published on September 30, 2015

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) has become the Rodney Dangerfield of the GOP. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and fellow Republicans figured out how to shut him down and keep the government running. In the Senate, Cruz’s peers collectively deprived him of the chance to speak beyond his allotted one hour. They thereby curtailed his grandstanding opportunities and any procedural shenanigans designed to cause a shutdown crisis.

Fellow presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) trenchantly observed: “Ted has chosen to make this really personal and chosen to call people dishonest in leadership and call them names, which really goes against the decorum and also against the rules of the Senate, and as a consequence, he can’t get anything done legislatively. He is pretty much done for and stifled and it’s really because of personal relationships, or lack of personal relationships, and it is a problem.”
