Ted Cruz's defense
Posted by Staff
Politico reports:

He’s not backing down.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), speaking on Tuesday at a Texas gun manufacturer, defended his confrontational political style and told reporters that he’s not toning down his outspoken, often hard-hitting rhetoric against his political enemies.

“Washington has a long tradition of trying to hurl insults to silence those who they don’t like what they’re saying,” the freshman senator told reporters, according to Reuters. “I have to admit I find it amusing that those in Washington are puzzled when someone actually does what they said they would do.”

Cruz has been criticized for his tone by some in the Senate, including Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), who has compared him to Sen. Joe McCarthy, who launched an anti-communist witch hunt in the 1950s.

Cruz isn’t fazed by the criticism.
