    You may want to re-assess your Beto vs. Cruz conclusion given that Beto (whom isn't a public servant at the moment) is actively trying to help Texans during this crisis while Cruz just bailed to Cancun.

    You may disagree with Beto on policy. But you cannot deny that he is a man of far greater character and integrity than Cruz.

    He's a good man, he's not a good politician. It's a shame his dumbass Presidential campaign ruined him for statewide elected office in Texas.

    One guy volunteered to help fellow Texans. The other escaped the cold to vacay in sunny Cancun. Which one is the absolute worst, giant bag of nothing?

    Unless I'm spreading it in my garden, I'll take a giant bag of nothing over a giant bag of **** any day.

    I think Cruz is probably done after this. Just like Beto this is the death sentence. Arguing which one is better is moot at this point politically.

    I would imagine it has to do with northern states having the proper trucks to safely deliver mail in those conditions, plus the equipment to keep the roads open. We don't have that.

    Back to Cruz:

    Ted Cruz’s hobby seems to be how much he can piss people off while getting away with it.

    They drive jeeps...lol. There is no snow on the roads in Houston. Texas could never survive on its own. We have to get Federal Aid in summers and winters for floods, hurricanes, snow, and ice. We can't even salt roads properly when a freeze is forecast.

    He's up again in 2024, right? That's too long of a tail. Texans will forget and reelect king dipshit again.

    Texas deserves a guy like Cruz and the rest of the sh** leaders like Abbott that they elect.

    God forbid "Ted " Cruz isn't mistaken for a cartel rival trying to make his move all over Cancun. If "Ted" can travel to Mexico, cohete rojo can too!

    Why do you say this? Cruz and this stunt perfectly embodies the current Republican party. Trump golfed his way through the entire pandemic and only got more popular among Republicans.

    I read this one today: " If Cruz really wanted to take over Trump's base, he should have just stayed in Cancun and defied the media criticism, now he looks weak".

    Won't ted Cruz need a negative covid test 72 hours prior to his return flight from Cancun

    ( I read today that new CDC guidelines suggest that you don't need to quarantine if you have been vaccinated)
