Conservative NYT Columnist Slams GOP Senator Ted Cruz: ‘Looks a Little Like Joe McCarthy’ (VIDEO)

In an appearance on PBS’ 92nd Street Y, conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks slammed controversial GOP Senator Ted Cruz, throwing in a sardonic comment saying that he “looks a little like Joe McCarthy.

Discussing the rightward shift of congressional Republicans in 2012, host Jeff Greenfield quipped that Cruz is unlikely to win the title of “Mr. Congeniality” anytime soon. “These folks are much more rigid than the people they’re replacing,” he went on to say.

“If you mention the name Ted Cruz to other senators, you just get titanic oceans of eye rolling,” Brooks replied. “You’re a freshman, you don’t go in and take over hearings — you hang around and learn how it’s done.”

“It’s like the most un-conservative act to come in two weeks into the job, and decide the Senate exists for you to take it over,” Brooks continued, suggesting that Cruz has made enemies in the Senate. “It doesn’t help that he has a face that looks a little like Joe McCarthy. Actually, I find him a little off-putting.”

    When you mention a Senator or Representative would please follow journalistic convention and name the state he’s from.

    I do like the way you have framed this difficulty and it does indeed present us some fodder for thought. On the other hand, from just what I have seen, I just hope when the actual feedback pile on that people continue to be on point and don’t get started on a soap box associated with the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional point and while I do not really concur with it in totality, I regard the point of view.

    I have a friend that needs to raise 35 dollars, 000 to get out of debt after getting laid off. This would give her the fresh start life since there are not many jobs in this field she could move and start over. I would really prefer to help her and start a website for donations, actually if people just offered a money, you get enough people and it might really make a difference..

    I wish to add a enrollment form to Joomla… I need to be able to modify the areas of the type.. The form needs to register people as users in Joomla, and cause an HTML welcome email, as well as a notice to an admin about the registration… I’ve truly tried community builder, however, you can’t turn off things like username, which is irrelevant in my opinion, and the pleasant emails refuses to do CODE… Any recommendations?.
