GOP Senator Burr (NC): I’d Vote For Bernie Sanders Over Ted Cruz

Republican senators are confronting an unsettling possibility: Sen. Ted Cruz, their least favorite colleague, stands within reach of becoming the party’s presidential nominee and standard-bearer.

Worse than that, many GOP lawmakers and aides fear the Texas senator could ruin Republicans’ chances of hanging onto control of the Senate in November’s elections, alienating voters in a half-dozen key swing states with his hardline stances on issues from immigration to abortion.

And yet, these fellow Republicans say they’re essentially powerless to stop him. Any attempt to weaken Cruz in his primary campaign against Donald Trump and other GOP candidates risks bolstering his argument that he’s running against the “Washington cartel.” So there’s little Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans can do beyond watch in dismay as Cruz, isolated and boxed out in the clubby Senate after repeatedly angering colleagues, rises in the polls in first-voting Iowa and elsewhere.



Do you believe Richard Burr has the people’s interests of North Carolina in Washington? Why would a “conservative” politician state that he would support a Communist over a true conservative? Simple answer: Burr is the typical politician who is only concerned with increasing his power base.

How long before Burr denies this statement?

    There is the problem with Cruz not being legally eligible to be president. I will not vote for him, of course I will not vote a democrat either.

  2. LT says:

    Reasonably, it should be asked, how long he can go without being made to pay for such a statement…

    Most Ricky Tick.

    “Any politician who thinks they can fight the evil that has consumed the government is delusional or lying. There is no political solution.”

    Barnhardt again

    Actually I wrote that and Ann kindly reposted it on her site.

  5. Average Joe says:

    For what it is worth I among among the unwashed who committed the heresies of voting in elections but I most certainly did not vote for Burr and encouraged others to do the same. Let us just say Mickey Mouse had more than one write in vote on my last ballot.

    Still open to discussing non- political preparations and solutions.

    has anyone on this site read this morons voting record, well I have and its disgusting to say the least. this man and all of his rino pal whores must be kicked out of the party and go over to the other side of the aisle where all the communists are, these are not conservatives they are doing the devils work and under handedly for the demon party. I wouldn’t vote for this fraud if my life depended on it. please folks read this fools record.

  7. Robin says:

    Amen, amen and amen again! I’m glad someone is finally calling out Burr-head on his non-representation of anything remotely reflecting “Tarheel Values”. How do I know you ask? Because in my opinion based on years of observation, the man has NO values of any kind, Tarheel or otherwise, except for maybe the pockets of whoever his hands are sunk into. I’ll be waiting for an expose’ on the Thomster next… I can hardly wait!

    Tom, I believe that’s not true, my parents came from Italy . but I was born here in the U.S. does this invalidate me from running for the Presidency, my Birth certificate states Born in the U.S.. , not like Obama where the Islamic negro sodomite was born in Indonesia and the democrats along with the republican leadership have covered up his high crimes. I believe Cruz is a bona fide Citizen due to his mother.. I believe if his parents were both born out of the U.S. and he was born out of the U.S. then became citizens then he could not run for the highest office in the land, as a matter of record they are not even supposed run for a senators position like the Negron did .This is just my thoughts on this matter.

  9. Tom Angle says:

    Phil, lets do what Thomas Jefferson said to do when confronted with what something meant when dealing with Constitutional matters The best I can find on what a “natural born citizen” is in the 1790 Naturalization Act.

    “And the children of such person so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age of twenty one years at the time of such naturalization, shall also be considered as citizens of the United States. And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens: Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States: Provided also, that no person heretofore proscribed by any States, shall be admitted a citizen as aforesaid, except by an Act of the Legislature of the State in which such person was proscribed.”

    Notice that the part “children of citizens”. That means both parents.

    Publius Huldah also wrote some excellent articles here:

    That seems logical that the founders would cover this part of citizenship so as not to get Bolsheviks from sneaking in and claiming all sorts of rights. But here we are in 2016 and the entire process has been bastardized by the demon democrats, the demon republicans and most of all the black robed demoniacs in the judiciary. we are in a mess, thanks for bringing that point out.
