Cruz: ‘Joe Biden becoming president is the best thing that ever happened, tragically, for Vladimir Putin’

Cruz is craven.   He is straight outlying about the situation and misinforming his base.   I am sick of this shit.  Why is Cruz trying to help Putin?  What kompromat do the Russians have on him.   Remember after tRump insulted his wife and father Cruz kissed his ass and carried water for him.  I am sick of a Republican party that can not even put the good of the country and the thousands of lives that are at risk if an invasion happens.  The base report is at least 50,000 deaths at the start.  Of course, the Republicans don’t seem bothered by over 900,000 US deaths from Covid.   Let’s address the demand Republicans have to put sanctions of Russia before an invasion.   If we do that Putin has no reason to not invade, the punishment has already begun.   Plus it takes a tool away from Biden that he is holding over Putin’s head to stop an invasion.   Don’t think that this is Cruz acting out of concern for the people, he is acting on the hopes of the oil & gas industry that know they would be able to sell their higher priced oil to those places that Russia was providing oil & gas to.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) blasted President Biden on Sunday for what he described as his enabling of Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine, saying Biden’s presidency was the “best thing” that had happened for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Fox News Channel anchor Bill Hemmer asked Cruz during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” if he believes the White House’s approach to the situation at the Ukrainian border has worked so far.

“No, it hasn’t worked at all. If you look at what the Ukrainians want, they’ve been very explicit,” Cruz said. “They’ve asked the United States explicitly, ‘Put sanctions on Nord Stream 2, right now, today.’ Joe Biden could do that this morning. He refuses to do it. And they said, number two, provide lethal military aid, give us the weapons to defend ourselves.”

Cruz argued that Senate support for sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has changed solely because of who is sitting in the Oval Office and accused Democrats of voting “in favor” of Russia.

“Joe Biden came to Capitol Hill and personally lobbied Democratic senators to vote against Russian sanctions. That’s why we’re facing this invasion. I gotta say Bill, Joe Biden becoming president is the best thing that ever happened, tragically, for Vladimir Putin,” said Cruz.

The Biden administration has vowed to issue “unprecedented” and “crippling” sanctions against Russia if it invades Ukraine. On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Western governments to issue preemptive sanctions against Moscow.

Biden said last week that he was “convinced” that Russia was planning on invading Ukraine, though members of his administration have said that diplomatic paths toward deescalation are still on the table.

    1. Hello Nan. Thanks for the heads up. I was too tired last night to leave a comment, but this morning I added my thoughts to the mix. Have an eye appointment this morning and Ron has his tomorrow. Two days of interruptions to my routine. Whatever I do. 😀😁😃😎
