Ted Cruz explains what Republicans hate most: 'When they're forced to tell the truth'

Take a moment to read and savor this (my bolding). 

From DailyKos:

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Douchebag
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz took a victory lap yesterday celebrating his successful maneuver on Wednesday to force Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to vote for advancing legislation to raise the debt limit:

“In the 13 months I’ve been in the Senate it has become apparent to me the single thing that Republican politicians hate and fear the most, and that is when they’re forced to tell the truth. It makes their heads explode,” Cruz told radio host Mark Levin Thursday. [...] “A lot of the Republicans wanted exactly what Barack Obama wanted, exactly what Nancy Pelosi wanted, exactly what Harry Reid wanted, which is to raise the debt ceiling, but they wanted to be able to tell what they view as their foolish, gullible constituents back home they didn’t do it.”
So according to Cruz:
  1. Republican politicians are a bunch of liars
  2. Most Republicans were bluffing all along on the debt limit
  3. Republicans think the GOP base consists of a bunch of gullible fools
I've gotta' say, pretty hard to argue with any of that. But I will add one thing: To the extent that #3 is a true reflection of their beliefs, that's one thing most Republican politicians are right about.
