    He should have stayed in Cancun, no apologies.
    I agree.

    In fact, Raphael should move back to Cuba if it is warm weather he wants.

    People are should be free to travel when and where they want.

    Why aren't you holding him accountable where it matters?

    His lifetime Freedom Index Score of 68% just sank to a pathetic 50%.

    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    You sound like Joy Reid. Congrats, you're a liberal now.

    FACT: Texas power failures are solely the responsibility of Gov. Abbot and ERCOT.

    ERGO: Ted Cruz has no authority, responsibility, or ability to change ERCOT.

    Leave. Ted. Alone.

    So you believe they are supposed to be leaders of some kind?

    I'm saying they are supposed to be representatives and do what we tell them to do, not the other way around.

    He says, senators should be told what to do by the people, not assumed to be gods and emulated as such, and you say that makes him a liberal? How do you figure?

    ^this.

    Although 'politics of optics' has been bit decentralized with advent of social media and relatively harder to manage for fakenews MSM, if deep lobbies have not lost faith in him, he'll be okay.

    In real world, Ted's optics are much much worse than Howard Dean's in below "scream" episode but in contrast Dean wasn't as compliant a boot licker of neocon poodle master lobbies then. Back then MSM TV media was in much stronger control of public's perceptions and replayed few seconds from this clip non-stop with exaggerated sound effects to sink his campaign:

    Politics of Optics
    2004: The scream that doomed Howard Dean
    3,841,949 views
    Jul 31, 2013

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6i-gYRAwM0

    But that "scream" as the dooming cause was fakenews media poodlebags' narrative, following was the real reason that then front runner Dem saw his campaign get doomed by media and pockets that controlled it.

    Dean defends Middle East remarks
    Wednesday, September 10, 2003

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Under fire for saying that the United States should be even-handed in the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, 2004 Democratic presidential front-runner Howard Dean Wednesday said he would not abandon the long-standing policy of strong U.S. support for Israel.

    The controversy began last week when Dean, speaking about the Middle East, said he didn't "believe stopping the terror has to be a prerequisite for talking. You always talk."
    He went on to say that "it's not our place to take sides" and said "enormous" numbers of Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories would have to be dismantled.
    Tuesday night during a debate in Baltimore, Lieberman pounced on Dean, saying he was abandoning more than 50 years of bipartisan U.S. policy offering unconditional support to Israel. (More on debate)


    In present times, will 'Reddit gamestop kids" beat 'Wall street Hedge Funds' in Texas too? Time will tell but Rafael "Ted" Cruz has impressive credentials to weather this storm (no pun intended).

    Senate Bill Would Make It a Federal Crime to Boycott Israel

    Jul 19, 2017 — 43 Senators Want to Make It a Federal Crime to Boycott Israeli Settlements ... several of the most right-wing Senators such as Ted Cruz of Texas,...

    Senators are not meant to be "told what to do by the people". They were envisioned and installed as the upper chamber,
    our equivalent to the House of Lords, albeit not composed of the landed gentry, but the aristocracy of the bourgoisie, our
    intelligentsia, our statesmen and men of respect and renown, precisely selected by the state assemblies for the purpose of
    standing above the pull and tug of demogoguery.
    Now, in 2021, I said why Cruz deserves no criticism. Firstly, it is not his domain of responsibility or effect. Secondly, he went
    to visit his daughter on a family matter. Thirdly, only liberals play this game of deflecting from the true issue. So, please refrain
    from casting accountability where it does not belong, but place your demands upon the responsible parties.

    So where did you see me placing any blame on Mr. Cruz?
    As far as I'm concerned, he should have stayed on vacation with his family.
    There isn't anything he can do about what's happening anyway.

    My use of the Reply button was perhaps too indiscriminate.
    You said, "I thought people were elected to be representatives".

    The fact that he's clearly lying through his teeth about absolutely everything involved certainly doesn't help either
    What can a senator do in this situation? I thought this was the governor's thing.

    So wait.. Do Senators have constituents?
    Of course they do.
    What is the definition of a constituent in this case?
    constituent noun
    con·​stit·​u·​ent | \ kən-ˈsti-chə-wənt How to pronounce constituent (audio) \
    Kids Definition of constituent

    (Entry 1 of 2)
    1 : one of the parts or materials of which something is made : element, ingredient
    2 : any of the voters who elect a person to represent them
    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/constituent
    Seems rather obvious a Senator is elected to represent his constituents.

    Amazingly, he's also been criticized by few in social media for 'abandoning his family' for scoring political points.
