Judith Miller: Senators Say Cruz ‘Not A Man Of His Word,’ Would ‘Stab You In The Back’

Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Judith Miller said Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) “was so disliked in the Senate,” because “he was not a man of his word,” and would “stab you in the back.”

Miller said, “Cruz was so disliked in the Senate, and Boehner was a charter member of that club. So, you could just see the politicians hated Cruz for reasons, by the way, that still have yet to be fully reported.”

She continued, “What I’m hearing is that he was not a man of his word, that you’d thought you had made a deal with Ted Cruz, and then he would back away and do his own thing, or stab you in the back. … Within his own party.”

She added, “And that’s why you get someone like John McCain, who does not speak ill of fellow Republicans. He abides by the Reagan rule, and, yet, he’s made an exception for Ted Cruz. So, you see a lot of ill will towards the man.”
