for last week and his leaving and "lack of leadership" regarding your lost power and water then it would stand to reason that you also blame Biden as he is our Preisdent,,,after all if we are blaming politicians....what about



Are they to blame? What did ANY of them do to prevent our power and water going out?

(for the record, I am aware that SJL stood next to AOC at her news conference.)

ah....you do understand that Texas is the only state with its own power grid, so Biden has nothing to do with it , nor did Cuban Ted. Yes, lack of leadership of the highest order. Optics are just horrible and blaming in your kids is BS.

Cruz leaving was a bad look in most anyone's book.

That said, the real "power" to fix the problems exposed rest with the Texas legislature, the PUC, the governor, and the lieutenant governor - not necessarily in that order.

I do understand the Texas power grid.

The left blamed Trump for everything under his watch...so Biden gets a pass?

You blamed Ted when he could do nothing, does Biden get a pass? You blamed him for hsi lack of leadership during this crisis. What leadership did Biden have under this crisis?

why are you defending Cruz?

Did he cause the freeze? No. was the power outage his fault? No.

But how about giving a **** about the residents in the state of Texas? We have 2 freakin' senators for the whole state. Shouldn't they have been visible in roles to help our citizens and seek solutions?

Instead we get Mattress Mac and other organizations organizing water pickups and warming stations, etc. but couldn't those efforts have gone even better with the weight of a US Senator?


I'm just baffled you would take the mental effort to defend this selfish POS and try to somehow use circular logic to defend Trump and blame Biden. really just an amazing topic to breach and so lacking in any self awareness.

I'm not defending Cruz....I just don't care what he did and I am certainly not going to get triggered over what he does or does not do that doesn't affect anything...

Do you know how much money I spent and work I did for the people of my community this week?

How does me not caring what Ted Cruz does have anything to do with the power outage?!? I spoke with my actions...which you have not even sought to get inforamtion on.

Again, where did I defend Trump? and you know if he were president, you people would be going ape$**** if he acted like Biden did during this...

Instead of being a judgemental ****, try controling your emotions

Wonder how many posters here or Texans in general would have opted out of the freezing temperatures, for a few days in Cancun if their circumstances allowed for it ?

Me.

Instead I went and picked up my mother in law when her electricity went out, kept her for 3 days. Had a pipe burst in the attic on Tuesday and have been without water since. Nobody could come out and fix it.

If anybody told me I got a week off of work with my family, not because of any type of illness or death in the family, and told me I would have much rather been at work, than at home with them, I would have said they are lying like crazy, until last week.

Now the cleanup begins.

Maybe if Ted Cruz hadn't been in Mexico that day, he could have come over to your house and prevented it. At least, thats what people tell me he should have been doing.

That is a very blatant mischaracterization of the history. The Texas energy sector was deregulated, and thus the current iteration of ERCOT was formed, in two waves: wholesale generation in 1995 and and the rest in 1999. Republican George W Bush took office, succeeding Ann Richards, in January 1995.

No it isn't ERCOT was formed under a Democratic governor. That is all that I said. I was adding to the comment that the current politicians are also to blame.



Stop being triggered.

In 1970, ERCOT was formed to comply with NERC requirements. However, the Texas grid is not subject to federal regulation, being an intrastate grid without interstate power flows. On May 4th 1976, Central Southwest Holdings, attempted to force the issue, with an event that was later called the "Midnight Connection", where it connected the grid to Oklahoma for a few hours. This caused lawsuits about whether federal regulation then applied, however the judgement was that this was not sufficient.

Cruz has a long history of doing nothing for the state of Texas.

There is a reason W talked openly about how much he disliked Cruz; Lindsay G saying you could shoot Cruz and nobody in the Senate would convict you; Cornyn openly disowning Cruz due to character issues; etc. These issues are not new.

Nobody - and I mean nobody - believes Cruz should have prevented a weather disaster. But asking one of the state's most senior political leaders to be hands on in a crisis is not a high bar. Leaders set an example.

On the same day Abbott was meeting with Biden to declare a state emergency, Cruz was flying to the Ritz Carlton to tan on the beach.

Cruz failed Texas miserably, again. And GOP leadership is refusing to defend him, a step in the right direction.

Very telling that you mention no names of Democrats who did nothing.

For the record, did you see that Cruz cooked and served BBQ to first responders? Gave water away?

Oh my God, he did a photo op and you fell for it?? Lollll and the fact that you think that makes up for something, means you know there was something to make up for.

I'm ok with what Cruz did, but anybody knows that if you're gonna do that, charter a plane at a small airport. Don't get caught doing it.

The hypocrisy of media in chastising Cruz taking a vacation v. Cuomo ordering covid patients back into nursing homes, resulting in the mass deaths of the elderly, is totally valid. Cruz is a dumbass and a horrible person, but not because he went to Cancun.

I didn't fall for it...I know exactly what it is just like AOC and Sheila Jackson Lee with their selfies and news conference...why is it bad that Ted does it and not those others?

Why is Ted Cruz a horrible person? Where did I say it makes up for anything? He doesn't need to make up for anything, I just asked if the poster saw the photos?

Good grief, why do you people get so unhinged at everything?!

And your last paragraph is particularly on point. It just goes to show how partisan the media has become.

Actually I wasn't...I was poking fun at Waco47 because he would whine that Trump didn't say anything on those days...but he was and still is silent on those days with Biden. If you'll go back and look at the threads, you'll understand.

I don't need a politician to be my leader or role model until it's time...nothing Paxton or Cruz or even Biden could have done about Texas.

There is a reason W talked openly about how much he disliked Cruz; Lindsay G saying you could shoot Cruz and nobody in the Senate would convict you; Cornyn openly disowning Cruz due to character issues; etc. These issues are not new.

Nobody - and I mean nobody - believes Cruz should have prevented a weather disaster. But asking one of the state's most senior political leaders to be hands on in a crisis is not a high bar. Leaders set an example.

On the same day Abbott was meeting with Biden to declare a state emergency, Cruz was flying to the Ritz Carlton to tan on the beach.

Cruz failed Texas miserably, again. And GOP leadership is refusing to defend him, a step in the right direction.
I heard the other day that there are now only two groups of people in DC..Those who detest Ted Cruz...and Ted Cruz. :-)
Lindsey Graham said, "If Ted Cruz were murdered on the floor of the Senate, and the trial were held in the Senate, nobody would ever be convicted."
