Below is the viewer email in response to a short read last night ON THE RECORD at 10pm. We showed the pic Senator Cruz tweeted of a full British Parliament debating Syria and our completely vacant US Senate Chamber in the US Capitol.
Why in the world did you say what you did about Sen. Cruz’s captioned pictures? You know he’s absolutely right, so why did you put that negative connotation out there? You should have pointed out that he’s speaking the truth! It was NOT funny!
We were just teasing Senator Cruz. We were not intending to put a “negative connotation” on him – our point was to tease him in good spirit that he was taking his colleagues to the woodshed and they would not be happy with him.
I confess that I do see your point – Senator Cruz was making a serious point about a serious issue – while we were teasing him for taking on his colleagues. Senator Cruz tweeted with the pic the word “UNACCEPTABLE.”
Frankly, I agree with him that the House and the Senate should be back in Washington having a robust debate about Syria. And I will take it one step further. I also don’t think they should have taken their 5 week recess until they handled the Continuing Resolution set to expire at the end of September and the debt ceiling crisis.
