George W. Bush to help raise money for vulnerable Republicans, but not fellow Texan Ted Cruz.

Lindsay Graham: “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you.”

Former president George W. Bush. Bush is coming out of retirement to help vulnerable Republicans—but not, as the Dallas Morning News notes, the Republican senator from Texas.

Cruz is a former staffer for Bush, working on both of his presidential campaigns and then in his administration. Ted met his wife, Heidi, on the campaign trail.

But in 2015 Bush reportedly told the crowd at a fundraising event that “I just don’t like the guy.”

Bush has not given him a dime in any of his campaigns.

“We’ve considered the requests we’ve received and accepted those that work with our schedule,” Bush’s spokesman Freddy Ford told The Dallas Morning News.

Yeah, nobody likes Ted Cruz. 

With good reason, by the way, get a load of the mailers he sent out to raise money for his campaign. 

Courtesy of MSN:

Ted Cruz’s Texas Senatorial campaign has sent hundreds of thousands of mailers seeking donations that are meant to look like official county summons, a high-ranking campaign official confirmed to Newsweek.

The brown envelopes read “SUMMONS ENCLOSED- OPEN IMMEDIATELY” in large black letters, and have a return address of “official county summons.”

While the letter inside the envelope is a donation form for the Cruz campaign, there is some fear that certain voters may be confused by the mailer and think that they are required by law to pay a fee.

“Received this for my 88-year-old grandma,” wrote Sean Owen of Austin on Twitter. “Says it’s a summons from Travis County, but is actually asking for money for Ted Cruz. Did your campaign authorize this? Is this even legal? Shame on you.”

Apparently, this is not illegal, just morally repugnant. 

And really is there any better description of Ted Cruz?

    Cruz’s head looks like a mound of half-eaten pork chops wrapped in a greasy translucent sausage casing.

    Every time I see Ted Cruz, he reminds me of the character Frank Burns on the TV show M*A*S*H. Ferret-face.

    Yeah he is desperate. He also sent out automated phone calls all over the USA to tap into some conference call he was making. NO republiCON should be elected nor reelected they have F*cked up major. And gw bush? He should go back to painting shoes or something. 911 happen on his watch due to his family BS. The republiCON’s are some seriously screwed up people today. LIARS, CHEATS and CORRUPTED are not good examples or leaders. NO tax dollars for unethical paid servants anymore.
