Liz Cheney knocks Ted Cruz, says his actions on Jan 6 ‘disqualify’ him from running in 2024

Liz Cheney is already knocking potential presidential candidates for 2024 while Republicans are on a legislative retreat in Orlando, which suggests she may be considering a run herself:

NEWSWEEK – House GOP conference chair Liz Cheney (Wyo.) has suggested that the actions of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) in Congress on January 6 were “disqualifying” for their 2024 presidential ambitions.

Cheney on Monday told The New York Post that senators who “led the charge” of objecting to the certification of President Joe Biden’s 2020 election win on the day of the Capitol riot should not be considered potential candidates the next election. Cheney also said that she was “not ruling anything in or out” when asked about a presidential run of her own.

“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House,” Cheney told the paper. “I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying.”

“I think that adherence to the Constitution, adherence to your oath has got to be at the top of the list,” she added. “So, I think, you know that certainly will be a factor that I’m looking at and I think a number of voters will be looking at as they decide about ’24.”

If Cheney is planning on running to be the nominee in 2024, I can already tell you that ship is not gonna sail. It’s gonna end up at the bottom of the political ocean while either Trump or DeSantis ride atop the ocean in cheers.

And as far as her comments about Cruz, she’s just part of the establishment trying to crush those whom they see as opponents. What Cruz did on January 6th was courageous, trying to bring integrity back to a process that had none. After the widespread reports of voter fraud that we saw in 2020, nobody on the right trusted the outcome of the election. At least Cruz offered a way to try and bring back trust to that process, instead of just going along with the status quo of potential voter fraud.

She also had a few words for Cheney and other establishment Republicans:
