The left is trying to make hay over Ted Cruz’s comments yesterday on Nancy Pelosi being drunk on power by digging up something he said last year and trying to frame him as a hypocrite:
Ted Cruz last year said "I guarantee you" Democrats would stop talking about covid restrictions if Biden won since they were just playing politics to hurt Trump
Now he says Democrats are playing politics by still talking about covid restrictions even though Biden is president https://t.co/hhaYGN6QBq

Ted Cruz responded this way, saying “I’ll admit, I underestimated just how radical Dems would become. They love power — it’s like a drug to them — and the can’t stop issuing mandates: mask mandates, vaccine mandates, shutdowns & closed schools. All while the corrupt corporate media cheers them on.”

Ha! Well it was an easy mistake to make considering how rabid Democrats were against Trump last year.
In related news, here’s a New York City business owner decrying these new mandates:

This business owner seems very reasonable. But what I love the most about this interview is that he clearly said the transmissibility of the Delta variant doesn’t impact his thinking. He said there needs to be an end game, and he’s exactly right.
In trying to figure out if this guy is a Democrat, I found this on his timeline:
Time for my apolitical perspective on all of this. I voted for Hilary Clinton in 2016
I accepted Trump’s win and was never ok with the attacks on his legitimacy
I felt embarrassed + betrayed by all the energy put into discrediting that election, instead of Dems working for us https://t.co/aGlXX0rMWm

So yeah he’s a Democrat, but he’s not a radical. He seems a bit more like a moderate based on a cursory look at his timeline. Also, he’s clearly not a fan of Fauci which makes him a solid thinker in my book.
