Ted Cruz: Media, Dems Paint Conservatives as ‘Stupid’ or ‘Evil’

August 8, 2013

en. Ted Cruz said the media and Democrats have a tendency to describe conservatives in two ways: stupid or evil.

“A conservative is either stupid, too dumb to know the right answer, and even worse, if they actually know the right answer, then they’re evil. They want people to suffer,” the Texas Republican said in a new Time Magazine interview.

Cruz, widely thought to be a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016 said a third category has recently emerged.

“I suppose I feel mildly complimented in that they have recently invented a third category, which is: crazy,” he said. “It’s the alternative to stupid or evil. And now crazy is the third one, because it seems inconceivable that there could be Americans who believe in free-market principles and believe in the Constitution and are working to defend them.” Published in Politix.
