Nothing like a scandal to bring out the family feeling within the GOP. In Rand Paul and Ted Cruz Tell Hannity GOP is ‘All One Big Happy Family Now’ we learn that Senator Rand Paul has put his past disputes with Governor Chris Christie behind them and is now fully supportive of the Governor.
Sean Hannity had two of the most controversial rising stars of the Republican Party on his show Wednesday night, Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), and he attempted to get their take on the increased infighting within the party that has been happening over the last couple of years. But according to his two guests, the GOP is “all one big happy family now.”
“Both of you have a had an intramural struggle with prominent Republicans,” Hannity said, citing Paul’s difficulties with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie specifically. “Oh, no, no, we’re all one big happy family now,” Paul said. “It’s water under the bridge.”
“No pun intended?” Hannity asked.
If he keep this kind of support up, Governor Christie may very well support Paul in floating in the water beneath the George Washington Bridge.
When Hannity brought up Sen. John McCain’s criticism of Cruz, the Texas senator sidestepped the question, saying, “I think the way we unite Republicans is we stand for principle. If we’re standing to defend the Constitution, that brings together Republicans across every stripe, whether they are conservatives or libertarians or whether they’re right in the middle. That brings together independents and moderates.”With all this "unity" breaking out on the right, it looks like we're going to have our work cut out for us in 2016, fellow progressives. Dang, and I was hoping it would be easier this next cycle. I'm still recovering from some of the more stressful moments of the 2012 elections, when the Republicans were no where near as friendly to each other as they seem to be now. (snark alert! :-) )
