Ted Cruz embarassed he voted for John McCain

Senator Ted Cruz has come out and said that he doesn't know a Conservative who isn't embarrassed about their vote in 2008 and I'd have to agree with that because that was when John McCain was running for president. Since then McCain has turned into a RINO extraordinaire and sided way too many times with President Obama on issues that McCain should be vehemently opposing.

Cruz did not use McCain's name specifically, but everyone knows what he meant.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) took a veiled swipe at Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ari.) in a GQ profile released Monday, saying he was “embarrassed” to have voted Republican in 2008.

“I don’t know a conservative who didn’t feel embarrassed voting in 2006 or 2008,” Cruz said. “I think the Republican Party lost its way. We didn’t stand for the principles we’re supposed to believe in.”

McCain was the Republican presidential candidate in 2008. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who endorsed Cruz in his 2012 Senate campaign, was McCain’s running mate.

McCain and Cruz have been locking horns since the combative Texas Republican first arrived in the Senate. The two have been openly critical of one another on a range of issues, including drone strikes, foreign policy, and the nomination of Defense secretary Chuck Hagel.
