CRUZ SCOLDS CNBC ANCHORS: ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT ‘SUBSTANTIVE ISSUES’

VIA| Wednesday at the CNBC Republican presidential debate, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) scolded the anchors of the debate for asking only inflammatory questions saying, “Nobody believes that the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary.”

Cruz was asked, “Congressional Democrats and Republicans are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, during the fear that a Washington crisis is on the way. Does your opposition to it show you’re not the kind of problem-solver that American voters want?”

Cruz shot back, “Let me say something at the outset. The questions asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media. This is not a cage match. And if you look at the questions, ‘Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?’ How about talking about the substantive issues … Carl, I’m not finished yet. The contrast with the Democratic debate, where every thought and question from the media was, ‘Which of you is more handsome and why?’ Let me be clear, the men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense, than ever participant in the Democratic debate. That debate reflected a debate between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks. Nobody believes that the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary.”
