Would you agree that at the very least, the optics on this are pretty bad? Senator runs off to play in the sun and sand while many of his constituents don't have power or, in some cases, water, in dangerous winter conditions that are still ongoing?

I guess if I was suffering under the current conditions many Texans are suffering under, and I learned that my Senator (Republican or Democrat) had gone on vacation in the middle of a disaster, I'd be pretty salty about that. It's a leadership thing.

I would think anything other than flying to a beach resort in another country.

 

Shovel an infirm neighbor's drive, go out and meet and commiserate with constituents, help serve food in one of the warming shelters, help deliver water to those without, help out your local church in their efforts to help your neighbors. And if all of that is just too much, then stay home.

none of which gets the power back on. 
so there's nothing he could do to change the situation of no power is what you're saying.

I would think leaving the state would be a good thing for Cruz and family.  The grid can use whatever breaks it can get.

it's hopeless. they have no shame, and they know it. trying to explain anything to them is pointless. it's always going to be "so what"?

Hmm, I guessed you missed the thread of all the Democrats flaunting the Covid rules.

Unless Ted Cruz is hiding some pretty specific skill sets from the world, yeah, there's nothing he can do to get the power back on. Which was never the point. But ok.

The optics of what Cruz did was bad, but I agree with @Ban Hammer, there is really nothing he can do other than look like he is doing something.  Considering most of those leaning Left here did not engage in the Democrat Covid hypocrisy thread, there is really not much use engaging in this one.

Yep, a great rhetorical device to show hypocrisy.

Oh you can absolutely bet your next paycheck that if Nancy Pelosi's district were suffering from wild fires and she headed off to Cancun because, you know, she can't actually put fires out, there would be plenty of strong opinions circulating around here.

And the Pelosi acolytes would be justifying it.
