Krauthammer Responds To Cruz: "I Admire His Courage In Many Ways," But He Has "Hurt The Cause"


BRET BAIER, SPECIAL REPORT: Quickly, I want to give you time. You saw the Senator Cruz interview. Obviously I referenced your panel remarks and his explanation of what happened on the Hill. Just some thoughts.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, Well, my critique of Cruz is not that he isn't a team player. There is no virtue, I think, in being a team player and I admire people who act on their own, and I admire his courage in many ways. On the other hand, I do think that what he has done, standing up on principle or making these statements has hurt the cause. He can make a lot of statements, you can you stand up, but if you do things as he did in October of last year, and as he did now, in which he enabled the Democrats. Today, the Democrats approved, I think, 21 judicial nominees. You gave Harry Reid time to do all this. If your practical effects are negative, don't do it. Make your statement somewhere else.
