I’ve Absolutely Had It With This Idiot Ted Cruz

cruz-tedBefore writing this, I had simply planned to close my laptop and move on to doing a few other things.  That was until I read a single comment Ted Cruz made during his photo-op appearance at the Million Vet March in Washington.

Now his statement is nothing more than him pandering to the obvious right-wing listeners which had gathered around the buffoon, but something about it just struck a nerve and I felt the need to vent against this pathetic excuse for a human being.

During his disgusting attempt to use veterans as a means for political gain, Cruz said to the crowd, “This is the people’s memorial.  Let me ask a simple question. Why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?”

And that simple moronic statement just sent my blood boiling.  Maybe it’s just the fact that after weeks of seeing his sniveling face on television and hearing his whiny voice, I’ve simply had enough of the sociopath from Texas.  But I think what ticked me off the most about his statement was the blatant effort he was making to manipulate a crowd which was obviously too ignorant to think for themselves.

After all, it was he who championed this shutdown to begin with.  It was his pointless campaign to shutdown the government in an attempt to “stop Obamacare” (which they can’t, by the way) that caused this shutdown to begin with.

Cruz was one of the leading clowns in the circus which shut down the government, and now that it’s shut down, he wants to play innocent about the real repercussions of an actual government closure?

So why is the government spending money to keep people, not just veterans, out of these memorials?  The answer is simple, you assclown — because that’s what a government shutdown means!  What the hell don’t you get about that?  You don’t get to force a government shutdown, then complain about the ramifications of that shutdown.

That’s like someone cheating on their spouse, then complaining about their significant other wanting a divorce.  You caused the problem, now deal with the consequences of your actions.

And no, you don’t get to blame someone else for your pathetic behavior.  Sure, his rhetoric feeds right into the hands of these right-wing idiots who love to be spoon-fed what they want to hear instead of the truth, but the majority of Americans aren’t buying it.

They know who’s really to blame for this mess in Washington that’s caused our government to be shut down.  And it’s not Democrats or President Obama—it’s the Republican party.  Hell, even Ted Cruz’s fellow Republicans like John McCain have called out the idiocy of the rhetoric which led to this shutdown.

So when Cruz stands there giving a speech asking why the government is keeping people out of these memorials, someone needs to hand this fool a mirror.

Because it’s him and his fellow Republicans that are the reason why these memorials are closed.
