Ted Cruz Continues to Prove He’s Out of His Mind, Compares President Obama to Little Girls

ted-cruz-moronMaybe I should start a movement in Texas that says if you voted for Ted Cruz at any time during his campaign for United States Senator, you’re immediately disqualified from ever voting again.  What the heck were these people thinking?  Well, I guess the better question is, “Were these people thinking?” to which I’m starting to believe the answer to that question is a resounding “no.”

It’s pretty clear that I’m not a big fan of the Republican party in general, but there are those conservatives who hold a special place in my heart for being absolutely detestable.

In fact, I made a list of my top 10 most detestable conservatives you can check out here.

But Ted Cruz is just becoming a bigger laughing-stock by the day.  Reality has absolutely no impact on what this man says.  I just covered how he continues to claim that he never pushed for a government shutdown (even though anyone with half a brain knows he was the one leading the charge).

Now he’s taken to continuing his propaganda against “Obamacare,” this time comparing President Obama to his 5-year-old and 3-year-old daughters.

Cruz said:

“Over 5 million people trusted President Obama when he said, ‘if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.’  We now know that statement wasn’t true. If he was actually taking responsibility for his actions, he would number one say, ‘I am sorry,’ but then number two, and number two is much, much more important, he would act to fix it.”

You know, Gretchen, at home I have two little girls, a 5-year-old and 3-year-old.  One of my daughters punches the other. If they just say, ‘I’m sorry,’ and they keep hitting the kid, it doesn’t mean a whole lot. For President Obama’s apology to mean something, he’s got to stop hitting the American people, stop taking away their health care, stop driving up their premiums, stop making it worse.”

And here we go with the whole “you can keep your plan” thing once again.  Yes, everyone (including many liberals) has basically called out President Obama for this comment.  Then despite what Cruz says here about the president not apologizing – he actually did.

Oh, and he offered a solution to allow Americans to keep their existing plans for an additional year as well.  Another lie Cruz tried to perpetuate here.

His little analogy he tried to use where he compares the President of the United States of America to his two very small daughters doesn’t make any sense.  In fact, the simplicity (when comparing it to a much more complex situation), and its absurdity, only further proves how small-minded Ted Cruz really is.

The total disrespect these conservatives constantly show toward the President of the United States is astounding.  It’s one thing for some right-wing media pundit or conservative personality to show disrespect toward the president, but Ted Cruz is a United States Senator.  Then again, the only person Ted Cruz cares about is himself.

I really believe he’d be fine seeing this country burn to the ground, the entire GOP crumble and every American starving in the streets if it benefited his political aspirations.

And of course what would an anti-Obamacare rant be without the usual hand-picked lies about higher premiums and taking away health care from millions of Americans.

Even if people were being forced to switch health insurance plans, that doesn’t mean they lost health care – it just means they had to switch plans.  And for the record, health insurance companies change and cancel existing plans all the time.  This isn’t exactly something that’s new.

I also love in this right-wing rhetoric how they completely ignore the millions of Americans who have gained access thanks to “Obamacare.”  In fact, the latest numbers show around 9 million Americans have gained access to health care thanks to the Affordable Care Act.  A number Cruz (and basically every other Republican) seems to never mention.

And to think, we still have at least 5 more years of Ted Cruz’s ridiculousness to suffer through.  At least his probable presidential run in 2016 should make for great comedy.

    Seriously the rest of the country needs to consider throwing Texas out of the Union. Louis Gohmert, Rick Perry and yes Ted ( The Canadian) Cruz. Yawl couldn’t find a born and bred Texas boy to be a stupid ass yawl had to go out of the country? I do not think that was necessary situation. You have a lot of home grown morons.

    • Lazyladysailor

      First off Raymond, it’s y’all. Yawl is a type of sail boat. Second, not all of us Texans voted for Cruz, Perry, Bush, etc and don’t think too highly of any of them either. Third, I’m not so sure a resident of Florida has much room to talk about Texas’ elected officials.

      • Quacker

        Ah snap! LOL! Actually agree with both of you. Texas, Florida Tennessee (where I’m living/working) is just as bad Being from Oregon, then coming to the South, WHAT A CHANGE! People in this country just need to “see” how different these GOP 100% controlled states really are.

      • white trash religious teaparty

        whats wrong with jethro tull’s “LIVING IN THE PAST”???

      • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

        First of all I am not afraid to use my real name secondly no one else but Texans can be held responsible for those Asshats . Third be sure we get rid of the asshats unlike Texans who keep them. Want me to name who we got rid of lately and compare that to your nonexistent list?

      • Pipercat

        Well first off I’m not a Texan, I just live here. Second, all of the big cities in Texas are pretty blue. Lastly, my congressman is Joaquin Castro and his star is in ascension. Change is coming whether the locals believe it or not. Oh, one more thing. Watch Wendy Davis, she’s got a tough fight and the wind is against her, but she sure has the GOP scared enough to spew effluent as opposed to policy.

      • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

        Please do something first then try to claim some glory. Personally I like Wendy a lot. She is a lady with a lot of gumption and ability but before you can claim anything she needs to win. As for the rest well it’s like this a name here and there simply will not overcome the shame you should feel with that I am not a Texan statement. Either you are or you arten’t that middle of the road begging off stuff is for Republicans trying to look like Democrats.

      • Pipercat

        I never claimed any glory, I stated fact. Why should I feel ashamed for anything. What’s a shame is your misguided cynicism. Seems to me, turning Texas purple would be a goal most Progressive types should embrace, encourage or, at the minimum, suck it up and keep personal prejudices to themselves.

      • James Worcester

        Ray, it appears that Pipercat is, in fact, a Texas voter with some common sense. No need to berate her for the sins of the Teabillies. Would be lots more productive to attempt to knock some sense into the toofless wonders who elected Cruz, Perry, Gomert, et al.

      • Raymond J Ambrozaitis

        Ok let me try to simplify this. Had more Texans voted differently those idiots would not be where they are today. Hence I will continue to hold Texans responsible. Lord knows this Massachusetts boy recently retired to Florida is doing his part here to the best of my ability and that is what I expect from Texans. I hope they do rid themselves of the Gohmerts and Perrys and Cruzs. Hell I would even like to see Dubya rode out of town on a rail . Until then well guess I am results oriented not hollow promises accepting. Just as I do not accept one of our moronic imbeciles in the Senate from the State of Florida I can’t say ok yawl are doing great. By the way Yawl was intentional I love getting the semantical and grammatical police working also)

      • suburbancuurmudgeon

        Pipercat, you have my sympathy.

      • white trash religious teaparty

        im a native of south florida ,,,and I agree

      • James Worcester

        I agree with most of what you say, but when an official of any states actions adversely effect the rest of the nation, as Comrade Cruz has, I believe it is incumbent upon ALL citizens to make note, and I truly believe there should be avenues in place for a national recall of said officials.

      • The anti-GOP

        Are you with the department of corrections?

  • Edward Krebbs

    Note: in Cruz’s statement on saying “I’m sorry” he admits that Obama apologized. Yet, statements from Cruz and the Faux News the narrative is that Cristie apologized for the bridge but Obama didn’t apologize for the problems in enrolling for the ACA. COULD WE PLEASE KEEP OUR LIES STRAIGHT ?

    • Edward Krebbs

      Albeit with one of the classic signs of liars: he puts weasel room and distance into what he says. While insinuating that Obama apologized, he doesn’t come straight out and say it.

  • tmf354

    Teddy boy wants Obama to fix insurance companies dropping people off their plans? I suppose he wants the administration to require them to keep those people on their plans. So he can then come back and complain the government is telling insurance companies how to do their business and should butt out.

  • Veritas vos Liberabit

    Ted Cruz seems to have an abnormality of the amygdala.

    • Pipercat

      Yep, he sits on them…

  • William Valenti

    Ted Cruz is America’s kidney stone: irritating, painful, useless, and soon to pass from the body politic.

    • John Masters

      I wish I could join in believing he’ll soon pass, but I’m afraid the stranglehold of Koch money in these deep red states is going to continue to allow goobers like Cruz and Gohmert to stay around.

      • surfjac

        All the money may be there, and the districts gerry-mandered in favor of the right…but people still have to vote and need to vote for their own best interests.

    • surfjac

      Apple Cider Vinegar dissolves kidney stones…why not send mr. cruz some?

      • white trash religious teaparty

        Im sending him some NEW NIKE sneakers,,,,,with an anonymous letter thanking him for his patriotism: inside the sneakers are many many many live bed bugs and 1000’s of eggs

  • MBDElf

    Ted Cruz is like a DVD-ROM — spins the truth at 30,000+ RPM. That pathological liar couldn’t tell the truth if his next lie would KILL him.

    And, OMG. . .some fuckin’ woman allowed him to BREED?

    • white trash religious teaparty

      the persuasiveness of money and alcohol

  • diannkirby

    Instead of Ted Cruz’s daughters punching each other, they should be punching HIM.

    • white trash religious teaparty

      or chemically castrating him

  • Mike Williams

    What do really expect from a Canadian born Cuban with slight American heritage? He is 2/3rds not American. I think most of his support comes from Texas who is really just trying to get him out of Texas public office.

  • Mike Williams

    Why do people who do not need to enroll continue to enroll?

    • Non Rep in a Republican State

      Because the republicans have told them they have to? I even had a neighbor tell me I had to enroll, despite being covered through my employer. She also said I would have to pay sales tax on my house if I resell as part of Obamacare. Which I don’t, because I don’t fall into that tax bracket.

      There’s been an INSANE amount of spin on Obamacare and what it does and doesn’t do. And the reps have taken advantage of that spin to confuse everyone.

      • Mike Williams

        They lied? Them bastards…..If it wasn’t for Obama, the GOP would still be a source of hope and truth.

  • Kevin Daugherty

    No way he can run in ’16 his butt will be toast by then. I wish he and Sarah would run together; jus think of the comedian fodder !

  • Veritas vos Liberabit

    Teddy is the perfect example of the insane running the asylum.

  • The anti-GOP

    While I agree with the point of the article, Ted Cruz is an evil bastard, I do not appreciate how you minimize the effects of Obamacare. To keep the “plan I like” it is costing me $6K per year more. It is great that 9 million more people have access to healthcare, but the fact that average Americans are picking up the tab while the rich get richer is all on Obama. Apology not accepted!

  • Ram Garcia

    My condolences to the girls… They have to live with Ted (Turd) Cruz..Hopefully they have more of the mother than the father in them… But then, again, she married this moron…Imagine, at the age of 10 and 8, they will be asked by other kids, “Your father cost our country 25 billion dollar???”..Who knows what lame brain schemes he’s going to pull in the next five year for the Tea Turd Party…If they told him to go run into a wall, he’d probably do it…Reminds me of Kevin Bacon in Animal House, “Thank You Sir, may I have another!”…

  • suburbancuurmudgeon

    How about profiling the idiots who vote for him? I’d really like to understand their logic…if there is any.
