Cruzing to Crazy Isle

Oh dear Lord how awful can this get?

Ted Cruz’s logic twisting machine has got it floored in neutral and pumping propane.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday argued that President Barack Obama and Democrats, not Republicans, were the ones trying to shut down the federal government because he insisted on funding a health care reform law that was passed in 2010.

No, he’s serious.  It’s President Obama who is causing them to shut down the government because he’s insisting that the votes were counted and Obamacare won.  Who died and made him President?

“We have voted to fund the federal government. We want to fund the federal government. Why is President Obama threatening to shut down the federal government? Because he wants force Obamacare down people’s throats.’”

One reporter pointed out to Cruz that polls showed that most people thought that defunding a law and shutting down the government was not the proper way to govern.

The Texas senator, however, argued that some polls had been crafted as tools of advocacy.

Actually, he wanted to say that polls are tools of the devil as are the electorate.

Y’all, this is where we’ve come to.  It’s Ted in Wonderland.  You could have one eye tied behind your back and still see that this man is nuts.

Thanks to Steve for the heads up and John for the graphic.

  1. Love the graphic from John. I’d really like to see this on billboards all over Texas. It might wake some people up from their Cruz stupor they’ve been in.

  2. I love that graphic, too! How utterly appropriate!! They all refuse to listen to the folks who are declaring that Obamacare is working for them and to leave it the hell alone!

  3. This man may have more college degrees than Fido has fleas but he actually knows nothing! His biggest nightmare will be when he wakes up one day and realizes that.

  4. When Jennifer Rubin (yes, the shrill shill of the Republicans in the WaPo) calls you insane for your claims on who is threatening to shut down the government, well… what can you say?

    “Actually, come to think of it, Cruz’s philosophy is a recipe to keep Senate Republicans in a permanent minority. After all, if Cruz-like characters are running things, would you trust the GOP with a Senate majority?”

    Would you trust Rafael “Ted” Cruz with a box of matches?

    Yea. OK. Does defunding the government mean Congresscritters won’t get paid?

    I am so looking forward to half price health insurance next year. Canadian Cruz can try to pry it from my cold arthritic hands, but he’d lose an appendage. Do not mess with Menopausal Italian women. We eat Canadians for light snacks.

    Kary wanted me to let you guys know about this hysterical view of Ted by Stephen Colbert.

    Yet another Republican who loudly proclaims that other (i.e. poor) people should take responsibility for their own actions, yet refuses to take personal responsibility for his own actions. We need to replace the Republican Party’s elephant emblem with a hippo – this is consistent with the Republican Party’s dream of allowing only Republicans to vote. (Making us a “hippo-cracy.”) Sorry about the bad pun.

    His nose is too short in the graphic. Way too short. And about half the Republican demographic cannot remember the Walt Disney movie it refers to anymore. (For you young ‘uns, it’s “Pinnoccio”).

  11. Just to make life worse for rethugs, remember when Obama put a paragraph in Obamacare about states (who could do a better and cheaper version of healthcare) could request to the administration to opt out (clever Obama) just count the states that have got waivers to do single payer. The number gets higher all the time (no red states that I know of)

    “I’m saying this is the South and we are proud of our crazy people. We don’t hide them up in the attic, we bring them right down to the living room and show them off. No one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family, they just ask which side they are on.”

    The crazy people in my family are on the Republican side!

  13. Carnival Cruz wants the American public to rise up and rebel against something http://trailblazersblog.dallasnews.com/2013/07/sen-ted-cruz-calls-for-public-uprising-to-defund-obamacare.html/

    WASHINGTON – Sen. Ted Cruz and a handful of tea party allies are trying to stir up public pressure – enough to persuade GOP leaders to risk a government shutdown in a confrontation with the White House.

    “We don’t have the votes, and we are unlikely to get the votes in closed-door meetings in Washington. The only way that we win this fight is if the American people rise up,” Cruz said today on a rare call with Texas reporters.

  14. Chris Matthews called Carnival Cruz a terrorist on Hardball on MSNBC tonight http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3036697#52635892

  15. Once, just once, I’d like to hear a reasonable health care option from the GOP. They hate Obama. That’s it. That’s their health care plan. Patient: I hate Obama. Doc: Tune into fox news & you’ll feel much better.

  16. Well, obviously Obama is the problem for sticking Obamacare in their way. They’ve voted to abolish it about forty times, so why hasn’t it gone away?

    And CBS added up how many hours they’d wasted doing that, and how much Congress costs per hour they’re in session, and concluded that those 40 stupid useless votes had cost us taxpayers $52 million.

    Force something down people’s throat? You mean like Republicans and all the anti-union and anti-abortion and anti-marriage equality stuff?

    Yeah, providing healthcare is so despicable and tyrannical…

    Yeah, and in other expensive news we are going to have to pony up for a THIRD special session of the Lege because these jerks can’t seem to show up and do a job they dam’ well volunteered for! Nobody conscripted them into office that I know of!! Grrrrr!
