No. She didn't.

cmunic8r99: No. She didn't.


She didn't come across as anything subby mentioned, but she did seem to be the least insane.
Still crazy, but mumbling-to-herself in the diaper aisle as opposed to climbing a clocktower with a sniper rifle.

hubiestubert: By "reasonable, intelligent and thoughtful one" Smitty must mean in a relative sense...


Yes indeed.  in comparison to the OTHER whack-a-loons quoted in the article, she at least seems like the one who could tie her own shoes and be allowed around pointed objects without supervision.   The sanest inmate in the Nuthouse, if you will

So it boils down to:

-- Yeah, Cruz has the same issues as Obama, and I don't think he's qualified to run.

-- Sometimes, you have to use the same dirty tactics back at the enemy, so even if Cruz isn't eligible, who cares, he's better than Obama.

-- fark you you dirty liberals, you'll do anything to turn around the REAL issue that Obama sealed everything, lied about everything, and is farking my dog at this very instant in my back yard.
 
2013-08-21 02:03:02 PM
I would say something else to you to, you piece of scum. At least Senator Cruz has a valid birth certificate, something your illegal thug can't even produce.


He does? And you know this... how? Did you go to Canada and personally examine the raised seal?

all true, but that's still a far cry from "reasonable, intelligent and thoughtful".

Did they ask Hillary? Since she was the one that started it in 2008.
 
2013-08-21 02:35:09 PM
So basically it's "since Obama got away with it, you have to let Cruz do it too and it's mean of you to even suggest all the things we spent the last five years screaming about".

Ok, Orly Taitz gets 1/2 point for being consistent.  But minus several thousand points for ignoring the definition on "natural born citizen" we've been using since any of us were born.
 
2013-08-21 02:35:19 PM
The difs are that Cruz 1) Denounced his Canadian pob and 2) didn't try to hide it. Obama, on the other hand, has kept his birth certificate shrouded in secrecy and, to the best of my knowledge, has only denounced the actions of one country, namely, the USA.

That's the dif.

why make a good man like Cruz obey it

Good man?  That's nuthouse crazy.

Just about half the country apparently things "good man" is denoted by an (R) or (D) after their name.

Who?  Rafael Cruz?

So ashamed of his heritage he calls himself "Ted"
 
2013-08-21 02:43:31 PM
Well, she was pretty calm compared to some of those commenters.

They're so precious.  Not one consideration of the implications of Cruz's being foreign-born in their statements.  All attack and insane vitriol for the President.

What fine Americans they are.
 
2013-08-21 02:45:16 PM
You will lie, cheat, smear, intimidate, everything, to protect that illegal Marxist thug you helped put in the Oval Office to destroy this country from the inside.

Hmmm...but it wasn't Obama's father who fought alongside Castro to overthrow a government and install Communism.

No body on his "side" does anything of the sort.
 
2013-08-21 02:48:12 PM
I can't wait for this whole Birther movement to simply vanish, it's hogwash, ignorant, time consuming & rape.

It was a manufactured issue, still is, & i don't care to even promote or contribute to the idea that it should be an issue for Mr. Cruz or any other future presidential hopeful.

IF a candidates citizenship was/is an issue, it is something that can be verified within minutes & put to rest that very same minute, for ever and ever until the sun puts the earth to sleep, amen.

Oh, c'mon.  That's beside any valid point.  If you're really going to invoke grandfather clauses, don't forget Prescott Bush once tried to overthrow the American government, and his grandson grew up to be the finest President we've ever had.
 
2013-08-21 02:52:54 PM
I watched a Frontline called 'Bush's War' about the planning and execution of the Iraq war, and Richard Armitage.was the only one that came across as halfass knowing what he was doing.

Egypt
Palestine
Israel
Russia
China

All of this in 3 pages of Google "Obama denounces" *.  If you can't even find this using the best of your knowledge, you aren't trying very hard.

* There are also links to Obama denouncing the GOP's kindergarten antics and pasotr Wright, but they aren't countries.
 
2013-08-21 02:58:59 PM
what i would like to point out, regarding Ted denouncing his Canadian citizenship, knowing now that we can throw citizenship around like a glow stick at a rave.

remember that U.S. citizen that was denied due process by Obama admin when he was targeted by a drone & died in a car with other known terrorists? ya, you know how some people like to bring up the idea that he was still a citizen and should have been afforded the rights that we all enjoy? then they go on to suggest that Obama will drone U.S. citizens for fun & that our constitution is under attack?  ...

Bahh! never mind, i think i am trying to argue with myself.
 
2013-08-21 03:01:02 PM
illegal Marxist thug

Serious political commentary. What makes him a thug? Or illegal?

As much of a constitutional conservative as I am, in my opinion, we are at war. At war with the communist left that wants to dilute and destroy America.

I'm always intrigued why right wing nutjobbers think Obama wants to "destroy America". What is his endgame?

You see, Cruz is the perfect candidate.

Can't argue with that.
 
2013-08-21 03:02:28 PM
The thing I like about Ted Cruz is he's a real american.  He doesn't hide his heritage behind some nickname, he goes by Ted and all american name.  I mean Barry, excuse me Barack HUSSIEN Obama tried to hide his heritage his whole life. Unlike the patriot Ted Cruz.  I mean it's not like he has some name like Rafeal or some other foreign name he is trying to hide from people.  He also completely solutes his roots and doesn't hide his fathers role in over throwing those dirty cubans.

Ted Cruz a real american for real americans.

Let's look closer at your links:

1) Obama denounces Egypt massacre, not Egypt itself.
2) Youtube video - cannot be played at work
3) Your link supports your claim here. Obama has no problem bashing and denouncing the only peaceful democracy in the Middle East, our friends the Israelis.
4) George Soros Funded Think Progress - Will not click
5) China - ftfa you cite ""If China would simply let the market work on its own we would have no objections, but their policies currently are preventing that from happening and they go against the very rules that China agreed to follow," Obama said." Oooo... scathing rebuke!
 
2013-08-21 03:04:38 PM
Roughly from one of the articles comments: Cruz recants his Canadian birth Right to deal with taxes on money made abroad.... NO Canada does not tax you on money made in other countries. Otherwise Republican Prime Minister Stephen Harper would be taxed on all that Keystone pipeline shares he owns.

/In other news: Birthers admit that Ted Cruz's mother is a whore and her Vagina grants automatic U.S. citizenship(just like McCains mother). Even to his Cuban Dad. And all the sailors lining up at her port for U.S. citizenship.

Yep.

Personally, I believe Obama is eligible to be POTUS.  I believe Cruz is eligible to be POTUS.

That said, I'm enjoying the spittle-spewing, drooling, racist, semi-literate,Teahadist morons twisting themselves into knots and working themselves into a lather over this whole thing.
 
2013-08-21 03:08:03 PM
did Cruz assume a SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER from a state where he NEVER lived,

Why does anyone think that means anything?  SSNs are assigned based on the zip code used on the envelope you mail the form in... in.

Somewhere Randolph has wagered Mortimer than he could find a GOP candidate who ticks all the same "AIN'T 'MURCAN!" boxes used on Obama to see if the rubes will tie themselves in knots so convoluted as to make the Phrygians vomit in order to say "yeah, but this is different."

A dollar is changing hands.

"Obama is from Kenya. Kenya is a dark and mysterious foreign place, emphasis on 'dark'. Cruz is from Canada. Canada is close to us and filled with friendly light-skinned people. Canada is just America's garage, where we keep our excess stores of politeness in case of future need."
