Skip to comments.Ted Cruz Posters Spawn More Pop Art (1:20 video)
Posted on 03/17/2014 1:35:06 PM PDT by virgil283
Ted Cruz has been earning himself somewhat of a bad-boy reputation in political circles these days. Hes been characterized as a bully by his colleagues and the left has demonized Cruz as a rogue Tea Party Terror bent on destroying the fine, upstanding, hard-working men and women of Congress.
Recently mysterious posters of Cruz photoshopped onto a tattooed torso with a cigarette in his mouth began popping up all over Los Angeles..... Apparently Sabos art has inspired others to pay their own form of tribute to the GOPs bad boy. This work of art popped up on YouTube just this morning and features Cruz photoshopped onto some of the most iconic pictures of decades past. Could this be the beginning of one of the most effective (or infective, as it were) political campaigns in recent years?...."

I find it ridiculous and demeaning
I understand your position, but I would also ask you to reconsider the impact these images can have on a generation of Zombies.
They don’t care to pay attention to policy positions or political statements. From their perspective, all politicians lie and it doesn’t matter.
They want “Attitude”.
I think these images are fantastic.
They make me retch. Seriously they do. I guess he will be twerking with Miley Virus in the next one?
I think these images are fantastic.”
I don’t know that I would use the word fantastic but they are attracting enough interest that more people will now know his name and maybe care enough to find out what he stands for. He is getting press from sources and people that no amount of TV advertising money could attract. Certainly an “out of the box” approach to getting name recognition.
It’s the image of a rebel.
Powerful image in America, and well-loved by kids.
It’s actually fitting for Cruz.
Yeah, me too. We need some respectable and classy get it done type to lead us out of them horror show we’ve been living the last 6 years. JMO
If those posters were true, he wouldn’t find much conservative support
they were thinking of Boner
I’m not offended, but you can bet the liberals will come out with their own versions.
I like it. Think outside if the box. Heroic rebel image.
GeronL, I respectfully disagree.
There is a very large portion of our culture that is sick and tired of “politics as usual”. These folks voted for 0bama and would vote Democrat again considering how the media portrays Republicans.
In addition, there is, IMHO, an opportunity to capture these young voters given the NSA, IRS, 0bamacare crap.
Excellent political street art. I approve.
“We need some respectable and classy get it done type to lead us out of them horror show weve been living the last 6 years. JMO”
uh yeah, Bob Dole, John Mccain, Mitt Romney, pretty respectable guys and they sure did look good in a suit!
The Middle Finger Up picture pretty much represents my attitude towards Ubama the Democrats and the GOPe.
“They make me retch. Seriously they do. I guess he will be twerking with Miley Virus in the next one?”
No, if that is done it will be done by a Liberal in an attempt to counter this poster.
The left will not stop any line of attack until it is used against them. When that happens they are outraged. So, maybe Hitlery twerking? El-Presidente in drag?
these images are pro-Cruz?
because they do not seem thar way.
go ahead and alienate the base to pander to the freaks and tell me how it works out. Ted Cruz was the only politician I liked and had respect for. Why ruin that with by promoting this gutter ghetto filth that mocks what I stand for?
Ted needs to distance himself from this trash!
as heroic as an MS-13 drive by
It’s not about the image, in and of itself, it is all about an attitude.
