Ted Cruz Flashes His Churchill Tattoo While Touting Obamacare Alternative
http://www.mediaite.com/ ^

Posted on 04/01/2014 9:17:45 AM PDT by Lucky9teen

On Tuesday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) showed off an April Fools’ Day Winston Churchill bicep tattoo, fooling at least one co-host of Fox & Friends.

Cruz was on the show to tout his plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act and expand health savings accounts. Towards the end of the segment, co-host Steve Doocy asked the senator whether it’s true he has some new ink. Cruz rolled up a sleeve and showed off a cigar-smoking mug of Churchill painted in black on his arm, inspired by the Los Angeles street art depicting the lawmaker as a tattooed greaser.

While Doocy and Elisabeth Hasselbeck laughed at the faux-ink, Brian Kilmeade seemed genuinely interested in whether it was real.

Ultimately, it turned out this was a temporary tat. Because imagine how much a tattooed man would suffer in an Iowa caucus…

Ted is beginning to use a bit more humor, as did the Gipper so many years ago.

There are far, far worse tattoos of historical figures that one could be saddled with.

I’m thinking of getting a Churchill tattoo as well, except mine will be all of him. And full sized.

Understood. But I always think back to that tattoo my dad had. The one he got after spending time in the Army from 1939 to occupation in Germany in 1947-48.

He was proud he was transferred to the newly established Air Force, and he got that tattoo on his right forearm to show it. By the time he died in 1971, it was faded and blurry, but not to him. So when I see them, I always wonder what’s behind them.

My father was in the Navy during the 2nd WW and career as well as reserves. He never had a tattoo, and very much disliked them. I guess I take after him.

He’s the guy.

He should be the nominee. You need this nowadays to reach the office. Sad but true.

He can pull it off.

I’ve said it before, but Cruz is one of the few on our side to really get the pop culture and be able to use it naturally. He makes great references that do not seem fake like most politicians (on both sides). Clearly Obama does this well, and it is an asset. Paul Ryan also does it pretty well, too, although not with the same effectiveness. It’s real and natural, but not as effective as Cruz.

There are few others that do this well in politics. Most seem contrived and fake.

I really like how he rose above the notion that it ridiculed him and has turned it to his advantage. Quite a contrast from the current microscopically thin-skinned Potus.

Does anybody remember who removed the Churchill bust because he has so many problems with him and the Empire via his daddy's preachings?

Oh this is such a slam @ "Da-One" and am I the only one to see it or you have and haven't said it?

Oh and it is his right arm! LOL !!!

I agree, and not every politician has that ability.

That's hilarious.

Leftists will go apoplectic. They hate humor. Well, good natured humor.
