Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, accused President Barack Obama of using the Sandy Hook school shooting for political gain on Thursday.

((snip))

"It is saddening to see the president today, once again, try to take advantage of this tragic murder to promote an agenda that will do nothing to stop violent crime, but will undermine the constitutional rights of all law-abiding Americans," Cruz said in statement.

I like Cruz so far, but...duh.

Cruz needs to listen to someone not so...hmmm...diplomatic.

This is NOT the age for diplomacy—BURY PC speech-here’s how:

Ted has Steel Grapes and seems to have a good head on his shoulders.

He need to highlight how insane it is to legislate away cars or swimming pools because they endanger the chilruns.
Get the focus off “assault weapons” and “high cap clips” which are just ridiculous terms that can have the definitions shifted.

Cruz and Lee get it. They stay on offense and on message at all times. No more capitulating to the opposition. The Bush/Rove/McCain/Romney era needs to be over...for the sake of the nation’s survival.

The Iowa newspaper that posted the map of unprotected schools was just pushing zero’s agenda. I really think they and zero were pushing for a new crisis to occur since the Newtown shootings has faded from the 24/7 news cycle. zero needs a new crisis to get his gun control enacted.

Everyone KNOWS that Libs will sacrifice children to get their agenda through. Sad, isn’t it. There was a time when NOBODY would even think such a thing. Now it’s the first thing anyone whose head ain’t up his butt will assume.

I'm tellin' ya. This is the ticket. Republican winner wannabes?

All you have to do is speak the truth, clearly and without the kowtowing, about the Usurper.

There's a lotta love in this room for the candidate who simply tells the truth about the Emperor's state of dress.

Now is that hard?

Yes, he obviously is, Mr. Cruz.

So, what’s to be done about it?

Obama is a fascist dictator. Usually the people will turn against them unless, of course, they’re buying support with other peoples’ money. So I don’t know what can be done. Just hope we can survive it, I guess.

To get an idea of how he operates, look back to the spar with DiFi and then back to a cartoon long ago with the two vultures setting on a branch. One says to the other, “Patience my ass, I’m gonna kill something!”

The patient one knows the meals will come to him. The impatient one only listens to his stomach.

Cruz asked the question that she launched into a false indignant tirade. He patiently gave her all the time she wanted to try and obfuscate the question and when she was finished, in a very calm and measured response, thanked her for her views on her self described qualifications and experiences but then reminded her she didn’t answer the question.

She relented with a simple two word answer. “Obviously, No”

Now he could have gone after her with his own tirade as you appeared to want, but his patience to let her and her buddies, Schmuckie Schumer and Depends Leahy, all look like the fools they are in one shot.

Game, set, match. Now he is setting his volley for game two since Obama was not satisfied the first beating was not bad enough. Now “The Beast” as my wife refers to him, and ironically was shown in episode 3 of “The Bible”, is doubling down for what will prove out to be another BI-itch slap down twice as bad as the first one when even his Universal Background Checks can’t get 50 votes in the Senate.

Why oh why oh why can't we have a WHOLE party where this is the automatic reaction, thought and statements of the party.

Ted Cruz mentioned that again in his speech last night at the Nuceces County Republican Party Lincoln Dinner last night aboard the USS Lexington (CV-16).

Sen. Cruz is 100% correct-Obama is using New town to push his Gun Control Nazi agenda. And I’m sure the Liberal MSM will attack Cruz soon

Might not be a bad idea to keep tweaking McCain's nose - he might go so far over the deep end that only the Democrats would have him - not much of a step for him anyhow...

Well, I like Ted Cruz a lot, let me just say that, however, even though he did make them look like fools, that isn’t going to stop them at all.

They are going to continue regardless of what they were made to look like.

What I’m more concerned about is that Swinestein and Shmuckey are making the American citizens look like fools.

This is true. The senate needs 99 more people just like him.

I know I seem negative, Cruz is very effective, but one man such as him is not enough to set this country back on course.

I mean almost all of the rest of the GOP is just...I can’t even think of words low enough to describe them.
