Anyone know if President Obama intends to perform background checks on the Syrian rebels before providing them weapons?
Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) June 18, 2013

Oh, senator! That was beautiful. No wonder it has been retweeted nearly 3,000 times and counting.

Twitter users agreed and gasped for breath over Sen. Ted Cruz’s zinger.

Tweet of the day and worthy of a salute:

Heh.

This Twitter user offers up a depressing exit question:

Thanks bunches, lapdogs!

But on the bright side:

Amen.

Never change, senator.

I’m far too cynical for my own good.

I remember when Chris Christie used to make me think it was possible to find a principled Republican.

I remember when I thought Paul Ryan was principled and ready to fight the communists.

I remember when Marco Rubio seemed like a man of principle.

Now, I just wait for the GOPe and Washington corruption to get to Ted Cruz.

Nice that he says what a lot of Americans are saying and thinking to themselves. Does anyone check their backgrounds like they do ours. That was a great comeback for this mess we are in.

Looks like Sergio beat me to the obligatory “Larry The Cable-guy” quote.

I am SOOOOO happy I’m in Texas now.

Great question, but I suspect that knowing they’re anti-American terrorists, and that the weapons are likely to be smuggled into, and used against us, was what helped them pass obama’s background check.

Has McCain taken to the floor of the Senate and condemned the remark yet?

Way to go Ted!

Obama will go down in history as one of the worst and most corrupt Presidents of all time.

Hoot! No checks are needed. They are Muslims and therefore pre-approved.
