HOWARD DEAN: 'GOD HELP US' IF CRUZ BECOMES PRESIDENT
Breitbart ^ | Aug 25, 2013 | By Tony Lee

Posted on 08/25/2013 11:20:40 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Former Vermont Gov. and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean showed that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) irritates the left as much as the Republican establishment when he declared that he was fearful that Cruz would one day become president.

"God help us if he ever gets to be anything more than the senator from Texas," Dean said on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday.

Dean was responding to an interview CNN's Candy Crowley had done earlier in the week with Cruz in which Cruz said that he would do whatever he could to encourage a "grassroots tsunami" that would convince lawmakers to defund Obamacare.

Dean dismissed Cruz as a "slick" speaker promoting "crazy" ideas from the "far right."

It seems Howard neglected to add the crazy ideas from the left. If Cruz does become president, then I would say that God did help us.

Hmmmm.
I need to pay attention to Cruz if the “screamer” Howard Dean doesn’t like him.

I'll never forget that Alan Dershowitz himself said that Ted Cruz is one of the smartest men to ever go through Harvard! Well, "duh."

Howard Dean, the liberal who was a bit too public with the agenda. His campaign had to be shuttered and blamed on a “scream tape”.

Joycelyn Elders’ was fired when she said that healthcare was going to have to be rationed because “old people are gonna die anyway” and that money needed to go to young working Americans because they were the ones who’d be paying her Social Security. Too public with the truth. Her termination was quickly blamed on suggesting that kids should be taught to masturbate.

Cruz or Palin for POTUS 2016 ...................................... Nothing would be finer than Palin vs. Hillary, boy would I love to see that. The beauty and the beast going at it for the hearts and minds of the voters. Oh wait, that’s not going to be easy, with half of the voters who love the downward direction we are going.

Good afternoon guy. I hope you are doing well.

Thanks for killing the gremlins. Can you eat gremlins? Maybe with hot sauce?

If Dean hates Ted Cruz, Ted Cruz must be a great guy.

Considering how H Dean and his Dem Socialist Party have treated God the past few decades, I am not sure Dean will be pleased by God’s response to Dean.

Leftists constantly refer to the far right, but their party has moved so far to the left that it can't even see the middle.

True..but between him and Obama, if they were only choice...I would rather have Dean. He probably would not be arming Islamist terrorists all over the Middle East or then again he might. The whole left seems enamored with them these days.

God help us!
