Ted Cruz: Nigerian emailers run Affordable Care Act site
politico.com ^ | 10/22/13 | Tal Kopan

Posted on 10/22/2013 5:36:45 AM PDT by cotton1706

At a well-received “Welcome Home” speech in Houston on Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz managed to find a silver lining in the problems with the Affordable Care Act exchange website.

“You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately,” Cruz joked, according to the Houston Chronicle. “They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website.”

Cruz was speaking to a tea party crowd filling the headquarters of the King Street Patriots in his hometown Monday night, and he said it was good to be back.

“I’ve spent the past month in Washington, D.C.,” Cruz said. “It is terrific to be back in America.”

Back in Texas for a series of speaking events, Cruz stuck to many of his familiar lines, including saying he doesn’t “work for the party bosses,” that Senate Republicans allowed a “lousy deal” and that he was in the fight against Obamacare for the long haul.

Not a Nigerian e-mailer, but a Kenyan e-mailer.
Cruz had better expect the feigned charges of racism from the race pimps.

People should take warning - if you’re on a site that you think is Obamacare, and it works...

you’re being scammed.

In other news....

The Washington Redskins have decided to change the name of the team.

They are dropping the name "Washington" because it is an embarrassment.

The more I hear Ted speak, the more I like the man. He reminds me of Ronald Reagan.

Do not surrender to the left, Ted, ever.

Just when I think I can’t like what Ted Cruz is doing any more, my opinion of him only improves.
