Skip to comments.Ted Cruz to Barack Obama: Take tour ‘elsewhere’
Posted on 11/06/2013 7:23:52 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz wants President Barack Obama to know that he should take his broken promises tour elsewhere, according to a statement his office released Wednesday, just hours before Obama is supposed to speak in the Lone Star State.
President Obamas trip to Texas brings nothing with it but broken promises, the freshman Republican senator said in the statement. He promised that Americans could keep their health care plans. We were told premiums would go down, that jobs would be created. And we now know these are all false promises.
Cruzs comments come as the president visits Dallas to promote the Affordable Care Act as well as speak at a fundraiser.
[I]n spite of all Texas has done to resist the biggest entitlement program of this generation, Obamacare is reducing health care options, increasing costs and hurting jobs, the statement said. It has no place in Texas and must be repealed.
President Obama should take his broken promises tour elsewhere so Texans can continue focusing on the solutions that have allowed our state to become and remain the nations economic and job creation powerhouse, Cruz added.
The White House had pushed back against the notion that this is a politically motivated visit.
This isnt a political issue. This is about making sure people where they live have access to good quality, affordable health care, said David Simas, White House Deputy Senior Adviser for Communications and Strategy.
I love that guy!
God bless Sen Ted Cruz and Texas!! I hope our Gov told 0 the same thing.
Good! It’s great to finally see someone telling liar Obama where to get off.
Go Ted Go .
I think it’s pretty obvious by now this Obamacare is going to crash and burn in a big way and Obama will go down as the worst POTUS in history —Oh wait! No need for that! Democrats will just blame Republicans and Republicans will run and crawl into a fetal position and the low info low IQ voters will believe it then Hitlery Clinton will run in 2016 and will win and we start all over again with this BS.
Obama talks to Texans like we are as stupid as his followers.
Well, “ homey don’t play that....”
Stay out of Texas you POS.
In a statement, Perry said the president was trying to "salvage his ill-conceived and unpopular program from a Titanic fate."
He noted that Medicaid already consumes a quarter of the state budget, and said Texas won't accept a "one-size-fits-all Washington mandate."
Perry added: "Texans aren't the reason Obamacare is crumbling. Obamacare is the reason Obamacare is crumbling."
Go Ted Go!
Run the turkey out of Texas.
“I love that guy!”
MSNBC tomorrow: “Shades of Confederacy in Cruz’ ‘Threat’ to First Black President”
Let’s see, a President worshipped as the second coming by his party visiting Dallas in November. Let’s hope this isn’t a sequel.
Imagine the “Obama broken promises apology tour”. His writers would need he better part of a year to compile all of the broken promises, and then put them into writing and into Obama’s teleprompter. The speech for his tour would take a whole day to read, and he’d get whiplash from all the head turns reading the teleprompter.
But, at the end of the speech, he’d still say it wasn’t his fault, and it was Bush’s and the tea party’s fault.
This should be the unified response of every single Republican.
Cruz is rapidly becoming my number one choice for 2014.
He, Mike lee and Louie Gohmert, honest men among crooks and thieves.
Do not go near the Dallas Book Depository!!!!!!!/S
Will women think less of me if I admit to having a man crush?
Do not go near the Dallas Book Depository!!!!!!! No /s!
Dang a true conservative with hugh balls. =)
Anyone hear anything from Rick Perry lately? Wasn’t obama supposed to give him a stern talking-to while in Texas?
The Barack Obama Broken Promises Tour
why republicans are all not using this phrase anytime a camera’s on them is beyond me.
The GOPe loves Soetoro.
Good for Senator Cruz, I wish everyone would say this and mean it.
“MSNBC tomorrow: Shades of Confederacy in Cruz Threat to First Black President”
“Cruz is just a crazy, reich-wing racist that hates the idea of having a black man for President! Therefore, you must ignore him, to stay in the ‘Popular!’ Club”
Then liberals, and we, can all say "It really is the Republicans' fault."
God bless Texas.
President Obama came to Texas to fundraise. Since that is a partisan political activity, he needs to include some government “promotion of services” appearances as well to get Uncle Sam to pick up his travel expenses.
Nothng will ever improve so long as this pos is in the wh
Ted and Sarah are busy analyzing and preparing for the ‘14 Tsunami, particularly in the Senate.
It would be interesting to have them explain what real help Obama actually being there will bring, since none of this is Obama’s fault and there was nothing he could have done about any of it anyway...
And it would be interesting to have them explain why he wasn’t in Texas and every other state long before this, if his being there was somehow supposed to protect the people...
What you’ve said is absolutely correct. Obama is fundraising and has to invent some “day job” excuse to have the taxpayers pay for his exorbitant travel expenses.
Obama is also trying to take Rick Perry to task for NOT setting up one of the State exchanges or expanding Medicaid.
Partisan political activity, if you ask me.
Yeah we have to move fast with this. Here we are almost in 2014 with just 2 years left. Either Cruz takes over the Repub party and we kick these RINOs under the table or we are going to have to start a 3rd party, but this has to happen NOW because if we wait any longer that is exactly what is going to happen: We’re going to get mega-RINOs like Christie or Bloomberg running for the WH and the Treason party will kick our ass again and we’ll have Hillary as POTUS. This ain’t no joke, we’ve see the incredible damage one socialist like Obama can do, this country will not survive Hillary. It would be like nuking the Titanic after it hit the iceberg.
Shades of Confederacy in Cruz
Pretty assinine to say of a Canadian born person.
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Never going to happen. The political class in DC has too much invested in this now...the Government Party (GP) will do all in it's power to fix any problems as they cme creating leeegislative fix after legislative fix until the whole system becomes so over=fixed that it's completely unworkable and then has to be replaced by a single payer system. Full blown socialized medicine brought to you by both wings of the GP!
Shades of the Confederacy and Americas first mixed up racially motivated pres.. ent. The war between the states, states rights not overbearing centralized goof offs called the Feds.
I'm not convinced it will under his administration.......they will keep it alive until he's out of office...I sometimes think that's all they want....just to keep it alive and that all these “glitches” are so when it falls it will be after the election and they will blame the Republicans. But DIMS will still tout ‘Obamas signature’ accomplishment as a success if it weren't for the Republicans.
I have had my Cruz 2016 bumper sticker on my car since July. Bob
Will women think less of me if I admit to having a man crush?
One would hope so! lol
Well, if you must know, John Cornyn was clearing his throat, and was about to say the same thing, but Cruz beat him to it. No word on why Mr. Cornyn needed to clear his throat..... Bob
