Ted Cruz to Barack Obama: Take tour ‘elsewhere’
politico.com ^ | November 06, 2013 | JOSE DELREAL

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 Obama’s 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.”

Cruz’s 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 “It has no place in Texas and must be repealed.”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 nation’s economic and job creation powerhouse,” Cruz added.

The White House had pushed back against the notion that this is a politically motivated visit.

“This isn’t 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 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.

Looks like Perry did take a swipe at 0, too....

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."

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.

I'm not a designer, but I have an idea for the design cover...

It could look like a book, as thick as War and Peace, or as thick as the 2000 pages of the Obamacare bill.

Just got done reading the Leperchaun's book Killing Kennedy. Even in J. Edgar Hoover's FBI, they were so sure any potential assassin would be a right winger that they closed the file on Lee Harvey Oswald a couple of months before JFK's trip to Dallas.

There is more fascinating stuff I learned from a Dutchman who has researched the incident extensively.

You forgot:
“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”

And the Republicans will do something really smart, like run Mike Bloomberg as a "Republican", or Chris Christie, "conservative", or Lindsay Graham or Mitch McConnell.

Then liberals, and we, can all say "It really is the Republicans' fault."

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.

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.

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!

<...”I think it’s pretty obvious by now this Obamacare is going to crash and burn in a big way”...>

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.
