Canadian-born presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz will sign up for Obamacare since his wife has taken a leave of absence from Goldman Sachs to join him on the campaign trail. This is hilarious considering just yesterday he continued to say his number 1 goal once he takes office is to repeal Obamacare.

Ted Cruz told CNN‘s Dana Bash that he  “would no longer have access to health benefits through his wife’s employer, Goldman Sachs. Heidi Cruz, a managing director at the firm’s Houston office, has gone on unpaid leave for the duration of the senator’s presidential campaign and will not have access to the company’s benefits during that time.” How Bash kept a straight face is beyong me.

“Cruz’s campaign appeared caught by surprise Monday by questions about the senator’s health care.” The implosion of Ted Cruz’s presidential aspirations have begun….

Donald Trump Goes Birther: Canadian-Born Ted Cruz “has an Additional Hurdle”

Who didn’t see this coming….Donald Trump goes all birther on Canadian-born GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Trump said Cruz has “an additional hurdle” to overcome and that “you’re supposed to be born in this country” to run for president. Um, he wasted no time….

The reality television host, real estate magnate, and serial almost-presidential candidate who repeatedly demanded that President Barack Obama produce proof that he was born in Hawaii, turned his attention to Senator Ted Cruz on Monday. In an interview with MyFoxNY, Trump said that Cruz’s birthplace, Canada, could be a problem for the Texan’s presidential bid.

“Well he’s got, you know, a hurdle that nobody else seems to have at this moment,” said Trump, who was born in Queens. “It’s a hurdle and somebody could certainly look at it very seriously. He was born in Canada … if you know … and when we all studied our history lessons … you’re supposed to be born in this country, so I just don’t know how the courts would rule on it. But it’s an additional hurdle that he has that no one else seems to have.”

[..]

Trump also suggested that Cruz had borrowed some campaign language from him.

“Well, you know the line of ‘Make America Great Again,’ the phrase, that was mine I came up with about a year ago, and I kept using it and everybody’s now using it, they’re loving it, I don’t know I guess I should copyright it,” Trump said.  Source:  Bloomberg.com

I think being a natural-born American is the least of Ted Cruz’s worries. He isn’t going to get the nomination. Um, pigs will fly first. Nice to see him align himself with the right wing evangelical fanatics. That alone will keep him out of the White House. Just ask Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum how far it got them. In any case, this presidential season is bound to be hilarious, thanks to characters like Ted Cruz and Ben Carson.

Canadian-Born Ted Cruz to Launch 2016 Presidential Campaign

Canadian-Born Ted Cruz to Launch 2016 Presidential Campaign

Canadian-born U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will be the first Republican to launch a 2016 presidential bid when he makes the announcement on Monday at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. Yep, right out of the gates, he’s aligning himelf with religious fanatics.

The first-term senator from Texas will announce that he’s running for the Republican presidential nomination, according to the Houston Chronicle. He will make his official declaration Monday in Lynchburg, Virginia at Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world.

Cruz, 44, will be the first candidate to formally throw his hat in the ring for what’s expected to be a crowded GOP primary, with more than a dozen high-profile Republicans expressing serious interest in a White House run.

The Chronicle reports that Cruz will go straight to announcing his candidacy without first forming an exploratory committee, according to advisers with direct knowledge of his plans.

Cruz, armed with his trademark ostrich boots and impressive oratory skills, has quickly made a name for himself in the past two years since he started in the Senate, solidifying his brand as a conservative firebrand willing to take on establishment Republicans in Washington. Source: CNN

I wonder how the birthers will accept a presidential campaign from Ted Cruz? You will recall, they went after Obama claiming he wasn’t natural born because his father was from Kenya. Then, some suggested, and still believe (including Donald Trump), that he was actually born in Kenya. So, how will they view the presidency of someone who was born in Canada to a Cuban father? The fact is, I believe much of the birtherism rhetoric was racially-motivated.

Ted Cruz won’t be the next GOP presidential nominee. He has veered too far right and the majority of Republicans aren’t that fanatical. You will also recall he engineered a 17-day government shutdown that has left a bitter taste in the mouths of many. According to a recent hypothetical CNN/ORC International, he has 4% support among members of his party. Though it’s early in the game, there is no way Ted Cruz will garner enough support when he has insulted just about every demographic he would need to attract — blacks, gays, Hispanic, women, young voters, etc.

Donald Trump Drops “The Apprentice” to Launch Presidential Campaign

Carnival barker Donald Trump reportedly drops his “The Apprentice” show to launch a presidential campaign, WMUR-TV reports. Would love to hear his message to the black community since he insulted then-candidate Barack Obama on so many occasions, even demanding that he release his college transcripts and long-form birth certificate. Yeah, would love to see how he will campaign to “the blacks.”

WMUR-TV reports that Trump will announce his intentions Wednesday. He will reportedly head to New Hampshire on Thursday to attend an event for Rep. Steve Stepanek (R-Amherst). The Union Leader reports he has a team of New York-based political advisors and has hired staff in New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina. He also hired senior political adviser Corey Lewandowski.

This will be very hilarious to watch since he will believes in his mind that he can become our next POTUS. He will also have to release his tax returns, so it will be interesting to see how much he gives to charity and what his tax rate is. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign will crash and burn just like Rudy Giuliani’s.

 

Ben Carson Operative Jim Dornan Deletes Tweets Calling Obama ‘Dipshit,’ Among Others

Ben Carson Operative Deletes Tweet Calling Obama “the Dipshit in WH”

Jim Dornan

Presidential wannabe Dr. Ben Carson is facing some fallout over inflammatory and racist tweets by his operative, Jim Dornan.

Here’s more from Buzzfeed on Jim Dornan’s tweets:

One tweet from Dornan referred to McConnell shoving his fist up Obama’s butt. One tweet calls Ferguson protestors “thugs.” Another calls Obama a “dipshit.” One tweet calls Debbie Wasserman-Schultz a “pathetic excuse for a human being.” Two tweets call Chris Matthews and the Huffington Post “aholes.” Another tweet at Obama tells him to “bend over bitch.”

This comes after Ben Carson apologized for saying prison explains being gay is a choice, as people identifying as straight come out of prison as identifying as gay.

Jeb Bush Used Private Email Account to Discuss Military Issues While in Office

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush reportedly used a private email account while he was in office to discuss “security and military issued such as troop deployments to the Middle East and the protection of nuclear plants,” the Washington Post reports.

Bush is actively considering a run for president and has sharply criticized likely Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton for her use of a private e-mail account when she served as secretary of state. He called it “baffling” that Clinton didn’t consider the potential security risks of discussing diplomatic and national security issues by using an e-mail account not tied to a government server.An unknown number of the e-mails housed on Bush’s server were redacted or withheld from public release because they contained sensitive security issues, Bush representatives have said. Communications director Tim Miller said general policy was for Bush to discuss sensitive National Guard issues in person with only occasional briefings by e-mail that “wouldn’t contain information that should not be in the public domain.”

So, we should give him a pass because his aides say he didn’t send sensitive information, but we must immediately thrown Hillary Clinton under a bus because the Republicans can’t stand her. I wonder how long it will take for the Clinton furor to die down since Republicans are guilty of the same thing? My guess is never because they are bare-faced. They’ll still try to find a way to wiggle out of this.

 

Conspiracy Theory: Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Behind Leak of Hillary Clinton Private Email

The New York Post is reporting that  Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s key advisers, is behind the leak of Hillary Clinton private email use during her tenure as Secretary of State. Um, really? So, now Obama is sabotaging Hillary Clinton, despite her husband playing a big role in his reelection?

Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked to the press details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail address during her time as secretary of state, sources tell me.

But she did so through people outside the ­administration, so the story couldn’t be traced to her or the White House.

In addition, at Jarrett’s behest, the State Department was ordered to launch a series of investigations into Hillary’s conduct at Foggy Bottom, including the use of her expense account, the disbursement of funds, her contact with foreign leaders and her possible collusion with the Clinton Foundation.

Um, let me guess…did they get this information from a right wing lunatic? Are the Republicans that threatened by a possible Hillary Clinton presidential campaign?

Rand Paul Tweets Photo Getting Booster Shot After Ridiculous Vaccination Comment

Sen. Rand Paul was blasted for saying some vaccinations should not be mandatory and that parents “own children” not the “state.” Um, guess who took a photo getting his booster shot? GOP presidential hypocrite Dr. Rand Paul. One problem, the liberal media didn’t twist what he said…

Here’s the response on Twitter:

Rand Paul: Parents “Own” the Children, Most Vaccinations Should Be Voluntary

Rand Paul: Parents "Own" the Children, Most Vaccinations Should Be Voluntary

GOP presidential hopeful Sen. Rand Paul says parents own children and not the state, therefore vaccinations should be voluntary. How incredibility reckless for a doctor to make such a comment.

As crazy as Sen. Rand Paul is, he seems to have outdone himself this time:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) doubled down on his position that most vaccines should be voluntary, suggesting Monday that mandated immunization is an example of government overreach.

“The state doesn’t own your children,” Paul said in an interview with CNBC’s “Closing Bell.” “Parents own the children, and it is an issue of freedom and public health.”

[…]

In a heated interview with CNBC host Kelly Evans, Paul expressed support for vaccination but bristled at the idea that it should be mandatory.

“I guess being for freedom would be really unusual,” he said sarcastically at the start of the exchange.

Paul also acknowledged hearing about cases in which healthy kids were left with “profound mental disorders” after being vaccinated.

I guess the bigger question for me is, did Sen. Paul allow his kids to be vaccinated? Kinda sounds a lot like Rick Santorum saying President Obama was being “elitist” for suggesting every child in America should get a college education. That’s while Santorum had more than one degree.

Self-righteous Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says being gay is part of a lifestyle, like drinking and swearing, CNN reports. Um, we know who won’t be the GOP presidential nominee for the 2016 elections.

During an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Huckabee said expecting Christians to accept same sex marriage is “like asking someone who is Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli.”

On the issue of being gay a lifestyle choice, Mike Huckabee said, “People can be my friends who have lifestyles that are not necessarily my lifestyle. I don’t shut people out of my circle or out of my life because they have a different point of view. I don’t drink alcohol, but gosh — a lot of my friends, maybe most of them, do. You know, I don’t use profanity, but believe me, I’ve got a lot of friends who do. Some people really like classical music and ballet and opera — it’s not my cup of tea.”

So much for the party of inclusiveness. Mike Huckabee has insulted yet another important group of voters, in additions to black, Hispanic and young voters. No word yet from RNC chief Reince Priebus on Huckabee’s comments.

Just to put this all in context, Mike Huckabee also blamed the Newtown school shooting massacre on taking God out of schools.
