‘Cruzed’! Senator Cruz crushes Hagel; Chuck Todd, other lapdogs try to save Hagel, slam Cruz

Indeed. Senator Cruz continued his streak of awesome during his questioning of Chuck Hagel at his Secretary of Defense hearing.

Cruzed! Make it happen, people.

Yes, some didn’t like Senator Cruz’s epic drubbing. Guess who? That’s right; Media lapdogs. Or, as Ace of Spades calls them “the Left’s rescue efforts.” How dare Senator Cruz question Hagel about statements he made, or with which he agreed?

Callers and stuff don’t count. Or something!

And then Chuck Todd donned his head cheerleader outfit.

He then retweeted this:


Sigh. Twitter users rightly call out lapdog Todd.

Boom! Then MSNBC’s Chris Hayes weighs in, pom-poms at the ready.


Yes, but Obama doesn’t like him!

Those not blinded by Obama cheerleading have a much different take.

Ace of Spades then puts it all in a nutshell.

Bingo. Also summed up? Media lapdogs.

Keep exposing yourselves, media lapdogs.

    You are just having a bad day when Johnny Rino McCain charges at you in a confirmation hearing. It must have been a shock to Hegal after he all but French-kissed Kerry at his hearing.

  • Steve_J

    It sounds like F Chuck Todd would have prefered a slobbering love fest similar to what the Democrats provided for H Clinton last week.

        Irrelevant. Which pretty much sums up your presence here. Now go crawling back to your Media Matters mafia bosses and beg them for forgiveness because you’re such an imbecile.

      • TheOriginalDonald

        when you call him that…..SMILE! 😉

      • plumberskid

        You say that like it’s a bad thing……..

    I know our politicians can let us down these days, but let me be the first to say that Cruz is a damn good senator.

    • bonnieblue2A

      It would appear that Hagel has been Cruz-missled!

    • Zane Henry

      we’re loving us some Ted Cruz here in Texas! Best, most epic evisceration of an incompetent appointee EVER!

    • libertyftw

      Well, this much is true: You would definitely be the first to say that.

    Senator Cruz politely dismembered a limp, lazy, tired and confounded Hagel!

    I’ve always thought that SecDef required a rather young and virile leader. Not a sack of last month’s dry dog food trying to do a bad “Columbo”.

    The left can spin this all they want. For nothing. Hagel’s toast!

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      I’d vote for someone intelligent, honest, patriotic, and who has not been a career soldier, politician, or defence-industrial… (For SecDef there’s value in having _some_ experience in uniform, but not as a career.)

      Obviously, the list above would rule out most of Congress…

      • Jack Deth

        Hi, infinite:

        I agree that SecDef is a Cabinet position best left to selections outside the Hill.

        Col. West would be a great choice, but the Democrats and the media would eviserate him long before any hearings.

        • $24698634

          Col. West is deranged. If you looked at him as “objectively” as you’re looking at Hagel you’d realize that.

          • Jack Deth

            You sure do use “deranged” a lot.

            Does Media Matters pay you seven cents when you use it, or just the standard five cents a word?

          • TheOriginalDonald

            You keep using that word. I do not think it means what YOU think it means.

  • Okie_pastor

    The question remains Will Hagel be the next secretary of defense?

    • Canadian in USA

      Knowing the Chicago gang in office…yes. (sigh)

  • http://ConservativeMom.net/ LoriGirl

    A LOT of us on the #ChooseCruz campaign heard that Ted Cruz couldn’t get elected. So we worked harder & Cruz’s message was loud & clear. We won: Senator Ted Cruz, (R-Texas). You’re welcome.

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      And a sizable percentage of thinking people are grateful.

      Give my regards to the people of the second-largest state…


    • Vennoye

      Never had a second thought about Cruz as my pick! Spent months combatting the stuff put out by the Dewhurst campaign to everyone around me!! Has been worth any and all effort I expended!! Great Job..Senator Cruz!!

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Thank you, I did my small part from here in Florida I donated to his campaign, and was worth every penny.

    • CatHerder

      I’d have voted for him if it wasn’t for being on the other side of the state.

  • in_awe

    So Hagel was Cruz-ified?

    Boy, if C-Span nullifies the intent & meaning of your chosen words, I don’t think Chuck Todd has to worry about them. Everybody everywhere will be clamoring to get on there to get a few things off their chest. Shoot, GOP should have all their debates on C-Span and have us all call in. Then, they could shoot down slander and spin with Chuck Todd’s .”Bro, it’s just C-Span” defense. And yes, 6 more years of Ted Cruz’s daily kick to nuts of the Liberal moonbat machine is a very pleasant thought.

    Cruz 2016

    • Major DeVore

      Yes, please do. You’ll lose so bad it’ll make “47%” seem like a dream.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        I think you will be surprised after another 4 years of crippling debt, no jobs, and no Bush to blame what people will vote for.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    Cruz is finally giving me something to cheer about in the GOP. This man needs to be President.

    • $24698634

      Hasn’t done a f##king thing yet and you want him to be president? This is why we think you are deranged.

      • beebop1952

        Please regale us with all of the 0bama accomplishments prior to his taking on the Clintons? I’m not holding my breath.

        • TheOriginalDonald

          Beebop shoots HE SCORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


          (sorry for the misconception)

          • plumberskid

            What line was Obama on again? I don’t remember him getting much ice time….or was he one of those cute little girls who come out during intermission and scrape up the slush off the ice?

          • TheOriginalDonald

            THIS is dedicated to Obama


            (Enjoy your year’s supply of Rice-A-Roni, Barry)

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        He has done more positive things in office than Obama has done in 5 years, of course if Cruz only hired one person he could have accomplished this.

      • erictheredone

        Yea just like Obama.

      • plumberskid

        Says the mental midget who voted for the other mental midget who voted “present” 90% of the time.

    • BeeKaaay

      This is his 15 minutes of Conservativism. The RINOpublican party won’t let him have more.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        the RINOs are losing their grip, neither conservatives nor liberals like them. If us in the Tea Party can get our crap together and get one nominee instead of four or five to go up against the establishment candidate we might actually have a chance.

  • 1SkepticalChick

    And Ted’s on a roll!!

    As I recall weren’t you guys all up in arms about selective editing yesterday? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkFDvGo-iIg 8:50

    Kerry has said/done far worse things then Hagle yet Kerry is a hero and Hagle a zero. Just another day at the animal farm.

  • jacksonjay

    Chuckie say Cruz is goin all @meetthepress like it’s a bad thing! Does Chuckie know that MTP is on his network? Does Chuckie know that he has appeared on MTP?

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      Yeah F Chuck Todd should let his bosses know that he thinks “Meet the Press” is a curse word

  • SteveM

    So glad I voted for Sen. Ted Cruz. DC is now getting Cruz-ified!!!! Finally a man with a backbone in DC.

  • YERMOM182

    The fact that Hagel made it past fourth grade dodge ball is a fucking miracle…

    The fact that he made it to the Senate makes me wonder how the people of his district made it past dodge ball…

    The fact that he will probably STILL get the post makes me weep for our children.

    Way to stand the fuck up Senator Cruz!

  • Dick Beninya

    Beta Males to the rescuuuuuue! Chuckles and Chrissy are pathetic.

  • Jackalopes

    Once again the story becomes the manner in which the media spins–they (MSM) can always find a way to lower the bar

  • Karl H

    So glad I voted for Cruz. To all y’all outside of Texas. Please take notes this is how you take back your country. We could have sent Dewherst to the senate but one McCain is enough. I guess we should have sent a warning, this TEA ain’t for sipping.

  • BeeKaaay

    No surprise that the leftwingwacko media are supporting this Nazi.

  • Bowdoin81

    Chuck Todd should not Tweet. Just don’t do it, Chuckie.

  • notenoughtime

    Our politicians are jokes and our President would not know how to pick a qualified person for any job in the administration because he does not have the background. The media is just a cheering squad and celebrity stalkers when it comes to reporting factually all the negatives in our President and his policies. No hope; no change; no future!
