‘Reasonably well educated’ Dianne Feinstein tells CNN she felt patronized by Ted Cruz

We already know not to question Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s encyclopedic knowledge of guns, and now we know we certainly don’t want to question her knowledge of the Constitution. She’s been in Washington a long, long time, and she let her colleague, freshman Sen. Ted Cruz, know that she’s pretty darn familiar with the founding documents. In fact, she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer she felt “patronized” by Cruz bringing up the constitutionality of her assault weapon ban and needed some time to cool down before she could speak to him again.

What the Bill of Rights needs, apparently, is someone like Feinstein to set limits. Sure, her assault weapon ban would take hundreds of firearms out of the public’s hands, but she’s leaving you with her personal selection of 2,271 weapons to choose from: isn’t that enough? She must know the Bill of Rights way better than we do to have found that precise number in there. That, and the word “need.”

    Senator Dianne Feinstein: “I’m Not a Sixth Grader”

    You’re right, SenDiFi! I’ve yet to meet a 6th grader, who believes that it is “legal to hunt humans.”

    • V the K

      I think most reasonably intelligent sixth graders are smart enough to know bullets don’t “implode.”

      yea i think they actually THAT STALKING – and i’m pretty sure only ONE person needs to be stalked for it to be illegal.

        Interesting. I’ll bet there’s enough evidence for a liability suit against Liberals for causing it.

        • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

          Well, we’d need to find a liberal that would actually take responsiblity for something, anything. Seems a bit like snipe hunting to me.

  • http://twitter.com/Stimulus4U Marty Luther

    Shorter Feinstein: I’ve been in Congress for 20 years and that alone qualifies me to ignore the Constitution.

  • freeinaz

    Nope, she is not a sixth grader nor is she smarter than a fifth grader.

  • jimbo96

    She didn’t answer his question in any way, shape or form. He was asking her if she thought the First and Fourth Amendments could be limited in a manner similar to those she proposing to limit the Second Amendment with. Her non answer tells me she couldn’t answer the question without showing her hypocrisy and total contempt of the oath she swore to “protect and defend the Constitution.” Even the people in California might notice her hypocrisy this time…

    • grais

      She got busy feigning indignation so she didn’t give herself a chance to answer. She might as well have said “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
      She knew damned well not to dare answer his question. She’s a fraud who needs to find herself a real career.

      • 1CatEye

        She couldn’t answer his question. That’s why the indignation and misdirection. This woman is just as stupid as Pelousy.

      • DiannaLeeThomas

        Why do these people think they are beyond being questioned because they have been in office for years?

    • kim

      she probably couldn’t remember what the 4th was and was covering it up

    • kenai

      She was probably thinking, ‘We’ll take care of the first, the fourth and the rest of that so called bill of rights after we get rid of this cursed second amendment’.

    • DV S1EOG

      I was going to make the same point. Her “outrage” was nothing more than to back-peddle away from the actual question. She knows that her bill is a violation of the 2nd Amendment and she doesn’t want to be questioned about it.

      • BeautifulAmerica

        Nice Avatar, Anthony. Thanks for your service muchly, and for your insight.

      Yeah, I emailed her the same, though not is as polite a form as you wrote here.

  • R.C.

    Go Cruz! Di-Fi needs to shift the conversation to her being patronized because she cannot argue her proposals. Deflect. The msm will focus on this instead of our actual rights being decided by an elite few.

    • Billie Slash

      Its already happened. Leftard Andrea Mitchell thinks Cruz got pwned by Feinstein. Isn’t that rich??

  • Love of Country

    Lots and lots of hatred predictably coming from the Left against Ted Cruz.

    Seems he must be a minority with a bright future ahead of him so the Party of Racism and Bigotry ie the DNC figure he must be culled from the herd (destroyed) immediately and most certainly in the name of fairness and social justice …. unbelievable.

    • Billie Slash

      Isn’t it ironic that conservatives of color (Cruz, Rubio, West) are in the forefront, considering we’re the ‘racist’ party?? I love it when liberal stereotypes are dismantled–makes them crazy!

    Memo to DiFi:

    No, patronized is the way Barbara Boxer spoke to the General a few years ago.

    This was one Senator w/ a rather strong ability to annoy Feinstein & for that alone, I applaud him. Debate….filibusters….the Dems find it all so bothersome. I find it educational and helpful! Please more of it, not less.

    • waltzingmtilda

        I would have replied something to the effect that in the military and in the South, the terms sir and ma’am are used to indicate respect for position and age, and if she did not wish to be shown respect, I would be willing to go along with her wishes.

  • arttie

    Just put an “un” infront of reasonably.

  • RightThinking1

    “Reasonably well educated” Diane Feinstein, during the hearing, referred to ‘imploding bullets’…, which just goes to show that ‘educated’ is different than ‘well-informed’, let alone ‘wise’. There are/have been many such folk associated with the Democrats all along. Long on theory, short on practical experience or working knowledge…, Mr. Obama comes to mind.

  • nc

    I was frankly shocked when I saw this exchange, cold, not expecting it, and was cheering when I saw Sen. Cruz not even flinch. She really thought she was schooling him but he would not be intimidated. Love him!

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Feinstein retains Gloria Allred to sue Ted Cruz for his hilarious, “patronizing” slight.

    (One banana. Two banana. Three banana)

    Admit it. It’s “California Feinstein”. When you read it, it seemed reasonably possible for those 3 seconds up there.

  • JWSR49

    That hearing amazed me today. Not 1 Democrat on that committee knew anything about guns. They wouldn’t know an extractor from a recoil spring! I could’ve reached through that damn TV screen when she said , “who needs these high powered weapons used by military soldiers for civilian use?” NO military uses AR 15’s! Gee, I wish I had 1 when I served in Vietnam. Instead, they issued me a junky old M 16 with semi and full automatic select fire. I guess they’ll have to upgrade the military with these new AR 15 “weapons of war.” This senile old bag is so dumb, she makes Biden look like a genius!

    • kenai

      The fact that the libtards know so little about guns should tell you that the purpose of ‘gun control’ has nothing to do with ‘crime control’ or ‘the chillrun’ or whatever other claptrap they’re trying to sell as an excuse to disarm the American people.

  • TDWilson

    Sen Ted Cruz has argued about 9(?) cases in front of the Supreme Court and clerked for a Supreme Court Justice. I think he’s earned the right to “patronize” the “reasonably well-educated” Feinstein.

  • Sonus

    “Patronized”? Well, maybe if “patronized” means ass-whupped and butt-hurt.

  • Brian James

    Educated doesn’t mean intelligent. She went to school, she learned a lot. That is educated. The fact that she can’t apply logic, ignores contrary studies and cannot string together two coherent sentences shows she is not intelligent.

    Ted wasn’t patronizing her, neither was Cornyn. They schooled her.

  • Worship Dancer

    so feinstein is reasonably well educated? now would that be PUBLIC SCHOOL reasonably well educated? i know someone who actually graduated with straight F’s from a public school. so maybe DIFI had the same education?

  • kim

    For someone who couldn’t ‘say any more’ she sure couldn’t shut her mouth!

    What a smug piece of political trash. Ted Cruz asks her a tough question (which should be expected if you are trying to change the Bill of Rights) and she reacts like a child.

  • Calcat36

    Is that a picture of her demonstrating oral sex maneuvers she learned in all that time in the senate instead of having a real job?

    Imploding bullets? What an IDIOT. She admitted to never having a real job in her life. She tried to berate Cruz because “she has been there” longer than him! Who the hell puts ther finger in a bullet wound of a dead victim, or worse, a LIVE one?

    They cut off the most important part of that clip. Dick Turban said: “NONE of the rights in the constitution are absolute, NONE of them.” (But somehow, abortion is a right, that I still cannot find in the very same Constitution!)

    Why aren’t these leftists called “extremist” gun grabbers by the media? And why is there no reporting of the strong BI-PARTISAN resistance to this gun grabbing?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZR4D5E2WTOI4MSKK7AJS6EG3OA Everybodys All American

    I would bet the majority of Americans if they knew Feinstein would not find her very smart. The questions that Cruz asked are what all Americans are wondering about. Why the hell else are people going out in droves buying guns. It’s because this ahole does not believe in the 2nd amendment and is willing to ignore everything else in the US Constitution.

  • doc255

    Her bill exempts ex-police. Funny, because she got her political start when an ex-cop shot and killed the mayor of SF, making her mayor, and also making her an expert in guns and gun violence. Just another government official who believes she and others in government are above the citizens.

      • Dawn

        By your logic, who were the Founding Fathers to say what kind of laws the country should have? Hell, by your logic, who the hell were the settlers to rebel against England?

        Just as with the 1st Amendment and limits on pornography, the second amendment may be limited by the Federal Government if they have good reason. The good reason being: you gun-nuts don’t care what the psychological state is of the people who buy guns is, and you want access to the kind of weaponry that serves no other purpose but to massacre large groups of people.

        Again, you don’t NEED a bazooka, you just WANT one because it looks cool.

        • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

          Wow…you apparently don’t understand the philosophy the Founding Fathers had in mind when they ratified the Constitution.

          Here’s a hint for ya, toots: They didn’t write it in order to limit the rights of the people…they wrote it in order to limit the power of the government.

          And since you can’t shut up about “Bazookas”: what do YOU think the limit is upon weaponry allowed to citizens of this country? Tell us all: where is the limit on what weapons should be allowed and which shouldn’t. And why?

          [gather ’round everyone and bring your popcorn…this ought to be good!]

          • Dawn

            But it did limit the rights of the people: the women and the Blacks. Prior to the ratification of the 15th amendment in 1870 and the 19th amendment in 1920.That’s why we had to fight for amendments to have the same rights as white land-owning Christian heterosexual males. The limit on guns that can be owned by civilians has already been defined. And as for ‘why’, because at some point, just like how pedophiles don’t have the freedom to publish kiddie porn, at some point you have to draw a decency line in the sand. You conservatives sure are fond of pushing for anarchy. Constantly pushing against laws and regulations, thinking life should be a free-for-all. No sense of community, no sense of public safety, no sense of friendship or respect.

    All her talk about working below the radar on gun control sort of exploded in her face when fast and furious was unraveled.

Oops, too late.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    You know what crying to the media about how that man senator dared to disagree with you says? That you were not patronized, but upset that your ignorance and hypocrisy were publicly pointed out. Quite the appeal to emotion by Comrade Feinstein, If I didn’t know she kept weapons for herself while denying them to others, I’d be swayed. But I do know that, so all that happened is my stomach turned.

  • AlmaAlma

    Is she showing signs of Imperialism? Hmmm, there’s a cure for that.

  • Native Alantonian

    Considering a bigger picture and the real purpose for the 2nd Amendment: citizens need to be able to own arms of equal and opposite magnitude if/when its own militia turns on them …or when an organized segment of its own people, (eg resident aliens referenced in NDAA 2012) attempt a coup. “Defense” is not only regulated (or in reference) to the militia, nor is it limited to domestic violence.

  • DiannaLeeThomas

    We really need term limits. Her attitude was the same one used by Pelosi during the Obamacare swindle when she told to us “pass it and then read it”. These horrible corrupt politicians must be exposed and voted out.

  • Mapache

    You would think after twenty years in Congress she’d know better. Should take advice from Nancy Pelosi. You have to read the Constitution to know what is in it.

  • Wheredidthelawgo?

    Typical liberal emotional response to conservative fact and logic. If Sen. Feinstein is so irrationally emotional after having seen her de*ad bo*dies, perhaps she should recuse herself before sitting in judgement over the nation and the constitutional rights of the people.

‘Reasonably well educated’ Dianne Feinstein tells CNN she felt patronized by Ted Cruz

We already know not to question Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s encyclopedic knowledge of guns, and now we know we certainly don’t want to question her knowledge of the Constitution. She’s been in Washington a long, long time, and she let her colleague, freshman Sen. Ted Cruz, know that she’s pretty darn familiar with the founding documents. In fact, she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer she felt “patronized” by Cruz bringing up the constitutionality of her assault weapon ban and needed some time to cool down before she could speak to him again.

What the Bill of Rights needs, apparently, is someone like Feinstein to set limits.
