‘Shots. Fired’: Ted Cruz on why Holder won’t resign: ‘Still some amendments in Bill of Rights left unviolated’

Are we the only ones fanning ourselves after reading that tweet from Sen. Ted Cruz? Another awesome zinger, this time directed at Attorney General Eric “Snoopy” Holder.

Our readers know us so well:

Not just “BOOM,” but “DAAAAAAAAAAAAYUM!”

Important exit question:

  • ceemack

    Texas gets Ted Cruz, we get Dianne Frankenfeinstein. It ain’t fair, I tell ya.

    • Elaine

      Sympathies, really.

    • Elaine

      Sympathies, really.

    • Joe W.

      Y’all can wake up and ELECT someone like Cruz, can you not?? that’s what we Texans did.

      • nc

        Ha Ha Ha. Like we don’t try.

        • Joe W.

          Oh, I know, my friend. I was born and raised in California, and decided to leave the insanity after 62 years. Used to be an awesome place to live. After the liberals, gays, gangs, illegals and Hollyweirdos took possession, I had no option but to retire here in Texas. Smartest move I ever made. As Davy Crockett said so eloquently, “You may all go to hell…and I will go to TEXAS!!”

            Blame the gay agenda, not the gays. I am a gay right-wing woman, and I do not to be grouped in with the left-wing crazies!!

          • TexasMom2012

            Welcome to Texas! Fifth generation Texan here!

        • Elaine

          As soon as we get a federal valid VOTER ID law, we will!

    • Joe W.

      Y’all can wake up and ELECT someone like Cruz, can you not?? that’s what we Texans did.

    • IronButterfly

      John McCain read that tweet and had a stroke!

      • F. De Moraes

        And how are we supposed to notice the difference?

        • nobodyspecial1958

          If it really happened, he would sound more like Barny Frank. I know his policies are already there, I meant the actual way he talks.

      • nobodyspecial1958

        we should be so lucky

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I gotta deal with Dick Blumenthal and Chris Murphy #IBlameLindaMcMahon

    • Lady 12

      I get Maria Cantwell and Patty “VAWA” Murray. I hear you – we need Voter ID laws.

      • Nunaya Dambizness

        As well as that shameful idiot, Jim “Scumbag” McDermott. I pity you…

        • Lady 12

          He is unworthy of anyone’s notice. (And, sadly, I think he was the preferable choice compared to some others on the ballot.)

    • babs1952

      Don’t feel bad, we got scary Harry Reid!

      • nc

        Pitiful…

    • YaakovMar

      We’re still stuck with Babs Mikulski and the unresponsive Ben Cardin.

    • pabgirl

      Don’t feel bad Flor-a-DUH got Marco Rubio

      • LeishaTeach

        And the cadaver-faced Bill Nelson.

        • yobabe

          Bill is a loser…I was so upset to see that he won the 2012 race…who votes for a senator who supported the stimulus and obamacare against the majority of his constituents’ in Florida?!? I certainly didn’t…ugh!!

      • Lady 12

        As opposed to McCain, Murray, Graham and many others? He may not be Ted Cruz, but my sympathy for you is limited.

      • yobabe

        yep…I am really wary of him right now. This is what I don’t get…I am Cuban like Mr. Rubio…but I will vote is a$$ out if he begins down the road of McCain/L. Graham etc…I don’t vote for ethnicity or race, unlike the +95% of blacks who voted for Obama simply because his skin color matched theirs…disappointing and racist.

    • ruffn3k

      Imagine how those of us from WA feel, even more embarrassed after Captian Dippy McDermott’s statements regarding the IRS that it was our fault for filing in the first place, whole state is full of these moron’s, well, except for our Rep from Spokane, she’s ok.

    • stillinthe60s

      We have Senators Franken-Steen and Frau Kloblucher in Minn. Oh and Keith Ellison In the House. And we had our own low info voters in the 90’s put a “pro-wrestler” in charge of our state. The one whose suing the widow of the American Sniper. Yeah, Minn doesn’t take a back seat to anyone for electoral numb-nuttiness!

      • nc

        My goodness, it’s true. Your state is nuttier than mine!

        At least I can take some consolation in knowing I have a good (R) congressman, John Campbell.

        • stillinthe60s

          And the ppl’s of Minnesota put the Dems in control of all branches of state government in 2012 and it just passed 2 billion in new taxes to cover a 500 mil shortfall, for education. ie NEA.. And they passed law to unionize home daycare providers but promise cost won’t go up. Yeah sure. Oh and a Gay marriage law the Dems passed too which local media continues to trumpet like it’ll be the second coming. Errh….

          • nc

            Gosh, Still, at least we’ve got nice winters. You have all that AND the miserable cold too? My sincere sympathies.

      • Marjorie

        Colorado has Bennett and Udall…but they’re apparently invisible!

    • lonestarlet

      There must be a difference between what Texans and Californians are made of. Once you figure that out, maybe you can fix it. If you can’t, come on down to Texas.

    • Damien Johnson

      That’s because Texas is the boss, period.

    • Julie Hanratty-Jacobs

      sorry about your luck… :-)

      ya, sad as hell

    I *heart* my new Senator. I hope he keeps it up!

    • nc

      You can’t “keep” him in Texas. I certainly appreciate that you gave him to us (Lord knows we here in California are helpless to do that lately), but Sen Cruz belongs to ALL of us now. Right?

      • mickeyco

        Amen! I sure don’t want my IL resp either.

      • Texan357

        Y’all can borrow him, of course 😉

        • TexasMom2012

          Yep, we are generous and happy to loan some Cruz!
          He is always so on point. But it comes from years of practice including representing Texas vs the Federal government in the Supreme Court, He did so quite well!

  • Texan357

    I *heart* my new Senator. I hope he keeps it up!

  • Noindex

    I saw Ted Cruz in a commercial last night suggesting we abolish the IRS. I almost cried I was so happy.It’s about damn time we got a Republican with some balls!

    • Canadian in USA

      Finally!

    • Elaine

      Can I second that?

    • Pam

      So sad! I know how you feel though; it is sad we get so excited when someone actually stands up for our rights.

  • neoface

    As soon as I heard Holder said that there are still things he wants to do, that was the first thing came to mind, he needed to do more damage before leaving. Oblamer and Holder had a meeting with a do list. I would go even one step further, I think these two are domestic terrorist. Democraps are so blind to their party that they ignore that part, until they have to eat Oblamer’s chit. You think????

    Well, no soldiers have demanded that they sleep in my house. (Amd. III)

    • Squirrel!

      The way things are going that, too, may come to pass except it would likely be right after you are evicted or shot and the soldiers will probably be DHS, not traditional military.

      • http://wolfmoon1776.wordpress.com/ Wolf Moon

        Took the words out of my mouth.

    • Lady 12

      That’s because American soldiers have more respect for the Constitution than ANYONE in the Obama Misadministration.

  • rinodino

    Cruz for President, PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE!!!!

    • nc

      We finally agree!

      • rinodino

        yes we do, for different reasons, but we do

        • ObamaFail

          If Cruz runs and his only real opposition is Benghazi Hillary, then Cruz would win.

    • TomJB

      Would love for him to contact Trey Gowdy about a joint venture opportunity in 2016

      • Marjorie

        Gowdy has become more visible lately. I like him but not sure about his electability but since Rubio shot himself in the foot, it’s worth consideration.

    • mickeyco

      Really?

      • rinodino

        I forgot how slow you fringe folks are, so let me spell it out for ya!!!…. I especially want Cruz to run for president, and get the nomination because he will lose miserably, worse than lose, he will get destroyed, then the far right will have to SHUT UP for awhile….. so yes PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make him your nominee, and then when he fails, the fringe will be finally be put to the back of the once proud Republican party or leave and we can move on… so yes we agree on Cruz, but for different reasons. CRUZ 2016!!!!!!

        • lonestarlet

          And you have a better solution to offer than a person to lead who has good character, convictions, and a true desire for a better America? If you aren’t going to be part of the solution, just shut yer pie hole. People who think like you deserve the kind of govt we are putting up with right now. And we are not FAR RIGHT – we are the MIDDLE You are just left of anything this country has ever wanted to be. Go buy a compass and head for the northeast if you aren’t already there.

        • disqus_khiD4yhUiu

          Rinodino, you have proven what most Conservative’s already knew, Obama could behead Kittens on national TV and you folks would still swear he was Jesus.

        • ObamaFail

          You libs want Hillary, ignores the cries for help of men being attacked by terrorist, Clinton as your nominee. At least our pick is someone who isn’t afraid to stand up for American ideals. Although, seeing as you’re an Obama supporter, you hate American ideals.

    • Lady 12

      Did you get hacked?

      Whoa. That is one of the stinkiest smoking guns in a LONG time. I knew that the scandals were breaking each other open exponentially, but I didn’t think that a confirmation of hard-core racism by this administration would come this soon. Man – they have tainted our guv so badly, I’m not sure it’s cleanable by a normal change of administration. Bad scary stuff.

  • TocksNedlog

    I work here is done.

  • tcbaz

    I haven’t heard of the government quartering troops in our homes yet, so I would guess that is the one (3rd) Holder will be working on next.

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      Nope, not gonna happen. I’d wager that providing shelter for active duty U.S. Military personnel in many of our -veterans- homes would be viewed as a gathering of conspiratorial terrorists by this Administration/DOJ/DHS.

      Maybe even the worst sort, those Oath Keepers.

  • Rich

    When they ask us to quarter soldiers in our homes lets hope we at least don’t get any sexual abusers.

    • BeeKaaay

      No such thing as “sexual abusers” – we can’t be bigoted against “sexual orientations” regardless which ones they are /sarc

  • marcellucci

    DOJ investigation into Cruz’s immigration status in 3….2…..1…..

    • jenndee

      Oh DOJ knew all about Cruz when he was running, hell they probably knew all about him before he ran. That is how this Administration works, beat the true Conservatives down as soon as they stick there head out. Cruz is just a real man who won’t cave, or hasn’t yet. Unlike Rubio, Christy, Boehner, Cantor and on and on.

  • puggish

    LOVE THE CRUZ!!!!111

  • BeeKaaay

    Holder won’t resign because we have a senate full of Marxists who will let him do whatever he wants.

  • Dane Gunderson

    Holder(D) won’t resign until he gets to run #PardonGate2

  • Smart Grunt

    Well, Holder is trying to figure out how to violate the 3rd amendment without anyone finding out about it.

  • stuckinIL4now

    WretchedHive adviser Valerie Jarrett–and what the blank is she doing in the WH anyway?–says Holdover is going nowhere for quite awhile and I’d say “nowhere” is the operative word here.

    • BoltUp

      Even if he does, the administration won’t know about it until they see it on the news…

  • jenndee

    How in the world do we fill the (R) party with more men like him and Congressman Grassley. We have Christy chasing after Hollywood fame, Rubio hugging illegals, Boehner peeing his pants every time this administrations is upset with the Congress and the man who was the inspiration for Obamacare trying to win the presidency. I gain hope when I see these patriotic men, but then I look at the majority of our Republican bench and my hope withers away!

  • brando

    I’m loving Sen. Cruz more and more.

  • tops116

    John McCain and Lindsey Graham immediately block Cruz on Twitter and call him a “whacko bird.”

      john and lindsey’s day has come and gone. Term limits would have taken care of that problem Step aside and let the Ted Cruiz’s do what needs to be done now to preserve our republic Whacko bird? I think not!! He still has his soul and and a moral compass and that is their “beef”

      You are so informed and insightful, “Royal” (speaking of mundane quality); you are clearly a sophisticated, highly educated leftist–and such a grasp of the topic, as well!

      Hey–didn’t you forget to call someone “racist,” “bigoted,” or “xenophobic?” They’ll dock your pay for that at the DNC, you know…

        Edit: Sorry, Renegade, I misread your post. I thought you were calling The Royal out for an implied racist comment on Cruz.

    Holder has the goods on Obama. He won’t go. Obama dares not ask for his resignation.

      Yes, The Eagle goes Wacko when you mess with them!

    Holder refuses to leave? This means we of The Tea have work to do.
    It”s time to work on complete disclosure of both Holder and Madame Jarrett, the power behind the throne, as it were. Lift the veil and discard it. Alinsky them both, NOW!

    “Don’t mess with Texas” was the slogan chosen for a Texas anti-highway litter campaign years ago, but it sure fits as a slogan for clearing out the litter in Washington too. Thanks Senator Cruz, Texans are sooooo proud of you!!

  • lonestarlet

    Cruz & Gowdy – I hope they are the future of US govt public servants. The ones who need to leave don’t know what to make of them. They don’t understand what public service and responsibility are. Go Ted Cruz, senator of the greatest state, TEXAS!

    Maybe it’s because this is the only job he can hold down (thanks to his Obama butt kissing ability). Once he and Obama are out of office, he’ll probably end up as librarian in charge of the ‘The Constitution Does Not Matter to Us” wing of the Obama Presidential Library.

  • OLLPOH # UnBanHana!!!!!!!

    Love the Cruzin’ on to Advocating The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights! Yessssssssss!
    Do you have anyone that could help Replace a cranky- go- along- to- get- along- once- was- a- southern- swanky- prominent- dignified- lawyer- turned senator whom takes his orders from DiFi and the Maverick from Ga who had the audacity to go on NBC news last year and state…”that Susan Rice didn’t lie, but she didn’t tell the truth”…

  • OLLPOH # UnBanHana!!!!!!!

    When the heat gets sooooo hot for Holder and the pressure stays on him and only then when he can no longer defend himself and he has to start hiring outside lawyers in DC to defend him at the rate of $1000.00 and hour, he will oblige and go, but not before. He lives very cushy where he is at. No one on the outside would hire him, with maybe the exception of a Law Librarian, as to which is doubtful.

    His attitude yesterday before Senator Kirk was very cowering-like, some what apologetic with no sincerity to the obvious on looker, to which Murkoswki did a save for him…He is the Democrats chosen defender boy for their other boy Obama. Holder and Obama are one in the same. Defenders They Are Not of the Constitution, just Race Players for arrogant money and power.
    Obama’s manifesto is his Autobiographies.

  • ObamaFail

    Libs hate Ted Cruz because he upholds the Constitution. They are so brainwashed into believing the Constitution is an document that they will allow their God Obama and his cronies to trample all over it.

  • nobodyspecial1958

    I think he meant, (Holder) that after filing so many indictments, he wanted to see what it felt like to be on the other end of one. ?

  • Mark81150

    Smart, lettered, a strict Constitutionalist.. a sharp wit and he’s quick on his feet.

    No wonder that he’s the man so many of us look to.. to lead us out of this mess of Obamadamnation..

    and why the left is campaigning to destroy him.
