As Twitchy reported, Sen. Ted Cruz rocked a “Come and Take It” flag pin during his epic 21-hour Senate speech. As Cruz helped kick off the annual Texas Tribune Festival via teleconference, the flag was his backdrop.

So, did Cruz bring his own flag to the conference room?

Cruz staffer John Drogin confirms: The boss “doesn’t always do teleconferences at #TribuneFest, but when he does he brings his Come and Take It flag!”

      I thought republicans/conservatives/rightwingers/teapartiers didn’t talk that way about their politicians. Once again a comment like this proves your side wants the things you mock in Pres Obama. You mock his celebrity and rock star appeal,yet you put out Palin to match it ,EPIC FAIL.You mock him by calling him the savior,yet we have Marco Rubio the republican savior.EPIC FAIL You mock him by calling Obama Dear Leader,yet thousands of you said of Ted “He is our leader”.

      • The Penguin … and whatnot

        Substance as opposed to nothingness (like all of your comments). That’s the difference.

      • Jonny Red

        Your liberal Time magazine called Rubio our savior. NOT US. After his amnesty debacle we have soured on him greatly. The rest of your post is the most desperate reaching for a conclusion that I have ever seen. Pitiful. We mock obummer not because of his ‘rock star’ appeal, but because everything he has done in his presidency has literally derailed this country and set it on a course for destruction. Challenge me on this. I dare you.

      • NeoKong

        Hey retard.
        The only people who have ever called Marco Rubio the savior of the Republican party is Time magazine.
        Get a clue.

      • Underrated

        Wow, the commenter said that Cruz is an “interesting man” and you come unhinged. Very telling indeed.

        • The Penguin … and whatnot

          No sh*t huh? Must be because we all hate blacks or some silly sh*t.

          • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

            Well, since we all seem to like him so much, I guess he’s one of them thar “White Hispanics.”

          Not just an interesting man but in the manner of the Dos Equiis commercials making somewhat timely and humorous.

        Our side? This isn’t a game you ignorant child. Most of those who participate on this site are patriots. As are those whom we support. The difference between Mrs. Palin and odrama are staggeringly simple, one wants what’s best for the country (the whole country) and odrama wants only what’s best for odrama. The blind loyalty exhibited for this most worthless being is beyond comprehension to those of us with any hint of actual brain activity. You might want to re-think the Marco Rubio thing, he kinda screwed-up on the amnesty thing and now has to prove himself worthy of our continued support. The difference you see is that we don’t have to continually make excuses for those we support, they earn it or lose it.

        • michael s

          Rubio only wants the same kind of amnesty Ronald Reagan granted.

          • drw

            Really? That’s all you’ve got? That’s almost as effective as “but it was 72 and sunny yesterday”. Looks like your masters need to update the canned response manual.

          • TexasMom2012

            Exactly why we are not falling for the Dems promise to enforce the border. We fell for that in 1986, yall fooled us once but never again. That is why we demand border first. Enforcement first. While Obama continues to rewrite legislation arbitrarily, why should we trust him at all?

      • Rosalie

        Obama is an affirmative hoax. Cruz is for real. Therein lies the difference.

        Michael….take a good look at “our savior.” He’s going to be the next President of the United States, provided millions of illegals and dead people don’t vote in 2016.

      • GotMyLoveGlassesOn

        You’re kinda moronic… OK… you’re COMPLETELY moronic. Neo was doing a play on the Dos Equis commercials ‘the most interesting man in the world.’ BTW, everything about how you liberal turds and the lamestream media worship and follow, drooling, after Obama is mock-worthy. Obama himself is so incompetent and corrupt, mocking him is the least of what he deserves, so please, Michelle, change your tampon and seek a therapist. You just embarrassed yourself in front of a lot of people.

      • helena handbasket

        And who is it that’s mentioning Sarah Palin again? Hmmmm.

      • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

        We respect Ted Cruz for standing up for our rights. People like you walk about Obama as if he were better than Superman, Captain America, and Jesus Christ all rolled into one. THAT’S the difference.

      • ZH38

        Obama is ‘dear leader’ to you Marxist drones. You blindly follow him like he’s your messiah.

      • Adela Wagner

        Silly boy, you think “Dear Leader” and “Our Leader” mean the same thing?
        A President is supposed to be the leader of the country.
        Ted Cruz knows what this country stands for, and it’s NOT getting behind an idiot who thinks “leading from behind” is even remotely making any kind of sense.
        The only way you can try to lead people from behind is by sticking a weapon in their back.

  • The Penguin … and whatnot

    So…any question as to who to back in 2016? I think not.

    • Justin Hogan

      looks like you got a couple of troll nibbles.

      • The Penguin … and whatnot

        Yup…I’m sure one is from Michelle asS. The other just the resident coward down-vote douche. It makes me feel kinda special.

  • CasualMeyhem

    Let’s assume he did. Does that change anything?

    I didn’t think so.

    • drw

      Why don’t we presume he did? No, it doesn’t change anything but, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t intended to. Your disappointment is confusing unless… oh, right..koolaid. Mr. Cruz is a Patriot, he believes in this country and the Constitution (as written). The flag is a symbol of unity with those of us who agree with him. Is this too complex a notion for you to understand?

  • michael s

    This says it all about your leader and his losing, pointless diatribe.

    Bet he won’t have to “relax with a round of golf” to recharge his batteries every few days.

    • michael s

      All that stamina only to shoot blanks.

      • The Penguin … and whatnot

        You mean sorta like that “red line” thingy? So who’s the real unick?

        • Ty in TX ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          He ought to know Penguin. You didn’t hear it from me but a little bird in the mood to violate HIPPA guidelines let it slip that he has to get treated for friction burns from all the furious fapping he does anytime he listens to an Obama speech.

        • michael s

          Syria blinked and they’re giving up their chemical weapons. Pres Obama did it by showing strength ships in the region. Kennedy did the same during the missle crisis. But a black president can’t get the credit deserved. Also the proper spelling is eunuch not unick.

          • The Penguin … and whatnot

            Yeah…okay…again ’cause he’s black.That was ALL Putin, and the whole world knows it. And unick is the Americanized version of the word. Look it up k? Thanks for playin’ tho.

          • drw

            Syria blinked because of odramas show of strength ships? Syria and Russia are laughing their asses off at how easily they played odrama and Kerry. And you think this is a good thing? The only credit odrama deserves will be given via his mindless minions.

          • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

            “Strength ships”? No, the right world leader got credit, and he’s Russian, not Kenyan.

          • Liz

            No, I think Obama has Putin’s boot print on his a$$!!!

    Dems along with their liberal media had it all planned out…Christie (after weight loss surgery) would be the GOP presidential candidate. And then along came Ted Cruz and Mike Lee :)

    • TexasMom2012

      We got Cruz here in spite of the establishment pushing for Dewhurst. Fortunately, primary voters here pay attention. Dewhurst had pushed back against conservatives from his powerful position as head of the Senate. Lt. Governor here is a very powerful position; some believe more powerful that Governor. So when we saw our positions stifled; we looked around and found a much better choice for Texas.

  • GotMyLoveGlassesOn

    The difference between Conservatives and liberal scumbags: Conservatives want a better America [see: a better home for all Americans]. Liberals want to ‘win,’ which is why they consider everything to be ‘us’ and ‘them’ and are willing to enact a scorched earth policy over the entire nation, in order to get their way.

  • ZH38

    Love that ‘Come and Take It’ flag!! Bravo, Senator Cruz. I’m so proud of you and proud that you are my senator.

  • ZH38

    Democrats are bashing Cruz, so that must mean they hate Hispanics. Way to go, dems. Good luck in 2014 with that.
