Oh, senator! That was beautiful. No wonder it has been retweeted nearly 3,000 times and counting.

Twitter users agreed and gasped for breath over Sen. Ted Cruz’s zinger.

Tweet of the day and worthy of a salute:

Heh.

This Twitter user offers up a depressing exit question:

Thanks bunches, lapdogs!

But on the bright side:

Amen.

Never change, senator.

      Valerie Jarrett. Congress needs to look into this woman and tie it all together, but they won’t. They are all complicit.

        Why should Congress investigate Valerie Jarett? She didn’t under report 414 thousand the way Gretchen Carlson’s former babysitter did. She wasn’t ratted out by staffers about improper financial dealings,unlike Gretchen Carlson’s former babysitter. She’s not the subject of 4 investigations unlike Gretchen carlson’s former babysitter. Shall i continue?

        • TocksNedlog

          By asking “Shall I continue?” you’re implying that someone willingly wanted you to begin in the first place. Mighty presumptuous on your part.

          • FreedomLuvr

            You are correct. I couldn’t care what they are saying. Gretchen Carlson isn’t in the White House implementing policies in this country. Typical obfuscation and changing the direction of the conversation, that the left always does. I just laugh at the sheer stupidity and ignorance the Obama administration’s fans possess in defending their leader and his people.

          • michael s

            stop trying to be decptive. this isn’t about carlson.

          • TocksNedlog

          Because she’s a danger to our country and well being, you silly dolt. And no, please don’t continue, you’ve made your baseless points as most libs do. Do libs do no wrong in your eyes and do you believe they actually give 2 shits about you?? If so, you are not as smart as you think you are, if in fact, you really believe you are smart??

          • michael s

            Points aren’t baseless.They can be proven,if i found out anyone can. Yes libs do wrong in my eyes, I never said they gave 2 s–s nor do i expect them. Valerie Jarett is alright with me.

        • Jeff McCabe

          yes. continue with your reasons for assuming this Gretchen Carlson was/is running the country. Otherwise why not respond with “Why should Congress investigate Valerie Jarett? She didnt have a “family” of homicidal lunatics murder a bunch of people in southern california during the 60’s like Charlie Manson did” See? Makes the same amount of sense.

        • jorskippy

          Like Valarie Jarrett equates to a news anchor???? Makes no sense and has nothing to do with NATIONAL SECURITY.

          • michael s

            You and Jeff McCabe know I wasn’t speaking of Gretchen Carlson. Your attempts at deception aren’t working.

    Right, just like Benghazi and gee what are the different groupies of alwhatevers doing with this new weaponry that we just gave to MusBrohood???
    There are 4500 of our troops going to be staying on in Jordan with Patriot Missles after they complete their Drills with F-16s to protect the Jordanians from Syria….hmmmm….just humanitarian monetary aid, and Jordanians militants are going to fight too…
    What could go wrong…yet Obama says he wants to stop the bloodshed, and not start another war…and he isn’t starting a war…yet how does he know >which version< of alqaida is the enemy?
    And Karzi, he's p.o.'d that ObamaGovt going to Taliban without his permission. Gee, is Karzi mad cause he won't get some extra money for appearing.

    They’re not doing background checks on the Syrian rebels, just like Obama’s DHS is not doing background checks on the DREAM-Act-by-executive-order amnesty applicants. (And just like they won’t be doing background checks on the millions of “gang of 8” amnesty applicants either — no matter what the amnesty law ultimately says).

    Unlike “dangerous” Tea Party types, the Obama administration knows it can take the word of the Syrian rebels and millions of illegal aliens. ‘Cuz foreigners would never lie to us just to get something from us they really, really want . . . right Barry?

    • Penmar

      Last I heard, US didn’t have background checks for missile sales, only gun sales.

      • michael s

        True .Bur Mr Cruz said weapons ,not gun sales. Weapons can mean missles, like the weapons Reagan didn’t provide background checks on for the Iranian enemy nationals .

        • Penmar

          And you think the only weapons the US is sending are missiles? When Reagan’s administration attempted their little contra deal it was in an effort to free 7 American hostages…Obama already has demonstrated he doesn’t much care what happens to Americans abroad…see Benghazi for a prime example. In addition, we all ready know some of the rebels are linked to Al-Qaeda, so who is he helping?

        • SJ’s Dad

          Reagan wasn’t trying to abolish 2A either!

      Really? Talk about an absurd attempt at deflection.

      Who is the President right now? Let’s see …. right ….Barrack Hussein Obama, Jr.

      He has decided to arm the Syrian rebels.

      Let’s see, we have the Syrian National Coalition, and their militia forces.

      These militias are largely comprised of members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      That is correct, the anti-Semitic, anti-Western organization, that was funded by the Nazi’s, whose goal is Islamist domination of the world, and whose spiritual leader declared war on America in October, 2010.

      But, according to the President, since they are not Al Qaeda, we can provide them with money and weapons.

      One could go on.

      Senator Cruz’s tweet was the perfect call out, mocking the obvious fallacy in the Obama administration’s decision to arm the Syrian rebels.

      • Finrod Felagund

        That’s all trolls have, absurd attempts at deflection.

        So its ok for Cruz to use snark and sarcasm,yet nobody else can countersnark and use counter sarcasm. WRONG. People have a right to be defended or a right to fight back.

      So… as long as it was allegedly done by a Republican in the past, which whom you vehemently disagree with, it’s okay to repeat that act, but anything a Republican says now is wrong. Wrong is wrong! Two wrongs don’t make a right. Then, now, it doesn’t matter. Regardless of who’s behind it. Kinda hypocritical ma’am. You are clearly only here to bait. Don’t you have some chat room “boyfriend” to talk to and pass the time? I’m sure he’d be “dazzled” by your intellect!

    • JR48

      Oh does that mean that there will also be some indictments for his administration for doing so? Are there hostages involved with this situation?

    Bazinga! When we moved to TX a couple of years ago, I didn’t know anything about the politics here, or who the players were. I called my cousin, a Texas of nearly 25 years to help me understand the “program”. She told me Cruz was one of the good guys. She, undoubtedly, was correct.

    No, he’ll use the same vetting system he used in Fast & Furious!
    None.

  • Pancake3

    Cruz’s intellect is about 99% sharper than anything Oblamo ever mustered on his best day.

    • ranchdancer

      and Cruz’s patriotism is a million times Obama’s

      • Infinite_Indeterminism

        No.

        Multiplying anything with zero – yields zero.
        Basic arithmetic.

        A better description would be Cruz’s patriotism as matter contra Obama’s anti-matter…

  • Daniel Schwartz

    Let me see if I get this straight…

    When we catch a foreign terrorist dead to rights, this Administration wants him to have Miranda rights, a public civil trial, and all the comforts of home in his cell — all the privileges of citizenship, in other words, but none of the responsibilities.

    And now Syrian rebels will (apparently) get guns from us — and they won’t be New York style seven-rounds-per-magazine semi-auto-only guns, will they?

    President Obama is making American citizenship seem more and more like a liability. Perhaps that’s the way he likes it.

    • Steven A

      Well, he did call himself a citizen of the world.

      • King Leer

        He’s a US-ian

  • neoface

    Obama’s administration policy, background check are done only if you are an American, to background check illegals or terrorist would be Un-american.

  • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

    I really like this Cruz fella.
    And Obama being called out by him is hilarious.
    And he has the guts to do it.

  • King Leer

    Shouldn’t we just give them muskets? That’s kind of win-win, eh?

    • arttie

      Can we get Piers to move there?

  • Anthony Clay

    Obama and Hilliary are the No 1 gun runners in the world:

    They have armed radical islamist regimes in Libya, Syria, Egypt etc while disarming Americans
    They have done nothing about Irans nuclear weapons while massively cutting US nuclear weapon arsenal

    They have been involved in gun runner scandal which armed Mexican Drug Cartel
    They support drone use all over the world to murder Americans and non-Americans with no due process
    They were willing to let Stevens die from arms they supplied to Libyan rebels used to get rid of Saddam
    WMD in Syria most likely came from the Stinger Missiles Hilliary supplied to Libyan rebels against wishes of CIA

    Hilliary and Obama have a history of supporting radical Islamist Regimes that have no respect for women, Jews, Christians or gays

    • RLC

  • Stephen L. Hall

  • notayuppie

  • Bill Board

    It’s o.k. for THEE (islamic extremist terrorists) to have small arms weapons but not for ME (any law abiding American citizen).
