Ted Cruz Screencap

Ted Cruz RIPPED By Conservatives As “Totally Ignorant” And “The Taliban.” (VIDEO)

Published On July 31, 2013 | By james |

There were explosive fireworks on Wednesday morning’s MSNBC’s “The Morning Joe,” with host Joe Scarborough calling Sen. Ted Cruz a “total train wreck,” for comments Cruz made Tuesday about Republican Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn;

“Have you seen what Ted Cruz is doing? Ted Cruz is attacking anybody who’s not willing to shut down the government over Obamacare. He’s lambasting fellow conservatives like Tom Coburn — Tom Coburn! — and saying that he serves in the ‘surrender caucus. I need to be very careful about what I’m going to say here, Ted Cruz comes in obviously so completely ignorant about the war that Tom Coburn has been fighting for twenty years, and to say something like this about Tom Coburn — Ted Cruz, he is a total train wreck.”

Cruz (TX), a Tea Party Republican and 2016 Presidential hopeful, has ratcheted up his rhetoric in his fight to repeal the Affordable Care Act, splitting with his own party on the issue. Tuesday morning he used an appearance at the Koch-funded Heritage Foundation  to lay out his strategy to bring the federal government to a halt by voting against a continuing resolution to fund it unless the ACA was completely dismantled first. Yesterday, The Everlasting GOP Stoppers told you how he’s urging fellow Republicans to allow the government to shut down, and then blame it on President Obama.

Also on Tuesday, Sen. Cruz called Tom Coburn a member of the “surrender caucus,” saying that he and other fellow Republicans are “scared,’ to join his fight to kill Obamacare. Sen. Coburn is on record saying that defunding The Affordable Care Act is a bad idea.

Back on the set of The Morning Joe, the hosts and their guests took turns mocking Cruz, with one guest calling him “little Teddy Cruz,” and Tina Brown, editor of The Daily Beast, getting in this epic dig;

“Jon Favreau’s written a great piece in the Daily Beast about this whole trend now about not the small government conservative, but the no government conservative – that is what Cruz is a member of. This is the Taliban.”

    Political curb side appeal as a double edged sword, and the American bloggers of today,

    Never in American history have writers and writings reached so many in so little time in American politics. It is political deception of the American voters which political candidates are now having to sacrifice as candidates of today are now judged not by what he or she says, but rather by what they do, have done, or have accomplished in leadership positions all around the country.

    It is the X-leader of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich who said “it is Barack Obama who has unleashed the American voters” on national television while campaigning to be the Republican Presidential candidate. He of course was wrong. It is the revenge of Al Gorg who made the internet accessible to average American bloggers such as myself who can now publish and distribute our truth as we know it by the click of a PC mouse button any time of the day or night. Government leaders today must now stand next to their deeds and the American voters can now judge a candidates true ability to represent the political will of the people that elected them, no longer can a candidate get elected to political office by the people and get to their state capital or Washington DC and sell the will of the people who voted for them to the highest bidder with out some one like myself making the action public.

    Certainly, it dose appear from a political party perception as though the Republican Party of today has failed to grasp the reality of political evolution by way of the internet and transparency, whereas, average republican representatives of good will must now pay the price of out dated back room politics, and corporate political capitalist covenant. Tomorrow’s politics of public transparency will bring us a government of and for the voter of human kind changing American politics to reflect a government of and for the human American voter of mankind, where as politics in America must now reflect the nature of a government of and for it’s American voters of human kind, with out corporate welfare or corporate capitalism as we know government today,…

    Time to wake up, Joe, and see the republican party for what it is today – obstructionists who are hell-bent on destroying the very government that issues their paychecks. Ted Cruise is by no means an obscure minority within the current GOP. I’m still waiting for the republicans to kick these baggers to the curb and reclaim their party, but I’m certainly not going to hold my breath.

    • nochickenlady

      yes, hope we do reduce the size and scope of this government. It is far to big, expensive and corrupt.

      • Judy Finley

        Be careful what you ask for.

      • Franklin Radcliff

  • Rick Rogers

    OK so now Can we start calling him Senator Taliban Cruz… Of course I would rather call him FORMER SENATOR CRUZ

  • 12obama12

    Time for Joe to change his affiliation to “Independant”…I don’t know how he can still call himself a republican while watching that party self-destruct.

    • Liza B

      Why is it that a fiscal conservative pro-life who believes in states rights and calls himself a Republican all of a sudden and Independent because his mentality is not similar to the far right lunatics that are causing utter chaos in the GOP?

  • nochickenlady

    Joe is no conservative. This is a liberal rant.

    • Liza B

      Joe is a anti-spending, pro-life, state government person. Just because he thinks that the train wreck, who some call Joe McCarthy, Al-Queda, Terrorist (He’s just an ego-maniac laughing stock) is an idiot doesn’t mean he’s liberal. Ted Cruz and his pals and destroying this country. Let them suck up to Hannity.

  • Karen Jill Cornett

    “No government idea??” Are the Tea Party People or what ever they consider themselves really this screwed up?? They sound as if they are nearly ready to concede from the Union!! Hah!! Another Civil War? This time within the Republican Party!! They are truly loosing it!! I’ll just sit back and watch, thank you….

  • jakeinlove

    You vote in stupid and you get stupid. Why are they surprised?

  • Judy Finley

    For the life of me I don’t understand where these people are comming from. Is someone putting something in their food and water. They cant be in their right mind. I am glad to see the republicans are starting to wake up to the fact their party is being ripped apart from the inside.

    • crc3

      Ted Cruz is certifiable along with the likes of Palin and Bachmann. So extreme I consider them to be DANGEROUS…

  • Mike White

    Can you imagine what would happen if they ever shut the Affordable Health Care Law down? We’d NEVER see another Republican voted into any office! 2014 and 2016 I’d like to believe that the ground will rise, the skies will turn black, and the middle class voters will storm down on the polls and vote every one of these freaks out of office…but I’m realistic enough to know a lot of people just won’t bother turning out…and the thought of our government filling more seats with children like Cruz makes me physically nauseous!

    • crc3

      With millions now on the rolls it will never be shut down and if by chance it was i have one thing to say….REVOLUTION!!!!

  • Tim

    The Taliban is huge government…not small government or no government.
    How’s that “civility” working out for you, you pissant toad Scarborough? You cry about how conservatives are being ‘mean’ and “uncivil” to Obama but you’re okay with comparing those more conservative than you to the Taliban!

  • Donald Evans

    Great popcorn, how about you?

  • krazykingkush

    Damn. Even these bozos are making sense.

  • crc3

    Although Cruz may be the most extreme of the Baggers there are others who come a close second like Paul…Rubio…and the group of TeaGovernors like Walker…Scott…and Haley. VOTE THEM ALL OUT!!!!!!!!!!
