Ted Cruz Throws a Temper Tantrum After Eric Holder Refuses His Special Investigator Request


After Attorney General Eric Holder refused to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Obama and the IRS, Sen. Ted Cruz released a tantrum like statement where he stomped his feet and repeatedly compared Obama and the IRS to Nixon and Watergate.

After Attorney General Holder told Cruz no, the Texas Senator released his own statement:

It is the height of hypocrisy for the Obama Administration to claim that the investigator leading the investigation into the IRS’s illegal program has no conflict of interest. The investigator is a partisan Democrat who has donated over six thousand dollars to President Obama and Democrat causes. Just as nobody would trust John Mitchell to investigate Richard Nixon, nobody should trust a partisan Obama donor to investigate the IRS’s political targeting of President Obama’s enemies. Sadly, “in the discretion of the Attorney General,” Eric Holder has chosen to reject the bipartisan tradition of the Department of Justice of putting rule of law above political allegiance.

Both Nixon Administration Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Clinton Administration Attorney General Janet Reno appointed special prosecutors whose integrity was beyond reproach; Eric Holder should do likewise. To date, nine months after a damning Inspector General report, nobody has been indicted, many of the victims have not even been interviewed, and Lois Lerner has twice pleaded the Fifth. And yet the Attorney General refuses to allow a genuine-and impartial-investigation.

The integrity of the Department of Justice deserves better. The American people deserve better.

In Ted Cruz’s mind, a scandal where there is zero evidence that President Obama was involved in any way is exactly the same as Richard Nixon and Watergate. The IRS scandal hasn’t caught on with the American people, because there is no scandal. Liberals and conservatives were both targeted by the IRS. There was no targeting of just conservatives.

None of this matters to Ted Cruz. Sen. Cruz has convinced himself that the bogus IRS scandal is on par with Watergate. Attorney General Holder was correct to deny Cruz’s request for a special prosecutor. Holder’s office concluded that there was no conflict of interest with the DOJ running the investigation. There was no conflict of interest, because the Obama administration had nothing to do with the IRS scandal.

With the repeal Obamacare movement dying by the second, Cruz is in desperate need of another vehicle to attach his outsized political ambitions to. Republicans have no credibility on these scandals, because their allegations are baseless conspiracy theories that have no evidence supporting them. Ted Cruz doesn’t need evidence. He knows that Obama is guilty of something. His temper tantrums where he throws around Nixon and Watergate keep the donations rolling in, but they make the Republican Party look even more absurd than usual.

  1. Dont understand. I recall the Pres. saying there were mistakes but not what is implied by Mr. Cruz. I cant help but wonder about the need for campaign reform though. He uses a $6000 donation as the impetus for the conspiracy. I dont think I would do much for 6000 dollars. Is he telling us something else??

  2. I find it hilarious the he got the NO. He got the letter last week and now he is upset? His reading comprehension skills must be a bit slow. He also made a ridiculous statement that “the biggest lie in america” is that republicans care more about the rich than they do the poor. According to Cruz it’s the Democrats who favor the rich. Must not have been on his meds today. If you want a laugh go to Washington Post Fact Checker. They called him out on his biggest lie theory. A great read. He got 3 pinocchios for that one. I think him and Issa are competing to see who makes the list the most often.

  3. Raphael Cruz,
    using the ‘kitchen sink’ strategy.
    He just throws out those ‘buzz words’
    knowing his low info followers are
    sitting in front of their TV’s, bouncing
    up & down & clapping wildly. Facts don’t
    matter to Raphael or his minions…..

  4. “Non-partisan” = pro-Republican

    “Integrity” = agrees with Republicans

    Standard Operating Procedure = “illegal activity”

    “Damning Inspector General Report” = didn’t actually say what I want it to say

    “Victims” = campaign contributors

    “Genuine-and-Impartial” = genuinely and impartially reaches the conclusions I want it to reach

  5. … and $6,000.00 would pale compared to any amounts the Republicans would be revealed to have used if they were individually investigated.

  6. I find it hilarious cruz would ask for a special prosecutor when all that would be found is Issa’s culpability in making up the whole scandal.

  7. If dear little Ted wants something good to investigate, maybe he should take a look at his Father’s connections to Fidel Castro.

  8. Cruz is a political pimp. He will run an unsuccessful campaign for President to increase his name recognition and then serve out the remainder of his term as Senator of Texas without running for re-election.

    At that point, it’s on to the Snookie Palin tour making millions for speaking engagements, books and the proverbial FOX contract. Then he’ll join his wife on Wall Street as a high paid lobbyist. Mark my words.

  9. Out of sheer curiosity I went to this blowhards Twitter feed. This guy is absolutely obsessed with Obama. I’m talking stalker, man crush obsessed. I went to his Facebook page. He had his little band of followers praying to him to save America. In the posts section he is getting railed on. Some really funny posts. One guy asked him what shade of mascara he uses because it makes him look like Grandpa Munster.

  10. All that huffing and all that puffing. Ted still couldn’t blow the house down.

    Go back to Dr. Seuss you little cry baby.

  11. I’d make Ted a deal: if he pays for it personally, we’ll hire an investigator.

    After all, Ted wouldn’t want to waste taxpayer’s money, would he?

    Or even better, let Ted do the job himself! That would be hilarious.

  12. Ted and Darryl just can’t seem to cook up a scandal to smear Obama. The real scandal about the IRS should be how the Tea Party and other groups whether Conservative or Liberal deserve tax exempt status. The IRS code says that the group must be non-political. AND the Tea Party has the nerve to claim that they are non-political…..

  13. You’re forgetting that most politicians, and GOP/TPs in particular, will do anything their donors pay them to do. No amount of money is too small to get their attention. The wishes of the people who elected them are of no interest to them.

  14. How about we investigate…Cruz? Hey, iI’m sure that if we investigate him long and deep enough, we’ll get something…

  15. This fool is insane. I hope Prez Obama never turns his back to Tednia or Sarah Jane, he’ll catch it from both ends. These over paid roaches just will not give up until they’re 100% sanctifed at any cost, even prison.

  16. Let’s get this REALLY clear: NO ONE WAS TARGETED. These people APPLIED for a tax exempt status, and as in ALL voluntary applications, theirs were reviewed.

    NO TARGETS because THEY APPLIED. If you don’t want to have your papers examined, do NOT submit them for examination.

    What effin’ hypocrisy.

  17. Rand Paul is stealing Canadian Cruz’s thunder. Two media whores with delusions of grandeur. Trying to out crazy each other to get a headline. Someone should break the bad news. Pssst..neither of you nutjobs will ever be president.

  18. Hasn’t anyone told Mr Cruz that those portions of a 1978 law that require the appointment of special prosecutors to investigate criminal allegations against high-ranking Federal officials in the executive branch has been repealed by an act of Congress at the request of the Reagan Administration.

    And the powers of the Attny-General to appoint a “Special Council” to investigate members of the executive office are limited to the same as an ordinary citizen.

    I am sure he does not know; and even if he did he does not care. Counting on the ignorance of the average American he has made his point.

  19. No, that’s no good. Remember Cruz is the moron who didn’t understand the point of “Green Eggs and Ham.”

  20. Not grandpa Muster so much as the character on Star Trech called “Q” perfect match and character. Cruz is “Q” come to life. “Q” is also great at throwing a tantrum, he is arrogant, self serving, thinking he is the most desire able person on the planet he is on.

  21. I agree 100% with you.

    The real IRS scandal is all these political organizations acting as community service organizations and so many of them being tax exempted when it is against the guidelines. I don’t care if it is democrat or republican, no one should be abusing the tax rules for political benefit.

    Ted Cruz has already wasted over $25 BILLION with the government shutdown; Issa has already wasted over $15 MILLION on IRS and his Bengazi witch hunt.

    When are these government and Koch Brother paid parasites going to pay back the taxpayer money they wasted. Issa should definitely be investigated and be tossed out on his butt for doing zero for the American people and 100% for the 1%. Both men are top shelf crooks and deadbeats.

  22. The GOP twerp Cruz should be arrested and imprisoned by Eric Holder for treason to people and country of the United States of America for shutting down the Government, and costing the people of our country 30 billion dollars because of his tantrum. The GOP is not needed, not wanted, not relevant.
