Ted Cruz Goes There By Accusing Obama of Being An Angry and Defiant Black Man

In an attempt to game the ref prior to President Obama’s expected immigration reform announcement Thursday (tomorrow), Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) accused, “It is lawless. It is unconstitutional. He is defiant and angry at the American people.”

The Republican shutdown king from Texas, dubbed a “wacko bird” by Republican Senator John McCain, took to the pages of Politico Magazine on Wednesday in an effort to demonize President Obama’s actions on immigration reform before he even announced them.

While Cruz is highly educated, he runs a good game playing obtuse. And thus we get passages like:

To be clear, the dispute over executive amnesty is not between President Obama and Republicans in Congress; it is a dispute between President Obama and the American People. The Democrats suffered historic losses in the midterm elections largely over the prospect of the President’s executive amnesty.

Or, in reality, the 2014 midterms favored Republicans not only in midterm electorate turnout (which, contrary to Ted Cruz’s quackings, do not represent all Americans but actually mostly older white Republicans) but also in terms of which seats were being defended. Democrats were fighting to keep seats in red states lost by the President in 2012. It was a deck stacked against them, and still Republicans had to rely on millions of dark money in red states just to stave off the more popular policies of Democrats.

But Republicans try to pass this off as a huge victory for them and a referendum on Obama and his policies. Yet exit polls showed that the policies Obama was referring to when he said his policies were on the ballot were popular even with voters who voted for the Republican. So we got the misinformed voters who want a raise in the minimum wage and thus voted Republican. Let us not dwell too long in this dark cave for fear of madness.

Cruz continues, “President Obama was correct: His policies were on the ballot across the nation in 2014. The elections were a referendum on amnesty, and the voters soundly rejected it. There was no ambiguity.”

Nope. See above. But also, the President has not even presented his plan yet, so how Ted Cruz can be so sure of what it entails is a quandary best left to wacko bird hunters.

Here’s the reality: Whatever the President announces on executive action regarding immigration reform, he will no doubt present it as a temporary change in the implementation of policy regarding the enforcement of deportation rules, something that is under his authority as the executive (as discussed during the Obamacare implementation change, the President is allowed to make changes to the implementation of laws under the purview of the executive branch). It will not be a change to immigration law as Cruz as the Republicans keep deliberately pretending it is, because laws can only be made in Congress.

Even this conservative Supreme Court agreed two years ago that the President has “broad discretion” over deportation policies. Immigration officials have broad discretion over the implementation of the policy. All of this deciding when to implement and whom to deport falls under the power of the executive branch.

Speaking of civics lessons, why hasn’t this law been made in Congress? Republicans keep saying they need more time but Obama has been waiting now 510 days for Republicans to act on immigration, as the Senate sent the House an immigration reform bill 510 days ago but Speaker John Boehner won’t even vote on it. Furthermore, if Republicans were really concerned about Obama having overreach, they could easily fix this problem by passing an actual law. Republicans have the authority to stop Obama from taking action. They have been told this day was coming for 510 days and they chose to do nothing.

Republicans will solve immigration reform problems by doing nothing but calling the President names and threatening to sue him, apparently. So that’s fun.

Cruz says Obama is undeterred by the will of the people as shown in the last election. He’s a monarch! And also, he’s “angry and defiant”. Blow that whistle. Nobody ever refers to white people as angry and defiant. Everybody knows where Cruz was going there.

Undeterred, President Obama appears to be going forward. It is lawless. It is unconstitutional. He is defiant and angry at the American people. If he acts by executive diktat, President Obama will not be acting as a president, he will be acting as a monarch.

The man who shutdown the government in a temper tantrum over the implementation of a law that was passed legally (Obamacare) is calling the President “defiant” and “angry” at the American people. Sure, Cruz doesn’t want you to have affordable healthcare, but that’s not the same as being defiant and angry at the people. Saving people from deportation is seen as anger at the people.

Also, no. It’s not lawless and it’s not unconstitutional, as former President Reagan well knew when he did it. So, Reagan was “angry and defiant” against the American people. That fizzles because the poisoning of the well re “angry and defiant” doesn’t work as well if the person isn’t black. And no one in their right mind would accuse this President of being angry. There is an ongoing joke involving an Obama anger translator precisely because this President does not get visibly “angry”. Nor has he ever behaved in a juvenile fashion (like shutting down the government right after you win election to it in an epic display of Me Firstitis) to warrant the label “defiant”.

Speaking of elections, Senator Cruz might like to be reminded that President Obama won reelection in a landslide, and more of the American electorate turned out for that election than for the midterms. So, math and reality are not impressed with the defiant and angry one’s attempt to game the ref in advance of President Obama’s immigration reform announcement.

Someone needs to get Senator Ted Cruz a mirror. Stat.

  1. The American voters don’t know what they want. They ping pong back and forth every two years! This is typical GOP BS. When they realize President Obama is no longer playing along with them, the name calling and whining begins!

  2. As an American, I am ashamed to have people such as the GOP representing our government.

    Cruz saying President Obama is an angry black man, is racist pure and simple. Our President deserves so much better.

    Other countries must think we have really lost it.

  3. Sometimes I think if Joe Wilson would had have his ass handed to him when he shouted “You lie” none of this would have came to pass.

    We have to stop thinking republicans are responsible citizens and totally wipe them off the face of any political map for good.

  4. does anyone know just how many democratic votes are in the 36% that voted? I’m sure there were some. no one talks about that, because the gop votes are even lower after those deductions.

  5. Psychopaths reveal themselves but most people don’t know how to spot a psychopath. Crowdfund.Geneticpsycho.com

  6. GOP had six years to pass a bill through Congress.

    Prez is exercising his Constitutional power is no different than Truman smashing the walls of segregation in the military.

    Truman did not seek Strom Thurmond’s advise.

  7. Cruz knew the election stat, that is why he is working round the clock to ensure that his listeners have no idea that this year midterm is historic low ever since World War Two.

  8. As much as I dislike Ted Cruz and support the president, I think it is very disingenuous of the author and/or editor (whomever was responsible) to link to/headline this story with, “Ted Cruz Goes There By Accusing Obama of Being An Angry and Defiant Black Man.”

    I clicked on that link thinking, “Oh hell, he said THAT? Wow!! His ass is COOKED!”

    The author herself mentioned race, but nowhere in the story is Cruz quoted using that string of five words. And nowhere does he say ‘black man’ at all. Ms. Jones writes that “Everybody knows where Cruz was going there” as if ‘angry’ and ‘defiant’ come with longstanding racial overtones.

    Cruz’s own words are enough to make him seem like an ass without journalistic embellishment and sensationalized headlines.

    Please be more responsible in the future.

  9. You can take it where the sun don’t shine as far as I care. If you haven’t been paying attention over the past 6 years on republicans with their racism then I cant help you but then again you probably just waiting with a Cheshire grin when they say n@gger

  10. Cruz says Obama is undeterred by the will of the people as shown in the last election. He’s a monarch! And also, he’s “angry and defiant”.
    —————————

    What part of American history concerning African Americans who speak up and how they are portrayed by racist you don’t understand about that statement? I guess we should just bow our heads and move off the sidewalks in the presence of the master race then we wouldn’t be angry and defiant

  11. White is not a race but rather a skin tone. Cubans have nearly as many “nations of origin” in their populace as the U.S.

    This being said, Cruz would probably be called “white” by most native Cubans.

  12. Ted Cruz never said anything about Obama being an angry black man; he is to well educated and serious to make such a comment.

  13. No, he never said such a thing and never would say such a thing. This is just part of the smear campaign against him.

  14. He also owes the US 24 billion dollars fpor being a fraud and lying about the shutdown he engineered. Like his father, he is a liar and a fraud who does things only to make money for his campaigns

  15. If it comes out that the police officer in Ferguson had every right to shoot Brown in self defense via the grand jury, are you willing to accept that? They have heard all the evidence. You have NOT. If you disagree with them, you are a racist. Which undoubtedly you are, as based on your posts, Ronnie WINK

  16. They have not heard all the evidence but don’t worry the way the laws are written you can ejaculate because there is no way they will indict the executioner.

  17. Ted yer stupid. You think Obama is going to hand himself over on a plate by over reaching on immigration? I think not. The freaking constitutional experts have been pouring over this for years.

  18. “Other countries must think we have really lost it. ”

    They do, and they have for quite some time now.

  19. “We have to stop thinking republicans are responsible citizens and totally wipe them off the face of any political map for good. ”

    Why stop at just the political map?

  20. “We have to stop thinking republicans are responsible citizens and totally wipe them off the face of any political map for good. ”

    Why stop at just the political map?

  21. I didn’t want anyone to say anything about I wanted to kill them or genocide. I would never do that. Not in a million years.

  22. Could any smart person go into the news archives and research the outcry when Reagan or George Bush sr did the same thing
    about immigration, it would make an interesting comparison.

  23. ME TOO, ME TOO, Democratinny. I also am ashamed of the thugs in Congress.
    Especially, ones like Cruz. He looks like he crawled out from under a very slimy rock, wish he would crawl back there. He contaminates the whole republican party. Makes them ALL, the same. To me, HE is their business It’s their business to stop him, correct him, take away any power(he thinks ) he has. Put that creep DOWN any way possible.
    Then on second thought, the thugs have so many to put down, I wonder if there would be any left?

  24. “…Speaking of civics lessons, why hasn’t this law been made in Congress?

    IMHO, every TGOP must be indicted for treason, insurrection, sedition and for their unconstitutional actions. They must be ordered to pay the money the “repeals”, “investigations” have cost the American people. I’m sure Cruz didn’t use the words “angry black man”, but rather than unprintable words!

    President Obama is a man of faith.

    Cruz is a narcissistic hypocrite.

  25. Went there panther. The line that stayed with me is: The Pres. “Is hell bent on destruction” Seems to me that shoe is on the wrong foot. Should be on the rethug feet.
    Who has done NOTHING for over six years?NOTHING but obstruct, deny, decieve? Golly gee, it is the thugs themselves.

  26. Maybe not. Where a child is born to *one* U.S. citizen living under the jurisdiction of a foreign sovereign, certain facts must exist to demonstrate that the citizen parent’s primary allegiance was to the American sovereign, and the nexus to the child sufficient, for the child’s citizenship to exist from birth. Our Constitution recognizes jus solis -birth on the soil- as the birthright citizenship to which all who fit it are equally entitled. That includes those who are born within the United States, its territories, its embassies, its military installations, and on its government vessels, planes, and trains. Jus sanguis (blood citizenship) is only as recognized by our statutes. Cruz may be an outlander.

  27. the difference between being educated and being trained is the ability to analyze and extrapolate meaning. If you have to have meaning spelled out in special, precise words, you’re demonstrating obedience training, not reading comprehension.

  28. This is NUMBER ONE republican senator I loathed and I believe he and his racist father are biggest threat to Democracy in this country!

  29. HE IS NOT LAWLESS NOR IS IT UNCONSTITUTIONAL. DID HE THINK THE SAME WHEN REAGAN AND BUSH SENIOR DID THE SAME THING? I DON’T THINK SO AS A LAWYER HE OUGHT TO KNOW BETTER.

  30. I’m from Texas, so I’m gonna go there. Texans should not say too much bad about America or an American President because they were trying to get out of the Union just last year. We here in Texas should just lie low for at least 10 years to see if, even then, we can live this down!
