Ted Cruz: "Any president who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander-in-chief of this nation."

Courtesy of AmericaBlog:  

Not only did Ted Cruz fail to repudiate Kevin “Kill the Gays in Public” Swanson and back out from the Evangelical leader’s hatefest this weekend, the self-described “religious liberty” advocate used it as an opportunity to reject the premise of religious liberty entirely. 

During a question and answer session with Swanson, Cruz answered literally the first question he was asked by declaring that atheist cannot be president. 

Said Cruz, when asked if religion was an important quality for a Commander-in-Chief, “Any president who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander-in-chief of this nation.”

Yes because nothing says that you are fit to make the incredibly complex and potentially world altering decisions of America's commander-in-chief like paying homage to an invisible sky daddy every morning before you take your first poop.

You know it seems to me that the LAST super duper religious president we had claimed that God told him to unnecessarily attack two different countries.

How did THAT work out for us?

No we desperately need a leader who would NEVER bend his knee to any god, angel, fairy, leprechaun, or unicorn. And would instead make decisions based on critical thinking and  recognition of the facts.

And personally I would not trust Ted Cruz to water my plants, much less lead this nation.

P.S. By the way that Kevin Swanson lunatic also railed against country music, Harry Potter, and even the children's cartoon "How to Train Your Dragon." 

And the fact that Ted Cruz saw nothing wrong with sharing a stage with him, suggests that he needs to spend less time on his knees and more time vetting his friends.


  1. I'm noticing that Hillary doesn't have to attack a single one of them. Every day, each of them opens their mouths and performs a little of their own respective burials. Several of them too need to be reminded they're not running against Obama.

    I saw this preacher's rant on Rachel last night and she revealed that Cruz, Huckaby and Jindal were in attendance. It was horrifying and I can't believe that I haven't read more about the event. DailyMail has noted the preacher's murderous sermon, but they did not mention that the three candidates were in attendance and I think that's important to know.

    The guy's rage was just jaw-dropping and at one point he says for folks not to feel bad about it (murder) because it's "just the body". Blood-curdling to say the very least, and the fact that three supposedly serious candidates for President of the United States sat quietly in attendance boils my blood!

    Wait, Ted Cruz thinks a president should start every day by giving a BLOW JOB???

    So, Ted Cruz -- who venerates the Founding Fathers -- would say that Washington and Jefferson were all "unfit" to be President. And Lincoln, too, for that matter. What do all three have in common? They weren't religious. Lincoln, from all indications, was an atheist, Jefferson was pretty much an atheist, and Washington doesn't seem to have been anything at all.

  5. Well, country music. I could agree with the preacher about country music.

    Cruz was born in Canada and gave up his Canadian citizenship.
    The rule say to U.S. president you have to be natural born. It doesn't say "a citizen at birth." So I don't think he is eligible merely because his father was allegedly a citizen at the time. McCain was ok cause his father was serving in th military at the time of his birth in Panama. I think it will come down to a supreme court ruling and that is why Cruz decided to give up hias Canadian citizenship to help his cause.

      Actually I believe Rafael "Ted's" mother was the American citizen in this. Daddy Rafael is Cuban.

      Yes, Carnival's father was in Cuba when Castro took over. That guy is just too slimy looking. Yuk! He looks like the reincarnation of that guy from Wisconsin that brought the "red scare" to Congress back in the 50s. What was his name? Oh, yea, Joe McCarthy. One good thing came out of that whole thing though, The Crucible by Arthur Miller.

    For Republicans that means blowing the Koch brothers every morning

    Or maybe is it only a certain flavor of on your knees in the AM he is after??

    Ted, Huckaby and Jindal are all grifters, They learned that if the pander to the Right Wing, they will make money. I don't think any of them really believe what they say. Cruz is smart, but he says dumb things on purpose. His wife left her high paying job because they know they can make more money grifting.

    1. Anonymous4:15 PM

      She took a leave of absence. She's a stand-by-her-man kind of woman while Teddy fulfills his boyhood dream of running for President. Once he gets that out of his system she goes back to her six figure high paying job.

    Cruz, according to his father, is going to be some type of divine king in the theocracy they hope to establish on these shores. Forget about separation of church and state. 12th century here we come.

    I am amazed at the depths these folks have sunken to. They are pandering to the fundamentalist bigoted primitives of the worst kind. I didn't know this country had so many of them until Obama was elected and they began oozing out of the woodwork. There here are so many dumb dumbs squatting here and there are feeling more and more empowered.

    Here is a link to a really well-written CNN op-ed by Dan Pfeiffer (one-time Obama communications director and senior advisor), giving an over-view of the GOP candidates and the 2016 election.

    He wrote: In 2012, President Barack Obama won 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206. The Republican nominee could flip Florida, Ohio and Virginia -- the three biggest swing states -- into the red column and would still lose to a Democrat 272-268

    On Cruz Pfeiffer wrote,
    His biggest weakness, in addition to being less appealing and likeable to a broad segment of the electorate than Romney (not a small thing), is that his party may hate him more than they hate the idea of another Democrat in the White House.

    Cruz pushing Republicans into the ill-fated 2013 government shutdown burned a lot of bridges with the rest of the party. It's pretty hard to get elected if your party is divided, and a lot of establishment Republican and business types could sit out 2016 if Cruz is the nominee."

    On Ben Carson he wrote, "No Democrat anywhere has spent any time worrying about Ben Carson becoming president of the United States."

    I laughed heartily at the irony of teddy cruiser stating he starts his day on his knees after listening to the unhinged, homophobic lunatic preacher screeching about sinful gays should be rounded up and killed. Yet, there's ted cruz on his knees every morning, are his lips forming an "O" whilst he's on his knees??. Don't these idiots know anything??.

  17. Anonymous2:51 PM

    Rachel Maddow ran the video of the ape-shit crazy religious freak that was yelling - kill the gays - on her show yesterday (more than once!!). He was a lunatic to watch and I'm sure those viewing him in action noticed a spike in their blood pressure! The guy was fucking nuts!

    And then, the Republican crazies (second layer!) wanting to run for POTUS were next and not one of them called out the nutty preacher on anything he said. Each one was a sorry excuse for a Republican and Christian (that they profess to be!).

    Thank god that Hillary Clinton brings sanity to the race of being POTUS in 2016! She will be assured my vote.

    This is truly beyond despicable.

    "Both of Connecticut’s senators are slamming Ted Cruz for invoking the mass murder at Sandy Hook in a pro-gun ad.

    In the ad, a narrator says, “Ted Cruz makes things happen. After Sandy Hook, Ted Cruz stopped Obama‘s push for new gun control laws.”"

    How could anyone with a pulse think it was a good idea to portray the horrified reaction to the slaughter of 6 year olds as something to fight AGAINST???

    Pastor who wants gay people executed says nobody is more persecuted than the Duggars

    Speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference over the weekend, a swaying, panting Swanson said, in a video posted by Right Wing Watch, that the “Quiverfull” movement is one of the most persecuted in the country.

    The Duggar family are perhaps the most visible and emblematic of the movement, a fundamentalist Christian belief that sees having as many children as possible as a virtue and forbids any use of contraception or family planning.

    “I’ve never seen anybody receive such persecution, at least in this country, as the Full Quiver folks,” Swanson said.



Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
