Ted Cruz fixes Obama’s tweet for him

After:

I’m gonna go ahead and credit Amanda Carpenter because she’s a friend and former member of the Townhall/HotAir empire who is now Cruz’s communications adviser. She also seems like the type to turn this out in 10 minutes on Twitter. If not her, well done to the Cruz communications team, in general!

That was fast and much more honest…

Ha!

I also noticed that the WH didn’t have the sense to make the lettering on its sign large enough to fill up the white space and be read at a glance.

10 minute turnaround – well done Cruz staff.

blammm on December 12, 2013 at 3:35 PM

I saw “Ted Cruz” in the headline so I came here to ridicule and impugn. And you all are the stoopid.
-any HA leftist.

Really!
Seems like even markers on card stock are too high-tech for them.

good one! that’s funny. you know, i think this will become a meme as more people try to caption it…

Sachiko on December 12, 2013 at 3:57 PM

Here’s a few more (since I don’t Twit any more):

“Because everyone should go broke paying for insurance they don’t want!”

“Because we desperately need your money to fix this socialist boondoggle.”

“Because we need to pay off the $700 Million Website That Doesn’t Work”

“Because if you don’t, Michelle won’t let me sit next to any more female Prime Ministers”

“Because I don’t want to spend the next 10 months stumping and begging for sign-ups”

“Because if you don’t, I’ll just sign an executive order that everyone gets covered by single payer.”

Cruz and his team should not mock president Obama. It will not endear us with indies and disaffected Democrats. We should sail to a smooth victory in ’14 and ’16 if we do continue to adhere to our Marquess of Queensbury playbook and ignore the scorched earth tactics of the Dems. Surely our informed and sophisticated electorate will reward us at the ballot box for being the bigger people.

Kataklysmic on December 12, 2013 at 3:59 PM

Heh! Nice one, Cruz team!

GWB on December 12, 2013 at 4:03 PM

Why the hell are ads asking for donations to Wendy Davis, of all people, appearing on Hot Air?

And we all know that the team that plays dirty and gets away with it never wins the game over the team that plays nice….
Nice guys finish… – (in what place?)

dentarthurdent on December 12, 2013 at 4:14 PM

If Cruz was smart he’d get on board this Obamacare train. He is on the wrong side of history. The people have spoken. They want free stuff. And gun control. And amnesty for hard working people who just want to feed their families and are willing to do the jobs that obese lazy Americans won’t do. If Cruz wants to win he should sponsor the “Everyone will pay higher taxes except you in order to fund things that will make you feel better bill of 2014″

I would happily do it.

I dunno, but I’m busy clicking them to cost her some $$.

Sachiko on December 12, 2013 at 4:39 PM

hmmm. And the eagle in the great seal of the U.S. of A. is still upside down on the White House twitter feed. It’s been that way at least since May 16.

Ha! Obama can’t trend a hashtag without being taken over and now he can’t even write on a white piece of paper! Go Ted Cruz! #Amanda Carpenter

O/T They have the votes to pass Ryans pile of crap.

I still blame the Supreme Court.

mixplix on December 12, 2013 at 6:51 PM

Is that for real? Did the president of the United States really do that? Is he really that juvenile? He is such an embarrassment. First was that thing he did with the blonde lady in South Africa, and now this.
It seems like its been forever that the president was a mature adult.
Sham-wow salesman, indeed.

That definitely looks like AC’s work. I’ve lost touch with her since I departed Twitter.

The “original” was Photoshopped, which sort of makes it even worse.

Steve Eggleston on December 12, 2013 at 7:38 PM

The fact that people like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul remain Republican pols is the only reason that I continue to hold an even remote affinity for that corrupt, statist, disgrace of a political party.

I made a blank version of the Obama pic, if anyone wants to play: http://sweasel.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/getcoveredtemplate.jpg

You know how everyone recognized that the sign language guy was a fake? He didn’t scratch his temple with his middle finger when dear leader was speaking.

Kissmygrits on December 13, 2013 at 9:00 AM

There is another funny one, a liberal doctor in MA said “everyone is just one job away from losing their healthcare…” that is why we need Obamacare. Correction, we are just one job away from losing our JOB!

And Nancy Pelosi said, her daughter and artists like her daughter had to take jobs in restaurants and stores where they could get insurance, so they could be artists on the side. Obamacare will end this. Right, no more miniplans! no need to work there to get the health insurance, they don’t offer it anymore, and everyone is limited to 29 hours of work.

A lady I know has worked half time at TJ Max for the insurance, so her husband could be an entrepreneur, self employed. How many people like this are out there, who are self employed and had something worked out for their insurance?

And, how many people are one job away from their job dropping insurance, and their minimum wage salary…puts them into Medicaid?

Just one job away from losing your insurance.

I’m not exonerating Judge John Roberts, but the American people deserve the greater burden of blame, for this.

Were you “sleep typing” when you posted that, or is your sarcasm just that much better than mine? (sheer jealousy, if it is)

I thought my use of the phrase “our informed and sophisticated electorate” to describe the mind-numbed retards who voted Obama back in after already having endured four years of abuse was a dead giveaway. Just goes to show one is never safe without a sarc tag ;-)
