Ted Cruz’s College Roommate Outs Him On Body Odor, Laziness, Creeping On Women



We’ve all done stupid things as teenagers and young adults. However, if you’re Ted Cruz and you’re running for president, you may need to pay off some people to keep them quiet.

Successful screen writer Craig Mazin attended Princeton and was actually roommates with good ‘ole Teddy. At their first meeting, Mazin noted Cruz was carrying a book titled Was Karl Marx a Satanist?

LOL.

Another former schoolmate, Erik Leitch noted Cruz was someone who loved to argue just for the sake of arguing.

“The only point of Ted talking to you was to convince you of the rightness of his views.”

Oh, that doesn’t end there.

Several other former classmates used the following words to describe Ted.

1. Abrasive
2. Intense
3. Strident
4. Crank
5. Arrogant

Even better? Four individuals used the word “creepy” to describe him and did so independent of each other. Apparently along with creeping on girls, Ted had bad taste in clothing as he would wear a paisley bathrobe while stalking the girls end of the dorm.

Mazin:

“I would end up fielding the [girls’] complaints: ‘Could you please keep your roomate out of our hallway?'”

Well, there went my deep affection for Very Bradley paisley purses. Thanks a lot, Cruz. You dick.

And he was lazy.

What’s worse than Ted Cruz in a paisley robe and nothing else on underneath? Ted Cruz in a paisley robe with nothing else on underneath that STINKS. Apparently, he had a hygiene issue.

Mazin isn’t just coming out to spill the bones in Cruz’s closet. In 2012, he tweeted:

That’s all fine and good. We all make stupid mistakes as young adults figuring out life. So, does Mazin believe he’s changed for the greater good?



That would be a big ‘ole nope.

I don’t believe I’ve ever heard someone be compared to mold before. Wow.

Hopefully, Cruz isn’t counting on Mazin’s vote.

“I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone. I would rather pick somebody from the phone book.”

Tune in to Mazin’s Twitter for future trips down Cruz memory lane.

    Nothing surprising here…just confirmation of what I thought…creep factor X 10 LOL

  2. Helen Damnation says:

    Maybe why most of his Senate colleagues hate him so much? (This is fun!)

  3. hellshade2 . says:

    doesn’t surprise me, cruz is slime…

  4. KarenPage says:

    LOL… that’s awesome

  5. what a creepy smile….and president of drama club. c’mon folks

    1. Raja Mitchell says:

      OMG… I HATE that “come hither” look that he gets when he smiles! He definitely goes beyond 10 on the 1-10 scale for creepiness!!!

      1. rg9rts says:

        Ooozes sliminess

    2. centgeorgiaboy says:

      are you sure he wasn’t a male cheerleader also like little Bush??

      1. colbertesque says:

        Nothing dishonorable about being a male cheerleader. Bush and Cruz have plenty of other attributes that are legitimately horrid. Why insult cheerleaders or be sexist pigs?

        1. Jim Rostreu says:

          why insult pigs?

    3. colbertesque says:

      Drama people rule. Cruz is an aberration. He sounds like a nightmare!

      1. Carolina Gonzalez says:

        Talking about nightmare, he certainly looks like Freddie Krueger

        1. Paul Seaton says:

          Jos looks? Really? You bigoted pig! How dare you criticize someone on their looks. Go take a look in the mirror!

          1. Liz says:

            Go back to bed with your sister-wife, already.

          2. Suzanne Stoneking Magisa says:

            Because Republicans never criticize the Obama’s for their looks, right? If I had a dime for every time one of you guys calls them a monkey, I would be as rich as Trump.

            1. Paul Seaton says:

              LIAR! I’m calling you Suzanne. You have heard NOBODY say Obama looks like a monkey. Unless it was one of your democrat bigots. I detest Obama, but it’s for his policies. I have never in 7 years heard an Obama hater say anything about his looks.

            2. Suzanne Stoneking Magisa says:

              Are you kidding me? They say it all the time in the comments of practically every news story about his family. Michelle actually gets the worst of the criticism. They have photoshopped pictures of them with ape faces. This is completely TRUE so don’t call me a liar. Maybe this is your first day on the internet. It would have to be if you have never heard this before! Google search it. You will see that I am right.

            3. Bladewalker56 says:

              You haven’t? Then, you’re a fucking idiot as well as a racist. Just admit it. Obama’s policies have made America a better place to live for everyone. Awww… THAT’S what pisses you off, isn’t it?

            4. Paul Seaton says:

              LoL. You are out of your mind.

            5. Bladewalker56 says:

              LOL! I’ll bet you wish you had a mind to be out of. Sad that you were born without one. Good luck managing your traumatic head wound, Jethro.

            6. Bladewalker56 says:

              Or every time we heard one of those brain-dead right-wingers call the First Lady “Mooshelle”. They don’t even bother to hide their racism anymore.

          3. Bladewalker56 says:

            The only pig here is you, Porky. Don’t you Cruz supporters ever get tired of being the biggest idiots in whichever room you walk into? I know that I would if I was half the buffoon that you and Cruzty the Clown already are.

            1. seanmom says:

              It’s very weird how liberals accuse people of being stupid even when they have achieved beyond liberals within the liberals’ own system of measurement. Cruz went to both Princeton (where Michelle went) and Harvard Law (where Obama went) and did better than either of them. He is off-the-charts brilliant. He was the “first Hispanic” everything practically everywhere he went. He clerked for a Supreme Court justice (which no Obama and no Clinton ever did). He’s also argued nine cases before the Supreme Court and won five of them. Obama can’t do that well as President of the United States. And, yet, acolytes of the liberal underachievers think it’s fair to consider their idols–and THEMSELVES–smarter than he is.

              How, exactly, does that logic work?

            2. Bladewalker56 says:

              You’re the conservative idiot who believes in an invisible sky daddy without evidence that one exists or condemning anyone to an eternity in a lake of fire that doesn’t agree with your imbecilic religious beliefs. Neither Bill, nor I are accusing you of being stupid; we’re simply describing you accurately.

              Cruz? Off the charts brilliant? You really need to increase your anti-psychotic meds; you’re starting to believe your own bullshit.

  6. LJRhodes says:

    I think many a politician, especially the more assholish ones like Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell, etc., are on “the spectrum.” They seem to lack the capacity for introspection, humility, shame and other personality traits that would make them amicable and keep their behavior reigned in through self-regulation. They seem to be oblivious to the consequences of their actions for others, because they don’t seem to grasp that anyone has feelings besides themselves (much like a sociopath). They really do strike me as having at least something akin to Asperger’s, if not Asperger’s itself.

    And, to be sure, I don’t say this to try to insult them, merely to point out the futility in trying to get them to change, because mental disorders are difficult to address, especially when the person reaches a certain age and has been allowed to go unchecked for a long time.

    1. Sean H says:

      I take offense to your comments, LJRhodes. I have Asperger’s & I DO have the capacity to see things from other people’s perspectives. I DO try to introspect, humble myself, understand shame, monitor my behaviors, be friendly & not “creepy”. So give some of us on the spectrum CREDIT for trying. PLEASE!

      1. LJRhodes says:

        Sean, I do apologize if I seemed like I’m trying to paint all people on the spectrum of autism with the same brush. But that’s not at all what I was trying to do, as evidenced by my calling it a spectrum in the first place. Like all spectra, there are degrees from one extreme to the other and everything in between. As such, there are indeed some people with Asperger’s who possess every trait I mentioned, and there are those with Asperger’s who posses none of those traits. Then, there are those who possess some and not others, or they posses them to varying degrees.

        I encourage you not to assume the worst about every commentary about your and others’ conditions and instead interpret them literally, which would have saved you from being offended, since you would have realized I used “spectrum” specifically to entail variation.

        That said, I stand by what I originally wrote.

        1. StanS says:

          I can’t wait to laugh when you people lose the election because a smelly, creepy, Asperger candidate wins the election.
          So pathetic.
          Please tell me you’ll leave America if he wins.

          1. LJRhodes says:

            He won’t win. He has even less chance than that asshat Donald Trump.

          2. Ginny Forbes says:

            NOT a snowball’s chance in hell of being President. As for getting the nomination ? Who the hell knows with the wacko GOP clown car occupants, but it really doesn’t matter, because they’re all too extreme, to far out , the only people that will vote for whoever gets the nomination are the extremists. Personally, I would love love love for Cruz to get the nomination.
            Cruz will never , ever, get near the White House. Remember this day, and remember what I said:
            N E V E R . WILL . WIN.

          3. Liz says:

            He won’t win. His dad is even creepier than he is. Americans don’t want a Genital Inspector leading their country.

          4. motherunit says:

            No point in leaving if the unthinkable happens and Cruz takes the White House. The whole world would be fucked.

          5. ahughes798 says:

            You left out sociopath.

          6. Bladewalker56 says:

            LOL! Ted Cruz will NEVER become president of the United States of America.

        2. Unsolicited advice says:

          Sure you are sorry…you’re an asshole just like the rest of the liberals in this country.

          1. LJRhodes says:

            Uh, we’re not the ones who go around cussing at people, calling them names and telling them to kill themselves (or threatening to kill them ourselves).

            1. D.J. says:

              Some history, my friend. For years my usual conversation with a liberal or progressive online and sometimes in person where I question what they are saying almost always ended up with the person cussing or calling me names. I usually would ask them to go back through the conversation carefully and look at whose posts are passionate and. name calling and whose posts are calm and have tried to be reasoned. Usually they would find that their post have the F word and douchebag word and mine would just have questions.

              Progressives for the most part have always been passionate and quick on the temper. Conservatives in general have always had the tendency to keep their mouths shut and be left alone to live there lives. Over the years, from the 80s on, single minded, passionate progressives kept shutting conservatives down by calling them names and falsely accusing them of being rapists, chauvinists, bigots, etc. etc. anytime they have legitimately questioned the latest PC trend or liberal policy. Progressives have rarely known how to have a civilized discussion or argument with anyone but themselves. Conservatives have gotten tired of it and in the last several years have started to take the strategy of “hit them back twice as hard” very seriously to reverse who gets shutdown.

              After a several years of hitting back, the trend is reversing and conservatives are becoming passionate, while liberals are defending the status quo and asking for reasoned discourse. I am very unhappy about what conservatives are becoming. Your predecessors have created the monster by cutting off conversation, triggered the ruination of the conservative party, and are now living under what conservatives use to live under. I think we are seeing the great seesaw of life. I apologize as no one should have to put up with others cussing and trying to shut conversation down, but liberals are paying for the sins of their fathers, Please go complain to them. They were, and probably still are, politically uneducated a**hats that have never grown up.

          2. Ginny Forbes says:

            I’d bet the farm you do not know the definition of “liberal”. Oh, and to the right-wing , they think anyone is an asshole who disagrees with them , or anyone who will not allow their lies to go unchallenged.

          3. Bladewalker56 says:

    2. DesertSun59 says:

      They’re not ‘on the spectrum’ so much as on ‘someone’s payroll’. Always follow the money.

    3. Political Atheist says:

      no, he’s a straight up sociopath.

    4. Paul Seaton says:

      Hey fuck your and your criticisms of people with Aspergers. The greatest advances in knowledge and technology were produced by people with Aspergers. So go slit your throat you liberal hypocrite.

      1. LJRhodes says:

        Paul, you seem to have some serious anger management issues. I strongly suggest you seek help.

      2. Charlie Sommers says:

        My but you have a way with words. What a nicely phrased statement.

  7. Opinion8 says:

    That’s an insult to those with aspbergers

    1. [email protected] says:

      …and cheerleaders….

  8. Otto Greif says:

    This Mazin guy should get psychological counseling.

    1. JasonLA says:

      Yea, if Ted Cruz was my roommate, I’d need to go to the loony bin too

      1. michael says:

        There isn’t enough counseling .
        That mold comment though. hahahaha.
        Mold …………. lol
        That’s rich I tell ya ………….. rich. loling

    2. chuchee says:

      Thats what he suggested Ted should have done while in college…Seems as an adult he still has the same issues….Now who needs the psych evaluation, hint; Ted Cruz…..

      1. Otto Greif says:

        Decades later Mazin is still obsessing over his college roommate, his motivation seems to be partly homoerotic.

        1. Tellit Likeitis says:

          Otto is projecting again…

          1. Otto Greif says:

            Your comment is homophobic.

            1. rg9rts says:

              You are projecting and it has NOTHING to do with homophobia

            2. Otto Greif says:

              Stop defending bigotry, bigot.

            3. rg9rts says:

              I defer to the expert in the field….Your Highness

            4. Liz says:

              Stop banging your mother, Con!

            5. Otto Greif says:

              You should get mental health counseling.

            6. colbertesque says:

              Actually, Mr. Greif, yours sounds homophobic. Mazin is trying to warn his country away from making a terrible mistake.

            7. Otto Greif says:

              Mazin doesn’t care about the country, he’s motivated by his unrequited gay love for Cruz.

            8. colbertesque says:

              Well, thanks for proving your homophobia so quickly.

        2. DesertSun59 says:

          Otto is unaware that Cruz is running for POTUS.

        3. Liz says:

          Otto obsessing over Mazin seems to be wholly homoerotic.

    3. Liz says:

      To deal with the memory of an @sshole roommate who smelled like an @sshole?

  9. Mark F. Walker says:

    Sorry, but he even LOOKS the part. But the best part of this article was the LYSOL ad that popped up! Co-winkydink? Hmmm…lol!

    1. rg9rts says:

      Hey Mark…get ABP and its all gone free download

  10. Nebqt says:

    I didn’t think Liberals liked bullying. I guess as long as the person disagrees with your politics it’s okay to say these kinds of things about them. But heaven help you if you merely say homosexuality is a sin.

    1. Sean H says:

      Cruz and Trump are douches! That’s what they were trying to point out. Yes, I do have a liberal outlook, and you’re WRONG….you can disagree with me if you want. I just don’t people supporting this kind of trash, judging women, minorities, homosexuals, etc. It isn’t bullying, it’s pointing out the obvious!

      1. Nebqt says:

        I’m going to reply to all three of you since you missed the point. This article isn’t about his policies and political positions. It’s about stupid, petty, “mean girl” complaints like him having BO and supposedly being a creeper. Debate is good. Trifling “you stink creeper” articles are small minded, useless, and juvenile. You all probably still eat your boogers for main meals. Congratulations on showing how intellectually debased you all are.

        1. Marla R. Stevens says:

          Those are incidental to him being so odious that his former college roommate says he has no redeeming qualities (or maybe 1%) and wouldn’t vote for him if he were the last man on earth. He is so loathsome that it informs his public policymaking and that is news.

          1. Nebqt says:

            Wow, his ex-roommate (who has political differences with him now and had them in college) says he had body odor. It’s the kind of discourse that’s going on in junior high schools all over America. But the readers on this site apparently can’t get enough of that kind of mean-spirited trash.

    2. 2ND7 says:

      Two things: 1) When someone is a public figure, they’ve opted for public opinion. That’s why you’re welcome to say whatever you want about any Kardashian you feel like. 2) Comparing the thoughts of an ex-roommate about one person is a bit different than the bigotry of “merely” dismissing a segment of the population as sinners.

    3. colbertesque says:

      Merely? Hmph. And where do you stand on laws stigmatizing gays and criminalizing their lives and insulting their families???

      Frankly, the sinners are the fundies who used the law to enforce their deity’s dictates.

  11. michael says:

    Out of all the people in this country we have to listen to the likes of Cruz and Trump? What a sorry state of affairs we are living in.

    1. Middle Molly says:

      Yep. And those guys are among the Republican front-runners. They make people like Kasich and Bush look sane.and moderate…and that’s tough!

      1. Hannah Abbott says:

        As compared to the Clinton hag?????? seriously?

        1. Moon cusser says:

          I’m looking at your pic here – you run a close second to her. “People in glass houses” and all that.

        2. Liz says:

          Your mother’s name is Clinton?

        3. Anne Mulligan says:

          “Hag?” Really? Can we stick to where they stand on issues or that all you’ve got?

          1. DarkGoldMan says:

            Okay, Hillary is a decietful, greedy corporatist with an insatiable avarice for power and privilege.

  12. igotplans2 says:

    You can tell every bit of that just by looking at the guy. He oozes, and not with charm.

  13. you_see_what_happens_larry says:

    Let us remember that actual Texans made Ted Cruz a United States Senator. One of the things that is bigger in Texas is the piles of manure in Texans’ heads.

    1. Middle Molly says:

      Quite true. None of these characters have gotten where they are by osmosis. People have to actually VOTE for them. Let’s let the people who are so brainwashed and ignorant that they vote for Cruz (and other creeps) take some of the blame for the “success” of these characters.

    2. DavidD says:

      Making general inaccurate comments based on hate doesn’t make you very credible. Only 18% of the electorate voted for Cruz. In the last election only 23.5% showed up. We live in a one party state with both parties firmly in the pocket of the oil and gas industry. Most people have given up on democracy here obviously. What would be more helpful are suggestions on how to turn this around.
      This third generation Texan is supporting Bernie Sander’s populist campaign . He is the only hope we got of reversing the despair and nihilism and getting people out to the polls.

      1. StanS says:

        And Cruz beat his opponent with the majority of the Cruz supporters staying home and not voting.
        Sanders… I REALLY pity you.
        Just stay home.

        1. Bladewalker56 says:

          Even if Sanders doesn’t win, he’ll still come out farther ahead than Cruz and the rest of the GOP’s clown car occupants.

    3. StanS says:

      That’s a good point. I see that you have done absolutely nothing worthwhile in your life so I will see if we can change the legality of suicide so you have a better option to your life than breathing air that could be used for a more intelligent life, like a lab rat.

      1. ahughes798 says:

        You seem nice.

  14. Brenda Lee says:

    I think you are all a bunch of jealous rude assholes! Get a life and grow up!

    1. Ginny Forbes says:

      Jealous ? lol . Jealous –of WHO , Cruz ? Poor conservative logic: any criticism is deemed jealousy. Take your own advice and grow up yourself .

  15. Ginny Forbes says:

    I wonder when he started greasing his hair ? It makes him look even more creepy, sleazy ; very much like Joseph McCarthy .

    1. Paul Seaton says:

      Wow. Can you say stereotype? Can you say sexist? Can you say shallow? You are such a hypocrite. All of you bashing the guy’s looks are hypocritical pigs!

      1. Charlie Sommers says:

        Oink snort! Add me to your list please Paul.

        1. Moon cusser says:

          LMAO…

      2. Ginny Forbes says:

        Paul, I don’t care what someone looks like. I only posted that to show how uncanny it is that he not only is very much like McCarthy but looks a lot like him. Greasy hair, sweaty, thin lipped, and tenacious in their lies. Both men are the John Birch , dominionists types.

        1. Paul Seaton says:

          You LIE. You immediately tied his looks to being creepy and sleazy. Well, I think you’re nasty looking, like an overused whore.

          1. Ginny Forbes says:

            Cruz IS creepy and sleazy –where’s the lie ?
            As for your comment about me ? Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I give a rats patootie what you think. Besides, I am not running for President either .

            1. Nathaniel Gainer says:

              Coming from that dude, I wouldn’t give it much weight. He isn’t exactly easy on the eyes.

          2. Ginny Forbes says:

            Saw where you said this to another poster :

            “How dare you criticize someone on their looks. Go take a look in the mirror! ”

            WTF? Take your own advice; go look in a mirror , you hypocrite !

          3. raincheck says:

            You shouldn’t compare people to your wife 😉

            1. Paul Seaton says:

              I was comparing them to your Mamma

          4. Bladewalker56 says:

            Says the guy who has to hide his big, penis-shaped head with a hat. It’s Ted idiotic smirk and his ridiculous behavior in the public eye that paint him to be a creepy, sleazy idiot. In your case, it’s the hat, poor assessment skills and lack of common sense.

            1. Paul Seaton says:

              Are you jealous much?

            2. Bladewalker56 says:

              LMMFAO! Not of you, that’s for sure. Thankfully, despite your ignorant predictions, the only way that Ted Cruz will ever see the Oval Office is on a tour of the White House. Later, dickhead.

            3. Paul Seaton says:

              Your homo erotic envy is creepy and offputting. Go away

            4. Bladewalker56 says:

              Your penis-shaped head and blatant homosexuality is as off-putting as your personal desire to be mocked. Later, half-wit.

            5. Paul Seaton says:

              We can all see that your too little too late insults are a thin veil to cover your intense longing to be dominated by me. It’s faggoty and weird. But hey let your freak flag fly homo girl.

            6. Bladewalker56 says:

              LMMFAO! And, by “we”, you actually mean you, right, Jethro? Thought so. BTW, I’m not insulting you. I’m describing you accurately. Please don’t reproduce.

              There is everything wrong with Cruz, in all areas that I don’t like, and yes, he so happens to be a religious wacko to boot. He is a total LOSER full stop. Jovan, hell is fictitious , created by man to scare people into believing their bullshit, and keeping them obedient. You’re the assclown for believing such garbage.

            4. If you’re a follower of the true Christ Jesus then surely you can tell that Ted Cruz is working against the very things that our lord stands for. Where is the concern for the poor and downtrodden? The sick, the old? Ted is working against all those people and would just as soon let them die in the streets as show any kind of compassion for those who need it most. Can you not see? None are so blind as those who will not see! He is an agent of Satan himself.

        Yeah. Just terrible. And I’m sure you have written to the zillion or writers who have dissed women politicians for their hair styles, make-up, weight, clothes, etc. ad naseum, 24/7.

        No, Pauli – it’s not hypocrisy. Just playin’ by the Rule the Boys made up.

        Funny how sicko it looks when on the dick-body, ain’t it?

        1. TravisJSays says:

          Yes, a lot of liberal writers have indeed dissed Sarah Palin and other female Republicans on their looks. If a liberal is treated that way its ‘war on women’ yadda yadda from the same crowd.

          The hypocrisy is political hypocrisy not gender hypocrisy.

          1. Ginny Forbes says:

            I’m a political junkie, been keeping up with both sides , both democrats and republicans for decades. I don’t recall ever hearing anyone ( I certainiy never did) ever diss Sarah Palin for her LOOKS . She is a very attractive woman, in the looks department, but everything else about that woman is a train wreck. Ditzy, snarky, rude, clueless, classless, and just plain ignorant .

          2. If not for her looks Palin wouldn’t have anything. She tried relying on her brain and you see where that got her. The people of Alaska trusted her and she quit the job they trusted her to do.

        Liberals are the biggest hypocrites on the planet they are not worthy to engage.

        1. To group people by one characteristic they have and judge them all the same is the height of ignorance. Remember the liberals were the ones who created this country. They dared stand against the conservative members in the colonies against the crown. If you had your way we’d still be speaking English.

        2. Bladewalker56 says:

          No, you’re thinking of hypocrites like yourself and your über-conservative Republican overlords who preach financial conservatism, but waste millions upon wasted millions on fruitless Benghazi investigations and calls for impeachment that go nowhere.

          The Republicans are the party of no ideas, no progress and no future.

      8. Miles Long says:

        Not hypocritical at all. Isn’t there scientific proof that there’s a genetic link between that indefinably creepy, perverted look and a conservative mind-set?

              WASHINGTON — Although Joseph McCarthy was one of the most demonized American politicians of the last century, new information — including half-century-old FBI recordings of Soviet embassy conversations — are showing that McCarthy was right in nearly all his accusations.

              “With Joe McCarthy it was the losers who’ve written the history which condemns him,” said Dan Flynn, director of Accuracy in Academia’s recent national conference on McCarthy, broadcast by C-SPAN.

              Using new information obtained from studies of old Soviet files in Moscow and now the famous Venona Intercepts — FBI recordings of Soviet embassy communications between 1944-48 — the record is showing that McCarthy was essentially right. He had many weaknesses, but almost every case he charged has now been proven correct. Whether it was stealing atomic secrets or influencing U.S. foreign policy, communist victories in the 1940s were fed by an incredibly vast spy and influence network.

              The conference, a gathering of old McCarthyites and younger scholars, commemorated the senator’s first speech, in Wheeling, W. Va., 50 years ago, when he first held up a list of names of employees of the State Department whom, he said, were major security risks. McCarthy questioned how, in six short years after America’s winning of World War II, the communist world was triumphant and had expanded to include 800 million people.

              Of the lists, a key one consisted of 108 names from a House Appropriations Committee report, of persons declared as “security risks” in the State Department — the Lee List. The House committee chairman had complained that State wasn’t bothering to do anything about the suspects. Details of the list and its accusations were presented at the conference.

              Speakers detailed many of the cover-ups used to smear McCarthy. Veteran journalist and teacher Stan Evans, director of National Journalism Center, told of the Tydings Committee, which had investigated McCarthy’s charges of communists in government. Its report had exonerated everybody. Among the accused it stated categorically that there was no evidence against Owen Lattimore, a man McCarthy said was a major figure in the communist conspiracy. Lattimore had been Roosevelt’s key advisor on China policy. Yet Evans showed evidence from 5,000 pages of FBI files on him — files released only a few years ago to the public, although the White House had access to them.

              However, evidence before the committee showed that Lattimore had supported Soviet policy at every turn, even declaring that the Stalin purge trials in Russia, “sound like democracy to me.” With then-Vice President Henry Wallace in Russia, Lattimore compared concentration camps to the Tennessee Valley Authority, and later urged Washington to abandon China to communism and to withdraw from Japan and Korea. FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, who had fed information to McCarthy, broke with him afterwards, fearing McCarthy would prejudice FBI sources of information for its criminal prosecutions.

              Although most of McCarthy’s cases involved actual spies and “security risks,” the really important issue was that of communist influence over American foreign policy, argued Evans. Harry Hopkins, Roosevelt’s closest advisor who lived in the White House, had regular contacts with Soviet intelligence. He helped bring about the disastrous Yalta and Pottsdam agreements. The Morganthau Plan, to prevent German reconstruction and starve the Germans to make them desperate enough to go communist, was the product of Laughlin Currie and Harry Dexter White at the Treasury Department. The abandonment of Chiang Kai-shek by denying military support was the product of “China Hands” led by John Stewart Service, John Patton Davies, and Lattimore. Evans described other major spy networks — in England, the Burgess Maclean group which infiltrated Washington as well as London.

              Reed Irvine, chairman of Accuracy in Media, told how he himself had been a leftist in his early career. He had been against McCarthy, but McCarthy’s speeches had made him think and start to read “evidence that I had avoided.” He described how all during his military career as a Marine officer and later in Japan with the U.S. occupation he had never hidden his leftist views and later had even been offered a job at the CIA. Irvine argued that real communists were only in the hundreds, but that thousands of leftists, such as he, all feared McCarthy and had wanted him discredited.

              Pulling all the latest evidence together was luncheon speaker Professor Arthur Herman. His new book, “Joseph McCarthy: Reexamining the Life and Legacy of America’s Most Hated Senator,” and featured in the Sunday New York Times Magazine, shows the vindication of most of McCarthy’s charges. Herman, who is also coordinator of the Smithsonian’s Western Heritage Program, said that the accuracy of McCarthy’s charges “was no longer a matter of debate,” that they are “now accepted as fact.”

            “The DANGER OF CHARLIE CHAPLIN!!!!!” [Ominous chord]

            The people on that list who did work for the Government were accused by McCarthy and not convicted of aything. Got himself lots of publicity, though. Before being publicly disgraced, exposed as a charlatan, and dying in shame.

              Nice cut & paste job. What right-wing trash-talk site did you find that on? Alex Jones? Source, please.

            6. DarkGoldMan says:

              The declassified Venona decrypts have revealed to the public the full extent and depth of Soviet spying in America and proved that fears of Russian espionage networks at work in the highest reaches of the government were not fantasy but sober fact. Meanwhile, independent sources from iron curtain Hungary have confirmed Alger Hiss’s role as a Soviet spy, just as Russian sources (including his former KGB case officer) have finally definitively established that Julius Rosenberg was a central figure in the Soviet spy network (although the importance of the material he provided on the atomic bomb, and the degree of his wife Ethel’s involvement, is still under debate). Even the truth about Owen Lattimore, the most famous of McCarthy’s “victims,” has finally come out, thanks to a former Chinese espionage agent’s memoirs and declassified FBI files, which go a long way to vindicate McCarthy’s original charges. In retrospect, the cause McCarthy made his own — anticommunism — has proved to be more valid and durable than the basic assumptions of his anti-anti-Communist critics.

            7. Bladewalker56 says:

              So… essentially what you’re saying is that you’ve got NO valid, reliable source for your cut & paste job, eh? That’s what I thought.

            10. DarkGoldMan says:

              “To be sure, intercepts of secret Soviet communications that were part of the VENONA program eventually revealed that Soviet espionage operatives in the government numbered in the hundreds—far more than was thought in the 1950s. In that sense, McCarthy was right, but so were dozens of other anti-Communists of the time like FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

              If, as you claim, we liberals loved lies, it stands to reason that we’d immediately agree with your idiotic opinions, ass.

            21. seanmom says:

              Holy God in Heaven, you are stupid. Not everything is on the Internet, you moron. We are talking about actual documents. From the Soviet Union.

Just because you don’t keep up with what’s going on in the real world does not obligate real academic institutions, law enforcement agencies, spy networks, or intelligence analysts to spoon-feed you information. Do you damn homework or shut the hell up.

            22. TravisJSays says:

              The problem is some liberals read half a page of blather in a liberal-written high school textbook about ‘the McCarthy era’ and how he was controversial and they think that’s all there is to know.

              What we REALLY now know:

              1. Soviet spying in the FDR and Truman administrations was real, was extensive and it in fact influenced US foreign policy for the worse, especially in the critical time period of WWII and early cold war. It’s a BIG story that is not told in standard textbooks, but we didn’t know the whole story until 1990s KGB files revealed the extensive soviet
              spying in the US in that era.
              2. FDR was so naive he was practically a dupe of Stalin and his spies at upper levels of the FDR administration. It made the USSR a superpower and led to cold war conflicts.
              3. The venona cables confirmed the jist of what McCarthy was saying, but they were not released for decades after.
              4. McCarthy had NOTHING at all to do with hollywood blacklist or other anti-communist activities of the era. His concern was communist spies in the US government subverting US foreign policy. Consider if we had Al Qaeda or ISIS sympathizers in the state dept today – would that be appropriate?

            23. Bladewalker56 says:

              The problem is that most conservatives have trouble with reading comprehension.They read the parts of any article or textbook (or website) that agree with them and completely ignore the rest. Then, they act like their skewed opinion is all that anyone should ever need to know. At least you guys are consistent in that.

            24. TravisJSays says:

              Leftists like you are close-minded and arrogant and engage in projection. You were given new information to get more informed, but you choose not to get informed, rather you attack the posters. You were told by multiple posters of the facts and information that you denied.

              The truth is out there. Soviet spying in the FDR and Truman administrations was real, was extensive and influenced US foreign policy for the worse.

            25. Bladewalker56 says:

              TravisJ, the fact is that NO ONE on McCarthy’s list was ever convicted of being either a Communist or a spy. Rightists like you are why the average American reads at less than an eighth-grade level. The truth IS out there, but people like you will never find it because you’d rather not find it. It doesn’t fit in with your idiotic narrative. You can go back to watching Spongebob Squarepants now.

            26. Bladewalker56 says:

              Thankfully, I’m not as stupid as you. NONE of the names on McCarthy’s list were convicted. ZERO, ZIP. Go fuck yourself with a cactus, moron.

            29. seanmom says:

              You don’t seem to understand. The evidence is IN THE RECORDS of the SOVIET UNION, which were revealed after it fell. According to the records of the Communists, the people accused of being Communist agents in America ACTUALLY WERE Communist agents in America–their own agents, whom THEY knew to be Communists. There is no more argument about this. It has been proven. Beyond doubt. By evidence. Obtained from the Soviet Agents who trafficked with the American celebrities, journalists, academics, and government employees accused of being Communist agents who–as it turns out–ACTUALLY WERE COMMUNIST AGENTS.

              Communist agents in America ACTUALLY WERE Communist agents in
              America–their own agents, whom THEY knew to be Communists. There is no
              more argument about this. It has been proven.”

              They are denialists.

              They are not interested in the reality that soviet spying was real and extensive in WWII and early Cold War period. They are not interested in any suggestion that Sen McCarthy might actually have had some correct point in his effort to expose lax security and communist infiltration.

              They have decided who the ‘bad’ men are, and its not Stalin (killer of millions), nor is it the traitors who fed information to the soviets such as atomic secrets (Rosenbergs) or high level State dept info (Hiss), or helped influence US policy to be favorable to Stalin.
              Nope, they aren’t the villians, the guy warning America about a national security risk is the bad guy. Because … well, it made liberals look bad.

              You don’t seem to understand. NONE of the people on McCarthy’s list were convicted.

            34. seanmom says:

              McCarthy didn’t have to prove it. History has proven it. The records of the Soviet Union have proven it. You could be excused for not believing McCarthy THEN. If you don’t believe him NOW, you’re just a moron.

            35. Bladewalker56 says:

              Actually, McCarthy DID have to prove it and he failed as miserably as you’re failing now. If you still believe that ANY of the names on McCarthy’s list were convicted, you’re the supreme moron. Funny how conservatives are willing to side with the Communists when it agrees with their bullshit rhetoric. Their bizarre fascination with Putin immediately comes to mind.

        c’mon jimmy, Name ONE ! You don’t know anything about that whole McCarthy witch hunt time when the boogeyman was the ‘commies’ , like today it is the “mooslims”. Many many people were blacklisted , falsely accused, and all you need to do is do some research, buddy. I have friends who are in the movie business, yes, still alive, who had a lot of stories about all the false accusations that were flying around. Critics “were never interested in the truth”?? You know what ‘i r o n y ” means ? Come back here and name ONE of those ‘scores’ who were exposed, and demonstrate you even know what the hell you’re talking about —then we can talk about “truth” . mm’k?

            Charlie Chaplin has been accused widely in USA for being a Socialist /

            claimed to be a “Peace Monger.”

            As for the others, who cares? I don’t have a problem with someone claiming to be a communist or socialist. Doesn’t make me lose sleep. In fact, the idiot Republican candidates are more likely to cause loss of sleep.

            1. seanmom says:

              This is because you don’t know what was going on during the Cold War. It wasn’t a joke. It was a war. A lot of people died. You don’t know what Communism is or what it did. For you, it’s just a viewpoint. For others, it was a monster that denied human freedom to millions of people around the globe. The sad part is, people whose histories you viciously deny risked their lives so you could live in freedom, totally ignorant of the bullet you dodged.

            Yes they were hauled in to testify. But they WEREN’T communists. They simply didn’t agree with McCarthy’s fascism and spoke out about it. Not a bad thing to speak out about considering we had just defeated Hitler. In addition, the House Committee on Unamerican Activities was disbanded in shame and for being rightfully called out as a witch hunt with no basis in fact of any wrongdoing on the part of those accused. McCarthy ruined many lives, all in the interest of political expediency and staying in the headlines. And his number one henchman? Richard Millhouse Nixon. singly they were pompous wanabees with an irrational fear of communism. Together, they were the biggest pair of asswipes this country has produced to date. Oh, wait… TRUMP!

            1. DarkGoldMan says:

              WASHINGTON — Although Joseph McCarthy was one of the most demonized American politicians of the last century, new information — including half-century-old FBI recordings of Soviet embassy conversations — are showing that McCarthy was right in nearly all his accusations.

              “With Joe McCarthy it was the losers who’ve written the history which condemns him,” said Dan Flynn, director of Accuracy in Academia’s recent national conference on McCarthy, broadcast by C-SPAN.

              Using new information obtained from studies of old Soviet files in Moscow and now the famous Venona Intercepts — FBI recordings of Soviet embassy communications between 1944-48 — the record is showing that McCarthy was essentially right. He had many weaknesses, but almost every case he charged has now been proven correct. Whether it was stealing atomic secrets or influencing U.S. foreign policy, communist victories in the 1940s were fed by an incredibly vast spy and influence network.

              The conference, a gathering of old McCarthyites and younger scholars, commemorated the senator’s first speech, in Wheeling, W. Va., 50 years ago, when he first held up a list of names of employees of the State Department whom, he said, were major security risks. McCarthy questioned how, in six short years after America’s winning of World War II, the communist world was triumphant and had expanded to include 800 million people.

              Of the lists, a key one consisted of 108 names from a House Appropriations Committee report, of persons declared as “security risks” in the State Department — the Lee List. The House committee chairman had complained that State wasn’t bothering to do anything about the suspects. Details of the list and its accusations were presented at the conference.

              Speakers detailed many of the cover-ups used to smear McCarthy. Veteran journalist and teacher Stan Evans, director of National Journalism Center, told of the Tydings Committee, which had investigated McCarthy’s charges of communists in government. Its report had exonerated everybody. Among the accused it stated categorically that there was no evidence against Owen Lattimore, a man McCarthy said was a major figure in the communist conspiracy. Lattimore had been Roosevelt’s key advisor on China policy. Yet Evans showed evidence from 5,000 pages of FBI files on him — files released only a few years ago to the public, although the White House had access to them.

              However, evidence before the committee showed that Lattimore had supported Soviet policy at every turn, even declaring that the Stalin purge trials in Russia, “sound like democracy to me.” With then-Vice President Henry Wallace in Russia, Lattimore compared concentration camps to the Tennessee Valley Authority, and later urged Washington to abandon China to communism and to withdraw from Japan and Korea. FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, who had fed information to McCarthy, broke with him afterwards, fearing McCarthy would prejudice FBI sources of information for its criminal prosecutions.

              Although most of McCarthy’s cases involved actual spies and “security risks,” the really important issue was that of communist influence over American foreign policy, argued Evans. Harry Hopkins, Roosevelt’s closest advisor who lived in the White House, had regular contacts with Soviet intelligence. He helped bring about the disastrous Yalta and Pottsdam agreements. The Morganthau Plan, to prevent German reconstruction and starve the Germans to make them desperate enough to go communist, was the product of Laughlin Currie and Harry Dexter White at the Treasury Department. The abandonment of Chiang Kai-shek by denying military support was the product of “China Hands” led by John Stewart Service, John Patton Davies, and Lattimore. Evans described other major spy networks — in England, the Burgess Maclean group which infiltrated Washington as well as London.

              Reed Irvine, chairman of Accuracy in Media, told how he himself had been a leftist in his early career. He had been against McCarthy, but McCarthy’s speeches had made him think and start to read “evidence that I had avoided.” He described how all during his military career as a Marine officer and later in Japan with the U.S. occupation he had never hidden his leftist views and later had even been offered a job at the CIA. Irvine argued that real communists were only in the hundreds, but that thousands of leftists, such as he, all feared McCarthy and had wanted him discredited.

              Pulling all the latest evidence together was luncheon speaker Professor Arthur Herman. His new book, “Joseph McCarthy: Reexamining the Life and Legacy of America’s Most Hated Senator,” and featured in the Sunday New York Times Magazine, shows the vindication of most of McCarthy’s charges. Herman, who is also coordinator of the Smithsonian’s Western Heritage Program, said that the accuracy of McCarthy’s charges “was no longer a matter of debate,” that they are “now accepted as fact.”

              3x – directed to three different people, none of whom was you.

            4. jazzorama says:

              Bullshit. The Hollywood 10 and others hauled into Senate Hearings by McCarthy and threatened with blacklisting if they didn’t “name names” was fascism at its finest. Freedom of Speech includes the right to belong to any organization or political group. KKK ring a bell? These people had not broken any laws, but were being persecuted and denied their constitutional right to freely assemble and to belong to any party of their choosing.

              I notice you refer to FBI files as “proof”. Hmmmm. Let’s see, who was
              the director of the FBI at the close of WWII? Oh yeah! J Edgar, the dirtiest blackmailer ever to hold public office. That these two would collude needs no conspiracy theories. They both felt they were on a mission to “save” the USA but had no qualms about violating those parts of the constitution and any civil law that made their mission difficult. It is not unlike what we see today with the so-called “Patriot” Act and the continual push from the ultra-right neo-Christian radicals who think their hate-filled dogma trumps the Constitution.

              Was the Soviet Union trying to infiltrate the US Government? Of course they were! It’s exactly what we were trying to do to them. There is no doubt the cold war was fraught with spying and skullduggery on both sides as the USA and the USSR tried to overturn each other. I should know. I lived through it.
              But does ANY threat, be it real or imagined, give leave to our representatives to abandon the very principles upon which this country was founded and the very expression of those principles within the Bill of Rights to fight that threat? To abandon the rights of a free people to maintain your freedom? WTF, man. That’s a piece of pretzel logic that has been sold before. It was called the Third Reich.
              Becoming “them” to rid ourselves of “them” is a bad bargain; a bargain politicians will try to sell you when they want to own you
              lock, stock and barrel.

              As for the book you rely upon, I’ve now read over ten reviews of it in major newspapers and magazines and all come to the same conclusion as this last I read from the New York Review of Books:

              “Herman’s book is, in short, the most brazen example I know of a growing conservative historiography that seems to proceed from the belief that for too long parti pris liberals have shaped our understanding of the recent past, so it is up to partisans of
              the right to redress the imbalance and even the score—not by offering new evidence or careful analysis but by exposing the pretensions and hypocrisies of “the other side.”

              Sell your revisionist history elsewhere. I’m not buying.

            5. DarkGoldMan says:

              Yeh, the gubmint’s despotic ways were wrong, but when they get despotic against people you disagree with, you secretly(and sometimes overtly) cheer them on.

            6. jazzorama says:

              You do realize McCarthy was elected to the U.S, Senate and as such was a PART of that era’s “gubmint”. despotic or otherwise? Are you saying you overtly cheer McCarthy because you disagree with him? Or that you overtly cheer McCarthy because even though you disagree with him, you disagree more with what eventually happened to him (vilification, etc.)? Sorry, not quite following your statement here.

            7. DarkGoldMan says:

              I’m saying that I doubt that you were bothered by what Lois Lerner was doing.

            8. jazzorama says:

              WTF? You’re really out there, aren’t you? Completely unrelated to McCarthy and this sub-thread. I can only surmise you’re not sincere in your posts; rather just trolling for any argument you can find. Personally, I have far better uses for my time.

            9. DarkGoldMan says:

              “Threatened by a fascist government entity” was the subject, I just brought up another example, one it seems you want to avoid debating, confirming my suspicion that
              this administration can be fascist and it doesn’t bother you.

            10. jazzorama says:

              I stated “sub-thread” And this sub-thread is about McCarthy. I was responding to Hannah Abbott specifically about McCarthy when you jumped in to my conversation with her. I have no time to discuss everything under the sun with you. BTW. You know nothing about me or how I feel about this current administration. Good try though. And now, truly, I have to say goodbye; I still work for a living. Meanwhile, I have many friends and acquaintances far more knowledgeable and less brain-washed than you with whom to discuss history and/or present day politics. Good luck with your revisionist trolling. I’m sure you’ll pull some poor fish in and it will make your day.

            11. DarkGoldMan says:

              Your reluctance to admit that the current administration also
              commits “fascist” acts tells me all I need to know about you.

      1. clave says:

        I think he looks rather feminine now.

      2. look to the picture I posted of Cruz above. it does have some of those particular features you speak of. I have another one somewhere in the picture files not files yet, over 3,000 more to go. and that other picture really brings out the feminine side of Rafaelia, so much so it makes his wife envious.

          Hey clearly you aren’t smart enough to know this, but they have these things called stock images. You see that’s not actually me that’s a grey featureless profile. I can see how that would confuse you and all. But when you say I “look… like an idiot” you really just insult yourself by revealing how incompetent you are.

          1. Bladewalker56 says:

            Thanks for proving my point, Jethro. Actually, the comment about your looks is just an assumption based upon your earlier, monumentally-illiterate comment. Please don’t reproduce. We already have too many functionally-illiterate, right-wing morons clogging the internet.

            1. djmc993150 says:

              You may want to look up the definition of “illiterate” before typing a response to someone :) you liberals just amuse me so much lol

            2. Bladewalker56 says:

              I did look the word up and it said, “See djmc993150”. Don’t you ever get tired of being the biggest moron in whichever room you walk into? I know that I would if I were ever to suffer the type of traumatic head wound that gave you an IQ in the lower-single-digit range.

            3. djmc993150 says:

              Wow, that’s a pretty specialized “dictionary” you have there. It almost sounds like its written in crayon by you. That’s very special of you to be able to make your own “dictionary”, great job little one:) You get a pat on the head.

            4. Bladewalker56 says:

              Better to write legibly and intelligently in crayon than to crudely scratch poorly-spelled words into the pavement with a pointy rock as you’ve done.

              Have fun at recess. Be sure and pay extra attention during the reading and spelling part of class. Your teacher may give you a cookie.
              By the way, it’s amusing to see how quickly you liberals reveal yourselves. So much for not using “retard” as an insult. I guess that’s just a rule you use for Republicans. But that would be all rules, right? As you people believe you are above them. The liberal “pigs” are just “more equal” than the rest of us, right?

            6. Bladewalker56 says:

              No, we’re not more equal than the rest of America, but we’re a thousand times better than poorly-educated right-wingers like you. If The Center for Giving Enthusiastic Handjobs had a face on their poster, it would be yours, Goatse-boy. It’s amazing how quickly you right-wing idiots out yourselves by trying to blame your perverse habits on anyone and everyone but yourselves. If your mother had been human, she might have at least given you a few tips on how to make people come instead of go. Good luck managing your traumatic head wound, loser.

            7. djmc993150 says:

              You represent your more equal ideology well. You have entertained me.

            8. Bladewalker56 says:

              Don’t feel too bad because you’re an idiot who is easily-entertained; You have hundreds of other reasons to feel bad about yourself.

            9. seanmom says:

              I always find it amusing how quickly and how often the “tolerant” liberals start making gay slurs when they run out of actual arguments. Supposedy, there’s nothing wrong with being gay, but they have no higher insult that to accuse an opponent of engaging in various forms of gay sex, or of being a wiling sexual submissive–which their politics tell them they should actually be supportive of. Weird ideology, liberalism. Kind of psychologically perverse.

            10. Bladewalker56 says:

              I don’t care if he’s gay. And, even if I did, it wouldn’t change the fact that you’re clueless.

            11. djmc993150 says:

              By the way, thanks for revealing yourself as a racist. It’s good to see you people out yourselves.

            12. Bladewalker56 says:

              You may want to look up the definition of racist, because it’s obvious that you have no bloody idea what you’re babbling about. Of course, that’s typical of you low-information voters, isn’t it? Later, loser.

            13. djmc993150 says:

              Aww, Im sorry poor little liberal, I expected you could make the logical deduction. But let me spell it out for you. If you judge people by appearance as a basis for intellect or capability, etc. You are prejudice. The biggest variation in appearance is ethnicity and race. Therefore, you are a racist because you judge people on appearances.

            14. Bladewalker56 says:

              Luckily, you’re proving me correct with every drug-fueled brain fart your neck-sphincter produces. No racism, just the facts. You can go back to buggering your family pets again. Stroke out, loser.

    5. Cruz didn’t start greasing his hair, it is that way because of his lack of personal hygiene. A true greaser.

      1. Jillian5512 says:

        Calling a Latino senator a “greaser?” Wow. Looks like somebody’s a racist.

        1. No. You are wrong and have no concept of what I mean SO I will tell you.
          I am in my 60’s. When I was growing up teen boys/men greased their hair. greasy = dirty in my book and has nothing to do with race. It is a matter of cleanliness. I never cared for the greasy look for mens hair, as to me it always looked dirty, greasy and maybe some women liked the look, I never did as a young girl or even today as an elder woman. When the “dry look” came in, I loved that hair style for men. And as for the Brylcreem- a little dab will do ya look. It sucked then and it does now.
          However, Ted Cruz has been known for his lack of personal hygiene in his college days by numerous other people. SO his greasy look comes from lack of using something called soap and water.
          And I never even though about his ethnic heritage when I made this comment, you are the one who pointed it out. And BTW, I have had a Jewish husband, a Native American husband and after being a widow and divorcee, still keep an open mind to men and their background is immaterial, I just have a thing against being involved with jerks of any background.

    6. Penelope says:

      While our Nation crumbles… you are concerned about hair?

    7. ISeeThruYou says:

      You’re just regurgitating the same comparison Chris Matthews made between Cruz and McCarthy a few years ago. So what if they look alike? McCarthy was right, btw. But anywho, it doesn’t matter. Trump is going all the way.
      TRUMP 2016!!!!!!!

      You honestly think being gay is worse than being a creepy smelly psychopath?

      Where do you live? I’ll be somewhere else.

      1. Jake Spooz says:

        Absolutely.

      2. Jake Spooz says:

        Sticking another man’s pecker in your áss is vile and disgusting.

        1. Liz says:

          Most straight couples engage in butt sex, AND more women climax from butt sex than your lights-off, nightgown-on, forced missionary so-called sex.

          1. Jake Spooz says:

            True…but I was talking about homosexual sex, moron.

  20. lauralth says:

    So funny!!

  21. powerstone05 says:

    There’s alot to criticize about Ted Cruz but going so low as to put his hygiene in the heading? You’re turning into the republicans.

  22. Michael Collins says:

    How many of Obamas college class mates have outed him as a drug dealing foreigner and you liberals don’t care about that.

    1. Jake Spooz says:

      They also said he was gay.

      1. StanS says:

        They still do.
        And he still is.

        1. Liz says:

          Step. Away. From. The. Mirror.

    2. Stephen Norman says:

      As far as I can tell none of them. His high school class mates have confirmed HIS OWN admission of smoking a lot of pot and even indulging in cocaine. In high school. He admitted it. Between creepy, sociopathic stalker and guy that used to smoke weed, there’s just no comparison: I’m going to avoid the sociopath.

    3. rextrek1 says:

      go back to FOX SNOOZE

    4. Ginny Forbes says:

      LMAO! first I heard the ‘drug dealing’ . Yeah, let’s see, drug dealing, foreigner, gay, with a tranny wife, commie, muslim, marxist, all sorts of wacky labels, with ZERO evidence. No, we liberals don’t care about bald assertions , smears and lies . Not one bit . Stop watching FOX and visiting Breitbart or WND. You may wear your ignorance with pride, but to us it is so redundant and -boring

      1. Jake Spooz says:

        You liberals just can’t understand the truth…uf Obama isn’t gay then the Pope isn’t Catholic.

        1. Liz says:

          Most conservative men are closeted gays. We have plenty of evidence to support my claim.

          1. Jake Spooz says:

            Your president is a closeted homosexual. Plenty of evidence for that also.

            1. ahughes798 says:

              Provide some, then.

            2. Jake Spooz says:

              Chicago down low gay club member.
              Had gay Pakistani boyfriend in college.
              Had gay liaisons with church choir leader, Thomas Young.
              Traded sex from drugs with gay drug dealer in HS.
              Has gay men snuck into the WH.

            3. ahughes798 says:

              Your sources?

            4. Jake Spooz says:

              Most of them were killed already.

            5. ahughes798 says:

              Like Vince Foster killed, or Republican Imagination killed?

            6. Jake Spooz says:

              Vince Foster was definitely killed by the Clinton’s….no doubt about that.

              Bathhouse Barry ‘s dead pool is also impressive.

    5. Liz says:

      Uh, none. Keep prostituting yourself for Jeebus, though.

    6. Bladewalker56 says:

      I suppose you have some factual evidence to support your ignorant allegation? Didn’t think so. You should probably stop playing with your home lobotomy kit. You went too deep on that last one.

  23. Jake Spooz says:

    He looks almost as gay as Obama.

  24. Mike Strahn says:

    Head of the drama department explains alot.

  25. Stand_Down says:

    LOL there is going to be lots of weeping and wailing from the Grubers when President Cruz enters the WH

    1. Bladewalker56 says:

      LMMFAO! Cruz will NEVER be president.

  26. Voice In Detroit says:

    So this was the period in which Ted Cruz was radicalized I reckon.

    Why won’t Ted Cruz say “radicalized christian”?! WHY?! Why won’t he SAY IT?!

  27. rextrek1 says:

    Cruz has gotten uglier and uglier as he’s aged

  28. NetDiva says:

    This article is such B.S.

  29. Crystal Waters says:

    As soon as Cruz moves into first place you start digging up old college roommates to say he smells bad. This is the juvenile mentality liberals try to pass off as professionalism these days. Where are the adults?

    1. Charlotte Boyett says:

      Good point Crystal, these goons just prove their immaturity and ignorance with every sentence. That roommate sounds like a jealous teenager. I am tempted to compare their rants and arguments to the mentality of my middle school students but that would be an insult to the intelligence of my students. They certainly don’t convince me that they are professional, respectful, or intelligent enough for me to side with them.

    2. Art Schreck says:

      You’re absolutely right Crystal. We should have our representatives hold 10 hearings costing billions of dollars to determine if he smells bad. After all, that is the GOP way, right?

      1. Ginny Forbes says:

        The right-wing witch hunting hypocrites with their juvenile mentality and schoolyard bullying type rants, arguments and tactics are freaking legendary. Hey, I could list a very long list of examples, but I’ll just say “Republican debates”……remember ? Hilarious . No intelligence there, and for sure there were no adults .

      2. Crystal Waters says:

        Why should it cost anything? We could just take the money from a couple of liberal pet projects, like the 1.5million to find out why lesbians are fat, or better yet if anyone could find the 6 billion the state department claims went missing when run by Hillary Clinton. But lets not talk about that when we can talk about smelly armpits right? With that mentality, it is no wonder America is falling apart.

        1. Art Schreck says:

          Benghazi…….e-mails…….ebola. C’mon now. While there’s plenty of blame to go around it wasn’t the Dems that are saying this stuff about Cruz and certainly not our elected officials. When you start a comment by saying, “This is the juvenile mentality liberals try to pass off as professionalism these days. Where are the adults?” you have a long ways to go to get back to credibility.

        2. Bladewalker56 says:

          Or… we could just take the money from the excessive Benghazi hearings and the already-overbloated defense spending that the Teapublicans worship more often than their imaginary deities.

    3. Liz says:

      LOL. You mean how Bush brought to light Rubio’s family’s connection with organized crime?

  30. Kentc says:

    What Ted Cruz did in college is no more important than what President Obama did in college. Most of us did things in college that are at total odds with the type of person we are today. Most of the comments here are SO predicable. Groupthink gone wild. One of the shortcomings of our current “educational” system is that young people do not have the ability of critical independent thought.

  31. Charly Everett says:

    Great updates…from the classmates that were watching porn and jacking off and now are somewhere in the socialist establishment or searching for a position that pays a “commensurate” rate based on their expertise…and he might be President. Kinda matters where you end up…not many of us are overly proud of our dumb years.

  32. Lizerdmonk says:

    Ego maniac stinky Canadian you guys can have him back.

    1. Jake Spooz says:

      I’m no Cruz fan, but he’s better than the incompetent corrupt and uppity Kenyan we now have.

      1. Tommy says:

        “Uppity”? Why, whatever do you mean by this, Jake Spooz? It’s normally a term used by white supremacist garbage to describe African Americans who stand up for themselves? But, what do you mean by it?

        1. Jake Spooz says:

          Pompous arrogant narcissistic and uppity…all traits of Obama.

          1. Ginny Forbes says:

            One can’t get much more pompous, arrogant, narcissistic and uppity than Trump or Cruz. And Cruz is a extremist–far right wing religious freak. The only slack I will give him with that regards is the fact that his father is far worse than he is. Imagine having some end times jesus freak like that as a father . He even said “God” told him his son would be president. Cukoo for cocoa puffs.

            1. Jake Spooz says:

              I’m no Cruz fan, but he’d be better than the Hildebeest.

              Obama corners the market on being incompetent corrupt and über uppity.

              He’s never worked a honest day in his fraudulent life.

            2. Jake Spooz says:

              Trump has earned the right to be pompous and arrogant.

              Obama hasn’t earned a honest buck in his life.

  33. vegas jack says:

    Nice job Liz!

  34. Darrin Daigle says:

    When you can’t find something good, make wild accusations. Liberals will fall for it.

  35. David from OK says:

    Pretty awful, right? He probably smoked so much weed in high school that he and his buddies had a club dedicated to it, complete with a catchy name like The Choom Gang. Hell, if you dig a little I bet you could uncover him describing his stint as a minor drug dealer. Never mind, I was thinking of someone else.

  36. Capt. Call says:

    Typical lib snark. I guess you all are just jealous , He is smarter and far more accomplished than all of you .Quite possibly our next president.

  37. Mr Brad Thomas Offord says:

    never heard any of this during barrys college days. oh wait, there Is no proof he was there. liberalism is a mental disorder.

    1. Sameasit Everwas says:

      DRD4

  38. tarini540 says:

    There is nothing creepier than liberal vampires out on a rabid hunt for conservative blood. Shame on all of you Ovomit idolators.

  39. Greg Greenlee says:

    Creeping and beating on women got Bill Clinton elected twice? Ted got a Law degree form Harvard, became a national debate champion and Alan Dershowitz said he was one of the most brilliant students that he ever taught while being lazy? Stupid! At least he hasn’t played 300 rounds of golf at taxpayer expense, skipped 60% of his daily intel briefings and I bet he gets to work before 9am every day. You guys got nothing!

  40. Duddioman says:

    So… college guy has BO. Hits snooze a lot, so he’s LAZY, even though he graduated Magna Cum Laude, and was the top debate champion in the country. (Go figure, he likes to argue, because DEBATE CHAMPION!!!)

    As for the bathrobe thing and the girls, there is no exposing himself, no lewd gestures or statements to the girls, he’s creepy just because he is around. DUDE, he’s SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD and a freshman in college. Prolly his first time living away from home.

    Can you see how insane your hatred is of someone to go back to a 17 year-old’s freshman college year to attack them? Cause there is nothing else you can find to impugn his character. You are a special kind of sad, and the irony of all this is, that what you and Craig Mazin are doing is creepy!!

    Liz Lee, would you like America to follow your every move through your 17th year of life and comment on every decision you made? I bet there is far worse than body odor and snooze-hitting.

    Pathetic….

    1. Liz says:

      Ninety-three percent of pedophiles are Christian. Cruz isn’t an exception.

  41. StanS says:

    You people and especially Craig are too funny.
    You are nothing but trolls that sound like a house full of Kardashians and Kanye West at Bruce Jenner’s birthday party.
    The gene pool is shallow with your kind.

  42. IReadit3 says:

    So Cruz pi$$ed off a liberal? Where can I donate to his campaign.

  43. Paul Seaton says:

    What a creepy article! If somebody had written this horse shit about Hillary Clinton you all would be screaming how sexist it is. What point is there at all in writing about a persons body odor? Just a hack piece to try and paint the guy in a bad light.

    Well fuck you. If the worst you can say about Cruz is that he had body odor you’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    1. Liz says:

      Cruz looked like a chick when he was young. You like trans now?

  44. American dirtbag says:

    Had a Conservative said this about a Democrat Senator with the same heritage they would be deemed racist lol

  45. ProteinBar says:

    You people are so predictable. You can’t defeat him in talking about the issues so you smear his personality. Pathetic.

    1. Liz says:

      What personality?

  46. StanS says:

    “When Ted Cruz was my roommate, he’d endlessly hit the snooze button. I asked him to stop. He wouldn’t. So I Krazy-glued it.”
    So according to this wizard; Cruz shouldn’t be President because he hit the snooze button?
    What an ass. I would have duct taped Craig to his bed over Christmas break with a sign on the dorm door “Science Experiment in progress” “Do Not Open”.

  47. Pete Cox says:

    Thanks for your report.It’s been 7 years,why no college mates of obama?
    He did go to two very prestigious universities and I would think people would be knocking down your doors to tell you they were friends with the first multi racial president.

  48. brad62 says:

    Who still lives like they did in college ? At least Ted has grown up, done well for himself and is trying to save this country while most of the people in this post are still acting like jealous gossiping high school punks.

  49. Secure says:

    Really hoping that Trump destroys Ted Cruz. Cruz is actually much worse.

  50. Brandon Insel says:

    Sounds like Ted Cruz’s room-mate was in love or something……… Get over the rejection Craig…….

  51. Noli Me Calcare says:

    You Libs are grasping at straws. WOW. Lazy. Creepy. Hung out by the girls. How about Bill Clinton who would have humped their legs and sexually assaulted them. Not creepy at all.

  52. Robbie says:

    You stupid shits believe anything you read, lol. And WHO CARES?? If any of this is true, that makes him what, a normal college student?? Gimme a break.

    1. tomenokr says:

      Interesting how you have less upvotes than comments. Perhaps it’s because you wear a pretty pink dress and have a sailors mouth.

      Mommy will take away your pretty sparkly tiara, Nancy.

  53. Vicki Myers says:

    People do grow up since college. The guy is one of the smartest candidates up there.

  54. Alborn says:

    At least you know he had a roommate. I am sure the feelings are mutual. Can’t say that I liked all my roommates but I am not stupid enough to think that people do not change from their freshman year in college. Give me a break.

  55. Adrian says:

    Well,now that we are venting the closet,may I ask after seven years…. where are Barrys former room mates?

  56. Ralph says:

    From the way this roommate critic of Ted Cruz talks, his values and lifestyle are deeply flawed. He’s not exactly an objective voice. A criticism from a person such as this is a compliment. Jesus said, “Woe to you when all men speak well of you…” And at another time, “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.”

    BTW. Even if this critic’s assessments were all true, which I seriously doubt, he’s describing most of us guys as college freshmen, at one time or another. “Body Odor, Laziness, Creeping On Women.” I had my share of roommates. Most of them were really great guys, but sometimes we were, “sweaty, stinky, procrastinating, girl watchin.'” And yes, we argued.

  57. Lord Humungus says:

    I love the straw grasping you “liberals” are trying here. Graduates cum laude from Princeton and he’s “lazy”. Graduates magna cum laude from Harvard. And oh wow, a college student who “smells”. His roommate must not have liked Cuban people, which you’d be calling racist were he a Democrat.

    When President Cruz is inaugurated in 2017 I’ll make sure to check in.

    1. Miles Long says:

      No doubt he did “cum laude” while he was trolling the halls of the women’s section with nothing on under his robe.

      1. djmc993150 says:

        Like Bill Clinton pretty much every day of his life?

        1. Miles Long says:

          Like many conservatives, you miss the point. Bill Clinton didn’t constantly wag his finger in other people’s face, telling them what terrible sinners they were and how he prayed five times a day and talked to god before he made any decisions about how a government couldn’t run properly unless you voted for him and god.

          So no…not like Bill Clinton pretty much every day of his life. Oh, and another thing…women evidently sought Clinton out for fun. Cruz, on the other hand, just made most of them want to take a long, hot shower after every time he even got within 20 feet of them.

          1. djmc993150 says:

            Like all moral relativists liberals, either a behavior is right or it isnt. Regardless of who does it or their political affiliation. And you are right its not like Clinton.

            “Women” pursuing Bill Clinton would be considered sexual harassment or worse in the government. The same as some college professor using his position to sleep with students who “pursue” him.

            You are a disgusting hypocrite that excuses any crime up to and including rape and murder, so long as the culprit has a D after their name. Thanks for admitting your disgusting standard.

            1. Miles Long says:

              “Either a behaviour is right or it isn’t”.

              So since sex within the bounds of a marital relationship is OK, no doubt you believe having sex with children is fine, just as long as you marry them first. Or are you a moral relativist? (snicker)

            2. djmc993150 says:

              Say it with me folks.

              Non sequitur.

              Wrong again liberal. Too bad you teacher spent more time indoctrinating you then teaching you argument fallacies.

            3. Miles Long says:

              Say it with me, folks…Short Eyes So which are you, a moral relativist or a “youth worshiper”? :-)

            4. djmc993150 says:

              That’s called a strawman with an ad hominem.

              Keep going I can educate you more.

            5. Miles Long says:

              Actually, you can’t. What you can do is throw up the names of
              logical fallacies you clearly don’t understand in an attempt to evade
              the fact that your own logical fallacy opened you up to a little
              gleefully-applied hyperbole on my part that exposed the essential
              ridiculousness of your comment.

            6. djmc993150 says:

              whatever you need to tell yourself. Your pathetic attempt at “argument” is there for all to see.

            7. Miles Long says:

              It would appear that you’re too…”special” to understand just how ironic your comment is. :-)

            8. Bladewalker56 says:

              Says the idiot justifying the immoral behavior of Ted Cruz.

            9. djmc993150 says:

              LMAO if you only had a brain maybe you wouldnt need to strawman.

            10. Bladewalker56 says:

              If you had a brain, you wouldn’t have to rely on what you pull out of your ass to formulate your idiotic opinions. Later, loser.

  58. Marcinema says:

    Well, just more reasons to dislike him. Creep then, creep now.

    1. Jim Oakley says:

      Obviously your definition of “creep” needs updating huh?

      1. Marcinema says:

        Cruz, is update enough.

        1. djmc993150 says:

          But you ARE okay with barry sotero being a gay male prostitute for drugs. Interesting standard you have for creep. I don’t think the word means what you think it does.

          1. Marcinema says:

            I don’t know what bullshit you are babbling about.

  59. Mercyneal says:

    He looks ok to me.

  60. Jim Oakley says:

    The type of comments one would expect from liberals against anyone they saw as being in any way different from them. Pigs like to roll in the mud with other pigs so we see their slanderous comments. Ted Cruz has a higher standard of morals than they do and so they have to tear that down anyway they can. Sad, but I see it all the time. Liberals are a sorry lot in my view.

  61. Scooterific2762 . says:

    Yea, ignore all the stories about obama.

    1. Bladewalker56 says:

      Especially, when they come from a conservative source.

  62. Elaine Rice Somerville says:

    Liberals are the worst excuse for human beings, disgusting, perverse, and downright hateful. They can’t sell their socialist crap so they call names and make up perverse things about people. It’s sad!

    1. Bladewalker56 says:

      No, you’re thinking of yourself and your conservative cronies. You can’t win an election by being honest and truthful, so you belch out lie after pathetic lie hoping that anyone will believe them and thus help you retain your fictional narrative. Sadly, the only ones who actually believe those half-baked lies are low-information conservatives and Fox News acolytes.

  63. Lynn says:

    What the fuck! You dems/pros are desperate! Good grief! Who couldn’t drag up trash from college years? If you post it…validates it! Otherwise…it is just BS.

  65. dukiepie says:

  66. Richard Hart says:

    It sounds to me as if Craig Mazin is the asshole.

  67. Richard Hart says:

    It’s interesting how the Liberals are so tolerant when someone is hard Left. Bill Clinton was actually a rapist and a pathological liar and they just couldn’t get enough of him. Do you even want to get into Barack Obama’s past? And I’m actually not supposed to vote for Ted Cruz because he hit the snooze button too many times?

  68. pokenhorn says:

    Screen writer Craig Mazin ? Never heard of him. This is his one and only chance to get his name out there. Wasn’t he a child molester back then ? Still is maybe. By the way, Tailgunner Joe was right.

  69. Jake Spooz says:

    BFD…we’ve had numerous ex- classmates of Bathhouse Barry saying that he did coke and sucked cóck in college. Serviced old white men to earn money for drugs.

    1. Liz says:

      You a baby raper like Cruz?

      1. Jake Spooz says:

        Who mentioned anything about Cruz….I’m not a fan, but at least he’s not a flaming queer like Bathhouse Barry.

  70. Catcreekslim says:

    I have to laugh watching you all go absolutely insane over this candidate, if this is the best you have perhaps the uppity Liz Lee should get out of the swap more often!

  72. djmc993150 says:

    Wow, this is journalism now?

    Can you find some girl from his elementary school to say he gave her cooties too?

    Maybe some saw him step on a Crack and broke his grandmother’s back?

  73. Steve Bonning says:

    The argument is lost when one side has to resort to attacks on personality, looks, etc. instead of the issues. Ad hominem attacks are a desperate, faulty logic.

  74. Ernesto DelMundo says:

    Cuba has been shipping the USA the dregs of their society ever since 1959.

  75. Skip Press says:

    Well, Craig Mazin, YOU are sure not going to get the job of making Ted Cruz commercials.

  76. Johnny Slade says:

    He’s a rat faced fuck

  77. Karma's a B!$<h says:

    “Creeping on women”???? I can’t imagine that Ted would ever hold a candle to “old Billy Boy Clinton, the “Creeper in Chief”!!

  78. ...truth says:

    I like ve the comment earlier…Cruz looks like the ventriloquist’s dummy sitting on his lap…and he DOES look like that too (: >)

  79. Katie Schaefer says:

    Useless information and even more ridiculous comments below. Must have been a slow news day for Liz Lee to take the time to write such a ridiculous piece. I’m not a Ted Cruz fan and I find him creepy but this article is just garbage.

  80. Joe Cool says:

    New low in petty grade-school immaturity so typical of today’s liberal “elitists”… keep it up folks – soon we won’t need to point it out any longer because even the idiots who follow your dogma will see it for what it is.

  81. Shawn Pavlik says:

    This is tame, compared to the dope-smoking, cocaine-sniffing, Communist collegiate experience of our current resident of the white house.

  82. steve48 says:

    Wanna take bets that this Craig guy is a flaming liberal and that none of this is true?

  83. Issac Abrams says:

    So Cruz is a “chip off the ole block.”…hid dad, Rafael, is a argumentative,racist, loud-mouth,maniac

  84. Jamie Clemons says:

    I really don’t like Cruz, but seriously…. Poor taste in clothes, likes girls, poor hygiene habits, few friends, you could be describing the majority of college students. Do you have anything of any real substance?

  85. Daniel Carlson says:

    I went to college….college students stunk – they were lazy – they screamed and yelled and argued. So I guess what I’m asking is: what’s your point???? Why be sleazy and hypocritical just to push your political ideology? Why can’t liberals actually practice what they preach and treat others the way they want to be treated? Get out of high school comprehension and interaction mode and GROW UP! Do yourself and others a favor and grow a pair or shut up!

  86. discojoe says:

    Sounds like the perfect R candidate to me.

  87. David Hill says:

    “He was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn’t strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian.”“He had brilliant insights and he was clearly among the top students, as revealed by his class responses.” – Alan Dershowitz, prof, at Harvard Law.

  88. Scooter Livingston says:

    Hey Ted….

    Just sayin’….

  89. Ted has all the hallmarks of a true psychopath. He lusts for power above all and will do anything he thinks necessary to achieve his goals. His pretense to Christianity would be laughable were it not so convincing to the gullible masses.

      You could just as well be talking about Hillary.

      1. Yes I suppose you’re right. Anyone who advocates the for profit prison system among other things clearly does not have the best interest of the American people at heart.
        I for one am disgusted at being ruled by the rich who have no idea of the concept of Noblesse Oblige. The fake Christianity is also a telling attribute in these vampires.

      2. yeah but Ted is a special kind of creepy.

    This is the best you have?
    To defame someone’s character based on this? Tells more about you than the individual you are seeking to discredit.

    Hey Liz, Barack Ubama, kewlest president evah, has stinky feet. It is known.

  93. RECALLTHERINOS says:

    Well at least he didn’t smoke a crack pipe and he has had years to mature. Besides we all know liberals lie. So you really want to open this can of worms when liberals have the most worms to expose? Shows liberals are scared what a very lame attack. And who listens to wierdo liberals anymore after the whole Obama trainwreck? Get a life and then maybe you all won’t be so miserable.

  94. Brian Riker says:

    If the Left is forced to resort to this level of sophomoric personal attack, I think future president has nothing to worry about. What young person doesn’t go through an awkward period in adolescence and early adulthood? Where is the tolerance and understanding?

    1. TravisJSays says:

      Gotta agree. I switched freshman room-mates, we didnt get along, but that didn’t make either of us worst person in the world (actually later on, he confided to me his newer room-mate was a total weirdo who went around dressed as a D&D elf or something).

      So his roomie wore paisley bathrobe and would overuse the snooze button? OMG the terror! #FirstWorldProblems #growtheheckup #moveon

  96. Thomas Cahill says:

    Lmao. This is the most childish piece of rubbish I’ve read in a long ime. You liberals are really pathetic. “Ted Cruz has b.o.”. “Ted Cruz is creepy” I almost feel like I am reading notes passed by high school kids in home room.

  97. jovan says:

    haters gonna hate!!

  98. JenellYB says:

    So fricken what, people? I am far from being a Cruz fan. But I’m just sick and tired of people on any side harping on and on about some candidates supposed personal traits, or appearance, that have absolutely zilch to do with anything.

  99. Ha ha! This is exactly why I wouldn’t ever run for a political office. lol

  100. Brian Bertha says:

    Let me get this straight Ted Cruz went to Princeton obviously an ultra right wing school oh its not hmmm maybe thats why Cruza didnt fit in. As to Lazy thats pure BS the man has always been a workaholic and everyone knows it. As to Creepy around women and smelly any of you been or have a teenage boy in the house. I mean if this is your best shot you shot yourself in the foot. Now who wants to talk about Obama’s time in was it Columbia I am not sure seems few remember him

  101. David Secrist says:

    lol, Progressive communists will do anything to cut down someone that is about to kick their ass.

    1. Bladewalker56 says:

      The only way that Ted “Crusty” Cruz will ever see the Oval Office is on a tour of the White House. The only ass he’s kicking is his own.

      1. David Secrist says:

        Remember those words young man…

        1. Bladewalker56 says:

          Ted Cruz will never be president. There just aren’t enough people in America who are stupid enough to vote him into office.

          1. David Secrist says:

            Maybe not, but there were more than enough stupid people that voted Odingleberry into office. Too bad the Christians set out that election, we might have saved this rock.

            1. Bladewalker56 says:

              LMMFAO! I give very high marks to anyone whose only interest in the GOP is in watching them commit political hara-kiri as they’re doing right now. The only thing we should ever actually need to be saved from is further exposure to the GOP clown car occupants and their medieval brand of toxic, pseudo-Christian values. Luckily for America, the chances of such toxic exposure are dwindling every day.

            2. David Secrist says:

              The GOP and the Progressive communist party (D) have both shit in their own nests. What used to be the democrat party of JFK and LBJ both have long left the democrats of that time. They are Progressive Communists, and what used to be the GOP are middle of the road democrats. JFK would be to the right of John McCain today.

              You can whine and cry about Christian values all you want, This once great country was founded on those values and we did real good until the socialists/communists got a foot hold in our government and started pushing their agenda of taking us down, and the indoctrinated idiots that has graduated school in the last 25 years are helping them.

            3. Bladewalker56 says:

              And, still, the Democratic Party has so much more to offer than the Republicans; who, at this time have nothing to offer but outright distraction, hatred towards their fellow Americans and unbridled bigotry. Obviously, I’m not the one whining and crying about Christian values as Christians and their alleged values are mutually exclusive as well as wholly immeasurable. The values upon which America was founded were in existence long before Christianity and will be here long after Christianity is just a bad memory. Despite your poor logic and false rhetoric, this country was not founded on Christian values, nor on it’s morality. The only indoctrinated idiots that I’ve seen so far are the conservatives who are apparently uninformed enough to think that a half-wit like Ted Cruz would make a good dog catcher, much less make a good President of the United States.

            4. David Secrist says:

              First off there is NOTHING democratic about the democrat party. The democrat party has been long gone for decades. They ran off and left the democrats back in the 60’s. The only thing the progressive communist party has to offer is slavery. Think about it, They make victims out of anyone they can squeeze a vote out of and then turn around and hold them down all that much harder. They push the black community to believe they have been victims and guess what, there are move poor blacks today than there were 40 years ago. You can’t name one single thing that the Republicans have done that shows hatred toward fellow Americans, and until you actually know the definition of bigot or bigotry, you probably shouldn’t use it. Christianity is exactly what America was founded on. You can’t name a single thing that America was founded on that is not from Christianity, which was around way more than a thousand years before America was even a dream. When did you go to school? When did you graduate? Unless you graduate before 1980, you are definitely a product of indoctrination. Anyone that believes socialism is the way to go are a product of indoctrination. We fought socialism and communism for many many decades and many good men and women died fighting it, and now the kiddies of America are helping the enemy push for it. THAT is indoctrination.

            5. Bladewalker56 says:

              First off, the worst Democrat candidate is better than the best Republican candidate. I can name quite a few things that the Republicans have done which prove they hate their fellow Americans: 1) Shutting down the government while their Tea Party proponents read Green Eggs & Ham. Shouldn’t they be going the will of America instead of just their own party? 2) They’ve fought most attempts to legislate that all citizens are treated equally under the law; 3) They’ve reinterpreted the Constitution to fit their narrative, rather than let it fit the American people, as a whole. Yes, Christianity WAS around for more than a thousand years before America was founded, but… the values that America is based upon were in existence long before Christianity. You’re still confusing Democratic Socialism with Socialism and you’re failing miserably in your argument because you haven’t got the first fucking clue of what you’re babbling about. What we have and what has worked well for America is Democratic Socialism. It isn’t Socialism at all; that’s something entirely different. If you weren’t so busy lying to yourself, you’d see that I’m right.

            6. David Secrist says:

              You are blind. There is no such thing as democratic socialism. There is socialism, Period. That said, there is a hell of a lot of difference between social programs and socialism, and you and your indoctrinated fool friends are helping the communists bring socialism to this country. Why do you think Donald Trump has a larger following than ALL other candidates combined from both parties? I can tell you why, it’s because the majority of America is sick and tired of the democrats and the RINO republicans sucking the life out of this country and Trump is saying everything that the majority of America wants to see happen. Democrats don’t give a crap about you or any minority, All they care about is making them all professional victims and sucking the votes out of you. Get ready because Donald Trump will be your next president unless the democrats and the GOP establishment join forces and force him out (which I feel they will try). At that point even YOU will understand that I am right.

            7. Bladewalker56 says:

              The blindness is all yours. There absolutely IS such a thing as democratic socialism and we’ve been enjoying forms of it for more than 150 years. Period. The part that you’re purposely ignoring is that in real Socialism, the means of producing and distributing goods is owned
              collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and
              controls the economy. The USA currently is and has definitely been a democratic socialist republic for most of that time.

              The Democrats are the party of choice this season because neither the Republicans, nor Libertarians, nor anyone else can provide a candidate that appeals to anyone with more than a single-digit IQ.

              Your claim that Trump has more support than any of the candidates combined is just wishful, hopeful thinking on your part. Donald Drumpf will never be president. America just isn’t that fucking stupid.

            8. David Secrist says:

              You are a damn fool, and I wish I could say it to your face. You and idiots like you are the reason this place has turned to shit.

            9. Bladewalker56 says:

              Sorry, but I could only be a true fool if I were gullible and stupid enough to agree with you. It’s gullible, right-wing half-wits like you who’ve turned America into shit. Your idiotic policies and their many failures, your uneducated behavior and your inexplicable ability to want to blame everyone but yourselves are the reasons that your party is dying and you mouth-breathers are too stupid and clueless to realize how toxic your BS opinions really are. Good luck with that.

            10. David Secrist says:

              My party is dying? I’m not part of any party young man (or woman)… And my country was just fine until your messiah Odumbass took office. Why don’t you communist sons a bitchs go to some commie country that fits your needs instead of screwing this one up.

            11. Bladewalker56 says:

              I love the way you idiots begin your comments; full of wondrously-educated terms like, “Odumbass” and ‘libtard”. Use of those terms prove without a doubt that your willful ignorance is the biggest thing that you possess. OUR country already is better, and greater thanks to the efforts of OUR president, President Barack Obama. Do us all a favor and just kill yourself now.

            12. Bladewalker56 says:

              Yes, your party is dying. Your party of little common sense, no forward vision and barely measurable intelligence that collects dim-witted morons like you to help spread their fecal ideas and toxic, poorly-educated opinions. Cultivated stupidity like yours must be very liberating. Thankfully, I’ll never have to know what that feels like, Jethro.

    Ted is still the same

  103. Joe Mamma says:

    Is this the best they can find to attack Cruz?
    BO….. Seriously, from an unverified source?

  104. Niru says:

    Looks like Bundy … you know in that sitcom…

  105. Josh Weinstein says:

    This does not surprise me. Many Republicans have come out against him as well. A couple of them even threatened to switch parties if he was elected President. What a bunch of turds these guys are. Trump, who wants to force people of a certain religious background to register for a national database, Ted Cruz who believes he can overturn Supreme Court decisions by executive order and Marco Rubio who has promised to issue an executive order ending abortion rights. He has executive orders confused with royal decrees. Any one of these people would be so terrible for the US, that we may never recover from it. Look what Bush did, to the economy, to our standing in the world, to the wars he started… It has taken Obama EIGHT YEARS to fix it! And we will be paying for it for decades to come. We cannot afford another Republican disaster of a Presidency. And I would like to know… Let’s say Obama WAS born in Kenya, just for the sake of argument. His mother was a US citizen, nobody has disputed that, but Republicans claimed that would make him ineligible to be President. Now, Ted Cruz also had a mother who was a US citizen, that is also not disputed. But he was born in Canada and in fact was a Canadian citizen, how is it that he WOULD be eligible to run? Did I miss something in the Constitution that had different rules based on skin color?

  106. Will Jones says:

    Cruz is obviously a homosexual, at best. If he goes with women it’s just to convince himself he’s “bi,” and not just gay.
