Ted Cruz, Republican Senator from Texas: Cruz was single handedly responsible for the recent government shutdown. His support of the Tea Party continues to split the Republican party. He blamed President Obama for the shutdown when in fact it was Cruz who suggested the action to the Senate and House. He must think we are all ignorant with short term memory deficit not to remember his actions. The Republicans are afraid to punish him for not following party lines since nothing seems to phase him. He could care less if they censure him or take him off the committees in which he serves. Most recently he refused to budge from his stand on the budget. It is his way or the highway.
Cruz also holds dual citizenship for Canada and the US. He has said that he intends to withdraw his Canadian citizenship over seven months ago. It is one simple form that needs to be submitted and yet he keeps giving excuses for not filling out the form and submitting it. I don't think we want a Senator much less a President holding dual citizenship to be in office. Perhaps he has dreams of being king of North America.
John McCain, Republican Senator from Arizona: McCain recently announced that unless immigration reform was passed the Republicans had no chance of gaining the Presidency in 2016. Immigration reform is a human issue and has no place being used solely as a political football. It is an issue that involves the protection and borders of the US and allows those deserving of a place in our diverse country to become part of the nation. Without migrant farm workers from Mexico and South America we would have no food to eat. They are doing the jobs that most US citizens refuse to do. I have consulted for many of our largest food industrial plants and find that all of them are staffed by immigrant workers from south of our borders. Shame on Mr McCain.
More recently he railed on President Obama for taking no action against Russia involving the Ukraine crisis. The fact is that no Republican President has ever taken any kind of action against Russia in similar circumstances. The fact is that President Obama has taken a very hard line against any Russian interference regarding the Ukraine. Perhaps the Senator thinks we are oblivious to the past and the present. All blustering talk with no substance or regard for this nation.
Darrel Issa, Republican Representative from California: Issa is chairman of the House Oversight Committee. He is outspoken about government spending and consistantly votes against any increase. Still he continues to spend money having investigation after investigation looking for the smoking gun to impeach President Obama. His latest investigation of the IRS involves looking for any connection to the President regarding the IRS failure to grant tax free status to Tea Party Republican organizations. There is no connection to the white house regarding anything regarding the IRS the disaster in Lybia or anything else for that matter. Issa recently stormed out of a hearing enraged that he was not getting his way just as a six year old might do. Perhaps it is time for him to get back to work on solving the nation's problems rather than his chase of the President.
Ted Nugent, private citizen: This is the most hate filled individual with a voice that I have ever encountered. He constantly refers to political personalities that he disagrees with as Nazis and connecting them somehow to Hitler. He recently referred to President Obama as a "subhuman throwback." It is obvious he has no respect for our government or the office of President. He also has a program on the "Outdoor Channel" about guns, bows and arrows and trophy hunting. He certainly demonstrates that he has little respect for our diminishing wildlife and ecology. I'm convinced that his love of guns is a result of some male deficiency which is being replaced with his favorite phallic symbol. His remark about President Obama is racist and has no place in our national pride. I would suggest that the "Outdoor Channel" remove him from their programing.
