I’m betting Ted Cruz will be accused of racism and Islamophobia and every other kind of bigotry for skipping Imam Obama’s last “State of the Union” speech.
From the Hill:
When President Obama enters the House chamber to give his final State of the Union address on Tuesday, one of the three Republican presidential candidates in Congress will be missing.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will skip the president’s address, opting instead to head to New Hampshire where he hasn’t campaigned since November, a Cruz campaign spokesman confirmed.
The three remaining candidates — Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — will attend.
Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told The Hill that the Texas senator will be “disappointed” by the president’s speech regardless of where he’ll be. “It won’t matter because he’ll be just as disappointed in New Hampshire as he will be in the chamber.”
“It’s not a snub. He’s going to be in New Hampshire, working hard to win New Hampshire,” Tyler told The Dallas Morning News. “No disrespect. It just is going to work out this way.”
Sanders, Rubio and Rand Paul will all be attending because they’re RINOS!!! Except Bernie, he’s just a dumb socialist. Also is the only thing in Congress that Rubio is willing to attend is Obama’s speech about how wonderful he is? GO SWALLOW A GALLON OF WATER, YOU FLORIDA SENATOR! #BOOM!!
I just used a hashtag in a regular sentence. Deal with it.
