The mother of a 3-year-old girl insisted to Fox News on Tuesday that her daughter had not been scared when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told her that “your world is on fire” because he was the “hero” who could save her. At a speech in New Hampshire on Sunday, Cruz had warned a crowd of supporters…

“”Doocy opined. “There are a number of mainstream media outlets who try to make people on the political right look like crazy people.”””
yeah Steve because all know that FOX would never, ever portray as crazy a mother and daughter who referred to President Obama as a hero.

They do a pretty good job of that without any help from the media.

“There are a number of mainstream media outlets who try to make people on the political right look like crazy people.”
Those SOBs in the mainstream media also have the gall to use direct quotes, and those ‘fact’ thingies, too!

Yes, how dare they use someone’s exact words against them? Reminds me of when Charles Barkley claimed he was misquoted in his own autobiography.
Larry Schmitt March 17th, 2015 at 6:13 pm
But in Charles’ defense, he didn’t actually write it.

I played ball when I was a kid and I loved Danny Ainge when he played on the Celtics, Eventually he played with Barkley on the Phoenix Suns, so I watched his game and quickly became a fan of his as well. When he claimed women do not belong on courts, when he was referring to officials, I was done with him.

barkley is a fk’n idiot. i can’t stand the babbling fool. mostly, i can’t understand anything he says.
Suzanne McFly March 17th, 2015 at 7:41 pm
I appreciated his game, I had no idea about his stupidity. He didn’t talk much when he played (except when he talked smack to other players), but now that he is retired he won’t shut up. I guess his “staff” kept him quiet for the most part, but now he is no longer playing and staff is not required by the team.

Barkley speaks his mind. You agree with him or you don’t.
He also famously said he used to be a Republican before they lost their minds.
Nobody is perfect. Only thing I remember though about Barkley and female officials was he said it was cool, or something like that.
Suzanne McFly March 17th, 2015 at 7:44 pm
Last I heard he said women don’t belong on the courts when he was referring to referees, maybe he has come to terms with us being on the courts since. That would be good news to me.

That poor, poor little girl. She doesn’t have a chance.

People on the right ARE crazy! Go ahead, Lady, vote against your own self interest, like the rest of the Rethug angry white people.
Suzanne McFly March 17th, 2015 at 6:38 pm
How the hell is this nut job a hero? Someone needs a dictionary and that little girl needs to be rescued.
Hirightnow March 17th, 2015 at 7:43 pm
That crying and screaming just comes naturally to someone who sees their hero.
trees March 18th, 2015 at 12:00 am
You should prolly check out the video, cause the only cryin’ and screamin’ I can see is being expressed by your compadres here at LL……
fancypants March 17th, 2015 at 8:45 pm
some people call this a planned reaction

You just can’t make this stuff up, Alan posts this……
On the same day he posts this…………
Well, which is it???
Did Cruz scare a little girl?
William March 18th, 2015 at 12:26 am
Is there a point system in bagger-world now? Or are these two having some sort of contest?
MR. RIGHT March 18th, 2015 at 12:31 am
If you can’t scare a three year old, you aren’t a very good Republican. The GOOD ones can scare a 50 year old FOX news reader.
William March 18th, 2015 at 12:31 am
Michelle, you know it works,” Doocy opined. “There are a number of mainstream media outlets who try to make people on the political right look like crazy people.”
People on the right are more than capable of doing that all by themselves.
MR. RIGHT March 18th, 2015 at 12:33 am
Funny how these people are always on FOX the next day.
William March 18th, 2015 at 12:46 am
Yeah on Fox and friends.
oldfart March 18th, 2015 at 1:27 am

jybarz March 18th, 2015 at 1:52 am
You got to be crazy to think cruz/conservatives/fox are not crazy.
