Ted Cruz is living in quite the dual world these days… including coming home to standing ovations…
While a Daily Beast contributor, Dean Obeidallah, tweeted about Ted Cruz and John McCain fighting in an old-fashioned duel, Cruz received an actual threat via twitter as well.
Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Cruz by a person posting on Twitter as Troy Gilmore Jr.:
“Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston…
The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy…
“What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” the person wrote.
At about 5:30 pm on Friday, @ArmyVet54 posted another apparent threat, urging that Cruz “needs to be taught a street wise lesson”.
The person posted Cruz’s home address several other times this month and repeatedly used threatening language.
“Anyone else hoping Ted Cruz and John McCain settle their feud in an Aaron Burr-Alexander Hamilton style duel? I’d be rooting for John McCain,” Dean Obeidallah tweeted.
Meanwhile in San Antonio, Cruz returned home to a rousing Texas welcome on Saturday after his attempt to derail Obamacare with a shutdown of the federal government. The standing ovation for Ted lasted for eight minutes.
“After two months in Washington, it’s great to be back in America,” Cruz joked in speaking to a crowd of about 750 people in a packed downtown San Antonio hotel ballroom… 8-Minute Standing Ovation:
Then on on October 22nd, 2013, Sen. Cruz visited Arlington, Texas, speaking at an event organized by several DFW-area grassroots organizations including, the Lone Star Tea Party (Arlington). Here is video of the record 13 minute standing ovation.
**WARNING: ADJUST/LOWER THE VOLUME OF YOUR SPEAKERS FIRST**
The crowd was insanely loud!

Funny, or maybe not so funny, how ‘Democrats’ in both the House and the Senate are now demanding a ‘1-year’ delay in the rollout of the ObamaCare trainwreck, exactly what Ted Cruz and the so-called ‘crazy Tea Party’ Republicans were asking for during the shutdown, who were called every name in the book by the liberal media and their Democrat counterparts… but now the Dems are sensible?!? Hmmm??
