    Ted Cruz Jokes About Joe Biden, As Biden Grieves For His Son

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made a crass and poorly timed joke about Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday, days after Biden's son Beau died from brain cancer.
    According to Detroit News reporter Chad Livengood, Cruz was speaking at a meeting of the Livingston County Republican Party outside Detroit when he mocked Biden.
    "Vice President Joe Biden. You know the nice thing? You don't need a punch line," Cruz said.
    Biden's son Beau died on Saturday from brain cancer. The family is holding a public viewing on Thursday in Dover, Delaware. On Saturday, President Barack Obama is to deliver a eulogy at the funeral in Wilmington, Delaware.
    Livengood said on Twitter that when he asked Cruz after the event why he joked about Biden, given the timing, Cruz simply "turned and walked away."

    Okay, so he apologized later, but that doesn't make him any less of a dick. Sorry - but this is just more proof that he is not presidential material.

    Thing is....it's not that Cruz is a slimeball so much...

    as how STUPID he is.

    He didn't think that cracking jokes on Biden 4 days after his son died MIGHT "not look good" for himself?

    That's not just ill-mannered and heartless......it's just plain idiotic.

    CBS, NBC Hype Cruz’s Biden Joke, Ignore Liberal Group Behind Video

    On Thursday, both CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today rushed to play up how Senator Ted Cruz apologized for a joke he made about Vice President Joe Biden just days after his son died but both ignored that the video was produced by the far left Super PAC American Bridge.
    This was not the first time that the networks have failed to identify when a liberal has gone after a prominent Republican politician. In October of 2014, Chris Christie was confronted by a heckler, and Democratic politician, at a campaign event, and instead of identifying his political ideology, the Big Three all scolded the New Jersey Governor for fighting back.

    Furthermore, while CBS and NBC were quick to promote Ted Cruz’s unfortunate gaffe directed at Vice President Biden, in the past the “Big Three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) networks have repeatedly buried Biden’s numerous embarrassing moments over the years.
    As NewsBusters’ Geoffrey Dickens has documented, the Big Three have gone out of their way to not cover Biden’s history of gaffes, including telling a disabled man to “Stand Up!” as well has his infamous 7-11 slur in which he said “You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent...I’m not joking.”
    I'm sorry for his loss, but it doesn't make Biden himself any less of a joke or gaffe machine.

    He isn't stupid at all. He is a pompous frat boy and thinks this stuff is funny. Notice he never sticks around after, he just walks out of the room or off camera. He cant turn off the jerkiness.

    He's a jerk....but his timing showed his stupidity.

    BTW as we see in Post #5.....Cruz can't lose the Jerk Vote. Most of the rest of the country though...aren't jerks.

    Bye-bye Ted....even the RNC Big Money Boys know a loser when they see one.

    I think we might see quite a few drop out fairly quickly, possibly even before the first primary due to finances. I just don't see Cruz agreeing to compete in a secondary debate if he doesn't make it in the first group. He will pout and walk away.

    Nah, he'll try to get the other candidates to shut the debates down...
