U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, used a protester’s outburst Saturday to riff on how unhinged the left is, how the display of anger was evidence of the tough race he faces against U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke in the fall, and how it was really President Barack Obama who colluded with Russia, while invoking a favorite line from his favorite movie, “The Princess Bride.”

The interruption came early in Cruz’s conversation onstage with conservative radio host and blogger Erick Erickson on the second and last day of Erickson’s Resurgent Gathering, a conference for movement conservatives being held at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol.

Holding up a cardboard sign with the words, “Cruz: Russian bootlicker,” a young man stood and shouted toward the podium, “You’re a coward, Ted. Fight the trade war. Stand up to Russia. Stand up for all Texans.”

---“It seems to me the very definition of cowardice is standing up and screaming like a child and being afraid to engage in any substance, not knowing any substance, which is why you’re afraid to engage in any substance, and just yelling, ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ which is what I guess the fever swamps of the left have told him,” Cruz said.

“The irony of course is that eight years of Obama were eight years of absolute appeasement,” Cruz said.

Picking up on the language in the young man’s sign, Cruz said, “We saw eight years of bootlicking for Vladimir Putin.”

“And you want to talk about collusion, our friends, the networks, actually have Russia collusion of the president on live feed when Obama leaned over and said, ‘Tell Vladimir I’ll have much more flexibility after the election,’ ” Cruz said.

He who makes an attempt to enslave me, thereby puts himself into a state of war with me.

He is absolutely correct and glad he reminded people that in 2012 Bammy was overheard over a hot microphone telling President Dmitri Medvedev of Russia he would have "more flexibility" to negotiate with Putin after the election.

Again, the collusion with Russia is not with Trump but with the Bammy administration (including Clinton).
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page
