further proof that being a product of the elite higher education system doesn't mean you have one iota of wit, intellect or grace.

This man is sooo awkward. I mean, he's not Romney awkward, but he really does not have the charisma to capture the attention of a nation without these bizarre stunts of his.

It's like, if Richard Nixon and Michael Dukakis had a baby, he would be Ted Cruz.

he simply doesn't care who he offends. he doesn't have to - according to his father Ted is anointed by God to take over all of the country.

I'm getting tired of hearing about this guy but I am glad this has hit the news. Unbelievable hate. For a guy that is supposed to be brilliant, he sure acts stupid most of the time.

Whatever my personal feeling are about Ted Cruz is irrelivent. The observations about Nigerians is well warranted. Every Muslim I have known hasn't tried to push fanaticism down my throat (allthough I get numbers of Christians doing that) , however ever Nigerian I have come across always has tried to sell me some opportunity. I've engaged a few of them , strung them along and baited them - just to waste their time and get them to spend some of their money- just for fun. These are not decent people- they become violent and threatening very easily when you turn the same scam on them as the one they try to pull over on you.

I would seriously ask yourself why this doesn't offend you.

“Jokes about Nigerian scammers, you know, I wonder how much off the cuff that really was, and how calculated it was to appeal to Sen. Cruz’s base, many of whom believe that the president is from Africa,” Matt Cartwright

BINGO!!!!!!

The only thing worse than a racist in office is someone who is in office and claims to not be a racist, but makes a "joke" to pander to said racists. If somebody would have made a Mau-Mau reference to the Naval yard shooting, I wonder what his thoughts would have been about that.

I am no Ted Cruz fan....but I see what he was trying to "joke" about. It was a lame attempt to put those two things together. We all know that there are some Nigerians who prey on the gullible through their Web site scams--Sites are always disconnected or put out of business.
So This is what Cruz was trying to "joke" about, comparing that to the initial HealthCare site that was not in full 100% operating mode at the outset.
So, this joke gets a pass from me. Yuk, yuk. Next.

He should avoid joking. He doesn't have the delivery or the timing.

An ethnic joke from a Canadian-born Cuban preacher's son who joined the Seven Mountains cult, and became a Manchurian candidate programmed to topple the US Government, in order to get the throne ready for Republican President Jesus. An epic scam. Glass houses?

Sorry -- no fan of Cruz, but the Nigerian Prince email scam dates back to the '90s. I think it's the only 'export' from Nigeria anyone is aware of. Let's get to the real issue of this story?

There's a 'Nigerian Community' in Texas?
12:44 PM on 10/25/2013
yep--mostly due to oil and gas epi-center being located in Houston.

"Have you all noticed, you know the Nigerian email scammers?" Cruz asked the crowd at a Houston rally on Monday, KTRK Houston reported. "They've been a lot less active lately, because they've all been hired to run the Obamacare websites."

This man is not fit to be in office. he is a disgrace and a racist.

He hangs out with Palin and his own conservative hometown newspaper just withdrew its enorsement. So I think he has bigger problems than the Texas Nigerian community.

Cruz is a racist straight up, no question.

I wonder what he thinks of Mexicans and other Hispanics. I am convinced that Justice Thomas has issues related to being black. I wonder how Cruz feels about being half-Hispanic. People who are ashamed of who they are can be dangerous.

If only he didn't represent Texas, there might be hope . In case you haven't noticed, Texas elected officials are getting more and more bizarre. All they seem to have to do is obstruct and then come back to Texas periodically to remind us that Texans are exceptional, the real Americans, and the only true "patriots" which is why we need to secede from the Union. Yep, we love the principles of democracy too much to put up with them.
