Ted Cruz responded President Obama’s accurate criticism of their fear filled racism by throwing a tantrum and challenging the President Of The United States to a debate
Last night, President Obama called out Republicans for being weak and scared. The President said, “I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric coming out of here in the course of this debate. ISIL seeks to exploit the idea that there’s war between Islam and the West, and when you start seeing individuals in positions of responsibility suggesting Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are in a war-torn land that feeds the ISIL narrative. It’s counter productive. And it needs to stop. And I would add these are the same folks who suggested they’re so tough that just talk to Putin or staring down ISIL (will work) .. but they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. First they were worried the press was too tough on them in the debates; now they’re worried about 3-year old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.”
Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz tried to respond with tough talk that sounded like a weak and whiny tantrum:
Well, I will say that it’s fairly remarkable that President Obama has now chosen two days in a row to attack me personally. He just called me offensive the day before. He called me un-American. I think it’s really quite rich that he chose to make both of those insults while on foreign soil. While he was attacking me, and attacking everyone else in this country who believe that we should not be bringing in tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees that the Obama administration can not vet to determine whether or not they are ISIS terrorists. I gotta tell ya it is utterly unbefitting of the president to be engaging in those kinds of personal insults and attacks.
He talked about how he was belittling the Republican field as scared. Well let me suggest something: Mr. President, if you want to insult me, you can do it overseas, you can do it in Turkey, you can do it in foreign countries. But I would encourage you, Mr. President, come back and insult me to my face.
Just to make certain that everyone understood that his intention is to whip up fear of Syrian refugees to boost his presidential campaign, Sen. Cruz challenged President Obama to a debate on the refugee program.
Ted Cruz was lying about President Obama attacking him personally. Obama never mentioned Cruz by name. However, Cruz did twist Obama’s general criticism that only letting Christian refugees in was an un-American thing to do into a personal attack.
President Obama has better things to do than to waste his time mentioning Ted Cruz by name. The “debate” that Sen. Cruz wants is never going to happen. The difference between running for president, and actually being the leader of the free world is that Obama spends his time trying to defeat ISIS as opposed to throwing tantrums to revive a stalled presidential campaign.
Ted Cruz is a joke but his racist attempts to exploit the Paris terrorist attack for personal political gain is a disgrace.
