[VIDEO] Ted Cruz Blasts Obama: You Can't Appease Radical Islamic Terrorists Like Iran

Speaking in South Carolina yesterday, Senator Ted Cruz (who made what amounts to an unofficial announcement on Glenn Beck's show on Friday that he'll run for president) made clear that he, unlike the current administration, does understand that radical Islam poses a significant threat to the United States... and the rest of the world.

"Radical Islamic terrorism is the greatest threat to the United States today," Cruz said. He  went on to explain how evil Al Qaeda and ISIS are, but focused especially on Iran: "The trunk of the poisonous tree" of Islamic terror.

The facts of the matter are these: Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons, it sponsors terrorists worldwide, and actually has an annual holiday called "Death to America Day." This regime isn't only evil, it's powerful on top of that, with its influence reaching far and wide in Syria and Iraq. And what do Obama and Kerry do? They negotiate directly with the crazy Ayatollah and his minions, and even provide them with economic relief.

If Iran goes nuclear it will pose a mortal threat not only to Israel, but to America as well. How can we get that through this administration's thick skull?
