In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said President Obama is not interested in protecting the United States. “I recognize that Barack Obama does not wish to defend this country,” Cruz said on “Fox and Friends” “He may have been tired of war, but our enemies are not tired of killing us. And they’re getting stronger.”
Cruz continued to call for the United States not to take in Syrian refugees because he says intelligence agencies cannot determine which of them may be aligned with the Islamic State, the militant group that has claimed credit for the Paris attacks. “President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s idea that we should bring tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees to America is nothing less than lunacy,” he said.
Cruz said that Muslim refugees should “be resettled in the Middle East, in majority Muslim countries.” But he said Christians should be provided a safe haven in the United States because he said they are subject to “genocide.” Cruz said Obama does not want to do this and has “antipathy” toward Christians.
Hard to argue with any of that, based simply on Obama’s actions. But the Left, of course, words speak louder than actions, and that’s all they want to hear. Look for Cruz to keep pushing this line of attack even harder as we head into the holidays, for maximum appeal to primary voters in Iowa and New Hampshire.
