A Conversation with Ted Cruz


Recommended Posts

a_conversatrion_with_ted_cruz.htmlAmerican Thinker:

Just last week President Obama gave a special address via a webcast to the members of the Jewish Federation. His purpose was to try to convince American Jews on the merits of the Iranian nuclear deal. Unfortunately, his statements lacked substance and the questions asked were softball in nature, never addressing any of the concerns. Compare that with the interview that Senator Ted Cruz gave to American Thinker on the dangers of this deal.


Even though President Obama said to check the facts, he offered none. He told his mostly Jewish audience that Iran “is antagonistic to the U.S., it is anti-Semitic, it has denied the Holocaust, and has called for the destruction of Israel. It is an unsavory regime.” Yet, he espouses that this deal accomplishes his goal of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb and preserving the U.S. bond with Israel. Willing to ignore Iranian rhetoric, the president is also ignoring the possibility of an existential danger. As former Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren noted, “Remember that American Jewry once had a chance to save six million Jews. And there are six million today in Israel. This is about our survival as a people. It’s about our children and grandchildren.”


Senator Cruz agrees with the ambassador: “The U.S. and Israel are joined by the Iranian rhetoric that calls Israel ‘The Little Satan,’ and the U.S. ‘The Big Satan.’ Their intention is to murder both of us. We face an enemy that hates us and has been very explicit that they intend to do everything they can to kill Israelis and us. These enemies are driven by a radical theological view that glorifies death and suicide. This deal harkens back to the Munich Deal of 1938, allowing homicidal maniacs to acquire weapons of mass murder. ”Scissors-32x32.png

Ted Cruz On Hewitt Show






HH: So pleased to begin this hour with United States Senator Ted Cruz. Senator Cruz, welcome back, it’s always a pleasure to talk to you.


TC: Hugh, it is always great to be with you. Thank you for having me.


HH: Can I assume that John Boehner’s not going to be your running mate?


TC: (laughing) I think that is a fair inference. I appreciate, by the way, you asking folks about that comment. That was very kind of you.


HH: Well, I don’t understand it, and I’d like to expand and not limit it to the Speaker. But what in the world is the upside of any Republican slagging another Republican, especially when the other Republican is running for president and might be our nominee?


TC: Well, look, unfortunately, I think an awful lot of folks in politics, they get personal and they engage in insults and ad hominem attacks. And there’s far too much of that that goes on. And my approach consistently is that I don’t reciprocate. The Speaker is entitled to express whatever views he likes, but I’m not going to respond in kind. And I think the American people are not remotely interested in a bunch of politicians in Washington bickering like schoolyard children. I think what they’re looking for is serious leaders who will address and provide real solutions to the very real problems we’re facing right now.
