An Impassioned Cruz Fires Back at Obama: He’s ‘More Mad at Me’ than at ISIS

In the aftermath of the Brussels terrorist attack, President Obama is showing more anger toward Ted Cruz — who suggested patrolling areas where Islamic radicalization is occurring — than at the terrorists themselves, the Republican candidate said this morning. Speaking Thursday in Buenos Aires, Obama likened Cruz’s proposal to the totalitarianism Cruz’s father fled in Cuba.

“You know, it’s rich seeing Obama attacking me when he just got back from going to a baseball game with the Castros, celebrating and toasting a communist dictator who tortures and murders his citizens, who oppresses them and who is rabidly anti-American and who spreads terrorism throughout Latin America,” Cruz said in an appearance on Fox News Sunday. “As the president noted, yes, my father was in prison and tortured in Cuba. So was my aunt. She was imprisoned and tortured by Castro’s goons in Cuba.”

“And yet, what President Obama has done, what Hillary Clinton has done, what John Kerry has done is sent billions of dollars to the enemies of America, billions of dollars to the Castros, that they will use to increase repression, increase spreading terrorism throughout Latin America, and over $100 billion to the Ayatollah Khamenei in Iran,” he continued. ”That money will be used to fund Islamic terrorists that are coming to murder Americans, murder Europeans, to murder Israelis. And it will be used to fund their nuclear program and their ICBM program, which is designed to murder millions of Americans.”

“You notice Obama and Hillary seemed more mad at me than they are at ISIS, than they are the terrorists who are murdering,” Cruz told guest host Shannon Bream.

How Seinfeld Mastered the Comedy Domain

I can’t say whether Larry Charles, Larry David, Alec Berg, Spike Feresten, and the rest of the brilliant writers of Seinfeld were students of F. Scott Fitzgerald, but they might as well have been.
