Senator Ted Cruz: Obama trying to tear us apart with Oregon Shooting Comments
“It’s worth remembering he is ideological and he’s a radical,” Sen. Ted Cruz
As Reported By The Hill:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is criticizing President Obama for his comments about a mass shooting at a community college in Oregon that left 9 dead.
“Unfortunately that is the approach with President Obama on every issue, is that he seeks to tear us apart, he seeks to politicize it and it’s worth remembering he is ideological and he’s a radical,” Cruz said on “The Mark Levin Show,” as first reported by Buzzfeed News.
“You know, as his former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel said, ‘you never let a good crisis go to waste,’ and that is sadly his approach.
The GOP presidential hopeful said the president is using the shooting as a political ploy to take guns away from Americans.
“We ought to do everything we can, for example, to be prosecuting the felons and fugitives who are trying to illegally buy guns,” Cruz said. “The Obama administration doesn’t do that. Instead, they try to use these tragedies as an excuse to come after the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens.
“It’s unconstitutional, it’s cynical, and it’s wrong,” he added.
