Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz called out President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over their public comments this week in the wake of the Paris massacre.
After Obama publicly criticized Republicans (though not the dozens of Democrats who have joined them) for seeking to temporarily block importation of Syrian refugees Cruz said, “Instead of engaging in political warfare, how about the president do his job as commander-in-chief?
“He seems more upset that Republicans are calling for protecting this country than he is that ISIS terrorists murdered 129 people in Paris. … And the president should be protecting this nation, not insulting you and me and millions of Americans, calling us un-American, because we want to defend this nation and we want to keep our children safe.”
Kerry, who earlier this week gave an interview in which he saw a “rationale” to the Charlie Hebdo murders, also came into Cruz’s sights, along with Hillary Clinton for good measure.
“Look,” he said, “John Kerry’s statement is shameful. He should resign. I’ve called on John Kerry to resign, multiple times. Both John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, have all served as apologists for radical Islamic terrorists.”
Once again, the Cruz Missile was on target.
Obama has been complaining about “religious tests” that Republicans supposedly want for immigration, just days after Islamic terrorists killed 129 people in an act of war. Given that French officials have now acknowledged that “some” of the terrorists sneaked into Europe with the recent waves of so-called refugees from Syria, it’s plainly foolish to continue to allow Syrian refugees, “vetted” or otherwise, to just waltz into this country.
Although to be fair, French President Francois Hollande seems to be just as much an idiot as Obama because after his initial war talk and shutting the borders, he has now publicly said that France will continue to take in refugees. His explanation was something about not letting terrorists make us compromise our values and tell us what to do — as if the terrorists killed their victims in order to stop Muslim immigration.
There must be a lot of money behind this “refugee” business.

Excuse me. Got a frog in my throat, just all of a sudden.
Kerry, who by the way served in Vietnam, has likewise dusted off his congenital idiot credentials in recent days.
“There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo,” he said, “and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, ‘OK, they’re really angry because of this and that.’
“This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people. It was to attack everything that we do stand for. That’s not an exaggeration.”
No, John, no it is not an exaggeration. Here’s a cookie.
The “this and that” Muslim terrorists are always angry about, for those who may not have noticed, is that we are not Muslim sheep under their control.
Not that this all has anything to do with Islam.
(Cough) georgesoros (cough).
There’s that cough again. Not sure where that’s coming from.
At any rate, the Cruzer was doing what he does, talking sense, and he called for reform to the visa waiver system and legislation to strip citizenship from any American who joins ISIS. It’s stuff that reasonable people, and even some Democrats, can get behind.
On “Hannity” he got more into the discussion of the White House’s Islamic apology campaign.
“Now, what does an apologist mean?” he asked rhetorically. “An apologist is someone who gives rationalization, someone who gives justifications, like what John Kerry was doing right there. And you know, I remember back to the National Prayer Breakfast that I attended, President Obama spoke there. It was the day after ISIS had lit a Jordanian pilot on fire. And President Obama gave an astonishing speech where he said, yes, ISIS has done some bad things, but you know what, Jews and Christians have done bad things, too, and he invoked the Crusades and the Inquisition, which, last I checked, ended hundreds and hundreds of years ago. And I don’t think it’s asking too much to ask the president to stay in the current millennium.”
