Texas Senator and 2016 presidential contender Ted Cruz is seemingly undeterred by anything. He has been attacked by Democrats, attacked by Republicans, attacked by media and the president of the United States. Sen. Cruz, in every instance, has shown a backbone that is conspicuously rare in modern politics and on Wednesday, as reporters questioned Cruz about President Obama’s response to resistance to the importation of Syrians, he issued a strong ultimatum: “Come back and insult me to my face.”
Obama demonized opponents of the relocation and called them “un-American” and claimed that their positions serve as a “recruitment tool” for ISIS.
Of course, as politics in the Middle East are dominated by displays of power, Obama’s weakness likely serves as the real “recruitment tool” to strengthen ISIS’ forces.
