Cruz: Obama Administration Does Not Respect the Bill of Rights

On Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Fox News that Attorney General Eric Holder should resign and that the Obama Administration does not respect the Bill of Rights.

Asked by Megyn Kelly whether Holder should resign, Cruz said, “Yes, absolutely.”

Cruz said he believes the Obama Administration has demonstrated “an unfortunate willingness to use the machinery of the federal government as a tool, a partisan tool, to punish those perceived as your political enemies.”

“Unfortunately, I think it’s part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights,” Cruz added. “Not respecting the First Amendment, not respecting the Second Amendment, not respecting our Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights regarding drone strikes, regarding the IRS.”

Democratic strategist James Carville caused a stir earlier this month when he praised Cruz as being “the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years. I further think that he’s going to run for president and he is going to create something… he is going to be something to watch.”

Shortly thereafter, Democrats unleashed an onslaught of attacks against the Texas senator.
