Cruz: Obama Is ‘an Unmitigated Socialist Who Won’t Stand up and Defend’ the U.S.


Thursday at the Republican Jewish Coalition during the question and answer segment, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called President Barack Obama “a bad president.”

When asked about the similarity of being a one term Senator without foreign policy experience Cruz said, “When the media asks ‘gosh aren’t you like Barack Obama?’ My reaction to reporters is ‘I thought you thought that was a good thing.’ Last I checked he won two presidential elections. And listen, Barack Obama is not a bad president because he was a senator, Barack Obama is a bad president because he’s an unmitigated socialist who won’t stand up and defend the Untied States of America.”
