Cruz: Romney, Jeb ‘Afraid’ to Speak the Truth

Thursday on Lubbock, TX’s “Chad Hasty Show” on KYFO, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Mitt Romney’s criticisms that Cruz’s rhetoric was “is way over the line,” when he said President Barack Obama would be “the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism,” if the Iran nuke deal goes through.

Cruz said, “When you send billions of dollars to jihadists trying to kill Americans, you bear responsibility for the murder that they carry out with the money you have given them. One of the reasons Republicans keep getting clobbered is we have leaders like Mitt Romney and like Jeb Bush who are afraid to say that. Now it’s not a question of rhetoric. So Mitt Romney’s tweet today said gosh this rhetoric is not helpful. John Adams famously said facts are stubborn things. Describing the actual facts is not using rhetoric — it is called speaking the truth.”
