Cruz: World’s ‘Bad Actors’ Know Obama Won’t Stop Them

Thursday on Mark Levin’s syndicated radio show, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, took aim at President Barack Obama and his foreign policy in the wake of Russia’s new presense in war-torn Syria.

Cruz described the situation in the world to be like “Lord of the Flies” and pointed to the lack of limits on aggression of “bad actors” in the world as evidence.

“America has retreated from the world,” Cruz said. “Every bad actor on earth has taken the measure of President Obama and determined that he is no credible threat whatsoever. For the next 16 months, we are in a Hobbesian state of nature, it is like ‘Lord of the Flies,’ where the only limit on misconduct and aggression of bad actors is the limit of their own strength.
