Ouch. Ted Cruz unleashed a number of zingers during his speech yesterday at the Value Voters Summit, an event produced by the Family Research Council.
As the Daily Morning News reports, “The crowd was on its feet for much of his 20-minute speech, as he delivered one line after another than many, if not most, had heard before – red meat lines skewering Hillary Clinton and Democrats, vowing to abolish the IRS and Education Department, end common core, protect Israel, shred Obamacare and reverse all manner of Obama-era policies.
But the best one may have been when Cruz noted that Obama was meeting today at the White House with China’s President Xi Jingping.
“Media all across the world are reporting on this historic meeting of the world’s most powerful communist – and the president of China,” Cruz quipped, drawing laughter.”
The mainstream media has been somewhat quiet, all things considered, on this latest slight against the president. I find it curious that calling someone a communist doesn’t cause more outrage, considering nearly 100 million people have been killed in the name of communism. But clearly, the left-leaning media doesn’t see all that much wrong with the tenets of communism — and the little inconvenient truths about the number of people murdered or the fact that communism has basically failed wherever it has been tried mean little.
Anyway, touché to Senator Cruz for calling a spade a spade. OOPS!!! Can’t say THAT, can I?[Note: This article was written by Michele Hickford]
