Ted Cruz Doesn’t Mince Words With This Response To Obama’s SOTU Jab

Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz responded Tuesday night to an apparent jab President Barack Obama took at him in his final State of the Union address. In his speech, Obama said the answer to defeating the Islamic State would not merely be “tough talk or calls to carpet bomb civilians. That may work as a TV sound bite, but it doesn’t pass muster on the world stage.” The reference to carpet bombing appeared to be a slight jab at Cruz. The Texas senator had previously attracted attention for saying at campaign events he would “utterly destroy” the Islamic State and “carpet bomb them into oblivion.” After the president’s address, “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lest Holt asked Cruz — who did not attend the speech — for his response. “Well listen, I will apologize to nobody for my commitment to kill the terrorists,” Cruz replied. “And in this speech President Obama once again refused to even say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ — much less demonstrate any clarity, any vision, any plan to destroy them.”
