"Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) addressed President Obama directly while speaking to reporters Wednesday, telling him to "come back and insult me to my face."
Cruz was responding to Obama's recent criticism of Republicans suggesting there be a religious test for Syrian refugees seeking entrance to the country, a plan he called "shameful" and "not American" while in Turkey for the Group of 20 summit.
"If you want to insult me, you can do it overseas, you can do it in Turkey, you can do it in foreign countries. But I would encourage you, Mr. President, come back and insult me to my face," Cruz said, staring directly into the camera."
Nothing but a playground bully, but I guess that's what things have come to in this country. And we know that, like bullies everywhere, he says this knowing that Obama would never take him up on it, because he knows damned well that Obama would reduce him to a shrieking monster in about three minutes. But that's how we run the country these days- ignorance and belligerence. And really, that has worked out so well for us, so I guess the Republican party will just keep up the whole thing. What a pack of assholes.
