Ted Cruz, future president wannabe, sure does have a bad case of Benghazi Tourette Syndrome. On Sunday, he told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos that one of the main reasons to oppose military action against Syria is the supposed Benghazi scandal.
The cynicism in me says that Cruz knows that he is likely to face Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election should he end up as the GOP candidate, and since Hillary was Secretary of State at the time and therefore involved in this propped up supposed scandal. His only hope to beat her is to say, “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi” over and over again. The equivalent of throwing as much mud at a wall as possible and hoping some of it sticks.
Here is the entire Cruz diatribe:
One of the problems with all of this focus on Syria is its missing the ball from what we should be focused on, which is the grave threat from radical Islamic terrorism. I mean, just this week is the one-year anniversary of the attack on Benghazi. In Benghazi, four Americans were killed, including the the first ambassador since 1979
When it happened, the president promised to hunt the wrongdoers down, and yet a few months later, the issue has disappeared. You don’t hear the president mention Benghazi. Now it’s a phony scandal. We ought to be defending U.S. national security and going after radical Islamic terrorists
We’re wondering if Cruz and the rest of the Benghazi Tourette Syndrome-afflicted Republicans were calling for investigations when, under George Bush, consulates or embassies were attacked in Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Yemen?
