|Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at the Sunshine Summit on November 13|
Ted Cruz, February 2014:
(Taken from a video on Mr. Cruz' own website.)
"We have welcomed refugees--the tired, huddled masses--for centuries. That's been the history of the United States. We should continue to do so. We have to continue to be vigilant to make sure those coming are not affiliated with terrorists, but we can do that."
Ted Cruz, November 2015:
According to the Washington Post, the Senator from Texas introduced a bill yesterday that would prohibit refugees from any country the State Department has determined is controlled in part by a foreign terrorist organization from entering the United States."
Or maybe his bill is simply the apex of his "Mr. President, come back and insult me to my face" temper tantrum. He's like a ten-year-old who knows he can't compete with the other ten-year-old who just humiliated him in the school yard so he soothes his bruised ego by writing insults on the bathroom wall.
Just the kind of intelligent, measured response we need in a President, right?
