Hillary Clinton Sends Cruz Back To The Kiddie Table By Calling Out His Idiocy

Hillary Clinton Takes Down Ted Cruz
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took Cruz to school on ABC’s This Week, and in the process exposed the Republican’s tough talk as empty, brainless, idiocy.
Transcript via ABC’s This Week:
STEPHANOPOULOS: Some of your potential rivals on the Republican side say we have to do more overseas as well. Cruz says we have to carpet bomb ISIS.

CLINTON: Well, that’s an easy thing to say, you know. He’s never had any responsibility for trying to figure out who the bad guys are and who innocent civilians are. Clearly we have to have a much more robust air campaign against ISIL targets, against the oil infrastructure, against their leadership. I think you’ll hear that from the president. And part of what I have been arguing for, for quite some time now, is that we’ve got to do a better job of getting back the Sunnis on the ground, along with the Kurds, who can be the fighters who will actually take back territory with air cover and with targeted attacks on ISIL infrastructure. We still are going to have to have people fighting.
An example of what Clinton was referring can found in Cruz’s latest campaign ad that is running in Iowa.
In the ad, Cruz promised to rebuild the military, kill the terrorists, and never apologize for America.
What the ad doesn’t say is what Clinton pointed out. How is Cruz going to know who the terrorists are? Is he planning on killing everyone?
Cruz has taken the Trump model of empty tough talk and put it on steroids.
Republicans are trying to turn their opponent’s biggest strength into a weakness by making the presidential election about foreign policy. By following this path, they are playing into Hillary Clinton’s biggest strength. The Republican candidates have never worked in the White House. Cruz has no idea how to tell a “good guy” from a “bad guy.”
If times are really as dangerous as Republicans suggest, wouldn’t it be wise to have a president who has foreign policy experience? Clinton subtly contrasted her knowledge and experience with Cruz’s rhetoric to paint a picture of a candidate who has no idea what he is talking about.
Hillary Clinton made Cruz look clueless, and showed why the Republican presidential pretenders aren’t ready for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
