Ted Cruz: Obama Exploited the Newtown Tragedy ‘Within Minutes’


I meant to throw this up yesterday, but it got lost among the 19 other FrontBurner posts we wrote, from nine separate contributors. Did I forget to mention this blog is free? And that subscriptions to the magazine – where you can read even more words from those nine separate contributors – are only $18 a year, or $28 for two years? Yes, I did forget to mention that.

Anyway, newly minted Texas Senator Ted Cruz headed to Meet the Press Sunday, where David Gregory sat him down and talked to him about gun control. It’s a fairly predictable four minutes, especially his attacks on President Obama. Via Slate:

When NBC’s David Gregory asked whether the [NRA ad that references Obama’s daughters] was constructive to the debate in the country, Cruz fired back: “What I don’t think is constructive is what the president is doing right now, which is within minutes of that horrible tragedy in Newtown the president began trying to exploit that tragedy to push a gun control agenda that is designed to appeal to partisans,” he said.
