Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says that one of the best reasons to oppose a U.S. military strike on Syria is that Congress should STILL be focusing on the so-called scandal over last year’s terrorist attacks in Benghazi. (They may as well concentrate on repealing Obamacare.)
ABC News host George Stephanopoulos asked the Texas Republican in an interview on Sunday if President Obama could be impeached if he took military action against Syria for the use of chemical weapons even if Congress refused to authorize a strike. “It would be contrary to the Constitution,” Cruz warned. “And listen, this is not the time for politics. This is a grave and serious moment. I would like to support our commander-in-chief. I would like to see our commander-in-chief focused on protecting U.S. national security.”
But Cruz wasn’t just talking about the debate on Syria. He said it meant that Congress was not spending enough time going after the Obama administration for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. “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.”
I have to say, they find some pretty clever ways of working these so called scandals into almost every interview they do.
