Cruz Kicks Off Debate With Massive Shot At Obama, Makes Powerful Vow To America

Ted-Cruz 5Thursday’s GOP economy-focused presidential primary debate, hosted by the Fox Business Network, sought to get Sen. Ted Cruz’s take on Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address. Specifically, moderator Maria Bartiromo wanted to know what differences Cruz had with the optimistic economic picture Obama painted during Tuesday’s speech.

Saving his direct answer for the latter portion of his response, however, Cruz used the opportunity to address a pressing issue Obama’s address completely ignored.

“Today,” he said, “many of us picked up our newspapers and we were horrified to see the sight of 10 American sailors on their knees with their hands on their heads.”

Referring to the ships seized by Iranian forces earlier this week, Cruz lamented that Obama “didn’t so much as mention” their plight during his speech even as nine men and one woman remained in custody. He also noted that the act came just days before a deal is set to go into effect that would lift sanctions with Iran, releasing more than $100 billion.

Though the situation is “heartbreaking,” Cruz noted that “the good news is the next commander in chief is standing on this stage.”

If he is successful in his White House bid, the Texas legislator gave his word that “no serviceman or service woman will be forced to be on their knees.”

Any nation that tries, he added, will feel the “full force and fury of the United States of America.”
