This is why they fear Ted Cruz because he won’t let them defeat him:
POLITICO – Sen. Ted Cruz is shrugging off criticism of his comments that President Barack Obama stands in the way of immigration reform and welcoming the charge that he’s “Obamaphobic.”
Responding to Cruz’s comments on ABC News that Obama is “the biggest obstacle” to passing immigration reform, one of the Gang of Eight, Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), said the Texas Republican’s assessment was wrong.
“I think he has Obamaphobia. The reality is that it is the Gang of Eight that came together, four Democrats and four Republicans, and said we need a path to citizenship,” Menendez said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.”
When Cruz heard what Menendez said last night, he tweeted the following:
If supporting real immigration reform, not path to citizenship is “Obamaphobia,” guilty as charged. RT if you’re a fellow “Obamaphobic!”
