Ted Cruz Challenges President Obama to 'Come Back and Insult Me to My Face'

Source: ABC News

A fired-up Sen. Ted Cruz this morning challenged President Obama to a debate over Syrian refugees, lashing out at Obama over his Tuesday comments in the Philippines.

"I want to encourage you, Mr. President, come back and insult me to my face," Cruz said today. "Letís have a debate on Syrian refugees right now. We can do it anywhere you want. I prefer it in the United States and not overseas where youíre making insults. Itís easy to toss a cheap insult when no one can respond, but letís have a debate.

"I got to tell you, it is utterly unbefitting of the president to be engaging in those kind of personal insults and attacks," he continued.

The Texas Republican and presidential candidate appeared outside the Capitol Hill Club with recent supporter Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who also called Obama's comments "more than a little rich."

Is this a thinly veiled threat by Cruz?

114. But butbut he is supposed to be a king when Jesus returns to earth

check out what his father's church preaches about the revelation and the return of the earth and the Seven Pillars and you will recognize this hypocritic self-centered acorn never fell far from the fanatic and lunatic father tree. This hypocrisy is not to be criticized in his mind and is based on his religous belief in his own destiny and superiority over common men as taught by his father. Dominionists are true crazies and there are lots of them here in Ohio with a big church in Middletown.

He didn't actually say he would hit him. He could tell the SS "Oh, I wanted him to tell it to my face so we can debate it personally" and that would be it. Lack of proof.

By the GOP since the day the man took the oath of office. And what about their secret meeting to devise a scheme to hamstring the President no matter what he proposed. So it was ok to insult him and belittle him but now that President Obama has gotten bolder suddenly it is "not fitting", eh, Teddy? Boo hoo...cry me a river.

They can always hit back on Fox Noise or National Hate Radio by trying to be meaner, but laughter is a difficult target to shoot back at. They have a hard time retaliating when the answer to "what's so funny?" is: "YOU are!"

looks like old Joe McCarthy and Phyllis never mind that his own Daddy is as far out there as it is possible to be.

Raffi Cruz has always been an attention whore. But he's not very good at it and can't even get the attention of his whole party when in the Senate. He can't get the attention of the national party, look at where he's polling against Trump and Carson.

So he's yapping like a little dog at the President in a desperate attempt to get attention and relevancy.

Its pathetic.

It's really the same page in the playbook upon which his whole campaign is based. Strike that, his whole political career, including the federal government shut-down: Provoke a response and then bring the powerful down to your level.

This most recent attempt to get attention should die in the next news cycle.
