Speaking on Laura Ingraham’s radio talk show, the freshman Senator said Thursday that Barack Obama is “high on his own power” with regard to the president’s announced efforts on gun control, adding that “this is a president who has drunk the Kool-Aid,” as reported by the Weekly Standard.
Cruz levels the volatile charge that Obama is “exploiting the murder of children” to advance his own “extreme” agenda.
“He is feeling right now high on his own power, and he is pushing on every front, on guns,” Cruz said. “And I think it’s really sad to see the president of the United States exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme, anti-gun agenda. I think what the president is proposing and the gun control proposals that are coming from Democrats in the Senate are, number one, unconstitutional, and number two, they don’t work. They’re bad policy.”
Cruz also told Ingraham that he does not believe Obama will be successful in passing gun control legislation and that the political ramifications of pursuing such laws could be bad for Democrats.
In that regard, Cruz may be off target. While it’s unlikely that gun control legislation will pass, Obama still stands to win the public relations battle simply by saying he tried his best, but was thwarted yet again by ‘obstructionist’ Republicans.
