Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched his toughest attack on Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) foreign policy yet, trying to tie him to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D).
Cruz: "Senator Rubio emphatically supported Hillary Clinton in toppling [Muammar] Qaddafi in Libya. I think that made no sense. ... The terrorist attack that occurred in Benghazi was a direct result of that massive foreign policy blunder."
Cruz also argued against getting involved in the Syrian civil war: "The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. ... If the Obama administration and the Washington neo-cons succeed in toppling [Bashar al-] Assad, Syria will be handed over to radical Islamic terrorists. ISIS will rule Syria." (Bloomberg)
JIMINY CRICKET! Cruz, responding to a voter's question about "making contraception available to women who want to control their own bodies," went off on Democrats for falsely accusing Republicans of being "the condom police."
Cruz: "Hillary Clinton embraces abortion on demand in all circumstances up until the moment of birth. Partial-birth abortion with taxpayer funding, with no notification for parents in any circumstances -- 91% of Americans say that's nuts. ... So what do they do, they try to shift it. The war on women wasn't that, it was contraceptives. Now listen, I have been a conservative my entire life. I have never met anybody, any conservative who wants to ban contraceptives."
