WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Tea Party stalwart Sen. Ted Cruz has tough words for President Barack Obama in a recent interview.
“I think President Obama is the most radical president we’ve ever seen, but I think an awful lot of Republicans fail to stand for principle and contributed to getting us in this mess,” the Republican Texas senator told The Christian Broadcasting Network in a recent interview.
Cruz has already risen through the political ranks despite being a first-term senator. Cruz has taken a stand against Obama on immigration and gun control. The freshman senator also voted against John Kerry as secretary of state.
Cruz told The Christian Broadcasting Network that he is hoping to form a new Republican Party.
“Life, liberty, and property, the fundamental natural rights of man are given to every one of us by God, and the role of government fundamentally is to protect those rights,” Cruz said.
Despite his popularity, Cruz says he doesn’t pay attention to his own media coverage.
“I try to pay very little attention to the media,” Cruz explained. “It is, as you know, a fickle creature. They can say anything today, and tomorrow, it can change dramatically.”
