After Obama Attacks Cruz During State Of the Union, Cruz Responds With THIS

If you're politically conservative and were actually watching President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address last night, it's probably a good thing you weren't getting your blood pressure tested at the same time. The commander-in-chief repeatedly mocked, ridiculed, and attacked Republicans and conservatives — especially GOP presidential candidates.

According to The Blaze, Obama took a none-too-subtle shot at Ted Cruz as well when he referenced the Texas senator's tough stance on ridding the world of the threat of ISIS.

Obama, who continues to refer to the Islamic State as ISIL, said that they could not be defeated merely with, “tough talk or calls to carpet bomb civilians. That may work as a TV sound bite, but it doesn’t pass muster on the world stage.”

Cruz refused to attend the speech but gave his response to the jab in an interview with Lest Holt of "NBC Nightly News."

Cruz started out by saying Obama's State of the Union speech was more like a "state of denial," then said "I will apologize to nobody for my commitment to kill the terrorists. And in this speech President Obama once again refused to even say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ — much less demonstrate any clarity, any vision, any plan to destroy them. He diminished the threat of ISIS. I mean, let’s just think about it. In this speech, he didn’t say a word about the Paris attacks, he didn’t say a word about San Bernardino, he didn’t say a word about the Philadelphia police officer who was shot 13 times by a terrorist pledging allegiance to ISIS. And I think the American people are tired of having a president who will not even acknowledge the evil that we are facing — much less do anything serious to stop it.”
