Earlier this week, Ted Cruz said that if the Iran deal went through, President Obama would be “the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism.” Mitt Romney had some harsh words for that today:
I am opposed to the Iran deal, but @SenTedCruz is way over the line on the Obama terrorism charge. Hurts the cause.
— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) July 30, 2015
During a radio interview with KFYO’s Chad Hasty, Cruz continued to insist the Iran deal is a horrible one and addressed Romney’s tweet.
He said, “One of the reasons Republicans keep getting clobbered is that we have leaders like Mitt Romney or like Jeb Bush who are afraid.”
Cruz insisted that tone doesn’t matter when they have facts on their side, and the reason Romney lost in 2012 was his refusal to use any sort of harsh rhetoric.
