Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) discounted Hillary Clinton as presidential material on This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, arguing that the response to Benghazi contained in an excerpt from her forthcoming book was nothing but political spin.
“The sad thing with Secretary Clinton, is it seems to be all politics, all the time,” Cruz said. “From what we know about this book chapter, it’s pure political spin, and she’s more focused on blaming the so-called vast right wing conspiracy than on the terrorists.”
Stephanopoulos asked Cruz for the “thirty second case” against a Clinton presidency. “Her policies, domestically and internationally, haven’t worked,” Cruz replied. “The Obama/Clinton foreign policy is a disaster. Every region of the world has gotten worse. America has weakened. Our enemies have been strengthened. We’re in the middle of cutting a deal right now with Iran that I fear is repeating the mistakes of the Clinton administration in 1990s.”
