Sen. Cruz offers clear advice for the president

It’s time for President Obama to be honest with the American people, Sen. Ted Cruz said Sunday.

In a Fox News interview with Eric Bolling, Cruz, R-Texas,  said the consecutive scandals stemming from the IRS targeting conservative groups and changing administration stories over the attack on the Benghazi consulate mean “people’s trust in the integrity of government has been undermined.”

Taken together, the IRS activities, in which the agency delayed or denied tax-exempt status for citizens groups opposed to the president’s re-election leading up to the 2012, and the Justice Department’s investigations of reporters from the Associated Press and Fox News betray a “pattern” of “willingness to use the machinery of government to target political enemies,” Cruz said.

And the shifting stories from administration officials, the Benghazi “talking points” that turned out to be heavily edited by the State Department to the IRS scandal haven’t helped, Cruz said.

When Bolling asked Cruz if he had any advice for the president, Cruz’s response was simple:

“I would tell the president to tell the truth,” he said.
