Sen. Ted Cruz is shifting direction with the target of his attack ads in Iowa.
A new ad released Friday focuses on fellow presidential candidate Marco Rubio and calls him “the Republican Obama.”
“The Republican Obama who championed Obama’s amnesty and led the ‘Gang of Eight,” the ad said of the Florida senator.
It shared a clip of Rubio purportedly saying he was in favor of a mandated carbon tax.
Tax hikes, amnesty, the Republican Obama — that’s Marco Rubio,” the ad said in conclusion.
But the clip doesn’t tell the entire story.
In the actual interview Rubio did in 2010 he said he was not in favor of the implementation of the tax.
“I’m in favor of giving the Department of Environmental Protection a mandate that they go out and design a cap-and-trade or a carbon-tax program and bring it back to the legislature for ratification sometime in the next two years,” he said in the full interview.
“I’m in favor of them designing it — I’m not in favor of them designing it and implementing it,” he continued.
The new Cruz add had social media abuzz.

Well, I don’t want amnesty, and I don’t like cap-and-trade at all. Sorry, Marco Obama

@NYTnickc @KemberleeKaye @tedcruz In its way, that’s as bad as what Trump is doing. Maybe worse.

@NYTnickc @StephMcMurphy @tedcruz As a Cruz fan, I don’t think this is true. Trump = Obama – his fans don’t dig into his past either.

@NYTnickc @SabrinaSiddiqui @tedcruz That’s a pretty big stick to bring out just for Iowa. They must be really worried 2 use that bullet.

@NYTnickc @tedcruz Not a good argument by Cruz; don’t like Obama though he did win two elections, I have no problem w/Rubio doing that

@NYTnickc Actually, Rubio has a lot more experience than Obama had. Cruz is closer to Obama than Rubio is. @alexburnsNYT

@VictorB123 @NYTnickc 2 true statements:
– Cruz has less elected experience than Rubio & Obama
– Rubio & Obama political resumes are similar
