During a speech in New Hampshire on Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told the audience, which included a little girl, that her “world is on fire.” That, naturally, terrified the girl.
The Texas Republican was speaking at an event sponsored by the Strafford County Republican Committee. The Tea Party hero warned that there was an “urgency to politics today that is unlike anything any of us have ever seen.”
Ever. And we’ve seen lots of stuff.
“It is now or never,” he declared. “I don’t think we’ve reached the point of no return yet. But we’re close. We are close! And I believe if we go four or eight more years on this same path, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world.”
“Millions of Americans are realizing this isn’t working,” Cruz continued to say as if he couldn’t stop himself. “The Obama economy is a disaster. Obamacare is a train wreck.”
“And the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind — the whole world is on fire.”
Raw Story reports:
Tampa Bay Times political editor Adam Smith noted on Twitter that Cruz had to pause his speech to respond to a little girl in the audience who was young enough to be carried by her mother.
“Ted Cruz literally just scared a little girl in NH,” Smith tweeted. “‘The world is on fire?!’ she asked, repeating his line on Obama-Clinton foreign policy.”
“The world is on fire,” Cruz said while turning to face the girl and her mother. “Yes! Your world is on fire!”
“But you know what?” Cruz asked while trying to sooth the girl he terrified. “Your mommy is here and everyone is here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better.”

I picture Cruz standing on the streets with a ‘The End Is Nigh’ sign in his hands. Dad will be by his side blaming the gays.
And the world will go on, just as it always has.
The once-apocalyptic economy under Obama’s predecessor is healing. Gas prices are down. Unemployment is down.
That’s why Ted Cruz’s world is on fire. When talking to the little girl, he should have done a reading of Green Eggs and Ham instead.
