Cruz: Obama Should Be Held to Same Standard as Kim Davis When Ignoring Laws


Ted Cruz says that if Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who has taken a stand against gay marriage, deserves to be punished for not following the law, then the President deserves to be punished as well for all of the times he’s ignored laws.

Davis was jailed for taking a religious stand, repeatedly refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses in opposition to the law ruled on by the Supreme Court earlier this year.

She has been ridiculed by liberals, despite being a Democrat, and frequently told to resign.

Cruz wants to know where the calls are for Obama to resign for essentially doing the same thing. Watch …


via Ted Cruz:

“I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to choose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion.

“In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts rightly observed that the Court’s marriage opinion has nothing to do with the Constitution. Justice Scalia observed that the Court’s opinion was so contrary to law that state and local officials would choose to defy it.

“For every politician — Democrat and Republican — who is tut-tutting that Davis must resign, they are defending a hypocritical standard. Where is the call for the mayor of San Francisco to resign for creating a sanctuary city — resulting in the murder of American citizens by criminal illegal aliens welcomed by his lawlessness?

“Where is the call for President Obama to resign for ignoring and defying our immigration laws, our welfare reform laws, and even his own Obamacare?

“When the mayor of San Francisco and President Obama resign, then we can talk about Kim Davis.

And that’s just to name a few. Here’s a handy-dandy list of ten times Obama and his administration have broken the law.
