Ted Cruz and Others Shame Obama into Doing What He Should have Done Last Week

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Presidential candidate Ted Cruz took to Facebook to slam the Obama Regime, known to despise our nation’s military, for their refusal to honor our five military members who were murdered by a Muslim terrorist in Chattanooga, Tennessee recently.

Breaking with tradition, the regime has stubbornly refused to lower the flag at half-staff, a longstanding custom after events like the horrific terrorist event, to show a nation that is in mourning.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Cruz made note Tuesday morning that while the U.S. Capitol building has lowered its flag in remembrance of the servicemen killed by the Islamic terrorist, the White House…

Meanwhile, Obama Regime propagandist and professional liar Josh Earnest has been unable or unwilling to provide an explanation as to why Obama has not lowered the flag at the White House or ordered the flags at all federal buildings to be lowered.

Many state leaders, who no doubt grew tired of waiting to see if Obama would order all flags at half staff in honor of the Marines and sailor killed by the Islamic Jihadist in Chattanooga, ordered flags at their capitol buildings to be lowered as well.

It was only after this public shaming by Cruz, Congress, and state leaders around the country, that the announcement came that Obama had reversed his decision and ordered flags flown at half-staff.

The decision by the President of the United States regarding whether to lower the flag to show respect for and to honor American servicemen killed on American soil by a Muslim terrorist should not come only after mounting criticism.

The fact that it took public shaming and criticism for Obama to order the flying of the American flag at half-staff is both very disturbing and very telling.
