Ted Cruz: Obama Is Afraid Of "Real Journalists" Like Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck, Levin

"Have you ever seen Barack Obama sit down and be interviewed by Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity, or Glenn Beck, or Mark Levin? Barack Obama is terrified of questions from real journalists who actually would press him."

In response to President Obama's mocking of Republicans over their reaction to the CNBC debate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said on Wednesday that the president cowers from interviews with "real journalists" on conservative talk radio.

Earlier this week, Obama said of Republicans complaining about the CNBC debate, "It turns out they can't handle a bunch of CNBC moderators at the debate. Let me tell you, if you can't handle those guys, then I don't think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you."

"It's not surprising that President Obama is taking cheap shots," Cruz said on WTMJ, calling the president the "worst negotiator in the history of the world for the United States of America."

The Texas senator cited President Obama's Iran deal and rising tensions with Russia as proof Obama was a weak negotiator.

"You just give them everything they want," Cruz stated.

Cruz said the president was a hypocrite and afraid of being interview by what he-called "real journalists," citing several of conservative radios biggest names.

"Everyone of us goes on lefty journalist shows all day long," added Cruz. "I go on MSNBC. I have liberal journalists take shots at me all day long. Have you ever seen Barack Obama sit down and be interviewed by Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity, or Glenn Beck, or Mark Levin? Barack Obama is terrified of questions from real journalists who actually would press him. He likes to be surrounded by his fawning accolades."
