Former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz, currently in a Republican Senate primary runoff against Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, was asked at a Tea Party forum on Saturday whether he thinks it is appropriate for President Obama to maintain a terrorist “kill list.” In May, the New York Times reported that Obama maintains a list of known foreign terrorists who he can order strikes on if the opportunity arises. Cruz answered, “Well number one, I’m worried all of us are on it.” The remark prompted a “big laugh” from the Tea Party audience.
