Brussels: The Republican Candidates Distinguish Themselves From Clinton and Sanders

"We don't need any lectures on Islamophobia"
-Ted Cruz

All five of the remaining presidential candidates have spoken out about the latest terror attacks in Brussels today. Town Hall has an article on Ted Cruz's statement.

Thank you for your clarity, Senator. Indeed, we don't need any lectures on Islamophobia. Tell that to the people in Belgium.

In addition, Donald Trump has renewed his call to suspend admission of Muslims to the US. While I am not a Trump supporter, I do support that statement.

John Kasich says that ISIS must be defeated not only in the air, but on the ground as well by a  US-led coalition that includes our European and Arab allies.

Then there are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, who have issued these pusillanimous statements:

Clinton says that any response by the US must be "consistent with our values".

To which I say, "Suicide is not an American value." She is calling for more of the same.

This morning I watched Sanders being interviewed on TV. He said that we must improve our intelligence gathering capabilities.


Is there any doubt as to which candidates would make the stronger leaders -at a time we desperately need a strong leader?

Are those the Republican candidates pushing those luggage carts?
