In an interview on MSNBC’s Jansing & Co., Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said what everyone endowed with the powers of reason and logic has been thinking: Ted Cruz (R-TX) has deep-seated Obama-related issues that completely cloud his judgment.

Speaking about immigration reform, Menendez let loose:

“I think Ted Cruz is fixated on this issue and it’s amazing to me representing a state like Texas that he doesn’t understand that a pathway to citizenship is really what is desired,” he began. “I think he has Obamaphobia. The reality is that it is the ‘Gang of Eight’ that came together — four Democrats, four Republicans — and said that we need a path to citizenship.”

This was in response to an interview Cruz gave to ABC on Monday, in which the Texas “wacko bird” called President Obama “the biggest obstacle to passing common-sense immigration reform.”
