Exploiting Newtown?!

This caught my eye....

Sen. Ted Cruz: Obama Began Exploiting Newtown Tragedy “Within Minutes” 

Money quote:
...within minutes of that horrible tragedy in Newtown the president began trying to exploit that tragedy to push a gun control agenda....
I know that "politics ain't beanbag." I know that politicians are generally considered to be dishonest people. And there's no question that scandals like Watergate, Iran-Contra, and the efforts of the Bush and Blair administrations to push us into war in Iraq have really eroded public faith in government.

But Senator Cruz...I it even remotely possible that President Obama is advocating for reform because he thinks it's the right thing to do? The way that some folks talk, I imagine that they think that the minute word came to the president about Newtown, he laughed maniacally, twisted his evil black mustache and rubbed his hands together in villainous glee! 

Skepticism of government is a good, healthy thing. But someone disagreeing with you is not the same thing as that person speaking / acting in bad faith!
