Maybe I'm reading body language and facial cues that weren't really there, but it looked like Norah O'Donnell wanted to ram an ice pick into Cruz's eye socket during her " you don't even know how many Muslims are in the United States!" screech.I guarantee you'd *never* see such a look of utter contempt and loathing on her face during an interview with Hillary. No, you'd see starstruck fawning and rapturous joy.As a professional courtesy at least try to *appear* neutral when interviewing your ideological opponents, Norah. I guess CBS doesn't provide training to its employees.
Oh, and props to Cruz for maintaining a professional demeanor in overtly hostile territory. I thought his answers were mostly poor and evasive rhetoric, but he stuck to his script and stayed composed which was nice.
What is the answer to the police chief of NYC, (Bill Bratton) who ran the surveillance program with Muslim neighborhoods under Bloomberg (did they do that under Guliani also ?) who disagrees with Cruz? Hard to argue against that.
It seems to me that Cruz should call it "police engagement with the community to help them". and have the Muslim officers engage the communities in a positive way.
