NASHUA, N.H. — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Republican presidential candidate, took a jab at President Barack Obama Saturday for not attending the march in France against radical Islamic terrorism when he gave remarks at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit.

“And we all remember just a few months ago seeing over 40 world leaders walking arm and arm in solidarity with France against radical Islamic terrorism and where oh where oh where was the United States of America? You know, if only the terrorists attacked a golf course. That might actually get the White House’s attention. ‘Holy cow! This is serious!'” Cruz said.

The march in France happened after two masked gunmen opened fire and killed 12 people and injured 11 others at the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
