The Top Laughably Wrong Military and Veterans Talking Points From GOP Candidates

On Ted Cruz's presidential campaign website, as the first bullet point under his positions and record on national security and the military, Cruz states that he "[o]pposed the Obama Administration's dangerous deal with Iran that would allow Iran to pursue nuclear weapons." By "deal with Iran that would allow Iran to pursue nuclear weapons," he means the deal that would end, in a matter of months, Iran's ability to develop nuclear weapons that they would use to threaten the entire world. It occurred to us at VoteVets.org that there will be a lot of statements from conservative candidates for president that range from "fudged" to "completely wrong." Most of these statements are easy to predict. So, as a public service, here's a cheat sheet for you, so when you hear those statements, you know why they're just not right.
