Ted Cruz went off on President Barack Obama and his lack of leadership in fighting global terrorism during a campaign stop in Nashua, New Hampshire, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

Speaking at the Republican Leadership Summit, the Texas senator launched an aggressive attack on what he sees as the president's feeble handling of the nation's long-standing might in the world.

"Twenty months from now, imagine a commander in chief who stands up with utter clarity and says 'we will destroy radical Islamic terrorism,'" Cruz said as he made the rounds in New Hampshire, which holds the first presidential primary.

"Imagine a president who stands with our allies, whether it is the U.K. or France. We all remember just a few months ago seeing over 40 world leaders walking arm in arm in solidarity with France against radical Islamic terrorism. Where, oh where, oh where was the United States of America?"

He added of the president's long-standing hobby: "If only the terrorists attacked a golf course. That might actually get the White House's attention. 'Holy Cow, this is serious!'"

It is not the first time Cruz, one of three announced GOP presidential candidates alongside Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, has gone after the president and his handling of the war on terror.

In February, speaking to Fox News, Cruz dubbed Obama "an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists," Real Clear Politics reported.

"What undermines the global effort is for the president of the United States to be an apologist for radical Islamic terrorists, to analogize it to the Crusades from 700 years ago," Cruz told Fox host Megyn Kelly.

Last August, speaking at the Iowa Family Leadership Summit, Cruz tied both Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to the rise of terrorism groups around the globe, noting that the growth of the Islamic State is "the latest manifestation of the failures of the Obama-Clinton foreign policies," Time magazine reported.
