    Rafael T. Cruz, son of a Cuban who fought for and with Fidel Castro in the revolution

    First let me say it doesn't matter to me in any way but, it strikes me as comical how so many on the right are taken or have been taken by the likes of Rafael "Ted" Cruz. For those who don't know, Cruz's father was born and raised in Cuba. When he was 14 years old he took up arms in the fight against Batista with none other than Fidel Castro! The elder Mr. Cruz claims he eventually woke up and realized Castro was a bad guy and fled to the U.S. Honestly though, what else was he going to say after defecting here? For the record I think he is probably telling the truth.

    The funny thing to me is that this is never brought up, or at least not to the extent that "Obama is a Muslim" is brought up. "Barry's dad" was a muslim scumbag. Obummer is a filthy muslim too" He is a communist etc, etc, blah blah blah. I can only imagine if Obama had a similar heritage to Mr. Cruz how absolutely every day we would never hear the end of it... Oh the hypocrisy....

    Sure are. Scared that his ego may not fit into one of those rings at the circus.

    You really can't compare the actions of a 14 year old that later woke up with the continued actions of a person throughout adulthood.

    I agree but I can't help but believe if Cruz had a D after his name it would happen.

    You forgot that Mr. Cruz was also born in the socialist country of Canada. Precisely Calgary, Alberta.
    A graduate of Princeton, then graduated magna cum laude from the Harvard Law School. An Ivy League snob if I ever saw one.
    Cable news. Making the ignorant.....confident.

    Our politics are a reflection of our personal ethics.

    I find that a good rule of thumb is to determine which candidate is working in the interest of ignorance and vote for the other one. Telling them apart is one of the few things that's becoming easier with time.

    How do you know what the President's dad was? Think I may have misunderstood your post if I did I am sorry.

    Yes he was born in Canada. The post was about his father. What is your point?

    What else would you expect [other than hypocrisy] from the party that has introduced legislation to make legal abortion nearly impossible to get, and trying to dissuade the women who manage it by requiring transvaginal ultrasounds [the most invasive kind possible], but is now running scary ads regarding the government getting between people & their medical decisions?
    The party that declares itself against government regulation, then introduces hundreds of new regulations designed to put family planning clinics out of business?
    The party that frowns on welfare, unless it's corporate?
    The party that slams the opposition for 'pandering' to minorities, then shows up at Hispanic Heritage events to promise them governmental love?
    Hypocrites R Us is the Republican modus operandi.
