Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) of course had to weigh in on President Obama’s trip to one of Cruz’s ancestral homelands. According to Cruz, “It is so sad, and so injurious to our future as well as Cuba’s, that Obama has chosen to legitimize the corrupt and oppressive Castro regime with his presence on the island.”
But what did the Junior Senator have to say when his former boss, good buddy and Poor Idiot Governor Greg Abbott visited Cuba a few months ago? Righteous indignation at pandering to dictators? Hardly. Even though the two trips shared almost identical mission statements, there was radio silence from Cruz. So when Tea Party Republicans visit Cuba to promote trade and business that’s absolutely great. But when the President does the same thing, well we all knew he was a Commie at heart anyway.
