View Diary: Sen. Ted Cruz's immigrant dad was crooked law-breaker, which is almost as bad as being a senator (91 comments)

  •  I'm not sure why this matters. (0+ / 0-)

    What his dad did isn't relevant to Cruz's idiocy.

    Why not focus on what a tool he is and not paint him with the same brush we paint his father.

    Sure, he's a hypocrite, but being a hypocrite isn't illegal, and it's surely something that all of us must expect from pols.  That's just what they do.

    This makes us look petty.  Recall how they went after Clinton for something completely irrelevant to governance?  Remember how we hated that?

    Why do we have to do it?

      improve yourself is hardly wrong. And his dad maybe supported Castro, but then changed his mind (and given Castro, what's wrong with that).
      The thing that gets me is how this guy can run for President. Born in a foreign country with a Cuban dad; how is that a "natural born American"?

      Those who quote Santayana are condemned to repeat him. Me
