Ted Cruz shares ‘fun fact’ about libs’ response to Castro-Obama comparison

When U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, defended his father’s comment comparing Barack Obama to Fidel Castro, he showed just how overly-sensitive liberals are to any criticism of the president.

Addressing a FreedomWorks “Free the People” event in Salt Lake City in July, Rafael Cruz recalled his experiences as a teen in Cuba.

“I remember during that time, a young, charismatic leader rose up, talking about ‘hope’ and ‘change.’ His name was Fidel Castro,” the elder Cruz said.

On Saturday, the Cuban émigré’s senator son stuck up for his father during an event in Allen, Texas, telling the crowd that he had posted a portion of his father’s speech on his Facebook page shortly after he delivered it, according to The Raw Story. He omitted, however, any direct reference to the Obama/Castro comparison.

“A left-leaning journalist — although I repeat myself — wrote a blog posting blasting me, saying, ‘This is a bit over-the-top, comparing Barack Obama to Fidel Castro,’” Cruz said.

After reading numerous comments on the blog, all condemning the comparison, Cruz said he decided to add one of his own.

“You know, I have been reading all of these comments hyperventilating about my dad’s speech, and I want to make just one simple point,” he said he wrote. “If you look at what my father said, he never once mentioned the words, ‘Barack Obama.’ He simply described what Fidel Castro did in Cuba. Now what does it say about you that you hear what Castro did and immediately think that has got to be Obama?”
