    he represents the continuance of the castro regime on the island. Seriously, for some who always act condescending, it's amazing how ideological and inherently dishonest you are

    Even so, it wasn't exactly a state secret that Raul Castro was going to be there. Why did Ted Cruz go in the first place?

    If you ask me, this was planned in advance.

    because he wanted to?

    If he did or not, what is the issue?

    It's grandstanding and showboating at someone's memorial service, someone far more consequential in this world than Ted ****ing Cruz, and making things All About Ted.

    If Castro is in the same room, you bet.

    It is sad you don't understand the depth of the feeling Cubans have about the Castros.

    Why don't you go talk to some and then come back here and post about it.

    I understand the depth of the feeling Cubans have about the Castros. Hell, the only reason we haven't broken the embargo is so as not to piss off the small but vocal Cuban electoral bloc in Miami-Dade.

    That said, if Cruz wants to protest the mere presence of a Castro at the memorial service for one of the most admired people in the world, then he deserves all the criticism he gets for it. If he objected that much to Castro's presence, he should have stayed home.
