    Definitely Cruz had this planned for a publicity stunt. It was more about getting his name on the news than Castro feeling slighted.

    Another camera whore like Palin.
    Ted Cruz IS a walking publicity stunt. Don't you remember...this is the same Clown that thought this was a good use of taxpayer money:

    He couldn't possibly have deep feelings about the man the persecuted his father in Cuba right?

    Anybody that questions Ted Cruz' reaction to Castro has not walked a mile in his shoes.

    I know from experience that in a Cuban house in the US the Castros are a very present force.

    I am sure his father told him many stories of Castro and I am sure they have stuck with him.

    You can call it a publicity stunt but I would lean more towards the fact that Cruz didn't want to be in the same room or in the same area as a Castro.

    I can't blame him for that.

    We know where Cruz stands and it isn't likely even near a high horse. We know where he stands, outside in line for the crapper, with others of the same ilk, full of crap.

    while i am not defending Cruz, the idea of wasting tax money goes both ways, democrats have used tax money to make speeches on the house floor (after hours), to call republican KKK members.

    so waste is a two way street.

    Yeah, I might not agree with his position, but it's rather strange people are treating this as having no prior precedent

    That is a biased assumption on your part with no basis in reality.

    I agree....what I especially find galling about Cruz though is how he claims to be such a fiscal conservative, but has no problem wasting millions of taxpayer money. He is a hypocrite through and through.

    I would have walked out too. I think Cruz did the right thing.

    I would not subject myself to the speech of a dictator who's nation produces human rights violations and restricts freedom. I would make a public statement of disapproval by leaving as well.

    I think it was a little more personal to Cruz. If his father did get out I am sure there are many more in his family that didn't.
