Comment: Not sold on Cruz

Not sold on Cruz

While he positions himself as something of a rebel, I was very disappointed how he eagerly carried out dirty work against Secretary of State nominee Chuck Hagel on behalf of AIPAC and the rest of the Israel lobby.

While I sincerely appreciate many of the stands Cruz has taken, including his support of Rand Paul's filibuster, there's no way I could vote for him for president if he's going to be part of the GOP crowd that proclaims "there should be no distance between the United States and our dear friend, Israel," and pushes neo-con foreign policy stances with Iran and other Middle East countries.
