No, absolutely not. He did NOT escape ”Castro’s Cuba” - that’s the meme that they tried to use, just as Rubio did. In fact, his father was part of a leftist revolutionary group in the 1950s and he emigrated from Cuba PRIOR to the Castro takeover in 1959, just as Rubio’s parents did.

Interesting. Do you have a link for that background?

I’m no fan of pro-amnesty, kindergarten-talking Rubio, but Cruz has impressed me so far and I won’t hold his father’s politics 50+ years ago against him.

I know he was for Castro...at first.

I remember sitting in a dorm room, about 1960, in TX having arguments about whether Castro was what he turned out to be ...or not.

I don't remember much about it but wonder now if Obama is more open now than Castro was at the time.
