    CATHERINE THOMPSON – DECEMBER 11, 2013, 6:52 AM EST4103

     

    A spokeswoman for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Tuesday that the lawmaker walked out of Nelson Mandela's memorial service in Johannesburg when Cuban President Raul Castro spoke to the crowd, according to news reports.

    “Sen. Cruz very much hopes that Castro learns the lessons of Nelson Mandela,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told ABC News. “For decades, Castro has wrongly imprisoned and tortured countless innocents. Just as Mandela was released after 27 years in prison, Castro should finally release his political prisoners. He should hold free elections, and once and for all, set the Cuban people free.”

    Cruz, whose father immigrated to the United States from Cuba, was one of just two Republicans that joined an official congressional delegation to attend the memorial service.

    President Barack Obama shook Castro's hand as he greeted a line of world leaders before taking the podium to speak at the service. That gesture was later criticized by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ

    Does it seem like Cruz's spokeswoman is mistaking Raul for Fidel?

    Good for him.

    Both Castros have perpetrated a horror on Cuba so what difference does it make if Cruz' spokesperson meant Fidel?  Like there is any meaningful difference in their guilt?

    Cuba, last in the world in tha gap between rich and poor. Maybe China and North Korea are worse.

    Happens all the time at the UN. US representatives walk out on Iran, N.Korea prior to their speeches. I don't see that ever getting any play around here.

    It's not the walk out, it's who walked out that gets the libs all bunged up.

    Progressives secretly,  and often openly,  admire the Castros.

    After all, Marxists are just "liberals in a hurry".  The State is all powerful. Unemployment compensation has been extended for 55 years, now.

     They made sure there is no income inequality,  by making sure no one is rich other than Government-approved stooges.

    They have socialized medicine. Their version of MSNBC state-run media gets high ratings, because it has no competition....

    And they had a creative solution for their problems with their rigid "Party of No", their own version of the Tea Party, who didnt say all nice things about Comrade Fidel ; they killed them, or put them in jail.

    Weird.  Canadians are known for being polite, almost to a fault.  Maybe he just needed some warm milk from a bag.

    Maybe he was just having trouble hearing Castro, and was frightened by the message from the intepreter signing "fire moon clover donkey wind cheese monkey"

    Yet another low information hyper-patriotic American "Birther", using stereotypes about foreigners. How dare you generalize about another sovereign nation!  Why, Canadians can be as impolite as anyone else.

    Who are you, Donald Trump? Bet you think Obama is a Kenyan, too.

    Well, thank god he didn't take a picture of himself with some other world leaders. THAT would be a problem...with those with ODS.

    Maybe he should have thrown a shoe at Castros head, or has that been done already?

    I'm pretty sure that both Cruz and his spokesperson knew exactly which Castro they were referring to:
