Jim Geraghty - Cruz Walks Out on Castro Speech at Memorial Service for Mandela

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, walked out of the memorial service for Nelson Mandela when Cuban “President” Raúl Castro began speaking.

“Senator Cruz very much hopes that Castro learns the lessons of Nelson Mandela,” said Sean Rushton, Cruz’s communications director. “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.”

Earlier in the day, President Obama shook hands with Castro.

Neither event surprises me, least of all Obastard's greeting Castro; what surprises me is that he didn't hug him.
