Letter to the Editor

Tea Party fanatic

San Luis ObispoNovember 21, 2013 

After reading The Tribune’s front-page feature on Heidi Cruz, wife of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, I guess I’m supposed to be proud that this person hails from my home town.

Excuse me if I have the opposite reaction.

Despite Ms. Cruz’s comments about Ted’s intellect and likability, those traits do not mitigate the damage this misguided Tea Party fanatic wreaks on this country on a regular basis.

Mr. Cruz has tried to destroy the fabric of this nation’s governmental integrity and damage its credit rating, all in service of his narrow-minded hatred of President Barack Obama and his effort to insure millions of Americans who have no health insurance.

So, spare me the cute photos and the happy talk.

In my opinion, Heidi Cruz is married to a very dangerous man.
