As I watched Sen. Ted Cruz, I couldn't figure out who he reminded me of. Then it hit me. Mr. Haney of the sitcom "Green Acres"! It's as if he were Mr. Haney's Harvard-educated grandson. He will use any tactic to get what he wants. And it doesn't matter to him who gets hurt in the process. Mr. Haney was comical, trying to swindle a few pennies from Mr. Douglas, all the while acting hurt when he was caught.
Ted Cruz is much more dangerous. He craves power. Hopefully, Americans will see him for what he is.
