Why does the left hate Ted Cruz? If only there was one answer to that.
Not only is he Hispanic, but he’s also a staunch defender of the Constitution. He’s very conservative, and is perhaps the smartest Senator ever elected in history. All of this makes Ted Cruz dangerous to the progressive agenda.
So when asked about the caricature the left has developed of him – as a crazy lunatic, his response is fantastic:
“The media historically paints two caricatures of Republicans: we’re either stupid or evil […] I guess I take it as a little bit of a backhanded compliment that the media has to some extent invented a third caricature for me, which is crazy,” Cruz said.
The 2016 contender said that media outlets “do everything they can to paint me as a wild-eyed lunatic with dynamite strapped to my chest.”
Cruz said that the “media gatekeepers” are hopeless but that social media, the Internet, Fox News and other outlets will allow him to go directly to the people with the truth.

Cruz goes on to explain to Sean Hannity how Ronald Reagan received the same type of criticism, so in many ways Cruz is honored to be in the same category.
