Letter: Cruz right to challenge views of the 'left'

To the editor:

Ted Cruz has the intellectual acuteness of Salman Rushdie, Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s undaunted courage to dissent, the satirical wit of Mark Twain, the political savvy of Ronald Reagan, the oratorical preciseness of MLK, and the zeal for America’s perpetuity and greatness of JFK.

No wonder the muddle-headed “left” is trembling and ramping up their verbal attack machine against Ted Cruz.

As Albert Einstein said: “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
