On Opinion: Democrats fear Hispanic Republicans

Cal asserts that "Democrats fear the double threats of Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla." without evidence.

Thus the fundamental premise of his piece is fatally flawed. Growing out of fatally flawed premise, the entirety of his piece is worthless from a community perspective.

He simply believes and asserts — again, without evidence; something like a quote from a Democrat saying they fear either Rubio or Cruz would suffice as evidence — in question form that the only explanation for Democrats' critique of Rubio or Cruz is that they are motivated by fear. That's not a self-evident truth.

A more reasonable belief / assertion would be that Democrats simply think Cruz and Rubio's policy beliefs are flawed.

But then Cal would not have anything to base his fantasy on.

It's a shame that the LJW doesn't have higher standards for the kinds of rhetorical pieces they run. More sound thinking and better logic and analysis would provide good models for the community to emulate and aspire to.

After Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel whether he had been compensated by foreign interests hostile to the United States for speeches he made in which he seemed to favor their aspirations, Boxer said of Cruz’s tenacious questioning, “It was really reminiscent of a different time and place, when you said, ‘I have here in my pocket a speech you made on such and such a date,’ and of course nothing was in the pocket. It was reminiscent of some bad times.”

Yeah, Sen Cruz, about that claim you made...
