It was a clever set-up for a negative ad from Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign – one that took aim at rival Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.: Seven people sitting in a circle, group-therapy style, talking about their past ballot box regrets.
“Has anyone else here struggled with being lied to?” the group’s leader asks.
“Well, I voted for a guy who was a tea party hero on the campaign trail,” a man in the circle of trust replies. “Then he went to D.C. and played patty-cake with Chuck Schumer and cut a deal on amnesty.”
“Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time,” a woman advises.
Cruz puts in an appearance at the end, offering the usual disclaimer: “I’m Ted Cruz, and I approved this message.”
