Remember when liberal politicians told their constituents and others in their state to NOT TRAVEL? They made it basically illegal, if not immoral, to go to other countries.

So now, they're scathing Ted Cruz for taking his daughters to Cancun in the "middle of a power crisis". According to Cruz:

“...with school canceled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon."

Photos of a man who "looked like" Ted Cruz circulated around the internet. And even FOX was critical of him for doing it. But the girls wanted to go and good Dad Ted wasn't about to let them travel alone.

His girls are 10 and 13 and they were to meet up with the families of friends. So it wasn't like he was going to stay and play. They were. He was not.

I'm not convinced this criticism deserves much attention, but since the media is paying attention, I'm going to respond by saying there's no hypocrisy here. Neither the Governor nor Cruz ever said people "shouldn't travel on account of the snow/ice situation". You were advised not to go out unless you have to. And, as someone who has raised her own group of teens and pre-teens, I can tell you that braving the snow and ice is far easier than listening to them whine for a week because they can't be with their friends.
