My goodness. What’s with the Sen. Ted Cruz Campaign? Another nasty trick, this time against Sen. Marco Rubio . The Cruz campaign literally “made up a picture” showing Rubio shaking hands with Barack Obama in an attack ad. The problem is that the picture is not real – it didn’t happen. Rubio describes this is in a continuing line of the Cruz Campaign just making things up to suit their purposes.
You have to wonder who is signing off on these bad decisions.
I wish anyone in my family looked as happy seeing me as Ted Cruz made Rubio look greeting Obama in a poor photoshop. pic.twitter.com/DGkB27HiPy

Here is the original photo used for the graphic:
I spent over ten years in graphic design so I know a photoshopped graphic when I see one, and this is one. The problem is the campaign was caught, and they initially said it was a legit graphic, and then they walked it back later. That’s not right my friends.
1) Team Cruz sends out Rubio/Obama photoshop job
2) They get caught
3) Their defense: They've shaken hands before!

Question for Ted Cruz fans: After latest fiasco of Photoshop pic of Marco Rubio shaking hands with Obama, when will his ethics bother you?
