Here’s how Ted Cruz attacked Hillary Clinton for criticizing the state of Alabama’s decision to shutter 31 DMV offices, after instituting a voter ID requirement:
“Frankly, it’s a bigotry from the Democrats. They look down on the Southern states like we’re a bunch of hicks. Look, I’m from Texas and Hillary Clinton is not a big fan of my state either. We don’t need more politicians from Washington looking down on us like a fly-over company. We’ve had seven years of a president who looks down on the American people. Hillary Clinton thinks we’re just a bunch of ignorant rubes, and we need to be governed by what she deems as moral and philosophical betters. I think that’s complete nonsense. I believe in the American people.”
I should note as a caveat that the people trying to make it impossible for poor minorities to vote may just be suffering from a severe case of economic anxiety.
