Ted Cruz's Castro Contradistinction

"Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, walked out of the memorial service for Nelson Mandela when Cuban 'President' Raúl Castro began speaking," Jim Geraghty writes (and I love the quotation marks around the dictator's faux-title):

“Senator Cruz very much hopes that Castro learns the lessons of Nelson Mandela,” said Sean Rushton, Cruz’s communications director. “For decades, Castro has wrongly imprisoned and tortured countless innocents. Just as Mandela was released after 27 years in prison, Castro should finally release his political prisoners; he should hold free elections, and once and for all set the Cuban people free.”

Which makes for quite a contrast with the actions of Mr. Obama today:
