'These Hands: Texas' -- Ted Cruz Rips Obama's Anti-Business Riff

The Romney campaign has found a way to get maximum mileage out of President Obama’s anti-business “You didn’t build that!” speech. The campaign is finding small business owners all over the country, state by state, to give their reaction to the president’s collectivism.

The Romney camp added another wrinkle to the Texas edition of “These Hands.” Ted Cruz, fresh from his July 31 Senate run-off victory, is joining the pushback against the president. In a statement that the Romney campaign released today, the man who is very likely to be the next Senator from Texas hammers the president.

“From El Paso to Texarkana, entrepreneurs and small-business owners across Texas know that they built their success with their own two hands,” said Texas Republican Senate Nominee Ted Cruz. “They also know the damage that bad policy from Washington can do to the economy. From new regulations to higher taxes to Obamacare, the President has placed one obstacle after another in front of Texas job creators. Mitt Romney knows how to turn this economy around, and his plan for a stronger middle class is exactly what we need. Texans—like all Americans—can’t afford four more years of Barack Obama.”

Indeed.

After his win last week, Ted Cruz is red hot as the “Marco Rubio of Texas.” It can only help the Romney camp to have already gotten a local assist from Cruz.
