Political campaigns have room for dirty tricks but this one is dumb. Why photoshop the heads of Obama and Rubio on a stock photo? Didn't anyone in the Cruz campaign think it would be caught? Now, Cruz has to defend himself from charges of lying rather than making his points about why he should win the primary. One benefit of the internet age is that such chicanery is discovered far more quickly to the detriment of the candidate who uses it. When found out, it backfires on the candidate -- as it should. If Cruz survives this, and there is a good chance he will, maybe he will think twice before using such a stupid approach again.
