Old Tailgunner Ted feigned ignorance and had the nerve to play the poverty card when asked about the loan he "forgot to mention" to the FEC from Goldman Sachs for his senate run.

He also wanted the audience at the Fox Business Republican debate to believe that "debate" "moderator" money-honey Maria Bartiromo is some liberal tool of The New York Times.

Here's more on that from Politico:

Cruz's Goldman loan: NOT just a ‘paperwork error’

Ted Cruz tried to minimize the $1 million loan from Goldman Sachs and Citigroup that the New York Times revealed he failed to disclose, suggesting his campaign made a paperwork error, but it’s not significant because he disclosed it elsewhere. He’s referring to the disclosures of his personal finances he made as a senator, as opposed to the disclosures his campaign has to make to the Federal Election Commission. But the Times story quoted a political-law expert rejecting that excuse: you still have to comply with the FEC rules. The fact is Cruz’s campaign lied when it said the cash injection came from “personal funds.”

Sadly the rubes in the audience were cheering wildly at Cruz's response.
