This rings true even for me and I am about as far from being an economist as anyone can get.

Now ... Is it Cruz himself or the possiblity of the return of the gold standard that has them so worried?

Given the number of bits they spent bashing gold versus trashing Cruz, I'd say they were more worried about gold.  Cruz doesn't have much of a chance.  Neither does Rand Paul.  But Trump does, and Trump is just crazy enough (as for as TPTB are concerned) to adopt something like a gold standard platform to gain from those constituencies.
