Ted Cruz is in the race for President

Ted Cruz is in the race for President

Gun LegislationHere I go again; telling the truth about the GOP and calling it like it is, and as usual, I don’t give a damn who gets offended either.

The National GOP is its own worst enemy. Until the GOP becomes the REAL GOP again, the Party of Reagan, it will continue to lose elections to those that have NO BUSINESS being in office.

The GOP, the Mainstream GOP, is afraid of Ted Cruz, Conservatives and what remains of the TEA Party. GOP Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) compares Cruz to a ‘sideshow entertainer’.

The DNC and Libbers as a whole are terrified of Ted Cruz. Do you know why? Have you ever taken a look at the resume of Ted Cruz?

Cruz and the GOP

Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 – May 2008, Cruz was the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest Solicitor General in the entire country, and had the longest tenure in Texas history.

Partner at the law firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius, where he led the firm’s U.S. Supreme Court and national appellate litigation practice.

Cruz has authored 80+ SCOTUS briefs and presented 40+ oral arguments before The Court.

Cruz served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Cruz was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for a Chief Justice of the United States.

Described as a ‘superb’ constitutional lawyer.

In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz assembled a coalition of 31 states in defense of the principle that the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms.

Cruz presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. 

In addition to his victory in Heller, Cruz has successfully defended the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools and the majority of the 2003 Texas redistricting plan.

Cruz also successfully defended, in Medellin v. Texas, the State of Texas against an attempt by the International Court of Justice to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the United States.

Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission.

Domestic Policy Advisor to U.S. President George W. Bush on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign.

Adjunct Professor of Law at the University Of Texas School Of Law in Austin, where he taught U.S. Supreme Court litigation.

Ted Cruz is currently junior US Senator from Texas. In order to win the 2012 Republican nomination for the Senate seat vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison, Cruz had to defeat Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst -heavily favored/backed by the DC old-guard GOP- in the Republican primary runoff. In the event, TEA Party favorite Cruz crushed Dewhurst, 57-43%.

He then beat Democrat Paul Sadler in the general election by a similar margin, 56-41. Cruz is also endorsed by the Tea Party Movement and the Republican Liberty Caucus.

AWARDS: “America’s Leading Lawyers for Business,” Chambers USA (2009 & 2010) “50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America,” National Law Journal (2008) “25 Greatest Texas Lawyers of the Past Quarter Century,” Texas Lawyer (2010) “20 Young Hispanic Americans on the Rise,” Newsweek (1999) Traphagen Distinguished Alumnus, Harvard Law School.

On November 14, 2012, Cruz was appointed vice-chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He is now spearheading efforts in the Senate to have Obamacare repealed root-and-branch.

Is Ted Cruz *The One* for 2016? I don’t know and at this point in time no one else know either, but one thing is a certainty; if the national GOP continues with its same weak leadership, its fragmented leadership and its habit of running a weak candidate that will, in their opinion, appeal to all, you can get ready to say hello to Hillary Clinton, or something even worse.

Ted Cruz may not be perfect and before this is over we’re going to have a lot of frogs in this race before we crown a prince, but Cruz deserves a chance to have his voice heard and his ideas given FAIR consideration, or we go with the GOP status quo and lose again.

    More qualified than Obama was or IS. There’s a problem though, we don’t know if he inhaled, or if he was ever a member of the Choom Gang. But within a week we will.

    Rumor has it, Ted really doesn’t want to be POTUS, but he needs a background check done so he can buy a gun in CA, this is the cheapest way, “journalists” after 7yrs of slumber now have a mission….

  2. Alan Caruba says:

    Whether he wins the nomination or not, he is definetely a breath of fresh air and a very accomplished one at that. I like his conservative values–surprise–and want to see him articulate them as part of the political process we call campaigning. He may end up surprising a lot of people who find they are not alone in liking them as well. One can only hope the GOP elite who run the party will have to concede to Cruz and other Tea Party favorites like Paul and Carson.

    • TexasFred says:

      My Congressman, Pete Sessions (TX-32) doesn’t like him at all, that, in and of itself has given me some degree of confidence in Ted Cruz..

      • Wayne says:

        WE THE PEOPLE should take careful note of all the GOP who stand against this man. They reek of socialism.

      • You called it Fred……..and I agree with Alan as well…but insofar as my thought on Cruz…just be who he is and for crying out loud don’t try and replicate Obama and sound like highly educated
        Person who massages his speeches to the point of ORGAMSM, cause as it turned out Obama did the HUMPY-BACK DANCE routine on America’s backside and our Constitution and we never got kissed…….AMERICA been and continues to be SODIMIZED almost on a daily basis….just talk like “FOLK”….TALK TO US, not down TO US….you will do just fine…people are sick of Obama and his minions….Texas just wants down to earth FOLKS..nothing more nothing less….but then again…it’s just my opinion..

  3. BobF says:

    As a Constitutional Lawyer, he actually has a resume, unlike Obama.

    You can tell a lot about the character of a man by what he stands against and who stands against him. The fact that the establishment GOP and Democrats are united against him tells me he’s a man of high character.

    There are some good Conservatives out there who the GOP doesn’t want in the run. Cruz, Perry, and Jindal are three who come to mind.

  4. Wayne says:

    Fred, you describe T.C. to a “T”. If you’re not taking flak, you ain’t over the target. I was unaware of his participation in “Heller”. I’m also amazed that the democrat talking heads are concerned so about who will be able to beat a democrat in ’16. They seem genuinley concerned.

  5. cary says:

    Hmmm … we already know more about Cruz than we do about O, even to this day. Strong supporter of the constitution, actually is a natural born citizen, we know where he went to college and what degrees he holds, we know he has worked for non-government entities, and he hasn’t organized any communities.

    No wonder the left is up in arms.

  6. abigail says:

    Obama said: ‘..at some point there’s going to be a President Rodriguez..”

    Oh the irony should it be a Cruz instead!

  7. Gary K says:

    Ted with Condaleesa Rice for VP.
    What a ticket!!

    • cary says:

      Latino guy with a black female VP – the left would implode, not knowing which race or sex card to throw …

      • NativeSon says:

        Cary,
        There would be a new designation from the LSM: “Anglo-black” for Condoleeza, and the “we made it up for use ‘against’-George Zimmerman,” ever so (not) popular “white hispanic”…And BOTH would be referred to as “Uncle Tom’s” who are “untrue to their heritage” (as if “AMERICAN” isn’t THE greatest heritage to have)…

    Cruz has the Marxists and Rinos running scared. That’s a good thing. Hope he continues to give them all acid reflux from now until election day 2016.
