Ted Cruz - Latest Teaparty Superstar

 
 
Reply Sun 5 Aug, 2012 03:30 pm
He is soon to be the new senator from Texas. He believes the UN has mandated that Americans live in Hobbit Houses and we will have to do it - Country folk rounded up and made to live in the cities, paved roads done away with - He is said to be the teabaggers' intellectual voice. Fortunately he was not born here. He will never run for president.

Proven Record


For too long, we have all been frustrated by politicians who promise one thing on Election Day, and then fail to stand up for those values once elected. You shall know them by their deeds, and the question we should ask of every candidate is:


“You say you believe in these principles. Show me. When have you fought for conservative principles and what have you accomplished?”

After over a decade in public service, Ted Cruz has a proven record, over and over again, of standing up for conservative values, fighting and winning on a national level:
•Fighting for America’s Free-Market Economy
•Defending U.S. Sovereignty
•Preserving Religious Freedom
•Defending Life
•Leading the Fight for the 2nd Amendment
•Securing Our Nation’s Borders
•Supporting Energy Independence
•Fighting Voter Fraud
•Deterring Frivolous Lawsuits to Promote Economic Growth
•Defending Property Rights, Preserving Economic Liberty
•Fiercely Protecting America’s Troops
•Protecting Traditional Marriage
•Fighting Bigotry and Racial Hatred
•Combating Sexual Predators
•Defending Congressional Redistricting

@edgarblythe,
Why is it that these semi-humanoid bipeds always seem to show up in Texas, running for one office or another? Is there something in your water?

@Lustig Andrei,
The Tea people are all over the country. They just happen to be a bit more concentrated in some areas. The ones in Texas are like fire ants - always on the attack, never needing a thought out reason.

The National Law Journal called him “a key voice” to whom “the [U.S. Supreme Court] Justices listen.” He was named by American Lawyer magazine as one of the 50 Best Litigators under 45 in America, by the National Law Journal as one of the 50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America, and Texas Lawyer as one of the 25 Greatest Lawyers of the Past Quarter Century.

Ted currently serves as a Partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP in Houston, where he leads the firm’s U.S. Supreme Court and national Appellate Litigation practice. In addition, from 2004-09, he taught U.S. Supreme Court Litigation as an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Texas School of Law.

Prior to serving as Solicitor General, Ted served as the Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, an Associate Deputy Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice, and Domestic Policy Advisor on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign. In addition, Ted clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist on the U.S. Supreme Court. He was the first Hispanic ever to have clerked for the Chief Justice of the United States.

Ted has seen first-hand that America’s bedrock principle is the pursuit of freedom and opportunity. His father came to Texas from Cuba penniless at age 18, not speaking a word of English. Cruz went on to study at Princeton where, in college debate, he was named the U.S. National Speaker of the Year and the U.S. National Team of the Year (with his partner). He also won the First Place Speaker award at both the 1992 U.S. National Debating Championship and the 1992 North American Debate Championships.

He graduated from Harvard Law School magna cum laude and served as a Primary Editor of the Harvard Law Review, an Executive Editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy, and a Founding Editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review.

Ted and his wife Heidi live in Houston, where he grew up, with their three-year-old daughter, Caroline, and their newborn daughter Catherine.

Ted Cruz Wants To Gut Social Security: In an interview with the Texas Tribune Cruz labeled Social Security a “ponzi scheme” and outlined a three-step plan to gut this essential program. Cruz would raise the Social Security retirement age, cut future benefits, and implement a George W. Bush-style plan to privatize much of the program. In other words, in addition to forcing them to work longer for fewer benefits, Cruz would place retirees at the mercy of a fickle stock market. Had Social Security been privatized during the career of a worker who retired near the end of the Bush Administration, that worker would have retired with less money in their privatized account than they would have if they’d simply kept their money between their mattress and box spring.

Ted Cruz bears a strong resemblance to Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels, a German politician and Reich Minister in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. Cruz might be around a long time in his upside down world which emphasizes aggressive nationalism coupled with racism.

@edgarblythe,
Interesting to go back in time and read this. It will probably be even more interesting to read when Cruz is up for reelection.

One must consider the climate, i.e., the Texas environment. There are Texans who criticize Ted Cruz, like you yourself, but too often these voices are drowned out to such an extent they cannot be heard.

Ted Cruz is so disliked by the Republican Party who find him intensely reckless that he would need more than Mike Lee to like him for him to get the GOP nomination. Even if some in the Republican Party warmed up to him again, the American public is unlikely to forget that Cruz is the granddaddy of get rid of ObamaCare. Also, by 2016, people will be so in love with ObamaCare it will take on the status like Social Security and Medicare, the Third Rail of Politics....touch it at your peril!

Being a right-wing extremist, Cruz ironically likes to label everyone who disagrees with him a Nazi. I think he may be "the pot" and he scares the hell out of me.

The Houston Chronicle tried to criticize him and kiss his ass at the same time, today.

@coluber2001,
Ted Cruz's chief agenda was to upset the balance in the American government, and it was an ignominious failure; a fiasco. He knew he could not get rid of the Affordable Health Care act, so his actions were craven, a cynical ploy to disrupt. Cruz's ego exhibits extreme symptoms of mad behavior; he has the potential to manipulate impressionable followers to engage in violent and dangerous behavior against others.
