Freshman Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is running for President. Good. We need a conservative with the chutzpah of Obama but with genuine mental dexterity. The predatory media has already painted the target on Cruz’s post office mug shot and started the attack. Also Good. The more the media beat him up, the more the regular Joe will be drawn to hear him.
I’ve heard several news sources say he can’t win. Neither could Seabiscuit or the 1980 American Olympic Hockey Team So why should Cruz bother?
If I recall correctly, Bill Clinton couldn’t win either, since his opponent George H. W. Bush at one point during the first Gulf War, had a near 90 percent approval rating. Clinton got the nomination without much of a fight, since few even in his own party thought he had a prayer. Of course that hayseed Lincoln had no chance against Stephen Douglass either.
Ive seen a couple so called analysts get pretty hot under the collar about Cruz’s decision to run. If he’s so unlikely a victor, why are they so animated? Of course the odds are against Cruz simply from a mathematical point of view, but why the indignation? Some in the new media who claim the mantel of conservatism, also belittle his effort.
What are they afraid of?
What is it they know that they are not sharing?
They know that Americans are basically a conservative, law respecting and abiding people who are not to be taken for granted. They know that a conservative CAN win despite their indignation to the contrary. They know it and it scares the hell out of them that the peasantry can take a shot at retrieving power and succeed. Sure its tough, what with the cheating and the back stabbing and all that electioneering but it IS possible.
A Ted Cruz run will necessarily force other Republican candidates’ campaigns to lean right. The Cruz dynamism makes RINOs like Christie and JEB Bush look slow- witted, and angry by comparison mostly because they are.
Don’t get me wrong. I have not yet begun to trust Ted Cruz. however it is great thing that he is running. There is no reason on earth why anyone should be nominated because they deserve it , because its their turn or because the NY liberal media has already crowned them. There needs to be a good intelligent cleansing fight over the issues . The fight needs to be driven to the right so it can take place in a lane of the belief in honor, country and law and order for a change and Cruz is the man for that job.
