Scott Walker is a good candidate, mild mannered but somehow able to quell the most vicious unionists' tactics.
I assumed Ted Cruz couldn't win because he is so principled and appears to do what he says he'll do.
But after hearing his speech today, I'm wondering if perhaps he can win.
Beck ran down an impressive list of accomplishments Cruz has achieved.
Naturally critics, including Fox, have leaped to their keyboards to discredit Cruz on several levels: he wasn't born in the US, his mother being an American citizen who gave birth to him in Canada, and he's only been a Senator for three years, as if his "inexperience" is a detraction rather than an enhancement.
We don't even want to mention the qualifications of Barack Hussein Obama, who served a couple years in the Senate before assuming his glorious role as Dear Leader.
From Wikipedia, here are some of Cruz's achievements:
Cruz graduated cum laude from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1992. While at Princeton, he competed for the American Whig-Cliosophic Society's Debate Panel and won the top speaker award at both the 1992 U.S. National Debating Championship and the 1992 North American Debating Championship. In 1992, he was named U.S. National Speaker of the Year and Team of the Year (with his debate partner, David Panton). Cruz was also a semi-finalist at the 1995 World Universities Debating Championship, making him Princeton’s highest-ranked debater at the championship. Princeton's debate team later named their annual novice championship after Cruz.[SNIP]
After graduating from Princeton, Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor degree. While at Harvard Law, Cruz was a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, and executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review. Referring to Cruz's time as a student at Harvard Law, Professor Alan Dershowitz said, "Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant." At Harvard Law, Cruz was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics.This man is smart and politically savvy, proven by his track record (unlike Barack Obama's missing track record); let's hope he gets the support he needs and doesn't make some of the typical stupid mistakes Republicans often make.
It's not that Democrats don't make stupid mistakes: they do, some horrendous. It's just a matter of who gets the attention about their stupid mistakes, whether made in one of the 57 states in the US or abroad.
