The despicable attacks on Ted Cruz begin

Conservatives attack a Democrat’s political ideas.  Democrats, and their media lap-dogs, attack Conservatives.  The attacks on Ted Cruz are, as could be anticipated, despicable.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.

It’s entirely possible that Ted Cruz might not be presidential material.  That rests on whether people like what he stands for and whether they’re willing to give another neophyte a try.  (Clearly, they weren’t sufficiently burned by Obama’s amateur first term because, assuming solely for the sake of argument that the IRS-capades and the other scandals didn’t throw the election, they elected him for a second.)  For the Democrats and their media shills to destroy him based on a paisley bathrobe is the outside of enough.

    I know Ted Cruz, and have since he was Solicitor General of Texas. He is sharp, and very nice. Abrasive?  Only to the sort of people who get angry when confronted with facts that they can’t deny.  Ever met anyone like that? He is a movement Conservative, (which means he actually knows why he is a Conservative, and does not just parrot answers to questions.)and a Baptist, unless he has changed to one of those megachurches. That’s nearly as good as a Mormon, for strait laces. 
    I stand ready to support  him any time he announces. I told him five years ago that if he avoided being caught in bed with a live man or a dead woman, or a chicken of a=either persuasions, we’ll make him President.   (Assuming, of course, that there is still a country over which to preside.) You’ll like him, too, the more you know him.

    I trust Michael Adams. If he vouches for a man, I believe him.

    “… might not be presidential material?”  In a country that considers Michael Dukakis, anybody named Clinton, John McCain, Bareass Obama, John Kerry and Joe Biden to be “presidential material'” don’t worry about it.  By that standard your cat’s “presidential material.”   Cruz certainly qualifies, if he’s willing to lower his personal standards, that is.

    If you don’t like him, you are obviously racist, against Hispanics. Why are you so racist?

    JJ, you left AlGore off the list. (?)

    I should clarify that, right now, I have the greatest respect for Cruz and am very open-minded about having him as a Republican presidential candidate.  Sitting here, in 2013, however, I have three problems with Ted Cruz, all of which can be resolved with time’s passage:

    1.  As was Obama, Cruz will have been a one-term Senator when he runs.  Leadership can be innate or learned.  Obama didn’t learn leadership in the Senate and he’s not a leader now, he’s just a bully.  I know that Cruz is different.  For example, his legal career kept him close to the heart of politics and governance.  Still, I’d like to see more of him to get a sense of his leadership and management abilities.  Which leads me to issue No. 2:

    2.  I simply want to see more of Cruz as a national politician.  I want to see how he handles pressure, how effective he is at working with others, and whether he sticks his foot in his mouth, not according to MSM standards, but according to conservative standards, etc.  In other words, much as I like Cruz (and I like him a lot), I just want to know more about him.

    3.  Cruz went to the same law school as Obama did.  I’m sorry, but I have no respect for Harvard Law School grads after 1983 or so, because I’ve never had the privilege of meeting one from the post-1983 era whom I respected either as a lawyer or a person.  One of the things I have to be assured of is that Cruz is truly untainted by that pernicious institution.  So far, he seems above the HLS swamp, but I need a little time to become confident about that conclusion.

    That’s my only difficulty with him: law school.  I personally feel it should be a disqualification for public office.  Most lawyers are already way too impressed with themselves, we really don’t need them infesting the halls of power any more.  If we ever did.

    “. . . the outside of enough.”
    I appreciate a good turn of phrase.

    It’s obvious which one is more effective given the human race.
