I LOVE that he remembers the role of our invasion of Iraq in getting Kadaffy to cough up his nukes and become pliant to us and that Hillary & Baraq enabled him to be overthrown and killed anyway , , ,

Cruz is actually smart and has a grasp of the issues. A rare quality in politicians.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign on Thursday found itself in rough but increasingly familiar territory. It wasn’t talking about policies or consistent conservatism. It was instead trying to explain why it had photoshopped a fake image of Marco Rubio shaking Barack Obama’s hand.

It’s a true saying in politics that if you are denying or explaining, you have a problem. By that standard, Ted Cruz may have a problem.

For months now, Mr. Cruz has run a focused and rigorous campaign. He marked out the voter groups he needed to win Iowa, and delivered targeted messages. He slipstreamed behind Donald Trump, siphoning off his voters. He’s been militantly on message, with the argument that he’s the only “consistent” conservative in the race.

All that discipline got pushed aside on Wednesday, when Mr. Cruz instead felt compelled to spend a long news conference defending against accusations of lies and dirty campaign tactics.

Most of the ensuing headlines were about Mr. Cruz’s “bring it on” response to a threatened Donald Trump lawsuit. But this overlooks what he spent most of the event doing—denying that his campaign had anything to do with fake Facebook pages or underhanded push polls.

This is a tough place to be three days out from a vital primary, and Donald Trump is surely grinning. Up or down in this race, Mr. Trump always has a megaphone, and for the past weeks he’s used it almost exclusively to blast one message: Ted Cruz is unethical. It’s a particularly rough charge because—unlike disputes over policy or records—accusations about character sometimes have a way of seeping into the voter conscience, and are harder to dispute. And they can snowball.

Mr. Cruz provided the opening for this with his campaign’s decision on Iowa caucus night to suggest to voters that Ben Carson was suspending his campaign, and to urge them to vote for him instead. Mr. Trump wanted Mr. Cruz disqualified for “fraud.” Dr. Carson accused him of “deceit” and “lies” and “dirty tricks.” Mr. Cruz blamed it on a “mix-up” and apologized.

Yet before the dust had settled, reports came out of a Cruz campaign mailer sent to Iowa voters. The outside contained giant red letters reading “VOTER VIOLATION” and the words “public record” and “further action needed.” Inside, the mailer warned recipients of “low expected voter turnout” in their area, claimed that their voting record might be publicized, and pushed them to caucus. The Iowa secretary of state, a Republican, blasted the Cruz campaign for misrepresenting his office and Iowa election law.

A new controversy has since sprouted in Ohio over another Cruz mailer. This envelope bears Mr. Cruz’s name, as well as big black letters reading: “Check Enclosed.” Inside there is a check, only it is made out to Mr. Cruz from the recipient—along with an appeal to make a contribution. Ohio Republican Chairman Matt Borges complained that the letter—with its suggestion of a government check—was “shady” and went “right up to the edge.”

Mr. Cruz’s problem is that these shenanigans have laid the groundwork for his campaign to be accused of far worse deeds in South Carolina. Mr. Trump used the most recent Republican debate to charge the Cruz campaign with orchestrating push-poll calls that trashed the other candidates. Recipients reported that the calls came courtesy of Remington Research, an outfit started by Mr. Cruz’s campaign manger.

The Rubio campaign meanwhile tagged the Cruz campaign with ginning up a fake Facebook page that falsely claimed popular South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy was switching his support from Mr. Rubio to Mr. Cruz.

These accusations were the subject of Mr. Cruz’s news conference Wednesday, in which he vehemently insisted his campaign had nothing to do with the Facebook page or the push-poll calls. (Remington has also denied it did the calls.)

Yet the theme is pulsing, and it got more fuel Thursday when the Rubio-Obama photoshop story broke. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler at first claimed the campaign would never use a photo that wasn’t authentic. Then he reversed and claimed that the Rubio campaign was “petulant” and “piddly” to even care about a fake photo. Which inspired a Twitter frenzy of people posting their own photoshopped pictures of Mr. Cruz hugging Mr. Obama and various unsavory characters—to make a point.

Mr. Gowdy, a former prosecutor who is very popular in the state, was so appalled that he cut a video. “My fellow South Carolinians do not mind tough politics, but it has to be fair, it has to be accurate—the truth matters.” He lambasted the photoshopping.

Mr. Cruz used his Thursday presser to score the other campaigns for leveling some of their accusations with “no evidence,” and suggested it was they who were playing out of bounds. In what’s proving a low-tactic campaign year, he may have a point. His problem is that memes—right or wrong—have a way of attaching to, and then defining, campaigns. And right now, there is only one Republican defending against the “dirty tricks” line.

Fiorina's endorsement could prove useful, especially if she continues as a surrogate speaker for Cruz and McCain's daughter has the regular gig on FOX's Outnumbered.

Crafty,

Good video of Cruz (in previous post) answering the left wing verbal terrorists. 

Notice how the MSM has totally ignored his great responses (to my knowledge) but are happy to report Donald's?   Donald could learn from this - but we now know he never does.

https://www.facebook.com/tedcruzpage/videos/10153996328207464/?pnref=story

His opponent, a master of winning these types of exchanges, walked right into a baited trap.

No tweets (at this point) from DT since this one - that didn't fly:

"I didn't start the fight with Lyin'Ted Cruz over the GQ cover pic of Melania, he did. He knew the PAC was putting it out - hence, Lyin' Ted!"

No Donald.  By law, Cruz didn't coordinate the Pac's ad and he disavowed it immediately after.  He is the liar unless he has evidence of a campaign felony to bring forward.  His sudden silence answers that. The original ad would have gone unnoticed.  It was Trump who drew attention to it.  And it wasn't an attack; it was her proud work product - the cover of a major magazine.

Ted's points are spot on.  Real men don't do this, threaten to attack wives.

On radio, it sounded like a very carefully worded press release attack.  On video, you could see he was most certainly not reading this but emotionally and methodically making the case.

He landed a punch with his scared to debate him accusation too, drawing the contest back to issues and readiness.  Cruz needs to elevate that challenge.  There is no doubt now that Trump fears being in an issues debate, one on one, with Cruz right now and plans to never do that.

Trump illustrates his shallowness with the side by side wife comparison series.  Trump's third wife looks like a better supermodel, a dream girl, and Heidi Cruz looks like a First Lady.

https://pjmedia.com/spengler/2016/03/25/ted-cruz-our-last-best-hope/

America needs something better than a feedback loop for popular resentment. We need a real leader. America's elite is arrogant and corrupt, but the state of the American people is just as alarming. America had 90% adult literacy in 1790, when only half of Englishmen and a fifth of Spaniards and Italians could sign their names. We had the best educated, most motivated, and healthiest workforce in the world by an overwhelming margin.

Now Americans aged 16 to 24 rank at the bottom of a 22-country evaluation of numeracy, literacy, and technological problem-solving.

Poor student performance should be no surprise: America's family structure is falling apart. Nearly 30% of non-Hispanic white children are born out of wedlock, as well as 53% of Hispanics and 73% of African-Americans. When Reagan took office, 18% of all American births were to unmarried mothers. By 2014 the figure was above 40%.

Catch-up ball doesn't begin to describe our predicament. We need nothing short of a great national turnaround. There are two Republican candidates who made clear from the outset that it isn't business as usual -- Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Another Romney wouldn't be relevant.

Our elites, to be sure, have sold us down the river. There's unlimited capital for investors to buy foreclosed homes, while half of Americans can't raise a down payment or qualify for a home mortgage. The Pentagon and the defense contractors slated a trillion dollars for the F-35, the biggest lemon in the history of military aviation, crowding out every other acquisition program in the military. Our tech companies have become a conspiracy to suppress innovation, managed by patent trolls instead of engineers. The financial industry ran the biggest scam in history, the subprime bubble of the 2000s, and the Obama administration hasn't sent a single miscreant to jail (it just slapped multi-billion dollar fines on the banks' stockholders, that is, your pension fund or 401k). The Clintons are a criminal enterprise, as Peter Schweizer showed in his book Clinton Cash. The foreign policy establishment treated the world like a giant social experiment and wasted blood and treasure to make the world safe for democracy.

The result is the most corrupt and cartelized economy in American history. For the first time since numbers were kept, new business has contributed next to nothing to employment recovery since 2009, as I reported here March 2. But Donald Trump encourages magical thinking. Repeating, "We're going to make America great again" by kicking out Mexican illegals and repatriating jobs from China is nonsense.

Our elites are rotten, but the people are hurting and confused. After the generation of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, America has done a terrible job of forming elites. But we still need leaders who can uplift us, teach us, and inspire us. Self-educated outsiders like Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan have been our ablest leaders, not the valedictorians of Harvard or Yale. Lincoln might have been self-educated, but he was the best thinker of his generation. Reagan also was self-taught, but he had a broad and detailed grasp of foreign policy and understood Robert Mundell's supply-side economics early on. They were also profoundly good men.



==========================================
Ted Cruz is the a gifted outsider with unique leadership capacities. He has a brilliant grasp of Constitutional law from his service as Texas' solicitor general, a granular understanding of business economics from his service at the Federal Trade Commission, and a clear vision of what America should and shouldn't do in foreign policy. He was an academic superstar at Ivy League universities but never let his success flatter him into complacency. He has deep religious conviction. He also has the will to lead. It's not surprising he isn't popular among his Senate colleagues: if Cruz is elected president, it will shut down a corrupt and cozy game. He has the brains to understand the problem and the guts to clear the obstacles to a solution.

Donald Trump's popularity rests on his knack for handling politics as reality television. Americans always have distrusted elites, but today's popular culture takes this to a pathological extreme. We find it oppressive to admire anything that is better than us. Instead, we identify with what is like us. That's why we listen to singers who sound like an average drunk with a karaoke machine instead of Frank Sinatra. That's why reality TV is so popular. Everybody gets to be a star. We like to watch ourselves in the mirror. This blend of narcissism and resentment is toxic. Trump's bling-and-babes lifestyle has become a national paradigm for success. We're not Trump's constituents; we're a virtual posse.

We keep hearing that Trump is a businessman who will "get things done." That is utterly wrong: the most successful businessmen are very good at very limited number of things. Great entrepreneurs, as George Gilder wrote, are the kind of people who sit up all night thinking of better garbage routes. Trump is not even a particularly successful entrepreneur; if he had put the $100 million he inherited in 1978 into an index fund, he'd have twice as much money today. As a casino investor, he doesn't compare to Sheldon Adelson, who came from poverty and now has ten times Trump's wealth. In fact, Trump has the worst possible kind of background for a president: as the child of wealth running a private company, he is used to saying "Jump," and having his lackeys say, "How long should I stay in the air?"

Trump doesn't read. He brags about his own ignorance. Journalist Michael d'Antonio interviewed Trump at his New York home and told a German newspaper:

"What I noticed immediately in my first visit was that there were no books," says D'Antonio. "A huge palace and not a single book." He asked Trump whether there was a book that had influenced him. "I would love to read," Trump replied. "I've had many best sellers, as you know, and 'The Art of the Deal' was one of the biggest-selling books of all time." Soon Trump was talking about "The Apprentice." Trump called it "the No. 1 show on television," a reality TV show in which, in 14 seasons, he played himself and humiliated candidates vying for the privilege of a job within his company. In the interview, Trump spent what seemed like an eternity talking about how fabulous and successful he is, but he didn't name a single book that he hadn't written.
"Trump doesn't read," D'Antonio says in the restaurant. "He hasn't absorbed anything serious and profound about American society since his college days. And to be honest, I don't even think he read in college." When Trump was asked who his foreign policy advisers were, he replied: "Well, I watch the shows." He was referring to political talk shows on TV.

Trump voters may not read, either, but they should want their president to know something about the problems he proposes to address.
====================

Trump is horribly wrong about big issues. America's economic problems are not due to Mexican immigrants or Chinese imports, as I wrote in this space last July. I give him credit for punching through the "Islam-is-a-religion-of-peace" idiocy peddled by George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. A plurality of Americans (46% to 40%) support his proposed ban on Muslim immigration. That's the wrong way to go about it; the right way is to treat the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, as Cruz proposes, and then roll up its supporters. I also give Trump credit for lambasting the awful Iran nuclear deal earlier this week at the AIPAC conference. Cruz did it a lot better.

Unless Hitler or Goebbels were to rise from the grave and run for president, I will not vote for Hillary Clinton; in a Trump-Clinton race, I will vote for Trump without a second's hesitation. One can't exclude the possibility that Trump might be a good president; he knows little and makes things up as he goes along, and might conceivably stumble on good solutions. But it is much more likely that he will preside over America's continuing decline while saturating us with self-consoling rhetoric.

We are in deep trouble. We need a president who can lead us out of our economic and moral slump. I fear that Ted Cruz is our last, best hope before we follow former superpowers like Britain down the slippery slope to national mediocrity.

This WSJ editorial fails to note that the charge is made by a Super PAC, not by Cruz.  Shame, WSJ!

March 31, 2016 7:08 p.m. ET
301 COMMENTS

Ted Cruz keeps saying he wants to unite the Republican Party’s factions to defeat Donald Trump. But you wouldn’t know it from his campaign in Wisconsin, where his Super Pac is aiming its fire at John Kasich.

Exhibit A is the false ad that the Super Pac Trusted Leadership is running nonstop in Wisconsin that accuses Mr. Kasich of being funded by liberal baron George Soros. “Millionaires working side by side with George Soros are bankrolling [Kasich’s] super PAC,” the ad says as the text “Hundreds of thousands of dollars from George Soros” flashes on the screen.

This claim is as dishonest as Mr. Trump’s charge that the Texas Senator is owned by Goldman Sachs because his wife worked for the New York bank. Mr. Soros hasn’t donated a penny to the Kasich campaign. The alleged “millionaires” bankrolling the governor are Stanley Druckenmiller, who helped manage Mr. Soros’s Quantum Fund between 1988 and 2000, and former Soros Fund Management chief investment officer Scott Bessent, who left the fund last year.

According to the Federal Election Commission, Mr. Druckenmiller has contributed $450,000 to the Kasich Super Pac New Day for America. Mr. Bessent has chipped in $200,000. The implication of the ad is that both businessmen are liberal by their Soros association, as if all Americans should be accountable for their employer’s politics.

Messrs. Druckenmiller and Bessent have donated mainly to GOP candidates, reflecting their belief in free-market policies. Mr. Druckenmiller donated $103,375 to the Jeb Bush Super Pac Right to Rise USA and $123,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee last year.

The Cruz ad is also counterproductive if he wants to win the nomination at the GOP convention—or the Presidency in November. The Real Clear Politics average shows Mr. Cruz running three points ahead of Mr. Trump and leading Mr. Kasich by 14 points in Wisconsin. Instead of whacking Mr. Kasich, the Texan should target Mr. Trump so the New Yorker finishes third. This would deny Mr. Trump more delegates and would hurt his narrative that his nomination is inevitable.

Mr. Cruz also needs Mr. Kasich to peel away delegates from Mr. Trump in the eastern primaries later this month where the Texan is often third in the polls. Mr. Cruz finished a distant fourth behind Marco Rubio and Mr. Kasich in Massachusetts and Vermont, and outside the Maine caucuses he hasn’t won more than 12% of the vote anywhere in the Northeast.

Mr. Cruz wants to force Mr. Kasich out of the race so the Texan is the only alternative to Mr. Trump. That’s also why he attacked Marco Rubio in Florida, where Mr. Cruz had no chance of winning. But he shouldn’t overestimate his appeal. Wisconsin Republicans may give him a victory to stop Mr. Trump, but millions are doing it while holding their nose. The best argument Mr. Trump still has, amid his many mistakes, is that Mr. Cruz is emerging as his main opponent.

Mr. Cruz isn’t likely to get enough delegates to win the nomination on the first ballot at the Cleveland convention, so he will need the help of many of the Republicans his campaign has done so much to alienate the last two years. His smear of John Kasich underscores the doubts that he’s too divisive to win in November.

Ted Cruz used the "New York Values' pejorative in Iowa against Trump.  Resenting the east coast power, urbanites and country club Republicans is something that resonated with the 27% furthest right of the furthest right that go to Iowa caucuses, enough to win by a smidgen in a very crowded field.  Not helpful now.

At the time I said that was a mistake.  Checking the record I see that bth Bret Stephens and ccp made that observation first:  http://dogbrothers.com/phpBB2/index.php?topic=2408.msg93613#msg93613

My criticism has been that Cruz is running for first place in the most conservative lane (of which I am a member) instead of running for President.  Saying things like 'New York values', or just picturing Rubio with Dick Durbin or Chuck Schumer are red meat to conservatives but doesn't mean a thing to the middle who you also need to win. 

Reagan won the middle and united the party by defeating the left, not by attacking the RINOs.

Now Cruz desperately needs Republican votes in New York, and he needs to unite the center and the near right with the far right in order to win. 

The strategies he used to get this far worked, but some of his tactics were mistakes. 

His background coming into this was to argue strict constitutionalism to people who should be experts on that (Supreme Court Justices), and to win from the right in a state that is perhaps furthest to the right.  What he is trying to do now, taking his message to NY Republicans and to the public is something he has never attempted before.  I wish him the best.

On perhaps the defining issue of the 2016 Republican primary, Senator Ted Cruz falls well to the right of Ronald Reagan, who supported granting legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants.

He opposes abortion even in cases of rape and incest, and has called for a federal amendment that would allow states to avoid performing or recognizing same-sex marriages.

He wants to return to the gold standard, abolish the Internal Revenue Service and create a tax structure simple enough for Americans to file on postcards.

He has criticized Donald J. Trump on deportation policy. From the right.

Throughout his Senate career, Republican opponents have cast Mr. Cruz as a master of the ill-considered — a “wacko bird,” as Senator John McCain of Arizona once called him — whose seemingly reckless pursuits were thought to place him well outside the mainstream.

Yet a close reading of Mr. Cruz’s policy prescriptions, influences and writings over two decades, combined with interviews with conservative intellectual leaders and Cruz allies, suggest two powerful truths about the man who might yet assume the mantle of modern conservatism.

He would be the most conservative presidential nominee in at least a half-century, perhaps to the right of Barry Goldwater, testing the electoral limits of a personal ideology he has forged meticulously since adolescence.

And he has, more effectively than almost any politician of his generation, anticipated the rightward tilt of the Republican Party of today, grasping its conservatism even as colleagues dismissed him as a fringe figure.

Now, even Mr. Cruz’s staunchest Republican enemies tend to criticize him most forcefully on tactics — lamenting his leading role in the 2013 government shutdown, for instance — but not on substance, where they have generally arrived at equivalent positions.

“Nobody has been more assiduous than Cruz at staying on the same page as the conservative base of the Republican Party,” said Ramesh Ponnuru, a conservative author and senior editor of National Review, who first met Mr. Cruz when they were students at Princeton University. “That said, it was also the man meeting the moment. He was always a constitutionalist conservative, and then constitutionalism became cool among conservatives.”

There have at times been perceptible shifts from Mr. Cruz during the campaign, in both tone and substance, coaxed by the resonance of Mr. Trump’s populist anger and hard-line positions on trade and immigration.

But at its core, Mr. Cruz’s brand of conservatism is the product of decades of careful study and manifest intellectual firepower, fusing a host of historical strands into what he has called “opportunity conservatism.”

As a teenager, growing up in Houston, he earned money delivering speeches on Friedrich A. Hayek and Ludwig von Mises, expounding on free-market principles at Rotary and Kiwanis clubs.

The epigraph for his senior thesis at Princeton, which focused on states’ rights and the Ninth and 10th Amendments, quoted James Madison: “You must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.”

When he captured the Republican nomination in his 2012 Senate race, Mr. Cruz said he was “walking in Uncle Milton’s footsteps,” to honor the 100th birthday of the economist Milton Friedman.

He is fond of invoking Mr. Reagan’s Cold War dictum (“We win, they lose”), Margaret Thatcher’s dismissal of socialism (“The problem with socialism is, eventually you run out of other people’s money”), and even, at times, President John F. Kennedy.

“I intend to have in the office of president what J.F.K. used to refer to as ‘vigaaaahhh’ in defending the Constitution,” Mr. Cruz, now 45, told voters in Iowa in January.

Some citations are more familiar to conservative audiences than others.

On economic policy, he has at moments turned to Ayn Rand, the libertarian heroine lionized by the right, and John Rawls, the liberal political philosopher who argued for a compact protecting the “least advantaged.”

References to Mr. Rawls have dwindled since Mr. Cruz began his presidential candidacy last year. “I don’t think Rawls focus-groups in Iowa,” Mr. Ponnuru joked.


It is clear that Mr. Cruz, whose campaign did not make him available for an interview, is most animated by constitutional fights over what he views as overreach by the federal government, particularly on matters of religion. He speaks often of his triumphs as solicitor general of Texas, which included the successful defense of the state’s right to display a Ten Commandments monument at the Capitol.

He is a creature of the Supreme Court, counting Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist as a former boss and Justice Antonin Scalia as a friend whose strict constructionist views helped shape his own.


And arguing last year against a federal ban on marijuana — despite his personal opposition to marijuana legalization at the state level — Mr. Cruz recited Justice Louis D. Brandeis’s belief in the states’ role as “laboratories of democracy.”

Indeed, conservative thinkers have sensed in Mr. Cruz an array of less likely forebears: the faith-focused morality of Jimmy Carter or George W. Bush; President Obama’s disdain for Beltway think-tank consensus; the fictional exploits of Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart.

“There’s a little bit of ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,’” said Peter D. Feaver, a national security strategist under Mr. Bush and a political-science professor at Duke University. “The, ‘I’m going to pursue this even if everyone else is mad at me because this is right.’”

Mr. Cruz seems to take uncommon pride in communicating uncomfortable policy positions to potentially hostile audiences. Mr. Ponnuru likened Mr. Cruz’s opposition to ethanol subsidies in Iowa — once considered heretical in a presidential primary — to Mr. Goldwater’s unpopular suggestion in 1964, while campaigning in Tennessee, that the Tennessee Valley Authority should be sold.

On matters of foreign policy, Mr. Cruz is viewed much more warily by mainstream Republicans. His pre-Senate career dealt little with international affairs, many say, and his first term has contained some notable shifts.

Mr. Cruz entered the Senate in 2013 as part of the Tea Party wave, brandishing a libertarian streak that became more pronounced after revelations of government surveillance tactics, courtesy of Edward J. Snowden.

But in the years since, as the national dialogue has grown more consumed by security threats like the Islamic State, Mr. Cruz has recalibrated considerably, leaving an impression among some conservative thinkers that he is merely groping for the median position of the base.

Most notable during the campaign has been his pledge to “carpet-bomb ISIS into oblivion,” which has earned a rebuke from military leaders who define the term specifically as the blanket bombing of even civilian areas. Mr. Cruz has argued his iteration can be more targeted.

“He means an overwhelming air campaign,” his longtime national security adviser, Victoria Coates, clarified in an interview.

Peter Wehner, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center who served under Mr. Reagan and Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, said Mr. Cruz had been “a little hard to find on the spectrum” of conservative foreign policy.

“The latest incarnation for him is a sort of realist school of overwhelming military force, but he’s constantly criticizing nation-building,” Mr. Wehner said. “I have a feeling he’s more of an amateur in that area.”

The introduction of a national security team last month failed to inspire universal confidence: While the list included some well-respected members of the Reagan and Bush administrations, it also had Frank Gaffney Jr., viewed by many as a fringe conspiracy theorist who has suggested that President Obama is Muslim.

“Being critical of Frank is a cottage industry,” said Ms. Coates, whose own résumé — she is better known as an art historian — has been questioned. “The fact of the matter is, he has been one of the few fearless voices speaking out against the problems of radical Islam.”

Other concerns are more semantic. Mr. Cruz has been criticized for appearing to use “neo-con” as a pejorative, and for characterizing his foreign policy views as falling “somewhere in between” two polar extremes: the libertarianism of Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and the hawkishness of Mr. McCain or Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

He speaks often of Reagan-style “peace through strength,” reminding crowds that the largest country Mr. Reagan invaded was Grenada.

But some conservative foreign policy experts see a crucial difference, implicit in a February speech outlining his military plans in South Carolina.

“Cruz’s defense speech was couched as being Reaganite, with plans to increase military spending substantially,” said Gary J. Schmitt, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. “But the caveat was getting the economy fixed first. Reagan increased defense spending even while deficits soared.”

Mr. Wehner worried generally that Mr. Cruz had displayed an “intellectual rigidity” that afforded him little latitude to adapt.

Mr. Cruz has long trumpeted his “consistent conservative” credentials as a strength, proudly recalling his teenage days as part of a team of students who toured event spaces in Texas and wrote out the Constitution on easels.

Robert P. George, his mentor and thesis adviser at Princeton, said that he was most struck by “the consistency from the time when he was a student to now.” Many conservatives cite Madison and Tocqueville, he said, but “Ted has actually read them.”

Mr. George’s most memorable lesson was in humility. In his book, Mr. Cruz writes of receiving a graded paper from Mr. George, seeing a “C+” on a folded corner of the first page and panicking. “With white knuckles, I folded the corner over,” he wrote, “and on the front was written, ‘Just kidding! A.’”

Mr. George’s goal was simple. “I thought he should at least have a few moments’ experience,” he said, “of not being the smartest guy in the class.”

There is something about liberal writers that they feel compelled to lie in the first sentence.

"Ronald Reagan, who supported granting legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants."

No.  Reagan agreed to legal status in exchange for ..... , ..... , and ..... that all didn't happen.  That doesn't imply he would favor open borders today after being taken to the cleaners earlier and while we are under attack by terrorists and ISIS is building camps just off our southern border.

Continuing into the article:

"Throughout his Senate career, Republican opponents have cast Mr. Cruz as a master of the ill-considered — a “wacko bird,” as Senator John McCain of Arizona once called him — whose seemingly reckless pursuits were thought to place him well outside the mainstream."

It was only the Senate's wacko birds that called him a wacko bird.  The issue at hand was to fund a Democrat program that was unconstitutional by any fair reading of the law and the constitution and that they were elected to de-fund.  Wacko bird is political term for anyone who still supports limited government this long after the country abandoned that principle.

Cruz's Presidential view of abortion, like Rubio is that it is a matter for the states - that in the most restrictive states would all allow exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother.

Cruz's view on marriage is that a man and a woman become a husband and wife, OMG, exactly what both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton believed as recently as 2010.  It was the Clinton administration support of DOMA that made it a federal issue.

"Carpet bomb ISIS into oblivion".  “He means an overwhelming air campaign,” his longtime national security adviser, Victoria Coates, clarified in an interview.  

That's how I took it too.  Nothing is his personality makes you think he will skip intelligence briefings or ignore the best advice of his military strategists while in office, like his predecessor many times did at our peril.

"He wants to...abolish the Internal Revenue Service and create a tax structure simple enough for Americans to file on postcards."

I wonder if POTH readers find that offensive...

"He wants to return to the gold standard [and abolish the IRS]"

I don't think that means abolish the Federal Reserve, like some want to do and as the sentence seems intended to portray.  Every competent economist would put gold prominently in their "basket of goods' for measuring and targeting the value of the dollar.

"As a teenager, growing up in Houston, he earned money delivering speeches on Friedrich A. Hayek and Ludwig von Mises, expounding on free-market principles at Rotary and Kiwanis clubs."

This is also quite good news.  I have not heard this side of him and guessed that he was weaker than some at explaining the value of free market economics.

" counting Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist as a former boss and Justice Antonin Scalia as a friend whose strict constructionist views helped shape his own."

That's not really out of the mainstream, don't they all still have to take an oath to be 'strict constitutionalists' while in office?

"...Mr. Cruz’s opposition to ethanol subsidies in Iowa..."  
G M, Re: Sen.Ted Cruz takes on King Corn Ethanol, January 27, 2016:
"Integrity."

Interesting that Iowans respected that.  Not to cut their subsidy alone, but to put an end to all crony government.

My complaint of Cruz so far is that he has aimed his campaign entirely at people who already agree with him.  He has no experience moving a politically divided state to the right on policy.  But he has the benefit of timing and of facts on the ground.  We have just tried 10 years of a leftist policy direction and it failed to accomplish anything positive the leftists were promising.

It will be interesting to see how Cruz can adapt to a general election race.  I fear he will be painted as too far to the right before he really can start.  I'm sure that is the point of pieces like this, putting an extremist spin on quite reasonable positions.  His policies are the most likely to succeed, if tried, of any the remaining candidates.

Hugh Hewitt on Meet the Press Sunday called for a unity ticket of Cruz-Trump, Ted Cruz and the smarter Trump, his daughter Ivanka, that is.  Try running the war against women campaign against her!

There is merit to this.  I confess to being disappointed with Cruz's lack of crisp, deft answers to predictable left wing attacks. 

Also, someone asked "What state will Cruz win that Romney did not?"  This is a fair question.

Rudy Giuliani says that the EDC and her running dogs in the Pravda will know how to hit simple fast balls like Cruz but will be thrown off stride by Trump's unpredictability and that is why he is supporting Trump.

I don't support Trump but Giuliani is partly right on this.  

Not that NY matters but Cruz took a distant third.  86% of NY Republicans don't want the conservati e alternative to Trump.  He couldn't find a district he could win.  New York Values as a slur sounded good to the furthest right of the Iowa GOP, meanwhile we hear no realistic plan about how he would implement his tax plan or turn around this economy.

Cruz got into a fight on radio with Sean Hannity yesterday.  It was ugly and both were wrong.  Cruz won't admit he can't get to 1237 before the convention and keeps repeating his canned line like they accused Rubio of doing.  Hannity is being blockheaded about what can or should happen in a convention.  If you are short of that threshold, you are in the same boat as everyone else short of that threshold. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/04/19/ted_cruz_lectures_hannity_this_notion_of_voterless_elections_is_nonsense.html

All we have done since the first debate is drive people away and make Hillary and Obama seem reasonable.

Ted Cruz: The Mullahs and Their Missiles

Washington — ON Monday, the Iranian military’s deputy chief of staff announced that the Islamic Republic had successfully tested yet another ballistic missile — this time, a high-precision midrange weapon with a reported reach of 2,000 kilometers, or 1,250 miles, and with a degree of accuracy that he claimed to be “without any error.” If these statements are true, the entire Middle East, including Israel, is within the reach of the mullahs’ missiles.

It was not revealed if this missile had its genocidal intent actually inscribed on it, as other missiles recently tested by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps have — with the inscription in Hebrew “Israel should be erased from the map.” But it hardly matters. The mullahs’ objectives are plain enough for anyone with eyes to see: The Iranian regime is continuing its determined march toward not only a nuclear weapon, but also the means to launch it, first against Israel and then against the United States.

This reality makes all the more inexplicable President Obama’s steadfast faith that, since the election of President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, Iran has been charting a “more moderate course” to the detriment of the old-time hard-liners, and that Mr. Rouhani and his administration would be reliable partners in negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.

To give credit where credit is due, the regime in Tehran has been frank and open about its continued hostility toward America and Israel. In the months since the Obama administration and the other permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany (the group commonly referred to as the “P5 + 1”) concluded the deal with Iran called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Revolutionary Guards have tested at least four ballistic missiles. Flush with the $100 billion they claim to be getting in assets unfrozen under the deal, the mullahs have gone on a spending spree, finally purchasing, among other things, the Russian S-300 missile system, which is now being delivered to them.

Who can forget the searing images of American sailors on their knees with guns pointed at their heads by our “moderate” partners this past January? Just last week, in the course of receiving an official delegation from the Gaza-based militant movement Palestinian Islamic Jihad — which the State Department designated a terrorist group in 1997, for its efforts to destroy Israel — the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, reiterated that the prime directive of the Islamic Republic remains, as it has been since 1979, to wage war against the United States and Israel.

On Saturday, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, that trusted counterpart to Secretary of State John Kerry, publicly affirmed to the Iranian Parliament that the same supreme leader who had just said doing harm to America and Israel was his key objective remains the ultimate arbiter of Iranian foreign policy. And as a final reminder of how the Islamic Republic conducts itself toward America, on Monday Amir Hekmati, a former United States Marine, sued the government of Iran for the brutal torture inflicted on him over the course of more than four years of arbitrary detention by Tehran.

Enough. The mullahs’ policy is, by their own admission, unchanged. It is the same one that inspired the so-called revolutionaries of 1979 to take 52 Americans as hostages for 444 days, and motivated murderous attacks on Israelis and Americans from Buenos Aires to Beirut to Baghdad over the subsequent decades. The only thing that is changing now is the potential scale of this violence, as they seek to replace truck bombs and roadside explosive devices with the most destructive weapons on the planet and the means to deliver them.

The sensible thing to do now is to face this reality, however unpleasant it may be, and do what we can to bolster our defenses and those of our allies.

As a first step, I look forward to working with my congressional colleagues this week and in coming months to make sure that President Obama’s failure to sufficiently fund Israel’s missile defense programs in his latest budget request is reversed. Shockingly, even after admitting that the nuclear deal with Iran places Israel in greater danger and making assurances that support for the Jewish state would be increased, the president could not find a single dollar to put toward procurement for the David’s Sling or Arrow-3 missile defense systems, which are being jointly developed by the United States and Israel.

We have all been impressed by the success of Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system, which targets short-range rockets and was implemented with the generous assistance of American taxpayers. But as the recent Iranian medium-range missile test proves, rockets fired from Gaza are not the only threat Israel faces.

Providentially, David’s Sling, which guards against such ballistic missiles, is ready to go online this year; it will be followed by the Arrow-3 system to protect the Jewish state from longer-range weapons. Rather than starving these programs, Congress should seize this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to Israel’s security and so to our own. That would send the leaders of the Islamic Republic an unmistakable signal that there are at least some in Washington who still take them at their word, and will act accordingly.
