Ted Cruz at Princeton: Creepy, Sometimes
Well Liked, and Exactly the Same

Daily Beast, by Patricia Murphy

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 8/20/2013 10:05:19 AM

When Craig Mazin first met his freshman roommate, Rafael Edward Cruz, he knew the 17-year-old Texan was not like other students at Princeton, or probably anywhere else for that matter. (Snip) By Mazin’s account and those of multiple members of Princeton’s class of 1992, the Ted Cruz who arrived as a college freshman in 1988 was nearly identical to the man who arrived in Washington as a freshman Republican senator in 2013: intelligent, confident, fixated on conservative political theory, and deeply polarizing.

The hit jobs will keep coming, hard and fast, as Cruz is the greatest threat the Dems face, by far. Scroll down for some positive comments.

Amazing! The media can find Cruz´s college roommate but they can´t find anyone who knew Obama in college.

I guess they´re not looking very hard.

Like they did with Romney, they will try to make TC (or any other Republican) an impossible alternative to the lovely, wonderful Democrat candidate, whomever that may be. Low information voters focus on likeability and puppies, and are easily distracted.

Because Kruz is a Conservative, he is labeled, "Creepy". If he was a liberal, he would be called, "Amazing".

I´ll bet the Criminal Liberal Media can even find every Cruz classmate all the way back to kindergarten.

The Left will always tell you who they are scared to death of.

No. 1 Debater in the country. I suspect that Cruz could mop the floor with any Lib he goes up against.

Cruz has held his beliefs all of his life, apparently, and he´s not moved an inch. That´s what we need right now.

And yea, the hit jobs will keep coming, but I predict that Cruz can stand up against anything that´s thrown at him. He had some pretty ugly stuff thrown at him here in Texas when he ran for the Senate, and you see what margin he was elected by.

To me, the fact that he hasn´t changed as a person since college is a big plus. I hate politicians who test the wind before taking a stand. I´m dismayed to read that Rand Paul´s people are behind the questioning of Cruz´s being eligible to run for President. None of the Democrats brought it up about Stinky and it bothers me that the back-stabbing has begun over non-policy issues.

I can imagine the phone call from one of Hillary´s toads to the DB: "hey--it might be a good time to start getting the word out about Cruz--he is a dangerous right-wing nutcase, you know. Talk to this guy Mazin--I happen to have his number--he is to be trusted. We think Cruz is ´creepy´--don´t you think that is good word to describe him? Bye--see you at the party tonight. Come over and I´ll introduce you to Hillary--but please don´t look her in the eye--she hates that."

Cruz is a gem whose points of view should be heard during the primaries. Do not let the MSM pick your candidate or Palinize your candidate. This is what is starting to happen. When are republicans and independents going to get this? The dems want another McCain, Romney. Let all of the points of view be heard.

The one sentence that struck me is this one:

“For others, it reveals a man of calcified thinking, dangerously impervious to facts, reality, and a changing world.”

Impervious to Changing Times. Sure. If only.

If only we still shamed unwed mothers instead of holding baby showers for them and putting their photos on the cover of People.

If only we hadn’t been PCed into Heather Has Two Mommies, Daddy Has a Roommate.

If only we hadn’t been “Diversified” into “Must Speak Spanish To Apply.”

If only we had leaders who understood that coming into the country is illegal and this the people who come are illegals, not undocumented aliens.

If only we hadn’t given in to Billy Bob’s dictum that Oral Sex isn’t really Sex.

If only we hadn’t given in to $20trillion in debt isn’t really a bad thing.

If only we understood that Islam isn’t really a religion, and therefore doesn’t deserve Constitutional protection.

If only . . .

it is kind of amusing. The democrats cannot challenge Senator Cruz´s eligibility because Obama is NOT eligible, either.

Senator Cruz has, accurately, claimed himself to be a citizen of the United States, but it will take a republican to ask Mr. Cruz if he is a Natural Born Citizen: Cruz should ´know´ since he´s a constitutional scholar.

As I understand it (I don´t listen to Hannity), Sean ask Senator Cruz, straight up, if he was eligible, and Cruz´s answer was,"I´ll leave it up to the people to decide that."

I don´t like that response for an answer.

The best, most effective weapon against this is LAUGHTER. Libs are so thin-skinned that if RNC, GOP leaders would get some really good, crafty writers to help them with some devastating comebacks.....it could be very very effective. As it is, the DB knows the RINOs are simply grinning at this article. Hopefully, friends of Cruz from his Princeton days will happily step up and call FOX for an interview opportunity.

He really, really scares them.

~~More than anyone I knew, Ted seemed to have arrived in college with a fully formed worldview,” Butler College colleague Erik Leitch said. “And what strikes me now, looking at him as an adult and hearing the things he´s saying, it seems like nothing has changed. Four years of an Ivy League education, Harvard Law, and years of life experience have altered nothing."~~

Imagine that? He has standards~ and they could not change him! Praise be!

Is Mazin still upset because Ted Cruz chose to have a different roommate after one year at Princeton. Didn´t seem to have a problem the remaining years with another intellectual who was No.2 nationally after Cruz was No. 1 on the debate circuit. Cruz and his 3 yr. roommate at Princeton continued to be roommates at Harvard.
Mazin´s sounds like he was a bit jealous of Cruz.

To read this is to giggle throughout at the code words inserted in the piece. Bravo #14. You get it. That should be the response to Oprah´s Trayvon is Emmett Till meme, anything that Sharpton says, Chuck Schumer, the President all of them. Derisive laughter in fact. Like Gertrude Stein allegedly said about Oakland, "There is no there, there." Embrace it, get called names and laugh some more. You can´t make this stuff up!

Our Tea Party played a major, major part in gettig Ted to the runoff. He won in our County in the Primary by the biggest margin of anywhere in the State. I heard him last night and this morning on the Radio and wondered if we really fired the first shot in breaking the bods of Centrist Government?

Stay focused and fight.

#1, one classmate of BO has written a number of articles, you can find them at American Thinker. As usual, Big Media never has shown an iota of interest in even questioning the wide expanse of mysterious emptiness in BO´s REAL biography.

#6, yes, the GOP has got to resolve the cannibalism going on within the Party, as this delights the Dem/Lefties.
Presidential aspirations must, MUST, be set aside for much more immediately urgent goals:
We must retain the House, get control of the Senate, and increase the number of governorships.

#8: good one!

Hillary started the "birther" thing in ´08.

#22, Hillary was raised in a "Republican" home.
At Wellesley, her radical Leftism was calcified; she wrote her senior thesis on Alinsky (something which we are not allowed to see).
Has her ideology changed?
How about BO´s? he apparently became radicalized early on, maybe on mama´s knee, or on Frank Marshall Davis´s...

We know that the leftwing Big Media will target any and every potential candidate whom they see as a threat to their goal of making sure BO et al accomplish the "complete transformation" of our Republic.

Simultaneously, they fawn over the "moderates", i.e., people whose beliefs can be tossed willy-nilly by the winds of opinion, unmoored by reasoned convictions.

Libertarians and liberal Republicans have been proposing a truce on social issues in order to be able to concentrate on fiscal issues, but there is no such thing as a truce on any issue with the left. Brendan Eich offered the left a truce on gay marriage. He talked about tolerance and diversity and he got his head handed to him.

An unlikely alliance is forming between conservatives and liberals rightly asking whether it makes sense that America has the highest incarceration rate in the world. One out of every 100 American adults is behind bars, according to The Washington Post. Besides the tremendous cost of housing an inmate in a maximum-security federal prison—pegged at around $33,000 per year—the sheer volume of the U.S. prison population warrants a closer look. Why are so many people behind bars?

There are things that people know, or think that they know, about Rahm Emanuel: He is voluble, tireless, notoriously profane. And yet, when I met him last month, all the stories hadn’t prepared me for his intensity in person. A conversation with Emanuel is a physical experience. When he has strong feelings about a subject—which is often—he frequently sits on the very edge of his chair, emphasizing his point through proximity. At one point, he waved his finger inches from my face, Lyndon Johnson–style. Emanuel’s forceful personality is especially at odds with the surprisingly Zen atmosphere of the mayoral offices

With waves of American college graduates about to hit the job market, it’s a good bet most of them don’t think of the controversial conservative author, Charles Murray, as their mentor. The W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and author of several books – including Coming Apart (about divided white America) and The Bell Curve (with Richard Herrnstein) – is hardly known as a warm and fuzzy job counselor. Yet, in The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead, a new primer for workplace newbies, Murray dispenses some of the best advice today’s overly coddled millennial grads haven’t yet heard. Related: The

Is it too farfetched to connect the dots between a brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy? I don’t think so. In his piece, Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, “The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Why does Hillary Clinton hate America? That is the question that should be on everyone’s mind as she embarks on a worldwide tour to plug her forthcoming memoir. Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

American public school students sick of the smaller portions and healthier offerings they get at lunch thanks to Michelle Obama´s anti-obesity initiatives are sounding off on social media. Just a month after school lunch participation saw the steepest drop on record following the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, students tired of going home hungry are making sure the first lady knows why. ´I´ll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch,´ tweeted one angry student. [Snip] The extremely negative reviews have over a million kids refusing to eat the offerings, an ironic result for legislation meant to combat

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

A female transgender student wants an apology from a North Carolina college for being detained by a security officer and sent home for using the women’s bathroom. The 22-year-old freshman, Andraya Williams, believes she was discriminated against during a March 19 incident at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C. because of her looks. The freshman said she was leaving the restroom and going to her social studies class when a female officer stopped her and requested her student ID, according to a statement released by the Transgender Law Center. The officer then laughed while asking the student if
