I Like Ted Cruz For Wednesday Debate

From the start, Cruz and his political brain trust have divided the 2016 primary into four clear lanes: a moderate-establishment lane, in which he would not compete; a tea party lane, which he needed to dominate; an evangelical lane, where he had strong potential but little initial traction; and a libertarian lane, which began as the turf of Rand Paul.

“The players that were expected to be formidable in those lanes have not got the traction they had hoped,” Cruz said. “The most encouraging thing I would say is that I think three of the lanes are collapsing into one, which is the evangelical lane, the conservative tea party lane, and the libertarian lane are all collapsing into the conservative lane and we’re seeing those lanes unify behind our campaign.”

On this point, Cruz and the Republican establishment that hates him seem to agree. Cruz has yet to pop in the national and early-state polls but his foes and allies alike say he is poised to break through.

Is it safe to assume that Rand Paul gets your support?

Foes? He's got plenty besides democrats, there's the republican establishment. Boehner for example hates him. That also explains why Bush's support won't easily switch to Cruz.
Yeah, the independent vote. The one that's simply not sure if he wants freedom or tyranny - I can never figure that out. I know there are independents, I don't know why you are so quick to write them off for Cruz? Or do the dems have a new buy an independent vote program I don't know about?

Yeah, he's an American citizen, born in Canada. Trump is gonna look stupid more stupid if he tries going down that road.

I like Cruz, and really glad he's my senator.

Cruz is the least impressive on stage tonight.

What Cruz does in his private time is none of our business! I don't care if he master debates or not.

@2138359

His message of conservatism will scare the pants off big government lovers, that is for sure.
