Skip to comments.Ted Cruz will never be president: Tea Party bully will never win a national election. Bank on it
Posted on 05/01/2013 6:22:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
During the 2012 election cycle I occasionally ran stories declaring that various Republicans being touted as White House material will never be president. Sarah Palin after her narcissistic Gabby Giffords meltdown; Newt Gingrich early in his race-baiting campaign; Mitt Romney after his British Olympics screw-up.
I batted 1.000 for that cycle, but it was easy. In 2016, Republicans wont be facing a Democratic incumbent, so somebody has a shot. I recently wrote that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will never be president, due to his out-of-control anger issues, but candidly, I think thats my riskiest one yet.
I feel no risk in stating unequivocally that despite the delusions of his Senate staffers and supporters, who told the National Reviews Robert Costa that they expect him to run in 2016, far-right Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will never be president. Costa is a good reporter with excellent sources; its a good story. Im not doubting its veracity. So far hes been more circumspect about his 2016 plans than Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, which some people attributed to questions about his eligibility for the presidency (he was born in Canada but his mother was a U.S. citizen). The story states clearly that Cruzs legal advisers say hed have no problem with eligibility. So there are unlikely to be Cruz birthers; Democrats dont do xenophobia and racism quite like the far right, which loves Cruz.
And according to Costa, the Cruz boom isnt just delusion within his office, or on the outer fringe of the Tea Party. If you dont think this is real, then youre not paying attention, an unnamed Republican insider told Costa. Cruz already has grassroots on his side, and in this climate, thats all he may need.(continued)

Joan Walsh. LOL! Ditz.
They seem to be becoming increasingly strident.
Wonder why that is?
Haha! They’re sh*tting their pants at Salon, looking at how badly Obama is failing.
The Salon has spoken!
The earth will bend to the will of The Salon!
Joan, you ignorant slut....
Seems like they’re facilitating islamism to me.
well that’s that, then... /s
Oh this should be good.
This sad woman has the unmitigated gall to use the word narcissist to describe any Republican when she has the quintessential example in her party occupying the White House. Ted Cruz is one of the smartest people to enter politics in a long time, but sadly the Democrats don’t understand smart.
I can think of over 300-odd million people in this country who will never be president.
...how about Dole, McCain, and Romney, idiot?
(not you, 2nd, the author)
They are right.
All they have to do is find something he did wrong in High School and they can easily split the conservatives into three camps.
I predict the same Freepers that didn’t support George W , mccaine and mitt will not support any GOP nominee in the coming National elections.
I don’t know about that.
Unless you’re saying the GOP will fail to address the problem with the party, and nominate someone just like the losers.
Otherwise you are way, way off base on this one.
Cruz will be Palinized by the press, if possible.
Screeching by the author of "What's the matter with White People?". Keep going Ted, you're on target.
Suck on it, Joanie.
He’s not a NBC so, Salon, get over it.
WTF? You guys not have anything to write about this week?
Tell me who you fear, Salon.
