I saw a belly-aching profile of Cruz yesterday by one of the main pundits. I can’t remember which one it was (Charlie Cook? Another? Can’t recall). But the gist was this. The pundit said that he had encountered candidates who were confident before, but never one like Cruz who was off the charts in his “arrogance”. He went on to say that Cruz won’t be able to do anything in the Senate because of this fiercely confident temperment.

I’m not so sure.

I think this is exactly what we need...and we need it desperately. Cruz doesn’t need the old guard leadership to tell him how to play.

It’s a new game in town.

Cruz is all things that MSM said of Obama is about: smart, good looking, editor of Harvard Law Review, minority, success story of a son of immigrant, constitutional scholar, great lawyer, etc, etc... On Obama, they merely elements of grand narrative that aren’t necessarily true. On Cruz, they’re real, documented, plus some more...

They are very afraid of Cruz. They fear Cruz will become a conservative version of Obama with even better narrative. If he run for a president, he’ll take Hispanic votes away from Democratic Party. They were afraid of Estrada before, but he was nothing like a US Senator Cruz. Hopefully they give him good space for him at the convention...

These idiots know nothing beyond evil and their own rewritten history. I guess he forgot that Senators used to beat one another down with canes... or better yet... kill each other in duels. We have in the US Senate today... the most rancid good old boy club ever devised. All it would take is a handful of confident Patriots to go along with the few already there... and their decorum and esteemed colleague BS would sunset quickly. I do not want harmony... I WANT AMERICA TO WIN FOR A CHANGE!
