He was terrific. I just heard it on c-span radio.Yet another Cuban refugee who has witnessed the fallacies of communism under Castro and really believes in what our founders laid out for the country.

It is easy to answer these questions when you aren’t a weasel liberal. Cruz is an example of what we need nation wide, a principled conservative.

I heard two pundits on PBS this AM who said that Cruz was the “Establishment” candidate or the “Bush candidate” . What was that all about? I heard on FOX that Cruz was the Tea Party candidate. Will someone please explain? Are the PBS people just off-base as usual? They said that Gov. Perry backed Cruz’ opponent and that Perry and the Bushes never got along. Is PBS just trying to fan flames or are they just trying to fill their air space with babble? I am not trying to fan flames. Just searching for the truth.

You are correct and that is why I supported Cruz. We need more like him in Congress.

Not sure what PBS motives were. Maybe they are confused since many tea party people liked Perry. Perry backed the establishment guy. Ted Cruz is the tea party candidate and won overwhelmingly. He was supported by Sarah Palin.

The EnvironMentalist Commonutty frames issues this same way. If you don't instantly agree with each and every tenent or screwed up idea of theirs, they start bellowing that you are a polluter!

Now, as I see it, yes, there probably is a Bush wing and a Perry wing of the TX Repellican Party, but... Just because Cruz hasn't been in step with the Perry wing, doesn't automatically mean he's right in step with every aspect of the Bush wing!

Even Marco Rubio has been backing that so-called "dream act" and a couple of other things but that doesn't put him in the Romney wing totally either because Romney said he's against that stuff! See what I mean?

Both Rubio and Cruz are excellent conservative American-Cubans, and I hope for 2016 we have the Cruz-Rubio ticket to vote for. Well, maybe in 2020(sigh).

Being up north in Minnesotaland, I have only heard about Ted Cruz until today. I listened to the entire interview. He’s terrific! We need more of him.

I am soooo glad he is the official candidate now and not just a contender. He will be a great addition to the US Senate.

Cruz and Bush were on opposites sides of a Supreme Court battle involving the State of Texas' execution of a Mexican national...Cruz won. But Cruz did serve in the Bush administration.

And I found this...

At Princeton he was a champion debater. From there he went to Harvard Law School. "Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant," Prof. Alan Dershowitz told the National Review.

The Senate needs Ted Cruz...maybe even the Supreme Court.

"I heard two pundits on PBS this AM who said that Cruz was the “Establishment” candidate or the “Bush candidate” . What was that all about? I heard on FOX that Cruz was the Tea Party candidate. Will someone please explain?"

I didn't hear the PBS clip, but it's totally wrong to think friction between Gov. Perry and the Bush family somehow identifies Ted Cruz as an "Establishment" or "Bush candidate"; that description perfectly fits his opponent in the primary, Lt. Gov. Dewhurst (except Dewhurst showed he has much less honor than GW Bush).

In my decades-long experience with Texas politics, I can't think of any successful candidate for a statewide office who is less of an Establishment politician than Ted Cruz.

A cornerstone of Cruz's campaign message is that voters are tired of career politicians in both parties, which is at the heart of the Tea Party philosophy.

PBS pundits will attempt to fill time in wild speculation and change the subject from the real story which is the Cruz win in Texas is a huge victory for the Tea Party and undeniable evidence of the power of this grassroots movement in a large state.

That was an amazing interview between Ted Cruz and Chris Wallace! My jaw literally dropped at the end as Cruz recalled Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. I've never been so confident that Texans made the right choice for the U.S. Senate.

Ted Cruz is the REAL DEAL as opposed to the sort of “conservative” we normally see!

Supported Cruz from the gitgo, but until the interview on Wallace, had no idea how fantastic he really was! Not only did he say the right things, you could see it was the real deal.

Yes we did well!

“Cruz is an example of what we need nation wide, a principled conservative.”

But I heard him endorse Romney and say we need to get him elected president. Doesn’t that mean we are supposed to hate him now? I’m so confused. How can someone who supports Romney be a “principled” conservative? From what I read in a lot of threads here no principled conservative could ever endorse Romney.

He says that because he believes Obama MUST GO.

If you believe he MUST GO, and then you take every other issue from there, but if that is your bedrock bottom line belief, then you can’t avoid that Romney needs to win for that to occur.

The state of Texas and Ted Cruz exactly mirror each other. Texas no more WANTS to vote in a Mormon, Yankee, Moderate for President than it wants to repudiate the Alamo, but it will make that choice, that sacrifice, for one reason. They, too, believe Obama MUST GO.

You are wise to see the strangeness IF someone loves Cruz but wants Obama to beat Romney.

Who is your candidate for President? Any chance of someone who will win? On the ballot in all 50 states?

I see Cruz looking at President being a minor role as long as it is Romney. Laws and policy become secondary to what budgets and policy come from the Congress.

So not voting for Mitt is probably counter productive. But it is your vote.

I actually am supporting Romney. The purpose of my earlier post was to try and point out the absurdity of some posters around here, what I call the thousand percenters, who bash Romney every chance they get and say they won’t vote for him because they are principled, meaning of course, that we are not. Just having some fun, hopefully at their expense. And at the same time trying to see if they will actually come out against Cruz. Better yet, wait until Sarah Palin endorses Romney, then some heads will really explode.

Ahh, well, I am not a huge fan of Romney, but I see what you are doing. I held back vomit and voted for McCain, so it should be easier for me to vote Romney.
