He is a Great Man, However he has a problem with this.

“Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where his parents, Eleanor Darragh and Rafael Cruz, were working in the petroleum business.[8][9] His father was a Cuban immigrant during the Cuban Revolution to the United States. His mother, an American, was reared in Delaware, in a family of Irish and Italian descent.[9][10]”

Why would Jeb Bush criticize Hagel?

“You submitted four speeches.” “Your financial records show that you were paid honoraria for 12 speeches.”

America's next president for damn sure ain’t Senator Cruz.
For starters, NO sitting senator should ever be elected president. Just take a look at the last two that were and tell me just how great they are/were. No executive experience there and every damn one of them are worthless prima donnas. And that really over rates every damn one of them.

Cruz is newly elected to the senate. He does not fit any of the stereotypes you list. I urge you to watch the video. Cruz beat the republican establishment candidate to replace precisely the kind of senator you are describing.

Here in Texas, there was alot of pre-election agitia about whether Cruz was up to the job of being a “conservative” senator.

As a first term senator, in his first time in front of the Senate mic., I think he was brilliant! So much more pointed than questions from the weasel rinos!

Ted Cruz is an up and coming star, a core Conservative and a patriot.

“For starters, NO sitting senator should ever be elected president.”

You’re lumping Ted Cruz in with Obama? You can’t be serious.

Cruz would be the first to say he is not elegible because of NBC.

As unprepared and inept as Hagel appeared, the Senate will still confirm his appointment. Our system of government has turned into a joke.
