Skip to comments.Is Ted Cruz the new Ronald Reagan?

That's the provocative thesis of Jeffrey Lord, writing at The American Spectator. He's the one we've been waiting for, to borrow an expression. Here is some of the case Lord makes:
...terrified Republicans have turned on Ted Cruz like they once went after... Ronald Reagan.
Yes, Ronald Reagan.
While no Republican Senator will ever breathe anything but the highest of laudatory tributes to Reagan these days, in fact once upon a time Reagan himself was treated in exactly the same way that Senator Cruz (not to mention Governor Palin) is treated today.
Why? For doing exactly what Senator Cruz is doing today.

Better. Reagan had leadership qualities that were desperately needed. Cruz adds strong conservative credentials.
And he does actually seem to be a quicker thinker on his feet. He’s really able to stay focused and cut through the BS answers when questioning others.
Additionally he is a strategic thinker, risk manager which doens’t compute with a bunch of risk averse, go along to get along, GOPe wussies.
It deserves to be posted twice. I LOVE Ted Cruz, and I remember well when nobody would admit to having voted for Reagan (even though he won by a landslide every time!)
Reagan was my Governor before he was everybody’s President, and I’m proud to admit that I voted for him every time!
Go, Ted, go! May the wind be at your back and God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
He also handled people like that bitch Candy Crowley pretty well, too. It was like he was calling her an ignorant slut to her face in so many words - at least the exchange I saw between them.
If I could only photoshop.
It appears to be the case.
I've called every one of Cornyn's numbers in Texas and all the phones are super busy or off the hook.
I see a lot of both of these guys - Reagan AND Mr Smith - in my Senator, Ted Cruz!!
Great idea — to support Cruz via his district office(s). Doing that, now ;)
His hair is thinning which is a major impediment to his electability.
If you can get through, give 'em hell.
Can you imagine the look on the Obama-ites faces when they realize that Ronald Reagan is not dead?
Side note....Cruz' offices are aware that Cornyn's phones are ALL busy and that Texans cannot get through to one of our *represenatives*.
I simply love him.......and keep him in prayer!
1. Ted Cruz is eligible to run ... I think he is
2. I hope he does run
3. I hope that Ted has no major skeletons in his closet
4. I REALLY hope that if there are one or two rumors of skeletons found that the conservative base will vote for him anyway.
Remember if the MSM does not find skeletons, they will make some up.
The answer is hell yes!!!
All Cornyn office phones have been busy or mail box full. Finally, however, managed to leave a message at Dallas office. Advised Cornyn to support Ted Cruz and if he does not vote to defund Obamacare from CR his political career is over in Texas.
