Skip to comments.Dershowitz: Ted Cruz Is an ‘Intelligent,’ ‘Principled’ Debater

Freshman Sen. Ted Cruz, who has led the tea party wing of Republicans in Congress in their effort to defund Obamacare, is an intelligent and principled debater, says his old Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.
Appearing Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Live," Dershowitz called the Texas Republican "one of the sharpest students I had, in terms of analytic skills. I've had 10,000 students over my 50 years at Harvard . . . He has to qualify among the brightest of the students."

He would make an excellent President!
Cruz would be too good for this country.
Let’s elect him in 2016!
Yes-—he is “fair” on occasion but he is so flawed to believe in Socialism/Marxism. I always wondered how he can be logical/reasonable sometimes and literally see the truth at time-—like the brilliance of a Ted Cruz-— and absolutely STUPID at other times.
But then marxists/socialists are irrational. Suppose they can be “right” on occasion like a broken clock.
I have exchanged emails with Dershowitz. He is his own man and does not speak or write using liberal talking points.
He asked me to stay after class. I thought uh-oh! To my utter surprise, he congratulated me for taking the time to be well-informed on the topic and engage in an intelligent and engaging debate. I got an A in the class even though our political viewpoints were polar opposites.
Dershowitz speaks his mind. He was sincere.
“Cruz would be too good for this country.”
On that we agree, Americans who voted for Obama don’t deserve a great and impassioned leader like Cruz. But we who still believe in liberty need him.
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Agree or disagree Dershowitz says what he means and means what he says, without giving a rat’s a** if it’s PC or not. I gotta respect that.
There was a time not long ago that Dershowitz represented the far Left. Boy, how times have changed.
Cruz one day will be President of the United States.
Sarah Palin will see to it.
I love your thinking!
Yup, Dershowitz also defended George Zimmerman claiming he was entitled to a defamation case against his prosecutor, Angela Corey.
