The Boston Globe has a look back at Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz‚Äės three years as a student at Harvard Law from 1992 to 1995. It turns out largely unremarkable, as Cruz seems to be the exact same person then that he is today. But there were two curious anecdotes worth note.

Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Well it’s a hell of a lot more then we know about Obama’s college years!
What are the best parts of Bammy’s academic career?
Oh Good grief.
So now, he’s disqualified because he wanted to be an actor and got drunk ?
I wanted to be a rock star back-in-the-day, and once had to be sent home in a taxi after a motorcycle party because i was unfit to ride my bike.
Does that mean i am unfit to ever run for public office?
Well that’s about a thousand times more than we’ll ever know about odumbo’s college career.
Yep. Still waiting (not) for the Globe's exhaustive review of Stevie "The Shadow" Dunham's Harvard years.
That reminds me of two other former world leaders, one who similarly considered a life in the theater in his youth but chose not to ... and one who did go to Hollywood.
Viva Senator Ted Cruz.
When giants walked the earth.
What I wouldn’t give to have leaders like that now.
Some jealous Harvard Drama school brat talked him into 151 alcohol and we’re supposed to pretend he’s an alcoholic.
I can wager good money he never got drunk again, just as an aside.
The poor editors at the Boston Globe. It has fallen on them, I am sure, to try and fail. The Crimson too, I imagine.
It is going to be entertaining, in the sense of hoping our country wins this heavy, insidious battle, to watch the entire media, Democratic machine and Republican would-be Grain Alcohol/Moonshine pushers scramble and fall flat like Wile-E C. searching for incriminating events in the good senator’s life.
“Ooh! Somebody’s always helping that [man]!”
They hate Ted Cruz. If this is the worst they can dig up on him, he is in good shape.
I wish Sarah Palin would run for the Senate Seat coming up in Alaska. She could be the firebrand in the Senate while Ted Cruz is President.
“My dream ticket”
Vice President whom ever will pull in votes for the ticket.
Secretary of Defense Allen West
Secretary of Commerce Herman Cain
Secretary of Energy None. Abolish the group and put it under the Department of commerce.
Secretary of Education Thomas Sowell
Attorney General Senator Lee
Senator Cruz is an enormous threat to those who have not protected and obeyed the United States Constitution and that includes about 75% of our elected...it certainly includes Barry Soetoto, POTUS...John McCain, Chuck Shumer, Reid, Pelosi, etc. The Tea Party remains on the RINO hit list because of their knowledge of and their stand for our Constitution...the left just naturally abhors such loyalty.
What I wouldnt give to have leaders like that now.
You'd need another cold war to have leaders like that now, and - probably - another world war in front of it.
What little we know of Dear Leader Obama includes that he liked his illicit (and illegal) drugs. He loved to get high.
Best to click onto the Globe article.
Surprisingly very good with quotes from past college friends & foes and quotes from Cruz himself.
So he wasn’t a Marxist which disqualifies him according to the BoGlob
Pray America is Waking Up
Dr. Ben Carson is missing from your list.
I would put him as VP I think. Maybe at the top of the ticket with Cruze as VP. You also need to get Bolton back in the game for foreign affairs (UN).
HHS needs to be disbanned.
EPA needs to be eliminated.
Throw out the tax coade and cut the IRS by 85% (100% if Fair Tax implemented COMPLETELY)
Hillary wrote her master’s thesis on the Woodlawn Organization - started and run by Saul Alinsky... After all these years we don’t know crap about that...
I heard about this yesterday. They are seeing how low can you go to attack someone who scares them so much.
Glad the globe was so diligent in vetting barry’s college years when he was learning about the 57 states. < /s>
Oh My..that IS a “Dream Ticket”!
I love your choices, based upon the individual expertise of each person . Brilliant....
EXCEPT..not enough Diversity! There is not a single transgendered-lesbian-questioning-handicapped-wiccan-muslim on your entire list! What’s wrong wid yo?
For the next two years, the MSM will be fawning over Krispy while attacking Cruz.
As soon as Christie gets the nomination, they’ll attack him and promote Hillary the whole 9 yards.
Obviously, that disqualifies him for the presidency. /sarc
Everclear--"a little dab will do ya'"
Put in the punch bowl of a group of teetotalers, it can be quite amusing.
And his college “career”....
Occidental, etc....who paid for it? how did he get in? what status did he use to apply? Who knew him then?....
*crickets from media*
Apparently, there are some candidates that the media and the public can actually find out information covering their years in college. There are other candidates that you can’t find anything on their college records or anyone who even knew them in college.
Ted Cruz has authored more than 80 SCOTUS briefs and presented 43 oral arguments, including nine before SCOTUS. Cruz’s record of having argued before SCOTUS nine times is more than any practicing lawyer in Texas or any current member of Congress. Cruz has commented on his nine cases in front of SCOTUS: “We ended up year after year arguing some of the biggest cases in the country. There was a degree of serendipity in that, but there was also a concerted effort to seek out and lead conservative fights.”
Cruz has been named by American Lawyer magazine as one of the 50 Best Litigators under 45 in America, by The National Law Journal as one of the 50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America, and by Texas Lawyer as one of the 25 Greatest Texas Lawyers of the Past Quarter Century.
Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor. While at Harvard Law,Cruz was a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, and executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review. Referring to Cruz’s time as a student at Harvard Law, Professor Alan Dershowitz said, “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant. At Harvard Law, Cruz was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics.
With the failing Obamacare and Cruz being proven right the Liberal smear and demonization machine is firing up against Cruz!
Now we know that Cruz got drunk at Harvard. We also know that Bush was an average student at Yale. But, we don’t even know that Obama really went to college! Why did he spend millions to keep all his past records secret?
Well, there’s the part where he faked being from Kenya to get foreign student admission. That’s a highlight.
Also, his membership in various radical anti-white groups.
Wow, Ted had a college career. Isn’t that interesting. All you investigating pundits start digging!
Famed Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz ranks Sen. Ted Cruz among the schools smartest students, adding that the Canada-born Texan can run for president in 2016.
Cruz was a terrific student, Dershowitz told The Daily Caller. He was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didnt strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian.
He had brilliant insights and he was clearly among the top students, as revealed by his class responses, Dershowitz added.
Dershowitz also gave a high estimate of Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren who has decidedly different political views than Cruz.
Dershowitz says he and Cruz would often debate issues presented in Dershowitzs criminal law class. Cruzs views were always thoughtful and his responses were interesting, the law professor explained. I obviously disagreed with them and we had good arguments in class. I would challenge him and he would come up with very good responses.
Cruzs career has not surprised me. I thought he would go on to accomplish important things.
His movement toward social conservatism has surprised me a little bit, Dershowitz added, but people will change and perhaps when you are at Harvard Law School you are less likely to espouse a socially conservative point of view.
Cruz was an outstanding student in my class, Dershowitz said. Without a doubt he is among the smartest students Ive ever had Ive had great students but he has to be at the top of anyones short list, in terms of raw brain power.

Back then, I wondered whether the Reagan-Thatcher years represented a high-water mark for conservatism.
Yep! “He avoided Boston”
One smart guy!
Reportedly the DU choice for "Obama's Third Term"
Ted Cruz has no skeletons in his closet, that we know of, but I’m sure the MSM is digging up every story they can unlike the passive job they’ve done in investigating the past of the president and Queen Hillary.
I like to cite Dershowitz because he's one of the Globe's own. Those quotes must really rankle them.
"..they're smart enough and yet they wish suffering on others and are just downright evil."
Cruz is rejecting that view...but he does seem to have unintentionally summed up Barack Obama pretty well.
Is this the worst that the left can come up with against Ted Cruz? We know they will dig into anything, whether it be innuendo or half-baked facts, to destroy just about the only male conservative who refuses to fold against their lies and Alinsky-style tactics. They will try every way possible to show he is not the real deal. I pray that America continues to wake up and listen to him, Sarah, Mike, Lee, Jeff Sessions, etc. These people ARE the real deal and along with faith in our Creator, we’d better start talking them up with relatives and friends now, let others know the great things these people stand for and their willingness to be called fools in order to do the right thing for all Americans. The republicans are terrible at getting the word out for what the party stands for, so WE must do it in our communities and start to light the flame of liberty.
How about we start a thread here, like it has been mentioned by more than one freeper already, to enlighten us all to the RINOS, the real deal republicans and independents, and expose the mealy-mouthed RINOS and even state senators and representatives. We need to turn them out, regardless of whether they serve nationally or in the statehouse. We really need to get into action here.
Hilarious how the MSM articles always prominently mention that Cruz was “born in Canada.” Obviously they’re trying to fan the flames among some potential supporters on the right that he might not be constitutionally eligible.
The MSM is trying to hurt Cruz in the GOP primary equally as much as they’re trying to help Christie. That’s all you need to know...
I certainly hope she wins the nomination...
I really don’t know...
If she gets the full Obama crew (Axlegrease, Gibbs, Plouffy, etc) remember they re-elected a guy with 8% unemployment, $4 gas, surging food prices, and trillion dollar deficits to the horizon. Something I viewed as a 1 in a 1000 probability.
Excellent dream ticket.
I highly support it!
The only person I would add is Governor Scott Walker. I think, being a governor, he has more Exec experience for POTUS, more so than Ted. Ted would be excellent as VP, then run on his own merits later on.
Just my 02.
Here’s that article:
Harvard Law outsider became Tea Party hero: In liberal bastion, Ted Cruz played a familiar role
“...he is all-in for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. ...”
Hadn’t realized that. Will have to do some more research on him. Thank you for the info.
We are in a cold war. A cold revolutionary war.
