Skip to comments.4 reasons why Ted Cruz could beat Hillary Clinton in 2016
Posted on 06/13/2014 6:08:05 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
The liberal media has been demonizing U.S. senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) ever since the Cuban-American got elected to congress. However, the Tea Party crusader is a formidable opponent for any Democrat presidential nominee, including Hillary Clinton.
Here are four reasons why Ted Cruz could win the White House in the 2016 elections.
1. Great Orator
Like Barack Obama, Cruz is a former lawyer. Go on YouTube and watch the junior senator on the speaking circuit. He's a tremendous orator, and a charismatic speaker who gives his audience plenty of enthusiasm. He also maintains his wits when heckled by protestors and pro-Obama supporters.
During campaign season, the Tea Party reformist will be extremely capable to hold his own when doing interviews with the leftist media.
2. Outstanding Education
Liberals and journalists may question Cruz on stances regarding social and policy issues, but they have to respect his intellectual brilliance. The senator from Texas was a national debating champion in his early 20s. He graduated with distinction from Princeton and Harvard Law.
Cruz's debating skills is evident while on the speaking circuit. He has also represented cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, which means he can't be pushed around by false logic and unreasonable arguments.
3. Principled Views
Barack Obama's views usually "evolve" to accomodate political polling. However, Ted Cruz offers a fresh alternative to flip-flopping by making principled stands. This may appeal to independent voters and moderate Democrats who are sick of D.C. politicians obfuscating the truth.
With Cruz, you get a consistent brand: conservative, low taxes, pro-job growth, small government, strong military, constitutionalist, and Reaganite.
4. American Exceptionalism
Finally, Ted Cruz wholeheartedly believes in American Exceptionalism -- a concept that's alien to Obama, though the latter pays lip service to it. As a well-defined brand, Cruz could energize mainstream voters who are growing tired of government abuses, waste,

Unfortunately 60 million traitorous or flatlined voters don’t give a crap about the ethical and patriotic qualities of Ted Cruz. They only wants to know what free stuff he gonna be gibin em.
I love Cruz. If we are going to lose in 16’ I would be happy to lose with him. Don’t think it will happen. If he were to lose we would at least get our point across. I could never understand why loser Romney could not blurt out: “Good luck getting a job.”
Any POTUS election is pretty straightforward these days.
The Democrat “blue wall” (states that have gone Dem POTUS 6 consecutive times or more) is at 242. It’s very unlikely any of those states will flip. Baraq held the blue wall with 8% unemployment, $4 gas, surging food prices and trillion dollar deficits.
Basically all the Dems need to do above that is Florida or Ohio.
When you figure they can spend essentially their entire campaign budget there, and throw in some successful cheatin’ as we’ve seen in 2012, it’s a formidable challenge.
Next: Did Dole, McLame, and Romney do anything to distinguish themselves as losers?
I have four reasons.
1. He’s Ted Cruz and not Hillary Clinton.
2. He’s Ted Cruz and not Hillary Clinton.
3. He’s Ted Cruz and not Hillary Clinton.
4. He’s Ted Cruz and not Hillary Clinton.
4 + dozens more...
I bet Cruz can attract more voters than the MSM and pundits are willing to acknowledge.
Thanks for the ongoing Cruz pings.
If Hillary runs she wins but Cruz will put up a much better fight than anyone else the GOP will nominate.
Cruz’s mother was a US citizen at the time of his birth. So that makes him a natural born citizen (nbc).
And personally, at this point, I couldn’t give a rat’s a** if he was, or wasn’t an nbc., an C.
I would vote for him over ANY demoCRAP, especially Clinton.
Why in the world would Cruz be ineligible?
“I thought Cruz was ineligible.”
So what? So was Obumbo, but he is POTUS.
I’ll add one more:
“It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an IRATE, TIRELESS MINORITY, keen on setting brushfires of FREEDOM in the minds of men.” by Samuel Adams
To me .. this is what the Tea Party movement is all about.
War on women!!
Cruz stands no chance. Doesn’t mean I don’t like him or some of what he says, but he will get slaughtered. The Tea Party, as determined as we are, can’t even stop a Lindsey Graham. Yeah, I know Cantor was defeated and the Tea Party is strong in TX. But that comes nowhere close to a National mandate or win. We are a strong ... minority. Cruz will appeal only to us. It would be a Clinton landslide and that is assuming ... a BIG assumption ... that he can get the nomination. Toss in the GOPe will eviscerate him on a National level and, well ... no.
Not an attack on Cruz, just the facts.
I noticed that the article mentions the fact that Cruz was a former lawyer, and that he had appeared before the Supreme Court.
However, there’s a little more info to be added to that: Some of you already know that Ted Cruz was the Solicitor General of Texas when Bush ran for the WH in 2000. Because of that position, Ted Cruz was the person who went before the Supreme Court to argue in the Bush v. Gore case. It was Cruz’s legal brilliance and thorough knowledge of the Constitution that allowed Bush to prevail in the election.
Now you know why the dems HATE him .. and why the McCain group calls him names. I cured the McCain group though, when they sent me a request for a donation - I sent them a note back - SORRY, I’VE ALREADY SIGNED UP WITH “WHACKO-BIRD” - which is the snarky name McCain gave to Cruz because Cruz wouldn’t bow to the senior senators’ request that Cruz sit down and shut up.
And .. this is why I am supporting Cruz.
If Ted debated Hillary .. he would leave her stammering and blubbering.
5. Since Ronald Reagan (excepting George HW Bush) the voters have given each party, in turn, two terms. They have seemed to tire of one party after 8 years and turn to the other.
It seems pretty clear that the public has had enough `hope and change’ from the Democrats, so the only way I can see the GOP losing is if they nominate another tired McCain, Romney clone—like Bush the Turd, I mean, third.
This election is the GOP-e’s to lose and, knowing them as we do, they just might be able to pull off a loss.
I absolutely love Cruz! And I get a thrill up my leg when he talks all conservative. Seriously, the reason Cruz can win is that HE DOE NOT ACCEPT liberal premises of dems or the media. For too long, republican candidates have acceded to liberal premises and adopted their lexicon. Cruz will turn it around on them. For example, what is more “extreme” — getting people off of the government dole, or encouraging ever greater numbers of Americans to get on food stamps and other entitlement programs. I submit it is more extreme, and stupid, to get more people dependent on their neighbors for support. Similarly, what is more “extreme” — building pipelines to safely transport oil to refineries, thus improving our standard of living, or remaining dependent on Middle East oil, even as the whole area descends into chaos? Hmmm?
The other intangible people are not considering is that people are starved for true leadership. Hillary has exhibited the antithesis of leadership. Cruz will consistently and forcefully lay out a vision for a better and more prosperous America. It will be compelling.
That’s a solid list.
"You don't mind if we don't curl up in the corner with you and give up all hope while we fight on for a conservative winner to become POTUS do you?"
Who said anything about giving up?!? One just needs to determine how to reduce the probability of a significant number of these flatlined traitors voting.
that’s exactly where I am...if we must lose, which is likely, due to the voter fraud among other things...but we should do so in a principled way.
If I lose I want to lose fighting, not surrendering on issues and principle until the voters can’t distinguish between the Republicans and democrats and vote for the real socialist instead of the me too socialist. If a clear difference is presented I believe “Conservatism” will win. I don’t believe we will find anyone more capable of delivering the Conservative message than Senator Cruz.
