Reagan wasn’t a first time senator and had already just missed the nomination in 1976.
He was ready...and so was the country.
Cruz is too young and inexperienced. He can wait 4-8 years.
America doesn’t have 4-8 years.
I’m done with the usual suspects.
I'm glad he's in it. He certainly has a lot of supporters here on FR. I don't think he will win but he will learn a lot. Like you said, he is young, and has plenty of years ahead to make another run if this one doesn't work out. He may even be picked for VP if he gets primary'd.
Let the games begin!
You don’t send a Superstar to the minor leagues. You bring him up to the majors and get out of the way while he makes history.
Ted Cruz is destined to be President and nothing can stop that from happening.
And your choice for prez is . . . ?
Waiting 4-8 years, how is conservatism supposed to survive and not become a political minority, long-term?
Don’t underestimate this election cycle.....nor those being raised up.
We got Obama because our nation has fallen into a sewer and loves wallowing in it.....they need to see and hear the difference...AGAIN!
Additionally, those who vote in today’s world do not have the same mindset when Reagan ran...and I’m not speaking of just the youth. They care less about experience or Obama would have never won...twice no less! They are looking for someone with answers...who can articulate these in their “language”....
And Cruz might just miss the nomination this time and be ready for ‘20 or ‘24. At minimum, I see him pounding Bush.

It appears that you just might be the ISIS mole around here...
Cruz is too young and inexperienced.
... And, as such, thinking Freepers will take whatever it is you say about anything with a healthy level of suspicion.
