One big difference tho':  Cruz speaks truth to power, Obama merely curries favor with power.

Jonah is way off on this one. We don't know how much education Obama has, and by his actions, I doubt if he got good grades at all, or even went to Harvard.  Cruz has an actual working background, while Obama was an adjunct teacher, without the title even of professor. I don't see the comparison because one has integrity, and the other is a narcissist who has a ghetto attitude when it comes to governing.

They are both shameless self-promoters.  Neither really cares about working within his party and each thinks he has the charisma to simply draw people by force of personality.

I Am So P!$$ed!

[RANT]
Fact is .. These POS .. ALL of them (GOP) ran on their word that they would repeal or defund ObozoCare!

We no longer hold the Bas-Turds that are excoriating Cruz as liars?

Now, are we to join trash like John MacShame and Harry Reid in mocking Cruz?

Which brings me to a conclusion that I arrived at years ago during my stint in nam .. MacShame collaborated with the enemy, to save his skin, in his 'supposedly' "Heroic" stand under torture!

What more proof do we need than the fact that he joins the enemy of our country in something that involves no such torture?

No, MacShame seems almost 'gleeful' in his attempts to ridicule a man who is standing on principle and promise!

The very same promise that MacShame himself made!

POS![/RANT]

Karl Rove, no Ted Cruz cheerleader told Greta Cruz was very impressive, smart, funny, engaging and a lot of other adjectives I cannot remember..... he was impressed was the gist of the interview tonight.

MRClose... aren't they cute little girls.  Late, late last night Cruz was talking about when he started dating his wife she and her family are vegan's. He said he went to CA for Thanksgiving with the family and "it's exactly like every Thanksgiving Dinner in America - except the main course never arrives"  I cracked up.. had the exact same thing happen with my first husband, his family were all Vegan's - something he conveniently failed to tell me... We went up to Yosemite for Thanksgiving at his grandparents and I walked into the house and said "I don't smell a turkey cooking"..... to which he tells me -- oh my family doesn't eat meat...  the vegies were good, the tofu stuff not so good.. and no pumpkin pie, chocolate pie... so I think what can you do to screw up a chocolate meringue pie?  Um  you can if the chocolate is carb instead of chocolate ~LOL~

So Cruz said her family asks him "how do Cuban's celebrate Thanksgiving."  He told them we roast a live piglett....... said the looks on their faces were priceless.

I really like this man a lot, like his sense of humor and his ability to tell stories is equal to what we had with RR....

Amen!

Another difference? Cruz's academic record is an open book. Obama's is shrouded in mystery. And what is known about Obama points to a mediocre record at best. We also know Obama was a stoner and snorted the white powder from high school through college. Oh, and one more difference. Cruz respects the Constitution, Obama uses it as toilet paper.

The two couldn't be any more different.

Obama wasn't routinely trashed by his own party's power structure either.
