Cruz Is Running

As if it’s a big surprise, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is planning to make it official.  Via the National Journal:

According to sources close to the Texas senator, Cruz could be preparing for an end-of-year announcement and is now dedicating considerable time and effort to cultivating a foreign-policy foundation that might help his candidacy stand out in what is guaranteed to be a crowded field.

“At this point it’s 90/10 he’s in,” one Cruz adviser said. “And honestly, 90 is lowballing it.”

It’s always risky to make predictions about elections this far out, but when you have a candidate that is that far-out, it’s easy: if the fates have a twisted sense of humor and let him get all the way to the nomination, he’s going to make the Goldwater campaign of 1964 look like a squeaker.  The only candidate he could possibly beat is Teddy the Wonder Lizard, and that would be because the voters couldn’t tell one Ted from the other.

I’d give Rick Santorum a better chance.

  1. Could it be that we’d be so lucky? Either will do. But we have to get our act together. Here the ODP has allowed a former FBI agent who’s never held a driver’s license and was once caught at 4:30 AM in his car with a woman not his wife to be their nominee. He was anointed without having to go through the vetting done in a primary as the party’s choice to run against the current Governor who, incidentally, is being touted as a possible Presidential candidate and is floating in cash. DNP donors are fleeing, of course.

    Frustrated? You bet I am.
