Ted Cruz has high-profile, possibly very good upcoming week

Senator Cruz has several big opportunities to get national attention during the coming week.  I predict he will make good on all his chances to get his name and positions out to that small slice of the population likely to vote in a Republican presidential caucus or primary.

— Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is likely to draw the national spotlight next week with a legislative trifecta: a funding fight over the Department of Homeland Security, a vote for a new attorney general and a review on the future of NASA.

At the same time, Cruz will be hoping to make a splash among the Republican hard core for his possible 2016 presidential run by speaking and mingling Thursday at CPAC, the meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Cruz in prayer

Cruz, a neophyte politician elected in 2012, became a household name with his 21-hour floor speech leading up to 2013’s partial government shutdown. He seems poised to reprise his role as a shutdown cheerleader, supporting Republicans in the House of Representatives who have tied homeland security funding to rollbacks of President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

How many times have you watched a left wing anchor have a Republican on CNN, MSNBC, CBS or NBC news and you are getting angry and uncomfortable?  I’ve been there a million times.  We get uncomfortable and angry because that Republican is doing a terrible job defending the party and conservatism.   They either dodge the question and come up with a weak answer or fail to undermine the media narrative and dismantle the premise of the question. How many times have we seen it in presidential debates?  Candy Crowley versus Mitt Romney has to be on the top of the list as far as Republican fails with handling the media.

ted and media




…. If you look at the current crop of candidates in the 2016 cycle you must come to the conclusion that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)95% is best suited to be the conservative standard bearer who can defeat the media. Cruz is new on the scene with little to no baggage. What have they got so far to exploit him? He was caught drinking a beer in high school. Whoop Dee Doo. Cruz knew this was going to come out too. He was way too happy to get out in front of this when this news was leaked. You always have the crack weasel chicken little GOP voters who worry about the “Citizenship issue”. Months ago, that myth got so completely debunked that now the media realizes that if they start with that tactic it’s going to be an uphill battle for them. That’s why you don’t hear about the media pushing the citizenship issue too much. A while back Carl Cameron and Ann Coulter from Fox News hinted that Cruz is not qualified and got serious blow back from it.
