Ted Cruz, he of the smug mug and squinty, McCarthy-esque visage, is seriously considering a run for president in 2016. I fear the GOP nomination may be his to lose.
“If you don’t think this is real, then you’re not paying attention,” says a Republican insider. “Cruz already has grassroots on his side, and in this climate, that’s all he may need.”
“There’s not a lot of hesitation there,” adds a Cruz donor who has known the Texan for decades. “He’s fearless.”
Sarah Palin has all but endorsed him, calling him a conservative who “chews barbed wire and spits out rust.” Gag.
Cruz was born in Canada but considers himself a natural-born citizen because his mother was born in the U.S.
Funny, I don’t recall anyone on the right making that argument on behalf of Barack Obama.
