So, here's my thinking about this.

There is no way in hell, Ted Cruz will win a nomination for President. There are far too many factors that will lead to his downfall.

1.The whole birther thing, which doesn't apply but they'll try anyway.
2.He's not really accomplished anything, even Fox News Hosts are bashing him about it.

And there's his connections to Goldman Sach's through his wife etc, which is clearly going to be used against him in anything ad related.

So, that brings me to this clever GOP strategy. The only people getting any press recently are Democrats. Hillary and Warren's potential run for Pres and speculation over running mates and other contendors.

The GOP side other than Jeb has been pretty moot. There's Rand Paul and such but not so much has really been covered.

Enter Ted Cruz.

A lovely distraction. This stops the media from covering all these lovely liberals running for the DNC nomination while at the same time, giving air time to other GOP members to spit their platforms or just tear down democrats and Obama.

I think it's meant to fail by design. I think the stories of Ted are going to be more ridiculous as time goes on, until his subsequent speech where he blames the media for having to stop.

The Bush vs Clinton thing will be a joke...enter a new candidate, more will follow on both sides, we just need good choices, not rehashed relatives only simpleminded people smile and nod at while clueless on the topic...

Ted Cruz will make walker and bush seem sane in comparison...that's the goal

Interesting to note that a candidate who wishes to adhere to the Constitution is considered as "fringe" by practically everyone.

Sad reflection on the country.

I think it's an IDIOTIC strategy. Who gave him 'permission'???? They can't be serious. The guy is a buffoon.
And his wife is on "unpaid leave" from Goldman Sachs until after the election - and no insurance for them now, either.
LOL!!!

So - he has to use Obamacare!!

Possibly the WORST candidate they could put up. Disgraceful. They're sinking their own ship, just like I suspected after the midterms.

Also - Warren insists that she is not going to run, unfortunately.

This move by the GOP is unfathomable to me. ANYONE could beat Cruz. Anyone at all.

Adhere to the Constitution? He's against legalizing marijuana. Something the Constitution makes no mention of being able to make illegal. That alone loses my vote.

Probably cause Hillary will put her on the VP ticket. IMO anyway.

She doesn't want to compete with Warren for the nomination, too much could go wrong in Iowa for that..

It's Ted Cruz strategy, not a GOP strategy. IMHO. Cruz can't win. He doesn't have the record, the money, or the support. He's trying to get free advertising by being the first one out of the gate so he'll get the most press time. If he were to declare later on, when most of the others declare, he'd be lost in the pack and not talked about. So he declared early to get the free press. I'm sure it won't help him but from what I see, he had no other choice.

States are taking care of the regardless of the federal position.

The Constitution also makes no mention of internet porn, so I don't really see your point.

I see the other side of the coin actually.

It's a repeat of 2008 with the Democrats.

They will put Clinton out front to absorb a year and a half of mud and media (which is all or politics boils down to unfortunately). At the last minute she will not get the nomination and a "fresh face" (ie Warren) will be the front runner and because she is fresh and clean and relatively unknown (due to Clinton being the attention whore for the media circus the next two years will be) she will win.

Republicans defeat themselves because they air their dirty laundry and sling mud at each other.

Democrats will win because their have a sacrificial lamb to draw attention away from all the dirty laundry of the others and have a game plan.

Whether it is right or wrong for America or not, the Dems at least work well together.

The Repubs want to lead the country but can't even operate a functional party.

Take this rant with a pound of salt, as one must assume that there is an actual two party system operating within the United States.

Having her part of the ticket would be the sole thing that might make me consider voting for Hillary - but I think she'd be much better as a cabinet member. The VP doesn't really do much.

Warren would, in my opinion, be a great choice. But she's got enough sense to realize it's a horrible job to have....

I took a 'poll' questionnaire this morning. My views are 93% aligned with the Green Party. 3% with the Republicans. About 50% with the Libertarians and Socialists.

no one cares if he wishes to adhere to the constitution, that's a straw argument, we care about his other stupid plans he wants to initiate...eliminate the IRS...really?...and replace tax collection with what?....it's easy to make grandiose statements without any detail, or alternate solution....if he was questioned, and truthfully had to explain his wild-assed statements, he wouldn't be able to give a coherent answer

Why is Boehner not running? I'd have to jab out my eyes and pierce my own eardrums with a pointy stick to tolerate seeing any more of his nauseating face, of course, though - so I'm glad he's not.

It is all a voter set up. Warren is to the left what Cruz is the right, pull 'em your way as far as possible. We will not be given middle of the road choices.

I'd be all for a tax reform and getting rid of a bloated government agency.

Just surprised that there would be those who want it.

Since we are talking about Ted Cruz being for the Constitution, my follow up question is: Ted Cruz is against internet porn?

Also, I understand that states are taking care of that issue, but you don't happen to think that someone who adamantly opposes legalization won't do stuff to block the states from doing their thing? We ARE talking about a Republican here. States' Rights only matter when it is a Liberal policy seizing control, otherwise it is fair game.
