Well Cruz isn't a perfect candidate, but he's as close as we are gonna get.
No, content is fine. I was mostly commenting on the fact that you didn't compile all of the responses into one post.
Politicians are ridiculous clowns. That's my educated and aware opinion, as a free-thinker.
Interviewed in February 2014, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz declared that Syrian refugees should be permitted into the United States and argued that this could be done without jeopardizing national security.
"We have welcomed refugees -- the tired, huddled masses -- for centuries. That’s been the history of the United States," he told Fox News in a video featured on Cruz's website. "We should continue to do so." He added: "We have to continue to be vigilant to make sure those coming are not affiliated with the terrorists, but we can do that."
Since last week's Paris attacks, the GOP presidential candidate has been a fierce critic of the Obama administration's policy to permit some Syrian refugees into the United States. [Source]

Now, I recognise that I am just a Brit with a brain, but if I outclass a person in terms of general knowledge and scientific awareness, and yet that other individual has a job involving backstopping and funding for space science, you have to wonder what business he has occupying his position.
He had better be a great debater, because he is under qualified in every other respect. The man is a vacuous dullard
IQ that likely crushes the vast majority of his peers.
Disagreeing with someone else's positions doesn't make them an idiot or a dullard... in fact, it seriously undermines your own position, especially when the person you're mocking has an IQ that likely crushes the vast majority of his peers.

Crus is really smart. I can't stand him and think he's a horrible person and would make a horrible president, but I can't argue with the fact that he's very, very intelligent.
I would love to see Obama and Cruz debate an issue like this live with no moderators. That's real politics there. It will never happen.
