Oh, he's actually a brilliant medical surgeon? I'd heard whispers on the grape vine he kind of sucked, but it might have just been propaganda.

He's a total nutter outside his specialized field, though. Not very good at history, either.
Probably a few similarities between him and Cruz, actually.


I love when people who can't afford their own birth control call neurosurgeons stupid. Unfortunately for demorats the game of life is not played on the net.

wait...
WHAT?

Who said neurosurgeons are stupid? And who here has said they can't afford their own birth control, please?

You can be intelligent in more than one way. I've said time and time again that different people have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Mr. Cruz here would appear to be very good at Law and... Whatever it was he got from Princeton. However, does that mean he would also be very good at quantum physics, cellular biology, advanced mathematics, or medicinal chemistry? I can't truly say, but my guess would be "No." He might be passable if he studied those subjects a great deal, but likely not brilliant, as he (supposedly) is when it comes to Law.

While he ultimately may be intelligent, there's a fair chance it has been somewhat corrupted by hardcore conservative religious fundamentalism.
"The difference between an intelligent man and a fool is that the intelligent man is far better able to defend the opinion that he has reached by erroneous means."

Yep! Money can buy you grades and fancy-arsed diplomas!!!
AND, it can buy you a ticket on the Presidential Candidates list......

BUT - It can't buy you class, or wisdom.

I'm sorry, I tried to comprehend your post but the sheer stupidity of it caused me to have a stroke.

@TrueBrit: Well, it can buy the universities. Chances are it can also buy the grades.

Ben Carson compares some refugees to rabid dogs. So Ted Cruz bit him!


Sorry...couldn't resist. Saw that somewhere today and it stuck in my head.

Then it's a good thing you force me to subsidize your healthcare else we'd witness survival of the fittest in action.

Law may not fall under sciences, and his public policy degree from Princeton (essentially a poly science degree) may not directly tie to the sciences, but both of them heavily rely on critical thinking and questioning/testing theories.


Political science and actual science are two entirely different fields. In other words they do not tie into the sciences not even indirectly.

When you speak of testing theories lets be clear.

Layman definition of theory and scientific theory are two entirely different things as well. (For clarification see sig)

A few things that may have slipped past your amazing abilities of perception.

1) I am not American.
2) I am not female.
3) I am not of child-rearing age.
4) I am not on healthcare, of any kind.
5) You do not subsidize my healthcare.
6) You do not subsidize my anything.
7) You are no longer worthy of my attention.

From Princeton and Harvard? Born to a father who had fled Cuba with $100 after being imprisoned and tortured only 13 years before Ted was born and a mother who was a math teacher? That type of wild ass wealth buy honors from two of the most elite, respected universities in the US? Hmmm... you know, I'm gonna say you're trying to manufacture your own vision of things there, my friend.

That's meaningless, outside of making it weird that he'd be against refugees.

How much money did he have when he entered his universities?

I'll also note that I don't actually think he paid for his grades.

I get it. This is hard to contextualize but there's a fundamental divide between the views of lib euros and conservative Americans. Almost like we're on different planets. I have nothing in common with you and our candidates reflect that. I'm more than ok with that. As a euro lib you may reconsider point 2.

Frankly it would be compelling television to watch these two partisan meatheads whack each other over the head with folding chairs while locked in a cage.

We can also add Jerry Springer or Geraldo Rivera into the mix.

If asked, “What do you associate with the name Ted Cruz?”, I’d probably answer, “Deep psychological disorder.” In my view, the value of his service to this country ranks somewhere between the satisfaction derived from a severe case of genital warts and an outbreak of bleeding hemorrhoids.

I can’t help it. When I think of him not speaking at some extremist evangelical hatefest or being a political whore at a media shoot or plotting to overthrow the government at a far right wing strategy luncheon, I picture him sitting alone in some hotel room during a private moment torn over the frustration and conflict he feels between his desire to express himself through flamboyant cross-dressing sessions and the uncontrollable case of penis envy he feels toward a certain member of the Senate Subcommitte on Pornography in the Media. Poor guy.

You gotta admit, with lipstick smeared all over his mouth, a flowery dress and a good wig he’d make an outstanding Mrs. Doubtfire. As President of the United States, though, not so much...

His total net worth presently sits at around $4 Million on the high side. I wouldn't say he came from poverty, but he certainly did not come from affluence either.

Bottom line to get away from this steering completely off topic, hate the man for his policies and argue them all you want. Hell, as I said earlier, I've not seen too many instances where I was in disagreement with him, so I'll happily debate/argue with you over those policies. What gets me, and it seems to be common practice from GOP detractors this election cycle, is the lunacy of insulting a candidate's intelligence simply because you disagree with them. I don't even do that with Bernie Sanders, and I can't stomach that man's goddamned policies and intentions. Yet, with regularity, we see "Ben Carson is an idiot," "Ted Cruz is a dummy,"Look how stupid Jeb Bush is" etc. All stemming from very petty individuals essentially waving a flag that says "I disagree with you, but am too dense to actually challenge the issue, so instead I'll call you names and mock your intelligence." I'm here to say these people doing the mocking might want to realize they're calling some of the most learned, intellectually gifted people in the race "idiots."

No, he's actually not.

He's trailing badly in every poll you care to look at...even his own, obviously, since he felt it necessary to do something like this.

Even thirty voters is thirty voters too many. ^_^

@Burdman: Personally, if I decide to insult someone's intelligence it's usually because they've said something rather stupid, rather than any particular disagreement with them. Carson saying the pyramids were for storing grain, for instance. Because the Bible or whatever it was. Unless that was just propaganda and he never said that?

Intellect is more than just a university degree. Jeb, Cruz, Trump, Bush Jr. and so forth may be intelligent in their respective fields, but they do not tend to act that way. I am sorry, but the suggestion that they are among the most gifted of our race actually makes me physically ill. The primary issue is that these people never seem to do anything positive.

I do quite to say they're crazy, liars, scumbags, etc. though. Particularly Carson when it comes to insanity, who is totally off his rocker.
I will confess that my overall of view politicians does lean towards the "Dribbling buffoons" side of the continuum a lot of the time, usually because of how incredibly, incredibly incompetent they are.

What's your opinion on Cruz's "No Refugees" stance, then?

It's great how people are jumping on Ted Cruz over his looks. And over his intelligence. Even going so far as to accuse him of committing fraud buy his honors. And even surmising he is a closet tranny.
The opposition is weak on this one. Carry on.
