A few choice words on Ted Cruz...

In my opinion, Ted Cruz is the defacto hero of the Tea Party crumpets and NOT the true Republican conservatives who don’t like him, but have taken a backseat to the Tea Baggers. 
 
Cruz does well with extremist voters, especially those in Texas and other red states who are extreme in their view of being Conservative Republicans.  Rand Paul is an extremist Libertarian, not a Republican.

I think the result of having Cruz and others like him trying to take over the party is that there is a huge split in the Republican Party that most likely will hurt it in 2016, unless the party as a whole can form a cohesive unit around one candidate for President who is not an extremist. 
 
I don’t know if the party will be able to do that, but it will be interesting to watch what happens.  Currently, red states do not have the majority electoral or popular votes as may be seen from the last Presidential election results.  Lucky us!
 
Ted Cruz is little more than a whiner, complainer and a bully.  He offers no real solutions for our issues and problems.  It seems the majority of the Republican party does NOT care for or favor him.  Cruz tries to use smoke & mirrors, hoping to fool Americans with this ploy.  Confucius stated, "Beware of the man who blows hot and cold in one breath."
 
For a guy who is a double Ivy League college graduate, Cruz seems to be a fairly erratic and stupid man.  Instead of fighting the real battles, he chooses to manipulate people into focusing on what he wants them to.  Some of his disturbed focal points are that:
 
  • "Obama bad, Cruz good"
  • Obama-care bad, but he provides no positive replacement for it
  • Cruz wants to be at the top of the party, but he is impatient and doesn’t want to play nice and take the usual steps to get there
  • Cruz is loud, antagonistic and aggressive in his style
  • Cruz is an attorney who does not want to play by the rules, only his own set of rules
  • He often attracts relatively intelligent or unintelligent, self-involved and aggressive people, maybe even grandiose people like himself.
Ted Cruz is a detriment to the Republican Party and to American citizens.  Both Republicans and Democrats should fear what Cruz brings to the table:  Extremist rhetoric and little else.   I think the majority of people see that, but it doesn’t make Cruz any less dangerous to our way of life.   He will continue to be a thorn in the side of the Republican Party and in time he may alienate and burn himself out of contention.  
 
If extremism becomes more of the Republican Party instead of true conservatism that the party was originally built on, true conservatives may leave the party or the Tea Party may become a real separate party onto itself.
