    Quite possibly true, but if she ever decided to run I'd support him.



    I quite agree, and its very refreshing.



    I don't like the fact that he would likely make social issues a focal point of his campaign. And can look past them for most cadidates but I'm not sure about him.



    I have several problems with Ted Cruz.

    For one he is more inexperienced than Obama.

    He is the least electable among the candidates.

    He is by all accounts abrasive and egotistical and has managed to make enemies with the majority of both sides in Congress, making it unlikely he would ever be able to do anything as President.

    His support for the government shutdown was extremely flawed. Everybody could see that it had no chance of working. The best case scenario was a wash and the worst case scenario was that it actually helped the Democrats and Obamacare. Both of their numbers were trending upward quickly before thankfully Republican Senators realized it was a bad idea. If the shutdown had lasted longer or the Obamacare rollout wasn't such a disaster, those Obamacare numbers could've stayed up. The fact that Ted Cruz is so intelligent makes me believe he knew his plan only had chances of helping Obamacare, and yet he decided to do it anyway.

    There's no way I could support him.
    1- I agree with his experience - executive experience with foreign policy credentials is impressive, but I've heard he's more liberal. What has he done and/or are his positions on stuff that makes him more conservative?

    2- Brian Sandoval is supporting Obamacare. Here's a link with more information on that. Nevada's Republican governor is 'all in' on ACA - Jennifer Haberkorn - POLITICO.com

    3- You said him? Did you mean her?

    4- Yes.

    5- I think it's important to educate people about those social issues. I don't like all these politicians trying to turn America away from God.

    6- First of all - if he were elected in 2016, he - just like Obama - would have both had 4 years in the U.S. Senate. Ted Cruz was also a Solicitor General of Texas for about 5 years - which technically does sort of count as a Leadership position. Obama was only a State Senator - even if for 8 years. Longer experience but less leadership experience than Ted Cruz.

    Admittedly, it's Ted Cruz' only REAL flaw as a candidate. Everything else you say is pointless. Saying a politician has an ego is like saying a celebrity actor has an ego. It's hard for a person not to have an ego when they are successful. Nonetheless, I don't see Ted Cruz saying "Look at how great I am!" I more-so see him praising his friends in the Senate like Mike Lee and Rand Paul.

    Those "enemies" Ted Cruz made - that people like you always say - as if that is supposed to make me think Ted Cruz is bad? Wrong. All of those people he made "enemies" with - GOOD! MORE POWER TO HIM! I'm not a big fan of his enemies neither! McCain, Graham, Feinstein - I'M GLAD SOMEONE is standing up to the corrupted washington elite. Ted Cruz is a hero.

    Obamacare needs to be defunded, and repealed. The government needed to be shut down. Perhaps then we'd have less people in the Obama Administration and NSA taking away people's freedom and privacy. That "shut down" was more Obama's fault anyway. If he didn't propose such bad policies that he BLATANTLY LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT - thinking he could pass it before anyone would know - and then it was Obama who refused to negotiate.

    Stop letting the media deceive you. It's alright though, you will learn. I will teach you the truth.

    Just trust in what I say more often. I know what I am talking about.

    Gov. Sandoval is a former federal judge as per this article a few weeks back..He is against ACA if you read the article but also believes in following the law..In the end, Gov. Sandoval is wildly popular in Nevada because he puts his people above his party .

    I might've added him if I had more than 10 options. There were others I would've added too, like Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin, Nikki Haley, and some others. I wanted to pick the 9 most likely and still leaving 1 option for "Other".

    I hope he isn't elected President though. We don't need to keep going back and forth with the 8 years of Bush in national office (8 yrs as VP, 4 yrs as Prez), 8 years of Clinton, 8 years of Bush Jr., we don't need any more of that. This isn't a royalty.

    That's the problem. He isn't putting the people above his party.

    He is putting the "law" above the people. That is wrong. No true patriot would enforce a law that is bad for this country.

    Forget the last name, and there's no person more qualified both in intelligence/experience and in temperment for the job of President. Your country has experimented disasterously the past five years with the feel good empty suit and you need to get serious about picking a qualified, competent leader next time around.

    On the other end, I might be convinced to vote democrat if Rick Perry got the nod. I don't trust him.
    Rand Paul accepted Obamacare.

    How about Ted Cruz?

    Christie would be a fine choice, but I've always said Jeb Bush would be the best choice - I had hoped he'd run in 2012 - I think he would have won, had he entered the race.
