Freshman senator Ted Cruz is considering a presidential run, according to his friends and confidants.
Cruz wont talk about it publicly, and even privately hes cagey about revealing too much of his thought process or intentions. But his interest is undeniable.

Born in Alberta, Canada...
I still like him.
Works for me as well. Palin or Cruz. Someone in that vein. Otherwise, the GOP is not getting my vote. I already started the process of ending my lifelong Republican support and voting record last year. Left most of the ballots blank. Ballots I’d previously always gone down the list, checking each and every “R” candidates.
Rubio is a fake conservative, that is now clear.
Cruz is a real conservative.
To an American mother who was working in the Oil Fields... This is not an issue... Or we may be opening up a Mombassan can of worms...
I love him, but, sorry, not a NBC.
Let’s see what shakes out. I believe he is a NBC
Like McLame, the senate will give him a pass. This man is presidential material. Few freshman senators have the balls of Ted Cruz. I love re-watching ‘senior hag’ Frankenfeinstein confirming that she is NOT a 6th grader. Haha. He’s a social and economic conservative, a man of steel. I think if it comes down to Ted and some establishment hack, (Krispy Kreme, Jeb, pro-homo adoption Ryan),then talk radio and conservative media should go all in behind him to defeat the legions of Rove.
The more I observe Cruz, the more I think he is going to run.
Yeah, a freshman senator isn’t the best choice to be the chief executive...no matter HOW appealing his ideology.
And I like Cruz. A lot.
My observation is that governors make the most effective and best presidents. They know (generally speaking) how to delegate, they’ve had to budget, they must work with legislators, and they are keen on leading public opinion when necessary as well as listening to people within the public.
All 100 senators think they ought to be President. And the last Senator that was allowed to occupy the Oval Office was (and is) a disaster.
Look at sitting Senators put there: Warren G. Harding, John F. Kennedy, and the current Clown. JFK is lauded because he was martyred...would he be as celebrated today if not? I don’t know, but I bet his legacy would not be as shiny.
Just my opinion, but governors are where we need to find our next president.
Keep your powder dry Ted, its too early.
Even Cruz is squishy on illegal immigration, though not as bad as Rubio. So is Rand Paul.
We’re really being betrayed by all of them on a fundamental issue that will assure conservatives are in the minority in the future.
I am in... his mother was an American that loved this republic... more than I can say for obama’s slut mom and drunk marxist, muslim sperm donor.
Ideology is the key. He can hire the folks to execute the vision. Execution without the vision would be another Bush.
He (Cruz) was born to two US citizen parents (at the time of his birth) on US controlled territory? I was unaware of that.
The problem we have today is a President that has sympathies to other things that are non-American. That can be directly related to his non-US citizen Father.
The Founders were wise. I trust them.
Natural born means no allegiances, EVER, to anything but America.
Hope you’re right.
As I said, I like Cruz.
