  • Rand Paul Goes After Ted Cruz: ‘I’ve Given 13-Hour Speeches Without Calling Anyone Names’

    The Blaze ^ | January 3, 2016 | Kaitlyn Schallhorn, weekend editor
    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's personality could be a hinderance to his campaign, fellow GOP presidential contender Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said on Sunday. During an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Paul criticized Cruz's handling of disagreements with leadership -- referencing the time Cruz called Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a liar from the Senate floor. Paul said that unlike Cruz, he is able to keep his arguments with leadership to a professional level. "I've given 10-hour speeches, 13-hour speeches without calling anybody names, but talking about the history of our country, the importance of the Bill of Rights, the importance...

    Two Hispanics, a diminutive Libertarian and a Donald loomed large in the fifth and thankfully, last Republican debate of 2015. The amigo Senators Rubio and Cruz stole the night "insulting" each other in what can only be described as a full-on duel between the sole Hispanics running. This was also the first time Senator Rand Paul had some strong moments, while Trump sustained his triumphant position with even more verbal firepower. Rubio vs Cruz "And you know, there was one commentator that put it this way that, for Marco to suggest our record's the same is like suggesting ‘the fireman...

    NEW LONDON, N.H. Jeb Bush invoked the names of two rivals for the Republican presidential nomination as he waded into the debate over birthright citizenship and immigration on Thursday, saying that Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida might not be able to run for president if some in the conservative wing of the Republican Party had their way. In response to a question at a restaurant here Thursday about the 14th Amendment, which allows children born in the United States to become citizens regardless of the legal status of their parents, Mr. Bush said, The...

    Since Marco Rubio was born in the U.S. to the parents that were not U.S. citizens, does that make him an anchor baby? I personally think at least one parent should be a U.S. citizen before citizenship is granted upon birth. I haven't really seen many people talking about this.

    The war of words between two likely 2016 contenders over President Obamas sweeping changes to Cuba policy heated up further on Saturday, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) repeatedly blasting remarks from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) as rude. I never start a fight but I'm happy to finish a fight, Paul told Fox News Channels The Kelly File on Friday. You know, I think the remarks were a little bit rude and intemperate. In an interview on the same show one night prior, Rubio said that Paul who supports President Obamas move to roll back trade and travel restrictions and...

    Noah already wrote a policy rebuttal to Pauls position, which Paul elaborated on this afternoon in a new op-ed at Time. (The op-ed, unlike his tweets, doesnt mention Rubio by name. Although it does approvingly cite George W. Bush?) Anyone want to make the case that the politics of attacking Rubio on this issue were smart, at least? I cant figure out why Rand would do it. When I tweeted out my surprise a few hours ago, a dozen people tweeted back, Maybe Pauls just saying what he really believes. No doubt. But the thing that distinguishes Rand from...

    He may be a right-wing nut, but the Texas senator can beat a Democrat in a general election. Here's why Theres been some more buzz this week about Ted Cruzs presidential prospects. The demagoguing senator took his first trip to Iowa just six months after being sworn in to office, and hes pretty clearly reaching for the White House. Early reports are that its going well. And Rich Yeselson wrote a high-profile (and fascinating) essay arguing that, basically, Cruz is perfectly positioned for reaching the top of the Republican ticket. The focus of this piece is on Cruzs general election...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced Monday evening that he will renounce his Canadian citizenship, less than 24 hours after a newspaper pointed out that the Canadian-born senator likely maintains dual citizenship. Now the Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship, Cruz said in a statement. Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but Im an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American. SNIP Because I was a U.S. citizen at birth, because I left Calgary when I was 4...

    WASHINGTON Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say. That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag pull out his Calgary, Alberta,...

    The Constitution says that only "natural born citizens" are eligible to be president. Is Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas eligible, given that he was born in Canada of a U.S. citizen mother and a Cuban immigrant father? If Cruz runs, 2016 will be the third consecutive election in which there were questions about the right of a major party candidate to serve. Unfortunately, the Framers left few clues about exactly what a "natural born citizen" is; Congress has not used the phrase in citizenship statutes since 1790.

    Via the Daily Caller. I believe him, but if Cruz jumps into the presidential race and starts gobbling up Paul’s support among tea partiers in Iowa, I wonder how many Paul fans — and Hillary fans — will be willing to take a “closer look” at the issue.This wasn’t the only mention of Cruz’s eligibility on CNN yesterday either. They devoted an entire segment to it during Wolf Blitzer’s show, as you’ll see below. Maybe Birtherism is another issue, like aggressive counterterrorism and unilateral executive action, on which the press will take a more respectful, nuanced line now that doing...

    A new poll of likely Hispanic voters in the 2016 presidential election shows strong support for the two candidates seen as potential Democratic nominees: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Biden. The survey, by Latino Decisions, also revealed Republican candidates continue to significantly trail among Hispanic voters, with even champions of immigration reform like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush significantly behind top Democrats. That deficit could again prove significant in 2016, when the pollsters estimate that the Hispanic vote will approach 12.5 million. In 2012, exit polls suggested 71 percent of Hispanic...
