I thought I remembered that Joseph Farah was being consistent in his birtherism, but I was wrong. After years of claiming that President Obama, who we know was born in the US to an American mother, is not eligible to be president, he’s now effusively supporting Ted Cruz, who we know was born in another country to an American mother.
It’s been a long time since I’ve heard any political figure do what Sen. Ted Cruz did yesterday in his announcement he is seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency.
He delivered an electrifying, motivational, rousing case for liberty – explaining why it’s not too late, why Americans don’t need to lower their expectations, how this country has overcome greater odds in its history…
Make no mistake about Ted Cruz. He is to be taken seriously. He was dismissed as a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Texas. He won going away. He is a Princeton graduate who graduated Harvard Law School at the top of his class. About Cruz, famed Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz had this to say: “Without a doubt he is among the smartest students I’ve ever had. … I’ve had great students but he has to be at the top of anyone’s short list, in terms of raw brain power.”
Cruz has argued before the Supreme Court many times. He’s an expert debater. He is comfortable in his shoes, whether he is defending conservative principles or the principles of his faith.
He is going to be a formidable candidate. More importantly, he’s a breath of fresh air for giving Americans hope again – the kind of hope we haven’t had since Ronald Reagan was articulating his vision of national renewal.
He does it standing on his own two feet without the assistance of a teleprompter – also refreshing after six years of Barack Obama.
I am not making an endorsement for the presidency here. But I am giving Ted Cruz a big hallelujah, a heartfelt amen.
He isn’t even going to pretend that he cares about accuracy or consistency.
