If anything Ted Cruz ever did when he was 19 could possibly be of interest to you, give it a read.
Resolved: Ted Cruz Was His Worst Self as a Presidential Candidate
In his surly, failed campaign, Cruz turned into a cartoon version of the blowhard I knew on the college debate circuit.As you can tell from the subheading the "article" is another fawning media fluff piece. No matter. What I found interesting was the photo of Ted in late 1980 something.
What's important here isn't a Cuban kid with a cigar in his mouth. Look past that. There are 20 names visible on what I assume is a board listing the events participants. I don't see Cruz's name, or know why he seems to be pointing to Bush. None of that's important.
Read the 20 names. How many of those do you recognize? Cruz was an Ivy League boy, attending Ivy League events, with Ivy League friends.
Anybody remember what the Keating family was famous for? Hint S & L scandal. Go through some of the other names. One thing Ted Cruz was not, he was not a political outsider. He was as well connected to as many influential families as anyone could be within one generation of immigrating to America.
