Speech. Guy went to Princeton and Harvard. How does that fit into the FCP weltanschauung?

That a Tea Partier can come out of Princeton or Harvard only goes to show that AmeriSoc still has some work to do. But then Solzhenitsyn came out of Rostov State. The finest of Despotisms can never fully account for the human soul.

But be reassured that no mere facts as to who went where or studied what has any bearing on the MSM Party Line.
Take, for example, the following comment from a Washington Post announcement of Mr. Cruz's victory.

Yippee!

Another ignorant, inbred redneck get's to go help destroy the Peoples Government!

Yeehaw Cletus!"


Nothing Charly wouldn't spout.

Pinko and the Brain. The above comment just about sums up the level these guys operate at.

At any rate, going back to Cruz: I haven't really followed his campaign up to now. Is he some Texas version of Rubio? Cruz sounds more kulturny than Rubio, but Rubio sounds smoother.

Tecumseh said...

Funny: Charly has one of his typical Pavlovian reactions:

Kind of amazing how these folks wear hate like a badge of honor RT @janecummins: Cruz has Chick-Fil-A at victory party #txrunoff

"This is a victory for the grassroots, We should take it as a providential sign that today would be the 100th birthday of Milton Friedman," [Cruz] said.

Milton Friedman talking plain, good sense. Charly calls clear thinking like that Mein Kampf and Tecs attributes this to Princeton and yachts or something.

Tecs, I couldn't open Cruz' speech for something. Rubio is a very poor speaker, in my estimation, but he's better-looking than Cruz and, sadly, women vote.
What's encouraging is that we seem to have a crop of politicians of Cuban descent. When I was a kid, my father worked for the US welfare department in Brownsville, Texas. There were many Cuban recent immigrants and he liked them a lot and thought they would do fine though Castro let them out of Cuba with only pocket change and the shirts on their backs.
The reference to Solzhenitsyn earlier brought this to mind. Cruz went to Princeton and Harvard, but his parents learned about politics in a place called Gulag State University. There's no weaselly argument or subtlety there and, for example, Solzhenitsyn learned well. Also, Solzhenitsyn was still pissed off a long time after he got the hell out of Dodge.
There's hope in people like Rubio and Cruz. In Harvtards Obama and Kerry, not one bit.

Mr roT said...

The elder Cruz worked his way through school as a dishwasher making 50 cents an hour. Cruz’s mother, who was from Houston, was the first person in her family ever to go to college. She earned a math degree at Rice University in the 1950s, working summers at Foley’s and Shell.

Of course, AA told the Math Dept. at Rice to take their scholarship money and shove it, because Rice isn't Harvard or Chicago and he had a thirst for indoctrination and blind obedience.
On the other hand, Tecs is howling that Mama Rice should be deported immediately.

Cruz was born in Canada, Herr Rott. How do you process that bit on information?

Mr roT said...

Flowers grow in piles of bovine excrement.

Tecumseh said...

Calgary itself looks pretty awful, but once you get to Banff and Lake Louise, it's beautiful country up there. You should try going there at some point, instead of the same old spot in Courmayeur.

Mr roT said...

As I recall, the best restaurant in Canada was Janet Lynn's in Waterloo, Ontario. The quail grilled with whole peppercorns and bacon were great. I got some pasta dish, but it was no big deal.

Arelcao Akleos said...

If there was a great restaurant in Vancouver I never found it.

Tecumseh said...

Waterloo? You mean, the home of that physicky institute? Never been there, though I've been nearby. Looks like the middle of nowhere, and rather nondescript. But the food can be OK.

The bay in Vancouver, and the mountains around it look nice. But the food ranges from bad to blah; the bad is cheap, yet the blah is more expensive than here.
