. . . if he is eligible to be President.
Anyway, I think Carville may be on to something here. Sad for the Republican Party. The continued death of the Republican Party. A nickname here in Texas for the Canadian-born Cuban is "Sleaze Cruz".
James Carville: Ted Cruz is America’s ‘most talented and fearless Republican’
Sen. Ted Cruz found unlikely praise Sunday from a leading liberal firebrand and political commentator.
James Carville, the Ragin’ Cajun himself, called Cruz a “fearless” leader of a new conservative movement.
“I think he’s the most talented and fearless Republican politician I’ve seen in the last 30 years,” James Carville said on ABC’s “This Week in Politics”. ”I further think that he’s going to run for president and he’s going to create something.”
Speculation and hype over Cruz’s viability as a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate has only grown stronger over the past several months. He’s maintained his position in the spotlight by taking blunt and unyielding positions on issues like guns and drones in the Senate and giving speeches at top Republican gatherings like CPAC and the GOP’s South Carolina Silver Elephant Dinner over the weekend.
Carville said though he can’t say if Cruz would win such a bid for president, the freshman senator is definitely molding a new brand of conservatism. Pointing to Cruz’s recent speech in South Carolina, an early primary state, he said Cruz “is going to be something to watch.”
“I’m not rooting – I’m really sincere here,” Carville said. “Watch him. He does things — when he started talking about William Travis in South Carolina and the Alamo, this is a guy — you go, ‘This guy is something,’ I don’t agree with him. I think he’s out there. But I’m telling you, he’s more talented than all of these other guys.”
