Ted Cruz Biography
Ted Cruz is currently an American Senator who graduated and studied at Harvard Law School and Princeton University. Prior to entering elective politics, he held a number of political positions in both the private and federal sectors. As a United States Senator, he held the governorship of Texas from 1998 until January 2021. From January 2021 to the present he is running for President of the United States on the ticket of Texas.
At this point in his career, Ted Cruz is perhaps best known as a conservative firebrand whose combative style and straightforward policies have earned him the ire not just of his fellow United States Senator John McCain, but also of many prominent politicians and media personalities in the USA and internationally. To be an effective contender in a Presidential contest one would expect a candidate with Cruz’s track record to have a sound understanding of how to best utilize the media in a way to gain support and/or votes.
A review of the biographical facts about Senator Ted Cruz reveals that he was born in Houston, Texas on December 13th, Programme: A Summary of His Life. He is the son of Hispanic parents who came to America in the 1940s seeking a better life. Ted Cruz was described as a shy child who was bullied at school but he is said to have been a rather good student throughout his years at Harvard University (including his time as a clerk for Associate Justice Roy Rawlings in the US Supreme Court).
In the mid-nineties, Ted Cruz decided to challenge the then twenty-nine-year-old conservative US Senator John McCain for a United States Senate seat. During the primary campaign, Ted Cruz attacked Senator McCain on his stance on the Iraq war, which had been unpopular with many Americans at the time. The bitter fighting between the two men came to an end when Senator Ted Cruz defeated Senator McCain by a margin of sixty-one to thirty-three percent. Ted Cruz went on to endorse Senator John McCain for his re-election and served as communications director for the McCain presidential campaign.
Two years later Ted Cruz challenged the popularly elected President George W. Bush for another term as United States president. During the Democratic primary season Ted Cruz became somewhat of a celebrity as he railed against the sitting President Bush on the floor of the convention. Many political pundits proclaimed that this would be a defining battle to see which candidate had a stronger following. Many political insiders believed that Ted Cruz would indeed defeat the then forty-two year old George Bush for the 2021 presidential election.
As the Democratic primary process began to wind down in the summer of 2021 Ted Cruz began to promote his political book, “Ayn Rand” starring Rand Paul. As the political rhetoric grew increasingly negative between Senator Ted Cruz and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton the author of the novel took a lot of heat from some of her fellow Democratic Party members who claimed that she had sold her soul to the Democrats for the presidential nomination.
Senator Ted Cruz declared that the former first lady was a “liberal” and that she had sold her soul to the Democrats for the presidential nomination. Senator Ted Cruz and his political advisors consistently stated that the former Democratic nominee was unfit to be the next president of the united states.
As the fall months approached the tone within the Republican Party began to turn more negative with a number of candidates including Senator Ted Cruz dropping out of the running to endorse President Trump. Some said that Cruz had been forced into this position by Trump’s dominance in the media and within the primary polls and primary vote. Many in Congress have expressed that they could not support a person whom Ted Cruz had personally attacked during the primary election.
Ted Cruz has also made headlines over the course of his career for his controversial comments regarding the impact of the federal stimulus plan on the economic recovery. In the early years of the presidential campaign season, many prominent business leaders were calling for Ted Cruz to drop out of the race citing concerns over his ability to handle the economic recovery as a key to winning the election.
As the fall started to roll into winter the calls for Ted Cruz to drop out of the race for president of the United States became louder and more specific. Many politicians and commentators alike suggested that Ted Cruz was not prepared for the job, a concern that perhaps should have been addressed sooner rather than later during the primary election.
The ten commandments that Ted Cruz was asked to take on in the early parts of the presidential campaign were: We will put an America First agenda; protect and defend the United States of America; get the jobs back at the Carrier Corporation; reduce your taxes; balanced the budget; reduce your national debt; protect religious liberty; reduce regulation, and protect the Constitution. Each of these commandments had a slightly different flavor to them but they came back to the same demand that Ted Cruz was called to perform: To defend and protect the United States of America.
It is amazing how many people feel that it is their duty to tell everyone else what to do and that someone who is not a candidate for president cannot effectively do it. Ted Cruz clearly was and is a man of integrity and a champion for the freedom and strength of our nation.
