Senator Ted Cruz’ announcement yesterday that he would be a candidate for the Presidency of the United States sent the American Left into a complete, headless-chicken terror. The Left are terrified that Senator Cruz can — and will — win the Presidency in 2016.
Not only did Senator Cruz have the ‘audacity’ (from the perspective of the Left) to announce his candidacy, he had the tactical brilliance to do it on the fifth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare,”) thereby neutralizing any positive press the White House may have hoped to obtain from that occasion.
The anti-Cruz drones received their laughingly predictable talking points and began to swarm:
- “Cruz is ineligible to run for President because he was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Show us your birth certificate, Ted!”
After six years of insisting that Barack Obama’s birth certificate didn’t matter, this is beyond parody. But, for the terminally obtuse, Ted’s mother was born in Delaware, so Ted is an American citizen by birth. Ted has shown his birth certificate to anyone who’s cared to see it.

“Ted wants to repeal Obamacare, so he doesn’t care about the millions of people who will lose health insurance as a result.”
Having health insurance and being able to use it are two different things — a ridiculously high deductible is effectively the same as being uninsured for most Americans under Obamacare, so they’re just throwing away their monthly premiums. Obamacare fans didn’t show the came concern for the millions who lost health insurance they liked before the passage of Obamacare, so their current disingenuousness at Cruz’ vow to repeal Obamacare is totally self-serving.

So, we know who scares the Left out of their pajamas.
GO, TED, GO!
