Ted Cruz is a Harvard school of Law graduate... strike one.
Cruz is a lifetime politician with hardly any experience outside of law and local/regional politics, he has only been a Senator for a couple of years... strike two.
Ted Cruz has played dirty politics right out of the gates, deceiving voters over Ben Carson, being caught in outright lies... strike three.
On top of that, many of his positions are more extreme than Trumps, and he has shown he cannot get along with others to 'make the deal' in the Senate.
Cruz has no business experience, no international experience, and is more likely to be a detached authoritarian 'Bible thumper' type of leader or extremist than Trump.
Our nation does not need an inward looking leader, does not need a leader that may be more determined to focus on social issues (IE - abortion) rather than the economic woes that afflict us... our nation does not need Ted Cruz.
Trump has targeted some of the biggest issues causing our Nation crisis today, while Cruz has not. Trump wants to take on NAFTA, CAFTA ad China's 'favored nation' status, Cruz doesn't even seem aware of why these trade laws are so detrimental to America, let alone wants to do anything about it.
Despite Trump's bombastic personality, he is the best option of the entire bunch running this year, Dem or Rep.
