What do you think about the fact that Ted Cruz will not attend the State of the Union Address?
I saw a brief interview with Cruz on the news tonight where he proudly announced he would not be attending this event because there would be nothing new. Furthermore, he said he felt the president would reach a higher level of Demagoguery than ever and he would only be presenting a "wish list". I found this upsetting because at the very least, despite their differences, our leaders should show at least some level of respect for the office, if not the man. Anybody agree?
I think it is indicative of how he will make decisions prior to discovery on any issue he doesn't like, in spite of the possibility of learning something.
I disagree, Cruz is just bandstanding for political purposes. He should as he puts it 'respect the office' if nothing else.
Ted Cruz shut down the government and cost the taxpayers a bundle. He is not a natural born citizen. Now we learn he didn't disclose his $500,000 loan from the banking industry. Ted Cruz will never win the GOP nomination.
If I had been born a few weeks later, would have been born on an Air Force base in England,wouldn't have made me a Brit.! His mother, like mine,born in the U.S.A. He explained the loan to my satisfaction. For the sake of our future, hope he wins!
Birth on a US military base is the same as 'natural born.' That's why McCain's birth was never an issue. However, being born in a hospital or home on foreign land is not the same as 'natural born.' The loan doesn't pass the smell test.
An air force base is considered American soil. Different situation here.
Cruz is in the midst of a tough campaign.
I'd rather he miss the Narcissist-in-Chief speaking, over an important vote.
Time is of the essence, I get it.
His mother was born in the U.S. and his Father became a U.S. citizen through legal avenues, long before Ted was born. He is a U.S. citizen! Non-issue.
He was not born on American soil, and this is a sticking point with regards to legal issues. Check out the forums to learn more. It's a very confusing and controversial situation with no clear answers.

Is Ted Cruz more of a jerk than an effective statesman? Why or why not? What is your opinion of him?Cruz is apparently hated by many in his own Party. Is he a mere opportunist or is he a patriot? The words of Franklin Roosevelt come to mind: "They are unanimous in their hate for...
