Is Ted Cruz Another Obama?


by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 18, 2016) — On March 23, 2015, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz declared hiscandidacy for the presidency on Twitter and later, at Liberty University, a well-known Christian college in Lynchburg, VA.
During his announcement speech, Cruz invoked his “personal history,” which includes travel among Canada, the U.S., Cuba, and Africa, to say, “These are who we are as Americans. And yet for so many Americans, the promise of America seems more and more distant,” Cruz said.
Liberty University President and Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. introduced Cruz, praising him for “standing on principle” and “taking the road less traveled” in a reference to Cruz’s apparent opposition to the Washington establishment since his election to the U.S. Senate in 2012.
At 14:25 in the 76-minute C-Span video of his announcement, Cruz said that he carried over $100,000 in student loans which he “just paid off a few years ago.”
Barack Hussein Obama has also frequently attempted to define “who we are as Americans” and claimed that his student loans totaling $120,000 were not fully paid “until his election to the Senate in 2004.”
Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban-citizen father who reportedly became a Canadian in 1973 after completing the five-year residency requirement.  The elder Cruz then reportedly abandoned his wife and very young son and flew to Houston, TX.
