All this talk of his great debating skills and all we have seen, is him debating the media... and winning.

I cannot wait to see Ted Cruz, debate someone.... Anyone.
How about you?



It will be so easy to see, those afraid of Cruz actually getting far enough down the road, to debate their gal.

Cruz is a fringe candidate.

May not win a single primary.

He sounds smart to a dumb audience, though.

Still.... Don't you want to see him debate someone... anyone. Just to see what he really has and what Hillary may eventually have to debate on the real issues facing the nation.

The interesting thing, to me at least, is that in the last few elections "the great debater" lost. Gore, Kerry, Romney to name a few. So, it is not as deciding of a factor as you might think.

Ted Cruz is an attorney who has argued before the Supreme Court. I don't think he has any weakness in his debating skills. Apparently, you are unaware that he is an attorney.

I don't think you need to worry about Ted Cruz in any debate. He can handle himself.

Ho-baggers won't care that he'll wipe the floor with her just as o-baggers didn't care that Romney made Jugears look like a slow witted schoolboy in their debates. Lefties don't vote for substance.

The only thing cruz would have to worry about when debating clinton is not to completly demolishing her and having people feel bad for her because of the shellacking she received.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see some crocodile tears from hillary before this is over, just like in 08.

Cruz would demolish Hillary. She's a BIG GOVERNMENT socialist ("Progressive"). He is a Constitutionalist. Our Constitution will always win over socialism, because it's the power of the people vs. tyranny.
