Ted’s Twisted History

"In Sen. Ted Cruz’s twisted vision of economic history, Ronald Reagan cured double-digit unemployment by cutting spending and reducing the federal debt, and Jimmy Carter was guilty of “out-of-control regulation.”

In the real world:

Total federal spending soared during Reagan’s deficit-plagued first term, and the national debt nearly doubled. His budget director later resigned and wrote a book criticizing Reagan’s failure to cut spending.
And Carter signed landmark bills freeing airline, railroad and trucking rates from federal regulation, easing regulation of natural gas prices and eliminating federal regulation of interest rates paid by banks to small savers...."

Can all those fancy schools he attended get their degrees back?

Ted is a harvard honor graduate.  A U.S. senator at a relatively  early age.  Yet some of the stuff he says is mystifying.

By 2016, he may become better than Sarah Palin at driving off thinking voters.

He believes it just like every right wing fringe politician pandering to the tea hatters.

Very good for Democrat candidates though!  LOL

Which is a pretty good indication that he is simply pandering probably thinking this is what needs to be said in order
to get elected in a Republican primary these days

Factcheck isn't always wrong, and their not wrong about Cruz. At least your first link is a non partisan, independent thinker.
