Revealed: The Drunken Harvard Law School Escapades of Ted Cruz

Via the Boston Globe:

In the US Senate, the Tea Party Republican from Texas has continued to seek out a spot at center stage. His enemies — and he has many, including some in his own party — characterize him as power-hungry, self-righteous, driven by single-minded political piety. He even mounted what detractors called a groundless witch hunt, against the presidential nominee for secretary of defense.

None of which, to his former Harvard Law classmates, is surprising.

Interviews with more than two dozen alumnae and professors fill in a portrait of Cruz, in Cambridge two decades ago, that would be fully recognizable to those who know him now in Washington. He made a lasting impression as someone both arrogant and pretentious, as well as someone unwilling to yield or compromise.

But he was also universally respected for his intellect, described by friend and foe alike as brilliant but with a hard edge.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Lame.

Cruz is the establishment choice for a pseudo Tea Party representative.

Usually, all you need to do to find the establishment choice is look for a connection to the Council on Foreign Relations and the banking system. In this case, look no further than Ted Cruz's wife.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Actually,

I thought the article was quite good, they really didn't succeed in exposing anything that any kid in college might do...guess he didn't smoke crack like Obama.

Boston Globe who?

They can piece together a picture of a tea party senator's college days, BUT CANNOT find a single sole who knew Communist Chief Obamie.

WOW, now I'm impressed.

Enter Aqua Buddha stage right...

oh wait wrong script.

Cut!

OMFGWTFBBQ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A college kid who drinks to excess?!?!?!?! What next? The sky is blue?

Seriously? This is "news"? Hell, I'm an engineer and if this is what you find as a deal breaker for somebody then you probably don't want to use anything I helped design or maintain.

Look, if you don't like Cruz then fine; that is your choice and we can all get behind the fact that you make up your own mind. However, if you're going to call Cruz out on something then how about looking at his voting record and pointing bad votes out?

Now, where was my whiskey? All this typing has made me thirsty.

Drinking in college!?

What a scandal. Next we'll hear about how he actually had sex with his wife to have kids.

Oh give it up! Trying to

Oh give it up! Trying to uncover damaging college days hi jinks from decades ago is irrelevant and silliness. If this is a distraction to try and justify the outing of Obama's lies, deceptions and frauds, it pales in any comparison to this president's false persona and seedy private life.

What do you expect?

Where did he get the coin to go to Harvard btw?

Harvard is a very liberal university. I bet he admires Coulter as well.

Imo I canot be bothered with him.

Seriously? You are going to judge the guy by what he did or didn't do with regards to alcohol as a university student?

Cruz is a louse being propped up by alex jones.

The sooner people stop talking about him like he stands for liberty, the sooner we can get on with the movement.

Alex Jones is propping up Cruz?

I recall only one infowars article calling out cruz for the pit viper he is.

Even still AJ Harley mentions ones name without the other. Even then,Cruz supports a limited aspect of vs Alexander beer not to long ago

And Ron Paul.

Don't forget that endorsement.

Ron paul hasnt said much about ted cruz in the last year.

Ted had my endorsement as much as that was worth back when I felt differently about him.

Times change as opinions do.

Ah, the skeletons rattle and clatter!

Most of us have at least a few of 'em, and they're always a hoot! (If--as many say--"The clothes make the man", then "The skeletons make the politician!")

What would the Founders do?

Ted Cruz: man of the people.
