One on One with Ted Cruz in Miami: Sarah is Amazing. Why He Should Run.

By Isabel Matos

“Sarah said God bless you. She wrote it,” I pointed to the picture, he leaned over, looked straight into my eyes and said: “She is a.m.a.z.i.n.g.” That was the brief exchange not caught on camera. It was the “moment”. His words were deliberate, genuine and unequivocal. He admires Sarah. The noise in the room, the glare of the lights, the chatter and commotion disappeared just for that moment. All of it. Gone. Frozen in time. It was awesome. He carefully chose where to sign his name, too, and did not ruin the little “treasure” which had traveled from Texas to Alaska, from Wasilla to Miami. What more can one ask?

Now on to politics. Why it’s a no-brainer for Ted Cruz to run for president.

Ted Cruz should run for President for several reasons. He generates excitement and hope. He can energize crowds and engage voters in this effort.  It’s not just about electing him. Decency oozes out of him. He gets a bit flustered being off-stage (that could just be a logistical problem by organizers) but people are drawn to him.  Sarah is very comfortable off stage and in a crowd. She takes her time but Ted also is comfortable enough and has star power just like she does. He’s professorial but not stuffy.  He explains things in a way that people understand without feeling lectured to. I could listen to him for hours. Other adjectives come to mind: he is civil, respectful and statesmanlike. He elevates the discourse and connects with Republican voters as well as the base.  He merges them. His message is not a trap even though there is some pandering. I have a solid impression people like him. His Reagan-inspired oratory is uplifting and optimistic.  Did I mention he connects with Establishment voters? That is the key here. He is connecting with voters who left the party because the party left them.  In our neck of the woods, it means winning over Rubio Republicans.

Ted Cruz would raise his profile and get more recognition by running for president, increasing the value of his endorsements. His support of Sarah Palin for President would only help her because of that endorsement value. His style is anti-establishment but not to the point of turning off voters or making them feel there is too much change.  Too much change makes establishment voters nervous. He is definitely not GOPe but a Palin/Cruz ticket would be a good merger without compromising the grassroots cause. It’s a new day in America, and people are ready for a woman president, but those old male fogies and jealous Republican wives still have an issue with it and it’s too much of a risk.

This ticket would be exciting, attractive and filled with vision and promise. Ted is not threatened by strong women like GOPe cry babies (it is true!) He would bring out the best in her presidential run because he understands what she’s about yet would still be mindful of the (Rino) faction that needs to be dealt with, a faction he has dealt with for the last two years in D.C.  The two have obvious respect for one another. He may not have executive experience like she does, but no matter what Ted does we will all be better served by it.  Sarah is my first and has been my only choice for the presidency since 2012. It would be a shame to dismiss Ted Cruz as a presidential nominee who would help her revive the party of Ronald Reagan which so many have always been in support of.

There is hope with a team like Sarah and Ted. It is almost too exciting to think about. We can be secure again under the leadership of these two courageous and centered individuals. They will help restore our greatness and bring the power of the people back to the city on a hill to make it shine even brighter than before.

    The issue will not be that Ted Cruz happened to be born over the border with Canada. The issue will be that Ted Cruz did not have a father who was an American Citizen when he was born, not even a questionable dual citizenship/loyalty father. Cruz would be great as AG, but you do not want to give the flat-lining Dems such a powerful issue to revitalize them.

    Stick with the conservative powerhouses that have no Obama-like issues, especially those who have already been vetted.

    • Isabel Matos

      There’s nothing more flat-lining than the way you are approaching this.

      The point of the article was that he should run. And that he would make a great vice president.

      You cannot compare Ted Cruz to Barack Obama. Obama is un-American because he hates this country. Where he was born has nothing to do with it. By the way nothing was ever proven anyway. Ask Joe Arpaio who has milked this issue for years.

      The argument that he was not born of two parents is welcome here but not valid. It’s like saying a great essay cannot be great because of a punctuation or spelling error. The original statement was written to mean that a president should be American in spirit. They just framed it to have the mother and father.

      Best to spend time on who is corrupt and who isn’t. Some candidates running already are by their ties to known GOP enemies and infiltrators close to the Muslim Brotherhood. That should concern you more. If you read the article before this one you will see that corruption IS the greatest justification for the left to dominate and control.

      Below is an excerpt:

      “What won’t prevent Cruz from becoming president is his place of birth. Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, while his parents were living there. His father is now an American citizen, but was not at the time; his mother, however, was born in the United States.

      Helpfully, the Congressional Research Service gathered all of the information relevant to Cruz’s case a few years ago, at the height (nadir?) of Obama birtherism. In short, the Constitution says that the president must be a natural-born citizen. “The weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion appears to support the notion that ‘natural born Citizen’ means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship ‘at birth’ or ‘by birth,’ including any child born ‘in’ the United States, the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parents who has met U.S. residency requirements,” the CRS’s Jack Maskell wrote. So in short: Cruz is a citizen; Cruz is not naturalized; therefore Cruz is a natural-born citizen, and in any case his mother is a citizen.”

    All people that consider themselves constitutional conservatives need to read this blog. http://www.newswithviews.com/JBWilliams/williams279.htm As much as we may think Sen Cruz does good work in the Senate he can NEVER be VP or POTUS. The same holds true for Rubio, Santorum & Jindal. For those that ask about Rick Santorum, the guy in PA that lead our team to take Obama to Court to have him tossed off the ballot did not get the FOIA on Rick’s dad until after the 2012 election. Aldo Santorum (dad) was not a US citizen when Rick was born.

      Sorry, but you and JB are wrong. Here is a link for you.

      Just stop it! Cruz is a “natural born” US citizen because his MOTHER is a natural born US citizen.

      Too many people THINK they know the laws on this, but don’t. Congress settled what was natural born a long, long, long time ago. The notion of natural born is older than the United States itself, as is what constitutes natural born.

      BTW, even if Obama was born in Africa, rather than Hawaii, he’d be natural born as well, because his mother was.

      Hillary Clinton’s idiot buddy Phillip Berg started all of this “birther” crap back in 2008. He went after McCain as well. [Smilin' Johnny was born in Panama] It was stupid then, stupider now.

      Oh, and unlike Obama, no one has to worry about Ted Cruz’s strong love for America. It’s REAL.

      • Greg Pickens

        Totally agree. I am getting tired of the baseless Ted is Canadian argument. I have noticed that 9 times out of ten this argument is put forth by Paulbots.

      • Isabel Matos

        9 times out of… ?

      • Gary P Jackson

        Paultards make me tired. The insanity among that group is off the charts. Throw in the ones who follow Alex Jones and OMFG! I could go on forever, but I would violate my websites’ own policy against profanity!

        I was hoping Rand would be better than his idiot father, but I’ll be damned if he isn’t worse!

        I’m down to roughly 3 politicians I trust: Soon to be Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Ted Cruz, and of course, Sarah Palin, who I trust unconditionally.

    Hi Isabel
    Very good article. I am envious as I have not yet had a chance to meet Ted Cruz in person yet.
    I am a huge fan of Sarah but I think this is Ted’s time. Do not get me wrong, I will happily take either one. I desperately wanted Sarah to run in 12 but she elected not to which I respected but was not happy about. I absolutely believe that Ted is the man for the time. He is extremely articulate, an imposing debater with a concrete grasp on Conservatism and he has an superb ability to relay Conservatism in a way that non-political types can understand. He has a wickedly keen mind for politics and strategy and there will really be no one on the other side able to match him on the stump or the podium.
    With all that said. if Ted decides not to run then I am all out again for Sarah to run. I do not see any other alternatives within our party (fast becoming “not my party”)
    By the way, the day after tomorrow I am going to see our favorite person, Sarah, in person ….. FINALLY! She is here in East Tennessee at a Tea Party Rally along with Alan West, Judge Jeanine and Santorum and we have tickets! Hopefully, I will get lucky and get a chance to shake her hand and tell her how much I admire her and what she has done for our country. I am hoping that she will endorse our Senate candidate, Joe Carr, so we can finally get rid of Lamar. Let’s hope TW and McDaniels kick some RINO rear tomorrow!

    • Isabel Matos

      The likelihood of shaking her hand is less likely but it depends on a lot of things. I’m thinking of the Lonegan rally in New Jersey where security kept people at a distance. You can get really great pictures though, just try to get there early to be as close to the stage as possible. Good luck. Do tell us how it went! (I mean it.)

      • Greg Pickens

        Don’t worry. I will let you know how it went. There was one certain way of being able to meet her but it required a $1,000.00 dinner ticket which was a bit rich for my blood. Of course, if I had a grand to blow I would have :)

  4. Gary P Jackson

    Great job Isabel!

  5. I agree with Gary!! Great job Isabel! And you know how I feel about a Palin-Cruz ticket ( http://www.palin-cruz.org/ ). I think it is the answer for the GOP in 2016!! I think Sarah is the key (http://wp.me/p1dXJI-6an) and the GOP’s answer for both beating Hillary and the Dem’s carrot of electing the first female president. ( http://askmarion.wordpress.com/2014/04/29/sarah-palin-the-case-for-a-palin-candidacy-for-president-in-2016/ ) Add Ted and the ticket addresses a lot demographic as well as common GOP weak areas.
