Towards the conclusion of his 2,700 word plus article on Ted Cruz's forthcoming GOP presidential bid announcement, Jeff Lord acknowledges, "Ted Cruz is, of course, not Ronald Reagan. As with every other human on the planet, there was only one Reagan."
Yet this does not prevent Jeff from making 67 other references to Ronald Reagan in his piece.
I just don't see it.
Now don't get me wrong. Ted Cruz has very quickly found his way to the national stage. But then again so did Barack Obama. And much like Obama, he's throwing his hat into ring scarcely two years into his Senate term without much in the way of achievement. While the two men are diametrically opposed ideologically, I see more parallels between Cruz and Obama than I do with Cruz and Reagan.
