Will America elect another “Non-White” President???!!!

133cruz

From NRO yesterday:

Freshman senator Ted Cruz is considering a presidential run, according to his friends and confidants.

Cruz won’t talk about it publicly, and even privately he’s cagey about revealing too much of his thought process or intentions. But his interest is undeniable.

“If you don’t think this is real, then you’re not paying attention,” says a Republican insider. “Cruz already has grassroots on his side, and in this climate, that’s all he may need.”

“There’s not a lot of hesitation there,” adds a Cruz donor who has known the Texan for decades “He’s fearless.”

From the Wall Street Journal two months ago:

Mr. Cruz's triumph also shows the degree to which the GOP now has a growing number of NON-white rising stars.

    It appears Cruz is made of sterner stuff than Rubio, who's starting to look like Penelas. But of course, they're both people of color. Who ever heard of a white Cuban?

    We need fearless--badly. The McCain approach will NEVER work, and neither will treating Dems like decent people. I still cringe when I think back to the Ryan-Biden debate, or the pathetic “Candy was dandy” crack from the Romney camp after the presidential debate moderated by that Crowley hack. Either we fight fire with fire, or we're toast.

    This entire racial codification of all Hispanics as non-whites has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. BUT then again we have become a country where politics [not logic] rules and in today's world [THANK YOU MALDEF, NATIONAL COUNCIL OF LA RAZA and all of the other Brown Power folks ] LATEENOS are all BROWN even if they are white. Hey, I've seen websites that describe the very European actors, Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem as not white.
