Sen. Ted Cruz Offers a Choice, Not an Echo

When I read the report that Sen. Ted Cruz is going to oppose President Obama’s nomination of Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General, I thought, “There’s a gutsy choice.” I mean, who doubts that Cruz will be bombarded, once again, by the usual liberal hit-men, from Jon Stewart to E.J. Dionne to Rachel Maddow?

Sen. Ted Cruz lit up the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday: “Talk is cheap,” he told conservative activists before he slipped in a Biblical allusion: “The Word tells us you will know them by their fruit.” That is, the proof’s in the pudding.
