Now, back to the discussion. Ted Cruz has always found himself on the outside, agitating and upsetting the establishment apple cart:
CAMBRIDGE — As the lights rose, Ted Cruz held center stage, dressed in black and kneeling at a bedside. The first-year student at Harvard Law School delivered his lines with the emotions of a man gripped by anger, fear, and worry for his reputation.
“Do you understand that I have many enemies?” he thundered. “There is a faction that is sworn to drive me from my pulpit. Do you understand that?”
Cruz, then a devoted amateur thespian, was playing the role of the Rev. Samuel Parris in “The Crucible,” Arthur Miller’s allegorical play about McCarthyism.Harvard professors praise him::
“Off the charts brilliant,” is what legendary liberal Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said of his former student in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer a year ago.Butt, Cruz wasn’t the only “stand out” student at Harvard:
Dershowitz had trouble rating another former Harvard student, Barack Obama, who despite multiple attempts couldn’t get into Dershowitz’s class.Butt I digress,
“The computer kept him out,” Dershowitz said. “It wasn’t my fault.”
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.
“He never really had an off switch with his debater’s demeanor,” said Ted Ruger, who was president of the Harvard Law Review during Cruz’s third year. “We just realized that was the way a discussion with Ted was going to go. If you expected something different, you came away shaking your head.”
Logic and the “Rule of Law” was the standard applied to Republican and Democrat alike”
Cruz said Princeton's president, Harold Shapiro, had "blatantly violated the spirit of the honorary degree process" when he bypassed the faculty-student council and granted an honorary degree to then-President George H.W. Bush.
