Oh, the Irony… Daily Beast Publishes Hit Piece on Cruz From College …(They Actually Found People Who Knew Him!)

Isn’t it odd that fellow political science majors at Columbia University have no recollection of Barack Obama. Yet, the liberal media already published a report on Ted Cruz at Princeton, including an interview with his first roommate.

It sure didn’t take the media long to dig up the goods on Ted Cruz.
The Daily Beast reported:

When Craig Mazin first met his freshman roommate, Rafael Edward Cruz, he knew the 17-year-old Texan was not like other students at Princeton, or probably anywhere else for that matter.

“I remember very specifically that he had a book in Spanish and the title was Was Karl Marx a Satanist? And I thought, who is this person?” Mazin says of Ted Cruz. “Even in 1988, he was politically extreme in a way that was surprising to me.”

By Mazin’s account and those of multiple members of Princeton’s class of 1992, the Ted Cruz who arrived as a college freshman in 1988 was nearly identical to the man who arrived in Washington as a freshman Republican senator in 2013: intelligent, confident, fixated on conservative political theory, and deeply polarizing.

Professor Jacobson notes the DB’s offensive headline – something they would never dare do with Barack Obama.
