We Covered Ted Cruz Back in 2010: Cruz on Obama’s Harvard Background

The last Republican president and his Democratic successor both graduated from schools within Harvard University and that should probably be a literal red flag. “Understanding Harvard Law School is very important to understanding our president, Barack Obama,” Texas attorney Ted Cruz said in an interview with scholar Marvin Olasky that appeared in the November 7, 2009 issue of World magazine. “He is very much a creature of Harvard Law.”

“To understand what that means you have to understand that there were more self-declared communists on the Harvard faculty that there were Republicans,” Cruz avers. “Every single idea this president has proposed in the nine months he’s been in office has been orthodox wisdom in the Harvard faculty lounge.”

Like the current commander-in-chief, a Harvard Law grad himself, Cruz served as solicitor general in the lone star state, the youngest in history to hold that office. “The communists on the Harvard faculty are generally not malevolent; they generally were raised in privilege, have never worked very hard in their lives, don’t understand where jobs and opportunity come from.”

“If you asked the Harvard faculty to vote on whether this nation should become a socialist nation, 80 percent of the faculty would vote yes and 10 percent would think that was too conservative.”
