In a continued effort to find ANY dirt on Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) , the left has resorted to making up MEAN STUDY HABITS. Uh ok.
The Harvard Crimson published a blog post yesterday against Ted Cruz resuscitating the rumor that that Cruz, while at Harvard Law School, would only study with other students from Ivy League colleges- Harvard, Princeton or Yale, stating: “But when Senator Ted Cruz—a 1995 Harvard Law School graduate and Republican from Texas—was a student at HLS, his own study groups had an admissions standard almost as inflated as his own ego.”
GQ in their featured article on Cruz (released this week) already had to print a retraction after one of Cruz’s study buddies (from Northwestern no less) came forward and disputed the rumors.
Meanwhile liberal icon and famed Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz ranked Sen. Ted Cruz among his school’s smartest students ever. “He was always very active in class, presenting a libertarian point of view. He didn’t strike me as a social conservative, more of a libertarian,” said Dershowitz. “He had brilliant insights and he was clearly among the top students, as revealed by his class responses.”
Cruz “was an outstanding student in my class,” Dershowitz said. “Without a doubt he is among the smartest students I’ve ever had… I’ve had great students but he has to be at the top of anyone’s short list, in terms of raw brain power. Cruz’s “career has not surprised me. I thought he would go on to accomplish important things.”
Dershowitz says he and Cruz would often debate issues presented in Dershowitz’s criminal law class. “Cruz’s views were always thoughtful and his responses were interesting,” the law professor explained. “I obviously disagreed with them and we had good arguments in class. I would challenge him and he would come up with very good responses.”
