Synopsis: NEW - UPDATED EDITION SYNOPSIS: In this researched biography of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Independent author Mario Broes has gathered together excerpts from an impressive array of articles and other media material—both from the left, the right and many in between. Although the latest edition missed the recent admissions that he smoked pot in his youth and gambled away $1,800 as a student, the book contains many other personal revelations about this 2016 GOP presidential candidate. The author also sifted through thousands of blogs to add another interesting—often humorous—dimension to the book. Ted Cruz’s story is a remarkable one from his inspiring youth and student days to later as a top lawyer and astute politician as well as a caring family man. His Harvard law professor called him “off-the-charts brilliant.” As a U.S. Senator he soon became a powerful figure on the national political scene where he has been called a “bomb thrower” and “a Kamikaze pilot.” All this is insightfully described. The chapters on Cruz’s first two years as a junior U.S. Senator (2013-2014) were fittingly named “Defund Obamacare” and ”Blocking President Obama at Every Turn.” The author also shows how Cruz was both “a Master and a Pawn” of the media. The last two chapters deal with Cruz as a “Trouble Maker” in a divided Republican Party and his 2016 presidential prognosis. Ted Cruz’s father Rafael played a dominant role in shaping his son’s life. His father grew up in Cuba in the 1950’s at the time of the Castro revolution. The author researched the history of Cuba, America's influence, and the prevailing conditions at the time. He has written a short fictional story about it, which comprises the Appendix. Enjoy reading this intriguing presentation of the man who may one day be president of the USA.
