Former colleague on Ted Cruz: ‘he is uniquely the right person to lead America at this time in its history’
A Washington, DC attorney who has worked closely with presidential candidate Ted Cruz wrote a detailed article about his personal experience with the man seeking the republican nomination for president.
Theodore A. Gebhard worked with Ted Cruz “as a colleague at the Federal Trade Commission from-2001 until he left the commission to return to Texas in 2003.”
Gebhard writes in part:
In this capacity, I was able to observe Ted’s professional skills, his personal characteristics, and, significantly, his commitment to constitutionalism, the rule of law, and free-market economics. These personal observations impel me to conclude not only that Ted possesses the qualifications to be president in terms of intellect, temperament, and knowledge of the issues facing the country; but even more importantly, that he is uniquely the right person to lead America at this time in its history.
As a tribute to his intellect Gebhard noted that although Cruz has no experience in the antitrust field, he “made himself into a superb antitrust lawyer and policy thinker.” Gebhard writes:
“Observing this feat at first hand left me in awe of Ted’s superior intellect. He is surely one of smartest persons I have ever known.”
Gebhard goes much deeper into his experience with Cruz, and ultimately observes:
“…it is clear that Ted Cruz is superior to all other candidates respecting his understanding of and commitment to America’s founding constitutional order, including federalism, the separation of powers, and the protection of individual liberty against government coercion.”
