Looks like a male Republican tear to me.

Yeah, but that pesky requirement didn’t stop President Schwarzzenneggerrr, either.

He was Canadian too? I thought he was built in Texas by SkyNet.

I, for one, welcome the coming era of terrible logo design choices as every candidate decides they need to emulate the brand strategy of the Obama campaign as much as possible without putting any actual thought or skill into the attempt.

Requirement is “Citizen, non-naturalized”. :hankey:

In addition to the questionable imagery, if you scroll down to the bottom of his page you can also see that his graphics guys don’t understand how transparency works as the US flag colors of the logo are represented as red, grey, and blue.

If it were only that simple. Let’s see Ted’s birth certificate and proof that he renounced Canadian citizenship, and then spend 8 years asking to see it again.

Yes, Ted Cruz was born in Canada. His mother was a US citizen. They returned to the US in 1974 when he was four years old.

Also:

I hope we can refrain from having a Democratic version the the “birthers” conspiracy.

Can’t we just agree that wherever he’s from, he’s an arsehole, and move on?

He might be eligible to be President, but he isn’t suitable.

Old article, but it popped up in my Twitter feeds yesterday.

And this is why I’ve been saying since Ted Cruz replaced Michele Bachmann as the King of the Tea Partiers that the reaction to Cruz in the senate is simply the reaction Ted’s gotten at least at every stage of his life since he arrived at college in 1988. An incredibly bright guy who’s an arrogant jerk who basically everybody ends up hating.

I assume that even the socks Ted Cruz is wearing have been run past a focus group. I wonder what they thought this logo looked like.

I’m completely with you there. He scares the bejabbers out of me because he’s just the right mix of bat-shit crazy and smart to be able to make a go of it.

But where is the conspiracy? He’s open about his birth place (Canada) the ‘birthers’ were lying about Obamas. No conspiracy…

It’s kinda appropriate that it looks like a big, juicy, delicious drop of precious petroleum.

Ted running for prez is a great thing for Canadians. It got him to finally renounce his Canadian citizenship in 2013, so Canadians are free of the possibility of him showing up and demanding his birthright.

There’s enough home-grown nuts in Canada without needing to import more of them from the USA.
