Ted Cruz released a new campaign video today, this one cleverly playing off a famous 1984 reelection campaign ad by Ronald Reagan, “The Bear in the Woods.”
Some of you surely remember it. Here’s the Reagan ad first.
And now the Cruz ad.
All the candidates tonight will be trying to claim they are just like Reagan.
I don’t think Reagan really claimed to be like anyone else. He didn’t say he was the new Barry Goldwater, although he tipped his hat to him.
The one who compares himself the least to Reagan, it seems to me, is Donald Trump. He claims he’s just like Donald Trump. And that makes him more like Reagan.
