There are two sure signs that a 2016 White House run by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is in the cards. First, Cruz has released his birth certificate and said he’ll renounce his Canadian citizenship. Second, the mainstream media have begun their probe of Cruz’s past, with the Daily Beast tracking down not only Cruz’s college roommate but “multiple members of Princeton’s class of 1992.”
Ted Cruz's college roommates say he used to wander women's dorm area in a paisley bathrobe, describe him as "creepy" http://t.co/HR47YWt1dh

Those classmates, who didn’t share their names, described the young Cruz as abrasive, intense, strident, creepy, arrogant and intensely disliked. Writer Patricia Murphy also managed to elicit accounts of Cruz’s poker losses and the design on his bathrobe (paisley).
Thanks to the Daily Beast, we now know more about @SenTedCruz in college than Barack Obama in college.

BTW, pretty sure The Daily Beast published the Cruz roomie tell-all as a reason to use the phrase "master debater" in a headline.

The Daily Beast had a story today about Ted Cruz's college days that told more than has been reported on Obama's college days IN FIVE YEARS!

@ResistBorg WOW, Ted Cruz read books and had political conviction in college. Crazy isn't it.?

In today's @dailybeast they will reveal that when Ted Cruz was in college he went to a frat party and drank a beer. A full one.

You people act like the media never looked into Barack Obama’s college years.
If nothing else we now know that people who went to college with Ted Cruz knew who he was. Obama's classmates can't say the same…
