Ted Cruzs challenge: The other guys have done things

Ted Cruz put on quite a show as he became the first official candidate for the presidency in 2016.

Speaking without a note or a teleprompter and blending his family story seamlessly with an agenda for radically conservative change under his leadership, Cruz displayed to brilliant effect the smarty-pants skills that led his Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz to say he was the smartest student Dershowitz had ever had.

In any other Republican primary year, a performance like Cruzs Monday morning coupled with his standing as a darling of the partys activist grassroots Right would instantly vault him into the top tier of candidates.

But this isnt any other Republican primary year.

Cruz faces the most impressive field of likely rivals his party has fielded in the modern era since the days when primary voters rather than party bosses first began determining who would be the nominee.

Its not clear that what he has to offer differs all that markedly from others in the race and he possesses negative attributes they do not share.

For example, when it comes to speaking fluently and with complete comfort on a variety of issues, Cruz doesnt have it over his Senate colleague Marco Rubio, who might be the best talker in American politics.

When it comes to his signature claim of being the standard-bearer in the conservative fight against liberal excess, he cannot outdo Gov. Scott Walker, who took on the labor unions and ended collective bargaining for government workers in Wisconsin.

And when it comes to offering concrete solutions to practical problems, almost every other candidate in the race (Rubio included) has specific accomplishments to point to or very specific proposals spelling out how they would achieve the aim of restoring the American dream he and everyone else says has been put in danger by economic trends over the past 40 years and by Barack Obamas policies over the past six.

Cruz does not.

Alan Dershowitz: Netanyahu’s Last-Minute Declaration Was …

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s surprise declaration Monday that if re-elected, he would not support the formation of a Palestinian state came across as a last-minute move of desperation, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum,” where he offered his take on Israel’s elections.

Instead, Dershowitz said Netanyahu should have said that based on the threat of the Islamic State coming into Jordan, it would not make sense for Israel to withdraw its military from the West Bank “at this point in time.” Story continues below video.

Dershowitz, author of “Terror Tunnels: The Case for Israel’s Just War Against Hamas,” also agreed with many pundits who predict that in the absence of a sweeping majority at the polls today, it will likely be some time before the next prime minister is determined.

“In Israel, every election is like our election in the year 2000 when we didn’t know the results for weeks,” he said. “We’ll know how many seats each of the parties or groups have gotten and then the real negotiations begin. The relatively new president of Israel will have to get recommendations from each of the parties that have substantial numbers as to which leader will be asked to form a government.

“Then, there will be all kinds of negotiations with the parties and some of the strangest coalitions may emerge. I don’t think you can count out Netanyahu even if he ends up losing by three, four or even five seats. Though, it is certainly possible there may be a change in government.”

In Israel, the president meets with party leaders after the election and then nominates the member he believes can best form a government. The position is not automatically given to the person with the most seats in the parliament.

Like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Dershowitz opined that the Obama administration is rooting for Netanyahu to be unseated by his main opponent, Isaac Herzog.

“If there is a change in government and Herzog becomes the clear prime minister, the White House will be cheering and there will be some regret and mixed feelings at least from Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt that really want a strong Israeli prime minister to stand up against ISIS and Iran,” he said.

Israeli Arabs could well be the deciding factor in the election’s outcome, according to Dershowitz, who said their participation is “very good for democracy.”

“Many more Israeli Arabs are going to vote in this election,” he said. “They may emerge as the third or fourth strongest bloc and they may become kingmakers. It’s going to be so interesting to see how that coalition plays out in the maneuvering that occurs thereafter.

Is Durst's "confession" admissible in court?

“What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”

Those are the words Robert Durst – an eccentric millionaire acquitted of one murder and long suspected in two others – apparently spoke to himself in the bathroom following the conclusion of an interview he gave to documentary filmmaker Andrew Jarecki. It’s unclear whether Durst forgot he was still wearing a microphone.

The 71-year-old Durst’s bizarre rambling statement aired Sunday night on HBO as part of the finale of the six-part documentary “The Jinx” – which came just hours after he was arrested in New Orleans on a charge of murder in connection with the 2000 death of Susan Berman, his longtime friend and confidant, in Los Angeles.

Jarecki, the filmmaker of the HBO documentary, told CBS This Morning on Monday that he gave the bathroom audio tape to authorities many months ago after he and his colleagues discovered it during their editing process.

“We always leave the microphone on him. He knows that and he went to the bathroom while it was recording,” Jarecki said of Durst. “It wasn’t until months later that we had an editor listening to material that we sort of had just left behind… and we discovered that we had this shocking piece of audio.”

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Jarecki ever confronted Durst about the words recorded in the bathroom or what exactly Durst meant by them – perhaps that will be left up to a jury.
