[President Obama] would have made a perfect president of Harvard Law School. …There were fewer declared Republicans in the faculty when we were there than Communists! There was one Republican. But there were twelve who would say they were Marxists who believed in the Communists overthrowing the United States government.
Senator Ted Cruz • From a speech he gave a couple years ago, before the start of his Senate career, at a conference sponsored by Americans For Prosperity, which elicited this rather sensational question from the New Yorker’s Jane Meyer: “Is Senator Ted Cruz our new McCarthy?” Cruz’s eye-popping claim, that a dozen faculty members at Harvard Law from 1992-1995 (when Cruz attended) supported a Communist overthrow of the U.S. government, is disputed by Charles Fried, a professor at the school (and former Reagan administration Solicitor General) who himself taught Cruz: “…there were a certain number (twelve seems to me too high) who were quite radical, but I doubt if any had allegiance or sympathy with anything called ‘the Communists,’ who at that time (unlike the thirties and forties) were in quite bad odor among radical intellectuals. …[He was] very bright, very hard-working and very conservative, in a well-mannered, agreeable way. This surprises me. It suggests he’s changed.” source
