Ben Stein: There's 'Something Wrong' With Ted Cruz

By    |   Wednesday, 06 Apr 2016 04:05 PM

Ben Stein says Ted Cruz could be a very good president — but the Texas senator's ability to alienate his fellow lawmakers on Capitol Hill is a major liability for somebody seeking the White House.

"I like Mr. Cruz very, very much," Stein, a noted economist, actor and speechwriter to President Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"[But] there's something wrong with him in terms of his inability to get along with other people in the U.S. Senate. I don't think there's ever been a U.S. senator quite as much disliked as Senator Cruz is."

Still, Stein — who plans on voting for Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner he believes will win enough delegates to clinch the GOP nomination — says Cruz is solid on many policies.

"He's got his head screwed on right about a lot of the issues. He's got his head screwed on right on abortion, [on] Israel," he said.

Stein, a bestselling author who writes Newsmax Magazine's Dreemz column, has appeared in such movies as "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Honeymoon in Vegas" and "Planes, Trains & Automobiles."
