Establishment versus outsiders. It’s not Ted Cruz against Donald Trump; it’s both parties against Trump. The Republican insiders would rather see Hillary get elected, before outsider Trump, or even Sanders gets elected.
Anyone see Cruz confronting Trump supporters yesterday on the news? I am not sure what he was trying to accomplish. It was kind of dumb to stand there and try to debate the issues with people who despise him more than a case of the runs. Now he wants to lash out at Trump over some idiotic statement that Trump said? Is that presidential?
From The Hill:
The Texas senator accused Trump of being both disingenuous and self-aggrandizing, saying Trump was a “narcissist” at a level “I don’t think this country has ever seen.”
“Donald Trump is such a narcissist that Barack Obama looks at him and says, ‘Dude, what’s your problem?’ ” Cruz said.
“Whatever lie he’s telling, in that minute he believes it, Cruz added. “But the man is utterly amoral. Morality does not exist for him.”
He criticized Trump for tweeting an unflattering picture of his wife, Heidi Cruz, saying it is just one piece of evidence that Trump is scared of “strong women.”
“It’s why he went after Heidi directly, attacked her and smeared her,” Cruz said. “Heidi isn’t pretty enough for him. … Donald is a bully. … Bullies don’t come from strength, they come from weakness. … There’s a reason Donald builds giant buildings and puts his name on them everywhere he goes.”
“Donald has a real problem with women,” Cruz continued.
He then noted that Trump defended boxer Mike Tyson, who was convicted in Indiana on rape charges, and told Trump’s supporters they should not believe their favored candidate.
“Donald is cynically exploiting that anger, and Donald is lying to his supporters,” he said. He went on to insist Trump would betray his them by not doing what he promises, including his pledge to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Cruz’s all-out assault suggested his campaign might be nearing its breaking point.
Desperate is the right word. He needs to realize that people are voting for Trump because they don’t want him. Why anyone voted for Cruz to begin with is beyond my comprehension. He’s accomplished nothing positive in his time as a senator, and he’s so utterly oblivious that he didn’t even notice Carly fall off the stage, and instead kept shaking people’s hands, because he’s a typical low-life politician.
Regardless of who you want for president, if the delegates do not vote the way the majority of people want OUR vote does not count. If the Republicans vote for Trump, that should be it. All people should be angry if there is a contested convention. It is possible that if they contest the convention voters will be just angry enough to vote Trump, our next president. I don’t know how it works, but if a contested convention costs taxpayers any money I will be angry.
Cruz is showing America that he doesn’t care who the voters want, he’s going to stay in it and try to steal the nomination using his politician friends and underhanded political tricks. It can’t be clearer that Cruz totally disregards our wishes to bolster his political career.
