Not since Hiroshima and Nagasaki as so much been destroyed in the blink of an eye. With the exception of his most ardent supporters, the most establishment of establishment Republicans and coming down hard on Ted Cruz.
As noted by the Independent Journal Review, Cruz was suppose to meet with billionaire and big-time GOP donor Sheldon Adleson. But as reported by IJR’s Joe Perticone, Cruz was given the bum’s rush at Adleson’s luxury box suite at the Quicken Loans arena.
According to Perticone, Cruz was flatly refused permission to even enter the suite. Not just refused entry, the reporter claims that an unnamed former US Senator had some rather unkind things to say of the Texas legislator: “Cruz was not welcome in the suite ‘because he’s a piece of sh*t,’ the Senator said.”
Not alone, NBC News caught Long Island Representative Peter King referring to Cruz as “a fraud” as well as “a liar.” Congressman King went on to say that Cruz “cannot be trusted.”
In spite of promising before the nation that they would uphold their personal pledge to support Donald Trump if he should win the GOP nomination, both Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich have let their true colors not only be shown, but fly high.
As everyone already knows, #NoShowKasich has made a point to steer clear of the RNC, pledge be damned. Upstaging him was the junior senator from the Lone Star State. #PoutingTed took to the stage at Cleveland where he effectively torpedoed any future career in politics.
Speaking as just the average citizen, I believe it was a bad day for this Republic to see a US Senator booed off the stage. The only thing worse was to see that same US Senator’s smirking smile as he slithered off that same stage.
As noted by RealClearPolitics.com, the exchange between Fox News moderator Bret Baier and the GOP’s final four: (Emphasis mine)
BAIER: Senator Cruz, yes or no, you will support Donald Trump is he’s the nominee?
CRUZ: Yes, because I gave my word that I would. And what I have endeavored to do every day in the Senate is do what I said I would do. You know, just on Tuesday, we saw an overwhelming victory in the state of Texas where I won Texas by 17 percent.
And I will say it was a powerful affirmation that the people who know me best, the people who I campaigned, who made promises that if you elect me, I’ll lead the fight against Obamacare, I’ll lead the fight against amnesty, I’ll lead the fight against our debt, and I will fight for the Bill of Rights and your rights every day, that the people of Texas said you have kept your word, and that’s what I’ll do as president.
Not ending there, Baier continued on with the Buckeye Chief Executive:
BAIER: Governor Kasich, yes or no, would you support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee?
KASICH: Yeah. But — and I kind of think that, before it’s all said and done, I’ll be the nominee. But let me also say… But let me also say, remember…
BAIER: But your answer is yes?
KASICH: But I’m the little engine that can. And, yeah, look, when you’re in the arena, and we’re in the arena. And the people out here watching — we’re in the arena, we’re traveling, we’re working, we spend time away from our family, when you’re in the arena, you enter a special circle. And you want to respect the people that you’re in the arena with. So if he ends up as the nominee — sometimes, he makes it a little bit hard — but, you know, I will support whoever is the Republican nominee for president.
As the main competition to GOP front runner Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz is always on the prowl for whatever political edge he may use to swing the Republican electorate his way. As reported by Michael Warren of the usually right-leaning The Weekly Standard news portal on Apr. 25, 2016, Team Cruz is vetting a well known former candidate as a possible running mate for the Canadian-born Cubano. But as it turns out, the would-be bottom of the ticket does come with a certain amount of baggage the party base may not exactly warm to.

Ted Cruz may portray himself as a DC outsider, but his latest move may show he’s quite the quick learner. As reported by the staff of the Associated Press via CBS News, and also by Jonathan Easley of the everything political The Hill news portal, both on Mar. 31, 2016, the Lone Star senator and presidential contender is jockeying to get opponent Gov. John Kasich bumped off the Montana Republican Primary ballot. Continue reading Cruz moves to toss Kasich off the Montana ballot→
