Burned Bridges……


 

Cruz booed

Burned Bridges….

Not since Screamin’ Howie Dean has a presidential aspirant’s career ended more abruptly than that of Sen. Ted Cruz; even very strong supporters like Sara Palin and Laura Ingraham and virtually all Tea Party members, ended their association with the junior Texas senator last night as he addressed the GOP Convention.

He walked into a perfectly executed  ambush by doing exactly what the Trump campaign believed he would….  he refused to play along and “endorse” Trump for the greater good by denying Hillary Clinton the presidency.

In one heavy-handed and pointless paragraph he urged his supporters to “vote their conscience” come November by not supporting Trump’s election bid.

Game. Set. Match.Ted-Cruz-booed

With this act of utter stupidity Cruz makes it easy for Trump to mind meld with the GOP elites by isolating the conservative right wing of the Republican Party and assuring all “moderates” that the conservatives will have no seat at the Trump table.

Trump is essentially saying… “we don’t need the conservatives” despite the fact that we put him where he is today.

Furthermore, I believe that Cruz has burned all his personal bridges… including those in Texas; last night makes his re-election in 2018 doubtful and we will be lucky to have a GOP “moderate” like McConnell or Cornyn….. or worse, a democrat.

Our grim task lies ahead…. to maintain the unrelenting pressure on Congress and a new President to return America to the Real America we know and love.

And a Trump loss in November….?

I find that far too overwhelming to contemplate at this point

    Good to see you blogging again…

    I was on the Cruz bandwagon for quite awhile. I rethought that a few months back. Not sure what’s up with the guy or why he committed suicide, but the single thing that convinced me I could never support him again was breaking his pledge. One could argue all day about the motivation or whether Trump plays fair or Cruz plays fair, but all the Republicans forced Trump to sign such a pledge by agreeing to the pledge themselves. Regardless of Cruz having a thick or thin skin, in defense of his wife or a stranger, he broke his pledge. A man doesn’t do that and come away unscathed. Now, Texas will probably end up with a senator who will be far less a constitutionalist. Like you said, you might end up with a Demoncrat. That would really suck.

    At least I’ll do as he says and vote my conscience, which tells me never ever ever vote for the head of the Clinton Crime Family.

    I’ll hold my nose here in the bell weather state of Ohio, and vote for Trump….not because I believe or trust a damn The Donald sez….it’s a crapshoot what we will get if he is elected, we know what we will get with Killary…..and that would mean the end of the Republic as we know it{hardly recognizable now to what the Founding Fathers envisioned}…

    Do I blame Cruz, a true Conservative and Constitution Guy for not endorsing Trump? Not a chance…sometimes you have to stand for what you believe rather that jump on the bandwagon that is now being controlled by the RINOs…and falling on the sword for someone who called you “Lying Ted” for six months….I’d kick his ass instead.

    We will see what happens in November, that is if King Obammy even let’s there be a Presidential election….the Dictaker wanna be might just declare Martial Law…then, let the Revolution Begin…
