Cruz is a Greasy Character

A Ted Cruz quote from a Politico article:

“This isn’t just a team sport, we don’t just put on red jerseys, blue jerseys, and yay! This is about principles, ideas, standing for what we believe in,” he said. “I have to say it was somewhat dismaying that apparently some of Donald’s biggest partisans right down front, when they heard ‘you should vote for someone you can trust to defend freedom … immediately began booing. I gotta say, that’s a little bit troubling.”

Cruz knows why they began booing: because Cruz’s “freedom” rhetoric was just a cover for breaking his pledge. He’s acting like it’s, you know, disturbing that people could boo him when he’s talking about freedom. But he knows full well that they were booing him, not freedom.

He’s very greasy indeed.

Cruz at Convetion: “Vote Your Conscience,” Doesn’t Endorse Trump

Well, this is interesting.

Ted Cruz, during his speech, didn’t endorse Trump and actually told viewers to “vote their conscience” in November.

During the primary, vote your conscience was his signal for “Don’t vote for that immoral New Yorker. Vote for me, the man that shares your values.”

He used the line over and over during the primary, and that was its meaning.

For him to say that at the convention that has nominated Trump by a 500 delegate margin is…strange? I can’t think of anyone with as much unbounded ambition as to not endorse the candidate. Even Reagan endorsed Gerald Ford, when Ford beat him by less than a hundred delegates for the nomination.

The crowd hated Cruz’s statement. They started booing him and chanting “endorse Trump.” They were right.

Cruz has fed a nice little item to the media to attack Trump with. They can take the “evangelical” Cruz’s non-endorsement and wave it around to “show” that Trump hasn’t united the party. Will it make much difference? I don’t know. But handing the opposition such a nice little soundbite is a lousy thing to do. It reflects on Cruz very badly.

For a long time I’ve considered Cruz to be abnormally ambitious. Now I think he may be ambitious to the point of political self-destruction. He can never seem to take a bow and let another run the show. Even during his speech, it had the bizarre feeling of being a campaign rally for him. He acted like everyone at the convention was there to hear him speak.

Strange man.

Anti-Trump Effort at Convention Fails

From the AP(scroll down to 8:10 PM):

A leader of conservatives making a last-ditch attempt to block Donald Trump’s nomination says she’s dropping her effort to force the Republican National Convention to vote on her plan to let delegates back any presidential candidate they want.

The convention rules committee has already rejected Colorado delegate Kendal Unruh’s proposal to “unbind” delegates from the candidates they were committed to by state primaries and caucuses.

Unruh had been saying that despite that defeat, she’d get enough support to force a full convention vote next week on her plan to let delegates vote their conscience.

So she wants them free to vote their conscience, eh?

What about the “consciences” that voted for Trump overwhelmingly in the primaries?

It aggravates me whenever I see these hollow nincompoops start preaching about “conscience” whenever they want to abuse the convention rules to get what they want. They could at least be honest about their cynical ploys. To hide them behind morality is disgusting.

It’s amazing the hollow, substanceless people politics attracts. It’s even more surprising, in a way, that we keep sending them back into power, as delegates and candidates. I imagine it’s more a matter of honest ignorance on the voter’s part than anything else.

A 2016 Election Poem

I’m sick of Obama, that terrible man,
Who’s hurt America all that he can.
But do not fret, for soon we will dump,
That terrible man, and replace him with Trump!

But this may not happen, if some on the right,
Keep pushing for Hillary, with all of their might.
They would prefer Clinton, though she they dread,
Rather than have Donald Trump as their head!

This is because, a globalist she,
Is less objectionable than Donald T;
For money is what makes their world go ’round,
And it may yet throw Populism to the ground.

This is the battle, this is the score,
The globalists with the People have started a war;
To control the government that has made them rich,
They’ll take no prisoners: this is politics.

RAT: Republicans Against Trump

There’s a name circling the internet for Republicans that are trying to stab Trump in the back: Republicans Against Trump, helpfully shortened to RAT.

I can see a great future for the term RAT. Just think of calling anti-Trump people RATs!

I think this is going to be fun.
