Skip to comments.Ted Cruz – The Reality of The Situation…

Polarizing is a descriptive term used by a pontificating media to disparage various elements they find antithetical to their own worldview. Generally, when the term is used it is wrongly assigned. However, in the case of Ted Cruz its unfortunately accurate.
When Jason Johnson sits down to discuss his pathway to the nomination with George Will, it says more about Jason Johnson than it does about those who read Wills opinion of the aforementioned pathway. What it essentially says is theres a need to affirm something that isnt factually supported by any measure of quantifiable empirical evidence.
Ted Cruz Value Voters Summit
However, when you look at the recent CBS survey result (discussed here) what youll identify is half of the Ted Cruz supporters themselves state they dont think he is electable. Hence, you find the motive for Cruz Campaign Strategist Mr. Jason Johnson to give the outline; fraught with intellectual dishonesty though it may be.
Yes, 10% of the Republican Primary Voters hold most-favorable-status opinion of Ted Cruz, yet the number evaporates to 5% when asked can he win? Ergo the Cruz dilemma.
The expressed Cruz pathway carries numerous contingencies requiring an electorate to travel with the Cruz team on faith alone. And yes, thats an intended double entendre, because faith is the underlying element of the entire campaign. (Insert first alarm bell here).
All their words, not mine...
it is such a swirling cesspool of opinions, partial truths and misinformation from the Establihment...

It is psychotic trying to nail all of them down for what they actually said, promised, double dealt with...whatever
We have all fallen short of the Glory of God, but these folks embrace sin to the core of their soul, through and through
It's a little early to be writing the obituary. He's a formidable guy, just brilliant. He has a plan, he's working the plan and we'll see how it turns out.
They are keeping any semblance of order away from people giving the impression we are lost and they are ok...
As long as
Cruz does well in debates
Cruz holds McConnell and others to their promises to voters.
Cruz proposes positive solutions not just negatives
Cruz continues to poll about 10%
Cruz continues to raise more money than he spends
He will make gains in public opinion, and meanwhile
Many of the low polling candidates will run out of funds and be forced out of the race.
I figure Cruz will benefit by some of these candidates dropping out
These are people that divide support from groups that are liking Cruz. Tea Party, Evangelicals, Conservatives.
I think is good to be in the top 5 and it doesn’t hurt that Jeb and Rubio will have to duke it out, or that Carly goes after Trump.
This is not a conservative site.
Just calling it The conservative Treehouse won’t fill the bill.
These clowns are always ragging against conservatives and conservative positions.
I am encouraged by the fact that they are concern trolling Cruz. It means that they see him as a real threat to their wishy-washy politics. (He is indeed!)
Enough of these Bub Dull supporters.
"Theres a reason why the recent CBS survey approached their polling questions with head-to-head match-ups yet excluded Ted Cruz specifically. It appears to be the same reason why the GOPe media constructs within Park Row allow the narrative of Cruz, as told by Johnson, to remain unblemished. By not contrasting them, they retain the air of possibility. Theres a motive inside that retention having nothing to do with Cruz per se".
So CBS, by not givings a head to head to poll against Hillary is doing their bit to sustain his candidacy.
Really. Our old friend CBS helping the most conservative candidate in the race. Somehow I don't think so. In fact the article is just a hit piece on Cruz. He was 3rd in the most recent poll. That same CBS poll. I think CBS had quite another reason for not giving us the Cruz vs. Clinton results.
Good to know, I do not tend to frequent blogger sites...
I will change my search parameters to see where the core post comes from
Thanks for the heads up, wolves in Sheep’s clothing!
>> “He has a plan” <<
And it scares the poop out of these panty-waistes.
Full article states: “What it essentially says is theres a need to affirm something that isnt factually supported by any measure of quantifiable empirical evidence.” Then, eight paragraphs later, goes on to attempt reinforcement of this premise with unsupported— and unsupportable— assumptions:
“It is highly doubtful that Diamond and Silk, would be Stumping for Cruz, or anything similar. Its actually beyond doubtful, its a ridiculous proposition. Nor would there be thousands of Democrats changing their party affiliation to Republican to support Cruz in the primary elections.”
Entire “article” is based upon the premise that a CBS poll shows the true nature of the will of Republican primary voters. Yet the poll was not conducted in such a way as to accurately portray the stances of those same voters. The most simplistic inquiry into the methodology provides this glaring error:
“This poll was conducted by telephone October 4-8, 2015 among a random sample of 1,251 adults nationwide, including 1,038 registered voters. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by SSRS of Media, PA. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The poll employed a random digit dial methodology. For the landline sample, a respondent was randomly selected from all adults in the household. For the cell sample, interviews were conducted with the person who answered the phone. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish using live interviewers”
Please note the small polling size for a national poll, the lack of targeted demographics ( “registered voters” do not = likely voters) and the fact that party affiliation of respondents was not listed.
If “sundance” wishes to be taken seriously, especially when taking on Mr. Johnson and attacking his credibility on election issues, I will demand for more substance to a rebuttal than “Ted Cruz once handed out teddy bears with Glenn Beck”.
This is the kind of response that helps others to see for themselves the bigger picture, not sound bytes...
Good catch scan across a media search on Ted and watch the posies blossom...
They want us seen as Chickens lost and just cackling...
I love it when they underestimate US...
Its ok, it is always good to know what your enemies are thinking, and what their strategy will be.
The site has a serious beef with Cruz, has for months. It grows wearying.
Small people speak authoritatively and solemnly on these egregious actions, as if how dare they...
Hey Progressive folks, turn around, see that Huge friggin wave of change bearing down on ya???
You can’t swim that fast...
Trump and Carson are the Round-Up that can deal with the weeds and make the farmland a place where the seed stock will grow.
Dont get me wrong, if Cruz ends up being the nominee this go around he has my vote, but I think that a Trump victory is needed to set the stage for a Cruz win 4 or 8 years later.
I like Cruz. He’s one of my top three to vote for. However, what worries me is that no one is talking about the very large Maple leaf in the room that needs to be addressed in regards to his eligibility. I worry that the Dims are waiting to have him become the candidate before they address, no make that attack it.
We have three months and seventeen days until Iowa starts the process. A lot will change during
this time but after Jan. 1, look for all stops to be pulled out by the remaining candidates.
During the month of February there are four events and then on March 1 there are eleven primary
elections and two caucuses. During the rest of March there are ten more primary elections and
three more caucuses. March will be an interesting month for sure.
