Skip to comments.Is Ted Cruz Wrong
Posted on 02/23/2016 7:53:13 AM PST by New Jersey Realist
It did not come at a good time, to put it mildly. The incident was another rotten news day for Cruz following a disappointing South Carolina showing. Just a day before the Nevada caucuses, the story will be one of the last things voters hear about before tomorrow. It is bound to come up in the debate Thursday night as well. If Cruz follows South Carolina with a disappointing result in Nevada, the SEC primary â already looking dicey â may turn out to be his undoing.

You think Jennifer Rubin is a conservative?
Did the really say all that? Gosh.
Haha. The Trump peeps now claim Rubin, the NYT, the Chicago Tribune, Kevin McCarthy, and every traditional opponent of the FR community as experts and conservatives to prove their point. All sanity has been lost.
Preview is our friend.
It would probably have been more convincing if you had not used up most of your 300-word allotment posting promotional material instead of more of the actual article. Not everyone has a subscription to the WP.
New Jersey Realist thinks Trump is a conservative. So it’s clear NJR is confused about what that term means.
Jebbifer Rubin must be in a complete funk now that Yebbie! has gone to do all those cool things we were keeping him from.
Preview is our friend.
Naw...... Copy, paste and hit post.. Times a wasting.
SRSLY?! Jen Rubin?! A perfect illustration of this upside down world and primary. Rubin is quoted by Trump supporters as 'excellent'. God help us.
Cue Hillary ..... I AM SICK AND TIRED ........
It’s not surprising that NJR doesn’t know what a conservative is; neither does Trump.
For a hoot, watch as he tries his best to define a conservative and fails. This would make a good SNL skit.
Rubin is corner stone of the GOPe.
Trump is not a conservative. Let’s have no illusions about that.
Trump may be a change agent, he may put Hillary in prison, but he is no conservative.
I do not think Jennifer Rubin is a conservative, and I think her remarks about immigration prove that. But regardless of whether she is right or wrong in her specific details, the Cruz campaign is weaker now that it was right after Iowa.
It doesnt take a conservative or a political genius to see that.
Where is Cruz going to win on March 1?
What is his path to the nomination?
Rubin is doing Trump’s work in the media. Donald cannot beat Cruz on ideas, policy or record so he is crafting an image to stick to Cruz to destroy him. In the end, the nation might be governed by a narcissistic tyrant and one less champion for liberty. Trump and the politics of personal destruction are on the march - sieg heil!
Cruz and his team did a pretty good job of creating the image all on their own.
By the way, you lose. Godwin’s law.
In the first rule of politics, you never make statements that your opponent or enemy will use against you. While Trump was blatantly saying how he will deport all of the illegals, build a wall on the Mexican/US border and halt immigration of muslims and residents from countries that pose a threat to us (positions that I happen to agree with), it is not always best to state those positions publicly. Should Hillary be the democrat nominee and Trump the republican nominee, she will blast the airwaves in California, Texas, Florida and New York (those areas with high immigrant (both legal and illegal) populations and portray Trump as a bigot, a racist, a xenophobe, a nationalist, etc. Cruz knows these topics are hot items and has been more diplomatic in how he discusses them. You will not make inroads with swing voters when you talk about rounding up people. Statements like this will be distorted by the left. It is all perception. And the dems are the master of misleading and deceptive campaigning.
Mr. Newton Gingrich had the same problem in 2012 after SC and GA: no other state would back him.
Is Trump pro-life today?
