Ted Cruz’s ground game is going to be tough to beat, wrote Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner.

So? Less than 30 delegates and 1% of the votes counted.
UntrustworthyTed has this (thing) about him every time he opens his mouth and for the longest time I couldn’t find the right adjective to encapsulate all my gut suspicions, apprehensions and downright disgust. Donald Trump’s stretched out “naaaasty” comes as close as it gets. It’s funny as hell for a Democrat like myself to watch the Republicans act like scorpions in a glass jar, but there’s something about Cruz that tells me the world’s in for a tribulation time of Cruz’ own creation … a special kind of its own. Yeah, that means it’s “not biblical” in the strictest sense. What the hell, Cruz’ understanding of politics as to how close it comes to matching Jesus’ teachings about ethics, and how how we’re supposed to treat the “least” of His leaves a lot to be desired. And sorry Ted and your Cruzite disciples, concern for the unborn isn’t wide enough for your biblical understanding to qualify as one who’d “do what Jesus would do” when it comes to His weakest, poorest, sickest, and most marginalized. Ted’s far more OT in ways that even the most by-the-letter old fashioned more conservative/orthodox Jews would find unreasonable in today’s world.
Crazed religious zealot.
But a “damned clever ‘crazed religious zealot,’ thus making him all the more dangerous. For a guy with such humble roots, which he loves to wax on about in his stump speeches, esp. when he’s talking about his crazy father, Ted Cruz’ choice of Harvard and his subsequent trashing of the college in his post grad years to make political points with his equally snobbish pals who commited one of politics greatest mortals of mortal sins, forgetting where the hell they came from . . . I can’t put a finger on just what it is about Cruz that makes this guy so appealing. If it makes you feel any better, I’ve spent many nights hanging around Harvard Sq. when I was younger and working as a Deputy Clerk in the Federal Dist. Court across the Charles in Boston … and too many of the Harvard students I’d have conversations with in Charlie’s Kitchen and other places seemed to be no brighter than any student from UMass, BC or Northeastern and Tufts. Hahvud’s gang were just more arrogant; just like that nasally sounding Canadian fraud serving as Texas’ junior Senator.
Uhhh Steve. I was referring to Beck not Cruz.
You can and certainly do make your own judgement re the intelligence of the candidates.
However the appeal with Cruz is more than his considerable intelligence and readiness to support his ideas.
It is his ability to refer governmental issues to the Constitution AND to point out when there is no such support from the Constitution..
Not everyone cares about this ability and his demonstrations of it in public. But those who do, are ardent supporter. Now that it appears that Carson is failing as a nominee, Cruz will pick up those supporters as well.
If you want contrast in this upcoming election Cruz vs Hill or Ol’ Comrade Bernie will provide it.
Thanks for pointing out my error Rich. What the hell, six of one, half dozen of the other kooks when it comes to either Cruz or Beck…they both belong in some nuthut.
