Cruz Drops Out of Race

Oh well…Looks like Trump will get the nomination. Cruz is a class act and I’m sorry he had to drop out.

 

It’s really too bad. I like Cruz. He’s the only Republican left with guts.

My assessment of Trump, the GOP, and Cruz, HERE.

    Jack,
    Trump’s success as a juggernaut can be directly attributed to the anger of fed up Americans who are sick of the business as usual crap. As I said: He strikes a chord with Americans who are completely fed up with the bullshit and in-your-face corruption in D.C.
    I like Cruz for reasons I’ve already expressed, but the Trump supporters are so determined that Cruz didn’t stand much of a chance, regardless.
    I will support Trump because any GOP candidate is better than the Hildabeast or Sanders.
    Only time will tell if Trump is up for the job, and, if he is successful in delivering on his promises.

    Voting for a President is a lot like hiring someone…you may like them a lot, but if for any reason, they can’t get the job done then you really wouldn’t hire them. The whole campaign of Ted Cruz was a mini lesson in how well he could get things done and, as much as I admire and like Cruz for his positions and intelligence, he would not have been an effective President.

    Had he known better how to present himself and had he known how to deal with Trump and had he taken a lesson from Fiorina and developed the notion that we are challenged in the West by the ideology of a Theocratic and Fascist Islam, and we are challenged in our own country by the ideology of the Left which is anti-American, anti-success, racist against white American Europeans, had he developed a more effective immigration policy then perhaps he would have done better but I think the votes he got reflected all of this and that Cruz lost because of Cruz.

    None of this says that Trump will succeed. Only time will tell. And while Trump can be criticized for style and I was one of his early critics on that, he has what no other candidate had. And attitude that is paramount to taking on the Left on a cultural level which is where they must be challenged.

    I have friends who keep wanting to know what Trump’s policy positions are on every jot and tittle. I try to persuade them that this is irrelevant to what needs to be done but they seem to have their minds in a time warp stuck in the 1950’s.

    Just like Generals who fight the last war, voters can do the same thing. However, I think the win in Indiana was a big ‘Fuck You!’ to the press and the elites and their condescending horseshit attitudes of treating normal, everyday Americans like they are to be seen and not heard.

    I will work hard to see that Trump becomes President because to allow Clinton anywhere near the WH after Benghazi and after gun running and after doing secret deals with foreign governments and all of the rest of the corruption that hangs on her vile head like stink on shit, would be an act of cowardice and great immorality.
