Poor Crooked Canadian Cruz. He gave up the fight last night, announcing his capitulation to Donald Trump and the end of his own campaign for president.
Waxing disingenuous and summoning his inner LBJ, the Canadian somberly reported, “From the beginning I’ve said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. Tonight, I’m sorry to say, it appears that path has been foreclosed. Together, we left it all on the field in Indiana. We gave it everything we’ve got, but the voters chose another path. And so, with a heavy heart…. we are suspending our campaign.”
I apologize if I am offending anyone when I say that Crooked Canadian Cruz is the most disingenuous phony I have seen come down the political pike since Barack Hussein. His habitual prevarication, his parroting of Donald Trump’s platform as if it were his own, and his invoking the name of Jesus Christ at every opportunity are more than unsettling to me.
I used to actually like the guy, mostly because he advocates, or pretends to, the restoration of our Constitution, which has turned the American experiment into the most free, prosperous, and powerful nation in the history of the world, and has been the model for the constitution of every free nation since.
However, having seen the Canadian up close and personal these last several months, I have been shocked by his maliciousness, his disingenuous pandering, his faux evangelism, and most of all his dirty tricks, which he believed to be fair and ethical, and about which he laughed and boasted openly.
We don’t need a politician and we don’t need a preacher. The Canadian is clearly the former, and pretends to be the latter. We need a leader and a patriot! We need a CEO and a commander with experience and drive. Canadian Cruz is none of those. Donald Trump is ALL of those. The fact that The Donald is a proven builder of prosperity is just a bonus.
Consider this. Just several short months ago Ted Cruz had it made. At a time when most of the other fifteen candidates were slamming and disparaging Donald Trump, Cruz not only refused to participate in the gauntlet but openly praised Trump. He even flew to New York to meet with The Donald and congratulated him on becoming the early front runner in the race, for which Trump was appreciative and much impressed. A short time later Trump announced that his first early choice for VP was Ted Cruz.
All the Canadian had to do was get behind Donald Trump and support him and the veep slot would have been his. If he had played his cards right, he would have been the presumptive choice for Trump’s running mate, and if elected would have served a likely eight years as vice-president, becoming the heir apparent to the White House in 2024, when the Canadian will be a still young 53 years old.
HE BLEW IT! He couldn’t wait until 2024. He had to have it all, and he had to have it all right now!
Patience is a virtue, Mr. Cruz. Now go back to the Senate and serve the people of Texas, your duties and responsibilities to whom you have neglected for the past four years.
