For a supposedly a smart guy, Ted Cruz can do some really dumb things and last night we saw it. Donald Trump isn’t a person who lets by-gones be by-gones.
For a supposedly man of high personal morals, Ted Cruz can do some really ill-mannered things and last night we saw it. Whether the Convention is “Donald Trump’s House” or the “Party’s House,” the Convention wasn’t “Ted Cruz’s House.” He lost the primary in decisive fashion and was only given the right to speak by invitation. I don’t recall ever getting my face slapped by my mom but if I went to another’s house and did what he did, I am pretty sure I’d have gotten the proverbial slap across the face.
The Washington Times is reporting three days ago Donald Trump was told direct by Ted Cruz that he wasn’t going give an endorsement. My gut is Cruz was expecting Trump would respond by rescinding Cruz’ speaking slot and Cruz would be made a martyr upon which Cruz would launch his 2020 Presidential Race.
Trump instead didn’t respond as expected- Gave Ted his moment in the spotlight.
And, in the end, Trump came across as the bigger man and Ted Cruz slithered off the stage.
Sidenote: Cruz said this morning the reason he didn’t endorse admitting it is personal, referring to Trump’s attack on Cruz’ wife and father during the primary. Ted’s decision to make a national convention the battlefield for a personal matter. Ted can expect the same from those who have grudges against him. Death by a thousand nicks is a painful death.
