The Campaign Gets Stranger And Stranger

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's campaign says Ted Cruz's campaign is now being run by the GOP establishment and "Bush people."
“The Bush people are now running Sen. Cruz’s campaign — Neil Bush, who’s spent millions of dollars invested with Common Core, and all of these other special interest groups like Goldman Sachs, like hedge fund managers,” Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told Fox News on Wednesday.
“This is going to be a very serious problem if Sen. Cruz continues to go down this path and then neither Trump or Cruz becomes the nominee.”
Trump's campaign accused Cruz, his chief rival for the nomination, of being "worse than a puppet" in a statement released after Trump's loss in the Wisconsin primary Tuesday night.
"He is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump,” the Trump campaign said.
Pierson said Wednesday it's clear that many people in the GOP establishment don't plan to support Cruz during the convention process.
Cruz can't win "on his own merits," she said.
“When you have the establishment backing you so reluctantly to the point to where you have people endorsing you that said that you would get murdered on the Senate floor and nobody would care and the difference between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is being stabbed or shot, their loyalty is not with Sen. Cruz,” she said.
Pierson was referring to comments made by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a former presidential candidate who backed Cruz last month as the best candidate to take on Trump after a series of negative comments about the Texas senator.


  1. While the establishment seems befuddled by the choices Americans are making, they shouldn't blame the voters, as they’re starting to do. They need to look in the mirror and realize that this revolt by the American people is the logical result of a pampered political class that ignores festering national problems while putting its own interests ahead of the nation’s.

  2. I do put some blame on the voters. I get what he's saying and I agree, but people have always said this about Washington. I think that way too many people are unwilling to not only vote for someone outside of their chosen party, I also think that way too many are unwilling to let go of their hyper partisan news sources, do their own research, and admit it when there research tells them they are being fed a line of bullshit from their candidate or party. Trump is a clown. Cruz has done nothing of substance in his senate career (yeah, I get it, the same was said of Obama) but Kasich has. I don't like everything about the dude, but I believe he could do the job without being a partisan hack and lacky of the way right. I would seriously consider voting for him over Hillary.
