Cruz Campaign Fires Communications Director Rick Tyler

Cruz Campaign Fires Communications Director Rick Tyler

Minimize damages before they become septic

Senator Cruz has requested the resignation of Rick Tyler, the campaign’s Communication’s Director.

Politico reports:

Ted Cruz’s campaign on Monday apologized to Marco Rubio for publicizing a story misstating the Florida senator’s remarks to a Cruz staffer in South Carolina.

Rubio ran into Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, and a staffer in South Carolina on Saturday at a Hampton Inn. According to the Daily Pennsylvanian, which posted the video, the blog also had staffers present during the encounter.

The website reported that Rubio suggested that the Bible did “[n]ot have many answers in it.”

Cruz communications director Rick Tyler posted the story on Facebook but later deleted it and apologized after a Cruz staffer said Rubio didn’t make any such comment.

“I want to apologize to Senator Marco Rubio for posting an inaccurate story about him here earlier today,” Tyler said. “The story showed a video of the Senator walking past a Ted Cruz staffer seated in the lobby of a hotel reading his Bible. The story misquoted a remark the Senator made to the staffer. I assumed wrongly that the story was correct. According to the Cruz staffer, the Senator made a friendly and appropriate remark.”

Tyler’s entire apology is here:

Even Cruz-loyalist Erick Erickson was less than thrilled. He tweeted:

Legal Insurrection Contributor, Sarah Rumpf, covered the brouhaha at Independent Journal Review in great detail if you’re looking for a comprehensive read on BibleGate.

Canning Tyler gives the Cruz campaign an opportunity to “start fresh” amid complaints of an increasingly dishonest campaign.

As I’ve said before, politics is a blood sport. Fight dirty? Fine. But it’s wise to ensure the mud you’re slinging sticks. If you have to apologize, you’ve lost.

It’s amazing to me that as far as we’ve gotten in this election/primary season and to date, Ted Cruz’s campaign is the only dishonest campaign out there.

    Radegunda in reply to American Human. | February 22, 2016 at 4:33 pm

    When Trump lied about his past position on the Iraq War and slandered G.W. Bush by ignoring what he himself wrote, the fandom praised Trump’s winning strategy.

    Trump can change his positions from day to day, and the fandom insists that he’s 100% rock-solid reliable.

    Trump fans aren’t the least bit concerned about the scam that was Trump University, or Trump’s lies about who was hurt by his multiple bankruptcies.

    Trump has the advantage of a fan base that holds him to no standards whatsoever.

      “Trump has the advantage of a fan base that holds him to no standards whatsoever.”

      How true. The Trumpaloos remind me of Obamabots in that regard.

    Ragspierre in reply to American Human. | February 22, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    You should have remembered a “sarc” tag.

Let us hope that as president, Cruz will remain willing to clean house as required.

Let us hope the ethics challenged Cruz never becomes president. The reason Ben Carson never accepted Cruz’s apology is because Cruz never fired anybody over the Cruz campaign’s unethical conduct.

The ONLY reason Cruz is doing anything about this incident is all his dirty tricks and push poll lies in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina are beginning to hurt his campaign.

You can’t run as “almost as good as Reagan and a little better than Jesus” for the evangelical vote and turn out to be a serial liar who doesn’t TITHE to any church.

This firing will contrary to what is written above NOT give Cruz a free pass to start fresh.

    Radegunda in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    The guy who’s happy to overlook the “Trump University” scam, and Trump’s dealings with organized crime, and his boasts about coming out ahead after four casino bankruptcies that left a lot of little people poorer — purports to be concerned about character and honesty!

    Gary probably accepts Trump’s claim that he has never done anything that needs repentance or forgiveness, because anything that Trump does is excusable, even praiseworthy, simply by virtue of being done by Trump the Great.

    Oh, and Trump is a MUCH better family man than all those losers.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 5:00 pm

    The reason Cruz never fired anyone was because there was no “unethical conduct” as elaborated by Nolte at TrumpBart, you lying SOS.

    all his dirty tricks and push poll lies in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina

    Those things didn’t actually happen. This is a thing that actually happened, and he reacted decisively and well.

    Milwaukee in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    Hello Gary: Dr. Carson did suspend his campaign. He went back to Florida to get some clean clothes and then to D.C. for the National Prayer Breakfast. When you stop campaigning. Was it temporary? Yes. Did the Rubio team do the same thing? Yes. But Rubio is making out like he only Cruz did it.

    Did Rubio say one thing to the English audience and another the Spanish audience? Yes. There is an integrity problem.

    Does Trump even know that while he “objects” to Obamacare he says he is going to create a single payer system, which would be even worse? Or are those more thoughts than his head can hold at one time? My guess is that the ex-wives are well paid, which is why they are “happy”. He has bragged about all the pussy he gets. He is amoral.
    I would recommend Dictionary.com if you are not sure what “amoral” means.

      It is good to remind people that Rubio’s campaign was the first to tweet out Carson leaving campaign, but for some odd reason he pays no price.

      And it is also good to remind people that Rubio did say one thing to a Spanish audience and another to an English audience then pays no price for his deception.

      I know for a fact that Rubio lied to my face so if he is elected I already know what kind of president he will make; I have observed that there is something about handsome men that make some women drool with stupidity.

      When Rubio talks about how he will bring the party together his response to Cruz’s firing of a staff member is rather smarmy. Why Rubio is incapable of graciousness is reflective of his haughty character.

      Again Rubio lied to my face so him coming across as being ‘above it all’ is ineffective.

        conservative tarheel in reply to syn. | February 22, 2016 at 7:09 pm

        Marco “gang of eight” Rubio
        will not have to pay a price.
        is the the face of the GOPe
        but because Cruz is conservative,
        all guns are trained on him.
        must destroy the conservative
        candidate.

        spartan in reply to syn. | February 23, 2016 at 8:41 am

        I think Rubio is in bed with Trump. They are both using the same tactics against Cruz. Cruz wonders how he can be lying when he is only repeating what Rubio and Trump say. It is time for Cruz and his supporting SuperPACs to hit back and hit back hard. It is 1 week until Super Tuesday.

      gulfbreeze in reply to Milwaukee. | February 22, 2016 at 10:09 pm

      “Dr. Carson did suspend his campaign. He went back to Florida to get some clean clothes and then to D.C. for the National Prayer Breakfast. When you stop campaigning. Was it temporary? Yes.”

      I haven’t supported any candidate yet, but this statement is absolutely absurd. A campaign is suspended when the candidate says it’s suspended. No one else gets to make that call.

      Cruz apologized to Carson for spreading the false story of the campaign suspension. Even Cruz has not said anything so ridiculous as what is quoted above. Furthermore, here’s part of the text of one of the voicemails the Cruz campaign left the night of the caucus includes the following:

      “…so it is very important that you tell any Ben Carson voters that for tonight, uh, that they not waste a vote on Ben Carson, and vote for Ted Cruz.”

      So even the Cruz campaign didn’t believe the news reported a “temporary suspension”. Cruz doesn’t need anyone’s help by making up nonsense.

    damocles in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    Trump could be caught and challenged by the media on every flip-flop (of which there are many, beginning with funding/defunding Planned Parenthood, his support/not support of the Iraq war, George Bush knew there were no WMD before he went into Iraq and deliberately sent our troops in anyway) .There are many more. He threw out the word liar at Cruz and the media and Fox in particular ran with the meme to help their establishment candidate Rubio. I could continue to document their lies, but the media wants ratings and has no intention of vetting Trump.

    damocles in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    Who do you tithe to Gary? Yeah. I thought not.
    Hypocrite.

    You can’t run as “almost as good as Reagan and a little better than Jesus” for the evangelical vote and turn out to be a serial liar who doesn’t TITHE to any church.”

    Has Trumphs given the money to the veterans as he said he would or are they still waiting on the serial self-aggrandizer to cough it up from his Hillary-like foundation?

      At Trump’s fundraiser (just as most fundraisers do), individuals/corporations make pledges, not donations. That’s because large donors may be pledging not just personally, but rather from their businesses or charitable foundation, need to liquidate asset holdings to convert them to cash, or confer those donations at optimal liquidity times for their person or business (cash holdings can vary widely at any given time for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is tax payments). Or there may be a number of other pledges those donors have already made that must be honored before Trump’s.

      Donations are disbursed upon the receipt of donations, which can follow much later. See here:

      http://www.weeklystandard.com/some-vet-groups-still-waiting-for-trump-foundation-checks/article/2001154

      “Childress says the Fisher House Foundation has yet to receive a donation, though she was quick to add that it’s not uncommon for pledged donations to take weeks or months to actually be disbursed.”

        In the mean time Trumph minions are gathering personal information on donors.

        Donations to veterans and wounded warriors should never go through a “foundation”. They should go directly to those organizations providing the service.

        Trumph, like big government, wants to be the middle man and do the accounting himself.

    Tarot poll reader Britt is also a palm reader. He reads his sweaty palms and then promotes junk bond Trumph.

    Mercyneal in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    Breitbart is calling you.

As Angelo Dundee said to Sugar Ray Leonard in his first fight against Roberto Duran – Cruz – “Your blowin it son”.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    And NOBODY knows more about “blowing it” than our resident T-rump sucker, right butt boi?

    Do you own one of Trump’s suits made in Mexico or one he makes in China?

    How does it feel knowing that Trump thinks so little of you that he would rather have his products manufactured in Mexico and China?

      damocles in reply to syn. | February 22, 2016 at 6:32 pm

      I wonder if Trump will give his Chinese clothing manufacturer a tax break when he taxes the other US companies an extra 35% for making their products outside the US? Special benefits for his buddies.
      Just like Obama. Trump gets to decide who the winners and losers will be.

        Given Jon Huntsman,Jr-former Ambassador to China appointed by Obama and all around Washington DC crony- is happy to get behind Donald Trump then it is fair to say that you will not have far to wonder.

        That aside; I am hoping all the lawyers and law professors who believe in preserving what is left of our Constitutional Republic remember Scalia’s death and the implications this has on the Supreme Court.

        5/4. The next Supreme Court Justice will be the difference between winning or losing the 1st and 2nd amendments. And if the nominee goes the wrong direction then all this stuff about illegal immigration, walls, economy, radical Islam or stupid campaign spokesmen will be pointless.

Cruz’s team is just really dirty.

Look at their bio’s. Most of the high level staffers on Cruz’s team are former CIA with background in Psyops, Coprop, other information warfare, and rigging foreign elections.

Usually you would expect to find people with a marketing background or establishment lifers who cycle from job to job. To say that the Background of Cruz’ team is unusual is an understatement.

They are familiar with stuff we probably have never seen before in American elections.

Hence the “checks” (that aren’t really checks) sent to elderly voters, the targeted disinformation robocalls, and the misinterpretations of reported information.

Trump could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his fans wouldn’t waver a millimeter.

Trump’s communications director is a fruit-loop who’s made some nasty pronouncements.

But the rules are different for Trump. His fans hold him to no standards whatsoever.

I’m glad Cruz has dumped Tyler now, but that’s going to be a tough one to get over.

And yes, Trump and his supporters are dishonest and grubby too. But that’s why I don’t like them. Ted Cruz needs to be better than that.

    Ragspierre in reply to Amy in FL. | February 22, 2016 at 4:57 pm

    He just showed that. This is how you deal with people who disappoint you. And people often will.

    For T-rump to do the same, he’d have to march to a mirror and shout “You’re FIRED”.

    Heh…!!!

      Yes, I’m glad Cruz got rid of him tout de suite — at least he showed good, decisive management skills in doing that. Hopefully that’ll also serve as a warning to any other staffers to be a little more careful.

Sen @marcorubio’s spox responds to @tedcruz calling for Rick Tyler’s resignation:

“Rick is a really good spokesman who had the unenviable task of working for a candidate willing to do or say anything to get elected,” the Rubio campaign told Patrick Svitek of Texas Monthly.

“There is a culture in the Cruz campaign, from top to bottom, that no lie is too big and no trick too dirty. Rick did the right thing by apologizing to Marco. It’s high time for Ted Cruz to do the right thing and stop the lies.”

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    “Rick is a really good spokesman who had the unenviable task of working for a candidate willing to do or say anything to get elected.”

    So you republish to APPARENT, OBVIOUS lies.

    Just another day in the life of Gaghdad Bob Britt.

    Like your little yellow god, who lies constantly.

    Milwaukee in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 5:45 pm

    Rubio shows he is truly classless. Rubio lies about Cruz and then lies about telling lies.

    Was Rick Tyler under orders to post the video in the first place? No, he did it of his own initiative. Cruz investigated and fired him. Boom. Tyler did the lying, not Cruz.

    Brush up on your Spanish so you can tell when Rubio tells you one thing in English and another in Spanish.

    damocles in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 6:37 pm

    This Rubio campaign?
    Rubio and Trump lied and called Cruz a liar during the debate. Cruz was telling the truth about their records. The media refuse to fact check Rubio on amnesty. Cruz and Rubio do not have the same position on amnesty. They never have had the same position.
    The Rubio campaign falsely accused the Cruz campaign of setting up a facebook page saying Trey Gowdy changed his support to Cruz. The Cruz campaign never did this. Gowdy and the Rubio campaign admitted they had no evidence whatsoever that the Cruz campaign did it. Rubio continued to blame the Cruz campaign and used it to his advantage to ruin Cruz in SC.

    Evan3457 in reply to Gary Britt. | February 23, 2016 at 2:03 am

    Except that Rick Tyler did this one all by himself. Cruz had no hand in it. None. There is no evidence of it.

    Don’t even try.

An American Research Group poll fresh out of Michigan shows Donald Trump beating his closest rival by a 2-to-1 margin. Currently, the billionaire business earns 35% support. John Kasich is in second place with 17% support. Just behind the Ohio governor is Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
79%
, who slides into third in a tie with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
97%
at 12%. Ben Carson is in 4th place with 9% support.

    You’re cutting and pasting direct from Trumpbart again. Why do you keep doing that? At least fix the formatting – it’s kind of a “tell.”

    Your problem is that 65% of America HATES Trump.

    You actually think that a candidate who has the highest negatives of all the candidates running is going to win?

      Ragspierre in reply to syn. | February 22, 2016 at 6:32 pm

      Der Donald’s cultists can rationalize anything. And I MEAN ANYTHING.

      They are completely lost to reality. Several of them were always Collectivists pretending to be “conservatives”, even to themselves.

    Mercyneal in reply to Gary Britt. | February 22, 2016 at 9:13 pm

    Um you have posted this before but neglect to mention the two polls that say that both Rubio and Cruz beat Trump handily in a one to one

In exit polling from Saturday night, 33% of people believed that Cruz ran the most unfair campaign; 39% believed that Trump did.

So I’m not really sure what the Trump fans here are on about. If they don’t like “unfair campaigns,” they’re backing the wrong horse already.

    figures don’t lie but liars sure can figure as my old mammy used to say.

    39% exceeds Trump’s 33% support level by 6%.

    33% exceeds Cruz’s 22% support level by 11%.

    Cruz, twice as dirty.

      33% of people believed that Cruz ran the most unfair campaign;
      39% of people believed that Trump ran the most unfair campaign.

      39% is greater than 33%. Surely even you can see this.

      You are really embarrassing yourself here. I almost feel sorry for you.

JimMtnViewCaUSA | February 22, 2016 at 5:29 pm

I’ll still hope for Ted Cruz, who I consider a principled conservative though not likely “a little better than Jesus”
as typed above by Gary Britt (not a Christian, just sayin’
it’s a high bar).
The lack of endorsement by Sarah Palin, the 3rd place in SC (though just a thin margin), and now this … Every campaign has challenges, but I admit that I’m starting to doubt that TrusTed will catch fire this cycle.
The shortcomings of Trump are amply documented, but if it comes to pass I’ll vote for him in an eye blink against Hillary, Bernie or Crazy Joe.

While this is partly media-driven – Trump has said a lot of ridiculous things and suffers no blowback – Cruz simply needs to a do a better job.

I don’t even understand why they are wasting team talking about some of the stuff – bible comments, etc. These are not the key issues in this campaign.

There are critical issues, and the Cruz campaign is looking for stupid gotcha stuff. They are a bit off the rails – these issues are blown up and taken advantage of by everyone else and the media, but to be expected as the outsider candidate.

But to expected

Cruz should not be firing Rick Tyler, but Jeff Roe, who already had a bed rep before working for Cruz.

The campaign is not dishonest.Rick “idiot” Tyler made some very stupid choices. The photo-shop being the first and the awful video post yesterday being the second. He definitely deserves to be fired and I’m glad he’s gone. The campaign staff as a whole were responsible for Iowa-gate. However,that information was also tweeted by the Rand Paul campaign, but no-one cared to report that as Paul exited the race. Rubio staffers too were talking about the odd CNN report and one caucus goer even posted a facebook interview where they received a text from a relative in Missouri during the caucus saying that Carson was dropping out, courtesy of CNN. So the Cruz campaign was not alone in this. Carson’s campaign screwed up royally and so did CNN. Carson has been milking this far too long after he “accepted” an apology and said “as a Christian” he was moving on. Let’s not forget Donald Trump called Carson “pathological” and associated him with child molesters and never apologized. But that didn’t seem to trouble Dr. Carson or the media.
Speaking of dishonest. Rubio and Trump lied and called Cruz a liar during the debate. Cruz was telling the truth about their records. The media refuse to fact check Rubio on amnesty. Cruz and Rubio do not have the same position on amnesty. They never have had the same position.
The Rubio campaign falsely accused the Cruz campaign of setting up a facebook page saying Trey Gowdy changed his support to Cruz. The Cruz campaign never did this. Gowdy and the Rubio campaign admitted they had no evidence whatsoever that the Cruz campaign did it. Rubio continued to blame the Cruz campaign and used it to his advantage to ruin Cruz in SC.
Gowdy was on the Mike Gallagher show today demanding an investigation into alleged robocalls that used “faith-based” language to tell voters not to vote for Rubio in SC. These calls allegedly came from a Super PAC. Gowdy assumes the PAC supported Cruz. No-one knows who made the calls. But Cruz is getting the blame on national radio.
Trey Gowdy, wants an investigation into a First Amendment political speech call made by a Super PAC that is not in any way controlled by the candidate. He doesn’t know if it was made by a pro Cruz PAC. It was “reported” to him anecdotally by voters in SC, but he is publicizing it on national radio. But he flubbed Hilarys Benghazi hearing? What an establishment hack.

The Rubio campaign left thousands of vitriolic fliers on the windshields of Cruz supporters cars last week in SC that were not being reported by the media. They ran nasty ads on television that were worse than anything reported about the Cruz campaign.
Rubio cannot run on his issues because he supports amnesty and the I-squared bill. He supports every subsidy known to man. He cannot win with the Trump supporters because of his support of amnesty. The only way to the nomination for Rubio,is to take out Cruz and hope that Cruz supporters will fear a Trump nomination so much that they will come home to the establishment and Rubio.
He cannot beat Cruz on policy or substance. He is using Alinsky tactics to attack Cruz’s greatest strength and his own greatest weakness. Cruz has always been a man of character in the Senate. Cruz has always been trustworthy. Cruz went to the Senate and stood up against the establishment. He did what he said he would. He is trusted.
Rubio went to the Senate and betrayed his constituents. Rubio is attacking Cruz’s character as a dirty campaigner to win the only way that Rubio could.

A little while back, I argued that Marco Rubio’s tactics in attacking Ted Cruz’s Senate record on immigration and national defense, among other things, were Alinskyite. They were and still are simply and demonstrably dishonest. Yet he persists, knowing full well that by the time the truth catches up with him, if ever, the damage will have been done. More recently, Rubio and his campaign team have intensified and broadened their Alinskyite tactics, now focusing on the ultimate personal smear — that Ted Cruz is a serial liar. Even in this, Rubio is not original. Of course, Donald Trump has been calling his opponents liars as an almost Tourette’s-like response against anyone who reminds him of his past but recent support for leftists and leftist causes, some of whom and which he still embraces.

But Rubio’s smears are part of a more deliberative and unrelenting propaganda campaign. They are now at the core of his campaign effort to dislodge Cruz and clear the field against Trump.

Saul Alinksy explained it this way: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Rubio fancies himself the next Ronald Reagan. But such self-aggrandizement is unmerited. He’s more Alinsky.

Mark Levin has still not endorsed anyone. But he’s UNENDORSED Der Donald and Rubio now.

So the handwriting is on the wall.

    Granny55 in reply to Ragspierre. | February 22, 2016 at 6:58 pm

    All with the help of the entire media! I agree with the Cruz campaign to fire this guy. There have been some mis-steps, no matter who’s fault, that should have never happened. I want to see Cruz above the fray. Cruz can take the hits because he is quick on his feet and can respond. But it sounds like he is getting very bad advice and not following his heart. He can do this without falling into Rubio’s false bravado and Trump’s bullying of EVERYONE!

    It is quite apparent that the RNC and the media are in take down mode. First Cruz then Trump and give us the mealy mouth mouse Marco Rubio. I will not fall prey. It is Cruz or I stay home. Not letting the RNC/Media put forth their candidate only to get killed at the polls by the now openly socialist/communist democrap candidate.

I sense a tremendous fraying of nerves in the cruzbot force….

Episode V Revenge of the Trumpire begins…

Candidate A — has a communications director who sent out a tweet, based on a CNN report, which may have influenced some caucus-goers (but this has not been demonstrated).

Candidate B — scammed people out of tens of thousands of dollars by promising to reveal foolproof secrets of wealth but giving them essentially nothing for their money.

Who’s the worst sinner? In Trumpbot World, it’s obviously Candidate A (but only if Candidate B is named Donald J. Trump).

Keep your eyes peeled people. RNC and media are pushing Rubio or Kasich. They will try anything in their power to kill off Cruz and/or Trump.

Fox News is the leading contributor of this RNC ruse. Used to love Brett Baier and his six oclock news hour and his guests. They are all in the tank for Rubio or Kasich. So no more watching that crap channel!

Gosh, there is a lot of animosity toward Cruz over this.
Hey, he fired the guy.
Ain’t that enough?
Was he supposed to Disembowel the guy and set him afire?
Would that be enough?
Anyhow, the net is burning up because finally, and at last, they think they have something on Cruz.
Try again.

If Carl Rove hates Cruz, that is a big endorsement for me. As for Trump vs Hillary….she is the devil we know. She is pure evil, but I suspect Trump is just as evil.

Tonight — Cruz flattens O’Reilly’s Open Borders apologetics; comes down hard on illegals — Yes, he will deport them!

Inspirational! Go Ted Cruz!

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/feb/22/ted-cruz-says-hed-deport-all-illegal-immigrants-us/

    Another Me Too Teddy Lie. He has already previously said he won’t round up illegals to deport.

    You can’t deport them if you don’t go out and find them.

    He’s trying to lie and sound like Trump just like he LIES when he mentions the “wall”. He will NEVER build a 1,000 mile long 30ft high Trump Wall. He will build the same kind of useless fencing that McCain, Graham, and Rubio would build, AND VERY LITTLE OF THAT.

    There is NO DIFFERENCE between Cruz and Rubio on border security and Cruz has previously proposed increasing H1B visa caps by 500,000 per year !!!

    Only Trump gets immigration and trade and only Trump’s immigration and trade policies have the Jeff Sessions endorsement.

    Cruz and all but Trump have still refused to answer Jeff Sessions test questions on trade (obamatrade).

      Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | February 23, 2016 at 6:51 am

      “You can’t deport them if you don’t go out and find them.”

      More of your stupid lying.

      T-rump will never “round them up”, either. HE lies. And you repeat his lies.

      A massive “round up” is economically crazy,and both legally and politically impossible.

      But deporting them using the LEOs and the laws we already have IS doable. That’s what Cruz has in mind.

      And for the record, Cruz and Sessions killed the bill Donald Ducks was pushing for back in the Gang Of Eight Days, leaning on his gaggle of Deemocrat buds for whom he’d contributed.

        That fact that you don’t want something to be a true factual statement doesn’t make it a lie. It just makes it inconvenient.

        In Rags Bizzaro World everything that doesn’t conform to your OPINIONS is a lie, and your OPINIONS ARE FACTS.

        An excellent reason to oppose Cruz is that a person like you supports him. That says it all.

      Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | February 23, 2016 at 6:54 am

      “…only Trump’s immigration and trade policies have the Jeff Sessions endorsement.”

      You tell that lie often.

      Put up links quoting Sessions “endorsing” Der Donald, liar.

        I tell that TRUTH often and then you, as per your usual factless behavior, call anything discomforting for Cruz a lie.

        Sessions helped write Trump’s immigration plan/policies and appeared with Trump when they were announced wearing a Trump Make America Great Again hat. He has made numerous statements to the press endorsing Trump on immigration and trade.

        Now how about you posting a link where Cruz gave Jeff Sessions the common courtesy of responding to his public call for all candidates to answer 5 “test” questions on trade agreement policy. What you can’t do it? That’s because CRUZ LIKE RUBIO NEVER ANSWERED. He ignores Sessions. They are NOT FRIENDS and Cruz wants to hide the fact that CRUZ LIKE RUBIO supports Obamatrade.

        “Of all the Republican candidates left in the race, Sessions said that Trump is the candidate whose priorities align the closest to his own.”

        “I happened to catch Trump yesterday in his Atlanta speech,” he said. “I thought he was very clear, and very strong on trade. Nobody is close to that as of this date, I have to say.”

        “[He] has validated my view that the American people will respond if these issues are properly discussed with them, and nobody really did until Trump, and he surged to the top,” Sessions said.“The American people are thinking, and they are concerned about both of these issues, and Trump has gained support on that.”
