How some conservative media speak about Cruz: From "The conservative treehouse"
Ted Cruz realizes the exposed scheme has the potential to reveal his true character so he goes immediately to the old reliable “I didn’t know” routine.
“Last night when our political team saw the CNN post saying that Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated grassroots leaders just as we would with any breaking news story. That’s fair game. What the team then should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out. his was a mistake from our end, and for that I apologize to Dr. Carson.”
Oh look, another “accident”, another “mistake”, another inadvertent “misstatement”.
He didn’t know he was Canadian. He didn’t know he was voting for TPA. He didn’t know the money he gave the NRSC was used to attack Chris McDaniel. He didn’t know he missed the Goldman Sach’s FEC filing on campaign finance. Notice a pattern?…
The campaign manager, Rick Tyler, and all other participants in the campaign team, then immediately begin obfuscating and manipulating events – belittling Dr. Carson. It’s just how they roll.
The important aspect most people do not internally emphasize or accept is that Ted Cruz’s followers are approximately 15-20% of the Republican primary electorate. They are about 5% of the national electorate….. and these are mostly really nasty people.
The Cruz Clan will never vote for any other candidate in a general election. If they don’t get to vote for the messiah they stay home. It’s all Ted Cruz at all costs, and nothing else matters. That allows them to disconnect from the deception that stands as a necessary foundation for the Cruz campaign.
Hence the psychological manipulation, the need to rely on Cambridge Analytica, and the constant need to go back to the captured audience for money. The plate is passed around the same congregation over-and-over-and-over. Throwing the ju-ju-bones is a familiar technique amid all of the snake handlers and most professionally religious constructs.
However, there is an upside to acceptance. If Ted Cruz does not win the GOP nomination, none of the Cruz Clan will vote in the general election, they never do. They have such a short-sighted narrow view of issues, if they don’t get “their leader” they stay home.
When you accept they will never vote for anyone else, you realize you can stop worrying about their always tender sensibilities. The GOPe have known this for years, and take a dismissive approach to the ‘nuts-over-there‘. When John McCain says “whacko-birds”, it’s the Clan of the Cruz he’s referring to.
Lonely people. Socially isolated. Nasty people. http://theconservativetreehouse.com
