The rich irony of the past few weeks is that the Establishment GOP is attempting to get the “dirty trickster” label irrevocably attached to Ted Cruz and his campaign because they do not want a President Cruz challenging the status quo and exposing all of the true dirty tricks in Washington, DC. Dirty tricks, after all, are the modus operandi in our nation’s Capitol. It is a dirty trick to say you are “reducing spending,” when all you are doing is simply not spending as much as you could have spent or wanted to spend. It was a dirty trick when the Democrats decided to use a procedural technique to “deem” Obamacare to have been passed, even though the Senate and the House never voted on the same bill. And it was a dirty trick for Republicans to campaign on repealing Obamacare, but then simply sit back in Congress while the law went into effect.
So why Ted Cruz…Cruz– The only courageous conservative that has a committed base– A large and growing number or small donors– Strong Super PAC support (all philosophical)– He’s a constitutionalist – grounded philosophically as a “movement conservative”– Can attract traditional conservative, evangelicals, Tea Party, liberty and Reagan Democrats– He has consistently outperformed every other candidate with the youth vote in early states– A consistent, disciplined and articulate conservative message– He has more money than any other candidate left in the raceWith Jeb Bush out of the race, he has raised more money than any other candidate in the race, Super PACs supporting him have more money than other and as of the last filing, he had more cash on hand than any other candidate in the race!

Ted Cruz doesn’t belong in Washington. I say that not because he’s harmful to have there, but because he’s great for the nation to have there. He doesn’t belong there though, because he’s one of the few major, national figures who doesn’t care about being liked by the establishment.
I guess the evidence shows he was actually FOR IT
Trump has repeatedly claimed that he was against the Iraq War before it began, despite no evidence of him publicly stating this position. On Meet the Press, Trump said there weren’t many articles about his opposition because he wasn’t a politician at the time.
