This is why I changed my support from Cruz to Trump because there was something about Cruz I did not trust. Cruz is just another Washington politician and will do anything to win. As I have stated earlier, he is not a born and bred American. A true patriot would not have committed this unethical behavior. Now I wonder how the American people will feel about this politician – will they look at him as just another politician liar.
Is Ted Cruz another Obama? This is hard to believe. Cruz is suppose to be this big Christian and all of these evangelicals who voted for him – I wonder how the people of Iowa feel this morning – will they feel they have been swindled. We must be sure he is eligible or qualified to run for president. Cruz and Rubio are not born and bred Americans. Their values are not American.
Is Cruz now trying to drag Trump into his swindle by saying his daughters act more grown up than Trump is reacting. – why is he dragging his children into this fray. Wasn’t he the one who early on said his daughters were off limits?
Carson’s feud with Cruz over ‘dirty tricks’ continues.
Timothy Meinch, The Des Moines Register 12:06 p.m. EST February 3, 2016
Ben Carson’s caucus night criticism of “dirty tricks” from the Ted Cruz campaign escalated Tuesday with stronger language from the neurosurgeon’s team and an apology from the Texas senator.
Carson, who finished fourth in Monday’s Republican caucuses, criticized the winning Cruz camp of using “shameless tactics and dirty political plays” by fueling false rumors that Carson was dropping his presidential bid.
“There is no place for this kind of unethical behavior in our American political culture,” Carson said in a statement Tuesday, “and it only intensifies my desire to work extremely hard to break down the ugliness in this system.”
Cruz on Tuesday said his campaign should have corrected misinformation that it shared with supporters, asking them to spread it among Carson fans before they cast ballots Monday.
Cruz, in a statement Tuesday, said that “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.”
The breaking news referred to an article from CNN announcing Carson would take a campaign break by flying to Florida late Monday, rather than traveling immediately to New Hampshire or South Carolina where the next primaries are scheduled.
Ben Carson: ‘I’m not going anywhere’
Carson leaves Iowa for ‘fresh set of clothes’
Iowa’s U.S. Rep. Steve King, who co-chairs the national Cruz campaign, interpreted that news to mean Carson was dropping out, according to a tweet he sent a 7:20 p.m. Monday: “Carson looks like he is out. Iowans need to know before they vote. Most will go to Cruz, I hope.”
(U.S. Rep. Steve King was a part of this conspiracy – this tells you why our government is in the shape that it is in – nothing but a bunch of crooks.)
Carson’s Iowa campaign co-chair, state Rep. Rob Taylor, demanded an apology from King on Tuesday, describing the campaign tactic as potential libel or slander and certainly “defamation of character.”
“This is horse s—, bottom line,” Taylor told reporters Monday night.
King posted on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon “I respect Ben Carson & regret any miscommunications.”
(Oh, sure, after it is over – Did King lie, too?)
Iowa caucusgoers at multiple precincts told the Register that Cruz representatives who gave speeches announced Carson was suspending his campaign.
“That was totally inappropriate,” said Barb Heki, a 60-year-old home-school leader who lives in Johnston. Heki, who caucused for and gave a speech in support of Mike Huckabee, said she was shocked to hear the attack on Carson.
“I think it would have an impact on anybody who was supporting Carson,” she said. “What were people supposed to think?”
(What is so ironical is that Carson stated just the other day that the American people need to take a good look at Trump. Did he really intend to say the name – Cruz?)
