  • Former Ben Carson communications director: They gave Cruz a 'loaded pistol'

    Yahoo! News ^ | February 5, 2016 | Allan Smith
    Republican presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson's former top campaign aides think Carson's campaign botched the handling of his post-Iowa caucus trip home to Florida, the fallout of which has pervaded throughout the week. Before the caucuses began, Carson's campaign hastily said that the candidate was heading home "to get fresh clothes," amid speculation that he might be pulling the plug on his campaign. Barry Bennett, Carson's former campaign manager, and Doug Watts, his former communications director, told Business Insider that the candidate was asking for such speculation by making the announcement in the middle of the caucus fury....
  • Trent Lott hates Ted Cruz! A lot! He hates hates hates the guy!

    Redstate ^ | 2/6/2016 | Moe Lane
    Former Senator Trent Lott – who, as you might remember, walked into a political buzzsaw in 2002 over comments that effectively destroyed his Senate career – highly disapproves of this Senator Ted Cruz fellow. Not least because Senator Cruz said some awful, awful things about former Senator Lott’s good friend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It’s always interesting to see how a lobbyist defines ‘inappropriate behavior,’ really. Hoover up all the political pork you can? That’s Senatorial. Call Mitch McConnell a liar over the Export-Import Bank? Call out the Sergeant-At-Arms: “Having been majority leader, I’ve never had someone stand on...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...

    The Iowa Republican winner appeals by trumpeting the gold standard, privacy rights and limits on eminent domain Eric Eastman, a pony-tailed actor from Nashua, N.H., became a coveted commodity here last week. In the hours after Sen. Rand Paul dropped out of the presidential race Wednesday, the libertarian state representative and passionate Paul supporter says he fielded a personal phone call from Jeb Bush and an offer from Donald Trump's campaign promising VIP treatment. Even an aide to Chris Christie reached out. But as he processed his grief over Paul's exit, Eastman already had a new candidate in mind. On...

    In an effort to draw attention to his Kim Kardashian-style vanity campaign, Ben Carson took his contrived outrage mongering against Cruz to a new level yesterday.  During one of his numerous media appearances over the past three days, which is more actual campaigning than he’s done for the past few months while he took a hiatus to sell books, Carson compared Cruz’s behavior in Iowa to Hillary following the Benghazi tragedy. Enough is enough.  If Carson wants to talk about the depths of deception and dishonesty he should “start looking at the man in the mirror.”I was born and bred...

Let's start from the beginning. Shortly before the Iowa caucus was set to begin, CNN's Jake Tapper reported: ...

    I think we now know why Ben Carson and his campaign are making such a fuss over Ted Cruz’s campaign. The Cruz camp took advantage of the Carson campaign’s misstep in Iowa. The Carson campaign generated headlines that Carson was packing it up after Iowa and heading back to Florida. It read to a lot of people, including the Cruz camp, that Carson was dropping out.No, according to Carson, he just needed clean clothes.But since then, the Carson camp has bludgeoned Ted Cruz’s campaign for daring to rapidly respond to Carson’s news far more rapidly than Carson walked it back....

    Washington Post ^ | June 22, 2015 | Marc A. Thiessen
    In the announcement speech for his presidential campaign, Donald Trump railed against Obamacare. "We have a disaster called the big lie: Obamacare," Trump declared. "I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare." Well, that sounds like something a Republican candidate would say. But there is one problem: Trump helped finance the Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006 - which put in place the liberal majority that passed Obamacare over the objections of congressional Republicans. And he continued to support a Democratic Senate majority after Obamacare...

    Donald Trump is blaming rival Ted Cruz - wrongly - for President Barack Obama's health care law. Trump says Cruz is "the one that got Justice Roberts onto the United States Supreme Court. He pushed him, he approved him and Justice Roberts approved Obamacare twice when it should have been rejected." Trump says, "Ted Cruz gave us Obamacare." Cruz did indeed support John Roberts' nomination. But Roberts was confirmed in 2005, years before Cruz was elected to the Senate. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler says, "Trump's claim is ridiculous, especially considering that he has advocated and supported a single-payer health care...

    Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin launched her political action fund, Sarah PAC, in 2009 with the stated purpose "to help elect principled conservative leaders" across the country. But the latest Federal Election Commission filing indicates that money raised in small contributions by Sarah PAC is going to consultants, speech-writing services, direct-mail appeals, as well as stays by Palin in fancy hotels. Sarah PAC raised $950,000 in 2015, spent a total of $1.4 million, and donated just 23,500 to 45 campaigns. It also...

Staffers working for the Cruz campaign reportedly heard the story and began telling caucus-goers Monday night that Dr. Carson planned on dropping out of the race, allegedly attempting to swing voters for Cruz. According to Limbaugh, however, there are reports that the Rubio campaign is just as much to blame for spreading these rumors, trying...

    Ted Cruz: "I think any candidate for President owes it to the voters to go and stand in front of them, to answer the hard questions. I mean, it's a matter of basic respect to the men and women of Iowa...This is a job interview. And if you want a job interview, the first thing you should do to get the job is show up at the interview. And I think it's really remarkable that Donald Trump thinks so little of the men and women of Iowa that he is willing to skip the debate altogether. He doesn't think he...

    A group of pro-life women leaders have a message for pro-life voters ahead of the first presidential primary and caucus votes next month: Don’t vote for Donald Trump, he can’t be trusted on abortion.

The Schooleys like Cruz's faith and his fealty to the Constitution. But their choice is also shaped by their wariness of the Republican front-runner, Donald Trump. "He's not principled," James Schooley told me, referring to Trump. "He just goes by emotion." "I feel like he doesn't stick to the Constitution...
