The fight heats up
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz returned fire on establishment Republicans Thursday, including former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole, who suggested that Cruz would fare worse in a general election than Donald Trump.
Speaking to reporters following a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Cruz said Dole, among others, were looking to continue the "cronyism" and "corruption" of Washington. "If you think of the last time we beat the Washington cartel it was 1980, it was the Reagan revolution, where millions of Americans rose up," Cruz said. "And I would note that Mr. Dole then opposed Reagan, and said we need someone who can go to Washington who can cut a deal. Well the American people understood that's not what we needed." ...

Always a good idea to prove corruption if you charge it.
This can backfire on a guy.
Where was he the past few months when he could have been slamming people?
Oh yeah, he loved Trump then when he was doing all of the work slamming Jeb and friends while he was nowhere to be found.
Take off eh, you hosers.
Two weeks is a very long time. Cruz will keep hitting on the corruption angle and tie Trump to it. Trump gift-wrapped an easy to understand issue on Trump’s pandering to Big Corn.
The GOPe want Trump because Ted Cruz truly threatens their hold on power. Plus, they know that if Donald Trump gets in he will try to buy these very same politicians off with YOUR MONEY.
In the clip above, Cruz flays Dole, correctly.
He doesn’t say what the headline says he says.
Cruz doesn’t “Slam ... Trump as (a) Corrupt Establishment Leader”
Thanks for the graphic Rush.
You cant talk about president Dole that way... Oh wait...
And exactly what conservative needs further evidence of corruption in D.C.?
Some statements need no explanation or defending.
Criticize a man who served in the Senate longer than Ted Cruz has been shaving and who damn near died under German machine gun fire....way to show your support for veterans, Ted.
THIS IS WHY NOBODY LIKES CRUZ.
Trump/Dole Ticket.... The New GOP
Are you a complete freaking moron? The ONLY candidate who criticized a combat veteran for their service was the idiot Trump. You people have no shame.
The Republican circular firing squad is getting deadly. As a Cruz supporter, I’ll support Trump if he gets the nomination. If Trump moves left, we can fight him after he is elected, but the Democrats are offering nightmares from which we won’t awake. I hope Trump’s supporters feel the same about Cruz.
“Criticize a man who served in the Senate longer than Ted Cruz has been shaving and who damn near died under German machine gun fire....way to show your support for veterans, Ted.”
So all veterans who served in the Senate cannot be criticized? I guess that means we need to leave John Kerry alone, too?

If hypocrisy didn’t exist the Trump cult would invent it.
Trump is not from Washington. Ted is at the moment.
At the end of the day, that may have hurt him more than any of us thought it would.
I can’t say that for sure, but it is possible that folks have been simmering so long over it, they are just refusing to consider a current politician from W., D. C.
I can’t know that now. None of us do. If Ted gets thrashed, and I don’t know that he will, that concept may be closer to the truth than we thought.
If Trump wins, I win
If Cruz wins, I win
If Hillary wins, we all lose.
