ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: CRUZ SPEECH TO LAST A LIFETIME


Trump plane lands on Cruz!

Make no mistake about it; Ted Cruz gave the speech of his life, one that will be remembered for a lifetime, his lifetime.  In 2020 when this egotistical maniac runs for president again; there is a portion of the speech he gave at the 2016 RNC that will be played and replayed over and over again and it will haunt him.  Its not what he said at the start of or the middle of the speech but what he didn’t say towards the end.   Cruz was virtually booed off the stage for not endorsing Trump, and not just by the New York delegation as he tried to make you believe.   That moment defined his appearance at the RNC and it will be repeated time after time.   It won’t be forgotten, you can bet any (any) political adversaries in the future will refresh memories.

While Cruz finished up, his wife was being escorted from the convention hall for her own safety.    He didn’t see it coming?   Trump did!   Trump was not surprised or even offended by the non-endorsement; he expected such.   Trump invited Cruz to speak and gave him the rope to hang himself and he took it.   What reason did Cruz have to speak if he wasn’t going to endorse the party nominee for POTUS? It was an attempt to embarrass Trump; to divide the party further.   It brought it closer together.  It was self serving, an attempt to be Reagonistic; that did not work.   Ted Cruz is not Ronald Reagon!

Granted Trump and Cruz were (are) bitter political enemies, an understatement.   He was given an opportunity to be bigger…….he became smaller.   Trump out did him once again.   It started earlier in the evening, Trump’s plane landing in the background even overshadowed the Cruz supporter’s get together.

  1. Good morning! Well, like I posted to the Desert Man, Grrrrrrr! I truly wanted to throw my TV out the front door. His complete BS seems to know no bounds at this point. Well, well, well, didn’t Cruz show what he was made of?! Integrity right out the window and his own agenda laid out on someone else’s platform. Real classy Cruz. But, despite being booed off the stage with his many supporters beyond pissed off, his support page is showing his supporters overwhelmingly applauding his BS tactics! Shaking my head in disbelief! It will be interesting to see if his outraged fans remain outraged and bring about his political Armageddon or if they once again jump on his scheming bandwagon. Good Grief.

    1. I would lay my money on it, Cruz votes for Hillary. He won’t endorse or even publicly say it; but he votes for her. He despises Trump that much, and its all about him, not the country. His strategy will be, Hillary have things such a mess and have more scandals that in 2020 he would beat Hillary. I doubt she would run at 73 yrs of age. Thing is Cruz will need more than his supporters to win a primary; and he may have just blown picking up new support. I Rubio or someone else can stay clean……..Cruz political career could be over. Even Texas was trying to get him to endorse Trump. Trump knew what was going to happen. Trump’s invitation to Cruz to speak despite their history showed more class and the right thing to do than how Cruz’s mishandling of the opportunity. Spite and selfishness. I Newt’s response was perfect!
