There are many reasons why I can’t stand John McCain.
He’s a cantankerous old fart who has used his POW status to milk Conservative America dry. For all intents and purposes McCain is a Democrat.
And yet again he proves to have misplace loyalties, as he pursues a silly course with respect to Ted Cruz.
Apparently when McCain is not counting his houses or trying to remember where he lives, he’s reading the Democratic playbook in order to fight against Conservatives.
The Trump team commented on Ted Cruz’s eligibility for the presidency earlier this week saying,
“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem. It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.”
McCain couldn’t wait to lead the Republicans for Hillary, and chime in as well, and according to AP, McCain argued this week that such questions are reasonable.
On a talk show in Phoenix on Wednesday, McCain said, “I think there is a question. I am not a constitutional scholar on that. But I think it’s worth looking into. I don’t think it’s illegitimate to look into it.”
The facts for Cruz are that he was born in Alberta, Canada, to an American mother and Cuban father, and he gave up any claim to Canadian citizenship in 2014. Cruz has responded that it is “settled law” that a child born to a U.S. citizen, even if they are abroad at the time, is “natural born citizen,” as required by the U.S. Constitution.
The Cruz campaign hit back at McCain Thursday, with communications director Rick Tyler suggesting the senator is just trying to boost Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
“I imagine that the Gang of Eight will stay together and he’ll be for Rubio, so … why not help?” he told Fox News, referencing the 2013 “gang” that worked on an immigration reform bill.
Pro-Cruz super PAC Keep the Promise 1 also said in a statement:
“As Cruz rises in the polls, his opponents are looking for anything to stop his momentum. Raising a matter of law shows there is nothing else to attack him on, and that he’s gotten into their heads. Let’s end these sideshows and get back to talking about who is going to restore peace and prosperity to our nation.”
Cruz is now officially the front-runner for the Republican nomination. He has Trump going after him, RINO McCain going after him, and even White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest got into the fray with inuendo that Cruz may not be eligible.
The Left are scared, and so are establishment Republicans, then I’m being redundant.
