The attacks have begun in earnest on Ted Cruz, and I hope he is ready to fight.
I have said for some time that if you are going to carry the cross, you’d better be Jesus.
The Republicans are flawed, but we always appear holier than thou, which has allowed the Left to flourish. Republicans have needed flawed candidates, and not the “goody two shoes” that we tend to put up.
That said, I like that Cruz has worn his religion on his sleeve, and that he talks openly about issues like abortion and sanctity of marriage. However, as I say often on my radio show, you MUST balance that with, “I’m a sinner, I’m not perfect, so don’t expect it.”
Now the leaks are coming, and from none other than the National Enquirer.
“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” claimed a Washington insider.
“The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”
The ENQUIRER reports that Cruz’s claimed mistresses include a foxy political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney!
No women are named in the story, though I know of some of the women based on rumors. The women are described, and at least one will come as no surprise.
Further I have known about the brewing scandal for a while, and as recently as a week or so ago, a person contacted me to discuss the “inside scoop” of this. I refused to write about it at the time, as I felt that there wasn’t enough evidence, and I didn’t want to sensationalize something just for website traffic.
I will say that from my own personal knowledge of the campaign, I questioned a few changes that occurred early on, but again I felt it was “business as usual.” The story is now out and gaining traction, so I decided the time was now to weigh in, since it was published recently in the Political Insider.
It will be an interesting week in the news cycle, so let’s see how this gets handled. When you consider all the shenanigans of the Clintons–yes, both of them–and the potential bombshells of The Donald, a “scandal” like this should be page 16 of the Lifestyle section. But you can bet that where Trump is involved, it will be Page One until Ted cries, “Uncle!”
