Make America Greate Again and Was Ted Cruz Born Here?

1/18/2016  articles

“Make America Great Again” shout the words in white lettering on a bright red peaked cap.

This cap is a promotional tool for multi- billionaire businessman, Donald J. Trump, as he fights his way into the White House.

What propels him is his fearless and powerful give and take with any and all who choose to knock him down for keeps.

Well, Trump is the man who wins by taking charge of the occasion regardless how powerful his opponents might be or claim to be.

Republican Debate, January 14, Charleston, S.C. - The Fur Flies

Ted Cruz is a well educated man who has come under fire for not being, as some say, a “natural born citizen.”

Trump embraces anger, Cruz spurns birther talk, Washington Times, Seth McLaughlin and Stephen Dinan, Jan. 15: “Cruz told Trump to quit questioning whether his birth to a Cuban father and American mother in Canada disqualifies him to be president under constitutional requirements.

“Mr. Trump refused to back down on the ‘birther’ controversy, pointing to legal scholars who have said Mr. Cruz’s eligibility is an unsettled question, and saying Republicans cannot gamble on picking the senator as their champion heading into November’s election…if you become the nominee, who the hell knows if you can even serve in office? There’s a big question mark on your head, and you can’t do that to the party.

“Trump promised he wouldn’t bring a lawsuit, but said it was certain Democrats would.”

Cruz retorted, “The constitution hasn’t changed, but the poll numbers have, and I recognize that Donald is dismayed that his poll numbers have fallen in Iowa.”

In fact, our Judicial system, has never fully defined the meaning of “natural born citizenship.” It would be wise for the Cruz camp to pursue this before the Democrats or someone else sues.

Other presidential debate contenders.

“Sen. Marco Rubio said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is too liberal to be the Republicans’ nominee, pointing to his support for Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, and his state’s embrace of the Common Core education standards.” Christie retorted that he didn’t support Justice Sotomayor – though the record shows that he did support her nomination by Mr. Obama. He said N.J. has recently canceled Common Core.

“Dr. Ben Carson and Chris Christie pushed Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Gov. Jeb Bush to the wings of the stage based on lower poll numbers.

Mr. Trump dominated the conversation and Mr. Cruz carved out a space for himself. The rest of the candidates are still struggling to separate from the pack.

Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, and Carly Fiorina did well in the undercard debate. They attacked Obama’s policies rather than taking shots at one another.

Value of Money, Does that Make the Difference?

Bush Super PAC Lobs Last-Minute Attacks, Fredreka Schouten, USA Today, 1/15

“Spending soars in GOP Primary Battle. Super PACs spending the most in 2016 presidential race (in millions):

“Right to Rise, Jeb Bush $61.1; America Leads, Chris Christie $11.6; Conservative Solutions PAC, Marco Rubio $9.0; New Day for America, John Kasich $4.6.”

“Bush’s struggles have upended traditional notions about the value of money in the 2016 presidential campaign that has seen Trump endure atop national polls, despite spending little. Is the spending working? The votes and delegates will determine that.”
