Bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump was given a reported $2 billion (as of March 15) or more in free campaign advertising by a corrupt, ratings-hungry media, both on the left, the mainstream media, and on the “right,” the phony conservative network at FOX News.
While campaigns like Ted Cruz’s and others were forced to work their asses off, raising money, going to diners to have conversations with regular folks, going from county to county in crowded campaign buses and raise money by traditional means, New York-based media hung on every word and every tweet of Trump’s, allowing him to fly in on his jet, hold a rally in which he spewed lies and conspiracy theories, and jet back to his posh surroundings without having to talk one-on-one to regular people.
Setting aside that the amount Trump was given by the network in free media, an amount that is roughly 2 1/2 times what Obama spent on his entire 2008 campaign, Ted Cruz was asked by conservative Houston-based radio talk show host Michael Berry if Cruz felt he was treated fairly by the media during the media.
“Well listen, there’s time for recriminations and you know, everyone who was responsible for the rise of Donald Trump, they will bear that responsibility going forward.”
Ted Cruz is too much of a class act to mention names, but we all know who the culprits are, the phony conservatives at New York-based FOX News that gave the New York liberal Trump a deep-throated french kiss after RINO darlings Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio dropped out of the race, while giving wink and nod coverage to utterly unelectable squish John Kasich, who acted only as a spoiler to Cruz, the only true principled conservative in the race.
Cruz told Michael Berry that he did not know what his role would be at the GOP convention in Cleveland in July, or even if he would be allowed to speak, which would be an unusual scenario considering he is the number two man in the race with over 500 delegates. Cruz did confirm that he would definitely be attending the event, “cheering on the delegates.”
The Texas senator did say that he would be speaking at the Texas GOP convention in Dallas on Saturday afternoon and was looking forward to visiting with and thanking the many loyal grassroots supporters who worked for him (over 50,000 volunteers), who “poured their hearts” into the campaign from The Lone Star State.
Cruz said that he wanted to convey thanks and that…
“Although the results may not have been as we wanted, that together we started a movement. And this movement will continue and the principles we’re fighting for are a lot more important than one individual campaign or even one candidate.
The principles we’re fighting for are the principles our country was founded on and that’s the fight that is going to keep going and a movement that is going to keep going and growing stronger.”
Ted Cruz admitted what he is a bit “weary” from the grueling 18-hour days the past several months but said that more than tired he was “invigorated” and “inspired” and overwhelmed with “gratitude for the incredible opportunity to run for president.”
“For someone whose dad came as an immigrant from Cuba, who came from nothing — to find yourself as a candidate for president — to see the kind of support we had — it was the most humbling and overpowering experience of my life,” Ted Cruz revealed to Michael Berry.
“I think we left it all on the field,” Cruz stated about his hard-fought campaign. “We did all that we could,” going on to admit that his “one regret is that we came up short.”
“I’m very sorry to have disappointed so many grassroots conservatives that just poured their hearts into this and I wish the outcome had been different. But at the same time, I have incredible optimism in the long term for this country.
From the beginning of our nation, God’s hand has been on America. That blessing will continue going forward. And I believe the energy and passion and vision of the grassroots of this movement will only continue to grow stronger.”
Spoken like a true statesman. The Reagan of this generation.
