Trump won the debate hands down. Last night and today the Fox News pundits keep saying Cruz won the birther issue. I watched that debate section several times and did not see where Cruz won anything. He actually drew more attention for supporting arguments against his own stance. To Trump it was like catching a small fish to little to keep. The Donald shook his head and let Ted off the hook. Trump warned him that he would be sued, guess that’s all Trump can do. Here is the reason why Cruz is in big trouble with his birther issue and the biggest loser in that argument:
First – when has Trump been wrong yet on his judgment calls in forecasting what is taking place or about to take place?
Answer: So far – never. All things Trump has stated have turned out to be correct, he always does his homework and gets professional expert advice. Trump has been watching this for a long time and wants it officially settled so there are no surprise law suits that interfere with a fair race for all the candidates running, including himself.
Second – There are already electorate eligibility suits against Cruz seeking Declarative Judgment and Injunction in five different states. Illinois, Vermont, Florida, Maryland, and as of today -Texas. Democrat Grayson has been announcing for a long time that he will sue Cruz if he wins the nomination. So, was Trump just blowing smoke to cause problems for Cruz?
Answer: No. Cruz was the foolish one and biggest loser for not listening and thinking all he has to do is ignore it and it will go away like it did for Obama. (He failed to recall that Obama paid over 2 million in attorney fees to keep this silly issue at bay).
This may start a movement of electorates coming out and filing their own complaints. People have had enough of this from watching Obama all these years. They aren’t going to let this go. They have learned a hard lesson.
Yet, today, many pundits are saying Cruz stood up against Trump and won. I differ in opinion on that. To me, not listening and brushing off an unsettled serious issue as silly is not winning. It is child like folly. For you see, when an adult enters a room and sees marker scribbles on the wall, a child can scream he didn’t do it all he wants. But, when ink from the marker is all over the child’s face and fingers, and no one else was in the room, he is the one who wrote on the wall.
The question is, why isn’t the GOP doing anything about this issue? Could it be they don’t care? Could they just be wanting to have a mess so they can go to convention and choose their new candidate? Or something else? I wouldn’t rule anything out except Cruz’s birth eligibility to run for office.
