Like many of you out there I have not settled on the presidential candidate for whom I would cast my vote in the general election next November.
I noticed during Tuesday’s debate from Las Vegas that as Ayla Brown sang the national anthem, Ted Cruz placed in his hand inside his suit jacket That image reminded me of the famous portrait by Jacques-Louis David of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte with his hand inside his waistcoat. Does Mr. Cruz do this often? I don’t know but I found that to be an odd display.
Rubio has been radioactive to Republicans because of his participation in the Gang of Eight movement to allow amnesty for illegal aliens. Beneath the surface is a simmering battle between Rubio and Cruz on the matter of immigration.
With Cruz coming into his own in Iowa, Rubio is desperate to knock him off his game. Having ducked the question for nearly two years about what a President Cruz would do with the millions of illegals who remain in the U.S., Rubio demanded a straight answer from Cruz.
"I have never supported legalization, and I do not intend to support legalization," the Texas senator said, but he was more than willing to leave reporters with the impression that he was comfortable with legalizing illegal aliens.
Cruz last night: "I have never supported legalization." But he has, and it's on tape: https://t.co/tfZwZfi2zB #FactCheck— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) December 16, 2015
He was working deep undercover in disguise as a bill supporter! https://t.co/bN44tGngQQ— jimgeraghty (@jimgeraghty) December 16, 2015
Cruz, usually a very fluid speaker, struggling to give direct answers to answering tough/fair immigration questions from @BretBaier.— Stephen Hayes (@stephenfhayes) December 16, 2015
In interview w/@BretBaier, Ted Cruz denying that he wanted immigration reform to pass despite saying in 2013 that he wanted bill to pass.— Stephen Hayes (@stephenfhayes) December 16, 2015
I hate the slick, oily way Ted Cruz lies to me. I far prefer the hopeful, optimistic way Marco Rubio lies to me.— The Scandalous DJT (@AceofSpadesHQ) December 16, 2015
