Below is a post from Erik Erikson on Washington loving Donald Trump all of a sudden. This post make a powerful case for voting for Senator Ted Cruz in the primaries. For full disclosure – Senator Cruz is the individual whom I support. What I like about Donald Trump is that in his own bombastic way, he has forced the campaigns to talk about issues that are important to the American people like immigration and the economy. However, as much as I believe his love for this country is genuine and he clearly cares about the direction of that the country is going in and I do believe his ability to negotiate is an asset to the country, I am just not comfortable supporting Mr. Trump because of past policy positions. I think we need to hear from him what caused his conversion from supporting Obama to being a conservative and how he would reduce the establishments ability to preserve their power and status quo. I do not believe we have fully heard his position.
For months, Donald Trump’s core supporters have told the nation that they do not care if Donald Trump offends anyone. Everyone is so fixated on being liked, they’ve become politically correct unwilling and unable to offend anyone.
Suddenly, however, the Washington political class is attacking Ted Cruz for being unlikable and the very Trump supporters who love that Trump offends the politically correct now think it is a reason to vote against Ted Cruz that Washington hates him.
Are you people not paying attention?
Former Senator Bob Dole, who ran against Ronald Reagan declaring Reagan would be the death of the GOP, has declared he would rather have Donald Trump than Ted Cruz while endorsing Jeb Bush.
Former Senator Trent Lott, who has regularly attacked the tea party and conservative activists, has declared that Trump is preferable to Ted Cruz.
Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, whose son is an ethanol lobbyist, has declared Cruz must be defeated at all costs.
