Self inflicted damage

Had Ted Cruz come out unequivocally denouncing Friday's disruptive Chicago protests, and defended Donald Trump's right to expression (however objectionable some find it), and to hold an unmolested campaign rally, under the First Amendment, he would have clearly differentiated from Marco Rubio and John Kasich.

It might have cleared a path to the nomination, and opened a door for Trump supporters to later support Cruz.

Instead, Cruz chose to lock arms with weak-kneed status quo.

Cruz apparently isn't the constitutionalist he brands himself as. He's become indistinguishable from other establishment hacks.

  1. Hey Doug;

    I voted Cruz when we had our primary, but this really disappointed me. He was soo afraid to be associated with the Donald that he blames Trump, and not the protestors, the ones that were organized by all the liberal groups. Wait until they get embolden and start crashing his rally's. To a leftist, Free speech is great...if you agree with them. I you don't you are evil and have to be shut down....where is the vaunted tolerance of the Left?
