Those cooky Cruz’s and their penchant for hyperbole, they’ve really outdone themselves this time with their comparison of Ted’s campaign to that of the plight of slavery.
On Tuesday, wife Heidi Cruz told the campaign’s National Prayer Team on a conference call:
“Think that slavery — it took 25 years to defeat slavery. That is a lot longer than four years.”
Yes, slavery. That time in American history where men, women and children were forcefully bred, sold, tortured, murdered and forced to work for free for a few centuries until this country fought the practice in a bloody, brutal war and decades of legislative battles. Apparently, Heidi believes to some degree Cruz is President Lincoln in this story. Groan.
Heidi also said that their timing had been off, God totally meant four years from now Ted would be president:
“I don’t want you to feel like any of this was in vain. I believe in the power of prayer. This doesn’t always happen on the timing of man, and God does not work in four-year segments.”
And if you thought you’d seen the last of Ted Cruz shy of his doings in the Senate, you were so wrong.
Ted announced on Tuesday to conservative host Glenn Beck that if he wins Nebraska he’ll consider taking a defibrillator to his lifeless campaign:
“We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory. If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.”
If Ted is unable to save his campaign, it sounds like the Cruz’s might be setting the stage for another run four years from now. God help us all.
“We are not only keeping this band together, we have been having meetings five hours a day since the time we dropped out. Every single person in our leadership team in our campaign, Ted and I will probably be working with on a weekly basis in the next four years.”
Sounds like a severe case of delusions of grandeur. Can we hurry up and get the DC Madam list already so we can end this madness once and for all?
