Ted Cruz Made a Big Mistake Getting In Bed with the Establishment

A terrible strategy from a good man.

By Jeffrey Lord – The Spectator

I confess I am astounded.

Having written some columns in favor of a Trump-Cruz ticket, knowing that one primary after another has anti-Establishment candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz collectively racking up as much as 80% of the vote, it certainly seemed crystal clear what Republican voters were saying.

Under no circumstances did they want an umpteenth GOP Establishment candidate who was nothing more than Democrat-lite or so tied into the Establishment that one could be sure only that the last thing they would bring to the White House was serious change. Clearly, in the minds of GOP voters Trump and Cruz were the anti-Establishment guys. Hooray!
