I point out what they did not

From USA Today: "Cruz aide: Trump should drop out if below 50% in New York."

There is an interesting detail missing from this story.

From USA Today:
Ted Cruz and company are playing the expectations game in New York — including the taunt that front-running businessman Donald Trump should withdraw from the Republican race if he can't crack 50% in his home state.
“If he doesn’t get over 50%, he should probably consider dropping out, like everyone else has when they don’t win their home state in a dramatic fashion,” Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe told ABC News’ “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, presumably referring to Marco Rubio in Florida.
Roe quickly added that he doesn't expect Trump to follow his advice.
Interestingly enough, the story failed to mention that Cruz did not crack 44% in Texas. Trump got 26%.

Kasich failed to top 47% in Ohio. Trump got 36%.

The story failed to mention that.

I laugh. A sitting senator with the support of the governor failed to crack 50%, and now his campaign demands that Trump do that in New York?

This race is over and has been over, but to hang on to power, the Republican insiders want to toxify Trump to make victory impossible in November so they can hang on to power.

It won't work.

This election is a great awakening. I am seeing how the Party of Reagan became the Party of Ruin.

  1. If Trump is the nominee, the Whigs will have to cut a deal.

    If they try to destroy him, they'll themselves,

    If they lose control of Congress, this crew will never get it back and Congress is where the money and the goodies are. The Democrats controlled Congress for almost 50 years with a couple of brief interludes after WWII.

    They've proven they don't really need a Republican Party to claim we're a democracy.

    We'll see how suicidal McConnell and Ryan really are.

    1. "The Democrats controlled Congress for almost 50 years with a couple of brief interludes after WWII."

      And Newt put an end to that and 4 years later he was stabbed in the back by the GOPe, the same people who are trying to destroy Trump.

  2. It has been a strange election year. People keep making arguments that can be applied just as easily to their favored candidate as well as the candidates they do not favor. People keep making plans that are political fantasy football, pure products of cloud-cuckoo-land. People run around wildly making predictions based on polls for political events over six months away when the actual nominations haven't been clinched.

    Perhaps these "Airings of the Grievances" were necessary, but it sure picked a weird time to happen.

  3. If this election is unique, it is because Donald spends all his time talking about polls and nothing about programs, likely because his self-love puts his attention in place he likes to think about - and besides he cannot remember his program details or where his stance on a controversy should be. That happens when you spend your life without principles.

    I lead with than comment in order to say that the Cruz campaign spokesman has been drawn into the same mindset as our New York liberal. The Cruz campaign needs to apologize for saying something that stupid. In the apology the aide should point out that Ted Cruz did not make the statement - because he doesn't think that way.

    But Don Surber brings up this nothing point but remains silent on the Trump rants against Michelle Fields - blame it on the victim.

    1. Michelle is a pretty decent actress. Her little crying jag about the "incident" was almost believable, until I saw this:

    1. Michelle Fields is as fake as your argument.

    2. For her own sake I hope Michelle Fields does not take in a "Black Friday" sale.

      Really.

    4. Michelle Fields is not a victim, but a perpetrator. You need to lay off the faux noise, MeGYN will rot your brain.
      As for Trump and issues, you need to pay better attention. he has covered them completely even if Ruperts retards won't report it.

  6. Don, I'll point out what you did not. Rubio and Carson were still in the race for Texas, getting 22% between them. In a three person race, Cruz would have easily topped 50%. So, you are no different than "them", cherry-picking data and distorting it to suit your position/candidate.

    1. True dat, but Trump got 46% in Florida -- Rubio's home state the same day, more than Cruz so 50+ was doable. My point is Cruz's aide set a bar his fellow could not meet
