Ted Cruz Isn’t Cheating, He’s Winning

Ted Cruz Isn’t Cheating, He’s Winning. There is fierce controversy over the non-vote in Colorado, where Cruz picked up all the delegates at meetings of national delegates by party insiders and activists, rendering an Republican primary election pointless. It makes a mockery of democracy however, leaving roughly 90 percent of the more than 1 million Republican voters on the sidelines. Rush Limbaugh weighs in:

Now, what happened in Colorado is, I’m sorry to say, it’s not a trick. What happened in Colorado is right out in the open. Everybody’s known how Colorado runs its affairs. Everybody has known. … It’s not a secret. It’s just nobody leaked it. Nobody talked about it. Nobody bragged about it. So it was left to be discovered by people who didn’t know. And it turns out that people on the Trump campaign didn’t know.

Now, I can understand how they might feel tricked here. … None of this is a mystery.  This is the definition of insider versus outsider.  This is a classic illustration of how an outsider has to learn the insider game to play it.

Every business has its rules and laws, bylaws, and specific ways that you have to climb the ladder of success.  In addition to that, people that run the club — in this case, the Republican establishment — are not gonna sit idly by and let a bunch of outsiders … come in and take it.  It’s too valuable. …

So I don’t see Ted Cruz lying and cheating his way to the convention.  I see a lot of hard work.  … The Cruz team is serious about winning.  They have made themselves fully aware of how the process works, and they’ve been out working it for quite a while. …

Why is Trump having a delegate disaster?  It’s Ted Cruz.  It isn’t the establishment.  … f the establishment or Cruz succeed, if Trump doesn’t get his 1,237 before the convention, it may be over, the way this is going.  Because what Cruz is sewing up is delegates on the second ballot.
