Following on the news that Ted Cruz is catching up to Trump in the South Carolina primary, I get this release from the Cruz campaign:
Cruz Responds to Misleading New York Times Story
HOUSTON, Texas – Today, Presidential candidate Ted Cruz responded to a misleading story in the New York Times claiming Cruz criticized Donald Trump at an event last night:
“In the course of a Presidential election, the voters are going to make a decision about every candidate. And ultimately the decision is, who has the right judgment and the right experience to serve as Commander in Chief? Every one of us who is running is being assessed by the voters under that metric, and that is exactly why we have a democratic election to make that determination.”
I’m assuming this is the item to which the release refers.
We know that it’s Cruz’ strategy to inherit Trump’s support when he (if he) implodes, but this takes it to another level — issuing a “correction” to make sure that no one think for a moment that he has a problem with anything Trump says or does?
Cruz didn’t name Trump while he was talking about Trump. That makes it all right.
As J.K. Rowling said, He Who Must Not Be Named:
Here’s a bit of irony: If you Google the phrase, “He Who Must Not Be Named,” Google immediately answers, “Lord Voldemort.” No bones about it. They just come right out with it.
It’s like they don’t get it at all.
