Ted Cruz’s verbal punch in Donald’s nose
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker joined in the complaining that somehow Texas Senator Ted Cruz should’ve endorsed Donald Trump because of the pledge everyone signed after Trump threatened to run as an independent. Aside from pointing out the obvious, that Trump himself said he wouldn’t honor the pledge and he didn’t expect it from the senator, Cruz had another, much more important pledge to honor. Over at RightWisconsin, I explain that when Cruz said vote your conscience, he was acting on his.
Walker even said he thought Cruz had an obligation to abide by the pledge, despite the events that unfolded between Cruz and Trump right here in Wisconsin where Walker was a witness.
Walker’s completely forgotten how Wisconsin voters, because they have a sense of decency, overwhelmingly chose Cruz over Trump. We have to ask, would Walker’s Boy Scout ethics bind him to honoring the endorsement pledge if Trump had ridiculed Tonette instead? Or would he be just as outraged as the rest of us?
Addenda: I’m not a fan of Senator Ted Cruz’s grandstanding in the senate, and I think that he helped contribute to the atmosphere in which Trumpism thrived. But anytime the senator wants to stop by the Wigderson Library & Pub, the drinks are on the house.
