Well, I’m not a Royals fan, but, they’ve done well lately (last couple of years), and have taken control of the World Series, going up 2-0.
But, that’s not all which happened, last night. This did ….
14 million viewers watched the Repub debate on MSNBC, which, of course, is a record for the leftarded media outlet. Cruz knocked it out of the park with that one. Apparently, he raised $ hundreds of thousands just last night. I think that while no one is really talking about Cruz, he’ll be there until the end. His base is solid. They aren’t going anywhere. Contrast that to the candidates who have people jumping from bandwagon to bandwagon. ……. Trump, Carson, Fiorna …… Their base is fluid.
Regardless of any conservative’s or Republican’s view of Cruz, they all agreed with him in the 2 minute video. Many moderates and undecided people did, too.
Some other takes from the debate, according to the consensus of pundits (I didn’t watch the debate, only the videos and read the opinions and play by play.) …… Jeb is done. He went after Rubio and failed. As a tactic, it is a good tactic. If you can’t be the lead vote getter from your home state of Florida, then, you’re not going to win the Repub nomination. It’s just that simple. But, you have to execute your tactics, and Bush failed. Bush has deep pockets and staying power, but, he’s not resonating, and he won’t. I believe it’s simply too late to try and repackage himself, and I don’t know that he’d even try. Either way, he won’t come off as genuine, as he doesn’t today. He’s a guy who Washington insiders want, but, no one else, and he can’t package himself as being someone the people want.
While we’re talking about Florida, even after Jeb quits, and I really believe he will, Rubio is no lock on Florida’s Repubs. Remember, Cruz is Cuban. I promise you, every politically motivated Cuban in Florida knows who Ted Cruz is. And, that brings me to Texas. When Jeb quits, I expect a bump towards Cruz. It is entirely foreseeable that Cruz can win both Florida and Texas, in both the primaries and general election. Have I mentioned that is the only way a Republican can win the general election? Any Republican candidate must win both Texas and Florida to have even a remote chance to be POTUS. There’s simply no way around it. In spite of some other candidates’ ties to other states such as California and New York, no Republican will carry either in the general election in my lifetime, going forward. It simply will not happen, again.
Watch the poll numbers, I expect them to change soon. I don’t believe it will be a wild swing, but, I think the race just got tighter, and some of the pretenders, rather than contenders, will be shown the door.
In response and honor to Cruz’ response, I’ve decided to add another category to write under, “Media”. It’s not that I haven’t written about our LSM, but, now, I’ve added the category. I probably won’t go back and re-label all of the posts that I’ve written, and so, I don’t know how many I will write under this category, but, at least one more.
