LOGIC MINUTE
By Lynn Woolley

There was, perhaps, a final line that Donald Trump had not crossed until Sunday.

He had angered several political communities – mostly on the left – but he had not attacked conservatives.

That changed on FOX News Sunday.

With Ted Cruz nipping at his heels and expected to win Iowa, Trump pounced:

“Look at the way he’s dealt with the Senate, where he goes in there like a – you know, frankly like a little bit of a maniac. You’re never going to get things done that way.” Trump said.

Frankly – that caused me to laugh out loud.

Donald Trump calling someone a “maniac” for not playing nice with others? Trump had led a charmed campaign. But now, he’s attacked the one candidate that is the conscience of conservatives – their shining knight. This harmed him with me – and I suspect with many others.

Hands off Ted Cruz, Donald!

Cruz is not perfect. But he’s been my main candidate since the beginning – and I mean the beginning of when he ran against David Dewhurst for the U.S. Senate seat he now occupies. A lot of conservative see Cruz as the only seriously dependable conservative in Congress – or at last one of a mere handful. Yet, take a look at more of what Trump told Chris Wallace:

“You can’t walk into the Senate and scream and call people liars and not be able to cajole and get along with people. He’ll never be able to get anything done, and that’s the problem with Ted.”

What are to conclude form this? That Cruz could not convince Mexico to pay for the big, impregnable border fence with a beautiful door? On the other hand, Cruz is the ONLY outsider that has inside experience. Cruz is reviled by the GOP establishment – a definite resume enhancement – but is also IS in the Senate. He’s the insider/outsider and nobody else can claim that – not even Trump.

Cruz has a few things to fix – but he’s conservative gold.

Cruz needs to read more about the Gold Standard before he puts us back on it. He should formulate a better way to keep us safe if he’s against collection of several types of data. He needs to sit down with Mike Huckabee and talk about the Income Tax and the Fair Tax.

Regardless, he’s the main member of Congress who actually has tried to stop Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America. If Trump is smart, he’ll join forces with Cruz and together they might win. If not, the proverbial shark is swimming in shallow waters and Trump may have already jumped him.
