      Governor Cuomo is allowed to define NY values … Donald Trump is allowed to define NY values but all h— breaks loose if Ted Cruz does likewise. It’s the definition of the liberal double standard.


      Ted Cruz – 6th Republican Debate – January 13, 2016
      CRUZ: … there are many, many wonderful, wonderful working men and women in the state of New York. But everyone understands that the values in New York City are socially liberal or pro-abortion or pro- gay-marriage, focus around money and the media.

      Governor Cuomo – January 17, 2014
      …. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

      Donald Trump – October 24, 1999
      RUSSERT: Partial birth abortion. Eliminating of abortion in the third trimester. Big issue in Washington. Would President Trump ban partial birth abortion?

      TRUMP: Well, look, I’m very pro-choice…and again, it may be a little bit of a New York background, because there is some different attitude in different parts of the country, and you know, I was raised in New York, and grew up and work and everything else in New York City.

      RUSSERT: But you would not ban it.

      TRUMP: No…I am pro-choice in every respect as far as it goes, but I just hate i

      Ted Cruz – An Apology … A Clarification … not a retreat.


      Ted Cruz – January 15, 2016

      “Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo have all demanded an apology and I am happy to apologize.

      I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers that have been held down by liberal policies in New York City.

      I apologize to the hard-working men and women in the state of New York who have been denied jobs because Gov. Cuomo won’t allow fracking. Even though there have been many high-paying jobs just south in Pennsylvania, New Yorkers have been denied the chance to provide for their families.

      I apologize to all the pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-Second Amendment New Yorkers told by Gov. Cuomo that they have no place in New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

      I apologize to all the small businesses that have been driven out of New York City by crushing taxes and regulations.

      I apologize to all of the African American children who Mayor De Blasio tried to throw out of their schools that were providing a lifeline to the American dream.

      And I apologize to all of the cops, firefighters, and 9/11 heroes who had no choice but to stand and turn their backs on Mayor De Blasio, because Mayor De Blasio, over and over again, stands with the looters and criminals rather than the brave men and women of law enforcement.”

      And to the millions of conservatives–working men and women in New York, with common sense values, trapped by the failures of your political leaders–I am glad to tell you, help us on the way. 2016, like 1980, will bring America back.”

      GO FOR IT TED! Expose the campaign conservative to the uninformed … the campaign conservative who is thisclose to the Clintons. Donald Trumps may talk the conservative talk but … on so many levels … has not walked the walk.

      Jeb Bush – December 9, 2015
      “Maybe Donald negotiated a deal with his buddy @HillaryClinton,” Jeb Bush tweeted. “Continuing this path will put her in the White House.”



      Fiorina Slams Trump: I Didn’t Get a Call From Bill Clinton Or Give to Foundation
      6 August 2012
      “I didn’t get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race. Did any of you get a phone call from Bill Clinton? I didn’t. Maybe it’s because I hadn’t given money to the foundation, or donated to his wife’s Senate campaign. Here’s the thing that I would ask Donald Trump in all seriousness. He is the party’s frontrunner right now, and good for him. I think he’s tapped into an anger that people feel. They’re sick of politics as usual. You know, whatever your issue, your cause, the festering problem you hoped would be resolved, the political class has failed you. That’s just a fact. And that’s what Donald Trump taps into. I would also just say this, since he has changed his mind on amnesty, on healthcare, and on abortion, I would just ask what are the principles by which he will govern?”


      Donald Trump – 2007
      “I think it was very good. I think she came out with an idea. It’s a very, very complex set of things going on right now in terms of healthcare. But she came out with an idea, it sounds like a pretty good idea, and a lot of people like it and embraced it. And she learned a lot from her previous encounter.”


      Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump

      Donald Trump – March 2008
      “I know Hillary and I think she’d make a great president or vice-president. Hillary is smart, tough and a very nice person, so is her husband. Bill Clinton was a great president. They are fine people. Hillary was roughed up by the media, and it was a tough campaign for her, but she’s a great trooper. Her history is far from being over.”

      Ted Cruz gets it!


      Cruz counterpunches against Trump
      January 12, 2016

      After months of caution about criticizing Trump’s campaign, Cruz of late has gone more negative on the GOP front-runner. ….

      “I will say it is more than a little strange to see Donald relying on as authoritative a liberal, left wing, judicial activist Harvard Law professor who is a huge Hillary supporter,” Cruz told reporters in Hudson, New Hampshire, Tuesday. “It starts to make you think, gosh, why are Hillary’s strongest supporters backing Donald Trump?”


      “You know, the past couple of elections we saw the Democrats thrilled that they got the nominee they wanted to run against in the general election,” he said. “And it seems the Hillary folks are very eager to support Donald Trump and the attacks that are being tossed in my direction.”

      Ted Cruz really gets it!


      6th Republican Debate
      January 14, 2016

      TRUMP: … Lawrence Tribe and (inaudible) from Harvard — of Harvard, said that there is a serious question as to whether or not Ted can do this. OK? ….

      CRUZ: Well, listen, I’ve spent my entire life defending the Constitution before the U.S. Supreme Court. And I’ll tell you, I’m not going to be taking legal advice from Donald Trump.

      TRUMP: You don’t have to. Take it from Lawrence Tribe.

      CRUZ: Mr. Trump is very focused on Larry Tribe. Let me tell you who Larry Tribe is. He’s a left-wing judicial activist, Harvard Law professor who was Al Gore’s lawyer in Bush versus Gore. He’s a major Hillary Clinton supporter. And there’s a reason why Hillary’s supporters are echoing Donald’s attacks on me, because Hillary wants to face Donald Trump in the general election.

      TED CRUZ – 2016

      If you Cruz, you’ll lose. Cruz is scrambling to try and save face because of what he said. Now he’s becoming eccentric, arrogant and going to the extreme. People who support Cruz are scrambling because Donald is the leading favorite, with good reason.

      The collection of crap is becoming obnoxious, misleading articles, exaggeration, fiction writings, the untruth, outright lies, we know how the media works. They will say and write anything for a story, especially toward a front-runner. Some people thrive on reading the sh**!
