Mr. Cruz made a tactical err launching his run for the Presidency from Liberty University.
Liberty is premillennial in their eschatological doctrine. The "drive-bye" media will hit that hard if he gets off the ground. McCain got in bed with the Rev. John Hagee and this helped to lead to his squirrely campaign of kissy face. Romney, as a Mormon, got stuck in the mud and never took off the gloves to punch Obama where it hurts. You don't enter a gun fight with a knife.
Keep in mind, Obama sat at the feet of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright for "twenty years" absorbing Wright's doctrine of being against "Zionism." From his essay: "I Can't Wait For Christian America To Die." I may be wrong---but are we not seeing this idea coming from Obama's White House?
Wherever the big money goes, so goes the Republican candidate. I read in the paper where the average working man in our country lives from paycheck to paycheck. Interest rates are bound to go up as the economy flounders. Work is difficult to find for the one without a college education. But, that education will take a life time to pay off. One has to have a degree in biology to flip burgers at Otis' dinner in the holler.
Down here in the hills where the coal mines have ground to a halt, the government has come in to dole out free tickets to the company store. I saw the day when our people would have run the liberal city slicker up a greased pole and set fire to it, But, not anymore, it is easier to vote democratic: set on the front porch, keep the old woman pregnant and get more tickets to ensure more votes for the party of hand outs.
Where John L. Lewis freed the coal miners--Obama and his global warming cronies has all but eliminated a generation of Americans who kept this nation in energy. Now that he and Michelle has bought property in Hawaii to retire (at tax payer expanse) with a golf course, and an ocean view to see way over yonder---may the Kilauea volcano erupt and smoke him back to Chicago. So, really, I do not see a Republican in the WH. A hungry man is not going to throw his tickets to a free lunch on the back of an elephant when a jackass is easier to get on.
