In a secret recording, Ted Cruz admitted that he doesn’t really believe what he is trying to sell to Republican voters. If he’s elected president, a Cruz administration would not fight same-sex marriage. He also backed off of his positions on issues like abortion and Common Core.
Politico released more of the secret tape of Ted Cruz talking to donors at New York fundraiser, and it confirmed what many have long suspected: Senator Cruz is faking it to get elected.
Here’s the report from Politico:
“During the question period, one of the donors told Cruz that gay marriage was one of the few issues on which the two disagreed. Then the donor asked: ‘So would you say it’s like a top-three priority for you – fighting gay marriage?’
“‘No,’ Cruz replied. ‘I would say defending the Constitution is a top priority. And that cuts across the whole spectrum – whether it’s defending [the] First Amendment, defending religious liberty.’
“Soothing the attendee without contradicting what he has said elsewhere, Cruz added: ‘People of New York may well resolve the marriage question differently than the people of Florida or Texas or Ohio… That’s why we have 50 states – to allow a diversity of views. And so that is a core commitment.'”
A well-known Republican operative not affiliated with a 2016 campaign said via e-mail when sent Cruz’s quote:
“Wow. Does this not undermine all of his positions? Abortion, Common Core – all to the states? … Worse, he sounds like a slick D.C. politician – says one thing on the campaign trail and trims his sails with NYC elites. Not supposed to be like that.”
It looks like TrusTED just got Bus-TED for saying one thing to voters on the campaign trail… but something entirely different to big-money donors in private. In New York of all places – and didn’t ol’ Ted criticize those “New York values?” Guess they aren’t a big deal when they’re giving him piles of campaign cash.
Do you still trust and believe in Ted Cruz after you’ve read this report?
