The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

For Ted Cruz, Will It Be Fabulous Fiorina Or The Carly Collapse?

Here's the Nonsense:  Ted Cruz's choice of Carly Fiorina makes a winning combination for America.

Here's the Horse Sense:  Fiorina is the consummate establishment Republican and with her as a running mate it amplifies even more Cruz's ties to the establishment, too, even though his supporters choke on that fact.

Hey Senator Cruz, I know you want people to think that your failed campaign is still going strong.  You'd like people to think that picking Carly Fiorina as your running mate somehow makes everything not just okay, but will make you win the nomination.  Sorry to give you the bad news Ted, but she's not going to be the fabulous solution you dream of.  In fact, she'll cause the collapse of more support from the reality-denying supporters you have left.

Once your remaining supporters find out Carly's Muslim-sympathizing views, any claim you have to making our immigration system safer or that you'll actually do something worthwhile against terrorism and the Islamic State will be long gone.

Let's not forget that Carly praised Islam as CEO of HP.  She sure sounds a lot like John Kerry, the Bush family, and even Barack Obama.  

If she and Ted were elected, I doubt there would be any more effort to release the 28 pages of the 9/11 report that were withheld from the public.  Obama is fighting its release now and Bush kept it from public scrutiny before him.  Being that Ted and Carly are both part of the Bush cabal I think there'd be more effort to keep the truth from the American public.

In case you haven't noticed the Cruz ties to the GOPe, a couple examples are:





  • He also added Neil Bush who is responsible for the Savings & Loan crisis that cost taxpayers $1.5 billion.


And how does Ted keep attacking Trump for donating to the Clinton foundation when Carly has been directly involved in the Clinton Global Initiative?  Donald just donated some money to someone who asked for it.  Carly helped the Clinton efforts.  That makes it kind of tough to try to make anything out of a donation on Trump's part.  Also, notice that Carly's is the one bio that's been removed from the site.

Carly also supported the DREAM ACT that gives citizenship to children brought here illegally as minors.

The list of Carly's problems have been addressed by this writer before.  You can click the following links to see 2 posts I wrote about her last year to warn voters:

No, if Ted's supporters don't already know what Carly is, they need to find out.  She's just another GOPe (GOP establishment) politician.  She didn't move from California to a D.C. suburb in Virginia when she was involved with the Bush administration just because she liked the area.
