Cruz: “Let Me Be Blunt About Trump”

From a fundraising email that just turned up in my box, the rudiments of how Ted Cruz’s campaign intends to respond to Donald Trump’s withering negative attacks:

When I first announced my campaign, Heidi and I committed that we would run an issues oriented, positive campaign. Unfortunately, my friend, Donald Trump, didn’t make that same commitment.

While Donald continues with personal attacks — and vulgar profanities — I do not intend to respond, but that won’t stop Donald.

He is so rattled by my surge in the polls, our victory in Iowa, and our strong finish in New Hampshire that he has decided to continue his scorched earth campaign in an attempt to burn down everyone and everything in his path.

I can’t fault Donald for this…it’s the only way he can distract voters from his record:

  • Support for Hillary-style healthcare;
  • Support for partial birth abortion;
  • Support for bank bailouts;
  • Support for Obama stimulus; and
  • Enthusiastic embrace of eminent domain.
