Ted Cruz had another intolerably miserable Tuesday, this time in Indiana. So miserable, in fact, that the he lost his composure early in the day and resorted to uncharacteristic name calling and mud- slinging against his main nemesis, Donald T. Trump.
Unfortunately for the senator from Texas, his outpouring of emotion did not deter the Donald from advancing closer to the coveted GOP nomination. Indeed, the Cruz meltdown did not help his cause one whit, unlike so many of Trump’s tirades which actually ended up helping The Donald, against all conventional wisdom.
At the end of yet another ghastly disappointing Tuesday, Ted Cruz was pinned even tighter against the wall and seething with anger, frustration, and bone-aching weariness.
But rather than make his meltdown even worse, Ted Cruz mustered the strength, courage, and spiritual energy to set aside his savaged emotions in favor of decency, unity, and good grace.
Shortly after Donald Trump was declared the winner of the Indiana primary, Ted Cruz showed his character and mettle by facing America and issuing the following statement:
“From the beginning I’ve said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory,” Cruz said, with his wife Heidi by his side. “Tonight I’m sorry to say it appears that path has been foreclosed.”
“With a heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign.”
Thus ends the incredibly divisive process for the Republican presidential nomination. .Donald Trump will be the GOP nominee and, with God’s help, the next president of the United States!
Ted Cruz unselfishly and with good grace put the process of healing the Republican Party on a fast track by suspending his campaign, improving the odds that the nation can avoid a disastrous third Obama term by electing Hillary Clinton.
For this, Ted Cruz is owed a huge debt of gratitude and thanks.
God Bless Ted Cruz!
