Uh-oh, Ted Cruz has made Ben Carson mad

Ben Carson is mad at Ted Cruz because he says that Cruz’s campaign sabotaged his own by circulating a false rumor at caucus voting precincts that Carson had suspended his campaign and thus depressed the vote for him. This is a serious charge against Cruz that has been substantiated and adds to his reputation as a really nasty guy willing to not just lie but stoop to any kind of dirty tricks to get his way.

Listen to Carson being interviewed by the people at Fox and Friends about what happened.

Ted Cruz had better watch out. We know that you don’t want to get Carson mad. Cruz had better make sure that his belt buckle is in place the next time he meets Carson in person.

    @3 Well they’re very honest anyways. They’re out for blood and death and never claimed otherwise.

    @ ^ Reginald Selkirk : Nixon had a lot more class and honour and was a much more decent person and less of a crook than Cruz.

    Cruz is a man who has become loathed by almost (?) everyone whose ever got to know him or had to work with him. His own party basically hates him -- and has done for a long time -- probably including Carson before this latest thing. (Were they ever on that good terms with each other?)

    So, a guy whose party hates him and who everyone who knows him well detests -- that guy is running for a gloriified popularity contest? I still don’t like Cruz’es chances even with his Iowa cork-arse win.

    Imagine that! Cruz and his people told lies about a political opponent. Who would have guessed such a fine upstanding Christian could do such a thing?

    Not much new here. Cruz is essentially the reincarnation of Richard Nixon raised by a Dominionist father to be a king to carry out a divine mission. If he has to do a little ratfucking to get the job done … all is excused when you are on a mission from God.

    To those not old enough to remember the first incarnation of Nixon. Also mentions how Carl Rove got started.

    Cruz has been anointed and given a mission to play a part as king that leads to Christian domination of the US. But God needs money:

    “The pastor [Huch] referred to Proverbs 13:22, a little while ago, which says that the wealth of the wicked is stored for the righteous. And it is through the kings, anointed to take dominion, that that transfer of wealth is going to occur.” -- Rafael Cruz, August 26, 2012

    From: http://www.alternet.org/speakeasy/brucewilson/ted-cruzs-father-suggested-his-son-anointed-bring-about-end-time-transfer

    And who do you suppose the wicked are whose wealth shall be taken from and who will it be given to? Simple:
    Matthew 25:29 (KJV) For unto every one that hath shall be given , and he shall have abundance : but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

    Which ties into the ‘prosperity gospel’ which says that God shows his love by showering those who please him with wealth.

    Evidently God like feudalism with its two class society of a relative few lords and lots and lots of serfs. The lords keep God happy and, if you know what’s good for you, you work hard to keep your lord and master happy. Of course, Muslims, atheists, and anyone else who doesn’t go along with the program, are screwed.
