CRUZ, THE MAN OF THE FU­TURE?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Some re­main un­con­vinced about the afore­men­tioned Gov. Chris Christie, and in no un­cer­tain terms.

“Christie is a use­ful idiot for the Democrats — a needy, po­lit­i­cally cor­rect, rul­ing-class Repub­li­can who is trend­ing lib­eral on ev­ery­thing from cli­mate change to gay mar­riage to size-of-gov­ern­ment is­sues. Christie loves the lib­eral lime­light, a trait that will only in­ten­sify over time.The Democrats know a Tro­jan Horse when they see one,” says Ge­orge Neu­mayr, a con­tribut­ing ed­i­tor to The Amer­i­can Spec­ta­tor. He lauds Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in­stead. “The fu­ture of the GOP is not Christie but Cruz. Have the Repub­li­cans learned noth­ing from Rom­ney’s loss, McCain’s loss, Dole’s loss? The les­son is sim­ple: do not run mod­er­ates. That just hands vic­tory to the Dems from the start,” Mr. Neu­mayr says.
