Greta Van Susteren went off on the Cruz Campaign tonight over their handling of the Ben Carson Caucus scandal.
Carson was right to be outraged…
The Cruz camp sent out messages and made calls to all precinct captains that Dr. Carson was dropping from the race.
On Thursday Greta Van Susteren reacted to the Cruz campaign scandal.
Greta Van Susteren: Horrible!… This is appalling!
For some reason to me, what happened that night was terrible. But then when they have time for reflection they make it even worse with this statement tonight. It’s just appalling.
Karl Rove: They’re circling the wagons. They know they made a big error. They’re trying to change the subject and they’re circling the wagons.
Maybe Greta and Fox News should get their facts straight. And by the way, when’s the last time you saw “FAIR and BALANCED” on Fox News?
Greta…if I may…
Ted Cruz’s statement:
“Last night when our political team saw the CNN post saying Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated the grassroots leaders just as we would with any breaking news story. That’s fair game,” Cruz said in a statement. “What the team should have done is send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out. That was a mistake from our end, and for that I apologize to Dr. Carson.”
What a class act…Ted Cruz!
The FACT is Greta…the campaign messages from the Cruz campaign to the activists were sent AFTER the Carson campaign had already clarified that Carson was NOT dropping out.
I really doubt the messages affected the final results, especially since Carson was in single digits – 9.3% and Cruz set an historical record for the most votes for a Republican candidate in caucus with 27.6%.
Much kudos of course to Jeff Roe, Bryan English, the Iowa Leadership Team and the Iowa Camp Cruz – grassroots volunteers for Cruz from all over the nation.
When you have a great candidate the rest really comes easy!
Does anyone still listen to Karl Rove?
Hey Karl! The only wagons that are circling are the GOP Establishment wagons… and to that I say…Move em’ on. Head em’ up. Cut em’ out. Rawhide!
