Ted Cruz explained Donald Trump’s big win last night by pointing out that New Hampshire is a great state for a liberal Republican like Donald Trump. He goes on to highlight his liberal record on the issues, like being very pro choice, supporting Tarp and the Stimulus, and spent quite a bit of time explaining Trump’s record on socialized medicine.
Watch (I’ve cued it to 2:50):
This is what Cruz is going to hammer in South Carolina and I think he’s right, that it’s absolutely a winning strategy. No need to sling mud. Just explain where The Donald has been on the issues, especially socialized medicine.
I can’t show this enough. Just watch the first minute or so:
Everybody must be covered. And who is going to pay for it? The government.
And he admits that’s a very un-Republican thing for him to say. But he believes it so strongly that he’s willing to lose votes over it.
We also hopes he loses votes over it.
