Ted Cruz pulls ad that featured former porn actress, but what is the bigger message?

Today Ted Cruz pulled one of his political ads. The ad featured a former porn star. The key word is former, but what this proves is your past can come back and sabotage your future. In this age of social media it is actually a cautionary tale. We see so many people who are selfie obsessed. They are determined to document every thing. We see people post on Instagram wearing little or nothing. It’s all in fun until you lose a major opportunity. Just ask the actress in the Cruz commercial.


Donald Trump calls Ted Cruz a “Pussy”…is this man fit to be the president?

Is this guy worthy of the Oval Office? Is this kind of vulgarity appropriate for the campaign trail? Share your thoughts.

Have we become a nation of sore losers?

Last week I watched an episode of Bring It on Lifetime. It is a show highlighting cheer/dance competition. The competition is fierce and every episode features a competition and a 1st and 2nd place team is crowned. The other week a team won the 2nd place trophy but the leader could not accept it. She told her girls they were winners and she would not accept the second place trophy. She hurled the trophy across the room and it shattered. I remember saying out loud “what are we teaching our children?” Ted Cruz won Monday night and seemingly that was accepted as fact that night, but today 2 days later he is accused of cheating by Mr. Second Place, Donald Trump. Sure Dr. Ben Carson has accused the Cruz campaign of playing a little fast and loose with the truth, and they have apologized for that, but Carson is not questioning the legitimacy of the process. There are winners and losers in any competition and people need to not only learn to be a good winner but also a good loser.

Donald Trump comes in 2nd in Iowa or as he would say the 1st Loser

Morning Joe should be officially renamed the Donald Trump fan club. Over the past few months they have given Trump unfettered access to their audience. He rarely appeared in their space but he was a frequent telephone guest. When he was not there they lathered him with verbal praise, but despite their best efforts he came in 2nd in Iowa last night, but the praise just keeps on coming. Ted Cruz’ victory is not their big story no Trump’s strong showing and his gracious concession speech is their hot news. Cruz has never been a favorite of mine but it was good to see him knock the crown off the head of the media-anointed king. Trump had the swagger of a winner and all the verbosity to go with it. He was so confident that he was destined to win he felt skipping a debate was a good idea. He was playing by his own rules. He called out Sarah Palin and he knew her presence on the stage would make a difference. He went to Liberty University to tell the one about the 2 Corinthians. As he often said the Evangelicals loved him. It was interesting seeing him last night when he appeared on stage he looked like a mere mortal. Maybe Trump might need to look at Proverbs 16:18-“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, the Dynamic Duo, what’s not to like?

We have John McCain to thank for bringing Sarah Palin to the national stage. The same McCain that Donald Trump said is not a war hero. So now McCain’s protege has come out and literally given Donald Trump a grizzly bear hug. Palin is the godmother of the anger movement and Trump is the beneficiary of her prep efforts. They have tapped into the anger and they plan on riding this current of discontentment to the GOP convention. It’s a celebration of negativity. Let the games begin.

Donald Trump questions Ted Cruz’ citizenship?

This is what Donald Trump said about Ted Cruz, “Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump said when asked about the topic. “It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.” So birther Trump is back on the stump. The president is no longer his target Cruz his closes contender is in his cross hairs. Wonder how this will turn out? Share your thoughts.

Ted Cruz’ daughters are off limits, but he needs to keep them off commercials

When I heard the Washington Post had published a cartoon depicting Ted Cruz; daughters as monkeys I thought it was completely out of line, and then I saw the commercial. Politicians should not use their children to deliver political barbs towards their opponents. Don’t put your children in the line of fire.

Where is the perfect presidential candidate?

2016 presidential contenders include: an egomaniac, a socialist, a liar, a man who can’t keep his campaign money separated from his personal money, a failed Fortune 500 executive, a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who never learned to fight, a man who overcame the hood to perform amazing surgery, a man who can’t get along with his colleagues, a man who has a problem saying no to donuts, a man who stands proudly with lawbreakers and a man that is a military hawk. All of these people want sit in the oval office and none of them are perfect. We have that in common with them, but even if you disagree with them they are doing something. They have an idea and a commitment to this country. So as we sit on our couches with our popcorn waiting on the next shoe to drop give them a little credit for at least being willing to try.
