I've read many conservative commenters defending Ted Cruz's Iowa shenanigans:
"Breaking news. The press is reporting that Dr. Ben Carson is taking time off from he campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week.
Please inform any Carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz."
Cruz subsequently issued an apology.
Did it effect the outcome of the Iowa Caucus? Doesn't matter...
If Candidate Cruz's campaign will lie to Iowa voters, President Cruz's administration will likely lie to the American public. I'm no fan of Carson and whatever chance Cruz had of eliciting my support was dead after this. I have become sickened by the Republican Party and its candidates...
JUST SAY NO TO THUGS
