Glenn Beck to appear with Cruz as he swats at Trump

Image

Conservative media personality Glenn Beck will make appearances with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Saturday in Iowa, ABC News reported late Tuesday.

The news came shortly after Beck took to Facebook on Tuesday to attack Cruz's rival Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee who endorsed Trump the same day.

"Small Government, lower taxes, fewer regulations and the constitution? Not any more," Beck wrote.

"Big government, bailouts, executive orders, not just abortion but partial birth abortion, nationalizing of banks, stimulus, pathway to citizenship."

He said all of these views were held by Trump during the Obama administration and asked what caused Trump to change his views so much.

Beck also accused Trump of giving money to prominent Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel after "Sarah and the tea party won a hard fought election and were under attack.

"I couldn't disagree with her more but she has played the game now for years," he wrote. "Perhaps she knows more than those of us still on the outside."

Beck, a longtime opponent of Trump, said last week that it will be a "gigantic mistake if this country chooses Donald Trump" as its next president.

As president, Trump would be a "monster much, much worse" than President Obama, Beck added at the time.

Cruz and Trump are battling for first place in polls in Iowa, which are less than two weeks away.

In an interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly last week, Beck said that ”Cruz is my guy."

"Ted Cruz is a guy who says I'm for these principles, exactly like Ronald Reagan was, these are the principles and I'm going to be tethered and tied to these," Beck said.

He added that if Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) wins the GOP presidential nomination, he'd vote for him, but he has "real deep problems with Rubio."

Andrea Mitchell: Could you support Ted Cruz, if he ends up with the nomination?

Another Day, Another Dirty Trick for Cruz

David Fitzsimmons
Image

Once again, Ted Cruz is under attack for his campaign's tactics. On Sunday, his team posted a video showing a brief encounter between Marco Rubio and a Cruz staffer carrying a Bible. The subtitles to the video provided by the Cruz campaign made it appear as if Rubio looked at the Bible and said it contained, "not many answers." In fact—and the video isn't terribly ambiguous—Rubio said it contained "all the answers." So, for those keeping score at home, that's Cruz's campaign lying about Rubio's Christianity to make the point that Cruz is a better Christian. Perhaps they missed that commandment about bearing false witness. If only it was second on the list of ten instead of ninth.

Once the deception was revealed, Cruz apologized, explained that it is his staff who is dishonest and not him, and fired his communications director. It is remarkable how closely Cruz is hewing to the Nixon playbook; today's incident brings to mind November 17, 1973, when the 38th president declared that he was not a crook, but acknowledged that he had failed to supervise his staff closely enough, and that he would therefore be firing several of them. Not to give anything away in case anyone happens to be reading All the President's Men at the moment, but it turns out that, in fact, he was a crook.

Denials and deflections aside, it looks more and more every day like the same is true of Cruz. Indeed, Vanity Fair has a rundown of the underhanded stunts that the Texas Senator's campaign has pulled in just the last week. They include:

    Photoshopping an image of Rubio and Barack Obama shaking hands
    A false robocall (in Spanish) suggesting that Rubio supports amnesty for undocumented immigrants
    Another robocall exaggerating Donald Trump's opposition to the Confederate battle flag
    Yet another robocall falsely portraying Donald Trump as a militant on LGBT equality
    A fake Facebook page for Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) renouncing Rubio and endorsing Cruz
    An ad implying Rubio was responsible for the San Bernardino shootings
    Threatening to sue a South Carolina television station for airing a "defamatory" anti-Cruz ad
    Pretending to be fluent in Spanish at the GOP debate
