VP Nomination Not Up To Cruz At Contested Convention

Share
Ted Cruz

Nominating Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick was supposed to signal an upward trajectory for Ted Cruz’s flailing presidential campaign, though to most it seemed little more than a last ditch effort to stop Trump from securing the party nomination in Indiana, and later in California, where Fiorina was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010.

During a contested convention, delegates are unbound when choosing the vice president, effectively nullifying the Texas senator’s announcement. “All 2,472 delegates are unbound when it comes to nominating a VP — meaning they can vote for whomever they want — and it’s not tied to the presidential pick, so even if Cruz and Fiorina want to run together, one of them could end up on the ticket, leaving the other one behind,” noted Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson.

That is a huge difference from the way the presidential nominee is picked, in which most delegates are bound on the first ballot but are then free to vote with their conscience in subsequent ballots.

It’s been a bad week for the Cruz campaign. After Cruz won a total of three delegates in Tuesday’s primaries, one-time colluder — to use Donald Trump’s description — John Kasich disavowed any coordination between the two campaigns Thursday, despite similar announcements from both camps that such an agreement had been reached.

    OK, look, I had a talk with Lucifer a while ago, and to be honest, he’s feeling really miffed about this comparing him to Cruz. He said “Look, I’m evil, after all, that’s my job, but at least I’ve got some standards here, got it? No way am I THAT low. So let them know up there that is really uncalled for. And Boehner’s in for a world of hurtin’ when he gets here next month.”.

    He told me that the closest Cruz gets to any of his guys is Beelzebub, who he never liked much anyway, because he was such a sneaky devil that none of the other devils could trust at all.

    So the word from down below is that Lucifer would really appreciate if you’d refer to Cruz as ‘Beelzebub’ from now on, though he also said that just ‘Bubba’ would work, too. (apparently, Beelzebub really hates that name, so go ahead with it . . .)

      This current campaign season has been really maligning the under world in ways it has never had to deal with. And if lucifer hadn’t had a bad day he wouldn’t have thrown bubba under the bus either.

    OMG!!! Ted Cruz is finished!

    HE of all people should have known this rule!

    This is an illustrious example of the wisdom of the biblical proverb “pride goes before a great fall!”

    The “self-righteous” high principled (?) Ted Cruz so believes in himself that he can’t see his undoing unfolding on the stage of a disaster that is his failed campaign

    I can’t think of a more deserving person to suffer what appears to be a pending humiliation!

    When this is over how is he going to campaign for re-election for his TX senate seat?

    I watched Cruz and Fiorina on Sean Hannity last night, oh! boy, these two amigos don’t know what words mustn’t be used during any competition. I heard Fiorina using the word “when” Cruz is the president…….. I heard this Word for the first time those times of John Kerry and the Edwards. They used this word a lot and nothing never materialised. I also heard this word recently from Rubio, and we know now where he is. You never use the word “when” while you are competing. If you are sure you will reach there, why compete at the first place? I washed my hands yesterday and knew these two (Cruz & Fiorina) will never see the lights of the White House.

    Here are two things that Fiorina said about her new hero:
    “One of the most powerful of these criticisms came in the wake of the government shutdown in 2013. Fiorina said of the incident,
    ‘Everybody could see this train wreck coming. I actually feel badly for John Boehner. I think this is Ted Cruz and President Obama’s shutdown… …there’s no honor in charging a hill that you know you can’t take, only casualties, although Ted Cruz maybe got name recognition and money along the way.’

    Bonus flashback: Carly on Cruz “Ted Cruz is just like any other politician. He says one thing in Manhattan, he says another thing in Iowa,” Fiorina said on CNN back in January. “He says whatever he needs to say to get elected, and then he’s going to do as he pleases.” (Jan. 3, 2016)
