Rubio camp accuses Cruz of 'dirty tricks' over Hawaii 'dropout' email | Fox News

Seriously? TWICE? If I read this right he did the same thing to Trump.

Cruz gives me the creeps. He's a PRAISE JEEESUUUS guy when he's in the southern Bible Belt and the bible belters swallow it hook line and sinker. Then he turns around and does this ****. He has a serious credibility problem and I think this will hurt him. GOP voters are not as gullible as Hillary supporters. Hell, Hillary is the spawn of Satan and she's winning.

I think you might be right. I need to do the math. It might make more sense to make Rubio quit. Those votes will go mostly to Cruz.

Who opens political emails? Ever hear of Spam button? And if you did receive Cruz emails, would you be voting for Rubio anyway?

I think he should quit tomorrow but who knows, the establishment maybe rather wanna deal with Trump than Cruz.

It's seems to me Trump's only agenda is gonna be to decrease taxes on the rich and eliminate Obamacare. Trump speaks vaguely to confuse the masses who are poor and desperate and only hear what they want to hear. Jobs, jobs! But has Trump really told them how those jobs are gonna be created? No he hasn't. He speaks their simple language but his interests are different. Trump will make them believe he will help the average American. However when you look at his plans in his website, all he is promising is far right legislation: low taxes/no taxes and reducing social programs like Obamacare. How are gonna make up for the lost tax revenue? I have no idea. My guess is that Trump and Icahn Don't care if our debt doubles.

Quote:
Icahn weeps for the incomprehensible suffering of a small tribe of Americans, namely: the CEOs of several US-based, multinational corporations.

Huh? Yes, he wails that poor superrich chieftains of such profiteering giants as Pfizer pharmaceuticals are having to move their corporate domains abroad, having been driven out of the USA by "our uncompetitive tax code." These American-raised corporations have been raking in enormous profits on foreign sales, but the CEOs have whined that those profits should be exempt from US taxation, since they're taxed by the countries where the products are sold.

In fact, however, their "double taxation" claim is a fraud, for most of the $2.6 trillion in profits they're hiding have been stashed in offshore tax havens that assess as little as zero taxes. These rank corporate tax dodgers are starving America's essential public services of some $600 billion they owe in taxes, yet Icahn sobs in print that they are victims! If these trillions are brought back home, he explains, they'll be taxed – so, don't you see, this "forces" CEOs to desert the US, moving their corporate citizenship to a place that doesn't make them pay for public services.

Icahn insists that America must let the CEOs "repatriate" their foreign bounty by essentially forgiving the taxes they owe on it. That way, the corporations get the money, and America gets to keep the corporations.

Insulting supporters of candidate, simply means that you lack argument based on logic or fact.

He did the same thing in Iowa. That is why Trum calls him lying Ted.

When Rubio drops out and stumps for Trump, I wonder how the GOP will feel about it, when they thought Rubio supporters will go to Cruz

He has no choice but to drop out but until he makes an official announcement what Cruz did was completely wrong and unethical. For Christ's sake, he's acting like Obama! Well, not nearly as bad. I mean, obama lied his ass off about gay marriage, loving America, health care. Wow, now that I really think about it the list of Obama lies and deceit is to long to list here. I guess Cruz is nothing near as bad as Obama.

I however digress..

The one thing that has hurt the Cruz campaign the most was the rumor that he does not run a clean campaign. Starting the rumor about dirty campaign tactics in Hawaii was the smartest thing the Rubio campaign could have done and it will pay off next week in Florida. It will be a two man race between Rubio and Trump at that point.
