After spending years falsely claiming that President Obama was born abroad — mostly likely in Kenya — and is therefore ineligible to serve as president, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah today endorsed Ted Cruz for president.
Cruz, unlike Obama, was actually born abroad, and his Canadian birth has become an issue in the campaign thanks to Farah’s fellow birther, Donald Trump.
But apparently this inconvenient fact doesn’t seem to bother Farah, who in his endorsement didn’t even try to explain why he’s backing someone who doesn’t meet his eligibility criteria — despite obsessing over Obama’s imagined birth outside of the U.S.
That’s why it’s time for Republicans to stop eating their own. To win in November will require unity among the top vote-getters and a healing of the bad feelings of record numbers of GOP voters who turned out in what is the equivalent of a grass-roots rebellion against establishment, business-as-usual politics.
I am preparing myself for what appears to be inevitable – nominee Trump or nominee Cruz. Who is my preference?
I think Ted Cruz’s history demonstrates he has the clearest, most Reaganesque vision of where the country needs to go in its much-needed recovery from eight years of Barack Obama. Cruz is principled, sophisticated and a solid conservative whose understanding of and commitment to the Constitution is unshakeable.
At a time when one of the three branches of the federal government, the Supreme Court, hangs in the balance, it is Ted Cruz who, without question, can be counted upon to nominate justices who will uphold the high standards of Antonin Scalia and the originalists.
Ted Cruz is the real deal. That’s not to slight Donald Trump, who has played an invaluable role in this campaign – breaking the back of political correctness, presenting a positive vision forward for America and standing up to those who would prefer to see the nation borderless and rudderless.
If Trump turns out to be the winner of the GOP nomination, I will unhesitatingly support him.
But it’s time to choose – between two.
For me the choice is clear – Ted Cruz.
America, as we have known it, simply can’t survive another corrupt and lawless White House – not four years and certainly not eight years. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who have far more common ground than differences, need to start the healing process in the best interests of the country.
