It is a certain fact that Ted Cruz engaged in dirty tricks in Iowa. You can start with the “voter violation” letter before the weekend, and then what happened to Dr. BenCarson on Monday night became a monster on it’s own.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump, a couple of weeks ago, took to facebook today to call out Cruz for his campaign tactics. Let me also say she is very much entitled to support and defend anyone she wants to.
Palin is getting battered and ripped for putting out this statement in defense of Donald Trump, but many voters across America are not happy about Cruz’s tactics.
From Palin’s Facebook Page:
Thank heavens Donald Trump opened so many eyes to the lies, corruption and total lack of accountability that come so naturally to the permanent political class. And Sen. Ted Cruz was spot on when he once noted that “millions of Americans are asking for accountability and truth.” Which is why it’s so curious – and saddens us – this lack of accountability with the lies of Cruz’s own campaign.
Cruz’s campaign chairman, U.S. Representative Steve King, is lying, and good for Dr. Ben Carson for calling this out. King, who’s previously asked for and received my endorsement, time and resources to support his own election, is still lying about my altruistic support of Mr. Trump, and he’s refused to provide any evidence to the contrary. And, this U.S. Congressman actually lied to his own constituents on behalf of Cruz, regarding a good man, Dr. Carson. He told voters Carson was dropping out of the Presidential race immediately before the Iowa caucus, causing a relative uproar inside the process, so the word would spread and he could rack up more votes for his candidate, Cruz. That’s a dirty trick. Dr. Carson deserved better. The voters deserved better!
Where is the accountability for these political actions? Very sad; typical Washington tactics. THIS is why “the status quo has got to go.”
Our friend Dr. Carson put it so well:
“As Christians, of course we accept people’s apologies, we also have to ask ourselves is this acceptable to us, the American people, or should there be some accountability? There should be some consequences for things. You don’t just say ‘oh, okay, sorry… okay let’s move on.’ The damage was done to me, it wasn’t done to them.”
We’ve had eight years of a reckless President, accountable to no one, pushing this country to the brink. Why would we ever take a risk repeating that? We are never going to turn this country around if we keep electing “more of the same.” Just like conservatives have been preaching in opposition to Obama’s political tactics for years: actions speak louder than words.
The Cruz Campaign’s actions to destroy a good man’s efforts to serve are no different than Obama’s practice of not holding anyone accountable. Typical politics. Typical politicians.

As I stated before, many Americans are not happy with Cruz’s tactics and I think it’s ok for Palin to speak her mind about this. Cruz has already doubled down as to his intentions of not firing anyone over what happened so the voters of New Hampshire will have to see him for who he is in reality.
What are your thoughts about Palin’s statement?
