I think Cruz would’ve been far more dangerous than Trump. In fact, it’s Cruz’ “political integrity” that’s frightening. Trump is a jumpy rabbit who likes to thump a lot. He deals with the moment but that’s about it. If something else is more suitable, he’ll change but only if it’s his “whim”.
Cruz won’t change on a whim. He’s calculating.
The good news about Trump is that he doesn’t understand politics. At all. He plays to the TV camera. He’s good at it.
But politics? No. He doesn’t know politics. This is good because everybody ELSE in Washington _DOES_ know politics.
This gives everybody else a huge advantage over Trump if he became President.
But man, he’ll be embarrassing.
