Only on the birther issue, Cruz won.

But on the NY question, he got destroyed by Trump. He was so blown the fuck out he had to applaud him to control the damage. Reminder that NY primary is worth 29 points, while Iowa is just worth 6 points.

And then he got RAPED, BLOWN THE FUCK OUT, and even *BOOED* when Rubio proved he was a political hack.

He did well but It will not propel him any further, he's still at a dead heat with Cruz and Carson eating up his potential supporters. He didn't manage to take down Trump, he came close, but he didn't go for the throat when he should have and allowed Trump to regain his footing and shrug it off.

He dominated everyone but Trump. He's impressive but you have to understand the consequences of that 10 minute talk about his Canadian birth did. While he held his own that he might be able to win in court to be president, Trump planted the seeds of doubt that the democrats will sue (which they willthe if) and tie him up in court for 2 years. There's also the fact that a lot of Cruz supporters aren't even aware that he was born in Canada. 10 minutes is a long time to talk about an issue and there were millions of Americans watching who turned to their friends and family and said "Cruz was born in Canada?"

He's tainted goods now. Even if Cruz won the exchange, just bringing up the issue alone is enough to hurt him in the long run.

I think Ted and Trump planned this shit about New-Yoork before the debate in some private exchange. I think Cruz told to Trump that he will set himself up for an easy attack to let his numbers go down but in exchange Trump guaranteed him the vice.

This is true, but you have to admit that Cruz is starting to get more aggressive, and is actually able to make a stand for himself against Trump. I'd certainly be interested to see what happens come next debates.

I could defiantly see the left bringing up some bullshit lawsuit, so in that regard I agree with that assumption.

You might think the roaring response to MUH 9/11 is illogical, but it's not like Cruz's attack was grounded on logic. He was painting an us guys vs them guys scenario, and Trump makes everyone level Americans and wipes this divide by invoking the 9/11 relief efforts.

What damage? Trump gave a beautiful response to Cruz's divisiveness that everybody is praising today. Cruzbots need to get out of their little Christian Glenn Beck bubble.

Cruz, as a foreigner to this country, made the mistake of thinking we as Americans hate all New Yorkers as a matter of course. But that's not and never has been true. All Cruz did was cement himself further as "the foreigner" and "the other" that doesn't get this country.
>>
>>61077557
You're kidding right? At best, Cruz pulled a draw over the natural born citizen thing, Trump's concern is genuine that Cruz will have an issue, this has been talked about of the liberal side for months now.

As for the rest of the debate, Trump dropped a tactical nuke over the New York thing. It was so devastating of a counter that Cruz was cucked into clapping for Trump, and that's when trump went in for the kill; you could see the look of horror as Cruz realized he had been baited into a bad spot as soon as Trump mentioned 9/11.

So Cruz pulled a draw at best over the birther issue while being so baited and destroyed over the New York thing, that you notice Cruz avoided directly sparring with Trump for the rest of the debate. He literally rolled over onto his back, begging to be accepted for the VP slot.

Like everybody. Again, you guys are trapped in a little bubble with your foreign-born candidate and his handful of supporters. Just google Trump Cruz right now. Everybody is saying Trump wont hat exchange and that Cruz looked out of touch. And why wouldn't he be? I will keep saying it: He is not one of us.

Last night can only hurt Cruz. It taught millions of viewers that Ted Cruz was not born in America, a fact many still don't even know, and it showed that Cruz is divisive panderer looking to play on the prejudices of middle America without actually understanding middle America. We are far, far more wary of a Cuban-Canadian citizen than a fellow white American who just happens to be from NYC.

I don't even care anymore, to be honest. Last night was so decisive, I view Cruz as little more than Carson tier now. You guys will see soon enough.

Oh but don't you know? Cruzfags think that Obama's activist liberal judges that he has been appointing to the courts for 7 years are trustworthy and would never try to fuck over the Republicans, and the mainstream media isn't an arm of the Democrat Party and would never be unfair and unbalanced and report Cruz's ineligibility scandal on its front pages to fuck over his campaign.

This is what Cruz's cuckservative band actually believe. They've been reduced to implicitly defending Obama judges and the liberal media.

His wife is an executive at Goldman Sachs, a member of the Wall Street wing of the political establishment, and advocates for a North American Union. Cruz funded his Senate campaign with a loan from Goldman Sachs (while Heidi Cruz was an executive there). You don't think Ted will feel beholden to Goldman Sachs while in office? Why wouldn't he? Because he says so?

He also says he's a natural born citizen, but look how that's working out for him. He says a lot of things. But where there's smoke, there's fire. Trusting Ted Cruz is akin to trusting Goldman Sachs and the Council on Foreign Relations (establishment neoconservative think tank).

>>61078234 is absolutely correct, Trump is the winner of the birther issue because Trump portrayed it as a "can we afford to take a chance, I'm not saying I'd sue but the democrats would"
He planted a seed of doubt, shit like that sticks.

Then he completely destroyed him on the 9/11 question. People like you shill that Trump was Stumped after every single debate but in reality you have no idea what you're talking about, and this was in my opinion one of Trump's best nights ever.

Even the media didn't try to shill that other people won, at least not as bad as they usually do.

Cruz's attack was funny and had me cheering for a little bit towards the beginning but then I snapped back to reality when Trump spoke and realized this issue has already been resolved by Cruz and Trump before and it was nothing more than a repeat of the interviews

>Cruz:Talking about my citizenship is a waste of my time and everyone's

>Trump:No its not, The Democrats will attack you on that issue if you become my VP or become the nominee, get a declaratory statement from a judge just so its not a question for voters

Trump's answer is perfectly reasonable and I don't know why the crowd was so against it and him at that statement, he was basically just giving Cruz a tip to tighten up his weak spots.
>>
>>61076947
Trump said "I'm winning Iowa now", as cliche and tacky as "muh polls" are, Cruz had no response.

Trump got the upper hand in the birth debate because he was able to deflect all accusations to dems and lawyers. He pulled the "it's not me, it's the dems that'll pursue this". When Cruz said it "Oh it's just Harvard liberal lawyers", that proved Trump's point that it's the dems that'll go after him, making him a major risk as a candidate.

The New York thing was a major fuckup. Trump invoked "muh 9/11" perfectly, and named Buckley as a famous conservative scholar from NY.

Rubio called him out for flip-flopping too.

Cruz is bruised.

>>61077968
I've seen exactly one (1) use of 9/11 in a political context that wasn't tacky or abusing the memory of the dead for crass political purposes.

That one use was last night. Trump was 100% right to bring up 9/11.

That's a type of debate moment that, if it happened in a general election debate, would have lasting effects and be talked about for a long time by the press.

Trump, the man known as and described by the media as a blusterous blockhead, out of nowhere displays some of the kindest sincerity you'd ever see in a political setting.

Cruz 'won' the birther argument, but lost the war since we're still talking about it, AND everyone now knows he was born in Canada.

The entire birther thing was un-winnable, and Cruz's best bet was to just ignore it.

>>61086995
It's true; I've seen 9/11 used as a defense and a talking point for most of my entire life (born in 93 here) and it just became a dead horse that was beaten to a paste. But what Trump showed last night came off as some honest to god sincerity on the issue, you could tell Trump was there, not just watching it all on tv unfold but was on the ground or was at his office when it all went down. No one has a closer connection on that stage than Trump to NY, so anyone attacking NY has every right to be stumped by Trump with the 9/11 card.

So he's just another lazy spic then. That's the problem with him. He's being paid to vote in the Senate. That is literally his job.

Workaholic versus ambitious social climber too lazy to take two red-eye flights so he can do his job. Gee, I wonder who is the more American of these two.

If I was certain Trump would win anyways I would vote libertarian, I should say.

Same in the primary, if I am sure Trump will win; I will vote Rand Paul.
>>
>>61088498
A high profile presidential candidate (unlike the joke Rand has become) taking a single day off from his vanity campaign to do his job in Washington would have given more voice to the issue. It would have drew more attention to it.

Cruz is a terrible leader. I really don't see how people can't see that. True leaders look at moments like that as an opportunity, not an inconvenience. Does anyone have any doubts that Trump would have showed up to vote and turned it into a whole thing to benefit his campaign AND the country?

All Ted Cruz does is "lead" from behind. Over and over again. It's fucking disgusting.
>>
>>61088873
Rand is in a shitty spot, and the media certainly wont help him as they tried with Fiorina and Jeb.

If he is full blown Ron high energy, normies will think he is crazy, paranoid. If he is too "controlled", his base people accuse him of being a "sell out".
>>
>>61088336
I've had a lot of back-and-forth with other anons about this and my conclusion is this: Cruz made a good point but bungled the delivery. He should have made it about rural vs urban and not singled out NYC. It played into Trumps hands and Trump took full advantage of it.

While I don't consider >muh 9/11 a legitimate response, half of the population is below median intelligence.

and no, Cruz didn´t stump Trump, but he tried many times. But i guess, Trump can´t be stumped. Too bad he didn´t stump others this time, maybe he tries to go easy on them now, since they have to back him up at the end of the day.

An opportunity to vote on a bill that the media will ignore that WILL lose in a landslide, as the president he could simply not pass funding for the fed.

So

>become president
>never sign funding bills for the fed

or
>waste time and vote for losing bill
>be completely ignored and lose campaign time to win presidency

>>61089050
Rural vs urban would not has specifically helped him like NYC

NYC has a long history of fucking over NY and electing dipshit mayors and governors.

Cruz pointed out that Trump was for a long time one of those new yorkers destroying NY

If anything comes of last nights squabble it will be

>libshits in NYC that were voting left anyways vote left
>cruz gains support from the rest of the country and upstate NY

Or

>libshits NYCers that would have voted left may see Trump in a better light for defending NYC
>Country sees Cruz in a positive light for attacking NYC libs

Trump won the Natural born discussion hands down.

Not only was he FACTUALLY RIGHT, but the fact that Cruz just brushes all criticisms aside, pretending that he knows the constitution better than Professors of Constitutional and Common Law is just disturbing. Does he not take the constitution seriously?

And why would anyone vote for a candidate they know will cause so much controversy and legal issues in the future?

It will be a wasted vote, which is why Trump surpassed Cruz in the last 3 consecutive Iowa polls.

No, a true leader would have MADE the media take notice. Like Trump does on a daily fucking basis. Cruz doesn't understand a thing about that. He's not a true leader by any stretch of the definition of the word. He's a life-long government bureaucrat who has spent his entire career as part of the Washington machine and doesn't know how to lead and make people stand up and take notice.

You're delusional. Cruz has none of the cross-over appeal that Trump has. Trump already has 20% Democrat cross-over, and he hasn't even started trying to appeal to them in a general election yet.

Meanwhile, Cruz suffers from (a) relative obscurity, (b) being a Canadian and not an American, (c) coming off to most people as creepy, phony, and unlikable, and (d) another entry in a long line of Evangelical conservatives that a majority of the country simply does not want to see in the White House.

Add to that the fact that he has shown no media savvy whatsoever and has no apparent ability to control the national discourse like Trump can and does, and the media will just buttfuck him the entire way.
>>
>>61092135
Dude. Ignore it. I'm an optimist so I assume it's just shitposting, but many of the Trumpfags are delusional enough to to believe all opposition are GOP shills (even Cruz, or Carson supporters).

They will never admit that, as usual, Trump did relatively poorly compared to Rubio or Cruz (even Christie had a stronger performance).

Just ignore the shitposters.

He changed his stance on all kind of topics many fucking times.
You won´t even know what kind of a president u elect, if it is him.
Also, the democrats will destroy him, by showing, that he likes to take breaks on his job and other shit, that makes him look like an unresponsible person.

I'm not saying he is better at any of those things, I'm saying he would be a superior president, trump is likeable but he 9s a hack, he says what the people want to hear.

Trump has changed his mind over the years as much as you would expect a private citizen and businessman to do. He doesn't immerse himself in politics like Cruz, who gets paid to do that. He spent his life working a real, meaningful job, unlike Cruz, the life-long government bureaucrat.

If you're going to hold Trump to politician standards, let's hold Cruz to private businessman standards. Why hasn't Cruz achieved massive private industry success like Trump has? Just a lazy spic, I guess.

Trump has done more for the Republican Party than Cruz ever has. He's donated thousands, if not millions, to GOP candidates over the years. He has endorsed Republican candidates (and as you now know, his endorsements matter because people like Trump).

Here's Trump at the 1988 Republican Convention, being introduced as a conservative, endorsing George Bush for President:

Where was Cruz at this time? Probably Canada.

M8, I don't even support the guy and I know a lot of establishment GOPers hate Cruz because of all the government shutdown shit he spearheaded that ended up with no results except headaches for both parties
>>
>>61092874
Except that Trump has interjected himself and his opinions every single election cycle since ~1980, and has really ramped it up since 2004. You can't pretend that he hasn't been playing the political game when he has been a significant donor to Democrats (as well as Republicans) and has openly held socially liberal beliefs.

By that logic, lobbyists are equally detached from the political system.

>And you will say that Trump hasn't, right?

Whenever they asked him about points he made and if he might wanna rethink them, he always stated a clear "NO!", no matter if the audiance was booooing or not. He didn´t give a shit, he stayed true to himself, unlike Cruz.

Since Trump runs for president, he didn´t do any flipflops. You can´t compare the buisnessman Trump with the candidate Trump, because they had diffrent goals.

Cruz is the GOP establishment. For fuck's sake, with this meme. He was a Bush Administration official. His wife is an executive at Goldman Sachs and a member of the CFR. Cruz has taken money from Club for Growth, the Chamber of Commerce, and other establishment donors. He's establishment as fuck. He just exploited the Tea Party movement to get elected. And now he's doing it some more.

I'm not saying he hasn't done those things. I am saying that holding him to the arbitrary political standard of "you can't ever flip flop!" is not reasonable when he doesn't come from that world and hasn't been trained to police his own thoughts like career politicians like Cruz do.

And besides, is insanity for Cruzbots to take the flip flop approach to Trump when Cruz has flipped flop almost a dozen times in the past YEAR.
