Trump Calls Cruz 'Dishonest' And 'A Liar'
February 12, 2016

Donald Trump has been tweeting up a storm because of his anger at Ted Cruz for remarks he made at the Carolina Values Summit Thursday, in which he said Trump and Roboto sided with President Obama on gay marriage.

Speaking at the Carolina Values Summit at Winthrop University, the Texas senator said that the "lawless" decision by the Supreme Court to legalize gay marriage nationwide was "judicial activism." And he indicated that Rubio and Trump, whom he did not identify by name but as his top two challengers, were flimsy in their opposition to gay marriage.Even though both oppose gay marriage, each said they would abide by the "law of the land" last year.

"Those are the talking points of Barack Obama," Cruz said.

The Supreme Court decision, he added, "will not stand."

Trump's twitter feed would not stand for that comparison and called Cruz a dishonest liar.

He then followed up by attacking Ted's Christian values.

As I've written many times, keeping the conservative movement angry is the goal of every AM talk radio show, evangelical preacher and conservative politician because it makes them a lot of money. Fanning the flames of outrage over gay marriage is as easy to Cruz as putting on his shirt in the morning. And in conservative circles, comparing Trump to Obama is just as nasty as if Cruz called Trump a "pus*y"

Also on Thursday, the Washington Post reported that "robo-calls" were being used in South Carolina and were linked to Ted Cruz.

The ghost of Lee Atwater is alive and well in South Carolina Republican politics.
