Yesterday was a big day for the Cruz campaign with the announcement of Carly Fiorina as Cruz's vice presidential running mate should he win the nomination. Was it a move of desperation as some have suggested? The short answer is "yes." And I think you'll agree.
Let me go back in history. If you remember in 2000, everybody was saying George W. Bush was a kid and questioning his experience. If you remember, he came out and named his whole cabinet. I would suggest Ted Cruz do the same thing. (In fact, I don't think Ted went far enough yesterday with only announcing Carly as his VP, but that's a discussion for another day.)
Was it a desperate move? Well, I would say "yes." Because Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina are desperate to save the Constitution. And so am I.
They are desperate to save the economy. Desperate to create jobs. And so am I.
They are desperate to stop the crucifixion of Christians by ISIS. And so am I.
I think you are, too.
I think you're desperate on all of those things. I think you're desperate to make sure that your children have a brighter future than they do today. And you've lost hope on that. And so have I.
They are desperate to make sure that is reversed.
They are desperate to make sure that our children are not slaves to debt, that we're not a slave to China.
I think Carly and Cruz --- and me and, I think, you --- are desperate to make sure that China and Russia are not leaders of the world. They are desperate to make sure that we don't lose our biggest ally, England, to Muslim extremists. That the engine of Europe --- Germany --- isn't lost to fascism, be that Muslim fascism or the fascism of the last century in Germany.
They are desperate. Indeed, they are. They are desperate to make sure that our children aren't spied on and listened to. They are desperate to make sure that the IRS isn't used as a weapon anymore.
And if you're not desperate, then you're not in the real world. If you're not desperate, then they have no chance of winning.
But if you believe this is our last call, if you believe we are in deep trouble, you're damn right you're desperate. You should be desperate.
