Cruz and Rubio shine at CNN Town Hall
Two remarkably impressive candidates (and Ben Carson, who’s whatever) made dazzling impressions Wednesday night at CNN’s town hall. Meanwhile, Donald Trump rode in his clown car for an hour on MSNBC.Trump appears to be giving Cruz more ammunition to use against him in future ads about Obamacare. I thought Cruz really connected with the audience and that CNN did a fair job of moderating the questions.
Marco Rubio staged a master class on reformist conservative policy in one of the most substantive presentations on American politics ever broadcast on television.
For his part, Ted Cruz eloquently staked his claim to the mantle of anti-Establishment conservative confrontationalism and hammered home his arguments against Rubio’s supposed prevarications on immigration and Donald Trump’s ludicrous lawsuit against him for running an attack ad.
Meanwhile, sitting with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, Trump blathered incoherent solipsistic nonsense and even admitted (at a confused moment) that he supported the retention of ObamaCare.
