True, Rick Tyler is a smug, over-confident, nasty, no holds-barred communications adviser (now, at least for the moment … former adviser), in my opinion. But, was he really a scapegoat, taking the fall, so that Cruz can try to save his campaign under the guise (again, in my opinion) of being a Conservative Christian?
I believe that Cruz allowed all of the dirty tricks … the voter violation letter, the communication that Carson had left the race, the phony robo calls stating that Marco had left, even some that were claiming to be from Marco, in Spanish, the ad with Marco shaking hands with Obama, and now the video with the edited audio showing Rubio disrespecting the bible. And these are the tricks the American people know about.
Was Rick (eager to do whatever to win) set up to do as much damage as possible before getting caught … and then used as collateral damage, in Cruz’s “clean up” spin.
Or … are we really seeing the real Cruz coming out, little by little … and is this a glimpse of why people, working closely with him in Washington D.C., don’t like him?
It seems to me that the firing of Rick Tyler today was not the end of the shady and underhand tricks by Cruz and his campaign staffers … but, the beginning of the crack inside the campaign culture of Ted Cruz … that is beginning to make him look more like Burt Lancaster in the old 1960’s movie, Elmer Gantry. (Great movie if you haven’t seen it)
