That's just a tiny sampling of an ongoing meme until now. And what has changed to arrest and reverse this media attack? Simply the Establishment's candidates especially Jeb Bush and their latest hope Marco Rubio are either dead in the water of stalled at a ceiling level of support.
What to do? The obvious plan is to prop up someone from the supposed conservative side of the ledger to knock back Trump and then utterly destroy them as an opponent for Hillary. They tried that with a succession of props, firstly Fiorina who went nowhere, then Kasich and Walker, both disasters, and then in utter desperation they rallied behind Ben Carson who for a while seemed to be a genuine threat to Trump.
The media have even started running a few "Christie surges' articles but in reality that is a heavy lifting plan which is even to much for the media whose heart is clearly not in it. So, at this stage there is only Senator Cruz left.
That the media and GOP Establishment would have to swallow all their previous attacks on someone they dismissed ass utterly hated with no chance whatsoever to be the nominee matters not one jot. In their arrogance and desperation they will continue to believe they can blatantly treat the public like fools and they will, and have, change horses (for the 6th time) in mid-stream without the slightest embarrassment.
The plan is to so prop up Cruz that he wins Iowa and, as they see it, take the wind out of Trump's sails for at least that state. That this would alter their long-standing meme that winning Iowa is a death sentence again matters not one jot. If they can keep up the "Trump slides" meme until New Hampshire and hope if gives Cruz or Christie a chance there they will do so with every possible means at their disposal.
It's all so blatantly obvious and childish actually. That the media thinks the public will believe that Cruz has been magically transformed from most hated to beloved in a couple of months is the height of arrogance. The one positive from this scandalous behavior is that it, once again, highlights just how in the tank for the Beltway the media is and their utter leftist arrogance.
her is a sampling of the Cruz love from the last few days.
