Ted Cruz is doing favorably in the polls, but the media and establishment Republicans can’t accept that. Instead they resort to attacking him through a New York Times piece that tries to label him as a hypocrite. Hillary Clinton is covering up for her email scandal and was responsible for the Benghazi failure, yet the media would rather focus on the non-criminal issues of Ted Cruz. ~ ML, 1/13/16This time, it's not Trump. The NYSlimes are already digging into the research opposition on Cruz, going back to his Senate run, tearing at the Iowa frontrunner before the final GOP debate. The latest non-issue distraction being lobbed by the left...
As Ted Cruz tells it, the story of how he financed his upstart campaign for the United States Senate four years ago is an endearing example of loyalty and shared sacrifice between a married couple.Umm, yes he did, ya LIARS! 'But, but, he still has to answer for x-y-z', whine the Praetorian Guard press, so...he does!
“Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.
But the couple’s decision to pump more than $1 million into Mr. Cruz’s successful Tea Party-darling Senate bid in Texas was made easier by a large loan from Goldman Sachs, where Mrs. Cruz works. That loan was not disclosed in campaign finance reports.
Hear that, Left? After explaining the details, Ted divulges that the information has been public and transparent for many years, and that's the end of that! Much more than I can say for your false messiah in the White House (or the pantsuit hopeful...speaking of).
Meanwhile, Hillary exonerates herself after a report of an expanded FBI investigation, and there's *crickets* from our Pravda...
MM: According to Fox News citing sources, the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and server has widened to include examinations of possible corruption between then-secretary Clinton and the family foundation.Now one might attempt to point out some kind of similarity in responses, that they're both making excuses. Au contraire. The difference here is that Cruz articulately answers the allegation with specificity and puts it to rest. Hillary, on the other hand, sweeps it under the rug and says there's nothing to see here! Interesting, and tellingly so, who the press seeks to keep attacking. But I'm not telling you anything new. #LibMediaBias
Hillary, apparently with a finger on the pulse of what the FBI is doing, said there’s nothing to it:
Clinton, the leading Democratic candidate for president, was asked about the Fox News story during a meeting Monday afternoon with the Des Moines Register’s editorial board. “It’s an unsourced, irresponsible claim that has no basis,” she responded. “It is something that is really without merit and should not have any influence whatsoever in this nominating process.”Nice of her to put an end to any speculation, wasn’t it?
Just in case there’s still skepticism, Hillary’s campaign should put out a statement to reassure everybody:

Ted Cruz's primary runoff against Dewhurst was July 31, 2012. He publicly disclosed the margin loan July 9, 2012. pic.twitter.com/8yyV4zxrV9— Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) January 14, 2016
RedState: There are two take aways from this story. The first is that the loan was disclosed during Cruz’s primary challenge to David Dewhurst. The fact that the loan was not carried forward on his general election documentation is not a deal of any type. The loan was not hidden and Rubin’s pantie wetting fit over hypocrisy is just as dumb as she is. The law can be complied with by filing an amended report which Cruz has indicated he will do. The second take away is “is this all ya got?” Really. You investigate a man’s financial disclosure and the best you can come up with to justify your labor is a loan that was disclosed on one report and not disclosed on a second report but was not improper in any other respect? And maybe there is a third. Just how good is the NYT when it misses stuff that is on the internet and can be found via a Google search? Or did it miss it?Levin chimed in this evening as well...
While the establishment doesn’t like Trump, they especially hate Ted Cruz because supports the Constitution and stands up to them. The left, who also is against Cruz, recently attacked him for not disclosing a loan to himself. The same NY Times that covers up for President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Americans should note that big banks and Wall Street bailouts are not the same as taking a loan out; it’s common sense.Related link: Establishment, Media, Trump Push 3 Attacks on Ted Cruz.
