Cruzism- New Yorkerism - birtherism

Texas Republican conservative and presidential candidate Ted "Cruz to loose" might be a study in "polictical multiple personality disorder". 

For  example, personality number one:
Cruz was a Canadian, but now he's not. As a leader in the completely unfounded anti-President Obama "birtherism" movement, Cruz claimed the president's Hawaiian "certificate of live birth" wasn't valid. If there were any proof of "birther" fraud, the ressult would've been to disqualify President Obama's election. Now, Cruz is defending his own qualifications for the presidency based on similar citizenship criteria. In fact, a Texas lawyer is now filing suit against "Cruz to loose" based on his claim of being a natural born citizen when, perhaps, he's really a Canadian, by birth.
A veteran attorney in Ted Cruz's hometown of Houston has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Canadian-born senator's eligibility to be president. In a 28-page complaint Thursday, Newton Schwartz asked the Supreme Court to decide if Cruz's birth to an American mother and Cuban father while they lived in Calgary violates the Constitution's "natural born citizen" requirement.

Obviously proof of being born in Canada might disqualify Cruz as a presidential candidate, because his birth was registered in a foriegn nation. President Obama's "birther" issue was never justified, because he was born in the USA. Of course this is a Constitutional issue, yet to be determined. Stay tuned.

It's impossible to undersgtand how Cruz can continue to run for president, when he could be unqualified to be elected. Nevertheless, conservative voters, who should be embarrassed by the Cruz multiple "birther" personality, seem immune to their candidate's "birther" hypocrisy.

Personality number two:  "New Yorker-ism"
As "Cruz to loose" struggles to gain momentum against the Trumponian "Donald Trump the Chump", his chief Republcian rival, he took on the personality of anti- New Yorkerism.  In a previous personality, "Cruz to loose" was proud of his high class Princeton and Harvard alumni status, branded with East Coast pedigree credentials. But, now he's not.  In an egotistical "shape shifting" political move, "Cruz to loose" is now critical of his East Coast rival just because the "New York City" billionaire business magnate has "Manhattan values" - whatever that means.  

The New York Daily News tells Cruz to "drop dead".
"Though Trump and Cruz have been jabbing each other on several issues for days, the Texas senator launched the first volley on this line of attack when he criticized Donald Trump for embodying 'New York values', in an interview on a New Hampshire radio show." Cruz even repeated the attack throughout the week on Fox News and on the stage of the 6th Republican presidential debate Thursday night, hosted by the Fox Business Network.

During Thursday night's debate, Trump delivered a withering rebuke to Cruz's attack, praising New York City's resilience after 9/11.

At this point, the "real Donald Trump" showed up at the debate.
"I saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than New York," Trump said. "The people of New York fought and fought and fought. We saw more death and even the smell of death and it was with us for months."

"We rebuilt downtown Manhattan and everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved New York and loved New Yorkers," he continued. "And I have to tell you, that was a very insulting statement that Ted made."

Cruz defended his comments at the debate saying that the American people understood what he meant.

"I think most people know exactly what New York values are: socially liberal, pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion, focused on money (??) and the media," he said.  (Meanwhile, Cruz borrowed lots of money from Goldman Sachs! This "Cruz to loose" hypocrisy is a capital "$hape $hifting" because Goldman Sachs is is paying a $5 billion (with a "B") dollar fine to settle financial crises claims. So, in his anti-New Yorker-ism personality, Cruz was an anti-money candidate, but then he really wasn't.)

Apparently, Republican right wing conservatives are more concerned with protecting extremism than they care about "birtherism" or "anti-New Yorkerism".  

Rather, right-wingers support "Cruz-ism" because they're willing to do whatever it takes to elect an intolerant politician who opposes immigration reform, income re-distribtution aka "taxes", health care as a right for all people or anything of a progressive nature, Cruzism is a terrible political personality disorder because "Cruz to loose" is the face of intolerance. At his conservative core, "Cruz to loose" is a hypocrit first and his shape shifting is evidence of a political persoanlity disorder.
