My dad, “Buck” West has a very pertinent maxim”: Boy, never read your own press, and don’t drink your own tub water.”
As Written By Allen B. West:
Last night I had the distinct pleasure of speaking to the students of the University of Dallas. The topic was about the new Campus Carry Law here in Texas, allowing Texas Concealed Handgun Licensees (CHL) to carry on public college campuses. The University of Dallas is a private institution and therefore had the option not to follow the Texas law. Public institutions could create prohibited areas where CHLs are not authorized. The University of Dallas administration decided not to allow CHLs on campus. So we discussed the most important human right — personal protection — and how the students needed to work with the school administration in order to mitigate any risks to their safety and security in these troubling times of domestic insecurity.
But I know that’s NOT what y’all wanna discuss…
So as soon as I finished speaking there were multiple emails and text messages informing me of Senator Marco Rubio suspending his presidential campaign — so go the Ides of March. The rising political star has fallen and sadly the political career of Marco Rubio may have ended. My dad, “Buck” West has a very pertinent maxim”: Boy, never read your own press, and don’t drink your own tub water.” Someone told Senator Rubio he was great and to run for president and forget about being a U.S. Senator. And even when the numbers didn’t look good and Rubio wasn’t winning any contests, he continued to believe “I can win.” And so Marco Rubio just faced his personal Waterloo: he horribly lost his own state.
We’d discussed this earlier that if Senator Rubio had dropped before the Florida primary he would have saved himself this embarrassment — an embarrassment that has left the GOP establishment very angry with him because they could have possibly countered the Trump hurricane that hit the Sunshine State.
As for Governor John Kasich, well, he held his ground and won Ohio. However, going into this evening, Gov. Kasich, even with winning Ohio, would need to win some 90 percent of the remaining delegates to get to 1,237. The question that must be answered by John Kasich is what other states do you win? Once again, if this is all about arrogant pride and Gov. Kasich doesn’t withdraw it puts at risk what the GOP elites want — stop Donald J. Trump.
Here are the options going forward. First, Marco Rubio pledges his delegates to Sen. Ted Cruz in order to close the gap he has with Donald Trump. As of this time, 10:32pm CT, Missouri is too close to call but Trump holds a slim lead of about 0.4 percent. If Trump were to win Missouri, it would mean Sen. Cruz did not win a single contest in the Ides of March. Ted Cruz needs a bump, a lifeline, and the only way that can come immediately is from Marco Rubio’s bank of delegates. Do I believe Rubio will release them to Cruz? No. Do I believe the Rubio supporters will somehow migrate to Cruz? Yes. So, in the game of GOP Survivor it comes down to one thing: Gov. John Kasich suspending his campaign and making this a two-person race — a two-person race where the GOP elites decide they will take Cruz over Trump…… Keep Reading….
