Ted Cruz has taken the heat off of Hillary Clinton
by Nathan'ette Burdine: April 11, 2015

Whelp, Ted Cruz took the heat off of Hillary Clinton during a critical time in her pre-campaign phase.

Ted Cruz’s announcement that he is running to become the next President of the United States (POTUS) made him the hot button topic.

And everyone in the media knows that when a hot story like the Hillary Clinton email scandal is replaced by another hot button topic then the interest in the scandal dies down.

Evidence of this is in the fact that the major news outlets weren’t giving as many updates about the Hillary Clinton email scandal as they did during the first two weeks in March.

The daily updates about Clinton using her private server, during her time as the Secretary of State, to send emails to foreign donors who donated to the Clinton foundation took a back seat to Cruz’s early morning tweet about his run for POTUS.

No longer was there a focus on Clinton’s press conference and the many subpoenas that were issued in order to gain access to her private server.

Instead, the conversation turned to Cruz’s denial of climate change and his reading of Dr. Seuss during a 21 hour filibuster on why Obamacare, which Cruz now uses, should not be the law of the land.

All of this was good news for Clinton who used that time to reboot her image, purchase a campaign headquarters, and to get prepared for her Sunday announcement that she is running for president.

The Republicans, however, got the short end of the stick. Instead of focusing on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and using it as a way to discourage her from a second run at the Oval Office, the Republicans were forced to answer why it’s a good idea for Ted Cruz to run for president.
