Politicians – A Slim Grasp of Reality

Ted Cruz seems to have come in third in South Carolina’s Republican primary. He is close to reaching second place, narrowly held by Rubio.

Near the end of the final count, Cruz spoke to his supporters and opened his remarks with these words: “God bless South Carolina. Friends, once again we have made history.”

Who but a politician could think that placing third (after polls showing he was in second place) could be described as making history?

When people like that, be they Republican or Democrat, speak publicly, one has to wonder just how far out of touch with reality a person must be in order to be considered mentally ill?

Is it truth they lack? Or is it reality itself? Either way, such remarks demonstrate such a serious lack of character that Cruz and those like him ought not to be taken seriously as potential leaders for our nation.
