The anti-Trump conspiracy heats up, Cruz and Kasich join forces …
April 25, 2016 8:58am CST
It appears that over the weekend the camps of Ted Cruz and John Kasich decided to temporarily stop hating each other’s guts and join forces against Donald Trump. Basically, they have concocted a plot to prevent Trump from getting the necessary 1237 delegates outright. If they can't get the necessary delegates themselves, they are shooting for second-best, a contested convention. Apparently, the Republican insiders fear that if Trump wins Indiana, he is well on the way to the 1237 delegates. The plan, as I understand it, is to drop the race to a two-man race for now. Cruz figures he can win Indiana if Kasich backs off. Kasich has apparently agreed. In return, Cruz will back off in Oregon and New Mexico so Kasich can win those two states. Personally, I hope they both lose by a landslide. My guess is that this will backfire on the anti-Trump conspirators and only prove Trump's point all along, that the election process is dirty, corrupt, unfair and rigged against him. It will be interesting to see how the voters respond to all this behind-the-scenes scheming. This is politics at its dirtiest and reminds me of why I have always so intensely disliked politics.

There has to be more to this deal. I suspect Cruz has offered Kasich the VP slot. There is no more pretending about conspiring and scheming. They called trump a liar when he accused them of that and now he has been proven right.

I believe Cruz approached Kasich. I don't think Cruz would ever suggest anything that he wasn't sure he wouldn't come out the winner, that somehow he'll come out better than Kasich in the long run. It's Cruz' only hope to keep Trump from the 1237. So sleazy.
