|I'll be back.|
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) credited himself with creating a movement through his failed presidential campaign and flirted with the idea of running again in an long, emotional video titled "No Regrets" posted online Wednesday.
"What we accomplished is frankly insane," Cruz said, arguing that his campaign "sparked a fire and started a movement."
"And that's powerful and it doesn't go away with one election," he continued.
Cruz said he was sad but knew the campaign did "everything we could."
"It's going to be our task to go forward and continue, fighting for that movement. It has been the greatest honor of my life to be in this foxhole," Cruz said, getting choked up. "Twenty, 30, 40 years from now the people in this room, the people across this country will say I was part of this."
Here is the video which I warn you is over five minutes long and unfortunately features Ted Cruz talking.
At the end of the video you will see the words "To Be Continued" flash across the screen.
Some have taken this to mean that Cruz is looking to run again in 2020, and in interviews he has pointed out that Ronald Reagan also lost his first bid for the GOP nomination.
The first thing that Ted Cruz needs to understand is that HE is no Ronald Reagan.
And the second thing he needs to understand is that as stupid as this country is, it will NEVER be stupid enough to vote his pasty white pear shaped ass into the White House.
