Whiner: Trump Claims to Be So Smart But Gets Outrun for Delegates by Ted Cruz in Colorado

He says he's the guy who can make better deals but doesn't take the time to do his homework for delegate selection in key states!

On Saturday Ted Cruz won all 34 delegates from Colorado at the GOP State Convention. This win culminated a process which began at the local precinct level where 60,000 Colorado voters gathered on March 1 to vote for representatives at that convention. Donald Trump didn't take the loss lying down. He and his supporters accused Cruz of "cheating" and using "Gestapo tactics." Trump bellowed that "The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians....How is it possible that the people of the great State of Colorado never got to vote in the Republican Primary? Great anger — totally unfair!"

Once again, Trump's mouth seems to run away with him before the facts are considered. Every state party has the right to set up their process however they want. There is no requirement for a primary. The process in Colorado is as it has been in prior elections and the system is not secret. Every candidate including Trump had access to the rules and to the process.

To say Cruz "cheated" or engaged in "Gestapo tactics" because he managed to follow the existing rules and prevail is ridiculous. Trump had the same opportunity as Cruz yet ignored it.

Trump's candidacy is founded on the premise that he knows how to make better deals and he will hire smart people to make sure we don't get snookered by countries like China. Heck, if Trump can't manage to follow the process for delegate selection in Colorado why should we believe he can manage the government better than other candidates?

Was it unfair to Cruz when Trump won all Florida's delegates even though he got less than 50% of the votes? In fact, an analysis by NBC News shows Trump winning more delegates than his share of the primary vote.  Is Trump cheating?

Voters in Colorado showed up by the tens of thousands to vote for delegates to their state conventions. Ted Cruz worked hard to win their support. Trump did not. Now he's just whining about it. Perhaps Ted Cruz would do a better job dealing with China!
