Ted Cruz's apology to New Yorkers is full of classic New York American values

OK, so Ted Cruz accused  native New Yorker Donald Trump of having "New York values" whatever, they are.  So naturally an NBC reporter, Hallie Jackson, asked him  if he wanted to apologize.  And he did.  

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio have all demanded an apology and I'm happy to apologize. I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers who have been let down by liberal politicians in that state. I apologize to the hard working men and women of the state of New York who have been denied jobs because Gov Cuomo won't allow fracking. Even though there had been many high-paying jobs just south in Pennsylvania, New Yorkers are denied the ability to provide for their families. I apologize to all of the pro-life and pro-marriage and pro-Second Amendment New Yorkers who are told by Governor Cuomo that they have no place in New York because that's not who New Yorkers are. I apologize to all of the small businesses who have been driven out of New York City by crushing taxes and regulations.

I apologize to all of the African-American children who Mayor de Blasio tried to throw out of their charter schools that were providing a lifeline to the American dream. And I apologize to all of the cops and the firefighters and 9/11 heroes who had no choice but to stand turn their backs on Mayor de Blasio, because Mayor de Blasio over and over again stands with the looters and criminals rather than the brave men and women of the law.

You can hear Ted Cruz answering the media here. 

This is no craven apology to the liberal betters.  It is a new Republican apology, part of a new Republican mentality.  A new attitude. Whatever you may think of Cruz, Trump, Carson, Rubio, Fiorina and the "clown car" (gee, haven't heard that phrase for awhile) group of Republican presidential contenders, at last this 2016 group has mostly broken free of answering to the Democrats, defending themselves against the Democrats and their liberal media acolytes.  Now the Republicans are beginning to learn how to set the agenda on their terms by going on the offensive and to control and direct the narrative while the Democrats are on the defensive, ineffectively trying to explain their faults--remember Hillary's lame answer to the question if she wiped her computer clean "with a cloth or something"? Hillary the grandmother.  And more.  

Keep it up guys and lady.   This new tone is what so many Americans have been waiting to hear.  What we need to hear.
