In launching his presidential campaign today, Senator Ted Cruz showed he has a fondness for the word imagine using it 38 times in his speech. On one of those occasions, Cruz even implored his audience to text the word.
Now there's nothing wrong with the word imagine in of itself. I suppose Cruz and his team intended imagine to be their answer to Barack Obama's use of the word hope. The only problem is that the word imagine is so strongly associated with John Lennon and naturally a lot of people picked on up on it and are having fun with it including The Daily Caller.
Well, it might just my imagination (sorry, I couldn't resist the temptation), but I don't think Cruz and company were seeking to be associated with the late Beatle. If this is the case then they might have better suited to choosing a different theme word for the campaign.
