Fuck Ted Cruz. If he didn't denounce Donald Trump, I don't respect him at all.

Nahhh. I was pointing out WB-Scranton.

We're both PA guys (fellow Nittany Lion?) and our state is going to ground zero for the election fight to come. Those Philly suburban counties will be the battle ground. We can expect plenty of candidate visits.

You say blue, I say red. All comes down to geographical demographics.

We shall see.

I detest Cruz. He would be an absolutely awful president. And what he did tonight was totally self-serving, so he can say he was a conservative leader in the face of hypocrites like Paul Ryan (his competition?) who sacrificed their principles to hitch themselves to the doomed Trumpwagon back in 2016.

But it still makes me damn happy that he did it.

Cruz would be an awful president, but Trump would be a downright catastrophe.

Pretty much sums it up.

Did everybody forget the debate where all the candidates were asked to take a pledge to support the nominee.?

Of the other 16, they all have except for 3. Rubio kept the pledge tonight. He is in the best position for 2020.

I suppose some on the right might be happy if Bernie refused to endorse Hillary. If he made a pledge and broke it, it would only reflect poorly on him to me.

Pense came across pretty well,
So far a decent pick, net plus, not a grand slam, but I think of the choices, the best. Crowd loved him.

Upon reading your post again, I see that I misinterpreted your words. My fault.

I think Cruz is betting Trump will lose, and he'll play the I-told-you-so card in 2020, and be in a great position to do so after Trumpism fails and the establishment takes control again.

And once again, HRC will be given a Republican she can beat.

Cruz is actively trying to help trump lose and Hillary win, he says go to the polls and vote up-and-down the ticket , vote your conscience , Which is code for don't vote trump.

I want to give him props for not endorsing Trump, but then it's all self-serving and calculated so, still, fuck Ted Cruz.

Thank you
If you want to say you are glad this may hurt Trump and help Hillary, I get that. But new found respect for a scumbag move, is really just saying ends justifies means.

it would have been interesting to see what would have happen if Trump ran good, but say lost by 100 delegates to Rubio,

I think he would have been gracious and thrown his full support behind him, to stop crooked Hillary.

Well, he has had a couple of months to cross out all the 17s and replace them with 21s.

Republican Jews express support for Trump in Cleveland

July 19
Bright spot for Trump

At a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, there was surprising support for Donald Trump. At a noon gathering in downtown Cleveland, there were no empty chairs, reports Tom Hamburger, who notes that a kosher meal was served. Several participants said the mood was upbeat and rumors proved unfounded that there would be a drop-off in attendance by Republican Jewish donors, who some thought were put off by some of Trump’s more inflammatory rhetoric. In fact, several said that support for Trump was strong and that attendance at the summit was high. Attendees included big GOP donor and Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who sat in the audience with his wife Miriam and did not speak but seemed supportive of Trump (who was not there) and the speakers. Newt Gingrich addressed the group, as did former U.N. ambassador John Bolton.

Conversation revolved around the “high stakes” of the election for Israel and the world because of the threat from Iran and radical jihadists.

Cruz is done. He will lose in the republican primary in 2018, especially if Trump is elected. Texans have turned against him. He used to be very popular in this state, but now we hate him.
