Who was the best speaker at the Republican National Convention? Make your pick by voting below!
Was disappointed with Ted Cruz. The rest were good I thought but Donald Jr was great all way around. I can see him in 4 to 8 years from now. I can only hope he thinks about running by then. I have been told a few times now you can fake a lot of things – but you can’t fake your children. These kids are real you can see that when they talk, the way they work, and most of all the way they act.

Donald Trump and his beautiful family were amazing at the convention. We could possibly have another Camelot in the White House again bringing hope to America. # NEVER CRUZ! Ted Cruz is a traitor, crybaby, and snake in the grass.

MR Trump speaks to how I fill

Donald Trump’s speech specifically addressed the issues that are important to most Americans and that have a real impact on our lives. I thought he was absolutely right on with every issue. It was also an extremely well organized speech. Giuliani, as someone else here posted, was ELECTRIFYING. Perfect description. He had the people on fire and I love his ability to unite us in our common goals with so much enthusiasm. And then, there was Cruz. He started out so well and then his “conscience” kicked in. Sorry, Ted, you can’t paint yourself as a man of integrity while at the same time breaking your written pledge to support Donald Trump. Such a disappointment. Cruz could have been a real strength in the Trump campaign, but Trump will move forward successfully without him.

TO J. DEMARTINO, YOU ARE SO WRONG. TED CRUZ BROKE HIS OATH AND THERE IS NO WAY AROUND THAT, A LAIR!! TRUMP DID NOT RAISE HIS HAND ON THE FIRST DEBATE BUT HE LATER SIGNED THE OATH!!! HE WOULD MOST DEFINATELY WOULD HAVE HONORED IT.
AS FOR THE SPEAKERS THERE WERE MANY GREAT SPEACHES, TRUMPS ACEPPTANCE WAS GREAT. ALL THE TRUMP CHILDREN, RUDY GIULIANI,
LAURA INGRAHAM, LOVED CHRIS CHRISTIE’S, THE GENERAL’S ALL THE PREACHERS, PERRY, THE PARENTS OF CHILDREN WHO WHERE MURDERED,ECT. ON THE WHOLE I THINK IT WAS AN EXECPTIONAL CONVENTION!
AS FOR CRUZ HE’S DONE IN POLTICS, JEB BUSH AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY TOO. MITT ROMNEY, THE RAPIST OF COMPANIES/DADE INTERNATIONAL, LOOK IT UP! WHERE HE TOOK $242 MILLION DOLLARS OUT OF IT, LAID OFF 1700 PEOPLE WAITING TO GET PENSIONS WITH ONLY A FEW YEARS TO GO, BOUGHT 3 MORE MEDICAL SUPPLY COM’S. AND BROKE THEM UP AND SOLD THEM OFF FOR PROFIT, NEVER MIND THE PEOPLE WORKING THERE. NO WONDER HE LOST THE LAST ELECTION!!!
AS FOR THE NEVER TRUMPSTER’S THEY NEED TO TAKE A PAGE OUT OF THE DEMOCRATS PLAY BOOK! OBAMA HATES HILLARY, THE PIT BULL WARREN IS A SANDERS GAL, SHE HATES HILLARY TOO. BUT BOTH ARE CAMPAIGNING FOR HILLARY. THE DEMOCRATS STICK TOGETHER NO MATTER WHAT.
THE EGOTISTICAL REPUBLICANS NEED TO LEARN THIS, OR THEY WILL NEVER TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE BACK!!!
SO WAKE UP!! IF HILLARY GETS IN THE AMERICA WE LOVE WILL BE NO MORE.

With the exception of Cruz, who I supported, they were all excellent. But Giuliani was electrifying. What guts and fearlessness!!!
July 23, 2016,1:29 pm
And all Cruz support ers, must acknowledge, that times are changing, there are many conservatives that will tell you, times are changing, ask Caitlyn Jenner, a self proclaimed conservative republican, we are all americans, lets get united and put Donald J Trump in the white house, who else but Trump, only Trump 2016.
July 23, 2016,12:28 am
A vote from Trump is an act of patroitism and common sence, a vote for hillary is a vote of extreme carelessness, she cant even get a security clearance, or should be able to, after mishandling government classified documents, it just shows how corrupted this administration is, that broad should be on her way to prison, she l be defeated at the polls, lock her up, and if there are enough stupid people that will vote for her, put her under white house arrest and make her wear an ankle bracelet, lock her up, Trump wi ll win and get us out of this mess Trump 2016
July 22, 2016,10:14 pm
Yes, Ted Cruz is a conservative. Who will be able to do nothing,
if ever elected again to any office, which I doubt. He is definitely a self important politician, who would never be able to get his policies through congress. Conservatives, and I am one, have put this country (and world) where it is, because they are afraid to do the right thing. They cave – always.
Just look at the history since Reagan. Wake up! If Trump cannot
change the important issues, we are done – the world is done.
Do you believe that Isis, etc. want us dead? Do you believe that
illegal immigrants are actually illegal? And, they are making us
a third world nation. Sooner than later. Wake Up! There was no
one who was running for the nomination this year other than
Trump who would even have tried to change the things that are
ending our republic. No One. He has a chance, let’s give him
our support and try to save this country.

Ted Cruz is the best speaker of the RNC
July 22, 2016,8:55 pm
Personally Ted Cruz is the best speaker of the RNC
July 22, 2016,8:53 pm
Bobbie, it seems to me that you must be a psychic to think that you can know what a person is and what he/she is thinking. This is brilliant. Why don’t you never Trumpers for once maybe try to figure out what is in Mr. Trump’s heart. His true patriotism, love for his country, and the people in it. This is not a façade. Millions get it. Ted Cruz is a proven liar, back stabber, egomaniac, moron, and a arrogant, pompous, and narcissistic jackass. His true colors came shining through the other night. You would have to have some type of intuition to maybe understand this. I know this is not for everyone.
July 22, 2016,8:12 pm
Ted Cruz is the ONLY conservative on that list. Republican does not equal conservative. This is more true than ever now with a New York liberal with New York values at the head of the ticket.
July 22, 2016,7:43 pm
Ted Cruz is the ONLY conservative on that list. Republican does not equal conservative. Now more than ever.
July 22, 2016,7:40 pm
Do we conservatives even understand that the conservatives
we elect have done nothing to further the conservative agenda
since Reagan. Now, we need to see and do something about
the things that are ruining our country and world. First, illegal
immigration (just think what is has done to our country) and it
will make us a third world country very soon. Eliminate ISIS and
their clones , and appoint Supreme Court Judges who interpret
the law according to the Constitution, not make laws. We also
need to control our electected officials. They serve us!
July 22, 2016,7:40 pm
The reason is not that he is an orator, obviously…it’s because he’s passionate about his message – to restore America to traditional principles that made America great in the first place! We need to change the direction of this country.
July 22, 2016,6:59 pm
Short list. I do not see how Cruz was even included due to his inability to keep his pledge and attempt to destroy a historical event. Donald Trump,Jr and Eric Trump should have been on this list they were flawless as well as Melania Trump.
July 22, 2016,5:34 pm
Cruz vowed to “support” the eventual nominee – which he doubtless will when he supports the entire GOP ticket in November. He never promised to endorse the lying sonuvabitch who called his wife crazy and accused his father of killing JFK. And who the HELL thinks for one second that Trump would support (never mind endorse) Cruz if their rolls were reversed? He’d be running 3rd party of as Hillary’s VP.
July 22, 2016,4:52 pm
Ted Cruz gave an intelligent, thoughtful speech that included freedom, liberty and the Constitution. It’s a sad thing that he got booed at a Republican convention for mentioning “conscience” and “God.” The crowd reaction sounded like the DNC. It looks like my party has taken a large left turn that has no room for conservatives.
July 22, 2016,4:36 pm
They were all great , except forCruz who showed his true self, but Mr Donald J Trump was truly Presidential.
July 22, 2016,4:30 pm
Giuliani was great and powerful. Christie was alright with his skit.
Cruz was good until the end and Donald’s was super but his daughters speech was SUPERB!
July 22, 2016,4:22 pm
There were a lot of good speakers and an amazing amount of successfull women spoked greatly about Trump, every speaker had an inspiring story that connected with the convention audience and me at home,Trump brought the house down with his acceptance speach, he got everybody unified , he will make a great leader and a great president, can’t wait for Trump to get in tge white house and start Making America great againg.
July 22, 2016,4:17 pm
You did not include Laura Ingraham. SHAME ON YOU!!
July 22, 2016,4:17 pm
Great speech by Giuiliani👍
July 22, 2016,4:09 pm
July 22, 2016,4:07 pm
Gray speech by a number one Republican.
July 22, 2016,4:07 pm
Good convention except for Ted Cruz who violated agreement.

Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
