    Ted Cruz, Mark Cuban and George Clooney has aspirations for the Presidency and NONE of the three will ever be able to Trump the Donald. President Trump is smart and is LEARNING a job he had no training for but he is /was far better suited for the position than any of the other candidates for the following reasons:
    1) backbone and courage. Has it not occurred to people the type of intelligence and ROARING it has taken to WAKE this country up and stop the lunacy of the road we were headed down? HILARY was slated to win that election. None of the other candidates stood a chance against those thieves. SOROS was going to push her through. TRUMP OVERCAME everything without the billions of funding the Dem’s were throwing out. HE had no budget and no one would donate.
    2) Without being an expert politician (thank God), look at what he has accomplished already in 10 months. None of those other lazy asses ever did in 8 years what he has done in 10 months. Politicians are civil servants. They are there to slough, steal and smile in your face …. well you know the rest.
    3) They always have an agenda but NO ONE that I can EVER remember has wanted to just simply bring America back. Those ass wipe Liberals cannot stop him. haha
    4) Everyone is right, he is an ASSHOLE but he is OUR asshole and you just wait … he ain’t even gotten started. He has had to fight the SWAMP every step of the way … and it’s happening AND IT”S gaining momentum. Hollywood is history. Their so busy trying to deal with their own dirt …they don’t have a leg to stand on anymore than the political cartels in DC. In less than a year … he has taken it all on and ONE MAN, a loud mouth, it takes a REAL ASSHOLE to break those suckers. NONE of the others would have ever fought them all off. It would have just stayed the same.

    The HELL with Cruz. He would have NEVER beaten Hillary and would have run for cover the FIRST time Megan Smelly accused him of NOT kissing Womens’ asses. The conservatism is here folks. These senators and congressmen need to cut their fake, ideological bullshit and get on board to get things done. If Cruz cannot support Trump, then Vote him out in November. He is up for re-election by the way.

    Ted Cruz was right not to endorse until he had a reasonable indication that a Trump presidency would be significantly better than a Hillary presidency. That point didn’t come until Trump committed to his list of twenty candidates for the Supreme Court. At the point of the convention, he had indicated clearly that he was totally unfit for office, and Cruz was unable to endorse him in good conscience then. Thankfully, he turned out to adhere to many conservative principles, but his nomination was a very risky, and totally unnecessary gamble. Ted Cruz is a known solid conservative, who would have made a much better president. I still hold out hope that he will be president someday.

    teddy cruz is a back stabbing idiot! He can’t get over being a loser and as far as I’m concerned the biggest loser and liar of the 17 candidates with the loser from Ohio very close 2nd. Send teddy back to Canada or cuba!

    Ted Cruz is very inconsistent with supporting Donald Trump , Cruz signed essentially a RNC non compete covenant when he was a hopefull Republican wants to bee candidate !!!
    Suddenly he Changes his mind I guess his politics of greed a fame interferes with his conscious signature , two faced a Janis personality !!!
    Same issues I have with Ryan two faced socialist agenda all about pork bellies /lies , both say one thing while meaning something else , these personalities aren’t the republicans who birthed this great nation , and , they both will fall by the way side over the next three years that’s for sure !!! You live by your word , you don’t have too like the outcome , but don’t be a hypocrite !!!!

    Yep, so yes, Ted was always the better choice.

    Trump is/was just another lying, nasty NY liberal democrat, (commiecrat for real) and really mistreated Cruz, Carson, etc.

    But Trump is still far above the Benghazi Bitch, so again, its vote for the lesser of two evils!

    I am glad Ted finally did come around and I was sure he would. He has always been for whats best for the country!

    Trump is too smart not to get the best around him to make the best decisions, knows how to make a great deal. Beginning to believe that all the talk about bringing the party together and voting for the nominee, supporting the nominee were just political lies and going to hurt everyone, including everyone except those in office for democrat party if republicans don’t get it together fast. And do you they want Clinton for president? For more lies and scandals? How much are they being paid to do this when they want to live by Constitution only to try to defeat the man that can bring us back to top power in world, to producing again and not all importing, to create jobs and enable those trying to enforce immigration laws and law and order in general?

    Although I’m sad that Trump is not a strong conservative, I console myself with the fact that he’s surrounded himself with strong conservatives, ie., Pence, Gingrich, etc. For the Cruz holdouts, you’re cutting off your nose to spite your face, I’m not a huge Trump fan, but he IS our Republican candidate and we NEED to retake control of the Supreme Court, the only bastion of protection our beloved Constitution has, I’d suggest every Republican for or against Trump watch Alfonzo Rachels, “To Trump or not to Trump” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyqLsQZmBMw He makes it pretty clear were your choices and your loyalty should be.

    No Cruz wasn’t and isn’t right about Trump! And Jeb needs to give it up. He also lost, so he and Cruz need to get over it and move on!

    In a September 2, 1987, interview with CNN’s Larry King, Donald Trump says he has no interest in being president and explains why he took out an ad ripping the George H.W. Bush administration.

    No, Ted Cruz only thinks he is right about everything. Unfortunately, for the Cruzers, most Republicans did not agree with him in the primaries. He had his chance to redeem himself at the convention and he blew it. He lost all credibility like so many others.

    Sour grapes TEDDYBOY. You have egg on your face,sorry. I was in your corner but you did”nt win so I regrouped for the PARTY and the COUNTRY apparently you did”nt do the same!!!!! Very disappointed in your pick up your marbles and go home attitude. If you were truly interested in the country you would have jumped on the TRUMP train instead of acting like a child. SOUR LOOSER!!!!!!

    Cruz was absolutely dead wrong about Donald Trump. Not smart enough to stick his nose back where he can hide again till he gets chance to be famous, he thinks, again. what a conceited man he is, always speaking about the Lord and then acting like this. I am so disgusted with this man and his buddy who blasts Trump, Jed Bush.

    I see there are a lot of Trumptards voting. Of course, Ted Cruz was right. Trump is like most every other politician. He’ll tell you what you want to hear and then break his promises if he gets elected. The few exceptions to this rule are Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul. Thanks a lot, Trumptards, for giving us this joke of a candidate.

    The best thing Trump has done for us is get rid of the sorry-ass Bushes, who have ruined the GOP with their big government, globalist policies. Not a cent’s worth of difference between them and the Devilrats. Republicowards, liars and deceivers, both Bushes lied to get into office, and they’re still lying. I lived under Jeb; he’s worse than the other two. No matter whether the Clinton Machine, the RINOs, the Neo-cons, the statists, and the globalists beat Trump or not. We should thank him for exposing the rotten Bushes for what they are: Big Government, Elitist Globalists!

    CFR republicans usually have the same foreign polies as CFR democrats they are all New world order men . Putin is not a globalist and maybe Trump and England don’t plan on following new world order global policies any more

    August 26, 2016,7:31 pm

  25. eric

    I don’t know but I think Ted Cruz was a globalist . Obama both Bushes , Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter were all CFR globalists NWO men I don’t think Putin is a globalists and Trump may not be either . We can’t tell they don’t announce this before they run for office but we can generally tell by their foreign policies after they are in office .

    We should be working together to get rid of Hillary for the good of America.

  27. John Sumpter

    Crus and Bush should both be removed from running for any government position any more because all they are concerned about are their own ego’s. They are almost as bad as Hillary.

    August 26, 2016,6:18 pm

  28. Jenn

    Ted Cruz is a spoiled, pampered little boy with a truly bad attitude for losing something he thought would make him great. Jeb Bush is absolutely no better and he’s shaming himself right along with Cruz. If either one of them had any commonsense or integrity they would help Trump keep this country in one piece. So what if he’s not an elitist like “them”, he’s still a great man and too many now feel this same way about him. Why don’t you both talk to Father God to find your sin is wrong. Shame on you both ! Neigther one of you will pray for saving this United States, instead go pout in your corners. I’m so ashamed of you both !

    Ted really should consider doing something else.. He comes across pretty rehearsed. I like the fact that he is a conservative however, he lost pretty severely in the primaries!! He needs to be on board with Mr. Trump and make sure the republicans win in November. I believe Trump is the best option we have had since Mr. Regan… I hope he doesn’t get “tainted” by Washington and the nasty political world.

    Sadly enough all of you Trumpy”s are to blame if Hilary gets in… She is by far the worst option by a nose over Trumpy..
