Possible, depends on next Tuesday.... If Kasich can take Ohio, I can see the scrambling establishment moving money his way...

If there is one thing they have is MONEY.......

I like Kasich fine...but even with Ohio under his belt, there's no way for him to get to 1237.

Was a really odd speech about islam with Trump, his gestures and the way he was talking, very odd, I did notice he hit all his little "Talking Points" with being PC etc.

Rubio schooled him though, and shows his knowledge about different sects of Islam, that obviously TRUMP doesnt get

Rubio is naive.

His answer to terrorism is more of the same.

And it isn't working.

Cruz's answer to terrorism is just as idiotic.

I just think Cruz has been smart enough to notice from the start that attacking Trump wholesale hasn't been to anyone's advantage and has actually sank a few.

He tries to get his works in edgewise, but I think he walks a fine line between making points and personal attacks. New York Values stepped a bit too far into Trumpland, for example.

Interesting Video. I've never much been interested in the Simpsons, but this caught my eye, and it wouldn't surprise me as i know how the circus operates.


A little irritating at the beginning but in this Simpsons episode from 2000 it shows DT becoming President, and somehow screwing it up and then HC taking over. It's just a cartoon, but has had a few episodes where inside information became reality, so who knows.

they aren't looking for 1237....

They are trying to make sure that NO ONE gets to 1237...

So THEY can choose for themselves at the GOP convention....

It's not a surprise to those who follow this deal...

It will be to those who spend more time on their twitter feed than they do on living their own life...

I believe that in the previous debate Cruz and Rubio got all got up in some kind of fervor, instigated by Romney, that they were going to do everything and anything to stop Trump. Somehow they thought it would be a good idea to slam him, even inappropriately and unprofessionally. Trump does not take that lightly, and fought back, stooping to their level.

I think this time they all realized how silly that was last time. It's good they are sticking to issues this time.

I totally blame Romney and the whole establishment movement to try to stop Trump. If you think about it, what that establishment movement was trying to do is block the WILL OF THE PEOPLE. And all I could think about that was, "how dare they...", and it truly is not surprising.

The establishment has always tried to control every aspect of the government, and Trump scares them. They won't be able to control him. This fear drove Cruz and Rubio over the edge in the last debate.

The above is why I like Trump. I will vote for him. I like what he says, and I believe he will get things done.
That the establishment fears him is just one more thing that makes Trump the best choice.

Cruz is just softening up Trump right now...a few strategic jabs so far.

They can try it, but if they broker that convention and anyone but one of the main candidates steps out as the nominee, there will be a revolt like they haven't seen.

Of course, they'll get Hillary (or Bernie) as president, but if revolt at the ballot box isn't possible ... I genuinely worry about what the next steps might be for people.

Typical Trump

"No one is more pro israel then I am, I was in a parade in NY"

Have you even been to Israel?

Bringing Romney into the fold only highlights the desperation of the establishment....


How in the hell do the GOP think that dusting off a two time loser to turn around this GOP Prez election season is beyond me...

THEY don't get it, on both sides of the aisle...

While I am not on the Trump train, or do I feel the BERN .. I can appreciate the voice of the folks crapping in the establishments oatmeal... That makes me happy...

YMMV.

Enough with IRAN the fix is easy. Build a wall around IRAN and bill them for it?

The first step in ending ISIS and middle eastern terrorism.

Is banning their oil from the world market.

End the 'alliance' with Sunni arab states including Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.

Adding them to the state sponsors of terrorism.

Sanction the hell out of them, and Add them, and IRAN to the state sponsors of terrorism.

End any arms sales to that region.

Watch how fast they clean up their act.

So Kasich wants to go kill ISIS and then leave so they can spring up again? Say what? It was leaving that allowed them to grow in the first place.

I like arming the Kurds much better.

The strategy for both Rubio and Kasich is to stay in it and try to win through a brokered convention, only Cruz has a chance at getting the delegates.

You're right establishment Republicans operate in a Washington bubble. Romney backing any candidate at this point hurts that candidate.
Ketsuko is right about complete rebellion if the RNC selects anyone but Trump or Cruz in a brokered convention.

And either one suits me because the establishment HATES them both. I think ultimate revenge would be if the convention brokers and they ticket up so the establishment has to swallow them both.
