Wednesday: Make America First Again


America has always been an exceptional nation. Our Founding Fathers created a system of government that has protected our liberty, allowed American ingenuity to flourish, and lifted people out of poverty by creating the conditions for opportunity and prosperity.

Hang on to your hats tonight with Cruz's speech. He has just spoken to his supporters at a Cleveland even and he gave absolutely no indication that he is going to give any quarter in his relationship with Trump...

There are a lot of people very worried about a Hillary presidency as well. A lot of reasonable people who despise Trump, are just as worried about a Hillary presidency.

I agree with your comment about Americans and TV / short term memories - I would add that as a non-Trump or Hillary supporter, that is how we have gotten to the point we are at.

I'm waiting for Ted Nugent!!

One of the most despicable individuals ever to come out of the entertainment industry but that SOB can Rock. I respect that but come on....Scott Baio.

Even my republican compadres here in the press office face palmed that one and mentioned how out of touch the Trump convention has been and these are staunch Republicans. I sneak peak at their tablets and they are secretively perusing the Gov. Gary site. What's that tell ya?

Not to mention the Trump kids telling us how much they love their daddy....even the die hard family values folks gagged on that BS.


You are thinking in terms of celebrity.

Did you know Scott Baio's daughter was born with a rare disorder which prompted him to start a charity with his wife to help other families financially dealing with similar issues and newborn screening? You know just a regular guy who seems to care about other people. I'd rather hear from the likes of him than a hotshot celebrity or politician thanks. Our elected leaders are supposed to represent us, not Hollywood.

It will indeed be interesting to see how Cruz handles this.
Will he behave like a sore loser? Will he be gracious?

I think he is going to go off script and trash Trump and the GOP.
Newt Gingrich said this morning that despite reports the contrary, Cruz's speech has not been vetted and Trump has not even seen it.

Cruz will do the right thing and will support the Trump presidency...He knows the alternative is a sociopath lying crook named Hillary Clinton.

Gary Johnson is hinting Jeb Bush will endorse him.

they all will begrudgingly endorse Trump, not bc they agree with him or like him, but bc it will be easier to pass their agenda thru Trump than Hillary.

It has nothing to do with Hillary's "lies" or perceived "crook" way of life.

They endorse Trump because supporting the republican nominee is the comfort zone. To not support the nominee is to stand out and risk their career. Simple as that. Every candidate who said the most vile things about Trump and later endorsed him and ate their words... Fear...Lack of spine.

What we see now is a unanimous lack of spine.... Basically the idea is... Allow yourself to be raped, because if you fight it, it could be much worse.

Do you have UK leadership that's catering to Hollywood?

That said, they are representing their party, and as the logic of political parties go (logic=illogic), they'd rather have the (R) beside the President's name than a (D).

I don't think it's purely or simply a matter of "spinelessness" ... politicians are politicians: they do what furthers their careers.

I do think, personally, they're betting on the wrong horse, but that's just me.

There are some good people in their party. But they have to leave God and abortion at the door if they really want to be considered.
...


In my humble opinion, I think that if people watch the convention with an open mind, and make a decision based on important factors, they might be better off than basing the decision on leaving God out of it and murdering babies.

We are selecting who should be the president of our country. We need a leader who puts the country on a path towards a better life for our children and grandchildren.

But, if all someone cares about is getting God out of their life and murdering babies, then I can see why they would choose Hillary. She will meet the criteria, if that is all that one requires in the leader of the country.

Your (US) elected leaders ARE my elected leaders too.
We're the 51st State of America - didn't you know? been that way for many years.

LOL ... fair enough.

I think HRH might differ.

Off-topic: I look forward to hearing what you have to say about Mrs. May at some point.
