    Had a little encouragement on the job today. I work at a Christian Church as an accountant. My boss is a conservative main-stream media kind of guy — listens to Rush. He came out and said that Cruz was underhanded in the Iowa Caucus. Another lady who works here totally agreed. I think the slick-willie Cruz campaign is getting exposed for what it is. Its not just us seeing the hypocrisy.

        A massive fire forces all the animals to the edge of the river where one by one they swim to safety on the other side. All but the scorpion and the rats. The rats jump in drown one after another. The scorpion see this and becomes frightened for his life. When the slow moving turtle appears he pleads “take me to safety on the other side kind hearted turtle”. The turtle replies “You are poisonous and deadly” why should I” The scorpion replies “I will not sting you for that would mean the death of both of us” The turtle agrees when the scorpion promises not to do any harm. Halfway across with the scorpion on the turtles back the scorpion stings the turtle. The turtle looks back and exclaims “You promised, now we both shall die, why would you do such a thing?”
        “Because it’s my nature replied the scorpion”

        Seems like several folks here are becoming ‘expert political consultants’, ready and willing to add their ‘two cents’ on what Trump “must” start doing, blah, blah, blah. All that ‘expertise’ is utterly wasted on this audience, though…since none of us has a hot-line to the candidate.

        (And in case folks haven’t noticed–the candidate has made an entire empire through following his own counsel–40 years of excellence doing things ‘his way’. If he’d been ‘conventional’ all this time, he would probably have lost his fortune and be driving a cab in Queens.)

        My candidate–for whom I have already voted in the NH primary (by absentee ballot), is MY candidate. I’m totally happy to “let Trump BE Trump” during this campaign, because guess what? Trump is LEADING in the polls, by a large margin. I have faith in my candidate.

        NO MATTER WHAT–in my judgment Trump is the only candidate with adequate preparation and experience to actually succeed as our next president. Nobody else even comes close to having the executive chops and the professional skills required to deal with the mess that Obama and the GOPe have wrought upon our republic.

        I’m FOR Trump. And I would not presume to offer my ‘two cents’ on what he should be doing in his campaign.

      Why do you find it so difficult to acknowledge the problems with Trump? Foul-mouthed, childish, and now endorsed by Jimmy Carter as well as Harry Reid. Carter pointed out how malleable Trump is as opposed to Cruz. Whether you like Cruz or not, does any of that cause you to hesitate just for a minute?

          He is very foul-mouthed. When did you ever hear Reagan using the word “shit” at a campaign rally? And when Reagan got beat in Iowa he APOLOGIZED for skipping the Iowa debate, fired his campaign manager who advised him to do it (John Sears), then changed his tactics and went on to win in a landslide– he didn’t cry about it and call his opponents cheaters. In short, he acted like a classy adult, not a petulant child.

          Where exactly does Trump stand regarding single payer healthcare, Supreme Court appointments (his sister is a crazy liberal judge whom he speaks highly of), constitutional convention, and eminent domain? I will vote for him over Hillary any day, but to say a person who changed all his major views in the last couple years bears no scrutiny and cannot be questioned is foolish. Are you pro-life? Can you imagine waiting until age 65 to suddenly figure out that your position was actually pro-choice? Would you change your view so late in life? That’s what I’m talking about. Just because we hate the establishment doesn’t mean we have to act like Democrats idolizing Obama.

          BTW, I am a gun-totin’, pickup drivin’ Southerner who has never voted for a damn democrat and who has been pro-life since I was old enough to know what it was. I ain’t no establishment hack, that’s for sure!

              Were you in favor or allowing partial birth abortion prior to age 65? Trump was. Seriously– if I asked you back when you were 60 if you thought a baby should be legally alllowed to be aborted when it was half out of the birth canal, would you have said yes, that’s okay with me? Killed with forceps? I’d bet that even then you would not be in favor.

              And you better care what Reagan did 36 years ago because he was the last true conservative we had in office. Don’t you think we might learn a few things from him? Are you a conservative who has thought out your positions, or are you just a Trump supporter because he sticks it to the establishment? Yes, I love it when he does that, but that is not all there is to it.

              Reagan wasn’t perfect, correct, no man or woman is. We all have warts. And sorry to burst your bubble, but Trump is not perfect either. Cruz isn’t perfect, but I finally decided on him when Trump began his antics a few weeks ago. If we don’t have conservative justices appointed to replace the three that will retire next term, we are sunk no matter who is president afterward. I don’t trust Trump on that issue.

              Say what you like, Trump has NO track record, and like him or not, Cruz has taken some tough stands when it cost him politically. The establishment hates Cruz more than Trump– they gnash their teeth at him. Dole, McConnell, Boehner, McCain, Graham, Pelosi, Reid, Carter– they all hate him. Think about that.

                Clearly, Mr Nish—you have not seen the videos of Trump 18-20 years ago saying that the whole concept of abortion was abhorrent to him—have you? Because he did say that. And it is on video.

                He addressed that issue in a press conference in Iowa and MADE the reporter read back the whole transcript to the gathering.

                He has also stated he is NOT in favor of single payer, wants to repeal and replace Obamacare, wants insurance companies to compete across state lines—BUT we need to continue a safety net for the indigent. (as we currently have with Medicaid–but more efficient)

                Cruz has shown himself to be a snake in the grass in his dealings of vote stealing from Carson in Iowa. IMO

    Window for an independent Trump bid is wide open
    Though any Trump bid could face obstacles erected by state elections officials, they are surmountable, according to experts.

    Trump could compete in Republican primaries through late March — when two-thirds of states will have voted and two-thirds of delegates will have been awarded — before deciding to mount an independent run and still make the ballot in every or nearly every state if he is willing to pay the seven-figure price, according to Richard Winger, the editor of Ballot Access News. Ralph Nader’s ballot access attorney, Oliver Hall, and Bill Redpath of the Libertarian National Committee concurred with that assessment.

    I would love to see one of the candidates give David Rivera a shout out at Saturday’s debate.

    “Marco Rubio has kept David Rivera, his longtime friend and former Miami congressman who is under investigation by the feds, at a distance as he runs for president.

    But Rivera hasn’t kept a distance from Rubio’s presidential bid.

    Rivera traveled to Iowa ahead of Monday’s caucuses, visiting the eastern portion of the state and at meeting with other Rubio friends and volunteers to watch the results Monday night.”

    “In the past, Rubio’s aides, aware of the negative publicity surrounding Rivera, have been adamant that the ex-congressman has had no involvement in their effort. He showed up at the first GOP debate in Cleveland last August, and then at a debate in Madison, Wisconsin, last November. Both times, Rubio’s team insisted it hadn’t given the ex-congressman tickets. Rivera credited his access to the many political friends he’s cultivated over the years.”

      The ability Trump processes which garners the most praise is he hires the best and brightest available people, knows how to delegate, and listens to those around him.

Shillary kills me….I mean c’mon just the Fed Records Act violation subjects her to fine &/or imprisionment…..but perhaps more importantly, if in office, “you’re fired,” and the person is barred from seeking office. It’s the dang server that nails her, the rest is just noise that can be swept under the rug.

          And yet she’s the presumptive POTUS nominee.

          Mind blowing!

  24. I just changed my party from Independent to Rebublican…..to vote in Florida primaries. Will change it back again after our primary.

    I have been independent since I did the Ross Perot campaign in 1992…I had 7 counties in West Central Florida…after that experience, I swore I would never do a campaign again…and this was 65 hours a week as a volunteer. As everyone on here knows, the GOPe are extremely nasty, especially when their “chosen” is being challenged. They are one sword short of acting like ISSIS….I was constantly having to change locks on our offices at headquarters and have a company come in and sweep for “bugs”…this was wasted donation $$$$. And I guess the point I am trying to make is to pray for Donald and his family…because this is going to get a whole lot nastier. They scared Perot….his daughter was getting married in TX…and the day he quit, we had just completed a National poll…he was at 19% after only 3 months. There was rumor of some sort of threat against his family.

    But the experience taught me a lot….first and foremost…that campaign was grassroots all the way. We never got a dime from Perot…raised all of our operating expenses ourselves. There were over 6,000 volunteers in my region alone. People were passionate because they had found someone who spoke for them, and to them. He made a very poor choice in his VP pick and after that, the unraveling began.

    But enough of history. We hopefully learn from mistakes, but I can tell you this…1992 felt like a rebellion and people were fired up. 2016 sure feels like a rebellion. It will work…to use a mantra from the Tampa Bay Bucs when they won their one and only super bowl…”keep pounding that rock”

    Cruz and Levin exposed as shills. Cruz is a Spy! For the COC-NWO. Chertoff is as inside as it gets.
    A closer look at Cruz reveals he is a neocon insider, not a renegade outsider.
    His campaign manager, Chad C. Sweet, co-founded the Chertoff Group with former Bush and Obama administration Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. Sweet, as a leader of the Chertoff Group, “advocated for expanding NSA metadata collection,” according to his bio on the risk-management and security consulting company’s webpage.

    I often wonder if the GOP has considered voters such as myself in the road map to elect an established candidate and roadblocking Trump. I am a registered Democrat. I do plan to swing to the other side and vote for Trump. If Trump does not have a chance in the presidential election, I will swing back and vote for a Democrat. This is simply because none of the other Republican candidates appear trustworthy, electable, or have a strong history of leadership. This is the case for most of the folks I speak to…..Trump is pulling voters from the other side of the aisle………either we can vote for Trump as a republican or you lose our vote and we vote against the party.

      Two different CNN people actually said Carson was not going to be in New Hampshire and South Carolina! Any reasonable person would have concluded that Carson was indeed suspending his campaign, or that the suspension was imminent. What candidate would skip those two states except one who was dropping out? I’m not excusing the Cruz campaign though, what they did was awful.

    Rush is of course in full defense mode of Cruz. On Facebook be is posting that “Are we even bearing from angry voters that think they got cheated by this” Or even “Jimmy Carter says he would rather have Trump than Ted Cruz. Of course he doesn’t want the Reagan Republican Cruz.”

    It’s depressing to see so many defend a guy who claims he is running on Christian values and then pulls stunts like this. Many of them complain when Democrats pull dirty stunts, but are fine if Cruz does it.

      It is appalling and this is what happens when people, like Rush, get blinkered by someone like Cruz, it is almost an infatuation, and that means they lose all objectivity, so they can’t see the wood for the trees.

      There is simply no way any decent person can support the fraud Cruz has perpetrated, without sacrificing their own principles in the process.

      Just shocking how some so called Conservatives are covering this up and pretending it is nothing and of no concern. Give me a break.

        It is not infatuation with Rush, it is business as usual. Only now it is out in the open that Rush is no friend to conservatives or any patriotic American. Bought and paid for, just like all the rest. Read “1984” – Rush is a useful cover and manipulator for the powers that be, very good at his job.

    Iowa governor pans Cruz for ‘unethical’ actions in caucus

    “We have a strong sense of fairness in Iowa,” Branstad told Radio Iowa on Thursday. “Distributing information that was not true about a candidate right at the time people are voting in the caucuses is an inappropriate thing.”

    Branstad lampooned the tactic as “unethical and unfair,” and warned that he thinks there will be “repercussions.”
