It is remarkable the amount of power that right wing talk radio stars perceive themselves to have. Laura Ingraham just told Cruz, Rubio and Walker to 'man up' and stop being such pussies for not endorsing Trump. She then called out the entire press corp and told them to 'do your jobs'. She then said 'let's send the consultants, lobbyists and pollsters packing'. As though any of these people give a shit what she thinks.
She's Speaking Truth to Power, ARM. Why do you have a problem with that?
Laura Ingraham was great...
Laura gave a good a speech as I have ever seen.
Get-along-go-along socialists hardest hit!
They may not give a shit what LAura I thinks but sure are hurting because of Trump and more when he wins.
exiledonmainstreet said...She's Speaking Truth to PowerOr, she's building her brand.
Fuck Cruz. Trump does not need his endorsement.
"AReasonableMan"Which of the groups of political power players are you defending? What value do they add to society? (Note: wealth transfers do not great value.)Or are you just upset that somebody might upset your particular rice bowl?
Why do I have a feeling that during the GOP convention, we're going to talk a lot about Trump and during the DNC convention, we're going to talk a lot about Trump?
Byron York is my favorite journalist.
Aristotle boy vs. Reality; Who will come out on top?
Astronaut Collins on Obama's legacy - lack of leadership in exploration, scrapping space programs...what was he thinking?
I wonder if Michelle Van Etten and her house husband really know what Common Core is?
She looks fully capable of knowing what she wants.
Liberals know what is good for everybody.they are that smart.
Wife was watching PBS . She told me that Gwen Ifel and the other talking heads made it a practice to talk over the GOP speakers, particularly when said speakers were attacking Hillary. We're watching a movie now instead.
I was enjoying Laura Ingraham's speech before the pundits cut into it. After all, what THEY have to say is SO much more important than the convention, itself.
it's actually based on soviet educational templates, why it's call mind arson,Laura helped topple eric cantor with the david brat endorsement, forcing amnesty supporters underground till judge haney slammed the door on them permanently,
I am watching the RNC live feed on YouTube on my TV.Works damn fine. No bullshit neither.
cspan has a clean feed, so does uverse, provide a channel for the convention,
Everybody knows what Common Core is. It is the latest in a string of failures in federal education central planning. By my understanding of such things, it has a 5 year window before the new failure is introduced.
CSPAN is the solution. No comments. Just a camera on the podium.I imagine Laura's speech is on video there.
@Comment by GuildofcannonballsMost excellent advice.Thanks!
We're takin' over this town!
That's G.E.Smith.Used to work for G.E.A little show you might have heard of....SNL.
Uverse channel 1212 for the RNC, next week for the DNC channel 1213
yes, that's the one, but it's a failure by design, the magic beans the gulf investors sold neil, who planted them in the nclb bill, it leaves students less able to read and count then the year before,
>Wife was watching PBS . She told me that Gwen Ifel and the other talking heads made it a practice to talk over the GOP speakers,<yea tried watching pbs ota broadcast. tired old peeps, snarking libtards(david brooks!). switched to you tube live feed
Why is Megyn Kelly wearing a camisole?
Pastor raised an issue. Can Hillary be believed if she takes the oath of office? She is a known liar.
Are folks making predictions re a Cruz endorsement?I don't think Cruz can honestly say that he endorses Trump for POTUS. Cruz probably doesn't think the guy is suited for the job. And, he'd like a clearer lane in 20 w/o an R in the White House. Ironically, as Trump would note, this means that Lyin Ted will endorse Trump.
I like Harold Hamm. I only wish a better speaker covered this issue. We are paying terrorists to attack us. ISIS sells it oil to Turkey and Obama refuses to bomb the oil assets of ISIS.
Neighbor of Meade + Althouse up.
America doesn't deserve Trump? Why. because I pander, pander pander!
Yes America deserves better.
Literally, just a few years ago, I was on the phone with the Koch Brothers. I gave them inside info on the protest plans to plant trouble makers in the crowd.
Has Unknown become Anonymous? The mind boggles.
Is tonight the night when it dawns on everyone that Mike Pence was probably a third round draft pick for Veep? Any ideas as to how many people turned Trump down?By all of the markers that make Pence an okay selection, Scott Walker, John Kasich and Greg Abbott all would have been better picks.And remember, when Ted Cruz suspended his campaign, how many people -- Cruz supporters -- were talking about unification via a Trump-Cruz dream team? How much of a better campaigner and a better media presence would be Marco Rubio?Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.It is really stark tonight, given the Walker/Cruz/Pence lineup.
Walker's state is a total disaster. And, the dude loves common core.
Currently, I get neither C-Span nor Fox News. :-(
Not sure repeatedly yelling 'America deserves better' is entirely in the Donald's best interests.
Wisconsin is better than ever! I don't know why people are streaming over the border to Minnesota..
Walker and Althouse better deliver Wisconsin for Trump.Okay speech by ?Scott.
PBS is all democrat operatives.
Why? Because Wisconsin doesn't deserve a Koch pet for a Governor.
I'm going to be very disappointed if Althouse doesn't have a thread specific to Scott Walkers speech with her thoughts.
Speech teleprompter must display in ALL CAPS.
Black woman is speaking and her mic doesn't work.
>Why? Because Wisconsin doesn't deserve a Koch pet for a Governor.<amerikka doesn't deserve soros' pets for president!!11!!
America deserves better than the media and ruling class we have. I am not a Trump fan, but neither I nor the nation could not tolerate four years of Hillary! and her media minions making her out to be the best POTUS of all time, except maybe for Obama. The absurdity ...the utter absurdity.
The Senior Assistant to Eric Trump has been the best speaker of the night so far.
Rubio says Trump's hands are very very small.
Where is Kasich tonight? Probably getting drunk with the Bush Family and planning how they can get Trump before he gets them.The Cable TV guys talked over him , but the RNC Network had Phil Ruffin's speech in full. It was sincere and powerful performance. Once again the politicians all seem to be reciting focus group tested cliches, while the business people and military guys all seem sincere and very interesting truth tellers.The standard of authenticity is extremely high these days.
Is somebody still sad because Scott Walker is governor? When people make goofy comments about streaming into Minnesota, an angel gets its sarcasm.
ted ted ted
We are so honored to be here, I want to congratulate Donald Trump, I forgive him for saying my father was involved in the assassination of JFK. I don't know why my daughter doesn't like me.
" pm317 said...Why is Megyn Kelly wearing a camisole?"Hey, why not? Use your assets while you can.
"Has Unknown become Anonymous? The mind boggles."In this case, Unknown = Anonymous = SandyColdfax = Sami. Can't keep the trolls straight without a program!
I'm going to pander to who ever I can even if it means dragging out the poor dead Benghazi victims out of their graves. Maybe we can bring Mrs.Smith up in the stage again.
@Anonymous,Ya ever notice how lefties are addicted to snark like cheap whores are to crack?I guess it saves both of them having to have a rational conversation, doesn't it?
I want to be President.
But everyone hates me.
Ted hitting all the right notes!
Darrell Scott's speech was powerful.
I don't want to quibble w/ Ted, but isn't it possible that there have been other times where the phrase "I want to be free" has been more relevant than now. Isn't it possible that there has been a time w/ even less freedom for some Americans?Just sayin?
Enough is enough, but can I bring up Benghazi one last time?
>Anonymous said... I want to be President.<stop being an idiot
Freedom means the right to take my AR15 to Walmart with me.
> Anonymous said... Enough is enough, but can I bring up Benghazi one last time?<email server?
PB&J:Yes. Are we now to discuss Democrats long tradition of enslavement? Or did you mean to implicate collectivists generally?
>Freedom means the right to take my AR15 to Walmart with me.<yes it does
I saw one black guy in the crowd.
"stop being an idiot"Sadly, 7th grade locker room banter is all he/she/other has to add.
Every time I try to figure out how Trump got nominated, i come here and read the comments. Then i understand. Brains are so overrated.
Birkel,I'm only noting that that statement by Ted reveals an odd blind spot. He could have reformulated and made the same point w/o claiming that Americans have never been less free than now.
Build that wall! Even if it's only a virtual wall!
Sandwiched between two fat grannies
Freedom will lift people out of their Depends!
I hope someone speaks about Citizens United - and all the leftwing CNN prog-lies in its orbit.
Bring back Jim Crow laws!
Cruz is the man.
OK tits- you can swing like all the other massholes and vote for the money grubbing whore. She lies a lot. but that's always cool with the progs.
See, one more reference to Benghazi and dead heroes. Where's the mom?
Tepid clapping for the victims of the Charleston shootings.
Anony-coward-prog-hole - can you go piss up a rope?Democrats want Jim Crow laws, you moron.
Vote your conscience, NeverTrumpers!
Goddamit, Cruz will show what the delegates missed by not picking him... good riddance now get lost.
"I saw one black guy in the crowd."Was he clean and well-spoken?
My dad did not help kill JFK!
I was part of something beautiful, vote your conscience NeverTrumpers!
a fat Cruz hater or a fat ugly prog-hole was yelling something from the balcony.
Thank God Hillary's going to get the money out of politics. Or lots of money out of politics...I'm confused.
They cut to Trump before Cruz finished lol.
Ted Cruz was booed, now that wasn't nice.
Cruz is a good man. Cruz haters should f off.
The lefties seem to be quite bitter tonight. There must have been too few cops killed today.
Disappointed that Cruz couldn't just throw a few bones to Trump. Seems petty. But I do understand how ugly the primaries were, so something has to give, and I guess this was it.No for Cruz in 2020.
It looks like Cruz decided to not be Lyin Ted. He didn't fib and say he endorses Trump.
Hang in there lefties. Tomorrow is a brand new day.
>Bring back Jim Crow laws<go for it demonrats you know how to do it!!11!!
Bad New Yorkers, booing at Cruz.
Ted Cruz is such a turd.
Voter supression laws, just bringing back the bad old days of Jim Crow.
"Ted Cruz is such a turd."He's always seemed creepy. Even before that little white blob he ate in the debate.
Cruz gets an F. Terrible speech. I thought he was smarter and a better speech maker. Too long.
Anonymous: "Voter supression laws, just bringing back the bad old days of Jim Crow."You simply can't get Jim Crow laws off the minds of democrats. Perhaps it's genetic and/or politically hereditary.
Cruz was rude and classless. Trump did the right thing cutting him out.
Damn..Cruz slipped it in a little..too bad.
Voter suppression = voter integrity.Just words.
In addition to "lock her up" signs, they should have printed some "lyin' Ted"s too.
"Voter suppression" = not letting illegals vote...multiple times.That right is reserved for dead democrats.
Trump is more popular than the The Beatles now
In a a heavily symbolic gesture a Democratic protester outside RNC who was trying to burn the flag set his pants on fire instead.The fire spread to others in the crowd and then the protesters beat up some police who were putting the fires out.Just a little vignette of life among "progressives."
Little-Trump had help writing his speech, but Eric claims to have written every word w/ zero help from anyone. That earns a lot of points from the start.
PBandJ_LeDouanier: "Little-Trump had help writing his speech,.."Easy there #idiotboss.
As someone who is sitting up in the nosebleed section at the convention, once again I am reminded why I don't like Trump-- his followers. What an ugly bunch -- including hundreds sitting in the Trump Guest section .
"Vote your conscience" dog whistle for "Don't vote for Trump". Cruz got his revenge on Trump for insulting Daddy Cruz. And no endorsement.That was awesome.
Trump will break rice bowls!
Kathryn51: "As someone who is sitting up in the nosebleed section at the convention,..."LOLof course you are honey
Gotta say, I now regret having voted for Ted Cruz during the Primaries.I refused to believe all the crap people spewed about him being self serving. Thought he meant the things he said.But this takes the cake. I was hoping he'd be the bigger man tonight. What a disappointment.
"set his pants on fire "At least that pants on fire liar stayed outside. Lyin Ted brought his mischief to the main stage
I admit I was fooled too.
"I refused to believe all the crap people spewed about him being self serving. Thought he meant the things he said."Have you considered questioning some of your other beliefs and assumptions?
Another sore loser.
"I admit I was fooled too."Maybe you'll consider that you've been fooled in other ways too.
Cruz was by far the most effective of the three unsuccessful contenders for the nomination. Walker's constant yelling was unmodulated and wearing and Rubio's speech looked a bit like a hostage video, short and slightly out of focus. Yet, I can't see Ted ever being a successful at the national level. He is probably no more arrogant than Trump, or many other politicians, but he appears so smarmily self-satisfied with himself, so anxious piss off everyone he views as less 'pure' than himself that his achievements will never match his ambitions.
I did not believe that Cruz had the personality to win a national election, but he really cemented that tonight. If he did not want to endorse Trump, he should not have accepted the speaking engagement.
Remember, if you like your health care, you can keep your health care. Period.Plus, there are no long waiting lists at the VA. None at all.Red line? What red line? I didn't draw any red lines!
Yeah I was a democrat for 50 years.
I love Lyin' Ted now, he used to creep me out.
Drago said...The lefties seem to be quite bitter tonight. There must have been too few cops killed today.7/20/16, 8:59 PMBlacks were shot, but by other blacks in the hood, so those lives don't matter. They can't be used for the Dems political purposes. If blacks can't be used by the Left to gain power, leftists don't notice or care if they live or die. People exist only to be used.
Rubio's prerecorded remarks were much more humble as is the man himself.
I'm watching Trump's son on the tube. He is rockin' the conference hall. He may have his eyes on the white house.
Paid hillary troll or just a troll? she does need to pay people to like her.Hillary’s First Priority If She Wins? To Shut Up Her CriticsCitizens United:Citizens United was all about the following:The federal government could not constitutionally ban the showing of a movie that was critical of Hillary Clinton. (You didn’t know that? Go ahead, read the decision for yourself.) It is perhaps understandable that Hillary would want the power to ban criticism of her in movies, magazines, web sites and books.Barack Obama’s [Deputy] Solicitor General specifically stated in oral argument that the administration’s position was that it can constitutionally ban books if they criticize politicians who are running for office–but it is rather shocking that repealing the First Amendment would be one of Hillary’s key objectives as president.
@eric big of you to admit that. Cruz should not have come.. Kasich looks better compared to Cruz.
Sorry, Anonymous, maybe next timeXOXOG. Soros
Trump lets Ted appear though Ted won't endorse him. Working for unity. Go Trump. The.Greatest.Ever.
Has any Leftist on this thread said one thing of substance that deserved any legitimate consideration?We need better trolls.
Eric really needed a speech writer. I give him a C.
Be true to yourself and write in Cruz!
exiledonmainstreet: "Blacks were shot, but by other blacks in the hood, so those lives don't matter."One of Hillary's delegates was arrested for attempted murder today. She shot her husband twice. Even better, another typical lefty accidently lit himself on fire instead of burning the American flag."You're on fire! You're on fire, stupid!" a Cleveland officer shouted at a lefty protester.
"she does need to pay people to like her."Let's not forget that Trump hired actors to attend his escalator dissention, aka the announcement of his campaign.$50 per head.
Birkel: "Has any Leftist on this thread said one thing of substance that deserved any legitimate consideration?"ARM is ok.
Yeah, and make America snarky for once!
The interrupters are the NY debates. New York values.(Ducks)
Kasich is too smart to get involved in that mess.
PB&J, hey buddy, just get back within the rope corral you peon you.And whatever you do, WHAT-EVER-YOU-DO, do not make eye contact with Hillary.
Lotsa money to be sprinkled around in NY
"Vote for the candidate who doesn't need this job" perfect. Eric Trump was great. His refrain was great.
The lefty trolls are terrible because they are fake trolls.
Eric Trump was great! Buzzkill when Mrs. G took the stage though.
Eric Trump (paraphrasing): it will be good to have a President who's used to signing the front of a check, instead of the back.This may be old, it's obviously close to "I am someone who has met a payroll," etc. But I like it.
Like I said, wrap 'em in piano wire and drop kick 'em!
"Has any Leftist on this thread said one thing of substance that deserved any legitimate consideration?We need better trolls."You are right, Birkel. They are a sad lot. But maybe they are all in Cleveland and they are the ones who set their pants on fire and now they are bravely trolling through pain. They should each get one of those attendance trophies - or each should get five trophies since I gather each has several personas.
Anyone who writes their own speech is a winner in my book. If speakers don't write their own words, we can only grade that person's acting ability. WTF is that?
Newt helping save Cruz's behind.
Well, you write your own comments... Q.E.D.
Haha, too late Newt.
"If speakers don't write their own words, we can only grade that person's acting ability. WTF is that?"Quite a lot it seems. It does make and break many politicians. Not all of them of course.
PBandJ_LeDouanier: "Anyone who writes their own speech is a winner in my book"Well, just about any British politician certainly can. Plus, Ronald Reagan.http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/reagan-in-his-own-hand-kiron-k-skinner/1111419047#productInfoTabshttps://www.amazon.com/Reagan-His-Own-Hand-Revolutionary/dp/0743219384Of course, Reagan spent decades having to formulate and deliver his own thoughts from the 50's thru to the 70's so he had lots of practice.
"Newt helping save Cruz's behind."Are you kidding? Is Newt's total BS spinning supposed to be influential to Rs? How can you think Rs are so stupid? OTOH.
This is a better party than in Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" in which it is declaimed as the "best party evar!!!!"Cleveland Party don't stop yo.
Regardless of which side of the aisle you find yourself on, is there anything more entertaining than watching Prime Ministers Questions?
Drago,I'm sure you'll admit that having Peggy around wasn't bad either.
pm317 said... Fuck Cruz. Trump does not need his endorsement. Noted! I am so glad to read that. Because I really do not want to hear from the likes of you, that Trump needed more endorsements from establishment GOP types. And that Trump's excuse for losing, was some sort of failure on the part of the GOP establishment. You don't care about that support from the establishment. Donald Trump has said so, and so has Eric Trump.I'm more contented with that, than you can possibly imagine. I'd like to be able to vote for Trump with a clear conscience. There are lots of Republicans like me. Just maybe, the difference between winning and losing in November.Trump needs to win our votes. That's what you'd say, if Jeb Bush was the nominee. That he has to sell you; convince you that he's the right guy for the job. That he has earned your trust and your support and ultimately your vote.Trump's got a lot of work to do.
Get this party started (again). -Pink
Gingrich is a sharp debater and politician. He ad libbed and deftly turned Cruz's attack back on itself at the start of his speech before returning to his prepared remarks. Eric Trump lacked the flexibility to respond when it would have been even more effective, immediately after Cruz's speech. To be fair, Gingrich also had more time to prepare, but being a politician is a skilled trade and you don't pick up those skills in a few months.
Next to Bill Clinton, Newt is perhaps the next guy I love to listen to.
Awww, poor Chuckie. He's not in love (yet)
"Newt is perhaps the next guy I love to listen to."He sounds high pitched and feminine to me. Not that there's anything wrong with that, for a woman.
Drago said...ARM is ok.As a moderate, it had not occurred to me that I might require a character witness.
ARM, always with the obvious.
ARM, correct. It would not have looked right even if Eric Trump could have done it.
PBandJ_LeDouanier: "Drago, I'm sure you'll admit that having Peggy around wasn't bad either"Peggy showed up in the 80's.That doesn't explain the extraordinary volume of Reagans writings, notes, musings all captured from the 50's on.I am not minimizing Peggy's contribution, but it's not like things were "dullsville" before she showed up.
AReasonableMan: "As a moderate, it had not occurred to me that I might require a character witness."You never know when you will find yourself facing Twelve Angry Men.
Ted Cruz is a quick-witted thrust and parry kind of guy - that's when you see him at his best. Next attorney general, I hope.
Anonymous taking a potty break.
Jon Ericson: "Anonymous taking a potty break."Diaper change.
ARM, Cruz may be cursing at Newt for stealing his thunder.
You will not find Cruz in Trump administration. That bridge was burned tonight.
G. Soros message broke her widdle heart.
Jesus that band reaffirms every awkward republican stereotype.
CNN claims Cruz was screamed at and someone had to be restrained from going after him in one of the big donor boxes. And, His wife was screamed at and had to be hurried out of some other area.But, Newt tells Rs that Cruz was telling them to vote for Trump. How dump are y'all?
"AReasonableMan" has declared himself a moderate. Of all the statist, collectivists I know "AReasonableMan" is the most moderate.
It's Cleveland Mannnn.
Not in the at all.
"How dump [sic] are y'all?"Perfect in every respect, that comment is.
"CNN claims Cruz was screamed at and someone had to be restrained from going after him in one of the big donor boxes. And, His wife was screamed at and had to be hurried out of some other area."Nah, Trump people aren't a bit violent.
If the Ds truly cared about the downtrodden and unfortunate wouldn't they through some wrenches in their convention to make the Rs feel better?
Birkel,Don't assume everything that seems like an error is. Are you new to these threads?
PB&J: "...big donor boxes..."What's all this I'm hearing about big donut boxes? Why do we need such large boxes for donuts? Did the donuts get larger or are they simply wasting space and cardboard? I don't think it's wise to be this wasteful of sp.......er, what's that?Never mind.
How was the potty break Anonymous, Everything come out O.K.?
I denounce myself.
Millions of new voters y'all.Don't be forgettin' now: I know you won't.Mwhahahaha.
"...wouldn't they through [sic] some wrenches..."Comedy gold.
Chuck,Wouldn't you say that Trump is trying to win your support? Look at his Supreme Court list? look at his VP choice? Look how he let his enemies from the primaries (who have many supporters still) speak.Then, look outside the RNC convention. The ten of thousands of protesters who were going to mobilize and show Trump have melted away like snowflakes in the sun. That does mean something. Look at how he has reduced the media to driveling Pajama Boys, spending their time attacking a attractive woman.Isn't he right when he says it's time to spend time on America, not on the globalizers?I don't mean this nastily - but what is it that you want Trump to do?
