Senator Cruz to Vote for Trump for President

News broke late this afternoon that Ted Cruz will announce by Saturday (September 24) that he has decided to vote for Donald Trump in the November election.

Ted CruzCruz was the last candidate to drop out of the Republican primary contest.  He was unable, at the time, to get past the more personal remarks that characterized the blood sport process of the difficult primary season.  Cruz is a staunch defender of the US Constitution and was highly regarded as the true Conservative in the primary races.  I personally believe that Cruz had a carefully scripted plan to win the Presidency and Trump's entering the contests and replacing Cruz as the outsider in the primaries was an unanticipated disappointment for the Texas Senator. Donale Trump

He initially did not support Trump at the Republican Convention but, with the passage of time, he has apparently come around.  At this point, I have only heard that Cruz will vote for Donald Trump.  I am not saying that that vote will come with any further gestures of support.  But Senator Cruz has certainly seen the view of the future of the Constitution under a Hillary administration.  

This cannot be an easy announcement for Cruz and I honor him for his love of Country ahead of himself.  

Film at Eleven.

You may characterize Cruz as "putting country ahead of himself," but this endorsement, to me, is Cruz putting party before country. 

My simple question: Has there EVER been a lesser qualified person, in temperament, competence, experience and decency, to have a legitimate shot at becoming President of the United States than Trump? I doubt the man could pass a basic civics exam.

Karl - you and I are not going to agree on your media talking points about Trump, no matter how often you state them. 

The answer to your "simple question" is yes.  I expect many times - but I only have to look at Hillary Clinton to find a less qualified candidate.  Hillary is not Bill - and I view her as less qualified than Trump in every category you mention with the possible exception of political experience.  Hillary has been a close witness to history over the past 30 years but wherever she has been a participant in the process she has been a disaster in my view.

Trump has said things in his political inexperience that I regret - but Hillary has done things from her positions of power that have caused the death of Americans, enriched herself and her husband in what can only be called a RICO scheme (racketeer influenced and corrupt organization) with continual denials and the protection of the media and under color of law - that is my opinion and, I believe, a reasonable interpretation of the facts.

Is it reasonable, Karl, to suggest that a man of Trump's obvious business accomplishments and accumulated wealth could not pass a basic civics exam?  Really ?!

Karl, you and I have had friendly disagreements in the past (and a few agreements) but you are over the line here and you do not invite reasoned debate.  I am not going to listen to any more of this sort of character assasination without some facts.

I will oppose Hillary Clinton for the balance of the Supreme Court alone.  I did not object to President Obama's first two Associate Justice appointments because they did not change the overall balance of the Court.  He replaced liberal Justices with liberal justices.  But now the next appointment of a Justice to replace Justice Scalia could alter the balance of the Court for a generation or more - and the next President may appoint several more Justices.  Donald Trump has made it clear what sort of Justice he will appoint, if elected.  I have had it with President Obama's fundamental change in America.  I believe that Donald Trump will defend the Constitution from all enemies - foreign and domestic.  And I hope he will not be too late.

Ted, I think Kaisich will come around also. It is time to make a united stand against all the lawlessness that began under the current administration. Karl mentioned electing an unqualified to be president. We have done this twice in the last 8 years.

Let me give an example:

A couple of months ago Trump was asked, "What are the top three functions of the United States government?"

Trump was stumped. With the exception of national security, he couldn't seem to think of what other key duties were within the federal government's purview. What about promoting justice (equality under the law), encouraging interstate commerce and managing our international relations? What about, in language more common among the framers, ensuring "domestic tranquility"?

The other two he named – health care and education – are not only not central to the national government's mission, but they are generally understood, by an overwhelming majority of conservatives, to be activities of an overreaching government.

Hi karl - You are missing the point.  Donald Trump is not going to be judged by supporters by the same criteria as a political hack, which is an inelegant description of Hillary.  I already covered this in my comment above.  Trump has said things which I regret - but Hillary has a thrty year record of doing things which caused the death of Americans and has led to a rotten economic climate for everybody but the elites and has shown no concern for anybody but herself.  I and an increasing number of Trump supporters have had enough.

Trump has recognized a half dozen or so major problems with the Country and has spoken out on them as his agenda when he is elected.  If these items are corrected - then I am satisfied.  I am not looking for a professor's view of the country - or a perfect Conservative.  But I believe that We the People are being taken in the wrong direction at an exponentially increasing speed and this is our last chance to correct the course of our Nation.  We may already be too late.  And Hillary, and the people that she represents, are the problem. Donald Trump is the only answer available to us, flawed though he may be.
