    Yep!

    As much as I dislike Cruz, I'm glad he finally came around - better late than never. Bush? Who cares?

    I voted for Cruz. I was disappointed when he blew up at the convention. I am glad he is back, and ready to support Trump.

    I would have supported Ted if he was the REP nominee and can't see all the reluctance of others not to now that Trump is it.

    Amen chief! You have been steadfast from the start. Yes, I would prefer Ted Cruz to be the nominee for one reason his experience. But Donald Trump has come a long way. He may yet be another Reagan. We shall see. We're not totally sure how he will perform yet, but we are pretty damn sure what we will have with Hitlery in power. I have seen Trump select an excellent VP candidate. I have seen him modify his strategy. I have seen him tone down his rhetoric and make a vast improvement in his style. Yeah he made some silly mistakes with his mouth at first, But I really believe that was because he was so passionate about getting to be president where he could do some great things for this country. I really believe Trump will reward Cruz for this and I think they along with Pence and others such as Ben Carson, Chris Christie, and Rick Perry will eventually play a major roll in making America Great again.

    Again! One of my favorite semi jokes in 2008 was: How can Hillary run for POTUS when she has already served the maximum 2 terms? I always suspected who was driving that train. Bill was never the sharpest knife in the drawer and was very busy with his extracurricular activities. His statement that confirmed it for me was concerning Winchester Black Talon ammunition. Something like. " And these talon bullets. They need to be outlawed as they could cause horrible wounds". Ummm... That's what bullets are designed to do!

    So he spelled out what voting your conscious means, and some folks managed to figure it out, nothing different than at the convention.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Cruz has made rock-solid decisions, from the beginning. It was inevitable that he would have to endorse the Republican nominee, and I commend him for waiting until he could get something out of it, i.e. a commitment on six issues that Trump has been wishy-washy about. Trump is just about as likely to renege on them as Hilary would be, but he did promise, and that gives Cruz political cover and allows him to keep his own promise to support the Republican candidate, as the candidates all promised to do at the outset. Cruz's appeal to the Texans who have voted for him has always been his devotion to the Constitution, and the fact that he has always done what he said he would do, when campaigning. By waiting this long, it takes the edge off of Trump's nasty campaign attacks against his family (somewhat). Politically, it is the right move, and hopefully it is the best thing for the country, if it helps keep Hilary out.

    Talking heads were sayin he could loose his seat to former Texas Gov Rick Perry if he decides to run for it against Ted, polls are in Perry's favor if he did. So yes it was a smart move in more ways than one.

    Perry needs to align with Cruz and run for John Cornyn's senate seat. Cornyn is a borderline RINO who will side with the Republican establishment, if he thinks no one (at home) is looking. His voting record is good, but he worries genuine conservatives, sometimes. Of course, I always thought the same thing about Rick Perry, and he was a good governor, anyway. I was always a little nervous about him because he used to be a Democrat and supported Al Gore's first presidential run, way back in the eighties when Gore was still pretending to be a conservative democrat.

    You know that back in the 80s there were a lot of conservative Democrats in Texas and the South. But the Democratic party finally got so far left they all started switching parties or retiring from politics. Now what's left of them in Texas aren't conservative. They survive in left leaning or traditionally Democratic districts. Perry was one of those left over dinosaurs. Becoming a Republican revived his political career. In effect, the present day Republican party was yesterday's conservative moderate Democratic party, which bye the way, doesn't exist anymore.

    You're right on here. It just took him a few months to get over his butt hurt. Also, I get his news letter every month. It's not a No Reply email like some will send you. You can make comments. I did along with a lot of Texans. My comment was to get over it and endorse Trump so we can keep Hillary out of the Oval Office because there's just too much at stake.
