Sean Hannity Hollers at Ted Cruz Over Delegates

Sean Hannity Hollers at Ted Cruz Over Delegates

“You gotta stop!”

In a radio interview with Senator Ted Cruz Tuesday, host Sean Hannity lost his cool.

Hannity contended Republicans were most concerned about the current delegate count, to which Cruz disagreed.

“Sean, with all respect — that’s not what people are concerned about. I’m campaigning everyday. People are concerned about bringing jobs back to America, people are concerned about raising wages, people are concerned about getting the federal government off the backs of small businesses and people are concerned about beating Hillary. The media loves to obsess about process and this process and this whining from the Trump campaign is all silly. It’s very simple,” said before Hannity interrupted.

Hannity cited his Twitter account, radio and TV shows as evidence that he knows best what Republicans are concerned about and again asked Cruz to explain the delegate game.

“Sean, the only people asking this question are the hard-core Donald Trump supporters,” said Cruz.

And then Hannity exploded. “Why do you do this?! Every single time, no, you gotta stop. Every time I have you on the air, I ask you a legitimate question, you try to throw it in my face. I’m getting sick of it!”

Umm…

umrum

Cruz was given the chance to answer the question again and again explained that all of the, “noise and whining is coming from the Trump campaign. They don’t like the fact that they’ve lost five elections in a row. Republicans are uniting behind our campaign, so they’re screaming on Drudge and it’s getting echoed — this notion of a voterless election. It is nonsense. They are making it up. Over 1.3 million people voted; we won in landslides in all five.”

“Now there is a second component beyond the election,” Cruz continued, “which is that individual delegates are elected by the people. Donald Trump’s campaign does not know how to organize on the grassroots and so when the delegates are elected, conservative activists, real conservative activists show up and they elect delegates and we are winning those elections over and over again.”

This whole ordeal is easily explained by this Free Beacon supercut:

Suck Fean Hannity.

I never mistook him for especially bright, but I did like his common sense on some things, like the Penny Plan, and his basic conservative values…as expressed.

No more. Like the others on the laundry list of FORMER opinion-makers, he’s lost any creds with me regarding what he believes as he’s embraced Der Donald and his ANTI-Constitution, ANTI-conservative policies.

I will say this about Der Donald…he has separated the wheat from the chaff as far as those of us who ARE Conservatives from those, like Hannity, who merely made noises about principles.

    Our extended family has stopped watching any Fox or listening to any Rush or Hannity.

    I was a Hannity listener/viewer.
    Was.
    Enjoyed him for quite a while. Once he decided he knew more than anyone he interviewed & started being routinely rude to people, I was done. Haven’t listened/watched in at least 3 years; local sports talk radio is more enlightening.

Sean Hannity is a genial hack and nobody would count him as a serious journalist who asks probing questions. It would have be simplicity itself to deflect the question and get at least an amiable if not a fawning response. Hannity’s default mode is the full fawn.

Ted Cruz is just a unpleasant person and this is just another example of the more you deal with the Most Conservative Man in the World the less you like him.

Another unforced error.

    Ragspierre in reply to Trooper York. | April 20, 2016 at 1:17 pm

    This from the regional BIGOT who thinks “bubbas” are anti-Semites, and “New York City values” is a dog whistle for the “bubbas”.

    When we all know EXACTLY what the corruption of New York values means, and it has nothing to do with religion. Just corruption and Collectivist governance.

      New Yorkers knew EXACTLY what Cruz meant by New York Values and they voted accordingly.

      What was it Cruz came in distant 3rd place out of 3 candidates with less than 15% of the vote.

      In Cruz’s home state of Texas where people know his dick personality best Cruz only won 43% of the vote. Trump was a strong second at 28% of the vote. Trump took 48 delegates in Texas.

      Cruz failed to get as high a percentage of the vote in his home state of Texas as did the non-Texans President Romney and President McCain.

      Yep, Cruz is a winner.

        You can also see what Mark Levin said about “New York values”.

        Texas isn’t as homogeneous as Nuevo Ork. We have the Portland of Texas where you chose to live, Bierhall Bigot Britt. Crazy liberal.

        But we also have the region where I choose to live. Rock-ribbed CONSERVATIVE.

        So, no. Cruz isn’t going to get the uniformly COLLECTIVIST vote that T-rump got in Nuevo Ork.

        Because Texas isn’t New York. Thank gawd.

        You lying moron.

        Gremlin1974 in reply to Gary Britt. | April 20, 2016 at 3:34 pm

        During the Republican Primary in Texas, Rubio and Carson were still on the ticket. Were that primary held today Cruz would be well above 60%.

          Totally wrong.

          Cruz, Trump and Rubio got 88% of the vote. All others got 12% in bites of 3% and less. Even if Cruz got half of that 12% that didn’t vote for the big 3, which is generous, he would only have 49%.

          gmac124 in reply to Gremlin1974. | April 20, 2016 at 5:46 pm

          “Totally wrong.

          I would expect better math skills from a CPA. Cruz would pick up the majority of RUBIO’S 500,000 votes putting him over 60%. The 12% other votes included Kasich and he would stay in the 2-3% range he received. In fact I am not sure Trump would receive as many votes as he did with many of his gaffes since Texas. New York may not care or pay attention but I am pretty sure Texas would.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to Gremlin1974. | April 20, 2016 at 6:38 pm

          @Gary Britt

          Well Gary once again I must interrupt your blissfully fact free life with the truth, I truly do apologize.

          Kasich and Carson both got 4.2% respectively, while Rubio got 17.7%.
          Carson’s a Rubio’s votes would most likely go to Cruz, with Kasich’s being split between Trump and Cruz.

          So Trump 26.7 + 2.1 (1/2 of Kasich) = 28.8

          Cruz 43.8 +17.7 + 4.2 + 2.1 = 67.8 Even better than Trump did in New York.

          Have a nice day.

          Nope. Your logic is faulty which makes your math wrong.

          Trump competed against top two other candidates in New York. So Cruz must compete against top two other candidates in Texas. So you can’t eliminate Rubio and replace him with pre ohio Kasich. It is also totally false to say Cruz was second choice of majority of Rubio or the others voters.

          The ONLY reason Cruz was able to win his senate seat was his getting Sarah Palin’s endorsement. Cruz is not liked as much in Texas as many other republicans.

          Your post at 6:38 pm is even bigger nonsense than your prior post.

          Yes its true (nonsensical and illogical and without any basis in fact) if you take all the votes from the third place finisher and add them to all the votes of finishers 5 through 8 and then add all of that to Cruz it really boosts Cruz’s results. Other ways of boosting Cruz’s results that are just as valid as your method is to have Glenn Beck call upon joseph smith to stuff the ballot boxes with millions of dead mormon votes.

    inspectorudy in reply to Trooper York. | April 20, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    I don’t know if you have ever been in the military but “Likability” is not one of the stronger traits to have as a leader. obama is very likable according to some people. I want an intelligent person who knows the Constitution and the laws and how to fix our nation’s problems within those parameters. In fact, the next president is going to have so many unpleasant things to undo that he will not be very popular after just a short while in office. Let’s try to elect a leader and not a social media idol.

      Ragspierre in reply to inspectorudy. | April 20, 2016 at 3:50 pm

      Maggie Thatcher was considered by a lot of Collectivists as being repellent, repulsive, and reptilian.

      Lots of people warmly hated Ronald Reagan.

      I’ll take a Ted Cruz over The Man From WrestleMania any old day.

      Yep. That is why Ronald Reagan was such a bad leader. He was just so unlikable.

      Great leaders don’t build fires under people. Great leaders build fires INSIDE of people. Cruz strikes me as a guy who can’t build any kind of fire. Not even to boil water.

Ahh, you poor cultists. No one can even ask a question of your god. Only cheering is acceptable.

You’re not conservatives. You’re commies.

Trooper York | April 20, 2016 at 1:22 pm

It was an unforced error to gratuitously swipe at New York to appeal to people like the unhinged commentators who hate us.

Just as it is an unforced error to turn a lap dog like Hannity into an attack dog.

Ted Cruz is just a remarkably unpleasant man who could not organize a gang bang in a whorehouse. You think a man of his experience would handle it better.

    Also, Cruz has MORE endorsements than does Mr. Establishment.

      Sally MJ in reply to Ragspierre. | April 20, 2016 at 1:52 pm

      Just not more votes. Yet.

      Hannity is a pundit – not a newscaster. He has the right to his opinion – the fact is, he has a show BECAUSE he has an opinion. I followed his radio show, not his show on FNC. Most of the questions Hannity asked Trump seem to be ones you could ask any candidate.

      Cruz has the support of a boatload of other conservative leaders, newscasters, and pundits, maybe more than Trump – e.g., Megyn Kelly, the entire staff of National Review. Why not just focus on them instead – e.g., appearing on Megyn’s show – which has a much larger audience than Hannity’s – instead of bemoaning that he doesn’t have all of them on his side?

      And maybe Cruz could just answer the questions asked, instead of answering like a politician, which means he doesn’t answer the question.

        inspectorudy in reply to Sally MJ. | April 20, 2016 at 3:05 pm

        “Maybe Cruz could just answer the questions asked and not like a politician”? OMG! Cruz has actually given ways to fix the mess obama has gotten us into. Trump? Oh yeah, “I’m going to make everything wonderful and bigger and better. And when I win the office I will be more presidential than anyone else.” The man hasn’t answered one single question asked of him except if he would punish women for getting an abortion.

          Sally MJ in reply to inspectorudy. | April 20, 2016 at 3:12 pm

          So tell us how Cruz answered Hannity’s questions again? I must have missed that.
          And don’t say, “But Trump didn’t either!” Didn’t work with Mom either.

          Forget it Sally, the members of the cult are like the 3 monkeys.

          Do not expect either an intelligent or honest answer from them.

          Just wait until we are going “President Trump”. Some of them may commit suicide.

          JackRussellTerrierist in reply to inspectorudy. | April 20, 2016 at 7:21 pm

          Cruz did answer it – for about the 10th time. The only difference is that this time he called bullshit on Hannity. Hannity tried to act all indignant and angry and claiming Cruz never answers it – Cruz answers it. But it’s not what the hump wants to hear., which is why Shamity stays on it all the time – for the hump to get a big headline and sue the RNC and sue his way into the nomination. He wants to blab a big headline that Cruz admitted dirty delegate tricks.

          Anyway, Shamity arguing with someone of Cruz’s intellect is like an infant trying to compete in a spelling bee.

          gremlin, you need to pull your head out. trump has a lager chance of winning, by far, than anyone else.

          JRT, link to the answer. No one but you seems to find it. Personally, I don’t care if he answers it or not. I already know the answer. Teddy just doesn’t want anyone to hear him try and explain it.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to inspectorudy. | April 21, 2016 at 3:13 pm

          @Barry

          Then show me something other than your assertions that that is true. Because I do keep track of these things, all of the polls agree that Trump will be stomped by Hillary, Trump hasn’t had a single national poll that says he even ties Hillary, or Bernie for that matter. Only Cruz has been project to at least tie or beat Hillary.

          On the off chance he does win, Trump will be just as bad a Hillary, because he has the same beliefs as Hillary. He has been lying through his teeth to get the Republican nod, because he knew he couldn’t beat Hillary.

      I’m disappointed. I went to that link hoping to see proof the Cruz could organize a gang bang in a whore house.

    MaggotAtBroadAndWall in reply to Trooper York. | April 20, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    You’re an idiot. Cruz was quoting Trump’s words almost exactly in the Iowa debate because he had the ad linked below in which Trump supports partial birth abortion – infanticide – and rationalizes it by saying he grew up in New York and his views are different from those of people in Iowa.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lt3P73y1dHc

    It was a mistake because Cruz didn’t appreciate how an ad showing Trump’s support for infanticide would be so dishonestly distorted by Trump, the media, and buffoons like you.

    “Ted Cruz is just a remarkably unpleasant man who could not organize a gang bang in a whorehouse.”

    That’s a Trumpian gold standard, to be sure.

    See how that works over here, Troop. You say something negative about Cruz and you are immediately attacked personally. Rags makes Bags look like the voice of reason.

        Rags it would be far easier to point when you are right. Pointing out where you are wrong would take way too much time.

      Now comes the Trumpkin/SJW butthurt. Everybody is so mean for ganging up on Trump supporters, just because they told a few whopping lies! It’s all so UNFAIR!!!!

Hannity isn’t the brightest, but he’s probabably the most conservative Host still on Fox News.

Anyways, the question was fair and a softball and Trumpsters aren’t the only people asking questions about the process. The process is legitimately confusing!

Yes Cruz has brought all of the criticism on himself by crowing loudly after every “victory” that the voters didn’t get to influence.

    Ragspierre in reply to rotten. | April 20, 2016 at 1:50 pm

    …every “victory” that the voters didn’t get to influence.

    That is, of course, a stupid lie, and you’re a liar.

    inspectorudy in reply to rotten. | April 20, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Imagine a halftime in an NFL locker room and the coach is asked by someone as dumb as Hannity if the coach thinks the roughing the quarterback rule is fair. Why? They are in the middle of a game and it makes no difference what the coach thinks about the rule. They started the game under those rules and that is how they are going to play. Trump and his psychophants are that dumb reporter asking the stupid question in the middle of the game. There is nothing anyone can do about the rules now. Is that too hard for you to understand?

Hannity has given Cruz more air time and more easy questions than anyone else in the media.

Cruz was just being his usual unpopular angry dick self. The one he tries desperately to hide from the public. The one 98 senators who haven’t endorsed Cruz know all too well. The dick self that drove Heidi to become suicidal in Austin.

Cruz’s lies are becoming comical today. He deadpan’s bullcrap like Trump is scared after destroying Cruz in New York. Rush was tearing Cruz up today for looking like such an obvious liar with this stuff.

But when you are mathematically eliminated from being able to win honestly with voters, and your only ploy is to try and cheat and steal by joining the GOP establishment, it can make someone like Cruz boil over when asked innocently by a harmless Hannity to explain why what happened in Colorado wasn’t dirty cheating.

Even Hannity who is more than not a Cruz supporter over Trump (at least he was up till this interview) thinks what happened in Colorado was wrong and the voters got screwed.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 20, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    Cruz has more endorsements than Der Donald.

    He wins by schlonging Der Donald. Over and over.

    That BURNS Donelle T-rump and his suckers, like you.

    We get it.

      Trump has MILLIONS more endorsements from the votes of voters than Cruz.

      Trump has the endorsements that count like Senator Jeff Sessions, Ben Carson, Mayor Guilliani, Joe Arpaio, Sarah Palin, etc.

      Trump wins by Schlonging Cruz with the VOTES from actual VOTERS, while Cruz bends over and gives up the pink to the GOP establishment promising to be their pet if they help him steal the nomination.

        Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 20, 2016 at 2:18 pm

        Where was Sessions in New York, T-rump sucker?

        Nowhere. Because, like Floooper York, a lot of New York regional BIGOTS regard Sessions as a “bubba”.

        Sell-out Sarah Palin didn’t DARE appear in the West, and she’d have been COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE in Collectivist New York, so she didn’t show up there, either.

        Joe Arpaio would likely have been arrested if he showed up in Nuevo Ork.

        Now, Rudy…a liberal “Repubican”… and a great mayor for a cess pool like New York City, would have been a plus in Collectivist New York.

        But what about any REAL conservative? Nada. Zip. Zero.

      Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | April 20, 2016 at 5:47 pm

    “Even Hannity who is more than not a Cruz supporter over Trump (at least he was up till this interview) thinks what happened in Colorado was wrong and the voters got screwed.”

    How many Colorado voters have you talked to and verified they where not allowed to vote? I would love to see a list of all of the people that were screwed so get to work and compile a list.

Donald Trump’s campaign does not know how to organize on the grassroots and so when the delegates are elected, conservative activists, real conservative activists show up and they elect delegates

These grassroots conservative activists are whom Trump and his minions call “insiders”, and “party bosses” and “the GOP establishment”.

      Actually no, its not “their” party. Just putting R on your voter registration does not make you a member of the Republican Party. I am a member of the Republican party, I was nominated, seconded, and voted in by my local chapter and I pay my dues. Therefore I am entitled to vote on local matters and to be a delegate at any level should I choose to run to be a delegate.

      So if you really want to change the party for the better I encourage you to go to meetings and become a member. If you just want to stand outside and piss and moan because the world isn’t burger king and you can’t have it your way, the shut the hell up.

        Barry in reply to Gremlin1974. | April 20, 2016 at 8:33 pm

        “Actually no, its not “their” party. ”

        As I said in another comment, I realize your not very bright. Try to read the comment in context. The “their” is from MH’s comment and therefore refers to you, a card carrying, dues paying, member of the party that brought us Dole, McCain, Romney, and fought against the nomination of Reagan tooth and nail. You also brought us Bush, two of ’em.

        I could add senate and house members you have foisted upon us with your devious tactics, but I’ll be charitable tonight.

        Burning your party to the ground and building something else will be a pleasure.

          I want to know why “conservatives” support Cruz’s accomplishment’s on the campaign because he’s applying the rules, while criticizing the Democrat’s super delegate system as rigged, unfair, and insider politics.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to Barry. | April 21, 2016 at 3:21 pm

          Actually I became a voting member to try and stop Romney and my friends and I managed to cost him one delegate. I realize that isn’t a huge accomplishment, but at least I did something other than sit in Mom’s basement and bitch on the internet.

The good thing to remember about our election year coverage , with our commentators, aides ,candidates and their shenanigans , that the Kentucky Derby is around the corner and we will get to see the front end of some horses for a change

The Ted Cruz-Sean Hannity interview is largely a non-issue. Cruz did not become unhinged or meltdown as some sites have claimed, nor did Sean Hannity really “yell” at Cruz. What this was was simply a politician choosing not to directly answer the interviewer’s question and repeating himself over and over. Hannity was simply an interviewer who wished a direct, substantive answer to his question. Both men became a little frustrated with the other. And, that was it.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Mac45. | April 20, 2016 at 7:47 pm

    Shamity was clearly baiting Cruz with the Trump line, under the lie that his twitter and so on are filled with messages from people deeply concerned about not having a vote. You could tell Cruz has explained this to him before. I would have suggested to him that, if his viewers were that concerned, he look up the process and explain it to them because he’s asked and been answered numerous times and the answer isn’t going to change. In other words, asked and answered, so move on.

Trooper York | April 20, 2016 at 2:13 pm

The smell of desperation of the Cruz fans is starting to reek. Of course they are married to him as a candidate and as we know being married to Teddy does sort of make you desperate. Just sayn’

    inspectorudy in reply to Trooper York. | April 20, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    It’s people like you and the others on this site as well as many other sites that make a non-Trump supporter wish to never vote for him. You have insulted everyone here over and over again. There are about four or five of you who never offer answers to Trump’s BS and lie and attack Cruz or anyone who doesn’t support Trump. Have any of you MENSA’s ever thought through how you are going to get anyone else to vote for your orange haired idol after slandering us all? What group do you think will magically appear and support Trump? Blacks? Women? Independents? Non-Trump supporters? Where are you going to get the needed support after you have burned every bridge down?

      Matt_SE in reply to inspectorudy. | April 20, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      They’re going to blame everyone else for their own failure, just like they did in Colorado. Even after 6 months of warning them that there would be a substantial number of Republicans who would never vote for Trump, they would blame those exact people for not turning out.

      If Trump is nominated, we’ll be witness to the greatest electoral ass kicking since Mondale v. Reagan.

Donald Trump’s campaign advisers believe the billionaire mogul is emerging as the “prohibitive favorite” in the Republican presidential race and project that Trump will accumulate more than 1,400 delegates to secure the nomination on the first round of balloting at the party’s Cleveland convention, according to an internal campaign memorandum.

The projections come in a memo distributed to Trump surrogates late Tuesday night containing talking points for use in media interviews this week. The memo, obtained by The Washington Post, describes Trump’s commanding win in the New York primary as “YUGE” and encourages his supporters to speak out about what Trump has described as a “rigged” process of selecting delegates for the Republican National Convention in July.

…..

“Building out our campaign staff to make sure we leave no stone unturned and that we can win this thing on the up and up — not through a rigged set of rules.”

…..

The Cruz spin machine produces more lies than anything else,” the memo reads. “Our projections call for us to accumulate over 1400 delegates and thus a first ballot nomination win in Cleveland.”

Hannity seems to want Cruz to apologize for having a better ground game than Trump and for Trump supporters inability to understand the primary process.

    Hannity has always sounded like a broken record. It just depends on the subject that he gets onto. He repeats the same old things over and over until you just want to slap him. He is so far upTrump’s that his hair is turning orange.

“Oh, stop it”

Did I miss Hannity asking Trump for his tax returns? I must have left the room to get some fresh air.

Trump is a clown.

Hannity has done irreparable damage to his credibility and career, he is supposed to be objective and not choose sides. I will no longer give him my viewership and I encourage others to ignore him as well.

    I can respect that as a statement (but not a decision, since it’s STOOOOOOOOOooooooPID). It is honest.

          Barry in reply to Gremlin1974. | April 20, 2016 at 8:51 pm

          No, actually he did not. He even failed to tell us he had connections to the Cruz campaign, and when called out made threats against those that outed him. They were empty threats of course, he was just trying to distract from the facts.

          He was certainly in the Tank for cruz more so than Hannity is for trump. In fact I always figured Hannity was more inclined to vote cruz, but attempting to be fair to the others.

          In any event Ragspisser is the #1 hypocrite on this board, and not just on this.

          You all are just all burned today after losing big and then having your god asked an uncomfortable question. One St Cruz avoids answering. So, now Hannity is on your shit list. Hypocrites all.

Arguing about Sean Hannity’s credibility is akin to arguing about Ted Cruz’s likability. Both are imaginary constructs at best.

The panic of the Cruzbots is quite entertaining. It is almost a reality show.

Sort of the same thing you would see in the “Deadliest Catch.” Crabs in a bucket.

AP joins the chorus of networks saying Cruz is mathematically eliminated.

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-primaries/276975-ap-declares-cruz-mathematically-eliminated-from-first-ballot

Gingrich says Trump is presumptive nominee and GOPe needs to get behind him.

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-primaries/277016-gingrich-trump-is-presumptive-nominee

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said on Wednesday he would support Donald Trump if the billionaire becomes the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

“I will support the Republican running against [Democratic presidential candidate] Hillary Clinton in the fall — whoever that is,” Walker said at a news conference, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    You left a few key words out of what AP said, “mathematically eliminated from winning the GOP nomination on the first ballot“.

      Yeah. Gaghdad Bob Britt is a liar. It’s just who he is.

      Typical T-rump cultist.

      Up till now that has been the standard. If you use your definition professor then Kasich, Graham, Ryan, Romney and the entire GOP establishment have not yet been mathematically eliminated yet either. So if that is the standard then claiming Cruz hasn’t been mathematically eliminated isn’t much of an accomplishment because under that standard NOBODY has been eliminated including people who never ran.

      So that kind of change in the standard used for mathematically eliminated doesn’t really make sense to me.

        Trump the position contortionist and Britt Trump’s position distortionist. Truly they each have a “dizzying intellect”.

        The guy who runs this blog just called you out on your blatant dishonesty and you just dig in deeper.

        You’re not fooling anyone, who doesn’t want to be fooled.

        You’re really just hot-boxing your own damn self with your own noxious flatulence. We laugh at you.

      Because the second ballot will be the way that the Republican party shows its true colors. It will be a rude awakening, but actual voters need to see the Party isn’t part of a democratic process, the party is a club, and has every legal right to go ahead and disenfranchise their base. It will be a hard but important lesson. Obviously I am hoping this does not happen.

        “It isn’t(always) clear, if you look at some of the ballots, when there were ballots, which delegates supported which candidate. Of course, this varies state by state…”

        So what you are saying is if you want to make a difference you need to get involved, talk to people, and spend some time researching the issues. Ah no wonder the Trumpkins have a problem with that…to much work.

      “mathematically eliminated from winning the GOP nomination on the first ballot”

      True, he is. He will not win on any other ballot either.

      The first will elect Trump. The GOPe is resigned to that fact and will make it happen, even if Trump falls a few votes short of the magic number.

      Pretending anything else is going to happen is just living in the same La-La land of the left.

      Read the tea leaves professor. The deal is done. Your state sealed the deal.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to William A. Jacobson. | April 20, 2016 at 7:14 pm

      They also leave out the inconvenient fact that right now it is all but impossible for Trump to get to 1237 before the convention. But facts don’t really matter to Zealots.

          @Barry or Gary or whomevers bull I am responding to at the moment, I really can’t tell you apart.

          Anyone who can do math that is based in reality can see that Trump is going to be about 150 to 200 delegates short. The GOPe is to self centered to help Trump or Cruz they will sit back and sulk as they always do.

      Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | April 20, 2016 at 9:02 pm

      “Would Sessions and Palin support Cruz against Hellary?”

      Of course they would. They’re not as stupid and butthurt as you.

      I will leave an exception, should the R party truly twist and turn corruptly to make cruz the nominee, all bets are off. But that’s not going to happen. The GOPe was using cruz to try and stop trump. Now that it is clear that cruz will be nowhere near trump at the end, they’re all in for trump. Trump will win on the first ballot, 1237 before or not.

    Won’t work takes a floor vote of the delegates to make that change and neither the Trump nor Cruz delegates will let that happen.

While the Trumpeteers are shouting “Woo-hoo, the Donald took New York and that proves he can win the general election” they forget to mention that if New York is any indication of the general election, Hillary wins by a landslide. She, not she and Bernie, took two votes for every one Donald got.

Rut Row..

Republican National Convention delegates from the District of Columbia who are bound to or supportive of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tell Breitbart News that they are open to supporting Donald Trump instead.

Some are making the pitch that they want Trump to pick Rubio as his vice presidential candidate, but nonetheless the warm comments many of these Rubio delegates are making about Trump—instead of about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)—is perhaps a sign of a turning tide in the delegate game after Trump captured at least 89 delegates in New York last night.

“I think him choosing Marco [as vice president] would make me more inclined to support him, in a more positive way, a more active role in campaigning because I really love Marco,” said Teri Galvez, a bound delegate from D.C. who the D.C. GOP says is bound to Ohio Gov. John Kasich, in an interview with Breitbart News this week.

In Indiana, Trump’s Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller labels Cruz as “Goldman Sachs’s favorite Senator.” Miller points out Cruz sided with China over America on currency manipulation and favors the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal. He says Trump will always put Americans first. Miller says Trump has the endorsement of 16,500 border patrol agents, and it is the first time in history that the border patrol agents have endorsed a presidential candidate. Miller points out that Cruz offered an amendment to increase by 500% the number of foreign workers coming into the country. He says Cruz puts donor first while Trump puts you first. He asks, “Isn’t it time you had fighting in your corner?” He says Trump will fight as hard for you as the other side fights for illegal immigrants.”

Provided for your consideration. As always, listen critically, but with an open mind. Accept nothing on face value, but THINK.

As always.

I personally missed out on any delegate selection in SC because I moved here at the end of 2015. https://www.scgop.com/stateconvention/ Delegates and alternates elected by their counties to the 2015 State Convention shall serve as delegates and alternates to the 2016 State and Congressional District conventions. Business at each convention will include election of national delegates and alternates and other officers.

To Professor Jacobsen:

The definition for mathematically eliminated was given by Cruz himself on March 23, 2016. Here is the definition of mathematically eliminated given by Cruz himself.

If a candidate needs to win more than 100% of the remaining contested delegates to get to 1237 then that candidate is mathematically eliminated. NOTE THE ABSENCE OF REFERENCE TO THE FIRST BALLOT OR SUBSEQUENT BALLOTS. Cruz was clearly referencing the ability to get to 1237 BEFORE the convention.

Cruz then went on to say since Kasich was mathematically eliminated it was incumbent upon Kasich to drop out. Now that Cruz is mathematically eliminated under his own statements he must drop out for the good of the party.

Trump hasn’t been able to force Kasich to drop out, and he won’t force Cruz either. See you in Cleveland, Trumpkins.

A few weeks ago, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
of Texas pressured Ohio Gov. John Kasich to get out of the race for the Republican nomination because he had no mathematical chance of winning.

“If you want to stop Donald Trump, there is only one campaign and only one candidate who has done so repeatedly and who has any plausible path to do so,” Mr. Cruz told a local Utah television station before that state’s contest last month.

“For Kasich, it’s mathematically impossible,” said Mr. Cruz, curling himself into a pretzel that has since hardened and just crumbled into little pieces this week.

That is because now the exact same thing can be said of Mr. Cruz and his hopeless campaign.

As of this week, it is mathematically impossible for Mr. Cruz to reach the 1,237.

The fiery Texas debater has carefully crafted his political image as a man of extreme principle, but don’t hold your breath that he will be taking any of the advice he was pushing on Mr. Kasich four weeks ago.

That was then, you know. This is now. That was for John Kasich, not Ted Cruz.

No, Mr. Cruz is now fully engaged in the dark arts of whipping unbound delegates into his camp. But hope for even that strategy is dwindling fast.

    If you have ever played poker, you know what a bluff is. Y’all can’t help yourselves. Especially you, Phony.

    BTW, is it true that Cruz got more votes in WI than Trump got in NY?

      Your posts have all the thoughtfulness and understanding of a left wing paid protester.

      LOL. Moron.

    Get back to me when you have a story that says Trump is taking millions of dollars from lobbyists to fund his campaign the way Cruz takes millions from Goldman Sachs and the globalist mega donors.

    All you got here is somebody who once represented the president of the phillipines, a guy who died 20 or 30 years ago, is providing some ground game support as an adviser. Whoa how terrible. 20 or 30 years ago this guy I nce worked for tge president of the phillipines. Then you’ve got another adviser who once worked for the evil Koch Brothers. Scarry stuff.

        I really get a kick out of your hanging on to the pitiful nobody gives a damn spin on the old Iowa corn hill stories.

        If Cruz were really principled he would drop out of race because he has been mathematically eliminated. He said it was a matter of principle when applying that stabdard to Kasich.

        Search engines are surprisingly easy to us.

        “The $69,000 from Goldman is one of the largest sums employees from the Wall Street firm have donated to a single candidate during the last few years. The firm has given money to well over 100 candidates since 2012, but only six got more from Goldman than Cruz — and two of them were Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.”

          69K seriously? That won’t even buy you a meeting much less influence. It is an insignificant sum compared to the millions that are being spent in this Primary.

          Time for Reality, first of all your 69K number is incorrect. Cruz borrowed 1.43 million from Goldman Sachs and 500,000 from city bank, both of which have been paid off.

          Now your boy Trump who btw is a major stockholder in Goldman Sachs, is in debt to just about every major domestic bank and a couple of foreign ones. He has borrowed hundreds of millions from Goldman Sachs, some of which he still owes and part of which was part of his numerous bankruptcies.

          Here are just a few examples; http://media.townhall.com/_townhall/uploads/2016/1/22/0.png

    But you’d be sliming it all over these threads, because you are a lying slime pig.

    You know it. Like it. Work at it. And you do it every day.

      Cruz’s refusal to deny his father was passing out leaflets with Lee Harvey Oswald 3 months before Kennedy assassination makes people think its true. Why won’t Cruz deny it?

      That story is every bit as factual and persuasive as your bullcrap aboutva Trump adviser once working for tge president of the phillipines 20 or 30 years ago.

      I’m just responding to your bullcrap.
