Ted Cruz :-(

...I can say after listening to him last night and then again this morning (yup, he had more to say) that any trace of respect I had for him is gone. I never liked him but now I defiantly DON'T. What an absolute A$$!!!

I never liked him but Trump gave him both barrels during campaign even going after his wife. I wouldn't have let him show up unless he had agreed to the premise of the endorsement. He's done.

I agree with Ted, going after ones family like Trump did was wrong.
I don't like Ted but I can respect his principle of standing up for his family.

I think he has hurt himself in the future if he decides to run in 4 years.

I thought he spoke very well. Trump sounds retarded in comparison. Trumps seems to have one stump speech; in summary "We are going to win. We are going to win big. Everybody said I didn't have a chance. We'll we are going to win big, win big" And they the name calling begins or bragging about how much money he has... Yadi yadi ya....

If Cruz is still upset with Trump, he should have skipped the convention all together. That would have shown principle without acting like a sore loser.

Regardless of what Cruz says...he lost. Regardless of how insulting Trump was to him, he lost. Seeing as how I believe this election is one of the most important elections in the history of the United States I am really disappointed in Cruz for not rallying around "whoever" won the nomination like he pledged. I've held my nose and voted many times myself but not criticized at this stage of the game ever. There is too much at stake to mess around with personal principle and hurt feelings and bitterness at this point. I'm sure anyone standing up for the constitution knows who to vote for but dropping your pride for a cause greater than your own is the only move in this case. Let's hope to God that Hillary doesn't win and continue our socialist path or we might have to change the country name to USSA.

...I'm not in any way defending Trump's sophomoric trash talk during the primaries. I didn't care for that either. At this point though the focus needs to be on winning the election. Cruz was in a position to help create some unity and momentum and opted to not do so. He's an intelligent man and his actions were by design. To me he came off as a bitter sore loser and didn't bring anything positive to the table. in my opinion he deliberately created a scene which could have put off some of the "swing voters" that will wind up deciding this election.

Well, at least Ted was up front from the beginning by telling Trump three days in advance that he would not endorse him.

I don't see how this can't be understood by people. I have conservative friends either staying home or voting for someone else because of their principals, which is a totally selfish act considering the ramifications of this election to the country.

Envision where we'll be in 20 years if Hillary gets the office then figure out how to explain to your grand kids how you had an opportunity to prevent that but decided your ego and principals were more important than their future. Maybe that's the problem - maybe people just can't see beyond the present.
