Republican Convention: Cruz supporters planning trouble?

#1

I will vote for the Republican nominee regardless who it is. However, as a long-time Cruz supporter, if he and his crew pull this garbage, and in the process hurt Trump's chances of defeating Hillary, then I will not vote for him for reelection to the Senate. This reeks of a banana republic or worse, Democrats. Cruz lost! Live with it. Don't do anything that makes it better for Clinton.

Cruz has a bright future in politics, but not if he goes along with this underhanded stuff.

Speaking of banana republic, on top of that there is a powder keg about to blow outside the convention center. Protesters are getting chippy.

I just read the same article maybe 15 minutes ago. I totally agree. Why blow apart the party now? This is just causing trouble at this point in the game.

Just as we keep hearing from Trump...the supporters are not the same as the candidate...
a – inside, from forces loyal to Ted Cruz mulling a procedural fight
Nothing in the news clip leads me to believe that Cruz has anything to do with it, any more than Trump has anything to do with some of the racist and antisemitic groups that have said they support him.

Agree 100%.

This is not what we need. I hope Cruz comes out and puts an end to this so that we can focus on that Hillary creature.

She has to be stopped.

Ted Cruz is scheduled to speak at the convention on Wednesday Prime Time.

Cruz is behind it. He and his "people" are in negotiations with the Chairman and the Trump campaign trying to get some concessions. Also, Cruz could bring it to a halt simply by saying "stop." He hasn't done it.

Police scanner is now revealing there are "heated" arguments on the convention floor.

My country has become an embarrassment.

I do not understand this. Trump will have a hard enough time winning. But if the Republican party puts somebody on the ticket other than Trump at this point on the game, you can call Hillary, Madam President. (I just threw up in my mouth a little)

I have never been a fan of Ted Cruz. I do like his stand on the second amendment. However, he generally has a political philosophy of "sinking the ship to get rid of the rats." Additionally, he stabbed fellow Republican John Cornyn in the back when he refused to endorse Cornyn in Cornyn's re-election bid and instead endorsed Cornyn's opponent. I do not know either man personally but I would assume their relations are "strained."

This all shows how divided and fractured the republican party is. This divisiveness has been festering for a long time. It now may be coming to a head and it will end up benefitting Clinton and the progressives.

Just like when it comes to many discussions regarding second amendment, everyone takes a hardline stand and all other opinions are flat wrong. Then it dengrates to the other point of view makes the other an enemy.

Our country and the republicans are divided and divided we fall.

I happened to watch a documentary on the Civil war yesterday, and was surprised to learn that when Lincoln was running for re-election, in the midst of the war, the Republicans tried to replace him on the ballot with someone else since they figured he had little to no chance of winning the general election against Mc Lelllan. Kind of reminded me of what is still going on today.

And Mike Lee. Both of which could be future conservative champions.
