America has always been an exceptional nation. Our Founding Fathers created a system of government that has protected our liberty, allowed American ingenuity to flourish, and lifted people out of poverty by creating the conditions for opportunity and prosperity. Unfortunately, years of bad policies and poor leadership have weakened our position in the world. Under a Trump administration, America will once again be a beacon of progress and opportunity.

Looks like some great speakers! Nervous about Cruz, he’d better not do anything to undermine Trump. CNN had a couple of guests who claim to know that Cruz will not endorse. I hope like hell they are wrong, but I fear they are right. We shall see.....
The man is a two bit intellectual, who jumped into the primaries years ahead of schedule. He’s a flame out.
To be sure, he will make a complete ass out of himself. It will be the all about me speech. We’ll see how it compares with Walker and Rubios.
I was for Cruz, if he’s not going to endorse he shouldn’t have accepted the invitation and he won’t have my vote in the future.
I was for Cruz n the primaries, but now I’m hoping he will jump on the Make America Great again train and be uplifting. Even if he doesn’t FORMALLY endorse, at least it could bring up all together as a party just by his presence. We’ll see.
I have a negative opinion of Cruz, so I don’t expect to witness anything good from him. It’ll be interesting to see how he handles himself. I wonder how much saboteur will come out? And used to think he was a rising star. But, then again, isn’t Satan referred to as morning star somewhere?
Good Night/Morning nikos!
Another great thread. Thanks. Looking forward to Laura Ingraham. Hoping Cruz calls in sick.
I heard Glenn Beck say that if Cruz endorses Trump he will feel disenfranchised as a voter. Beck has also said Cruz is struggling with his decision as to what to do. “We will see if Cruz honors his pledge to uphold the constitution or his pledge to support the nominee.”
Oh my what a line up! Another good evening ahead !
when does Pence speak?
Breakfast celebration is being served all morning long. :-)
Hotpot wifi is working. Yay!
I'm surprised that Cruz got a speaking slot without a quid pro quo agreement to endorse the Trump ticket.
I sure as heck wouldn't have agreed to that.
Also, supposedly he will give a speech that has not been vetted and approved by the RNC or the Trump campaign.
Again, I wouldn't give him that latitude because I don't think he can be trusted.
Although I started out enthusiastically supporting Cruz, his conduct during the campaign convinced me that he was not trustworthy.
He has shown himself to be a spoiler and made it all about Cruz not about America. for that reason I wouldn't trust him on prime-time TV unless there was a prior agreement to endorse Trump and unless his speech was vetted and approved.
He can’t endorse Trump or Glenn Beck will be soooooooooo upset.
“Beck said, I will tell you if that if Ted Cruz comes out and what is it Monday or Tuesday night when he gives his speech and he endorses, even a soft endorsement of Donald Trump I will officially have no person in that I can trust says what they mean and mean what they say.”
The butt hurt continues.
Anyone have a link to DJT Jr’s speech from last night?
