    . . . because he won't fight. It's why McCain lost, and why Romney lost, and why Hillary will win.

    “[Clinton's campaign staff] fight like it matters to them,” D’Souza said on The Glenn Beck Program. “They’re in a knife fight, not a chess match, and we have to up our game.”

    D’Souza even went on to say he “respects” the former secretary of state’s campaign.

    “I respect their ruthlessness,” D’Souza said. “If you look at Hillary, her political strategy is to doggedly move ahead and dare everybody else to bludgeon her to the ground and sit on her, otherwise she’s going to keep moving — you’ve got to respect that.”

    Did the fat lady sing? Donald is the one in trouble against Hillary according to the polls. Donald is the novice like Palin was in 2008.

    It's not comparable because there was a 3rd party candidate in 1980 that was siphoning votes away from Carter. Eventually John Anderson voters defected to Reagan.

    Cruz, the man who almost single-handedly shut down the US government in an effort to repeal ObamaCare, doesn't have a fight in him?

    Cruz, the guy that kept telling Iowans, against their own interests, that he opposed the Federal ethanol mandates?

    Cruz, the guy that wants to "carpet bomb" ISIS until the desert glows?

    Cruz, the guy that will tear up the Iranian nuclear accord? Destroy the IRS? End funding for Planned Parenthood?

    This is the guy that doesn't fight?

    Cruz won't win because nobody on the GOP ticket can win. It's a numbers game. There simply are more people who will readily vote for the Democrat than will vote Republican.

    You can thank the true country divisionists in the GOP for this. I believe I said after the 2012 election that the GOP obviously isn't planning on winning another Presidential election for a while because the REAL country divisionists in the party have done everything they can to ramp up the war of THEM("Liberal"Black and Brown people of the Dem Party) vs US(old, politically "conservative" white guys who they believe represent the base of the GOP).

    And they have shown the world just how racist, racially prejudiced, nasty, and mean this base of the GOP really is. And the Body of Christ needs to be moving with a swiftness to disassociate itself with BOTH parties and their politics.

    Let's see, the Democrats owned the slaves in the solid south, the Democrats started the KKK, one of whom just endorsed Hillary and not a word was said about it, the Democrats started Jim Crow, and the Democrats are the ones for same-sex marriage, and the Democrats have a pro-choice plank in their platform. And even Bill Clinton said that the last seven years have been awful for America.

    And the GOP prison industrial complex courtesy of the Southern Strategy took up the mantle.

    And the GOP has since taken it over.

    While a myriad of others wait in line in support of TrumpWhistling
    The GOP perfected things with James Crow, ESQ.

    The Republicans are tapping their feet under bathroom partitions.
    And the GOP has a pro-choice murder adults in theirs.

    Because of an obstructionist do nothing GOP Congress.Thumbsup

    He's running a pretty wimpy campaign. Seen one of his rallies? Heard many of his speeches?

    When the world needs to hear straight talk about opposing Islam with deadly force, Ted cries.

    Haven't seen any rallies. Have heard snippets of speeches. Have seen him on a CNN town hall.

    He's not giving into the anger and the yelling like Trump and Hillary.

    In an another interview, Trump also said he would be "fine" with waterboarding Salah Abdeslam, one of the leaders of the Paris attacks several months ago who was just captured in Brussels, in order to get more information on potential future attacks.

    "Well I'm not looking to break any news on your show, but frankly the waterboarding, if it was up to me, and if we changed the laws or have the laws, waterboarding would be fine," the Republican front-runner said on NBC's "Today" show. "I would say they should be able to do whatever they have to do."

    "You know, we work within laws. They don't work within laws -- they have no laws. We work within laws. The waterboarding would be fine, and if they could expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding," he said.

    If I were a citizen in Brussels, I would welcome Trump's comment and roll my eyes at Cruz's.

    Sure, Trump said he would waterboard, kill the children and spouses of terrorists. When he was told that military leaders wouldn't follow his orders he flip-flopped the next day and said he wouldn't ask the military to do such things.

    So who fights for their beliefs? Ted Cruz, Or flip-flop Trump?

    Everything we know about him to date says otherwise.

    Again, had any Islamic group claimed responsibility at that point? What exactly should Cruz have said if he nor anyone else knew who was responsible? The authorities in Brussels didn't say who was responsible, so why should Cruz start talking about opposing Islam? That would just be dumb and not the sort of thing a measured LEADER would do.

    Presidents don't need to be hotheaded. But that apparently doesn't matter to this growing group of Trump supporters who think "say whatever" even when it's irrelevant and dangerous.
