or is Trump HIS OWN WORST ENEMY for having accused Senator Ted Cruz’s father of associating with Lee Harvey Oswald; making disparaging remarks about Cruz's wife and for having falsely accused Cruz's father of having ties to Castro, and for never having apologized to him? Ted Cruz actually gave an excellent speech, but did not specifically "endorse" Trump per se. And in usual form, Trump tweeted disparaging remarks about Cruz afterward. What are your thoughts on this entire situation? Do you support Trump or Senator Cruz?

Perhaps so, but remember that before the Media even got involved, the audience booed Cruz. Then the media had a field day. Had Trump chosen to be gracious, he could have unified the party. In my opinion, Trump still owes Cruz some apologies.
I agree with that.
What apologies are owed should be Cruz to Trump, and the republican party. What apologies are you talking about?
Brad.....Read my opening statement.
One third of Republican voters are on the fence. I was ready to vote for Trump until I witnessed the disdain oozing from Ivanka Trump as well as the un-called for booing at the end of Cruz's excellent speech. So I disagree, partially.
Wow, really savy, you were on the fence? Okay, I stand corrected. I've not watched any of the convention, but have been getting snippets from the news, so I wasn't aware that Ivanka was so unappetizing; you're the first I've heard mention it.
Trump is brash and blunt. He doesn't suffer fools lightly. Recall Cruz' ad demeaning Mrs. Trump. Cruz' pledge to support the party nominee was the cause of the boos. He didn't.
False. Cruz did not demean Melania Trump, http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/03/31/jake...
"Trump is brash and bold". Yes, and he's a child. He reminds me of kids back in elementary school: bullying, insulting, degrading. He's insulted leaders of foreign countries ALREADY for the love of Pete. Gosh, can't wait till he's in office.
Trump's ego is massive. I do like Pence, though....but he would be the VP---big difference, unless Trump hands him the job while he hobnobs with celebrities and such. Sigh. Wish I could believe in Trump, but he's not giving me enough reassurance...
I cannot put as much faith in the unknown. Trump is a wildcard. Maybe he will deliver and maybe not. All I know is that I do not appreciate his penchant for humiliating people.
Trump may be the only chance to change this year's outcome, but I question whether it's for the better. The French wanted "change", and the revolution eventually went south - no principles to maintain it. Obummer was change.......
Senator Obama promised us change, and we got it, in Spades. Hillary is Obama 1.1 not even 2.0.
Humiliating people, isn't that what Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Paul Ryan did with Trump. Hillary Clinton speeches are much more vicious than all the others.
Hxprof, I cringe at the word "change" only because that is what Obama promised.
Brad... Cruz, Kasick & Ryan did not humiliate Trump. Rather, they told the truth about him.
What Truth about Trump did any of them tell?
I hear you and I was ready to vote for Trump because of Pence. Trump saw the speech beforehand. He knew what to expect. He could have turned this around in his favor. Cruz was there for the Party, even if he did not use Trump's name.
Yes Demas, we got change with Obummer, and it's been awful. Trump promises change also, and though I agree with a few of his policies, overall I believe him to be a dangerous road to change. Cruz was the far better choice for altering the landscape
Cruz and Kasich are both disgraceful&poor losers. The Republican Voters told them they wanted Trump. people are the party, but loyal party voters don't fair well against the party. choice now is Hillary or Trump. Hillary had her chance, dn do wel
Well, the choice for me is Trump, Clinton or Neither. I choose neither. I won't participate in helping to elect either unacceptable candidate. The 2 party system has indeed been our bane, and look where it's led us!
I don't know that the US can stand such scruples. Being a conscientious objector, how Bill Clinton.
How 'me' brad, how me. I've been like this long before Clinton claimed that mantle. If being an objector means rejecting 2 candidates who are unfit for office, then that's ME.
