Pence Gives Boost to GOP Prospects

   Who knew Mike Pence ?  The 57 year old Indiana governor and one time radio talk show host accepted the GOP nomination for VP and in the process delivered a crafted and well delivered speech giving the nation its first look at him and its first articulation of the Donald Trump candidacy.
     Decrying Hillary Clinton as "secretary of the status quo," Governor Pence delivered the goods and showed he is a force in adancing the Trump candidacy.
      Earlier in the evening, Senator Ted Cruz delivered a self serving but well delivered screed advancing his 2020 ambitions while refusing to endorse Mr. Trump. Much of the hall booed.
     All eyes will fall on Mr. Trump Thursday night as he accepts the nomination for President and theTrump-Pence ticket is off and running as Democrats ready their pageant in Philadelphia.

"The House Always Wins: Mr. Trump a former Casino owner, played Ted Cruz in a game of, Convention 'Hold'em Poker' by letting Sen. Ted Cruz overplay his hand! Cruz turns out to be a big loser, by failing to endorse, leading to raucous booing!" Mike Flynn 'Middle Class Mike'

And once again Mr. Cruz stuck to principle regardless of what it cost him. The first rule of politics is the guy you are running against is fair game, BUT YOU LEAVE THEIR FAMILY OUT OF IT!!!!! Donald Trump violated that rule by insulting Mr. Cruz's wife. It is a sad time in our history, indeed, when principled men are made out to be villains and political whores are made heroes of.

Wonder how some of those raking Cruz over the coals this morning would have reacted if it had been THEIR wife whom Trump insulted??

"I like Mike".
Trump is a genius without a doubt. He picked the perfect veep. Not only does Pence have the perfect looks for the job, but he has the perfect stage presence and speaking ability. You will not see this man committing the gaffs that other folliclelly challenged veeps are known for.

Will Trump nominate Cruz to the Court? If he does, you will hear the MSN compare Trump to Lincoln, for appointing his former foes to political positions. Right? Right?

But then , he went toal batshit crazy telling us his hero was Ronnie . ROnnie ran the federal deficit into the stratusphere during his term , s. PEnce being the so called fiscal conservative must have failed historyor didnt read Stockmans book about how Ronnoes trickle down economics was a fraud and simply was voo doo economics . STockman for thise of you too youngto know or too stupid to remember was RONNIES own Budget GURU ....again you cant make this shit up

Then Ronnie and his Neocons went toal whackjob and declared war ONthedamn FALKLAND Islands . Ever heard of then ... Really strategic stuff there Tonnie . Nancy must have gotten a tip from her Astrologist that the penguins and puffins there in the Falklands were in distress

Then Ronnie effed up with Neocons again by bloating the budget deficit with his over the top STAR WARS DEFENSE syatem , that some military industrial greed hog friends o Ronnies made $$$$$$$$ on . And now today we are still paying for the mess this senile old fool started back inthe 80's

8:59, you still have to explain to us how voting for a proven criminal is in our interests. In your case, this is not a sign of ignorance, it's a sign of blind loyalty to a political party. Don't tell us you went to the same leadership school as the hero on the golf course?

I need to explain nothing to you 1137. I have never claimed allegiance to any candidate. You continue to assume I'm a dem, though I've never stated so. I support neither Trump or Clinton. They are BOTH liars, frauds and crooks.

P.S. I don't golf, I'm a keggler...

10:43, you can select whatever spin you want from the Reagan years, but you have to include the inconvenient fact that under him, the old Soviet Union collapsed. Under your muzlim liar in chief, they have been reborn. Under the Pants Suit, they will only be required to contribute to the Clinton Foundation before they steamroll some small nation. You are such a dumbass. Judging from the condition of your panties, you were likely a great Jimma Carter fan too.
