Well, that was an interesting read in the paper this morning! It got me to go to the video.
As of right now, three things seem clear, at least to me.
- Fat Crybaby planned to sandbag Senator Cruz. The yelling from the New York delegation was less than spontaneous.
- Senator Cruz was hoping to rile up the crowd. To see that, you need to watch the video, with the pregnant pauses highlighting the fact that the Senator was not endorsing the nominee. In other words, the New York yelling might have been planned by the nominee, but it was exactly what the Senator was hoping to get.
- Fat Crybaby lost the battle of convention strategies. The spin is that Senator Cruz martyred himself for constitutional rule.
The mystery is why none of this seems to be reflected in the poll numbers. Hillary is still ahead of the fat crybaby from Queens, but the GOP really does seem to be getting a bounce out of this thing.
Fat Crybaby from Queens is showing just what a disaster he would be as president. Today, he said that he would ignore NATO:
For example, asked about Russia’s threatening activities that have unnerved the small Baltic States that are among the more recent entrants into NATO, Mr. Trump said that if Russia attacked them, he would decide whether to come to their aid only after reviewing whether those nations “have fulfilled their obligations to us.”

Now note that his mouthpiece, Chris Christie, has stated that President Drumpf would try to end civil service protection and allow businesspeople to serve in government without resigning their positions, let alone putting their assets into a blind trust.
Gah. Here I am, admiring Senator Cruz for doing the right thing.
