Not sure how you vet this. Would she put it on her resume? (I think not). Most of these things are brought up by someone who recognizes the resemblance from a film. Can’t know what you don’t know. (Shades of Marilyn Chambers/Ivory Snow!)

Not a fan of open carry. You give away the element of surprise.

Disagree totally. “Slave owners” ? Okay. So now you’ve got your freedom. Can’t change the past, but you sure can leave.
‘Cop suddenly taking out after kid.’ Okay, but what I hear from blacks is that they resent even being stopped and questioned…Obama took out after Boston police (“acted stupidly”) when the cop was doing his job. We heard months of ‘hands up don’t shoot’ and “Gentle Giant”–lies. The DOJ tried to hang Zimmerman and the Ferguson cop. Black on white violence is the norm. Black on black violence is epidemic. Having unprotected sex then walking away isn’t anything we forced on the black community. Maybe what looks like white privilege is actually personal accountability, cultural norms and traditions, upbringing, and lack of scapegoating. Try it, you might like it.

Had been excited about Trump…a defender…but his personal attacks on Cruz made me stop & re-assess. Who doesn’t need a conservative’s Senate support? A non-conservative, that’s who. The eminent domain guy. An ethanol-subsidies/gov’t handout guy. A longtime contributor to Dem legislators. He’s going to ‘deal’? How? Either through gov’t perks (growing gov’t), surrendering the conservative principles he pays lip service to, or championing liberal causes. I don’t find any of those acceptable.
 January 26, 2016 at 10:02pm
Ooooo, not a good idea. Cruz is a champion debater with what Alan Dershowitz called one of the finest minds he’d ever seen. Trump is all about bluster, hyperbole, and the GOP playbook of talking conservative-tough to get elected.
That one I'd pay to see. Preferably with no mods. Head to head. Trump loves Trump. Cruz loves the US.
The Trump lemmings are as bad as the Obama lemmings were.

Yeah Danny. Doesn’t it make you mad enough….to leave?
 January 24, 2016 at 7:53pm
Danny: …racists who apparently elected a black man twice, are subject to 2 A-A attorneys general, have had 2 A-A secretaries of state, UN ambassadors and joint chiefs, have had black SCOTUS justices, make billionaires of black athletes, rappers, actors, have TV shows, networks, and awards specifically for blacks….so I don’t get it.

Additional questions: What lead to the epiphany that the liberals you’d been supporting are no longer good for America? When exactly was this? When was your last contribution to a Democrat or liberal cause? How much have you given to conservative causes in the last 2 years? How can we tell your conversion is genuine if there’s been no historic action? Reconcile stances on bank bailouts with smaller, less intrusive gov’t.
 January 23, 2016 at 12:45am
No doubt Trump could do some good, but people need to figure out why they vote for the guy. If you want a champion of conservative principles, he’s untested. But he has supported liberals heavily, and favors liberal policies. Scares me too much to take that kind of chance. Obama was similarly untested in ’08…spoke of uniting us, for DOMA, fine with ‘don’t ask/don’t tell.’ Yeah. That’s what someone with no track record can sound like.
 January 22, 2016 at 4:03am
And, Marnin, Trump throwing Cruz under the bus tells me Trump doesn’t figure on needing conservative support in the Senate, tipping me off that Donald is scamming us. Then he tried to snow evangelicals with his Christianity, only to blow the Corinthians reference. Likes eminent domain and bailouts. If he wants to cut deals, there are only 2 things he can do: hand out gov’t favors, or trade away conservative positions (which don’t mean anything to him anyhow).
 January 22, 2016 at 3:51am
What’s Trump done to demonstrate his embracing of conservative views? I said, “done,” not “talked about.” Obama talked about uniting us in ’08, earning our trust, going through the budget line by line.. I see too many people falling for talk rather than action or history.
 January 22, 2016 at 3:47am
RDG; depends on whether you’re a conservative or not. No doubt Trump would restore a consistency to foreign policy, but have no idea what to expect on social and economic issues, since he talks the GOP talk of conservatism but has been anything but historically: for bailouts, gov’t subsidies, eminent domain for private profiteering, giving large sums to extreme Dems (like Schumer). Apparently he doesn’t feel he’ll need conservative votes in the Senate or he wouldn’t be stabbing Cruz in the back. Seems to be a typical big gov’t, big business advocate, maybe no different than ‘W’ or Jeb. Apparently, a lot of people are okay with that, which seems inconsistent.
 January 21, 2016 at 11:53pm
I”m all for the cage-rattling…the dismantling of the dysfunctional GOP party apparatus. But Cruz has already acted like that warrior; Trump is talk, with a history of embracing the opposite. And I’d bet you Trump will sell out to the McConnells and Boehners quickly, that’s why he won’t need Cruz’s support in the Senate. He’s using the GOP playbook: campaign conservative, talk tough, get votes, then business as usual.
Why would he sell out to those that hate him the most? That's not logical. What does he have to gain? He's already leading by huge margins everywhere. Why are they so against him if they already know he's going to sell out to them. Again, not a logical argument at all.
 January 21, 2016 at 11:41pm
What so-called conservative is going to cheap shot Cruz with personal attacks as he is doing? Ans: Someone who isn’t going to need conservative support in the Senate (or House). Passing himself off as religious, he blew the Corinthians reference. Then I noticed his lengthy list of donations to Dems & liberal causes…remembered he was an advocate of ‘eminent domain’ for private profiteering, and realized he is an untested conservative, a dubious convert to principles he’s never known to have embraced. A NY, Big Business, wheeler dealer and salesman with numerous corporate BKs under his belt. He’s your 2008 Obama…promises, rhetoric, a Pied Piper, and untested…with his own agenda and a past he wants to reframe or downplay. Can almost guarantee McConnell, Graham, and maybe McCain will be singing his praises before it’s over. Enjoy!
You are so dumb, it's almost painful to read your post. Everyone is now less intelligent thanks to your contribution. GO AWAY.
 January 21, 2016 at 8:55pm
REAL easy for me to write these off as hit-pieces since there’s no across the board equal treatment. Cruz stood alone and battled not only the other party but his own RINO leadership. What conservative trashes Cruz with cheap shots? Ans: A non-conservative who won’t need Cruz’s conservative Senate support. You can support Trump, just know what you’re getting….and don’t cry that you were mislead. He’s as untested in conservatism as Obama was in leadership in ’08;
January 20, 2016 at 10:00pm
Convinced Trump is a false prophet. A person painting himself a conservative would not attack a fellow true conservative (Cruz), support eminent domain for privateering, talk up gov’t subsidies, then–while portraying himself as religious–blow the Corinthians reference. Trump is untested. Cruz walked the talk.
Could it be Trump doesn’t figure on needing conservative votes in the Senate? And what if Mr. Wheeler Dealer decides that the way to get things done is to surrender conservative positions (the ones he never championed until just months ago?)
 January 20, 2016 at 9:41pm
I’d like to take this more seriously, but the juvenile nature of it is telling, as is the timing of this.
 January 20, 2016 at 6:03pm
Except Cruz risked his career by standing up against his own party when party hacks were selling us out by becoming Dems.
 January 20, 2016 at 6:00pm
After supporting Trump for months I am convinced he is the false prophet. A conservative would not cheap shot Cruz, pander to evangelicals by muffing a Biblical reference, support gov’t subsidies…in short, I’m suspicious of this sudden conversion to conservatism. He’s as untested as Obama was in ’08, you know, the uniter, the guy who promised to go thru the budget line by line, who told us there weren’t blue states and red states but UNITED states, who promised to earn the trust of non-supporters, who was for marriage between one man and one woman, whose mentor was a pastor….
Your are missing the whole point, IT NOT ABOUT CONSERVATIVE VS LIBERAL ANYMORE. The definitions of these are so messed up by politicians they are completely meaningless.
What has any conservative candidate done for the conservative cause lately? Show me the list of accomplishments? The conservative majorities in Congress are completely meaningless they accomplish nothing. People on this site label all views as PROGRESSIVE at some point in time.
If you are or have been a part of government you bear the shame and responsibility for putting the country in the state of failure that it is now in. Some of us see Ted Cruz as a very nice guy but soiled by the fact that he has been part of the problem, he has very little to show in the way of accomplishments. What group of Senators has he leading that offered some legislation or been a part of any coalition that actually blocked anything, yet he wants a position of greater responsibility?
We who support Trump are supporting a bloodless revolution of government that can only be lead by someone who is not a part of the current mess we are in. Cruz lack the moral authority to lead this “revolution”.
 January 20, 2016 at 5:50pm
OK DT: by the same token: where was Trump? (A: giving $$$ to Pelosi, Reid, other Dems, while advocating eminent domain?) 1st: WERE he to have proposed impeachment, and it died in the House (understandable, since Boehner would’ve killed it), you’d be griping he shot his face off without having his ducks in a row. I think you’re a fraud.
