That is NOT a minor slip - especially to those of us here in NYC who agonized through that day.
Was it a minor slip when he scammed the World Trade Center Business Recovery Grant program that was setup for small businesses affected by the tragedy?
That’s NY Mob Values for ya!
It wasn't even a slip. He was talking about the gas station chains and that's clear as day.
Here's another video of it, and it's a little better audio. Sounds like he says "down at a 7-11, down at the WTC," which isn't a flub by any stretch of the imagination.

I am a conservative Canadian, so I have no stake in the game. My favorite candidate is Cruz, and I hope he can win the nomination. However, if Trump does win, would people here not support him? The alternative would be Clinton. Wouldn’t people rather have Trump than Clinton? If people held their nose to support RINOs like Romney, or McCain before him…what is the difference? Also, is it wise conservatives to blackball other conservatives? Is the conservative movement in America that big that you would want to blackball half of it? Also, what if all is said and done, Trump names Cruz as his VP? My questions are not meant to upset anyone, I am just honestly curious.
Cruz us a natural born Canadian, ineligible to be an American POTUS

Message to any future Dylann Roof and future Vester Lee Flanagan….here is an idea. Instead of bringing innocent people into you sick, delusional world, why don’t you locate each other and have your own little private race war? Lock yourselves into a secluded room and go to town!! Who needs guns? Both of you can use blunt knives so the experience lasts longer!

Curt was correct. Curt then backtracked and apologized. Curt is no Trump.

Who the hell is deciding what is offensive? Pretty soon we will have our vocal cords ripped out in order not to offend people! You know what offends me? The crappy mainstream media offends me. The sooner people turn that crap off the better…
Right! And we can start by not calling them the "mainstream media". They are the Liberal Media and everyone knows it. Calling them "mainstream" implies that they represent a majority of Americans, which they certainly do not.

Why is Trump good? Because he forces the other candidates to either step up or step out. Any republican nominee who cowers to the media, political correctness, etc won’t win a general election anyway. Hopefully, Trump will force the other candidates to grow a pair. Otherwise there will be democrat presidents for the next 100 years because you know the establishment will continue to back RINOs every time.
I like Trump EXACTLY for the reasons in your post. But as a candidate, I just CANNOT take the guy seriously. He's ALWAYS been kind of a self aggrandizing schmuck, so that's not what bugs me about him. Its his history, as Glenn has correctly pointed out. Cruz & Walker remain my top 2, with Rubio being my "last resort."

How about SIX ARGUMENTS i can make in favor of THINKING FOR OURSELVES??
.....that is what the article is
How about you come up with an argument against the author's position

Ted Cruz did something that a liberal/democrat candidate would NEVER do. He listened to people who didn’t agree with him. #Respect

dad75, it really bothers me that people like you try to lump yourself in as a conservative. “She could have kept her black mouth shut”?? What kind of racist BS is that?
 July 22, 2015 at 9:48am
It upsets me when liberals make unreasonable comments, but I expect it. It upsets me more when I read unreasonable comments from conservatives. Why? Because I expect conservatives to use common sense. The officer is entirely in the wrong here. He escalated the situation. IT WAS A SIMPLE TRAFFIC STOP! Just give her the damn ticket and be done with it! Also, why is he drawing his gun? Does he intend to shoot the woman for not getting out of her car? This officer should be gone. Period. People there is no defense for this guy…

John McCain may have been courageous 40 years ago. However, he has been nothing but cowardly since. Trump resonates with people because he is showing courage NOW in the PRESENT by standing up to the fake mainstream media. He shows courage by saying SANE things when only INSANE things are tolerated.

Instead of wasting any and all unread Huffpo copies, I will now use it to cover up fish innards and place it “next to [my] garbage can in the Kitchen.”

@Verycobaltviolet Just a FYI, ISIS might actually have nukes (chemical weapons, etc) or be close to getting them, and all they would have to do is walk them across the southern border and plant them in a major city. Care to re-think your original statement yet?

I call BS. She kept the money. Guaranteed. Typical liberal, lie and the mindless drones will believe you without question…

You know what MEC, I don’t know what I would do if I had to share my country with a group like Hezbollah. And I know you can’t just boot them out. That must really suck. My point is that you can’t just throw all the blame on Israel. The likes of people in groups like Hezbollah are the same people who are the ones killing Christians. It just seems that you can’t reason with people like that! Christian are being killed because they face a choice: convert or die. What an unreasonable choice from unreasonable people. Imagine if Hamas decided it was time to stop fighting Israel. All that money being used right now to buy weapons on both sides could be used to rebuilding a nation of Palestine. Jews and Palestinians could live side by side in peace…but wait! We are dealing with Hamas and we know that will never happen. Convert or die! Push Israel into the sea! Unreasonable positions from people cut from the same cloth. If Israel didn’t exist, there is no doubt in my mind that Jews would be being slaughtered along side Christians (Jews who aren’t in the state of Israel are in fact being slaughtered). Lebanon used to be a majority Christian country (84% in 1926), what happened?
September 11, 2014 at 5:25pm
Before Hezbollah, you harboured the PLO! What is the difference between Hezbollah attacking Israel or the PLO attacking? If you poke a hornets nest you are going to get stung. And, honestly, all you are doing is making excuses for being anti-semetic. Stop attacking Israel. Stop harbouring terrorists who attack Israel. Let go of the irrational hate that you have for Israel. Then maybe there can be peace with Israel. Otherwise, this will never end. And sorry, but it will be Lebanon that loses this fight…true story.
September 11, 2014 at 5:18pm
So MiddleEasternChristian, if Hezbollah didn’t operate out of Lebanon, do you think Israel would be occupying portions of Lebanon? I am a Catholic from Canada, so I am not all rah rah Israel. However, this nonsense has to stop. I also know that Christians in Lebanon don’t fire the rockets, but Hezbollah does. Your fight should be against Hezbollah. Boot them out and maybe Israel doesn’t have any justification for occupying parts of Lebanon. This is on you! If Hezbollah did not operate in Lebanon, Israel would not have to occupy it.
 September 11, 2014 at 5:11am
I don’t agree with everything the government of Israel does. However, I do think that if you fire rockets into their territory, then you better expect a military response back. If you want to get along with Israel, then stop attacking them!
Brian you're talking about Palestinians, we're not there so we don't know which side started the attack. Let's talk about Israel's other neighbor, Lebanon, the only Middle Eastern country that has a Christian President. The country which has the most Christians population (about the half of the population is of christian religion)
And yet what did Israel do to this country since 1948 and until now. Read the history.
And yet there are some people here accuse us of hating Israel, and label us as not being Christians. Don't we have the freedom to pick who we love or hate ?
BTW I can't understand how such a senator uses a tragedy the Middle Eastern Christians are living in, to use it for his own benefit in his Presidential election campaign!
Lebanon attacked Israel in 1948. That's what history records. The PLO, attacking from Lebanon, started the next conflict after which Syria practically occupied the country. Today, the president barely even rules whole Syrian backed hezbollah controls half the country and has actively proofed war with israel.
I hope the so called Palestinians and their supporters get the 72 virgins. THEY DESERVE THEM.
