Yeah I didn’t think your comment really deserved the downvoting it got, but I do have to say whenever I’ve periodically tuned into Hannity lately he always seems to be defending Trump, and it has gradually gotten more and more obvious. To be honest it really surprised me too. Maybe if you listen every day the gradual shift would not have been as noticeable as it is if you just hear periodic “snapshots.” Perhaps overall, until more recently, Sean had treated Cruz like he usually would, but by becoming an apologist for Trump and always giving Trump softball interviews it becomes unfair to Cruz in comparison. Then of course when Sean starts to parrot Trump talking points in his interviews of Cruz it’s obvious he’s gone way over the line.

My interpretation was “Why doesn’t Sean block Trump from talking in vague circles around an answer the way he usually does (AKA, bloviating) and pin him down to get some more specific responses?”
Yeah, I too wish that interviewers would challenge Trump to reveal the specific details of his grand plans. I think he’s all talk and really doesn’t have many fully formulated ideas other than to appoint “the best people” to solve all the problems.

Hannity’s stances during this primary season have surprised and really disappointed me. I think I have heard him mention on air that he has become pretty good friends with Trump over the years, so I think he’s let that friendship cloud his judgment and badly skew his objectivity. If you’re good friends with someone I guess it would be hard to ask them the tough questions that you know they’ll stumble over answering, as Trump is prone to doing. Trump seems like he’d be the kind of “friend” that would get all hurt and whiny if Sean actually grilled him. It seems that Sean is willing to sacrifice his principles rather than risk sacrificing his friendship. I wouldn’t envy having to make that kind of choice, but making the wrong choice has cost him the loss of a lot of people’s respect.
I think you can throw Rush in there too. He's too close to Donnie to be objective.
Fish, Hannity not only doesn't ask Trump any hard questions, he even prompts Trump on the easy ones he stumbles on. It is sickening, and to think that at one time I respected this man.

The GOP is not who I identify with, it’s conservatism and individualism. For many years now, the GOP on the whole has no longer been representing or advancing most of what I strongly believe in. We need to be the ones who act and make ourselves heard, but I’m not so sure the GOP will be the conduit for us. We shall see how this election goes.

I would pay to watch him legally hand those idiots their a$$es. It should be made into a reality show to raise money to fight back against these bully AGs abusing their power.

This is doubleplusgood news, don’t you agree comrade? Say, have you heard the latest Miniplenty report that they are increasing our chocolate ration to twenty grams? I could have sworn that it had previously been at thirty grams, but of course I must have remembered incorrectly. To believe otherwise would be no less than thoughtcrime!

Whatever a bunch of senators who get together and have to say about Cruz’s citizenship is irrelevant. It would hold no force of law, Constitutional authority, nothing. So that’s not going to happen, nor should it.
Cruz’s eligibility is not “going to have to be officially resolved” because it is resolved and always was for the vast, vast majority of us who understand that the child of a U.S. citizen is a U.S. citizen. It’s that simple, and it should be that simple, shouldn’t it?

To those who keep bringing up the inane, irrelevant non-issue regarding Ted Cruz’s citizenship status:
There have already been several court cases challenging Cruz’s citizenship and all have been thrown out. And they all will be.
But what does it matter that Cruz took out a loan (and already repaid it, by the way)? So now you have to be independently wealthy to be a trustworthy politician? I think history has shown over and over again that that isn’t true. Greed for power and greed for money don’t ever become satiated, no matter how much of it you amass.
He did not report the loan. 1 of 2 he did not report. Hmmm...

Um… Conservative Review wasn’t around when Joe Scarborough was in Congress.

I just don’t understand. Whether or not you support Cruz or Trump you’d think Sessions’ conservative principles would line up more squarely with Cruz. It’s very hard to know who you can count on anymore.
Sessions is a great man, and now many are going to throw away everything he has done and will do, because they don't like who he endorsed? This is ludicrous! Perhaps the fact he endorsed Trump should send a message to you guys. No, not that he is some sort of plant or turncoat or w/e. Maybe he saw something many here have refused to see... Sessions has my vote. Trump/Sessions 2016

Yep, thanks for your $0.02, kook. Now go fade back into relative obscurity.

I’m a Cruz supporter and I would vote for Trump if he ends up being the nominee. I certainly don’t want a Democrat to win. You said you wish we weren’t so divided but then you painted all Cruz supporters with a broad brush rather quickly. I have seen plenty of Trump supporters who say there’s no way they would vote for Cruz. Whatever. All I can do is try to convince people using persuasive logical arguments and in the end they’ll do whatever they think is right, just as I will.

Well, apparently the Pastafarian thing (wearing a colander on your head) was started by an atheist. @SyberianOrion several posts above this one posted 2 news story links.

Don’t worry, it just plays music in custom stations based on related themes with an occasional ad. It’s free and you get to skip several songs an hour if you don’t like them…

Good for you, sir! Thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country.

Nah, why would he spend so much of his own money just to hand it over to Cruz? I think he really wants the job, but I do think that Cruz’s consistent conservatism will propel him to the top eventually.
 December 16, 2015 at 11:34pm
Or maybe they’re both just savvy enough to have individually figured out that it wouldn’t benefit them to snipe at each other. One big hole in his theory is that Trump did criticize Cruz last weekend, inexplicably siding with the Republican establishment by saying Cruz didn’t know how to play nice in the Senate. Cruz took the high road and did the Twitter equivalent of laughing it off. But Trump took a lot of heat for it on Levin and Rush’s radio shows, so I think he realized it wasn’t a tactic that would win him any additional supporters.

I can think of no greater Christmas present that she could have given to her community than stepping down.
@aventine and @fsandlewould: I think you underestimate Cruz. A media caricature which has never been anywhere close to an accurate depiction of the man will mean nothing when Cruz is seen publicly mopping the floor with Hillary, Bernie, or whatever joker wins the Democrat nomination. The man is not only extremely intelligent with a steel-trap memory, but I contend in dealing with the media and opponents he knows exactly what his strategy is and how he comes off publicly, much like Reagan knew how to handle the media. In terms of sounding “too smart” for the average American voter I also have to disagree. He knows how to resonate with the concerns of the general public and has an extremely common-sense approach to these issues. You should notice that unlike most politicians when he’s asked a question he gives a direct answer and does not shy away from convincingly explaining his positions which the media tries to paint as “extreme.” Whereas Trump is not afraid of the media or opponents due to sheer confidence regardless of his knowledge base, Cruz is not afraid of the media or opponents because he knows more than they do, knows he’s right, and can explain his position fully so that anyone can understand if they have an open mind. You see how people love it when Trump slams his detractors – I say that given the spotlight Cruz will be able to top that because he’ll always have the ammunition to win any argument.
