While most politicians run from situations where they will face boos, Trump is fearless. Imagine if Jesus avoided boos, he could have become King. Instead He chose to speak the truth without concern for consequences or the boos of the maddening crowds who cheered on his path to crucifixion.
I'll give Trump credit for that one, but I still don't support him for President. People are defined by what they do when no one is watching them or counting them out, not what they do when they are preaching to the choir.

If Glenn said it from his pretend Oval Office it must be true.
Remember Robert Di Nero in the basement of his moms house on King of Comedy?

I agree with the comment that the Carly would there to attack Trump and Cruz and pretty much leave Rubio alone. Her attacking Hillary campaign has not gained much traction. Would be fun watching.

Dana Loesch and Sarah Palin have almost no influence at this point. Their followers and fans have by now made up their minds. Rush Limbaugh by playing middle of the road still has a lot of sway.
February 4, 2016 at 5:09pm
Rush Limbaugh has declared him a certifiable conservative and no Establishment Republican for what it is worth. Rubio’s strategy is pretty obvious. There will be no money issues if Rubio does well as the alternative to the Trump/Cruz wrestling match among die hard/already declared supporters. The ideologues with their conservative measuring sticks by now have made their choices. The Trump hat crowd are also entrenched. Rubio sees a whole lot of undecideds and will play to them as the uniter, the guy heading for a bright shiny future for America. The nice guy conservative.

Donald Trump, master builder – about to tighten the sCruz on Ted.
[-3] February 4, 2016 at 12:51pm
Yes Ted you did build a win in Iowa but you left a lot of loose sCruz.
 February 4, 2016 at 12:01pm
Maybe I am the last to know this at the Blaze. Glenn Beck actually built a fake Oval Office for himself. Wow now that is just weird and one could go off on a lot of psychological speculations with that. What does it profit a man if he gains the Oval Office but loses his soul ?
You do understand it is part of his set...don't you? It's not his office.
I think his studio is really coo, I like it a lot!
 February 4, 2016 at 11:46am
I’m giving you a thumbs down because you only have 1. Now that the Trump/Cruz battles are in full force at the Blaze, the regular Blazers are so furiously thumbing each other down that it seems they sometimes ignore you. Oh well after November it will be back to business as usual at the Blaze unless Glenn’s kingdom melts down.
My response above was not directed at you. You successfully made your way through the minefield I laid. Bravo!
I'm not perfect. Gosh knows I love to artfully cuss libs...but they deserve it richly. But especially since Trump came along this place has become such a breeding ground for malcontent nincompoop brain starved flame throwers that I can't resist calling 'em out. Some of these people can't even spell "logic" much less define it. Feelings...They got feeeeelings..." Gimme a break. Total lib.
Cuss a lib and save a nation. Don't turn on each other or risk getting labeled as a lib in conservative's clothing. Yes indeed, a target rich environment!
I'm dying to getting back to strictly cussing libs...but there is much work to do here. Sigh.

Nice to see some Marco Rubio supporters. Welcome to the Trump/Cruz wrestling matches.
 February 4, 2016 at 11:21am
Of course if you are a die hard Cruz supporter and you hand is all set to pull the lever for him, you love this. But this just perpetuates the whole Cruz/Trump battles and divisiveness to the many undecided voters who are not much interested in ideological positions. Another excuse for the Cruz supporters to take a shot at the Donald while Donald supporters take their shots with the Carson situation. Meanwhile there is Marco Rubio enjoying it all from the peanut gallery. This race is not about fighting, it is about winning the hearts and minds of a whole lot of people who are only just starting to look at this Presidential run. This is the playoffs, the regular season is over and nobody cares who won the most games during the regular season. Its a whole new ball game.,
Nilap, as a Cruz and Carson supporter, I totally agree with what you've said. Even though we each want our guy or gal* to win the GOP nomination, the object is never to beat each other half to death so there's nothing left for defeating the Hillary team between June and November. We all must come together after June! UNITED WE STAND
*Carly has had a couple of very good moments, she looks like she could be a Maggy Thatcher-type, but her emphasis on gender just doesn't go over with us as it would for DEMs--maybe we'll see her again in the future...

Quite frankly Rubio, Cruz and Trump – none have any accomplishments that benefit the average American. Now Ted has won some ideologue battles in the Senate that please die hard conservatives. But that will get Ted only so many votes. Americans want someone that will make them feel good about the future. Trump says I will giving you winning. Rubio says I am young and fresh and have a positive message. Ted says hey I am the most conservative and I love Jesus. OK we shall see what the rest of them Americans want. Who knows maybe they want socialism.
A lot of surprises to look forward to.
This is why Governors make the best Presidents but in today's political environment they are all power hungry or wealthy which casts a further divide between them and the average American. So they all take to lying or storytelling to try and make you believe they "understand your pain"...
didn't Cruz win 5 cases before the Supreme Court as Texas Solicitor General? I just read a few of them. They seem to be substantial issues, especially the 2nd Amendment in District of Columbia vs Heller and Medellín v. Texas. Some nice reading.
Rubio was all over the Jesus angle this last debate. I think that's why his numbers were so high in Iowa.

I see this Carson situation as Trump and the Cruz campaign making amateurish political mistakes – where Rubio benefits as the uniter and the guy with clean hands looking forward to the future. Now it is still early in the Presidential playoffs so we will see how each camp learns from their mistakes. Who is jumping for joy as winners of it all after a game and who is focused and has the eye on the prize. The regular season is over. Who won that does not count.
Except Rubios people did the same thing, but the media is protecting him.

Glenn Beck you diminish yourself spiritually when you sing the praises of Steve King. I get George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. and Ronald Reagan, but the silly season of Presidential politics makes people say the darnedest things.
Steve King is one of the good guys, but I may be wasting my time trying to make sure that some of the voters in this election are better informed. When Trump becomes the King, then maybe you will believe what I had to say was the truth.

Cautionary tale: How many times has a professional sports team won the regular season and been picked to go all the way to the i.e. World Series or Stanley Cup – only to lose in the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs. Donald Trump won the regular season hands down. But once voters start voting, it is a different ball game. I say this as a Trump supporter – Its a different game now. This is not like winning the ratings of a TV show. There is a different dynamic going on now in this the playoffs leading to the nomination. You start to see rookie mistakes. Trump has made some and Cruz has made some. The whole Carson situation – amateurish on the part of Steve King and the Cruz staff. Those kind of dirty (but not illegal) tricks cannot work in the internet age. Everyone knows about it the next day if not sooner. Now I believe Ted did not know about it and I get why he cannot fire anybody – it would hurt moral and bottom line it was not illegal. Still again we are in the playoffs and someone like a Marco Rubio who is not caught up in the battles between Trump and Cruz and their supporters – he could have the best playoff strategy emerging as the uniter not the divider.
It is not the die hard Trump or Cruz supporters that count – we all know who we will be voting for. It is that big undecided group of voters who don’t like politics and all the divisiveness that it entails. I think Laura Ingraham got it right when she warned about the Trump/Cruz bickering giving Rubio the edge.

The Ted Cruz Campaign staff represents the hypocritical wing of the Christian faith for what they did. People who put politics before values. Oh I love Jesus I love Jesus but hey politics has its own set of values and one of them is to hit the Pause Button on Jesus.
Moron! Read the two comments right above you! It's a transcript, but not of a Cruz campaign person, FROM CNN....
You're an idiot

Ted Cruz should hire Rick to keep his staff in line make sure they follow Biblical principles in their actions.

Jesus came over to America via the influx of Europeans with their Bibles and various interpretations of who Jesus was. Jesus will one day return to America with his two helpers Mary Magdalene and Thomas. This time the real Jesus who spoke about our two spirits that we all have male and female in the Gospel of Thomas. Jesus who spoke of Heaven NOT a Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus will come with his Elder Brother, the Peacemaker with his two helpers Jigonsaseh and Hiawatha who first came to the Iroquois with His Way of Peace and whose teachings inspired the Founding Fathers albeit unknowingly. Freedom of religions, liberty, peace through strength, equality of men and women, no slavery or monarchs. Their light is One.
As America or Turtle Island once was where men and women openly gay or straight in peace and harmony looked at the rising of the Sun over the Atlantic and watch it disappear in beauty over the Pacific. From sea to shining sea.
