All types of corruption need to end. Two wrongs don't make a right.

So far it appears that money cannot always buy happiness!

And we all know why it won't end in Washington, there'll be finger pointers on both sides of the aisle saying "You end YOUR corruption first!"

But it doesn't stop the idiots who believe it can from trying, eh?

Also..isn't Tim Cook the Apple CEO gay?....wouldn't Ted Cruz be worse on that issue?

I doubt Trump cares about stuff like that as much...but Cruz I'd be scared about what he would do.

[MOD CUT/off topic]


Also these guys are business people and Trump is the most pro business guy. It just seems bizarre they would participate in this little pow wow orchestrated by Karl Rove..

I hope the anti-Trumpers aren't okay with something happening to him mysteriously. If they are, I officially don't understand that kind of hate for this man.

That organization has regularly scheduled meetings. This meeting was different, in that, the subject matter raised some eyebrows.

It's starting:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...uz-and-kasich/

My guess: For the good of the party (and country), Jeb floats the idea that Rubio and Kasich drop out and back Cruz. After all Jeb dropped out, they can too. Gag me.
