I gotta agree with him on this one issue.

I would never endorse anyone who had maligned my wife and father.

So, why are the R's mad?

Why does someone born in Canada even think he has the right to run? And don't give me this baloney about his mother being an American citizen. You must be born on American soil to be a natural born citizen. He would never get my vote even if he weren't a jerk. Only a total jerk would act the way he did.

As for being mad, why? The only person he damaged was himself. I am glad I didn't watch it.

They call him a traitor for not endorsing Trump. (I can't stand the guy, but that showed a certain amount of integrity)
And in the same breath the call Sanders "weak" for endorsing Clinton.

I'm not mad at all. Then again I'm neither Dem or GOP. Teddie boy committed political suicide though. he should have stayed and watched the RNC from his couch.

on the other hand - at least he's not a spineless boot licker like Bernie.

I'm not mad at him...but only because I don't care.

Here's the the thing about Ted Cruz, he could've personally kept his family out of it. But when you insist on being escorted to events or having your other half doing interviews, then yeah, their fair game. And in his case, he went so far as to put his kids in a commercial. I didn't even know what those kids looked like until he brought them into play. He tried to use them to gain American sympathy/support, and then it didn't work, it went the other way, and he started crying.

So being a politician, he should've put all of that aside and supported the nominee since he's such a "HARDCORE" Republican, but he didn't and made himself look worse amongst his party. He just could never connect with the general public and would've got creamed in a general election.

I think it will work out for him in the long run. People tend to like those who take a stand.

He lied. During the debates he said he would endorse the republican nomination. He lied when he said he'd stick to a certain speech, instead he went on a Me Me me speech. I supported his Senate run but won't support lying Ted anymore.

He said he would support the republican nomination. How does one have integrity when they lie? You sound like a Hillary supporter.
