Is this how The Donald intends to handle Putin, the ChiComs, ISIS, et al?
Not necessarily. Cruz just needed people on his staff who were familiar with the rules governing Louisiana delegates.
Cruz did. Evidently, Trump didn't.
Whose fault is that?
RE: Most Louisiana voters did not vote for Trump.
So how do we decide the outcome?
The Louisiana rules are there precisely to decide on such issues.
Otherwise, do you propose a 3 man rematch in Louisiana?
“They party makes the rules. Whats he gonna do..”
And when they screw Ted, I hope to God to not hear any of his Gope bootlicker fanboys raise one damn note of protest.
Totally GOPe’s fault if a president Clinton happens. If the GOPe would have let the process go without interference and Trump didn’t win the nomination. Ok, but they have tried every trick in the book to stop trump. It’s unprecedented. Go trump!
“I believe Trump could go 3rd party and win. That would be the death of the GOPe.”
Yes, it would be the death of the GOP-e, but it would split the vote and we would end up with Hillary as President.
RE: Is this how The Donald intends to handle Putin, the ChiComs, ISIS, et al?
Who’s going to be the judge?
No, it’s not “shenanigans”. It is merely the rules of how things work in US primaries. Trump doesn’t like the rules, ya know. So naturally, he’ll sue. It’s one thing he’s good at and noted for. Well, that, vulgarities and whining.
I agree, I think it would actually help him MORE at this point
many folks won’t vote for him because of the R label, it’s a tarnished brand
it might not be bad for him to break off and crush it
And how os Cruz going to handle hi?
Sleep with a bunch of women, give him a Bible sermon, and then give a 40 minute “victory speech” while the Kremlin’s tanks roll into Paris?
Another story on LA. somewhere described the methods where the least qualified delegates were placed on these key committees and veterans are passed over. The lady who was a Trump supporter was a former lawmaker.
If he wins by corrupt delegate process overriding the Will of The People I will not vote for this shark.
And testimony to the “deal-making” we can all look forward to.
People keep citing, “Politics ain’t beanbag,” apparently,it ain’t real-estate deal-making, either.
-—Yes, it would be the death of the GOP-e, but it would split the vote and we would end up with Hillary as President.
Don’t bet on it. This is a strange election cycle.
Ted Cruz; back door man.
The oligarchy. The structure. Stealing the will of the electorate to ensure its power. Founders did not envision a political elite class that has since been created with all these circumventing “party” rules.
Cruz is the perfect GOPe establishment candidate.
-—while the Kremlins tanks roll into Paris?
Ted would go all “passive aggressive” and blame Trump
Another example of Americans choices don’t matter! The scumbag politicians need to be eliminated en toto.
Technically, the rules change at every convention because each convention votes in a new set of rules. Just like each Congress votes on a new set of rules.
Well as you know candidates say lots of things. For example when Cruz says he is going to rip up the obamacare bill on the first day. Most Americans know that will certainly know that won’t happen the first day.
More of the “Most LA voters” didn’t vote for Cruz.
