    I do not understand why we have to choose between Trump and the moron Democrats running when we have people like Dan Crenshaw. God bless Texas!

    Crenshaw is great. I hope and pray that he’ll have a bright future, perhaps even in the Oval Office.

    At the moment, the President is our man because he won the primaries and beat Hillary. He’s done a pretty good job, and quite rightly, the nomination is his if he wants it. It is almost impossible for a party to win an election after ousting its own sitting President. Doing so would cause a schism in the party that would almost certainly hand the election to the other side.

    My hope is for the President to win re-election in 2020, perhaps followed by Mike Pence or Nikki Haley, and then perhaps the good Mr. Crenshaw after that. If I had my druthers, I’d like to see Tom Cotton in the mix, as well, and I still like Ted Cruz.

    One further thought — I’d really, really like to see Ted Cruz on the Supreme Court.

    Pretty sure Trump will lose anyway unless he draws that inside straight again. There would be no schism in the party if Trump announced he was resigning and endorsed someone like Nikki. But he is way too selfish to do that.

    I had a premonition that Clarence Thomas might resign if it’s apparent Trump is going to go down and possibly take the Senate with him. Cruz would be the ideal candidate to replace him – let Crenshaw and George P. Bush fight it out to replace him.

    Trump has 90% support among Republicans. There would be no reason for him to resign. I guarantee you that if Trump is forced out of office I will literally never vote for another Republican at any level of government ever again in my life.

    Agree both Tom Cotton and Dan Crenshaw give me hope for the future.

    This is cutting off your nose to spite your face. Do you really think Pence would be a worse president? Even if you don’t care about/don’t believe the corruption issues, at the very least Pence won’t betray the Kurds.
