The National Scene-The Sunday Political Talk Show Report on 2/28/16

Ted Cruz battles with Chris Wallace and it wasn’t purty. Christie endorses Trump with the joy of political opportunism. Tune in for this summary of the Sunday political talk shows along with my take on things.

FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump; GOP Presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Cruz, Trump, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders; Republican presidential candidate John Kasich.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Cruz, Sanders, Trump.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Cruz, Sanders; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Cruz, Christie, Kasich; Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.

The FreeRepublic Sunday Talk Show Thread

Fox News Sunday

It was with Chris Wallace that Ted Cruz did a most abominable job of an interview, goodness, Cruz is my guy but after this interview I am skeptical.

sndaypoli2.28.16trumpuniversitysfFirst Trump was interviewed by Wallace and nobody would say Wallace was easy on Trump.
Wallace asked him about the ongoing court case with Trump University and some pathetic story about Polish immigrants sleeping on a Trump construction job some 30 years ago….go on.

Trump stated that Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are in cahoots, that he saw them shaking hands before the last debate, that they are the dreaded establishment.

First, don’t they all shake hands before events such as debates?

Second, Cruz comes on and he’s going on and on about all kinds of stupid stuff that Donald allegedly did.

More than notable was how rude and sarcastic Cruz was with Chris Wallace, not that Wallace is my hero or anything but he gave a fair interview that Cruz didn’t like and that’s the short of it.

NBC’s- Meet the Press

We had some Bernie Sanders on this show and God bless, crazy Uncle Bernie was all over the place apologizing for his awful South Carolina showing.

CBS’ Face the Nation

All of the big players of the week were interviewed but nothing terribly new in any of it.

Political Cartoon of the Week

ABC’s This Week

On ABC’s This Week, it was more notable by the revelation made by this Sunday political talk show’s round table.

Because one of the pundits revealed something very interesting. Seems, as alleged, that 8 to 10 HOUSE Republicans have said that they will in no way support Trump as the Republican presidential nominee.

Say what?

I thought once the people nominated their candidate via the primary process that all the party is supposed to support the guy?

And now we are to understand, however secretly, that almost a dozen HOUSE Republicans are whispering a vow to not support Trump?

sundaypoli2.28.16chrischristiesfNJ Governor Chris Christie, famous this week for his recent endorsement of Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee.

My thoughts on Christie in MY TAKE.

Giving Greta Vansustern credit, while co-members of the This Week round table, she at least said that no matter what the elected elite felt about Trump, EVIDENTLY THE VOTERS WANT HIM!

You go Greta. Somebody’s got to speak the obvious.

CNN’s State of the Union

sundaypoli2.28.16kasichstateofunionsfOhio Governor John Kasich was guest on this show and he was arrogant and rude, as always.

Kasich did make a couple of very rigid statements on this show.

Kasich said he will either win the Ohio primary or he will drop out. In addition, Kasich admitted that he will support whoever the primary presidential Republican winner might be.

We’ll be watching that Kasich adheres to this promise.

My Take

The big political news this week is New Jersey Governor’s endorsement of Donald Trump.

Come on. If ever there were a political opportunist, whether it’s kissing President Obama’s butt to get federal money or snuggling up to Donald Trump for a possible VP slot, it exists in the form of Chris Christie.

Christie waffled, spit and salivated over his confidence that The Donald will build that Mexican wall, that given time Trump will make Mexico pay for it, that his former money person, one Meg Whitman, was pathetic with her public disapproval of Christie’s endorsement of Trump.

But Christie is ambitious, if not an especially loyal person.

I think it’s entirely possible Christie will be Trump’s VP nominee.

I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.

Please feel free to email me at if you want to send me a special comment or have any ideas or information you want to share.

NEXT : Sussex county council meeting soon. Maybe they’ll finally vote on that Overbrook center.
