With Donald Trump and Ted Cruz topping most polls, some imaginative activists have already contacted my radio show to suggest that the two leading candidates join forces to run together as a team. After all, “Trump and Ted” has a nice ring to it, and they appeal to the same segment of the Republican Party with their hard line on immigration and anti-establishment rhetoric. Could their once celebrated “bromance” on the campaign trail blossom into a right-wing dream ticket so powerful and convincing as to sweep aside all resistance?….

    Oh good one Michael!

    As to Obama, you do know that if he was from say, Ohio, there would have been no question about his birth. But many people still don’t get that Hawaii is part of the USA. Companies will charge extra to ship calling it “overseas” even though it is the SAME cost to ship flat rate via USPS to the entire United States. These companies don’t see the irony of not charging more if the product has to be flown cross country from California to New York. I worked for a Canadian company and some of our clients would ask why Hawaii has a USA post office. The “ignorance” goes on and on but I guess Hawaii will always be seen as something exotic and different.

      Nani has gone off the deep-end now. We can all say bye-bye… Nani is La-La-Land. Where she belongs, I might add.

    Nani, are you on the George Soros payroll or perhaps Prozac?

    Educate yourself Nani and Michael

    Nearly 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they’d cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14 percent, of Republicans claim they’d vote for Clinton. When those groups were further broken down, a far higher percentage of the crossover Democrats contend they are “100 percent sure” of switching than the Republicans.

      Michael Medved is amazing when he thinks he is so good at picking our candidates and telling us who can’t win and then his candidates lose to the worst president in my lifetime.

      Michael started off a Democrat and it’s painfully obvious that in many ways, he still is.

    If one looks at the poll on the website, the squshy RINO’s Michael supports are at the bottom.
    Oregon voted 70% to 30% on a ctizens created ballot measure to overturn a Democrat passed law to give illegals a driver’s license (in other words get out). Michael seems to think we must pander to hispanics(illegals)>> the above election results seem to indicate just the opposite.

    MIchael’s article was written with all the snarkiness of a liberal. He did however point out that the mother of Barry Soreto was not old enough to assure the child is automatically an American citizen. Thus the place of birth is important.
    Obama’s first court challenge was the Berg case, Berg a former AG of PA. and Hillary suipporter and sought to have a B/C submited to a court for examination. Obama spent lots of money to fight this, when it would have been simple to provide a B/C. This should raise some doubts to all but a blindly loyal lemming.
    Obama’s B/C has never been submitted to a court for authentication and ruling as it seems no one has standing to request such a thing.
    TEd Cruz situation is entirely differnt and Trump will lose support if he pushes it.
    This article just seems like snarky sour grapes and an attem,pt to misinform because the squishes Michael supports cant even get get above 3%
