CLIFF KINCAID — It is not unusual for a politician to change his mind, even on critical national security matters. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) essentially flip-flopped on the damage done by NSA defector Edward Snowden. He went from saying that Snowden may have violated the law to accusing the NSA defector of being an outright traitor.... (more)

CBS NEWS — Donald Trump's restraint on the topic of Ted Cruz Thursday gave way to more expansive remarks Friday that ranged from his own comments earlier this year linking Cruz's father to Lee Harvey Oswald to Cruz's failure to endorse him.... (more)

THE AMERICAN SPECTATOR — This should be the last time I write against Donald Trump all year. Okay, all you conservatives who supported Donald Trump before he officially became the Republican Party's official nominee last night: Now, you own him. He's all yours.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — You reap what you sow. For a generation since Ronald Reagan left Washington -- that would be the Ronald Reagan who knew that "I'm from the government and I'm here to help" was a punch line -- the "conservative" Republican party has sown an incoherent statism that has trouble telling the good guys from the bad guys....

TOM HOEFLING — Sometimes you can learn more about a politician by paying close attention to what he doesn't say than by what he does say. So I'm not going to point in this missive much to the things Trump said, or shouted, from the podium last night at the close of the 2016 GOP convention.... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN — As Mike Pence accepted the Republican Party's nomination for vice president, I witnessed a supporter of Donald Trump and a Ted Cruz backer in a nearly chest-to-chest shouting match in the back of the convention floor, fighting over Cruz's non-endorsement.... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY — "Conscience," it seems, is a curse word to the followers of Donald Trump. But as our institutions fail and true leaders are scarce, and times grow dark for all who care about liberty and the rule of law, the only light we have left is conscience.... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW — What happened last night on Facebook, Twitter, Instant Messenger, and e-mail was unprecedented, for this writer at least. It started almost as soon as Ted Cruz left the podium in Cleveland, and it built up momentum until it quickly became an avalanche. I didn't just hear from politicos (though I certainly did hear from them) or conservatives (ditto) -- I heard from liberals, moderates, and even from friends who are relatively apolitical. Some wanted to hear my opinion on Cruz's speech and the subsequent reaction. But most just wanted to let me know that they thought it was fantastic.... (more)

AMANDA CARPENTER — He didn't endorse, but he still came to Cleveland. In coming to the GOP convention that crowned Donald Trump as its Republican presidential candidate, Cruz faced intense pressure to fall in line behind the nominee, although the Trump campaign offered no apologies for the disgraceful way it smeared Cruz in the primary contests....

CONSERVATIVE REVIEW — As Ted Cruz began to close his speech on freedom and conservative values at the GOP Convention something remarkable happened -- the crowd started booing. Evidently ardent Trump supporters didn't like that fact that Cruz bravely stated "vote your conscience" instead of endorsing Trump, obviously a veiled attack on the GOP nominee.... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST — Donald Trump has humbled some of us who cheered the Donald's biting take-down of the haughty, out-of-date, presumptive king-making Republican establishment. The New York realtor/developer impressed many as the most outspoken public brawler since Harry Truman, who in turn was the feistiest president since Andrew Jackson. Therefore many who liked Trump nonetheless opined a year ago that the GOP would not nominate him, nor would he win at the convention... (more)

NATIONAL REVIEW — We're more than a day into the plagiarism issue, and it seems to follow the pattern of most other things in this presidential election and/or the world today: It's a dangling object that consumes a moment of time and soon passes. But the problem is one that is endemic in the Trump campaign and that should have #NeverTrump types getting a second look, even at this late date.... (more)
