Ryan, Trump, Cruz, Kasick Schuffling The Issues

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Ryan Rules Out A Run - Speaker Paul Ryan tried again this afternoon to squash speculation that he might be a presidential candidate this fall. Speaking at the Republican National Committee headquarters moments ago, Ryan said, "Let me be clear: I do not want, nor will I accept the Republican nomination."

Addressing the delegates directly, Speaker Ryan said, "If no candidate has a majority on the first ballot, I believe you should only choose a person who actually participated in the primary. Count me out."

The Battle Of New York - New polling shows that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are poised for big wins in next week's New York primaries. The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Trump leading his closest competitor by a whopping 33 points!

In an interview with USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers, Donald Trump was asked about who he sees in his cabinet and as a potential running mate. Here's what he said:
"There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven't told anybody names. . . I do like Marco [Rubio]. I do like [John] Kasich. . . I like [Scott] Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard. . . But I've always liked him."Meanwhile, among New York Democrats, Hillary Clinton enjoys a 14-point lead over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sanders has been on a roll lately -- scoring wins in seven of the last eight contests. Numerous reports indicate that Hillary Clinton's campaign is going "all in" for a "decisive" victory in the Empire State.

There is growing pressure from the Democrat establishment for Clinton to strike back and put down the Sanders rebellion or "revolution" as he likes to call it. Some Democrat strategists worry that even a close Clinton win -- within 10 points -- could undermine her standing with super delegates and party activists.

Cruz In California - With New York voting next week, a number of commentators wondered why Sen. Ted Cruz was on the other side of the country campaigning in California. The reason is that for the first time in decades, the Republican presidential nomination may come down to the state that gave us Ronald Reagan.

California is one of the last states to vote -- on June 7th. It also has the most delegates. Recent polling shows the contest in the Golden State is very competitive -- Donald Trump leads Senator Cruz by just seven points.

But most of California's convention delegates will be awarded not to the winner of the state-wide vote, but to the winner of each congressional district. California is a very diverse state with some very conservative areas where Senator Cruz could do quite well.

Just as his attention to the delegate selection process is paying off, Cruz's early organization and attention to California could yield big dividends several weeks from now.

Kasich Doubles Down - I have to give Governor John Kasich points for consistency. He went on CNN yesterday and doubled down on his view that values issues just aren't that important. Referring to Mississippi's religious liberty law, Kasich said:
"I read about this thing they did in Mississippi where apparently you can deny somebody service because they're gay. What the hell are we doing in this country? . . . We had a Supreme Court ruling, and you know what, let's move on."Not only did Kasich embrace the language of the left in grossly distorting Mississippi's law, he embraced the left's strategy for fundamentally redefining America.

Not that long ago, fighting judicial activism was a key pillar of conservatism. Sadly, too many GOP elites are willing to let unelected judges dictate our values. That is wrong, and the Supreme Court often gets it wrong, too.

The Supreme Court made a ruling in Dred Scott that said black men and women were not people, but property. Thankfully, we didn't just accept it and "move on."

The Supreme Court made a ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson upholding segregation. That was wrong. The Supreme Court made a ruling in Roe v. Wade, declaring that unborn children were property to be disposed of at a whim. That has been a disaster.

Sorry, governor, but millions of Americans do care about these issues, and we will not "move on" while the left rips this country away from its Judeo-Christian roots.
