"A Christian, Conservative and Republican, In That Order"

Indiana Governor Mike Pence just delivered a speech replete with self deprecating humor and modesty. He also came across as trustworthy and solid while embracing his role as the "softer" side of the ticket, as well as the man who will bring most if not all of the voters that Cruz has claimed -- those who are "Christian, conservative and Republican, in that order," as Pence described himself. Three attributes that Cruz would have us believe aren't "New York values." Regardless of the truth of that claim, any perception that Trump doesn't represent the rightward side of the party is dispelled by his choice of a running mate. Pence gave a reliable Midwestern stump speech for the New Yorker. Pence confirmed that Trump made the right choice to balance the ticket both geographically and politically. As the delegates chanted, "We like Mike!"
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
