As impressive as the Trump children in their speeches at the Republican convention were, Newt Gingrich easily gave the best performance. It was short, to the point, and mostly dealt with confronting radical Islam. The worst performance went to Ted Cruz, who was booed unmercifully by the crowd for not endorsing Donald Trump. Many Republicans are saying Cruz put an end to his presidential hopes.
I can understand Cruz's unwillingness to endorse Trump after all the nasty things Trump said about him and his wife. But if that's the way he feels, he could have passed up giving a speech at the convention. If you are not going to endorse the nominee, why speak at all?
It just didn't make sense.
