    Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and rival Ted Cruz both had victories Tuesday in the U.S. presidential race. Trump easily won the Arizona primary while Cruz won a lopsided victory in caucus voting in Utah. But even as Trump moves closer to securing the Republican Party nomination, many establishment Republicans remain hesitant to heed his call to unite behind him as the expected nominee.

    Republicans...get used to another loss in the General Election, no matter which Republican wins the party's nomination. You are not united, you are not pulling on the same rope, you are already fractured and fragmented and flying off in a million directions on a daily basis. This entire nomination process for the Republican is more than enough fuel for the Democratic party.
    I know that the mud slinging and professional attacks are all part and parcel to the nomination process; make yourself look good while making your opponent(s) look bad; but Trump and Cruz have taken even this to extreme levels. Mr. Kasaich, I know you are hoping for a dark horse win at the convention, but its only a dream...wake up now.
    Even if Trump (dare I say it) wins the nomination and the Presidency (perish the thought), he would be the President with very few friends and supporters in Congress; a boat without paddle or motor, cast adrift in a sea of indifference and political hostility. If we have thought President Obama to be inefficient and ineffective, Trump will eclipse that easily
    Republicans, get your act together before it is too late, if it is not too late already.

    Donald Trump's relationship to the Republican Party is out of Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With the Wind."

    The Scarlett O'Hara GOP asking Donald Trump the Rhett Butler "Rhett, Rhett... Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?

    "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

    The GOP like Mitchell's Old South is a bygone civilization buried in the sands of time and gone with the wind!!!!

    They're 'reluctant' for a very good reason Trump. You're a pig.
