#2 The will of millions of Americans appears to mean nothing to this man. Perhaps it is well he did not succeed.

#5 Seems like a really bad idea.

#6 I hate Trump but Cruz should know this is not a good idea. Go back and keep putting sand in the establishment gears in the senate like Texas sent you there to do.

#7 When you throw in the towel you can't just pick it up again. The tactic of winning on the second round of voting was clever but would always have tarnished his Presidency.

It was not his time and now he's burning down any chance of a future run.

#8 Cruz is an organ grinder's monkey, dancing for nickels. Glenn Beck is the organ grinder...

#10 He is following in his mentor, mitt's, footsteps. His true colors are showing.

#11 Indecisive. That is not what you want in a president.

#12 The organ grinder is Goldman-Sachs.

#13 Er... the actually quote from the article:

"We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory," he said Tuesday on Glenn Beck's radio program. "If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly."

That doesn't sound like "If we win Nebraska we're back in!", it sounds like "If catastrophe happens or the convention wants a compromise Candidate, I'll throw my hat back in."

How exactly is that unreasonable? Yes it was in response to a question on Nebraska from Beck( though I don't know the tone or if it was said jokingly, since audio isn't linked), but still. That seems a reasonable statement.
