ROGER KIMBALL: I wanted Ted Cruz to be President, but Donald Trump is working.Yeah, I was a Cruz fan, and before that a Walker and Paul fan, but I strongly doubt any of them would have done as well in their first year as Trump has done. And, you know, the press would have called them Hitler, too.

Mmmmmmm… While I agree that’s Trump is working, I still insist Ted Cruz would have done better.

No arguments that Donald Trump is doing better than Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, but as I’ve said many times before in these spaces, doing better than Obama and or Hillary Clinton really isn’t all that much of a challenge.

And I still wonder if conservatives wouldn’t have come out of the deal a bit stronger had Hillary Clinton actually managed to pull off cheating her way into the White House. I think that would have been the wake-up call in a very large way that the American people wanted conservatives and not the Democrat light version of the GOP.

All that said, I do have to say also that Trump has been something of a surprise with the amount of successes he’s had. He’s getting reasonably good guidance and that is a help.

I will continue to praise him when he’s right and I will continue to run him through the thresher when I think he deserves it. But I have to say that for the most part, he is better than I figured he would be.

And anyone that sets the left’s teeth on edge like this has got to be worth the price of admission..
