CNN Republican Debate

Posted by Troy on 25th February 2016 in Current Events, Political

Nice opening comments.  Hey, Wolf Blitzer, I sold more books than you!

A lot of fireworks early on.  I will say that people trying to pick on Cruz for supporting amnesty is nuts.  That’s just factually inaccurate.  So far, Trump’s getting a little blood on his face between the comments of Cruz and Rubio who seem out for blood today, but Trump had a good rejoinder regarding how many jobs he’s created.

Heeeeey, Kasich and Carson get to talk too?  That’s nice of them.  Of course, Kasich is just saying “If you’re here or get here quickly, we’ll let you stay.”  Yeah…that won’t encourage more offenders.  I’m a little bummed by Carson’s stance on immigration.  They broke the law.  The punishment for breaking the law is being deported.  I’m also not interest in trying to improve the economies of other countries.

Trump did a good rant against the trade deficits.  However, Rubio is really giving him hell tonight.

I do like Rubio’s lip service to “we can’t do something Unconstitutional just because we’re sympathetic.”  I don’t really trust him on that sentiment, but there ya go.

I really hate the “I met this little girl/old lady/whatever” antedote that Kasich and other people use.

Thank God…something other than immigration.

Kasich is all over the place with his answer on religious freedom.

Rubio has a pretty decent plan on healthcare on the surface.

I do like Trump’s shout out to competition.  Kasich does seem to be under the assumption that government spending creates healthy people.  Carson gave a great answer.  I can’t believe they were going to skip Cruz.  Come on, man.  That’s not fair.  CNN needs to cut people when they are talking over each other, but everyone should have a chance to answer a major category question.

I hate to say it, but Kasich is starting to grow on me.  He does very well being passionate regarding the economy at least.  With less people on the stage, he does stand out more.

In fairness, audits are usually not fraudulent.  Those wrap up pretty quickly.  They are just proving your position.  Cruz is using the perception of an audit to mislead here.

I do agree with Marco.  There’s only one issue that matters, really.  That’s the debt.  Well…that and the Supreme Court.  But seriously, the debt is our biggest national security concern.

I do applaud Marco taking it to Trump, but he waited way too long.  I think Trump has managed to rebuff Marco for the most part.  Trump supporters are pretty loyal, so waiting this long to try to take him on is a bit toxic.

Carson really does get the shaft.  He really had a lot of good answers and managed to fit it into a time frame that should have been for one issue.

I really wish they would have talked more about the debt.  That’s the single most important issue.

I have to say…no clue who won the night.  I think it really depends on who you are supporting or not.  The biggest loser was CNN who couldn’t control the debate at all and gave Dr. Ben Carson almost zero airtime.  FAIL!

Long Live The Constitution!

    I have to say, Trump’s “I’m the only one who has hired thousands of people on this stage.” stood out the most for me.
    Rubio’s a robot, will never trust him.
