South Carolina Debate

Posted by Troy on 13th February 2016 in Current Events, Political

Man…I gotta say… what debate?  For good or ill… Trump won the debate and Bush lost the debate.  This was a night where Bush was Trump’s whipping boy.  Whatever good moments the other candidates had were just OBLITERATED by Trump just wearin’ Bush’s @$$ out!!!!!  Jesus!  I heard a theory by Glenn Beck that said that Bush was staying in it to take Trump down.  Seriously…if that’s the case, dude… give up and drop out.  All Bush did was create a distraction that everyone else got lost in.  I hate to say that because I like Carson and Cruz more than I like Trump, but all I can remember of the night was Trump just destroying Bush over and over and over again.  It was brutal.  Jesus…

Long Live the Constitution!

I think we’re finally down to the four legitimate choices.

Romney – Still playing prevent defense.  He’s trying to be Ronald Reagan with a bit of flowery speech about the soul of America, but there’s a key difference:  Reagan believed deeply in what he was saying; Romney is saying what he thinks he needs to say to get elected.

Gingrich – Started off strong and fought off attack after attack.  I also liked his step-by-step explanation on the immigration problem.  I think he has a lot of character flaws.  I also think that he would be a big government kind of guy, but he does have a lot of good ideas.  It would be entertaining to see him debate Obama.

Santorum – I just don’t know what it is about this guy.  On the issues, I think he’s fairly solid, but there’s just something about his face that makes me think, “You’re a slimy little bastard.”  I don’t know why that is.  He attacks everyone else.  I guess it’s as though he can”t raise himself up, so he just has to tear the others down.  The more I see him, the less I like him.

Ron Paul – Man, they just ignored him!  What is up with that?  The other three were so busy attacking each other that he just got left out.  I think this debate went better for him.  He’s admitting that he’s got a great message, but he’s not the best messenger, which is good and true.  Again, everything he said is true.

I believe that these four are the most electable.  I think Ron Paul would actually do better in a general election than in the primary.  However, given the nature of everything, I am hoping that the Supreme Court slaps down Obamacare.  It’s going to take a perfect run (maintain control of the House, get 60+ members in the Senate, and win the Presidency) to get rid of Obamacare.  If it stays in place, we will be doomed in short order.

Long Live the Constitution!

Here’s my take:

Romney – Man, what a slimy guy.  His answer about his tax return says it all.  Still, it was the typical, down the middle performance full of sound bites you might expect from him at this point.

Gingrich – Who wouldn’t want to see this guy debate Obama?  I think we all enjoyed wanting him eviscerate Juan Williams.  He had a lot of cheerworthy lines and a lot of good plans throughout.

Ron Paul – He did well…except for the Osama bin Laden debacle.  I think that’s gonna cost him.  Also, suggesting that our jingoist attitude gets us in trouble isn’t popular.  I’m thinking he did himself in on this one. 

Santorum – Is it me, or is this the guy that just corrects your grammar when you argue with the guy?  He nitpicks and splits hair.  He’s kinda slimy too, in my opinion.  I’m liking him less these days. 

Perry – Ya know, he finally looks half decent, but he still deserves to be at the bottom of the barrel.  He just held up well this time because no one really paid much attention to him.  If he had the full attention again, he would crumble.
