Let’s face one thing…the mere fact the GOP has 2007 more debates scheduled than the six the Dems are launching because Hillary doesn’t like having to comb her hair for the camera is getting a little much. We understand where these guys fall as far as policy, and while we may see some movement from last night’s show, it won’t be a lot. Here’s my take:
TRUMP: He was ok as his style of debates go…but he ran out of gas halfway through and faded into the night. Someone needs to remind him to take a nap in the afternoon.
CRUZ: Wasn’t the best Ted Cruz debate ever. Now, that’s not saying it was bad. I don’t think Ted Cruz can do a bad debate (after all, he WAS a national debate champion in college), but he wasn’t on last night.
RUBIO: Marco did a good job. He engaged Cruz, as he needed to. Those two are fighting for the “legitimate” candidates’ slot in the finals of this cattle call. He’s been appealing but Cruz has been surging. He needed to have a good night.
BUSH: Jeb woke up! Loosen the bell, the goat is home!! Of course, I think it’s too little too late. He took on Trump with gusto and nice retorts. And Trump laid into him pretty well. But I have one question. Why is the GOP front-runner spending so much of his time lambasting a guy with 4% of the vote nationally? He’s not even a player.
CHRISTIE: I really like Chris Christie’s character. He comes at you right between the eyes and he doesn’t give a hot damn what you think. He tells it the way it is. He did that again last night. He’s a good debater because of that, and it showed. If only the GOP could start understanding what he’s saying!
CARSON: I thought Ben Carson was weak. He wasn’t forceful, he didn’t debate, he dodged some questions, and I think it was his worst performance. I’m expecting him to fall after last night.
KASICH: Make no mistake, John Kasich is a nice guy. He’s just WAY over his head. And he really doesn’t deserve to be there. Poor debate…poor decision to run. He needs to leave.
THE FIELD: The rest of the field was so-so. Rand Paul hasn’t stood out in these debates much at all, and when he did it’s been for the wrong reasons. Rumor has it that he’s the next to suspend his candidacy. I don’t think many people will notice. Oh…the undercard. Did anybody watch? Lindsay Graham won it again, but then again I think he debated the janitor, a lighting technician and the girl that sang the national anthem. Wasn’t she on American Idol?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
