John Kasich is still the best candidate by far. Great two-term Governor in a
major mid-west state. Makes a huge difference that he has experience as a CEO.
Plus he is not far right. Most U.S. senators have never been CEO of
anything. (little or no experience making very tough decisions) While there are
a couple of Senators whose positions I support, I would not vote for them as
POTUS. Kasich is the best choice by far. He likely has no chance of winning the
GOP nomination however. Sad.
@Mad HatterName just one accomplishment which has benefited the
people of America stemming from Hillary Clinton, and her enormous experience.Did she risk her life in Bosnia for the good of America? Again! "Any of these guys will be a vast improvement to what
we have, or Bernie/Hillary."
This Was " THE WORST DEBATE EVER !!!" CNN:s Wolf, Lost
Control Through 85% Of The Two Hours!!!No Wonder The House and
Senate Never Gets Anything Done!!!!They Love To Waste Time and Yell
At Each Other!!!Trump Will Kill Both Of Them On Super Tuesday!!!
Rubio & Cruz were forced to attack Trump. The media have failed to reveal
Trump as an awful presidential candidate...he continues to lead in the polls.But Rubio & Cruz understand politics, they understand the
Constitution. They have a plan to lead this country. Trump has none of
that.Having said that, the Republicans are a mess right now. It
would be interesting to see if Democrats are voting for Trump in these primaries
in order to throw the GOP campaign into turmoil.Meanwhile, the
Democrats are so corrupt in their nominating process: Bernie would be close in
delegate counts if the DNC were really interested in letting voters choose their
candidate. But Hillary is far ahead due to "Super-delegates", which is
another way of the DNC saying "We don't care what you want, we know
better and we'll pick whoever we want". Yes, truly the Democrat way.
worfMcallen, TX"Any of these guys will be a vast
improvement to what we have, or Bernie/Hillary."Any Republican
would be better, right? As long as that persons is a certified conservative,
he/she would be better. Sarah Palin would be better, right? Even Ben Carson!Talk about knee-jerk responses. Makes me feel like I'm sitting at a
junior high rally where we use cute, derogatory remarks to bolster our
teams's fragile ego. "We're better than you, rah, rah,
rah!"No one is as knowledgeable, dedicated to service, and has
the experience of Hillary Clinton. She has her faults and problems with over 25
years in the political world, but her resume is not one of them. And then there
are the bogus scandals the Republicans keep repeating ad nauseum. But the main
thing Republicans object to with Hillary Clinton is that she is a Democratic
candidate. They can't stand that.And the idea of Hillary
succeeding the first black president Republicans have hated with a passion
unseen since FDR is enough to give them a heart attack. It's just too bad
they can't see country beyond their own self-interest.
The debate was great television, not so great politics.I appreciated
Ben Carson's civil demeanor throughout. He might not be a valid candidate,
but he is a good man. His 'will someone attack me' comment was a
classic.Kasich tried to stick to issues. I applaud him for that.
Sad his message is unheard due to the shouting. He'd have done better in
the 'good ole days'.The other three were fun to watch.
It's sad this is for President and not just to win some random reality
show. All three struggled through the facts with their cute one liner attacks.
Cruz and Rubio made a lot of factual mistakes, but at least they were trying to
throw 'facts' out. Trump didn't even bother to make them up this
go around. His best attempt dealt with us being the most taxed people.
We're actually out of the top ten in the world on that list. Mr. Trump
that's one I'm glad America's not winning.Oh well,
there's always the next debate.
Any of these guys will be a vast improvement to what we have, or Bernie/Hillary.
Watching this 'debate' was painful.The civilized world laughs at
them and us.Similar to Hogle Zoo monkeys flinging feces at each other.
The Republicans have a choice of 3 nightmares:1. a man who talks
about shooting people in the streets (T-Rump)2. a man who talks about
making the sand glow in the Middle East (Cruz)3. a man who talks about
eliminating ALL income taxes for the rich and blowing the deficit out of the
water (Rube)I hope the Repubs wake up before inflicting this
nightmare on the rest of us.
If a independent candidate doesn't jump in I would really be surprised
because if this is what republicans have to offer then this country is in
"I don't repeat myself. I don't repeat myself." - Donald
TrumpFor me, that was the most memorable quote of the debate, and it
is indicative of the weird and awful power of Republican pundits and
politicians, who can tell obvious, bald faced lies to their gullible and adoring
followers . . . And be adored even more."I don't repeat
myself. I don't repeat myself."Right . . . That’s
important to know. And that's why you repeated yourself.That
makes sense!You are truly a GREAT American Mr. Trump.
Just a hunch but I think the RNC is trying to look good via this coalition
between Rubio and Cruz to both strike at Trump. During the debate, Rubio did say
that the GOP is a party of diversity and not the Democrats. With President Obama
at the helm for the last eight years, I think the RNC is probably thinking that
it would look really good for them to have Rubio and Cruz gain momentum in
attacking Trump and convince the country that the GOP is a party of diversity
and not just the Democrats, when it comes to electing a POTUS. Political
tactical game at its best.
Is this how Cruz and Rubio would treat leaders of other nations? I think that
I've seen enough and heard enough to know that in Utah's primary, my
vote will not be for Rubio nor will it be for Cruz. If they're so
desperate that they can't stand for anything, only against something,
they're not leaders. We've had too many Presidents who were against
everything and were for nothing except themselves.
Given what the Republican party has become, The Donald is their best candidate.
As a casual observer with no horse in the race, it's very amusing to say
We will soon know what candidate wins the GOP nomination for "Shouter in
The trouble with AP coverage of Republicans is that they've got a horse in
the race. It's like asking a Burger King spokesman what they think of
Trump supporters are giving their leaders a reality check. They are sick of the
GOP leadership constantly groveling at the feet of the rich. They are sending
them a strong message. I applaud them.
I was impressed by John Kasich in Thursday night's debate. While three
others wasted our time calling each other names, Kasich offered practical
solutions, viable plans, and maintained a positive attitude. The race is not
hopeless after all.
Coalition is I think, taking place between Rubio and Cruz and I can see Governor
Kasich becoming Secretary of the Treasury in the GOP's administration if
they win the White House.
Too little, too late. MarcoBot finally went on the offensive, struck some good
blows, and emerged battered and bruised. He probably will not win anything on
Super Tuesday and will possibly lose Florida. And what was with the young women
screaming everytime he said anything regardless of what it was? My first thought
was an audience plant his campaign, but it was more weird than an indication of
excitement. It was like sitting in a Menudo concert and all the little girls
cheering and reaching out for attention.As for Rafael Cruz, the
central point he made in his statement of ideological purity was he'd
rather see someone die in the streets before he would allow some government
program provide help. Cruz apparently has drawn a line not to cooperate with
anyone who is not of his extreme political persuasion. No wonder no one of his
Senate colleagues can tolerate him. And it looks like Donald Trump will give him
a run for his money in Texas.Then there is Trump. Giving better that
he got. He batted MarcoBot like a fly in the barnyard and flattened Cruz. Both
left all the worse for wear.
The GOP has exactly the candidates they've been working toward by appealing
to the angriest and most fearful voters.
