Specifically, four thoughts not standing in line like the foul-up at the beginning....That was hilarious LOL
1.) Rand Paul was really missed tonight – bomb this, bomb that, pre-emptive military strikes anywhere and everywhere, torture is good, keep Guantanamo Bay open blah blah blah
2.) Interesting the battle between the “moderates” – Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Jeb!, Chris Christie. Christie really slapped down the twerp Rubio, that’s got to hurt but I think Kasich came off the best of that group as he was the most positive and the least scary or ideological (although his record is pretty far right wing).
3.)Another contentious moment – I thought Donald Trump came off really badly in the debate over Eminent Domain with Jeb!. The only time Jeb has ever landed a punch on Trump in the history of these debates especially when he pointed out Trump attempted to bully an old lady for her land.
4.) Last year, I thought Scott Walker was going to be the Republican nominee but Trump killed his campaign. I now feel Ted Cruz is filling the space Walker would have filled. I enjoy making fun of Ted Cruz as much as the next fella – He is extremely awkward and unnatural, everybody who has ever dealt with him (including members of his own family) think he’s a tremendous asshole, and he behaves like some sort of cloned hybrid of Joseph McCarthy and Richard Nixon but it’s a mistake to not take him seriously. He’s a canny campaigner and has got a well-organized, well-managed campaign. Most importantly, he’s got more money than anyone else other than Trump. He did a really good job tonight of presenting himself as a serious candidate.
