      Who would vote for the traitor now?!

      • taw46 says:

        I still think he will be “presented” as a candidate at a brokered convention. Wonder if Crubio has figured that out yet, that Trump may not be their only competition?


      Red Curve Solutions takes best practices and vendors from the private sector, blends in a proprietary accounting and expense management technology platform to give organizations a superior level of financial expertise without the need to hire additional staff.

    Trump’s opening remarks should be: It seems so long ago I was at my first debate ever, with these same 3 moderators. There was 17 candidates then and now were down to 4. And the very first question was from Bret Baier asking who would pledge the eventual nominee. Everyone raised their hands, but me. Later I did sign the pledge — and look at what these other guys are doing now.
    That folks is what politicians do — they lie to you. They didn’t think I would be in the lead to get the nomination so they all raised their hands. Now that I am, they don’t care what they promised the people.

  5. Dora says:

    Made the announcement a short time before the debate is due to begin.

  6. Dora says:

    He won’t fix it!

  7. Dora says:

  8. votermom says:

    Did Megyn get gender reassignment surgery?

  9. taw46 says:

    Trump just killed it in the first question about what Romney said today. Did not get pulled in, but here we go, still trying to goad him.

  10. taw46 says:

    Hahaha, can’t believe what Trump just said about the hands and what Rubio implied.

  11. lyn says:

    Cruz discovers the working class!

  12. LOLOLOL!!!! All of conservative twitter losing their mind that Trump referenced his dick.

    Guess what? Joe Sixpack is gonna think that’s great.

  13. DandyTIger says:

    Not watching for health reasons. 🙂 Yeah, out of booze.

  14. Damn, Kasich woke up.

  15. Rubio sounds like a yappy chihuahua

  16. taw46 says:

    I despise Rubama. “little Marco”

  17. BTW, Reince’s sister packed the hall with anti-Trump people.

  18. lyn says:

    What’s on Cruz’s lip?

  19. Myiq2xu says:

    Wow, I almost watched 30 whole minutes of the debate!

  20. taw46 says:

    For the most part, I think Trump is doing better in this debate, do you think Christie has been coaching him?

  21. taw46 says:

  22. Dora says:

    Go Vote!

  23. Dora says:

  24. Dora says:

  25. Has Fox done their little sandbagging “look at these graphics/clips” to any candidate beside Trump yet?

  26. Trump’s answer on changing your mind honestly when you get new info was VERY good.

  27. Megyn is treaing this like a hostile interview, not a candidate debate.

    This will help Trump – watch. Voters don’t like moderaters taking over the debate.

  28. taw46 says:

    Megyn Kelly acts like she is the prosecutor in a court trial.

  29. taw46 says:

    Making debate talking points out of complicated business dealings. No opportunity to discuss to understand the issue, just whatever they want to pull out.

  30. Oh, Jesus, I have one beer left… #ToDrinkorNoToDrink

  31. Venus says:

    Holy Fuck — no one gives a shit about Trump University, Little Marco. They care about the fact you were elected in FL promising to be against amnesty and then as soon as you got to DC you headed the Gang of 8.

  32. Dora says:

  33. DandyTIger says:

    I’m loving not watching this debate.

  34. Wow, that was fast.

    • Venus says:

      It wont help him.

      He’s got the charisma of a wet mop.

      • Right?? But it has effectively stopped Trump interrupting him.

        • Venus says:

          Doesn’t matter — this debate didn’t help Cruz or Rubio or Kasich (which helps Trump) because people don’t give a fuck what professional politicians have to say.

          Trump U? TRUMP U? Have the debate was spent on that bullshit.

          How about Gang of 8?

          And lets make this clear: Cruz didn’t *stop* the Gang of 8 legislation — it passed the Senate and the ONLY thing that stopped it in the House was the defeat of Eric Cantor by an unknown, unfunded David Brat in VA. It was WE THE PEOPLE who stopped it — not Ted, not Little Marco with his alleged plan that the House would “fix” it.

          We don’t care about Trump U — we care about the things the pols are doing to ruin our country.

      • I agree on that. And I HATE THAT IT’S TRUE because he’s done a good job not backing down, and is closest to me on policy. But it’s true.

  35. Dora says:

  36. In addition to the A/V focus on Trump, they are only using the split screen on Trump.

  37. 1539days says:

    The blog I wrote tonight is about how Rubio calling the Republicans “the party of Lincoln and Reagan” is ironically correct. The Republicans in 1964 nominated someone other than Lincoln. They passed over Ronald Reagan in 1968 to nominate one of the worst presidents in history (after he lost the general election in 1960).

    Trump actually fits right in with those stories.

  38. My sis just said she thinks Kasich did very well, Trump up and down, and Rubio comes off like a snotty little frat boy.

    • Somebody says:

      My sister is so upset that Trump is bullying Rubio and calling him little Marco. She wanted to vomit when he made a rude sexual reference and says she turned the debate off because Trump is a 5th grade bully and she can’t abide another minute of listening to him.

      • 1539days says:

        Trump has a lot of support. I’m not sure how many new supporters he’s getting.

      • Ppl are different – it’s fascinating. My sis thought the dick reference was hilarious, because she also knows Rubio has been alluding to Trump’s dick all week with his “small hands, you know what that means” wink winking.

        So she thought it was uproariously funny when Trump just said right out loud what Rubio had been smirking and giggling and hinting at all week.

        • Lulu says:

          With Marco it was tittering baby nasty. Tehee! With Trump it was, uh, not. Blunt, crude, etc. Which one do you want in a pissing contest with Putin? It is the male dominance game. They usually don’t do it on live television.

  39. Dora says:

    Who knew Chuck Woolery was still alive?

  40. DandyTIger says:

    • Lulu says:

      Butthurt elites versus angry peasants. The high level of freakout shows how rigid, unadaptable, and fragile that they really are. They appear in some ways to be a evolutionary life form that may die out due to their delicacy and inability to do anything. Like dodos.

  41. DandyTIger says:

  42. Venus says:

    My mom called me today all upset about what Romney did today — she said I loved and admired that man. How can he do this? How dare he tell us NOT to vote for Trump? I wasn’t going to vote for Trump before, but I am now.

    • lyn says:

      The arrogance of the political class is disgusting. I cannot see Nervous Nellie Rubio or Quacky Duck Cruz as president. Trump is worth the risk.

  43. I’ll tell y’all honestly, debating is not Trump’s strong suit. I just don’t think it will matter one whit. That’s not what anyone cares about this year.

    • He starts out strong and then withers under pressure.

    • Somebody says:

      I agree with you debating is not his strong suit. Especially for political junkies like us. We’re so used to polished, talking points heavy answers.

      I also agree it probably doesn’t matter at least at this point given his opponents. However, should he get the nomination he needs to develop better debating skills. Hillary and the media will skewer him. Plus if he calls her names there will be an epidemic of pearl clutching.

      • votermom says:

        He will win at debates vs Hillary on visuals.
        Cruz would win in debates against anybody, but the media would spin it into a loss

    • taw46 says:

      Trump had some good, strong answers. But he does lose his temper and then all the name calling starts. Shame. But I don’t think it will matter, either.

    • DandyTIger says:

      He’s terrible at it. At least from a political/school debate point of view. His “I’m the big strong man in the room” does come through and has an effect.

      • lyn says:

        Yep. This one was slightly better than the Houston one. The moderators need to be more aggressive when Little Guy and Cruz tag team Trump. Trump handled them better. I think we’ve had enough debates now. Carson was smart to skip it.

  44. DandyTIger says:

    I’m not watching DWTS this time (actually its been a few years now). I couldn’t stomach Marla Maples.

  46. Shot:


  47. lyn says:

    Now we know the rest of the story.

    “An analysis of Federal Election Commission records, by TIME, which was published on 23 October 2015, showed that the 2012 donors to Romney’s campaign were already donating more to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign than they had been donating to any one of the 2016 campaigns of — listed here in declining order below Clinton — Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, George Pataki, or Jim Gilmore. Those major Romney donors also gave a little to two Democrats (other than to Hillary — who, as mentioned, received a lot of donations from these Republican donors): Martin O’Malley, Jim Web, and Lawrence Lessig. (Romney’s donors gave nothing to Bernie Sanders, and nothing to Elizabeth Warren. They don’t want either of those people to become President.)”

    “Therefore, to Republican donors, Hillary Clinton is a more attractive prospect for the U.S. Presidency than was 64% of the then-current 17-member Republican field of candidates.”

    • lyn says:

      “What Hillary’s fairly strong appeal to Romney’s financial backers shows is that the wealthy, because of their access to leaders in government, know and recognize the difference between what a candidate says in public, versus what the winning public official has said to them (in private) and actually does while serving in office. They know that she keeps her promises to them, not her promises to the electorate.

      “Hillary Clinton is a good investment for a billionaire — even for the 70% of them who are Republicans. And, based on those 2015 donation-figures, it seems that they would prefer a President Hillary Clinton, over a President Donald Trump. However, their three favorite candidates, in order, were: Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.”

      • DeniseVB says:

        But DJT isn’t taking money from the donor class. Hills and the rest can be bought and controlled. When people kept sending him money anyhow, he had to set up a donation page on his website for them to use to be in compliance with the FEC.

        • lyn says:

          Isn’t Mitt the Con Man when many of his Republican donors are supporting Hillary? Maybe this is a set up if Trump wins the nomination and loses. The Republicans can blame the voters and change their rules to include super delegates. Also, I read somewhere that donors will not give money to a Trump RNC, so he’s going to have to raise a lot of money for the general election to beat Hillary’s war chest from Dem and GOP donors. #TinFoilFriday

  48. Dora says:

    Another lie from Cruz. I guess it’s best to just not believe anything he says.

  49. Dora says:

    I believe he is right.

  50. Dora says:

  51. DeniseVB says:

    Best debate coverage was here! You guys did great 🙂

  52. votermom says:

  53. helenk3 says:

    if you are broke and out of work, run for president.
    seems like the salary is good and there are a lot of perks
    Hillary paid herself $259,000 from campaign funds

    • DeniseVB says:

      Hillary’s paid herself (and Bill and Chelsea) millions from her non-profit “foundation” money laundering bucket. I can’t wait for the general election 😀

  54. threewickets says:

    What 2016 is about: taking down arrogant elitists, especially on the wealthy left and right coasts. If it takes a Trump to do it, then so be it. Hillary was all about working class Americans in 2008, but haven’t seen that side of her this cycle. If it doesn’t show, then she doesn’t win.

  55. helenk3 says:

    GOP debate. the biggest loser AMERICA

    this is how I felt. is this what we have come to???? Really?

    • DeniseVB says:

      A friend’s daughter, who is fluent in all the Asian languages, works for DHS and is assigned to Central American countries. I always thought that was smart government 😀

  56. Anthony says:

    “…In other news, 2016 GOPe favorite and Boy King Marco Rubio begins his charm offensive, contrasting Donald J. Trump’s non-presidential demeanor with his own more refined tone. Back to you, Bob…”

  57. elliesmom says:

    I love to watch the left eat itself. In this case over Whole Foods selling peeled oranges in plastic containers. Bad for the environment, you lazy people! Why would you not want disabled people to be able to buy oranges they can eat, you heartless souls! (Do you know how many oranges end up in the garbage bin at school because kids either don’t know how to peel them or just don’t have time? Bad lunchbag choice)

  58. Interesting…

  59. lyn says:

    Best comment of the night

  60. Somebody says:

    To everybody that watched the entire debate last night, which I didn’t I missed huge chunks of it. My oldest daughter walked through the door from NC exactly at 9pm.

    Is it true that Trump rolled over on immigration last night? Is it true that he said he was for H1B visas? If Trump is rolling on immigration he will not get the nomination because that is the one issue people cling to of his. Take away his stance on the wall, deporting illegals, curtailing all the imported cheap labor and Trump is nothing but a big gas bag.

    I suppose Trump would still have his stance on trade deals, but if he’s walking back immigration then is he going to walk back his views on trade deals? Is he going to “soften” on China’s currency manipulation???? Softening sure sounds like any other politician to me.

    If Trump really is softening on actual border control, e-verify and importing cheap labor then fuck it, we’ll get the same shit no matter who is in the WH. The only reason anyone would vote for Trump would be for the entertainment value. If he walks back his immigration stance then Hillary will Trump him because vagina and being historic.

    • votermom says:

      I missed that part too.

    • lyn says:

      Rubio attacked Trump for hiring foreign workers at his Florida club, because he said Americans didn’t want seasonal jobs.

      • taw46 says:

        Trump pointed out that what he does is legal, he follows the law. Which allows that, he should have followed up with the fact that people like Rubio and Cruz make the laws. And that they want to increase the number of visas.

    • lyn says:

      And then Cruz hammered Trump about the off-the-record NYT tape about immigration and asked him to release it. A real journalist would not have leaked the tape info to Buzzfeed.

      • taw46 says:

        The media, as we know, have no principles. That was an off the record discussion. If I were a politician, I would never have one of those again.

        • lyn says:

          A saw one media guy mock Trump on Twitter for his journalism ethics. I replied and asked him about Obama’s media lap dogs.

    • Anthony says:

      If you consider giving jobs to foreign workers who come here legally to work a short seasonal job, then the answer would be yes.

      What I got out of the exchange is that a job lasting a few months is not being applied for by anyone who is looking for full time permanent employment, and that the permanent, year round staff is not comprised by foreign workers but US citizens.

      Anybody know if I heard that right? Or is my head still spinning from that hideously rancorous “debate” (i.e. roast)?

      • Anthony says:

        Also, I better learn to pay closer attention to my pronouns. I’m beginning to sound like Common Core English

      • taw46 says:

        Yes, correct. Areas in Florida have a season of about 5 months (Christmas through Easter). Whether they really passed over citizens for those jobs is another question. I do believe that many do not want to take a job that lasts only 5 months with no benefits. Here in the Keys, everything dies down after season, not as many jobs.

        • lyn says:

          The Little Guy kept hammering Trump about 300 applications from Americans that were rejected. Trump needs to do oppo research on Cruz and Le Petit Con.

          • Anthony says:

            I think he saw that the GOPe has shifted their support from Marco to Kasich, and will release a veritable Kraken of oppo research when it finally gets down to Trump and Cruz.

            But what do I know? The GOP is coming across as so nuts and unhinged that it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if their brokered convention picks Megyn Kelly as their nominee

  61. helenk3 says:

    when the size of trumps privates are more important than the status of America’s fundamental transformation

    • taw46 says:

      You won’t hear them talk about it because the elites, the establishment, and the media are just fine with the way it is now. They do not love America and they do not care about its citizens. That is why there is a Trump, as flawed as he may be.
