It might just be me, but I feel as if Trump, Carson, and Fiorina wasn't given much time. It was very Kasich, Cruz, Rubio, and Bush oriented.

Kasich was pretty much ignored. And I approve of that.

Anti-climatic end.

Did anyone else think Carson, overall, seemed almost stoned? But some analyst just declared him the winner.


Paul shutting down Trump was the highlight to me.

Analysts are also pushing Rubio...I could care less.

Wild card for me - Fiorina. But I don't like it.

Dodd-Frank is the distraction from Glass-Steagle.

It's BS nonsense.


(repeal of ) Glass-Steagal paved the way to 2008....

It's long since past when that bill should have been RE-INSTATED...

It hasn't, that should show folks who OUR ELECTED are looking to protect...

My bet is that after show is going to be glamouring over how well Rubio did.

LOL I just checked, and now I know why he has a dot org website...

Exactly! We need to reinstate GS and forget about the propaganda about Dodd-Frank.

The real question we should be asking here tonight is.. Will the Democratic debate have these types of questions?

If you mean diversions from the real issues , than yes.

I've said several times that Carson looks stoned. I respect his right to do so, but shouldn't be in charge of things.

Ever heard of a Banc?

It's *like* a bank, but it's not a bank.




Banq (also Banc, banc-corp, bancorp, or bancorporation) is an intentionally erroneous spelling of the word bank, but pronounced the same way. It has been adopted by companies which are not banks but wish to appear as such, and satisfy legal restrictions on the usage of the word bank.
...

For instance, if the original company is known as Bank of America, then the new investment banking entity may be known as Banc of America Securities LLC. If the original company is known as Bank of Manhattan, then its insurance business might be known as "Banc of Manhattan Insurance" and its holding company might be called "Manhattan Bancorp". This practice originates from legal necessity: Under the laws of most states, a corporation may only use the word "bank" in its name if it has obtained a banking charter under state or federal banking laws.

I see it all the time, most people just assume "Banc of America" is just a misspelling...

I think the difference in the questions shows the difference in what is important to Republican voters vs. Democrat voters....or at least what the candidates of either party want their supporters to care about. Remember, we only get to hear any politician talk about the issues they want to talk about.

So, we ought to be asking ourselves during each debate from each party -- why are these people talking about these issues? What issues can realistically be worked on with a gridlocked congress?

I think the biggest problem we face is obstructionist policies from each party. We will never solve problems if we just stand around pointing fingers and blaming the other guy.

Who's left on the left?

Hilary, Sanders...... and.... the guy I wanted to hear more from, Webb, .. is already out...

I would hope that the left would still have MORE to choose from at this point...

It's almost thread worthy.

- Carson's blinking, body language and slurred speech.

- Trump's speaking only in superlative sound bites and robot gestures.

- Jeb's bemused disdain

- Rubio's reliance on his victimhood status

- Rand's indignant rage that people don't get

- Cruz's intellectualization of even humane issues

- Fiorina's efforts to talk tough to over-compensate for her gender among traditional GOP voters

I admit it, I would like to have heard Webb's answers to those questions. Get rid of Kasich, bring Webb in

This is the only debate I've watched. I am watching from the perspective of a foreigner(!!!!!) so my views are probably only of entertainment value, but in my own country I am a conservative, but much more socialist oriented than US conservatives, which is quite a common stance, whatever the country, in the northern parts of the planet where most economies are a hybrid socialist/capitalist mix.

However, it was a treat to hear American conservatives sharing their views and ideas. It's very "exotic". It's good to see that the pulse beat of the greatest experiment in government ever launched anywhere on the planet still can be felt.

I think there is a lot of intelligence in the Republican pack, but the candidates I remember most in the aftermath of tonight's proceedings are, Carly Fiorina, Mark Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump.

All of the candidates, to me, spoke with most intelligence on the economy and government and with the least intelligence on international affairs, although there were interesting and sometimes unpopular opinions stated, notably by Rand Paul on military spending.

If debate, itself, were to decide who is going to be the Republican candidate, Jeb Bush would be saving a lot of money if he just folded immediately, because he was almost invisible on stage tonight and when he was visible, wrong or right, he was unimpressive and unconvincing.

The Donald interests me because he is more statesmanlike vis a vis the Russians. I think he is realistic about military power. He is less bumptious and bellicose than Fiorina and some of the other candidates.

Bottom line, if I were voting in the US tomorrow, I would vote Trump. I know he has been all over the map on policy over the years, but I think he has the smarts to be President, and I can get used to the hair.

I appreciate the your perspective and understand your points and see where you are coming from.


The problem with trump is his background is just as bad as a politician. Meaning his actions don't match his rhetoric and has done some very shady deals in the past.

There was a documentary made of Trump that included past associates, friends, employees, and even his biographer if I recall correctly that painted a very bad picture on the real trump.

IMO at the end of the day for trump there is Trump and the planet Trump , everything else doesn't matter.

At this point I don't know what's sarcasm or satire and what's real.

Lol

But I think you were being serious with that question
