Trump is criticizing Vicente Fox about the language he used about not paying for the wall? Hypocrite much?

I honestly am beginning to think people simply hate DC and the media just that much. They may not like Trump, but they hate them more.
Marco Rubio correctly states that one day, the Deficit is going to simply blow up in our face. Every Republican warns about this, but nothing is ever done. For years, people have complained about politicians making empty promises. They simply ignored us..and continued making empty promises. Now, here in 2016, the American people are done with the same old crap

Rand Paul was the only one was the Sane one.
To bad he dropped out.
But seeing who were the Trump supporters majority of them looked as if they lived in caves.

I bet Trump already trademarked "Low Energy Jeb"
That title will end up in the history books for sure.
He bought Jeb's web domain.
I was wrong too. I thought the GOP would install Jeb as their Candidate.
When Jimmy Carter was President Iran was holding our hostages.
Reagan said "If I'm President and they don't release our people,
The bombing starts five minutes after I'm sworn in".
They released our people as he was being sworn in.
They Nation was really down. Reagan made us proud again.
Trump has some of that Reagan fight.
But negotiations for the hostages’ release started well before Election Day. In September 1980, the Iranians contacted the Carter administration with a proposal, according to Gary Sick, a Columbia University professor and the author of October Surprise: America's Hostages in Iran and the Election of Ronald Reagan.
The agreement that led to the release involved $11 billion to $12 billion in Iranian assets that Carter had frozen 10 days after the seizure of the U.S. embassy. Sick told us that the Iranians feared having to start negotiations over with a new administration and believed that they had extracted most of the benefits from holding the hostages.
Carter informed Reagan at 8:31 a.m. that the release of the hostages was imminent, according to a contemporary report in the New York Times. "The hostages, whose 14 months of captivity had been a central focus of the presidential contest last year, took off from Tehran in two Boeing 727 airplanes at 12:25 p.m., Eastern standard time, the very moment that Mr. Reagan was concluding his solemn Inaugural Address at the United States Capitol," its report says. Reagan announced the news at 2:15 p.m. at a luncheon with congressional leaders in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall. So Reagan, not Carter, got to bask in the glow of the hostages’ safe return.
Despite the showy announcement, scholars of the period say that Reagan did not play any significant role in freeing the hostages.

Have faith in Reason
Can I have faith that Bernie will die and/or disappear after saying more cryptic/mangled garbage grammar?
Because they are not appealing to them on the issues but rather via a gimmick by speaking Spanish in a American Presidential debate. Its condescending in a way.Their are many educated English speaking Hispanics in this country.

Last nights "debate" convinced me that American politics is a meaningless, surreal, adolescent, reality show mainly appealing to the "poorly educated" .....
How can anyone with any awareness at all, take it seriously?
Ownership though the government to control the production and distribution of private goods and services.
...which doesn't work. There's a reason there are business owners that oversee the production of private production. The more cooks, the worse the stew.
There was absolutely no need to ask 1 question in Spanish, that was just political pandering.
