    You may have made it possible to speak over PC, but the reason part not so much…..

    • Ron

      Sorry I meant “he”….. Donald Trump

  • H_B

    There are no brakes, on the TRUMP TRAIN!!

    • nonncom

      There may be….and Carly Fiorina has her hand on the handle….

      • bill

        Hardly. I was hopeful that Fiorina would be a good add to the mix, but this video se recently posted is really just the same female vs. male stuff that we really don’t need. We are Americans first and foremost and candidates that emphasize that are in the pool. The ones that want to play the same divisive voting block politics are not in my book.

          Agree, however she did comment that this her attempt to appeal to females is a direct attack on the Democrat line that their are such a thing as Women’s issues instead of American issues. Of course being a politician – who knows to what degree you can give this any credence.

            Her various flashes of Misandry are why I can’t get behind Carly.

    • Oliver Heaviside

      Which means it’ll derail at the first curve….

      • H_B

        I can’t believe *no one* here gets that internet meme…

  • The light Priebus sees ain’t end of the tunnel, it’s a train at full throttle and Trump as engineer, coming straight at him and his wingtipped brethren…and nothing I just saw on CNN is going to save them.

  • Indeed, that light is not the exit, but the oncoming Trump Train!

    WOOooOOOH! WOOooOOOH!

  • Iconoclast

    Well, I gotta go against the tide here. Going into the debate, while Trump was somewhere among my ‘possibles,’ it was below #1. Now, after seeing what was, to me, his incredibly boorish behavior: extraordinarily shallow, sophomoric & arrogant, I wrote him off the dance card. Seriously, this guy is just another Øbutthead, with simplistic talking points which appeal to conservatives rather than leftist loons. None of the candidates seemed inclined to remain on subject, much less provide definitive answers, yet Trump’s comments were mostly Don Rickles’ zingers rather than providing particulars about exactly *how* he plans to accomplish things. Much like soetoro’s 2008 campaign.

    • Agree. if Trump were the real thing – a White nationalist/populist – he’d get what George Wallace and Huey Long got: a bullet. Not going to happen because it doesn’t need to; though I’ll concede he’s got Krauthammer’s and George Will’s panties all in a bunch. In short, just another voting trap for the Whites. Moreover, if Trump somehow got to the WH and tried to deport the invasives and close the border…an alliance of Demoncrats and neo-con Republiscam Cuckservatives would impeach, convict, and remove him in a matter of days. It’s going to take SystemCollapse and civil war/race war to restore the American Nation

      Please indulge me in a minor nit, but Cruz did stay on point, focused and specific in his answers (when he was allowed to talk, which was shamefully limited, with Tapper cutting him off when he did).

  • Calvin

    I have to disagree with Iconoclast. I am not on the board the Trump train yet but it is wrong to compare Barry with Donald. Donald has a life time of accomplishing and completing things whereas the current occupant of the Oval Office did not in 2008. Just about everything that he can put on his resume since then doesn’t look so good.

    • Exactly! Soetoro has done sweet fuck all in it’s life, but The Donald has built shit. Lots of shit. Accumulated massive wealth via the sweat of his brow, vs the gifting of the mullahs. I want to see Trump/Cruz 2016. Every one of the candidates has a place in the cabinet, actually, but the top two I just mentioned. Sept 23 has massive reference, to include them making some sort of statement together. Wonder what will happen on this “Blue Moon”?

    • Iconoclast

      Just to make it clear, I’m well aware the petulant community organizer has never done anything productive since it stopped scooping ice cream, while Trump, regardless of his ego, has worked tirelessly to build a business empire.

      The similarity is in the arrogance and petulance, the in-the-face “me, Me, ME!” world view. Now, maybe, if this is mostly an act (I suspect I’m being mighty generous with those conditionals), Trump can work with people quite capable of saying “NO!” and making it stick. Maybe.

      We need a CiC with smarts & a spine. This disqualifies the dimocraps as a group at the outset. It also disqualifies the likes of jebby & Pataki. Mighty telling that the Drudge poll shows all the ‘moderate’ candidates coming in clustered at about 1% while the ones with at least some credence as conservatives poll at 4% and above.

    • Alan

      Not so sure about the “completing” things – he’s built businesses, but his record includes a whole lot of businesses he left when the leaving was good for him, and didn’t survive his leaving for very long. We’d be wise to make sure the other half of any Trump ticket has determination and persistence.

  • Bill G

    Looking at Donny Boys whole record I do not see him taking us anywhere I want to go.
    He is, though, definitely a trainwreck for the BIRPT. (Beltway Insider Rapid Political Transit)

  • Chas C-Q

    I must have watched another debate. Donald Trump bleated one foolish talking point after another, each time running out the clock just repeating himself over and over and over. The Dems, especially the media, are loving this. They look forward to Trump losing the general election.

    Carly Fiorina was a perfect foil to Trump. She’s a businessperson who pays attention to things other than her own narrow daily interests, and who expresses cogent thoughts, and conservative opinions, in complete sentences; paragraphs, even.

    I could be happy electing her, or Cruz or Walker. The rest, to varying degrees and for differing reasons, not so much.

    • Chas C-Q

      For “foolish,” substitute “half-baked.” It’s not that everything Trump said was stupid per se, but that it’s obvious he’s never thought long or hard or deeply about anything that didn’t go directly to his own bottom line.

      When people think of an American businessmen as a vain, shallow, selfish blowhard, they’re picturing Donald Trump.

    • Iconoclast

      Apparently we were watching the same channel! Trump’s histrionics were incredibly juvenile and props to Sen. Paul for accurately labeling his antics as “schoolyard.” Christie, too, as much as it pains me to speak well of the RINO. His exaggerated facial expressions made me think of the class ham in the 4th Grade play. THIS is a business tycoon, a Presidential candidate? Given this behavior, even Cankles might seem like the adult in the room.

    • nonncom

      Carly was the bright light on that stage last night….a lot of what went on involving Trump and Bush was just embarrassing…cringe worthy….Carly lends credibility to the Republicans once again….Rubio was second….the rest, throw ’em in a bag….

      • I’m afraid that bright light was her flaming out, ruining any chance she might have had at the veep slot where her contribution would have been dragging a bunch of yelladog females in on her skirt tails.

    • OpenTheDoor

      So, in other words, you like a presidential candidate who can talk until the audiences eyes glaze over from boredom?
      Voters don’t want a has been candidate, they want somebody who has a reputation for doing what he says he will do.
      News flash, the President hires those people you speak of. We don’t want a president who knows everything, we want a president who knows enough to hire people who know everything and then listen to them.

  • Unca Walt

    Lessee… A deep background as a Community Organizer…

    I wonder if Trump will receive the Nobel Prize for what he MIGHT do?

  • OpenTheDoor

    Well, I won’t be voting for Trump in the primary. If he wins the nomination I will gladly vote for the guy. We vote 3rd, if there is a tie to break, I may eat those words. I recall another Republican candidate who was considered a bombastic blowhard by the party leaders (GOPe). The NY Sun described him as “irrepressible, belligerent, and enthusiastic”, sound familiar? This candidate was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and had an off the cuff manner that frustrated many of the establishment types. He flew in the face of the “rich” making them pay their “fair share” and stopping special interest legislation from making them richer. He loved the US and defended our way of life relentlessly and without apology to anybody.
    The only presidential candidates I can think of who rivaled this President in the application of ridicule is Bush II and Trump.
    His list of achievements make Trump pale by comparison but there is no denying Trump his kudos, the man does know how to get stuff done.
    He was shot, just as our beloved president Raygun was, you couldn’t keep the man down. He adorns the Mt Rushmore memorial as a reminder of his greatness so slow your roll folks you just may be in for a ruff ride.
    The candidate and eventual president who went on to have a long and distinguished political and civil rights career?
    Remember the toy made in his honour, our beloved President and famous political reformer, Teddy Bear.

    • OpenTheDoor

      Seem to be unable to put the name Roosevelt and greatness in the same post.
      “To destroy this invisible Government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. This country belongs to the people. Its resources, its business, its laws, its institutions, should be utilized, maintained, or altered in whatever manner will best promote the general interest. This assertion is explicit… Mr. Wilson must know that every monopoly in the United States opposes the Progressive[before Prog became a commie word] party… I challenge him… to name the monopoly that did support the Progressive[Ibid.] party, whether… the Sugar Trust, the US Steel Trust, the Harvester Trust, the Standard Oil Trust, the Tobacco Trust, or any other… Ours was the only program to which they objected, and they supported either Mr. Wilson or Mr. Taft.” – TR

      • S Hooks

        Unfortunately, the truth behind the Teddy Roosevelt mythology is much more sinister. Those very same Trusts you listed (and their wealthy founders, patrons and other “money trust” interests, e.g. J.D. Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, J.P. Morgan et al.) actually funded Roosevelt’s second campaign behind the scenes during the election of 1912. Whether he was merely a dupe, or knowingly complicit is debatable, but the result was the same: the election of Woodrow Wilson.

        The scenario was this: Taft was the favorite, but was opposed to much of the progressive/socialist agenda which Wilson supported (especially the creation of a central bank, i.e. the Federal Reserve). Funding Teddy allowed him to siphon enough conservative votes throw the election to Wilson. As a result we soon got the Federal Reserve, the Thirteenth Amendment (income tax) and the Seventeenth Amendment (direct election of Senators), all of which have proven disastrous, plus setting the stage for the League of Nations/UN/New World Order-style tyranny which is near culmination.

        In short, Teddy was the Ross Perot of 1912, the catalyst which provided the “breakout” stimulus for the globalist agenda.

  • Lotta head-nodding and hand-slapping by Cruz and Carson when The Don was talking; I think they’re positioning for #2. Trump does everything like it’s a business deal, and he knows either of them on his ticket will bring an entourage. Only one likely to bring him a better blind following due to genetics would be Carly, and that ain’t gonna happen…never seen such obvious facial expression of hatred as she showed when DT spoke.

    • OpenTheDoor

      Yepper, lotta hate in that room from the political and intellectual inferiors. The super smart Cruz and obviously talented Carson are well aware of the side of the bread their butter is on. If Trump wins the nomination and choses my man Cruz as his VP, that will be good for the country and set Cruz up for the Presidency. I could then die peacefully knowing my kids will have a chance at knowing the America I grew up in.

  • Rubio had a decent outing too; if we do put the reality teevee star in the big chair, he’d be another that would benefit from demographics and he does have an obamaesque charisma and presence. But I don’t think there’s any spark between them at all.

  • rooftop voter

    Fair notice, I am voting for Trump, not because he is perfect, or even the best choice ( Cruz is ), but let me tell Y’all something, you take any of the other candidates, dearest Carly, Donut boy, or Jebbie the inferior, and you subject them to the bullets from 10 other candidates, fully aided by the Moderators, and you would see epic fail.

    Sorry, we gotta WIN to stay in, and Trump is the only ship I see out there right now that has been thru several Cat. 5 Hurricanes and is floating still.

    If you want the big chair, you had better not be looking at the anklebiters.

    • Alan

      To use a metaphor: Let Trump take point, sure – but you need some smart mission specialists to back him up or the patrol will get nowhere.
      I.e., he just doesn’t show much depth in governance skills.
      We already got one POTUS whose only real skill-set is campaigning, I’m worried The Donald could easily continue the cluster-f*k when faced with the stuff he doesn’t actually know much about.

    • Don Edwards

      @rooftop: “Sorry, we gotta WIN to stay in”

      What do we win by nominating a candidate who either is, or will “compromise” and accept, everything we don’t want? If the choice the Republicans offer us is another thinly-disguised leftist like the last six, wouldn’t it be better for conservatives to say “HELL NO!”?

      • rooftop voter

        Show me a true Conservative who can remotely win…… Heck, we haven’t been able to push an Establishment RINO across the line for years now.

        Conservatives saying hell no equals a further shift leftward. Note i don’t say we need to listen to the Establishment picks though, quite the contrary.

  • Gina

    Cruz is my first choice for the very reasons he won’t get elected: he is a STRICT Constitutionalist and the ideal one to put a couple of justices in SCOTUS that will APPLY the law and not create it, staunch pro-2A, small Govt as the FF intended, hardline on immigration and entitlements, disgusted with both sides of the aisle in Congress and of all candidates, he’s the only one who, if he sends the military anywhere, will actually let slip the dogs of war.

    Since he won’t get elected, I don’t want to see him as anyone’s VP. I’d rather see him as AG. He’d actually return JUSTICE to the DOJ and it still gives him visibility for another run at the top spot.

    The more I listen to Dr. Carson, the more the man impresses me. He actually thinks before he speaks and his sincerity comes through. That said, I think he’s too genteel to be President. I could see a cabinet position for him though, perhaps even SecState.

    Trump is succeeding in two areas: rattling the RINO cages and speaking for the fed up among us. I don’t think he’s stupid and his success in business has been built on surrounding himself with capable people. But I can’t take him seriously until he actually starts telling us exactly how he plans to address the issues we face. And even then, I don’t know that I’d want him representing America on the world stage. He can’t help being a showman and we need a statesman.

    Fiorina has a bit of Maggie Thatcher in her and if we can’t find another Reagan, then another Maggie would do just fine. So, right now, she’s the one I lean towards.

    • Indiana Mike

      Fiorina lost me when she played the victim card. She’s not above sliding into the whole Democrat war on women crapola. My first choice is Cruz also. But him or Gowdy as AG will cause even more Dem (and Republican) fear than if Trump gets elected.

  • Joel

    I have to agree with rooftop. Clearly Fiorina won the debate but won’t be selected. Trump is still sitting there. She was tasked with one job. Take out Trump. She failed, despite her performance in the debate. She FAILED. She will get a bump, while Carson drops back a bit. She still hasn’t been able to deliver.

  • Indiana Mike

    Priebus would rather see Sanders or Hillary as president rather than Trump or Cruz. That’s a fact.

    • rooftop voter

      And that’s the primary reason to make sure he wins.

      We need to shove a sword clean through the Republican establishments hearts……………. Time to kneecap some asshats.

      • rooftop voter

        He = Trump, sorry if I wasn’t clear.

  • Oliver Heaviside

    Trump and “reason”? Not sure about that. 😉 His heart’s in the right place, it’s his head I’m worried about. 😉

    • “His heart’s in the right place, it’s his head I’m worried about.”

      Funny, my reservations re DT are exactly opposite.

  • Pamela

    I didn’t watch or listen. Based on the aftermath conversations, my original thought was validated. It’s on CNN and will be a free-for-all along the lines of The Fleet’s in port for Liberty.
