GOP Post Debate Thoughts

Yesterday's GOP debate proved several things. The GOP can do substance, there were good questions and answers and while there were several tough blows they were all within the bounds of propriety. It also proved what I've said that Trump can do substance. There were solid difference between the candidates and they were highlighted very … Continue reading GOP Post Debate Thoughts

My @TedCruz Debate/Election Comeback Plan vs @realDonaldTrump

I've written several posts on the current electoral situation in the GOP  and noticed some of the statements of the various campaigns that are completely divorced from reality when it comes to dealing with Donald Trump.

Speculation: Twas Videos That Chased the Donald from the #gopdebate

Ok let me preface this post that this is pure speculation. I've been thinking about last night's debate and while I still think Trump's move to skip it was strategic I was asking myself why play prevent?

I’m old enough to remember when Donald Trump was considered Indispensable to GOP Debate

The full folly of Donald Trump's decision to skip the GOP debate is being proven tonight. Tonight has been the worst possible result for him, the GOP debate has been full of substance, strong answers and serious discussion, with plenty of quotable moments that have nothing to do with Donald Trump. That's bad enough, but … Continue reading I’m old enough to remember when Donald Trump was considered Indispensable to GOP Debate

I can't spare this man, he fights Abraham Lincoln on US Grant Yesterday at Instapundit Ed Driscoll is noting the hopeful nature of the GOP pushback against the CNBC moderators.  This post like everything Ed writes is worth your time but I have to take issue with one fact presented in this paragraph and the … Continue reading No Ed: Ted Cruz “Punched Back” and the rest of the GOP lemmings followed

The 14 Amendment & Federal Laws Both Are Flexible, unless your name is Kim Davis

As I've been writing a lot about the Kim Davis situation I was very interested in how it would come up in the Presidential debate on Wednesday, however the subject didn't so much point out the differences in the GOP position as it pointed out the seemingly contrary positions of both media and the selective … Continue reading The 14 Amendment & Federal Laws Both Are Flexible, unless your name is Kim Davis

Gop Debate #2 Live blog (constant updates)

Final Update:  The more I think about it the more I'm thinking Fox accomplished exactly what they were looking for.  More on Saturday morning.

We are constantly told by women that they are strong, assertive who are equals to … Continue reading Gop Debate #2 Live blog (constant updates)

My advice to each candidate … Continue reading Gop Debate #1 Running updates

While the MSM will be looking for individual gaffes the reality is they are all or have been at … Continue reading My Pre-Debate Thoughts Five Points

More debates mean more informed votes

I've seen a lot of commentary about the number of GOP debates there have been and how more debates add nothing to the pool of knowledge. To many of our media friends and to some of my fellow bloggers today's debate will be a matter or obligation rather than interest. They have heard point after … Continue reading More debates mean more informed votes

The small lie: We want substance in debates!

"Work hard, then, on the disappointment or anticlimax which is certainly coming to the patient during his first few weeks as a churchman.

Looking at the Vegas debate from the outside

Last month in Maine without my computer I noticed the incredible between what actually takes place and what the media reports. Last night due to a last minute migration to a TV less room and the distractions of a rather exciting session of Age of Mythology with my friends I had that feeling again getting … Continue reading Looking at the Vegas debate from the outside
