    seriously? is this a political debate or a bastardized version of "Let's Make a Deal" meets "Siegfried and Roy"?

    let the clown carnival for the masses roll on!

    I think they keep setting up these debates hoping Jeb Bush will finally make a splash... but so far we've only gotten belly flops.

    Kasich and Jeb need to save the GOP in this last debate. Otherwise, the conservative electorates are split into three factions.

    Siegfried and Roy have a better chance of saving the GOP

    Yet they're fading into the background...

    I think Trump's advantage is that he's the most extreme of the extremists.icon_confused.gif

    Rubio is doing okay, but he's also the only one who threw gays under the bus in his opening statement.icon_evil.gif

    southbeach1500 saidTotally ridiculous how the networks have turned this into show biz. And to call them "debates" is laughable. "Candidate Q&A" would be a better term.

    Meanwhile, here's a photo of the Democrat debate stage:

    latest?cb=20150317090032

    Oh yeah, that's right. The Democrats aren't having any debates.


    Thinks the debates are ridiculous. Wishes there were more.

    It's like an old joke. Two women go to lunch. The first one says, "Boy, the food in this place is terrible!" And the second one says, "Yes. And such small portions!"

    Another substantive GOP debate. All good to great except Ben Carson and Rand Paul.

    man, I think I know more than most of these idiots lol

    the US Navy just launched a new $3 BILLION destroyer out of Maine (with 2 more in the works)

    the US Navy has 500 ships (more than China and Russia combined)

    the US has 14,000 friggin' military aircraft (more than China, Russia and France COMBINED!)

    how many military and spy satellites do we have? god only knows

    these political hacks don't know shit

    #Jebisadope (seriously . . . and Carly and Christie are knuckle-head idiots too)

    These guys and girl with the exception 2 or 3 are really knowledgeable. So many on this stage who would be a fine competent president.

    The audience sounds like they're there for a pro wrestling show.

    Trump seems steady.

    Cruz isn't on his game; too long winded without saying anything a listener can hold onto.

    Trump, Rubio and Kasich make their points.

    The others are complete losers because they all keep talking when the audience wants them to stop.

    Cruz lost it. He bored the audience while he kept talking and talking and talking.

    Didn't at all like what Cruz just did with his filibuster.

    It's Kasich, Rubio, Trump then Christie. Jeb is much better. Cruz is way off his game.

    Both very strong, but Kasich better.

    If you're so fucking smart, what are your solutions?

    Instead of insults and ad hominem attacks, what are your solutions? You're here listening to this and all you bring foward is "assholes and idiots". Certainly you're not that stupid. You hear the topics ... what would you do?

    ^^

    solution to what? ISIS?

    I would halt every single dollar of foreign aid to the feckless, corrupt nations of Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey tomorrow until they routed out ISIS together

    I would either issue a visa to or deport every illegal alien for starters (they would need to pay some tuition to attend public schools also)

    Israel? Unleash them and they'll rout it out.

    That's one of about 25 - 30 topics. The rest?

    let's see:

    reinstate the original Glass-Steagall Act

    make the Justice Deptartment use the Sherman Antitrust Act, the Clayton Antitrust Act and the Federal Trade Commission Act to start suing medical companies (and hospitals) for price-fixing, racketeering and monopolistic business practices

    get rid of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
