Republican presidential candidates are beginning 2016 with a full head of steam...
...Trump has ... exploited voter anger with caustic and abrasive rhetoric.
Cruz has played on voter anger to appeal to populist right voters with wild rhetoric like, "We will utterly destroy ... We will carpet bomb ... "If the body of Christ rises up as one and votes our values, we can turn this country around."
...The Republican campaign has deteriorated into a schoolhouse brawl. Candidates resort to personal attacks rather than to offering specific and detailed solutions to America's underlying problems. This is not a campaign of new and exciting ideas; rather it is a misguided crusade that offers voters little hope for those tired of politics as usual.
No wonder so many Republicans are angry.
